You concentrate on enduring the cold. The cold comfort fills you with Determination!
You pull out your phone after a quick peek to find it; you swear it switches pockets sometimes. You dial 2 for Satori.
Whoever came up with the idea of counting up is a wonderful person.
You have to wonder if it was 1, though.
You hear only a small portion of the first ring before it gets picked up. "I see you've taken the advice, little one."
Her words give you pause. Then you realize her power to read minds must have a tremendous range.
Or maybe she's right behind you!
"Indeed, my range is quite far. Although, Flowey has described it to have a latency issue the farther one is away." After a short pause, she adds. "I believe my words alone are proof enough that I am not near. Still, phones are better for talking to me, I find." As you open your mouth, she cuts you off. "I will point out that admitting to killing others, mind you, is a poor choice; it will only harm relations with others." Again she cuts you off. "Now, as for how to reach me, you will want to take a right at the next turn. If you find yourself hungry, you may go right, but make sure you don't spoil your dinner; I'm baking a pie." As you're about to say your thanks, she adds. "I'm very proud of you, however, little one. Few are brave enough to admit they killed someone. I shall see you soon, alright? Goodbye."
...She hung up. Well, hopefully she lets you get a word in edgewise later, as she wasn't doing that before.
As you sigh, getting ready to hit 1, your phone rings.
You snort, answering, "Hello?"
"My apologies, little one; I didn't mean to cut you off so many times. I'm not very good with ranged communication, you see, as I use mental cues to decide when to speak."
You smile at her apology. "Thanks, Satori."
"See you soon."
"Bye." You were temped to call her mom, but resist.
After she hangs up, you dial Flowey's number.
The phone rings eight times.
...Is she not answering.
"Why does your v-"
"-, this is Flowey. I'm probably busy right now, so please leave your number and I'll get back to you. Worst case, another invasive push is happening"
...Well, then. "Hey, uhh... Hey, Flowey. I just wanted to call to say I wanted to tell you that I killed someone." ...This is the most awkward message you've ever left. "A-anyways, maybe you can poke me later or something." ...That sounds worse! "I mean with your big thorn!" Wait, wait! "I want you to penetrate me!" Wait, crap! "I mean, I want you-" The phone beeps.
Dammit. You really suck with answering machines.
Putting away your phone, you pull open the doors, heading in.
...Why is creepy music playing..."
Why does the hall seem to go on forever?"
Head down ominous hall.
I realized a much better way to do the health system, so I've tweaked it a bit. Instead of max DT every time, which is usually not very helpful, you'll get max DT only if your DT is full. There was one other change, but that has no explanation that you shall be getting any time soon. Due to this, I'll be both increasing damage, while also making DT harder to regain in other ways I had planned.
Normally I don't do this, but the music makes the vote/scene. https://youtu.be/OSPbX0lkTmQ?list=PLpJl5XaLHtLX-pDk4kctGxtF4nq6BIyjg
