"Eren, get off your ass and pick up your bass, dude!" Jean yelled to Eren, kicking his leg. Eren raised his bottle of beer angrily, scowling at his fellow band member,

"Don't rush me, man! Let me finish my damn drin-"

"The both of you, cut it out." Mikasa barked, obviously under pressure. She massaged her temples. Round 1 of Battle of The Bands was next week, and they still haven't even figured out the chords to 'Howl'. Armin stared apologetically at the three, sitting behind his drum kit in fear that Eren would throw his bottle and hurt something. Eren huffed and put down the bottle of beer and picked up his bass. Mikasa walked in front of the microphone, adjusting it to her mouth before looking at Armin, who tapped his foot as Jean played his guitar, replacing the sounds of piano.

Mikasa opened her mouth to start singing, 

"If you could only see the beast you've made of me
I held it in but now it seems you've set it running free.." Mikasa tapped her foot along to the beat of Armin's drums,

"Screaming in the dark, I howl when we're apart
Drag my teeth across your chest to taste your beating heart." She continued, staring straight forward at the garage door. Eren and Jean played their bass and guitar behind her voice as Armin played drums and Mikasa sang.

"My fingers claw your skin, try to tear my way in
You are the moon that breaks the night for which I have to howl.." She stared forward at the door when it suddenly opened, and their opponents stood in front of it. Mikasa scoffed at the group in front of them. Tall and lanky Bertholdt Fubar, musclehead Reiner Braun, short and bitter Annie Leonhardt, and freckled Satan Ymir. Eren glared at them, raising his fist.

"What'dya idiots think you're doing around here? This is my house!" He said. Annie popped her gum, rolling her eyes, 

"We heard the sounds of a cat screaming and came to check it out." She said, looking Mikasa right in the eye, in which Mikasa shot back with,

"Really? You must've been listening to yourself then, Annie." Mikasa put her hands on her hips and stepped forward, walking up to Annie and facing her. They were face to face, well, face to air in Mikasa's case. Annie huffed,

"Look, Ackermoron, just because your brother is in charge with setting up the Battle of the Bands competition doesn't mean you have the right to act like you're gonna win. You know damn sure that OUR Bertholdt Fubar is a lot better than your untalented ass." She said, folding her arms and popping her gum in Mikasa's face. Mikasa looked up at Bertholdt with raised eyebrows.

"Okay, Leonwhore, we'll see about that during round one!" Jean said, stepping beside Mikasa. Reiner from behind made a soft "oooo"ing noise with Ymir. Annie shot a glare.

"Fine, we'll see who's better than. Bye, Ackermoron and The Dorks." She said, and then turned around and walked away.
