Finding a Rat

1.5K 66 10


I left the meeting. There was a traitor somewhere and if anyone could find them, it was Lucy.

I walked to Lucy's room with a little rush. I didn't want to use her to find the rat since she doesn't want to be apart of this, but finding the traitor was a priority. Not to mention that they were a leading cause to Lucy getting hurt.

I reached the medical room. I must have been deep in thought since the meeting room is on the other side of the base.

Taking a deep breath, I opened the door. I expected one of three things. 1. Lucy to be missing of her own accord 2. Lucy to be missing because of Sabortooth 3. Lucy to be upset for some reason. I didn't like any of the options, but let's hope for number 3.

I walked through the door and........... Lucy was there. She wasn't upset, or anything. Her chest moved up and down and a slow pace, Lucy was sleeping soundly.

I pouted my lips. I didn't want to wake her, but I really need to wake her. I started having a debate in my head, which on second thought took a lot of time.

"Natsu?" I snapped my head and saw Lucy sitting up. She rubbed her eyes and stretched her legs.

"Did I wake you?" I asked, slightly ashamed.

"Yes and no. I had been sleeping for a while, so when you made me stay put, I didn't have anything else to do but sleep. But you are also very loud." Lucy said while setting up her pillows to her liking.

"Sorry about that..." I always had a strong walk. Gildarts had told me at a young age to have a powerful walk so people respect you. That walk had to be loud and move at a quick pace.

"You are here for a reason, so what is it? You want me to find the rat?" She said while getting up. I stood there with a bit of shock on my face. I forgot that she did stuff like that.

"Yeah...." I said sheepishly.



"Your face looks..... well it looks stupid." Lucy said while heading to the bathroom with some clothes I brought over. I quickly wiped my surprised expression off.

I waited, and waited, and waited for her to change. I started growing a beard and my face started to show wrinkles. My knees started to shake from holding my body up.

I heard the door knob wobble. I snapped out of my sudden oldman-ification. Lucy stepped out wearing a pink hoodie with a deep v-neck, ripped light blue jeans, and white sneakers. Her hair was slightly wavy since she had her hair in a braid.

"Ready?" Lucy asked while raising a eyebrow at me.

"Y-y-yeah....." I managed to choke out. I was feeling flustered for some reason. Denial~

"Ok, then let's go." Lucy said. I was frozen. My legs felt like jelly, and my heart was about to explode.

"What?" Lucy was getting impatient. She tapped her foot, and had her hands on her hips.

"Let's just go." I blurted out, avoiding eye contact. I was feeling more.... squeamish than usual around her. Is it because we have to use her to find some...... witches. Yeah, witches. Witches with a CAPITAL B! Hahahahhahahahahahahhahah, I'm clever.

"I have the feeling you are thinking something stupider than normal." Lucy murmured, but I heard.

I grabbed her hand and ran at top speed as pay back. No one calls me stupid, even if it's true, and gets away with it!

We ran full speed to find a soon to be very unlucky individual.
