Chapter 1: A Dream for Two
"Hey, you all right?" Gray asks, stuffing a spoonful of ice cream in his mouth.
"Yeah, I'm just exhausted." You sighed, taking a seat in between Natsu and Gray.
"Couldn't sleep?" Lucy gets up to bring you a cup of soothing tea. You thank her when she returns, blowing on the hot surface.
"It's so weird. Lately, I can't sleep. I mean, I do, but I have these weird dreams and when I wake up, it feels like I've ran around the world."
"Maybe you just need someone to spend the night with." A voice says from behind and a hand picks up yours. "And I will gladly spend every night with you until-"
"Leave her alone!" Lucy hits Loke over the head, the celestial spirit pouting at her interference.
"Thanks, but I think I can handle it." You laughed a bit before laying your head on Natsu's shoulder. "I'm using you as a pillow."
"Sure thing." He grins, careful to not make too much movement.
"__(y/n)-chan, you can use me as your pill-" Loke was once again
Chapter 1: The Years After
"Here's your drink, __(y/n)-chan!" You heard a familiar blonde say as she set down your beverage on the table.
"Arigato, Lucy-chan." You smiled at her, your hand reaching out to grab where you believed she put the cup, but grabbed the air instead.

"No problem, thanks again."
"Ne, ne ___(y/n), let's check out the new job postings!" Natsu shouted excitedly.
"I wonder what missions we have this time!" Happy joined in as the fire dragon grabbed your hand, taking you towards the board.
"Natsu! Don't pull her so roughly like that!" Lucy scolded slightly.
"It can't be helped. He's always excited whenever new missions come in." Erza shook her head slightly.

*~Four Years Ago~*
"Ittekimasu!" You shouted to your Fairy Tail friends, holding one bag in your hand and the other waving.
"Kiotsukette, ne?" Mira smiled as you left through the door. You were off to meet with your client for the mission he wanted you to complete. He didn't specify, but he mentioned that it was urgent that someone come to his aide. After hours of traveling, you found yourself in a small town. You went to the address that the client left you, knocking on the front door of his home.
"Yes?" He was an elder male with his wife behind him along with two young children. You guessed that they were his grandchildren.
"I'm here about your request?" You held up the flyer that the man had sent to Fairy Tail.
"Yes, please, come in." He let you enter, the two kids rushing up to you with big, cute eyes.
"Hello there." You smiled gently as they held up their arms.
"Do you wanna play with us, onee-san?"
"Now, now, s
