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?


5. Night Time

When they returned, the rest of TRIBUNA were waiting outside the inn they stayed in the night before. The sky was black, and the hazy line of the Milky Way stretched above their heads. Adrianna looked furious.

She stormed towards him.

“What time do you call this?” She shoved him against the wall, pulling out her sword and holding it to his throat.

“I’m sorry, I was the one who said we should stay longer; it’s my fault.” Buttercup clasped her hands over her heart and bent her head.

Adrianna place her sword slowly back in its sheath. She placed an arm around the small girl and stared daggers at Lewis, as if it was his fault.

“Get yourself inside, Loo roll.” She spat.

As if getting called Loo wasn’t bad enough…

He walked inside and ordered a drink. He allowed himself to slump across the counter. Why did Adrianna hate him so much?

“You okay?”

He looked up to see Nina slide onto the stool beside him.

“Why is Adrianna like that?” He sat up.

“Well, she’s just a bit cynical is all.”

“But why, though?”

“She was pretty cynical to begin with, who knows why. It got worse later. Another guild, called The Bloodlust, decided they wanted to be the ones to clear the game and get rich and famous.” Nina explained.

“So, she’s making sure I’m not a spy, or something?”

“Pretty much. She means well, but she doesn’t really think about how her words can affect people.” She smiled sadly.

As frightening as Adrianna was, everyone seemed to think that she was all soft inside. He would just have to see for himself. It was hard to believe, but if they all believed it…

“Oh, yeah, are you doing… okay?” Lewis looked over at her.

“I’m okay.” Her voice was quiet but didn’t shake once, “Crying isn’t exactly going to help her now.”

“Well, if you ever did want to talk… you know…”

She laughed sadly.


With that, the two headed back up to the room for an early night. One by one the other members of TRIBUNA crept in and slipped into their own beds.
