Eren clenched his fists, his nails dug painfully into his palms. Was this really how it was going to end? He lifted his gaze from his lap to the figure resting peacefully in the bed beside him, the man's breathing was shallow.

"Armin... I..." His words died in his throat.

Armin was no longer the youthful boy Eren knew as a child. Eren wiped the tears that fell from his eyes with the back of his hand. How did this happen? How? He was outliving everyone... He knew it was because of this damn titan form... but still. He cursed the fact he was still in the body of a teenager, this gift meant nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Eren reached out, brushing a strand of white hair from Armin's face. Eren choked back a sob.

"Armin." He grasped the man's wrinkled hand in his own. "I'm sorry." He let the tears flow freely, "I'm sorry we never got to the the ocean." He squeezed his eyes shut, "We got to see outside these damn walls though." He let out a bitter laugh, "We got a small taste of what's out there."

"But, I swear to you, I'll make it there someday." He lightly squeezed the hand he held captive in his own. "I'll see the ocean."

He pulled his seat closer to the bed. Eren leaned over, placing a chaste kiss to Armin's forehead. "I love you." Armin's breathing was becoming more ragged, Eren knew there was only a matter of time. Eren would stay until the end, he wouldn't leave his best friend alone.
