A/N: Please remember that this story doesn't belong to me. It belongs to the awesome fan-fiction writer: Lyonsgirl. Also sorry for the late update! This was supposed to come out three days ago, I was a bit busy. Anyways, this is chapter 8. Enjoy!

"We're home!" Happy yelled as he burst in through the guiild doors.

I giggled as I walked in behind him. Everyone turned to watch as we walked in through the doors. I started feeling a bit uncomfortable under all the stares of the guild. Did I do something wrong?  I gave a nervous smile and a small wave of the hand. "Hi," I said.

The entire guild came rushing at me. My eyes widened and I was about to run when I heard the guild shout, "You're alive!"

"Why wouldn't I be?" I asked.

"You were on a job with Dragneel." Gray said.

"What does that have to do with anything?" I asked.

"Give the poor girl some room," Master suddenly shouted. Everyone backed away immediately. Master smiled at me. "Glad to see you're not hurt."

I looked at him in confusion. "Why do you say that?"

Now it was everyone else that looked confused. "Dragneel didn't get mad at you?" Mira asked.

I laughed. "Oh, he got mad all right. At one point I  thought he was going to hit me but he didn't." Everyone gasped. "What's so surprising about that?" And why do you all keep calling him Dragneel?" 

Master sighed. "Mira will you explain this to Lucy? I have to get to that meeting." Master then hopped off the bar and walked out of the guild.

Mira led me to the bar. Gray and Happy followed. Everyone else got back to what they were doing before we came. As soon as the four of us got comfortable, Mira began to talk. " What do you know about Dragneel?" 

"I now that he didn't want to be in the guild. He's quiet, rude and never takes off his cloak unless he's taking a bath,"I answered. I smiled a little. "He's also really handsome when he smiles."

They both gasped. "You saw Dragneel smile?" Mira asked.

"Yeah, but only twice." I answered.

"You saw Dragneel smile twice ," Gray shouted. That got everyone's attention.

Before anyone could come over though, Mira said, "Let me talk to Lucy then I'll tell everyone else." Everyone nodded and went back to what they were doing but it was noticeably more quiet. Mira smiled at me. "Tell me that after I tell you about him, ok?" I smiled back and nodded. She sighed and began Natsu's story. "Natsu was raised by a dragon," Mira said. My eyes widened. Mira giggled. "I know, it's amazing huh?" She then turned serious again. "Anyways, he wasn't raised by just any dragon. He was raised by Acnologia, dragon of chaos."

I gasped. "Is that why his flames are a mixture of black and dark blue?"

Mira nodded and continued her story. "One day, Dragneel woke up and Acnologia was gone. He couldn't find him no matter where he looked. It just so happens that he crossed paths with Master on his search."

"Master said he was a very rude and bitter boy when he found him," Gray added.

Mira nodded in confirmation. "Master took him here so that he could have a family, and thought that having a family could make him happier. Dragneel resisted though, and Master knocked him out and dragged him to the guild." My eyes widened. I didn't realize Master would kidnap kids. "When Dragneel woke up, he was already and official member of the guild."
