Prologue

Year 773

In all of Earthland, magic has branched off into a variety of form. Some of which are common amongst its inhabitants, while others of extraordinary power have become lost through the passing of time. This story tells the adventures of a boy who has mastered one of these lost forms of magic. Fire Dragon Slayer magic…

"Damn it!"

well, that was the idea.

In a forest within the kingdom of Fiore, far from any human life, there lay an unlikely pair. One is a small boy clenching his right wrist wearing only a pair of raged brown pants held together with a piece of rope. The most notable feature of this child would be his spiky pink hair. In front of him is a creature of legend, an enormous reptile like creature that towers over most buildings, cover in red scales, powerful wings that enable him to soar majestically in the sky, claws that can destroy the toughest of stone with ease, two long horn on the back of its head with another at the tip of its snout, and a pair of burning, gold eyes. A dragon.

"Get it right you foul. How many times have we gone over this?" the dragon bellowed at the boy.

"I'm trying my best, but this stuff is hard to understand!" the boy snapped back at mighty creature.

"I have explained it countless times, Natsu." the dragon said. "This magic is meant for you to be able to harness the power of fire, consume it, breath it, envelope your body, just as I do. This is the power that belongs to the mighty fire dragon."

"But you said I'm human and not a dragon back when I tried to fly off that one cliff, right Igneel?" he replied, starting to pout as he looked at the ground. "How am I supposed to use this magic if it's not even meant for a human to use?"

Igneel let out a deep sigh in both frustration and sympathy. He had spent years raising the child like he was his own son. He wanted the boy to learn this magic and he knew he was running short on time.

"…understand…" that word echoed in his mind, reminding him of an ulterior approach.

"Natsu, I think it would be best if we hold off on your Dragon Slayer training and focus on another that might be of some help." He said causing the boy to look up at him.

"Another?" he asked, not completely sure what he's talking about.

"It is a form of magic that will increase your learning capabilities. Hopefully that will lead to you being able to use my brand of magic properly." Igneel told the child.

"…learning…" that word echoed in his mind, reminding him of numerous headaches.

"Listen," Igneel beckoned, snapping the boy out of his little stupor, "as you are now, the only way you will be able to use my magic is by either implanting a type of lacrima, one that is of the correct nature and at the moment not in my possession, into your body or have you learn this alternate magic. Though, it will not be without some drawbacks. The choice is yours."

Natsu just looked at him with wide eyes for only a few seconds before putting on a serious expression on his face. "Alright father, teach me." He said with a new found confidence in his voice.

"Very well, we shall begin now!"

Chapter 1- Salamander Comes to Town

Year 784

Hargeon, a large port town located in the southern part of Fiore.

*Beep* "Attention passengers, the train will be departing shortly. If any wish to board or get off, please do so now." the voice from the local train station rang out.

"Natsu, come on. The train is about to leave.

In one of the rear carts, we find two travels in a bit of a pinch. One appeared to be a blue furred cat, standing in a pair of small brown boot and a green cloth pack tied around his neck. The other was a man wearing a black, gold trimmed jacket with matching jean pants, black shoes, a crimson under shirt and a white scarf with a scale like pattern. The two things that made him stand out the most were his pink hair that was in unruly spikes, and his comically advanced case of motion sickness.

"… Happy...p-lease… help." he plead to his feline companion.

"Um, is your friend okay?" a nearby worker asked seeing the odd sight.

"Aye, Natsu always gets like this when it comes to transportation, huh?" Happy answer, only to be distracted from an all too alluring sent.

"Fish!" he cheered as he ran out the door before it close it the whistle's call. "Huh?"

He looked behind him to see Natsu with his upper body hanging out of one of the train's windows screaming in horror. "YOU DAMN LITTLE TRAITOR!" Happy just continued to stand on the platform, looking at the ever shrinking train.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXX

Else were in Hargeon, at proper grocery-

"Wha-, this is the only place in town that sells magic?" came the feminine voice another pacing mage. She appeared to be in her late teens, wearing a white vest with blue trimmings, blue skirt, black knee high boots, and a brown belt with a black, spade tipped whip resting on her left hip and a ring of assorted key on her right. Her body had a healthy amount of curves and shoulder length blonde hair with some on the top right side of her head held up with a blue bow.

"Yes. You see, this town's people are more fishing folks than magic folks. I don't think many around here even know how to use magic. I run this shop for mages that through these parts." the store owner replied much to the girl's dismay.

"*sigh* So I came all this way for nothing."

"Don't be upset young lady, I hall the latest goods." He told while he rummaged through one of his drawers. "This ColorS* magic is popular. The girls really seem to like it. It lets you change the color of your clothes to anything you want." He said before using it himself to turn his clothes purple.

"I already have that~. What I really want are some powerful Gate Keys*~."

"Gate keys, huh? That's an unusual request." he said as he pulled out a small case, opening it to reveal a silver key.

"Ah, the little doggy!" she chimed.

"I'm sorry but it's no very powerful."

"I don't care, I really, really want it. So how much?"

"20,000 jewel."

"…"

"I'm sorry, how much was that again?"

"I said 20,000."

"…"

The girl then sat up on the edge of the desk, unzipped a bit of her vest, and gave him a sexy pose. "Come on, Handsome Man-san. How much is it really?" she winked at the clerk.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXX

"1,000 jewel." the blonde muttered to herself as she marched along a nearby bridge. "My good looks only got me a measly 1,000 jewel discount. That old fart must be going blind, that trick usually works. So much for using sex appeal." She was dragged out of her thoughts as she overheard a mob of girls cheering below the bridge and again when two girls walking past her spoke

"Did you hear? Salamander is in town"

"I know! I can't believe such a famous mage is here!"

"Salamander…" the blonde whispered for a moment before it dawned on her. "The mage that uses a brand of Fire magic you can't buy in stores!" she clapped her hands in delight.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Elsewhere-

"You seriously just left me on that damn train!" Natsu said in grumbled, frustrated tone as he and happy walked do one of the town's streets."

"It's not my fault you get sick when we use those forms of travel.' He retorted in a care free manner before he put on an amused grin. "Despite having that magic, *pffh pffh*."

"Keep talking like that and I'll switch you over to cheap, dry food, permanently." The man threatened, but having no impact.

"If you do that, I'll just go live with Lisanna. She won't deny me fish"

The pink hair mage's face then turn devil like. "If memory serves correct, she still owes me a life debt that I can cash in to fix that issue perfectly." This time he received a look of pure dread.

"I'LL SHUT UP ABOUT IT, I SWEAR, DON'T TAKE AWAY MY FISH!"

"Good, now let's see if we can find…" he was cut off midsentence, from the cheers coming from the crowd a few yard in front of him, seeming like a sigh of fate.

"Salamander-sama~!"

"So cool~!"

"I can't believe it's really him~"

The duo faced one another, both with joyful expressions.

In the center of the crowd of beautiful, young women stand a rather smug looking man. He had medium length, dark blue hair parted to the right side of his face with a simple tattoo over his left brow. He wore a white button shirt, red dress pants black suede shoes, and a dark mantel with what faintly resembled a white sun outline on both his left and right sides. On his right arm wore a gold bracelet and on his finger lay two rings, one featuring a pink heart with a navy background while other showed a crescent moon, one eye closed, in the night sky. Amongst all of the other girls, the blonde just stands there, staring in confusion.

'What, what is this feeling. My heart feels like it's trying to burst out of my chest. Is it- is it because he's a famous mage' she soon lost all reason as Salamander sent a look in her direction, making her closer to him before…

"FOUND YOU!" Natsu shouted as he made his way to the center of the crowd. This caused both an acquired silence and a certain traveler to come back to her senses, followed by him asking the man "…who the hell are you?

This shocked the man before he regained his previous composer. "I'm Salamander, surely you've heard of me- HEY WAIT!" he yelled at the pink traveler already walking away from the crowd.

The next thing Natsu knew, he was being attacked by a few angry groupies.

"How absurd!"

"Salamander-sama is a great mage, apologize right now."

"Now now ladies," Salamander tried calming the assailants, "I'm sure the boy didn't mean any harm."

"Oh Samander-sama~!" the mob then went back to being idol dazed except for one blonde sending him a hateful glair.

"Here, take this." He handed Natsu his personal autograph. "This will definitely impress your friends."

"No thank." He dead panned back before getting thrown into a pile of junk at to side of the road.

"Looks like we got another bust." Happy chirped.

"No shit." Natsu muttered

"I believe it's time for me to go, Red Carpet." Salamander stated before being lifted off the ground via a violet stream of fire. "I will be hosting a party on my yacht later tonight, you are all invited."

The hoard of women screamed in excitement as Salamander flew off where as Natsu and Happy simply stared on with emotionless expressions.

"Just who was that guy?" Natsu thought out loud.

"Not sure, but he was a real creep."

The pair turned their attention the blond haired girl who wasn't acting like a love struck psychopath. "Hi there~."

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXX

At a nearby restaurant-

"So your name is Lucy, thanks again for treating us to a meal." Natsu exclaimed as he and his little companion eat their respective meals. One consisting of thoroughly cooked meat, vegetables, pasta, and other toasted food. The other being a large pile of fish.

"No problem, but…" her eyes locked onto the bottle of Fire Whiskey *he has been filling his glass with. "don't you think it's a tad bit early to be drinking like that? Especially something so hot?"

"No need to worry, I happen to have an inhuman resistance to alcohol. Beside, all this place has is the cheap stuff that gust warms you up a little." he grinned as he held to body over to her. "Come on~, try some."

"I'll pass, but thank you." She replied nervously. 'Cheap stuff? That bottle alone cost me half of what I saved from that old shop keep, and even still I burn my tongue on it no matter how much I've tried to cool it down!"

"Any way, that Salamander guy sure play a dirty trick back there." Lucy continued on. "He used a charm* spell to get all those girls attention. It's type of ring magic that has been banned for years, I don't even know how he got it. The only reason I'm not under his spell now is because you walk in back there, so thanks"

"Charm, huh?" Natsu asked. 'The fun I could have with that.' he added as an afterthought with a blank stare, making Lucy think that he was confused about magic.

"Oh, I'm a mage by the way. Though I don't belong to any guild yet." she went on. "Right, guilds are these groups approved by the council where mages go to share information and find work. You're not considered a real mage until you join a guild."

Her face seemed to sparkle as she went further on "There tons of guild all over the world and the more popular ones are said to be harder to get into and the guild I want to get into is the most popular there is! They are greatest and are always featured in Sorcerer's Weekly*! Oh, if I can convince them to let me join I might just die!"

"Yeah…" Natsu said dryly.

"You sure talk a lot." Happy.

"Oh right, you came here looking for somebody." Lucy remembered.

"We're looking for Igneel." Happy chirped

"We heard there was a salamander in this town, but it turned out to be somebody else." Natsu said in a disappointed voice.

"Aye, he didn't look like a salamander at all"

"No kidding, I bet he can't even breathe fire."

"Wait," Lucy interrupted. "Your friend looks like a salamander?"

"Well yeah, obviously." The pink haired man said like it was common knowledge. "He is a fire dragon after all."

"WHA-…" she shrieked at the statement. "WHY THE HELL WOULD A FIRE DRAGON BE IN A TOWN!"

"There are possibilities!" he retorted. "He could have save the town from destruction, found injured along the outskirts of town, or some scumbags could have caged him and sold him to a circus!"

Lucy just stared at him with a grim expression. "… This has happened before, I take it."

"Aye, loads of time." Happy replied as Natsu became depressed.

She then got up and placed some money on the table. "Well, I should get going. Thanks again."

Natsu shortly snapped out of his depression as a thought dawned on him. "… Salamander the mage?"

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Hargeon Park-

On one of the bends lays the blonde mage reading the newest issue of Sorcerer'sWeekly. "Wow, looks like Fairy Tail is causing trouble again. Demon bandit gang wiped out but seven homes were destroyed, talk about overboard." She then flipped to the center fold to see the photos of a beautiful young woman in various swimsuits. She had sapphire like orbs for eyes and porcelain melon sized orbs for a chest. Her long, white hair flowed along her back, most tied up in a high pony tail with a dark ribbon at the back of her head and two bangs framing her face and reaching down to her chest. Though the photos were all professional, the look of her face seemed to bring out a somewhat naughty feeling. "Mirajane from Fairy Tail, she is so pretty. I wonder what you have to do to join. Do you have to apply or have an interview with them? Whatever it is, I'm defiantly going join Fairy Tail. It's the coolest guild ever."

"What was that? You want to join Fairy Tail?"

Lucy was shocked senseless as she heard a voice coming out of the bushes behind, only to find Salamander popping his head out.

"Salamander!"

"I have been looking all over for you." He said trying his best to sound cool. "I wanted to personally invite you to the party I'm having on my yacht tonight."

"Your charm spell won't work on me." She told the creep while pointing at him. "That magic's weakness is awareness, it doesn't work on people if they know you're using it."

"So you are a mage, just I thought. The offer still stand." He replied.

"Forget it! I wouldn't be caught dead a party hosted be a creep like you." She turned her back to him with her arms cross"

This hit a sensitive spot man. "A creep like me?" he utter with a sign reading 'creep' was impaled into his side.

"Your 'spell'~, trying to make yourself more popular~."

"Calm down, dear. It was all in good fun. I just wanted to feel like celebrity at my own party." He said, again acting cool.

"This just proves even big wizard can be idiots." The blonde told him, her back still facing him.

"You wish to join the Fairy Tail guild right? Have you ever heard of 'Salamander', one of Fairy Tail's elite wizards?"

Lucy gave him her undivided attention when he asked those questions. "Well yeah! You're telling me you're him, you're THAT Salamander?"

"That's right, and if you want I can probably put in a good word for you."

That moment, Lucy turned into a star struck idiot.

"I would love to go to your party tonight~!"

"Wow, that was easy."

"So you really think you can get me into Fairy Tail? You really mean it?"

"Sure thing, just don't say anything about the charm spell."

"I won't say a word~!" the girl squealed in delight.

"Good, see you at the party." And with that, he once again used his Red Carpet to fly away.

"You got it Salamander-sama!" Lucy called out before snapping out of her delusion. "Ah crap, I got charmed again. But… HURAY! I'm going to get into Fairy Tail!" 'I just have to keep my mouth shut and be nice to that sleaze ball until then.'

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXX

Night time, at one of the high points in town-

"The lead was a dead-end, but we did win a free meal from it, complements of a decent looking girl." Natsu said as he rest his back against the stone railing.

"Aye!" Happy replied as he sat on the railing next to him looking at the ocean, noticing the only boat sailing through it. "Hey, isn't that the boat Salamander's throwing his party on?"

"Hm?" he cocked his head to see the ship. "I can think of a lot of reasons way it's bound to be boring."

"You just want to go for the girls, but can't because of your motion sickness. *Pffh,pffh*" before their usual comedy routine could break out, they overheard the excited squeals coming from a group of girls close by.

"Look, its Salamander's ship!"

"I wish I got invited"

"Salamander?"

"You haven't heard? Salamander is a famous mage who's in town right now!"

"Yeah, he's a member of Fairy Tail!"

"Fairy Tail?" Natsu's expression turned dead serious as he then faced the ship at sea. "He's Salamander from Fairy Tail, huh?"

Salamander's ship, in a closed off room-

"So your name is Lucy." Salamander spoke as he sat in front of the blonde mage. "How beautiful."

Lucy was sitting at the opposite end of the small round table from the man. Her current outfit being an elegant red dress with a slit-cut on the right thigh. "Yeah, thanks."

"I would like to give a toast to your beauty." And with a snap of his fingers, drips of liquid from their glasses floated in the air. "Now open up wide, Lucy. Saver the taste of each flavorful drip as it enters your mouth."

'EWW' she deadpanned as she what she was told. 'Be strong. Just get this over with.' the small orbs came closer until she soon swatted them away.

"What do you think you're doing?" she glared at the man. "That's Sleep magic, isn't it."

Salamander smirked at this. "Impressive."

"Don't get the wrong idea. I really to join Fairy Tail, but I have no interest in being your girlfriend."

"Hmm,hmm. You are quite the handful."

At that moment, Salamander's men appeared from the back of the room with the female gests draped over their shoulders asleep.

"Wha-what is this?"

"Welcome to my ship." Their leader stated. "It would be best if you behaved until we reach Basco."

"Basco? I thought you were going to take me to Fairy Tail?"

"That was just an act to get you here and sell you off as a slave." His face turned twisted with sadistic pleasure.

"How dare you? You're just going to kidnap all of these girls?" she could not believe what was suddenly happening around.

"That's Salamander-sama for you." One of the lackeys said followed by another.

"This is one hell of a hall we have here."

"You basterd!" Lucy went to grab the key hanging on her right thigh until Salamander used a stream of violet flames to snatch them out of her hand.

"These are Gate Keys, so you're a Celestial wizard." He deduced. "Only the person contracted can use this magic, so these are basically worthless to me." And with that, he threw the keys out the window of the ship.

Lucy was left helpless, just like all the other girls on the ship. Tear appeared in the corners of her eyes as she looked at Salamander.

"You use your magic to take advantage of others. You're a disgrace to all mages."

A second latter, the walls of the ship behind Salamander burst open, as he turned to see what was happening, through the rubble, his eyes became fixated on the image of a man's silhouette in the moon light, seemingly floating in the air outside of the newly formed hole.

"Before I get things started, I have a quick question I would like to ask." The man spoke in a vexed voice, startling all of the crewmembers and causing one blonde to smile as she soon recognized it, along with his appearance and, to her luck, her keys held up by his right hand. "Which one of you is the owner of these?"

"Natsu!"

"Lucy?" he noticed her from within the crowd. "That's right, you some key just like these. I'm a bit surprised to see you here though."

"Long story… wait, HOW THE HELL ARE YOU FLOATING LIKE THAT?"

The crooks just stared at the two wide-eyed and jaws dropped at their conversation, even a blue cat with white, feathered wings joined in from behind the mop of pink hair.

"Hey, why are you here, Lucy?" Happy asked.

"Happy? Since when did you have wings?"

"As much as I would love to chat," Natsu said before extending his free hand and produced a large stream of purple fire toward the young girl.

"Wait a sec…" she was interrupted as the flames wrapped around her waist, but not burning her. "What?"

Natsu then pulled his arm back, and Lucy along with it, send her towards Happy and tossing her keys back to her.

"Happy, get her out of here, quick!"

"Aye, sir!" Happy chirped as he followed his order.

"We can't have them report this to the council." Salamander barked to his men.

"What about Natsu?" Lucy asked her carrier.

"Don't worry, Natsu will be fine if he can just stay off the ship?"

"Prominence Whip!" Salamander yelled out as his flames shot out at the two in the form tendrils, only for them to be backhanded by Natsu. His eyes shadowed from his bangs.

"I think you have bigger issues that you need to worry about at the moment." Natsu told them as smoke started to erupt from his mouth, along with a buildup of orange-red fire ready to burst out. This caused all the men of board to quiver in fear.

"What the hell is he?"

"Demon! A FUCKING DEMON!"

"We can't just leave Natsu and the girls alone!" Lucy shouted

"We have bigger a problem at the moment."

"What?"

Happy's wings poofed way. "I'm out of magic." He said plainly fell into the waters behind the boat screaming.

After diving into the water, Lucy brought her head up for air with a gold key in hand.

"Open, gate of the water bearer, Aquarius!" she shouted as a magic seal appeared in the water.

From out of the water rose a beautiful mermaid holding an urn in her hands. She had long blue hair, much like her fish-tail, large breasts, and dons a revealing bikini top. She has two gold armlets and wears a jewel circlet.

"Fish!" Happy cheered.

"Not for you." Lucy retorted.

"This is a cool summoning."

"Yeah. I use Celestial Magic, so I can summon spirits to help me out." She said with pride as a curtain other mage sensed the new presence.

"Now, wha…" Natsu turned his head to see who had arrived before flying over to the group yelling, "MERMAID~!

"All right, Aquarius." Lucy pointed to the ship. "I want you to use your power to push that ship to shore."

""tch"

"Did you just 'tch' me?" Lucy snapped

"I don't think you should make her angry." Happy suggested with a bit of worry in his voice.

"Let's get something straight." The spirit said sternly. "The next time you lose my key, your dead."

"It won't happen again." The two said in unison.

"What!" Natsu suddenly appeared next to them, pissed off at Lucy for some reason. "How dare you lose this beautiful water goddess' key?!"

"Who's side are you on?! When did you get here?! AND HOW THE HELL ARE YOU FLOATING?!"

"Aye, that was a triple take!"

"And who are you suppose to be?" the mermaid ask.

"Just a mage passing through." Natsu answered as he bowed to the woman. "Though, I would love to get to know you better."

"Just what the hell is wrong with you?" Lucy couldn't help but ask at the scene in front of her.

"This always happens when he uses of the Trimen's magic." Happy answered dryly.

Next moment, Aquarius started to spin her urn of water, causing an enormous wave that engulfed both the ship and the trio.

"Not me, too!" Lucy screamed out before they crashed into the port. The ship wrecked and everyone scattered around.

"You didn't have to sweep me up with the ship." She complained to her summoning.

"Oh, that was an accident." The mermaid apologized in a carefree tone. "I didn't mean to get the ship and that guy."

"YOU WERE AIMING FOR ME?!"

"Don't call me for a while. I'm going on vacation with my boyfriend." Aquarius said as she started to fade away. "My BOYfriend."

"Don't saw it twice!"

"I have an idea." Happy said after pulling his head out of the sand. "If you have so much trouble, how about you give her key to us?"

"I am sick and tired of this cat." Lucy muttered with her head dropped in frustration.

At the top of the wrecked ship, Natsu stood looking down at the goons digging themselves out of the rubble with a serious expression on his face.

"So you're Salamander of Fairy Tail, huh?"

"What is it to you?" Salamander asked. "Get him men!"

"I was fine with you using the same alias," Natsu, sliding of his black jacket as the two men approached him.

"Natsu!" Lucy called out while Happy sat on her solder.

"Don't worry, Natsu is a mage after all." He assured her as Natsu smacked the two away with his with his right arm, revealing a red tattoo on his shoulder in the shape of a fairy with a long tail.

"But to say you're from Fairy Tail as well just earned you a journey to hell, you damn FAKE!"

This caught everyone's attention from the sheer shock.

"Is this for real?" Lucy asked herself. "Natsu… is a member of Fairy Tail?"

"That mark!" one of the goons cried in terror. "He's the real deal Bora-san!"

"Don't call me that, dumbass!" the con artist snapped at the man.

"I've heard of him. He's Bora the Prominence." Happy recalled. "He was kicked out of the Titan Nose guild because he committed several thefts,"

"You damn bastard, it's time for you to die! Prominenece Typhoon!" Bora raised his arms to his sides as a vortex of violet flames were sent straight toward Natsu, engulfing him before creating a huge explosion."

"Natsu!" Lucy went to help him only to be blocked off by Happy's.

"Pathetic." Bora said as he turned his back to walk away, until…

"This tastes awful."

He turned back to see the man unaffected by the sheering heat and most astonishingly, seemed to be eating the flames.

"Are you really a fire mage? Cause the only redeeming part about your magic I can find is its appearance." Natsu commented as the last of the flames swirled into his mouth. His eyes gave off a quick glow of white light before returning to obsidian color.

"WHAT THE HELL IS HE?!" Bora screamed as he, his men, and Lucy looked at his in disbelief.

"Fire magic is the last thing you want to use on Natsu." came from Happy.

"I've never seen anything like that." Lucy continued to stare on.

"Now then, let's fan out some of the cannon fodder a bit." Natsu stated before cocking his head back.

"Fire Dragon's Roar!" a fierce torrent of flame came spewing from his mouth, taking out all of Bora's men.

"Hey, Bora!" one of the men forced out, doing his best to remain concuss. "I think I've heard of this guy. Pink hair, white scaled scarf, there's no doubt he's the real one!"

"Salamander." Lucy was stunned at this discovery.

"Come on." Natsu beckoned while giving Bora a taunting motion. "Show what you can do."

"Red Shower!" he shouted while at the same time using Red Carpet to fly away until he hit the back of his head against something hard.

When he turned around he found the word 'WALL' in the form of bricks hanging in the air, repeated all around the crash site. "When did these things get here?!"

"Lucy began to sweat as she watched the battle continue. "He eats fire and then attacks with it? Is that some type of spell?"

"He has dragon lungs to breathe fire, dragon scales to dissolve fire, and dragon claws to attack with fire." Happy explained. "His special brand of Fire Magic allows his body to take on all of the qualities of a dragon. It's an ancient spell that isn't used now a days."

"Seriously? And the whole flying thing and those words are a part of it too."

"No. Those were all come spells he acquired through his Progression Magic." Happy continued as Bora unleashed Hell Prominence, a condensed beam of violet flames at Natsu who just stood in the same place he was at the beginning of the battle, taking in all of the attacks thrown his way.

"Progression Magic?" Bora, now throwing a skull faced ball of his flames at his opponent only for the traveling mage to extend his left arm in front of it and grabbing it before consuming it.

"Aye, it enables him to process the world around at a heightened level. His best known use of it is for gaining spells he has come a cross and likes." Natsu finished consuming the orb as his eyes once again gave off a white light.

"Igneel taught him both of these forms of magic. The power the kill dragons, Dragon Slayer, and the power to further one's potential, The Wanderer."

"I think I have seen enough." Natsu said as a magic seal appeared above his right hand until it vanished in puff of fire. In its place was a black gripped, double edged sword with a matching, jagged guard and a red flame pattern running down the blades length.

"W-What are going to do." The imposter asked as the onslaught of fire blasts drained his magic to the point he had to land on the ground. Natsu then drew his sword back as a jet of flame erupted along the blade. "GYAAHHH!"

"Dragon Sword Art:" The next moment Natsu appeared behind Bora, this time his sword was pointed forward and the flames were gone.

'Huh?'

"Sly Hunter." As soon as he swung his sword to his right side, a tower of fire from where the fraud was standing, trapping him in a hellish prison until they died down seconds later. He fell to the ground, covered in burn marks and ash."

"H-ey? Natsu." Lucy called out to him with a sigh of fear in her voice. "That guy, is he…"

"Relax." He interrupted her coolly as he put on his black jacket once again, not facing her. His sword was nowhere to be seen. "I only grazed him with that last attack. Nobody is dead"

"I see." She sighed in relief before her attention was drawn off to the sound of marching feet. It only took a few seconds before the source of the noise was revealed to be a battalion of soldiers heading their way. "It's the army!"

The next thing she new, the real salamander was running in the opposite direction, dragger her with him. "Crap, time to go back on the journey!"

"Hey, what are you-?"

"You wanna join Fairy Tail, right?"

Lucy looked at him wide-eyed when she heard those words. He turned his head at her with a smirk.

"Then lets go."
