The Gap Between Us
Mikasa, Eren, and Armin look out over the Auguste sea from the airship as they quiz the crew about lands of fire, sand, and ice. Vyrn promises to take them to those places, but first they disembark on a merchant island to unload cargo.
The Grandcypher sails through the skies of Auguste.
Mikasa, Eren, and Armin gaze with amazement at the wide sea below them from the ship's deck.
Eren: Hey! Is that the "sea"?
Armin: Yeah! It's just like I told you it would be, right?
Eren: Yeah... Outside the walls lie the sea and in the skies is... freedom.
The crew smiles happily at the three who are seeing the world beyond their walls.
Vyrn: Haha. Their happiness is contagious!
Lyria: Sure is!
Eren: Hey, Lyria! Do you think we'll be able to see burning water or plains of sand or...
Armin: Lands of ice!
Vyrn: Uh... I think I've seen lands of ice but burning water and plains of sands?
Lyria: Wh-what if the burning water means lava and... the plains of sand mean the desert?
Vyrn: Good point! That's probably what they're talking about!
Eren: So you have... seen all those places?
Vyrn: Haha! We're skyfarers, so of course we have!
Armin: That's amazing!
Eren: Could you take us to those places?
Vyrn: Yup! No problem. Right, (Captain)?
Armin: Hahaha! Eren... I've never been this excited before!
Eren: Yeah! I know exactly what you mean! Hey, Lyria! Can you tell us about other places you've seen?
Mikasa stares contemptuously at the chatting Lyria and Eren.
Vyrn: Ah! H-hey... What's up?
Vyrn: Yeah... I'm not buying that.
Vyrn: Eren wouldn't happen to be... your boyfriend, would he?
Mikasa: No. We're family.
Vyrn: I don't know... Feels like a boyfriend to me.
Mikasa: He's family.
Vyrn: You don't gotta get all defensive about it...
Armin senses the worsening mood and gets between the two.
Armin: Hey! What kind of island are we heading for next? Don't you wanna know, Mikasa?
Mikasa: I guess...
Vyrn: Hm? Right! We didn't tell you! We're going to be stoppin' on a huge island where we can drop off some cargo.
Vyrn: Haha! The island's one for traders, so it's gonna be packed full of people. Keep your eyes peeled, and don't get lost in the crowds!
With that, the crew and the three curious passengers disembark on the island of commerce.
The Gap Between Us: Scene 2
While sightseeing through the peaceful town, the crew bumps into a crying boy who appears to be lost but in actuality is being taught a lesson in tough love by his older sister. Mikasa wonders if she's being too overprotective of Eren when a ruckus erupts from the plaza.
Once the crew finishes unloading their cargo, they explore the island as tourists.
Eren: Hey! Let's go over there too!
Mikasa: Eren, this place is really crowded, so don't go running off on your own.
Eren: I'm fine! Come on! Armin, hurry up!
Armin: Wait! Eren!
Lyria: Hehehe. They're having so much fun.
Vyrn: Well, it is their first time on another island. Can't say I'd be any different.
Vyrn: But... Scarf Girl is a little too overprotective, don't ya think?
Lyria: Hahahaha... Let's try to keep up with them so no one gets separated!
Eren and Armin eat everything with their eyes like children seeing the world for the first time.
Mikasa follows after them.
Eren: Who knew there were this many people living outside the walls...
Armin: Right! The world we've known so far is just a small piece of the entire puzzle.
Armin: Did you notice the weapons? There are so many I've never seen before.
Armin: If we could take these back with us, we might be able to exterminate the Titans.
Eren: Armin... Look at that shop.
The shop Eren points to is full of a variety of foods.
Eren: Look at it all...
Mikasa: So this is... peace.
Armin: It just might be...
The three fully realize the difference between the world they come from and the world they are in now.
Eren: H-hey! Leave the long faces for another time!
Eren: We need to focus on getting useful information and supplies.
Eren: If we can do that and wipe the Titans out, then we'll have peace and be able to soar the skies freely!
Eren: This is no time to be sulking, okay?
Mikasa: You're right. That's a mission we have to complete.
Eren: We'll get rid of the Titans.
Eren: How about we head to the port next?
Mikasa: Eren! Damn...
As Mikasa chases Eren, she notices a young boy crying.
Mikasa: What's wrong?
Boy: Sob... Sob... I lost my sister...
Mikasa: Did you now...
Boy: Sob... Sob...
Mikasa: Stop crying! That won't solve anything!
Vyrn: You okay, little guy? You want us to find your sis?
Boy: A lizard...
Vyrn: What! I ain't no lizard!
Vyrn: I... I didn't mean to yell. My bad...
Lyria: Here, here... You don't have to cry anymore. Let's look for your sister together, okay?
Boy: T-thank you...
Mikasa: (Right... This town isn't in a state of war. There is no need to stand and face the world alone...)
Mikasa: (I wonder what would have happened to Eren had he been born here instead...)
Eren: Mikasa, you all right?
Mikasa: Yeah... I'm fine.
Mikasa: His sister might be looking for him too. Let's split up to find her.
Lyria: Good idea!
The crew take the young boy with them and begin searching for his sister. Just then, she comes bounding from an alley.
Girl: I'm sorry he bothered you all...
Mikasa: Wait... You're his sister?
Girl: Sigh... Yes. I was trying to make him stronger by hiding from him.
Girl: But as soon as he lost sight of me, he just cried...
Girl: How is he ever going to become tougher if all he does is cry?
Eren crouches down and pats the young boy on the head.
Eren: Is that true? Did you just start crying? You're making your sister sad. You know that, right?
Boy: Sob... Sob... I don't want that. I want her to always smile.
Eren: Right? So stop crying. For your sister's sake, you need to grow big and strong. Got it?
Boy: Okay, I won't cry anymore!
Eren: That's the spirit!
As Mikasa watches the young siblings leave, she reflects on the way she worries and feels ashamed.
Mikasa: (Perhaps I was overprotective. Even without me, Eren is a great soldier...)
Armin: Something wrong?
Mikasa: I was just thinking how... peaceful it is here.
Armin: We'll have this one day too...
Mikasa: We will.
???: Don't give me that! You're the ones who started dealing in restricted goods to begin with!
Vyrn: What's going on?
Shouts coming from the town's central plaza attract the attention of many locals.
Lyria: (Captain), let's go see what the fuss is about!
Merchant 2: Stop with the lies! You're scaring away business! Leave already!
Merchant 1: What! You've got some nerve. Let's settle this here and now.
Merchant 2: Damn wannabe! If you think you can take me, just go ahead and try it! I'll show you what a true merchant is!
Merchant 2: Wahahaha! This is war!
Merchant 1: I thought you'd say that. All right, come on out, boys. Tear his place to the ground.
Bodyguard 1: Hahaha! The boss gave the word. Do it!
Bodyguard 2: Hah!
The two merchants show complete disregard for anything around them and begin throwing their surroundings into chaos.
Eren: What the hell! You have the privilege of being born in such a peaceful world, and you choose to fight amongst yourselves!
Lyria: What he said! Can't we all just get along?
Mikasa: I'll stop them.
Vyrn: All right! Let's get in there, (Captain)!
The Gap Between Us: Scene 3
The crew breaks up the quarreling merchants, but Mikasa questions why people continue to fight in a world of peace. (Captain) answers simply that they'll step in whenever it happens. Mikasa seems satisfied with this answer and hopes to bring peace quickly to her homeland as she travels the skies with the crew.
The crew stops the merchant brawl.
Merchant 1: Damn it...
Merchant 2: Tch... Just... leave me with my life...
Eren: What the hell? We just stopped you. No one said anything about taking your life from you.
Armin: If this is just about merchandise, couldn't you have discussed the problem instead of resorting to violence?
Mikasa: Be thankful for your peace.
Merchant 1: Huh? Peace?
The three turn their backs to the merchants and leave.
The crew follows after them.
The three leave the city. They stare into the wide skies and deeply exhale.
Vyrn: What's up? You guys just ran outta there.
Eren: Hey! Don't get so worked up!
Mikasa: Why do humans fight in times of war and... in times of peace?
Lyria: I... I... Uh... Umm...
Vyrn: Don't worry your little head. It'll fall off at that rate.
Choose: If they fight, we stop them.
(Captain)'s nonchalant remark sends everyone into gales of laughter.
Eren: Hahaha! Is it that simple?
Armin: Yeah, that's the type of answer I'd expect from (Captain).
Mikasa: (If they fight... we stop them.)
Mikasa: I can do that.
Vyrn: Haha. So can we, right, Lyria?
Eren: Haha! Just speaking with you makes me feel silly for worrying so much, (Captain).
Eren: For now, let's just focus on getting as much valuable information as we can for Commander Erwin.
To bring peace to their own country, the three will continue to explore the vast skies with great big smiles on their faces.
At least that's what Mikasa hopes for.
