A/N So here is my entry for NaLu day! Little bit late in the day…but I really wanted to try it! So here is my first ever attempt at a NaLu fan fiction!(based on a prompt from this list. And let me say…this made me fall in love with the ship even more!! :)
Big thanks to comewhatanime again for reading it over for me first! Truly, Thanks Britt!
She let out a heavy sigh. Her date was suppose to meet up
with her at 5:45 to catch the 6:00 showing of Jurassic World. Yet, here she stood, 15 minutes past the designated
movie time and 30 minutes past the time her date had agreed to meet her.
I guess he decided
there were better things to do
To make matters
worse, it started to rain. As she turned to return the way she came, she
noticed a peculiar man cursing at his phone. Thinking he might need some help,
she walked up to him to offer her assistance.
“Hey, are you alright sir? Is there anything I can-”
“DAMN IT!” Lucy jumped back, startled by his outburst. She
took a closer look at the man through the rain that grew heavier by the minute.
He had an alarming shade of pink hair that spiked out in every direction. He
was quite tan and rather built if Lucy dared to say so. His striking features
were even more amplified by the furious expression he currently wore on his
While these thoughts ran through her head, the angry man
looked up at her in confusion.
“Oh, sorry. I didn’t mean to startle you. I was just—you’re
shivering! What are you even doing out in this rain?” Lucy realized she was, as
he had said, shivering from the wet clothes that had started to cling to her.
“I didn’t even notice…I was on my home anyway.” But before
she could turn around to leave, the man grabbed her arm and pulled her into the
“There! Much warmer in here. What were you doing out there
Lucy gaped at him. “Well what were you doing out there!”
The man scoffed at her as some of his previous anger
returned to his face.
“I was waiting for
my date to show up, but apparently she had something better to do! And she
couldn’t even bother sending me a message before
I sat here and waited for 25 minutes!”
“…at least your date notified you of their decision.” Lucy
looked away with the look of rejection in her eyes
“Wait, you’re saying your date stood you up too?!” What a
jerk!” Lucy smiled at that, pleased that someone shared her opinion.
“My name is Natsu, by the way. What’s yours? Since we are swapping sap stories now.” The
man, she knew as Natsu now, chuckled. Lucy felt something warm bubble up from
her chest. He has a nice laugh. Wait!
What am I thinking? I just met the guy!
“So are you going to tell me your name or continue fighting
with yourself on whatever issue you are thinking of?” Natsu laughed again.
The warm feeling returned as well as a soft blush that crept
onto her face.
“Alright then Lucy. It’s decided!” Natsu stood up from his
spot with determination as Lucy looked at him in confusion.
“What? What’s decided? Whoa-where are you taking me now?”
Natsu had removed her from her spot and dragged her to the counter.
“Since both of our dates couldn’t be bothered with us, screw
them! Let’s go see a movie together instead!” Natsu looked quite proud of his
decision while Lucy still looked baffled, but…
There it was again.
Lucy snapped out of thoughts in time to hear Natsu say, “Two
tickets for Jurassic World please!”
“How did you know that’s the movie I was going to see?”
“Considering the fact it just came out today, its not that
hard of a leap.”
Oh..right. Way to go
Lucy. Now he thinks you’re some moron.
“Oi! Earth to Lucy! Is it that fun to argue with yourself?”
Lucy blushed at that, shoving down the feelings that threatened to emerge
“You go get us a seat! And I will buy some popcorn.”
Lucy was walking away
before Natsu had a chance to argue, but she thought she heard a quiet, ‘Yes ma’am’
from her new pink-haired friend. She stopped.
Since when did I
consider him my friend?
She ran to the proper showing room and tried to spot Natsu
in the already dark room. Despite the lack of light, it wasn’t hard to find
him. She sat next to him and checked her watch-6:25
“Did I miss
“Nah, you know they play ads for like 30 minutes. In fact
you’re just in time! Looks like the movie’s starting!”
It became darker in the theater and Lucy took this chance to
study Natsu more. His childlike expression made her laugh. Quite the opposite
from the angry expression she had first seen. This expression fit him much
“…dinosaurs?” Lucy blinked, realizing she missed the
“I said are you a fan of dinosaurs?”
“Of course! I have been waiting for this movie for a long
“Oh? I didn’t have you pegged for a dinosaur girl.”
“Maybe you shouldn’t judge a
book by its cover. Now shush I am trying to watch this man be torn limb from
limb!” Natsu laughed at her excited expression before settling in with the
popcorn and enjoying the scene-both the one in front of him and the girl
sitting next to him.
“That was awesome! When those raptors helped out! But then
they died, and I never expected to be upset over them! The movie had me rooting
for raptors!” Lucy spluttered on and on about the film while Natsu walked next
to her, laughing silently about her antics.
“I couldn’t believe people actually thought that system
was going to work? Did they learn nothing from the previous movies? And when
they-“ Suddenly Lucy was spun around to find her lips meeting Natsu in a soft
kiss. The pair stayed like that a moment before they both pulled away.
The reoccurring blush
had come back to Lucy’s face as she looked up at Natsu in bewilderment. Natsu
smiled down at her before grabbing her hand and walking forward
“Hey, hey, hey, where are we going?! And y-you-“ Lucy
tripped over her words while trying not to trip over her feet.
“ I think you’re cute.” Lucy stopped abruptly, forgetting
she was currently linked to the fast moving pink-haired man in front of her and
was pulled forward. “What?”
“I said I think you’re cute. Or do you need to have a debate
in your head over it first to process that information?”
Lucy attempted to control the butterflies in her chest,
along with the warm feeling rising up. This
“I’m glad our dates ditched us.” Lucy laughed at that, still

I sew my clothes this time though. I can’t help but see only the things that I failed but I guess they’re ok. It took me a while to finish them because failing the skirt’s hem or messing the top’s armhole made me crawl into an anxiety hole. But now I feel kinda cute wearing them so that’s cool I guess.
