Hey guys~! Nati here to kick off our 4 week long endeavor! Here’s the idea behind today’s piece:
It’s the night before an important mission, and finding sleep to elude him, Eren heads outside to collect his thoughts. Mikasa joins him, and they share a sweet moment.
I absolutely loved collaborating with Jazzy (@jaegsae) on this, and on behalf of both of us – thank you all so much for showing your interest in this little project, and we sincerely hope you enjoy it!
“Hey,” she says simply.
He turns around, tears brimming in his eyes.
The raven gasps slightly, and the brunet, snapping to his senses, uses his hand to quickly brush them away.
She takes a seat next to him, wrapping her thin blanket around herself tighter, shivering in the chilly breeze.
“Can’t sleep?” Eren asks quietly, staring forward.
Mikasa nods, exhaling into the air and making a small foggy cloud.
“You ready for tomorrow?” she asks, barely above a whisper.
This time, he turns around and faces her, sniffling slightly. “…no way in hell…”
“No way in hell,” she echoes softly.
Another breeze rustles through, causing the pair to instinctively huddle closer for warmth.
He wishes Eren would say something instead of leaving him
alone in this smothering silence. It seems sort of unfair, but Levi thinks that
he did unintentionally drag the man out into the freezing rain. Bottom lip
worried between his teeth, palms sweaty – makes him remember why he fucking
hates feeling vulnerable.
There’s a blanket wrapped around his shoulders, a warm
cup of cocoa in his hands. Somehow, he still feels cold. Probably has something
to do with the sinking feeling in the middle of his gut as he watches Eren lean
against the kitchen island. The man’s palms are flat on the marble, head
hanging between his shoulders. Looking a lot like it was him who fucked up and not Levi.
