Chapter 1


DISCLAIMER: I don't own Fairy Tail

Summary: Lucy is tired of being put aside by Team Natsu, so she goes on a solo mission to retrieve an old statue, but it's the desert a good place to spend a night? "I'm may not be able to erase the pass, but I won't ever let anyone break your future, and that's a promise master…

Chapter 1 – leaving

Mornings on the fairy tail guild were usually a little messy, you could practically smell the alcohol and the food being prepared a mile away. Fights and brawls were common and you could say it has been this way since the beginning. But in the middle of all the noise and commotion, a young mage signed for what would be the hundred time, while looking at a particularly table.

"Hey Lucy are you okay?" Mirajane said while poking the depressed mage.

Said mage looked and smile tiny smile. "yeah, don't worry Mira, I'm fine just tired" the table she was looking had her team plus Lisanna chatting like there was no tomorrow. Happy was resting on top of Natsu's head while the dragon slayer was listening to Lisanna talking about her time in Edolas. Gray was busy trying to find is pants and Erza was eating a slice of strawberry cake like it was the last in the world. To Lucy all of that was normal except the fact that she wasn't there. Since the mission to Edolas Lucy has been felling like she was just a replacement for Lisanna, every time she tried to speak to Natsu about doing a mission to help her pay rent he would say 'next time Luce, Lisanna was about to tell a story' or 'maybe tomorrow, me and happy are going fishing with Lisanna'. That was two months ago, and her rent was due to next week and her savings were low so she needed to make some money.

"Rent again?" said the bartender smiling cleaning some dishes.

"Yeah, but this time I'm out of money. I really need to do a mission."

"Why won't you ask Gray Erza or Natsu to go with you?"

"They are busy catching up with Lisanna plus Juvia would kill me if I asked Gray, Erza would say that a solo mission would help me improve my skills, and Natsu…"

"Doesn't know when enough is enough, better all of them don't know that" Mira was staring at team Natsu table with a look of pure disappointment and wrath. "Seriously I thought that maybe they just needed sometime to recall the pass with my sister but it has been two months and they still can't see that you aren't there!"

"Mira calm down, they missed Lisanna very much so it's okay, I will just do a simple solo mission, no problem, please everything is all right" Lucy tried to calm the bartender while keeping her tears from falling. 'Have you guys truly forget about me, was I just a replacement, a spare toy that you throw out when your old came back' though Lucy

"Lucy I have keep my mouth shut because you ask me to, but I'm her sister and even I know that what she is doing isn't right. She is smiling and laughing while you are sulking and smiling that fake mile of yours, don't you think that it fools me I'm not them"

Just then Lucy stop smiling and just stare at Mira with a sad face. As she was starting to speak. "Bunny girl she is right, you should let them know how selfish and stupid they were. You don't deserve to be like this" came the deep and rough voice of the iron dragon slayer, who just seat down on one of the stools. "The usual "

"Coming right up Gajel" Mira turned her back to prepare the drink.

"Even so, they just need more time, two years is a lot to be without your friends, two months are nothing compared to that…" Lucy said glassing again to the table "and they are right a solo mission will be good to practice my skills, who knows maybe I will find another key" getting up she went to the board. Gajel looked at the team Natsu and mumble "you are to good bunny girl, to good"

"Yeah she is, but why are you caring, you know being gentle isn't part of the bad boy persona. Are you getting soft Gajel" Mirajane smirked as she gave the slayer his drink

"Hmm as if. Shrimp just ask me to look for bunny girl while she was on a mission." Gajel grunted.

"so the big scary dragon has gone soft for my little friend levy, when is the wedding coming" giggled the bartender while whipping a blood drop from her nose thinking about little blue dragon babies with books on their hands.

"This is about bb-bunny girl sst-stop talking about shrimp and mm-me like that" cough Gajel while trying to hide is blush.

"But you guys are so cute I bet Th….." "Mira can you inform master that I will be going on this mission" cut Lucy handing Mira the mission paper.

Mira looked at the paper and read:

'Help is needed retrieving an old statue that got stuck on a sand storm, the person who accepts this request as to be prepared to spend at least three days on the desert alone, since that the time the journey to the statue location will take.

Payment: 250000 jewels '

"Lucy are you sure, you want to take this mission, the desert it's not a good place to spend the night plus you will be alone, maybe you should just ask for…"

"No I got this Mira, it's just a statue and if I find bandits I have my spirits to protect me and my wimp. So please just delivery my acceptance to the master I'm leaving tonight" said Lucy walking away from the guild.

"I hope you are right Lucy, I really hope so" whisper the bartender walking to her masters office.

AT LUCY'S HOUSE

Lucy was finishing her bag when she stumble on something on the floor. Picking it up she saw it was an old photo of hers and team Natsu. Letting her tears fall she whisper "good memories are just reminders that the good times are over" opening a draw she left the photo fall not even caring when it broke. Locking her door she start walking to the train station. 'Next stop silver desert'

MASTER OFICE

"What brings you here my child?" asked master while smiling warmly

"Lucy asked me to inform you that she will be leaving tonight on a mission to the silver deserts" said Mirajane giving the mission request to master.

"So Natsu's team hasn't seen the yet what is in front of their eyes I guess…"getting up and looking to his children master sighed "the felling of emptiness is as powerful as being hurt physically, my child is hurting and they don't see it"

"Master maybe it's time we make them see it. For Lucy but for them to, if they keep it up they will lose her" plead Mira. The bartender couldn't see one of her friends being left in the corner like a broken toy. Sister or not, she knew that Lisanna had full conscience of what she was doing.

"No, they must learn the price of their foolishness, they will know when Lucy wants them to know, till them no one is to say a word about this shame of a story" said Makarov walking away to his office. "I don't want to be interrupted today, please pass the word" and with that he close the door.

"As you wish master" mumble Mirajane while getting back to the bar.

TEAM NATSU'S TABLE

"Hey Natsu what are you thinking?" questioned Lisanna while hugging is left arm

"Nothing, I just had the feeling that I lost something." Mutter Natsu while looking to the guild doors 'It's like the sunshine just left, I wonder what it could be' thought Natsu

"Maybe you will remember what it was" giggle Lisanna snuggling more (if possible) to the dragon slayer chest.

"Yeah you are right"
