Lives Remaining: 2
The L'Manberg revolution was a part of your past that you did not like talking about. It started when you moved to the SMP, instantly being brought inbetween the rising tensions within the server. Wilbur Soot, damned as he may be, charmed you into joining his side. He promised you a life you always wished you had. Yet, he was never able to deliver. Within your first month of living on the SMP, you had already fought battles with the people opposed to your revolution, made friends with your comrades. Wilbur held your hand through the blood, the tears. You fell in love, and you thought he did too. You announced your new relationship to the L'Manberg residents. Most had been supportive..
Eret had quickly became your best friend in the time of the war. The two of you shared everything. He revealed his eyes to you, you described your first canon death. You considered him a brother.
Then, the final control room. He lead all of you in there, and let you die. Dream stabbed you, your body dropping, then disintegrating, respawning back in your room. You look down at your arm. One heart left..
The Schlatt Administration had been hellbent on keeping Wilbur and Tommy out, and keeping their citizens in. Unfortunately for him, you were blindly in love with Will, sacrificing everything to visit him. He convinced you to stay. You did..
Everyday in Pogtopia was torture. Will has slowly descended into a crazed ideology that there had been only one way to get his country back. It genuinely terrified you. This wasn't your boyfriend from a few months prior. This wasn't the man who had been making potions in a hot dog van, this was someone else entirely. You tried to leave, telling him you didn't want to be with him anymore. Will always said that if you left, he would be broken. He would destroy L'Manberg if you left. He would do anything to keep you. The two of you danced, him toying with your fear until he decided he was bored.
The day of the festival, he forced you to attend, forced you to watch as he blew up your home, along with any dreams of a future. You broke down, after hearing the cry of the wither. You hid within the broken remains of some long forgotten building, shaking, crying, blood dripping from somewhere onto the cracked ground below you. You were found the next morning by Karl and Sapnap, them taking you by the hand to a better place.
Months after the revolution, as L'Manberg was being rebuilt, you wandered what was left of the ruins, when you bumped into a mass, causing you to fall. Or, well, you almost fell. The mass caught you, whispering, "Be careful, love, don't want you getting hurt here". Looking up, you see the familiar sunglasses of your former best friend. "Eret?" you whisper, pulling your hand up to his cheek. She nods, helping you straighten up. You pull them in for an embrace, holding her close. "I missed you," you whimpered, soft tears breaking loose and streaking down your face. She held you close, letting you cry as the sun began to set of the past.
Weeks pass, you and Eret begin to rebuild what your relationship had once been. But, something this time was different. You felt a feeling you have felt before, the stupid, cursed feeling you felt for that son of a bitch Wilbur. You panicked, not wanting to believe that your worst fears were coming true. You ran to Karl, explaining the feelings you were feeling, and saying you were scared. Karl held your hands, and said, "Trust your heart. It wouldn't make the same mistake twice."
Nodding, you wipe your tears and left. You wondered the SMP, running into Eret. You and him decided to go on a walk, talked about everything and anything (all of the time). Near a lake, the two of you sat. The funny feeling appeared again, and you sat up and looked into the water. Eret, concerned, asked, "Y/N, what's wrong my dear?" You sat for a second, and then a second more.
"I think I'm in love with you, and that terrifies me"
Eret takes a second to think, and then puts one hand on your's, the other on your cheek. "My love, I've loved you since we met. Whatever Wilbur did to you, you don't have to tell. What I can tell you, is I will give you anything you wish, any time you wish. The moment you call my name, I will be by your side. No matter what"
You smile at him, lean into his hand. He kisses your forehead, and pulls you closer. He turned you so you were resting in his lap, laying back against him. You both watch the sun rise on your future, letting yourself truly rest for the first time in a long time.
