Hello everyone and welcome to my very first ever fanfiction! Please go easy on me as I never have written a serious fanfiction before. Please make sure to leave a review so you can give me feedback on it as it would be a huge help! By the way this story takes place after the Syrup Village arc but before the Baratie arc. Thank you again and enjoy "The Straw Hat's Pyro" :)
10 years ago on an island in the East Blue
"DAAAAAAAD" a small 7 year old boy with pink hair and white scarf shouts out to the sky with a desperate look on his face. "I- I don't understand... Why did you leave me?" the boy cries out with tears streaming down his face. "Is it because I haven't been getting any stronger?" the boy asked himself as he thought back to the extreme training his foster dragon father made him do at such a young age.
The small boy wipes the tears off his face and begins to scream. "IF THAT'S IT THEN I PROMISE I WILL GET STRONGER UNTIL THE DAY YOU COME BACK! I WILL BECOME STRONGER THAN ANY DRAGON IN THE WORLD! I WILL BECOME STRONG SO WE CAN BE A FAMILY AGAIN! I PROMISE THAT OR MY NAME ISN"T NATSU DRAGNEEL!" the boy now known as Natsu began to cry again.
"Dad... please come back... I want to see you again."
From that day onward Natsu began to train and train making his dragon slayer powers strong and teaching himself some new moves such as the "Fire Dragon Roar" or the "Fire Dragon Wing Attack"
10 years later...
FIRE DRAGON IRON FIST! Natsu shouted as he punched a huge tree with his flaming fist, destroying every part of it until it was nothing but ash.
Natsu grinned and laughed. "HAHAHA TAKE THAT YA STUPID TREE!" Natsu's stomach began to grumble. "Damn I'm hungry... Welp better catch some fish!" Natsu said as he grabbed his home made fishing rod. "It sucks that all I can eat is fish out here... I would eat those weird looking animals on the other side of the island but that weird treasure box man says they are his nakama so sadly that just can't be." Natsu said as he looked down into the river, staring at his own reflection.
"It's been 10 years since Igneel left..." Natsu frowned. "Maybe he will never come back... maybe I should just give-" Natsu's thoughts were interrupted as he noticed a pirate ship making its way to the island. The pirate ship didn't seem very threatening as it was just a small caravel with what looked like a lamb or sheep as its figurehead but Natsu couldn't see far ahead enough to tell. The detail Natsu did notice however was the giant Straw Hat that was on the giant skull painted on its sail.
"What a weird pirate ship" Natsu thought. "Ah well it's not a big deal as that treasure box guy always manages to scare off any pirate that comes through here with that "Island God" crap. Natsu shrugged so he didn't think much of it at the time.
However little did Natsu know...
That those pirates would change his life forever.
