"Hey! Luce! Watch it!" Natsu shouted as some books started too fall ontop of Lucy.

"Huh? Eh?!" She tried ducking but Natsu grabbed her just in time.

"What's up? Why are you spacing out like that?" He asked worrying about her a bit.

"Y-Yea... I guess... ugh I have to clean this up now." Lucy said.

"I'll help." Natsu said kindly smiling.

"No it's okay. I got it." Lucy picked up some books then put them away. Her finger slipped and some more books fell ontop of her.

"Uh...Luce?..."

"I'm okay!" Lucy got up and fixed herself.

"Come on. Let me help you."

"Fine. I'm sorry."

"It's okay. Wanna tell me what's on your mind?" Natsu asked curiously.

"Well...Sting asked me out to dinner earlier today. But I'm not sure if i want to date him. I have mixed feelings about it... What do you think?" She looked like she was in a daze.

Natsu surprised about the subject said unintensionally, "I don't- I mean yeah." He smiles. "You should try it out. Even though its fully up to you whether you want to or not. As long as your happy." His chest hurt when he said that.

Lucy as a little disappointed to hear that but took a deep breath and said, "Yeah I guess you're right..." She smiled. "Maybe I will."

"Y-Yeah..." Natsu looked away and there became an awkward silence.

"Well I should finish putting these books away." said Lucy

"Yeah I'll help you." They quickly put all the books back where they belonged. As they were putting the books away their hands touched and they looked at each other. Lucy and Natsu both blushed then let go.

"Well I better get going. I need to go tell Sting that I will go with him...See you, Natsu..."

"Wait!..." Natsu said

"Yeah? What is it?"

"Nevermind... Good luck!"
