The heavy rainfall beat down on what was once a stark white
Juvia, on a normal day, would’ve made a fuss about it. It
was new, and expensive. Saved especially for occasions such as the one that was
scheduled to occur today.
The dress was torn around the hem, pieces of grass and dirt
stuck to it diligently. It seemed that nature was so set on de-purifying that
dress, it had gone a little overboard.
Juvia’s breath came out in hushed rasps, a ludicrous attempt
to keep herself silent. Her grip on the fender of the decrepit Jeep was
unwavering, her knuckles were pale from the incessant beat of the cold rain and
the tightness of her grip.
Juvia could feel Gray’s presence better than she could see
him, the rain shielded most objects, living or inatimate, from her vision. His
presence, unlike the rest of her environment, was warm.
She wanted to grab him. To clutch that worn sky blue shirt
and hide behind it like the child she was inside. But stirring deep
inside of her is the fear that if she moves, she’ll die.
Gray made the first move, she could just barely catch the
glint of his dark hair, slicked back from rain, moving upwards.
Her hand shot forward and grabbed his leg, fear and
adrenaline taking the reigns from the sensible part of her brain and she
clamped down onto his ankle, paralyzed.
When his hand comes down to remove hers, it was surprisingly
gentle, unlike his normal brutal mindset. He plucked her hand off of his leg
effortlessly, and places her hand in her lap where it could be safe. He brought
a single finger up to his lips, although the image was foggy, Juvia received
He scouted out the surrounding forest, eyes trained in on
the animal that was no doubt hunting them. His eyes saw nothing, but Gray was
smart enough to realize that if that beast didn’t want them to see it, they
He sunk back down to a crouching position beside Juvia and
shook his head curtly. Juvia stayed frozen.
“We have to move,” he said lowly, eyes fleeting back and
forth like a cornered animal. He was just as terrified as she was.
Juvia swallowed. When she told her legs to move, they
promptly refused. She then shook her head.
“Juvia, come on.” Gray encouraged, “we’re sitting ducks
here. Better to attempt an escape than wait for death, right?”
She nervously nodded, her mind in agreement with his. Her
legs still resisted movement.
“I-I’m scared.” She gasped, her hands beginning to shake
under the weight of her arms as she tried to push herself upward.
“I know,” he whispered, grabbing one of her arms carefully
and throwing it over his broad shoulders. “You have every right to be.”
Juvia sniffed, letting her weight fall onto Gray’s shoulders
for a bit. Her limp legs finally complied, and she was able to shakily stand,
with some support of course.
“Please don’t leave me,” she whimpered, revealing to him her
greatest fear since the Indominous Rex had escaped. He was stronger than her,
mentally and physically, he could leave her to die anytime he wanted to, and
why he hadn’t yet continued to baffle her. She was a useless burden, he didn’t
“Hey,” he said, trying to get her attention. When it didn’t
work, he tried just grabbing her face with his hands forcing her to stare
directly at him. “I’m with you, ok? Always.”
His simple words quelled the fear in her heart, which he was
miraculously able to do in less than five seconds. Her legs gained strength and
she pried herself away from him, not wanting to burden him with her weight any
“You alright?” He asked, without his casual dripping malice,
and almost with a hint of what she liked to think was concern.
“Yes.” She answered. A bittersweet smile tugged at his lips
as he gripped his gun to his chest. He leaned over the hood of the Jeep to
double-check for any raging hybrids, cleared the area, and looked back at her
She nodded at him tersely. His half-smile evolved into a
full-blown one, what a strange man. But fear does odd things to you, she’d be
able to contest to that.
“Let’s get the hell out of here.”
somebody should’ve definitely stopped me
