I don't own anything but Brooke.
*BTW for this chapter I thought it might be interesting if I tried to work things out in mostly Gray's POV (new experiment) haha I hope you ENJOY!
"RING! RING! Hey Brooke you there?"
Great. Anyone ever heard of a peaceful morning?
"WHAT DO YOU WANT?" I couldn't help but grumble.
Who is that anyways? Seriously, I am NOT a morning person.
"I'm coming in!" Replied a deep voice.
Click. I stood up in alarm, who's there? Hearing footsteps I stayed on the edge of my door to get ready to do whatever it takes to stay alive,
"Hey Brooke where are y-"
WHAM! Take my round house kick you stranger! Wait. I turned around to see messy black hair. Oh shit…
"Ahhh! Gray are you okay? Oh my God sorry?"
He looked up to give me an evil eye, not that I blame him. I round house kicked him in the stomach, I wouldn't blame anyone for hating me after one of those. He sighed,
"It's cool, I'll live… I think."
It's not like I meant to hit him, but when you find someone entering your house you can't help but you know. Be prepared for the worse? I sighed,
"Well I was just about to eat breakfast, you want some?"
This seemed to brighten his mood slightly, making his eyes faintly sparkled. Score! Way to smooth things over with food! After all everything seems better after you eat.
"Um, is there anything you specifically want?"
Gray tapped his chin curiously. I hope he doesn't make me cook a feast because there can only be so much breakfast food you could make…
"How about some pancakes, bacon, and eggs. Oh, and some cereal if you have any."
Seemed reasonable to me, I took out my frying pan and cracked a few eggs. I wonder if Mystogan has eaten breakfast yet. There are still many more questions for me to ask, but at least I feel a little better. Hopefully.
"Brooke, I think you should flip the egg now?" Gray suggested to me hesitantly.
Oops. I flipped the egg and sighed in relief when the egg wasn't burnt. Turning around, I opened the fridge, bacon, bacon, bacon… AHA! I found it! I pulled out a pack, but then something happened. All of the things in my freezer fell on me… And when I mean everything, I mean everything. You name it, ice cream, more bacon, microwaveable mini pizzas, some popsicle sticks, dumplings and etc.
"Ow-w-w." I groaned in pain.
Who knew frozen foods could be a weapon? Right then I heard Gray chuckle,
"Wow Brooke, I never would've guessed you were the klutzy type. Here I'll take that." He said as he grabbed the bacon,
"And now you can just make the pancake batter."
I looked at Gray confusingly for a second and instead of him repeating his directions he hit me on the head with the frozen bacon and said,
" Just go make some pancakes Klutzy."
I felt my face burn from embarrassment. Klutzy? Now that's pretty messed up! Okay, so yeah I am a little clumsy but that's pretty bad. I huffed at him rudely and went to find my flour, but sadly on my way to one of my cabinets I had fallen over my own feet, again earning a,
"You alright Klutzy? You didn't break anything right?"
I laughed at him remembering whose territory he was in,
"Hey you do remember I can kick you out of my house and leave you outside starving? Oh, and I do remember Mirajane telling me that you were starving since, what was it Saturday? And what day is it today?"
I heard Gray gulp loudly, which was TOTALLY satisfying,
"Well Brooke today is Monday. Oh, and how do you like your bacon?" His voice shook as he tried with all his might to sound like a gentleman. He sounded pretty manly, but when we looked at each other for a moment we couldn't help but both laughed for a while. Even though he and I knew I was threatening him, if you thought about it, it was pretty hilarious. It was like threatening a oblivious "gentleman". That "gentleman" being Gray, yup the pessimistic, idiotic, yet interesting guy. Eventually we got our food all prepared and we sat under my kotatsu, and began to eat.
This was nice. I've never really had such a nice breakfast. Nice. No that wasn't the word to describe this breakfast… it was more like comfortable. Brooke's home was a nice place, and completely furnished despite the fact of her being here for such a short time. The outside of her house was much like Lucy's but the aura around it was completely different, when I saw Lucy's place I found that her place just seemed normal, like any other house in Magnolia. But looking at Brooke's place, I felt anxious, almost excited to go inside to greet her. Then when I opened the doors of Brooke's home, I felt like I was comfortable, possibly content, like I truly belonged here. Even eating with her now, I don't feel a bit of discomfort, it almost as though I've always been here the whole time. I took a bite of pancake as I was thinking about Brooke. Wow. This tastes awesome!
"Wow, Brooke this pancakes are awesome! There not too sweet and not too flat, just right." I told her while stuffing another pancake in my mouth.
She giggled softly,
"Well I'm glad you liked it. It was my special cook's recipe from a long time ago,"
I honestly was starving since Saturday because sadly I had NO food at home AND all the money from my last mission was Brooke had all been spent! So, yeah. I wonder… maybe I can go on another mission with Brooke again?
"Hey Brooke, you want to go on another mission?"
Brooke looked at me with curious eyes and shrugged,
"Eh, can't. I promised Natsu I would go on a mission with him. Maybe next time?"
My eyes widened like a cat who just got slapped in the face with his favorite catnip. A mission with Natsu? I slightly looked away. I couldn't help but feel hurt but I shrugged it off anyways and slightly trembled with annoyance when I said,
"Tha-at's cool, well then we'll t-take on a mission together n-next time."
She gave me a strange look but quickly stood up,
"Well I gotta get ready to go to Magnolia Station, so you can finish up eating and lock my door 'kay?"
I simply nodded and watched her walk out the door. When she left, her house just felt empty, and all I could really do was stare at the floor. It's not like I was jealous or anything but, it just wasn't like Brooke to go on a mission with Natsu. Well then again how do I know if it would be like Brooke to go on a mission with Natsu, she's only been here for like a month or two… But he's still an idiot I mean what if that idiot accidentally burns her? Anything can happen! What if Brooke ends up falling in love with Natsu? Lucy already fell for his innocent affections, what if she did too? Gross… I don't want her to leave with him. All I want is her guaranteed safety, that's it. There's nothing to be jealous about, and then I remembered what Mirajane had told me yesterday morning
"Hey Gray don't you think Brooke is pretty? I think you and her would just make the perfect couple~!
I shook my head vigorously, Mirajane is just imagining another impossible romance fairytale story in her head again. Right?
*Haha sorry for taking so long and this is only one of the chapters I promised -_- but believe it or not even though it is short, I did spend a lot of time on it so I hoped you enjoyed it! Please review!
