He wondered for how long she cried already? Sting had his feet over the edge as he sat next to her. ” You know… ” he paused, letting out a deep sigh before he started talking again, altough he did not look at her but at the water infront of them, seeing the reflection of theirselves in the water. ” You were really a fool to bet your life during that match ” In the corner of his eyes he looked at her, ” You shouldn’t have done that ” He shakes his head and turns his attention back towards the water again.
” I know you’re confident in your own skills and you have all right to be ” pausing yet again, ” But did you ever think of the concequences? ” He asks as he raises a brow. ” Think about the things that actually could have happend ” then he stays silent. ” I know you just wanted to do impress everyone, but just remember this is your very first competition you enter with this team ” He glances towards his left towards the direction she’s sitting. ” There’s no need to overdo things, or else you will get situations like these ” Letting out another sigh.
” Ya know… ” Sting had no idea why he was going to tell this but maybe it would help? ” This is my 7th time I enter these games, do you think I won my first match when I first entered? ” He asks his hand on his right side slightly clenching into a fist. ” I don’t think so, but I learned from my mistakes and look where am I now. So you should do so too ”
” But now we have to deal with a certain other problem… ”
Which was quite difficult and he actually no idea how to deal with this situation. ” So what are you planning to do now? ” Whatever her answer would be, ” But if they’re thinking we will hand you over that easily they’re mistaken. ”
Though the other was still crying a little, Sting shook his head and ran a hand through his blonde spiky hair, ” For how long are you going to cry? ” He asked her as he looked towards her direction. ” At this rate, this river will overflow if you’ll continue crying like that ” He said in a serious tone, but his face expression was saying something else, it was more of a jokingly way.
” So, enough crying for now. Heads up and keep going we still have 5 days left, we’re not going to lose. After all we’re the strongest in Fiore for 7 years~ Those other guilds are weak it was already proven during the hide and seek fight. We have nothing to fear, we’ll win for sure. Unless ” He says as he deadpanned, ” A zombie apocalypse will happen which will cause the games to be canceled. This of course all according to the theory that Fairy Tail mage came up with after watching a certain horror movie…hehe, such creativity ” He laughed a little.
Sting stood up and glanced towards the other who was still sitting. He held out his hand for her.
” Come on, let’s go back to the lodgings ”
Yukino stayed silent, the whole time she was listening to Sting. Holding her breath here and there where he called her a fool beginning to receive a lecture from the dragon slayer. The only thing she did was grip her cape, still depressed from her battle.
She made that wager because everyone else who battled did, and it was her first time here at the Grand Magic Games. How would she know? Although, maybe she was a bit too confident and didn’t really think of any consequences.
As she listened to Sting’s first day attending the Grand Magic Games her head shot up, glancing at the dragon slayer sitting beside her. Blinking once or twice, she realized that she wasn’t the only one who messed up.
Now hearing of what Yukino, herself was going to do now because of that wager with Kagura, her hopes sank to the bottom of the river. Looking away, resting her head on her knees once again beginning to sob more. But, Sting’s last sentence made tears run down her face as she glanced at his face once more.
Now she was beginning to get teased, holding her breath she breathed out unevenly and wiped the fresh tears away. Now happy to hear him say kinder words than before.
She didn’t really find the zombie apocalypse joke humorous, but it was enough for her to say, “My spirits can take them.” quickly shutting her mouth trying not to be too confident again.
Yukino noticed Sting stand up, she was still sitting on the ground. Pondering if she’d go back to the lodge or not, but his hand was held out to her. Though she’s never showed this side of her before, she flashed Sting a tiny smile before placing her hand on his and standing up.
They walked back to the lodge together, though the only thing that didn’t change of their surroundings was that their hands never broke away.
