Chapter 1: Gray
“Hey why is everybody crowding the request board?” Gray asked. Team Natsu had just came back from a very brutal quest to take out some demons ( in which there was destruction of an entire town and Natsu burned everything). Gray was tired and worn out. “It’s this strange job request on the board.” Lucy said. Gray walked over to the board to see. It read:
Ice Bucket Challenge! For a good cause, dump a bucket of ice and water over your head or donate 100,000 jewels for ALS.
“Who the in their right mind would dump a bucket of icy water on their head? I rather give the money if I had that much.” Lucy said. Natsu shrugged his shoulders. “It sounds like fun but it’s still water. Can’t go near that stuff.” “I’ll take the challenge if Gray-sama does!” Juvia said, with hearts in her eyes. Gray looked at the request board again. “Just what is ALS anyway?” He asked. Levy walked over with a book in her hands. “Well by mediaplayer"> by mediaplayer"> by mediaplayer"> according to this book, ALS or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a disease that attacks nerve cells and the spinal cord. It stops the nerve cells from working and can cause paralysis. In other words, stops you from moving.” “Not being able to move would be terrible! Imagine the things you can’t do without moving!” Natsu said. “Aye all the things you wouldn’t be able to do!” Happy thought aloud. Lucy groaned. “You guys have to focus on the fact that this disease needs a cure.” Gray took the request off the board. “Hey what are you doing?” Natsu asked. “What does it look like, I’m going to take the ice bucket challenge.” The whole guild looked at Gray with shock. “I’ll help you my beloved. Juvia wants to help find a cure too!” Juvia said. “Well if Gray’s doing it, I guess it’s right if we all do it.” Erza said. Gray grinned and walked to the bar. “Hey Mira do you have a bucket I could use?” Mira looked all over the bar. “Sorry Gray I don’t seem to have buckets, but you can use this barrel!” She gave the barrel to Gray who almost toppled over. “Okay now I need some water. Juvia do you think-“ “Juvia would love to help Gray-sama with his job!” Juvia used her water magic and filled the barrel to the top. “Thanks now for the ice. Ice make: Ice shards!” He filled the barrel with ice shavings. “Now are you going to dump it on your head!” Natsu said. “Not in the guild hall. Let’s take this outside.” Gray heaved the barrel on his back and walked out the door.
“Are you sure you want to go through this Gray?” Lucy asked. “If it’s for a good cause, yes.” He replied. “Hey can I pour it on your head?” Natsu asked, happily. Gray rolled his eyes. “Fine but first…” He took off his shirt making Juvia squeal in delight. “Now I’m ready!” He looked at his guildmates. “I, Gray Fullbuster, hereby nominate Natsu Dragneel and Erza Scarlett to take the ice bucket challenge.” “WHAT!” Natsu shouted almost tipping over the barrel. Erza just smiled. “Okay Gray challenge accepted.” Gray nodded and closed his eyes, bracing himself for impact. It never came. “Hey Natsu what’s taking so-“ SPLASH! Icy cold water fell upon the head of Gray Fullbuster. Everybody laughed as Gary wiped his face. “THAT WAS HILARIOUS!” Natsu shouted, laughing. Gray smiled and raised his head high. “Um.. Gray your clothes.” Lucy said, pointing down. He looked down to see his pants on the ground! “Aw come on really!” He shouted.And thus the Fairy Tail Ice Bucket Challenge began!
