Shohei sat on the dry, wooden bench. Both hands stuff into his jacket's pockets. His red and white jacket, specifically. He had a lot on his mind lately, he had felt as if he had befriended a few people lately. - People he could trust. Those he could depend on in making him have a good time. He had been alone in this world ever since he entered it. Perhaps he deserved a little more joy, just a little. He gazed up at the sky with his relaxed yet relatively sore eyelids that were halfway down. Next to him sat Reiner, his armored titan. Not in his original form, but his human form. Reiner had short pale silvery-blonde hair with small yellow eyes, he was muscular and big. He stood about six foot. In this case, he was more like a talking buddy and bodyguard. - Some titans he had ever since he was just a kid, some always looked after him. Reiner was like an over-protective big brother. He had a stoic face and crossed arms as he wore his usual outfit. Shohei had his hair covering his eyes from Reiner's perspective, he seemed a bit down.. Shohei, that is. Reiner glanced over at him and nudged him with his shoulder, his arms still crossed. "What's wrong? I know you are a gloomy person, but you are usually chipper in the afternoon. And why aren't you listening to music? Don't you humans love that sorta thing?" Obviously Reiner seemed a bit forward but concerned nonetheless. And the titans didn't know much about human society. So It was normal. Shohei kept his straight face and gently whipped the hair out of his face as he sat upwards, despite how short his messy hair was. He then maintained his hands in his pockets as he looked at Reiner with his brown eyes, "What made you think that? I am just thinking about something that could effect us both.."
"Thinking, huh? About what?" Reiner said as he kept his stoic looked but his tone was obviously eager for words. He unfolded his crossed arms and scooted closer to Shohei. Shohei sustained his position as he gazed off into the nothing. "Well.. I guess I've been opening myself up to the world lately, and because of that I was able to make friends. Ones that I'm sure won't betray me. You and the others have always been looking out for me, I feel pathetic because of that. You are usually the one looking out for me. And I am sorry for that. But I guess all relationships between summoner and summon are like that.. I don't feel as if I should treat you as tool rather then my friends, best of friends. But I don't want to be all you have. I don't want to be your only natural desire to protect. I think.. I'd like to join a guild. I know I've been guildless for my whole life, but the road to our dreams earlier are starting to shift and shape into something better. Wouldn't you like that? I think we need more allies then enemies, and a guild is a good place to start.. That is what I'd like to think anyway. You already know how I feel about guilds. I don't feel as if I belong in any guild, but I am just trying to think what's best for me, and for you titans. But then again, guildmasters in my point of view are pathetic, I'm not gonna waltz in and just say I wanna join a that guild.. If I do that, I don't know what I'm in for. I'd need some facts about that guild before I go tattooing my flesh and claiming to be that guild's member. Ha!"
Despite his reasonable thinking, he still had a rather annoying attitude, and appeared pretty careless. Reiner kept a straight face as he watched Shohei chuckle and smile all the same. "Well.. Shohei. It's not like we're going to stop you from doing that. As you said, not only do you want it, us titans want the best for you.. and ourselves to be honest. I'm not gonna lie, you've always been a cute but shady guy. You deserve more then you've been given. Joining a guild is a good thing to do, but that doesn't mean we titans will just hand you off into someone else's care. No matter who's command you're under, you have to get our approval before you go doing all that!" Reiner smirked and pointed his thumb to his chest. Shohei stuck his tongue out, "Since when do I need your approval? What are you? - My mom?" Shohei chuckled. "I might as well damn be! " Reiner laughed. In the end they both ended up laughing and smiling. "But hey, let's get you that guild, eh?" Reiner playfully punched Shohei on the shoulder.
Shohei smiled before rubbing the area he was hit.
