Papyrus
Papyrus
This is not good
Papyrus looked down at the boy, eating his burger inside of Grillby's.
Papyrus
Papyrus
Undyne says we don't have to catch humans, but the king says we do.
He put his bony hand on Frisk's head.
Papyrus
Papyrus
And this human seems to have shrunk from last time. His clothes don't even fit.
Sans
Sans
Yeah. He must have shopped at a half-off sale.
Papyrus
Papyrus
This is serious, Sans. What do we do?
Sans
Sans
Eat?
Papyrus
Papyrus
No, I mean, the human. I, I don't want to put it through dangerous puzzles.
Sans
Sans
Then, don't.
Papyrus
Papyrus
But, the king says we still have to go after them! Eventually, Undyne will …
Sans
Sans
Chill, bro. No problem
Sans looked down at the boy. He wanted to have a little time to just relax before he had to deal with what was coming.
Sans
Sans
You done yet?
The kid still had more than half of his sandwich.
Frisk
Frisk
Fffffrrrrisssk? Need Fffffrrrrisssk.
Papyrus
Papyrus
Who's Fffffrrrrisssk?
Sans
Sans
Beats me. Hey, are we off-duty for the whole day? I could get some rest.
Papyrus
Papyrus
No. No, we are not!
Papyrus left his burger and chair.
Papyrus
Papyrus
We shouldn't be late. We must watch out for humans! Or, uh, other humans? Maybe? Intruders, we shall watch for intruders.
Sans
Sans
Uh, okay, cool. I'll be right there.
Sans looked down at the boy.
Sans
Sans
So, what's your real name?
Frisk
Frisk
Ffffrrrisssk.
Sans
Sans
So, you are looking for Frisk, and your name is Frisk too? Heh, cool.
He popped his last bit of burger in his mouth.
Sans
Sans
Come on. I'm taking you to a special knock-knock door.
Frisk
Frisk
But? Ffffrrrrissskyyyy.
Frisk's sad eyes were beginning to water.
Frisk
Frisk
Momma is Fffrrisky.
Sans choked on his burger slightly as he reached for his catsup. Oh, yeah. His mom was inside that thing too?
Sans
Sans
Well, Frisky's not here anymore. You're on your own.
Frisk
Frisk
Is!
Frisk started to cry and grabbed onto Sans clothes again.
Frisk
Frisk
Is, Sans, is!
This kid was really emotional. It wasn't half as composed as it used to be. As he looked around he saw others looking at him, including Grillby.
Sans
Sans
We need to go.
Frisk
Frisk
Momma!
Frisk kept rubbing his eyes. Sans tried to lure him out, but it wasn't working.
Frisk
Frisk
Is, Is, Is, IS, IS!
Picking him up, Sans had no choice but to carry him out. Yeah, he really missed that composure now. But, well, at least it wouldn't be resetting time and screwing his life up anymore.
And that was worth the price of a little bit of babysitting.
Toriel's Backdoor
The kid pouted on his shoulder most of the way through the snow. When he reached Toriel's door, he didn't even need to knock. She probably already heard the blubbering.
Sans
Sans
Knock-knock?
Toriel
Toriel
Who's there?
There wasn't as much enthusiasm in her voice.
Sans
Sans
"Orange."
Toriel
Toriel
Orange who?
Sans
Sans
Orange you looking for some company?
Sans tried to pull Frisk away from himself, but he wouldn't let go.
Sans
Sans
Come on. It's Toriel. You remember her, don't you?
Frisk just shook his head and still didn't let go.
Toriel
Toriel
No. I told the human if it left, it could not come back. Staying here, it would lose its light.
No. That's not the answer Sans wanted to hear. She was supposed to take Frisk, and he was supposed to be back at his post to get some much deserved rest. To enjoy the ending to all the mind-numbing resetting.
Sans
Sans
Knock-knock?
Toriel
Toriel
No.
Sans
Sans
Pull.
Toriel
Toriel
No.
Sans
Sans
Pullease take it? It's kind of changed.
Sans tried to pull it off again.
Sans
Sans
If it gets into an encounter, it's dead this time.
Toriel
Toriel
No, I will have faith in the child. You should too.
Sans
Sans
He's shrunk though. He got smaller.
Toriel
Toriel
Humans don't do that.
Sans
Sans
Okay, well, it's a different human?
He waited for the voice but it didn't return. She wouldn't believe that, she knew all the humans that fell. They had to go through the ruins to ever come out. This. This wasn't a good time. Dang.
Sans
Sans
What am I supposed to do with you now?
TO TEMMIE'S SECRET AREA
Temmie
Temmie
Hoi, I'm Temmie, and dis is my friend-!
Frisky
Frisky
Now is not the time to mess with me.
Temmie backed away from her. She felt around her shoulders. The air was getting colder. She was getting closer. When she had come to, she realized she was finally by herself. Except that her tremendously difficult opponent was gone. And so was her six-year-old son. In fact, she wasn't even in Judgment Hall, the blast hurling her to the castle.
As she moved back to Judgment Hall, she sorted through the parts of those that didn't teleport right. They . . . didn't all match. Considering there were seven Frisks, it looked like at least two more had escaped.
Frisky didn't know why her boy was missing, but she had to assume Sans the Skeleton took him. Frisk would be almost immobile, infantile after so long of being together. No matter how angry Sans was, she had to believe Sans knew Frisk couldn't hurt anyone and just took him to safety. It was bad enough to be stuck in the Underground. It was bad enough sharing a body and switching consciousness between several people. She had to believe that, really had to because . . .
Sans didn't accept mercy. He wanted to crack them. Viciously. She had no chance against him, but he just took the one thing she couldn't let go of. Mere human or not, she had to find a way to get him to ACT and not FIGHT to get her son back. "Do you have any extra clothes?" She still wasn't as tall as she was in her original form, a couple of inches off, but the program that teleported her there would probably get the data worked out. The fact that she even survived the emergency soul teleporting transfer was enough to not want to complain.
Temmie
Temmie
Temmie has new item!
Frisky
Frisky
Temmie, I am really not in the mood, unless it's clothes.
Then again, maybe the new item was a weapon? No, she had grabbed the knife and the locket. And that was about it. She had to actually cover herself with echo flowers, which didn't work the best.
Temmie
Temmie
Temmie has new items!
Frisky stepped closer to Temmie and a digital menu opened up. She moved her hands through the options and spotted the new things.
RED BOX SNAKE
HOODIE
Frisky
Frisky
Can I see the red box snake?
Temmie
Temmie
Red Box Snake
Red Box Snake
Frisky didn't waste any time and paid for it, grabbing it. MP3 player. She put the small attached ear pod that looked like it survived in her ear and turned it on. She skipped through the first few songs. 'Sonofa-! '
Frisky
Frisky
This was my sisters.
Temmie
Temmie
No, girl never brought it in.
Frisky
Frisky
She wouldn't. She was killed. It's a calling card.
Frisky held the MP3 player close. PERSEVERANCE must have survived and had already reached out for help. She had to hurry, knowing exactly where PERSEVERANCE would strike first. The same place she was heading to.
Frisky
Frisky
I'll take the Hoodie too.
After she put the blue hoodie over her, she placed the MP3 player in her pocket. She kept her ear pod in as she covered her head. This was ending. Soon. One way or another. Frisky would never hurt an innocent Monster. But she had an evil person in her sight, and they had to find out what she could do with her knife.
SNOWDIN
Papyrus
Papyrus
Sans!
Sans
Sans
Huh?
Sans looked over at his brother, Papyrus.
Sans
Sans
Sup?
He looked around himself. He was at his post. Did it still reset? Then, he felt something over his shoulders and looked over. Frisk was sleeping on his back. He breathed a sigh of relief. No reset.
Papyrus
Papyrus
You can't work at your post with a human sleeping on you!
Sans
Sans
I didn't have a problem.
Papyrus
Papyrus
Sans!
Sans
Sans
What?
Papyrus
Papyrus
Do something with it.
Sans
Sans
Well, what?
Papyrus tapped his mandible.
Toriel wasn't going to take it. Eventually the king was going to make Undyne look for it again.
Papyrus
Papyrus
Well, maybe the other human will take it?
Sans
Sans
Another human? What other human?
Papyrus
Papyrus
Where have you been? Have you not been checking the security cameras? You must be on alert for intruders!
Sans pushed himself up slightly.
Sans
Sans
What other human?
Papyrus
Papyrus
A tall one, as tall as me! Why do you think the king wants one so bad? That is why we need to do something with the tiny little human. I-I think we are about to start hunting humans again soon.
TO FRISKY WALKING
Frisky unplugged the earpod and turned the music up as loud as she could. She sung along with it in the snow, even dancing. If she could attract PERSEVERANCE to her before she reached Sans, at least she would have peace of mind the Monsters would be okay. Ugh. Encounter. She saw an alert hit her. Damn. A Gyftrot was confronting her.
Frisky
Frisky
I wouldn't do that if I were you. It's not a good idea.
Still, she was forced into the encounter. As had happened many times before, a heart appeared in front of her. Her soul. In her world, fighting happened without anything like signs anymore, but, in the Underground, the signs were a magic courteousy to help Monsters from killing each other accidentally. Any caught who didn't use the buttons right would be punished to death. It was because souls were special. Tender, so easy to break, and there were so few Monsters that survived in the Underground. It also made it easier to see someone's true power to avoid battles someone couldn't win. Plus, GOLD. What they called GOLD was just digital points kept in an account, used instantly across the Underground.
Every Monster also had their interests, problems, or habits blazing against the board. No one chose to tell someone what would end the encounter, it was a subconscious response that the board found inside each opponent. Those options lied in ACT, while ITEM left you time to eat or use something which would make your soul stronger. MERCY was the button Frisky tended to use the most, with FIGHT hardly ever used. As Toriel taught her many times, most Monsters could be reasoned with. She pushed ACT and saw UNDECORATE. Coming closer she took something off of it.
After the battle was over, she left again. If she was running into Gyftrot's, she was close.
