“Oh, your back…”

Her voice was soft and hesitant, and no small amount of horror filled it.

“Hm?” Natsu looked over his shoulder and saw his pretty detective standing in the doorway, wringing her hands.

Her brown eyes, wide and all-encompassing, marveled at his slick back, or rather the decorations on it. He knew what she was seeing; the ugly, warped mass of flesh that stretched from his right shoulder to left hip bone and the gaudy tattoo that smothered it. Though she tried to hide her morbid fascination, Natsu was well aware of what it looked like to her.

Rather, what he looked like–a butchered patch-job gone wrong. Like a sadist had taken clumps of his flesh and stuck them together without smoothing them over.

Even the tattoo, as large and colorful as it was, couldn’t hide the sheer deformities underneath it.

His spine grew stiff at the reminder of just who he was. “Yeah, pretty nasty scar from my last job as Salamander,” he told her, snapping her out of her staring contest with his back.

Lucy’s eyes dragged upwards to meet his sheepishly, as though she were embarrassed to have stared for so long. “How did it happen?” she murmured, stepping further into the muggy bathroom.

Don’t imagine your bias being a fantastic dad. Don’t imagine him struggling to learn how to braid in secret, watching Youtube tutorials late into the night so that his little girl can have the prettiest hair in Pre-K. Don’t imagine him helping the older kids with their homework while balancing the youngest on his hip. Don’t imagine him arguing with your two year old that no, mommy is not cooler than appa how dare you even think that you are in time out I want you to think about what you’ve said.
