I cry just a little…on the inside
from cutting words
I laugh a little… on the outside
never see I care
This smile that I’m smiling
for it’s the last and only thing
we’ll ever share
“capricorn. it’s a zodiac sign. wait. we had horoscopes underground, so shouldn’t you have had them too?”
“OH! IT’S PART OF THE HOROSCOPE?! I USED TO REALLY PUT MY DEDUCTION SKILLS TO THE TEST AND SOLVE THOSE EVERY DAY! I HAVEN’T SEEN ONE IN YEARS!! DOES ANYONE HAVE A NEWSPAPER??”
“HERE! I ALREADY SOLVED MINE, SO YOU CAN HAVE IT!” Papyrus hands over the newspaper, and Crooks smiles his thanks.
Immediately, he flips to the page.
“HM….” Crooks stares at the print.
“I’VE GOT IT! IT’S TELLING ME THAT I NEED TO MAKE A NEW PUZZLE TODAY! SOMETHING FLASHY THAT REQUIRES A LOT OF ENERGY TO GET THROUGH SAFELY!”
“WHAT ABOUT THE LOVE PORTION OF THE HOROSCOPE??”
“RIGHT! CAN’T FORGET THAT!” Crooks skims further down.
His sunken sockets are wide. “OH, WOWIE! SOMEONE REALLY WANTS TO DATE ME, HUH? WELL…. THAT’S NOT SURPRISING CONSIDERING I AM THE GREAT PAPYRUS! WHO WOULDN’T WANT TO SHOWER ME WITH KISSES?? NYEH HEH HEH!” He grins wide, standing tall and confident.
“WHOEVER YOU ARE, YOU’LL GET THE CHANCE TO DATE ME IF YOU CAN SOLVE MY NEWEST PUZZLE! THAT I’M ABOUT TO CREATE! IN JUST A MOMENT!!”
