Adventure / Romance

Chapter 1: Layla and Lucy

Hey guys, I had a dream about a part of this and it was REALLY fun and kinda romantic, so I built a story off of it and I hope you like it!

Normal POV

Jude Heartfilia dragged his wife, Layla, who was still in her nightgown, with a bag over her head and her wrists tied, away from the five story estate and into the forest. Once he reached the forest, he traveled into a secluded area near a small lake and, thinking they were alone, threw off the bag covering her bloodied face and pulled out a syringe full of glowing, green liquid. Little did he know, there was a small, pink haired boy hiding in the bushes.

"Layla, I've had enough of you're crap! I'm putting an end to it, once and for all!" The man said, a vicious sneer on his face. "You don't care that I hide my beatings from Lucy or that I don't give her any! You just keep being the annoying b**** you are! Well, I've had enough!" He held up the syringe. "This is full of deadly poison that will give you a slow agonising death! Maybe when you're paralysed, you'll think about your actions!" He shouted, shoving the syringe in her neck and shoving the contents in, then throwing the syringe into the lake, and walking away, as the woman fainted.

The little boy surged forward to the woman laying there, not moving due to much pain.

"Are you okay?" He asked, very worried for the woman. He knew she was most certainly not, it was just common courtesy to ask. That's what Igneel taught him at least.

She slowly shook her head, her brown eyes filled with pain and fear, her blonde hair flowing down her beaten face. "Please... stay with... my daughter... save her... from her...father." she whispered so faintly that he only heard it because if his Dragon Slayer ears.

"I will. I promise." He knew he could just follow either Jude's or Layla's scent back to her daughter and their house.

" Wait... give her this." she said with pain, and held out a ring with two keys on it. Two golden zodiac key with the symbol Aquarius and Cancer on them. And then she suddenly turned stiff. She was paralyzed. The boy stayed with her until her eyes went blank and her last breath was breathed.

"I will always protect your daughter. I will never see her harmed easily. You may rest in peace knowing I will always be there with her." The pink haired boy said, tucking the keys into a safe place n

Timeskip~ morning time

A young girl woke up to the sun peak in above the mountains nearby. She smiled. Today was Tuesday. On Tuesday, she would abandon her studies with her mother to go to the market and socialize.

She ran downstairs without a second thought, where her mom always waited for her at the dining room table. Instead of seeing her mom, she saw a pink haired, black eyed boy in front of the table.

"May I help you?" Lucy asked.

"Uh, I don't know. Who are you?" He asked nervously.

"Oh, so rude of me. I am Lucy Heartfilia, daughter of Layla and Jude Heartfilia." She thought he saw recognition in his eyes, but it was gone so fast she thought she'd imagined it. "Who are you?" She asked, standing in front of the table and starting at him.

"I am Natsu Dragneel!" He exclaimed proudly.

"Well, Natsu Dragneel, as I asked before, may I help you?" Lucy asked politely.

"Uh, not right now, a Mrs. Spetto came and got me all... helped up?" He asked, suddenly confused as to how to say that.

"Oh, so Mrs. Spetto helped you? Yeah, she's nice like that. I really like her. " Lucy smiled. They were chatting away while Jude was walking down the stairs, smiling to himself thinking 'She's gone! She's finally out of my life! You did it Jude!'

So when he was at the table, he cleared his throat and said. "Lucy, I am very sorry, but your mother died yesterday."

Lucy stopped in the middle of her sentence and looked at her father, shocked and appalled. "H-h-how?" She cried.

"Well, she got very very very VERY sick yesterday and the doctor didn't make it in time to save her. People are coming later on too help build a grave for her." He pretended to choke up.

'Liar', Natsu thought, 'I know the truth and one day I WILL expose you!' Natsu rubbed the keys the mother wanted to give her daughter.

So, how was it? Sorry, I had to do that. Nali fans kept saying "well Lisanna and Natsu are childhood friends." So I made Natsu and Lucy childhood friends. Nothing against Lisanna or NaLi, just I think NaLu is better. Tell me how it was through a review, and I will try to update again today!
