Sure thing! I hope you like it!
“I dunno why you want to go here…” Natsu grumbled quietly, shuffling his feet along the pavement.
“Because I happen to enjoy looking at art and you said you’d come with me!” Lucy retorted, walking ahead of him while swinging her arms gently.
“I know,” Natsu groaned, “but it’s just going to be so boring…”
“Hey, how do you know? You might actually enjoy it. It’s just an art museum, Natsu, it’s not going to kill you.” Lucy rolled her eyes at his overdramatic mood.
“Fine but I never promised to be happy about this.” Natsu pouted and Lucy giggled at the cute little face. The pair finally made it to the Fiore Kingdom Art Antheneum stepping through the large wooden doors.
“Wow! Even the lobby looks amazing, I can’t believe I’ve never been here before!” Lucy exclaimed in awe.
“I can believe I’ve never been here before…” Natsu muttered and Lucy scowled at him.
“Come on, Natsu. Please don’t be all mopey the entire time we’re here!” Lucy begged him with her huge brown eyes and Natsu sighed, he couldn’t say no to her.
“Fine. But just for you Luce, you better feel special.” Natsu smirked and Lucy regained her bubbly composure, cheeks tinted pink. They paid their entrance fee which Natsu had complained about because it was 4,000 jewel but was quickly shut up by another death glare from his blonde companion. The two idly walked through the hushed halls of the museum where Lucy would occasionally make an approving little chirp at something she’d like or point out something interesting to her.
“Hey, I want to go see the Ancient ruins of Fiore, they have a huge exhibit here!” Lucy tugged on Natsu’s hand in the direction to a large room while he protested but was quickly quieted by the site he saw.
“Wow… There’s certainly a lot of stuff in here.” Natsu pondered, taking in all the pieces around him. There were clay pots with etchings on them, animal statues adorned with emeralds and other jewels, and weapons carved from bones and stone.
“Isn’t it great?” Lucy asked breathlessly, “They’ve even got sarcophagi from across the world!” Lucy pointed out in an adjoined room where they had an exhibit from Desierto*.
“Hey, Lucy! This one kinda looks like Happy!” Natsu snickered pointing to a statue of a black cat with a scarab collar and gold jewelry hung from it’s neck. This one was different from the others though, it looked like an Exceed rather than a regular house cat.
“Huh, yeah it does look like him. That’s strange… Exceeds supposedly only have been on Earth Land for about 15 years… Maybe they somehow visited in ancient times?” Lucy wondered out loud as they walked through the darkened room. They looked at the Pharaoh coffins and Lucy admired all of the golds, blacks, and turquoises they used to beautify everything in their era. They moved on to a long room with statues from Bellum* carved from white marble.
“It’s pretty amazing how they could get everything so lifelike when it’s all carved from stone.” Lucy mused and Natsu grunted in response. He couldn’t help feeling a fondness for the way Lucy was looking at everything with such happiness, he thought it was kind of adorable. Natsu stopped dead in his tracks when he caught sight of a few rather less than clothed statues.
“Lucy,” Natsu tried to hold in a bursting laugh and managed to just sound like he was choking making Lucy whip around in response.
“What’s wrong?” She exclaimed in alarm until she realized he was laughing and them squinted at him. “What’s so funny?”
“Look.” Natsu stated simply while pointing to one of the marble statues in front of him. Lucy stared at the statue in confusion and looked back at him for an explanation.
“Look!” He hissed and snickered, “They’re naked!” Natsu’s laugh got a bit louder turning his cheeks red. Lucy puffed out her cheek and frowned.
“You are such a child, Natsu!” Lucy scolded him turning back to the sculpture. Though hearing Natsu’s little giggles made her mouth twitch upward and when Natsu noticed that it made him laugh even more.
“You think it’s funny too!” Natsu loudly whispered in a singsongy voice while receiving a defiant look from Lucy.
“No I don’t.” Lucy shot back stubbornly but Natsu could see she was desperately trying to hold back a smile.
“Look Luce, look… They even have their things!” Natsu could barely breathe at this point, clutching his sides trying to not be too loud.
“Natsu!” Lucy chided but her own throat let a little chuckle out.
“Just imagine this,” Natsu gestured to the statue, “They had to sit there and carve out all that stuff… They even had to carve out the boobies!” Natsu laughed out loud that time earning themselves glares from passerby’s.
“Shh!” Lucy growled but she couldn’t hold back her own chortles.
“B-but they’ve got, ha-ha, everything!” Natsu’s voice was reaching a dangerous octave and Lucy clasped her hand over his mouth.
“They’re going to kick us out if you don’t be quiet!”
“Oh man, Happy would love this! Totally worth it to come…” Natsu sighed, his face red from laughing while Lucy’s hand was still glued to his mouth. They had managed to end up in front of a statue of a couple.
“Oh my god…” Lucy squeaked out as they both stared at the statue. Natsu started to shake before sound even came out as he laughed loudly. The statue of the two were completely naked as well while the male sensually kissed the neck of the female.
“Natsu shut the hell up!” Lucy laughed, her own cheeks red from embarrassment and laughter. Other museum goers glared at them and shuffled out of the room to the point where it was just them.
“Wow, the ancients really knew how to make some great art!” Natsu concluded and Lucy just shook her head.
“I guess so…” Lucy agreed but then froze as she realized she was still clinging to Natsu from covering his mouth before. She sprang back, her entire face almost red while Natsu looked at her curiously.
“Err… Maybe we should move on?” Lucy suggested but Natsu had a dangerous glint in his eyes.
“Why, this room is kinda funny. Don’t you think what they’re doing looks kind of interesting?” He questioned stalking up to Lucy with a mischievous face. Lucy stared him down, unsure of what his next move was going to be.
“W-what do you mean Natsu? Let’s just move to the next room and try not to disrupt anyone else.” Lucy began to cautiously walk on but Natsu grabbed her from behind causing her to squeal.
“I am a man from Ancient Bellum! I must attack the neck of this woman!” Natsu declared in a mock voice and then nuzzled his face in the crook of Lucy’s neck gently placing his lips on her throat.
“Ah, Natsu?” Lucy’s voice hiked up a pitch and he pulled away from her with a light blush on his face. “You done?”
“No.” Natsu answered in a serious tone, eyes burning. “Let’s get out of here.” He scooped her up over his shoulder, with much protesting from Lucy, and carried her to the exit.
“B-but Natsu! The rest of the museum…”
“Don’t worry, we’ll come back, I promise.” Natsu flashed her his signature cocky smile and charged through the exit much to the dismay of the concierge and other patrons.
“We just got here…” Lucy’s whimpered from over his shoulder.
“I’m sorry Lucy but as an ancient man from Bellum, I must conquer that neck of yours with kisses. It’s the rules, you saw the statues.” Natsu stated exaggeratedly as Lucy blushed. “Besides… I think we should do exactly what they were doing and do away with these bothersome clothes…” Natsu whispered in her ear.
“Natsu Dragneel!” Lucy yelled, punching at his back but ended up giggling along with him.
“Onward my Lady! To the ancient bed!”
“Enough with the ancient stuff!”
“To do the ancient thing!” Natsu guffawed as Lucy gasped and pounded on his back in protest as he ran back towards home.

*The places mentioned with a star are actual places in the Fairy Tail universe. I did my best to match up with where they might be like in accordance to our world. Sooo Dessierto would be Egypt and Bellum is Rome.
