Warning! Some tears might be shed, some sort of spoiler if you haven't read the manga, and cussing! And this doesn't involve the anime at all, but let's say this sorta happened a little after they captured Annie!
~*~Third Person's POV~*~
"Hey, Armin!" The said blond turned and greeted his best friend who was accompanied by Mikasa, "What's wrong? You two look tired.." Armin stated making note of the two being out of breath. "We're looking for (name). We were hoping if you've seen her at all today. We just got informed that we and the others are going out of the wall for a little bit, Commander Erwin wants to check out something." Eren replied sighing as the girl besides him looked around "W-what?! But Corporal Levi isn't healed yet, what if something happens!?" Armin exclaimed, waving his hands around as sweat fell from his face. "It's commander's orders." Mikasa says pulling the red fabric over her chin, "I-I see..well alright, I'll get ready with the others. And I think I saw (name) head into the forest; just a bit from the castle and I think by the lake." the duo nodded before running off towards the said direction given by their intelligent blond friend.
(Name) who was in the said forest, simply looked up into the darkening sky and starting humming a soft tone.'My time could be up..they may find out...After all, Annie did give a hint just before she decided to lock herself in the crystal-'This caused the (h/c) female to scowl as she kicked the tree bark besides her, '-I knew I shouldn't have told those three of my secret. But they just want to go home...a home that I never had, a place to be themselves, be with their family..While I was rebelling against them with mother and the others.' (name) sighed sadly before sitting on the large tree branch. The girl only wanted a place to feel loved, happiness, and peace. Not how her childhood was of blood and war; but a place to be with people who trusted her and cared for her. But the world is a cruel place..is it not? (Name) pushed her face into her knees as she began to brush the silver pendent around her neck, bringing back loving memories just before she lost her father.
"(Name)! (Name), where are you!?" She heard Eren call out, jerking the female from her memories "Over here!" She answered dropping down as she was greeted by the teal-green eyed male and his adoptive sister. "Finally! We've been looking all over for you. We have to get ready for a small mission outside of the walls, commander's orders." (Name) stiffened at this statement before faking a sigh "What? Even after that mission to get Annie, he still wants to do things.." Eren nodded in agreement as Mikasa glance at her friend's face, before looking away. "Eren, (name)..we should hurry." The two nodded before the three ran and lined up with their other friends, saluting Erwin as he walked by "Commander!" they yelled earning a nod from the blond. "As you know, you are all joining me and Squad Leader Hanji to go and investigate something we have found out while trying to capture the female titan in the giant forest..There has been sightings of another titan shifter nearby when we first trapped Annie Leonhart-"
This caused Bertholdt, Reiner, and (name) to stiffen at his words as the two males looked over towards the (h/c) girl as Mikasa raised an eyebrow. "-and we are hoping to find this said person, before anything else happens. Hopefully get more information from them." Connie couldn't help but glance around his friends, trying to find an explanation "I know that some of you are still shaken up from our last mission, but after this I wish for you to get all the rest you will need. Now, let's begin our journey!" Jean caught Connie's frightened eyes before returning the salute along with the others. As the group of teens went and seated themselves on their horse; Sasha stayed close to Connie, Ymir near Christa as always, Eren besides Mikasa, and Jean next to Armin. But what surprised them the most was (Name) and the other two males towards the back of their small group, "(Name)?..." Reiner whispers as he caught a glimpse of the girl's eyes. "I know..." Bertholdt frowned as he knew of (name)'s plan if her friends were to be in danger, but hated how the female would threw everything away just for mere humans.

The group quietly left the castle area, heading into the dangerous territory of mankind's enemy. The group continued to make their way north; everything quiet and peaceful, course that peace would soon be destroyed. "(Name)?" Snapping from her thought, the said girl was surprised to find Jean besides her with Reiner taking his place beside Armin "Huh? What is it, Jean?" she asked causing the brunette to blush. "U-uh I just wanted to say, be careful out there." Jean looked away before returning to his spot with Reiner going back besides her "(Name), you know you don't have to do this.." Bertholdt stated, making the (h/c) female give a glare towards the tall teen who looked unfazed. "You can come back with us an-No." The two males gave a look towards each other, before Reiner began to speak "Why not? I mean, you don't belong here with them anyway." (name) was about to object before they heard multiple roars in the distance."A whole group of titans coming our way, most abnormal!" Sasha declared with a scared look in her eyes that made (name) cringe, "Continue onward!" Erwin shouted causing her friends to look at each other before doing so.
Eren frowned as he remembered he couldn't do much since he was still injured to fight, before widening eyes took over as they soon spotted the large forest they have been it some time ago. 'The forest? But why..I mean I know it's to use our 3DMG but for what other reason.'Armin thought looking at Erwin before glancing behind them, freezing at the sight of about 15 titans behind him "My god..." (name)'s eyes shadowed as she shook before shaking her head. 'No..but if I don't help, they'll die! But maybe we'll get through..' Mikasa who was watching her, grew more suspicious then before."Everyone, get into the trees!" Hanji yelled as the group did so, leaving Christa almost getting trampled by the horde if it wasn't for Ymir "(Name)!? What are you doing, get up here!" Connie shouted at the girl who was riding into the horde.
To save the ones I love,
I must do all I can..
Launching onto a titan, she aimed for the kill before going for the next one. The group was about to jump in and help but were stopped by Erwin earning a furious Eren and Jean, "Don't. I want to see something." Hanji looked at the teens sighing as the two boys were about to kill the blond commander if it wasn't for Bertholdt and Reiner.
Even if I bleed or cry,
remember the promise..
"Mom?" 10 year old (name) called out, looking around her home for her mother "Over here, darling!" the girl ran outside and into her mother's arms. "Where'd you go?" The little (h/c) girl asks with bright (e/c) filled with curiosity "I had to talk to some of the warriors." this statement caused her to frown, gripping her mother's skirt. "You are going to fight again? But..I don't want you to go! I'm lonely here!" (mom's name) sighed before giving a melancholic smile, "But then this will help you get more time to train. And learn something..this world is a cruel place and you know that." (Name ) felt tears starting to flow from her eyes. "But why do I always have to train?! All the other kids get to play while I'm here practicing, it's not like am going to become a warrior when I get older!"
Her mother frowned before wiping the salty tears away and giving a smile "You probably will, my dear. If I die, I want you to protect our home and it's people. You are the only one strong enough..." (name)'s quiet sobs filled the air, clutching her mother as if she was to vanish. "(Name)..promise me, if something were to happen and I tell you to run for the walls..If you ever get to meet any friends, protect them with your life." (Name), who didn't understand what her mother was talking about, nodded and watched as a man stood besides her "(Mom's name), we have to hurry. A horde will be coming." the older woman nodded before gently pushing her daughter into their home.
"Stay here until I get back." (Name) didn't object her mother's orders and ran inside the house and sat in her room 'Nothing could happen! Mom is strong enough, she said she was always able to beat dad in a fight so that means she was the strongest in the village.' she grinned, happy to the daughter of the strongest fighter in their village. But froze when hearing the screams of people from outside, "What? But this never happened before.." her (e/c) eyes went wide seeing titans roam the land with titan shifters fighting left and right but were also falling one by one. She fell back when a large skinless hand came crashing down near her window, (name) was scared but turned glad when she recognized it as her mother's titan form. Climbing on, the girl gripped onto the large thumb as her mother began running.
Leaving the scene; (mom's name) scowled seeing titans going after her, she had to reach the walls and get her only child to safety. Her husband had done his job of protecting them, now it was her time. Spotting the said large walls; the woman gotten into a stance that increased her speed, careful not to crush (name), and jumped onto the solid barricade. (Name) who was watching was in awe as she had never seen her mother in her titan form up close, but shook as she jumped and landed at the top was ease. "(Name), hurry and get away. With how things are, you will have to live here." (Mom's name) appeared from the nape of her titan's neck and watched as her daughter shook her head swiftly, "What about you!? " the woman's eyes soften as her titan hand petted her child's soft (h/c) locks.
"I'm sorry.." (Name)'s face was filled with shock as her mother jumped off, leaving the girl to lean over and throw her hand out 'Remember our promise..my dear sweet daughter.' (Mom's name) thought as her titan form crashed into the bodies of nearby titans and began to fight.
I will give my strength,
my blood and soul..
So far about 5 titans were killed and vanishing; leaving the group to be amazed but became stunned when more titans arrived at the scene, hungry for human flesh and blood. "We have to help her!" Christa exclaims as Connie and Sasha jumped off from their branch to join the battle, the others did the some besides the two leaders and Reiner and Bertholdt "(Name)!" Jean shouted watching the said girl all over killing titans. "Jean! Look out!" Armin yelled as he and the brunette were in shock when a large hand went to grab him in midair "Shit!" Jean avoided the titan and went for the kill, the group going for their own target. But Armin knew they were overwhelmed when more of the man-eating beasts arrived, 'What is attracting the titans?' Mikasa thought panting softly as she finished her kill before going for the next one.
If I am to die,
I must show the light to this dark world..
"(Name)?!" Eren yelled catching the attentions of his friends as shock took over them, there inside a titan's month was (name) who was using her strength to pull Sasha out. All bloody and battered; (name) basically lose her gear since if wasn't hanging from her waist, and was using one hand to hold the titan's mouth open while the other was busy pulling her usually hyper friend. Successfully accomplishing the task, (name) gave one last smile before letting the titan slam his mouth shut. Making tears fall from Christa and Sasha; the two teens that were still up in the tree branch were shock along with the others, 'No...' Connie thought tears threatening to fall as he sank into his knees.
Erwin looked away and sighed before going to bring out his flare gun, "Wait..look!" Hanji shouted as the titan that had eaten (name) began to bloat. "Everyone get back here!" the blond commander orders as the group did so. Not long after doing so, a gigantic skinless hand shot out as it ripped the titan apart. There stood a lean but muscular 20 meter titan, (h/l) silky (h/c), an armored body and a lovely pair of (e/c) eyes. But what caught their attention was her nails grower longer and sharper as if they were claws, the group was in awe watching the female titan kill the titans with ease. "Is that..(NAME)?!" Armin screamed not believing his eyes since he never suspected his sisterly figure friend, as the others were also in shock.
I must tell them,
tell my dream and darkest secret..

"She even has the same battle stance.." Mikasa noted, her grey eyes scanning the female's arms and leg position "I wish I wouldn't have to show you...what a monster I am." (Name)'s voice rang through their heads. As her titan let tears fall but they turned frozen and shatter upon impact "I only wished to keep living with all of you, while keeping my secret...Hell, I wish for the extinction of the titans and peace for the world." Jean just gave a small sad chuckle, knowing the girl would be smiling. "My only regret, is that when my secret is out...I'll have to leave." They questioned her statement before something clicked in Ymir's head, "She's..going to die." the brunette whispered as everyone froze and the two older adults looked at each other with a questioning gaze.
"Jean; I probably won't get to see that horse face of yours again..fuck that, I'll miss you." Jean slowly placed a hand up to his eyes, clutching his mouth shut as his legs gave out letting him sit on the branch. "Connie; I miss our times of pranking the other soldiers, even the food fights we'll sometimes cause." Said teen looked away, gripping his blade as a sad look replaced his usual happy expression. (Name)'s titan body continued to kill the titans around her, her silky hair covering her neck until a breeze blew by "That's-!?" Hanji paralyzed as she remembered the strange mark from books they have found some expeditions back. "Sasha; you damn fucking potato eating girl who decided to piss off the instructor on the first day we meant..I don't even know what to say, but don't stop eating those potatoes!"
Sasha cast a happy but sad smile as she too sat down, sheathing her swords as (name) looked around the group to pick her next goodbye. "Christa; the sweet lovable angel who didn't even look like she can fight, you better watch the others for me." Said blond tried to wipe her over flowing tears but failed, "Ymir; my goddamn partner in crime...I don't even know but just protect Christa and keep being strange as always." Ymir scowled and looked away but there was a hint of a tear flowing down her freckled cheek. Erwin was getting impatient but kept his composure as he noticed his squad's lack of fighting spirit, but was worried for Hanji's sake since the brunette was shaking. "Armin; continue fighting and succeed in completing your dream of seeing the world, I know you'll do it!"The blond gave a nod and kept a determined face making (name) smile inside her other form, as for her she was still fighting titans that seem to have brought reinforcements since more titans surrounded her.
"Mikasa; you were like the sister I've never had, hell you were scary at times but loving the next. Continue watching your brother, he'll die without you by him." This made the oriental smile from underneath her red scarf, reminding her of their time together while first training. "Eren; you damn hothead that didn't even know when to stop fighting with Jean..you better keep your word of destroying the titans, but remember that you have friends that will help!" This caused Eren to look down as salty tears fell onto the branch, course this made Erwin and Hanji more confused."Bertholdt..Reiner?" The two stiffened at hearing her voice directed towards them, both gasp as (Name) appeared from the nap of the neck and smiled "Take care of yourselves." the girl says ignoring the blood that pour from her forehead.
Before all is lost,
I have only one request..
"Now I only have one thing to tell you guys..." Everyone questioned her when the titan stood in front of them, not believing their eyes as the titan did the one thing they were to do on the first day they became soldiers of the 104th trainee squad. She gave a perfect salute. (Name) mouthed some words shocking the group, before she ran off giving an ear-piercing scream which caused even more titans in the area to run after the tall titan. "(NAME)!!!!!"
My dear friends..please...
Fight for your freedom!
