Day 1- Gifts
Gifts. Lucy didn't like gifts. When she was little she had received more than she could remember each birthday, the pile of brightly wrapped presents nearly touching the ceiling as she craned her neck and tried to count them all. She got everything she'd ever wanted, all that is, except for a gift from the heart.
She got books and games and clothes, trinkets and jewelry and candy, but never had she once ever received a gift that she could look at and instantly tell who it was from. She'd never gotten a gift that someone had really taken time in picking out, thinking of her likes and her needs and giving her that one heartfelt present that she'd cherish forever.
She'd never gotten one like that and so unconsciously, she'd begun to hate gifts. When she'd left her family's mansion and joined Fairy Tail, every year when her birthday came around, she made sure to tell everyone not to get her something.
Some thought she was just playing hard-to-get, secretly wanting big a

Because Natsu's gone too far, Lucy's embarrassed, and Happy's always in the wrong place at the wrong time. No, this wasn't what Lucy'd thought her first kiss with Natsu would be like.
That was it. That was the last straw as far as Lucy was concerned. He had to know. There was no other way he would've done that if he hadn't known. That stupid fire breather.
Lucy's feet slammed down on the cobblestone as she marched back to her apartment, not even paying attention to the man in the boat who called out to her to be careful, and that if she stomped that hard she'd break her foot. She didn't care. That pyro was finally going to get a piece of her mind whether he wanted it or not. She was tired of the embarrassment.
She shook her head in frustration. Natsu was so oblivious, so stupid, so dense, and yet there was no doubt in her mind that he knew. He knew that she was filled to the brim with unexpressed emotion for him. She had fallen for Natsu, the dense one, and ye

Because when Natsu finally tells Lucy how he feels, it's already too late.
Of all the times Natsu'd seen Lucy hurt at the hands of another mage, none of them had felt like this. He watched, his body frozen and his eyes wide as she fell, her breath catching and her eyes blank as she tumbled backward, collapsing in a heap on the ground. He couldn't help her, his body unable to move, and his heart pounding.
It had been a harmless job they had taken, just for fun. Lucy needed rent money, Natsu was bored, and so they once again teamed up to complete a job together. It was everyday stuff, and yet it had gone so wrong. He wasn't sure if it was because he'd been goofing off, or if they truly had been blindsided, but either way he considered it his fault.
It was an easy job, so he wasn't taking it as seriously as most. He was more focused on playing around, joking with Happy, and making Lucy laugh, than actually concentrating on the job. They'd been walking across a lar

Chapter 1: The Key
"Miss Lucy?" A few knocks hesitantly sounded on the oaken door to Lucy's room. She ignored them, instead grumbling incoherently to herself in annoyance and pulling the covers over her head. It was too early to face all she had to do during the day. The knocks rapped on the door again, followed by a louder, "Miss Lucy?"
Lucy sunk further in her bed, her mind going over and over again all she had to do. Today was July seventh, and it had to be the busiest day of the year. She had four, count them four events to attend. She couldn't even remember what they were for. Of course she was obligated to attend them, as they were for her family and she was the one everyone seemed to want to see. The Heartfilia heir, yes, they all wanted to see her.
The Heartfilia Empire stretched across nearly the entire region, and Jude and Lucy were the only figureheads for it. Lucy wasn't even quite sure what she was considered. She was the heir, but she sorely doubted her f
