and perfec


Ahh, here it is, the fic that was bound to wrench itself from my fingertips!  This a song fic based on Ed Sheeran’s Perfect.  I am in love with this song, and it gives me so many nalu feels that I needed to put it into words, so here it is!  I hope you love it!

I found a love for me
Darling just dive right in
And follow my lead

The pace of the evening had decelerated in preparation for the first slow dance of the night.  Levy and Gajeel were in the center of the dance floor, in their own world, foreheads pressed against one another, only possible due to the high heels she was wearing.  They swayed to the music and Natsu noted how peaceful they looked.  He was happy for the pair, as much as Gajeel was a pain in the ass, he and Levy were good for each other.

Well I found a girl beautiful and sweet
I never knew you were the someone waiting for me
‘Cause we were just kids when we fell in love

“Natsu,” A soft voice sounded from behind where he was seated, and Natsu turned in his chair to see Lucy.  She was standing before him, a shy smile playing on her lips, and a soft pink dress clinging to her curves,

“Y-yo!” Natsu practically choked out, surprising himself as his voice got stuck in his throat.  “You look nice, Luce.”

“You act like you haven’t seen me all night,” Lucy teased as she walked closer to him, and Natsu stood from his chair.  “But thank you.” She curtsied slightly, giggling at her antics.

“Do you want to dance?” Natsu found himself asking before his brain could catch up to his mouth.  The request seemed to surprise Lucy, her cheeks flushing under the soft lights that were strung around the guild hall.

“S-sure!” She smiled enthusiastically and Natsu offered his hand as they made their way to the dance floor.  They stayed on the outskirts, Natsu not being the best dancer, he didn’t want the others to make fun of him.

Not knowing what it was
I will not give you up this time

“I’m bad at dancing.” Natsu grinned sheepishly down at her as they stole a spot at the fringe of swaying bodies.

“Slow dancing is easy,” Lucy informed him.  “Just put y-your hands on my waist, like this,” She guided his hands to her hips making his face burn with repressed emotion.  “A-and I guess I’ll just put my hands up here then.” She stated, drawing her own hands up to his shoulders, avoiding his eyes.

But darling, just kiss me slow, your heart is all I own
And in your eyes you’re holding mine

Baby, I’m dancing in the dark with you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song

The music was methodic, their bodies swaying easily along with their guild mates.  Natsu found it easier than he had imagined, but having Lucy so close to him was distracting.  Under his suit, his body felt hot, and he could feel a blush creeping down his neck and to the tips of his ears.

When you said you looked a mess, I whispered underneath my breath
But you heard it, darling, you look perfect tonight

“Sorry, I probably look all sweaty.  I was dancing with Erza, Juvia, and Levy just a little bit ago.” Lucy apologized, and Natsu was taken aback by the seriousness in her apology.

“You look perfect, Luce.” Natsu murmured out before he could catch his tongue, his own eyes widening in surprise.  “I-I, u-um…”

“Thanks, Natsu.”  Lucy smiled a bit, looking up at him through her long lashes.  “You don’t look too bad yourself in this spiffy suit.” She laughed lightly and Natsu cracked a grin down at her, and she brushed a stray bit of his hair from his eye, then looked away, pulling her hand back to his shoulder.

Well I found a woman, stronger than anyone I know
She shares my dreams, I hope that someday I’ll share her home
I found a love, to carry more than just my secrets
To carry love, to carry children of our own

“It’s crazy, isn’t it?” Lucy suddenly asked, her eyes wandering to the center of the floor where Levy and Gajeel still stood, moving in perfect harmony.  “They’re married and having a baby…  Time flies.”

“Yeah…”  Natsu whispered out a reply, watching her face as she watched the pair behind them.  There was something like longing in her eyes and something else that Natsu couldn’t quite put a name on.  Her brown eyes sparkled, the lights above them reflecting in them and making them shine brighter.

We are still kids, but we’re so in love
Fighting against all odds
I know we’ll be alright this time

“I suppose…  It’s what happens when people are in love.” Lucy whispered to herself, but Natsu caught her words, and pulled her closer to his chest, wrapping his arms tighter around her.  She let out a squeak of surprise and, due to their proximity, pulled her arms from his shoulders and placed them, and her head, on his chest.

Darling, just hold my hand
Be my girl, I’ll be your man
I see my future in your eyes

They danced for a few quiet moments, Lucy’s head resting above his heart, and Natsu holding her close enough that he rested his cheek against the top of her head, smelling the cucumber shampoo she always uses.

Baby, I’m dancing in the dark, with you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
When I saw you in that dress, looking so beautiful
I don’t deserve this, darling, you look perfect tonight

He couldn’t help but listen to the lyrics of the song that weaved beautifully through the guild.  Lucy was so beautiful and he was lucky enough to be the guy dancing with her.  He knew that other guys would kill to be with her, and that made him feel special.  But something deep within him, something that felt like guilt, surfaced as swayed with Lucy, her scent surrounding him, her in his arms.  Something told him that he didn’t deserve this, he didn’t do anything to deserve Lucy, she was amazing.  What did he do to lead up to him being with her?  To be so close?  To share so many laughs and tears with her?  

Baby, I’m dancing in the dark, with you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
I have faith in what I see

“Luce,” Natsu whispered down to her, pulling his head from hers so she could lean back a bit, big brown eyes meeting his own.

“Yeah?” Her voice quiet and almost sounding hopeful.  Natsu swallowed hard, his hands were shaky and sweaty, and he desperately hoped that Lucy wouldn’t notice.  He looked away quickly, unable to meet her familiar gaze for the moment.  Then, with a deep breath to steady his nerves, he picked his gaze back up to meet hers where she was waiting patiently, a curious look on her face.

With the song’s soft beat coming to an end, the music cradling them in their own space, Natsu did what he knew they both wanted.  He dipped his head quickly, before he could lose his nerve, and pressed his lips against Lucy’s.  Her eyes widened momentarily, but then she sighed, leaning into it.  Her right hand reaching up to his jawline, and Natsu brought his own hand to the back of her head.  They both clung to each other, as if that one kiss was what was holding their very existence together.  

Now I know I have met an angel in person
And she looks perfect
I don’t deserve this
You look perfect tonight

They pulled away after a few moments, breathing a bit heavier than before, and when their eyes met, Natsu was surprised to see tears in Lucy’s eyes.

“Lucy..?” He breathed out and Lucy smiled, allowing the tears to flow freely.

“I love you, Natsu.” Lucy whispered and, for a moment, Natsu let her words sink in before breaking out into his usual smile.  He placed another kiss on her forehead as she wrapped her arms around his torso.  Natsu admired the way the light almost created a halo around Lucy, she was beautiful, and he truly didn’t know what he did to deserve her.

“I love you too, Luce.”

“Hi, excuse me I-” You looked up for a second to find one of the visitors you had talked to just a few minutes ago. “I believe you handed me the wrong…”

The guy handed you one of the museum brochures, and you noticed the dates were off. Taking a deep breath, you opened the top drawer to find the right folder, handing one to him before apologizing. It was the third time you messed up that afternoon: First, you almost guided the group of students to the wrong exhibition, then a guest’s question went completely over your head, leaving them staring blankly at you as you attempted to collect your wits, and now this. You felt lucky that your boss was drowning in paperwork and not paying much attention to his employees.

The truth was: you were nervous. Ever since you and Lin started texting, things just clicked between you, everything was easy and he made you smile. A lot. With Stephen sitting in the next room during many of those slightly flirtatious conversations, however, you knew it had to come to a halt soon.
