“Eren?” Levi called out,
closing the front door behind him. “Are you home?”
He could hear movement coming from
inside the apartment but there was no sign of Eren out front so he took off his
shoes and headed to their bedroom where he could hear Eren shushing and cooing
at someone. As he got closer to the door he called for Eren again and his partner
emerged from their bedroom looking disheveled and out of breath, closing the
door right behind them.
“Oh! You’re home early. I wasn’t
expecting you for another—” Eren panted and paused to look at the clock.
“Never mind then, how was your day?”
Levi just rubbed his face, not in
the mood to drag this out any longer. “What’s in the bedroom?”
“Okay, fuck I’m not ready for
this.” Eren started whispering to themselves before dragging their eyes to
look at Levi. “You need to promise me you won’t get angry, okay?”
“Eren, you’re not making it
any better.” Levi remarked. “Just show me already.”
“Okay so I went to the animal
“But Levi, I haven’t even said
anything yet.” Eren whined.
“No.” Levi pinched his
nose, his day starting to weigh heavily on him. “We’re not getting a
“But Levi you haven’t even
seen them yet.” Eren mumbled under their breath, playing with the hem of
the dress they were wearing.
“No, Ere—” He started
when it registered. “Them?”
“Heh, funny story.” Eren
trailed off, hand messing up their hair even more.
“Just show me and get it over
Eren stepped to the side and
opened the bedroom door to let Levi inside and nothing could have prepared him
for what was inside. On their dresser was a small cage holding the cutest
little grey and white streaked bunny that looked like it might be sleeping, on
the bed was a puppy, he looked like he might be a golden retriever but Levi
wasn’t exactly sure and finally on the floor in the corner was a little black
kitten that was curled up on a blanket.
Levi looked back to where Eren was
standing against the door frame and felt himself completely lose whatever
reservations he had about pets just from the look on Eren’s face. The plain
adoration and content that Eren was exuding from just looking at these babies
were enough to tear down any objections Levi had.
“You couldn’t just get one
Eren?” Levi sighed.
“I wasn’t going to get any in
the first place.” Eren said and bit their lip nervously. “You know I
go to the animal shelter sometimes to play with animals but when I went this
time, one of the workers told me about these animals who never get adopted
because there’s something wrong with them an—”
“Oh, Eren.” Levi cut
them off, reaching out for Eren to come over so he could hug them properly.
“It’s okay sweetheart, we can keep them but just please next time, and
please don’t let there be a next time, ask me first before springing this on me
like this, okay?”
Eren’s arms tightened around Levi
and then buried their head in the crook of Levi’s neck. “I just couldn’t
handle it. They were being rejected for being deaf or blind and I just needed
them to feel loved because everyone deserves to be loved.”
“I know baby, I know.”
Levi said softly, brushing Eren’s hair with his fingers. “So what are we
Eren’s face instantly brightened
and lifted their head up to look at Levi in disbelief. “We’re keeping
“Of course we are, like I’d
let you take them back after what you just tol—” He was then cut off by a
myriad of kisses being place all over his face and chant of thank you’s filling
the air as Eren jumped all of the place in his excitement.
though.” Was what Levi shouted as Eren went to croon at his new pets and
Eren just smiled their blindingly bright smile before going back to talking to
Levi had never been more in love.
