‘What is it, Levi?....what’s happening to you?....no…what’s bothering you?’
Its been weeks ever since Levi has started acting strangely, his appetite’s changed, he happens to let him self get messed up more than he usually doesn’t, he would work much late-er than he usually does, sometimes he even stays up overnight, it seems as though he doesn’t get any sleep…more like doesn’t want any sleep.
Its been worrying you, every time he sees you he’d show some sort of emotion, sometimes he’d go as far as hugging you, like he hasn’t seen you for months.
You turn your head towards Levi's table, he isn’t there again… he’s been skipping meals, locking himself in his office ‘finishing his paperwork.’
“I’ve had enough of this….” Everyone in your table turned their heads to look at you, obviously they heard you mumble something.
You ignored them, as you rose to your feet and headed for the corporal’s office.
Knock Knock Knock
You turned the knob. Not locked.
You peeked in, seeing no living flesh inside but the room is a bit messier than it usually wasn’t. You thought that he may be in his room so you headed there.
Knock Knock Knock
No answer, but since the door wasn’t exactly closed, it opened a bit
You pushed the door, further opening it so your head could peep in, the first thing that caught your eye was a head full of raven hair on a slouched figure.
“Levi?” he stirred at your voice, but he kept still, looking down and hummed in your acknowledgement.
“Levi…” you finally let yourself in and advanced toward him. “Its been weeks…what’s bothering you?”
You sat beside him with your hand on his shoulder.
“Levi… you’ve been wor…” you trailed off as you notice a tear escaped his hidden eye and vanished on the floor
“…Levi…” you cupped his cheek and brushed away his bangs.
He leaned in your touch.
“…im sorry…” he breathed out, his voice slightly quivering.
You made him face you, but his eyes remained on the floor. This isn’t like him.
“Look at me, Levi…”
He obeyed slowly, but there it is again, that look in his eyes…..
Suddenly you felt arms wrapped around your waist and Levi’s face nuzzling your shoulder. You slid your hands on his chest, pushing him a bit so you can look into his eyes as a silent plead for an answer.
He pulled away and drooped back to that position you recently got him out of.
“I just can’t take it…” he started. “I… keep having drea- nightmares….. one way or another, I’d loose you…to one of them”
Your eyes widened slightly as you draw in a breath.
“… it scares me, what if it does come true… it scares me that I don’t want to sleep anymore….knowing that, I’ll keep seeing you die over and over…” He buried his head in his hands “its too much….loosing you…..I need you…” for once his tone was dripping with emotion.
It hurts you seeing him like this, you wrapped your arms around his torso rubbing his back comfortingly.
“I’m right here, Levi I love you and, I’ll do whatever I can to live for…to live with you…until the end, together…”
He returned the hug “together…” he echoed. He could barely restrain the smile tugging his chapped lips.
“Yup, so don’t let those dreams of your rule over you, okay?”
You looked up to his face as your hand rested on his temple and stared at him lovingly. Then you felt chapped yet soft lips on yours, immediately you kissed him back, letting your hand tousle his hair and he pulled you to his lap. You let him explore your mouth and let his tongue dance with yours. The kiss felt like forever, yet it was too short. Soon enough you two pulled away the damn oxygen just needed to interrupt
“I love you,[Name]” he never sounded so happy
“I love you too, Levi”
