1. Wonderland

Flashing lights and we

Took a wrong turn and we

Fell down a rabbit hole

*           *           *

My older brother warned me about how guys could be a girl’s worst nightmare.

            Then again, why should I listen to him?  He may be a military leader, but he was still my older brother.

            My short, overprotective older brother.

*           *           *

 

You held on tight to me

Cause nothing’s as it seems

Spinning out of control

*           *           *

As stubborn as I was, I fell for the one guy Levi hated the most.

            Eren Jaeger was everything I could hope for in a guy.  He was brave just as much as he was kind.  He was willing to sacrifice himself in order to save humanity from the Titans.

            After all, Jaeger was the one to comfort me when Levi was injured.

*           *           *

Didn’t they tell us, “Don’t rush into things”?

Didn’t you flash your green eyes at me?

Haven’t you heard what becomes of curious minds?

*           *           *

I spent my meals getting to know Eren better, rather than sitting with Levi the day after Levi got out of the infirmary.  His friends seemed like nice people, and Mikasa, my cousin, just so happened to be his adopted sister.

            As Eren and I sat laughing, I couldn’t stop noticing the glare I got from my brother.

*           *           *

Didn’t it all seem new and exciting?

I felt your arms twisting around me

I should’ve slept with one eye open at night

*           *           *

I didn’t realize I had feelings for Eren until he took me outside after curfew to watch the stars with him.  We were lying in the grass, laughing as always, sharing our deepest secrets, and, by the time dawn came, cuddling and sleeping.

*           *           *

We found wonderland

You and I got lost in it and

We pretended it could last forever

*           *           *

It was definitely a moment I wish I could’ve controlled time because Eren looked so damn cute sleeping.  He looked far more peaceful than one could hope for.

            Listening to his heartbeat as the crickets were singing was definitely a moment I wanted to last for eternity.

*           *           *

We found wonderland

You and I got lost in it and

Life was never worse but never better

In wonderland

In wonderland

In wonderland

In wonderland

*           *           *

Even while out killing Titans, I thought about that night we spent together out in the middle of a field of grass.  Eren knew what I was thinking, and he would give me a smile – and, no, not the cocky or the cheeky grin – but the reassuring one, to let me know he was thinking the same thing.

            Going back behind Wall Maria, Eren pulled me aside.

            “Do you wanna come back out here later?  There’s something I need to show you,” he said.

*           *           *

So we went on our way

Too in love to think straight

All alone or so it seemed

*           *           *

“Sure,” I answered.  “When do you wanna go?”

            He thought for a minute, his green eyes confused.  “Meet me in the cafeteria around seven?” he questioned.

            I giggled.  “Of course,” I answered.

            He grinned.  “Great!  See you then!”  With that, he galloped off on his horse.

*           *           *

But there were strangers watching

Whispers turned to talking

And talking turned to screams

*           *           *

I couldn’t have guessed then, but my brother was eavesdropping.

            I went to his office after the expedition.  Levi’s office was always a safe place for me, especially since we were granted surface citizenship.

            “So, you were talking to Jaeger?” Levi questioned.

            “Yeah.  So?”

            “You’ve been talking to him, or ‘hanging out’ as you put it, quite frequently as of late.”  His grey eyes were full of deadly concern.  “Care to explain?”

            “We’re friends.  Why should it matter to you?”  I stuck my tongue out at him.

            Levi sighed, wiping a nonexistent layer of dust off the top of his kiddie bookshelf.  “You’re my sister.  I don’t want you getting hurt because he was careless in his Titan form.”

            Now I was curious.  “His what?”

            “Never mind.  Go.  Have fun.  You still have a week’s worth of cleaning to do, missy.”  He offered me a small smile.

            I groaned.  “You’ve seriously gotta let it go, Levi.  Your OCD will be the death of me.”

            He laughed as he escorted me out of his office.  It was then, that I heard the underlying disappointment.

            Just because you claim to be friends, Levi seemed to communicate, doesn’t mean I still approve.

*           *           *

Didn’t they tell us, “Don’t rush into things”?

Didn’t you flash your green eyes at me?

Didn’t you calm my fears with a Cheshire cat smile?

*           *           *

I spent the rest of the afternoon hanging out with Sasha.  She can’t seem to stop eating, but she’s fun to hang out with.

            She was one of the first people I told about being Levi’s sister.  As far as she was concerned, I could get special privileges.

            That was until she saw me running laps for hiding his favorite feather duster on him.

            I sat with Eren, Mikasa, Armin, Connie, and Sasha, like I usually did.  I guess I looked a little off, because I flinched when Eren squeezed my hand.

            “You sure about meeting me later?  You look a little worried,” he murmured.

            I nodded.  “I’m still set on it.”

            Mikasa winked.  “You mind me asking what this is all about?”

            Eren squeezed my hand again, this time, not letting it go.  “I asked Serena to meet me later.”

            I blushed deeper than I thought I could as Armin and Connie laughed about a corny joke someone told them.

*           *           *

Didn’t it all seem new and exciting?

I felt your arms twisting around me

It’s all fun and games ‘til somebody loses their mind

*           *           *

As promised, I did meet him later.

            I was still really nervous about it, because Levi had let me off just to hang out with Eren.

            But the teasing, if I ever decided to stick to what I was feeling when I was around Eren, and tell him outright that I liked him more than a friend.  He would probably take it as a joke, despite what I hoped I would hear.

            Hope is a dangerous thing, Levi told me while we were still living in the Underground.  He was dressing some really minor injuries when a few of the other kids decided to pick on me.  One minute, you think you’re getting out alive, the next, several of your best friends are lying dead.

            I’d learned to trust what Levi said, because he was right.  After joining the Survey Corps, I’d lost plenty of people close to me.

            Now, with Eren in my life, I was really confused with how to feel.

            “You’ll swear not to run away?” Eren asked.

            I sighed.  “I told you a thousand times already.  I trust you.  Why would I run away?”

            Eren blushed as I eyed him.  “Because of this?”  He sunk his teeth into his right thumb, deep enough to draw blood.

            In a flash of light, a fifteen-meter class Titan was standing in front of me.

            And, damn, was I ever flustered.

*           *           *

Oh, darling

We found wonderland

You and I got lost in it and

We pretended it could last forever

*           *           *

Its green eyes were watching me with a concern I’d never seen before on a Titan.

            “I’m okay,” I called to it, trying to look at anything but the Titan.  “It’s just, ummm ... well, you’re kinda ... hot?”

            It quirked an eyebrow and almost purred.  I blushed deeper than I should have.

*           *           *

We found wonderland

*           *           *

It was surprising how gentle the Titan was.  Like, it didn’t even hurt me when it poked and prodded me.

            I had the time of my life with that Titan.  It was the sweetest one I could ever ask for.  It even made a crown of flowers for me.

            We watched the sun set, and Eren pulled himself out of its weak spot.  I almost fell back as the Titan’s carcass dissipated.

            “That was you?” I gasped.  I was floored.

            “Yeah.  Don’t worry, I heard what you said,” Eren answered cheekily, grinning.  “What did you think?”

            “To be honest, I liked it.  You treated me like a princess!”

            Eren sighed contentedly, wrapping an arm around my shoulders.  “That’s because I want you to be my princess, Serena.”

            “What?”

            Eren looked at me and laughed.  “It’s obvious you like me!  And I like you.  Wanna go out with me?”

            “If I said yes, would you keep it from Levi?”

            “You know it.”

            With that, we cuddled as we watched the stars.

*           *           *

I reached for you but you were gone

I knew I had to go back home

You searched the world for something else

To make you feel like what we had

And in the end in wonderland

We both went mad

*           *           *

It was way past curfew when we decided to head back.  By then, Levi was pissed.

            “Just don’t,” I snarled weakly.  “Please?  You said have fun.”

            Levi raised an eyebrow.  “He didn’t hurt you, did he?”

            “Surprised, maybe.”  I showed him the flower crown.  “He made me this as a Titan, Levi.  How does that hurt anyone?”

            “You were out past curfew with someone I don’t like.”

            “I was out past curfew with a friend, Levi.  You know Eren won’t let anything bad happen to me.”

            “Tch.  He asked you out, didn’t he?”

            “That’s none of your-”

            “It is my business.  You’re my sister.”

             I heaved a sigh.  “Screw it!  If you want, I’ll do your cleaning tomorrow.  I’ll even sit with you and Hanji, too.”

            “Just so long as you don’t do anything stupid with Jaeger?  Serena Mulan Ackerman, I don’t want you talking to him anymore.”

            I put my foot down.  “Give me a break.  We only talk, and that’s it!”

            “Tch.  My rules.  No more of this.  Now, to bed with you.”  Levi’s eyes were hard as steel as he spoke.

            I shook my head and headed back to the girls’ dorm.

I did as my brother suggested, but I just had to tell Mikasa about everything between Eren and me.

            Mikasa was grinning like an idiot.  “It’s about time,” she laughed.

            Sasha squealed and hugged me.  “I ship it so hard!”

            I returned her hug.  “Thanks.  You guys are the best.”

            Mikasa quirked an eyebrow and her grin faded back to her stone cold expression.  “Don’t tell me:  Levi found out and stopped you from hanging out with him?”

            “Yeah.  He was mad about curfew, but it ended up being about me and Eren.”  I looked at the wilting flower crown in my hands.  “Do you think you could press it? Y’know: so I can keep it?”

            Mikasa took the flowers from me.  “Of course.  I’ll be sure to set you up with a new one if Eren decides in the future he wants to be with you for life.”

            I rolled my eyes and crawled into my bunk, covering myself with the blankets supplied.

            When my eyes finally shut, all I could dream about was Eren’s Titan green eyes.
