Black Rose sat as she had for nearly an hour so far, motionless, with her legs crossed, suspended between two trees via her ODM gear, this was one of her usual means for practice, physically it aided her balance and endurance, being able to remain motionless while suspended so long was a great testament to her skill with her gear, but mainly this training was for her mind, she spent this time thinking, what she thought about varied but mostly she either thought about Titans or how she could better herself, currently she thought of both, she of course knew of the current situation, and of the search for new shifters, and with the infamous Colossal and Armored titans suspected of being shifters as well there was no doubt in her mind more of them would show up sooner or later, and she hoped she would have a proper chance at them before the higher ups could go back to arguing over what do to with them. She opened her eyes, looking up toward the sky for a few moments, before retracting her cables and dropping down onto her feet, "Only a fool keeps his enemies close... better to simply remove them" she thinks spitefully at what she saw as little more than political nonsense.

But as frustrated as she now was she knew she would be able to vent soon enough, with the regiment planning a scouting mission once again she would be able to hopefully add a few more kills to her record. And so she headed back toward their HQ for now.

Rose had been on her way to the training field, Erwin was still rearranging the squads for the next mission to adjust for the last missions casualties, so for now she simply had nothing to do but return to training. However, on her way past the stables she heard someone grumbling, "Lousy MP... think i'm not busy enough with all our other horses that she has to dump hers on me too... and i'll probably get written up if there's a speck of dirt on her or something" she heard him complain to himself, hearing that someone from the Military Police was here immediately made her suspicious, "MP? what business does the MP have being here? Chief Erwin was already let off for the damage from the capture of the Female Titan so why..." Rose thought to herself as she continued on toward the training field.

Of course she didn't have to wait long, the moment she entered the training field she spotted the girl, she stuck out like a sore thumb, having a strong hate of the MP for generally being lazy, cowardly, and abusive of their authority, she kept her distance for now and started training on a dummy on the opposite side of the field, though she made sure to keep an eye on the girl, still suspicious of why she was here.

" As for Mister Grey, well you're staring at him. I go by James, Jim, Katana, or Katana Jim. It's very nice to meet you Miss um?"

Lilith was surprised that the Scouting Legion soldier had extended a hand in greeting--she'd been told that they were largely violent and uncouth. This man seemed to be very polite and wasn't particularly lacking in decorum.

" Lilith, Lilith Einzbern of House Einzbern. I'm eager to work with you also. It'll likely be the first time I've ever ventured beyond the wall, but that'll be part of my liaison job. I suppose someone from the Military Police has to actually do something for once. It would seem as if I didn't even bring my maneuver gear with me. "

She grinned, but then noticed as she was shaking Jame's hands that she didn't put her gloves on today. With any luck he wouldn't notice the scars from...then on her arm. Lilith made a mental note to pull them on as soon as possible before anyone else noticed and wondered if she was mentally stable.

" Anyways, you might be worried that I'm here to arrest random people following the incident with the Jaegar boy, but I can assure you I'm here so that our respective branches can start patching up our differences. Unless you're a Titan, I don't think I'll need to kill you. You're not a Titan right?"

Although she said it in a joking tone, Lilith was dead serious. Her orders were to hunt down any possible shifters, and bring them back to Wall Sina if she found any through any means. She saw another member of the Scouting Legion at the other side of the field arrive and glare daggers at her.

" Who is that person? He or she seems to be glaring at me for no reasons."

James noticed Lillith's scars and made a mental note to maybe be friendly and compare scars later on if she earns his trust, which with her being a Member of the Military Police, will be hard on him. James actually laughed at her joking tone of him being a Titan as he shook his head.

"No last time I checked I wasn't, but my mother was Asian, does that count?" He said as he stifled another laugh. "Sorry, I don't mean to be insulting to my own mother, she'd kill me if she knew I told that one." He then stopped as he spotted Rose working on a dummy as she actually glared at Lillith and the latter asking for her identity.

"She," James said to Lillith to confirm Rose's gender, "is Black Rose. That's her nickname cause she wears that Garrison Unit pendant. The reason she's glaring at you is most likely obvious. She doesn't trust you or your branch. Heck, she doesn't trust anybody and I'm in her unit! But I'm sure you'll patch things up starting with her."

Rose continued striking at the dummy for a few minutes, somewhat frustrated at being unable to hear the pair across the field clearly, though she can tell they're saying something about her, though for the moment she doesn't show any sign she's even paying them any mind, soon enough however she decided it best not to let herself get involved, wanting as little to do with the Military Police as possible, especially with how odd it seemed that the first thing she had done was go to James Grey, while she didn't think badly of him, the way he avoided others always seemed somewhat suspicious, though she had never truly been concerned enough do anything.

So for the time being she sheathed her blades, leaving the mutilated dummy behind as she made her way back across the field toward a nearby hill, a place she often went to relax on these occasions she had too much time on her hands. She gave one last look toward the pair, "Hmph... so long as that brat doesn't interfere with our mission i don't care" she thought with contempt

Lilith sighed as James told him about Rose. She seemed like the average person who had a burning hatred for the Military Police. Granted, a lot of soldiers in the Military Police were lazy and corrupt, but not everyone was. James also said something about patching relations up between the Military Police and the Scouting Legion with Rose, so Lilith realized she'd have to deal with her, and pocketed the information about James having Oriental blood in the back of her mind. It could be useful in background checks later on.

"Well thank you Mr. Grey. It was a pleasure talking to you, but I'll need to talk to other members of your squad now. I will come find you later."

As Lilith walked away, another Scouting Legion soldier ran up to James, out of breath.

" I just got orders from Erwin. It seems he wants a couple squads to go check on a couple safe houses and supply stashes in Wall Maria. He wants to make sure we can deploy again next time. He chose your squad and several others for this expedition. Erwin also wants you to take the Military Police girl to him later; careful through I heard she's a noble from Wall Sina, so don't do anything you'd regret later on."

Lilith saw Rose walking away from a dummy and towards a nearby hill. She sighed and caught up with Rose.
" Hello there Ms. Rose, I'm Lilith von Einzbern of the Military Police. I've been appointed liaison to the Scouting Legion, and I have been embedded within your unit. I was wondering if you'd mind telling me a little about yourself?"

Rose stops momentarily, glancing back at the girl with a very clear look of dislike, "Tch.... of course..." Rose thinks angrily, resuming her walk to the hill without another look back, "There's nothing to tell, i kill titans, simple as that" she says coldly, making it clear she had no desire to talk about herself or to her, and she simply wanted nothing to do with whatever this girl was really here for, the 'liaison' thing was clearly a cheap lie, but the real reason she couldn't guess, she suspected something to do with Erwin or maybe Levi, or something related to the shifters everyone was so concerned about now but given the only confirmed hostile one was in the MP she had no clue why they would be investigating the scouts so soon.

She stopped once again, looking back at Lilith, "word of advice... either tell the truth about why you're here or find a better excuse than liaison, most of us aren't gonna fall for that" she says bluntly as she once more resumes her walk, passing over the crest of the hill out of Lilith's sight, she intended to simply go this far but kept walking a little ways to a small spot surrounded by a few trees to hopefully avoid Lilith, laying down in the grass, she gazes up at the clouds overhead, after a few moments she grips her pendant and holds it up where it catches the light, her normally cold expression softening, "mom..."

James raised an eyebrow almost in slight surprise and intrigue. "Our little police officer didn't mention that." he thought. That made him slightly suspicious as why a noble would be here as an MP officer. "Alright, I'll make sure the others know by supper tonight and we'll pull out and be well prepared in the morning. I'll let Miss Einzbern over there know her presence is requested by Erwin."

He turned and walked towards Lillith and watched an even more frustrated Rose leave. "You shouldn't be upset about Rose's situation. Like I said, she hates everyone, or tries to find a good reason to. Anyway, it seems you are expected by Erwin for some odd reason. I'll take you to him if you don't know where his office is?" He looked around slightly confused as how to talk to her. He knew she was an MP, searching for possible traitors, or shifters. The best he could do was either be a friend, stay low and out of her way, or better yet simply just speak when spoken to and still keep a friendly, yet socially awkward and isolated personality.

Lilith frowned at Rose. " What an uncouth commoner." she thought to herself. Well it was not a big issue ; she'd always find a way around it. She always got what she wanted in the end. James then told her that Erwin, the leader of the Scouting Legion wanted to see her. Lilith gave a small sigh; she didn't want to deal with him right now, but her orders were to play nice.

" Yes, of course. Lead the way."

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A group of unsavory individuals gathered in the slums of Wall Rose. The slums being underground, the military had little control over it, and it was generally lawless and survival of the fittest. Three members of the military police, braver than the rest, had ventured down to find criminals and investigate possible shifters. They had been tipped off that there was a meeting of degenerates down, and were now hunting for them. The leader of the three spotted the gathering, and quickly slid off his rifle.

" In the name of the King, you are under arrest! Surrender now or we will open fire."

The gathering glanced over at this outburst, but made no effort to move. The Military Police were startled, for they were used to everyone being afraid of the Military Police. The leader was about to open fire when he saw a blade in his throat. In a matter of seconds, the trio of Military Police had been disposed of.

" Very good. Now that the pests have been exterminated, I want to thank all of you for coming here today. It would seem that the shifters from beyond the wall have failed in their recent attempts to penetrate into the city. All of you are here for some reason-- to avenge loved ones, to take vengeance on those who wronged you, or simply because you want to overthrow the monarchy. Together, we can prove to the rest of humanity that we are superior and a force to be reckoned with. We are not dogs for the monarchy to kill, nor are we cattle for the Titans to feed on. Together, we can also make our counter attack and retake our world. It has come to my attention that the Scouting Legion is sending out another expedition soon, and that the Garrison is still recovering from the Battle for Trost. We will take this opportunity for the monarchy to hear our roar. This revolution has begun. "

A dull roar began to fill the slums, and the gathering slowly moved back up towards the city. Their day of reckoning approached.

Rose stayed there in that spot for a fair while, watching the clouds pass overhead as old memories played by in her mind, a somber look on her face as she was lost in thought. It was a short time later that she heard someone approaching, "great... what is it now?" she thought as she awaited the person without bothering to get up, it was one of the newer recruits, who seemed somewhat nervous, which in all honesty was fair given her reputation of snapping on anyone who interrupted this time of hers, "C-chief Erwin needs to see you, there's a meeting for that mission to c-check the supply caches" he stuttered nervously, "Fine, i'll be there soon" she answered, the boy nodded to her and took his leave. Rose stayed there for another moment before getting up and heading towards the meeting room.

As she entered the room, she glanced around the room, Erwin and Levi were at one end of the table with a map spread out, and James along with a certain Military Police officer were there as well, Erwin looked up at her as she came in, "alright, you're the last one here Black Rose, so let's go over the briefing for the mission" he said. "Erwin does briefings only for the groups that are together so we don't have to worry about who else is where... of course I'm stuck with the high born brat." Rose thought spitefully as she approached the table.

Erwin looked between the trio before starting, "alright, here's what we need to do, we're going out to check on several equipment caches out between the walls, we're checking four in total, and rather than send out a full expedition for this, i'm sending several groups of four out to check each one, the smaller groups will go directly to their assigned cache, and once you've checked you are to return immediately, the plan is that the smaller groups will be much less of a target for any titans, and as you will be together, you should be able to handle any individual titans you meet, if there is an emergency, do not hesitate to retreat." Erwin explained, before nodding to Levi, who continued, "The three of you and myself will be going to the second cache, around 3-4 hours from the gate" he explained, tracing out their route out on the map "there's a few scattered wooded areas on the way, but otherwise it's all open field, so if we encounter a titan, do not engage it if you don't need too. I know our... guest... has no actual battle experience, which is why she's been placed in this team, between myself, Black Rose, and James, we have the skill needed to make up for that, Lilith, do not try to prove anything if a confrontation happens, hold back for one of us to assist, that'll be all, we're leaving at sunrise, check over your gear tonight and get some rest, dismissed" he explained, nodding to the trio, then to Erwin, as he took his leave, Erwin remained to brief the next team that would come in, Rose wasted no time in leaving behind Levi, "Don't get us killed brat" Rose snapped at Lilith, clearly unhappy at being stuck with her, "At least Captain Levi can pick up her slack" she thought to herself

James nodded and walked her to the office. When he discovered it was a meeting he sat in and pulled his family Katana from his belt and held it by the pommel in a bored fashion. Then he discovered Rose entering as well and gave a wordless gesture of greeting to her as he observed the meeting. The instructions seemed pretty valid enough. Levi would lead him, Rose, and Miss Lillith to the cache to check on it.

Upon getting the dismissal call from the captain he got up in small enthusiasm. "Alright then! I'll pack and see you all in the morning then!" He said to Levi as he walked to Lillith. "Hey there, no real need to worry just yet. Like what the Captain said, We'll get you out of harms way if a Titan comes. No real need to worry about a simple routine checkup for supplies. You'll do fine police girl." He added the last two words with a small smirk.

"Well good night, sleep tight and we will see you in the morning." James said as he walked off to his quarters to get his supplies and gear together for the morning.

" Don't get us killed brat."

Lilith was startled by the contempt that Rose had for her. It would seem that her family was right about some commoners ; they were just downright barbaric. Despite this, Lilith smiled and replied " Don't worry. I have no intention of dying yet."
Turning back towards the plans on the table, Lilith wondered if maybe Erwin really was trying to kill her between Rose and the Titans. He didn't seem like the sort of person, but one didn't become the commander of the Scouting Legion by being nice. Worst comes to it, she was sure that the great hero Levi would ensure success of the squad.

" Of course Chief Erwin, I'll leave the titan killing to the Scouting Legion. I'm only here to ensure that future incidents between the Police and the Legion don't occur again. That being said, I do hope to be less of a burden in the future."

She smiled and gave a salute to Erwin and began walking out of the room. She saw James and gave him a nod; he seemed to be a decent fellow, unlike Rose. Perhaps if she was really lucky, Lilith would be able to arrest Rose as a shiftier.
As she walked back to the stables, she realized that many members of the Scouting Legion were glaring at her , althrough none of them said anything. Lilith sighed ; other members of the Military Police had brought such a bad reputation to the branch and it was making her jobs incredibly difficult. Just as she was planning to leave on Illya, a soldier ran up to her and informed her that Erwin had given her lodgings on the premise. Thankfully it was mostly separate from the rest of the barracks, so she wouldn't be sleeping in a nest of vipers. She fell onto the bed and drifted off, wondering if he would've been proud of her.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lilith was woken up by banging on her door. Apparently Erwins' definition of sunrise was very different from her's. She hurriedly got dressed and realized that she still hadn't sent for her 3D gear to be sent over to her. Feeling very embarrassed now, she began wondering what to do. The only weapon she had brought with her was a rifle that was standard issue, and as far as she was aware, rifles did absolutely nothing against a titan trying to eat her. Well, the Scouting Legion didn't seem to think very much of her anyways, so might as will fufill their expectation. Putting aside her pride, she asked directions to Jame's squad's barracks and eventually made her way there. When she got there, she finally found Jack and unintentially timidly asked

"D-does your squad happen to have extra 3D Maneuver Gear? "

James was busy getting his horse ready for the mission ahead. He heard Lillith speak to him as he turned to her voice asking about spare maneuver gear. He was silent for a few moments before shaking his head with a smile. "Wait here. I'll be right back." He muttered as he went into a supply room and came back out with a set of 3DM gear. Giving it to Lilith he spoke again.

"This was a friend's. Make sure you make good use of it, and don't die. I think you'd not make a good friend if you die on the first official day we try to get along." James stated as he climbed onto his horse pulling up his hood and joining up with some of the other scouts. Including Rose. He knew her and Lillith would probably arrest or kill him if he shifted during this mission. So he decided to keep things on low in terms of Titan abilities. Do not use unless he had to.

"We all ready to go Captain?"

Levi looked over his group as they stood before the soon to be open gate, it was just them and the garrison soldiers minding the gate, along with the smaller groups they were also going in intervals to check their respective caches, which, while taking much longer minimized overall risk, the first group, Hange Zoe's, had even come back without so much as sighting a titan, which was good news for Levi's group. "Ok, here's how we're doing this, keep a wide formation, far enough apart that that you can just barely see each others' faces, i'm on point, Rose, you're on the right side, James, the left, Lilith, you're bringing up the rear, pay close attention to your surroundings, fire a flare immediately upon sighting a titan and we'll adjust our course or engage as needed, we're not stopping if we don't need to until we get to the cache site. understood?" he explained, he turned and nodded toward the garrison soldier, who in turn signaled his partner as they began to open the gate.

Rose nodded her understanding of the order and took her position, she shot one glance back to Lilith, a look of spite on her face, "complete fool, didn't have her own gear and didn't think to get a spare before now, hmph... pathetic" she thought darkly, her opinion of the girl dropping further the more she saw of her. Not only that but they were now effectively stuck together for somewhere between 6 and 8 hours if the mission went well, she pulled up her hood and readied herself, "maybe i'll feel better if i get the chance to kill something..." she thought idly, soon the gate was open enough, "Let's move!" Levi called as they charged out

The squad set out on the supply check and met few obstacles. A titan had been sighted, but it was still at a distance, and a minor course adjustment ensured that the squad wouldn't need to engage it in combat. Lilith gave a sigh of boredom ; she thought that going on an expedition with the (in)famous Scouting Legion and Captain Levi would be more eventful than her general every day assignments within the Walls. The presence of both Rose and Levi made Lilith uncomfortable striking up a conversation with James, or anyone else for the matter. With both the girl who hated her and the man who always seemed to have a stick lodged deep up his ass, there didn't really seem like anyone was willing to hold or allow a conversation to go on.

Lilith was about to ask if they could break for she had never ridden so long, but she remembered who was in her squad. Then again, what was there to lose? The Scouting Legion didn't think much of her anyways. Suddenly she heard a distant rumbling sound--out here it could only mean one thing : a titan.

" Titan incoming. At the speed its moving, it's probably an aberrant." Lilith fired her flare and unslung her rifle, more for the comforting weight in her hand then its actual ability to kill a titan.

James rode with the group for awhile. Always sensing that Lillith was getting bored of the ride he turned and flashed a small smile and gave a look that said, 'We don't normally run into Titans, so don't worry too much.' James should know. He usually joined the expeditions where Titans were cleared out. He'd covertly use his secret's advantage to scout ahead of the group and defeat Titans ahead of time.

James snapped out of his Reverie as he heard the same thing Lillith stated. He sighed as he stated to Lillith, "We'll take care of it Miss Lillith, no need to worry too much. Besides, although I understand the comfort of a gun, I find rifles and pistols uncivilized." He then turned to Levi. "Orders sir?"

Rose looked back in the direction of the incoming noise, she spotted it quickly, after all it was quite hard to miss an 8 meter titan sprinting full speed toward them, "good... now i can blow off some steam" Rose thought as she drew her blades, already making to turn toward the titan, "8 meter class sir" Rose called to Levi before he spoke up, "James, keep back with Lilith! Rose and i will deal with the abnormal." He ordered, turning along with Rose directly toward the incoming creature. They pair split with perfect precision to either side of the titan, who hesitated briefly before continuing toward James and Lilith, possibly thinking them more important or unable to fight back.

Rose moved first, hooking her ODM's grapple into the titans shoulder and launching up toward its eyes, it made to catch her but she expertly twisted midair and hacked off its fingers in one smooth motion, steam and blood pouring from the wound. Levi hooked onto it's back and went for a direct kill strike, but the titan suddenly jerked its head back, not enough to hit Levi, not by a long shot, but the motion was enough to keep his strike from being deep enough to kill it. Rose once more launched toward its eyes, the titan moved its head and opened its mouth, but Rose was one step ahead, a jet from her gear shot her toward its right, and with single swipe of her blades she cut through its jaw, its mouth then hanging limply open, "Let's see you eat someone now you bastard!!" Rose yelled, and while a minor and temporary wound normally against a titan, she had provided just the distraction Levi needed to end it, hacking off a huge chunk of its neck, the titan falling to the ground as a pillar of steam poured from its body.

Rose sheathed her blades, a look of contempt on her face as she glared at the dissolving corpse, Levi wiped the blood from his own blades before sheathing them as he always did. Both were about to remount their horses when Levi's gaze snapped up toward the horizon, he re drew his blades, Rose followed his gaze and saw what he was looking at. "Look alive, it seems we got some attention, we've got a 15 meter and a 7 meter approaching from the south, and a 4 meter from the east, they've already seen us, get ready, James, you and Lilith are on the 4 meter, Rose, the 7 meter, go" he ordered as he himself of course went for the 15 meter, Rose didn't hesitate to obey, a look of hate and rage on her face as she went for her target as well.

Lilith had heard the stories of Captain Levi, but she was still surprised at how fast the managed to take out a titan, an abnormal at that too. She also had to admit for all the hatred that Rose showed towers her, Rose was still fairly good at her job of killing titans. For the first time since her fiance had died, Lilith felt a thrill. Even through it had been a titan intent on eating her, she'd felt excitement for the first time.

None of the three scouts had shifted into a titan, but Lilith still kept her scrutiny on them. You never know when one of them might feel the need to shift, and maybe kill her as an "accident." Suddenly, Levi spotted three additional titans heading torwards them and ordered her and James to engage the smallest titan. She drew her blades and wondered if she could actually take the titan. Her ODM maneuvering skills were better than most other members of the Military Legion, but none of them had actually ever engaged a titan before.

" Ah to hell with it. I can do this." Lilith fire the cable at the titan and rocketed towards it. Too late however, she realized she had miscalculated the distance. She flew in too low and her arm slammed into ground and there was a horrifying sound that sounded suspiciously like a snap. Lilith bit back a scream and whisted for her horse Illya. The titan seemed to have notice she was underfood and started to reach for her. Lilith grabbed the rifle off of Illya's saddle and shot the titan's eye. Even titans had to feel pain. She climbed on to Illya with her one good hand and fire off a second shot at the titan, hoping that it would buy James enough time to secure a kill.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Back in the walls, the Walls were bustling with activity. In Wall Rose, most of the market place continued to move goods back and forth, and many were swapping news about the recent developments. Some were saying the Scouting Legion were all traitors and hiding titans, while others were saying they were actually all just cattle herded up by the military.

All of a sudden, the ground rumbled and steam filled the air. A titan had suddenly appeared and started rampaging through the city. The garrison started to respond towards this disaster when reports started streaming in of a second titan appearing at the other end of the wall. By the time the garrison managed to evacuate citizens towards safer areas int he wall, the titans had already disappeared. The revolution had now begun.

James launched from his horse as he flew around on his 3DM gear trying to get a good hit on the 4 meter's neck. Then he saw Lillith make a slight miscalculation and heard a definite sound of something snapping. His eyes shot wide in alarm, the Titan took notice of it too but it seemed even with one arm out of commission, she still had the guts to distract it for him. Smirking now he shot out towards the 4 meter's neck as Lillith's shots distracted the titan for the few short seconds it took him to slice through its neck and tear out it's weakness.

He shot back down to his horse and climbed on it before riding towards Lillith in slight worry and alarm. "Broken or dislocated?" He asked and upon receiving an answer he grabbed the reins of her horse. "Come on we gotta back up a bit and give the others a bit of room whilst I have a look at that arm. Ever been treated on the Field before?" He asked as he led Lillith and himself away from the fight yet still in Earshot from Levi and Rose if they shouted something or gave an order. "Okay Miss Lillith, let's have a look at that arm."

Rose was quick in killing the 7 meter, she hooked her grapple into the titan's gut and went between its legs, with a sharp twist and spin she sliced both its achillies tendons and sent it crashing down just as she came up and around to cut its neck. Levi was clearly quicker, as he had already cleaned and sheathed his blades by the time Rose finished. They both re mounted their horses and made their way toward the other two, and it didn't take much to see Lilith was injured. While she hadn't seen exactly what happened Rose had heard the other girl firing her rifle, and it certainly didn't take much effort from there to figure out what had happened, and Rose was not going to remain quiet when they got up close and saw Lilith's arm.

"I knew this would happen, i knew it, not only can this brat not even use her ODM properly but she even tried to use a rifle on a titan! Captain Levi i know we're almost halfway there but we need to turn around now and take her back before this fool gets herself or us killed." Rose demanded, quite harshly. For the moment Levi didn't respond, he brushed James aside as he inspected her injury, "badly dislocated shoulder and fractured, maybe broken elbow" he stated, he gripped her shoulder and with a rough couple of strikes there was a loud crack as he forced it back into its joint without apparent regard for any pain, she would be able to move it again but it'd still hurt quite badly for a while "James, get a sling for her arm..." he ordered as he turned back and remounted his horse, "Rose isn't wrong, i specifically ordered you not to do something like this, basic training does not account for these situations when there isn't the optimal environment for our gear, and no one ever does well the first time against a titan." he stated, in her state she wasn't going to be fighting more titans, she was only a liability, and with such a small group to begin with they couldn't take the risk.

"we're going back to base, once we get back, James will take her to get treatment for her arm" he stated, already turning his horse around back towards Wall Rose. Without some very good convincing Lilith's mission wasn't going to last much longer...

((just figured i'd say, but if you guys wanna use Levi you can, i'm not calling dibs on him or anything))

Lilith gritted her teeth in pain as Levi and Rose lectured her. They had a point, but it was likely she would have died if she didn't engage the titan. Illya had never experienced a titan before either , and might have bucked her off. She gave a cry of pain and suprise when Levi punched her shoulder back into place, but noticed the worst of the pain was ebbing away now.

" Captain Levi, I'd be a liability either way, with my arm or without. It likely doesn't make a difference whether or not I am able to use both arms. I've been a liability from the start, and you have been willing to accept that. It won't matter if I die or not--my family has disowned me anyways so they won't raise a fuss. Finish the mission, we're almost there anyways, aren't we?"

Her familly hadn't actually disowned her yet, but Lilith was worried that they would turn back. She'd come this far into the outside for the first time, and she was determined to make the most of it. Also with her condition, if any of them were shifters, it'd be more likely for them to shift now.

James gave a small glare at the others before giving Lillith the sling. "If we don't check that supply line, Erwin is going to have our hides. So we have no choice Levi, we either keep going or risk losing daylight arguing about the subject-" He felt the long cold stare of Levi's eyes that stopped James from talking any further. He swallowed in nervousness at the stare, as if the one look, told him everything.

"I get it, you're right, without a full team we'd be screwed next titan we came across but I know how to fight those blasted things! Rose can kill them almost as fast as you can too! We have a slight edge! But of course if we don't get Lillith's arm treated she'd lose an arm." James sighed. "You two go on ahead then. I'll take Lillith to get her arm treated."

He grabbed Illya's reins and started to lead both her and Lillith back to Wall Rose. "I think the last line you said to them back there was kinda nice, but that usually doesn't faze someone like Levi. It's just that stare, brr, gives even me the willies." He stated almost shuddering. "Something doesn't feel right though, the route should have been cleared of Titans. I should know, I was one of the scouting parties last week that made sure myself."

Levi held his peace for a moment before he spoke, "She's right, we're roughly halfway there now, and it would only slow down our expedition plans if we have to change things now, we'll keep going, revised formation, I'll be on point, Rose will take the rear, James and Lilith, you two will be between us, move out" he said firmly, already turning and heading back out on the way toward the cache, "James isn't wrong... titans may be constantly moving around looking for people but there wasn't the slightest sign of activity in this area so soon... this many this fast isn't normal, something isn't right..." Levi thought

Rose scowled, clearly not happy about the captain's decision, but she silently obeyed, moving back to her assigned position, while unhappy she did fully trust the captain, knowing he had something more than just the mission going through his head if he suddenly changed his mind so quickly, no doubt related to what James had said, "it's been a week... surely a few being this close together after that long isn't so off... especially with an abnormal around" she thought, though neither her nor Levi had even the slightest inkling of what was now going on within the supposed safety of Wall Rose.

Damage reports began flooding back into Wall Sina and Wall Rose's Garrison HQs. The very random, and sudden titan appearances in the middle of the "safety" had resulted in pass panic and hysteria, along with damages to both military and civilian infrastructure. Several commanders noted the horrifyingly "human" tactics the titans seemed to have employed. Fearing a second titan attack, orders were sent to the Scouting Legion to bring back its entire force back to the walls to act as another line of defense, much to both the Scouting Legion and Military Police command's chagrin. Erwin sent out a messenger to Levi's group, but wasn't sure if he'd make it given the multitude of titan sightings recently.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lilith smiled at Jame's attempt to comfort her. " It's alright, I can tell I'm not really wanted here at all." As James started to lead her away, she was very surprised that Levi told them to stay. It had been well within her expectations for her to be dismissed or possibly abandoned. With her remaining arm, she guided Illya between Levi and Rose. Suddenly a black flare appeared in the distance, followed by others. She struggled to remember what it meant, but knew it was likely a very bad occurance given Levi's sudden shift in body language.

" One of the other squads must have spotted or engaged an abnormal again. This is definitely not normal." As he spoke, the ground started quaking as several titans began chasing Levi's squad.

" Tch, again. We can't fight all of them now."

James looked and followed the three close behind until he saw the black flares. "Damn it! If we had Jaeger with us we would have a good chance.." James muttered to himself. He looked behind him and saw another group coming for them. "You gotta be kidding me! Levi, don't you have one of those shells that emits noises on you?" The stare given to him had all but confirmed that the answer to his questions were ultimately, no.

"Well, if only we could chop those trees maybe we can slow 'em down until we can get to the cache and then move in for a counter attack." James suggested trying his hardest not to sound like he was itching to fight them and letting the others head for the cache, leaving him space and privacy to change and engage the Titans on their level.
