"Ugh, I'm really gonna give up on whatever shitty glasses advises me with. No matter how hard I try to hint it to her......" His tired, dull and monotone voice trails off. Levi plops on his bed, feeling more stressed out than before. The last thing he wants for now, is for you to cross his mind as you gently sway and dance in the corners in the back of his head. "Ugh what the hell. Why the hell do I have to be attracted to her in the first place?"
It was summer when he first met you. It was almost everything about you that pulled like a magnet. Well kind of, he thought that way at first. He deducted that it was attraction out of curiosity, nothing more. But his heart had said something else. Your smile, grace, beauty and brains were everything about you. It gets more worse for his heart when he sees you in classes that you guys take together in art college.
It was too contagious and bright that he could not look away. Always smiling, laughing and being kind to the others makes him wonder if you are something more than a ray of sunshine or a walking sunflower. Oh how he love the way you are so focused on your art pieces and being proud of every work you did, no matter how good or bad it was. He thought that you could not be any more beautiful for the way you are.
He thought about how he always wanted to confess but it will too out of the blue for he was afraid that the friendship would be ruined. What makes matter worse, is for his friend, Hanji to step up to the game. "Aw, come on Shorty, I know (Name) will have feelings for you, I'm pretty sure of it! It's just she's not ready to recognize them, yet! I'll give you a handful that would help!" Hanji flashed a smile and thumbs up, for Levi himself knew it could be the worst. But no harm in trying, right?
Well, he was wrong.
Every attempt he tried with Hanji's advice, you always brush it over with a smile and friendly rejections. He just ends up getting more frustrated at himself and wondered why in the world you are just too dense for romance. Or perhaps, he thought, is it just a one sided love?
The phone buzzes him out of his helpless thoughts, singing a rock tune from your favourite band that he went to a concert with you. He flicks the phone and presses against his ear. Your voice chirps on the other end, but this time with worry and concern. "Levi, you don't look well these days, are you alright?"
Levi rolls his eyes and sighs. "I am. Just pooped for the day."
You bit your lip as he did not sound very convincing. You decide to press him a bit further to really make sure.
"Are you really sure?"
"YES, I'm dang fine as hell cause you can't even take a freaking hint to know how much I love you and I'm suffering from this love sickness!"
His eyes immediately snap to a state of shock as he realizes what he had just said.
There is awkward silence on the line. Levi coughs as he begins to speak, but halts when you start.
"Levi...I'm.....sorry....I didn't know that you felt this way before for me. I have....feelings for you too....I'm sorry I'm just too dense about it.... I'm really stupid haha."
He immediately ushers you, on what you had said that in a comforting voice you have never heard before.
"No, no, no, you are not. You are smart, it's just that people take time to understand their feelings."
He swears that he can see you smile at the thought of his words.
"As for tomorrow, let's go ice skating to seal the deal. Deal?"
"Our feelings for each other."
Levi stares at the only message that appeared on his screen, never taking his eyes away from it.
Sure! Let's seal the deal tomorrow! I forget to mention that I love you since the first day I met you. ❤️'
