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?


9. Crossed Swords

Lewis blinked as he tried to right his blurry vision. As always, they had found an inn to stay for the night. No rude awakening from Adrianna? He sat up and looked out of the window to see the sun hanging high in the middle of the sky.

Usually, Adrianna had them up at the crack of dawn. He looked around to see that she was nowhere to be found.

“Hey, what happened to Adrianna?” Nina had also woken up.

Mike grunted and rolled over.

“She went out,” he mumbled, “I have all your new armour.”

“But why would she just leave?” Lewis questioned.

“Just be thankful we’re having a day off,” Nina stretched, “who knows when we’ll get another one.”

She glanced over at Buttercup who appeared to still be sleeping soundly, curled up in the foetal position. Nina smiled then got up.

“I think I might go back to the first floor, see if anything needs doing. Any of you guys wanna come?” She made her bed as Mike sent everyone their armour.

“I’m staying here,” Mike rolled over, “I haven’t slept properly in ages.”

“I’ll come.” Lewis stretched his back out and equipped his new armour along with Nina.

As soon as it was on, the two stared at themselves in awe. It wasn’t just armour, it was a full on outfit. Nina’s outfit consisted of a black pleated skirt, black thigh-high socks, black boots and a sort of dress which opened at the front to reveal the skirt underneath. The armour on top was silver with a symbol over her heart. It was two swords, one black, one that same deep green, crossed over each other.

Lewis’s, on the other hand, had black trousers, t-shirt, and coat with green trim. He too had black boots and silver armour (underneath his coat, of course) with the two crossed swords over his heart.

Adrianna hadn’t bought them armour. She had bought them uniforms.
