The girliest boy in school thinks he deserves to be bullied by his classmates and mistreated by his teachers.
It isn't until Papyrus Font sticks up for him that he realizes he doesn't need to change.
There might be someone out there who loves him for who he is.

*Note: I'm aware that in the underswap AU MTT is a ghost and Blooky is a robot but since they're both humans in this story I'm keeping their original names*


9. Reality

Mettaton follows Papyrus inside, smiling.

Everything feels fine, he's forgotten all of his troubles.

And then he sees his phone sitting on the couch. With what seems to be a ton of unread messages. Considering the fact that his only friend is standing next to him, his parents are probably mad. He feels his heart rate picking up.

"Are you okay?" Papyrus asks. It must be obvious that Mettaton is panicking.

"I'm fine," he says, mostly saying it to reassure himself, "I just have to call my mom."

"Uh, okay."

He dials her number and stands up when she answers, he always paces when he's on the phone, it's a habit.

"Hello? Honey, are you okay?" his mother answers.

"Yeah, yeah, I'm fine."

"Where are you? Your detention should be over by now."

He looks at the clock on the microwave. It's nearly five. How long were they out?

"I-I'm, um," he quickly tries to think of someone his mom knows, she wouldn't be happy with him being here. "I'm at Aaron's house," Aaron is a sweet boy who likes to sing, he used to be friends with Mettaton and Napstablook when they were kids but when his sister died his parents decided to move. They didn't move too far away but far enough that two little kids wouldn't be able to walk to his house.

"Oh, alright, that's fine, I-" she hesitates, "I'm in a little bit of a rush but do you think you could stay there? I won't be home tonight?"

"I, um, I don't know. Will dad be home?"

She hesitates again. "No."

She's lying. Mettaton doesn't know exactly why but for some reason she doesn't want him home alone with his dad.

"Does Blooky have a place to stay?"

"Yes, he'll be fine. Text me if you have any problems."

"Okay, love you."

"Love you, too."

He hangs up and sits back down on the couch.

"Can I stay here tonight?" he asks.

"Yeah, sure. What's going on?"

"I don't know," he says pulling his knees up to his chin and leaning his head on them, "I mean I do but I don't want to talk about it."

Papyrus nods. "Are you gonna be okay? Do you want some hot chocolate?"

He smiles slightly, "I'll be fine and yeah."

Papyrus gets up to get the hot chocolate.

Mettaton doesn't quite know what to think but he's glad he's with someone who cares.
