the days of summer

Lucas Till and his brother Nick spending some quality time together(with their mom) before Lucas heads back to LA 💕

Last thought for the day:

Do people who live on Pacific time (or Arizona in the summer) ever get used to this sensation that Everything Already Happened in time zones east of here? That we are somehow late to the party of American daily happenings?

OK....I had an idea since they didn't let us buy the clothes from last year's Valentine event...What if they are plotting a summer boutique thing. Like Purriry will open a special shop for a couple of days or hours during the summer event and we will be able to buy the clothes from previous events? :^) Chino, Hikaru...I have my eyes on you both muhahahaha

Erwin’s diary is forever full. Levi never knew when the man rested or even took a breath. Erwin was in his office one summer’s day when the grounds were quiet, a Sunday where there is very little activity except for Erwin he continued at his normal relentless pace. Levi walks into Erwin’s large stuff office both windows open and his work held in place by paperweights. He doesn’t acknowledge Levi’s presence so he walks over to his desk and perches right at Erwin’s left side, crossing his arms over his chest. Not even a hello? How rude. Levi thinks as he turns his head away from the window and to the Erwin’s profile. Then he notices. He sees Erwin shaking his leg Levi can do nothing but roll his eyes, even the commander is a bloody child.

“Erwin.” He says causing Erwin to startle, whipping his head quickly to his side to finally notice Levi.

“Oh Sina, Levi. How long have you been standing there?”  He smiles eyes still wide as he turns his attention back to his desk, back to work. Levi huffs loudly shaking his head.

“Go to bloody toilet Erwin, you are jiggling like a baby.”

“I will after I finish reading this.” That was the last straw for Levi, not like he had many straws to begin with. He slams his hand on top of the paperwork leaning into Erwin’s personal space. “Go take your piss, this will be here when you return.” He rips the paperwork out of Erwin’s grip. His commander glares at him, not that Levi cares he feigns interest on the paperwork (tax audit). Erwin says nothing as he makes his way out of his own office and to the communal toilets.

Now alone Levi lets out a long sigh rubbing his hand over his forehead, rolling his neck to relieve some strain. He casts a glance over Erwin’s desk filled with crap but he knows better than to tidy up. The last time he did that was the first time in years Erwin had shouted at him with more venom than the criminals of the underground. Under a small pile of paper, he find’s Erwin’s planner curiosity getting the better of him he reaches over and takes hold of the leather-bound book. Erwin’s name on the front in gold, he allows a small selfish indulgence and strokes his thumb across the golden letters. The Diary is packed to the brim sheaves of paper poke out of each and every way. Numbers, names, lists even the odd doodle or too causing Levi to smile softly.

He flicks to today and sees each piece of paperwork Erwin intends on doing that day, and Levi knows that, without a doubt all the designated papers of today will be completed even if a titan chose this moment to attack. But he notices a small blank space between completion of one item on the list to the next one. He reaches for Erwin’s inkwell and quill and scratches a small word “relax” he huffs with satisfaction as he draws a small wobbly image of a person, the best he could muster, apply large eyebrows and a bolo tie.  He knows, Erwin will ignore the request but he hopes, even for a moment Erwin will smile. He hasn’t smiled lately, and as much as Levi hates to admit it. He misses the Commanders loud laugh and lopsided smile.

Satisfied and a job well done he pushes himself off the large oak desk, placing the planner where he had found it. He out of the office before Erwin even returns.

It’s not until about 3 hours later does Erwin reach over for his diary, He cannot remember what was the next priority on his list, everything is a Priority it is up to him to figure out what took precedence first. He finally comes across the small and terrible doodle of himself. He can’t help but laugh, leaning back in his chair. He turns his chair to face the window, it is such a lovely day and many of the recruits are enjoying the hot weather. Maybe a break won’t be too bad? He pushes his large frame off of his chair, groaning softly. His body growing old. As he opens his door he finds Levi leaning against the wall opposite his office door, a small smirk forming on his lips. “here I thought I would need to drag you away kicking and screaming.”

“it’s okay, you’re a cute emotional wreck.” ☀︎

some days you wake up feeling like a champion. the sun clearly rose to your feet and kissed your skin as it came up, drawing clouds your way to make sure the weather wouldn’t kill you and everything felt like the perfect puzzle piece to form a great day ahead of you. those days were the ones you lived for, ached for, wanted to breathe it in and let it sink deep into your body to remember what it feels like to win at life. those days are the ones that seungcheol comes home to summer when it’s winter.

some days… aren’t like that.

some days you wake up with the intention of never wanting to. the sun felt like it’s torturing you just as it rakes through your skin and drags you awake with the light blinding your eyes. those days were the ones you wanted to bury down in your chest and never speak of it again. those days were a reminder of what it feels like to lose at living when the only thing you do without trying is living. those days were the ones that seungcheol comes home to winter when it’s summer.

whichever, however, as long as it’s you, he’s prepared.

he starts off with a quiet coo of your name that announces his presence. though, the sound of the door closing and rummaging of items onto the dining table and cabinet really gives him away. but he’ll give you the benefit of the doubt that you’re not quite in the position to pay attention to any of that.

he continues with getting on your level, in other words, his knees because you tend to squeeze yourself in small spots by the balcony window and that is beside the sofa, on the floor. he tries to lure you out with arms reaching in, and even though you look like you’re about to sock him in the face because i want to be alone, cheol.

yeah? then why are you moving already?

seungcheol doesn’t press on it too much, chuckling when you crawl onto his lap where he rests his bum on his folded legs and finds leverage to balance you on him. it’s not long until his aura, one that you’re certain god spent a long time in perfecting cradles you in and he feels the tearstained cheeks re-staining themselves as his fingers go through your hair, the other latched onto your waist as a safety belt.

yet, it’s humorous when you say past your hoarse voice: “i’m an emotional wreck,”

he only responds with a kiss on your head, a smile soon after, “it’s okay, you’re a cute emotional wreck.”

SPRING BREAK!!! It’s the first day of Spring Break in my house and my boys are very upset that I’m making them do their school today. Such a mean mom. (Don’t they get it? This will mean they’re done a day earlier for Summer break!) So I guess their Spring Break will actually start tomorrow :)  I think the sun is coming out today!! I can see it trying to peek through. So I’m making myself walk to the lake for today’s workout. I need the outside so I don’t care if I get rained on. 

Happy Thursday!!
