Happy tries to stop Natsu because he wants to eat it raw. However, Natsu claims this fish is his and eats the whole thing in front of him. Happy, who is shocked by Natsu, runs away from Natsu; he tells him that their friendship is over. Lucy asks Natsu if he is going after them. When Natsu makes a face, Lucy teases Natsu that he is not going to get a girl if he continues to act this way. Lucy's words make Natsu remember bright red shoes. Natsu gets up to leave, but when Lucy asks him again, Natsu tells her to shut up. Back at the guild, Lucy sees Mirajane organizing the archives. Lucy helps Mirajane. When Lucy discovers a photo of Natsu, the others, and her in the old days, Mirajane explains Happy's birth and how everyone act like in their childhood days.
In the flashback, Natsu and Gray were always fighting until Erza breaks them up. She explains that Natsu always had a lonely face. After a rainy scene, Natsu is training to beat Erza and Gray in the East forest. Suddenly, an blue spotted egg lands on him. Back in the guild, Natsu brings the egg to Makarov. He explains to Gray that it is a Dragon egg, and he asks Makarov to force the egg to hatch. However, Makarov yells at him that magic will defile life and love will make the egg hatch. Erza appears and tells Natsu that all he knows is destruction. Mirajane appears and challenges Erza. The two girls fight and insult each other even though Erza tells them not to fight. When Natsu tries to act tough, Lisanna appears and says the same line that Lucy said earlier. Lisanna tells Natsu that she will help him hatch the egg and that the egg needs warmth. Yet, Natsu cooks the egg with fire. After Lisanna changes into a bird, she takes care of the egg. Elfman, who envys Lisanna's full Take Over, tells Cana that he wishes he could do that. Elfman wish he can see his parakeet.
In South Gate Park, Happy's egg move and jumps into Natsu's arms. Lisanna thinks the egg wants Natsu. When Lisanna asks Natsu to build a home, he fails when the rocks collapse. Lisanna changes in her purple bunny form and create a straw home. The "newly wed" (pretend) move into their new home. Lisanna tells Natsu to warm the egg together. Back at Fairy Tail Guild, Macao and Wakaba tells Laxus that Natsu has found a Dragon Egg. Also, Wakaba tells Macao that Natsu and Lisanna has made a secret base. Wakaba thinks they are in love while Mirajane smashes the table in anger. She thinks Natsu is on Erza's side since Lisanna has not come home.
In East Forest, Gorian the Vulcan tries to take Happy's egg, so he can eat it. Natsu decides to take on the Vulcan since he is the father. He also fights the Vulcan without magic because the Vulcan is using his bare fists. Natsu defeats the Vulcan after ramming into his head. It rain suddenly. Natsu and Lisanna rush to their house with Lisanna coming home first. Lisanna welcomes Natsu home (Japanese tradition) and expects Natsu to respond politely. Lisanna tells Natsu that Mirajane and Elfman can cook, but he thinks Lisanna is going to cook the egg. Lisanna asks Natsu if she can be his wife. Natsu blushes while Lisanna tells him that she is joking. The rain stops and the sunset appears. Lisanna, Natsu, and the egg stares at the beautiful sunset. During the night, a shadow appears and take the egg.
At the Fairy Tail guild, Natsu and Lisanna asks their guild about the missing egg. Natsu fights Mirajane after she tells Natsu that he might have eaten the egg. Meanwhile, Makarov reassures Wakaba and Macao that the children's fighting shows great respect and love for each other. Mirajane calls Natsu cute and tells Erza that she ate it since Mirajane calls her a pig. The two girls fight while Cana remembers something about Elfman wanting an egg. Elfman arrives with the egg; he explains that he is keeping it warm since Natsu and Lisanna were not holding it during the night. Suddenly, the egg hatches, and Happy emerges. Happy lands on Natsu's head and says his first word, Aye. Also, Elfman has a blue parakeet even though it is not the same parakeet. Natsu decides to name the newborn cat "Happy" because he brings happiness. Reedus paints Happy as a dragon since Natsu calls Happy a dragon. Lucy realizes that she has never seen Lisanna.
Back to the lake in the forest, Natsu remembers Lisanna when they are a bit older. Lisanna breaks up their argument. He remembers that he has to be the father, and he arrives bearing lots of fish for Happy. Happy and Natsu make up while Lucy heads over to Happy and Natsu. The camera points to Lisanna.
