[School] Drabble prompt: for deathless-soul!
Juvia sat with her arms propped up on the desk with her head in her hands and watched outside the window. It was nearly time for summer break, and the heat of the sun was poring on her as she was consumed in her fantasy dream world. Gray, her major crush, was absent today with an a virus, and she was looking forward to stopping at his house on the way home to see him. Until then, she was prepared to concentrate on the day ahead of her. The bell just rang, signalling that it was time for lunch. The students around her, including herself, pushed their desks together and took out their lunches. She sat with her friends Lucy, Natsu, and Erza, as they talked about their day.
To her left she noticed a classmate with his head on his desk and a rumble coming from his stomach. He usually ate lunch everyday with his friends in another class, but today he looked as if he decided to catch up on some sleep. Underneath her chair was a bento box she specially prepared for Gray to give after school, but now another idea suddenly struck her. At first giving it a lot of thought, she decided to buy a treat for Gray on the way home, and took up the lunch box in her hands.
Walking over to his desk Juvia began, “Soul, did you forget to bring your lunch today?” His head perked up and said, “No I didn’t feel like it today, I had a big breakfast and-” he was cut off with his uncontrollable rumbling stomach. She just placed it on his desk and told him, “Just ignore the writing to Gray- sama on it, it’s really fine, you won’t get anything done today if you don’t eat something.” She flashed a smile and left the room, forcing him to eat it.
Soul’s head swayed back and forth as he sat at his desk in class. He felt like he would fall asleep any second. He had stayed up late the night before and over slept causing him to skip breakfast to run to school. Luckily he made it to his desk in the back corner before the teacher noticed he was late. He was tired and his stomach was killing him with hunger.
He slumped in his chair as he felt the summer heat all around him. He put his head down on his desk and thought to himself that he would only rest for a bit. He shut his eyes and he quickly fell asleep till he was woken up sometime later by the bell dismissing the students to lunch.
Soul’s stomach began to rumble as he began to smell the lunches everyone was eating. He tried to go back to sleep yet his stomach kept him awake. He heard footsteps and heard a voice asking him if he had forgotten his lunch. He tried to come up with a lie that he had a big lunch, but was interrupted by his stomach. Juvia left a bento box on his desk asking him to ignore the writing to Gray on it and to eat it or he wouldn’t get much work done today.
Soul stared at the lunch left in front of him after Juvia left the room smiling at him. I can’t not eat this lunch. She seemed like she wanted me to eat it. He thought to himself. He continued to stare at the box till his stomach rumbled again. He finally decided to eat the lunch. He put his hands together and said thank you for the meal eventhough Juvia wasn’t around. He lifted the lid off the lunch box and sure enough Gray’s name was written on the food surrounded by a heart. Soul laughed to himself a bit after seeing this. I wonder how Gray would react if he saw this.He thought to himself as he slowly brought a piece of his lunch closer to his mouth.He stared at it hesitating thinking if he should eat it or not and how it would taste. After a moment he decided to take a bite and found that it had an amazing taste. It had such an amazing taste. It was perfect in every aspect. He quickly finished the rest of the lunch and decided he should go try to find Juvia to thank her for the lunch and tell how good it was.
