The Boy I just Meet is The Rebel

By Skyler Luoto

Drama / Romance

The Boy

“Please don’t leave. We all want you here.” My friends all wanted me to stay, but I already decided that I would go to Fairy Tail High School.


“I am sorry, but, I really want to go there. I will miss you, but I already decided.” Even though I would miss them all, I wanted to go, plus I wouldn’t be left out the first day I was there. I had Juvia, Gray, Erza, and Jellal, who also decided to go last year.


They all whined about how our “Friendship Group” was dwindling down. A “Friendship Group” was a group of friends that always stuck together. Normally there would be a special name, but since we couldn’t ever figure it out, it just turned into “Friendship Group”. “Please. What will the “Friendship Group do without you?”


I just sighed and continued on calmly. They were my friends, and I understood that they would miss me, but aren't friends supposed to support your decision a little. “Please. You are making it harder for me.”


“But you heard about the guy, right. I don’t really remember his name, but he is supposed to be quite the delinquent. Everyone is scared to go there, because of him.” Tucson wanted me to be safe, but I already knew all about that.


I turned around to see that it said it was 4:15 already. “Guys, I am sorry, but I have to leave. I will send you all letters, and as soon as I get my new phone in the mail, I will text you all. Now group hug.” I did feel like crying, but held it in. It was going be hard to let them go, even though I didn’t want to admit it.


“Bye, Bye!” I said to them as they waved goodbye to me. I ran to my house, hoping that I didn’t have the wrong time and was going to be late.


I had already packed all of my bags to move from my old house shelter to my new apartment in Mongolia. Grabbing the last of it, though, I checked my schedule. “Oh, no!” I am going to be late if I don’t go soon!


I ran outside only to bump into someone. “Can I help you?” There was one thing that I noticed first. He has Pink hair.


I just stopped my thoughts right there. “Yeah do you know where the Fairy Tail Highschool is?” He just looked at me and laughed. “Yeah, as a matter of a fact, I am going to ride the carts there now...” His voice went to a whisper as if talking to himself. “...even if I don’t do that well with anything that moves at all.” He sighed and continued. "Would you like to join me? I'll pay. It's nice to get to know people every once in a while, so I thought it might be nice." The boy hesitated. "But only if you want to."


I felt like he just made my day. “Why not. It sounds fun and it would be nice to know someone around the place if we ever meet up again after this. Oh- and you are?” I smiled at him with out even trying.


“I’m Natsu. Nice to meet you.” He put out his hand to shake it, which I did.


He suddenly looked surprised.“What?”


“I almost forgot to introduce my little cat, Happy. He is only as small as a kitten, but I still love the little thing.” He gestured towards a blue haired cat.


How could this get any more odd? A blue cat named Happy, and a Pink haired boy, named Natsu. Nope. Don’t think it can get any weirder. “Here. Follow me.”


He pulled me by the hand towards the cart station. I almost asked if we could ride the train, but he already offered to pay for my ride there, so I would feel bad if I asked for anything else.


When riding I remembered what he said about not doing good with riding anything moving. “Are you ok?”


He just looked at with a little bit of annoyance in his eyes. “Yeah, I am fine. Just don’t speak anymore, because otherwise I may get sick.” I laughed a bit.


Even though he is odd, he is funny. I will give him that. I also feel bad, because he has an EXTREME case of car sickness.


Finally after arriving, Natsu slugged out of the cart, with Happy trailing right behind him. They both barely got out of the cart before it just started to go again. “Now which way do we go to get to Fairy Tail?”


“This way. Here, I will show you.” He grabbed my wrist and turned around to look at Happy. “You too Happy. And even though you don’t understand me, stop giving me that goofy grin.”


I just laughed as he pulled me along. Finally after what seemed forever, we arrived at Fairy Tail High school. Wow, this building huge.It's so much bigger then I imagined.


Natsu let go of my wrist. “Let’s go inside.” He walked towards the door and entered. Happy and I followed right behind him.


“Hi, Natsu.” "Hey Dragneel.” Everyone was greeting him as if they knew him. And he would greet them back. “Nice to see you again.” “Been a while.” How does he know all these people?


It just pondered my mind till it was about the tenth person to greet him. “Hey Natsu, do you come here often? It seems like everyone knows you.”


He just stared at me blankly. “Well, yeah. I thought you would have known.”


What did he mean by that? He's acting as though it is blatantly obvious that he came here all the time. “No, I didn't’ know that. Why do you come here so often anyways? And why does everyone like you?”


He just looked at me in amusement and sighed. “I am a first year this year. Not everyone likes me, though. It’s just some of the teachers don’t really know the real me. It's kind of complicated in a since.” What? He’s a first year? Just like me!! This is amazing! Now I'll know someone at the school!


I contemplated that for a second before also realizing what he said after that. Also, what does he mean by not the real him? “I wouldn’t have known. You are tall enough to be an adult and all. And wait. Not the real you?” I had a mixture of confusion and excitement at the same time. It was different.


“Well, right now, I am just acting like a normal person. But around my friends -actually. Scratch that. During the school year I am a whole other story. I have a whole background, that if anyone knew about besides the myself, I would be a dead man by now.”


What does he mean by that? “You mind showing me some time. Maybe now perhaps?” I was curious, and curiosity always seemed to get the best of me.


Natsu laughed slightly light-hearted but at the same time with some sarcasm. After a moment of that, he then and turned to me seriously. “No. You would, one, hate me from now on, and two, be scared of me for the rest of your life. You don’t want to know the real me. Even if your life depended on it.” As soon as he stopped talking there was a moment awkward silence.


I looked at my wrist to check the time. Oh, No! “Sorry, Natsu! It was nice chatting, but I’ve got to run! See you later!” I grabbed my things and ran to where the map, that Natsu had given me, showed the main office was.


I slammed my hands swiftly onto the edge of the bottom of the office window to stop myself from flying into the office. Ouch. Shaking my hands a bit to relieve the pain, I looked diretly at the person standing in front of me. “Am I too late to sign in!?” I was hoping so much that I didn’t miss my time to sign into Fairy tail High school.


“You are just on time. Who might you be?” I gave her my I.D. “Oh, nice to meet you, Miss Heartfillia. Here is your application. Read it and sign it. Then we will put you in your classroom.” I grabbed the application.


“Thank you.” I sat down at the nearest bench outside and slowly read over it. “Must remember to bring your supplies....bla bla bla....Pay extra entrance fine within ten days of entering the school....bla bla bla. Okay.” I signed the application and ran inside.


“Here. I finished reading it.” I handed her the application.


She took it and nodded. “Wow, that was fast. You must read a lot.”


I took that as a complement. “Yeah, I do. I can be quite the bookworm.” I laughed to myself as she gave me a copy of the application.


“We will start tomorrow at nine’o'clock. Don’t be late.” I said thank you one more time before going to my new apartment building.


For the rest of the time I unpacked my things, and greeted myself to the Landlady.


Wow, she seems strict right now, but I hope we can get along better in the future. I thought as I grabbed the last box out of the moving van.


After all the packing was done, it was already twelve-thirty in the morning. “Yeahhh....” I yawned. I guess I better set an alarm for morning. It’s going to be a tiring morning if I keep unpacking more stuff.


I got in my P.J.’s and jumped in bed. I hope that tomorrow will be a good day. Can’t wait to see some of my friends again. And with that I got nice and cozy into my bed and went into a deep slumber.


After falling asleep it felt like only a few seconds went by before I heard my alarm go off. “Wha!” It surprised me so much I jumped up and fell off my bed. “Owwww....” Slowly getting back up, I rubbed my head.


At Least that should of taken all my bad luck away for the day. I laughed. Well better start getting ready.


I got myself dressed up, bags packed, and everything else ready for the day. “Looks like I am ready.” I swung my bag around my arm and walked outside, smelling the fresh air.


“I am all ready for the first day of school.” I giggled and started to walk towards what was going to be the most interesting first day back to school. The day I found out Natsu’s, the guy I just meet, true personality. That he was a rebel.
