@Frisk POV@

 I wake up and yawn. Remembering what happened yesterday I start to cry softly and hug sis. I could feel her soft breaths and steady heartbeat. Suddenly I hear someone clear their throat. Sans.
"Heya kiddo, care for something to drink?" He asks.
I nod in response and he floats me a cup of water as I settle on the arm of the couch. "Let's have a talk kiddo." I nod again. "Look, I know you've been well not doing that stuff this time around. Just please keep it that way." Suddenly my consciousness is pushed to the side and Chara comes out.
"She can't keep me at bay forever, Comedian."
"You're right, she probably can't." Sans starts with his left eye flaring to life.
"I can though." That was sis! Her eyes start glowing bright yellow. Chara tried to stop her but I hold them still. Sis performs a soul extraction than a sealing spell. She holds up an old locket. "That should do it. They won't get out of there anytime soon." She puts the locket around her neck. 
"Kiddo, Paps wanted to battle you. He's on the outskirts going to waterfall. I'll stay here and keep an eye on her." I nod and run out of the house. I'll show everyone MERCY now!
I run towards waterfall to go and have fun with my friend. It get really foggy before I see Papyrus 
"HUMAN. ALLOW ME TO TELL YOU ABOUT SOME COMPLEX FEELINGS!" He said in his loud voice. I nod. "FEELINGS LIKE… THE JOY OF FINDING ANOTHER PASTA LOVER. THE ADMIRATION FOR ANOTHER'S PUZZLE SOLVING SKILLS. THE DESIRE TO HAVE A COOL, SMART PERSON THINK YOU ARE COOL. THESE FEELINGS… THAT MUST BE WHAT YOU ARE FEELING RIGHT NOW!!!" I nod again and smile at him.
"I CAN HARDLY IMAGINE WHAT IT MUST BE TO FEEL THAT WAY. AFTER ALL, I AM VERY GREAT. I DON'T EVER WONDER WHAT HAVING LOTS OF FRIENDS IS LIKE. I PITY YOU… LONELY HUMAN… WORRY NOT!!! YOU SHALL BE LONELY NO LONGER! I, THE GREAT PAPYRUS, WILL BE YOUR…" He stops for a moment to gather his thoughts. "NO… NO, THIS IS ALL WRONG! I CAN'T BE YOUR FRIEND!!! YOU ARE A HUMAN! I MUST CAPTURE YOU!!! THEN, I CAN FULFILL MY LIFE LONG DREAM!!! POWERFUL! POPULAR! PRESTIGIOUS!!! THAT'S PAPYRUS!!! THE NEWEST MEMBER… OF THE ROYAL GUARD! " The area goes black and white. 
Papyrus blocks the way!
The four usual buttons appear in front if me. I press ACT. The options are Check, Flirt, and Insult. The last is off the table. I pick Flirt. Winking at him I blow him a kiss.
"WHAT!? FL-FLIRTING!? SO YOU FINALLY REVEAL YOUR ULTIMATE FEELINGS! W-WELL IM A SKELETON WITH VERY HIGH STANDARDS!!" Two new buttons appear. "I can make spaghetti" and "I have zero redeeming qualities." I pick the spaghetti one. "OH NO!!! YOU'RE MEETING ALL OF MY STANDARDS!!! I GUESS THIS MEANS I HAVE TO GO ON A DATE WITH YOU…? LET'S DATE L-LATER!! AFTER I CAPTURE YOU!" You easily dodge his attack. 
Papyrus is thinking about what to wear for his date.
My turn again. I choose MERCY.
"SO YOU WON'T FIGHT… THEN LET'S SEE IF YOU CAN HANDLE MY FABLED BLUE ATTACK!" He launches a bunch of blue bones at me. I stay perfectly still. Suddenly my soul feels heavy and he launches a regular attack at me. It's hard to move but I managed to dodge it. "YOU'RE BLUE NOW! THAT'S MY ATTACK! NYEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH!!!"
You're blue now.
I choose MERCY again. "HMMM… I WONDER WHAT I SHOULD WEAR…" I dodge all of his attacks.

I throw the stick I have. Papyrus brings it back in his mouth.
"PAPYRUS! UNPARALLELED SPAGHETTORE!"
Dodge.
Papyrus realizes he doesn't have ears.
MERCY.
"UNDYNE WILL BE REALLY PROUD OF ME!!"
Dodge.
Papyrus is cackling 
MERCY.
"THE KING WILL TRIM A HEDGE IN THE SHAPE OF MY SMILE!!!"
Dodge.
Papyrus is trying hard to play it cool.
MERCY.
"MY BROTHER WILL… WELL HE WON'T CHANGE VERY MUCH."
Dodge.
Smells like bones.
MERCY.
"I'LL HAVE LOTS OF ADMIRERS! BUT…" 
Dodge.
Papyrus prepares a non-bone attack then spends a minute fixing his mistake. 
MERCY.
"WILL ANYONE LIKE ME AS SINCERELY AS YOU?"
"Sis." I sign out while dodging.
Papyrus is preparing a bone attack.
MERCY.
"SOMEONE LIKE YOU IS REALLY RARE…"
Dodge.
Smells like bones.
MERCY.
"AND DATING MIGHT BE KIND OF HARD…"
Dodge.
MERCY. 
"AFTER YOU'RE CAPTURED AND SENT AWAY."
Dodge. 
MERCY. 
"UGH… WHO CARES! GIVE UP!!"
Dodge.
Papyrus is rattling his bones.
MERCY. 
"GIVE UP OR FACE MY… SPECIAL ATTACK!!!"
Dodge.
MERCY. 
"YEAH!!! VERY SOON I WILL USE MY SPECIAL ATTACK!"
Dodge.
Papyrus is considering his options. 
MERCY. 
"NOT TOO LONG AND I WILL USE THAT SPECIAL ATTACK!" 
Dodge.
MERCY. 
"THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE... BEFORE MY SPECIAL ATTACK!!!"
Dodge.
MERCY. 
"BEHOLD... MY SPECIAL ATTACK!" I see a little white dog chewing on a large bone. "WHAT THE HECK! THAT'S MY SPECIAL ATTACK! HEY! YOU STUPID DOG! DO YOU HEAR ME!? STOP MUNCHING ON THAT BONE!" The dog runs away doing an annoying little trot. "HEY!!! WHAT ARE YOU DOING!!! COME BACK HERE WITH MY SPECIAL ATTACK!!!… OH WELL. I'LL JUST USE A REALLY COOL REGULAR ATTACK."
MERCY.
"HERE'S AN ABSOLUTELY NORMAL ATTACK."
I dodge with a lot of difficulty.
Papyrus is out of breath by the end of it. "WELL…! IT'S CLEAR... YOU CAN'T! DEFEAT ME!!! YEAH!!! I CAN SEE YOU SHAKING IN YOUR BOOTS!!! THEREFORE I, THE GREAT PAPYRUS, ELECT TO GRANT YOU PITY!! I WILL SPARE YOU HUMAN!!! NOW'S YOUR CHANCE TO ACCEPT MY MERCY."
MERCY!
I run over and give Papyrus a huge hug and write in the snow "wanna be friends?"
"WOWIE! YES! NOW LETS GET YOU BACK TO YOUR SISTER!" He picks me up and brings me back on his shoulders.
