Send Me A Number
30. This can’t be real
No this wasn’t Natsu, he would never do anything like this.
He wasn’t holding her up by her neck, claws digging into her skin, with a wicked grin spread across his face.
He chuckled before pulling her face closer to his, “I’m not Natsu, human,” he said, dropping her to the ground.
“But you are N-”
“Etherious Natsu Dragneel, or I believe you know me as your best friend.”
Gray coughed from where he lay on the ground, “All this time…even when we were kids…Were you just pretending this whole time?”
“Let me think…yes.”
“Everything was a lie?” Erza asked, from where she leaned against the wall, sword piercing through her stomach.
“Yea, you guys are pretty stupid ya know.”
“All this time the enemy was right beside us,” Gray murmured, slowly losing consciousness.
“As your beloved dense Salamander,” END said with a laugh.
Lucy felt hot tears pouring down her face, memories flashing through her head.
“Now if you don’t mind I have a brother to go teach a lesson too,” he said turning away.
“Natsu don’t go!” Lucy shouted.
“Lucy be careful he’s dangerous,” Erza mumbled, feeling lightheaded as she watched her blonde haired friend stand up.
“Please don’t leave me Natsu.”
He turned back towards her looking down at her small frame, biting his lip.
“You know Lucy, you’re the only human that I actually like.”
She stared into his onyx eyes, “Please take me with you…I l-love you.”
“Demons don’t feel this love you talk about Lucy…but for some reason you make me feel…human I guess you would say.”
“So take me with you!”
“You really want to leave everything behind?”
“I just want to be with you.”
“LUCY NO!” Erza shouted regaining some strength.
Natsu held out a hand to her, wings extending behind him.
“Lucy don’t go,” Gray whispered from the ground, knowing his attempts were futile with how much she loved him.
She grabbed onto his hand, which he flung over his shoulder picking her up bridal style and taking off. She held on tightly burying her face into the crook of his neck, inhaling the scent that smelled like home to her, even if they were hundreds of feet in the air.
“I love you too,” Natsu said, “At least I think I do…As much as a demon could ever love someone.”
“This can’t be real, Natsu Dragneel loves me…I must be dreaming.”
“Naw you’re awake but it would be best if you slept…Don’t worry I promised I wouldn’t hurt you and I won’t let anyone else hurt you…You’re mine now got it?”
She nodded her head, ignoring the anger in his voice, “I’m yours Natsu.”
“And you won’t leave me…I’ll make sure of that.”
She felt herself falling asleep, his warmth enveloping her feeling her heart drop when she heard him mumble,
“I’m sure Zeref can find a way to make you immortal so we can be together forever.”
