@levihanweek Day 3: Sense - - - A continuation of my Day 2 piece. The shenanigans with Pastor Nick continue. And the angst too.
Read Day 2 here.
Hanji took a long, slow breath and conceded, “You’re right. I know you’re right. But I keep going over it in my head. Analyzing every moment, considering if there’s something I could have done differently.” She laughed quietly, bitterly, “not that it matters now anyway.”
“You’re still talking like a fucking idiot.”
Nearby, the pastor shook his head, muttering under his breath, “That’s no way to talk to your soon to be wife.”
That snapped her out of her thoughts. Hanji’s head jerked up, “-your soon to be what?”
“It’s not – just – fuck,” grabbing her ponytail, he forcefully turned her away from the pastor, “Ignore him.”
The pastor hummed, “You should tell her about my offer. Life is short.”
Levi’s ears flushed red. He hissed, glaring murderously over his shoulder, “Shut the fuck up.”
Hanji looked at the pastor, perplexed. An offer? Could it be - had he agreed to open up about the true nature of the walls?
Levi must have read the excitement on her face. Grimacing he shook his head. “He hasn’t agreed to help us with anything useful – yet,” he ground out the last word, an unsubtle threat.
“My ceremonies were quite sought after in Stohess, actually. I even allow time for individuals to include their own vows,” the pastor said, effortlessly changing the subject.
Levi rose in one fluid motion. “Yeah, you’re gonna wait outside.” Grabbing the pastor by the front of his shirt, he dragged him up. The pastor yelped as Levi sent him stumbling out of the tent.
Hanji watched the exchange, mouth agape. It almost sounded like the pastor was talking about,“…Levi, is he offering to-?”
“He’s an old, senile bastard and I think you rattled a few brain cells loose when you hung him off the wall,” Levi muttered. The tips of his ears were cherry red.
Hanji almost left it at that. Almost. But he looked so damn uncomfortable. She couldn’t help herself.
“Is there any particular reason why our friend Pastor Nick wants to marry us?”
