Oh boy oh boy oh boy. Ya ready? Went to make an appointment, on my way back, standing at the bus stop, I get chatting with this 60-something white guy rambling on about how the guy who invented chemo was a lying poisoning criminal from Germany, and how the real cure for cancer is sour sop fruit and Rick Simpson oil. He was prattling on, and me, a 19-year-old second-year bio student, just smiles and nods and resists the almighty urge to tear him to shreds…gotta be nice to strangers…got on the bus, immediately pulled out my phone to type this to you now.

Oh my plaguemum that’s just uhhhh. UHHHHHHHH. 

Also congrats you officially have more selfrestraint than me, I would have started to tear into him because these people seriously upset me, people DIE because of them. 

trial by fire #4

chapter 4: Blackline

  • “a condition where no combustible fuels remain between the fireline and the main fire” 

summary: When a series of fires unsettles the city of Magnolia, Detective Lucy Heartfilia unwittingly reignites a war between old rivals. But when she finds herself drawn to one of her suspects, the lines between right and wrong begin to blur.

The restaurant was well-attended, but not crowded, and the pair found a small table in the corner. Natsu slid onto the bench lining the wall, throwing his jacket beside him.

“So what kinda food do they make at this place?” Natsu asked excitedly even before Lucy had taken her seat.

As Lucy dropped into her chair, her jaw did too.  “Italian of course! It’s the best!! Don’t tell me you don’t know the place!”

She seemed almost offended, and Natsu had to surpress a laugh. It seemed like she wasn’t thinking straight, her mind clouded by the promise of food. He understood all too well. His stomach was empty, and the smells in this place were sinfully tempting.

This was yet another new side to her he discovered. She enjoyed good food. And she was letting her cool slip more and more with each passing moment. He was learning new things by the second, enjoying the off-duty cop thoroughly. Soft smiles, flaring temper if you knew which buttons to press – which he did already – the clever twinkle to her eyes… And even now, with her slightly raised voice and innocent, wide eyes– and dear gods, he thought as his eyes dropped lower, her cleava–

“The pizza here is to die for! Have you really never been?”

“Uh, well,” Natsu mumbled, quickly sobered up by the simple question, “it wasn’t around when I was a teen, and ever since I got out of prison I haven’t really… uh. Treated myself a lot.”

“Oh my god, I’m so sorry. I didn’t -” Surprised, he looked up only to find her looking at him as if she had been slapped. “That was really out of place. I didn’t even think about what I was saying.”

“Don’t sweat it,” he shrugged her off, trying to hide his embarassment.

To his utmost luck, it was in that moment that the waitress interrupted. With a smile on her face and her silver hair flowing freely behind her, she handed them the menus and took their drink orders - a glass of white wine for Lucy and an export for Natsu.

Before his greedy hands could snatch one of the menus, however, Lucy gave a slight cough, smiling when he looked up. For a short moment, hesitation flickered in her eyes, as if she was pondering if what she was going to say next would be a wise choice. But the moment passed as quickly as it had come, and there was no more uncertainty in her eyes when he returned her smile carelessly.

“You can call me Lucy, by the way. Wouldn’t feel right to talk so stiffly over dinner, would it?”

Natsu pursed his lips. Was she trying to get on his good side?

This would still be an interrogation, she had made that much clear. She was here to question him, and he’d run right into her trap, like a puppy attracted by a treat. Only the surroundings had changed. That didn’t make too much of a difference, did it?

“Fine,” he allowed. “You can call me Natsu.”

She smiled, and it shouldn’t have made his chest lift. Really, he felt more and more like a dog grappling for approval. Why did it feel so weirdly right when he made her smile?

He didn’t really know, but he guessed he’d have to go with it.

  • Your mental health is more important than your grades/school work
