BlackLynx17: Hi everyone, I know it's been a whole but that's because I've had writers block. I still have writers block, I don't really know where I'm heading with this story at the moment.
I've been busy with new ideas and have kind of forgotten about this one. I am going to complete this story but it will take a while.
Anyways thank you everyone who reviewed!
I do not support cutting one's self and/or killing oneself. This story doesn't support it either. This is a STORY and a STORY only! Do not try this at home kids! Threatening to kill yourself to get a girlfriend is not the answer, if having suicidal thoughts please call a specialist! Or contact a Parent or Guardian, etc. In real life if you tried to kill yourself to get a girl/boy, they might actually run away and/or stop you before you can do it.
Darn. Darn. Darn. Darn. Darn. Darn.
I wanted to curse so badly but couldn't, cursing is bad. But isn't darn a curse word? I don't care! Whatever! It was nutrition and that meant only one thing, it was test time with Loke. My feet felt as heavy as anchors as I walked to Lucy's lunch table. Once I made it outside the building I could already see a crowd, walking closer I could see the cheerleaders.
"Natsu!" everyone cheered once they saw me.
I gulped, too late to run now. I awkwardly raised my hand and waved towards the group. Gajeel was the first to talk to me. He walked up and threw an arm over my shoulder, his crackle of a laugh echoing through my ears.
"Good luck man, you're going to need it!" he laughed.
Gray pulled Gajeel back and placed his hand on my shoulder, "don't sweat it man, just try not to lose... seriously... it sucks" he said.
Confidence Natsu, confidence.
"So little geeky Natsu's going to be my opponent, should be easy enough right boys?" Loke asked.
His backup singers laughed with him. I don't think I've ever seen them apart... ever. Strange. Lucy pushed through Sugar Boy and Hughes and walked towards me.
"Shut up Loke! Good luck Natsu" Lucy said.
I stared at her, she was wearing her cheerleading outfit. I could feel a nose bleeding coming so I looked away.
"Come on Natsu boy, we don't have all day" Cana said pushing me forward.
She sat me down on the table, Loke smirked and sat down on the other side of me. We we're facing each other and I could already tell Loke was in it to win... I always wanted to use that line.
"I don't get it? What am I supposed to be doing here?" I asked pushing up my glasses.
Just then Loke lifted on of his arms and placed it on the table.
"It's an arm wrestling match silly, fist hand down loses" Cana said.
... really? I looked at the group around me, they we're all nodding and laughing. This was the big test? I could see why Gray would lose since he doesn't have any muscle but really? I had this, I could win.
"Let's hear it for Natsu girls! A 5, 6, 7, 8!"
"Go! Go! Natsu! Fight! Fight! Natsu!" they cheered.
I unbuttoned my school uniform jacket and placed it beside me. I loosened my tie a little next before placing my arm on the table. Hold up.
"Lucy, could you hold these for me?" I asked taking my glasses of.
Lucy giggled as she took them out of my hands. Wouldn't want them slipping and costing me the win.
"Are you sure that's a good idea Natsu boy?" Loke asked.
"Don't worry about me Loke" I said grabbing his hand.
Loke gripped my hand back.
"You ready to lose geek?"
Boy won't you be surprised.
"On my count! 3! 2! 1!... GO!" Mira yelled.
I felt the force against my hand, it moved my arm back slightly but not enough to win. I stared at Loke, my eyes scrunching so I could see him better, and saw him biting his lip; veins sticking out of his neck. He was really trying his best and here I was using half my power just to stay in the same place. If it would have been a fight Loke then you would have won hands down, but an arm wrestling match? I'm afraid I'd win that one.
I started putting pressure into my arm, slowly but surely pushing Loke's hand back. I heard gasps around me and saw Loke's eyes widened. I smirked a toofy grin at him then slammed his hand down. It became dead silent.
In the background I heard a faint, 'did that just happen right now?'
No one responded.
"Did I win?" I asked.
Laughter and cheers broke out around me. I was pulled out of the table and being pushed around, friendly punches against my shoulder, a few kisses on the cheeks from... gulp, cheerleaders.
"I can't believe Natsu boy did it!" Gajeel laughed.
I won? I won! I WON! But then, that would mean?! I felt my head being pulled down and my lips being crushed against someone else's. Lucy was kissing me, LUCY WAS KISSING ME! It... was such an pure kiss. Her lips just attached to mine in such a soft way. My eyes widened while Lucy's closed; both of her hands on my cheeks making them pucker up more. Now I wasn't an expert or anything on kissing but this... I would have to call this a sweet kiss.
I could care less about the wolf calls and cat whistles in the background. I was kissing Lucy Heartfilia! I realized that I hadn't closed my eyes during the kiss, even though in the movies they always closed eyes during the great kiss scene. Right when I was going to close them though Lucy pulled away. She smiled brightly at me before looking away, her face as bright red as a tomato.
"Good job boyfriend" she said.
Boyfriend. I smiled and lifted her up, spinning her around in a circle.
"NATSU?!" she laughed.
I laughed with her. For once I tried to do something... and I won. I wasn't a loser, I was a winner. A winner. Thank you Lucy, thank you.
"So, how'd you do it?" Gray asked.
"How'd I what? Win?" I asked.
"Great job in doing by the way, now I get to tease Loke about how he lost against a g-... you. How he lost against you" Gajeel covered and smirked.
I laughed. To say Loke was pissed was an understatement, he couldn't believe it! He was in denial! I've never seen him spazz out so much! I took a deep breath and sighed, today was a good day.
"So?! How'd you do it Natsu? With someone looking the way you do, no offense, no one would have thought you could win" Gray said.
"Well" I said scratching the back of my head.
Should I tell them? It's not that embarrassing, just lucky that's all.
"I'm pretty strong" I said. For a geek, loser/winner, stalker.
"We get that Natsu, but the question is how are you strong?! Do you work out?" Gray asked.
"No, it's thanks to my part-time job" I said.
"Part-time job?" Gajeel and Gray repeated.
"I work at a construction site nearby, they always have us shoveling concrete and dirt, bringing bags of cement around. I lift a lot of heavy things, that and during breaks the guys like to play games. I don't know why but arm wrestling was one of the most popular. When I first started working there I didn't play but I got into it. Thank goodness too or else I would have lost against Loke" I said.
I was never so happy in my life to work at a construction site, I have to make sure to thank the guys next time I work.
"I wish someone would have told me that when I was about to challenge Gajeel!" Gray exclaimed.
Gajeel and I just laughed.
"Three cheers for Natsu! He knocked Loke right off his high horse!" Jellal yelled.
"Hip, hip hurray! Hip, hip hurray! Hip, hip hurray!"
I blushed in my seat.
"And hope about three cheers for that kiss Lucy gave him at the end?!" Gajeel asked wiggling his eyebrows.
Lucy started blushing along with me.
"That's enough guys!" she yelled.
Our friends... our- friends. I had friends now, I had Lucy's friends now. I couldn't stop the smiling from spreading across my cheeks. Our friends all started laughing.
"Good work on Loke though Natsu, never pegged you for the muscle type" Lisanna said and winked.
"Oh well... it was nothing... really" I tongue tied.
"That was really something though, I guess people will think twice before they start messing with Natsu over here" Gray said elbowing my shoulder.
I laughed along with everyone else at the table. I had a feeling if Loke and his group would have come for lunch things wouldn't have been so... cheerful.
