Author Note:-Sorry for not updating for so long! This is the last chapter I will be updating today. From now on, I will NOT be updating regularly. The reason is given in the in the end.

Anyways, back to the topic. This is a series inspired by Fairy Tail and Meg Cabot's novel "Boy Meets Girl". Please do review to tell me how it is. Constructive criticism appreciated. Flames are to be ignored. Now, here's chapter 5 !

This is not beta-read. I only proofread this.

Journal of Lucy Heartfilia

Oh my God, I am so fired. I can't believe how fired I am. Why did I have to start crying during the interview? Why didn't I think to turn the tape off before I started bawling my head off?Why can't I be like the T.O.D.? SHE would never cry while firing someone. But I don't WANT to be like the T.O.D. I hate her. I should just quit. Now I have to find a new job on top of a new apartment and boyfriend. WHY IS EVERYTHING BAD HAPPENING TO ME ALL AT ONCE? And where the hell is Levy ? She said to meet at Fairy Tail's after work, and so I'm here but she's not, and now I am sitting here by myself pretending to be jotting important business notes on this journal so that creepy guy in the corner won't come over here and start talking to me. Must try to appear like important business woman with no time for casual flirtation in Mexican restaurant.

Oh my God, what if Levy doesn't come and I end up having to eat here by myself and that guy comes over and tries to join me and it turns out he's the vestibule rapist and he follows me back to Levy's building and pulls a knife on me? Thank God I took that self-defense class through the Staff Resource Program. Won't he be surprised when I break his nasal cartilage with an upthrust heel of the hand and send it back into his brain stem, instantly paralyzing him? Although on the whole I would much rather just meet Levy for drinks like we planned.

Oh, God, I need a beer. Poor Mrs. Lopez! I guess she is looking for a job now, too. Only she has a lot more chance than I do of getting something decent. Those cookies were delicious, anybody would hire her in a minute, whereas I am totally useless. I can only type 35 words per minute and God knows I can't supervise, my people skills are for shit, I can't even get a decent boyfriend let alone tell people how to do their jobs. It is such a joke, the paper hiring me, it is just a wonder I have even lasted this long, at this point I should just—Oh, there's Levy, THANK GOD!

Dear Lucy,

Sorry to leave a note taped up to the door like this (hi, Levy, hi, Gajeel), but it's not like you've really given me much of an alternative. I mean, if you'd stop screening your calls at work and on your cell and pick up

once in a while, I wouldn't have to pull this stalkery crap. I've seriously got to talk to you, I'm going crazy here. You won't return my messages, and every time I try to reach you at Levy's, she says you're out. I know you're not out, I know you're probably sitting right there on the couch right now watching freaking Castle, or whatever.

Anyway, about that whole One Day at a Time thing. Look, maybe we WILL be together forever. Or maybe we won't. I mean, I'm not omission. I can't see into the future. I don't know what's going to happen.

Why can't things go back to being the way they were, you know? How come all of a sudden we have to put, like, these labels on things? I mean, like why is it so important to you that I say I'll love you forever?

Why can't I just say I love you, like, for now? Why isn't that enough, all of a sudden? It was enough for the past ten years.

Luce, COME HOME. I miss you. The guys miss you, too.


P.S. I could really use your advice. The studio's being really assholish, they're trying to make us change our name from I Freaking Love Dragons to just Love Dragons. What kind of name is that for a band? Who's gonna buy a record from a band called Love Dragons?

Hi, you've reached Lucy and Natsu. We can't come to the phone right now, so at the tone, please leave a message, and we'll get back to you. Thanks! (Tone) Natsu, you have got to change that message. I don't live there anymore, remember? Anyway, about your note . . . Oh my God, I don't even know why I called. Just forget it, okay? Nothing's changed, I just—Oh, never mind.

(Click) Hi, you've reached Lucy and Natsu. We can't come to the phone right now, so at the tone, please leave a message, and we'll get back to you. Thanks! (Tone) Oh my God, you have got to change that message. It's Levy, by the way. You remember me, right? Your ex-girlfriend's best friend? The word is omniscient, buddy, not omission. Got it? Good. Oh, also, don't come around here anymore. You just make Lucy sad. And no, I'm not drunk right now, but am totally hopped up on hormones, so you'd better be scared, because I swear to God, if I catch you around here again, I'll—

(Click) (Tone) Hi, you've reached Lucy and Natsu. We can't come to the phone right now, so at the tone, please leave a message, and we'll get back to you. Thanks! (Tone) Stupid machine cut me off. I really mean it. Remember that time in college when I threatened to kick the ass of that friend of yours who brought the smack to the house party Lucy and I had? Remember? I didn't care that he had a gun, I wasn't scared of him. Well, that's what I'm going to do to you, too, bud, if you keep on. . . . What do you mean hang up the phone? No, I will not hang up the phone, Gajeel, I happen to be helping Lucy. She had a very bad day and I am just—no, I am not making things worse, I'm helping. I happen to be a trained human resources representative, and I'm—don't you—Give me that!

(Click) Hi, you've reached Lucy and Natsu. We can't come to the phone right now, so at the tone, please leave a message, and we'll get back to you. Thanks! (Tone) Dude, it's Gajeel. Sorry about that. Levy and Lucy went out for mojitos, and Levy just had one, but she's wasted. You know, she's on all those fertility drugs, so she gets really drunk on just like one drink. So, sorry, man. I took the phone away from her and hid it in the closet. She should be all right in the morning. I hope. However, if you ever make Lucy or Levy angry at you or make them cry, I am gonna pummel you so hard that you won't be able to get up for the next 3 days. (Click)

So, how's the chapter? Also comment on the poll on my profile or via reviews about the pairing you want for my first oneshot!

Also, this is to let you all know the reason for the statement in the earlier AN. I am currently in grade 11 preparing for Pre-Med. The Indian Readers will understand why I cannot update. The reason is becuse I, basically don't have the time to update my stories. However, this is my promise to all those who liked this story, favourited, followed it or gave a review, that whenever I will update, I will upload more than for chapter for any story that I update. That's my humble apology-of-sorts for my irregular updates for the next 2 years.

Signing off,
