They both walked side by side in the cool evening of September, Happy just hovering above. Lucy had decided to take the other route today, one that was slightly longer and a bit deserted than her usual.

She had both her hands stretched to her side, pretending to balance walk on a tight rope.

"It's pretty isn't it?" She exclaimed suddenly, stopping to admire the sparkling lake of Magnolia.

"Yeah." Natsu agreed. "Why are we supposed to be invisible again?" He asked, pointing at him and Happy.

"Because you can't pull another Levy on me." Lucy deadpanned. "You don't want your secret out right?"

"I never really said that.." he grumbled, pouting.

"Well..uh..that much is understood!"

"Sheesh, quit fighting you two!" Happy mumbled sleepily, finally settling down on Natsu's head.

Lucy was speechless. Now that she thought about it, he never really asked her to hide the fact about his existence. It had been her who was going crazy with the developments.

She glanced sideways at him, stealing a look. He was bickering with Happy, but Lucy had tuned it all out. She remembered how longingly he looked at Levy and her socialising with the others while he was just forced to watch, unknown and in the captivity of her office room.

She sighed. She knew she was going to regret it but oh well.

She fished out her phone from her coat pocket and began typing, putting her plan in action.

Mirajane, I have been caught up in some work so could you let Master know that I'll be on a leave tomorrow?

Within moments, the beautiful, head assistant replied back, relieving Lucy.

Sure! I'll let him know. Hope it isn't too stressful?

Convincing her that it wasn't, Lucy looked up, smiling at the still bickering best friends.

"Oh hush, will you? We are in public! You might be invisible but you're not unheard!"

For some reason, Happy and Natsu started smirking, their eyes glinting with mischief.

"Nobody can see us..But they can hear us..are you thinking what I'm thinking lil buddy?"

"Aye sir!"

A confused Lucy too turned in the direction in which they were looking. Some people walking on the sidewalk, and Natsu and Happy's devilish smiles. Finally, the pieces clicked into place before they could even try and take a step forward.

"Oh no you don't!"

She heaved them away by their ears, and them continuously moaning in pain.

She must look crazy, seemingly holding onto thin air behind her.

"Ow Ow Ow Ow Ow, Lucy stop!"

She let go and the dragon slayer straightened up, dazed.

"Aah this feels a lot better.." he said, rubbing his slightly red ear.
