Narration (Lorenzo Speaking): Tricia has one hell of an ass. Man, I really want a piece of that. It pleases me to know that she was finally able to see eye to eye with me in the end. For a while there, I thought she hated me or something. I guess the moral of the story here is that even though girls are annoyed by persistence and flirting, they are also highly turned on by it. Or maybe she just likes that I'm black. I mean, let's face it, being black automatically makes you awesome. Anyways, she's letting me join her on her journey now, so I look forward to going on another adventure with her.
In an underground cave, rested the village of the vampires. There was much open space in the cave, and of course, many vampire walking around. Inside the cave, everything was really dark. As everyone there was a vampire though, they don't really need to be able to see things to sense that they are there. In the cave, a girl spawned in her vampire avatar for the first time. That girl was Cherill Ohara. When she spawned, all the vampires turned their head for a moment to look at her.
She looked around in amazement at the village surrounding her. She didn't really understand how she could sense it in such darkness, but she happy she could. She wasn't really sure where to go at first, but that wouldn't be the number one thing on her mind very long. As she stood there, she noticed the vampires talking about something and pointing toward the top of the cave. She was confused and couldn't help but be curious.
Cherill: Umm, what's going on up there?
Vampire Player: There's an unwanted visitor in the Upper Village.
Cherill: The Upper Village?
Vampire: You must be new. The vampire village has been separated into three layers. The top layer above is called the Upper Village. It's on the surface of Surgolia. Where we are right now is the Mid Village. Below us is the Lower Village. That's where the vampire leaders reside. They make decisions for the village down there.
Cherill: Oh, what are the other two layers for then?
Vampire Player: They are pretty much for the same thing. Most of us stay in the Mid Village because really it's just where we spawned. Most of the shops and everything are here. Anything important can be found here and we like to stay out of sight. The Upper Village has a couple shops but it's mainly where the vampires train and do battle. So, there's no real reason to go up there unless we go on a quest or something.
Cherill: That makes sense.
Vampire Player: Anyways, as I was saying. We have an intruder in the Upper Village. He is a werewolf under the name 'The Big Bad Wolf'. He's a rogue werewolf player who likes to cause trouble around Gardelon. He's pretty powerful too, so we are a bit frightened of dealing with him as most of us aren't of a level high enough to give him a challenge.
Cherill: Well then, that's not very cool. Why exactly does he cause so much trouble? I mean, it seems kind of pointless to me.
Vampire Player: It's the downside of not having any real consequences for losing. People don't need a reason to cause trouble. We would attack him as a group, but like I said, he frightens us.
Cherill: I see. Well, we can't have that can we?
Vampire Player: Unfortunately, we kind of just have to deal with it. We can get a hit on him freely because he's caused so much trouble that he's free game in any place that's not the werewolf village. We could sneak up on him, but we can't really do anything more than land a couple hit on him before he takes out the entire village. You know something though. You have an odd appearance. You don't really appear to be a vampire.
Cherill: I just like having the powers and drawbacks of a vampire, it allows for more creativity and strategy than some normal race. It's also known for being dark, and I kind of like dark things. But, I wanted an appearance like this. So, I set it up when I joined the game. Never mind that though, how do I fight?
Vampire Player: Oh right, you need to talk to the vampire merchant NPC and receive a chip bracelet from him.
Cherill: Alright, I shall. Then when I'm done I'm going to see if this wolf is really as bad as you say he is.
Vampire Player: No, don't go up there, it's suicide.
Cherill: Well, I'm sure as hell going to try to get rid of him. You guys can stay here if you like, but I got this.
Cherill walked over to the vampire merchant NPC and placed her hand on a metal plate which recorded her player information from the real world. When she got her bracelet, she checked the chips to see what she had. She wasn't really please with having only what it gave her though, so she decided to talk to the merchant about weapons.
Vampire Merchant NPC: You can take a look at our collection. You have a selection of weapons that you can get for free as your first weapon. So, you can feel free to choose.
Cherill did as he said and looked at the weapon chips which were lying in a box when they were picked up, they would display a virtual image of the item. There were of course basic weapons likes swords and shields as well as bow and arrows. Cherill wanted something different though. Something basic but not often used. When she decided, she had chosen a free weapon pair and added the chip to her inventory.
Vampire Merchant NPC: Thank you, come again.
Vampire Player: Why did you choose that when there were so many better weapons.
Cherill: Because, I have a plan and these will help me succeed with that plan.
Vampire Player: This I have to see.
The vampires got over their fear enough to follow Cherill through the cave. When she reached the end of the cave and walked out though the vampires hid behind a building and peeked out around the corner to see what was going on. The Upper Village wasn't what she expected, but made sense for a vampire village. The buildings around made the village look deserted as they were destroyed and grass was risen from the cracks in the stone ground.
There were trees in sight which surrounded the village, but the closer they were, the more dead they were. Cherill walked out to the center of the village as she saw the werewolf searching through the shop stalls. When she noticed him, she had to take a deep breath because she wanted to make sure she was ready. After all, she was still literally a noob at the game. She worked up her courage though.
Cherill: HEY YOU! LOOK AT ME FURBALL!
The Big Bad Wolf was annoyed by being called a furball more than anything, so when he turned and saw a noob girl yelling at he couldn't help but be bother annoyed and amused. The Big Bad Wolf walked forward toward her.
The Big Bad Wolf: Ha ha! You have some guts kid. You're really foolish though to insult me. Do you not know who I am?
Cherill: I know who you are. You're the jackass who goes around causing trouble. Why don't you take your overgrown ass and go play somewhere else puppy?
BB Wolf: What did you just call me, little girl?
Cherill: You heard what I called you. Are you acting dumb or are you legitimately that stupid?
BB Wolf: Why you? That's it.
The Big Bad Wolf has challenged you to a duel will you accept?
Before answering her notification, Cherill pressed the fourth button on her chip bracelet and pressed another button immediately after. At that moment, a red cloak appeared on her. It was red all over and she put the hood over her head. It highly made her resemble a famous fairy tale character.
Cherill: We're going to reenact a fairy tale little wolfie. Once upon a time, there was a little girl with a red hood, known as Little Red Riding Hood. Once day, when she returned to her home she realized something strange about her grandmother. What big arms she had, and a big nose, and legs and ears and eyes and teeth. There was no explanation aside from the one she hadn't realized. The Big Bad Wolf whom she'd spoken to earlier used that information to eat her mother and then the wolf ate Little Red Riding Hood. Today though class, we will learn about the alternate ending where Red skins the wolf. How does that sound?
BB Wolf: You are so annoying. Don't be so cocky you noob.
Cherill pressed the 'accept' button on the notification and surveyed the area to find what she could use to defeat the wolf. When she got her idea, she grinned. Two seconds were left on the countdown.
Cherill: I'm not the cocky one here. Don't underestimate me.
With that, the countdown hit zero and the battle begun. Cherill started off quickly by pulling out a pair of yo-yos and spinning them around quickly. They spun so fast that they were breaking the stone beneath her feet. The stones flew into the air and she hit them again with her yo-yos as they floated in front of her. The force from the yo-yos sent a barrage of stone toward the Big Bad Wolf.
The wolf was surprised by the attack and hit by the first couple, but then used his advantageous stats to avoid the rest and rushed toward Cherill. As he approached closer, Cherill made a stream of water shoot her into the air as she flipped across the battlefield to the other side. Once there, she repeated the process of tearing up the ground with her yo-yos and hitting them toward the wolf. The wolf was able to avoid them with ease.
BB Wolf: I've already figured out your trick girl. You're going to need to figure out something new to hit me again.
The wolf rushed in at her again, and again she shot herself away with a stream of water. She didn't go across the battlefield that time though. Instead she had it shoot her off to the left and forward to a distance from the first and second place she attacked from, to make a triangle. She turned toward the wolf and repeated the process; destroying the stone and then hitting them toward the wolf. He easily dodged them again.
BB Wolf: Just give up, you can't do anything.
Cherill just gave him a smirk and dodged him as he rushed toward her again. She used another stream of water to shoot herself across the battlefield, so that the place she had been would make the shape of a diamond. Once more, she used her yo-yos to do the same thing, and yet again the wolf dodged them. He was getting frustrated though by her repetitive and pointless attacks. He rushed at her again and she shot herself back across the battlefield with another stream of water.
As she flipped over the battlefield she hit the stone in the exact middle of the other stone areas she had destroyed. It cracked and some of it flew upward. When she landed, she immediately shot herself forward and to the left toward the second place she had destroyed. As she flew there, she again aimed her yo-yos down at the center area, destroying more of the ground. Finally, she immediately shot herself across the battlefield with another stream of water after landing to shoot her back to the first place she was at.
BB Wolf (to himself): What the hell is she up to.
As she flew over again, she one last time struck the ground with her yo-yos so that it knocked all the stone in the spot out of her way. When she landed, she waited a couple of second then shot herself back up wards with another stream of water. That stream was angled differently though with more height instead of distance. She wound out just above the central area as the wolf stepped onto the central area. When he did, she smirked and shot ribbons of water from her body into the four destroyed areas around the wolf.
With that, an entanglement of thorny vines shot up from the ground around the wolf and extended into the air. The wolf was trapped in the tall vines that were formed. Cherill placed her hand down to stop the vines as she fell toward them. At the same time, the top of the entanglement became solid wood. Cherill lied down atop the plant she created and looked down at the wolf from over the side with a smile in her face as she held her chin with her fists and swung her legs back and forth like a child.
BB Wolf: What the hell! I can't get out.
Cherill: Of course. If you had paid more attention to your surroundings you would have realized that you were standing over seeds for a vine tree. I noticed that they connected to the center with four equal points surrounding it while I was surveying the field earlier. Seeing as you are cocky and stupid, I figured it would be easy for you to fall for it. Now, will you apologize for all the trouble you have caused?
BB Wolf: Hell no! You couldn't beat me in a real fight, you sneaky little bitch
Cherill: Oh my, we can't allow that kind of language. *giggles*
The wolf was losing health by the second and no matter how much he struggled, he couldn't break free. At that moment a leaf emerged from the top of the plant and lifted Cherill into the air. It flew away from the plant and then descended Cherill to the ground like an elevator. When she reached an area close to the ground she hopped off and landed feet first onto the ground as she walked toward the wolf.
Cherill: This is your last chance, will you apologize?
BB Wolf: NO! I will not apologize.
Cherill: Too bad.
With that Cherill swung her yo-yos forward and had the strings wrap around the wolf's neck. That's when the wolf noticed that the strings were made out of metal. The wolf tried to apologize, but she pulled the yo-yos back, snapping the wolf's head off and dropping his HP to 0. Cherill had won the matchup, but the wolf didn't disappear.
Cherill: Why is he still here? That doesn't make sense.
The vampires were happy that Cherill won and cheered as they ran out to greet her.
Cherill: Don't players usually disappear after you beat them?
The vampires stopped cheering at that moment when they noticed that The Big Bad Wolf was still there even though his HP hit 0. It didn't make any sense. It turns out that The Big Bad Wolf actually did die, but no one would figure out why until much later in the journey. For that time being though, Cherill and the vampires shrugged off their thoughts and had a small party in the Mid Village before returning to their lives. For the victory, Cherill received 50 melos and was allowed to keep the cloak that she borrowed from one of the vampires.
