9. Cheater

Lucy POV

It was 8:30 by the time we finished. I got up and Natsu helped me clean the table. I loved this. The feeling that I could kiss him and hold him and it wouldn't bother him because he was already mine. He would always be mine. He would never leave me, ever. I wouldn't allow him.

"Lucy..." Natsu whispered into my ear, breaking me from my thoughts. 

"Huh?" I put down the plate I had been washing and was about to turn and face him but he wrapped his arms around my waist and lifted me up off the ground.

"Hey! Put me down! I'm not done washing the dishes!" I said, trying to unlock myself from him.

"You can do that later, for now, let's do something together!" he told me.

An image of him and me, kissing passionately on the bed popped up in my head and I blushed. "Wha- What do you want to do?"

"I don't know. Hey, we could watch the rest of this movie you're watching. Oh, look, you forgot your ice cream on the couch and now it's all melted. What a waste of food!" he scolded, picking up the chocolate tub of ice cream.

"Not my fault! Someone decided to show up unexpectedly. Not mentioning any names *cough* Natsu *cough*," I said, coughing in a fake attempt to conceal his name from being heard.

"Not my fault! Someone had to go and steal my heart!" he retorted, putting me down to sit on the edge of my couch. "Not mentioning any names *cough* Lucy *cough*."

I smacked him. "Shut up!"

He smiled and gave me a soft quick kiss before shoving me playfully. I fell on top of the couch with a squeak and while trying to get up, my hand slipped on the edge of the couch and I fell off.

He looked down at me and laughed. "You really like falling off of things don't you?"

"SHUT IT!" I shouted, throwing one of the couch cushions at him.

He blocked it and used it to bonk me on the side of my head. 

"Ah so you wanna play like that do you?" I reached for another couch cushion and got up off the floor and attacked him. I hit him several times as he tried to block it, running away and trying to hit me with his cushion. We ran around the couch for awhile before he stopped pretending to be weak and turned on me. He then knocked me onto the couch and started tickling my sides.

"Stop Natsu! Stop!" I managed to say through my giggles and laughter. "I can't breathe! I can't breathe!"

"Say you surrender!" he demanded, not stopping despite my pleads.

"I... will... NOT SURRENDER!" I claimed, taking the cushion he had let go in order to tickle me and with it, I shoved it in his face. 

"Wha?" he asked dumbly. He let go of me and stumbled back a bit, caught off guard. I leaped off the couch and made a run for my room, laughing at his face. I heard him come after me a few seconds later and quickly grabbed a pillow off the bed and hid by the door, waiting in the dark for him to come. Thirty seconds later, he came running through the door and when he faced my direction, I swung the pillow at him, knocking him sideways. 

"Hey! Quit it! I just wanna talk!" he lied, taking another pillow from my bed.

"Not a chance sucker!" I chanted, laughing and dashing back towards the living room.

"Please?" he said, trying to catch up.

"NO!" I yelled over my shoulder. He reached me and we ran around the couch for awhile before he stopped and I held up the pillow, ready to strike.

He smirked and jumped over the couch to where I was standing and took the pillow from me before I had a chance to react. I shrieked and made a run for it but he grabbed me from the waist and pulled me towards him. 

"Ha! Caught you!" he exclaimed, smiling triumphantly.

"You're always cheating! I'm not gonna play with you anymore you cheater, cheater, pumpkin eater!" I retorted.

"Aw you're just a sore loser that's all. C'mon give me a big, wet one," he told me, pulling me closer.

I raised my eyebrow at him in a question. "A big, wet one? What the heck is that?"

He stopped and looked at me. "Excuse me?"


"You're telling me you have NEVER seen The Little Rascals?"

"Um... no?"

He gasped and tore his arms away from me, pretending to look at me with disgust. "What kind of childhood did you have? I mean c'mon! I had a pretty crappy childhood but I still saw The Little Rascals! You should be ashamed of yourself. I don't even want to touch you."

He turned around and crossed his arms over his chest.

I pouted. "Well, I had a pretty crappy childhood too!"

He turned and squinted his eyes at me. "That cannot be used as an excuse as I have already told you that I had a crappy childhood and I still saw it."

"Then we'll watch it sometime together okay? Would that be enough for you?" I offered, closing the distance between us.

He made it look like he was thinking about it. "Mkay! I'll forgive you. For now, as an apology, give me a kiss."

He leaned closer to me. As our lips were about to meet, I brought out the cushion that I had hidden behind my back. I smacked him in the face. "Cheater!" I started laughing uncontrollably as he made a retarded looking face. I fell to the floor and started rolling around, trying to calm myself.

He looked down at me, grinned, and chuckled. "You know, this gives a whole new meaning to 'Rolling On Floor, Laughing'.

I was too busy laughing to pay attention to him. Once I calmed down, I said, "You should have seen your FACE!"

He growled and picked me up, placing me on the couch. "Now, look her missie, I won't tolerate anyone making fun of my face in front of my face like that. Do you want me to tease you again?"

My eyes widened and I blushed, shaking my head furiously. "No! I don't like it!" Truth was, I hated it. When he had teased me for the very first time, I had felt just the slightest bit irritated. Irritated at the thought that we were so close to kissing and yet he just kissed the side of my mouth. I wanted him to kiss me and honestly, if I could, I would want to kiss him forever. His lips were firm yet so soft, as if he thought that if he pressed his lips any harder, I would break. I loved the way he was so gentle and loving. Not like any boy I had ever seen. He was the one I had been looking for my entire life. Throughout my high school and college years, I'd always kept an eye out for someone affectionate and sweet, yet I could never find the right guy. No matter how hard, I just never found the right guy and yet here he was, standing before me. By mere coincidence I had met him, as if we were destined to be together and I wouldn't waste this chance.

"Alright then," he said, bringing me away from my thoughts. "I won't tease you but if you should behave badly again, I will!"

"Alright, just kiss me already!"

"Patience is key to success."

"Boy, you have no idea how patient I've been waiting for a man like you and now that I've found you," I told him, grabbing him by the collar of his shirt and pulling him close. "Patience can kiss my ass."

I pulled him closer, closing the distance between our lips.
My eyes shot open as I heard a scream. I looked around, and realized we had fallen asleep during the movie. I reached for the control and paused off the television, at the same time realizing that I had fallen asleep on top of Natsu. He was slowly opening his eyes and looked at me, although I could barely see him as the only source of light was coming from the T.V.

"When did we fall asleep?" he asked, groggily, sitting up but I quickly pushed him back down.

"Where are you going?"

"I'm going to sleep! Come on, you should go put on your pj's and get in bed," he suggested, and gently lifted me up off him.

I made my body go slack. "I don't want to. And you can't make me."

He looked at me. "Have you learned nothing at all from today?"

"Wha-" I was interrupted as he answered my question and lifted me up princess style.

I sighed. "Cheater."

He gave a sleepy laugh and turned off the television before carrying me to my room. When we got there, he put me on the bed and he grabbed a shirt off the ground which had fallen in result from having us strip the bed of its pillows. He opened it up and I watched with growing embarrassment as he widened his eyes, finding it to be the shirt that he gave me.

"You wear this as your pajamas?" he inquired, unable to keep a smile of his face.

I blushed. "Just give it to me." I got up and snatched it from him, starting to take off my shirt but he quickly lowered my hands. 

"Wait till I'm out of the room!"

"Hurry up and get out then!" I ordered.

"Gotcha," he said, walking out of the room and closing the door.

Sleep still threatening to close my eyes, I got dressed and was about to walk out with just his shirt when I realized that it didn't cover my underwear. I searched through the drawers and found some comfy pajama booty shorts to sleep in. I quickly put them on and opened the door. I saw the light on in the guest room and I walked over, finding that Natsu was getting to get into bed. 

"What are you doing?" I asked.

He looked up from undoing the bed. "I'm getting the bed ready."

"Why don't you just sleep with me?"


"What? Why not? We were sleeping just fine in the living room," I reminded him, leaning against the doorframe.

"That was incidental."

"Well, what's the big deal?"

He looked up at me and sighed. "I don't know if I can handle that."

"What do you mean you don't know if you would be able to handle it? You handled it just fine right now," I prompted.

"Look I'm not sleeping with you in the same bed and that's final. I really like that shirt on you," he complimented.

I groaned and he walked over to me planting a kiss on my forehead. "Go to sleep."

"Fine," I reluctantly agreed. "But at least give me a real kiss."

He smiled and gave me a kiss before going back to the living room to get me my pillows. He gave them to me and lead me to my room and watching as I got into bed. I glared at him once I was all done and ready for bed.

"Don't give me that look," he instructed and gave me another goodnight kiss. "Goodnight."

I gave him a big sigh. "Goodnight."

He turned off the lights and shut the door behind him, leaving me feeling so lonely in the dark. Eventually after a few minutes, I gave in to sleep and shut my eyes, hoping for a nice dream.
It only seemed like a couple of minutes had passed before I woke up again. It was still really dark and I turned to look at my clock. 12:30. What time had it been when I feel asleep?

I turned over and tried to engulf myself in sleep but I then thought of Natsu and the thought of sleeping with him flooded my mind, destroying all thoughts of going back to sleep in my own bed. I got out of my bed and silently opened my door and crept to the guest bedroom where he was sleeping peacefully. I hesitated, not sure if this was such a good idea as if I got in the bed with him, it would wake him up.

"What are you doing?"

I jumped and looked at Natsu, who was propped up on his elbow, looking at me. He turned on the small lamp on the dresser next to the bed. I immediately noticed he wasn't wearing his shirt. I blushed. ""I'm sorry. I didn't mean to wake you up."

"Nah. I can't really fall asleep so you don't have to apologize. What happened?"

An idea entered my head and I looked at him, trying to look a bit frightened. "I had a bad dream."

He looked at me suspiciously and laughed softly, shaking his head and opening the blankets, gesturing for me to come. I smiled and quickly made myself comfortable, turning off the lamp as I did. 

"Liar," he whispered in my ear.

I smiled at him and pressed against his bare skin. He wrapped me inside his arms and enveloped me in warmth.

"You know you wanted to sleep with me too," I confessed for him.

"Just go to sleep already."

"Goodnight," I told him.

"Goodnight. Love you."

I brightened at the words. "Love you too."
I found myself walking in the hallways of my old high school. I was going to class when I saw a boy with black hair and a scarf around his neck that looked like scales. He was picking up his books which had fallen to the ground when an older looking boy with fiery yellow hair and a scar in the shape of a lightning bolt running down across his right eye bumped into him. Any other day, I probably would have overlooked him but just as I was walking away, I saw the boys face and it almost made me want to cry. He looked so sad and I immediately felt bad, walking over to where he was and started helping him. He looked up at me, eyes widened in shock. I smiled. "Hi."

"Hello," he muttered, so soft I barely heard him.

He was surprisingly handsome, and in the back of my mind I thought, He looks just like Natsu.

It was always a weird sensation when I was dreaming. It was like I was playing two parts at the same time. I was being the me in the dream and at the same moment, I was watching the dream unfold before me. I realized I was remembering the moment I first met Natsu and I smiled, so happy I could cry. I watched as I waved goodbye to the boy and the dream dissolved into blackness. I woke up with tears in my eyes, joyful that I had regained that lost memory. Joyful because such a small act of kindness had impacted my life greatly. I was so happy that I burst into tears.
