Natsu trudged into the guild hall, looking around warily. This was probably a bad idea. No, Natsu was well aware that this was a bad idea. But what other choice did he have? The boy didn’t have the first clue about romance (thanks Igneel!), and he couldn’t think of anyone else he would ask…
His head ached thinking about what he agreed to do. His extremities tingled and his limbs felt like noodles. Natsu hated to admit it, but he was nervous about disappointing Lucy- A first for him if there ever was one. Only Lucy could leave him so shaky. Images of what he and Lucy could do alone raced in his mind and made his cheeks heat up. Damn dating… Damn emotions!
“Where are you Gray…” He muttered to himself, the fire mage dizzily bumped into chairs, trying to find his rival. Where was the bastard when he actually needed him? Natsu cringed. He really needed Gray for once.
The fire mage scowled unintentionally. What did Gray know about dates anyway- or even girls in general for that matter?
Finally spotting him, Natsu narrowed his eyes and stalked over to the ice mage. Preparing himself for downright humiliation, Natsu reluctantly opened his mouth to speak in the most dry tone he could muster.
“Gray, you gotta help me. I have a d-date.”
