After Natsu Dragneel and Lucy Heartfilia form a team, which, according to Natsu, was suggested by Plue, Lucy's newest Celestial Spirit, Natsu shows Lucy a job. The job clearly states that if the Mages successfully take a book out of a mansion of a man named Duke Everlue, they will be rewarded with 200,000. However, the job also has a warning sign; calling him a womanizer, lecher, and pervert. It also says that the Duke is presently searching for a new blond maid. Lucy turns to face Natsu and Happy, who are secretively talking about their plan, and notice that she has been fooled.
Lucy, Happy, and Natsu arrive at the mansion of the Job's client, Kaby. Once there, Kaby explains that he solely wishes for them to find the only copy of a book named "Day Break," and to burn it. Natsu, Lucy, and Happy are even more surprise when they hear that the price has been rise to 2,000,000. The team heads towards Duke's mansion, eagerly.
Lucy stands outside the mansion's gates calling for the owner, when suddenly a big woman comes out from the ground. The woman calls for Duke Everlue, telling him that a girl has arrived for the maid job. Duke comes out from the ground, the same way his other maid did, and inspects Lucy. However, Lucy ends up getting rejected for being too ugly. Duke's four maids come out of the ground, he shows Lucy his maids, and states that only "beautiful" girls would suit him. Duke and his maids leave. Lucy, sitting under a tree, is called useless by Natsu. Nonetheless, Lucy tries to defend herself telling Natsu that Everlue has a bad sense of beauty. Lucy gets up, ready to try and infiltrate the mansion one more time but this time they will do it another way. Inside the mansion, Everlue watches Lucy, Natsu, and Happy through a camera. He sees Lucy's guild stamp and recognizes that it's from the guild Fairy Tail. He tells two shadowy figures to get rid of them.
Happy carries Lucy to the roof of the mansion while Natsu thinks of a way to get inside. Lucy explains to them that they have to sneak in otherwise the military will take action. Natsu uses the heat from his hand to melt a part of the window. Lucy, Natsu, and Happy successfully infiltrate the mansion and begin to look for the book. Happy puts on a mask and shows it to Natsu while Lucy looks for the book. Everlue's maids come from the ground with tools, ready to fight the infiltrators.
Natsu, however, easily fights and defeats the maids. They keep searching for the book, and find it, when they are suddenly confronted by Duke Everlue and the Vanish Brothers. Lucy reads the book while Natsu fights the Vanish Bothers, Lucy tells Natsu that the book holds a secret, which prompts Everlue's interest. Everlue chases after Lucy and leaves Natsu to the Vanish Bothers.
