Chapter 6: Please Help Me!
As Harold parked the car at home I got out and dragged my suitcase out of the trunk. They had not spoken a word on the drive home and they still didn't. It felt colder here than it ever had so I figured it would be best to sneak off to my room instantly and keep out of their way, but Karen stopped me on the way up the stairs.
"We hope they were right about you. We hope that you are better now. Don't try to trick us" Her tone gave me goose bumps.
"Of course not, ma'am" I replied politely.
She smiled a sceptical smile "Good. Dinner is served in an hour. Go unpack and wash off or you won't get a bite of anything"
"Yes, ma'am" I answered mechanically and dragged my suitcase to the first floor.
As I entered my room I hurried to my loose floorboard and hid the letter from Ludwig before I started to unpack my suitcase. They wouldn't get hold of this if I had a say in it!
Dinner was quiet as always. Harold and Karen would talk quietly about things I had no interest i

Chapter 8: He Has To Come Back...
I was very silent up to the days Ludwig left. I went to work in the morning, came home in the afternoon and cried in the evening. Carly knew and she tried to comfort me but it was no use. I was feeling like everything had been taken from me, everything that mattered. Ludwig didn't even have to go back to the camp before Thursday morning, but I still didn't want to see him. He would not help me in the attempt to mend my broken heart and so it was easier just to reject him.
Carly attempted to cheer me up time and time again, trying to convince me I should see him before he left, but every time I'd shoo her off. I just couldn't!
Thursday morning she woke me up, shaking me roughly as only she could do it.
"Okay, get up! GET UP!"
I looked confused at her and then at the time: It was 4 am.
"Carly, what the hell..." I started but was interrupted.
"You're going down to the street now!" she commanded.
"Why?" I asked sleepily.
"Because Gilbert is taking Ludwig o

Chapter 5: The Military Can't Break Me!
It was July... I had stayed out of Beilschmidt's way for the past month and just stayed slightly disobedient. I kept rubbing in his face how nothing he did had an impact on my persona. I started to feel more and more guilty though... The stinging feeling in my chest grew worse every time I crossed him and seeing his frustrated facial expression only made it worse.
After the afternoon practice I was heading towards the dining hall with the rest of the team. They were all chatting happily, but I for one stayed quiet. I started to fall behind and stopped for a moment to get some peace. Then I heard voices... Frustrated, hissing voices!
Even though I knew it was none of my business I couldn't help being curious. If I was caught it would only get me more trouble, and that was good, right?
I went in the direction of the sound and stopped by General Benson's office. I could hear his deep voice's growl through the door and the annoyance of someone else's

I went back to my problematic being after that incident in the forest. I just didn't refuse to do my push ups because I didn't want to end up in the same situation, revealing a little bit of myself to him.
I was still slacking horribly though and he screamed his lounges out at me every single time. By the end of the day his throat was worn out and there was no longer the same sound volume left in him. I liked that. He wanted to break me but I broke him just a little every day.
One night I had trouble sleeping though. I twisted and turned in my bed and feeling how I got more annoyed by the minute. Then Carly peeked down with a tired face.
"Stay still, I'm trying to sleep up here!"
"Sorry, I can't sleep" I whispered annoyed.
She had been my rock the last week, slacked with me and taken punishments with me, but truth be told: I don't think she did it to support me as much as she did it to tease Beilschmidt!
"You know... I think you need to let out some anger and I know just the place wher

Chapter 7: Hello and farewell
Ludwig took me to live in his apartment an hour away from my old home. It was a nice place, very tidy and clean. I enjoyed spending time there! Carly had also come to live with me since she had nowhere else to go and somehow had managed to convince him to let her join me.
Ludwig had moved to his parents house since he was only home from the military on weekends and every time he looked at Carly's room his eyebrows would start twitching and he'd look like he was about to blow!
Carly had this idea that it was much better to spread her clothes all over the room to keep it "within reach" and then she could use the wardrobe to hide in because "wardrobes are for hiding!" as she said. I had given up trying to convince her to clean her room and instead just closed the door. The rest I kept as he preferred it: spotless!
Every now and then she'd practice acrobatics in the apartment. She was incredibly flexible and could do the weirdest things with her body. She even

Chapter 11: One, Two, Freddy's coming for you...
Ludwig didn't stay at the house very long. He stayed at his parents' house for two weeks and then it was back to the military, leaving me alone five of the seven days in the week. I didn't mind it that much though. Yes, I was very addicted to him now that he was my boyfriend and yes, I didn't want to spend a second without him, but I had tried this before with just seeing him in the weekends so I was sure I'd pull through.
Carly and Gilbert were being real buttholes about our relationship though, always going on and on about how we should "do it" and "do what grown-ups do". I had no doubt Ludwig wanted to, in fact, I KNEW he wanted to. Numerous times I'd make out with him during the weekends we got to spend together, and I loved every second of it, but it stopped the second he seemed to lose control. I wanted him too, of course I did, but I wasn't as old as him and though I had never asked, I was sure he had had other women before me and

Chapter 14: Unexpected
As I woke up in my bed at the base with a sigh I had this constant feeling in my heart, nagging, annoying me, making me feel somewhat sad... I was not used to the feeling of needing anyone but myself, I was raised that way, and yet here I was, in the need of my girl, missing her...
I sighed and ran my fingers through my hair. It was difficult to get up in the morning at the base, even though I had been used to these early hours for years. I felt my heart was elsewhere than my body but the problematic recruits made it easier for me to pass time. It was going to be good to blow the whistle this morning; it would keep me busy the rest of the day.
The recruits looked tired as always. I stared into their eyes, seeing their rebelliousness, their need to cross me, their anger and their pain and sorrow. They were all here because something, somewhere in their life, had gone wrong, either caused by their parents, other people or themselves. Some were worse than others of

Chapter 9: The Return
~~~Ludwig's POV ~~~
This war is starting to get to me. It is taking too long, so many good soldiers have died and all I can do is try to keep myself safe and alive so I can go home in one piece. But I guess one more day here is bringing me one day closer to return home... It is a miracle I am still unharmed, only expectable scratches, but they don't hurt - at least not as much as my heart...
I feel sorrow for each man lost and the miss from being away from her brings me sadness every day. She won't leave my head...
They can hurt me as much as they want, they can scar my body and kill the people around me, but I won't die, she deserves for me to come back. I want to go back!
My superior says it'll be tome to leave soon. Then I won't be needed anymore. He has been saying this for months now, but I guess that is the horror of war. We never know what exactly to expect, we just hope that what is to come will come soon and we won't die waiting.
