"There you go, now you've got it." Grey said as you completed making the ice shield. You had just become a member of Fairy Tail, and you were still an amateur ice magic user. Grey had agreed to he you out, considering he was one of the best around.
"Thanks." You said, slightly out of breath.
"How about you try the hammer again?" He suggested, and you nodded. You got into the stance, then started to make it.
"Wait! You've got the hands all wrong." Grey interrupted. He came up behind you, wrapping his arms around you to reposition your hands. You blushed, and tried to concentrate on what he was saying.
"You had them right for the shield, but you shifted them a little bit for this one. I would- wait. Why are you blushing?" He said as he finally noticed your dilemma.
"Um, you, stripped again." You said quietly, your (e/c) eyes fixed on the ground. He blushed a bright red then quickly ran behind a rock to change. He came out after a minute, now dressed.
"Sorry about that." He said, still blushing.
"It's ok. I know that you usually do it." You had only been at Fairy Tail for about a three weeks now, and you already knew that this was a normal thing for him. But it still made you blush whenever he did it around you, especially since you had a crush on him.
"Ok, where were we..." He said, and you continued with the lesson.
"Ahhhhh......." you said as you sunk into the warm water. You had finished your lesson with Grey on an awkward note, and after you had had a bunch of errands to run, so you didn't get to the apartment until late. You were staying with Lucy until you got your own place, and you had the house to yourself that night because she was on a job with Natsu and Happy.
"Hello? (Y/n)? Are you here?" Came Grey's voice as you heard the door close behind him. Panicking, you tried to his under the water, but decided it would be better to tell him you were there then let him walk in on you.
"Yeah, I'm here. Just stay in the living room, I'll be out in a minute." You answered him. You quickly got out and dried off, then got dressed. When you walked into the living room, Grey stood up.
"I'm really sorry about earli-" he started, but you cut him off.
"Really Grey, it's ok. There's nothing you can do about it. It's all in the past now."
"No, it's not ok. It's just- I mean- oh whatever." He said as he hugged you. You were surprised, but you wrapped your arms around him in turn.
"I really like you, (y/n)." He said.
"I like you too Grey." Then he kissed you.
Two days later..........
"Geez, I leave for three days and come back to find Fairy Tail all hyped up about you dating Grey." Said Lucy as you both sat at the bar, chatting with Mira Jane.
"Yeah, it was kinda sudden even for me." You answered.
"There you are! I've been looking for you!" Called Grey as he walked over to you. He gave you a kiss on the cheek and hugged you.
"Are you ready for our date?" You nodded, then said good bye to Lucy and Mira Jane. As you walked off, you felt as though someone was watching you.
Juvia hid in the bushes, watching as Grey and the new girl strode off, hand in hand.
"Juvia will get you back, Grey........."
