Chapter Six: Conversational
A content silence fell over the group of women before Levy broke it lazily, her own eyes closed and a small smile on her cute face. "So, Lucy. How are things with you and Natsu?" she asked slyly, cracking one eye open to look over at her friend. At her question, Lucy tensed slightly and a flush that had nothing to do with the heat of the room crawled up her neck.
"W-we're doing fine. He's been the sweetest boyfriend I've ever had so far." Lucy giggled and began to relax again as she began to remember her still very new relationship. "He's still so shy sometimes and there are times where it's like nothing has changed. But overall, I don't think I could be happier." She paused and a wicked smile twisted her pert lips. "What about you and Gajeel?"
Levy grinned and let her eyes close once more. "Oh, you don't even have to ask. He can be a jerk sometimes, but all I have to do is start crying, and he starts panicking." They shared a laugh as they pictured the mean, battle hardened Iron Dragon Slayer coming unraveled at the sight of his girlfriend in tears.
"What about the…you know?" Lucy asked, her eyes opening so she could see her friend's reaction to her question. Silently, Erza simply listened to the girls as they continued their conversation, content to simply listen rather than participate.
"What are you talking about?" Levy asked with a frown. Lucy sighed and tried not to blush.
"Have you guys had sex yet?"
