Why else would you be picking your way through the woods in the middle of the night, one hand holding your phone as a flashlight and the other clasped around the simple keyring in your pocket? Heading out here at night was definitely questionable; it was what happened in horror movies before the mass murderer popped out from behind the trees with an ax. Those kind of thoughts creeped you out, so you decided to block them by reflecting over why you were headed out here in the first place. You had to get away.

No one had pushed you as to why you were at your Grandpa’s lodge in the first place–even though they had each let their imaginations run wild–and you had never volunteered the information. And that, coupled with the fact that Blueberry could hear you arguing with your boyfriend in another room, set off so many red flags.

" Papyrus' grip on his spoon tightens almost imperceptibly. Sans notices. Papyrus looks down at his oatmeal, then back up at Sans, a smile on his face.

Now, after realizing that you were drunk enough for the forest to spin a bit? “Okaaay.” On that train of thought, you pull your phone out, holding down the power button in a ragdoll’s grasp.

You’ve had a long day out and about running errands, but the sheer relief you feel coming home at long last makes it all worthwhile.

You’ve lived here for awhile now, and you’ve never been happier.
