~Lucy Heartfilia~

Lucy looked up from her bed as the door of her hospital room opened, running her fingers over her keys softly.

"Lucy! You're awake!" Natsu said, smiling widely and a small boy popped around the door frame, smiling widely and sprinting forward.

"Lu-shee!" He cried, wrapping his arms around her waist and burying his face in her chest.

"N-Natsu!" She said, started and Natsu ran forward, yanking the boy from her and glaring at him.

"Sorry, Luce." Natsu said. "This...well....its Happy." Natsu placed his hand on the boys head and Lucy looked at him. "We were attacked by this weird girl and...she...turned Happy into a human." He said simply.

"Am I still sleeping?" Lucy asked, rubbing her hand and Natsu smiled.

"You've been sleeping long enough, Luce." He said and she smiled. "How are you feeling?" He asked and she looked at her hand. After she had passed out, her hand had been wrapped in bandages, completely covering her fingers and up to her mid forearm. She touched it and then her keys. All of them had some form of the black cloud on them, Loke's, Plue's, Lyra's and Aquarius's completely black.

"I'm....ok." She sighed finally and Natsu reached over, touching Capricorn's key.

"You don't have to worry about them, Luce." He murmured and she looked at him. He gave her a heartwarming smile as he pulled the keys from her, holding them up. "They're all strong. I know they'll get through this." He said and she smiled, a soft blush covering her cheeks.

"Natsu...." She murmured.

"They llllllllike each other." Happy snickered and she glared at him.

"Just because your not a cat doesn't mean I won't throw you out a window." She snapped and Happy dived behind Natsu, peeking past his side.

"Lu-shee's so mean." He sniffed, tears dripping down his cheeks. Natsu smiled at him and looked at Lucy.

"Are you alright?" Natsu asked again, as if he needed to confirm it. Lucy smiled and nodded.

"Yeah. I've been better but I feel better than I did before." She said and he smiled, standing. Lucy reached for her keys but Natsu tucked them into the pocket of his black vest.

"Nope. I'll watch over them." He said to silence her protests. "You focus on getting better and I'll protect them. Alright?" Lucy looked at him and smiled.

"Alright."

~Gray Fullbuster~

Gray sat with his back to the door on the outside balcony of the room he was in, glass in hand and heels crossed over one another as they rested against the bar. Knocking sounded for the third time but he ignored it, placing the glass of cool water to his lips as he tapped his foot to an imaginary beat.

"Oi! Gray! Open up!" Natsu's voice called as he banged his fist against the door. "Come on man! You can't stay in there forever!" Gray sighed and stood, walking back through the room. He placed the glass on the table in the room and made his way towards the door, looking through the peek hole.

"What do you want?" He griped and Natsu looked up.

"To be let into my room. Which you, by the way, are currently in." Natsu said, crossing his arms. "Also, I want to talk."

"You? You want to talk. Really?" Gray asked and Natsu raised an eyebrow.

"No! I want you out of the room!"
