I woke up with a start, thinking that maybe it was a dream.
Maybe i'm just in bed, sleeping through the night.
Maybe that substance never existed.
I'm still on the ground, in the alleyway, left for dead.
I'm burned all over.
I let out a long, low moan of pain, trying to release what I felt, though no one could possibly hear me.
Or could they?
"Kid." I heard a low whisper nearby, and I turned to see Sans kneeling next to me. "You finally woke up."
"Yeah." I coughed. "Glad you noticed."
Sans took my hand and helped me up, and I as I stood I noticed the immense pain that came with it.
All the parts of me that were affected by the fireball were red and sore.
"You need to see a doctor." My old friend muttered. "Or something."
I shook my head. "I don't need to go to a doctor."
Sans crossed his arms. "You really think so?"
"Sort of." I muttered. "But It's not like I have to listen to you."
He shrugged. "Well, I'm older."
I gave Sans a look. "Just shut up. I need to go find out where Kabby went."
The skeleton shrugged. "Alright then."
I turned to walk away.
"Hey, uh..." "You know when you're done with... you know, whatever it is you're trying to do, that you're gonna have be judged again, right?" He murmured.
I stared at him a moment, then turned, and slowly walked away;
dragging my feet on the ground as I went.
Why, of all people, did Sans have to show up?
I wish I killed him. I could have just skipped Asgore and Flowey. I didn't need to skip Sans.
I wish I could go back.
I'll probably suffer more or less this time around, when Sans 'judges' me.
Because, of course, he borrowed a human Soul to cross the barrier, just like Flowey, right?
Except, I doubt Flowey really borrowed it. Knowing him, he'll never give the two Souls he has back. He'll just leave his poor father in the Underground, forgotten.
Not that I care. Haha...
Ha ha ha.
I tried my best to push that thought away. Gotta focus.
"Kabby!" I called, though it was barely a whisper. "Kabby..."
I sighed in exasperation.
I'm so tired...
I'll just see if I can find her tomorrow. I mean, it shouldn't be very hard. Next morning there'll probably be a huge fire wherever she is, right?
Yeah. I'm just gonna turn in.
I walked through the door, ignoring Christina's snoring, and fell down into bed, instantly falling into a slumber.
I woke up to someone shaking me really hard.
"Wake up, sleepyhead!" I heard.
"Refusal..." I muttered, pushing away whoever was shaking me, without bothering to look.
"Frisk, it's like noon. Go eat your breakfast."
I sprung up in bed, staring at the person who was talking to me, who was, of course, Cristina.
She wore a worried expression on her face, despite her rather carefree-sounding voice.
"Did you, um, stay up late last night?" She asked, rather casually.
I rolled my eyes. "Duh. I woke you up at like 1 AM freaking out because there was black stuff on my face."
"Um... oh." Cristina giggled. "I, uh, thought it was a dream."
I rubbed my sleepy eyes. "I sure hope we dreamed the same thing. Now let me sleep, I only got to sleep at like 5."
"But.. you gotta get up. You're sleep schedule is gonna get all messed up, and you need to eat."
"Shut the **** up. This isn't your problem."
Cristina put a hand over her mouth.
"And don't you DARE lecture me about how i'm not supposed to swear. Gimmie a break." I growled. "You don't know what I've gone through, and THIS is where I'm going to draw the line. You will NOT get in my way, or tell me to do anything, from now on. I get to do whatever I want. GOT IT?"
I got out of bed and stomped down the stairs, muttering to myself about how this isn't fair.
I should get to do what I want.
I did get to do what I want, earlier.
It's not my fault that I can't Reset anymore.
But if it's not mine, who's fault is it?
It probably is my fault. There's no denying it.
Or is there?
Maybe It's not my fault. Maybe I can just find someone else to blame.
... Like Kabby. She was planning with Flowey, right? What was she doing out in the middle of the night when the Hate got her?
What was she planning? How did she apparently know about Chara?
Those are some unanswered questions for now.
I looked up at the sky, but saw no smoke.
"Kabby isn't going to be easy to find." I muttered to myself.
"Whatever. She's got to be somewhere around here."
"And when I find her, she's going to tell me what's going on, or else."
