A Hidden PhantomI'll never forget that night in the alley.
I thought I was safe, surrounded by friends. Phantom Lord was after us, but we planned to stick together. Safety in numbers, right? But it was not enough. He was too strong....
Later, I wouldn't remember the trip to the park or how we were hung on a tree—a showy display in order to start a war between our guilds. I'm glad. I don't want to know the details. They told us who did it, though. It was him—the iron dragon slayer. My teammates and I swore we would never forgive him.
...So, why? Why do I have feelings for him?
He hurt me. He humiliated me. No. Not just me. Lucy, Natsu, Jet, Droy...my guild, Fairy Tail. I take pride in how we defeated Phantom Lord. But, after the fact, Makarov showed mercy and let him join our guild. How could he? Does he not realize the affect it will have on everyone? On me? I have spent days, weeks looking over my shoulder, waiting for a hidden phantom to strike again. Now, I will enter the guild hall wit
