It is now Halloween and I am getting ready for work, wearing my costume and all. I did my make up nice and dark. My hair is in a weird bun and some hair parted to the right in front of my eyes. I look at myself in the mirror. Damn, I look hot as fuck for once. I did have fish net leggings with it but they catch onto the cuts on my thighs and I hate that feeling.
"Wow, you look great..." I turn to see Maddox at the doorway. He is wearing the tuxedo I had bought him.
"Thank you. You look amazing. Very handsome, handsome enough to be my date." I wink at him.
"Heh, yeah. I thought you were going to wear leggings with that. The dress is a bit short." Maddox points to my legs.
"Um, I don't like how they feel catching onto my cuts. It actually annoys me." I murmur.
"Ah, I see why. Sorry to hear that." Maddox sighs. I walk over to him and kneel down to him.
"Its fine, love. I did it to myself." I shrug. He has both hands in his pocket.
"So... I got you a new ring while I was away with Nico..." Maddox looks down at his feet.
"Is that so?" I ask.
"Mmhm." He nods and pulls out a rose-gold ring with a small diamond in the center.
"Maddox... Its beautiful!! What is it for?" I wonder.
"This is me promising to be by your side no matter what. I promise I will always be by you. You are my best friend. I promise to never leave your side ever again, even if things become bad. I learned how much you mean to me." Maddox explains.
"Awe, Maddox. I'm glad you won't leave me again." I smile. He grabs my hand and puts the beautiful ring on my left ring finger. He smiles at me and I hug him softly.
"You mean the world to me." Maddox whispers.
"You mean the world to me, too." I murmur. We release our hug and I fix my boots and the dress.
"Ready to head to work?" He asks.
"I sure am." I respond. We head out, grabbing my phone, wallet and keys. I halt by my keys, finding a golden rose on the counter, sparkling. I pick it up and turn to Maddox. It is real...
"What is this for?" I ask.
"Just for you. I love you." Maddox answers.
"I love you, too Maddox." I respond. I smile and place it in some water. Then we leave, me carrying Maddox in my arms. We listen to some music on the way to Freddy's. I decide on some Linkin Park... Hmm, "Breaking the Habit" will work. Mostly due to me trying to break my habit of cutting. Before I actually go too far and kill myself. Someday I may eventually go that far and end my life, but not anytime soon. Maddox needs me around. And I need him.
Finally, we arrive at Freddy's and I hold hands with him as we walk inside. After all, he is my "date". My little Halloween date to work. Mike's head pops up and his eyes flicker to me.
"Krystal?" Mike asks.
"Yep, its me." I wave. He walks over to us.
"You look so..." He doesn't even continue.
"Different? Its a Halloween costume and he is my date." I look down at Maddox and smile. Maddox smiles back at me.
"Well, it looks great. You guys both look great. I'm just myself for Halloween, I am pretty sure that is scary enough." Mike laughs.
"Ha, yeah you can be pretty scary." I giggle.
"Yeah... Eh, oh well." Mike shrugs with a smile.
"Mike you're something else." I smile.
"So are you, Winchester, so are you." He winks and kisses my cheek then walks away. I smile and begin walking to my office. I notice Freddy, BonBon, Bonnie and Murdock staring at me. I stop and look at them, their jaws dropped.
"May I help you?" I ask.
"U-Uh... You're just... Looking beautiful..." Freddy blushes. Bonnie covers his private area and walks away. I blush.
"Thank you." I smile.
"Hallowee darlin'?" BonBon asks.
"Yep. Just wanted to something different." I answer.
"Well it sure is interesting." BonBon smiles and walks over to me. He feels the lace tutu part of the dress.
"Thanks." I reply.
"Mmmhm." He winks at me and heads back to the stage. I narrow my eyes and begin walking to my office with Maddox.
"They are all over you. You should show everyone else your costume!" Maddox exclaims. I nod in agreement and we begin walking around Freddy's. I head to the kitchen to show Goosey, Chica and Kenny our costumes.
"Chica! Goosey! Kenny!" I call out. They turn to me and Kenny blushes.
"Woah, your costume is awesome!!!" Chica exclaims, running over to me. I notice she looks different, curvy, wearing pink booty shorts and the bib says "Let's Party!" instead of "Let's Eat!". She looks... Amazing... I blush a bit.
"Chica... You look... Amazing..." I eye her out.
"Oh thanks!! You look amazing, too hun!!" She smiles.
"T-Thanks." I stammer nervously. She blushes a bit and hugs me.
"I'm glad I got an upgrade. I feel beautiful." Chica murmurs.
"Oh Chica, you were beautiful before." I look at her and smile.
"Oh thank you." She blushes a bit further.
"I am just speaking truth." I answer. She releases me and I look over at Kenny who is still blushing. I giggle and Goosey carries a laundry basket full of laundry to the back room then returns in here.
"I'll do the laundry later. Krystal, darling... You are a fine young woman, but isn't that outfit a bit... Skimpy?" Goosey asks.
"She wears worse to bed..." Maddox murmurs. I look at him and blush.
"Besides, it is Halloween and I wanted to do something different than what I normally do. Normally I went as a vampire or something else. Last year I went as an Assassin with my friend." I reply.
"Oh yeah, I forgot it was Halloween. Carry on." Goosey smiles. I smile and carry on through the pizzeria with my "date".
"Maddox, please don't tell people how I dress when I go to bed. They will begin to think we had sex." I plead.
"Heh, yeah that was bad on my part. I am sorry." Maddox apologizes. I nod and we head to my office to monitor the place. Maddox is on my lap again. I grab the tablet and begin monitoring the place. Nico is in the junction with fixed Darwin, being his guide. He has new eyes, they are a beautiful green. He just can't see yet. His eyes have to adjust. Dolly is in the corner, sound asleep. Probably from running around all day. I lift Maddox and decide to head to the junction. I hear someone whistle at me as I walk, I blush. I enter the junction and Nico looks at me. Her jaw drops and she blushes a bit.
"Who is there?" Darwn asks.
"It is just Krystal, buddy." Nico answers. I walk over to them.
"Hi Darwin." I whisper.
"Hi Krystal." He responds. I reach up and grab his hand. He gently squeezes my hand.
"You look wonderful, Krystal." Nico whispers, looking at me.
"Thanks Nico." I smile lightly.
"But... I must ask... What is with the cuts?" Nico asks.
"Um... Self harm." I admit.
"Why would you do that?" She wonders.
"If you have been through everything I have, you would understand. And you know, when you took Maddox away from me, that killed me." I explain.
"I-I'm sorry. Now you have him back, please don't hate me." Nico murmurs, narrowing her beautiful blue eyes.
"Hate you? I don't hate you. But I wish you would have communicated with me more, you know... Instead of making me feel like you are a threat to me and my loved ones..." I murmur.
"I am really sorry. I didn't mean to come off that way. Can we just forget the past? I want to start fresh with you." Nico asks. I place Maddox down and hug her.
"Yeah we can." I whisper in the hug.
"Oh thank god." She sighs in relief. I smile and hug her a bit harder. She hugs me a bit harder.
"Happy?" I wonder.
"Yes very. You are a very beautiful girl and you are so sweet to these animatronics. Mike hired a keeper. I have never seen anyone love these animatronics as much as you do, Krystal." Nico explains.
"I am pansexual, I am happy with anything really. I don't have a gender or species preference. If I love you, I love you, simple as that." I admit.
"Really? That is neat!" She smiles.
"Hehe, thank you." I smile back. We release our hug.
"Maddox, did you give her the ring?" Nico asks. He nods and I show her.
"It is beautiful. Did you help him pick it?" I wonder.
"I sure did. Rose-gold beautiful. I thought you would like it." Nico responds.
"I love it." I blush lightly.
"I am glad." Nico offers a smile. I smile and place my hand on her shoulder. I lean in and softly press my lips to her cheek. She gasps lightly and blushes deeply. I softly pull away and her beautiful blue eyes follow me. She is really blushing. Nico places her hand on the cheek that I kissed and smiles. She leans in and presses her lips to my cheek softly. I blush and smile.
"Well, I better head out to monitor the place." I sigh.
"Here is my number, if you want to text. And you look super amazing, just saying." Nico hands me a slip of paper.
"I am sure she looks nice, too bad I can't see..." Darwin sighs.
"Heh, maybe I will wear it again sometime." I giggle.
"You should." Nico whispers. I smile at her. I walk out with Maddox and as I am walking, Goosey runs up to me with Daz's overalls.
"Krystal, are donkeys supposed to shed?" She asks.
"I-I don't know. Maddox, stay here... Shit." I reply. I run off to the pirates cove. I head to the back of the pirates cove, finding Daz there, his black hair covering his right eye and he has he hand on his fur, trying to pull it out. His eyes flicker to me and he gasps.
"W-Who are you and why are you here?" He asks.
"Daz, it is me, Krystal. Stop!" I run over to him and pull his hand away from his fur.
"No!!" Daz exclaims.
"Daz... What has gotten into you?" I ask. He sighs and drops his hands at his side. I lightly move his soft black hair, finding some loose fur.
"I know you don't like this fur so..." He narrows his eyes.
"Daz, I was just being a judgmental bitch. I was broken. I'm sorry... I still... Lo-"
"Ye okay lad?" Goomba rushes over to us.
"You wouldn't understand... I'm depressed, I'm angry, I'm scared... Just everything." Daz sobs.
"Daz, I understand. I am depressed, angry and scared myself. Look at my arms, look at my thighs, all full of lies and pain." I hold out my arms.
"Krystal, ye need to stop that princess." Goomba murmurs.
"Walk a mile in my shoes..." I sigh and look at him. He looks at me with his beautiful green eyes.
"I'm sorry." He narrows his eyes.
"It is not your fault." I reply.
"What in the hell is goin' on in here?" We hear Foxy.
"Oh no..." Daz whispers. Foxy walks over to us and pushes us out of the way.
"Lad, how long have ye been doin' this? How long have ye been feelin' depressed? Answer me." Foxy asks.
"F-Foxy... Please don't worry..." Daz stutters.
"TELL ME LAD!!! Foxy exclaims.
"F-Foxy... Please... Do not worry about me." Daz pushes him, getting angry. Foxy shoves him onto the ground and they both start fighting. Foxy growls and clamps his mouth around Daz's neck.
"WE NEED HELP IN HERE!!!!!" I exclaim. I try to pull Foxy off.
"Help!!" I hear Daz cry.
"Foxy stop!!!" I shout. Foxy reaches back and elbows me in the ribs.
"F... Foxy... P-Please..." Daz sobs, struggling to breathe. I start coughing. Kenny and Maddox come in here and pull Foxy out of here. My rubs hurt. I ignore it and run over to Daz, who is near death.
"P-Please... H-Help..." Daz sobs. Goomba runs over to us.
"Hang in there, lad." Goomba whispers softly. Mike and Nico walk in here and carry Daz off. I clench my fists and Goomba places his hands on my shoulders.
"Princess, he will be okay..." Goomba murmurs. I shrug away from him and walk out, then run to the main room, finding Foxy there.
"N-Now lass... I-I can explai-" I run angrily and pin him against the wall.
"LOOK AT WHAT YOU DID!!!!" I scream.
"K-Krystal... N-Now don't do anything rash..." Foxy pleads. I angrily throw him on the ground and pin him down.
"DO ANYTHING RASH!!!?? LOOK AT WHAT YOU DID TO YOUR FUCKING FIRST MATES!!! YOU NEARLY KILLED DAZ AND YOU FUCKING ELBOWED MY RIBS!!! WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU!!! YOU '87 WRECK!!! YOU NEED TO BE THROWN BACK IN YOUR FUCKING COVE FOR GOOD!!! YOU ARE A FUCKING ASSHOLE!!! YOU CARE ABOUT DAZ?!! SURE, LIKE HELL YOU DO. IF YOU DID, YOU WOULD NOT HAVE DONE THAT!!! I FUCKING HATE YOU!!!!!!!" I scream at him. Bonnie pulls me off and I shove him.
"GET THE FUCK OFF ME!!!!" I shout. Bonnie looks at me with tears in his eyes and backs up slowly. Mike, BonBon and Freddy come out here.
"Krystal, cool it." Mike says softly. I rip my mask off my face and slam it on the ground.
"GET THIS FUCKING WRECK UNDER CONTROL!!!" I shout and walk out angrily. Mike follows me.
"Krystal, wait, please." Mike grabs my arm. I yank my arm away from him and slap him in the face.
"Leave me the fuck alone, Schmidt!" I exclaim. He grips my wrists and pulls me to him angrily.
"Tell me what the fuck is wrong and I will fix it god dammit. I.Can't.Fucking.Lose.You." He growls.
"I've had enough of Foxy hurting Daz and others god dammit. And he hurt my fucking ribs, god dammit Mike. I am so fucking sick of getting hurt in the ribs, they will never heal and I can never fucking breathe right. I could so fucking sue your ass and get this god damn place shut done, Schmidt." I explain angrily.
"You want me to take you to a doctor? You want me to fix your cracked ribs? Fine, I will fucking do it. Don't you dare sue me. This is my only fucking job." Mike asks.
"What the fuck else am I supposed to do?! Pretend this never happened and accept everyone's apology?! Fuck that! I have done that for too fucking long, I've been nice for too fucking long... Shove it up your fucking ass." I growl and try to rip my wrists away from him. He grips them tighter then sighs and let's go.
"Fine..." He narrows his eyes. I drop my arms and head to my car, I realize I forgot my keys and all that shit. I head back inside to my office and collect my things.
"Krystal, please... I'd like to talk to you..." I hear someones voice. I look over and see Bonnie at my left doorway.
"I am not in the fucking talking mood, Bonnie." I snap. He grabs my hand, eyes full with tears. I look at him.
"Krystal, I did nothing to you but be here for you all the time." Bonnie cries.
"I'm sorry... Okay? I just don't want to fucking be bothered, by any of you." I say, not so angrily, more disgusted. Bonnie narrows his eyes and releases my hand softly. I sigh and walk out, going home alone, angry, hurt, fucked up. I listen to the radio on the way home.
After a little while, I arrive home and throw my keys and wallet on the counter. I roughly take the rose clip out of my hair and throw it on the ground. I walk to my room and take my boots off, throwing them at my closet. I pull the costume off and change into booty shorts and a tank top. I walk to the restroom and look in the mirror, I grab my brush, scream and throw it at the mirror, cracking it. Fuck I hate Foxy right now. I could just go back and fucking tear him to shreds. I clench the counter and groan, tears of anger falling down from my eyes. I cry for a while and look at myself in the mirror, I look like a sad clown now. Fuck... I head to my room and plop down in my bed, making sure a gun is beside me, loaded... I stare at the ceiling and sigh. My phone sounds and I look at it. The pizzeria is calling me.
"I said I didn't want to talk to anyone, don't talk to me." I snap.
"Just letting you know, I am separating Foxy from Daz and Goomba until I get everything under control." Mike says.
"Like I give a fuck what you do with that fox?" I ask.
"Of course she don't care... I ruined me chances with her ever fergivin' me..." I hear Foxy say.
"I don't think I will ever forgive you, Foxy." I snap.
"Krystal, stop being so fucking harsh, he feels fucking bad enough." Mike snaps back at me.
"Good, kick him while he is fucking down. Like I give a fuck about his feelings? He sure the hell didn't give a fuck when he elbowed me in the ribs, now did he?" I make a point.
"Here is your problem, don't mess with shit. Plain and fuckng simple." Mike growls.
"Here is your problem, get your god damn animatronics under control. Plain and fucking simple." I burn him. He hangs up. I slam my phone on my night stand and pull the covers over me, closing my tired eyes slowly...
