‘Oh my god he’s so tall-’
Maybe I should be more concerned about other things, but he was so tall . I am the shortest one here, but I only went to like- Error's hips. He towered over everyone . The only person who might get close to his height would be Horrortale Papyrus. And even then-
“ Harmony , come here.”
I glance back to Ink, whose eyelights are still red, but he’s starting to look worried. Turning to Error again, I CHECK him, making him flinch slightly.
‘I mean, he’ll probably glitch it out anyway-’

‘Nope, not on my watch.’
I slowly set Winky down on the floor, making sure that none of my movements are too sudden, before taking a small, careful, step toward Error. Dream gasps and I hear Ink growl a bit.
I ignore him.
Taking one more little step, I slowly lift up my arms. Error flinches back- likely expecting an attack- only to blink in confusion at my now frozen form.
I know that he probably has haptephobia, so I’m not going to force anything on him. But he really looks like he needs a hug.
I really want to give him a hug.
“What are you…”
I don’t move.
By now, I’m really starting to heat up, and my arms are getting tired. Error doesn’t quite seem to get what I’m trying to do, so I make little grabby hands- only feeling slightly childish.
Error seems to finally understand what I was silently asking, but instead of cringing away like I had expected, he takes a step closer. Everyone else seems to start panicking, but they didn't move, in fear of accidentally hitting me- or setting off Error with me so close to him, I don’t know.
Either way, I’m glad they don’t as Error leans down and does something that shocks me.
He picks me up. [u thought it was gonna be kissin h u h-]
‘Doesn't he have haptephobia what the hell-’
Heck yes he’s cold too.
Breathing out a sigh of relief (I didn’t realize I was so warm ) I lightly clutch onto Error’s scarf, carefully relaxing my body against him as he holds me like a child.
“WhAT’s yOur NaMe?”
The black-boned skeleton’s voice was soft, gentle- and although the glitching and static sounded a bit strange- it was pleasant.
“I’m… Harmony, but you can call me Minny.”
My words were quiet, careful- I didn’t want to accidentally trigger him.
“ThAt’s A NicE NaME.”
He lightly nuzzles the top of my skull, causing me to giggle.
‘This feels so OOC… does he think I’m a kid or something?’
I mean, it’s not that it’s not nice to be babied now and again but this would be kinda funny-
“Do YOu KnoW WhAT AU yoU’Re FrOm?”
At this I fall silent.
‘Hhhhhhh now I’m homesick dammit-‘
Can’t concentrate on that right now. Push the feelings down.
“I don’t… how about you CHECK me?”
Error looks a bit confused at my words, but seems to shrug it off and do as I ask.
I could feel the moment he read the bottom text, as he first tensed up-likely from the Creator part- before taking a sharp breath in.
“Do YOu… KnOw ABouT-“
I gently interrupt him.
“I know all of it.”
I feel DETERMINATION well up inside me.
“And I’m going to help.”
