Wednesday June 21rst
I had just woken up and was heading over to the forest to join Erza and the others for combat practice when suddenly I felt myself flat on the floor.
"Ugh...... What happened?" I stated.
"Sorry Luc." Courtney said helping me up.
There was white worksheets spread all over the ground, some of which were already halfway completed. Courtney's black Samsung laptop was open and was opened to a Google search page. When she had finished helping to pull me up, she pulled out her phone.
"Hey guys!" Luna waved right before she saw at huge mess on the floor. "What happened here?"
"I was doing some assignments for my classes." Courtney stated.
"Wait how long have you been working for?" Luna asked.
"For about......" Courtney checked her phone. "Four hours now."
"WHAT!" Luna and I shouted at the same time.
"How come?" I asked.
"And why are you doing school work in the middle of the summer?" Luna asked. "Its only June."
"I signed up for summer classes." Courtney began to pick up some of the papers.
"Why you sign up for classes when you know were going to be on a TV for the major of summer?" Luna asked.
"Thing is I signed up for these classes before I found out I was going to be a callback on this show." Courtney replied.
"So why didn't you just cancel when got the news?" I asked.
"By the time I got it it was too late for me to cancel." She replied back. "They already had the list finalized."
"But Chris sent the news letters May 1rst." Luna stated. "Surely that's was enough time to cancel. Unless you were in some high class university like Harvard or something. Wait you actually got into Harvard University? The Harvard University!?!" Courtney nodded.
"One of my dad's clients teach in the religion unit and when I went in to submit my application, she checked it out and put in a good work for me." Courtney stated.
"Its amazing where good connections in right places could take you." I stated.
"Yeah." Courtney replied. "The math teacher and the religion teacher I know well and when they told me I could take the virtual classes I thought I would be straight but now I have so much work to due, have of it is over due and there's this one assignment I just can't get and i don't know what to do."
"Courtney." I stated. "Slow down. You're spiraling."
"I know." She said right before she busted into to tears.
"Hum......" Luna stated. "This doesn't sound like the Courtney I knew back in season 1. Do you need a little help? Its okay to ask for help you know."
"Yeah, we could help." I offered.
"How exactly could you help me?" Courtney asked. "Its not like you could to my assignments for me."
"Well we could start by helping you figure out that trick assignment." Luna stated.
"Well okay." She said giving her the paper. Luna took a hard look at it and smiled.
"Well its look to me like your teacher likes you teaching skills, Courtney." Luna stated367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ32ZVBFYbZm
handing Courtney the paper.
"Why would you say that?" She asked.
"Because if I read this correctly, your teacher wants you to hold a study session." Luna replied.
"I guess that would make sense." Courtney stated. "I do love teaching people and public speaking is a requirement for my major."
"What's your major?" I asked her.
"Economics and Art history." Courtney replied. "I'm currently doing my second year in the J.D program."
"J.D?" Luna said confused.
"Juris Doctor." Luna looked even more confused.
"It basically means she's just beginning her lawing major." I explained. Both of them then stared at me.
"What my mother taught me a few things." I stated. "Just cause I ran away doesn't mean I can't know how college works."
"O....k." Courtney stated. "So all I have to do is teach a few people something religious and I get a good grade. Great! Lets do it!" Then she headed for the door.
"Hold up." Luna said stopping Courtney dead in her tracks.
"What do you mean 'hold up'?" Courtney then went closer to Luna.
"There's some writing at the bottom of it." Luna stated.
"It looks like scriptures." Courtney stated. "Well I need to call my teacher." Then she pulled out phone and began dialing up her teacher.
"Why are you so alarmed when you see that?" Luna asked. "I thought you said this was for your Religion class."
"It is." Courtney stated. "The problem is she wants me to teach based on the scriptures."
"So, I thought she was going to give me a bible story to teach not scriptures." Courtney replied.
"What's the difference?" Luna asked.
"The Bible story is based off the biblical scriptures. Can't you still use them?"
"I wish but with the time it will take just to look through them alone is too much time, besides." Courtney stated. "Chef will never go for it. And we'll need his permission to hold the meeting."
"How do you know?" I asked. "We've haven't asked him yet."
"Do we have to?" Courtney asked. "Cause I'm really short on time and..." Then Luna grabbed her by the arm and dragged her outside and cracked the door.
"Go to the mess hall." Luna told me poking her head through the cracked door slot. "We'll meet you there."
A few minutes later.....
The three of us were standing in front of the counter where, Chef was using some brown slop. (I tell you the food quality is seriously low around here.)
367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTrRjCw6pXj
"Hey Chef!" Luna shouted Chef ignored her.
"Hey Chef?" Luna shouted again. He still didn't responded. "Oh Chef."
"Hey Chef you there?" I asked waving my hand in front of his face. Still nothing. "CHEF!" Then he banged the metal spoon on the wooden counter causing it to vibrate.
"Can't you see I'm busy!?!" Chef shouted at us.
"Yeah guys he's clearly not available right now." Courtney stated. "Why don't we come back later?" Then she began to head for the door but Luna stopped her.
"Chef we want to hold a bible study." Luna stated. "You remember what that is right?" Chef raised an eyebrow.
"Sorry, just wanted to be sure so is that a yes?" Luna replied.
"No its a I don't have time to do no fancy-"
"What if Courtney did it?" Luna asked causing Chef to raise his eyebrow again.
"It's for her assignment." I clarified.
"And what type of fancy pants University does she needs this assignment for?"
"Harvard." The three of said in unison.
"Well can't say I'm surprised." Chef stated. "Well if Courtney needs to do her assignment then go right ahead."
Outside the messhall
"Well we got permission." Luna squealed.
"Okay fine!" Courtney shouted. "I'll do it. But only for the grade. That and I know you won't stop bugging till I say yes."
"Yes!" Luna shouted.
"But I'm not going to spend any time looking for a location." Courtney announced.
"Actually I've already got that covered for you Courtney." Luna told her.
"Really then why are we back in the mess hall?" Courtney asked sarcastically.
"We're here to see someone." Luna announced right before Levy walked in.
"Hey Levy." She said grabbing Levy by the shoulder. "We need you're help with something." Then she paused.
"Is that a strand of my hair?" Luna asked shocked.
"What hair?" Levy replied showing Luna her hands. "What you need my help with anyway?"
"Oh, right." Luna jumped. "See Courtney's holding a event later this afternoon and we need help finding a location for it."
"Really?" Levy asked. "Have you checked the woods?"
"Here's the thing." Luna replied. "Courtney doesn't want to go into the woods cause it'll take too much time." Levy raised an eyebrow.
"So let me guess? You want me to hack into the cameras surrounding the woods?" Luna nodded.
"Thanks but no thanks." Levy replied." If she's to lazy to even go into to the woods herself then why she would even need to have this event?"
"You know maybe she's right." Courtney stated. "Come on ill find some other way to get that grade let's go." Then she headed for the door but Luna stopped her.(Again!) Levy raised an eyebrow.
"What's this event for anyway?" Levy asked.
"Courtney's holding a practice bible study for her religious studies class." I told her. Levy looked surprised.
"You know I guess I could help you." Levy told us. "But I want you to do something for me."
"Let me guess, you want cash?" Luna began to open her wallet.
"Nope." Levy stated. "I want to come and evaluate her." I smiled.
"Why do you want to help?" I asked.
"I'm currently studying different types of religions and how they each connect to history and right now I'm currently on the history of the bible." Levy stated. "It would be nice to a live study in action and take notes." Then she began to hack into the cameras.
"Well it looks like I've found a spot." Levy said after a few minutes.
"Really?" Luna asked. "Where?"
"She sure did that fast." Courtney whispered into my ear.
"She's a prodigy." I whispered back to her.
"Oh...." Courtney said. "Ok." Levy raised an eyebrow.
"So what spot did you find, Levy?" I asked.
"Well it's a spot near the center of the woods." Levy replied. "It's not perfect but it should service. It has great lighting, good acoustics and enough for everyone to sit and be able to attend the meeting and understand what would be said." Then she allowed us to see the spot she picked out.
Meanwhile in the messhall....
Chef's stirring the brown slop he's been stirring for over an hour when his phone rings. He looks at the receiver and groans before he answers it.
"I thought you were at some fancy game show or something like that." Chef complains.
"Okay first off, it's award show but, that's not what call you to talk about." Chris says from the other line.
"Yes the children are alive." Chef mumbled.
"I'm getting tired of your antics man can you just tell me why you even called in the first place." Chef exclaimed.
"I'm calling cause some smart Alex just hacked into the forest cameras!" Chris shouted irritated.
"Its probably just Levy." Chef replied. "The girls just came in a few minutes ago asking to hold a practice bible study. Apparently, it's for Courtney's religion sector."
"Dude don't lie to me." Chris stated. "Next thing you be telling me, she got into Harvard."
"Apparently, she did." Chef replied. "I could tell that you're surprised."
"Not really I'm mean the girl is smart." Chris replied. "I'll give her that. Anyway, make sure tell Levy to stay away from my cameras. I don't want to pay another $500 dollars to replace them."
"That was your fault you had to for those dude." Chef replied still laughing. "Dumping that toxic waste on the island. So uncalled for."
"I know." Chris stated. "But it made for a great season."
"Yeah it sure did." Chef agreed. "Are you sad that this is your last season?"
"No way!" Chris announced. "Hosting this show was the best decision I've made since leaving homeland."
"Sure is buddy." Chef replied.
"Yeah and to think after 6 seasons, I finally found her had I found her BFF in the first season." Chris exclaimed fill with joy. Chef then heard noise coming from Chris' end of the receiver.
"Do you have to go?"
"Yeah man but it was nice ranting on you." Chris replied making Chef chuckle. "Catch you around Chef?"
"Okay we'll talk later. But stop talking like a teenager. Its weird."
"What I can't talk like a youth anymore?" Chris asked.
"You're over 30 years old." Chef replied.
"Hey!" Chris shouted then he hung up. Chef just rolled his eyes then went back to stirring the brown slop that was on the stove.
After we've finished checking out the spot and getting the exact location, we decided to head back to our cabin.
"So?" Luna said raising her eyebrow. "Still not convince?"
"Even if I wasn't." Courtney sighed. "We're too deep in this. But, we'll have to do it at 6:00. It's the only hour I'm free. Besides 10:00 when I go to bed."
"That's fair." Luna stated causing Courtney to give off a little smirk.
"So how are you going to get people to come?" Courtney asked. "Remember, there needs to be at least ten people in attendance or it doesn't count."
"Well we've already know that Levy's coming." I stated.
"And of course, Lucy and I will be there." Luna added.
"And inviting everyone or hanging up posters will take up way too much time from the school work." Courtney added. "In fact this conversation took up five minutes out of the time of was supposed to be doing my economics assignments. Now if you'll excuse me." Then she when inside the cabin and started her schoolwork.
"So I guess we'll handle promotion ourselves then?" Luna asked. I shrugged.
"Meet up here once we finish?"
"Of course." Luna stated. "Unless it around 6:00 by the time we're done. Then we meet up at the spot."
"The spot?" I asked.
"It's just what I called the spot that Levy picked out for us to use." Luna explained.
"Okay cool, yeah totally." I stated. Then we set off and started to invite everyone.
I wanted to Erza first because we had a combat session together and... Oh on! I forgot about our combat session. That was over 3 hours ago. Oh man Erza's going to kill me. I then began to hear arguing coming from the winners cabin. I walked over to see if everything was alright. The door was swung wide open revealing all beds in the . I look around only to see Juvia listening to music on her phone. She looked up and then tapped her phone screen.
"What are you Lucy?" She asked.
"I was wondering where are that arguing was coming from." I told her. She looked at me like I wasn't being serious. "Is it Nastu and Grey again?" She nodded.
"Yep and everyone's in the backyard trying to get them to calm down." Juvia stated. "Well everyone except Erza. She went out into the woods earlier and hasn't came back yet."
"Oh cool." I replied handing the piece I paper I hand with all the info I'd written down.
"What's this for?" She asked.
"It's for a bible study that Courtney's conducting." I replied. "I was hoping that you would come."
"A bible study?" Juvia asked concerned. "Cool, I'll be there."
"Ow I know you're probably wondering what that is..." I started before I heard her say that she'll come. "What did you just say you'll be there?"
"Yes." I stared at Juvia confused. "My uncle used to read it to me before every class. Of course he only read to the scriptures concerning water based miracles. It would be nice to hear something from it that doesn't concern water. She won't be talking about water right?"
"No she won't." I chuckled.
"Good then I'll see you there." Juvia stated. "Now if you'll excuse me." Then she put her headphones back in and left. I smiled. Suddenly I saw small shard of ice fly past me. Right I forgot about that. I better go before those too get us in trouble. Then I headed for the backyard. I went into the backyard and noticed that most of the other team had gathered around the two boys. Great. I walked up to Duncan and tapped him on the shoulder.
"What happened here?" I asked him.
"Apparently, one of them bumped into the other in the mess and they're arguing saying that the other did it on purpose." He explained making me giggle a bit.
"Should have known." I sighed.
"Do they do this all the time?" I nodded.
"Could hardly go a day without those two arguing about something at the work place." Duncan stared at me surprised.
"Better break this up before they break something." Then I went and separated them.
"Guys, not cool how do you think Erza would react to this?" I asked.
"Why would she care?" Natsu asked me. "And frankly, why do you care?" I glared at him.
"You two did the thing again."
"We did?" Both of them asked. I stared hard at them. "You two always do this imagine what would happen if your little arguments got us into trouble?"
"What kind of trouble cause we kinda get into trouble almost everyday?" Nastu asked trying to look innocence.
"YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN." I say sternly. The two of them gulped. "But I will forgive you it you attend to Courtney's bible study tonight."
"I don't know about that Luc." Nastu said worried. "That's seems like the exact predicament where something very bad could happen."
"Since when you became the logical one?" Grey asked him.
"Guys." I glared themed both.
" Okay we'll come." Nastu said annoyed.
"Maybe I'll come too." Duncan stated making everyone stare at him. "What I used to love going to them all the time when I was little."
"What did you stop?" Gwen asked. Duncan shrugged.
"Got locked up for the first time, no big deal." He explained. "Would be nice to see how Courtney would do hold one. See if anything has changed over the years."
"I'll come." Heather said to my surprise. "To see how bad it goes of course." I frowned.
As long as she comes it's a win. I told myself.
Then everyone else agreed to come to. Afterwards, I started to head out to 'the spot'.
A few hours later..........367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡF0XXPRWfTv
I had finally meet up with Luna and Courtney by 'the spot.' Luna and Levy were helping Courtney set up for the meeting.
"Hey guys." I waved.
"Hey, Luc." She replied. "What took you so long?"
"I ran into an.... Issue." I replied. "How was the prompting over on your end? I manage to convince the entire Renegade to come. You?"
"Same with our team." Luna replied. "Say Luc, Courtney wanted to ask you something."
"Hey guys I'm going to head back to the cabins to try and find everyone." Levy said walking off.
"K." I told her. "Say Courtney what did you want to ask me."
"Right!" Courtney exclaimed. "Lucy, I was wondering if you could maybe read for me?"
"Why?" I asked.
"Well I want this to be as authentic possible, since this is for a grade." Courtney stated.
"Why didn't you ask Luna?" I asked.
"Cause I want you to do it."
"Why me? I don't even know what scripture to read."
"Don't worry you won't have to." Courtney stated. "All you have to do is just read the scripture I tell you to read during the meeting. Please Luc. I don't want to fail." Then she gave me her puppy dog eyes.
"Okay! Okay!" I turned away. "I'll do it. Just please, put away the eyes."
"Thanks Luc!" She exclaimed. Then she dived straight back into her preparation.
Since when did everybody start calling me Luc? I thought.
"The session starts in five minutes." Courtney checked her phone again. "Where is everyone?"
"I'm sure they'll be here soon." I told her. Suddenly I heard voices.
"Finally!" Courtney shouted as they arrived and began to sit down. "What took you guys so long?"
"We would have been here sooner if someone had given us the directions." Heather complained. "Where exactly are we suppose to sit?"
"On the logs where else are we supposed to sit out here?" Gwen told her sarcastically. Heather glared and her and tried to sit down but her log rolled away causing her to land on the floor. Gwen then laughed.
"Guys be nice." Luna stated. "Let me help you up Heather." Then she went over to Heather and tried to help her up but she refused.
"I don't need your help freak." Heather said standing herself up only to fall down again.
"Suit yourself." Luna said walking away.
"Um.... Guys it's 6:05." Lisanna stated holding up her watch.
"Yeah can we start this bible study already?" Juvia asked. "I want to learn something before the hour's up."
"GUYS!" Everyone became silence. "I'm about to start the session so please stop talking so you could get everything. If you have any questions during the lesson, RAISE YOUR HAND. Now Lucy, could you kindly start reading Genesis chapter 1 for us?" I quickly took out my phone and opened the app. (Yes I have a bible app. My mother downloaded it for me a few years before I left and I had it ever since. I never bothered to delete it.) Okay Genesis chapter 1.... Here it is!367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡykT6jOrAta
"Okay Genesis chapter 1 verse 1." I began. "Verse 1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.
14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. Keep reading Courtney?"
"Thanks Lucy but you could stop there for now." Courtney told me. Then she began to explain the chapter. "Now chapter 1 is the very beginning of everything that exists in the entire universe. This chapter explains how everything was birthed and created." Then Wendy raised her hand. "Yes Wendy?"
"What was everything made out of?" Wendy asked.
"Well, actually that's a very good question." Courtney told her. "Now let's go back to the beginning of the chapter. Lucy, would you kindly do back to verse 1 for us?" Then I pulled up chapter 1 again.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡu2pGIN1O0i
"Chapter 1." I began. "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Stop there?"367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHkWTUqw6WF
"Keep going." She told me. 367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡv6XyeIULEV
"Alrighty, then verse 2." I continued. "And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters."367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzTTnn23EtG
"Right there is good." Courtney said as I finished reading. "Now verses 1 and 2 tell us that God was the first thing to exist and that everything else came after him. Without him we are nothing. He created light. He formed the earth, made sea and dry land. He made every animal, every bird, every sea creature and every plant. Every other being He formed and created in the entire universe -including us. This chapter also reveals that God is omnipotent. For everything was create by Him and Him alone. Now any questions before we continue?" Nastu raised his hand.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlUhpXeIc6v
"Any questions related to what was just said?" I asked causing him to put his hand down. 367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ88R0OhkBsV
"Okay if there are no more questions." Courtney started before Natsu put his hand up again. "Yes?" Then he put his hand down. 367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdVgJtDoPlZ
"So how were the first human beings created?" Nastu asked surprisingly. (Well surprisingly for me anyway.) "And you still didn't answer Wendy's question from earlier." 367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkyzW6eV3xL
"Well thank you for those excellent questions." Courtney stated. "Does anyone else have any questions?" Then Natsu raised his hand again. "Yes, Nastu?"367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ39NoZaYm7C
"Could you answer my question from earlier?" He asked.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7FXiSS8RkR
"I will just let me see if anyone else has any questions." Courtney stated. "Any one else has any questions?" Only Natsu's hand went up. 367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPSCbkNowGg
"Yeah could you." Then his mouth was zipped shut. (And the wasn't a joke by the way. Luna literally zipped Natsu's mouth shut. He try to open the zipper but ended up failing.) Courtney then turned to Luna. 367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1nAIyKKwCH
"Sorry I had to do that or we'll be here all day." Luna told her. Courtney just rolled her eyes.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7HoAfx4y6m
"Alrighty then." She said moving on. "Moving on." Then Wendy raised her hand. "Yes Wendy?"367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNyZQBzUZTg
"You still haven't answer my question." Wendy stated. "What did God make the earth out of?"367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡr22CQbBytD
"Well Wendy I'm sorry that it took so long anyway let me answer your question now, IF THERE ARE NO MORE INTERRUPTIONS." Courtney exaggerated. No one responded. Grey was trying to hold in the laughter that he had felt for the last 3 minutes. Then Courtney continued what she was saying.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKkV4U3mW4U
"Now." Courtney began. "We know that God made everything and through him everything was created but what it was created from is actually a mircale. That's because it wasn't created from anything. It's was God's word and His word alone that everything was made. It was all nothingness before God made anything. Now if Lucy would kindly read chapter two for us." Then I opened the app to chapter two.
"Chapter 2." I began to read. "Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens,
5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
8 And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
9 And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.
11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;
12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.
13 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.
14 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.
15 And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
18 And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
19 And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed."367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡg82fi5Cj0s
"You could stop there." Courtney told me once I finished chapter 2. Suddenly the ground began to vibrate but not like in an earthquake. It began to vibrate like an explosion happened beneath us. I looked around to see if everyone was okay. 367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVXvvBGapv4
"Is everyone okay?" Courtney asked. Everyone were stating that they were fine. Then I noticed that Luna was missing.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡChTOGzSnHl
"What happened?" Lisanna asked.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7NLlXdajc7
"And where's Luna?" I added. Then I felt a tap on my shoulder. I turned around and saw Luna standing behind me making me jumped. 367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSXsfhTmpOw
"Lucy." She began. "We need to end this meeting. NOW!"367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtiaFRw11qE
"Why?" I asked. "There's only 15 minutes left in the meeting anyway. Does it have anything to do with that vibration we all felt just now?"367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPoCiO0p74F
"Look I have no time to explain." Luna exclaimed. "We just need to evacuate everyone rig...." Before Luna could finish, another tremble happened causing everyone to fall on the floor. Next thing I knew they was a tall man standing in front of me pointing a sword at my neck. He was a slim man of average height, who appeared to be in his late 20s or early 30s. He's hair was almost reaching down to his shoulders in a straight cut. He covered his eyes and hid them away from sight using a pair of sunglasses. He's figure slender figure was covered by the bright yellow armor he was wearing. Covering him from head to toe everything except his hair. He told one look at me backed away. 367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡs7ZaGctcfe
"My apologies Lady, Lucy." He said bowing in reverence which made me confused. "I didn't recognize you with your face flat on the ground like that." I rolled my eyes. Then I gave him a hard stare. I was super confused.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnTheeIyF1U
"Okay first off," I began. "Who are you and why are you here?"367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAmQY0fWVoL
"Bones?" Luna said looking at the man's face.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxuS7jV83cn
"Luna, you know this man?" I asked.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTqTCAuJ78E
"So I see that you haven't told Lady, Lucy about me." Bones stated. 367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1UaaV0EGEQ
"What are you talking about?" I asked."How do you know Luna?" Bones opened his mouth to say something but Luna stopped him.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9rpMhcYUup
"Lucy," Luna began. "Meet Bones. My fìance." Then she sighed. "We met during season 2. What are you doing here Bones?"367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4PKr12MoCS
"I came to bring you home." He replied.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbGfGpVtdhj
"Well too bad." Luna announced. "I'm not going."367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ26U8oyEGWL
"Luna please don't act like a child." Bones stated.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡALSPtigRf1
"How I'm I acting like a child?" Luna asked him. "Look what if I do come back with you. To do what? Get married? I can't get married now. I still got a life to live. And found feel happy here. Despite Chris putting us through the wringer every week."367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVDUciRvmOo
"Luna, your being selfish." Bones stated. "You're just going to leave an entire kingdom without rulers. We both knew this was going to happen at some point. You can't just keep running away from it."367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡl78dniELZJ
"Well what I'm I supposed to do?" Luna exclaimed. "Why can't you pick any of my older siblings to rule. Stella more qualified and so is Regina." Bones glared at him.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmxfV6XRV7M
"You will not mention that traitors name ever again." Bones stated sternly.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgMSJQiu2iP
"Regina is NOT A TRAITOR." Luna announced. "She wasn't the one who caused that war. I'm telling you, she was framed."367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKU7uSSNHB2
"Stop living a lie, Luna." Bones told her. "You and I both know it was her. And Stella isn' qualified." 367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3K8EjL7J6c
"She's literally next in line." Luna said. "I don't get why the queen choose me anyway. I don't even want to be queen."367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡS2I7wGuxRh
"You know exactly why your mother choose you, princess." Bones said making Luna roll her eyes. "Look I'm sure that we could just talk this out." Then Natsu rushed up to where he was and punched him. In the face. He face was red with anger. There was tears falling from his eyes. After he took a few deep breaths, he smiled.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbH9n0NolmI
"Look pal, I don't know who you are or where you came from but you could forget bring Luna with you to whatever crazy country you guys are from." Natsu told Bones. Then he look at Luna.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEU2bgVnjUp
"We'll talk later." Natsu told her. 367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7y62T1KuL7
Fortunately, Erza had left and had evaluate most of the other competitors other than the ones from the guild and of course Luna. Suddenly a tall man stepped in between Natsu and Bones. He had orang-ish yellow hair but that was all I managed to see other than his armor.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡX8WYRMQtg9
"Look sir I understand stand your concerns for the princess but this doesn't concern you." The man told Natsu. 367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUfNRv47ViE
"And who exactly are you to be getting in the middle of our conversation?" Natsu asked him back. I sighed. (I could tell where this was going.) Then the man took off his helmet and then flung it away.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHaPRj8EvLM
"What's going on here?" A familiar voice asked. (I recognize that voice anywhere.) 367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡu66RNm3zuY
"Erza Scarlet." The man said smiling. 367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡv96SNtklsv
"And who might you be?" Erza asked him. The man then bowed and smiled.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbAuQXK2Kz9
"Lux." The man told Erza. "Lux Night. I'm became commander of the royal Army since you left. Luna here is my sister and her parents had sent me to retrieve her and bring her back to our country. So I'll just take Luna and I'll be on my way." Then he turned to grab Luna but Erza grabbed him by his shirt and stopped him.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXiQhByAiXJ
"Sorry but Luna isn't coming with you." Erza announced keeping her hold on him.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFavFLQXazl
"I'm sorry Erza but that is not your decision to make." Lux told her.
"Sorry but Luna's not finished here." Erza stated firmly. "Now if you mind we were in the middle of something."
"Really? What" Lux teased. "Is Luna still on her little gospel kick? I thought she would've grown out of that by now. Besides what are people like you trying to become Christian?"
367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdSMcFMvfVr
(Now the battle was fierce. Natsu and the others were fighting alongside Luna. And they were winning. And there was a small island nearby. Which Luna had informed me was called Boney Island.) Erza then took the commander of the army (Lux) and flung him straight to Boney Island and when the rest of the army saw that, they took the injured of their troops and fled. 367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1pfzNNoGM8
"Well I'm heading back to the cabins." Erza said heading towards the camp. Then everyone else was quick to follow.

On Boney Island......367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZHKPcfqWzv
The Royal commander had just crash landed onto the island and was brushing off his clothes. He then sighed.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkAmcUXPHwd
"You make it so hard to want to help you, Sis." The commander said. Suddenly, his phone rang. He took the phone out of his pocket and answered it.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQEZmh2FYBR
"I see that you let the princess and her new friends get the better of you." The person on the other line stated. "You better fix this before Coronation day. Cause if you don't, I will." Then the person hung up.367Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVZfEa9xroq
"Your days are numbers, princess." The commander stated after he hung up. Then he headed towards the city.
