“Ah, just chilling with my best friend, playing video games is the best,” Emily yelps as she dies once again in BattleBlock Theater.
“Yeah, well, I agree,” I smile as I collect the last gem of the stage. “But, this is a teamwork game. Focus. I want to fully complete it. Find everything.”
“I know. I’m trying. My controller is having problems.”
“Oh, blame it on the controller. Real nice. You aren’t focusing.”
“Am I that bad of a liar?”
“This game is hard,” she pouts.
I laugh, “It is going to get a lot harder.”
“Just, give me a little more time to figure everything out.”
Emily and I have spent a lot of time playing video games on this trip. It is unhealthy, no doubt, but we are kids wanting to have fun. The BTS boys have a hard practice schedule, so we have to fill the time in other ways. Nari loves us having free time. We make her lunch and dinner when the time comes. She loves us so much for it. She loves having company.
“Shit,” I mumble as my character explodes and quickly respawns.
“Hm, slipping?” Emily teases.
“No, hand cramp.”
“I actually believe that.”
“You should,” I let go of the controller and massage my hand. “How long have we been playing?”
“Just a few hours. Need a break?”
“Yes. Just a few minutes. Get some drinks and snacks. Then dive right back in.”
“Sounds like a good plan,” Emily pauses the game. “Are we going to bear this game this week?”
“Maybe not this week. Let’s shoot for this trip.”
“It’s a deal. We will do it. All the way to completion.”
“And that’s the spirit.”
Hope you liked it! :D
