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?


12. Shepherds Warning

“While I was gone, I managed to hack out of the game and look at other sites temporarily before I was brought back again.” Adrianna pulled her hair into her signature bunches as she whispered to the others.

“Did you find anything?” Lewis asked, being sure to keep his voice down should anyone hear him.

“Yes,” She nodded, “I found some blogs from the original beta testers of the game. There are ten floors to beat, and apparently there’s a forest on the north side of this floor where you can find animals with special abilities.”

She looked at everyone’s awe-struck faces. She smirked, feeling as if she were on top of the world.

“So are we gonna go, then?” Buttercup hopped from foot to foot in excitement.

“I say we leave first thing tomorrow, before sunrise. It’s quite a trek, and we haven’t been there before so we can’t just teleport.” She placed her hands on her hips and straightened her back.


As one, TRIBUNA sped through the night. It was a new moon, so the only light came from the streetlamps and the fireflies. They didn’t stop until the sun began to peer over the horizon. Lewis looked towards it. The red, morning sun burned against the light blue sky clambering over it.

“Let’s take a quick break.” Adrianna looked to the east horizon as well, shielding her eyes from the light.

Lewis sat down and got out a small bread roll he had been given by their leader for breakfast. It wasn’t much, but it was to stop any of them from developing a stitch in case they should run into trouble. The others did the same.

Once they were finished, they continued in silence. The sky soon turned grey and cloudy. Rain pounded down on them as they struggled on. They were close. They knew it. Every last one of them.
