I’m pretty sure this wasn’t what you had in mind when you sent in this prompt but somehow this happened, I hope you like it :3
“Penny for your thoughts?”
Eren was pulled out of his reverie when Levi suddenly spoke up from behind him. It was a lazy Sunday afternoon and they had decided they’d rather spend inside lazying around since tomorrow was a big day for Eren. They’d been watching movies for a few hours now, basking in each other’s presence, when Levi noticed that Eren kept zoning out.
“It’s nothing.” Eren tried to quickly dismiss, looking back at Levi and feeling his chest fill with warmth at the softness present in Levi’s eyes.
“Are you worried about tomorrow?” A little crease appeared in between Levi’s eyebrows and Eren knew that Levi was worrying about the next day probably more than he was.
“Maybe a little, but that wasn’t really what I was think about–” Eren trailed off and sat up to properly face Levi, he knew the conversation was far from over.
Levi sat up as well. “C'mon, what’s going on in that pretty head of yours?”
Eren knew he was trying to lighten up the mood or maybe just lift a bit of Eren’s reluctance to share with him what’s wrong.
“Well–” Eren kept trying to get the words out but they were lodged in his throat. “I– uh, well I was thinking about how lucky I am to have you in my life”
His voice was barely audible and he’d taken to staring at his hands instead of Levi as if afraid what the other’s reaction might be. Tentatively Levi reached his hands to cover Eren’s and give them a light squeeze to grab his attention, waiting patiently until Eren looked back up before replying.
“Eren.” he said slowly, eyes full of emotion. “I’m the lucky one here, you understand me? Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined someone as perfect and beautiful as you to fall in love with me.”
“No, don’t you dare. We’re not having this conversation again.” Levi quickly cut him off know quite well what his boyfriend was about to say. “You’re my boyfriend and I know this is starting to sound like a broken record but your parts don’t define you.”
Eren’s eyes started to tear up and he looked like he was trying really hard to hold it all in so Levi threw his arms around the boy, pulling him strongly against his chest and leaning back before whispering. “What brought this on? You were so excited for tomorrow this morning.”
“I still am.” Eren said slowly, breathing heavily against Levi. “The top surgery has been my dream for ages now and it’s finally coming true.” Eren stopped and Levi nudged him weakily urging him to continue. “I’m just scared you’ll realize I’m more trouble than I’m worth and stop loving me.”
Eren started sobbing and Levi had to wonder how long had the boy been keeping all this inside. He continued to hold him close, whispering words of reassurance and comfort and waiting for Eren to calm down before he could talk.
“I was gonna wait after your surgery to do this but I guess now is as good a time as any” Levi said, slowly getting out from behind Eren and kneeling on the floor in front of him while taking out the box that he’s been keeping with him everywhere.
“Eren Jaeger, from the day I met you I knew you were going to be someone special to me. Your passion for life with that determination and stubbornness that makes me want to kill you most of the time are also the reason I fell in love. The world is big as fuck and somehow you managed to become mine, it’s obvious I didn’t prepare a speech or anything but Eren, will you marry me?” He then opened the box holding the simple platinum band and looking back at Eren who was hiding his face behind his hands and sobbing.
“Yes” Eren managed to get out in between his sobs. “Yes and a hundred times yes” Eren said before joining Levi on the floor, pulling him into a deep wet kiss full of passion before parting to look in Levi’s eyes with happy teary ones and pulling him in a hug.
“What are you thanking me for you idiot?” Levi was baffled with his boyfriend, not scratch that, fiancee.
“Thank you for loving me.” Eren whispered, bringing his palm to cup Levi’s cheek and leaning in again to capture his lips in a slow loving kiss that made Levi’s heart ache fromits softness.
He could definitely get used to this he thought as he continues to kiss Eren, happy that for now his boyfriend is happy and his dreams are slowly coming true.
