Show me what it’s like

To be the last one standing

And teach me wrong from right

And I’ll show you what I can be

And say it for me, say it to me

And I’ll leave this life behind me

Say it if it’s worth saving me

Hurry, I’m fallin’

And say it for me, say it to me

And I’ll leave this life behind me

Say it if it’s worth saving me

Natsu had noticed Lucy walking out of the room, but he didn’t say anything, not even glancing at her when he felt her eyes lock onto him sadly. He stood there, facing down his father, even after his brother had walked out as well. The two stood there, a battle of wills rather than words, his mother and sister to the side, no doubt shaking their heads at the boys’ foolishness. His father shook his head, and opened his mouth, but before he could say anything a wave of fear washed over Natsu, making him go pale. His eyes widened and he turned and rushed from the room, his father, sister, and mother all right on his heels.

Lucy stood out in the air, not noticing when the demon king stepped out beside her. “Lucy, right?” He said, and the girl turned, a hand to her chest in shock.

“King Zeref!” She bowed, “you startled me.” She did not rise until he told her she could, respecting the terrifying man in front of her. She wondered for a moment why he was there, but thought maybe this was Natsu’s decision — sending someone else to tell her to leave since he did not wish to see her. But she was wrong, and shocked when the older brother spoke.

“You’ve seen what you have done to my brother correct?” She gulped. “His wings have been torn from his back because of you.” Her body froze as he reached for her, a hand pressed over her head. “His horns sawed from his head. All of this because of you.” Lucy couldn’t even breathe, she had tears running down her face, feeling the sadness sweep through her. “Have you seen?” She didn’t answer. “Answer me!”

“Yes.” She said the word weakly. “Yes, I’ve seen it all.” A sob came from her throat as she fell to her knees. “His wings. My king’s beautiful wings. Broken then removed. Oh Mavis, why?” Tears were flowing from her eyes, unable to be stopped as she clenched her hands into fists.

“At least you feel some regret, but it’s useless now, too late. You’ve already caused too much damage.” Lucy didn’t notice that Zeref’s eyes had a glint to them. She was too focused on her own inner thoughts. Someone did though, and Natsu yelled out, shocking her into looking up.

“Don’t you fucking touch her Zeref!” Lucy yanked away from him, her eyes widening at the death magic she could now sense from the black haired king above her. Her breathing got harder and a wave of unadulterated terror washed over her. If Natsu hadn’t of come running, Lucy probably wouldn’t have even noticed until it was too late.

Too late.

She never realized her mistakes until it was too late. Zeref was right, she couldn’t do anything right. Said man looked at her with a grin, as though he could read her thoughts, and who knows, maybe he could. “My sister-in-law and I were just having a lovely heart to heart, isn’t that right Lucy?” He reached out a hand to help her up and she reached to take it, but Natsu was in front of her, his body pale once again, terror awash his entire body. He could tell the warning wasn’t coming from Lucy, so how did he know she was in danger?

His eyes traveled down her body, to where one hand rested upon her still flat stomach. The baby, that was right. If the baby was in danger, it made sense that he would be able to sense it’s fear. But how was it already so aware of what was going on? Natsu wrapped his arms around the blonde, helping her to stand.

Keeping his arms around her, he turned to his father. “Where is Porlyusica?”

Igneel frowned but answered his son. “She’s where she always is, what is the meaning of this son?”

“I need her to check something for me.”

“Check what?” Igneel asked.

“Come along and find out.” Natsu replied cryptically.

Natsu stood next to Lucy in the infirmary room. “What do you mean?” The pink haired woman asked her nephew.

“Just do it old hag.” She whacked him upside the head.

“Try being more polite, brat!” Lucy smiled lightly as she turned to the woman.

“I apologize. I think Natsu is just worried about the baby since I was in a stressful situation. He probably just wishes for you to check it out.” There was a thud heard from the doorway and Lucy turned to see Igneel passed out on the floor. Grandeeney and Wendy were hovering over him, the elder woman looking terribly excited while the younger hovering over her father worriedly.

“Baby? Why didn’t you just say so ya pink haired idiot?”

“Hey! You have pink hair too!” Lucy chuckled and both of them looked at her.

“Oh, yes, let me check the baby.” Lucy was ushered to one of the beds and quickly examined. Porlyusica took some blood from both Natsu and Lucy to determine… something. “Good news is the baby is healthy and progressing as a dragon and demon hybrid baby should, which is to say, for only being about three weeks in she’s progressing as though about three months pregnant. She should start showing in a few days now. On the other hand, good for Natsu, sad for you my dear, the baby will have fire powers. Good luck. Get out. Check up with me once every week. Now out!”

Lucy was shocked, being shoved from the room after being told she was nearly four times as far along as she should have been. She looked over at Natsu who was grinning like an idiot. By this time, Igneel had awakened and clapped his son on the back, congratulating him. Zeref, on the other hand was no where to be found, and Lucy was still a bit afraid, which was something else the blonde needed to address with her husband.

“How did you know Natsu?” He knew exactly what she was talking about.

“If I’m correct, it’s some type of connection a dragon child has with their parents, dragon parents at least. She was terrified, making me terrified in turn. She could sense danger before anyone else, it’s just a thing I guess.”

Igneel and Grandeeney looked at each other before the latter spoke. “What Natsu means to say is that your child, whom he can sense is a girl, is connected to Natsu through her dragon DNA. If you had the same DNA, with dragon blood in you, then you would feel the same thing. Normally, however, the child reacts by calling to the stronger parent, typically the father at the first sign of danger. Although more emotionally attached to the mother, as the child is in the womb it will be more attached to the father.” Lucy nodded, still confused, but certainly understanding just a bit more.

By the time Lucy was actually three months pregnant, she was already in labor. True to his word, Natsu did not argue when she named their first child Nashi, pink haired and brown eyed, the girl was just as wild as her father and just as beautiful as her mother. Lucy was glad that the fire eating girl was in her father’s hands the moment she was out of her womb, for the girl was extremely hyper. The blonde loved her little family, and never once since the girl was born, had she thought she had ever done anything wrong again.


Hey lovelies!

Day 7, the final chapter of this fic! But don’t worry! I still have something planned and written up for the next prompt! Okay, so, that was a little bit of a weird ending, but it is what it is I guess. What did you guys think about all of this?
