You manage to sneak out after he passes out beside you, Skullface had you at least four more times that night and your body was overwhelmed from attention and orgasms. Both of those things were good, but too much too fast left you a panting, shaking, and sweaty mess with legs of jello. You barely managed to grab your clothes and fumble the door open, each movement was wobbly and reminiscent to a toddler taking their first steps. I'm gonna be a puddle of jizz and pussy juice before his heat is over.
The scent had lessened but it was still very potent in the air of his room. It beckoned you to stay and tempted you greatly with promises of what was to come. Still, it wasn't all controlling and couldn't force you to do anything it was more of a seductive and sweet heavy handed suggestion than anything. A suggestion whose powers of corruption were extraordinary to be sure, but a suggestion nonetheless.
You were lucky it was still the wee hours of the morning otherwise any one of the guys could have caught you are naked and heading to the bathroom. You felt the need to shower and get unsticky you head towards the bathroom and get in the shower. You let the lukewarm water wash away your sins of the previous night as you tried your best to stand still under the stream. Skullface had been more gentle and caring than someone may give him credit for but damn if so many rounds didn't reduce me to a mess. I wonder what others would say if they were able to peer into my life and judge me?
You begin to soap up and start to seriously reflect on the ramifications such an act would have. Would they be able to understand that I am capable of differentiating Skullface and my ex? Yeah he was a creep who couldn't respect personal boundaries, but Skullface willingly backed off even after his heat started, he also took me out into the forest to wing a romantic duet, Bel's idea of romance was a night of me sucking him off and wearing skimpy outfits. Hell, I'd do that for Skullface if he wanted because it would be more of a reward for being able to wait and be patient even in the heat, pardon the pun, of the moment Skull had found time to make it pleasurable for me. Did it seem to happen fast? Yeah maybe but given the circumstances you'd think people would forgive me. As a final nail in the coffin Alphys was waiting in the wings and I knew if I voiced non consent or showed signs of obvious distress, such as fighting against unwanted advances, that she'd send in someone capable of handling Skullface and getting me out. It also wasn't difficult to figure out that I felt responsible in some part for everything, hell, I was their caretaker yet I knew the bare minimum of what SOULs were or how they worked. How could I call myself somewhat competent after that? Still that wasn't the sole reason, the main reason was Skullface was going through something that was very uncomfortable and even painful when alone and I refused to let him suffer by himself. Was the scent intoxicating to a fault? Yes and no, again it was more or less a sweet seduction that helped me let go of inhibitions as well as made the experience itself just a little more pleasurable.
You feel the water begin to run cold indicating that you had been in here a while. You set the soap down and rinse off in a hurry. You even run the water through your hair because you knew some fluids had ended up there but you'd be damned if you spent a second longer than necessary in here. You got out and grabbed a towel from the shower rack next to the shower itself, it was far enough away to stay dry from stray water droplets.
You put on your clothes and head out of the bathroom. You felt somewhat lucky that your clothes held remnants of Skullface's scent and your core reignited from its influence. Still, you pressed forward having no intention of going back until you had at least eaten something. Your steps were more sure now as you made your way to the kitchen, but you were still a little sore from the previous nights encounters.
You decided you would go the lazy route this time and just grab some cereal, but as you rounded the edge of the stairs and went into the kitchen you were surprised to find Blueberry already making pancakes, with blueberries of course. He turned his head to face you and gave you a smile, but it was different than usual, this smile had an undertone of something you couldn't quite place, and his usual bright star eyelights were dimmer. If you had to describe him you'd say he looked tired.
For a moment your heart felt cold, Alphys had told you the room was soundproof, or was that Science? Whichever one would have no reason to lie about that so why was Blueberry tired? Could he have heard you?
“GOOD MORNING HUMAN ,” his emphasis on the word human made you cringe, it sounded like he was spitting it out like venom, “COME, COME, SIT THE MAGNIFICENT BLUEBERRY IS MAKING BREAKFAST! THERE IS MUCH WE MUST DISCUSS HUMAN AFTER ALL YOU DID PROMISE WE WOULD TALK, UNLESS THERE ARE OTHER THINGS YOU'D RATHER BE DOING?” As he finishes his sentence he looks to you, smile faltering and eye lights practically non-existent.
The way he was staring at you though, it made you more uneasy than the way he spat out human like it was a violent curse word. You honestly felt your sins crawling on your back as he continued to stare, you wonder if he could somehow see into your mind's eye. If you didn't know Blueberry personally you'd say being in the same room with him right now was hazardous to your health… but this was sweet little Berry right? Not a truly malicious bone in his body right…. Right?
You shook your head unable to trust your voice as his behavior and demeanor were frankly terrifying you. He somehow knew what you did last night even if he didn't hear anything, and you are willing to bet he feels upset by it. Am I really worth all this grief? You think to yourself as you take a seat and his smile returns as if nothing had happened.
“WOULD YOU LIKE SYRUP WITH YOUR PANCAKES HUMAN ?” His emphasis on human remained the same as he looked to you for an answer.
“Syrup would be nice, thank you Blueberry,” you respond.
Blueberry finishes the three he is working on before adding them to the plate which had about nine on it. He turns off the stove and grabs a bottle of syrup before grabbing the plate and setting both on the table. He then grabs two extra plates and sets one in front of you and one across from you before finally doing the same with a pair of forks. He places five pancakes on your plate and four on his. “Don't you want some syrup?” You ask him after pouring a fairly generous amount unto your pancakes.
“THE ONLY THING I WANT ON MY TONGUE BESIDES THESE PANCAKES IS CURRENTLY OCCUPIED, HOWEVER THANK YOU FOR THE OFFER HUMAN ,” you freeze up, did he really just hit on you like that? You untense and sit the bottle back down as Blueberry giggles sweetly, some normalcy finally returning to the situation. “TELL ME DOES SKULLFACE TREAT YOU LIKE YOU DESERVE PRINCESS? DOES HE SATISFY YOU? I KNOW I COULD IF YOU SO DESIRE MY SWEET, MY DOVE, MY DEAREST HEART.”
You gulp and start to sweat, these skeletons were going to kill you. “Listen Blueberry, Skullface is very sweet and he had a problem so I decided to help him out I'm very sorry I couldn't talk to you about your proposition first, but it all happened so fast.. I really do like you Blueberry and if you were in the same situation I'd help you too,” You respond determined.
Blueberry's eyes sparkle for a moment before he replies. “I SHALL REMEMBER THAT MY FAIR LADY, BUT FOR NOW THERE IS THE MATTER OF MY PROPOSITION. SINCE MY PRINCESS HAS ACTED IN SUCH IN UNDIGNIFIED MANNER I FEEL IT ONLY FAIR THAT I ASK A BOON,” Blueberry takes a bite of his pancakes as he awaits you response.
You did feel bad that you had sex with someone and basically ditched him, “Okay, I can deal with that. What is it you want?”
Blueberry's eyes sparkle again as he giggles giddily, “FIRSTLY, I WOULD VERY MUCH LIKE IT IF YOU WOULD CALL ME YOUR KNIGHT, EVEN IF ONLY WHEN WE'RE ALONE FOR NOW,” you nod your head as he pauses briefly for your response and his smile widens. “AND LASTLY, I WANT TO TAKE YOU OUT ON A DATE. DO NOT WORRY IT WON'T BE ANYTIME THIS WEEK, AS I AM WELL AWARE YOU WILL BE PREOCCUPIED FOR A WHILE YET, AND THAT AFTERWARD YOU'LL NEED TO REST AND RECOVER. THIS IS MORE OF A PLAN FOR THE FUTURE, I WILL WORRY ABOUT ALL THE DETAILS YOU JUST KEEP YOUR SCHEDULE OPEN.”
You could do that not like you ever had any plans anyway you just kind of went with the flow. “Alright then, Bl- er my knight, I will grant your request,” you looked down at your pancakes feeling heat rise up in your cheeks, is he into role play or does he just like making me blush and fumble my words?
Blueberry has his own blue blush, but his eye lights momentarily shift to hearts as he looks at your flushed face. He was upset that Skullface had gotten your purity first, but that only made him more determined to make your time with him even more special when it was finally his turn. He watched as you took a bite of your pancakes and brightened up, he had added in some of his healing magic to the batter because he knew you would most likely need a little after last night. His smile fell as he saw the bite mark near your neck, it hadn't been obvious until you moved and your sweater moved as well to reveal the evidence of your tryst with Skullface.
Blueberry's breath hitched as his SOUL cried out in pain, no no NO! Blueberry knew you were only trying to help the other, but damn did it HURT , was he even gentle with you? Had he just ravaged your perfect body for the sake of convenience? Blueberry knew it wouldn't be the first time the other had done so, he had said as much himself when the topic of heats arose while you were out shopping. He had said that he would call a mistress of the night, his actual words were whore, before it started and pay them to sleep with him because it was easy and convenient. He then went on to say he had done it for one of his heats before he came here. How could he talk about intimate relations in such a manner? Doing it with someone not because you cared about them but because it was convenient?
As Blueberry sat in silence and watched you eat he wonders if this was another case of ‘it was simple and easy so I did it’, he felt his SOUL contort in disgust and anger at the thought. You weren't some wanton mistress of the night, you were a treasure, a princess, something valuable beyond measure that deserved to be treated with the utmost reverence and care. If he found out the other had used you it wasn't going to end well.
“My knight? Is something the matter?” You had noticed a few seconds ago that he was staring at you, but his smile had started to fade and you became worried.
Blueberry blinked a bit before responding,he was capable of blinking as his bones weren't completely rigid like actual bone, but that was a story for another time right now he had to respond to his darling princess. “O-OH SORRY MY MIND WANDERED INTO SOME UNPLEASANT THOUGHTS… ANYWAY PRINCESS HOW ARE YOUR PANCAKES? I ADDED SOME HEALING MAGIC TO THEM JUST IN CASE, I WASN'T SURE HOW LAST NIGHT WENT,” his voice lowered to a calmer and less boisterous tone before continuing. “And I won't pry, but know that you don't owe him anything even if you triggered his heat early. I know Alphys and Science are already watching out for you, but what kind of knight would I be if I didn't offer my services as well. The least I can do is heal you and offer solace if you wish to continue on this quest of yours. I won't say that I can understand your entire reasoning, but I do trust your judgement, just don't ask me to trust him. I know very little about him and what I do know is his capacity to harm others, so while I give this situation the benefit of the doubt right now…. I wouldn't be able to control myself if I found out he hurt or used you. I just want you to be aware that I care about you deeply and if you need me I will be there no matter when, no matter where.”
You had stopped eating the moment his voice got softer. He cared for you that much? He had put healing magic in the pancakes, which explained why the soreness and stiffness of last night's activities had begun to melt away the moment you began eating them. He was also concerned about what was going on but he trusted you enough to be able to deal with it, he was just telling you that he was there for you no matter what and that made you feel warm in your chest. “Oh Blueberry, thank you for taking the time to do this for me so early in the morning. I'm not going to ask you to trust Skullface, but let me alleviate some of your fears by saying he isn't that bad, a little rough and somewhat impatient, but nothing forceful. He -” You're cut off by a forceful kiss, Blueberry had gotten up and was approaching you since you had started talking his eye lights aflame, now he was passionately kissing you as his hands explored your clothed body.
When he pulled back your lips were still buzzing with magic and he looked ready to pounce on you again but refrained from doing so as he brought a hand up to your flushed cheek. “Princess, please stop talking about him. I understand you're trying to comfort and reassure me, but it hurts . My SOUL is crying out in pain but I know you need to make your own decisions, and besides that I know that when my turn comes I will make you feel so treasured and adored, like the precious princess you are. When that time comes I aim on being the best since I regretfully can't be your first, still I don't mind you being adventurous until then, just please, please don't talk about it so openly,” his voice was pained and pleading as his hand shook against your cheek and tears began to pool in his sockets. “I don't think I can bear it.”
Your breath stopped in your chest, how could you torture this poor, sweet skeleton so? Granted you hadn't meant to, he said as much himself, but regardless of intentions you did in fact hurt him. He loved you so much the thought of you joining bodies with another hurt his SOUL, your mind wanders back to when Bel kicked you out, it'd hurt so much back then to think of him spending his nights with Decymber, it felt as if you weren't good enough, as if she was better than you, as if you never mattered to begin with. Was this how Blueberry was feeling? The situation was vastly different, but the feelings brought about might not be.
You reached out and wrapped your hands around Blueberry to pull him into an embrace. He began crying softly, almost silently, as his skull nuzzled in between your breasts for more comfort and warmth. “Shhh, it's okay, my knight. I'm sorry for making you doubt your worth to me. Let me promise you that you are just as important as anyone in this house, maybe even more so since you were the first to befriend me,” you gently stroke the top of his skull as his crying slows.
Blueberry looks up and sniffles a few fat tears still in his sockets and the evidence of others still on his cheeks. “Yeah, I did do that first didn't I?”
You nod and gently kiss the top of his head. “You're also my bestest friend, and my noble knight,” you state proudly. “Nobody else could ever replace you, and I wouldn’t let them try.”
Blueberry mweh heh heh’d before pulling back and smiling brightly. “OUR DATE WILL BE WORTHY OF SUCH A KIND-HEARTED MAIDEN, THANK YOU FOR COMFORTING ME DOVE. NOW LET’S FINISH BREAKFAST I’M SURE YOU’RE PRESENCE IS SORELY MISSED, AND I’D BE A POOR GENTLEMEN, LET ALONE KNIGHT IF I DIDN’T MAKE SURE YOU ATE EVERY BITE OF YOUR PANCAKES TO KEEP YOUR STRENGTH UP. THOUGH I WILL ADMIT I DO ENVY HIM, WE WILL HAVE OUR TIME AND FOR SOMETHING AS GRAND AND BEAUTIFUL AS YOU I’D WAIT A THOUSAND YEARS,” he gently kissed you again before going back to his seat.
The two of you ate the rest of the pancakes in silence occasionally you would look up to find him staring at you with a blush on his cheeks and you would turn your gaze back down to your remaining bites of pancake. Blueberry loved watching you eat his food and enjoy it so thoroughly, if he were being honest with himself he’d like to fill you with tons of delicious food just to watch as you slowly chewed and savored it as if it were the best thing you’d ever tasted. He, of course, already thought of your form as perfect but if you got even plushier? He wouldn’t complain, same for if you got skinny he just enjoyed you for you, whatever form you took on you would always remain perfect and beautiful in his eyes.
As you finished the pancakes you licked the sticky syrup from your lips, your tongue running gently over the top and bottom leaving behind a faint sheen of saliva, you weren’t drooling like a dog but your salivary glands were working as you had been eating and so you left some behind. Blueberry felt his armor grow tighter around his crotch as his genitalia unwillingly sparked to life from the arousal of your wet, pink tongue sliding over your soft, pillowy lips.. Stars what you do to me my gorgeous princess, even when your eyes meet mine I’m out of my mind, I’m out of control, full of feelings I can’t define.
“Thank you for the pancakes, my knight. I’ll try and sneak out same time tomorrow. I’m going to grab a few bottles of water from the fridge and head on back up,” You head to the sink and put the dishes in before going to the fridge and nudging containers of taco meat and fixings out of the way to grab the water behind it.
You assumed from the left-overs that Blueberry had made dinner last night, you also assumed from a few Grillby’s bags that most of the others had gotten take out. You snatch a bag of Grillby’s and tell Blueberry you are confiscating the contraband before looking inside said bag, what looked like a burger wrapped in tinfoil and a box of fries covered in ketchup, like ketchup was leaking out of the container and coagulating in the bottom of the bag covered, you shrug you could deal with overly condimented fries. You grab an armful of water bottles before closing the door of the fridge. So you had lunch/ dinner and around five water bottles that along with the healing magic from the pancakes should help you make it through today.
Blueberry was silent as he lead you up the stairs, he hugged you tightly before heading back down to start breakfast for the others. His SOUL wrenched in his chest as he heard the door to Skullface’s room open and shut with a soft click . He promised to himself that he would try and control his unfounded jealousy and instead focus on planning for the date that would woo you into his arms.
