Cana and Mira looked over, giving Erza a questioning glance. They looked over to Lucy, seeing her sitting at one of the tables. A book was in her hand while her spirit, Plue, wobbled about the table. Their gazes turned to Erza, Cana choosing to ask, “How do you plan on doing that?”
“Let’s do a pocky test!”
“A pocky test?” Mira asked, her tone skeptical. “What’s that?”
Erza’s eyes gleamed as she explained. “We make her and a guy eat a stick of pocky together to see who makes Lucy blush the most!”
Cana and Mira shared a look before shaking their heads. “That’s… that’s not a real test,” Cana said, but it was too late.
The requip mage was heading from table to table, asking if anyone had any pocky. When she found a pack of chocolate pocky in Levy’s possession, she snatched it away, ensuring the girl it was for a good cause. By the time Erza returned to the bar, a small crowd had gathered, Cana and Mira filling them in to Erza’s shenanigans.
“It’s not gonna work,” Macao said, shaking his head. “That girl blushes at everything.”
“Shhh,” Kinana swatted at the old drunk, “it might work.”
Erza grabbed a few sticks of pocky, waving them for everyone to see before heading to Lucy’s table. The celestial mage looked up when she saw someone approaching, offering Erza a smile.
“Hey Erza. How are you— What are you doing?!”
Erza dragged Lucy to the center of the room, looking around for her first victim. She found him sitting at the bar, a piece of chicken in his hand. “Natsu!”
