Sting's Idea

It’s been 1 month since the Grand Magic Games finished with Fairy Tail as the winner, and there’s also the Eclipse incident. Lots of events happened, also Fairy Tail and Sabertooth are on good terms. And now, it’s peaceful again…..but too peaceful here at Sabertooth. As the new Master of the guild, I, Sting Eucliffe, don’t know what to do. I want our guild to improve, to become lively, fun, and I want to experience how to treasure my ‘nakama’, just like Fairy Tail. I smile when I had an idea.

That’s it!

‘I’ll just observe Fairy Tail on their guild.’ I thought to myself.

I stand up on my chair and went to the table where the Lacrima Communication is. I chant a spell, and after 15 seconds of waiting, there at the Lacrima, shows a face of an old man, Macarov Dreyar, the Master of Fairy Tail.

“Oh! Sting Eucliffe, what can I do for the new Master of Sabertooth?” Macarov-san ask with a smile on his face.

“Uh, Master Macarov! I want to ask for a favor to the whole Fairy Tail.” I said shyly to him.

“Hoh?! And what is it my child?” Macarov-san asked.

“Well, as you know, I am the new master of our guild, Sabertooth.” Macarov-san nods while I continue to talk, “And I don’t know how to manage a guild and I wanted to change our system, so I was thinking if I can visit your guild with some members of Sabertooth, to observe how Fairy Tail is, since Fairy Tail is the most fun guild here in Fiore, and knows how to treasure their comrade.” I finished and waits for Master Macarov to respond.

“Well, why not? I’m very happy to hear that you love our guild, even though we always have complaints from the Magic Council. Hahaha!!” He laughs. “Well, you’re welcome to come here.” Macarov-san said it with a wide grin on his face.

My face brightens up when, I heard his responds and I can’t help to grin, “Really? Thank you very much Macarov-san!”

“Anytime Sting-kun, so when will you head here?”

“Is it alright if we can go tomorrow?”

“Alright, I will inform the whole guild on your arrival then.”

“Yes Sir! Thank you very much!” I bow my head as the man slowly disappear on the Lacrima.

‘Awesome! It’s good that my idea is fine with Fairy Tail. Now, I need people to accompany me to Fairy Tail.’ I thought while thinking for people who can come with me. I snap my finger, ‘I know just the right people.’

I put down the Lacrima and head out to my office and walk towards where the guild members is.


*Rogue*

I was sitting on one of the chairs on the guild, while watching Frosch and Lector eating their fish on the table, when suddenly Sting shouts from the 2nd floor of the guild. Since, I have a very sensitive hearing due to my magic it really hurts my ears.

“Listen up guys! I have an announcement to make!” This gets the whole guild’s attention.

“As you all know, I’m the new Master of Sabertooth.” Everybody nods “And as you all know too, that I don’t even have a clue on being a master of a guild. As the new master, I, want to change a lots of things here at Sabertooth. I don’t like how Master Jiemma rules us and punish us, whenever we lost or destroy the reputation of the guild. I want this guild to be free and fun, and treasure our comrades.”

I was amazed on what Sting just said just now, changing our guild and thinks for our ‘nakama’. I continued to listen to Sting since I know he still something to say. “…So I have an idea, I will observe Fairy Tail for at least a week, and I will be accompanied by Rogue, Yukino, Lector, and Frosch.” ‘What?!’ “And I assigned Rufus to be in charge for the guild, when there is concerns, you can approach him and Rufus if you don’t know what to do you can contact me.” Sting continued.

After his speech, he asked me, Yukino, Rufus and Orga to go to his office, and immediately we went to his room.


-At the 2nd floor-

On the 2nd floor, Sting was waiting for us on his door. He opens it and went inside, we followed him and then he sits on his chair, while we stands in front of him.

“Sting, regarding on your idea on this trip to Fairy Tail, do they know this?” I asked my best friend with a straight expression.

“I just talked with their Master before I made the announcement, and he said that it’s alright for us to observe.” Sting replied with a big smile.

“Um, Sting-sama I got the idea that you will pick Rogue-sama, Lector-sama and Frosch-sama, but why me also?” Yukino asked at Sting.

“Well out of people here, you, Yukino, were close at Fairy Tail and I’m sure that you wanted to see them too, right?” Sting said with a small smile now.

“Yes, I wanted to see them especially, Lucy-sama and Mira-sama. Thank you very much, Sting-sama.” Yukino bowed at Sting.

“It’s nothing Yukino, and stop bowing at me. You don’t need to be so formal to me.” Sting waved both his hand.

“Sting” we look to the person who called Sting, it was Rufus, “Is it alright that you made me, the stand in Master while you are gone?” he continued.

“Of course Rufus, I know you’re a responsible person, and I trust you.” Sting replied and Rufus gave a nod, “And Orga you can help Rufus on handling the guild, if it’s alright.” Sting add on.

“Sure Sting, don’t worry about us and focus on improving our guild, Rufus and I can handle here. Well if not, we’ll just contact you.” Orga replied and gave a thumbs up on Sting.

“Thanks guys, I know I count on you.” Sting gave a very big smile on us.

“It is for the sake of our guild, so it’s not a bad idea,” I said with a small smile on my face. “So when will we go to Fairy Tail?” I add on.

“Tomorrow morning. The earlier, the better.” Sting immediately replied.

I nodded as a respond. “Got it! Well Yukino we better pack our stuffs, so we can leave tomorrow early.” I looked at Yukino then at Sting, “Sting. Frosch, Lector and I will head to our apartment to pack our stuffs, as the Master of the guild you should stay, we’ll take care for our luggage.” Sting nod and the 4 of us leave the room. I called Frosch and Lector and told them, that we’ll head back to pack our stuffs. The 3 of us plus Yukino exited the guild and went to our respected houses to pack our stuffs.

‘This will be a great time to start fresh on our guild. I have to do my best to contribute in improving our guild,’ I thought, as we walk towards our apartment.


-Meanwhile at Fairy Tail-

*Lucy*

Another day here at Fairy Tail, and it’s still the same as ever. Party and then suddenly Natsu and Gray will fight, then the whole guild will join. Elfman will shout something regards of being a ‘man’, Cana will drink a barrel of beer, Natsu will accidentally bump to Erza, while she’s eating her favorite strawberry cheesecake, and destroys it which lead to Erza joining the fight. Nothing seems to change, it’s kind of fun, but at the same time boring since, there’s no exciting going on. ‘Well it’s more Fairy Tail like when it’s noisy rather than quiet,’ I thought to myself. I was watching everyone here at the bar, with Mira, Wendy, Levy-chan and Lisanna who prefers to watch everyone rather than joins them.

“Everyone sure loves to fight. Haha!” I told to my other 4 companions.

“Everyone sure doesn’t get tired on that,” Wendy replied while a single sweat on her forehead.

“Well, it wouldn’t be Fairy Tail, if we don’t have one at least a day,” Mira replied, while wiping one of the goblets. All of us nod and burst on laughter. Then suddenly Master came out from the 2nd floor, and stands on the rails.

“YOU BRATS, I HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT TO MAKE!” Master shouted from the 2nd floor, and everyone stops on what they were doing. We all look at him.

“*cough* Now, tomorrow we will be having guests from Sabertooth, their new Master, Sting Eucliffe, and some of his guild members,” announced by Master. 

Some of the guild were whispering on what Master said, then Erza asked what they will be doing here. Master replied, “Well as you all know, that after Sting-kun defeat their previous master, Jiemma, he automatically became their next Master. Sting-kun, talked to me awhile ago, asking for a favor to observe our guild to improve theirs.” Everyone was surprised. “I give him the permission, and we should be glad that of all the guilds he could ask of, our guild, Fairy Tail, were he picked to observe, that is why you should welcome them tomorrow with open arms, and be sure to act as the same. We’ll show them our way!” Everyone suddenly cheered and shouts.

“Heh~ Now that’s new,” Levy-chan said.

“My, it will sure be going to be livelier tomorrow.” Lisanna said while grinning.

“Who do you think will accompany their Master?” Mira asked, while tilting her head on the side and puts his right index finger on her chin.

“I hope they would be easier to talk to. It’s nice to have new friends, right Lucy-san?” Wendy looks at me.

“You’re right Wendy, I hope that we get along with them too,” I replied to her with a smile.

‘I really hope too, and I hope new excitement too.’ I thought to myself.
