A/N: I was going to write this earlier, but the power wnet it is! It is the end. I'm probably going to cry when I finish this but hey, at least I have a vague idea for another one.
Daughter of Zeus007 - Amazing. Truly wonderful. I started giggling.
Guest (1) - Thank you for reading and reviewing! I'm so glad you like it, and I hope you enjoy this one!
iHillery - I was actually considering making Armin end up with Legout but that's not what happened so...
Three years have passed.
Eren was falling asleep. Levi was the big spoon tonight, after much pouting and slapping. He was murmuring against Eren's ear, comforting words in a language Eren didn't understand. Eren knew it was French,, though.
"Je t'adore, Je t'adore..." he whispered, over and over again. Eren lazily glanced at the door. It was closed. Why did Levi keep telling him to shut the door? Maybe he was saying something else.
Levi had been speaking French more often lately. Eren didn't even know he spoke French at all until two years ago. Armin and Jean were currently at the beach, and were about to head home, according to Armin. Legout and Armin stayed close friends, and Legout even got himself a smoking hot boyfriend. Ymir and Christa had gotten a house together. Eren still worked at the cafe and was now going to college as an art major. Levi became a full-time French teacher.
"Eren." Levi whispered, just as the brunette was falling asleep.
"Mm?" asked Eren, rolling over so his face was pressed against Levi's chest.
"I want you to meet my Mom." said Levi.
"Oh, that's right. I still haven't met her. She lives in France, right?" asked Eren, his voice muffled by Levi's shirt. It smelled like Levi, like cleaning products.
"Yeah." Levi's Mom had moved back to France after Levi got into college. "I have plane tickets."
"When did you get those?" asked Eren. He was about to fall asleep.
"A few days ago." said Levi, planting a kiss on top of Eren's head. "Go to sleep. We leave in three days."
Eren was happy to comply.
The next three days consisted of cleaning the entire apartment and packing a week's worth of clothes. They washed the rest of the laundry so they would have something clean to wear when they got back. When they left, the place was absolutely spotless.
"Let's hope that damned glasses doesn't try to come over." Levi growled. Zoe and Irwin had gotten married two years ago and were now living happily. Zoe refused to have children.
On the flight over, Eren fell asleep twice. Levi gagged at the plane food, saying that it was unhealthy, even though Eren thought it was fine. Levi spent the time staring out the window and contemplating life while Eren snored.
At his mom's house, Levi spent the first few minutes greeting her while Eren gazed at the scenery awkwardly. Levi's mom smiled at Eren.
"And this is him?" she asked. "The one you've been telling me so much about on... Skype?" Eren could see her search for the words in her mind. She was clearly used to speaking French.
"Aw, you talk about me?" teased Eren. A light blush dusted Levi's face and he looked away.
"Come inside, mon amor." said Levi's mother, smiling. Inside, the house was as clean as Levi's apartment. It had dark brown furniture and various black couches. She also had a TV and WiFi.
"So, uh..." Eren said awkwardly, "What's your name? Or do you just want me to call you Mrs. Levi?"
She laughed. "Call me Claire." (I made that up because I don't know Levi's mom's name.)
"What a pretty name." said Eren, smiling.
"Why don't you and Rivialle go see the scenery? I'll make dinner. How does chicken alfredo sound?" asked Claire, brushing away a stray hair.
"Sounds good." said Levi.
Aren't we supposed to eat French food in France? thought Eren as they exited the house.
"I have somewhere I want to go." said Levi.
"I'll go too." said Eren.
"No, you go see the Eiffel Tower or the Arc de Triumph or something. I've seen them one too many times." said Levi, and he walked away briskly. He sounded like he was hiding something.
Eren felt a bit hurt, but went to see the landmarks anyway. They weren't much fun without Levi there. He took pictures and uploaded them to various social websites before heading back to Claire's house.
The chicken alfredo was delicious, even though it wasn't French food. Levi, who got back a few minutes after Eren, didn't talk much. Claire did most of the talking, switching from English to French throughout the entire conversation.
As the days passed, Eren noticed Levi getting more and more nervous. What was going on? Eren was yearning for an answer, but he didn't want to make Levi upset by asking.
Finally, on the last day of their visit, Levi spoke up.
"Maman, there's something I want to tell you." he said. Both Eren and Claire looked up. "We'll be leaving tomorrow-"
"I know that, cheri." said Claire in a patronizing tone.
"-And you're coming with us." he finished.
"Rivialle, I'm not moving to America." said Claire slowly.
"Not to move there." said Levi, glancing at Eren. "For an event. Maman, I've always wondered what love felt like. If love was even worth feeling. But, when I met Eren, I knew. And I knew love was worth the struggle it comes with. He's- Il est parfait." Levi paused for a moment.
I'm a parfait? thought Eren. The poor boy didn't speak French, otherwise he would know that Levi just called him perfect.
"And I love him. I want to stay with him for the rest of my life." Eren's face was heating up, and fast. Levi turned to him and pulled out a ring. Eren's hands flew to his face and he let out a sound of surprise.
"Eren, will you marry me?" asked Levi, his face flushed.
"Nah." said Eren.
"Yes." whispered Eren, near tears. Someone like Levi - Levi! - wanted to marry Eren? It seemed too good to be true. But Levi's fingers were cold on Eren's hand as he slipped the ring on and kissed Eren's hand. Claire giggled and clapped her hands.
Back at home, it was chaotic. People wishing them happy lives together, wedding plans, and-
"No." said Eren.
"Come on, please?" begged Zoe. Armin was also in the room.
"Never." Eren backed away until his back hit the wall. Shit!
"I think it would look good on you." said Armin. Eren shot him daggers and Armin shrugged, trying not to laugh. This wedding was going to be... interesting.
And finally, five months later, after much planning and congratulations, the wedding was held.
Levi stood at the end of the isle with the priest, looking nervous as hell. Well, to someone who knew Levi (like Irwin or Zoe) he looked nervous. To anyone else he was calm. The doors opened, and in walked Eren. Levi's mouth nearly dropped open. Eren was wearing a wedding dress, and damn did he look good in it. His gaping jaw was quickly replaced with a genuine smile, one that made Eren blush harder.
"Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to celebrate the bond between Eren and Levi. Those who are gathered here are the most important people in their lives." the priest skipped the part when the father gives away the female, since Eren's father didn't like this one bit and Levi's dad was dead. "You will all be bearing witness to the coming together of these two individuals. Eren and Levi, the vows you are about to make are a way to share your love and commitment to each other. Eren, you go first."
"I, Eren, take you, Levi, to be my lawfully wedded husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part." said Eren, his voice shaking as he read from a note card Mikasa was holding.
"Levi," said the priest, gesturing to Levi.
"I, Levi, take you, Eren, to be my lawfully wedded husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part." said Levi, his voice sounding strong. Inside he was brimming with happiness.
"You have declared your consent before the Church. May the Lord in his goodness strengthen your consent and fill you both with his blessings. What God has joined, men must not divide. Amen." said the priest.
After the ceremony, without anything happening after, Levi carried Eren bridal-style to his car, which Zoe had taped balloons all over.
"I'm going to murder that damned glasses." said Levi. Eren laughed.
"At least she didn't try to spray-paint it." he said, feeling a little giddy.
"You look so damn good." whispered Levi, leaning closer to Eren. Eren laughed, his face reddening, and pushed Levi away gently.
"Shouldn't you wait until we get home?" asked Eren. "We have a crowd of girls watching us."
Sure enough, almost all of the girls that were invited were watching from the car window, squealing. Ymir was covering Christa's eyes and Christa was desperately trying to see.
"I guess." Levi muttered as he started the car. But Eren looked wonderful and he just wanted to-
Fuck it. He was going to drive fast.
And so Eren and Levi rode off to their home, ready to begin their new life together. It may sound a bit cliche, but I think they lived happily ever after.
A/N: I skipped a lot in the marriage ceremony, but I hope I got the basics. You have no idea how much research I did for this chapter!
I sure will miss writing this. It was so much fun!
