The next morning I woke up in my own bed. 'When the hell did I get here?' I said to myself. Then I remembered last night. I fell asleep while watching TV. I guess he probably brought me up here.
I smiled at the thought of him carrying me. I started to feel something inside my chest. I quickly shook my head and pushed the feeling aside.
I got up from the bed and went into the bathroom. I made sure to lock Storm's door and hopped into the shower. I stayed there for about fifteen minutes until I got out. I got dressed and went downstairs to the kitchen.
"Let's see what should I have for breakfast" I said to myself while going through the fridge. "I already prepared breakfast for you." a voice said all of sudden. I got startled by the voice and held my hand to my chest. I turned around to see Storm eating at the stable. "Dude how many times do I have to tell you to stop doing that. You are going to give me a heart attack one of these days."
He chuckled and I walked towards him and saw a plate full of scrambled eggs, bacon, hash browns, and toast in the seat next to him. "Is that all for me?" I asked and he nodded and gave me a wide smile.
I sat down next to him and started to eat. Everything on the plate tasted so damn good. Damn this guy can cook. "Wow.This is honestly one of the best breakfast I have ever had." I said to him. "Oh well thank you." he said while getting up and putting his dish in the sink.
"Hey I'm going to for a run. I'll see you in about a half an hour." he said to me as I'm eating. I nodded and said "Just be careful." He gave me a nod and went out the door.
After about five minutes, I finished my breakfast and cleaned up. I then went to my room and changed into a pair of shorts, a training bra and some sneakers.
I went into the backyard and stood in my training area that was built in the past. There was a big box filled with white sand in the center and surrounding it was all kinds of stuff that made noise, like gongs, and bells.
I know it sounds weird, but the sand is to track my stealth and movements. The bells and gongs are to enhance my hearing. I would have to wear a blind fold while someone would throw beads at the gongs. I would have to listen very carefully to pinpoint the location and make sure that I am ready in case of an attack. It works.
I stood at the center of the sand and closed my eyes. I stayed like that for a couple of seconds, trying to concentrate and slow my breathing down.
When I was ready, I opened my eyes and started to move. I started by doing an elbow kick. My foot landed back on the sand and I swept my leg around, doing a full 360 turn. I did a couple of jabs mixing it with a cross punch then an uppercut.
This went on for a while. I even added a couple of fire punches here and there and even some fire kicks. I was getting really into it.
While I was moving around, I felt a presence behind me and I quickly turned and blew fire. My fire was being pushed by someone blowing ice. I withdrew my fire and the person withdrew his ice.
When the coast was clear and saw Storm standing there. "Woah take it easy Mrs. Natsu Dragneel." he said chuckling. I laughed at his comment and said "It's not my fault you tried to sneak up on Mr. Grey Fullbuster."
"Touche" he said while laughing. I laughed along with him. "What are you doing?" he asked while walking towards me. "Just some little training. Want to try?" I said and he replied "why not."
I waved him over and I ran to the side of the box and grabbed a blind fold. I walked back to him and he raised his eyebrow. "You are going to try and enhance your hearing. When you put on the blind fold, I will throw beads around hitting the bells and gongs and then you will pinpoint where it was and prepare to attack." He nodded and put on the blind fold.
I lead him to the middle and grabbed a bowl full of beads. I stayed silent and walked around the box quietly. I grabbed a bead and threw it against a gong. He reacted quickly and got into a fighting stands towards the gong I hit. I did it again to another bell and he reacted again.
We did this for about fifteen minutes. He was very good. It was very interesting to watch. I was very impressed.
I walked up to his face and went up on my tip toes and took off his blind fold. He squinted as his eyes adjusted and then his eyes landed on mine.
His eyes were like a dark ocean at night. Those eyes were luring me in. It felt like his eyes staring into my soul. I swallowed the lump in had in my throat as he moved closer to my face.
Just as our lips were going to touch, I backed out and said "Um I should go take a shower and make lunch for us." With that I walked back to the house. I could feel the heat in my face of embarrassment.
