Natsu and I were walking back from the beach. “It was pretty enjoyable, right?” I ask. “Yeah. I guess.” He replied. “You guess? You had a weird look on your face when we were dancing.” I respond. “Oh, be quiet.” He said as he turned away from me. I kind of chuckled a little. To think that this man could be killer. I highly think that’s unlikely. “By the way, Natsu? Do you’ve a place to live now?”
He turns to me. “Not sure. I’m staying at Gray’s place, and he doesn’t get out of the hospital until tomorrow.” he answered. “Well then, how you can visit my place?” I told him. “Are you sure? It’s kind of strange to have someone you barely met enter inside your place.” He felt uncomfortable about it. “I don’t consider as stranger after all we’re friends aren’t we?” Natsu didn’t even know what think right now. But, I follow him to my place anyway.
I open the front door and showed him in. “Wow, it a little small.” He states. “I know, but at 70,000 jewel a month, it pretty decent.” I went to on the light switch. Natsu went back at down in the chair. “Did you ever invite anyone here?” he responded. “Actually, no.’ I replied. I went to fridge and brought two cans of soda to him. “In fact, you’re the first time here.” I handed him one. “Thank you.” He opens the soda and drank from it.
“So, what kind of things do you like?” I ask as I sat down. “Well, nothing much expected living and working.” He slightly chuckled. “But, I’ve remember watching the stars in the night sky. My father always believes that they were twinkles that you could touch. We see them at night where there are no lights.” He had on a smile. “Wow, your father must have been something.” I said. “He was. He taught me everything to speak, write, and even magic.”
He sighed. “I miss him.” I look at his face and I can already he was depressed. I went over and touch his hand. “You’ll see him again.” I stated. He looks at me. “Have Faith. That’s when my mother always said.” I started to caress his hand. “L-Lucy, you wind if I stay here with for tonight?” I back slightly away. “Eh? Are you sure about this?” I ask. He nods. “I won’t mind. Bedsides, Gray’s place was a little cold.”
Now, I start to get nervous. Having someone staying over, that’s new to me. But, I calm myself. Let me get you the air up bed.” I replied. I went to my closet and grab it. Natsu was going to spend the night here with me.
I was beginning to leave the guild when I saw Mira putting the silverware. “Mira.” I said. “Laxus, what’s going on?” she asks. “Would you like to come with me right now?” I responded to her. “To where?” she wonders.
After the guild was close up for the night, Mira and I were walking in the forest. I haven talk to Mira in a long while. I’ve been so with grandfather and the Thunder Tribe. In addition, many of the girls are asking to big festival were having in Magnolia. I didn’t want to tell her this but I’ve crush on her.
“So, what’s it you want to talk about?” she asks me. I stop and tur around to her. “Mira, I was wondering if you’ve any plans for the festival coming up.” I look up at the sky to avoid any contact. “Well, I’ve nothing to do on that day, why?” She looks at me. “Well, I was hoping that you would like to go out with me.” She then smiled. “I would love to Laxus.” She said. I was surprised. “Really? You mean it?” I ask. She nods. I became excited.
Then, I sense from coming our way. I push Mira down and use my lightning attack to stop it. “Are you okay, Mira?” I ask. “You push me.” she said. “Sorry. But, we’ve company.” I look up and saw a man carrying black scythe. He was standing on the tree. “You were able to block my attack. Amusing.” he said. “Who the hell are you.” I said angrily. “I’ve no business of telling you who I am.” He jumps from the tree and attacks us. We quickly move out of the way just to block it. “Take the enemy. And bring the target that is my mission.” He stated.
“Target?” said Mira. What the hell is he talking about? “Mira, go warn the others. I ‘ll take of this guy.” She stands up. “No. I’m going to fight.” She quickly went into Satan Soul Form. “No threatens our comrades and gets away with it.” she stated. The scythe charges at us and we charged at him. He tries to slices me. But, I use my flash of lightning, to dodge and attack from behind. “Lightning Dragon Roar!!” I breathe out my roar, making it mark.
He drops the weapon which gave Mira the opportunity to land a blow to the gut. “Evil Explosion!!”</I> Mira blew the blast through his heart. However, he disappears. “He’s gone?!” she was surprised. Then, he came from behind with his scythe back in his hand and attacks her. She swirls around and caught with her bare hands. This gave a chance to strike. I look at my target and trying to avoid Mira from getting caught in it. “Raging Bolt!!!”</I> The lightning was heading toward him. However, he disappears again. The bolt struck Mira, and she was down and out.
Then, I felt the man behind me. I turn around only to be attack by him. I was feeling sick. Whatever kind of magic this is, it’s draining mine. I fall to the ground, unable to stand. The man chuckled. “Don’t worry, I’ve got some plans for you two.” He said. Then, he use fire magic to torch the forest down, and leaving us to die.
I was on the air up and dozing off to sleep. It was nice that I stay with Lucy for the night. But, it still bug me. Why am I attracted to this woman? I know we just met but I feel want to stay with her. And be around her. When we danced, I felt a happiness inside of my heart. Could I really be falling for her?
Then, I smell something coming from the east side of the town. I quickly woke up and I looked out the window and I saw fire and it was coming in fast. I didn’t want to wake Lucy, so I quietly got up and rush out of her place. I ran to the forest. That’s when I saw, Erza and Jellal coming my way. “Natsu.” She responds. “You saw the fire as well.” I gave her a nod. “Of course.” I answered. “But, I smell something. Somebody is in that fire.” I sniff the scent with my nose. “Three people. I know the two. It’s Laxus and Mira.”
Erza was in shock. “What?!” She looked at the fire. “I can stop the fire while you two head them.” I responded. “Are you sure you’ll be okay?” said Jellal. “Rest assured, I’ll be fine.” The three of us quickly head to the fire to save our comrades.
