Hey, everybody! I just got this idea last night, and I've been
brain storming about it. So lets watch the chapters unfold!
P.S. Natsu has the same appearance, power and personality from Rise of a Dragon in case you ask! This is a different story then the cannon.
"(Yawn), man I sure hope the client isn't going to be upset, I am not in the mood for complaints." Natsu said as he was walking towards a town in the distance. Natsu was someone who acquired things and delivered them to his clients. He was an independent mage, meaning he answered to no one, but himself. He was delivering something to a client in the town ahead. He was now at the gates as the guards approached him.
"Good morning sir, what brings you to Gracia?" One of them asked.
"I'm delivering a item to a client here." He answered. The guards then looked at each other then nodded they're heads.
"Um, is something wrong?" Natsu asked, raising his eyebrow.
"No, don't worry. Please go about your business." They said. Natsu then proceeded into the town as he continued walking down the road. The town was a huge open road like place as it looked like a big trading city. Natsu didn't get anymore then five feet into the city before merchants were trying to sell him things. He pushed them aside as he tried to make his way through the crowd. Finally after five minutes of shoving off swarming traders, Natsu then found a bench next to a fountain which he sat down on.
"Sigh, ok lets check the name and address." He then reached into his coat pocket and pulled out a folded piece of paper that had the clients information written down."Allllright, let's see...Ultear Milkovich,Guild Master, bring old magic ring, ayada,yada,yada...huh? Mermaid Heel?" Natsu was confused, normally he would meet the client, then deliver the item, then it was done."I guess I better find it then." He then stood up and began walking through town. He decided to ask someone for directions, he came up to one man and asked.
"Excuse me, but do you know where I can find the Mermaid Heel guild building?" The man took a few seconds to think before answering.
"It's over there past the bakery shop, although I wouldn't bother. They only accept woman."
"Oh no, i'm just making a delivery to the guild master." Natsu said.
"WHAT?! REALLY?! HEY, CAN YOU PLEASE TELL ME WHAT IT"S LIKE IN THERE? I HEARD THE WOMAN THERE ARE BE-GAHRG!" The man's ear was then pulled on by a ticked off wife as she dragged him off saying something about no dinner for the night. Natsu sweat dropped as he then ignored him and began walking towards the guild building. He had made it, as he stood in front of the doors. It was a HUGE building that looked like a mansion, or some fancy hotel with the words Mermaid Heel."Dang, these people must be super rich if they can afford this." He looked at the doors and was about to reach before he stopped and remembered what the man said.
"Oh yeah, this is a woman's guild, I guess I better knock." In all of Natsu's travels, if their is anything he learned about woman, it's better to knock then enter. He then knocked on the door with his fist. He waited a few seconds before a lacrima floated up, that looked like a crystal ball as a woman's face came on it.
"What business do you have here?"
"Ahh," Natsu reached in his pockets for the request and showed it in front of the lady saying." I'm here on a request for Ultear Milkovich." The woman in the crystal ball made a surprised sound."Wait, you mean your here to talk about the ring?" She said.
"No, I already have it, see?" Natsu held up a silver ring with a blood red stone it.
"Ah, splendid! I'll be right down!" She said happily, then the lacrima turned off and went back down on the ground. A few minutes later Natsu was tapping his foot and crossing his arms, then the doors suddenly opened to reveal a young woman with black hair and white skin, she was wearing a revealing blue kimono and she was holding a stack of paper.
"Ahh, sorry about the delay. I've been so busy I couldn't get down here soon enough." She apologized.
"Don't worry about it, i'm used to it." Natsu said as he scratched his head smiling.
"Well now, please come with me." She said as she turned around.
"Wait, I mean..are you sure it's alright if go in here? I heard it's pretty much limited to girls."
"It's alright if your with me, just stay close." She said and with that, Natsu then began to follow Ultear into the guild as the door closed behind them. No sooner had Natsu entered, his eye was wide open as he looked at a place that could only be described as a high-class hotel feeling. The lobby had blue carpet and a large chandelier that lit up the whole place. Natsu continued walking as he looked around. "Wow." He said out loud. Ultear smiled at his reaction.
"It's great isn't it? Although it's a little smaller then what I had in mind, but this is acceptable."
"Acceptable? This place place looks like a friggin' 10 star hotel." Natsu said as he looked everywhere in awe.
"Alright, I have to take care of something really quick, could you wait over there on that bench?" She said as she pointed out a large bench next to a potted tree.
"Sure, you won't take long will you?" Natsu asked a little worried.
"Oh, don't worry, I just have to deliver this to a office real quick, I'll be back in a few minutes." And with that she disappeared. Natsu then sighed and sat down on the bench leaning back. He could hear various things due to his enhanced human senses, but what caught his ear was nearby onlookers.
"Hey, is that a guy over there?" A woman asked as she stared at Natsu.
"Yeah, what's he doing here? Doesn't he know this is a woman's guild?"
"Someone should go tell him." Slowly, more and more woman gathered around as they saw Natsu sitting with his eye closed. He starting to sweat nervously, if these women didn't stop staring at him, he was going to lose it.
"Um, excuse me sir?" Natsu's eye slowly opened and he saw a petite girl with orange hair braided into two pigtails, she wore overalls and red sandals.
"What is it?" Natsu asked bluntly.
"Um, is their a reason why your here?" She asked politely.
"Ultear told me to wait here, she was supposed to be back right about now." He said as he looked for her.
"Oh, ok. Me and everyone were just curious as to why a man was here." Natsu then raised an eyebrow.
"Is it really strange to see a guy here?" Natsu asked.
"Well, yeah. As far as I know, your the only man that's ever stepped foot in this building."
"Wow, I guess that explains the staring. Don't worry about it, I'll be outta your guys..." He then looked around. "...ladies hair before you know it."
"Ah, I didn't mean to offend you or anything, i'm sorry." The girl said frowning.
"Uh, no, it's ok. You didn't do anything wrong." Natsu said waving his hands reassuring her.
" Thank you, your really nice mister." She said smiling.
"Uh, call me Natsu, I don't do Mister."
"Ok, then..Natsu-san." She said nervously. Natsu chuckled a little.
"So whats your name?"
"Ah, i'm Beth, nice to meet you Natsu-san!" Natsu then smiled as he got up." Well it's nice to meet you to. Now, if Ultear would just hurry up an-" Natsu's eye then shot open as he jumped back as he dodged a incoming blast of lightning magic. He then looked towards the source and saw some one with red hair, wearing some kind of white and yellow armor holding a spear, floating in the air.
"OI, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING, ARE YOU TRYING TO KILL-!?" Natsu then felt a presence behind him as he quickly turned to see a black haired girl about to hit him with a long sheathed sword.
"Re-quip!" He shouted as he summoned a katana also sheathed. The two swords then collided, as blast of wind was sent past everyone as Natsu was in a sword lock with the black haired girl."Hey what's the big idea attacking me outta the blue like this?!" He demanded. The black haired girl was staring wide eyed."He blocked my strike." She thought, they then both backed off as they both jumped back. Natsu then noticed the red haired girl, as she said,"Freeze intruder! You are surrounded, there is no place for you to run!" She then landed right next the black haired girl.
"Onee-sama, i'm sorry ,this man is much stronger then he looks." The black haired said to the red head.
"It's alright Kagura, we can still take him down." Natsu was confused. Why would they attack him all of a sudden? Something then suddenly struck him.
"WAIT! TIME OUT!" Natsu said as he held up his hand."I think I recognize you two, your Erza Scarlett..and your Kagura Mikazuchi."
"What of it, intruder?" Erza asked as she readied her spear.
"Why the hell are you attacking me? I didn't do anything wrong."
"This guild is women only, men are not allowed here."
"I'm not an intruder, i'm just here to deliver something." He said as he reached into his pocket and pulled out the request. Erza then slowly walked up and took the paper and went over it.
"This is a S-class request, how did you come by this?" She asked.
"It was on the board at the place I work at. I was supposed to bring this ring to your guild master." He said holding it up. Erza and everyone made a noise of surprise as they saw it.
"W-wait, you actually got the ring?" Erza said shocked.
"It wasn't easy, I had to go through hell just to get this thing...Huh, whats wrong?" He asked confused.
"I..I was supposed to get this ring, but I couldn't find it. Then Ultear said that she would send out a request to a different guild. I'm so foolish." She said looking down in gloom. Kagura then came over and tried to cheer her up.
"Wow, I must have hurt her pride or something."Uhh, right. Listen, i'm not not an intruder I just came to drop this off, I swear."
"Ah, looks like a big gathering!" Everyone turned to see Ultear looking over towards Natsu and the others. "It's about time, in the past few minutes by myself I was nearly killed!" He shouted angrily.
"My apologies, Erza can enforce the rules a bit sometimes."
"A BIT!? SHE NEARLY ZAPPED ME INTO PIXIE DUST!" He shouted with a tick mark on his head.
"Ultear, what's this man doing here, you know that men are strictly forbidden here." Kagura asked.
"I recall saying that no man may join, but I don't recall ever saying that a man can never come here, do I need to remind you two again?" She said in a serious tone.
"No Master, please forgive me." Kagura then bowed. Ultear then sighed then smiled.
"Well, as long as he's still in one piece, it's ok."
"Like hell it is." Natsu thought, as he then made his sword disappear.
"Well then, I brought your payment, 1,000,000 jewels." Natsu then grabbed the money then counted it and found no problems. He then handed her the ring which she took."Pleasure doing business with you, later." He then re-quipped the money and began walking out.
"Ah, wait just a second!" Ultear said as she walked over to him." Are you going to be staying long?" She asked.
"Well, I gotta stay for couple weeks. I got another request I have to take care of here." He said thinking.
"Oh, that's perfect! Why don't you come back tonight for dinner?"
"Huh?" Natsu said dumbfounded.
"EHHHHee!?" Everyone in the guild said.
"Think of it as a apology. Well then, we'll see you tonight!"
"Wai-wha-?" Natsu couldn't get out a single word, as Ultear shoved him towards the door. She then turned around and had a evil smile on her face as she looked at Kagura and Erza who felt shiver's up they're spines.
Well, I'd say thats a good kick start. See you in the next one!
