At first glance, Gajeel didn’t think much of the small girl he saw in Fairy Tail before he crucified her and her friends to a tree. He snatched her up with a sneer on his face as Jet and Droy fired their attacks at him to no avail, and darted to the nearest tree before grabbing her friends.
“Please,” she had said, “leave my friends alone.”
It almost made him want to. Her eyes full of light and a stubbornness that he had never seen in a woman before–especially a woman of her height. He stopped the dagger for a moment before cutting her leg. She cried out in pain, but he kept on even though it pained him as well.
‘I hate doin’ this,’ his thoughts pressed into his brain, “but she’s the enemy. And so are they.’
As he bruised Jet and Droy, her eyes stayed the same. And it made him ever so aware of how bright they were.
