What if you found yourself inside a game? Lewis and thousands of others found themselves inside the online MMORPG: Swordsmaster. The thing is, there is no reviving, no multiple lives; if you die in-game, you die in real life. Lewis soon learns that the only way to be free is to beat the game, and that can't be done alone. Can you really trust someone you hardly know?


15. A Good Person

Crystajean pawed at the bathroom door. As soon as the guild returned to the inn, Adrianna had shut herself in there and locked the door. They had now been back for almost an hour and the girl hadn’t made a noise, despite the pleading and knocking her team had provided.

“Come on, bubs, you can’t stay in there forever.” Nina leant her forehead against the door.

There was no reply.

“Do you think she’s okay, Mike?” Buttercup looked over at the boy, eyes pricking with tears.

“I don’t know.” He shook his head sadly, “I had no idea that she was in a guild before she found me on one of the routes. I always assumed that TRIBUNA was the only guild she had ever been part of.”

“I wonder what that guy was going to say, though…” Lewis put a hand on his chin in thought.

“Whatever it was, it must have been pretty bad to get her that angry. I think it’s best if we don’t ask her about it.” Mike glanced towards the door and watched as Nina slid down to sit with the little bear, Akane flitting to sit on her shoulder.

“But… but Adi’s a good person, right?” Buttercup hugged Pixie.

No one answered. They all just sat in silence, none of them able to truthfully answer the question.

“She took us in when we had nowhere else to go,” Nina said quietly, her voice empty of emotion, “Rosie and I were lost and weak when she found us. She saw us sitting out on the streets one night and asked our names and checked if we were okay. We were starving and cold, of course. She gave us some food and paid for a room at the nearest inn and asked for nothing in return. I wanted to pay her back, so the two of us joined the guild. She helped us get stronger and she treated Rosie as if she were her own sister.”

“Wow, that doesn’t sound like the Adrianna I know…” Lewis trailed off.

“What do you mean?” Mike stared at him, “She saved your life didn’t she, you ungrateful little shit?”

She had? Lewis didn’t remember… Oh. Wait. That night in the forest, the first time he ever saw the girl. He hung his head, ashamed that he hadn’t remembered that act of kindness.

“Good or evil, she probably won’t be coming out of there until we’re all fast asleep, so I suggest we go do that now.” Mike rubbed his eyes.

“Yeah, it’s been a long day.” Nina stood up reluctantly and walked over to her own bed.

They all changed out of their uniforms and into their sleepwear. Crawling into bed, they slowly started to drift off, remembering how tired they were from all the walking they had done that day.
