Attack on Titan: The Return

By Daniel Aldana

Fantasy / Action

Prolouge

Before the year 840, Over one hundred years prior to the beginning of The story, giant humanoid creatures called Titans suddenly appeared and nearly wiped out humanity, devouring them without remorse or reason. What remains of humanity now resides within a country surrounded by three enormous concentric walls: the outermost is Wall Maria. the middle wall is Wall Rose, and the innermost is Wall Sheena. Inside these walls, humanity has lived in peace for one hundred years; many people growing up without ever having seen a Titan.The Titans are giant humanoids about 3-15 meters tall that are usually masculine in body shape but without reproductive organs. They instinctively attack and eat humans on sight, but do not use them as food. Their skin is tough and difficult to penetrate, and they regenerate quickly from injuries, except for a weak spot at the nape of their neck.Combating the Titans is the military's job, which is divided into three branches. Foremost in the story is the Survey Corps, also called the Scouts, which goes out into Titan territory in order to try and reclaim the land. The Scouts are heavily derided in society because of their high casualty rate and little sense of progress. Another branch is the Garrison which guards the walls and the civilian populace. The third branch is the Military Police Brigade (MP), who guard the royal family and citizens and live a relatively relaxed life. The soldiers use a tethering/grappling system called the 3D Maneuver Gear(3DMG) to climb onto buildings to attack Titans.That was some time ago before we took back the rest of the world.

They say, you can never be strong enough if you don't abandon your humanity. Putting others aside for your own needs. Why do fight, we know. But what are they fighting for?. Why do they want to destroy us...we will never know.

Strange noise sound about. There was always noise here. Beating horns and wind bouncing off buildings making their way into the quietest of back alleys. There was a rusty dumpster, it sat in the back and a cat was there too. It had black and orange shapes on it's fur, combined with the fur that mostly covered its body. It was placing it's paw down trying to keep the fish bone in place, trying to get the last bit of flavor in its spine.

The cat fades away and gets smaller from our sight as if looking through the wrong side of binoculars. Slowly moving away, the attention turns its way into the other side of the alley. Into the street yellow cabs and other colored cars stretched a few blocks. People wandering the street going on with their day, towering above them the tall big buildings. Grey and overshadowing. The suns rays was blocked by the empire state building, making a shadow intersecting the street.

Daylight. It wasn't even the afternoon.

There was an abstract building with weird architecture. Its glass front doors opened and closed every so often. There was a symbol on the marble wall, it had a picture of a unicorn. It was grey though to match the wall.

The Military Police. Inside the men and women worked in and out of their offices to serve justice for the people, not a king. Yet most still believe the Military Police are still corrupt selfish bastards. Floor after floor after floor. Most of their headquarters mostly consisted of cubicles, though there was also a shooting range near the main floor. But it wasn't all hours staring at a screen, paperwork, and faxes. There was much work to do on streets of New York. It was a weird environment being in their shoes. They step out of their luxury futuristic shelter and head into the deepest bowels of city to enforce justice. Some would come back from a bloody shootout and return to their place of work, and look like a color out of place. A rose in an only white room. Changing can wait, every crime must be documented and recorded. Reporting information as soon as possible was strictly enforce.

Higher up, almost reaching the top the top floor were the chief's of police or "the big guys". They occupied that area. Each one in charge of the several districts of the Big Apple. A man was in his office was doing his normal business when his doors suddenly opened. He lifted his head off the desk and wiped his nose.

"Chief-", it was a woman. She weared formal attire, grey pants and coat with a pink collar shirt. She had her hair back in a bun and weared glasses. She was his secretary. The man assumed a striaght posture. He looked at her with a nervous smile.

"What, what do you want Sonia", his tone sounded irrated. "Haven't you heard about knocking!"His tone didn't stir her a bit, she went on.

"You have a meeting today", the man rolled his eyes and groaned. "And people have been complaing a lot lately, the H gang have been covering their white graffiti on almost every brick wall."

She was about to leave him be but she stopped at the doorway and said, "You can start by getting rid of some off your lip". She left.

He looked down and wiped the rest of the cocain off his lip. 'How dare she', he thought. Before resuming his... work, he recieved a phone call. He picked it up right away."Hello?"

"Hey George has it going"

"Toooonnny, whats up"

Miles away from New York, not too far in Philedelphea was the only Titan research facility there was. They kept one live 4 meter titan, before they were wiped out. The Gov. wanted to keep one to keep it in check and learn even more of them. It was the most secured place on earth, more secured than the white house.

"I just wanted call and check on ya and the family"

"We good tony, we good. Say you gonna visit during the holidays"

"Yeah, Im sure my insane Titan loving boss will let me off by then""Alright, is that all?"

"Well you could tell me how's Sonia's doing-ahhhhh"

"ahhhhh"

"Alright, see you in 3 months''

"You's be careful in there tony"

"I will, bye"

"Bye"

Click-, Geroge hanged up the phone and went to do scribble down actual work when he remembered. He forgot to ask Tony what he wanted for christmas, it wasn't too early to ask your cousin what he wanted right?. He picked up the phone again, redialed the number and waited. It went to voicemail. He tried again, voicemail. George got agitated and called one last time. The rings felt like an eternity, then it was answered.

"Hey tony i forgot ask you something, what you want for christmas"

It was silent. He can hear the other side of the phone's atmosphere but it was silent, all he could hear are loud thumping noises. on the other side of that phone line, Tony's office been destroyed, cieling lights were uneasyly hanging like scrape metal. Papers on the floor, scattered. Geroge couldn't hear it but in that room, all that can be heard are distant screams passing. Like there was a hallway in front of Tony's office. And within the screaming you can hear loud thumps, like giant footsteps. Not ones footsteps but multiple.

"Hello?...Hello?."

They should have different names a...
