Frozen Raindrops

A/N I don't own Fairy Tail. sorry for the cliche JubiaxGray title.

"Natsu, quit it!" Gray hissed. The two were currently wrestling with each other- nothing out of the ordinary there.

"Natsu, Gray, stop!" Lucy exclaimed, moving between the two to break them up. It was then that Gray tripped, falling to the ground. Well, not exactly the ground. At least he managed to land on something soft. He blinked, then flushed as he noticed his face mere inches from Lucy's. He looked down, his flush deepening as he noticed his hands were on a very inappropriate place. For a moment neither of them moved, both just blinking in shock. Natsu was having problems trying to hide his giggling. Then, it began to rain.

The cold water hitting his face snapped him out of it, and he instantly jumped up. "Sorry, Lucy. I didn't mean it..."

Lucy didn't reply, her gaze focused on something in the distance. "Gray..."

He followed her gaze, then winced as he noticed Jubia waking dejectedly away from them, the rainclouds following.

"Hmm? What's wrong with Jubia?" Natsu asked, blinking.

Lucy looked over at Natsu, frowning. "Well, she probably just saw me and Gray in a rather... Compromising condition."


"Idiot," Gray hissed, eyes still focused on where Jubia had disappeared to. "You never get anything."

Jubia was crying, and when Jubia cried, it poured. Lucy had lied... She said that she and Jubia were not rivals in love and yet... As tears poured from her eyes, rain drops poured from the sky, drenching her. Not that she cared. At the moment, there was only one thing she cared about...

The rain came down harder, but suddenly, they stopped pouring down on her head. She looked up startled, surprised to see an umbrella being held over her head- an umbrella made of ice.


Gray sat beside her, staring at her for a few moments. "There's no reason to be so upset."

"But you and Lucy-"

"Nothing's going on between us," Gray explained. "Trust me... What you saw... It was an accident."

Jubia sniffled for a few moments before replying. "Even if that is true... You don't like Jubia."

Gray shifted uncomfortably, staring up at the pouring rain. He closed his eyes as it washed down his face. He had known that this conversation had bee coming, as much as he tried to avoid it... He looked over to the girl sitting next to him, watching the tears track their way down her face. "You really like me that much?"

"Ever since I first saw you... Jubia felt the pitter patter in her heart." The rain fell harder as more tears poured from her eyes.

"There's nothing-" he wiped the tears from her cheek with the back of his hand. "to cry about."

"I want to believe Gray-sama," she replied, sniffing. "But Jubia can't stop the raindrops from falling from the sky... or her eyes." She stared at the ground, unable to meet his gaze.

"If you don't stop crying," he warned, "I'm going to make you."

Jubia was startled by the stern tone of his voice, tilting her head to avert her gaze from him all together. "You'll... make... me? How?" She let out another sniffle.

Gray tilted her head so she had to look at him. He stared at her sternly as more tears came from her eyes, then tilted his head slightly. "By doing this." Leaning forward, he gently pressed his lips to hers. She instantly melted, literally turning into a puddle of water.

"Jubia? Are you okay?"

At the sound of his voice, she snapped out of her swoon and reverted to her normal form before throwing herself onto Gray's lap, wrapping her arms around him and kissing him fiercely.

And up above, the rain stopped falling.

A/N This is my first Fairy Tail fic, so I hope it came out okay...
