ASK TO TW
Tommy sits in what was once someone’s bedroom. There are still remnants of the old owner - a woollen, yellow jumper rests in a cupboard, a few greyed posters slowly peel themselves off the wall. There a pencil lines on the door frame with dates besides them, something Tommy had seen in Purpled’s house but never understood, and there are some toys in another room - clearly abandoned in a rush, the people in this house weren’t warned of Dream’s last expansion.
No one ventures to these streets anymore, threats of expansion looms over this suburb. Tommy wonders, with slight apprehension, where these people live now. He doesn’t care, he will repeat that til the day he dies, but he does worry. If they’re well off enough to live in the suburbs, how would they survive in the slums?
The sun slowly sets on the third day of Tommy’s escape. He doesn’t know exactly how he’s going to get home, or how he’s even going to cope with seeing Tubbo and Ranboo - if his home is even with them, now.
“Hello?” A voice calls from outside. Tommy freezes, his wings flaring up behind himself. “Fundy, are you in here?”
They aren’t looking for him.
“Yeah, I’m here.” A voice, recognisable to Tommy, though he can’t remember where from, sounds below him, and dread settles itself into Tommy’s chest. “I think he’s asleep upstairs, don’t you dare scare him, Eret.”
Eret. Eret, the leader of the heroes. Eret, the most powerful member of the heroes. The person who could tear Tommy apart in an instant, and wouldn’t regret it for a second either. He’s fucked.
“I won’t let him scare Tommy, don’t worry.” A muffled voice says, and twin pairs of footsteps come up the stairs. Tommy freezes, childishly hiding himself under some blankets, as though that would save him.
Who ratted him out, who even knew he was here?
“Hey Tommy.” A woman - familiar in a safe way - says softly. “Eret and I won’t hurt you, Schlatt gave us special permission to enter Manburg to ask you some questions.”
Tommy pulls the ocean blue blanket down, so only his eyes appear. The woman has pink hair, tucked behind her ears. She has pink scales and fish like ears as well, and a kind smile to match. He’s seen her on dates with Puffy, and though Tommy can’t remember all that well, he knows that she had helped take down the SBI.
“Promise?” Tommy asks, his voice barely above a whisper.
“I promise.” She smiles. “My name is Niki, and Eret is in the door way. We just want to know what you want to do after this.”
And isn’t that the million dollar question. If it isn’t the question that rattles around in his brain and hurts to think about. He doesn’t know. He can’t know. He desperately wants to know but doesn’t and-
“I want to see Mama Puf, if that’s alright?” Tommy asks, and Niki (impossibly) lights up even more.
“She’d love to see you. Would you like her to come pick you up?”
“Yes” Tommy’s desperation leaks into his voice, but he doesn’t care. “Please miss Niki. Mx Eret.”
“Don’t call me ‘Mx Eret’, you might as well hand me off to the nursing home.” Eret jokes. “I’ll go call her.”
Fundy nervously paces the living room of the house, waiting for Puffy to arrive. He can’t help but feel responsible for the kid, after spending so much time protecting the boy.
Tommy stares at the door, a blue blanket around his shoulders. Eret stands in what was once a homely kitchen, and Niki leans on a table in the entrance, looking at her phone.
“So you were the fox, weren’t you?” Tommy breaks the silence, his eyes a thousand miles away.
“I am.” Fundy swallows. “I’m sorry for not telling you-”
“I’ll forgive you if you let me call you a furry.” Tommy declares, looking at Fundy with an expression that the fox hybrid can’t read.
“What? No.” Fundy protests incredulously. “I’d rather you hate me.”
“Then I guess I have to hate you big man.” Tommy cracks a smile, and Fundy’s ears twitch. “I mean you did tell me to.”
“Oh come on.” Fundy rolls his eyes, smiling. “Can’t you forgive me without calling me a furry.”
“No can do fox-boy.” Tommy says, and Eret laughs loudly over in the kitchen, her laughter boucing off the walls and echoing through the abandoned house. “You have backed me into a corner.”
“If you weren’t so injured, this pillow would be in your face right now.” Fundy rolls his eyes, and Niki coughs from where she is sitting, a fond smile on her face.
“As much as I would hate to interupt this sibling bonding session-” Tommy and Fundy both protest at her words, which only serves to make Eret laugh harder. “-Puffy is here. She said she’d wait outside for when you’re ready, Tommy.”
Tommy blinks, surprised, and stands on shaking legs. His wings flit and twitch, nervousness rolling off him in waves. Eret enters the room, and places a hand on Tommy’s shoulder.
“She would never hate you.” Eret says, and Fundy wonders why he would reassure the teen of that clear fact. “It has been an honour spending this time with you. I hope your future patrols are less dangerous than the last one was.”
Tommy’s eyes widen, minutely, and Fundy looks to Niki in confusion. Her face is just as confused as his, but it was clearly what Tommy needed to hear, given the wide hug that he wraps Eret in. Tommy soon gives Niki a hug, before standing in front of Fundy. Tommy wraps his arms around the fox hybrid.
If a “thank you” is mumbled into Fundy’s chest, and the hybrid’s jacket has tear stains on it, well, then that’s for Fundy to know.
