It was a dark night. He walked down the corridor. It was cold and unfeeling. But it was always dark. It had always been this way.
Only tonight, the emptiness and the pain of the black sky could be felt more acutely. Every thought hung in his mind like thick, gray smoke in the air. Even if he wished them away, he knew they would remain.
And so he also knew when he heard low, muffled cries that they came from her room.
"Are you completely insane? Come away from the door. You know very well it’s a blizzard out there."
He could hear her pout as she moved back; back to where he sat on the floor. She knelt down beside him, her lower lip still puckered out in frustration and disappointment.

5) I really like Middle Eastern food. ^-^

"…It’s okay," Mako murmured, leaning in so the words were just for them two, "I can’t focus either…"
"Do you see that? Do you see that horizon?!" she exclaimed, her voice ringing off the canyon walls.
"…Looks downright smudged to me," he whispered under his breath, but just loud enough to make her turn around.
And she beamed even so at him, as if he had given the sky’s looks a compliment; as if he had said something worth making her smile that smile of hers.
(That was like my first SnK anythiing besides one video so spare me. XD)
