Happily never after

Chapter Text

Blue smiled as he got himself ready for the day. A constant smile on his face while he adjusted his suit, examining himself in the mirror, he could barely contain his excitement. He was finally turning eighteen, his dreams so close he could feel it. Now that he was of proper age he could finally become a knight, something he had dreamed about since he was a babybones, And the best part is he'd get to protect his older brother.

He giggled happily as he stopped fiddling with his suit, turning back around to get the oh so beloved neckless from the glass casing beside his bed. The neckless was decorated with a bunch of small blue crystals that seemed to resemble stars, given to him by his brother who thought they matched his eyes perfectly. The Crystals were pretty common In his kingdom, especially in a small part of town called 'waterfall' if he wasn't mistaken, but the neckless was one of his most treasured possessions.

He put the neckless on, tucking it under the collar of his suit so it would go unnoticed, the neckless was something only him and his brother knew he actually wore, it being pretty unusual for a man to wear such an accessory, even for nobles. After checking one Last time to make sure he looked perfect he walked out of his room, making his way to the throne room to go join his brother and his father before the ceremony, nobles and royals alike were going to attend, he liked to believe it was to celebrate his maturity, the real reason being something he had yet to find out, something his father had promised to tell him after the ceremony ended.

He made his way through the empty corridors, all the maids and servants probably busy with the preparation for his big day. He stopped in front of the doors that lead to the throne room, taking one last moment to fix himself before walking through. As soon as he walked in he saw the room filled with servants, rushing back and forth to get everything in place, a giant tables set with beautiful cloths, blue flowers in every flower pot in the room. There sitting on the throne was his father, making sure everything was as he ordered. on his right was blue's brother, seated on his own throne. even from the other side of the room he could tell the other was lost in thought, he looked upset, though blue couldn't exactly place why.

As soon as his father noticed him enter he stood up, gesturing him to come join him by his side. Blue happily walked through the room as all the servants made sure to stay out of his way, not wanting to accidentally bump into the young prince, especially not in the company of the king. Gaster took his seat before speaking "good to see you've finally come to join us. Happy birthday" Blue smiled brightly "thank you father" he took his seat on his left, his older brother finally seeming to notice him as stretch gave him a soft smile and a wave from the other side of the throne.

"So, how do you like the decorations?" gaster asked as he glanced out at the endless bustling of servants. Blue looked at his father before looking over the room, thinking for a bit before returning his gaze to his father "I'd add some white roses to the middle piece" he pointed to the flower pot at the main table, seeing his father smirk as he nodded to his request, calling over a servant to go get some white Rose's from the gardens. Blue sat back with a satisfied smile, just watching the servants work as time went on.

guests started arriving late into the evening, thankfully everything had been ready before they arrived, the few servants remaining simply there to serve them drinks and show them to their seats. Each time a new guest arrived, they would come and greet blue up at the throne, giving him a small bow before going to sit or chat with some of the others who arrived. He could feel butterflies in his stomach at finally being treated like an adult. most of the guests were nobles but after a bit some royals from the surrounding kingdoms were arriving, the would always greet his father before him. After some time past, the servants came in with the food, placing it on the table as everyone sat down and started eating.

all the royals were seated closer then the nobles of course, it bring a sign of status. Blue did end up catching some of their glances while they talked. It felt weird, he could tell they weren't talking about him since he could clearly hear the topic of which they were focusing on from his throne, but everyone seemed to have their focus on him. It felt unnatural but it WAS his party so he guessed it wasn't that unusual. Yet still, it was uncomfortable to say the least. like they were trying to judge him, It was starting to make him anxious and he had no idea why.

One guest in particular was bothering him the most, he wasn't like the others, he looked...determined, not judging. a smirk on his face that made blue want to hide away in his room, another skeleton like him, a prince if he remembered right. He didn't know what it was but something about him seemed off. Blue shook his head, he shouldn't be so judge mental. He looked over to his brother, only to see him looking right back, he still looked upset, though if anything he could see pity in his eyes, only making him more confused. There was definitely something he wasn't being told and he had a bad feeling about it.
