((I’mma trashcan :3 here ya go))
I can’t believe I’m doing this…
Jean thought to himself, making his way towards Eren. They were in the dining hall, so Eren of course was sitting with Mikasa and Armin like he always did. Once he’d reached their table, he stood behind Eren and tapped him lightly on the shoulder.
"Hey, Eren. Can I talk to you for a minute? I won’t keep you long.” he asked, trying to keep the confident demeanor that he usually had. When he’d succeeded at pulling Eren away from the table so that they were by themselves, he let out a heavy sigh. “Eren, I’m just gonna tell you straight up…not holding back. For the longest now I’ve had the biggest crush on you. Hell, maybe I could even say I’m in love with you. And I’m just wondering…if maybe you feel the same.” he spoke rather quickly, forcing himself to hold eye contact despite how nervous he really was. He wanted Eren to know that, though forward and poorly said, he was being sincere. It was awkward since honestly they never really got along, but in all that time Jean was simply hiding how he really felt.
Eren didn’t say anything; he needed a few minutes to accept that this wasn’t some sort of a weird dream. When Jean called him he expected a fight to break out, he expected to be punched or for something else to happen. Anything else but a love confession! He kept staring at Jean as he waited for a reply. It amazed him how the blond was serious about this, maybe he could give him a chance. Maybe…
"Alright." He rubbed the back of his head "I’ll be your boyfriend horse face so let’s get along." The brunet smiled and offered a hand to the other "Let’s get along from now on."
Jean blinked in surprise at the response, not actually expecting the shorter male to accept.
”Wow…alright, it’s a deal. No more arguing, hm?” he nodded, accepting Eren’s hand and using his free arm to pull the other into a hug. “You have no idea how happy I am right now. Pretending to hate you was getting pretty old.” he laughed softly, shaking his head simply at the thought of how childish they’d both been.
