Chapter 1: Eriidan...?
Sollux stood in front of a certain hive on the beach owned by a certain seadwelling Aquarius and contemplated if he should go through and knock on the door.
Reaching for the wood he stopped and thought to himself.
What am ii doing here agaiin?
A flashback to earlier that night popped into his head. It was right after he and Eridan had gotten into a fight when Sollux wasn't particularly in a good mood.
Eridan had decided to take a stroll along the beach early in the night to clear his head. He had gotten a new wand after the game had ended, but today it was acting up for some reason. He tried fixing it but took a break and shoved it in his back pocket.
As he continued down the shore he came across Feferi and Sollux playing in the water... well, Feferi was. Sollux was more avoiding the splashes that Feferi was sending him. She was laughing and teasing Sollux, and he was some what enjoying himself as well.
Eridan stopped and smiled at the light-hearted look Feferi had, but frowned when he saw the person who was making her have that expression. Taking in a deep breath and sighing rather loudly, he tucked his hands into his pockets and kicked up some sand. Starting to walk away he turned to take one last glance at Feferi, but meet a pair of blue and red lenses.
Suddenly his plaid blue and black scarf tighten uncomfortably around his neck. He started tugging on the scarf but couldn't get it unraveled It tightened until he couldn't breathe anymore. I low laugh was heard from Sollux but then Feferi started yelling.
The scarf loosened again and left Eridan leaned over, hacking. Regaining his composure he whipped his head towards Sollux who was being occupied by an enraged Feferi. She was scolding him about his actions, but before she had time to go and apologize to Eridan, he was already gone.
Realizing that he wouldn't stand a chance against Sollux with a broken wand, he fled. Feferi glared at Sollux and spoke in a commanding voice.
"Sollux. I want you to go apologize to -Eridan RIG)(T NOW. )(e wasn't doing anyfin! )(e was just taking a night-time stroll! I won't talk to you until you fis)( t)(is. So you betta go rig)(t glubbing now, mister!"
"NO BUT'S SOLLUX. GO."
Sollux shrunk down at the demanding tone Feferi had gained from years of empress training. Huffing, she dove into the water and swam under until Sollux could not see her anymore. He quickly scurried away to go look for the hipster seadweller.
Sollux was snapped out of his thoughts when his hand had hit the door in front of him.
"Oh yeah. That'2 why II'm here."
Tapping his knuckles against the dark brown door he waited for a response. After a few seconds he started to get annoyed and started banging on it.
"Hey fii2hface! Open the door! II know your iin there!"
A faint female voice was heard from the other side of the door, "Oh cod!"
"One sec-" a light cough and the voice altered to a lower pitch," One second!"
The door opened only wide enough for Sollux to hear the voice more properly.
"Wwhat do you wwant Sol. Didn't havve enough fun earlier or just wwanted to fuck me up evven more."
Sollux's face twisted into a look of guilt, "Yeah... about that. II'm really 2orry. II really wa2n't iin the be2t mood thii2 niight 2o II kinda took iit out on you. That'2 why FF took me to the beach iin hope2 two cheer me up. Really, II am 2orry."
"Yeah, okay Sol. If that's all then bye. I havve many other things to wworry about besides you," The door started to close but Sollux caught it with his foot.
"P22hh. Liike you have 2omething two worry about. II bet thii2 wa2 the hiighliight of your night ii2n't iit. IIt'2 not liike you have a potentiial mate2priite or 2omethiing," Sollux started to laugh and Eridan went silent.
"Go2h. Have you even made an attempt two wiin anyone over fully be2iide2 FF? IIt'2 hopele22 ED. 2he'2 miine and you know iit."
"Sol, just stop talkin'..." Eridan's voice wavered.
"Oh, are you jealou2 or 2omethiing ED? You have two move on already! You don't have a chance anymore. Giive up! The Priince of Hope ha2 no hope left!"
The door flung open to reveal a girl with shoulder length hair and clothes that were way to big for her. An Aquarius shirt dangled loosely around her neck, falling off her shoulder. A plaid scarf adorned her throat and lightning shaped horns stuck out the top of her head. Tears were starting to form in her purple colored eyes. She shoved Sollux away from the door while furiously screaming at him, her voice cracking as tears started to run down her face.
"I'M OVVER IT SOL! I'M OVVER IT, OKAY! JUST LEAVVE ME ALONE! I DON'T WWANT TO HEAR YOUR TAUNTIN' ANYMORE! I ALREADY KNOWW THAT FEF WWILL NEVVER LOVVE ME ANYMORE! I'M NOT THE ONE SHE CHOSE, BUT IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT IT DOESN'T HURT TO SEE YOU AND HER TOGETHER SO HAPPY!" She looked up at Sollux's face, tears still flowing.
"It still hurts Sol..." Sollux was left speechless as he stared down at the girl.
Turning away from him, she took off her glasses and vigorously scrubbed the tears from her eyes. She looked back one last time at Sollux and walked back into the hive. Shutting the door softly behind her, Sollux was left to stare at it. He stayed there for what seemed like hours until he decided to walk away. Question after question popped into his mind and he couldn't think straight. Trotting back to his hive though he realized one thought that kept appearing.
AU: This is placed a few years after the game and everything. They are living on a planet quite similar both to Earth and Alternia except for little things like animals and vegetation. They live with the humans as well. The world they live in has dead trolls and humans, a few of them actually. That includes guardians and ancestors. They were able to create homes with the extra grists left over after the game or by living in the city.
If I forget to add anything then I'll put it in the next chapter :3
Thanks for reading! Please Review, I'd love to see the thoughts of this story!
