"I.... I think I Love you Luce" I confessed after I dragged her to the school's river side which is my favorite spot.
"O-oh... uhmmm.... I...." She stuttered. Looking everywhere except my eyes as if she was looking for words to say in response to my confession. Damn I'm nervous.
"I.... I'm sorry Natsu..." She ran away. And I just stood there... And watched her disappear from my sight.
I just sat down and stared at the river...I don't get it... Soo... That's a no then? Well... She ran away after I confesses my love for her.. That's definitely a No. A big heartless No. Huh... guess this is what Juvia feels on a daily basis huh? Gray's such a dick.
After a while of being lost in the river, thinking(Natsu!? Thinking!?! 😱), I finally snapped back to reality and decided that I'm hungry. (Yes. He decides whether he's hungry or not😂) I stood up from where I was sitting and as if just on time I see him running my way with his little legs.
"Natshuuuu!!!!" He stopped right in front of me and was catching his breath.
"Hey what's up buddy? Somethin' wrong?" I sat to try to get on his level, and in the corner of my eye, I saw a crowed surrounding the sakura tree out in the distance. Out of curiosity, I stood up and made my way there without a second thought, wondering what's got peoples attention.
Is it a fight? Is it Laxus vs. Gajeel? Erza vs. Mirajane? Or Gray vs. Erza?!! Oh boy that would be hilarious!! I excitedly ran up to the crowed but before I could even get a second step, I was stopped by Happy blocking my path "N-Natshu! Let's go to the cafeteria! Im hungry" "Later Happy! I wanna see who's getting beat up!" I ran past him but was stopped again by being choked on my scarf due to Happy pulling me backwards. "N-Natshu!! Uhh... L-lets go get some fish!!" "What the heck Happy!?" I choked. After a tug of war with Happy, I finally got to pry him off. "Jeez, we'll get food later, I promise! Just lemme see the fight" I told him then ran and squished myself thought the crowed not giving him the chance to talk.
"Aw man! It would be so hilarious to see----
My fists clenched the very moment my eyes landed on a sight I never wish was real....
I just stood there glaring at the sight of those two.
What the heck Gray?! You knew my feelings for Lucy! I trusted you! You sick bastard!
They finally stopped kissing. And before they even saw me, I turned and left.
On my way back to my favorite spot, I walked past Happy and he just followed me there. I silently sat down and stared at the river.
"Natshu?...... You okay?" Happy asked
"Yeah... Just need some time alone... That's all" I faked a smile without bothering to make eye contact with him.
"...okay.." Before he left, he have me a tight hug then left.
I just sat there in silence and stared at the river. I maybe called "Flames-for-brains" "Fireboy" (Or hot *wink wink*) or just any nickname that has something to do with fire, and my name basically means "born in summer" or just "summer" (Idk. Not sure😅 That's what Google says) But I really Love the river. Just staring at the calming flow of the water is so.... Well.... Calming. It helps me think clearly. That's why I love this spot. Plus, no one really comes here for no particular reason.
After a while of starting at the river, I snapped back to reality when I started to feel droplets landing on me and not a second or two have passed and the rain got heavy real quick. I stood up and ran back inside the school building, into my locker and took a face towel and dried myself off from getting wet from the rain. The bell finally rang and I didn't really feel like attending classes. So I have come to a decision to skip classes for today.
Instead of walking to class, I just walked to wherever my feet takes me to, trying not to get caught skipping classes. I somehow made it at the buildings entrance and at the corner of my eye, I see a familiar bluenette girl right in the middle of the rain. She seemed to be spacing out.
"Heey! Juvia!" I ran up to her, not bothering to bring an umbrella. She turned to me and a smile formed on her face.
"Gray-sama!!!" She ran to me with open arms and a huge smile on her face. But after a few steps..... She fainted. And luckily enough she was close enough for me to reach out and catch her.
"Hey! What's wrong!?" I nervously asked as she looked at me with weak eyes
"Natsu-san...." She softly says before passing out
(Hey I'm not sure how fainting works soo... I'm sorry if I get it wrong?😅)
"Hey! Juvia wake up!" I shaked her (lightly of course) I panicked and carried her bridal style and went on my way to the infirmary as fast as I can.
I finally made it to the infirmary and was greeted with a "What do you humans want!?!?!!" Right off the bat from Granny.
"Yo! Old lady, Juvia needs tone treated right away!" I unconsciously raised my voice at her out of panic.
After she checked, changed her clothes from the uniforms they sell at this school and took care of Juvia, she told me that she fainted cuz she stood out in the rain for too long.
(So to make it clear, idk if your (private) schools sell uniforms in your school too, but they have spares of uniforms they're selling in the infirmary just in case of emergencies but of course the student gets charged from the uniform. And btw I just made that up. XD I hope they do that to our school too)
Granny then instructed me on what to do in taking care of Juvia cuz since I'm here "why not be useful and take care of her" and she just really hates humans. She told me not to worry about skipping class since she'll have me excused in my first class in the morning. I didn't really mind whether I'm excused or not since I did intend to skip class in the first place. So regardless, I don't mind taking care of Juvia at all.
For the last couple minutes all I've been doing is taking the damp towel on Juvia's forhead, dip it on the bowl of warm water, squeeze the towel, and put it back on her forehead every couple minutes.
I took a glance at her and I noticed that..... She's kinds cute.. =/////=
Her cute little nose. Her pale flawless skin. Her rosey pink cheeks. Her blue wavy hair which kinda reminds me of the river. And her adorable sleeping face... (Sounds creepy I know XD)
I unconsciously smiled at how adorable she is. Juvia is so cute. I don't understand how Droopy eyes doest love her back.
After placing the damp towel on her forehead, I start to feel bored and slowly drifted off to sleep...
Juvia woke up startled from that loud sudden noise.
"WHERE IS CHUVIA!?" Juvia hears her best friend burst through the door, screaming.
"Geez and I thought humans are the noisiest"
What the heck is going on?
Juvia looked around, clueless as to where she is and what happened. Juvia soon realizes that Juvia is at the infirmary, and as she looks around, Juvia's eyes landed on a pink headed guy sleeping at the end of the bed peacefully.
"Natsu-san...." That's right. He's the one who caught Juvia when she passed out. I should thank him later.
"Chuvia?! Are you okay?!" Raindrop bursted through the curtain that separates the beds from the rest of the room
"Juvia has a little bit of head ache but she's fine Rei" Juvia smiled at her to reassure her that she's fine
A startled Natsu-san woke up from Raindrop's screams.
"Hey! You! What did you do to her!?" Raindrop pointed at Natsu-san
"Hey don't scream at me! I did nothin wrong!"
"Then what brought you here then?!"
"Wdym what brought me here? Am I not allowed here!?"
"That's not what I meant!""
"Then what'd ya mean then?!"
"Guys!!" Juvia stopped their bickering. "Natsu-san was the one who brought Juvia here. There's no need to worry Rei. Juvia's fine" Juvia explained to her.
"Yeah, I caught Juvia when she fainted due to staying under the heavy rain for too long. So I carried her here" Natsu-san continued
"Ah, well if that's the case then Thank you Natsu!" She bowed. What a change of mood real quick -.-
"Well since you're taking care of Juvia then I guess I can trust you with her then. I gotta get to class. I'll see you later okay Chuvia?" Raindrop then left which leaved Juvia and Natsu-san alone.
Natsu-san started walking up to Juvia and his face started leaning closer to Juvia's.
E-eh?!? Juvia doesn't know what to do?!?!
Natsu-san kept leaning closer and closer to Juvia's face. Out of panic, Juvia just shut her eyes tightly......
