Kenzie sighed as she put the card back in her pocket. The door swung open and Natsu walked in her light blue room, his normal grin on his face.
“There you are!” He said, ruffling her hair, “I was looking all over for you!”
The lightning mage sighed, “No you didn’t, I was here the whole time.”
Natsu blinked a few times at the girl before ruffling her hair again. “Whatever, Lucy said she’d go on the job with us!” Kenzie kept the smirk to herself after what her brother said.
“Really? Cool! Maybe we can keep most the money this time!”
“Yeah! And have a party for doing so!”
“What’s with you and parties? You want to have one every weekend!”
“What? We’re busy people; we never get to chill really.” Again, the little dragon slayer sighed. She waved him off and sat down on her fluffy bed.
“Just go pack… And be sure to bring a paper bag.”
“Alright, see ya later little sis!” The pink haired man-child smiled before running out the door and closing it. Once she heard a second door close (meaning that Natsu was in his own room), Kenzie pulled the card out of her pocket and dialed the number that was Wendy’s and Romeo’s.
“Hey guys! It’s Kenzie!”
“Oh, hey Kenzie! Did Lucy say yes?”
“Yup my dragon slayer friend… and Romeo, she said yes. The plan is working out so far! By the end of the day, they should be dating!”
“Yay! NaLu will start!” Kenzie heard the voice of Happy cheering in the background.
“Mira told me it. It’s their couple name!”
“Oh yeah, that reminds me… I need to try that new soda she got, I heard it’s pretty good!”
“Really Kenzie, that’s what you’re thinking about.”
“Hey, be nice Romeo! This is way I don’t work with guys, they always give me they’re to-sense!“
“Whatever… We’re almost there anyways, see ya soon!”
Kenzie made a coughing noise with her throat.
Romeo sighed, “Captain Kenzie…”
“There you go! Good job! And I’ll report to you guys when we get near ourselves! Over ‘n out!”
“Aye sir! See ya later Captain Kenzie!”
Kenzie smiled as the call ended.
“Perfect, the plan is working. I just hope luck wins this battle… I’ve always wanted to say that… even though no one is here…” The light brown haired girl sighed as she started to pack for the ‘mission’ they would be leaving for in a few hours.
(A few hours later…)
“LUCY! OVER HERE!” Natsu waved his arms and started jumping up and down, earning the two dragon slayers some weird stares.
“I knew I shouldn’t have given him any coffee…” Kenzie grumbled as the blonde mage slowly started to make her way over to the two.
“Hey Luce, ready to go?!”
"Yup! And this time, I brought some clothes in case SOMEONE *looks at Kenzie* decides to push me into a river again.” Lucy gave the girl a low stare as Kenzie just smiled and waved back.
“It wasn’t like I met to or anything…” Lucy raised an eyebrow, her arms crossed.
“Really, I think I remember hearing you say “Watch this guys!” before the next thing I know, I’m all wet! And we had to use Natsu as a human hair dryer… AGAIN!”
“Hehe… Was that really me?” The lightning mage sheepishly rubbed the back of her neck and laughed nervously.
“Oh, would you look at the time… better get on the train…” Kenzie ran over to train, quickly showed her ticket to the train… guy, and ran to a set of seats.
“I think you scared her.” Natsu sweat dropped as the two walked over to the train themselves. Lucy just smirked.
(2 hours later…)
“Ugh… I’m NEVER going on a train again…” Natsu wobbled his way off the train, soon followed by another wobbling dragon slayer and his other teammate.
“Ugh… agreed…” The youngest of the group groaned, wobbling just as much as Natsu. Lucy smiled as the three if group stopped by some benches and sat down.
“Anytime now…” Kenzie thought to herself as she watched for the two wizards and three cats.
“KENZIE!” Right on cue, they came bolting over to the group, all torn up.
“Huh… Hey guys.”
“Romeo? Wendy? What are you guys doing here?” Lucy asked, confused as Natsu is most the time.
“We need Kenzie’s help! We took this request to capture this villain, but when we tried to, he beat us pretty bad.” Romeo explained, looking ashamed. Wendy and the cats did the same as they looked at their feet.
“Hey, cheer up guys!” The fire mage smiled his goofy grin on as usual. “You guys tried your best, it’s alright! You’ll get him next time!”
“Yup! Natsu’s right. You guys can do it!” Lucy piped in, leaning over the pink haired wizard’s shoulder with her own smile. The two younger wizards stared at each other before a smile appeared on their once sad faces.
“Thanks guys, we really needed that.” Romeo said, lighting his one fist on fire with purple flames. “We’ve got this!” He threw his fist in the air, soon followed by Wendy, Happy, Leaf, and even Carla. “So Kenzie, you in?”
Within Kenzie, she was smirking, but on the outside, she had a surprised look on her face. “I-I don’t know. I mean, I guess if it’s ok with Natsu and Lucy.” She looked at the two named mages, semi-giving them puppy dog eyes.
Lucy had a look of shock as Natsu butted in with an “Of course you can! Good luck!” and before the blonde wizard knew it, she was alone with Natsu on a mission, just as the other girls had said.
“Nice one guys! How’d you get the beat up look down so fast?” Kenzie walked with her new group on a path in the nearby forest.
“Well…” Romeo sheepishly said, “We might have ran into trouble on the way here…” The rest of the group nervously laughed. Kenzie crossed her arms over her chest.
“What kind of trouble?” She raised an eyebrow, arms still crossed.
“Let’s just say… Don’t get Happy mad. That’s all…” Leaf piped in, hiding behind Kenzie once she finished. With a closer look at Happy, Kenzie noticed he was the only one out of the group that didn’t look beat up…
Ring, ring, ring! Ring, ring, ring! The card buzzed in Kenzie’s pocket as she took it out.
“What’s up?” She asked.
“Yo, it’s Gray. We’re having some trouble over here!”
“Trouble? What now?!”
“Well… look around you, notice anything different about the sky at all?!”
The group turned their heads, finally seeing it was night time after all.
“Er… What’s the trouble then?”
“Well... Those idiots are fighting over where to stay! Looks pretty bad to me!”
“Crap…” The brown haired girl mumbled, “Huh, where are they?”
“Just a little past the train station.”
“Wow, they didn’t move very far, did they…” Carla sweat dropped.
“So what’s the plan from here?” The ice wizard asked.
Kenzie thought for a few seconds before snapping her fingers, a smirk on her face.
“I’ve got it! Sorry Gray, I’m gonna need to hang up on you for now. Gotta call Mira. I’ll report back to you afterwards.”
The lightning mage cleared her throat once more before a loud sigh was heard on the other end of the card.
“There you go Gray, good boy!”
“I’m older than you…” He sighed, “Whatever, good luck.” And he hung up. Kenzie frowned as she started to dial the card once more.
“Why are you calling Mira?” The sky dragon slayer asked in her cute way.
“Simple my dear Wendy,” Romeo sweat dropped as the girl continued, “We have Mira make some reservations at the best hotel in Clover! And lucky us, I hear there’s a really good one!”
“Hello?” Came from the card once more.
“Oi, Mira, we need ya! I need you to make reservations at the best hotel in Clover quickly! I need four rooms with two beds each except from one!” Kenzie’s smirk grew bigger, “We’ll let the love birds have a little fun of their own…”
