A/N: Hey ~ Mira-Chan here! This is my first Fairy Tail FanFic! It does not have that much detail on the setting & such, so I will take it you already know Fairy Tail enough to just imagine it! Please review it with love! Enjoy!
"Natsu, did you get any sleep last night?" she asked.
The boy yawned and shook his head.
With a loud thud, he pressed his face against the wooden table and fell asleep.
Lucy let out a long sigh. "Happy," she began as she turned to the flying cat, "make sure he gets more sleep. We can't go on a job when he's like this." She crossed her arms annoyed, "Jeez, what could you be doing at night?"
"Natsu keeps on having nightmares," the cat said as he landed near Natsu's head. "He wakes up during the middle of the night screaming his pants off!"
"What did he scream?" Mirajane asked from behind the counter. She smiled sweetly as she listened in on their conversation.
Erza walked towards the table Natsu was resting on. "Yes, I would like to know as well. What exactly is it that Natsu fears so much?"
"I don't know if it is fear," Happy began, "Demo, he screamed her name really loudly!"
"Her name?" Lucy asked. "Could it be Erza?"
"I'm not scary, Lucy," Erza corrected.
"Ji-Gao!" Happy said. "The name he shouted was actually Lisa-" he was cut short by Natsu. The boy grabbed the neko and ran off.
"Yosh! It's just a job right! I can handle it! Bring it on!" Natsu shouted. "Who needs sleep!"
Lucy stared at the two. "What's with them?"
"Shall we follow, Lucy?" Erza suggested.
"Hai!" Lucy said. "Chotto-Matte, Natsu!" She quickly dashed after him.
Mirajane's eyes grew wide, but she soon smiled slowly. "Lisanna, ka?"
"Ne-Chan, is something wrong?" Elfman asked his big sister.
She continued scrubbing the plate in her hand, "Oh, no. I just think I'll have to speak to Lucy-San soon."
"Why?" he asked.
She only smiled.
"I don't want to," Natsu replied sternly.
Lucy looked surprised. "Nani? You are usually really excited when I invite you over!"
"It's suspicious," Natsu said.
"Coming to my house without my consent is suspicious!" she snapped.
He looked away. "Well, then I won't come over."
"I didn't want you to either! Mira-San said that it was for a really important cause!" Lucy complained. "Come on! I don't want to let her down!"
She was dragging him into her house. He tried to resist, but the lack of sleep was really getting to him.
"I want to go home, Lucy," he said as he pulled away from the door. "Besides, Happy is waiting for me."
"Happy also agreed to Mira-San's plan!" she said as she dragged him through her doorway.
Natsu plopped down head-first to the ground. "Well, what's the plan?"
"Et-to, I'm not really sure," Lucy said. "She told me to just to keep you here for the night."
"Soka?" Natsu said slowly. He didn't stir from the ground.
Mira-San was right, Lucy thought to herself. Natsu really isn't himself. I guess he really does need some rest.
"Are you asleep?" she whispered.
She bent down next to him. "You can sleep on the bed, you know. I don't mind."
"I'm not sleepy."
Lucy ran her fingers down her hair, "Jeez, you're so stubborn today." She blushed a little and stared at him. "W-Well, fine. I guess I'll take the bed then."
"Go ahead, I don't care."
"Fine!" Lucy huffed. He can be a real jerk when he's tired! That was what she thought, but Lucy knew it was because he was scared of his dreams. "You don't have to act tough, Natsu."
The boy didn't answer. He just stared down at the ground.
"If you're scared to sleep, then I can always help you." She smiled weakly, "When I was a little girl, I couldn't sleep because Mama wasn't there anymore. So, my Nanny bought me a teddybear. It really helped me."
Natsu didn't move.
"What I'm trying to say is," Lucy said from her bed, "I can be like that teddybear for you." What the hell am I saying! "Ahaha," she laughed weakly and crawled under the covers. "That sounded pretty stupid! Forget I said anything!"
"Move over," Natsu grumbled as he went on Lucy's bed.
She blushed and looked back, "W-What are you doing!"
"What? You told me to," he said as he put his arms around her.
Lucy turned bright red.
"You'll be my teddybear, right?" Natsu asked with a big toothy grin.
"U-Uh sure," she said as she closed her eyes tightly.
Soon, the Dragon Slayer had fallen asleep.
That's great, Lucy thought. But now I can't sleep! Mira-San!
Mirajane was in her nightgown on her bed. She smiled and looked up at the moon through her window. "I do hope the plan went smoothly. I'm pretty sure it did, right Lisanna?"
