. Between the Lines . 130

Everyone present in the guildhall was squirming in excitement, their eyes blazing with eagerness. Even those who weren’t involved with what was to come were there, watching from the background as those who were competing for S-Class playfully messed with one another. The S-Class mages themselves stood near the bar of the guildhall, watching with amusement.

Lucy and Loke - who’d taken on a more normal looking appearance, the one he’d used when pretending to be engaged to her when they’d gone to Bosco - spoke, working out a special contract for the time being while Natsu and Gray bickered. Wendy and Juvia were nearby, Juvia looking eager as Gray ripped his shirt over his head angrily; Charle scolded Wendy, warning her not to use too much magic as Happy purred contently in Wendy’s arms. Levy was telling Gajeel off for making the argument between rivals worse, and he only smirked at his small girlfriend. Freed and Bickslow exchanged a look of amusement and merely shook their heads.

From where he watched the group of those competing beside his daughter, Gildarts smirked, taking a drink of his beer. Erza was seated beside him, speaking quietly and warily to the cautious man that he’d brought back with him - Jellal. Jellal had offered to assist in the S-Class exams, as he’d been considered S-Class upon entering the guild. Laxus watched without interest, arching a brow when Mirajane smiled sweetly at him and asked about the last job he’d gone on.

Most would be remaining in Magnolia, naturally. Only Makarov, Mavis, the cats, the S-Class mages, and those participating would be going to the special island that Fairy Tail protected - Tenrou.

Evergreen was fairly upset about not going, complaining to Elfman about how everyone else on her team was, but one uttered mutter from Laxus had given her a pleased look.

The noise suddenly was cut off by Makarov’s shout of “Shut up, brats!”

Everyone’s attention turned on the guildmaster, who stood atop of the bar with a smug expression on his face. Lucy shifted nervously, but focused, touching the keys at her hip, and Loke chuckled under his breath, lightly touching her arm in reassurance.

Natsu gave him the nastiest of looks for that.

i would like to point out several things in this embrace that kills me inside.

  • how they have those open-mouth smiles that shoot me in the face
  • the way his arms are just spread out
  • the fact that it seems like she nearly skids to fall in his arms
  • how their bodies seem to collide in that awkward ‘omfg oops sorry not sorry’ way
  • how his eyes close tightly and he looks like a kitty cat who’s with his favorite kitty companion (and cats are usually independent little thangs)
  • how he’s holding her tightly
  • how she’s all 'woah, what is this. is this a hug’ because her hands are just all flying in the air
  • and then she finally puts her hand on his back
  • and the circle of life is complete
  • Gray:I don't like Juvia like that

“I do believe we’ve broken your human girlfriend, Natsu.” 

“She’s not my girlfriend, older brother, she’s my partner. And don’t worry, Lucy’s fine. All she needs to do is forget things for a little while, and she’ll be right as rain. Ready to continue her neverending adventure with me once more.”

From lighthearted comedy to angst central at breakneck speed, because this fandom definitely needs more angst right now  (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧
