KuroHi91: So, chapter two is here. I would like to thank my friend for writing this chapter, he is the base for Yuuki's character, thus this is from his point of view.
Yuuki: I'm lazy and easily distracted, so don't have high expectations :P
KuroHi91: Jeeze, have a little faith in yourself. :D
Yuuki: Never! And isn't this chapter one but from a different point of view?
KuroHi91: Ya, but I say it counts as a chapter so it does! Muahahaha! :D
KuroHi91: Brilliant! Now on with the story! PS: review Responses at the end.
Disclaimer: I do not own ½ Prince or Second Life.
I exited the boys locker room of the boxing gym; today was a good day of training. I loved boxing, it was what I was most committed to. I began to walk home, my home was right across the street. I quickly stepped through the door and tried to dash to my room. I had almost reached the door when I was pulled back by my mother.
"I told you only two hours at the gym. Its been almost six hours," I checked the time, it was almost nine. I quickly remembered that I was supposed to receive a package today.
I turned to my mother, "Where's my package?"
With a sigh she replied, "What will I do with you? The package is in your room."
I quickly ran in my room and opened the package; Jess had suggested this new game to me. I wasn't too psyched about most games but I trusted Jess's judgement. I lay down on my bed and put on the visor console.
My body stood straight in a dark room a few seconds later lights flashed on in a checkered pattern. The pattern seemed to go on endlessly, even the ground was checkered. I turned in surprise when I heard a voice announce, "Welcome to Second Life."
I looked up to see what seemed to be an NPC. "Be prepared, we are about to scan your physical features as well as your vocal waves." I stood as the orbs began to scan my body.
"You are now ready to begin the creation of your character! I must warn you though you have only one chance to create your character, once you are done your race, name and looks cannot be changed." As I nodded to inform her I understood, lights quickly flashed past me.
I quickly turned to find different races around me. "You are to choose a race first. Races are divided into humans, elves, dark elves, dwarfs, celestials, elementals, and beasts," the girl announced.
There were only two that caught my interest, "May I see myself as a dark elf and a celestial?" The other races disappeared. The celestial looked similar to me except his hair was much longer than mine and his pupils were white.
I looked closely at the dark elf, his skin was almost grey it was more of a dark silver. He had pointed ears and his eyes were yellow. His hair seemed more of my length, barely reaching his shoulders, and was just as white as mine. There was one long strand that was distinguished from the rest. It was tied in a ponytail, flowing over my shoulder and touching the bottom of my chest. I looked at the NPC, "I would like to be the dark elf."
The NPC nodded, "Would you like any changes?" I shook my head. The NPC clapped her hands together and I flew into my character.
Soon, I was falling down a black void. Once I landed I slowly rose and looked around. It seemed so realistic, I could feel the warm summer air along with a calming sweet smell. I took a step forward only to be ambushed by multiple girls chasing someone.
"-75 HP." I jumped up in anger, "What the hell? I was only here for 2 seconds and I was trampled by a bunch of girls!" I heard a guy laughing at me across the street, my anger rose and I ran at him. I punched him in the face, sending him flying away and disappearing in a pillar of light.
System Notice: Player Yuuki has killed Player Jerkwad, Yuuki has lost 10 fame. I start stomping away in anger and mumbling to myself, "Freakin' bastard dares to laugh at me."
I continued walking off until I reached a forest. I quickly glance around only to find a small blob, above it a small label read, "Flesh Eating Slime." I begin to poke at it and said, "You hardly look dangerous." It suddenly clamped its mouth around my arm, biting with its sharp teeth. I stare at it momentarily. It looks up at me.
"AHHHHHHHH!" I yelled as I quickly start slamming it against the ground and against a tree. Above the slime it repeatedly reads "-5 HP." Finally the slime died, leaving behind a pouch.
I picked it up and turn to find a swarm of slimes heading towards me. I sweat-dropped and began to run away. After a few seconds, I quickly stop and scratched my head as I realized something.
"Ah... I took boxing for two years." The wind whistled past me as I stood there dumbstruck. I quickly turn to face the slimes and start punching wildly at them while yelling, "You bastards, making me feel scared when I'm much stronger than you!"
I stood there panting after finishing off the swarm. "I should probably check my stats. Wait how do I do that?" I hear a voice in the background, Attention New Players: To check your stats, simply say '"System." I look around in confusion, "Um... System?" A card frame pops up showing my stats along with level and experience. I was now at level 7. I looked around for more mobs until I saw a slime that seemed pretty close, and I began to run towards it.
As I grew closer, the slime seemed to increase in size. It wasn't until I was in front of it that I realized how it towered over me. I looked at the small label above it, "Flesh Eating Slime King." I momentarily stared at it and began to slowly step back. It growled and began chasing me. As I ran I started crying, "Why do all these bad things happen to me!" I continued to run until I saw a new swarm of slimes in front of me. I punched with my left arm, sending a wave of power towards the slimes. "Move the hell out of my way!" I yell.
System Notice: Player Yuuki has learned a new skill: Left Straight. "Oh new skill, perfect timing," I quickly turn to the slime king and yell out, "Left Straight!" Another wave is sent at the slime king, sending it rolling back from the impact. Above it I see the display read, "-100 HP." I jumped above the slime king and started punching him and yelling, "That's right you bastard take that! And that! And that!"
Attention New Players: To defeat a boss you need to use a finishing move. "Oh ok... Left Straight!" With that attack, the boss fell and lay dead on the ground, disappearing soon after. I looked on the ground where it had been and saw an item. They appeared to be hand wrappings.
I quickly equipped them and noticed that they increased my strength. "System," I said, checking my stats. I noticed that I happened to have reached level 10, the level requirement to get a job. I quickly closed the window and strolled off happily to find a job. I finally reached the place and walked in.
"Hello traveler, would you like to change your job?" said the NPC at the counter.
"Yes I would," I responded with a grin.
"Would you like to try out our new job class, it is called brawler. It is based off of martial arts, and was released as an add-on when Second Life was released globally."
"Sure, what do I need to do?"
"Just get 10 bear paws."
I accepted the quest and ran off to the forest once again. As I ran through the forest I continued to look around for bears.
"Where the hell can I find bears?"
I quickly climb a tree in search of the bears, climbing straight up until I reached the very top. Suddenly, I felt piercing eyes stare at me from afar. A bead of sweat rolled down my head as I slowly looked down, seeing a swarm of bears clawing at the tree. Tears began streaming down my face as I clung onto the tree.
"Why do I have such bad luck?" I felt the tree slowly begin to tilt, tilting even further downward every second. It then began to fall, and I jumped off the tree launching myself at the bears. "Bring it on you stupid animals!"
After about an hour of fighting off the bears I stood there panting, but victorious. I quickly collected my loot which included 12 bear paws and a good amount of bronze coins.
I quickly look at the defeated bears and grin, "Looks like I defeated you all with my BARE HANDS." I began to laugh at my awful pun as I walked off to change my job. After changing my job, I exited the game. Looking at the time, I realized it was 5:00 AM.
I ran down the stairs in a hurry, grabbing a quick breakfast and headed to the boxing gym. I practiced for a little until around 6:30AM. I ran back home in a rush and began to get ready. If I took too long, I would miss my bus. I dashed out the door to the bus stop and saw the bus already leaving.
"God damn it!" I screamed in a rage. I kicked the bus stop pole and looked as my foot began to swell. I started screaming in pain and hopping on one foot. Everyone began to look at me like I was some sort of idiot. I noticed the bus make a stop a couple of streets ahead, I quickly dashed at it.
The bus soon left just when I was only a street behind. I continued to chase it but luck was obviously not on my side as the bus didn't make a second stop. After chasing it for a while I realized I was only a couple streets from the school. I slowed down to a walk and began to catch my breath. As I kept walking I noticed a friend of mine up ahead.
"Yo, Jess!" I jogged towards her as she turned around.
"Sup Alex, did ya get Second Life yet?" I nodded my head.
"Just finished getting my job last night," I responded.
Jess grinned, "Me too."
She began to zone out and think to herself the way she usually does so I asked, "What's your username?"
She seemed to snap out of it and responded, "BlackShadow. Yours?"
"Yuuki. Add me tonight, I'll get some of the others to join us and we can create a party." After making it to school I went to my usual classes, where I fell asleep. I had the tendency to do that even though I wasn't tired. After school, I walked over to Jess and Andy and heard that they were talking about Second Life.
I casually joined in and asked Andy, "What's your Username?"
He stood up and took a strange stance as he plainly said, "Andy."
Jess and I sweat-dropped she then asked, "Andy as in your name?"
He screamed out, "NO!"
He then proceeded to lift three fingers, "It has 3 A's." Jess and I collapsed on the ground. Jess quickly stood and smacked Andy over the head.
"You are an idiot, you know that?" Jess scolded him.
Andy smiled brightly and replied, "I know."
Shortly after boxing practice, I logged onto Second Life. I sent a friend request to Andy and Jess and PM'ed them to meet me at the Adventurer's guild. I soon realized I had no actual equipment or health potions so I began to wander off looking for a shop. I soon found one but was annoyed at the amount of girls I had attracted.
I tried to ignore them as I began to buy equipment. I bought a leather vest which was very light and drastically increased my speed. Sadly, it was sleeveless and exposed my stomach and chest. I sighed and took it anyways. I felt the ominous presence of the girls behind me which seemed to only anger me further. I bought two rings, one strength ring, which I put onto my right hand, and one speed ring on my left. To a boxer a quick jab with the left and a powerful hook with the right were essential. That reminded me, I had yet to check the stats on my new skills.
I quickly opened up my character sheet, saying, "System."It opened and I read the description for Left Straight.
Left Straight: A powerful jab with the left hand that sends a wave which can sometimes stun an opponent. Current Level: 4 MP Cost:15
I scanned my other skills and the descriptions.
Right Hook: A strong right punch. Current Level: 2 MP Cost:20
Uppercut: A punch that attacks an opponent from below. It can sometimes cause confusion. Current Level: 1 MP Cost:10
I closedmy character sheet and grinned. I stocked up on some potions as Andy messaged me.
"I'm at the guild where are you?" It read.
"On my way, be there in a sec." I responded, and sent the message.
I walked out of the store, forgetting about the girls following close behind, until I finally saw Andy. I felt tick marks begin to form on my head as I saw more girls surrounding him. I recieved a message from Jess saying "Ok" to my previous message.
I walked next to Andy and we both shook hands. The girls started screaming and sending requests, more tick marks began to appear on my forehead.
"ARGGGH!" I screamed as I sent the crowd flying with a Left Straight. System Notice: Player Yuuki has killed players: ... I ignored the names. Yuuki has lost 100 Fame.
"What the hell are you doing?" I heard someone shout.
I flew to the left as I received a kick in the head.
"OW! Who the..." I began to yell.
I looked towards the person and pointed, "Who the hell are you?"
The person crouched to my level and lifted the mask they had on. "Who else but me, idiot?"
I realized it was Jess, as she replaced her mask and stood up.
"Now would you please add me to the party?"she asked.
O to O: I didn't even realize how similar they were! Wow, I guess it subconsciously made its way into the story since I just read it too. Also, I read that in the original artwork for the novel, doll is seen to have wings. I think that it was changed in the Manhuwa. Also, how was this format? Was it more clear?
ummm: Thank you, although you spelled it wrong.
