♪☆♪☆♪ Erza's POV ♪☆♪☆♪
I sit at a table and observe Lucy. No matter how you look at it, she looks troubled....But she refused to tell me anything.....
I continue to look at Lucy when I hear someone call my name.
"..rza..Erza!" I snap out of my trance and notice Gray. "What are you doing? You look like a stalker the way you're looking at Lucy."
"What? I was doing no such thing!" Just then, Natsu came flying and landed on Lucy.
"Huh? When'd you get injured, Lucy?" What? I look away from Gray and notice that part of her arm was covered in bandages.
"Uhhh...I accidentally cut my arm while making breakfast." I hear Lucy reply.
"Hey Natsu! Let's fight!" Gray says from behind me. Natsu and Gray start battling and I walk to Lucy.
"Lucy, did you really injure yourself while cooking?"
"Just tell me the truth."
"What are you talking about?" Lucy turns her head and avoids eye contact with me.
"You don't cook." I could see Lucy's eyes widen. She starts sweating and then sighs.
"I can't hide from you, can I? Come with me." We walk outside and head to an area behind the guild.
♪☆♪☆♪ Lucy's POV ♪☆♪☆♪
I tell Erza everything that has happened to me the last few days.
She seemed very shocked and needed some time to think about it. I ask her to keep it a secret and she leaves.
"Lucy~" Someone said in a playful yet creepy voice. I look up and see Lisanna walking towards me with a smirk on her face.
"What do you want?" I ask her with a hint of disdain in my voice.
"I want you to stay away from my boyfriend."
"I can't do anything if he comes to me." I say, attempting to shake her up a little but nothing happens.
"Are you sure you can show that attitude?"
"What do you mean?"
"I'll tell everybody your secret."
"I-I don't know what you're talking about" I said nervously. Suddenly my arm was in immense pain. Damn it! Why does it have to happen now!? It took all my strength just to suppress a scream.
As the pain subsided, I opened my eyes but my vision was foggy and I had very little energy left.
"Stay away from Natsu. Or else" I heard Lisanna say. She walked away and I was left sitting on the ground with no energy. I lean on the tree as I slowly fall asleep.
I woke up and the sun was about to set. When I return to the guild, Natsu just came back from his job.
"Hey Lucy!" Natsu came up to me from behind and put his arm around my shoulder. I elbow him in the stomach and walk away. I could see Lisanna smiling at me in approval.
As I exit the guild, someone grabs my wrist from behind and spins me around to face him.
"Lucy, I need to talk to you" Natsu says.
"It better be important because I'm busy" I lied. I start walking away.
"I saw you and Lisanna talking earlier." What!?
"I-I have no idea w-what you're talking about"I get nervous and fumble with my words.
"I know what I saw. I heard everything" How much does he know? Was he there when I was talking with Erza? I'm so confused!
"I don't what you're taking about. You must have imagined it."
"Then what's this!" He grabs my arm and burns off the bandages. The mark was clearly there, the hand a third of the way around the 'clock'. I retracted my arm and quickly covered it with my arm.
Why do you even care?" I scream at him. "You're dating Lisanna!"
"No I'm not. I broke up with her."
"Because I fell in love with someone else. I fell in love with you." My face turns a bright red and I stumble with my words.
" Well I don't like you!" I ran away and leave Natsu standing there.
Well inside, I'm bursting in joy.
