While on her journey, Lucy meets Natsu Dragneel and Happy. These two are on a resilient mission to find the Dragon Igneel, Natsu’s father.
During the journey, Lucy meets a man that tricks her and tries to abduct her, but Natsu rushes to her rescue.
In this unfortunate event, Lucy’s luck emerges as Natsu tells her that he is a member of the famous guild she so desperately wants to join and he invites her.
