Sorry for the time this took...and you only get this very small chapter. :S Truth is, while I thought it'd be a piece of cake to write the ending, I found that I had lost all inspiration.
I'm sure there are writers among you...and you all know what plot bunnies do to us, right? RIGHT? Soon as a new idea pops up, you forget all about your old works...
So. All you get it this. I'm sorry, but that's that. Hope you still enjoy it!
Hibarilova18: Yesh. There is not point to tough love is there is not gentleness for beautiful, beautiful contrast :D Thank you for the continued support, dawwling!
Tennu : Thank you for understanding...I value quality stuff, so that's what I wanna deliver. My quality already dropped considerably in this chapter, so it would only be worse from here on out so better end things now. Thank you for your support, dear~!
Daktasinsanity : I don't think I will...If I do it might turn out a lot like this one and I don't wanna become bland to you people! -cowers- Plus, I've already got my next fanfic clearly in sight...Aw well, maybe one day! Thank you for alllll the reviews, you suberb person, you! 3
AliceDreamer: I didn't make a great ending but...I mean...Well...-mumbles- AISHITERU
layer14 : I hope this doesn't disappoint you too much . Thank you for your continued support!
Lana The Bloodedge: O: god forbid I should own Shingeki no Kyojin...Sure, the yaoi would be good, but I'd butcher the rest XD Though, if I can say one thing for myself, I wouldn't kill off half the cast like Isiyama T-T Thanks a lot!
AntiqueDemon : You're absolutely right; it was harsh and OOC. I kinda wrote what I like to see in yaoi fics, so the result was inclined to fit my tastes, and that is awful, and I apologize. All the more reason to quit while I'm ahead XD Thank you for the review : D
KingForYesterday : It is the summit of kawaii x3

amyartkitten : That's how he is...in my head XD Thank you for the many reviews! I hope this chapter doesn't disappoint you!
The first thing Eren felt the next morning was the gentle warmth of the sun beams filtering through the curtains. They reached the foot of the bed, teasing his feet with their heat. Eren's eyes began to flutter open, his mind gradually freeing itself of slumber. That's when he felt the presence near him, and awoke completely.
His first instinct upon seeing the corporal sleeping next to him was to panick. After a minute, however, a dumb smile spread across his face. Waking up next to his beloved Levi was something he could easily get used to. Especially given the man's sleeping face...It was surprisingly peaceful, eyebrows very slightly furrowed as show that Levi's daily worries did not leave him even at night. Eren reached out and, carefully, stroked a strand of his hair. He retracted his hand almost instantly; he feared how the corporal would react if Eren woke him up.
The third thing he felt – the second being the mix of fear and endearment when noticing the corporal – was pain. Pain in a very obvious region, given what they had spent the night doing. Eren stifled a whine, cringing. Walking would be a bitch today. He just hoped there wouldn't be much to do, or that Levi would at least be understanding and take it easy on him...yeah that wasn't happening any time soon.
Eren closed his eyes and tried to go back to sleep. If Levi wasn't going to rise, he wouldn't either. Soon, he opened them, unable to resist staring at his lover. This had to be the best moment of his life...Getting to be so close to him, like they were a real couple...It made him so giddy, he almost felt embarrassed at himself. He was such a wife. What? What am I even thinking?! He buried his head in the pillow, fed up with his own antics.
''Oi...how about you stop moving so much?''
Eren flinched, yet he did not dare look at the one who had just spoken. Understand he had no other choice, he slowly turned his head towards him. Levi looked like he was still half-asleep, and keeping his eyes open took effort. There was a small crease in his forehead proving it. Nonetheless, he appeared ruggedly handsome to Eren as always. He lost himself in contemplating him again, while Levi grew increasingly impatient.
''What are you staring at, damn brat?''
''N-nothing! Sorry I woke you up, heichou...''
Levi secured an arm around Eren's waist, and pulled him close as he returned to sleep. Eren blinked, body stiff. Surely, he had been eaten by a titan and was now in heaven. How else could he explain this situation? The corporal was spooning him! All he knew was that he could feel the butterflies having a party in his stomach, and he was probably blushing more than ever. He shifted slightly, allowing them both better comfort, then he closed his eyes. Might as well enjoy this rare moment, right?
''Eren'', Levi said suddenly.
''Do you...resent me?''
''For what?''Eren asled, puzzled.
''Last night. I was...pretty hard on you.''
Eren looked down, as images surfaced in his mind. He hadn't dwelt much on the night before, engrossed as he was in watching Levi. Honestly, he could have forgotten all about the abuse had Levi not brought it up. All he remembered, personally, was what came after. Levi hadn't exactly treated him like glass, but Eren had felt it. He had felt the special care Levi had given him, perhaps out of guilt, perhaps out of love...no, definitely not love.
''It's ok...I wasn't really thinking about that anymore...And I don't hate you, heichou. Not at all. I—Well...''
Eren's initial courage died out. Fortunately, Levi followed up quickly with:
Eren opened his mouth, then closed it. So Levi had acknowledged his feelings...One question now drew him mad: how did Levi feel about him? He silently antagonized himself over it, of course not daring to ask the question aloud. Well...for now he could just content himself with this, right? He was lying in Levi's arms, in his bed, the both of them alone after a night of passion...It was, to say the least, a small blessing to him.
Still, he knew the question would torment him forever. As long as he didn't hear it, he would always doubt. No matter how many times their bodies joined, or their lips met.
Levi stirred a little, holding Eren close.
''You're wondering about something unnecessary, aren't you?''
''W-what? Did I do something wrong?''
''You remember what I said last night, right?''
Levi clicked his tongue.
''Well, too bad then.''
''Ehhh?! What is it? What do you mean, heichou?''
''I won't indulge you, stupid brat. Figure it out by yourself.''
As Eren whined like the brat that he was, Levi buried his face in the nape of Eren's neck, a small smirk hanging on his lips. I wonder how long will it be 'til the brat figures out I love him too.
Then the next day, the 57th expedition beyond the walls was launched.
XD I just ruined the mood.
This was fun while it lasted. Thank you a million times to my reviewers, you guys have made this worthwhile :' D Thank you also to the faves and follows!
I hope you enjoyed this til the end...if not, I'm very sorry!
