Chapter 35 - The Uncertain Job

Start from the beginning

The living room was right in front once you step in and on my right side was the kitchen with a square dining table with three chairs. From the kitchen and living area, was a small hall that led towards two doors. I assume one of them was the bathroom and the other was Sting's man cave. I liked his place, especially since it's clean... I'm slightly surprised that he kept his place clean, unlike Natsu whose house was all stinky and messy with so many stuff lying around. I shivered just by remembering about it.

"Yeah it's my home. Sorry it's not much..." he scratched the side of his cheek awkwardly while shutting the door behind me.

"It's fine.. I like-"

"You like small and cozy places, right?" he interrupted me before I could answer while he gave a cheeky grin.

"How did you... No wait. I've been in here before... when I was younger right? When we um... met?" I asked softly.

"Y-Yeah... This feels so nostalgic." he grumbled and walked towards the dining table to sit and wait for me to come over.

"Please come take a seat. Make yourself at home...that way we can talk about my plans for the feast." he smiled and pushed a chair out for me.

"Alright, since you are my client." I smiled and took the seat that he offered, which I gladly took.

"Is there any other chefs that you've hired?"

"So far... just you." he grinned awkwardly making me to sweat drop.

"Just me?!"

"Yeah... I heard that Fairy Tail has one of the best chef's in all of Magnolia! I just had to get that person to come here and I didn't know that it was you..." he gave a small smile.

"Oh? You sound unpleasant that it's me and not some famous man chef to cook your feast... Is there something wrong with me?" I crossed my arms and arched an eyebrow at him. He raised his hands in defense and shook his head.

"N-No! That's n-not what I meant!" he stuttered.

"Then what did you mean?" I implied, as I placed my elbows pressing on top of the table, locking my hands together before placing my chin to rest on them while I glared at him.

"I-I'm just surprised that it was you! I'm really happy that your here! and I uh.... just missed you..." he blushed and averted his face from me.

"You missed me?" I asked slightly surprised.

"I did... But since you're here now. It makes me really happy to see you again..." he mumbled shyly.

"I... I've missed you to, Sting-kun..." I blushed this time, and brought my hands onto my lap this time and stared down to fumble with my dress.

"Really? I'm glad... that makes me a ton of times happier!" he grinned, the blush still staining his cheeks.

"Y-Yeah... anyways! Onto that feast thing... what would you like me to cook? And what's the plan about this sudden job?" I asked nervously, still fumbling with my dress.

"Oh right! Well it's... let's just say that I wanted to make Sabertooth to become a better guild! We are still learning to become a guild where we protect our comrades just like your guys'... and I just thought... Well you know..."

"A celebration for the newly new and improved Sabertooth?" I added in with a huge smile on my face.

"Yes yes! That's exactly it!" he beamed and took both of my hands in his.

"Wow! That's really exciting news Sting-kun!"

"Isn't it?! It's going to be a surprise!"

"A surprise?! That makes it even more fun!" I giggled.
