Chapter 21: Strength
"Fight?" You questioned. Your father had offered to tell Levi the identity of your uncle, or his original identity at least, if he saw you fight, which was a very confusing request.
"The fact that you spent the majority of your most important years of development sleeping has affected your depth perception, sense of distance, time and direction," your father stated. "Even if you're healthy now and are no longer trapped in the haze of medicines meant to extend your life, you simply never developed any of that. That is why you bumped your head on the door when you were trying to eavesdrop, but you're so used to those little bouts of clumsiness that you didn't even notice."
Your jaw dropped, thinking back on it, he was right. When you were helping Levi against the ninja, you always misjudged the distance of your shot. You aimed to hit them square in the chest and instead hit limbs and heads, as they were too close to miss entirely, but you would ha
The Office, the Mafia and Pizza [ Levi x Reader ]The Office, the Mafia and Pizza
You knocked on the door of the CEO's office, a voice granting you permission to enter from inside. You went in, but the large polished wood desk was empty. The office was not empty of people though, other than you, there was a man on his knees, reaching under the desk to clean. From the current angle, his behind was certainly a sight to behold. "What is it?" The man called impatiently, not changing his position.
"I have some documents for the CEO," as the company receptionist, you did everything from answering the phone, to receiving and delivering official documents, to making tea and coffee. It wasn't the first time that you had to deliver something to the CEO's office, but once again he wasn't there.
"Put them on the desk," the man finally stood, brushed nonexistent dust off the knee area of his pants and moved over to clean the windows. You left the papers on the desk and exited the office.
This kind of scene happened often when you delivered documen

Chapter 20: Truths and Negotiations
You tensed as you listened to the conversation going on beyond the closed door, between Levi and your father. "I want the truth, all of it," you heard Levi demand.
"That is knowledge I do not possess," your father calmly replied.
"Then what do you know?" Levi insisted in a no nonsense tone.
"Not much," your father admitted, though that was a matter of opinion. "My brother in law may know more, but I would sooner die than show him ingratitude or provoke his wrath. Don't bother asking (Name) I made sure she never knew who her uncle was."
"The records shows that your late wife didn't have any siblings," Levi pointed out.
"He likes his privacy," your father replied with a tone of forced serenity.
"I'm not here to waste time," Levi reminded. This was getting really tense and you feared it would become violent. You didn't want them to fight, but how could you stop them?
"(Name) stop listening at the door and come inside," your fat

Chapter 19: White Knight
Levi got cleaned up and changed into a uniform. You went to get cleaned up next, wondering if he really was planning to continue with his day without rest. At least he wasn't wearing the uncomfortable shoes anymore, but he hadn't really gotten any rest. After you were all clean, you curiously went to see what Levi was up to, but couldn't resist making a small detour to the kitchen. Sasha was on cooking duty that morning along with Mary Anne and Hange, and Sasha was an amazing cook, when she didn't eat the ingredients.
More cadets had began waking up and roaming the hallways on their way to the mess hall by then. You resumed your search for Levi, but he found you before you could spot him. "We can talk about what you learned now," he made it clear that he wasn't going to wait any longer.
You followed him to his room without protest and sat down. "You already know father's broke," you stated. "That's part of the reason why he sent me to you, b
