Sleep didn't come easily for Eren. Every little noise annoyed him. He was embarrassed, in his mind for no reason. Armin was sleeping restlessly, pressed up against his chest. His lips twitched in his sleep and Eren tried not to watch them. He felt strange. He loved Armin like a brother, not romantically. In fact, he couldn't recall a time when he loved anyone romantically. But Armin looked adorable. He shook his head; he needed to stop thinking like that and sleep. They had another hard day of mind numbing work in the frozen fields of the land fill.

Finally he drifted off to a soft sleep. His dream was pleasant and yet, it unnerved him a little. He dreamed of touches, gasps, soft, wanting moans, lips against lips, fingers gliding along flushed and heated skin. If asked, he wouldn't be able to recall of whom he was dreaming.

He woke with a start. The room was black and silent aside from the snores of others. It took a moment for his eyes to focus. Armin had waked him up.

"What's wrong Armin?" Eren asked, a little saddened that he was unable to finish that mesmerizing dream.

"You were moaning and thrashing." Armin murmured, purposely not mentioning that Eren's erect member was pressing against him. "You woke me. Were you having a nightmare again?"

"N-no. I'm fine, Armin." He couldn't believe that his dream, and a dream like that no less, had caused him to wake his bed-mate. "Just go back to sleep."

He knew in the back of his mind that he had an erection and he hoped that Armin didn't know that it was there. Eren wanted to roll over and put his back to Armin, but the cot they shared was too small for that.

"Eren…" Armin looked up at Eren's blushing face. "Let me help you with that."

They both were stunned with what had just come out of the blonde's mouth. Armin had no idea what possessed him to say something like that aloud and Eren was just plain shocked. Small, calloused hands slid down Eren's torso. They trembled slightly, terrified and embarrassed.
