______________________________________________________________

It was supposed to be one of the big milestones of Lucy’s life.

Everything was all planned. The cake was finished, the caterers had been called, the tuxes and dresses had been paid for, and every decoration was in place. It was Lucy’s wedding day: the day that she and her fiancee, Dan Straight, would be bound in matrimony. Lucy had mixed feelings about it, honestly. She was already having doubts about her life up until now. Dan was much older than her, and he seemed to be much more infatuated with her than she was with him.

She couldn’t blame this all on her father, no matter what. Sure, he’d been the one that had introduced Lucy to Dan, and had suggested that she date him instead of this hot guy at her school. She was the one who listened to him, after all, and she was the one who had accepted Dan’s proposal.

Things just didn’t feel right. They say that love should make you feel like you’re floating on a cloud. Every kiss should have fireworks, every time you touch you should feel the connection, you should get butterflies in your stomach when nearby. Those feelings did not describe how Lucy felt.

With a sigh, she looks down at her feet. The poofy white wedding dress covers her white heels, the wide skirt feeling overly large. This dress was insanely uncomfortable… With a sigh, she decides to take a small walk outside the church. She really needs some fresh air.

The gardens outside are in full bloom. Bright shades of red, blue, yellow, pink, and purple greet her eyes, along with the rich green color of the foliage. She watches a tiny pink butterfly flit from flower to flower, its wings beating slowly. This peace is suddenly interrupted by the sound of a familiar feminine voice, “But will we be alone?”

“Don’t you worry, Angie-poo,” Dan’s voice replies. Lucy’s heart stops. “We’ll have plenty of time to ourselves after I move in with Lulu. I’ll keep on lying about having a job and come see you~ We can meet in my old house and go even further than two nights ago~”

Angel’s giggle that followed afterwards, along with the husky tone of voice Dan was using, broke Lucy’s heart in two. Dan…was cheating?! She had always wondered why he never paid for their dates: he never had money to begin with! Instead of having a job, he went around sleeping with women!

Tears sting her eyes as she runs back into the church. There she undresses, throwing the gown to the floor as she pulls on her t-shirt, skirt, and boots. She was so done with him. Sure, she was heartbroken, but at the same time…she wasn’t.

She storms out of the church in a huff, making sure to slam all the doors. On her way out, she tears off her engagement ring and leaves it by the men’s dressing room with a note that read, “Give it to the girl you’re doing instead.” Lucy didn’t care if she sounded like a bitch, she was so done with this man… Forever.

Lucy ran as fast as she could back towards her house. She had no car, as Dan had driven her here. She would’ve stolen his car, but he had the keys, and Lucy really didn’t want to go to jail today. Or ever, for that matter.

Wiping tears from her eyes, Lucy stops for a breather by an alleyway (in retrospect, it wasn’t really the best idea…). With a sigh, she gazes outward at the street. Not many cars came by her, but that was understandable. There were two ways to get to Lucy’s house: the fast way, or the long way. She took the long way, simply because she knew no one would follow her. The main reason, though, wasn’t because of the distance, it was because of the neighborhood. This part of Magnolia was the ghetto.

“Whatcha doin’, Blondie?” a creepy voice says from behind her. A shiver goes up Lucy’s spine at the man’s voice. A muscular, broad-shouldered man with lots of piercings and long black hair steps in front of her. His red eyes study her fairly short skirt. Oh…no… She was in trouble now. “You do realize that you’re in gang territory, right?”

Lucy swallows, about to answer, when another voice cuts in with, “Yeah, it’s gang territory, alright. However, it is not Phantom Lord gang territory.” A shadow of another person is cast upon the sidewalk. “Get outta here, Blacksteel. My gang’s still pissed off at ya for attacking one of our girls.”

“It was harmless fun,” Blacksteel snorts. “All I did was scare her a little.”

“By beating her senseless?” growls the other man. “Seriously, fuck off. I’ve already kicked your ass once, and I don’t have the patience to do it again.”

“You’re such a spoilsport, Salamander,” snaps Blacksteel. “All I did was-”

“SHUT UP!” Salamander shouts, and he leaps out of the alleyway and punches Blacksteel right in the jaw. Lucy’s jaw drops at the sight of him. He’s much shorter than Blacksteel, but definitely has strength, as Blacksteel lurches backwards as Salamander’s fist hits him.

“Fine!” Blacksteel shouts, rubbing his chin. “I’ll leave you alone for now! But just so you’re aware, Fairy Tail is not safe in these parts. You’ve always been little arrogant shitheads, and someday, that’s gonna come back to bite you.”

“Get lost,” Salamander snarls. Blacksteel then slinks off down the street, obviously pissed off. Salamander turns to look at her. “Hey, there. You okay?”

Lucy looks him up and down. Considering that he was in a gang in the ghetto, he had surprisingly nice clothing. His shirt was a bright red color, and over it he wore an unzipped black leather jacket. On the bottom he wore a pair of dark colored jeans and fairly scuffed up black shoes. His pink hair (yes, it was actually pink) was styled in wild spikes, although each one seemed to be gelled in a certain way. He stood confidently, his hands in his pockets as he studied her face.

“Y-Yes, I’m alright,” she stammers. “Thank you…he was scaring me.”

“That’s Blacksteel,” Salamander sighs. “He’s a prick who loves screwing with other gangs. He beat up quite a few gang members from various gangs last week, such as Lamia Scale and Cait Shelter. Us, too,” he replies, his expression grave.

“Is his real name Blacksteel?” Lucy asks him, a little confused.

“It’s kind of like a codename,” he replies. “We don’t want our real names getting out to the general public, because then the cops will have something to go by. They don’t like all the crimes we commit.”

“Who would?” Lucy answers immediately without thinking.

Salamander’s eyes narrow. “Look, most of the things we do aren’t for fun, okay? We do it because we’re starving, and no one wants workers from the ghetto when they can have normal city folk. There’s kids in our gang, and we need to support them too.”

Lucy’s jaw drops, “There’s kids in your gang?!”

“Well, yeah,” he admits. “We’re not like most other gangs. Everyone in our gang is an orphan, or has no place to go. We’re more like a family than a gang.” His cheeks suddenly turn pink as he rubs the back of his neck sheepishly. “And I can’t believe I just told a random person I just met all of this.”

Lucy smiles, “It’s okay, I won’t tell.” His shoulders sag in relief. “I’m Lucy, by the way. Nice to meet you, Salamander.”

“Oh, what the hell,” he groans. “I’ve told you so much already, you might as well know my real name. I’m Natsu.”

Surprised, Lucy feels her heart flutter. He’s the nicest gang member she’s ever met… “Well then, nice to meet you, Natsu.”

“Same,” he replies, flashing a grin. “Hey, uh, do you want me to walk you home? That way nobody else tries to hurt you…or worse.” Lucy opens her mouth to answer him, but he carries on. “Sabertooth has been brutal lately too. White Dragon and Shadow have been pissing me off.”

“Err…” Lucy doesn’t even bother to ask about the codenames, completely confused. “Well, uh, sure. It’d be great to have some company. I’ve had a really crazy horrible day.”

Natsu beams, “Alright!” Together they begin walking down the sidewalk. Now that Natsu was out of the shadows, Lucy could see his face a bit better. She blushes despite herself. She knows in that moment that she definitely has a weird taste in men…because this guy was really hot.

She coughs awkwardly. “Um…my house is this way.” She points to a street to her left with a slight wave her hand.

He stares at her. “Of course it is, weirdo. The other streets lead into gang territory or further into the ghetto. There’s no way you’d live there with clothes and makeup like that.”

Lucy feels her face flush. “W-Well, normally my makeup isn’t like this… You see…I…” She turns away from him. “I kind of just ran away from my own wedding.” Natsu chokes on his spit. Lucy quickly tries to explain, “I-It was for a good reason! I found out my fiancee didn’t actually have a job! Instead he’d go out and lie with other women!”

“Damn!” Natsu swears furiously. “If I knew that guy, I’d beat him up for you! He sounds like a total-”

Lucy cuts him off, “It’s okay, Natsu, calm down. I never really loved him anyways… I don’t even really know what love is, actually… It’s always been a mystery to me.”

“I don’t understand it either,” Natsu replies sheepishly, blushing slightly.

“R-Really?” Lucy blurts. “It seems like you would’ve had a girlfriend since you’re so attractive!” Natsu’s face turns bright red.

“Uh-uh-uh-” Natsu stammers, embarrassed. “W-Well, n-no…”

“Uh, well, I-this is my house,” Lucy finally says, walking up my walk. “Um…maybe I’ll see you again…”

“Soon,” he suddenly replies. “I’ll see you soon, Lucy.”

______________________________________________________________

Four months later, Lucy hoists her bag up on her shoulder as she walks out of the grocery store. She can still smell the freshly cooked muffins in her bag. The scent makes Lucy feel warm and happy.

“C'mon, Angie-poo,” a familiar voice says, “we’re going to-” Dan stops short when he spots Lucy. “Oh, Lulu!” gasps Dan. “I haven’t seen you since the wedding! Where did you go?!”

“Leave me alone, cheater,” she snaps, turning away slightly.

“Oh, but Lulu-”

Dan is violently interrupted by a shout of, “Leave her alone!” A group of five people walk up to Lucy, Dan, and Angel. Natsu leads the group, and he is followed by a redhead, a young blue-haired girl, a little light blue-haired boy, and a shirtless dark-haired boy.

Dan’s face turns white. “A…a gang?!”

“We’re Fairy Tail,” the redhead says darkly. “My name is Titania.”

“I’m Freeze.”

“I’m Rain Woman!”

“I am Bookworm!”

“I’m Fish!”

“And I’m Salamander,” Natsu says darkly. He steps towards Dan. “No need to introduce yourself. I know who you are. You’re the bastard that hurt Lucy… I’ll never forgive you!”

“Natsu!” Lucy shouts, stepping in front of him. “Stop. It’s okay.” Even though Lucy could see that Natsu is seething, there was no way she was going to let him take his anger out on Dan. She turns back to her ex, her eyes narrowed. “Look, Dan. We’re through. Get your ass out of here. I don’t ever want to see you again.”

Everyone’s jaws drop. They couldn’t believe that Lucy had just snapped like that. Speechless, Dan slowly steers Angel away from Lucy and the member of the Fairy Tail gang. Lucy turns back to her friends. “Sorry, guys,” she sighs, tucking a lock of hair behind her ear.

“Sorry?!” laughs Freeze.

“No, that was kickass, Luce!” Natsu grins. “All the more reason to give you this.” He pulls something out of his jacket pocket. “That’s why we’re even out here. Erza, oops, I mean, Titania, saw you going to the store, so we came after ya.”

The item he places in her hand is cool and smooth. Very slowly Lucy opens her hand. A gasp escapes her throat at the sight of the pink Fairy Tail symbol necklace. “You…you didn’t…”

“You’re now an honorary member of our gang,” Natsu says to her, placing a hand on her shoulder. “You wear this, the other gangs won’t touch ya. They’ll see that you’re under our wing, and they’ll either be friendly or leave you alone.”

“You want me…to be an honorary member?” Lucy whispers, tears of joy in her eyes.

“Aye!” Fish cheers.

Lucy breaks down into happy tears, throwing her arms around Natsu’s neck. “Oh, thank you thank you thank you! It’s so great to know that I have friends!”

“No problem,” Natsu grins. “Now, you can come hang out with us at our hideout. Dontcha worry, it’s not scary. Everyone’s super friendly.”

Lucy pulls away, gently pressing her forehead against his. “Natsu…” she whispers.

His cheeks turn pink, “Eh? What?”

Very slowly, she leans a tiny bit closer to Natsu. Behind him, his fellow gang members’ eyes widen in shock. Lucy closes her own eyes, slowly shortening the distance between them. Right as she’s about to close the gap, Natsu’s hands suddenly find the back of her head, and then he’s slamming his lips into hers. The kiss was forceful at first, but slowly turned soft, warm, and gentle. Lucy felt like she was going to explode.

She didn’t know how long they kissed for. The only thing she knew was that they kissed more than once, stopping only for small bursts of air. Behind them, their friends were watching, dumbstruck and embarrassed.

Sure, this wasn’t like the cliche love story. She had been through a failed engagement, disobeyed her father, and met and befriended a gang. And now, here she was, kissing a long-time member of the infamous Fairy Tail in front of a discount grocery store. But to Lucy, it really didn’t matter. This was her story…

All it had taken was a little Serendipity, and she finally found her way.

anonymous asked:

I have a headcanon that the time when natsu and Lucy "spar" will be when natsu is END and Lucy is trying to stop him and bring him back to his sences.

    “Natsu, please!  You can’t do this, this isn’t you, you have to hear me!” Lucy screamed at the man in front of her.  He was almost unrecognizable to her by now; he had horns that were protruding from his head and black marks scattered around his body.  He wore a devious smile that churned her stomach, there was so much destruction, so much chaos around them- she knew she needed to do something.

    “Will you shut up already, I already told you I am E.N.D, Zeref’s most powerful demon.  This boy that you speak of was just a vessel that I was being stored in.  He is no more, you cannot save him like you desire.  He is gone; it’s a shame this body is so weak.  Once I’m at my full potential I’ll be unstoppable and Zeref will rein on this world.”  Lucy shivered, trying to hold back her sobs.  Everything happened so fast, the bandage on Natsu’s right arm was finally remove, it had gotten burned off in one of the fights between Team Natsu and the cronies involved in the ‘purification ritual’.   It was like it happened in slow motion; the bandage fell, Lucy saw the dark marks that were creeping up his arm, and Natsu’s look of horror, his last look boring into Lucy’s gaze.  

                                                   ~Flashback~

      “Natsu…  What is that?” Lucy questioned breathlessly.  Natsu seemed speechless as chaotic battling continued around them.

       “Natsu!” Lucy yelled firmly, looking at him in terror.  Terror for herself and her teammates or terror for Natsu himself she wasn’t sure.  She knew it was bad,, it chilled her to the bone; something about the marks reminded her of death and destruction.

      “Lucy, you have to get out of here.” Natsu whispered, almost too quiet for her to hear him.

     “What?”

      “I said, get out of here!  Now, Lucy!” Natsu snarled causing Lucy to flinch back.

      “I-I’m not leaving you here what’s wrong?” Lucy’s voice wavered and Natsu seemed to be in inner turmoil.

     “You can’t help me, I thought I had more time but it’s too late.  Please Lucy, you need to leave, get to safety!” Natsu cried as Lucy watched in horror as the marks started spreading at an increased rate up his arm and across his chest.

     “What is that?  Natsu, please tell me!” 

     “What did I just say!  Agh…  Lucy please, I need to know you’re safe…” Natsu fell to his knees, clutching his arm in agony.

     “Natsu!” Lucy gasped and ran toward him, ignoring the action around her and his ominous warning.

     “You’re making a terrible mistake…” Natsu’s head hung low, his eyes cast toward the ground.  

      “W-what?” Lucy gasped as she watched his usual stony pupils turn to serpent-like slits.

       “Lucy…” Natsu snickered, his voice dark.  Lucy stumbled backwards away from him as straightened his back, staring directly at her.  Suddenly, he seemed to snap out of his current state and back to being himself.

    “Lucy!  Get away from me, now!  Please…  I can’t…  I don’t want to hurt you…” Natsu shouted at her and Lucy shook her head in confusion.  Natsu collapsed once again and she felt his magical power increase drastically.  She felt an awful sense of foreboding making her spine tingle.  Then, Natsu started to laugh almost sadistically, swaying to his feet.

      “Lucy…  What a pretty name.  This one is awfully fond of you, what a pity.” He grinned down at her ripping off Natsu’s shirt fully exposing the black marks that had consumed his body.

    “Natsu…  Who are you?  What did you do with Natsu!” Lucy screamed at the figure in front of her.

     “Stupid girl.  I wouldn’t go speaking to such a divine being like that again if you know what’s good for you.  I am Etherious Natsu Dragneel, better known as E.N.D. and I am the most powerful demon in Zeref’s book of E.N.D- ironically, a book of ME!” Natsu cackled as if what he said was hilarious but Lucy’s insides felt frozen.

                                                 ~End Flashback~

       “I don’t care who you are, Natsu isn’t gone!” Lucy countered him, stumbling to her feet.  Murmurs from the soldiers of the purification ritual started to sound as they finally realized what was going on.

      “Look!  E.N.D. has awoken!  Zeref is coming!”  One of them sang causing the brawling to temporarily cease.

     “Huh?  What’s going on?” Gray called and Lucy whipped around to face him.

     “A demon from Zeref’s book is taking over Natsu!” Lucy shrieked, feeling her heart shatter in one sentence.

      “What?” Erza gasped, lowering her sword that she was wielding.

      “You’re a foolish one aren’t you?” E.N.D spoke up from behind Lucy causing her to quickly turn back around.

      “Natsu…” Happy whimpered from somewhere on the battlefield.

      “You need to be taken care of, in fact Zeref made you a priority for some reason, Lucy Heartfilia.  It’s time for me to stop playing around with meaningless humans and do what I need to do before my master gets here.”

    “W-what are you talking about?” Lucy questioned in dismay.

     “What do you need with Lucy?  You’re not gonna touch her.  You may not be Natsu but you certainly look and sound like him and I’ve never had a problem kicking his ass so I’ll have no problem kicking yours.” Gray growled but the being just laughed.

     “You’re all so pathetic.  I’m done with this, get ready to die, starting with you.” He pointed directly at Lucy and she gasped.

     “I-I’m not afraid of you!  How dare you say such things in his voice, using his body.  Natsu would never hurt me!”

     “Well, here’s the thing, I’m not Natsu and you’re going to die.” The demon stated bluntly, his face stony.

     “He’ll stop you.  I know he will.” Lucy stated determinedly standing firmly in front of him.

       “So pathetic.  You think he’s actually still alive?” E.N.D glowered, stepping towards Lucy.

       “Lucy, get out of the way!” Wendy cried out in fear.

       “I’ll be okay, Wendy!” Lucy stood her ground, she knew she should be terrified but she felt empowered.  She knew she had nothing to lose, even if she did die, it would be because she was trying to save him.  Saving Natsu.  

      “I don’t know why you’re targeting me but I’m not going to let you take away Natsu.  I’m not going to let you destroy my friends and family!” 

       “Tch, you’re spirit is just like Layla.”  His words froze Lucy.

       “What did you just say?” Lucy whispered in confusion and dread.

      “Layla?  You’re mother?  Correct me if I’m wrong but you look just like her.  Zeref thought it’d be her, that she would be one to stop me but it turns out it wasn’t her at all.  Guess you could say I killed her for nothing but I don’t really care.”

      “Y-you killed my mother?” Lucy gasped.

     “Yeah, I guess I did.” He grinned horribly, then continuing on his tangent.  “After we finally figured out that it was actually you that held the One Magic, it was too late.  I had already been sealed away in this pathetic excuse for an existence.”

     “The One Magic?” Lucy questioned in confusion.

      “I’m not surprised you were never informed about it, your mother was probably trying to protect you but she did the exact opposite.  She damned you because now I am all powerful and you know nothing of how to stop me!” 

      “I have a general idea of what the One Magic is but I don’t see what it has to do with you, myself, or my mother!”

      “Then you’re a fool, just as your mother!”  With that E.N.D’s hands, Natsu’s hands set ablaze and Lucy had no time to react before he hurled flames in her direction.  Taking a direct hit would have been crippling if Caprico hadn’t materialized and swept her away.

     “I’m sorry Lady Lucy, I used my own magic to pass through here.  You are in grave danger.” The goat laid her gently back on the ground and stood protectively in front of her.

       “Ah, the goat.  You seem to think you can protect her, well you couldn’t even the first time!” E.N.D. hissed and Caprico flinched.

      “Lucy you need to get to safety.”

      “No, I’m not leaving you.  I’m not leaving my spirits, my mother’s spirits.  This is for Natsu, for my friends in Fairy Tail, for my mother.” Lucy stood up, her Leo stardress appearing on her as she called on Loke as well.  Erza and Gray began to run towards her but she put up a hand to stop them.

      “No, don’t.  I can handle this.” Lucy told them solemnly, stopping them cold.

       “But Lucy you could….” Erza began and Lucy shook her head, her eyes watering.

       “It’s okay.  Just know that I love all of you, you’re my family.” The fight begun with the demon firing another flaming attack at them and Loke and Caprico blocking it while Regulus was shot back.  Nothing seemed to be hitting him and Lucy and her spirits were giving it everything they had.  Lucy dodged another attack while changing to her Taurus stardress attempting to use brute force.  She sprang at him but he only slammed her to the ground with a painful crash.

        “You’re weak.  You cannot stop me, you might as well let me kill you now like I’m supposed to.  I am just wasting my time playing around with you.”  He loomed over Lucy while she was petrified, crumpled on the ground.

       “Lucy!” Loke sprang forward towards her but was easily brushed off with a shot of heat.

     “Loke….  Caprico….” Lucy groaned out, seeing her spirits laying injured on the ground but refusing to leave to go to the spirit world.  Suddenly, she heard a voice and she thought E.N.D had finally done it.  Am I dead?

     “No, Lucy, you’re not.  My sweet Lucy…” The voice rang out in her head.  It sounded oddly familiar, Lucy tried hard to pinpoint the source of the voice but continued to have trouble.

      “Lucy, you must get up now.  You can save him.” The voice sounds again.

      “Who are you?” Lucy whispered, clutching her side.

      “My dear Lucy…” Suddenly, the source of the voice clicked causing Lucy to gasp in shock.

       “Mom!”

       “What are you babbling about, fool?” E.N.D. growled, getting closer.

        “Lucy, you must get up now.  Save him, save the boy…  You know how… Please…” Layla called out for only Lucy to hear.

       “But how?  I’m too weak…” Lucy whimpered.

        “You’re strong my dear daughter.  All you need to do is use what you’ve always had.”

      “What…. I’ve always had?”

      “Love.”  Realization hit Lucy like a brick wall and she smiled triumphantly.

      “The One Magic!”

       “I love you so much Lucy…” Layla’s voice began to fade bringing tears to her eyes as she shot up from her crippled state.

      “I love you mom!” Lucy screamed as she sprang onto the demon, catching him off guard.

     “What the hell are you doing?” He bellowed as the toppled down to the ground.

     “Lucy!” She heard the rest of her friends behind her call out in shock and terror but Lucy smiled once more.

     “It’s a shame E.N.D. had to ‘end’ like this.” Lucy murmured down at him pinned underneath her.

     “What are you talking about?  You cannot end me I am E.N-” His voice broke as Lucy pressed her lips to his causing him to cry out in what sounded like pain.

     “No!  You stupid girl, how?” He writhed on the ground but then started to laugh confusing Lucy.

     “Too bad it didn’t wor-” He was cut off once more as the black marks began to dissipate, making him choke on his words and ultimately causing Natsu to collapse on the ground.

      “Natsu!” Lucy called out in despair, running to his body which lay motionless.  “Please, be okay…  Mom please save him…”

      “Lucy?” Natsu murmured glancing up through lidded eyes.  Lucy felt hot tears spring from her eyes as she drew him up in a tight embrace.  She heard Team Natsu cheer in relief, she heard the confusion of Zeref’s followers, and best of yet she heard Natsu once more.

     “Natsu….” Lucy smiled widely down at him and he smirked.

    “Whatta girly demon…  A little kiss can kill him…” Natsu sighed out in fatigue.

     “What do you mean ‘a little kiss’?” Lucy questioned good-naturedly. “I used the One Magic, idiot!” Lucy finished with a giggled making Natsu smile.

    “Come here, Luce…” Natsu groaned out, pulling her down and hesitantly bringing her face down to his once more.  “Thank you.”  Lucy beamed at him through her tears resting her forehead on his.

     “Don’t do that again…” Lucy sighed. “And you have a lot of explaining to do when you’re better, you here me!” Lucy scolded lightly and Natsu’s eyes widened.

     “A-aye!” He choked out and laughter sounded as Gray, Wendy, and Erza joined them in their reunion.  Lucy laid down across Natsu’s chest; all was well for the time being however, this wasn’t the end.  Not yet.


I hope you like it!  Sorry if it seemed rushed! D:

Last Breaths

Bahaha. A really short introduction as to whats to come with my angst…

Summary: All he could do was hold her hand and watch her take her last breaths.

Beep. Beep. Beep.

The sounds of the heart monitor sounded throughout the small hospital room. Inside housed a petite blonde lying on the uncomfortable mattress the hospital offered. Beside her, her boyfriend in a hard uncomfortable chair sucking up his uncomfortable state for her sake. The two were conversing like nothing was about to happen.

Like she wasn’t about to die.

Lucy had been diagnosed with leukemia 3 years prior to this time. Through vigorous treatments, they had thought they’d cured the horrible disease threatening her life.

How wrong were they.

It went away for about a month, then reentered her system with ten times the intensity, making the doctors fear the worse. They did everything they could, but unfortunately… it wasn’t enough.

Lucy Heartfilia was going to die because of this disease.

The day had come, where they had finally decided to shut down the machines keeping her alive. She couldn’t bear anyone else being with her as she took her final breaths, she only wanted Natsu in there with her.

And so he was there, holding her hand and fighting the tears and knowingness that this was the last time he would ever be able to touch his wife.

“I love you.” She suddenly told him. “You know that, right?” He smiled, tears unwillingly slipping through his eyes and down his tanned cheeks.

“Of course I do weirdo.” He brought his unoccupied hand up to cradle her pale cheek. “I love you too, and I always will.”

“Even when I’m gone?”

He choked back a sob at her question, he knew with each passing second she was growing weaker and weaker. “Yeah Luce, even when you’re… gone.”

She smiled even though she was in pain, the machine was beginning to finally shut down, which means the oxygen in her lungs was draining. “That’s a relief.” She looked into his year filled onyx eyes with her own. “Can I… can I have one last kiss?” He didn’t even reply, he just leaned in and captures her soft lips with his. All the tears, all the pent up frustration and sadness from these 3 years finally coming out. Unwillingly, Lucy broke the kiss and laid her head on her soft pillow before releasing her own tears, looking over at her husband.

“Goodbye… Natsu.”

Before he could even reply, she flat lined. She was dead.

Lucy was dead.

She wasn’t coming back. He would never wake up and see her radiant smile. Or taste her cooking. Or tease her about all the porn novels she read. Wake up with her in his arms, kiss her… nothing.

Because she was gone.

And now half of Natsu was gone as well.
