I really, really, really don’t feel confident about this one, mostly because I know I haven’t completed the game yet (and probably never 100% complete it because I can’t do a Genocide run, nope nada FORGET IT). I know I’m lacking first-hand experience and I am perfectly aware that I might portray Chara “too nice” in my work (she’s still a little knife loving, humanity despising maniac OKAY
hey don’t we all hate humans at one point or another #EveryoneHasACharaInsideThem). So… please be gentle with me?
Chara didn’t know what to expect. Heck, there actually was a lot she expected, but not this.
“Oh my child!”
Toriel – her adoptive-mother she once killed (“That’s not right, Chara! This was our fault!” – “Shut up, Frisk!”) hugged her.
But… why. Hate me, despise me! If it was not for me, all of you— Asriel would—
“I’m so glad you are alright, Chara.” Big paws padded her head. There was no mistake that these belong to Asgore, her adoptive-father.
This was not how it should be. This was not right. She didn’t deserve their forgiveness nor their love.
“I’m…. I’m…” Chara was at a loss for words. There they were, the people she once called family and whose happiness she had destroyed. Even Asriel – Flowey – was with them. However, he still remained a flower without a soul, without feelings.
“…I—I’m sorry, Asriel.”
Flowey looked the other way. He didn’t, much less couldn’t acknowledge the current events. Moreover he didn’t want to admit that something inside him was (slowly but surely) changing. It might not be much, however a change was still a change.
“Child, you must be tired! Let’s go home, shall we?”
Home. What a nice ring this word had, almost nostalgic.
“It’s… good to be back.”
