I just remembered a chapter doesn't have to be long to be a good chapter!
Disclaimers: Sadly I don't own Fairy Tail. The awesome Hiro Mashima does! STANDARD DISCLAIMERS APPLIED!
Words are said for a reason, which soon morphs into something more...
We all know how Team Natsu was formed right? Natsu and Happy intruded Lucy's apartment the next day after they helped Macao from the Vulcan trouble he had. But, Natsu and Happy had said they wanted Lucy to be 'part' of their mission only to be a decoy of some sort during the Everlue mansion mission they did. And so on... Although no one knew at first, but a certain white haired take-over bar mage had seen certain changes on a certain fire dragon slayer mage's behavior.
Her trained eyes had seen how the boy moves around the new member of their guild. The young blonde with adorable doe-brown eyes had a certain spunk in her that made everyone in the guild like her in their own accord. On their own individual first impression on her. She was pretty, cute for some and adorable to others. To the fire mage? She was labeled as a 'weirdo'.
With all her years of growing up with the boy she had never seen him actually join others on missions, nor him inviting them to join whatever mission he would be taking on. He and Happy was the only team that she knew that time, but with the appearance of a certain blonde named Lucy. The two(mostly Natsu) had immediately invited her to be a team with him and Happy. Mira had already gotten the gut feeling that time, but she was certain the fire mage didn't, it made her grin. He unconsciously held possession of the girl he had brought with him to the guild. He'd go spouting all about nakama this, nakama that. But the word nakama would always strike something in his eyes whenever he pertained it to his new teammate.
"Lucy! Let's go on a mission!" Natsu said as he spotted the blonde by the bar with Mira, who was wiping a glass. Turning around her eyes twinkled at the mission in thought of a huge amount of jewels, "Okay!" She exclaimed, hopping out of the stool, stopping in front of him for a minute. "Ehh? Where are the others?" She asked, her head tilting to the side in a cute way. Inwardly Natsu bit his tongue, his mind racing with the words 'she looks cute'.
"Erza's still on a mission, Stripper got dragged by that stalker girl he always has around" He answered, his arm hooking on her shoulder, steering her in the direction of the mission board. "How about Happy?" She asked after feeling something was missing other than Gray and Erza. "He's out on a little play date with Charle" a grin plastered on his lips.
"Ohh..." She trailed off, somewhat like in a daze. Natsu didn't care, he had thought Lucy was pretty, very pretty these past few days. He was thrilled to know that Erza was on a mission and Gray was dragged to who knows where by Juvia. He took this chance and asked Happy to not join them on this mission. "Then I guess it's just the two of us then!" Lucy squealed running out of his grasps and beaming to the mission board, her eyes immediately raking for a mission that'll have high paying but not too hard. Natsu sighed as an amused smile appeared on his lips, he headed to the bar ready to order himself a fire drink and a strawberry smoothie for Lucy.
"I'm thinking along the lines of sweeping her of her feet" Mira's voice snapped him out of his thoughts about Lucy and him alone on the mission. His face heated up, "I-I d-don't know what you're talking about!" he stuttered as he attempted to play it cool. Mira smirk at him, her eyes telling him I know what you're up to..
"Natsu! I found a mission! Let's go!" Lucy said as she waved a flyer in front of him. she skipped over to Mira to have her stamp it, and then headed out the guild. Her smile never left her lips. Natsu's onyx eyes watched her figure get smaller and smaller the farther she go. "H-Hey! Wait for me!" He wailed bolting after the blonde, a grin soon stretching on his own lips. Mira who had watched Natsu for a long time saw him finally starting to act like a man little by little.
"I should start planning their wedding" She told herself, giggling at the thought.
"Lushiiii! Help pl-please..." Natsu whined in between throwing up and holding his stomach in. Lucy giggled at his sorry state, "Alright, but don't throw up on me" She warned, her gentle hands held his head and placed it on top of her legs. Soon her fingers were in his hair, massaging his scalp ever so slowly. Natsu's ragged breathing turned into even and relaxed. His eyes stared up at her own brown orbs, a sweet smile on his lips.
"Thanks Luce, you're the best" He said, nuzzling affectionately on her stomach. He breathed in her delicious and addictive scent, he loved it. He loved her. "That tickles" She giggled, her hand momentarily stopping from its massage on his scalp, in response Natsu nudge her to continue.
"Love you Luce" He said, nuzzling once more on her stomach when he felt his face heat up as the blood rushed up to form a blush.
Had he ruined their friendship? That wasn't good. What if she didn't like him back? He'd- Feeling warm lips on his forehead made him snap out of his momentary malfunction. "Silly... I love you too" Lucy said, smiling sweetly down at him, a cute giggle escaping her lips as soon as she saw his ridiculously adorable happy face.
