Blacklynx17: Hey here is the last chapter of Patience is Key I would like to thank all my fans and reviewers for staying with me this long.
Kinda sad this is my last chapter of this story I actually enjoyed writing it.
Patience is Key
Three Years After Natsu and Lucy Left Fairytail
"HEY EVERYBODY I'M BACK" I yelled walking into Fairytail.
"NATSU" everyone yelled at me.
"How yah been?
"When you get back"
They surrounded me with hugs and playful punches.
"Hey what about me?" Happy said coming out of his hiding place.
"HAPPY!" they all yelled.
"Aye" Happy yelled back.
I watched as Happy and Charle hugged each other, and then watched as Charle slapped him across the whiskers. It's been three years he should be happy that's all she did.
"Where's Lucy?" Gray asked walking up to me carrying a little girl with short blue locks.
"Hold on whose this little one?" I said changing the subject.
"Oh a lot's changed Natsu, this is Yuki" he said.
"Wow if I didn't know any better I would think she's your daughter" I said.
Gray just stared at me.
"OMG YOU HAD A DAUGHTER WITH JUVIA!" I yelled.
"Thank you Captain Obvious" Gray said and punched my shoulder.
"Juvia wants to know where Lucy is?" Juvia said.
"So um hey how's Lisanna doing" I asked.
"Natsu!" I heard her yell. Someone ran towards me.
"Mirajane" I said as she jumped to hug me.
"No silly it's me Lis" she said lifting up her bangs. Wow she really grew her hair out.
"Good to see yah" I said hugging her back.
"How are you and Lucy doing?" she asked as I let her down.
"So is Erza still Guild Master"
"Natsu you've been avoiding the Lucy topic for quite sometime tell us where is she!" Erza yelled.
"Lucy kicked him out" Happy said out of nowhere.
"WHAT!" they all screamed.
"Pay up" I heard Elfman say in the back.
"She didn't kick me out I just simply missed you guys" I said.
"You only started missing us after 3 years?" Erza said raising an eyebrow.
"Natsu had no where else to go" Happy added again.
"WILL YOU KEEP QUIET!" I yelled at him but everybody started getting 'defensive' for Happy and gave me death glares.
"What happened with Lucy" Levy said to me deadly.
"Okay, okay, so I left with Lucy, we went to see Igneel, we had a good time then I decided to leave" I said.
"You mean you made her mad and she kicked your sorry ass out" Gray said.
"I'm surprised she didn't do it sooner" Gazille said then they started laughing about it.
"Truth is Natsu moved in with Lucy and apparently Lucy knew every available guys name and they all knew hers so he finally snapped, called her a whore and that's when Lucy sent Loke on Natsu, kicked his ass, and finally kicked Natsu out" Happy said.
All of a sudden I was getting beaten to a bloody pulp.
"HOW COULD YOU CALL LUCY WHORE" they yelled.
"Hey you don't know how it felt when every guy in town was eyeing my woman" I said.
"Ex-woman" Happy said.
"THAT'S IT HAPPY" I yelled and started chasing him around the room.
When he flew passes Erza, she help her arm out letting me run directly into it.
"Natsu" she said helping me up. Nice to see Erza got nicer over the years.
"YOU IDIOT!" she yelled as she punched me.
I went flying. Damn she got a lot stronger.
"It's not my fault I got jealous"
"Not about that you idiot, though I should punch you again for that, you left Lucy all alone and depressed so what do you think she's going to do" Erza said.
"… pig out"
"NO YOU IDIOT SHE'S GOING TO FIND A REBOUND GUY" she yelled.
"OH MY GOD SHE'S GOING TO CHEAT ON ME AGAIN!"
"Let's not forget who cheated first now"
Oh no… I knew that voice. I turned around and saw her. There she stood, Lucy, and all her blonde glory, that's right she let her blonde hair grow back out, but it was still red at the bottom… kinda made her look like her hair was on fire… hahaha fire…. Hold on she looked fatter.
"Lucy you got huge! You really did pig out phew I thought you would have found another guy to fuck" I said in relief.
Her eyes twitched.
"FATHER!" she yelled.
My eyes widened.
OH GOD! NO PLEASE OH DEAR GOD NO!
Igneel walked right beside her.
"Told you" she said.
He started cracking his knuckles and gave me one of his toothy grins.
"No Igneel you know I didn't mean it NO!"
He lunged for me laughing.
I watched as Igneel beat the shit out of Natsu and laughed.
"LUCY" my friends yelled.
"Hey guys been a while" I said and hugged them all.
"How yah been" Levy asked.
"Well not well as you can see" I said and we looked at the fight occurring 10 feet from us.
Igneel just had Natsu in a suplexe
(I don't know wrestling moves, pretty sure some of you don't either so I'm going to explain some. My brother told me this is where they hugged them then lifts them up and slam their heads backwards.)
We all sweat-dropped.
"Should we help him" Gray asked.
"Nah let's let him suffer for a while and whose this little bundle of joy" I said looking at the kid hiding behind Gray's legs. She looked like a miny Juvia.
"Yuki" she said blushing then hid behind Gray again.
"KAWAII!" I screamed.
"LUCY GOD LUCY HELP!" Natsu screamed.
Igneel stopped and looked at me. He currently had Natsu in a head-lock.
"Continue" I said.
"NO LUCY I THOUGHT YOU LOVED ME!"
"And I thought you weren't a dumbass"
"Um Lucy, Natsu falling unconscious" Erza said.
"Enough about Natsu let's talk about you. How's your love life?" I asked.
Erza blushed. Wow I didn't think she was capably of blushing.
"Um Lucy do you think you could perhaps save Natsu now please… Aye?" Happy said.
I picked him up and started petting him.
"Of course anything for you Happy. Igneel" I said.
Igneel looked up at me.
"Thank… thank god" Natsu said.
"One more move then let him go" I said.
"Yes Ma'am" Igneel said.
"NOO" Natsu screamed as Igneel pile drived him then silence.
(I think pile drive is when you get picked up, your hear facing the floor, then get your head slammed against the ground).
I walked up to Natsu as Igneel pulled his head out the ground.
"Have you learned your lesson?" I asked.
"Yes" he said breathing heavily.
"And what is it?"
"Never…talk shit about you?" he said.
"Close enough put him down"
I sighed and closed my eyes. That's the best I'll get out of him. Igneel dropped his ass.
"I thought you loved me Igneel" Natsu said.
"I do but right now Lucy's needs are more important due to-"
"IGNEEL!" I yelled, he shutted up.
I put Happy down then grabbed him and pulled him away.
"I thought I told you I would tell him" I whispered.
"Right sorry it's due to my old age remember?" he replied. We laughed.
"Um Luce did you come here to take me back?" Natsu asked hiding behind Erza.
"No when I said you could leave anytime you wanted to I really meant it" I said.
He sighed in relief.
"Then why did you come here?" he said.
"Well I just wanted to wait till you came back, which could have took I don't know months, but Igneel wouldn't let me since you might miss it and-"
"Luce can you get to the point" Natsu said.
I cleared my throat and Igneel started cracking his knuckles again.
"Or talk as long as you want, no rush" he added.
"Now I know why you left Igneel" I said.
"Okay so the thing is I'm pregnant that's it, I'm going back home see yah" I said.
Natsu stood there blank.
I would have left if his face wasn't so amusing.
"Pregnant as in soon to have egg" he said.
"Natsu Dragon's have eggs, Humans have babies" Igneel said.
Natsu ran up to me and grabbed my hands.
"I'm going to be a Daddy" he said excited.
"I'm going to be a Mother, but I'm not sure your going to be a Father" I told him.
"Why" he said hurt.
"Hmm let me see other than you being a COMPLETE IDIOT!" I yelled.
"But you love that about me"
I smacked my head.
"Your messy, always getting into fights, you never listen"
"But that's every male"
"YOU LIT HAPPY ON FIRE!"
"His fur grew back"
"BUT OUR BABIES WON'T"
Igneel grabbed my shoulder.
"Natsu your just not Daddy material, your still a child yourself. I can tell by the way you just called me a whore then ran away" I said.
Doesn't that sound familiar.
"What was I suppose to do when EVERYGUY WAS LOOKING AT YOU! You should have heard the stuff they were saying about you, about what you did"
"You could have been an adult and told me about it instead of leaving"
"Come on Luce he's my egg/baby to you cant cut me out of his life"
"Fine why don't I like you calling me Luce"
"I'm giving you a chance to redeem yourself. You wanted a chance right? Answer the question."
Natsu stayed quiet.
"See I knew you!"
"You don't like being called Luce because all your ex's called you that" he said.
"You didn't tell them your real name because you didn't want to get attached to them in fear that they would hurt you like I did, so you made them call you the nickname I used to call you, but the real reason is because I mean more to you. I'm not just some one-night stand, you love me."
"You don't want me calling you Luce because it reminds you of all the old ex's you had and you fell ashamed or something around that. You want to keep me and you feel if I call you that you just think I'm one of your new toys."
"The real reason I call you that though is because I love you. I want you to overcome your fear of me hurting you again. I know me leaving you again didn't help that and I'm sorry. It's just I call you Luce because that was the name I made for you. I don't want you to be haunted by your past any longer, I want you to move on with me" he said.
I don't know if it was because of the mood swings or because Natsu ACTAULLY remembered but I started crying.
"And the REAL reason why I left wasn't because you kicked me out" Nastu started.
"*cough* yes it was *cough*" Happy coughed.
I leaned my head side ways.
"It was to…" he said then ran towards Lisanna then ran back towards me. He kneeled down on one knee and pulled out a ring.
"It was for this. Luce will you marry me?" he asked.
Everyone gasped and awed. Everyone but me.
"No" I said.
He stared at me.
"Um Lucy I don't think you heard me right the first time so I'll -"
"No I heard you. You asked me to marry you" I said interrupting him.
He got up.
"So why didn't you say yes?"
"Well it's certainly not because you just got Lisanna's old wedding ring, which I wonder why she still has, its just I don't want to marry you" I said.
He started at me then at Igneel.
"Igneel" he said and gestured towards me.
"It's her decision" he said.
"But you're my mate" Natsu told me.
"Exactly! Did I ask to be your mate NO you and Igneel just laid it on ME WITHOUT EVEN CONSULTING ME ABOUT IT!" I screamed.
They backed away.
Juvia walked up and put an arm around me.
"Don't worry it's just mood swings, mine were 10 times worst" she said.
Everyone is Fairytail shivered.
"She just needs rest" Juvia added.
"But wait what about us?" Natsu said.
"What about us" I said.
"Are we good? Am I forgiving? Are we still together?"
"Yes, yes, and yes happy?" I said.
"Aye" Happy said.
"Not you Happy, feeling happy" I said.
"But you said"
"That I'd let you be in out babies lives and that I'd forgive you and I did"
"Then why wont you marry me?"
"Why should I marry you?"
"Because you love me!"
"Lisanna loved you and looked how that turned out"
"You were going to marry Link!"
"Because I didn't want to get hurt anymore!" I said. Oops. I think I hurt Natsu with that one.
"Well I'm sorry I'm not Link" he said.
"Even if you were I still wouldn't marry you" I said.
He looked at me confused.
"I'd rather get hurt and be with you Natsu then never get hurt and be with Link for the rest of my life. I love you Natsu, I truly do but I just don't think were cut out for marriage with my background and your experiences" I said.
"At least I know you still love me" he said then walked over and gently kissed me. We smiled at each other.
"Let's go home" I said.
That smiled turned into a frown.
"Nope!" he said and let me go.
"And why not!"
"Unless you can make every guy you've done it with move I'm staying right here" he said.
"Gosh your just jealous that I've gotten way more than you have" I said.
"No I'm jealous of how all the guys are saying HOW THEY HAVE DONE YOU" he said and we started arguing again.
"ENOUGH!" Igneel roared.
"I am tired of you two arguing and I'm sure it's not healthy for the baby so I've come up with a compromise. Why don't we all just move here" he said.
"Why Luce that sounds like a great idea" Natsu said.
"No we wouldn't have a place to live, I'm sure my landlord hasn't just kept my old apartment free till I would come back"
"We can live at my house!"
"You haven't been there in three years, it's probably all dirty"
"Actually we have been taking turns keeping it clean just incase you two would ever come back" Lisanna said.
"See Lucy everything's perfect"
"I do not want to stay in a house where you have 'slept' with other people in"
"Technically you 'slept' with other people in you apartment and bed you and Natsu have been sleeping on" Igneel said.
I glared at him.
"That's not helping" I said.
"He's right Lucy if it helps I'll even get us a new bed. I want our children to be raised around our friends/family" Natsu said.
"Yah Magnolia is the perfect place to raise a family" Erza said. Everyone in Fairytail started agreeing with each other. I started to shake my head.
"I need to leave" I said and ran out of Fairytail.
"LUCY, LUCY, LUCE! WAIT UP!" Natsu said running after me.
Might as well before he starts breathing fire.
"Luce what was that are you-"
I put my hand over his mouth.
"Just keep quiet please" I told him.
All this stress was giving me a migraine. He nodded and I removed my hand from his face. Instead he took my hand as we started walking around Magnolia in silence. It kinda surprised me Natsu kept quiet as we walked. Even when people would talk to us he'd just smile and wave then move on with me.
We, well I, finally made it to our destination. The place we used to sit out and watch the stars together. I let go of his hand and layed down on the grass. He layed next to me while I rubbed my stomach.
"Can we talk now" he asked.
I knew the silence was killing him so I nodded.
"Could I feel?" he asked me.
"Sure but you won't feel it kicking. I'm not sure if it's that mature yet" I said as I grabbed his hand and put it on my stomach. His hands felt so warm.
"How long have you known"
"About a month and a half, I was going to tell you-"
"Until I left"
"Luce you love me right?" he said.
"Yes" I responded.
"And you know I love you and our unborn egg child" he said.
"I'll move back if that's what you really want" he said.
"Really" I asked.
"But could you at least tell me the reason why?"
"I like my old town"
"I meant why you don't want to live here"
"I'm still waiting"
"… for you to leave me" I said a single tear dropping down my cheek.
Natsu engulfed me into a hug.
"Lucy that was a mistake"
"I know but I can't forget Natsu. You know I forgive you, and you've made it up to me but I'm scared you'll just cheat on me again and then I'll leave again and… and"
I said crying now.
"Lucy you need to know I wont ever, EVER, do that to you again. You're my mate, I choose you! Not Lisanna. I love you, especially now that your carrying out baby" he said.
I wiped my tears away and giggled.
"You said baby this time" I said.
He finally smiled.
"Did I? I meant egg"
"Natsu I want to live here but I what if that happened again. I don't want to leave here again, it was so hard the first time. I love Magnolia and everyone in it. it's the perfect place to raise a child, everyone is so nice, Fairytail is awesome I just wouldn't be able to leave all this again"
"I'll move here again but only if when we break up you'll be leaving this time" I said smiling.
"Deal since were never breaking up ever again which brings me back to the point which is why are you refusing to marry me?" he said
"Do I look like the kind of girl who would liked to be proposed in front of all our friends with an engagement ring another woman wore" I said.
"No you look more like my future wife and mother of my eggs" he said.
"Whatever" I said brushing him off and looking back towards the sky.
"I was being serious Lucy Heartfilia will you marry me?" he said.
"No ring" I said looking at him and raising an eyebrow.
"I'll buy you one later and propose properly this time"
"So why ask now?"
"It would be nice to know you will say yes next time. Kinda damage my ego"
"Fine yes I'll marry you" I said.
We both smiled.
"Mrs. Lucy Dragneel has a nice ring to it doesn't it?"
I nodded slowly.
"And this time I'll only have eyes for you" he said.
"Promise?" I asked him.
"Promise" he answered.
And he sealed that promise with a kiss.
No really that's the end thanks for reading...
