Sorry for the short chapters, but I update very often so,... thre's a balance :). I love cliff hangers on my story and I know that some people doesn't. But they are needed to keep the readers :) I listened to Half a heart when I wrote Gajeel's P.O.V. that made me feel like he did. I suggest you listen to it too when you read the chapter :)
Anyway, here's the chapter!
I sat by Shrimps bed all day. I wanted to wait for Lily and others. How long does it takes to tell a whole guild that their teammate is in a hospital? I was looking at my hands, when with the corner of my eye I saw movement from her. She was trying to sit up, but I stopped her.
"You should rest." I said. Her eyes were eyeing me up and down.
"Wh-who are you?" she asked. At that very moment my heart broke. She doesn't remember me. I fell in the chair next to her bed.
"G-Gajeel" I said looking through her. I couldn't look at her.
"Nice to meet you Gajeel. My name is Levy." she said with a smile. Those two peaces of my heart at that moment broke in thousand more.
"Shrimp do you know who I am?" I asked her knowing the answer. When I finally dared to look at her she spaced out. "Yo! Shrimp snap out of it!" I said a bit louder. She shook her head.
"Sorry, but no." That's it. There is nothing left of my heart to break, so I felt like my soul just vanished from my body. That broken I was, but I don't know why. She kept starring at me and I was starring at her. Then the doors opened and Lily and the rest came in. "Lily! Lu-chan!" she said happily. She remembered them, but not me? Why? I got up and stormed out of the room pushing past the people. I ran to the guild. I didn't want to go home, cause there I would just remember the nightmare. To the park? No. I didn't want to remember what I did to her. So I ran to the guild. I sat alone in the empty guildhall. It was weird. Sitting in a quiet guildhall, where usually were chaos. I looked at the table where Levy usually sat and read her books. The tears started to fall. Second time today. I cried what felt like hours, when I felt a small paw on my shoulder.
"Gajeel, I'm so sorry." Lily said. I quickly whipped my tears, but Lily already saw them. "Don't worry I won't tell." he said and sat next to me.
"Thanks Lily." I said in a shaky voice and patted his head.
Gajeel ran out of the room. Why did I feel sad?
"Levy! I'm so glad that you are okay." Lu-chan said and hugged me. I smiled and hugged her back.
"We were so worried!" Jet and Droy said in unison.
"Yet, Gajeel was the one who sat next to my bed, waiting for me to wake up." I whispered. I took a deep breath and looked at everyone in the room "This might sound weird, but who is Gajeel?" everyone looked at me weird. Especially Lucy.
"I'm gonna go and look if he's alright." Lily said and hopped out of my lap.
"I kind of don't remember him. I remember all of you, but not him." I explained.
"But how can you not remember him? Lily is Gajeel's cat, but you remember him." Grey said shirtless as usual.
I sighed "I don't know. I just want to know our relationship. He looked beaten up when I asked him who he was." everyone looked at Lucy.
"Com on we should leave them alone." Mirajane said and everyone agreed. I looked at Lucy with hopeful eyes.
"What do you remember from the attack of Phanton Lord?" she asked me.
"Me, Jet and Droy were hanged up in a tree, but I don't remember who did it." I said.
"It was him." she said. It felt like someone stabbed me in the heart. She told me everything. Apparently we are friends.
"And that's all?" I asked her. She nodded, but I had a feeling that she hid something.
"Levy-chan? Can I ask you something?" I nodded "What do you remember about your mission?" I thought for a moment.
Me and Lily got out of the train. We went in a big forest and started to look for the old lady's house who gave us the job. We found a small cottage in the middle of the forest. I knocked on the door. An old lady opened them.
"Move your buts inside!" she yelled. The old lady didn't look nice.
"Yes ma'am" Lily said.
"You must find and collect these herbs. They're called Truth Tellers" she gave us a peace of paper. On it was a small white flower. "Watch out of a flower like this, just pink. It's called Deadly Love. If you smell the flower then you are as good as dead." she said and pushed us out of the house.
"Well, she looks nice." a rough voice in the back of my head said, but I ignored it and continued to look for the Truth Tellers. Finally we found them and started to collect them. Then I saw the Deadly Love. I wanted to look closer so I held my breath and walked towards. The flower was so pretty so I let out my breath and smelled it. Nothing happened, so I continued to collect the white ones. When it was starting to get dark we headed back to her house. We gave her the flowers and she payed us. We walked back to the train station and waited for the train. When we finally got on the train I took out my book and started to read it. After a while I felt sleepy, so I drifted to sleep.
End of Flashback
After I told Lucy my mission we went back to the guild.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~AT THE GUILD~~~~~~~~~~~
Natsu ran in first.
"Metal head! Come fight with me!" he yelled. He must be talking to Gajeel. I thought. I looked over Lucy's shoulder an saw how Gajeel with one punch sent Natsu flying out of the guild.
"I'm not in the mood for this." he grunted and walked out. I kind of felt bad.
"I'm gonna go and see if he's okay." I whispered to Lucy and ran after him. "Gajeel!" I yelled. He walked really fast. Even when I ran I couldn't catch up to him. "Gajeel! Please wait!" I yelled. He stopped so suddenly, that I bumped in his back and fell on my butt.
"You okay Shrimp?" he asked me turning around. He helped me get up. When our skins touched I felt like a shock of lighting shot through me. I felt my face blush.
"Yeah... " I said taking my hand out of his. "I'm so sorry I don't remember you." his face dropped "But I would love to know you...Again." I said adding a smile.
"Okay. So what do you want to know?" he asked. I thought for a moment.
"If Lily is your cat, then you were on that mission too right?" he nodded "so the bed I was sleeping..."
"Yeah it was mine..." I felt my face burn up. What I saw was surprising. Although I saw it with the corner of my eye I saw his cheeks turn a tiny shade of pink.
"Hey, let's go to the park. I wanna talk to you." I said automatically grabbing his hand and pulling his towards the park. When we finally made it I sat at the base of the big tree. He sat next to me. Neither of us said a word, but the silence wasn't awkward. We were looking in eachother's eyes, treasuring this moment. After five minutes starring in his eyes I felt my head hurt.
"You okay?" he asked worried. I closed my eyes and all I could see was his beautiful red eyes.
"Yeah. I just remembered." I opened my eyes and looked at him. He was relieved by my words.
"What do you remember?" he asked.
"Your eyes. I love your eyes. I remembered that I've always loved your eyes." I said blushing.
Well isn't this dandy? It's like telling him Gajeel, I love you! Let's be together forever :D :D :D
Oh how I wish that that would happen in anime too. They stare in each other's eyes and then they lean closer and closer and they kiss. Then they're together.... Okay I'm dreaming. :)
