Even with Levi beside you that night, you could not sleep. Your mind was whirring, ticking over the conversation you had had with Erwin earlier in the evening.
Are you… Happy?
Were you? You turned your head slightly, gaze falling on the sleeping man at your side. His face was peaceful, his breaths coming in shallow puffs that ruffled the ebony hair that fell messily across his face. You felt your heart begin to beat faster at the mere sight of him, a warm feeling in your chest. When it was like this, yes, you were happy. But these moments were oh so rare…
How many of these moments would there be if he joined the Survey Corps? As much as you loved Erwin, those nights you spent sleepless and alone, worrying, praying for his safe return. You didn’t want to go back to that. And yet, was that life really so different to the one you lived now? At least Erwin was able to stay with you until morning. You would wake up to his tousled blonde hair and his warm embrace.

You froze as the two men stared each other down, Erwin with unwavering confidence, Levi with barely restrained anger.
“What is he doing here?” Levi snarled again.
You pulled your hands out of Erwin’s grasp and rushed to Levi’s side, but you were too late. The shorter man had already stridden forward, fists clenched and his face set with determination and fury. Erwin stood to meet him, expression grim, blue eyes never leaving those of the advancing man. Levi stopped before the Commander, gazing up into the face of the towering blonde soldier. Despite the obvious height difference, Levi stood as if he was ten feet tall, and Erwin faced him with a look that exuded a confidence that would intimidate any man. But Levi wasn’t any man.
Levi’s fists clenched. You opened your mouth in an attempt to dissuade him, but Erwin beat you to the punch.
“I wouldn’t do that if I were you,” he said softly. “I could have you arrested at any

Did I really make the right choice?
You had been asking yourself that questions a lot over the last two months, and always you would answer yes, though as time went on, the hesitation between question and answer became steadily longer, drawn out. Now, you could not even say it.
There was no doubt that you loved Levi, you had left your fiancé for him, but you could not help but wonder if it was the wrong choice to make. He had promised he’d be there for you, protect you with his own life, and yet where was he now? He hadn't told you, of course. His lifestyle did not exactly lend itself to the sharing of his criminal activities.
It wasn’t that you had expected him to sweep you off to his castle in the underground and make you his Queen, but you had hoped, at least, that he trusted you enough to tell you what he was up to. You had also expected to see more of him than you currently did, after he practically stalked you for three days when you had met. But

“Erwin told me you brought me home last night,” you said.
Levi merely grunted.
“Thank you,” you said, as earnestly as you could.
Surprised at your gratitude, he tilted his head back to look at you. His steel blue eyes, normally so hard and cold, had softened. You liked that look.
“But, it’s time you left, Levi. I’m alright now. I have Erwin to look after me.”
His soft gaze hardened in an instant. “I wager I could do a better job than him,” he spat.
“Better than the Commander of the Survey Corps?”
“Come with me,” he said, eyes pleading. “Run away with me. Forget about him. I’ll make you Queen of the Underground.”
You shook your head sadly. “I won’t become a criminal, Levi. You think I would give up everything for a life on the streets? You think I would leave the man I love for someone I met barely two days ago?”
Levi gave you a pained look. “What do days matter?
Better Than Me - Levi x ReaderMore Like This
It was always the same. Every night. Every damn night Levi would have nightmares about the soldiers he’d lost in battle, about the comrades he had to sacrifice for a better chance. They haunted him, seeing their blood stained faces calling and crying for him to save them in their final moments left him more damaged than he’d ever reveal.
He’d toss and turn, desperately searching for comfort in his sheets, wishing deeply that maybe tonight would be the night that the gods would bless him with a blank mind as he slept. But no, the load that weighed down the shoulders of Humanity’s Strongest Soldier was too heavy for even him to lift.
Beads of sweat gathered at his brow as he heard the blood curdling screams of the scouts dying around him, of all the people he couldn’t save because he was too weak.
God, he was weak.
But in the distance of the battlefield he heard a voice calling out to him, beckoning him to leave the bloody fight.
