It was hard to tell; love was an interesting subject but of course, it was a very sly creature as well. No one knew exactly when they came to love each other, it just seemed like the adoration for each other was always there, always present. It always fascinated Mira to watch all of her guild mates interact with each other; what expressions did they make towards one another, how do they react when they see another member? It brought joy into Mira's life from behind the bar she stood at each day and, naturally, watching each and every member with a keen eye, she saw the little things that others missed. How Juvia truly cared for Gray and wasn't just infatuated with the dark haired ice mage, and how Gray had begun to accept Juvia's antics rather than push her away because he too understood her. Or how Levy could break through Gajeel's rough exterior and make him gaze at her with the softest of gazes that only she ever received. Then, there was Natsu and Lucy; Mira loved watching them the most because there was so much there that everyone but them realized. How Natsu would specifically choose requests that he thinks Lucy would like or ones that can pay her rent for months, how he worries about her if she seems sad or if she's sick and can't go with him and Happy somewhere. Then there's Lucy he concerns herself with making sure that Natsu isn't too reckless, how she makes sure she goes with Natsu and Happy so they don't get lost or hurt, or how she comforts his motion sickness when they need to take the train. They smile at each other with such adulation, they would protect each other to the ends of the earth yet, they don't realize what they have for each other. Mira though each member had something special to them and to Natsu and Lucy, it was each other. Spending each day behind the bar of her beloved guild, Mira was happy, enjoying each unspoken moment, each interaction that made every individual special. After all that they had been through, to some these exchanges may seem minuscule but Mira thought they were monumental. Love will conquer all, love can open doors that will never need to be closed, love is what holds Fairy Tail together, and it was absolutely amazing. Each day they all took a new step in a direction leading them to a new life that would change them and bring a new era to the guild. Mira decided, it could not get much more beautiful than that.
