It was dinner time. You walked towards the mess hall, with Mikasa, Armin, and Eren. You grabbed your food and sat at your usual table, with everyone sitting there already. As you sat down, you noticed that Sasha seemed a little uncomfortable.
"Sasha, what's wrong?" The brunette quickly shot her head up and stared at you bewildered. Potato was spread all over her lips and she sighed.
"I was just thinking...why do girls have periods?" The boys all gulped down their food simultaneously. Their faces turned red and they tried to evade from this awkward conversation topic. You dropped your spoon and pondered about it, stroking your chin.
"Well, I think it's to prove that we can make babies I guess." The boys and Sasha still seemed confused, but you decided to let them think about it themselves. That's when you noticed Mikasa staring oddly at her food, slight confusion on her face. "Mikasa?" She broke from her trance, and looked at you in the eye. Her expression was normal as she opened her mouth to speak.
"How do you make babies?" Her expression stayed the same and everyone spit out all contents of their mouth. Jean looked at Mikasa surprised.
"You mean you don't know?" Mikasa shook her head left and right vigorously. Jean blushed and averted his gaze. Mikasa was still confused, and you tried to explain it to her.
"Well, it's kinda like this." You put one of your hands in a circle and you pointed your pointer finger. "And-"
"OKAY THAT'S ENOUGH." Connie stopped you before you inserted your pointer finger into the hole. You dropped both your hands and Mikasa looked relieved and disappointed at the same time. Then, Connie looked confused. "What's it like to have a period?" All the girls groaned. You were the first to speak up.
"Try to imagine blood coming out of your ding-a-ling for seven days once a month." Connie thought about it and his face contorted into a mixture of pain and disgust. You looked at each boy and looked at their expressions. Jeans face showed that his mind was now scarred for life. Connie looked like he wanted to throw up. Bertholdt was a mess of disgust and discomfort. Reiner was sitting, staring at his food looking like he was thinking deeply about life. Erens brows were furrowed and he looked frightened. Armins eyes were wide and he was trembling. The girls scoffed simultaneously.
"Exactly." You heard Ymir say matter-of-factly. You felt a sudden cold air behind you.
"Why the hell are you cadets talking about this during dinner?" Everyone attention turned towards the person behind you. You slowly turned your head, eyes wide. You saw the Corporal standing begun you, arms crossed. He stared at you with those unforgiving eyes and you shrank under his intense gaze. You stayed silent and he groaned. "I asked you a question, cadet." You gulped, and tried to answer him.
"We-well I, uh-" you stopped mid-sentence when Connie spoke up.
"If you were listening to us, try to imagine what it would feel like." Everyone then turned their attention at Connie. 'That stupid baldie! He is so in for it now.' You thought to yourself. The baldies arms were crossed, and his eyes were closed in a snobby way. He opened one of his eyes to look at the Corporal. The Corporals face turned into a snarl, and his eyes showed a great measurement of discomfort. Connie smiled triumphantly and the Corporal walked off with a "tch". You broke into a wide grin and high-fived him.
"You just saved my life." All the other boys still seemed uncomfortable. Then they all stood up one by one.
"I don't think I'm going to finish eating." Reiner said quietly as he walked off. Sasha broke into a wide grin.
"More for me!" She yelled before she began stuffing food in her face.
