Chapter 158: Door of Memories
[Side text: These unflinching hearts... // ...bring new hope!!]
Natsu: We can hear you...
Gray: Destroy all six Lachryma...... // ...at the same... time...
Lucy: And the lucky one gets to punch that Zero guy's face in too... // ...right?
Happy: Eighteen minutes left... // We've got to hurry... We have to protect Charle and Wendy's Guild!
Hibiki: Th... This connection won't last... much longer... / I've transmitted a map into all of your heads......... // Each... of the Lachryma... is marked with a number......... / Before the connection breaks... each of you decide... on a number...
Natsu: Number one!!!!
Lucy: I'll take number three!! / ...please don't let Zero be there...
Ichiya: I shall handle number four!!! // The perfume tells me that it is the closest to my location!
Erza: I think you mean the map.
Ichiya: Was there really a need to be so blunt...?
Erza: I'll handle number five.
Natsu: Erza?!! // You're all right now?!
Erza: Yes... // Thanks to a certain someone.
Gérard: Then I'll - // ?!
Erza: You'll take number six.
Natsu: There's someone else there? // Who was that just now?!
[Side text: Mashima's Ramblings (1): I've got no time for gaming! I have so many games that I've bought and still have yet to even open... But I will play Winning Eleven 2010.]
Erza: Natsu doesn't know about your situation yet. / He still considers you an enemy. / You should keep quiet.
Gray: ...We lost the connection...
Lucy: Hibiki really was at his limit...
Happy: At any rate, it looks like we have six people! // Let's go!! / Whoever runs into Zero will have to take him out!! Everyone has their own stations to attend to, so you can't expect backup!!
Ichiya: Nghhh... // Mehhn... / Mehhn...! // Mehhhhhhn! // Number four!!! I must reach number four!!!! / Everybody is counting on me!!!! // I cannot betray their expectations!!!!
[SFX: (lots of panting)]
Ichiya: I'm not... out of breath... at all... // I am still young!!!
[Box: Lachryma No. 1]
Zero: So you still live? // What business have you here? // Brat. // Hm?
Natsu: Let's see who it's gonna be that's destroyed in the end... // Me, or you!
Erza: I heavily suspect Zero is at Lachryma number one.
Wendy: That's where Natsu-san went!!!
Erza: He has an extremely good nose. / I don't doubt he chose number one precisely because that was Zero's location.
[Side text: Mashima's Ramblings (2): Bobby-kun, a scary guy on my staff, had his birthday recently, so I gave him a moe-game.]
Wendy: Then we should go and back him up!! If we all fight together -
Erza: Don't underestimate Natsu. // We can trust him to handle this.
Gérard: Na... // ...tsu...
Erza: Now, let's head for our own designated stations!! / Number five for me. Gérard, you're number six.
Gérard: No... // It's... nothing... // Natsu... // Dragneel.........
[no text just attack]
[no text just more attack]
Zero: Hm. // Your movements are more impressive than before.
Zero: Dark Capriccio!!!!
Zero: Don't make the mistake of thinking my magic is the same as Brain's.
Natsu: Nghahh! // Waghh!
Zero: Ahahahahahah!!!! // Which of us will be destroyed, you ask?!! // I should think that is all too obvious!!!!
Natsu: Karyuu no...
[TN: Fire Dragon Fist]
Natsu: Nghhhhh... // ...HAAAAAAAA... // ...AAAAHHHHHHHHHH...!!
Natsu: *pant* / *pant* // *pant* / *pant*
Zero: Stopping a magic designed for penetration head-on... // Very interesting... // !!
Zero: Who's there?!
Zero: You... // So your memories have returned...?

Kana: Awwwww, that's so damn cute~~!!! Hey, listen, everyone~~~!! Lucy's gone seventeen years without a single boyfriend~~~~!!!
Lucy: Gahhh! Stop that~~!
Kana: Don't you worry.
Kana: My cards don't lie. // They're telling me today is the day you have a fateful encounter.

Lucy: But... // (Whaaaaaa?!!!) // I - I'm fine! Just fine!!! Take it!!!
Guy: Ah - wait......!
Lucy: (That was a shock~~~~~!!!! // You're not telling me that random guy I wouldn't know from Adam was my "fateful encounter", right...?!!)
Guy: Wait a moment, please...!
[Side text: Mashima's Ramblings (5): I've always liked my coffee black, but recently I've developed a taste for more sweet varieties as well.]
Guy: Are you... a local of this town?
Guy: Then if it wouldn't be too much trouble... could you show me around?
Lucy: Wh... Why should I do that?!!!
Guy: I'm travelling from place to place and writing a novel, you see.
Lucy: (A novel...)
Guy: I use all the different things I find in the towns that I visit as inspiration for my writing.
Lucy: Now, that I can understand. A variety of experiences can really get the ideas flowing onto the page.
Guy: You wouldn't happen to be writing a book as well...?
Lucy: N - Not really... well... a little...
Guy: Look... I'll give you that book from before, no charge. / So how about it? Show me around, just for today.
Lucy: Oh, all right then... // I'll give you a tour as a fellow novelist.
Guy: Oh, I don't know about "novelist"... // I still have a long way to go...
Lucy: Well, same goes for me!
Natsu: What's up with that creepy face?
Lucy: At what point was my face at all "scary"?!!!!
Natsu: Anyway, we're heading out for a job!!
Happy: We have to get to the client's place by tomorrow morning, so we're catching the night train!
Lucy: Right now~? I can't do that!!!
Natsu: The heck? Aren't you always going on about how you need more money?
Lucy: But I can't do this today!!! // After all...
Guy: Why don't you meet me for dinner tonight at nine? // I'd like to talk with you a little more.
Lucy: ...I have a prior appointment!
Natsu: I see...
Lucy: Hey... you don't have to get all depressed like that...!
Mirajane: ...The two of them have been looking forward to going on this job with you all day, you know.
Lucy: Wha~t? You're kidding...!
Mirajane: They were probably trying to surprise you... // They were saying this time was special, because it's your birthday today.
Lucy: Today... isn't my birthday, though...
Mirajane: Oh, dear...
Lucy: Ah... It's almost nine...
[Box: Magnolia Station]
Happy: So... Lucy didn't show up, huh...?
Lucy: Did someone mention my name?
Lucy: Sorry I'm late!!
Natsu: Lucy?!!! // I thought you had something else you had to......
Lucy: Oh, forget about that!! Today is special, right? / ...Even if it isn't my birthday...
Natsu: Sure it is! // It's exactly one year today since you joined Fairy Tail, right?
Lucy: (Of course... // My fateful encounter was
today after all......... // This exact same day... one year ago!)
