I Thought You Meant Forever
"Natsu?" She whispered hesitantly, her head tilted upwards. "The hell do you want?!" He snapped. Lucy's heart sank to the pit of her stomach, tears threatening to spill from her eyes.
She hurried away, nearly tripping in her effort to run - run anywhere else. As soon as he was out of her sight, her knees buckled under her, causing Lucy to collapse. "I thought- y-you said forever... Natsu." The flow of tears wouldn't stop, no matter how hard she desperately tried to keep them at bay.
"Lucy Heartfilia?" Despite her grief, she got up almost immediately. Her head turned as she looked around with scrunched eyebrows and a hand wiping at the corners of her eyes, "Huh?"
Next thing she knew, her eyes had been blindfolded and her mouth covered.
"Mmph!" Her muffled cries faded away just as her consciousness did.
However, Dragon Slayers have very keen hearing.
It had been one month since Team Fairy Tail had returned from the Parallel world known as Edolas. There were such peaceful times in the guild, but as fate would have it... it didn't last long. Something strange had started happening, and Lucy was caught right in the middle of it.
Natsu seemed strangely distant, in fact, almost all of Fairy Tail ignored their dear Celestial Mage. In the midst of Lucy's confusion , a young woman joins the guild.
Not long after that, Lucy disappears without a trace.
Has her fate been doomed from the start? Or will her comrades find a way to rescue her from Hell's grasp before it's too late?
...Do they even care enough to try?
