I was just taking a walk through the snowy village when I saw someone sitting on the water's edge. Mettaton? I thought to myself, It couldn't be him though, he would never go near the water. He might fall in and, uh do whatever robots do when they get wet. I decided to go up to him, if he didn't know I would have to tell him! "Mettaton!" I started, but that's when I noticed something was a bit off. He didn't look like his normal, happy self. I could see sadness in his bright pink eyes as he turned to me. "Oh, hello, Papyrus." "Mettaton, are you okay?" "Yeah I'm fine..." He was lying. I knew him well enough. If he were fine he would've said something like, Oh, I'm fine, darling!~ And flirt with me or something, like he always does. He started to comb his hair with his hand, almost like he was, nervous. That's when I realized why. As he lifted his arm his sweater fell so you could easily see his wrist. "M-Mettaton, is that a cut?" He quickly covered his wrist and looked at me. "I-" he sighed, "I'm s-sorry, Papy, I just..." He started to tear up, "I understand if you don't want to be friends anymore or something, I just-" I hugged him, "I'm not going to leave you, especially when you're like... This." "Th-Thank you, Papy..." "Do you want to talk about it? You don't have to." "No, I probably should. It's just the monsters, they're great fans, they always support me and everything but... The humans... I'm not saying I dislike humans, we wouldn't even be on the surface if it weren't for a human. But they all seem to hate me, they'll call me things that weren't even words down there, just because of the way I dress or how much make-up I put on. They all just assume I'm some kind of... sex bot, or something. Oh and don't even get me started on how they treat people, sometimes even other humans, just because of their gender or sexuality." He sighed, "And if you're a monster and you're not straight and cis, it's even worse..." he blushed a little, "I'm not saying that I- um I mean... Maybe I should tell you..." "Tell me what?" "I'm, uh, I haven't told anyone this but I'm uh, not straight?" His face was red, "This is so awkward, I shouldn't have said that I'll just-" "No wait, Mettaton," "Y-yeah?" "I'm not straight either!" I'm not sure why, but I seemed to cheer him up a little by saying that. "Well, I guess if I told you that I might as well tell you, I um... Well you know how I used to be a ghost?" "Yeah? Why?" "W-well, when I was a ghost, I was female, Alphys and Blooky know but... I don't think I can tell any of the humans..." "Why not?" "I just... I don't want my career to fall apart just because I told someone a secret..." "O-oh..." "Hey, um, Papy? Why don't we go to your house?" "Sure! Why not?"
