"Natsu! Natsu!" The blonde shouted from afar.
"Hey Luce – oof!" She tackled him with the force of a tsunami.
"I've got something exciting to tell you!"
"Uh huh… can you please get off me first? You're so fat Luce…" Natsu chuckled.
"Oh sorry… it's not my fault my best friend always goes eating every 5 minutes and takes me along." Lucy pouted, still sitting on top of the pink-haired boy.
"So, what was that exciting news you wanted to tell me?"
"We won! We get to perform!"
"Oh coo- Wait what?!"
"We won the band competition!" Lucy squealed.
"Are. You. Serious?! Have you told the rest of the band yet? They're either at basketball or boxing training."
Lucy shook her head. "I ran into you first… literally." She giggled. "Why aren't you at training? Got detention again?"
"Yep… Wait, you were at detention too!"
"Shut up…" Lucy pouted.
"(Sigh) You guys are alreadyon top of each other. Get a room." Gray shook his head in disbelief, his raven hair flying all over the place.
"What…?" Natsu blushed as Lucy tried to get off him but ended up flashing her undergarment in his face.
Gray face-palmed. "Have you guys heard? We won… If you even care…" He explained, then unconsciously stripped. The fit male’s stripping habit was a mystery to everyone and was getting out of control.
"Yep! If we win districts, we go to regionals, then states and then…"
"World famous!" They all shouted.
"What are you ladies squealing about?! You're making me deaf!" Gajeel whined.
Jellal followed behind twirling a pen.
"Why do you always twirl a long object in your hand Jellal?" Gray asked.
"That's what she said!" Lucy and Natsu laughed in unison. They first-bumped.
"You two are so immature." Jellal shook his head as he unconsciously ran his hand through his azure hair while touching the red tattoo around his right eye.
"The FT Delinquents please go to the principal's office. I repeat, The FT Delinquents to the principal's office. Thankyou." The sweet voice of Mirajane announced into the speakers.
"Oh fuck… What did we do wrong now?" Gajeel groaned, his spikey black hair sagging down along with his shoulders.
"Well, we arethe delinquents in this school…" Lucy shrugged. "Let's get going before gramps has a heart attack."
They nodded and walked to Principle Makarov Dreyar's office. Once they had arrived, everyone looked at Lucy to knock on the door.
"Of course the girl has to knock on the door, just because girls don't get in trouble. You guys are so sexist."
"No, we are the sexiest." Natsu sniggered.
The blonde knocked on the wooden door and jumped out of her skin as someone answered it immediately.
"Crap Mira! You nearly made me pee my pants!"
"Come in. All of you. Now." The white-haired beauty demanded.
They group looked at each other and gulped. Jellal just continued twirling the pen in his hand. He didn't really care. He had spoken to Makarov earlier so he knew what he was in for.
"Yo gramps." Jellal greeted calmly.
"Hello Jellal. Everybody, please sit down."
They all sat stiffly, a little scared at his serious tone.
"Yes Lucy dear?"
"I know we're always in trouble but, are we in bigtrouble? Like big, big trouble?" She asked nervously.
"No my little brats. But you will be if you don't obey what I'm going to tell you."
They all sighed in relief.
"Just shut up and listen because gramps is gonna make me the boss." Jellal smirked.
"Jellal! (Sigh) I wanted to tell them!" Makarov complained, his childish side getting the better of him (even though he looked at least 100).
"Wait… Boss for what exactly?" Lucy inquired.
"For your band of course! You need someoneto manage and keep you juvenile kids in check." Makarov explained.
They all groaned.
"Why gramps?" Natsu pouted.
"You guys realise that this doesn't change anything right? Jellal may be responsible, but he's cool. We just gotta be ourselves and do what we normally do." Gray chuckled.
"So when's districts?" Gajeel asked.
"Next week." Jellal replied.
"Seriously?! We can't learn 2 whole new songs by next week!" Lucy exclaimed.
"When are we playing?"
"You guys are last… and there are 20 schools competing in our region. The top 6 go to regionals."
"Last?! The judges are going to be tired and bored!" Lucy complained.
"That's why we got to blow them away."
"Ok. Listen up brats. We haven't won in 7 years so we would loveit if you could just beat Sabertooth Academy. That is all. You are dismissed. Mira! Escort them out please." Makarov sat back down.
"Yes Master." The receptionist bowed and gestured for the group to walk out the door.
"This is going to be a long week…" They all sighed.
