Setting: Cop AU
Pairings: NaLu, Dragneel Brothers
Summary: Two escaped convicts seek revenge on the pink haired cop that put them away. After seeing him with his pregnant wife, they knew what the perfect revenge was.
“I can’t wait to go home.” Natsu groaned out, sitting on a stool outside of the cell he was suppose to watch.
“You can say that again.” Zeref said from the seat next to his younger brother. He looked over to his odd haired brother.He noticed his hands were interlaced behind his head, leaning against the wall. His eyes were closed, a small smile on his face. The corner of Zeref lips turned upward. “How’s Lucy?”
“She’s great besides her mood swings and strange cravings.” Natsu explained. “Yesterday I got sent to the store after my double shift for pickles and ice cream. What person eats pickles and ice cream?!”
“Your pregnant wife apparently.”
Natsu laughed a bit. He was about to reply when another voice spoke up.
“Ahh so Lucy is pregnant now?” The two cops looked in the cell where the two inmates were staring intently at the officers.
“You really should have told us Natsu, you know Jackal and I get bored in here by ourselves all day with nothing to talk about.”
Natsu narrowed his eyes, hopping of the stool and over to the iron bars that separated the four males. He gripped the bars tightly, pushing his face in the bars. “I better not hear Lucy’s name come out of your filthy mouths.” His voice was dead serious.
“Aww, but officer Natsu.” Jackal spoke up, a smirk on his lips. “We love hearing stories about your lovely wife.”
Natsu felt himself becoming more enraged by the second. He gripped the bars tighter, beginning to growl at the two inmates who were leaning against the wall behind the bars. Seeing his brother’s attitude grow more sour, Zeref decided to intervene.
“Mard Geer, Jackal stop aggravating him.” The older officer said walking besides his younger brother. “Or we’ll hold you even longer than we’re suppose to for disrespecting authority.”
Laughter rang throughout the cell from the two convicts. “More time? We’re already serving life in this hellhole.” Jackal said in between laughter.
“Thats what you get when you murder someone in cold blood.” Natsu fiercely explained. “You don’t take someone else’s life and still get to live yours.”
When Mard Geer smirked, it uneased the pink haired officer.
“I wouldn’t be to sure of that officer Natsu.”
Natsu was about to scream back at him, but a hand on his shoulder stopped him.
“They’re not worth it, Natsu. Its time to go anyway, Lucy’s waiting.” Zeref comforted him. Natsu wanted nothing more than to yell at the inmates, but the thought of being at home with his pregnant wife sounded much better than being here.
So, without another word Natsu walked out the room. Leaving Zeref alone with the two prisoners.
“Have a good night you two, we’ll see you tomorrow.” Zeref walked off, leaving the two still smirking prisoners alone.
“Oh officer Zeref, I doubt you will.” Jackal said lowly, laughing slightly. He stood up from the wall, touching the wall until he felt a flimsy substance. He pulled off the camouflage blanket off the wall, revealing a large hole in the wall. “This was worth all the cold sleepless nights.” Mard Geer stepped beside him chuckling.
“This is what happens when idiot cops like those brothers leave us alone for 20 hours of the day.” He remarked, following Jackal as he crawled through the hole in the wall making their escape.
“Honey I’m home!” Natsu called out, him and Zeref walking into the large home.
“I’m in the kitchen Natsu!” The voice of his wife shouted. The two brothers walked to the source of the voice, revealing the six month pregnant woman in front of the stove. Natsu’s lips turned into a lopsided grin at the sight of his pregnant wife. Leaving his brother’s side, he strided over to the other side of the kitchen where his wife was currently stirring something in a pot. He smiled as his hands wrapped around her waist, earning a squeal of surprise from the woman.
“Natsu! You about gave me a heart attack!” She shouted, relaxing a bit as she felt his large hands rub up and down her overgrown stomach.
Burying his face in the crook of her neck, he relaxed as he inhaled her strawberry and cream scent. “But you knew I was home.”
“Thats not an excuse to scare me like that Natsu.”
“But it’s so much fun Luce!” He unburied his face from her neck, propping his chin on her shoulder, hands still rubbing circles on her swollen stomach. “What are you making for dinner?”
“Spaghetti and garlic bread.”
“My favorite!” Natsu hugged her closer for a second. “You’re the best Luce, I needed this after the day I’ve had.” He removed one of his hands from her belly to put in on her face so he could turn her face towards his to give her a kiss on her lips.
“Oh come on, do you guys really have to kiss in front of me?”
Lucy instantly disconnected her lips from her husband’s, face heating up. She released the pot and turned in her husband’s arms, pushing his to the side to see her brother-in-law.
“Ahh, I’m sorry Zeref. I didn’t realize you were here.” Lucy said apologetically walking over to him giving him a welcoming hug.
He returned her gesture, chuckling. “I know you didn’t, but my brother sure did.” He released his sister-in-law, shooting a look to his pouting younger brother.
He huffed a breath, crossing his arms over his chest. “Sorry for showing my wife I care.”
Lucy gave him a glowering look pointing to her stomach. “I’m pretty sure you showed me you cared about me whenever you got me pregnant.” Zeref began to holler with laughter while the pink haired officers face started to flush with color. Seeing her husband all flustered made the blonde giggle. She walked back over to him, wrapping her arms around his torso getting as close to him as her plump stomach would allow.
“Oh Natsu you know I’m just teasing.” She kissed his cheek before returning back to the stove top to tend to the spaghetti noodles.
Natsu walked back over to his brother and in a whispered voice said, “Told you her mood swings were crazy.”
“I see what you mean.” Zeref muttered under his breath watching as Lucy pulled the bread from the oven. “But least it keeps things exciting, and I know you don’t like to be bored.”
Natsu shrugged. “Yeah, I guess.”
Lucy turned around to the two boys, a smile on her face. “Dig in guys!”
After an eight hour shift, the officers didn’t have to be told twice.
“Man, dinner was great but nothing beats ice cream!” Natsu unnecessarily shouted.
“You said it.” Lucy said licking her strawberry ice cream cone. “I wish it had pickles though.”
“You’re to cute sometimes.” Her husband commented, giving her a cold peck on her cheek. Lucy began to wipe away the little ice cream residue he left on her cheek.
“Thats gross Natsu!” Lucy said frantically wiping her cheek.
“Smooth move bro.” Zeref commented finishing off his vanilla cone. Natsu glared at him from the side.
“You’re just jealous that you don’t have anyone to do this stuff with.” He commented, moving his free hand and intertwining it with his wife’s.
Zeref scoffed. “Brother please, I don’t need a wife to keep me happy.”
Lucy grinned. “What about Mavis, Zeref?”
Seeing the older male stiffen, Lucy knew she has struck a cord. She proudly smirked.
“Luce, they flirt so much with each other new inmates think they’re dating.” Natsu snickered. Zeref’s cheeks turned red, turning the other way of the couple.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about.” He said trying to divert his attention. He lifted his wrist up, looking at his watch. “Oh would you look at the time. I gotta go, have another eight hour shift tomorrow. Goodnight Natsu, Lucy.”
The couple watched at the older officer walked away from them to his small apartment a few blocks away. Natsu laughed as he walked away.
“Hes so in love with her.” Lucy snickered back.
“I can already tell.” She detected, walking down the street to their home fingers intertwined with her husbands. The duo did not notice that just around the corner, two escaped convicts were watching their every move.
The two smirked, a plan of action forming in their heads.
“It’s almost time, Jackal.” Jackal smirked at Mard Geer’s words.
“Yes, yes it is.”
A loud ringing sound sounded throughout the master bedroom. Groaning, Natsu unwound himself from his wife and tried to push his annoyance out of his tone.
“Yeah?” Lucy’s eyes opened up slowly at her husband’s gruff voice and the loss of his warmth. She looked at the alarm clock on the night stand seeing that is was only four in the morning. Seeing his eye’s widen to the size of dinner plates as she heard the incoherent sounds of the voice on the other line.
Natsu shot up out of bed, already throwing the blankets off of him and reaching for his cop pants. “Are you serious? Okay, I’m on my way right now.”
He ended the call and chucked the phone on the bed, fastening his pants while reaching for his shirt. Lucy stared at him, eyes glossed with concern.
The pink haired male directed his attention to the blonde in the bed after he pulled the shirt over his head. “Emergency at work.”
Lucy nodded in understanding. “Okay, be careful.”
He walked over to her side of the bed, giving her a kiss on the lips. They lingered there for a moment before moving their way down to her growing stomach. “I’ll see the two of you later.” After he spoke those words, he immediately ran out the door. Thats when Lucy knew that the situation was more than just a normal emergency.
Natsu rushed down the streets of Magnolia, cop sirens blaring in the early morning sky. Once he pulled up to the correctional facility, he barely turned off the car because he was in such a rush to get inside. Once indoors, he dashed to the familiar cell, the one he was in charge of watching every single night. Once there, his mouth gaped open at the scene.
Officers were all over the cell investigating the large hole in the wall. He noticed his brother was searching their bunks, checking for the items they used to make a hole that size. He seen Zeref look up at him.
“Good Natsu you’re here. We don’t know the details besides they made Jackal’s blanket look camouflage to cover the hole so we wouldn’t see it.” Natsu growled at his brother’s observation, more angry at himself than anything else. He was a police officer, he was suppose to prevent things like this from ever happening. It was his block, his cell. He had felt honored when he was assigned to watch the most dangerous criminals in the facility. Now the honored feeling was beginning to fade away, self loathing replacing it.
He had failed.
Hearing his brother’s breath hitch brought the pink haired officer out of his thoughts. He watched as Zeref’s head snapped towards him. “Natsu, go check on Lucy now.” Zeref’s tone was dead serious, there was no sign of joking in his voice.
Natsu scrunched his face in confusion, eyeing a piece of paper in his hands. “What does that say?”
Debating whether it was best or not, Zeref decided that it was better if he seen it for himself. He handed over the piece of paper to his brother unable to keep his hand from shaking due to his anger. Natsu took the paper and quickly read the one line sentence before dropping the sheet of paper and racing out the cell.
“I hope your wife’s okay Officer Dragneel.”
“LUCY!” Natsu screamed as he made it to his home. He busted through the door, taking in the surroundings.
It made his heart almost stop.
Everything was trashed, out of place. Papers all over the floor, chairs pulled out. It looked like a tornado had just run through the house. Not wasting another second, he dashed to the master bedroom. He at least have a sliver of hope that Lucy was still sleeping peacefully in bed.
The hope was crushed as he looked at their king sized bed.
It was empty, Lucy was no where in sight.
Out of the disheveled mess of the bed, something red caught his eye. Though he was shaking due to the resentment and anger he was feeling, he walked closer to the bed. He looked at Lucy’s side of the bed, feeling his stomach drop as he recognized what the red substance was.
It was blood.
On the bed, and her pillow.
Natsu felt himself shake even harder, feeling tears build up in the back of his eyes. His complete worry for his wife and his unborn child made the tears stream down his cheeks. He needed answers, needed to know what happened. Through watery eyes, he spotted a sheet of white paper in the center on the bed. With shaky hands, he picked it up reading the neat manuscript.
“"Hello Officer Dragneel, I see that you got our letter. Don’t worry, we have your darling wife with us and she is fine… for the time being.”
Natsu gripped the sheet of paper tighter with every word he read.
“Good luck trying to find us Dragneel, and if you know whats good for your wife, I wouldn’t make us wait too long.”
The tears fell rapidly down his cheeks, eyes filled with so much tears he could barely read the paper in his clutches. He read the last line of the letter, it felt like his heart was just stabbed. He dropped the letter, mouth gaping mind repeating the last line of the message.
“We’re going to ruin your life, just like you ruined ours.”
