Action / Romance

Chapter 1

Lucy held her arm. She was able to stand back up onto her feet. She looked around; Magnolia was reduced to rubble. She started scanning for a pink haired dragon slayer.

“Natsu,” she yelled. She heard no reply. Is he dead? No, he can’t be she thought to herself. There was a thunderous roar, and she saw the dragon Acnologia. Am I the only one left? She thought.

“Natsu. Please, save me,” Lucy said aloud. Acnologia stood in front of her, lurching forwards. Before its teeth could reach her, she woke up.

“AHH,” she yelled. Lucy brought her hands to her head, breathing heavily. After a few moments passed, she was brought back to reality. She looked up and noticed she was in her apartment, the moon shining down on her bed. It was just a dream she thought to herself. She laid back down and put her arm on her forehead. Why would I be dreaming about Acnologia now? Lucy pondered on the thought all night.

When the sun rose the next morning, Lucy decided to get out of bed. She went into her bathroom and took a bath; she just laid in the tub, still wondering about what that dream meant. When she got out, she walked into her closet to find some suitable clothes. She chose a black skirt and a green spaghetti strap tank top. She also had knee-length high boots and strapped her gate keys and whip to her side. She went into her kitchen, ate breakfast, and headed to the guild.

While Lucy was walking to Fairy Tail, she got a strange feeling as if she was being pursued. She turned around, and saw no one. Man, that dream really has me paranoid she thought, laughing to herself silently. She arrived and first thing she saw was a chair flying at her face. Lucy dropped to the floor and the chair broke on the street. She looked over, and sure enough, the Ice Make wizard and Dragon Slayer were at it again.

“Maybe I wouldn’t have a problem with you if you would just put some clothes on Stripper,” Natsu yelled.

“You know Natsu, maybe a lot of people wouldn’t have such a problem with you if you weren’t so stupid,” Gray retaliated.

“You’re asking for it Ice Princess.”

“Bring it on Ash-for-brains.”

“Boys! Stop your bickering,” Erza shouted at them, an evil aura around her.

“Aye,” the boys said at the same time.

Lucy witnessed the whole thing and started laughing. Natsu turned towards her.

“Oh hey Luce. Didn’t see you there,” he said.

“Morning Natsu,” she replied. “Surprised you didn’t sneak into my house last night.”

“What? Did you miss me?”

“As if!”

They both laughed. Lucy didn’t want to say it, but she actually did miss him. Natsu always made her feel better when she had a nightmare.

“Lu,” Levy called out to her.

“Hey Levy,” Lucy said.

“How was your night?”

“Alright I guess.”

“You have bags under your eyes. Are you sure you’re okay?”

“Yes Levy. I’m just fine,” she said smiling.

“Alright, if you say so.”

Gajeel walked into the guild hall at that time and he walked over to Levy.

“Oi, Shrimp,” he said, wrapping his arm around her head.

“Hello Gajeel,” Levy replied.

Lucy walked over to the bar and greeted Mira.

“So Lucy… I heard a little rumor about you,” Mira said.

“Really? What rumor,” Lucy asked.

“That someone in this guild loves you and wants to marry you.” Lucy blushed.

“W-who do you think it is?”

“I don’t know. Could be Gray, or could be someone else. I think it could be Loke too.”

“Psh, whatever.”

“But, do you know who I think it is the most?”

“Who?”

“Natsu.”

Lucy’s eyes widened and she blushed. Her heart was racing a mile a minute and she didn’t know how to react.

“H-how do y-ou figure t-that,” Lucy stammered.

“I didn’t, until now.”

“Oh look at the time! Better get to work!”

Mira laughed and watched as the flustered Celestial Wizard made her way to the request board. Lucy sighed and thought there’s no way… he’s my best friend… nothing more, nothing less. She scanned the board looking for a job. There were jobs to catch escaped convicts, to get rid of a giant mole, and even to just move some furniture around.

PLEASE HELP!

Missing child!

He is a little boy with black hair and hazel eyes. He is 7 years old and he ran away from home. Please bring him back.

Reward: 70,000 J

This is just enough money to pay for my rent this month Lucy thought to herself.

“Hey Luce! You goin on a job,” Natsu came up to her and put his arm around her shoulders.

“Yep. I’m thinking about thi-“Lucy stopped when she realized what Natsu was doing. “Get your arm off me! It’s too hot to be putting your arm around others. Anyway, I’m going on this one. It’s weird, but I feel like I have to.”

Natsu read the flyer and said “Okay, let’s go.” He grabbed it off the board and started walking towards Mira.

“W-wait Natsu! The only reason I took this job is because this can pay for my rent exactly. There’s no extra money left over,” Lucy explained.

“It’s alright. I don’t mind. You need it don’t you?”

“W-well yeah, but you don’t get any money. Are you okay with that?”

“Of course. Why wouldn’t I be?”

Lucy blushed and smiled at Natsu. Huh, she’s really cute when she smiles… wait- what Natsu thought. He blushed and went to talk to Mira. Lucy scanned the guild and smiled even more. She was glad to have found such and amazing family.
