Erza is in the sky floating above what looks like her funeral, as everyone is crying and Makarov is saying some words on her behalf. The 10 Wizard saints come and say they have decided to award one of the 2 open titles of one of the 10 Wizard Saints to Erza on her behalf. Natsu comes and screams that Erza is not dead, kicking flowers off of her tomb when everyone subdues him. Erza realizes that this is not what she wanted, she wanted to sacrifice herself to make everyone happy, not to see them all sad. All of a sudden she's on the beach, Natsu holding her in the water with everyone running towards them, happy to see them safe. They go with Sho and the others to invite them to join Fairy Tail, but they end up going their own way. When they get home, Fairy Tail has been rebuilt, with a lot of new additions. Juvia has joined the guild as well, and she brought Gajeel with her. Everyone is upset but Marakov calms them saying it was his decision. Later Gajeel is called out by 2 fairy tail members to the tree where he had attacked them back during the Phantom Lord ordeal to fight. He sits there and takes it without fighting back, when Laxus comes, furious that he is in the guild, and because of what people are now saying about the guild. He bets Gajeel to a pulp when the other fairy tail members realize that he is not fighting back since he wants to accepted. Laxus shoots a bolt of lightning at the girl and Gajeel jumps in front of it taking the hit. Gajeel then walks off, now injured, saying he has work to do.
