Natsu plopped down on his bed tired from a day full of unpacking; it had just occurred to him that halfway through the day happy had mysteriously disappeared. "Damn cat," Natsu muttered, "I'll show him." Natsu got up from his bed deciding to go find his friend, but while running out the door he ran into someone. "Oh, sorry." Natsu apologized helping the girl up.
"No, it's my fault I wasn't looking where I was going." She replied reaching down to get her bag. "Well I better get going."
"Oh, yeah. Bye." He said waving. 'Well that was embarrassing.' Natsu thought walking away when he tripped. "What the-" he said looking for what had tripped him; a book? "It must be hers," he said looking at her door "I guess I should go return it before-"
"Happy?!" He yelled before being tackled to the ground. "I went out for a stroll and I got lost! I was so scared!" He yelled tears running down his face.
"Well your home now…hey! I know what will cheer you up!" he yelled running back into the apartment. A few minutes later he came back holding what looked to be fishing rods (really just strings tied to sticks) "Fishing!"
"Aye sir!" Happy yelled happily climbing onto Natsu's back.
"I'm gonna catch a big one!" Natsu yelled as they walked off to a lake they saw on the way into town.
"That was the best luck we've had in weeks!" Natsu yelled rubbing his belly.
"I'd say," Happy said licking his lips "I don't think I could eat another bite."
"Yeah, well it's getting dark, you should get home."
"Awwww! But I want to stay with you Natsu-nii Chan!" Happy wined clutching to Natsu's leg.
"I can't, I have to go into town tomorrow. And I'm sure Carla is waiting for you too~"
"Shut up!" the boy yelled blushing.
"Not until you go home." Natsu teased.
"Good, now tell Mira that I'll be by tomorrow to help out!" he yelled after the kid. "Ugh, he probably didn't hear me. Oh well time for bed!"
The next day Natsu woke up at seven, and got ready; he was just about to leave when he saw the girl's book on his desk. 'I better bring this too.' He thought. Once outside he went to her door and was about to knock when the door swung open and hit him directly in the face, squishing him in between the wall and the door.
"I'm going to be late!" he heard. Then the door swung back as she quickly fumbled for the right key, "I have too many keys." She mumbled, she obviously hadn't noticed Natsu.
"Um!" Natsu tried, but she didn't hear him. 'Fine.' He thought running after her. They had been running through town for five minutes with Natsu trying to catch up. 'This girl is so damn fast!' he thought as he dodged another fruit cart. 'It's like she's trying to avoid me.' He was about to give up when he saw her finally stop at a little café and run in. He stopped in front of the café his stomach growling 'Lucky for me she ran in here, I'm starving!' he thought running in. Once inside a girl greeted him, she had short blue hair and was wearing a maid outfit.
"Welcome back Master." She said grabbing his arm and leading him to a table.
'What kind of café is this?!' he thought sitting down. He looked around trying to find the girl; he had checked all the tables and was about to leave thinking he must have mistook her for someone else when she walked over to the table next to him wearing a outfit like the other girl "Has someone taken your order yet master?" the blue haired girl asked.
"Oh, sorry, well I was wondering if she could serve me." He asked pointing to the girl from that morning.
"Oh, okay." She smiled her eye twitching. "Lucy?"
"Yeah Levy?" the girl asked.
'So her name is Lucy.' Natsu thought blushing.
"This man here has requested you as his server." This so called Levy said pointing at him angrily.
"Oh, okay." Lucy said. 'I've never had a request before.' The thought making her blush. "So what would you want to drink master?"
"Oh, we'll actually I just wanted to return something." He said going through his bag.
'Return something? But we just met.' Lucy thought confused.
"Um, here." He said handing her the book. "You dropped it in the hall when we bumped into each other yesterday."
"Oh, um thank you." Lucy said taking the book.
"We'll I better get going." Natsu said getting up.
"Oh I'll come with you." Lucy said "just let me grab my stuff."
"But-" Natsu started, but she was already gone.
A few minutes later Lucy came back dressed in her normal clothes. "Let's go." She smiled.
"We'll before we go would you mind me asking why your leaving, didn't you just get here?"
"Ya, I came to sub in for Wendy but it seems she's here. Wait! How do you know I just got here?" She asked.
"We'll I wanted to give your book back and I followedyoufromyourapartment." He said mumbling the last part.
"You followed me?!" She yelled.
"We'll I wasn't stalking you or anything I just wanted to give your book back and-"
"It's okay, it was sweet." She blushed, making Natsu blush too.
"well lets get going." He said grabbing her hand and walking out the door.
"Where are we going? This isn't the way home." Lucy complained noticing her surroundings.
"I just have to make a quick stop."
'A stop?' Lucy thought wondering where he was taking her.
A few minutes later they arrived in front the orphanage. "Mira!" Natsu yelled. A girl with long silver hair looked up to find who was calling her name.
"Huh?-oh! Natsu!" She yelled back smiling.
All of a sudden a bunch of kids came running towards them all screaming, "NATSU!"
"Who's she?" Happy asked smirking.
"Oh, I'm Lucy." Lucy replied crouching down to happy's height.
"Do you like him?" He asked
"Natsu?" She asked. "Well of course, he's my friend!"
Happy turned and gave a thumbs up to Natsu. "Natsu's girlfriend!" The children yelled knocking Lucy down in the process.
"Hey! Be careful." Natsu yelled running to Lucy, "Sorry, are you okay?"
"Ya but...where's my bag?"
"Happy!" Natsu yelled running into the orphanage. "Found you!" He yelled. Happy was sitting in his room with a bunch of other kids; looking through Lucy's bag.
"Why does she have a maids outfit?" He asked holding it up. "Are you guys gonna play dress up?"
Natsu blushed grabbing Lucy's bag and clothes. "No!"
"Sorry Lucy." Mira said helping Lucy up.
"Lucy! Are you okay?" Natsu yelled.
"Yeah, but could we get going, I have chores to do?" She asked.
"Okay, Mira I'll be by tomorrow okay?" Mira nodded in response. "Bye!" Natsu waved.
When they got to the apartments Lucy decided she hadn't thanked Natsu properly yet. "Do you want to come in for some tea?" She asked.
"Sure." Natsu replied smiling.
Lucy unlocked the door going straight to the kitchen. "Make yourself at home!" She yelled.
Natsu sat down on her bed looking around. 'Whats that?' He thought his eyes glued to the stack of paper on the desk. Not thinking he went over to the desk and picked up the first page. 'A story?'
"What are you doing?!" Lucy yelled throwing a spoon at him.
"Ah! Lucy? I was just-is this yours?"
"Don't read it!" She blushed. "Get out!"
Natsu hurt and confused got up and went home. He sat down on his bed and thought of why she would get mad 'I'll never know'.
The next morning Lucy woke up got ready and went to work like every day, except today felt different. 'Oh well.' Lucy thought.
When she got to work she was attacked by Levy and Wendy "WHO IS HE?!" They screamed.
"W-what?! Who?!" She screamed.
"The guy that was stalking you yesterday!" Levy yelled.
"He wasn't stalking me, I ran into him the day before and dropped a book so he was trying to find me to return it."
"Oh..." Wendy said "then your okay?"
"Yes, perfectly fine." She lied, she was still upset about Natsu.
"Okay never mind then." They chimed walking away with smirks.
"What does that mean?!" She yelled. 'Oh well.' She thought walking to the locker room to get dressed.
Once changed she went to the bar and sat down looking for Natsu. 'He's not here today.' She thought remembering last night. 'Well I can see why, I shouldn't have snapped like that.'
After her shift ended and it was time to leave she was walking home when she realized she had been so deep in thought she had subconsciously walked to the orphanage. 'Well now or never right?' She thought about to go ask Mira if she'd seen Natsu.
"Where's your girlfriend Natsu?" She heard happy ask.
"For the last time she isn't my girlfriend," he said getting annoyed. "But she had to work today." he said his smile fading.
"Lucy?" Mira asked.
'Oh no! Act natural! As natural as hiding behind a tree can get.' She sighed. "Is Natsu here?" She asked.
"Yes, but why are you-?"
"Thanks Mira!" Lucy yelled running off. "Hey Natsu, about yesterday I-"
"Give me one second!" He interrupted.
"Oh, okay." She said confused.
A few minutes later Natsu came out holding a backpack. "I'll be back tomorrow Mira!" He yelled.
"So what were you saying?" He asked.
"Oh, well about last night I-"
"It's my fault, don't worry about it." He smiled.
'Okay, now what?' Lucy thought. "Do you visit the orphanage a lot?" Lucy asked.
"Ya, it's where I grew up." Natsu smiled.
'What?!' Lucy thought feeling bad for the pink haired boy.
"My parents abandoned me when I was an baby, and the orphanage took care of me. But then Igneel adopted me!" He smiled.
Lucy smiled too 'Im glad someone was there for you Natsu.'
"Although, I don't really know where he is now..." Natsu said sounding confused.
"What?" Lucy asked.
"I don't know he just disappeared one day, but I know he didn't do it on purpose, Igneel wouldn't do that."
"Natsu that's terrible." Lucy said hugging him.
"Well it's okay now that your here Lucy!" He said just before their lips met.
'What am I doing I just met him!' Lucy thought pulling away. "I'm sorry, I have to go." Lucy said running off.
Once at her apartment Lucy got out her keys and was about to open the door when she saw Happy on her doorstep. "Happy? What's wrong?" She asked.
"It's Natsu, he's gone."
