Sans was leading Chara, showing her the Snowdin. The houses, the river, the library... Everything.
-...So since all the Royal Family are planning to move to the capital, most of the city moved there... Hey, Princess, are you listening?-
He asked as he noticed that Chara wasn't even looking anymore. She had talked with various monsters a few minutes ago and it had literally turned her mind off.
-Oh, yes yes, the capital and...-
Chara tried to come back to reality. Talking with monsters made her sink into a comparison table between humans and monsters. The difference almost stung her in the soul.
-Is everything alright, Princess?-
-Please don't call me "Princess", I'm just a human, it doesn't make me anything above your level.-
She pleased. The skeleton shrugged.
-Alright then, Chara. But seriously, what's wrong? you aren't listening to me at all.-
-Oh uh, I just... I was thinking about humans, and...-
-What? No, on the contrary. There's nothing to miss up there.-
Chara crossed her hands behind her back, making a serious face that showed that she doesn't want to keep talking about that.
Sans searched to change the topic, and eventually found it:
-So, how did you end up down here?-
-You mean how did I fall? I slipped on a vine in the dark and fell. I still don't understand why was Asriel up at night when he found me...-
-Up at night? According to the King, It was like 10am!-
Sans said, confused.
-Really? I fell down in the middle of the night!-
-Did you pass out?-
-No... At least I think I didn't...-
-Then you probably did...-
Few moments of awkward silence followed. But Sans hated such moments when it was silent and awkward, so he immediately asked a question:
-Well, if you already began meeting monsters around, would you like to meet my bro? He's very cool, you'll like him. But be careful, if he offers you self-made spaghetti, rather disappear.
-Um, okay, why not.-
TWO HOURS LATER
Chara came back home all bright and smiling widely. She wasn't this amused since falling down yet, and Toriel noticed it.
-You look happy, my child.-
She said. Chara nodded, her smile getting wider.
-The monsters in Snowdin are so cool and so nice!-
Chara dropped onto the large chair with a visibly happy expression. Toriel smiled widely.
-I'm glad you're making friends, Chara! Soon you'll really get popular!-
She joked, then added:
-Oh, I just remember! Since you are the first human, our scientist, Doctor W.D Gaster asked if he can take an analysis of your soul.-

Maybe a truly happy ending is possible after all. Not all humans are horrible creatures. Chara learned it when the Underground Kingdom accepted humans other than her, who as well found their happiness outside of humanity. (Collaboration with @OlegLu...
