Lucy had to get up several times in the middle of the night because of her nausea. Each time, Natsu would hold her hair up and give her a drink of water after before holding her. By the time the sun rose, the two wizards were exhausted. Not only that, but they had to fill the rest of Team Natsu in on their plan to announce the pregnancy to the guild. Lucy started to get up, but Natsu pulled her back down.
“Luce, do we really have to get out of bed,” he asked, wrapping his arm around her waist.
“Yeah. If we don’t take care of this, who knows who long it’ll keep going,” Lucy said, a hint of sadness in her voice.
“Hey, everything’s going to be okay.” Natsu kissed her shoulder before kissing the flame mark on her neck.
“Yeah, I know.”
She stood up and went to the bathroom to wash her face and brush her teeth. Before she walked out of the bathroom, she tugged at the clothes she had on. Lucy grabbed one of her keys that she had left on the counter in the bathroom.
“Open, Gate of the Maiden! Virgo!”
“Punishment Princess,” Virgo asked, bowing before her Master.
“What is with you? No, can you get me some clothes?”
Virgo summoned up a blue and white outfit similar to the one she wore when they defeated Master Hates on Tenrou Island.
“Of course Princess. Summon me if you need anything else.” Virgo disappeared back to the Spirit World. Lucy got changed and walked out of the bathroom, only to find Natsu had fallen back asleep. She grabbed one of the pillows and started hitting him repeatedly. He grabbed the pillow she had and turned to her.
“Hit me one more time and I’m going to blow.”
“Well it’s time for you to get up. We have to go to the guild.”
Natsu sat straight up and sniffed the air. Another scent was coming, and he knew who it was.
“Lucy, you need to hide. Don’t come back out until I tell you to.”
“N-Natsu, what’s going on?”
She runs into Natsu’s closet and closes the door. She puts several articles of clothing in front of her and waits patiently.
Natsu walks into the living room after hearing a knock on the door. He opens it to find a “beat up” Lisanna.
“Natsu! Thank God you’re home! It’s Lucy, she’s a monster,” Lisanna says hysterically. “I went to go check on her at her apartment to see if she was okay after the bathroom incident and she went crazy! She told me to stay away from you and Happy and she beat me up! Please Natsu, you have to do something about her!”
Natsu was furious. Not only was Lucy with him this entire time, but she’s also too nice to do something like that to someone! Lisanna tried to kiss him, but he pushed her back.
“Lisanna, I’ve told you time and time again that I don’t like you that way. We’re friends,” he said gently, trying not to spit out his words. Lisanna pouted.
“Come on Natsu. Don’t you remember when I acted like your wife when we were kids? Don’t you want that now?”
“That was in the past. You were the one who always talked about actually getting married and having real kids when I wanted no part of that.” Lisanna grew furious. “I’d really appreciate it if you would leave now Lisanna. I’ll see you at the guild.” Natsu closes the door and waits until she’s gone. He walks back into his bedroom and says, “Ok Lucy, you can come out now.”
Lucy opens the door to the closet and falls out. Natsu laughs at her before helping her up.
“You really need to clean up that closet,” she said, rubbing her head. He continues laughing until she asks, “Who was that?”
“It was Lisanna. She was trying to pin a lie about how you beat her up. I’d imagine she’s going to the guild now to tell everyone.”
All the color that was in Lucy’s face drained. Natsu could sense her fear and he puts his hands on her shoulders.
“Lucy. Calm down, you can’t have an anxiety attack now. Erza, Gray, Wendy, Carla, and Happy are all already at the guild. They won’t let Lisanna’s lies spread.” Lucy calmed down, but she was still shaking. Natsu got dressed and he led Lucy to the guild.
Lisanna just busted through the doors of the guild. Everyone turned their heads and their eyes grew wide.
“Please! Help me! She’s going crazy,” Lisanna screamed. Mira ran up to her and brought her into a hug.
“Who’s going crazy,” Mira asked seriously. She didn’t like seeing her little sister so beat up.
“It’s Lucy! I went to her apartment to see if she was okay and she went berserk on me! She told me to leave Fairy Tail or else!”
Everyone was shocked at what they heard. Erza, Wendy, Gray, Carla, and Happy all stared at Lisanna in disgust. How could she make up that bad of a lie about Lucy Gray thought to himself, clenching his fists. He could feel the entire guild’s anger.
“SHE’S GOING TO PAY FOR THIS,” they all yelled. Gajeel, Levy, and Laxus were the only ones who were suspicious about the lie. At that moment, Natsu and Lucy had walked in the doors. Cana threw her cards at Lucy, but Natsu managed to push her out of the way in time. At that moment, Team Natsu stood in front of her.
“What the hell,” Natsu yelled. He stood up and pulled Lucy with him. He put her behind him, standing protectively in front of her.
WOULD YOU DEFEND LUCY AFTER WHAT SHE DID TO LITTLE SIS,” Elfman yelled as he
launched himself at the young Celestial Wizard. Gray punched him out of the way
before he could get very close. At that moment, Gajeel, Levy, and Laxus stood
in front of Lucy as well. Lisanna was surprised.
“You guys believe that bimbo over me?!?”
“CAN IT LISANNA,” Erza yelled. “We know you’re lying. We also know that it was YOU who attacked Lucy.”
“No it wasn’t! How could you think that?!?”
Carla and I saw it! We all went to Lucy’s apartment and she told us what
happened,” Wendy yelled.
“That’s how she got those scratches on her cheek! Lisanna transformed her arm into a bird’s wing so she could have talons,” Gray shouted.
“She’s lying to all of you! She told me to stay away from Natsu and Happy so that she could have them for herself,” Lisanna yelled back. Mirajane stepped away from her little sister.
“Y-you said that she told you to get out of Fairy Tail,” Mira said, puzzled.
“Geez Lisanna, you really need to get your lies straight,” Natsu added. “Not only that, but Lucy was with me the entire time from that bathroom stunt yesterday! I never left her side!”
The entire guild was confused. Who would they believe? Lisanna, or Lucy? Mira took a step back from her sister before joining the others in protecting Lucy.
“Big sis… now you’re betraying me,” Lisanna said, shocked.
“No Lisanna. You’re the one who betrayed Fairy Tail. You tried to get us all to believe that Lucy beat you in cold blood, when in reality, you were the one who beat her,” Mira said, a few tears leaking out of her eyes. Elfman stood next to his older sister, and that’s what did it for the guild. They all walked over to Lucy’s side. At that moment, the Master walked in.
“What is going on here,” he asked, perplexed.
“Master! Everyone’s going crazy! They think I beat up Lucy when she’s the one who beat up me,” Lisanna said, collapsing to her knees in a fit of sobs.
“Lisanna, stop the act,” Lucy said. “Everyone knows your lying. Just give… it up.” Lucy started to cry as well.
“Alright my children, I want the two girls in question to step forward,” the Master said heaving a sad sigh; he knew he was going to have to kick one of the two out. Natsu walked Lucy up to Makarov and Lisanna walked by herself. Everyone else had sat at a table and let their guard down, all except Natsu. Lisanna took advantage of the moment and tackled Lucy to the ground, strangling her. Natsu ran up to the girls and pulled the silver haired girl off of his mate. Lucy has already lost consciousness and Natsu stood protectively over her. Mira and Elfman were holding back their sister, who had screamed, “PAYBACK’S A BITCH! YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE ATTACKED ME!”
“You’re still trying to feed us that bullshit Lisanna,” Natsu said, his rage increasing. Wendy ran over to Lucy, healing her. Lucy woke up and saw Lisanna fighting her brother and sister to get to her. Her eyes started filling with tears and she sat on the ground, her hands on her eyes. Wendy helped her to stand up and she faced Makarov. Mira and Elfman had let go of Lisanna, but they stood by her, ready to pounce if need be. She had turned to the Master as well. Natsu stood right beside Lucy.
“Alright girls, I need each of you to tell me your side of the story,” he said. Lisanna told him his entire side of the story and he asked if she had any witnesses; she said no. Lucy also told him her side of the situation, and he asked if she had any witnesses; she said yes and Natsu, Wendy, and Carla stepped forward, telling him what they had saw. Makarov sighed and turned to Lisanna.
“Lisanna, you have betrayed Fairy Tail by hurting one of your nakama and trying to get everyone else to turn on her. I’m afraid you are hereby expelled from Fairy Tail.”
Everyone saw Lisanna’s guild mark disappear from her leg. They all looked away in sadness and started to cry. Levy was crying on Gajeel’s shoulder, Mira cried on Laxus’s, Wendy cried on Romeo’s, Juvia cried on Gray’s, and Lucy cried on Natsu’s. They all watched Lisanna walk out of the guild, never to return.
“Hey, it was for the best,” Laxus told Mira. She nodded her head, but couldn’t stop crying. She never would have thought that her baby sister could have been so violent. They all went home that day with sadness in their hearts.
