Request: Hey ♡ Could you please write an Eric Coulter imagine where he tries to defends the reader and fights with one of her enemies who tried to kill her and during the fight he accindently hurts the reader and gets super worried and apologizes a lot. The Reader calms him down and they confess their love for each other?


I was walking down the halls of the Dauntless Compound, and I felt like I was being followed. Speeding up, I started thinking about who would want to follow me. The only person that I could think of was E/N. He had tried to kill me twice. Once in initiation, the other right after the choosing of our jobs. Why? It’s because I was better than him. 

The thought of him trying to kill me again scared me. I was exhausted from a long day at work, and didn’t have the energy to fight. If he attempted to kill me, then he would probably win. 

I felt a hand grab my arm, and I was shoved against the wall. “Hey, Y/N.” E/N said. “You have escaped me twice, but you’re not getting away this time.” 

He pulled back his hand getting ready to punch me, but something stopped him. His weight was pulled off of me, and I saw Eric, holding E/N by the collar of his shirt. “You touch her again, and I will personally make sure that you’re kicked out of the faction.” 

Eric pulled back his arm, and punched E/N in the jaw. In doing so, his elbow collided with my nose. Hearing an awful crack and feeling a stinging pain, I shrieked and shrunk to the ground. I heard feet running of, and I felt hands grab my face. 

“Oh, Y/N! I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry! I didn’t mean to. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry.”

“It’s fine, Eric. Thank you. Without you, I probably wouldn’t have survived tonight.”

“You don’t have to thank me. Not after I broke your nose.” 

I laughed. “I love you, Eric.” 

My eyes widened at what I had said. “I mean, I- I-” 

“I love you too, Y/N. I would kiss you right now, but there’s blood everywhere. Come on. Let’s get you to the infirmary.” He helped me up, and walked with me to the infirmary. We kissed after my face was cleaned up.
