Arming returned the hug, tightly, and nodded slightly against Eren’s shoulder. It wasn’t the answer he had wanted to hear, but he knew better than to press the subject. Besides, he was just glad Eren was finally here.
"…I really missed you," He finally admitted quietly.
His arms tightened around his friend and he laughed slightly “I missed you too, I hope nothing has changed to much while I was gone, you’ll have to fill me in.”
He shook his indicating nothing had changed and just settled for refusing to let go of Eren for the time being.
"Alfie’s gotten big," He said after a moment.
