"Ow! Oh god, no! Fuck! Stop it-ouch! OW! Motherf-! Why?!"
I landed hard, a final grunt, a mixture of pain and frustration escaping my smashed lips. Damn roots. Damn mountain. Damn life. Damn every-fucking-thing.
I am an outcast from the world above. Yes, I'm a human. Yes, I went to Mount Ebott. Yes, I know that people almost never return from there. Your point is?
The only reason I came here is because I was dared to. The assholes from school, from work, from everywhere. They all dared me to. And they knew the consequences. So did I. But at this point, I would rather die by a fucking monster attack than be ridiculed by those assholes. As long as I don't have to hear any more of their shitty voices again, I'm totally good.
Fuck, no, I'm not okay.
Grunting again, I lifted my head. My whole face felt raw and puffy. My right eye wouldn't open. I don't know how I survived.
Coughing, I tasted my own blood. Damn it all. I tried to lift my head more and managed to see a pathway at the edge of the flowerbed I fell on.
I managed to lift myself up enough to start moving. Along the way, I hear a snap. My leg finally snapped.
"FUCK!" I shrieked. Tears were now flowing, like a waterfall, and I fell back on my face, the pain in my cheek throbbing consistantly. I couldn't focus my left eye anymore. I had lost too much blood and my crying wasn't making it any easier.
"...help." I whispered to the darkness. For a moment, I thought I heard a sound. Yes. It's a simple sound. I can guess what it is before it arrives. It is the soft patter of footsteps.
"Yo. Someone there?" A deep accented male voice called out.
I coughed twice, just to let them know where I am, and the pain increased. The footsteps stop.
"Oh, shit! Tori! Get over here! We gotta 'nother human! And they're in really bad shape!"
After a lot of panting and a gasp, a soft female voice cries out, "Oh my-! Sans, help me with her legs! Careful, that one is broken. We have to hurry! There isn't much time!"
"Gotcha." After that, I black out completely.
