Inanimate Insanity Fan Fix I guess
Fan finished typing the last words onto the internet post he was making as he frowned slightly. He stared at the phone screen for a few seconds, the light coming from it illuminating his face in the dark night. He went to press the “post” button, but he soon found himself having his finger hover over it instead. His frown became deeper as he began to feel uneasy, although he had no idea why. Was it the words Paintbrush had said earlier? He was so unsure. As he kept thinking, his frown became more and more deeper, and he soon felt frustrated.
“What are you going to do?! Write it on your blog?!”
He soon slammed the button and it was quickly posted. “I guess I did.” He thought. He didn’t know why he was outside, and up so late. It must’ve been at least midnight, he wasn’t to sure, and didn’t bother to check the time on his phone. Maybe it would be best for him to sit outside just a while longer…
“Fan? Why are you up so late?” asked Test Tube from behind him. Fan flinched at the sudden voice that came from the scientist. Fan looked at her nervously, still frowning.
“Oh, um, I guess I just couldn’t sleep.” he answered quickly. He seemed to have a lot on his mind. Test Tube walked over to fan and sat right next to him while frowning slightly.
“Golly, Fan, it’s about one in the morning you know!” She exclaimed worriedly. She looked at Fan with worry on her face. Fan looked away from Test Tube now. He looked only somewhat tired.
“If it’s so late, than why are you also up late?” asked Fan curiously. Test Tube looked nervous for a few seconds, then put her hand behind Fan’s back. Fan quickly looked surprised.
“Nevermind that, you seem to have a lot on your mind! And as your friend, I feel that I should try to help you.” Test Tube smiled brightly as she said that, and Fan’s eyes widened in surprise as he heard her words. He looked at her for a few seconds. He hadn’t really felt that he had any friends here, and it was suddenly very comforting, the fact that he had someone he could trust on this show. He smiled softly.
“That… really means a lot Test Tube, thanks.” said Fan with a slight voice crack. He didn’t know why in the world he was feeling so emotional, but he was. Test Tube’s eyebrows perked up quickly.
“Oh! No problem,” She smiled goofily and happily,”Um, you can tell me what’s wrong, you look pretty upset.” she changed to frowning once again. Fan sighed.
“It’s just… I honestly hate how this show works! You have one flaw, and you’re voted off! I’m trying my best, I really am, but it just hurts, the fact that we could end up having something happen like last season. I wasn’t there for it, but I certainly watched it. And there’s Steve Cobs, and,” he let out a deep and shaky sigh, “There’s just so much pressure, you know? I just… I’m kind of used to people leaving me out I guess. I know most don’t really care about me, heck, Lightbulb doesn’t even remember my name, and you got really hurt in the last challenge and-” Fan was quickly interrupted by Test Tube hugging him. He stayed quiet in surprise until Test Tube brushed a finger under one of his eyes, which made him realize he had started to cry.
“Sorry about that Test Tube-”
“Why in the world are you apologizing?!” Test Tube looked at Fan worriedly,”I understand how stressful it can be, but I’ll always be here for you, okay?” Test Tube smiled softly at Fan. Fan looked at Test Tube for a while with his mouth in a small frown, but then smiled in relief. In fact he looked much happier and he felt relieved after letting that all out to someone he could trust.
