I hated waking up in the morning on a good day, but when Undyne rattled me awake at gods know when, I felt as though Death Herself warmed over.
“Nnnnnnnnnn,” I complained, rolling away from her.
“Do you wanna stay in the same rut as your family?”
I sighed. “I don’t have a family, Undyne.”
“Exactly. So get up.”
I yawned and forced myself to sit up, the light streaming in from the windows making the pounding in my skull even worse, as though a smaller me lived inside of it, taking an axe to my temples.
“Here.” Undyne thrust a fish-shaped mug of…something…in my face.
I gave it a test sniff. I wasn’t a picky eater, but my entire essence recoiled at whatever gods-awful smell that was. It bubbled and frothed a strange shade of violet, but as the sun moved behind the clouds, the colors changed to a calmer blue.
“It’s liquid magic. It’ll help your hangover.”
I quirked an eyebrow, even though she probably couldn’t see it beneath my hair. “You’re trying to kill me.”
“I would have already. Drink that.” She leaned forward and gave me a sniff. “Yeesh. Take a shower, too. You smell like Jack and regret.”
