After finishing a job in Magnolia alone, the shadow dragon slayer heads towards a nearby restaurant to fil his stomach up so it could last him his walk back to Sabertooth. As he walks along the path, he hears many whispers about how ‘Fairy Tail did it all again’. Whatever. It wasn’t any of his business anyway. Rogue is a mage of Sabertooth and he shouldn’t care about the
Opening the door that held many people eating inside, everyone’s scent flowed towards Rogue’s nose. From posh girl’s perfume to the stench of the rubbish bin from the kitchen.
As the shadow dragon slayer takes a seat at a spare table and a scent catches his attention. “Lightning?” he thought. Orga quickly popped up into his mind. No, Orga is supposed to be on a request to Harugeon. Rogue scanned the restaurant and he spotted the lightning fairy.“His name… Laxus wasn’t it?”he still wasn’t too sure what his name was, but he was sure that this guy was a fairy.
Rogue ordered his food and kept looking at Laxus from time-to-time with a strange expression.
Laxus’s elbows rested on the cheap wood counter top, fingers laced together under his chin. He had just come back from a job with the Raijinshuu and, well…it put quite a toll on him. Mentally.
The waitress placed a second mug of beer in front of him and he nodded to her gratefully. The booze back at Fairy Tail was cheaper, but he’d sooner take a long walk off a short pier before going back there after the horrors he dealt with during the mission.

This man…he recognized him. He had never met him, but he was from Sabertooth, and he had taken part in the games. Instead of simply turning around like a normal person would, Laxus stood and made his way towards the guy.
”I knew I felt someone glaring at me, Sabertooth,” He spat out, looking down at him.
