She is a General and I am just an engineer.

I know this is weird but I cannot help it.

Before, I was a coward, unable to do anything but shake and whimper in my boots.

But beside her, I know I can fight.

I know that beside her I can accomplish anything.

But thats a given right? I mean, she is a valkyria so of course shes inspiring.

So why do I feel this way? Why is it that around her I feel so...uplifted, I could say.

I don't know what to say but I know one thing.

She is my General, I am her engineer.

And I will be at her side, til the day I die.
