Kanji's POV


I dragged myself out of bed like I do every morning. I hopped in the shower and did my usual morning routine. Brushed me teeth, combed my shaggy blonde hair. I got dressed in my usual attire, a pair of jeans and an unzipped sweatshirt.

"Guess I should head to the guild." I mumbled locking the door behind me "Wonder if Erza will come back today?"

I wandered the streets of town making my way towards the guild. I took me a few minutes but I sauntered my way into the guild. It was early so the only people around were Mirajane and the old man.

"Morning Grandpa, Morning Mira." I said throwing myself down on the bar with a yawn.

"Good morning." Mira said with her usual cheerfulness.

"Morning my boy." Gramps said.

Mira brought me food like she does every morning and I let out a sigh as she placed the plate of toast next to me.

"Missing Erza?" she asked me with a raised brow and a bit of a smirk.

"Somewhat. It's been so boring lately. Natsu and Erza are both out on missions and Gray is being lazy and won't take a job with me." I explained.

"Why not just take one of the S-Class jobs from upstairs?" Gramps asked.

"Bleh, I don't do serious work." I complained.

"I have no idea how you achieved S-Class." Gramps mumbled.

The doors opened and the usual crowd filled in. Cana sat down next to me and Gray wasn't too far behind her.

"Yo!" was all Gray said as he sat down.

"What's up?" I said.

"Nothing much, and before you asked no, I don't want to take a job." He said

"Whatever. I have a feeling something interesting is going to happen today." I told him smiling.


Most of the day was pretty boring. I spent it sitting around the guildhall talking with Gray and some other people. During our conversation about nothing we were rudely interrupted.

"I'm back!"

Everyone turned and saw Natsu and Happy and the door accompanied by a blonde girl. Natsu wasn't even in the door a minute and he had already started a fight.

"Natsu's back! We need to finish what we started!" Gray yelled jumping up in only his underwear.

"You're basically naked dumbass." I told him.

Gray ignored me and went back to yelling at Natsu. The whole guild devolved into a brawl of the usual sort; this place was always so rowdy. The blonde girl that had come in with Natsu and Happy was lying on the ground.

"Oh someone new." Mira said leaning down to talk to the girl.

"She came in with Natsu." I told the barmaid.

The girl was pretty surprised to see Mira walking around the guild.

"You're Mirajane, I've seen you in magazines." The girl said flustered "Aren't you going to stop those guys?"

"I'll get around to it." I told the girl.

Mira was slammed in the head with a bottle.

"Alright that's enough! You're hurting innocent people!" I yelled out but I was just ignored


"I can't even drink in peace." Cana groaned pulling out a card "Time to end this stupid brawl."

"Couldn't agree more." I said crackling with lightning energy.

Magic started to get prepared all across the guild. Gray had his hands in his usual position. Elfman had already transformed his arm.


All signs on magic disappeared and everyone but Natsu put their guard down halting the fight. Gramps had everyone knock it off, except Natsu who took a little extra convincing.

"He's huge!" The girl said surprised.

Master looked my way and saw the girl standing beside me "A newcomer."

Gramps shrank to his normal size and introduced himself to the girl. Next, he hopped up to the banister and started reading off a list of complaints from the Magic Council.

Good thing I'm a model wizard who doesn't make mistake.

"And you, Kanji blew out a whole street's windows with your Thunder Clap Spell."

Oh that.

"You all get the Council angry at me, but screw the council." Gramps lit the complaints on fire with a simple fire spell "If you fear the eyes of your superiors magic will never progress. So, forget the Council, do whatever you want that's the Fairy Tail way!"


The girl from early looked at me "Excuse me but how would I go about joining?"

"I'm Kanji you should talk to Mira she'll get you set up." I told the girl pointing her in the woman's direction before she left I asked her one last question "I didn't get your name."

"Lucy." She told me with a powerful smile and walked off towards Mira.

I plopped myself back at the bar next to Gramps.

"We got another new one." I told him "Name's Lucy."

"That blonde girl, yeah she's cute." He commented.

"You're being creepy, and don't give me that 'I was scouting for you' line you always do because you know I already have a girlfriend." I told him.

"She not back in town yet?" He asked.

"No but she should be soon it was a simple job." I told him.

"Excuse me." I looked down and saw Romeo; Macao's son "Is my daddy back yet?"

"You're starting to get annoying Romeo. You're the son of a mage, trust in your father and be a good boy and wait at home." Gramps said dismissing the boy.

Just peacefully wait for his father like it's nothing huh? At least Romeo had a father who cares about him.

"He said he'd be back in three days but that was over a week ago." Romeo whined "Please go look for him."

"There isn't a single mage in this guild that can't take care of themselves, so go home and have some milk and cookies or something."

"JERK!" Romeo jumped up and pushed Gramps off the bar and ran off crying.

Natsu smashed the job board and stormed out after Romeo. Some of the other members were worried that if Natsu helped Macao it only damage his pride but Gramps told them to let him go.

"What made Natsu so angry?" Lucy asked Mira.

She explained to the girl that Natsu had been abandoned by his foster parent and he wouldn't want something similar to happen to Romeo. She found it hard to believe that Natsu had been raised by a Dragon but it was true, or at least we all think it is.

"Every member of Fairy Tail is carrying a little something with them." Mira told the blonde.

The girl grabbed her things and ran out the door saying she was going to help Natsu find Macao.

"She ran off in a hurry." Gray said taking a seat near me.

"Yes she certainly is an odd girl?"

The rest of the day passed with nothing of interest.


A few days later and I still hadn't found work. I don't like to work alone and Gray kept dragging his feet. Hell, even Lucy had gone on a job with Natsu the day before.

Maybe Erza will get back today and we can go on a job. But she just got back from one so she probably won't want to work.

And I couldn't even pester Gramps because he had gone off to the Guild Master meeting. When I got to the guild this morning, I found Mira explaining the ins and outs of the magical government to Lucy.

"Lucy pick out a job." Natsu told the girl.

That's right these two formed a team the other day.

Apparently, there was already trouble in paradise because Lucy told Natsu she was breaking up their team.

"You don't have to force yourself to team up with anyone." Gray told the blonde "You'll get plenty of offers to join various teams."

"You could form the team of love with me" Loke asked the girl but he rescinded his offer when he found out she was a Celestial Spirit mage.

Loke ran out of the building and Lucy asked why he was afraid of her.

"He doesn't like Celestial mages." I explained "Don't worry it wasn't a personal thing."

Just then Loke burst back in and called for Natsu and Gray.

He delivered a line I had been waiting for all week "Erza is back!"

Bout time Red.

She walked up the center of the guild shining in her usual glory. She was carrying a large monster horn; apparently it was a gift from the village she saved.

"Is Master here?"

Mira explained that he was out at his regular meeting. Erza then went on her usually tirade and ripped into most of the guild for their mistakes.

"You should calm down, keep yelling and you'll get wrinkles." I whispered hugging her from behind.

She spun around to face me "Hey you. Are Natsu and Gray around?"

"Yeah there over there" I said pointing behind me.

The two put on their usual best friend act. Erza then shocked the whole guild by saying she needed a favor from the boys.

"I heard a troubling rumor, normally I'd consult Master but since he's not here I won't be able to do that. So will you two help me?"

She's asking those two for help and not me!

"You'll help too right?" she looked towards me.

"Of course."

"Good we leave tomorrow" Erza told the boys as she grabbed my hand and pulled me out of the guild.

"I'm tired and gonna head home, you don't mind walking with me, do you?" She asked.

"It would be my honor" I said holding her hand and laughing.

We talked along the way and I filled her in on the recent happenings while she talked about her recent job.

"A new girl joined the guild, her name's Lucy and she's a Celestial Spirt mage. Natsu already took her on a job"

"She seems interesting, I better make sure I don't lose you to her." She said leaning her head on my shoulder.

"There's no woman for me but you Erza." I looked up and saw we had made it to the girl's dorm "We've arrived."

"Would you like to come in?" She asked me.

"Nah it's getting late I should get home. Besides I don't want to scare the other girls by being here this late." I told her.

"You know they don't mind, as long as you stay in my room." She said trying to get me inside.

"Maybe a different day babe." I told her.

"I'll hold you to that." She leaned up and kissed me.

We stood like that for a minute before we heard coughing and saw Levy wanting to get inside.


"Excuse me." She said stepping past

"I should get going, I'll see you tomorrow." I said giving her one last kiss.

"See you tomorrow." She said walking inside.


Thank you for reading. Feedback is appreciated. Feel free to message me any questions or concerns.

If you made it down to here you probably realized that this story assumes an established relationship between the OC and Erza. There will be a flashback at some point to explain how they got together.
