In Memories We Trust

Action / Fantasy

Unknown Feelings

"That Natsu blew me off today" Lucy ranted as she sat at her favorite seat at the counter of the guild.

"Don't worry Lucy he still likes you even though he can't be here right now" Mira assured her from behind the counter as she gave Lucy what she usually eats.

"Thanks Mira you are a good friend" Lucy said as she took a bit of her food. "But come on he was so excited yesterday to go on a job for today so I went and picked out a job for us to go on but then I asked to go a job with him today he said he had something to do."

"He probably has his reasons, he might have gotten a hint to where Igneel might be" Mira pointed out.

"Oh yeah he has been looking for him for 7 years now huh? Well its 14 now if you count the 7 year time gap we were in." Lucy sighed. "I could understand if he might have found Igneel but he didn't even tell me where he was going."

"Hmm… that is strange usually he can't wait to tell everyone where he is going especially if it involves Igneel because he wants to prove to everyone that he is real." Mira said.

"Yeah I just hope he is back to normal soon. But I guess with what we have been through he probably wants some time to himself without anyone finding him" Lucy said with a sigh. Just then Natsu came running through the door of the guild and looked around. He spotted Lucy and ran over to her.

"Hey Lucy could come with me for a minute?" He asked.

"Why? Where are we going?" Lucy asked as Natsu grabbed her hand and pulled her out of the Guild.

"It's a surprise just for you Lucy" Natsu explained as they ran down the street. They went to the east forest and he took her to the river to look out over the water.

"Ok Natsu why did you bring here and in such a rush?" Lucy panted when she finally caught up to him. Then she noticed a picnic dinner lying on a blanket next to Natsu.

"Natsu what are you planning? Is this for us?" Lucy asked with a suspicious glint in her eye as she looked at the picnic. Natsu would never be able to make something this nice Lucy thought.

"Come on Lucy come and sit down" Natsu said breaking Lucy out of her thoughts.

"Natsu did you make all this yourself?" Lucy asked looking at the food.

"Yep, it took me all night to get it right" Natsu said taking a bite of the food; I hope she likes it he thought.

"This is so good Natsu" Lucy told him with a big grin on her face. But why did he do it he still hasn't answered my question.

"Lucy the reason that I made all of this for us is…" Natsu started but trailed off as he looked into her eyes and felt his heart beat faster and his checks go a little red. He finally knew why Lucy was so dear to him and he wanted to tell her but he couldn't do it so far. "The reason is-is b-because…" Why can't I just say it already Natsu thought angrily.

"Because?" Lucy said looking at him kind of worried.

"IT'S BECAUSE LUCY I LOVE YOU!" Natsu yelled finally, he got up and ran off to his house where Happy was waiting for him. That's it I said it I finally told her and now I ran away why did I run? I have never run away like this before she probably is very confused now because of me. But her reaction was so beautiful Natsu's cheeks went a deep red at the memory of her startled face 30 seconds after he confessed to her. He reached his house and Happy bombarded him with questions.

"Did you do it Natsu? What did she do? What did you do?" Happy said in a fray

"Well Happy a lot of things happened" Natsu started and Happy settled down to listen.

Back with Lucy, Lucy watched as Natsu ran away she had caught a glance of his face and he was blushing, she was blushing also, she was ready for him to say anything to her except for that. "Jeez what am I going to do with him?" she said laughing to herself. But did she really like him back? That was one question that she could not answer herself. She went home that day to try and get her feelings and thoughts straight because of what happened that afternoon. She decided to call up Pluu and talk to him while taking a hot bath. She also writes a letter to her mom recapping what happened that day.

Dear Mama,

I thought Natsu was blowing me off on a job and then he comes running into the guild and takes me into the east forest where a picnic dinner is waiting that he made himself! He then gets all embarrassed and tells me that he loves me but I am not sure that I love him back because I like some other guy at my guild but maybe I do? I just wish I could figure it out but I guess it will turn out for the best in the end right mama?

Love, Lucy

P.S. Don't tell dad this he did like the fact that I would like boys one day.

Lucy put down her quill and sighed leaned back in her chair and looked up at the ceiling how am I going to face Natsu tomorrow? I know he is going to want an answer to his confession but I have never really been confessed to like that before and I don't know what to do. Lucy was tired so she got up and went to bed she would sort it out in the morning.

Now back to Natsu. He finished telling Happy what had happened with Lucy and he thought that he should have waited for her to give him an answer before running off like he did. "But Happy I was afraid that she was going to reject me right then and there she looked like she was going to cry for a second then she just looked frightened. And I did not mean to scare her I guess I am just not good enough for her and if she rejects me then I will take it without any hard feelings I mean it was out of the blue right Happy?"

"Aye but Natsu are you going to ask for an answer tomorrow?" Happy asked looking very sad for Natsu.

"No, I thought she was going to turn me down anyway but I still wanted to tell her how I feel about her. I will have no hard feelings if she tells she doesn't feel the same…" Natsu said defeated. "Oh Happy who am I kidding Happy she is the first one that I loved since Lisanna, I just know Lucy is going to reject me." Natsu said to Happy.

"Don't worry Natsu it's not like she is getting a boyfriend or anything, she is still single so you still have a chance although you probably cut your chances of getting Lucy by more than half and if you ask me you are now below Gray on the 'People Lucy would date' list." Happy told Natsu trying but failing of course to cheer him up somewhat.

"Happy you were supposed to make me feel better but it did not and I will DEFENTLY not lose to that perverted stripper!" Natsu yelled to Happy. "No one can have Lucy but me she is just as important as finding Igneel to me."
