He brought his leg up before striking it across the side of his head, causing the chained teen beneath him to grunt, tense as tears pricked and threatened to escape the hold of his eyes, blood dripping from his nose as he gasped for air, only to be kneed in the stomach countless times, unable to take a breath until he felt a foot grind his crotch. "Ho? This excited already?" The other asked, causing him to look up slowly with his beaten face and half-lidded bruised turquoise-green hues, letting out a sharp cry of pain as he applied pressure to the gentle muscle, crushing it with the heel of his foot. "C-Corporal, please...please stop!" Eren croaked as tears streamed down his bloodstained cheeks, gritting his teeth as he continued for a long while longer before stopping at the sound of banging on the door; Titan's had come.
At the sight of Eren, Mikasa let her blue-grey hues widen, watching the form limp out from the Corporals private head courters until he finally reached her, almost collapsing if it hadn't been for the ravenette reaching forward to hold him up. "Eren!" She gasped, causing him to raise his head weakly, becoming speechless as she saw his beaten face until glaring at Levi as he walked by, beginning to take out her blades, but Eren stopped her and shook his head, forcing a smile as he looked up at his childhood friend and pushed off her, staggering for a moment before regaining his balance. "It's fine, Mikasa. I'm fine." And with that, Eren mounted his horse besides Levi and remained silent.
As they rode, Mikasa could tell he was exhausted and if it weren't for his Appaloosa mare being a clumsy one and tripping ever now and than he would've been asleep. When she tripped for the hundredth time, Eren blinked his eyes wildly before looking towards Levi who was glaring at him. "Don't fall asleep, keep your guard up, idiot." The ravenette growled until looking forward once more.
Connie looked at Armin, clearly worried for Eren. "Armin, where did Eren get all those injuries from...?" He asked until Jean piped up. "Yeah, it looks like someone beat the crap out of him." The male commented, but the blonde remained silent, cerulean hues locked onto the injured male, knowing all too well where they had come from. Ever since Levi's squad had been killed during the attempt at capturing the Female Titan, he had blamed Eren for not protecting them, especially Petra, and now he took that anger out on him. As for Eren, he blamed himself for their deaths and with that, let Levi take his anger out on him, figuring it to be his rightful punishment. "Well, where did he get them from, Armin?" Connie asked him once more, bringing him back to reality. For a few moments, he was silent before whispering in a soft tone. "...By a hurt person..." Causing Connie to blink in surprise at how grave his tone was.
Suddenly, the ground began rumbling and they instantly knew what was causing it, pulling out their 3D Maneuver Gear, looking around until it suddenly stopped, tense. "What the...?" That's when they appeared, leaping from the trees and racing towards them, immediately taking out horses and humans. "Connie!" Sasha screamed as she was in the mouth of a Titan, fighting to break free from its tightening jaws. "Sasha!" The grey-haired male screeched, reaching for her as he swung by, but just before he was able to, the Titan split her in half, bloodied and broken organs falling from her abdomen, swallowing the lower half of her body, the rest falling to the ground, lifeless. Hot, sticky liquid pumped from her spasming body, eyes wide from her last moments of life. Connie let out a bloodcurdling scream, scrambling towards her before lifting the lifeless body. "Sasha! Sasha! Don't you dare die! Don't you dare leave me!" The gray-haired male spat, but she was long gone. However, the small twitches left him to believe she was still alive, paying no mind to the fact tht the waist down was missing and the jagged end of her spine was sticking out from her torn skin.
Connie then felt the sun disappear from his skin and he knew what it was, but his heart was broken and he was too terrified and weak to move. Just then, a large hand wrapped around him, but he hung limply, meeting the chocolate brown hues of the tighten until letting out a loud scream of agony as he could feel his organs and ribs being crushed as it applied pressure to his body, suddenly being cut off as his head popped off from his neck from the upwards pressure before being gobblede up by the Titan, his beheaded head rolling across the ground until halting at the foot of another soldier as he screeched, terrified as he looked at the blood head of the once Connie Springer, blood dripping from his eyes, nose, and mouth.
Eren watched in horror as his friends were killed off one by one. Jean had been squashed by a Titan, his body parts scattered across the ground. Mikasa and Hanji had been ganged up on by multiple Abnormal Titan's, and Armin had died facing off the Ape Titan that Levi had killed off long ago after Erwin had been tossed around like a rag doll by it. Now it was just the two of them, and Eren was exhausted to the point where he couldn't even bring himself into his Titan form but was still able to slash one of the Titan's nape deep enough to kill him, causing it to collapse beneath him. However, just as he was about to collapse from exhaustion, he noticed another Titan charging towards Levi who was already holding off two, just killing one. "Corporal!"
Before Eren knew it, he had found himself in the jaws of a Titan, letting out a sharp cry of pain as his lower half was crushed and he could hear the sounds of his bones breaking, tears brimming from his eyes as he struggled to escape and the pain enveloped him. Levi watched in utter horror before anger controlled him and he leapt onto the Titan, cutting it straight across the nape, blood spraying into his clothing until it hissed as steam arose from the decaying body once it had fallen the ground, the blood on his clothes disappearing as it evaporated until he looked at the limp form on the ground.
Amongst the stench and steam rising he could see Eren lying limply on the ground and immediately glided towards him before landing on the ground, rushing over him. "Eren...Eren..! Get up you piece of crap!" Levi spat, earning a stir from the form and a whimper sounding. Immediately, Levi kicked him, only to earn a bloodcurdling scream that caused him to flinch. "Eren!" The ravenette knelt down, quickly turning him over to hear a series of painful cries, soon to find that his lower half was not only completely useless now, but there was a deep bite wound in his abdomen and the teen was bleeding profusely.
"Why did you protect me, you idiot?" Levi asked in his best unwavering tone that was possible, causing the limp male beneath him to clutch his wound as he held back another scream and forced himself to chuckle. "What do you mean..."why?" Eren questioned, sliding his turquoise-green hues towards him, meeting narrowed Steele grey eyes. "You know what I mean, moron! Why...why did you save me...? After all the things I did to you..." Levi balled his hands into fists, his stomach lurching as Eren coughed up the bubbling blood in his throat until he heaved a breath. "...Why indeed..." He began until letting out a raspy chuckle. "Corporal, you're...really dense...Though, I guess I...knew somewhere deep down in my heart...you'd never feel the same way as I do...for you..." The male was quiet for a few moments. "What do you mean..?" The Corporal asked, feeling his heart clench. "I...love you..."
Levi felt a sharp pain in his heart and he was holding back tears. "Ah...Corporal...my visions gone....I...I can't see your face...Corporal, I can't see your face anymore...!" Eren was crying now, letting out sobs and Levi was stiffling his sniffles and raspy gasps, but Eren could hear them and clutched his wound as he hacked up more blood before trembling. "Corporal...please don't cry...I don't want you to cry because of me again...I don't want you to be sad anymore..." His lips trembled as his features scrunched up as he cried a river of tears. "S-Shut up, idiot! Whose crying?!" The ravenette demanded until his eyes widened when Eren held his face, smiling softly. "Don't cry, Corporal...I love you...I love...you...I..lov-" His features relaxed and his hands slipped from the males face as the light faded from his eyes, leaving Levi speechless until he placed his hands on Eren's chest, tears finding their way out of his eyes as he clutched the others bloody coat, gritting his teeth. "Eren...don't leave me...! Don't leave me all alone...!"
