Natsu Dragneel knew nothing of his life before Igneel. But, when he meets the Black Mage Zeref for the first time, he starts to remember his life, one painful memory at a time. In particular, he remembers the night when everything went wrong. But who is the girl that protected him? And why is Zeref, the most powerful Black Mage in history, appearing? When the truth is revealed, will the Dragon Slayer stop at nothing to find what is left of his past? And what if the past was best left buried? I do not own Fairy Tail (if I did, then I would cause mayhem in the series) all of the characters (excluding my own) are Hiro Mashima's, but the plot is mine.
