It has been another few weeks since Nico and I have made up. My stress has gotten much better but keeping the animatronics in line, is rather tough, to be honest. Darwin no longer fidgets with staying in line anymore. Foxy and Daz, I swear they are like two kids... I understand they don't want to be cuffed anymore but jeez, get over it. I just want them to get better. Speaking of better, Mangle and I are better at getting along. She is actually pretty sweet once ya get to know her. And man, has it gotten hot! A little too hot now...
Right now, I am in my bathroom, getting ready for work. Tonight, I am wearing a pair of black parachute shorts with a rainbow colored, form fitting tank top. And I am wearing my hair up because it is far too warm to wear it down. I do need to cut my hair sometime. As I am fixing my eyeliner, a knock on my door startles me. I open the door and find my dad there.
"Hi dad." I smile softly.
"Hey hun, did you want something to eat?" John asks.
"Um, sure. I would like some stir fry, please." I answer. John nods and heads to the kitchen to make me some food. The good thing is, I have went back to my normal weight. I have a small bit of chub but I don't really mind it. I actually kind of like it. I look at myself in the mirror, satisfied with my current look. The brightness in my eyes is coming back! Once I finish up in the bathroom, I head to the kitchen where my dad is cooking. The smell makes my mouth water and my stomach snarl.
"That smells delicious." I sniff the air.
"It's almost done. Go ahead and get you something to drink and take a seat." John responds. I grab a glass and fetch some peach tea. I grab a seat and my dad places a bowl of stir fry in front of me. I lick my lips and dig in. Stir fry is delicious, especially how my dad makes it.
"It is so nice to see you eating again." John places his hand on my shoulder.
"It's nice to be somewhat happy and stress-free again." I swallow another bite.
"Gotta get you to work soon." He says. I nod and resume eating. As soon as I finish my food, all of it, I clean up and put a piece of minty gum in my mouth. I grab my feminine bag, which contains perfume and... other things, then I grab my phone, iPod and my dad has the keys ready. Once I am prepared, we head to work after locking up the house. Maddox is on John's lap as he drives. Jeez, it is super hot out tonight.
"Isn't it supposed to be cooler at night?" I ask.
"Yeah, but the humidity is high which makes it muggy out, sadly. So, it will seem hotter than normal." John answers.
"Ugh." I groan. John chuckles lightly at my disgruntled groan. I turn on the radio to find out that "Cool Kids" by Echosmith is playing, good song. Of course, I sing along with it. After a while, we arrive at Freddy's and I exit the car.
"Are you guys going to be here?" I ask.
"After a bit, I need to go pick up a few things at the store." John answers.
"Alright. Here is some money, pick me up some cookies for home. Lemon iced." I hand him some money.
"Don't worry about it." He denies the money. I place the money back in my pocket and stick my tongue out at him. He places Maddox down where I was sitting and gets out of the car quick. John walks over to me and hugs me tightly. I hug him tightly, curious to this. He's never gotten out and hugged me. I look up at him.
"Something going on...?" I wonder.
"No no... I love you, have fun." John responds.
"I love you, too." I answer. He kisses my forehead gently then climbs back into the car and takes off. I head inside and clock in, my goodness it is hot in here!! After I clock in, I head to my office. It is pretty damn hot in here. Once I reach my office, I plop down in my chair and open my laptop to begin monitoring the place. From what I am seeing, the animatronics are all calm, trying to stay cool. Bonnie, Bonbon and Springtrap are in the main room with Freddy and Bonbon is lying down on the stage. Bonnie and Springtrap are on the floor. Yeah, they must be very warm. I flip the camera to the pirates cove to find Daz and Foxy playing tug of war with the cuffs. Bones, Goomba and Jock are just there, watching them half-irritated.
"What the fuck are these things made of?!!" Foxy asks.
"I DON'T KNOW BUT YOUR HOOK KEEPS SCRATCHING ME AND IT IS SO FUCKING ANNOYING!!" Daz shouts. With a sigh, I switch the camera back to main room. I look up from my laptop to see a beautiful woman walking my way with Jeremy. She has gorgeous mousse brown hair that is in a neat ponytail, glasses that define her icy blue eyes, tan skin and she is wearing a white form fitting tank top with black booty shorts. Jeremy walks over by me and places his hand on my shoulder.
"And this is our best night guard. Krystal Winchester. Krystal, this is my girlfriend, Eris Simpson." Jeremy introduces us.
"Krystal, it is nice to finally meet you!" Eris says, extending her arm out. I place my hand in hers and shake it.
"It is nice to meet you, too." I blush at her beauty. My god she is beautiful.
"Jeremy has told me about you staying here, despite the rough patches you have been through." Eris mentions.
"Yeah, it has been a tough journey but I am here." I answer.
"You have a strong heart, and you are very beautiful." She complements me.
"O-Oh, thank you! So are you!" I smile. Eris returns the gesture.
"Alright Eris, we should go now. Krystal, we are heading to dinner. You, Mike and Isaac are in charge." Jeremy says.
"Oh, alright! Have fun you two!" I nod. They nod and walk off. I resume watching the area, but as I am, I hear crawling on the ceiling. I look up to see Mangle.
"Hi Mangle." I wave.
"Hi my best friend!" She exclaims and crawls down to me. I pet her softly and kiss her nose.
"How are you tonight?" I question.
"Eh, it is super hot in here." Mangle answers.
"I know. I was just about to go chill in the main room, wanna come?" I offer.
"No thank you, I will be on the ceilings." She responds. I smile and she starts to crawl on the ceiling again. I close my laptop and head to the main room. Once I am in the main room, I sit down on a chair and take off my shoes, placing them onto the table.
"So warm..." Bonbon groans and slides off the stage like a slug. I giggle and look at him.
"It is pretty warm in here tonight." I hear another voice. I look over to find Ryker there, looking sexy as fuck. He is wearing parachute shorts like mine and a gray wife beater. His hair is all... Spiked. I go crimson.
"V-Very hot. I-I mean the building!" I stammer and swallow hard. My throat is dry. Ryker smiles and sits down next to me.
"Very hot." He whispers. A subtle gasp escapes my throat.
"Ah... Anyway. Where is Nico?" I wonder.
"She is at home. She doesn't feel well, it is the morning sickness." Ryker answers.
"That answers my question..." I look at Bonnie, who is tired apparently. I grab my shoe and throw it at him, making him gasp and jump. Ryker and I giggle. Bonnie glares at me. Bonbon and Springtrap begin to laugh, which causes Ryker and I to laugh even more. Soon, Bonnie gives up all seriousness and begins to laugh. Ryker and I look at each other as we laugh. Our laughter dies down after a bit and Ryker's icy blue eyes are interlocked with my hazel eyes. My teeth latch onto my lower lip in a subtle manner. His right palm twitches a bit. My throat feels like cotton right now.
"I... I need to go get something to drink..." I get up, feeling slightly weak in the knees. I wander off to the break room to grab a bottle of Coke or something. I put the money in the machine and a bottle of Coke is dispensed. The door opens and I notice Ryker in here. He closes the door behind him and walks over to me, cornering me so my back is pressed against the cool glass on the vending machine. I gasp lightly. He cups my face in his hands gently and strokes my cheeks with his thumbs.
"I am very incapable of leaving you alone." Ryker whispers. My heart rate accelerates and my breathing has altered. As our eyes interlock once again on a never ending gaze, my knees tremble.
"R-Ryker, I don't know what to say..." I stammer nervously.
"You don't have to say anything, Ms. Winchester." He whispers, caressing my bottom lip with his thumb. Without hesitation, he leans down and kisses me passionately. A thick line of heat slaps across my cheeks, despite it being hot in the building to begin with, but I soon find myself kissing him back. Our lips move together in perfect harmony. Ryker pulls back slowly, leaving me breathless. At that moment, I realize I can't leave him alone either... I wrap my arms around his torso.
"I am incapable of staying away from you, too..." I admit.
"Then don't." Ryker murmurs.
"Then we need to hide it." I answer.
"I know. Your father and my daughter... Would not accept." He answers.
"No, they would not. Well, they aren't here... So, kiss me?" I smile and give him the innocent eyes. Ryker chuckles softly and kisses me quickly. I feel complete now.
"Ready to go back out to the main room, babe?" Ryker asks.
"Yes, but shouldn't you get something so it doesn't look suspicious?" I raise my eyebrow.
"That is a valid point. Want some gummy worms or something?" He wonders.
"Sure! I will take gummy worms." I answer. Ryker gets a Coke and some gummy worms for us. He opens the door for me then we head out to the main room again and take our seats.
"Took you guys quite a bit..." Bonnie mutters. A wave of nervousness surges through me.
"The vending machine was being stupid." Ryker lies, very smoothly. I pop a gummy worm into my mouth, chuckling softly. Ryker looks at me and winks. I smile widely and take a drink of my Coke, nice and cold!! Bonnie, Bonbon and Springtrap all stand up, stretching.
"You know I am gonna need your number so we can text." Ryker whispers.
"Yes. I will give it to you in my office." I answer quietly enough so they don't hear. I get up and head to my office, taking my gummy worms and Coke with me. Once I am in my office, I grab an index card, a pen then jot down my number for Ryker. Then Ryker shows up. I fold up the card and slip it to him.
"Ryker, the only thing that concerns me is us being alone. I am not sure when we will be able to show affection to each other." I whisper.
"We will deal with that, please don't worry too much." He says in a reassuring tone.
"Alright, I won't worry." I answer with a smile.
"Want me to stay in your office with you, keep you company?" Ryker asks.
"I'd like that." I answer, plopping down in my chair. He pulls up a chair beside me. I feel his index finger softly trace my arm.
"I can't wait to get further into our relationship." He whispers.
"I can't either." I smile and bite my lip.
"Krystal!!" I hear someone shout. Both of us jump and look at where it is coming from. I find Daz and Foxy marching in here, not looking too happy.
"Yeah...?" I swallow hard. Daz moves places his hands on my desk.
"Why can we NOT be freed yet?! This is some major bullshit!" Daz snaps.
"Because, you two need to get along!!" I snap, standing up and getting in his face.
"Don't get in my face..." He growls.
"Then don't snap at me." I grind my teeth. Ryker stands up and puts his arms on our chests.
"No fighting..." Ryker says.
"Sometimes, I wish you never got hired." Daz mutters. I gasp.
"C'mon lad..." Foxy tugs softly. Him and Daz walk off. I narrow my eyes and sit down. Ryker sits down close to me and puts his arm around me.
"Don't worry about what he said baby, okay? He is just very angry. We say and do things out of anger when we never mean it." Ryker whispers, holding my hand.
"I know... I'm sorry, love." I answer.
"No need to be." He replies.
Not very much has happened at work tonight, other than a relationship with Ryker now. And Bonbon sliding off the stage like a slug was pretty funny. But other than what happened with Daz, work has been pretty well. And right now, I am just wrapping up so I can go home. I have already clocked out and all that. I have also told my dad that I have a ride home from work, which is Ryker.
Ryker and I head outside once I am ready, and of course he opens the car door for me like a gentleman. I climb into his car and he closes the door gently. Then, he climbs into the drivers side, starts the car and we take off. As we are going to my house, he holds my hand as he drives.
"So beautiful." He kisses my hand.
"And you're so adorable." I stroke his thumb with mine.
"Good thing I have very dark tinted windows." Ryker mentions.
"Yes, so I can kiss you before I go inside." I am happy about that. He turns on some music and "Only Exception" by Paramore is playing. A smile creeps up on our faces and Ryker gives my hand a light squeeze. Soon, we arrive at my house.
"Thanks for taking me home, honey." I whisper, unbuckling.
"No problem, babe. If you want, I can take you to work and pick you up every day so we can have some time together." Ryker offers.
"I'd love that." I agree to it.
"Good, I love that. Now, go inside sweetie, get some rest." Ryker says. I nod and kiss him sweetly, then head inside. I am very happy now.
"How was work?" John asks.
"It was good, calm for the most part." I answer.
"That is good. I am gonna watch a movie with Maddox." He replies. I nod and head to my room. It feels good in my house, good thing I have the air conditioning on. I plop down on my bed and exhale softly as I smile...
