Find me, because I’m lost in this reality. Guide me, and bring me to where my dreams have been hidden. Hold me, because you and your touch alone could soothe me of the pain. You are my only guarantee that I am actually alive and living. You are my proof that I am not merely existing.
Levi works in an accounting firm and has been in the same company ever since he finished his studies. He’s not one for taking risks, and given the fact that the economy is not doing great, and finding job is difficult, he opted to stay and be rooted to where he was. He finds some kind of comfort living his everyday in a routine, interacting with people he knew, not changing anything. He denies it, but sometimes, he finds himself asking, Am I really living?
Then one day, he decided to break his routine and just try something different. It was a difficult feat for him, feeling something is terribly off every single second. And from then on everything changed. As much as everything would change when you suddenly wake up one Saturday morning in an unknown place, beside an unknown person.
Eren, fresh graduate, currently unemployed but he is not bothered about the fact. He decided to take it easy after finishing the stressful last year of his undergraduate degree for architecture. Through his family’s connections, he could land any job in whatever company he wanted. His family is filthy rich, he has caring and understanding parents, a sister who dotes on him although it’s too much sometimes, a best friend he could always rely on, and to top it off, excellent physical appearance that could rival the Greek gods. He gets what he wants the way that he wants, with no effort needed. He has a good life, and he had it easy. So he is living his life the way he wanted.
That was until he met Levi, a drunk Levi. Eren was fascinated by him, so much that the moment he landed his eyes on the man, his gaze has never left him. He has one problem though. His I-get-what-I-want attitude does not apply to Levi.
All his life, everything that he wanted has always been at the tip of his fingers, but apparently Levi was the only exception. And it was frustrating him. He wanted the man, but first he wanted to be recognized by Levi not as a spoiled, rich brat who can’t do anything without his family’s influence. And so, Eren had decided to end his easy going life, work by himself for himself, just so Levi will see him as an equal.
But is Levi’s acknowledgment all he is after? Or is he aiming for something more…something better?
NOTES: I have read several fan-fiction about this ship, but was still sane enough to pick what I read. I like the modern setting of the alternate universe, in whatever plot it might be, reincarnation, mafia, music, school, name it. And for some reason, I try not to read fictions that was very much related to the original story, because I still love AoT/SnK very much. I haven’t even watched to the second live action film due to that fact. Because, I’ll be honest, the original story was still far better.
Anyways, so yeah, I have come up with my own. I know how I wanted it to end, but the real struggle will be how it will come about. I will try to make this short, unlike when I tried to make a long story with Danica and Jacob, which I did not really expect to have so many chapters in it. And yes, my writing, vocabulary and imagination will still be in the same crappy style. So if you wanted to look forward to this story, let me kill that excitement for you now. Despite reading lots lbgt stories, this is my first time actually writing one. And like Levi, I am not good with expressing myself in words.
By the way, ever heard of Spongecola’s (Philippine boy band/OPM) Myself in you? The first sentence was exactly from the song. Check it out maybe? Because that song is how this story formed in my head.
