3. Man Up

   One month later I stood beside Jacob along with the other new recruits outside the field, each one was shaking for his or her own reason, and they were standing ready. A tall man walked up to the front, and his appearance didn't help my nerves. His face was covered in scars, one that stood out went from his left eye and ran down across, ending under the right side of his chin. The man was dress in brown pants, and white shirt, and a long cloak with the emblem sign of the Scouts, and he wasn't happy. "LISTEN UP PINT SWABS!" We all flinched, even me who was in the back heard him as if he was standing in front of me. "I AM HERE TO SHAPEN YOU UP ONLY IF YOU HAVE AN OUNCE OF TALENT. DON'T MAKE ME REGRET MY CHOICE!" He began to walk up and down the rows, speaking to each individual, having them say their name, home town, and why they wished to join. The closer he got the scarier he seemed, and the more terrified I became. "AND WHO ARE YOU?" A boy of the same height as Jacob with brown hair placed his fist over his heart ad spoke. "MY NAME IS KRIS KERTEN. I AM FROM THE WEST WALL AND I WISH TO RETURN THE TITANS FROM WHERE THEY CAME FROM, SIR!" The man looked him up and down, ,then scoffed and flicked his head. "You will make a nice snack for the titans." He turned to me with a look of amusement. "Who are you, princess?" I placed my hand over my heart and opened my mouth, but I couldn't say anything, and he stood waiting. I could feel the eyes of everyone on me like knives to the skin. "I'LL ASK YOU AGAIN, WHO ARE YOU?!" I began to shake, trying to make a sound...but I couldn't. I felt his hands grab my head, lifting me up and I kicked my legs. "WHEN I SPEAK TO YOU, YOU ANSWER YOU LITTLE-" I hit the ground as a flash slammed into the mans arm, making him drop me. Jacob was standing in front of me, his fists clenched, and from what I could see from the others faces, he was mad. He shifted his weight to block me from sight and I could almost hear his growl. "WHAT DID YOU JUST DO?!" Jacob stood dup to his full height, not as tall as the man, and spoke in a low voice, "She is unable to speak at the moment due to the fact that me and her are the only survivors from Wall Maria, the attacked traumatized her, so next time you watch your mouth and find out whom you are speaking to BEFORE you revert to violence." By this time no one, not even the man, was speaking or by the sound of it, breathing. He stood there for a minute before turning his back and walking to the others. Jacob sighed, turned, and took my hand, helping me up. I knew what would happen at dinner now, and sure enough...

   "Tell us again!" "Is it true?" "They threw rocks?!" "I heard they climbed over!" Questions flew at us from every angle and Jacob kept answering. "Yes, they threw rocks, climbed over the wall, and killed." "Come on, tell us again." I couldn't take it, I stood up and walked out, closing the door behind me. I heard the room go deadly quite, then the sound of a fist hitting skin, and someone crashed to the ground before Jacob came out. I turned to him, crossing my arms. "I know, I know. I shouldn't have hit him, but he upset you." I rolled my eyes, "Fine, I won't do it again." He sighed, and I nodded to him smiling. He walked to my side, looking down. "When do you think you will talk again... I miss hearing your laugh...and you scolding me..." For the first time I heard sadness in his voice and I placed my hand on his, opening my mouth, but nothing happened. Jacob sighed and placed his head in his hands, groaning. I spent the rest of the night trying to make a sound besides screaming, like a single word. Nothing. I ended up slamming my fist into a wall causing a guard outside to run in and wrap up my hand, which had started bleeding.
