A Very Punny and Original Title"Goodbye father!"
The male goat continues to wave, a small, sad smile on his face as the ruin doors come to a close.
"Goodbye (Y/N)! Remember, call me often!"
You wave back, a large smile forming at your lips,
The ruin doors close with a soft slam, causing you to jump.
"Do..." you sigh.
Turning around, you are slightly shocked that the outside world, (or at least outside the ruins), was completely covered in snow. You look to your left, snow and trees. You look to your right,
Snow and trees.
"How does it even snow underground?" You question, but you brushed it off seeing as it wasn't THAT important.
You walk along the path, stepping over a branch lying on the ground, and continue along, until you hear a sudden noise.
You begin to walk faster, ever so slightly looking behind you, and out of the corner of your eye you could see a tall figure stalking you.
Internally you begin freaking out, and increasing your pace even more. You see a bridge up ahead and head straight for it, only to find it blocked by a gate.
"Shitshitshitshitshit," you mutter under your breath once you reach the dead end. Unexpectedly you freeze up, and you hear a voice behind you.
"H u m a n, d o n 't y o u k n o w h o w t o g r e e t a n e w p a l?" Fear courses through your veins as the deep voice speaks, but you feel yourself relax slightly. Enough to move again, at least.
"T u r n a r o u n d a n d s h a k e m y h a n d." You slowly turn around to face this stranger, and shakily grab his hand.
A slight shock ran throughout your body, and before you could comprehend what was going on, the stranger starts laughing his ass of about his practical joke.
And you, being the victim, were a bit peeved at this.
Wiping an invisible tear from his face, he looks at you once more.
"HA HA, THE JOY BUZZER IN THE HAND TRICK, IT WORKS EVERY TIME!" He laughs to himself once more.
"YOU'RE A HUMAN RIGHT?" He looks down to you, and you give him a slight nod, still a little angry about his joke, "THAT'S HILARIOUS."
"I'M PAPYRUS, PAPYRUS THE SKELETON." He directs a wide grin at you and you can't help but smile back.
"I'm (Y/N), it's nice to meet you Papyrus!" You respond.
"(Y/N) HMM? NICE NAME," your smile becomes a bit wider at his statement, "I'M ACTUALLY SUPPOSED TO BE ON WATCH FOR HUMANS RIGHT NOW BUT," He shrugs his shoulders and stuffs his hands into his sweater pocket.
"I'M NOT ACTUALLY INTERESTED IN CAPTURING ANYBODY."
You take this opportunity to look at him properly. He was certainly tall, a clear two feet above you, and adorned a orange sweater and black, knee length shorts. His feet were covered with orange sneakers. His eyes, (or lack of), were completely hollow, but you were still able to see his emotions clear as day, which you found odd.
"NOW MY BROTHER SANS, HE'S A HUMAN HUNTING FANATIC. ACTUALLY, I THINK HE'S ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS BRIDGE." He gestures to the bridge behind you.
A smirk suddenly appeared on his face, "I HAVE AN IDEA. LET'S GO THROUGH THIS GATE."
You sent him a confused look. "But, the gates blocking the bridge."
Papyrus laughs slightly, "MY BROTHER MADE THE BARS TO WIDE TO ACTUALLY STOP ANYBODY, HOW DO YOU THINK I GOT HERE?" You tilt you head slightly thinking about it. You never thought about that.
You both stepped through the gate and to the other side. Suddenly Papyrus pushed you towards a lamp and said, "QUICKLY, BEHIND THAT CONVENIENTLY-SHAPED LAMP!" Which you quickly complied.
As soon as you were behind the lamp, the most adorable being you have ever seen came running towards Papyrus. It was another skeleton, who was significantly shorter than papyrus and was dressed in a weird get-up consisting of a light blue bandanna, a grey armored top (with shoulder pads), a white t-shirt underneath, navy blue baggy pants, and light blue boots.
His short, stubby legs came to a halt, and he was slightly out of breath, but he had a clear expression of anger written on his face.
So this was Papyrus' brother? I guess he forgot to mention how utterly cute he looked.
"you know what's 'sup' brother!", whoa, and how surprisingly deep his voice was, "it's been eight days and you still haven't re-calibrated. your. puzzles!"
You see Papyrus slightly snicker at how angry his brother was, and you couldn't help the slight giggle that came from your mouth. Luckily, the short skeleton was to into his rant to notice.
"you just hang around outside your station! what are you even doing?!"
"JUST STARING AT THIS LAMP, IT'S REALLY COOL. WANNA LOOK?" You tense up at his words. Did he WANT your cover blown?
"no! i don't have time for that!" You silently breath out a sigh of relief, "what if a human comes through here?" He starts waving his arms around like a madman.
"i have to be ready! i will be the one! i must be the one! i will capture a human! then i, the great sans, will get all the things i utterly deserve!" The short skeleton- or Sans, you should say- put his hand on his chest.
"respect... recognition... i will finally be able to join the royal guard!" Sans' pupils formed into the shape of stars. How? you weren't sure. But GODDAMN was it adorable.
"people will ask to be my, 'friend'? i will bathe in a shower of kisses every morning."
Papyrus put a hand to his chin and tapped it thoughtfully.
"HMM... PERHAPS THIS LAMP WILL HELP YOU?"
Sans suddenly stomped at the ground. "papyrus! you're not helping! you lazybones! all you do is sit and bonedoggle!" You lightly giggle at the puns, "you get lazier and lazier everyday!"
"TAKE IT EASY, I GOT A TON OF WORK DONE TODAY! A SKELE-TON." You place your hands and giggle some more.
Sans smiles a bit at the pun, "papyrus!"
"i was gonna use that one!"
"OH COME ON, YOUR STILL SMILING."
Sans crosses his arms and pouts a bit, "yeah..."
Suddenly he sighs, "why does someone great as me have to do so much just to get some recognition?"
"SOUNDS LIKE YOUR REALLY WORKING YOURSELF, DOWN TO THE BONE." You almost burst out laughing at that one, but you were still going strong keeping your giggles in.
"forget it! i'm going to go attend to my puzzles! as for yours, put a little more, backbone into them!"
Giggles continuously escape you until you wondered how Sans hadn't noticed your presence yet.
"oh, and papyrus? do something about that giggling lamp, i believe it is defective. mwehheheheheheheheheh!"
And with that, Sans was gone.
You hear Papyrus call out "YOU CAN COME OUT NOW."
You stand up from behind the lamp, hearing your knees pop from crouching down for so long. You slowly made your way to Papyrus, stretching out all the uncomfortableness.
"YOU BETTER HURRY UP, HE MIGHT COME BACK SOON. AND IF HE DOES," he winks at you, "YOU'LL HAVE TO SIT THROUGH MORE OF OUR HILARIOUS JOKES."
You laugh slightly, "Alright, I'll go." You turn to walk away, but were stopped by Papyrus putting a hand on your shoulder.
"ACTUALLY, UH, CAN I ASK YOU A FAVOR?" You nod your head.
"MY BROTHERS BEEN KINDA DOWN LATELY, HE'S NEVER MET A HUMAN BEFORE, AND SEEING YOU MIGHT JUST MAKE HIS DAY."
You smile at the favor, "Of course I'll see your brother, anything to make both you and him happy!"
Papyrus removes his hand from your shoulder and places it on your head, rubbing it on your head and messing up your hair in the process.
"THANKS A MILLION, I'LL BE UP AHEAD." And with that, he turns around and goes back towards the bridge, stuffing his hands back into his pockets.
You decide not to question it and go into the direction Sans had went in. Time to meet the great Sans!
