Her face glowed from the light source of the small screen. Tears dripped down from her cheek, creating small puddles on her phone. She felt heartbroken, betrayed, and used. All the signs were there, the way he put their relationship on a back-burner, and now with proof of his scandalous affair. Out of all the people she thought would betray her, she never thought it would be him.

He was so dependent on her, after all she was the first one to show him what love truly was. He didn't grow up in a perfect family, his father was never in the picture and his mother died when he was young. His uncle took him in, but would verbally and physically abuse him.

And then she came into the picture, her arms open wide, she rescued him from the chains of darkness and showed him the light. Her words were soft-spoken, unlike his uncle's- full of hatred and disgust. Her hands were used to embrace him, hold him, and love him; never did she take her anger out on him. She fixed his wings and he learned to fly.

And all she asked for was just a little bit of his heart.

Oh, you can't hear me cry
See my dreams all die
From where you're standing
On your own.

She heard the front door open and close, alerting her that he was home. She quickly shut off her phone, and put it on her nightstand. Sinking into their bed, she pulled the covers over her body and shut her eyes.

Heavy foots steps trudged up the stairs, and then the door creaked open.

"[Name]..?" A voice called, but she ignored it. "I know you are awake brat." He droned, walking towards the other side of the bed and sat down.

"How was work?" She asked.

"It was fine, sorry I had to work late. I missed you." He apologized.

"Sure you did..." She mumbled, a single tear falling down her face.

"Seriously [Name]? I work and all you do is sit on your ass watching Netflix. So don't give me that shit!" He yelled and stormed out of the room.

The front door slammed closed, and she started to cry more. 

It's so quiet here
And I feel so cold
This house no longer
Feels like home.

Her cries filled the quiet home. She felt so alone, vulnerable, and broken. After all she did for him, she still wouldn't  be enough for him. [Name] peeled the sheets off her body, and slid out of bed. She couldn't live here anymore, the house was made of lies and betrayal. [Name] pulled out her luggage and stuffed her belongings in it. After she was done, she scribbled a note to the deceitful man, and grabbed her keys. Taking one last look at the house, she left without any second thoughts.

She drove to the only person she could trust- the one who sent her the photos.

Walking up to his porch, she pounded her fist on the door.

A light turned on from inside the apartment, and she could hear feet shuffling. The door creaked open, and a friendly face popped out.

"[Name], what are you doing here?" He asked, shoving his hands in his pockets.

[Name}'s head fell, her shoulders bouncing up and down from her sobs.

The man let out a sigh and embraced her in a hug. "It's going to be alright. I'm here for you." He comforted her, his hands combing her soft [h/c] locks. He pulled her into his warm home and shut the door.

[Name] started to tell him what happened, and he listened intently. Something Levi used to do.

After she finished talking to him, Eren pulled her into another hug. "[Name] stay here as long as you want." He smiled, kissing her cheek.

Oh,when you told me you'd leave
I felt like I couldn't breathe
My aching body fell to the floor

Levi smiled, his thoughts went back to the woman he just saw. Sure, she wasn't his girlfriend of two years, but she did give him what he wanted. He knew his infidelity was wrong, but that didn't stop him. After a shitty life, he deserved to have something on the side.

Levi shook off his smile and opened the door into his apartment. He prayed that [Name] was sleeping, he didn't want to deal with her right now. As he walked up the stairs, for the second time this night, he felt a change in the atmosphere.

Opening the door of their bedroom, he was greeted with an empty bed. Levi frowned, "[Name]?" He called out, but he received no answer. He headed towards the bed and noticed a piece of paper on the sheets. He lifted it up and read it.


I hope she loves you and gives you the love you deserve. I am praying that she gives you her undivided attention and fulfills your every need. I wish you all the happiness in life and I hope you are happy. Goodbye.

~[Name] [Last Name]

His eyes widened, he dropped the paper on the ground and grabbed a fistful of hair. His knees gave out and he found himself on the floor. Levi punched the carpet and started to convulse in sobs. His mind flooded with thoughts as he regained himself.

How could he be so stupid to do something like this to her?

Why didn't he just stay loyal?

Is this how she felt?

Levi didn't even want to think about how his sin affected her, how his adulterous actions destroyed their relationship. All he wanted to do is make things right with her. He pulled out his phone and quickly dialed her number, hoping she would pick up.

Then I called you at home
You said that you weren't alone
I should've known better
Now it hurts much more.

"Hello?" A groggy voice answered.

"[Name]!" He cried out.

Another voice came from the other side of the call, but Levi couldn't hear anything he was saying.

"[Name]?" He repeated.

She sighed, "What do you want?" She asked with a yawn.

"I'm so sorry, I-I didn't mean to hurt you. I-I know I was taking you for granted, I didn't m-mean to cause you any p-pain." He stuttered out and added, "Where are you?"

"Levi, it's fine. All I want is your happiness, and if she makes you happy then i'm glad. I'm staying at Eren's place. The apartment is yours, okay?"

Levi's heart fell from his chest. "You don't understand I love you! I only love you, you're the only brat I love." He confessed, hoping she would take him back.

"Levi, if you love two people at the same time, choose the second. Because if you really loved the first one, you wouldn't have fallen for the second. Goodbye." She hung up.

Levi's head went down and his phone dropped to the floor.

She didn't understand, he only loved the first one and her name was [Name] [Last Name].

This is very good I very liked to resistance of taking him back and still being nice even if heartbroken honestly I would have done the same thing she did well I did but also added "I guess I wasn't enough for you huh" and "even if I'm heartbroken I wish you the best of luck" either way this was very good please write a sequel if you haven't yet but I wish the reader words showed how heartbroken she was still mature about it but showed how betrayed she felt also asking after everything I done you do this.

This was a truly beautiful piece of literature made for fans like us. The smooth flow of the words paint pictures full of sentimental feelings and emotions of not only the reader's heartbreak, but also her heart's kindness and willingness to let someone else be with Levi, as long as he is happy. I also enjoyed Eren being the comfort after the heartbreak. Even though at some point the story made me a bit angry at Levi, I kind of understood how he felt. This was such a realistic example of love and heartbreak, I give you two thumbs up! :) Love your writing style.

OMIGOSH this is exactly how I would act in response because there's no way I could stand to get mad at him if he was my boyfriend of two years. I can barely get mad at my best friends, and the way I see it, your significant other is closer to you than your best friends. I would just go bother Eren and feel bad about it, but realize that I couldn't go back to Levi.
