I know I said this was a one shot but then I got twelve reviews, TWELVE! So I thought, hey why not put in a chapter of Natsu's reasons? Well, here it is, a chapter full of reasons why I think it would always be Lucy (not Lisanna, stupid nice take-over bitch getting in the way of my ship) for Natsu!
Anyway, here it is! Please show me just as much love as you did on the last chapter and I may reward you again ;)
Disclaimer - Seriously, I do not own them as much as I wish I owned the wonderful Nalu.
Natsu Dragneel was not as dense as everyone thought he was.
Sure, he may not be the wisest guy around but he know some things.
Like he knew that whenever Lyon walked into the room, Gray would immediately, discreetly, rush to Juvia's side and unconsciously stare Lyon down until he got the hint and left Juvia alone.
Or that Erza was pretty docile most of the time these days but if you touched, no, evenmildly disturbed her strawberry cake you were going to be thrown across the guild at unimaginable speeds only to likely be followed by a enraged woman in armour.
But more importantly Natsu knew that the guild members liked to ask Lucy why.
Why to exactly? Why, as in why she was in love with the certain pink-haired dragon slayer in question.
As for her answer, he knew that too.
Now, after learning this information (from overhearing a very drunk Lucy explain them to a very drunk Cana at one of the guild's crazy parties with his enhanced dragon-hearing) he had thought to himself how it effected him. He'd come to the conclusion that it made him feel all fuzzy, gooey-like and to think very mushy (slash-slightly-perverted) thoughts that would have made manly Elfman faint.
So upon this information, he did what any other man would do in his situation.
He made his own list why.
Because she was the one who bought him lunch in Port Hargeon for reasons he still could not quite understand.
Because she was the weird girl he'd just met that he'd saved from slavery only to have her wash him away with a giant, and very pissed-off, fish lady.
Because she was the one who smiled so brilliantly when he'd offered to take her to Fairy Tail.
Because she was the one who followed him into the mountains without even barely knowing him.
Because she was the one who first showed him Celestial Spirit Magic.
Because she was the one who made him want to form a team with someone other than his flying blue best friend for the first time in his life.
Because she was the one who eagerly followed him on an S-class quest after learning that the reward was a golden gate key.
Because she was the one who he spared a moments concern for other than the villain in front of him for the first time.
Because she was the one who was captured by Phantom Lord and made him lose his cool for the first time ever.
Because she was the one who made his heart stop beating when she jumped out of Phantom Lord's headquarters.
Because she was the one who gave him the strength to kick Gajeel's arse when he tortured her.
Because she was the one who cried for him when he could not cry for himself.
Because she was the one who let him sleep in her bed even without her consent.
Because she was the one who clung to him as he fell off of a cliff.
Because she was the one he had to save from the Edolas Kingdom Knights even though he had no magic of his own to protect her with.
Because she was the one who he opened his eyes to see after having had his magic drained.
Because she was the one who he really had believed would have enough sex appeal to stop the monsters.
Because she was the one who made realise that even though it was a miracle Lisanna was alive, he had begun missing her less and less after Lucy had come into his whacked up life.
Because she was the one who made his heart stop after refusing to run away even though she was completely helpless and about to have her skull crushed.
Because she was the one who he made fly through the air with a flaming fist.
Because she was the one who caught his hand when he fell.
Because she was the one who taught him how to dance with patience even after stepping on her feet repeatedly.
Because she was the one who rejected Gray, much to his satisfaction, in order to continue teaching him how to dance.
Because she was the one who he remembered even after she'd faded from existence.
Because she was the one he froze mid-air for after hearing her voice screeching at him to stop attacking.
Because she was the one who he was hurt for.
Because she was the one who he just had to save even after she'd already been lost.
Because she was the one who he ran faster than he ever had in his life just to make sure he caught her.
Because she was the one who made him realise that they could fight in this world.
Because she was the one who had made him realise that there were more types of love in this world other than the familial and platonic kind.
Because she was the one who introduced him to new emotions and feelings that he'd never imagined existed.
Because she was the one who had changed his life.
Because, even if his life was forfeit in the process, she was the one who he would always save.
Because even though he may have known her reasons why and there was a possibility that she knew his, he couldn't bring himself to say it outright to the one person who meant most to him in the world.
Because she, in all her quirks, was his best friend with many reasons attached to make him think otherwise, and that, for him, was enough for now.
Or at least until he figured out how to tell a crazy Lion Spirit he was in love with his owner.
Now I'm officially done!
You know what to do, cough cough review.
Thank you and I'm out!
Love you always, xoxo.
