He couldn’t believe he said that.
He couldn’t believe he did that.
He couldn’t believe it happened.
What the hell just happened? Did he just scream at Lucy’s face, tell her she was beautiful, ask her on a date and then sprint off? And why was he still running? Where the hell was he even going?
Gray stopped running and bent over, putting his hands on his knees and panting heavily. Freaking hell. What the fuck was he gonna do now? That’s it. He was gonna have to quit the guild. There was no way he could go back there. Ever.
He stood and looked around, then sighed heavily. He was out the front of her damn house. What the hell did he run to Lucy’s place for? He face palmed himself and decided the best course of action was to dig a hole and jump in, forever. Yeah, he was gonna go find someplace to hide and possibly die.
Natsu was rolling around laughing, and Gajeel had almost keeled over.
“Gihihihihihi, that…that’s so funny!” Gajeel laughed.
“Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaahhahahaah! And Lucy didn’t even hear him!” Natsu rolled around, clutching at his stomach, his eyes streaming tears down his cheeks.
Happy floated around him, “What’s so funny? What did Gray say?”
“Yeah,” Lucy said, hands on her hips, pouting at her best friend, “What did he say!”
She looked at Levy, who shrugged at her. What the hell had Gajeel and Natsu so worked up? What the hell did Gray say!? It was really starting to freak Lucy out.
“He said…” Natsu struggled to speak, “He said you’re – ” he started laughing again and Lucy’s irritation skyrocketed.
“You’re – you’re beautiful,” Gajeel managed to croak out. Lucy raised her eyebrows at the Iron Dragon Slayer.
“Uh, thanks Gajeel, but I’m really not interested,” she said. Levy frowned at Gajeel.
Gajeel stopped laughing and sniffed, “Nah, blondie! Gray,” he laughed again. “Gray said it.”
Lucy froze, “He said that?” She asked, her cheeks flaming red. What, what, what?
Gajeel smirked, “He asked ya on a date.”
Natsu started laughing even harder than before and Happy joined in.
“Gray loooves you!” Happy chanted. But Lucy couldn’t hear anything. Gray said she was beautiful. And he asked her on a date. Beautiful. Date. Beauitful. Date. Date. Date. DATE!
Lucy snapped out of her freeze and a huge smile spread across her face.
“Go, Lu!” Levy said, pushing her friend. “Go get him!”
Lucy stumbled and then waved back at her friends, running after Gray.
