Everything went black for what felt like seconds before you finally came round your head felt numb and you found out why.
"She's waking up guys" you moved your head slightly and managed to make out a yellow blur, you must be against Chica, so it was she who called.
Within a split second all the animatronics (except the puppet and Mangle) crowded around your fetal body asking if you were all right and that they were sorry for mentioning your leg.
"Guys back off you will only make things worse, give her some space" barked Chica, she looked down at you while gently stroking your head "you okay?" she asked softly.
You let out a contended sigh, loving the stroking sensation in your hair, you nearly purred until you realised you were still in a room full of moving animatronics, you carefully got up and almost whined at the loss "I'm fine now thank you" you tried to hide your blush by looking away.
Chica looked hurt for a moment before it changed "no problem"
"So what now?" you asked trying to stop the tension rising.
"Feel free to ask us any questions, we will tell you only what we want you to know" the puppet replied "beware though we can only chat till 6 am"
"Originally we weren't able to move except for two positions, however when Marionette came along he some how made us able to roam around at night, however when the clock chimes 6 am our bodies freeze and and go take us back to the stage"
"And once again don't mention it" the puppet replied "I needed you to do some tasks for me, you kept your part of the deal I kept mine"
"What deal?" the puppet froze and seemed like a statue you quickly rushed out "tell if you want to, it wasn't my place to ask anyway, everyone is meant to have secrets and it is for them to decide whether to tell others or not"
The Marionette looked at you for a moment before looking away "I'm going back to Prize Corner, have fun" he then left.
"Is it something I said?" you asked,you mean to upset him.
"Don't worry he is always like" Toy Freddy replied "one moment he is an innocent child the next he is fully mature and acting like a true leader"
Sensing that he wasn't going to say anything else you quickly changed the subject "I' surprised that you aren't upset for trying to fix you Bonnie"
The blue bunny waved it off "if you messed me up I would have smacked you" you couldn't tell if he was lying or not "but since you fixed me up and in time I was and am willing to let it slide"
"But I was late wasn't I?"
"If I wasn't fixed by the time the place closed for the night then you wouldn't be here and still standing, but you got me fixed a few minutes into opening time, so technically you were on time"
You decided to agree with to save argument.
"We may not like the grown ups but we don't exactly hate them" Freddy continued "although I think the Marionette has always hate them and led us to hating them as well, although you have become an exception"
"We're not sure ourselves, but it may be because you spent a lot of time with him after cleaning us up, we've hear you speaking but it was muffled due to distance, he has always seem to stay out of our social circle unless he needs us to..." he was cut off when Bonnie subtly elbowed him in the stomach.
You tilted your head in a curious way, the puppet needed them to what?
"AH! enough of this dark mood stuff" interrupted Chica "are you hungry (y/n)?"
As if on cue your stomach growled like thunder making you blush in embarrassment, looks like the snack wore off.
"Great, lets eat" she was about to grab your hand when you asked.
"Won't I get in trouble, isn't there camera's in the kitchen?"
"No silly, the camera's are in the more important areas of the building, besides you are going to be running this place one day aren't you? It's not like your dad can fire his own daughter"
You blush when you realise that she was right, you followed her into the kitchen an see her take out some ready made dough.
"I've only heard and read how people make it, although you will have to make it because I can't grab things properly" Chica said.
"As long as you tell me what to do because I have never cooked before" you replied.
"Hold on a moment" she walked away for a moment then came back with a book "I'll read out the instructions and tell you where the stuff are, if I am going to fast then let me know"
And so you and Chica spent at least half an hour to make the pizza before placing it into the oven to cook.
"Nice work (y/n), now we just need to clean up" she made a 'hmm' noise before replying "why don't I mop the floor and the counters, you can clean the dishes"
"Won't you get hurt?" you had clearly forgotten about Stacy's conversation.
"Silly, you you wash me and my friends remember? We can handle a bit of water,it's only if we a bucket thrown over us or if we put our hands and feet into one"
"So dumping water is bad, and cloth of slightly dripping water is easier and good?"
"Yes since we get drops of water on our endoskeletons all the time but not enough for us to malfunction, especially with pizza grease" she muttered the last part darkly.
"I'll go get bucket then"
You left the kitchen and back into the main room, in time to see Freddy and Bonnie picking up Bonnie.
"Where are you taking Mangle? And how come they haven't said anything yet?" you refused to call Mangle an 'it'.
"We were going to put her back into Kid's Cove" Freddy explained "she tires very easily you see, and it took all of her energy to say 'thank you', if she had stayed silent she would have been able to function longer"
"Mangle's a female?" was all you could say.
"We forget you haven't been here before" Bonnie sighed "but yes Mangle is female but because of the constant 'taking apart' thing wit the children, she is slowly starting to loose her sanity"
Whir, click Mangle's head moved slightly to see your face properly "M-Mangle's-s f-friend" her voice glitched.
Am I her friend? Was that what she was asking? "yes?"
"F-Frien-n-n-d h-h-hap-p-pp-p-py?" yikes, her voice box was even worse than you first thought.
"Yes Mangle, I'm happy" you replied softly before scratching her head.
There was a faint purring like noise coming from Mangle as you scratched behind the ear, Freddy and Bonnie watched from their position.
"G-Good n-n-n-night-t-t (y/n)" Mangle mumbled before powering herself down.
"I've never seen Mangle power herself up twice in one night" Bonnie mumbled before shifting a little to hold Mangle more securely "you better go and see Chica before she gets lonely and comes looking for you"
"If your worried about Mangle don't worry, me, Bonnie and the puppet takes turns keeping her company"
You looked at them for a moment before nodding and picking up the bucket before heading into the kitchen.
"What took you so long?" Chica joked "you came just in time though, the pizza's almost done"
"Sorry" you said as you placed the bucket near the empty sink.
"I filled the other sink halfway so that if it's too hot or cold you can change it to a suitable temperature"
"okay" you put your left hand inside the water, it was cold so you ran the hot water while placing some utensils into the sink.
DING! "oh good the pizza's ready" Chica chirped happily as she walked to the oven and opened it, you felt a small draft of hot air blow on your arm.
Once you were sure the water was hot enough you turned the tap off and dried your arms before going to Chica "want me to take it out?"
"Yes please, for some reason our circuits go hay wire when near heat, I was lucky this time but we don't know why it happens"
You put some oven gloves on before reaching into the oven and grabbing the tray, you could feel the heat circle and swarm around your naked arm but barely felt it.
"Okay then, leave them on the counter and let them cool down, they should be ready when we finished cleaning"
You placed the tray where Chica pointed then got to work on cleaning the dishes while Chica filled the bucket before setting to work on the floor with the mop, the silence, aside from the sound of water was comforting and slightly welcoming.
