Lisanna never died in this story so she just got back from a job when Natsu saw her. Just cleared her existence :)
"Your right" Loke smiled as Lucy grins with fascination. He was quite amazed about everything about Lucy.
She loved her Keys as friends, do everything in her power or even more than she can just to make them happy… she loves them so much…and they love her too…but he feels something more than just a simple love for a dear friend…
"Oh yeah, Thanks for accompanying me here" Lucy smiled at Loke. They were at the Southgate Park at a late hour.
"No problem, all for you Lucy" Loke tried being flirty but Lucy seemed to disapprove of it.
After awhile of watching the stars…they headed for a walk and came near a small hut.
"How cute" Lucy seemed fascinated.
"That's where Lisanna and Natsu took care of Happy" Loke said "That was what I heard"
"Yeah… I heard from Mira"
"Where is he anyway?" Loke wanted to hesitate asking but was too late.
"Well…you see" Lucy sighed and lowered her head; she was having a shade of scarlet on her cheeks.
"Natsu was supposed to accompany me…"
"Why isn't he here then?"
"Lisanna asked him for a favor"
"Oh…" Loke looked at Lucy's eyes. Her smile seemed force. Even though the two were into intimacy, no one can deny Natsu still liked Lisanna and who knows if Lisanna really was just kidding of wanting to marry Natsu.
"You shouldn't-" Loke was going to put to it to her straight, but he was cut.
"I'm fine… Like he said, their just friends…and besides" Lucy turned to Loke, head high with eyes shining with wonder and hope "We promised to let each other grow…and we'll have a lot of bad times…but we'll…stick together"
'Why?' Loke asked in his thoughts 'Can't she see? His not even worth it…his better off with Lisanna…Lucy… You don't need to force that smile, open your eyes'
Unable to shut up anymore, Loke suddenly reacted. He moved from his place and wrapped Lucy in a tight embrace. Both remained still…silent…
"You know" he whispered in her ears, tightening his embrace "You should see for yourself…open your eyes, Lucy… Not everything is going the way you seem to think it is…His not worth it… Besides…What about me?"
Lucy felt a sudden chill inside her 'Lucy…What's wrong with you? His just flirting, right? The normal flirty Loke…but…why does it seem like his serious? Come on Lucy! Put it together!'
Lucy pulled away; looking like Loke went a bit overboard. She looked up at him in the eye.
"Don't joke around like that…Your just flirting again" She gave out a pitiful giggle.
"You can't fool me again…" Lucy bowed her head and whispered "Can't…" then she ran off.
Loke sighed. He can't help it; he doesn't know what to do next. He sighed and faded back to the Spirit world.
Lucy ran back home, when she got to the front door, she slammed it shut and buried her face on her bed. She stayed there for a long while, until she heard a knock at the door.
She stood and realized her Bed had drips. She wiped her eyes and made sure she looked presentable and went to get the door.
As she opened it, to her surprise, it was Lisanna.
"Lisanna?" Lucy was so confused, wasn't she with Natsu?
"Well you see…" Lisanna smiled.
"Hey Lucy, Sorry if I didn't make it to the Park" Natsu was lying on Lucy's bed.
"When Natsu came back he drag us all to the Park, he said you were there" Grays sat comfortably on the couch.
"Juvia tag along" Juvia stated as she sat near Gray.
"When we got there, it seemed that you were already gone" Erza said as she drank tea from no one knew where it came from.
"Yeah…Natsu was going crazy thinking you were kidnap or something" Happy said as he happily looks at all Lucy's keys.
Lucy's face turned pink.
"R-really?" she asked.
"Well…uhh" Natsu turned his head away; he had a shade of Red on his cheeks. Just that simple reaction seems to make Lucy warmth inside.
"Hey Lucy!" Happy called out "Open Plue!"
"Why?" Lucy asked confused.
"I wanted to play with him!" Happy smiled. Lucy agreed and looked for Plue's key.
"Plue?" Lisanna asked, quite confused.
"The little white dog Lucy brings sometime" Erza cleared things up for her. Lisanna watched in wonder as Lucy opened Plue's gate.
"Open a Gate of the Canis Minor! Nikora!" Lucy swayed her key gracefully and in sudden, a little white thing with what seemed like a carrot nose was walking saying only one thing.
"Plue!" he waved at everyone in the room.
"Long time no see, Plue!" Natsu greeted. Plue and Happy played together, jumping on Lucy's bed with Natsu.
"Wow" Lisanna clapped her hands.
"Juvia's powers still amaze Gray, her magic is nothing to mine" Juvia said upfront. Lucy ignored it.
"You're a great mage, Lucy" Lisanna smiled.
"Thanks" Lucy smiled.
"Hey, Lisanna, come here! Lucy's bed is bouncy!" he had a big grin on his face.
"Stop bouncing on my bed!"
"Bouncy!" Happy shouted.
"Plue!" Plue added. Lisanna thought of it as fun and asked Lucy for apology. She went up the bed and began bouncing. She had a bit of unbalance, luckily Natsu held her hand, making sure she doesn't fall. That small contact seemed to sting Lucy.
They were happy…enjoying bouncing…while Erza enjoy her tea from nowhere, Gray gets conscious from Juvia's stares and her… just standing watching every moment.
Lucy felt bad about what's going on…she didn't seem glad that everyone was there having fun with her in the picture…well, not much, it was her house.
"You should see for yourself…open your eyes, Lucy… Not everything is going the way you seem to think it is…His not worth it… Besides…What about me?"
Loke's word seemed to echo. She closed her eyes and went back to memory lane.
He was there when she needed him, he did have ways on flirting with her, but it seems like it's just a part of him.
He did seem sincere to her, He said he was her shining armor. His grateful to her so much that he would do anything for her.
Including, hiding how he felt about her…
Lucy opened his eyes, everyone remained the same, and nothing seems to change. She noticed Natsu glancing at her from time to time.
She smiled at him giving him reassurance. He seemed half convinced but let go of his worry. Lucy sat beside Gray, and sighed.
"Anything wrong?" Gray asked.
"Don't talk to her Gray!" Juvia warned.
"I'm fine…just… tired" Lucy closed her eyes and relaxed until she completely dozed off.
