Red chest: 100% Green chest: 0%
Red? Kinda threatening color to me. Really? No, thank you. I ignore the pull this time and go straight towards the green chest. Are you sure that's a good idea, Claw? "shut up." I open the chest and "aaaaaahhhhhh!" Fire erupts from the chest! I jump backwards faster than should be physically possible, but a spark lands on my hospital gown. It goes up in flames...
You cannot give up just yet.
No, Claw! STAY DETERMINED!
I fell again! Ow! What happened? One second, I'm literally burning alive, and the next, I'm falling down the exact same - You better not swear again. You didn't forget we can read your thoughts, did you? "i literally forgot you were here." Ouch, my feelings. I hope you learned your lesson, Claw. Don't ignore that urge anymore, ok? "i shouldn't have to take orders from a couple ghost kids! i'm the oldest one here!" Oh? How old are you, genius? ****. We should just call him Captain Claw. He's got a serious case of sailor mouth. "you first then!" Well, let's see. I was 11 when I was brutally murdered, and I've been dead for, oh I don't know, seven years... "you sure it's dani and not sassy?" Both of you stop. We're not getting anywhere this way. "yeah, yeah, whatever frisk." "Well, what do we have here? A smiley trashb - I mean, a charming skeleteen and a couple of human souls! And one is Determination, that's rare!" I spin around and see... a... talking... flower - what? "And lucky, too! I saw your little lapse in judgement there!" He mutters something that sounds like "...supposed to be... anyway! I'm rambling. Howdy! I'm Flowey! Flowey the Flower! Your friendly guide to the Underground!" "welp, i hate to admit it, but i could use a guide, what with my amnesia." "Amnesia, huh? Wow, that must suck! I'd hate not being able to remember who I really am!" He giggles and rubs his leaves together in a really creepy way. "now look here, weed." I get right up in his face and he screams. "i don't want to deal with any ******** here, so don't get any ideas." "W-what do you mean, tr - pal? I was just excited about the prospect of teaching someone for the first time in years! The last time I taught someone the ways of the Underground was... oh, ten years ago... Anyway! What would you like to know first?
"what's the star i saw right before i dropped down here?" "Oh that! That's a Miracle Star! Only someone with lots of determination can use it. That's why I said you were so lucky to have the Determination soul! What's your name, anyway, kid?" Huh? O-oh! M-my name's Frisk! "Frisk, huh? Are... are you sure?" Well... no? "Huh. Anyway, think of it like a video game save point. If you die, which seems really likely with your low hp, you'll go back in time to your last save!"
What's so special about my soul? "Funny you should ask that! Determination is the rarest soul trait among humans, turning the soul a bright red color! In short, Determination is the will to keep on living! You know, I have some powerful Determination of my own..."
"what the **** was with those chests?" "I'm not going to lie, that was funny. You just lit up like a light bulb. You should have picked the red chest - red for Determination. A trait you actually have?" "oh shut the **** up!" "Anyway, here! This is what was in the red chest. I'm in the same situation you are. A toy for someone else's entertainment. This should help somehow!"
You got the Red Key. [KEY ITEM]
"what do you mean, toy?" Flowey says nothing, but looks extremely nervous.
"do you know this dani kid at all?" "Dani? Oh, the Perseverance soul. No, I never met her personally." Duh. Pretty sure I would have remembered a talking flower. "Perseverance is extremely close to determination, you know. You can go a little farther with some extra perseverance."
"well, i got what i need for now. peace, weed." "Well, bye, smi - buddy! Oh, and good luck with this next room!" "what do you -" Claw! Look out! I dodge an incoming swing at my chest. What looks like a psychotic purple lizard with an axe lets out an unholy screech. Well, ****. AGAIN CAP?!
Don't worry, I won't never pull that trick again! I just needed to show that Claw isn't Frisk to be pushed around. He has his own will.
