Summary: The darkness settled inside you again and yet you strained a smile. You pulled your sleeve down lower, wanting to hide your scars as you hid your pain. 'I'm okay,' you whispered. Even though you spoke those two words, you knew you wouldn't be okay. As you turned away you couldn't help the tears. 'I'm okay,' you kept repeating. 'I'm okay.' You were a new transfer student in your sophmore year of highschool. With a painful childhood that continued to haunt you, more problems surfaced. Bullied and unable to stop it, you plunge farther into the dark abyss. Yet, even after guarding your heart, you're unable to stop yourself from falling in love. Through many struggles, you find something that can help you find your way out of the darkness; Hope. (And Levi, heh). Hello everyone! I have found a hard time finding a "realistic" fanfic or one that is less mushy and more...feels-ish? I just want to create something reader-chan can relate to since everything is so nice and fluffy (which is nice most of the time). I have decided to make one that doesn't just give you the warm and fuzzy feeling but also the true battle inside of you. I hope you enjoy it my fluffies!~By the way, there is no Lemon in this (sorry! It would be wayyyyy too awkward for me to handle...⁄(⁄ ⁄ˊૢ⁄ ⌑ ⁄ˋૢ⁄ ⁄)⁄ ). Nonetheless, I hope you like it!
