Things never go the way they're supposed to. There's always one flaw , one slip up that can change a future.
The one ripple in Reiner's plan was believing that he could actually love someone without consequences.
Such a vile creature like himself didn't deserve the affection you had given him. The angel like kisses, the warm embraces. He didn't deserve any of it.
Though he didn't have to worry about it any longer. You were gone. One slip on your part , one ounce of fear in your heart and you were devoured. Right before his eyes.
He didn't want to believe it. Even though he had seen it happen, he refused to acknowledge the fact that such a caring person like you was snuffed out of the world.
He had locked himself up at first. Not showing any signs of emotion because of your death.
Though the absence of you slowly started to show.
He had no one to hold anymore. No one to tell sweet nothings to him.
Then he started to forget your voice. Your beautiful laughter that carried out through the mess hall. Your breathy moans whenever you two indulged yourselves. Gone.
Finally , the part that struck him to the core , even to this day , was that he had forgotten your face. Your eyes that shined whenever he appeared in the room. Your lips that curved up whenever he spoke. Disappeared. A distant memory.
It was then he realized that you were never coming back. He could no longer feel your touch. No longer hear your voice. No longer see your face. All he had left was a name.
Reality had finally caught up with him. And there was nothing he could do about it.
