In the guild of Fairy Tail, it was peaceful. Well as peaceful as this guild could possibly get. But a worried looking Mirajane stood behind the bar cleaning a glass she had already cleaned 7 times.
"Mira?" the youngest take-over mage, Lisanna, asked, giving her sister a cautious look. "Everything ok? You've cleaned that glass a dozen times now."
Mira set the glass down gently, turning to her sister. "I'm just a bit worried. I had a bad feeling about the job that Natsu and Lucy took, and they aren't back yet. Maybe it's my active imagination."
Lisanna laughed. "You just worry too much. They're fine! It's Natsu, remember? He probably destroyed something and they are being made to fix it."
This brightened Mira up. "You're right. What was I thinking? I sometimes find myself hoping he won't destroy anything while Lucy is there because it makes her upset. Oh well. I've just got to accept that will never happen."
Everyone who heard laughed merrily and started telling stories about times that Natsu had messed up or destroyed something. Reedus brought out his sketches and paintings to show some of the times, too. This put Mira at ease but she still had that feeling in the back of her mind.
A little ways down the bar, Makarov was still not being put to ease. He had the same bad feeling but would rather not voice it to scare his children. He prayed to Mavis that his two kids would come home safely and that Natsu had just messed something up. On second thought, he would rather not have Natsu mess anything up for he would get in more trouble with the magic council….. again.
It was nearing the end of the day and everyone was relaxed. That was until Gajeel, who had been sitting in his corner, and Wendy, who had been near the bar, suddenly stood up and looked to the door, Wendy looking scared and Gajeel looking a little worried. At this point, everyone had stopped talking to look between the two dragon slayers and the door.
Not even a minute later, the guild doors burst open to a horrific sight. Natsu stood there heavily panting, blood coming down the side of his head, tears rolling down his cheeks, and several bad wounds on his body, his legs barely keeping him up. In his arms was an even terribly sight. Lucy had a bleeding gash going up and across her face (under right eye, across bridge of nose, and over left eye). She had a wound going across her chest and it looked like she had been stabbed in the stomach. Her legs looked broken in different places too.
Shock covered everyone's face. No one moved.
"Save…..her…" Natsu lost consciousness and started falling forward.
