Appearance Doesn't Matter “Sun-Light! I’m back.” Sans called trough the house. “Your mum and Sanel are gonna be late, today. So, it’s just us for dinner.”
Sans looked around for his daughter. Usually, she came bounding up like a puppy, but today, there was no sign of her. He looked at the clock, she couldn’t still be at the government building at this hour, and she didn’t say anything about visiting a friend. He began to walk up the stairs to her room, calling her name.
When he reached her door, he opened it carefully and looked in. Light was lying in her bed, the covers pulled up to her chin. She looked like she was sleeping, but there was something off. Sans could feel it in the air. Looking closer, he saw the Light was shaking violently, tears streaming down her face. Sans could have sworn his soul froze. He rushed in and to Light’s side.
“Light! Light, w
NightmareLight looked around her nervously. The monster village was eerily quiet. Not a single monster was out, and on such a nice day, that was not a good sign. She walked down the path to home, softly calling for her family.
“Mum? Dad?” She called quietly, her throat dry. “Papyrus? Undyne? Anyone?”
Light froze as she felt something crunch underfoot. Jumping back, she looked down at what she’d stepped on. She shrank away in horror as she saw a small pile of dust there. Her body began to tremble as terrible imaged began to play in her mind.
“M-Mum?!” Light borderline screamed, panic gripping her heart. “Dad! This isn’t funny you guys! Answer me!”
Light spun around, her ponytail whipping her face. There, standing behind her, was Sans. His face was a mixture of worry and relief. He looked slightly out of breath.
She ran to him, relieved that she’d found someone, but scared that he was the
SanelLight stared at the tiny bundle in Sans’ arms. The little horned skeleton was wrapped in a violet blanket, her light blue eyes barely open. Light pursed her lips, looking up at Sans, uncertainty written all over her face.
“What... What if I drop her? Or hurt her, or...?”
“Light,” Sans interrupted seriously. “She’s barely awake. You are the kindest, sweetest, most gentle human I know. Nothing bad ’s gonna happen. Sanel needs to know that you’re part of the family too.”
With that said, he placed the baby skeleton in Light’s trembling arms. As Light held the tiny infant, she felt her anxiety slowly melt away. Sanel looked up at her and gave a small, innocent smile. Light’s eyes felt hot, and they were starting to sting.
“Ya see, Sun-Light?” Sans said smiling. “She already loves you.”
Light’s heart swelled to the point she thought it would burst. Hot, wet tears slipped down her face, and s
WindedRainbow Dash heaved an exhausted sigh as she put away her Wonder Bolt uniform. It had been a long day, and her bed was calling her, along with the latest issue of Daring Do. Just as she was about to head off, she heard somepony call her name. Turning around she saw Spitfire walking up to her, her own uniform also put away. She was wearing an expression that Rainbow had never seen before, and, as a result, couldn't read. It was serious, but at the same time gentle.
"Care to fly with me?" she asked.
Rainbow Dash was tired, but something in the look on Spitfire's face told her that she should say 'yes'. So she did. Walking out to the training grounds, Rainbow followed Spitfire as she flew off in an unfamiliar pattern.
"You know," Spitfire said suddenly. "I don't think I ever told you what my nickname is."
Rainbow Dash blinked. No, Spitfire hadn't told her what her nickname was, but she'd always assumed she didn't have one. Spitfire always seem too serious and level-headed to end up doing
Lady of the MansionLewis sighed as he drove the old van through the dark, foreboding forest. It had been a whole year since Aria's death, and none of them were over it. Vivi was still obsessed with finding some way to contact their friend, Mystery was sulky and forlorn after the loss of his loving and sweet mistress, and Lewis... He was still trying to make sense of it all.
It was meant to be an easy job. A cave where people had kept hearing strange noises and getting turned around. Nothing really dangerous had happened, and it was simply that is was getting inconvenient and unnerving. While there, Aria had kept insisting that they leave, she kept saying that she had a 'bad feeling' about the place. They had ignored her pleads, thinking that she was just being their timid, fearful Aria, though Lewis had promised her that he wouldn't let anything bad happen to them, to calm her down. Lewis sighed as he thought of that. Why had made that promise? They had gotten separated from Vivi and Mystery and had ende
