Pairing: Levi and Eren
AU: Ladyhawke (Based off this)
The night was cold, the air nipping at his nose and fingertips. He dug his fingers into the warmth beside him, the other pulling the blankets closer around himself. Curling inward, he felt his back brush against the wall of the hole.
A whine brought his attention back to the wolf beside him, its breathing slightly ragged from the near death experience it had just gone through. Some of the obsidian fur still damp from the plunge into the ice water.
Eren resumed stroking the animal, light and gentle motions over the softness. Every once in a while his hand would tighten into a fist around the fur, loosening after a moment.
Soon the sun would rise and he would revert to his other form. Soon the sun would turn this beautiful wolf back into his lover.
Eren hoped and prayed to any god who would listen that Armin’s idea was right. If this wouldn’t work he would for sure be heartbroken. He just wanted to see his lover once, just once.
He could hear Armin and Erwin moving in the camp a ways away.He could hear the horses stamp and huff nearby. He could hear the crackle of the flames. He just couldn’t hear what he wanted. He wanted to hear Levi’s voice again. It had been so long that he could barely recall the voice he once took for granted.
Refocusing his eyes to gaze at the wolf, he continued caressing its fur.
The wolf shifted to push into his palm and Eren saw sunlight fall onto his fingers. He quickly retracted his hand, staring in wonder.
Slowly rising into a sitting position, one hand holding him up, he looked over his shoulder toward the mountains in the distance. In the corner of his eye he could see the sun peeking over the crests. Eyes wide in wonder at the first sunrise he’d seen in awhile, he raised his right hand into the air. The sun graced his fingers with light.
Distracted due to the light, he barely caught the movement next to him.
The brunette turned back to the wolf as the change began. The large form began to fade, a smaller one taking its place. Pale skin replaced raven fur, with raven hair. The blanket that had once covered the rear of the wolf now covered the lower half of a man. The softness of fur restored to hard muscle.
He gazed at his lover, eyes wondering what could be seen. He checked to see if anything had changed. He engraved it into his mind. His eyes absorbed every detail.
It was then when he noticed his lover’s eyes on him. Green eyes met amber ones. The wolf eyes also changed, reverting to the man’s grey eyes as Eren watched, hand covering his mouth.
Getting over his slight shock, he slowly reached out his hand toward his lover.
Levi rolled onto his stomach, eyes surprised but hopeful as he moved his own hand to meet his lover’s. Their hands were only inches away when Eren felt the change.
“Always together, eternally apart.”
Levi’s hand closed over empty air, his heart shattering as he watched Eren take off in his hawk form. He slammed his fist into the ground, yelling angrily, cursing any god he could think of and swearing twenty time’s over to bring about revenge upon the foul Bishop who had cursed them.
He would get his revenge. And after maybe he could find a way to end this.
