The Happiest Days of Our Lives

Summary: For 24 hours, Natsu and Gray must endure the sweetest temptation. [NaLu] [Gruvia]

Part II – Goodbye Blue Sky

Gray fled out of town to a local forest nearby, briskly maneuvering through the trees and shrubs to get away as far as he could.

He touched her. He had lost control and touched her, kissed her and damn it, her scent was still fresh on his skin with her taste on his tongue. Worst of all was his fucking hard-on, throbbing in his pants.

Just a second longer, he would've—

"Gray-sama! Wait!"

He cringed. Just like a bloodhound.

Closing his eyes, he allowed his pace to slow down enough for her to reach him. As her footsteps drew closer, she placed a gentle hand on his back, making him flinch. "Gray-sama—"

"Don't touch me," he growled, jerking away from her grasp.

Juvia recoiled, hurt flashing across her eyes. Her hand slowly retreated to her chest as a frown twisted her lips. "…Did Juvia upset Gray-sama?"

He steeled himself, ignoring how fragile and disheartened she sounded. "Just leave me alone."

Her heart sank as tears welled in her eyes.

"Juvia's sorry," she whispered, her voice breaking. Gray's stomach churned. "Juvia just wanted to show Gray-sama how much she loves him… but now… she didn't mean to…" A choked sob escaped her, causing Gray to glance over his shoulder. "Juvia didn't mean to make Gray-sama hate her…!"

Tears rolled down her cheeks, making his eyes widen.

"Hey, wait," he said, turning around and instinctively reaching for her, "I don't hate you—"

"Then why won't Gray-sama touch Juvia?" she wailed, covering her face with her hands.

"I can't," he stressed. "You're not in your right mind, Juvia!"

"Juvia is!" she cried, pounding her fists weakly against his chest. "Why does Gray-sama doubt Juvia's love?"

"You're not listening—" he gritted through clenched teeth, only to be interrupted by her loud bawling.

Damn it, he thought, glancing around him. She was being too damn loud! Someone was bound to find them, and if Erza heard that he made her cry…

Gray frantically grabbed the back of her head, bringing her face to his and kissing her. She gasped as his mouth slanted over hers, stifling her sobs while his other hand held her waist, drawing her shaking form flush against him.

When her trembling died down, he pulled away, panting quietly. Her eyes fluttered open in a daze.

"Gray-sama kissed Juvia…" she whispered, brushing her fingers against her lips.

"Listen," he breathed, his husky voice making her pupils dilate. He rattled her shoulders when her eyes grew distant. "I don't hate you, okay? I just can't touch you."

"Gray-sama… kissed Juvia…"

He rolled his eyes. "Did you hear me?"

The girl nodded numbly.

"You understand?"

She nodded once more.

Gray hung his head and sighed, dropping his hands from her shoulders. "Good."

But then she stepped close and pressed a kiss to his neck.

Alarmed, Gray froze. "Juvia, I said—"

"Juvia heard you," she whispered, running her hands up his chest. His body shivered. "Gray-sama can't touch Juvia." She kissed his jaw. "But… Gray-sama didn't say Juvia can't touch Gray-sama."

She pressed her lips against his. Gray felt his stomach drop.

God, this girl was going to be the death of him.

But what a way to die…

Suddenly, Juvia launched herself at him. Gray stumbled back onto the forest ground, hands against the floor as he steadied both of them. His eyebrows shot up, surprised—since when was she aggressive with him?

But as she straddled his hips, kissing him fervently, Gray realized he sort of liked this dominant side to her. He watched her under half-lidded eyes, mesmerized by the way her tongue moved in and out his mouth. This aggressiveness was so different, so unlike her, but his body jerked in anticipation of what she was going to do next and his hands itched to hold her. When she moaned against him, he submitted to the pleasurable shivers coursing through his body and buried a hand in her hair, tracing her lips with his tongue.

Gradually, she pulled back and breathed, her gaze locked on his mouth while his eyes studied her face. Her cheeks were flushed a rosy pink, her soft hair framing her face in loose curls. Her glossy eyes were fringed with thick lashes and her full lips were tinted red from friction.

Suddenly, his mind went blank.

She looked so… pretty.

When her eyes glanced up to meet his, something burned in his chest, and he was kissing her again.

He loved the feelings of her hands in his hair and her lips pressed against his. It felt good—it felt natural. He smirked at the cute little noises she made when his tongue brushed against her lower lip before slipping inside her mouth. Her head tilted and their tongues tangled in a fiery, wild kiss that left them both breathless.

They pulled apart and panted, her hand on his cheek and her forehead against his. Her eyes were still closed while Gray looked at her face.

He watched eagerly as her lashes slowly rose, revealing her pretty blue eyes, dazed with desire.

Something feral in him snapped.


"I want you."

Her eyes sparked while Gray cursed, closing his eyes to gather his scrambled thoughts.

"No, wait, I mean—"

He grunted as her lips trailed down his neck, sucking on his pulse while her hands massaged his shoulders. He shuddered against her, his body turning ice cold with every kiss and touch.

"Juvia… we shouldn't…"

But he was groaning and tilting his head back, letting her tongue roam along his neck as his chest heaved in jagged breaths. She kissed his collarbone and chest while her hand moved between his legs, palming him over his shorts. Gray hissed a curse, his hips jerking against her. He should be stopping her, they really shouldn't be doing this, but he was rendered helpless to her mouth and hands.

Fucking hell, he thought, sneering at his groin.

Juvia suddenly squeezed, making him inhale sharply. She pressed a kiss to his chest before dipping her head and taking his zipper between her teeth. Gray watched her, hypnotized as she pulled it down with her eyes locked with his.

Her gaze lowered and she licked her lips. His breath caught in his throat, and next thing he knew, he was in her hot, wet mouth. His head fell back as he gave a low groan, ripping blades of grass from the soil.

She sucked and swirled her tongue along the underside of his member, making him release a string of curses. He watched her with heavy-lidded eyes as she bobbed her head up and down, licking and stroking and moaning and squeezing.

Oh man, they were in the middle of the fucking woods—anyone could walk in on them! But the thrill of getting caught sent such a rush to his head and god, he was so turned on.

Juvia released him briefly, her hand rubbing fast while her tongue swirled around the tip. Gray growled and shut his eyes, thrusting into her mouth.

"Ngh… fuck…"

She gripped the base tighter while she licked up the sides of his length. He moaned, jerking his hips forward as she teasingly brushed her tongue against the head before running it flat from the base to the tip. He sucked in a breath through clenched teeth, biting his lower lip to stifle a groan.

Erza was going to kill him… but right now, he couldn't care less.

Opening his eyes, his gaze fell to her chest, spotting the bite mark he'd left on the curve of her breast. The sight of his claim gave him an overwhelming urge to continue where he left off.

Panting, he lifted his hand and combed his fingers through her hair before trailing along the curve of her back to the zipper of her dress. He gripped it and yanked it down, making Juvia squeak cutely as she looked at him and took her mouth away.

"Gray-sama?" she asked, catching the straps slipping off her shoulders.

His eyes locked with hers. "Come here."

She blushed prettily, shyly avoiding his eyes as she shifted closer. Gray chuckled—one moment, she was blowing his mind and the next, she was fidgeting again. He grabbed her waist and pulled her towards him, making her swing her leg over his lap and grip his strong shoulders. She gasped as her panties rubbed directly against his arousal, whimpering softly as Gray kissed her cheek.


"I won't be gentle," he warned, pushing the front of her dress down to her waist.

She blushed, nodding bashfully. "Juvia understands."

"I want you."

She shivered as his hands skimmed her bare sides. "Please…"

He leaned forward and swirled his tongue around the bite mark on her breast, eliciting a soft whimper as Juvia closed her eyes, tightening her grip on his shoulders.

He lifted his head and kissed her, pushing her on her back and kicking his pants off his legs. Juvia moaned, weaving her fingers through his hair as his tongue swerved inside her mouth. His hands rubbed her soft thighs, tracing patterns along her skin before slowly gliding up her torso. He broke the kiss and cupped her full breasts, delighting himself in her gasp.

His fingers rhythmically squeezed as she writhed and moaned beneath him. Her fingers curled in his hair as her back arched, her head tipping back against the floor.

"Gray-sama," she whimpered as he sucked her pulse before trailing kisses along her jaw to her ear.

"You were right," he breathed.

"R… Right…?" she panted, whimpering when his hands kneaded her breasts.

He placed kisses down her throat before dragging his mouth lower and sinking his teeth into the curve of her neck, making her cry out.

"I do bite," he murmured against her skin, running his tongue soothingly over the wound.


He kissed down her collarbone, his fingers roughly massaging her breasts as she squirmed wildly beneath him. His tongue dipped between her cleavage before flicking repeatedly across a rosy tip, eliciting breathless moans from the girl as she arched herself further into his hands.

She was as soft as he imagined as he sucked rigorously, loving the throaty calls of his name. His hand squeezed while his tongue swirled around her nipple, making her body twist and turn as her nails scored over his hair. He kissed her other breast, running his tongue flat over the rosy tip before biting gently.

Her skirt bunched around her hips with all her squirming, exposing her white panties. He slipped his hand between her legs and cupped her center, making her gasp and tense at the new sensation.

His mouth continued to suck her breast while his fingers slowly teased her womanhood, rubbing through the thin cotton fabric. Juvia trembled, desperately clutching his shoulder as her nails dug into his skin. He kissed her breast before lifting his head and looking at her flushed face, smirking wickedly.

"Ohh—please…" she whined, lifting her hips off the ground and grinding against his hand. "More… Juvia needs more…"

He rubbed his hand harder against her, making her toss her head back and cry out. His fingers dipped into her, her panties creating a frustrating barrier as his thumb pressed circles against her clit.

She was moaning loudly, her chest heaving in deep breaths. Gray ran his tongue along the arch of her neck before capturing her lips.

Juvia cupped his cheeks and tilted her head, moaning into him. His mouth slanted, kissing her hungrily while his other hand palmed the guild mark on her thigh, producing a shiver from the girl. Juvia pulled away from his ravenous mouth, panting as her lashes hung low over her eyes.

"Gray-sama…" she whispered. "Take Juvia… make Juvia yours…"

Trapped between his arms with flushed cheeks, swollen lips and dazed eyes—how could he refuse such a tempting request?

Just when he was about to oblige her, make her scream out his name for all of Fiore to hear, a moment of guilt struck his lust-filled mind.

"…I can't."

This wasn't Juvia. It felt like her, tasted like her, but she wasn't really here. No way in hell was he going to take advantage of her while she was under some stupid potion, no matter how much he wanted her. With heavy reluctance, he closed his eyes resolutely and began pushing himself off her.

"No!" she cried suddenly, wrapping her arms around his neck. "Don't go!"

He gripped her wrist and averted his gaze. "Juvia…"

"Don't leave Juvia!" she pleaded. "Please… stay…"

He looked at her, eyebrows furrowed in confusion. She almost sounded… normal. Her eyes glistened with a watery sheen and her lower lip trembled under her teeth, but what struck him the most was the look in her eyes—not full of lust or wanton need… but shining with pure, unadulterated affection.

"Juvia loves you…" she whispered brokenly, caressing his face. "Please… love Juvia too…"

He stared, eyes narrow, trying so hard to understand.

Her eyes closed, a tear slipping down her cheek as her arms fell dejectedly from his neck.

His eyes flashed, and something burned in his chest.

This girl… this silly, silly girl would truly be the death of him.

Slowly, he leaned down and gently pressed his mouth against hers. Juvia gasped softly, her lashes fluttering open. Her eyes glistened as she cupped his cheeks, ardently returning his kiss.

He drew back and slipped his hand beneath her panties, pushing his fingers inside of her. Juvia moaned, clutching his upper arm and closing her eyes as Gray brushed his mouth against her cheek.

"Open your eyes," he murmured huskily.

She whimpered but obeyed, looking at his face. His gaze locked with hers as he kissed her neck, then her chest. His fingers pumped inside her as his mouth traveled lower, making Juvia whine and squirm. Her heart raced as he kissed her naval before removing his hand from her center. He slid her panties down her shapely legs before tossing her thighs over his strong shoulders and settling on his stomach.

His eyes flashed to her face, meeting her blushing gaze briefly. Juvia's breath hitched, her toes curling as he buried his face between her legs.

His tongue took a slow, heavy lick over her core, producing a loud moan from the girl. Her body shuddered as he tasted, lapping up the creamy essence spilling from her. He licked his upper lip, finding her sweet taste incredibly addicting.

Juvia trembled violently, her thighs clenching around him as she clutched the grass, desperately holding on to her sanity. She bucked her hips when he parted her inner lips and ran his slick tongue inside.


His tongue was merciless, unyielding—each lick sent waves of wild pleasure coursing through her. She gasped and turned her head to the side, grabbing the grass beside her face.

Her body squirmed and thrashed against him, but his hands adamantly held her thighs down as his mouth continued its work. Tears pricked the corner of her eyes as she looked down to the mess of dark hair between her legs.

His tongue circled her clit before he sucked vigorously, making Juvia cry out his name. She breathed heavily, her pants jagged and irregular. Her hand buried in his hair, tugging as she arched her neck and closed her eyes.

Lifting his gaze, Gray glanced above her heaving chest to her erotically blissful face. She held her other hand to her lips, muffling all the sounds coming from her. Her hand tightened in his hair as her moans raised an octave.

He brought his thumb to her clit, rubbing in circles as his tongue dipped inside. Juvia screamed in raw pleasure, tossing her head back. Her hips lifted and lowered with his mouth, heightening the delicious shivers coursing through her body as she pushed his face into her. Gray sucked her dry, making her cry out his name as she hit her release.

He kissed her inner thigh before sitting up and wiping his mouth with the back of his hand. Juvia breathed, trembling as she stared at him in a haze.

Just like his fantasy, her eyes were wild, glazed over with raw desire—but her eyes also held genuine affection, and his heart pounded harder.

He ran his fingers along her lovely legs before taking her hands in his and pinning them above her head. Juvia wrapped her legs around his waist and ground his pelvis against her, making her whimper while Gray grunted, grinding against her once more.

She looked at him, in her beauty of rosy cheeks and tousled hair, and smiled. Gray drank in her affectionate smile before dipping his head and kissing her, feeling her melt into him. He settled himself between her legs and rocked his hips forward, earning a throaty moan from the girl as she kissed him harder.

He moved again as she broke the kiss, tossing her head back and gasping his name. The heels of her feet dug into his lower back as his pace quickened, his body hard and cool against hers.

A feral groan ripped through clenched teeth as his hands tightened their grip on hers. Juvia gave a throaty moan, crying out with every rock of his hips. One hand fell to the curve of her back, shoving her further against him. She clutched his shoulder before raking her nails down his back, leaving thin pink trails behind. Gray growled and grit his teeth as Juvia's chest rose and fell with each breath.

His ragged pants fanned her skin as she pushed his hair from his face. He looked at her and she smiled beautifully, her eyes gleaming with genuine, ardent affection. He leaned down and kissed her, muffling her moans with a sweep of his tongue.

Juvia rolled her hips, meeting his every thrust. She cried out his name as he kissed her neck, running his tongue along her throat. Her body trembled before she arched her back, pressing her chest against his.

She was warm and overwhelmingly tight, consuming him in waves of euphoric pleasure as he moved wildly against her. Her smooth skin created delicious friction against his hard body as her gorgeous legs locked even tighter around his hips.

She whimpered as he took her legs from his waist and bent them to her chest, giving him better access. He thrust deep inside her, setting another wild pace as Juvia moaned shamelessly loud from the raw pleasure.

"Juvia," Gray groaned, panting heavily. "Say my name. Say it."

The girl screamed, her hair clinging to her damp skin. "Gray… Gray-sama…!"

"Again," he growled, angling his hips before shoving roughly inside.

She cried out, grinding viciously against him. "Gray-sama, Gray-sama, Gray-sama—"

He hissed a curse as her muscles clenched around him, burying his face in the crook of her neck with her moans hot on his ear.

"This isn't a fantasy," he breathed, though he wasn't sure if he was talking more to her or himself.

He kissed her skin, running his tongue along the swells of her breasts as Juvia whimpered and trembled. Her hands traveled up his arms before sliding down his powerful back, gripping his firm backside. His muscles flexed against his skin as he rocked against her.

Gray closed his eyes and grunted, feeling her hands cup his face. His eyes opened as her tongue swept over her upper lip.

"So… good…" she moaned, lashes hovering low over her eyes as she met his intense gaze.

He groaned at her sultry voice, grabbing the back of her neck and kissing her greedily. His tongue clashed against hers as she gave a throaty whimper, curling her fingers in his hair.

Gray tugged her lower lip before breaking the kiss, glancing at her face. Juvia tilted her head back, her wavy blue hair spilling against the grassy floor as she moaned at every jerk of his hips.

She opened her eyes a little and looked at him, breathing his name as her fingers fluttered against his lips. Gray took her hand and sucked the tips of her fingers, making the girl shiver as she gave a happy, weary smile. He held her hand and placed it beside her face, giving her a searing kiss as his mouth slanted over hers.

Juvia squeezed his hand as she pulled away and screamed, her hips bucking against him. Her muscles clenched around him, making him growl as he moved against her. A powerful spasm shot down his back as he grit his teeth, grunting. Juvia traced his collarbone with her finger, moaning breathlessly as he hit his limit. He bit into her shoulder and groaned, giving a final rock of his hips before collapsing on top of her, catching his breath in ragged pants. She ran her fingers through his hair, humming blissfully.

Rolling off of her, Gray landed on his back and placed a hand on his forehead. Reality slowly descended upon him as the haze in his head cleared, gradually revealing the direness of the situation.

"Shit," he breathed, his heartbeat pounding restlessly against his chest as Juvia giggled. "Shit, shit, shit."

The girl smiled brightly, curling up at his side. "Gray-sama's amazing—"

"—Erza's going to kill me—"

"—just like Juvia's dreams and more."

"—I'm so fucked."

"Just like Juvia," she giggled, nuzzling his chest.

"No, Juvia—I'm serious." He sat up, hunching forward as he passed a hand through his messy dark hair.

Worry filled her eyes as Juvia sat up with him, clutching a hand to her chest. "Is Gray-sama upset with Juvia? Was Juvia… not good enough?"

"It's not you," he muttered, cursing under his breath. "Erza's going to kick my ass."

The girl tilted her head, pulling the straps of her dress back up her arms. "Why?"

Gray paused, choosing his words. How did Mirajane put it? "I, uh, 'took advantage of you when you weren't in your right mind?'''

"But, Juvia is—"

"No, you're not. You're under some stupid potion."

She blinked, smoothing out the skirt of her dress. "Potion?"

"That's why I wasn't supposed to touch you, because you're not… you," he mumbled, scratching the back of his head. Well, so much for that.

He glanced at her as she gently touched the marks scattered along her neck and shoulders, catching her wince as she massaged her skin.

He frowned. "Did I hurt you?"

Juvia flinched before quickly beaming a bright, reassuring smile. "No, of course not!" Leaning over, she pressed a chaste kiss to his cheek. "Juvia didn't mind."

He gripped her forearm and shifted away. "Uh… maybe you shouldn't get too close, in case we… you know…"

"Why?" she asked, tilting her head. "Because of this?"

He watched her slip something out of the pocket of her dress, squinting at the item. "Is that…"

"The potion?" she finished.

He stared at the object between her thumb and index finger—a small vial filled with pink liquid.

"What the—how do you have that?" he asked in disbelief. "I thought you were hit with it during your mission."

Juvia blinked. "No, Lucy and Juvia caught the man. The potion was the reward!"

Gray's eye twitched. "What the fuck kind of reward is that?"

"The man said the potion 'makes innermost desires a reality.' Lucy drank hers, but Juvia already knew what she wanted."

His eyes widened. "You never took it?"

She shook her head. "Juvia told you she was okay!"

His face paled. "But—everything you said—"

The girl smiled shyly. "Lucy's behavior got Juvia excited," she murmured, scooting over to him and nuzzling her head on his shoulder. "Juvia just wanted Gray-sama to know how much she really loves him."

Gray stared blankly, processing all the information. "Holy shit…"

"Here," she said as she took his hand, placing the vial in his palm and closing his fingers around it. "Juvia was saving the potion for Gray-sama. Juvia just wants Gray-sama to be happy."

He eyed it, swishing the liquid side to side before scoffing. "Keep it," he muttered, handing it back to her. "Sell it or something. I don't need it."

She blinked, tentatively taking it from him. "…Is Gray-sama mad?"

"Hell yeah I am."

Juvia flinched at his stern voice, ducking her head remorsefully and placing her hands in her lap.

Gray scowled. "This whole time—you were fine, and I thought you weren't and—"

"—Juvia's sorry—"

"—we didn't have to end up at a fucking forest."

Juvia blinked, shyly lifting her gaze. "…Gray-sama?"

He sniffed, whipping his head away with a light blush dusting his cheeks.

"If you… do that again… we take it to my place, alright? And everything stays in my apartment."

Juvia giggled, tucking a strand of hair behind her ear as her lips curved into an alluring smile.

"Juvia knew Gray-sama liked it," she murmured, kissing his mouth.

He scoffed, looking away. "Whatever."

She smiled brightly, settling herself in his lap and nestling her head under his chin.

Gray sighed, relaxing against her warm body as he breathed in the light scent of her hair.

The corner of his lips twitched in an amused grin.

This silly girl was definitely going to be the death of him.
