    Summary

    She turned—picking up the bat as she did—and started back to her bag. At home plate she looked up and noticed Levi, creeping on her between the lines of the backstop. She stopped and swung the bat over onto her shoulder, studying him.

    But she didn't chastise him like Levi thought she would. “You wanna join in?” she invited with a half-mad smile.

    Levi folded his arms. “Something tells me I'd fear for my life.”

    She chuckled and tapped the bat on her shoulder a few times. “I don't bite on the first date.”

    Summary

    Not to lay blame, but Levi is strongly of the opinion that had his mother never forced him into his robe and his sandals and out the front door on the eve of the One-Night Bridge, he might never have run into his classmates by the lake, and he might never have had to deal with What Happened to Armin. And, perhaps most importantly, Levi might never have spent the summer before his final year in high school swanning around a forest in the country with a girl and a book and a tally in one dog-eared corner.

    But as it stands, she did, and everything that might not have followed, did follow.

    Levi still isn’t entirely sure how he feels about that.

    Summary

    Prequel to We Who Found Home

    In the unforgiving desert, Hanji and Levi have a violent first meeting.

     

    "The hall was dim, lit only by the invisible source of light around the bend. In the dark, he was just able to make out messy brown hair and a gray, ratty jacket.

    His attacker – the woman – Hanji? Rolled once and was back on her feet. She charged him with a shout.

    Hopping back, he threw up his hands. “I’m not here to fight you, damn it!”

    She barreled straight into him. As her shoulder struck his chest, the air left his lungs in a wheezing cough. His boots slid over rock as he struggled to remain on his feet. He grabbed for her hair, but then the shoulder against his sternum was gone. Instead, a fist flew at his face."

    Summary

    The rain had started up again. Fat droplets drummed over her hood, drenching the fabric. Her horse’s reins were wet and cold; though her fingers, numbed from continued exposure to the elements, could hardly feel them.

    Following the sound of the explosion, they’d arrived at a clearing. It was a mess of blackened, shattered wood, and the wagon, a skeleton, was little more than a smoking husk. Beyond the wreckage, a titan lay prostrate. Felled, its limp, hulking form was barely visible through the rain.

    As soldiers shouted, pointing at the creature, one of the horses still tethered to the ruined wagon, writhed. When the beast screamed a broken, panicked wail, her own horse shifted, flanks twitching with unease.

    Hanji barely noticed.

    The soldiers' voices, the poor beast’s screams, even the heavy, even thrum of rain - had silenced as she looked to the river.

    A body lay at the edge of the dark, white-capped water.

    Summary

    Takes place between events in chapter 90 of the manga. Hange, now commander of Survey Corps, commissions Captain Levi to scout territory in the mountains to search for a supply tower she believes may still be stocked. The scouts need all the supplies and currency they can get in order to carry on with their goals. Against his better judgment, Levi joins her on this excursion. The bitter, early winter makes their mission harder than expected, however. The pair find themselves relying on each other to survive, and they find it increasingly difficult to treat one another as comrades in arms and nothing more.
