“Now it is time to decide which corps should deal with Eren Yeager, both of you, please state your proposals, the military police regiment will go first.”
Darius Zackly sat in the middle of the two Corps, he was not angry but looked powerful.
“Ahem.” Nile Dok coughed and took a step forward.
“Commander-in-chief…, judge, the thing is that Eren Yeager can become a titan, which is very serious. If it had happened in the past, we would study him first.
Considering the current situation, If Eren Yeager is handed over to us, the military police regiment will immediately execute Eren Yeager to get rid of this unstable factor. That’s all.”
After declaring the intentions, Nile Dok took a step back. This was actually his personal opinion. The military police brigade did what he said. Except for the orders from the royal family or the commander-in-chief, Nile Dok would ignore everything else.
“The next one is Survey Corps.”
Darius Zackly gestured to Erwin Smith to speak.
“Judge, I suggest handing Eren Yeager over to us. If humans can become titans, there will be a new threat different from the Titans.
Let’s just think, the following description is only my personal guess…”
Erwin Smith, who had always been cautious, took a deep breath, it seemed that it was a very serious guess.
“First of all, we have determined that Eren Yeager has become a titan before, so we can’t rule out the uniqueness of this ability. Could Eren Yeager be the sole person capable of this?”
Erwin Smith looked at Su Xiao, who nodded.
“There is another possibility, what if other humans in the walls can become titans, or are right now hiding next to us, ready to cause devastating damage to humanity.”
After Erwin Smith expressed his conjecture, everyone else took a deep breath.
Eren Yeager was in front of him, that a titan could become a human had basically been confirmed, it was witnessed by the members of the Corps.
“So, in order to investigate whether there are other people in the wall that can become titans, the Survey Corps will detain Eren Yeager first, with the intention of controlling him with the Survey Corps.
Of course, this depends on the performance of Eren Yeager after he wakes up, whether he can control himself as a titan. If he has consciousness and is loyal to humanity, we may be able to consider using him to help humanity fight the titans.
The ability to become a titan is either randomly assigned, or it may even be an accident. We just don’t know about the titans, that’s all.”
Erwin Smith’s remarks were very persuasive. First, it showed that if human beings could become a threat to titans.
At this point, Erwin inferred it accurately, there were indeed ‘smart titans’ who sneaked into the wall.
Erwin Smith meant to hold Eren first, and then decide whether Eren was loyal to humanity or wanted to destroy it.
If he was loyal to humans, they can use him to repel the Titans, if not, they’d cut him open and study him.
This was similar to Su Xiao’s plan. The city wall was almost broken, and danger was near. The Survey Corps would try to block the gap with whatever means necessary.
At least to Su Xiao’s understanding, the Survey Corps was wholeheartedly thinking about humanity.
Darius Zackly pretended to ponder.
In fact, after he understood the cause of the matter, he had decided which Corps he should assign Eren to go to. The temporary court was only a front, as authoritarian parenting would cause dissatisfaction among a certain corps.
“I have decided to…”
Darius Zackly had not yet finished his words as he noticed that Eren was waking up, and he suddenly stopped speaking.
Eren looked up in confusion and glanced around, his mind blank.
After noticing the situation, Eren immediately wanted to get up, but he suddenly felt a force on his back, pressing him firmly to the ground.
“What is going on here, why am I here, let me go!”
Su Xiao stepped on Eren’s back with one leg. If Eren dared to get up, he would be hit severely, and Su Xiao’s previous plan would fail.
“If you don’t want to die, you have to stay here and be honest.”
Not caring about Su Xiao’s words, Eren still struggled to get free, until Su Xiao put pressure in his foot, and Eren screamed in horror.
Just imagine what you would feel when you just got up and suddenly someone stepped on your back and hit you.
Eren stopped struggling, he still didn’t know what happened.
“Eren Yeager, do you remember what you did after becoming a titan, can you control the titan in battle?”
Darius Zackly stared at Eren, Eren’s next words would affect his judgment.
“What? I became a titan? This isn’t funny at all, who is this old man?”
Eren obviously had never seen the commander-in-chief ‘Darius Zackly’, and as the world inside of the wall only had backward technology, the highest ranked person Eren had seen was the head of the Survey Corps, there was no chance for him to be in contact with a person like ‘Darius Zackly’.
He had indeed seen a portrait of the person before, but the portrait was just too abstract.
“The old man?”
Su Xiao was speechless, Eren, this child, was a bit idiot.
“This is the commander-in-chief, Darius Zackly. He is in charge of all the corps. You should pay attention to what you say. Otherwise, I will shoot you on the spot.”
Nile Dok stared at Eren with a bad look.
“The commander-in-chief of all the Corps?”
“Eren Yeager, answer my previous question.”
“I don’t know what you are talking about, I am a human, how can I become a titan, this must be a joke.”
Eren was somewhat uncooperative, a conversation like this was meaningless.
“Give me a minute.”
Su Xiao looked at Darius Zackly, and Darius Zackly sighed.
“Don’t be too rude, I have tried you already.”
Su Xiao nodded, lifted his feet and let go of Eren who was on the ground, then grabbed his shoulder and picked him up.
“First you can only listen, you have no right to speak.”
Eren wanted to talk right away, but Su Xiao lifted his knee and hit Eren’s lower abdomen. Eren bent over and retched out stomach acid.
“Hey! What are you doing? He may become a titan, don’t stimulate him like this.”
Nile Dok screamed and quickly receded.
“Oh? Previously, this guy just turned into a ‘Kiko-shu’ fifteen meters tall, even with his fighting instincts, I alone can subdue him in minute or two.
Continuing our previous conversation, you may only listen, but not speak.”
Eren nodded immediately, he was not stupid, he would be hit when he spoke.
“This is the correct attitude. The fact that you can become a titan has been confirmed. It is what I saw with my own eyes. Considering that you do not believe me, there are other witnesses.
Su Xiao turned to look at Armin and Mikasa.
“Say what you saw, if you still want him to live.”
Mikasa’s teeth were gnashed tightly, she looked down. Armin found that the situation was not right and said quickly:
“Eren, you probably turned into a titan before, we rescued you from the titan’s neck, and, you remember how you were swallow by the titan…”
“That’s enough, you just need to confirm that he became a titan.”
Su Xiao interrupted Armin’s words and looked at Eren.
“You can become a titan. I will give you five seconds to accept this.”
Eren nodded dumbly, but immediately shook his head. At this time, Eren had only one thought in his mind. The man with a long sword in front of him was terrible.
“Five seconds are over. You must accept the fact that you can become a titan.”
It would take a long time for Eren to accept that he could become a titan, so Su Xiao used the simplest and most rude method.
First, hit him, force him to accept the fact, and finally, have a friend confirm it.
Eren’s eyes went a little dull, the fact that he could become a titan had a serious impact on his young mind.
“You can continue the interrogation.”
Su Xiao put Eren on the ground and continued push him down. He was also helpless. If he doesn’t do this, the guys of the Military police regiment won’t put down their guns. Once the situation is tense, it would stimulate other people’s nerves. If they accidentally kill an official, his plan will be postponed.
