Elements of Adventure
Rebecca and Sara sit across from each other in the diner, munching on their chickencow burgers. One of the few times that Sara had her helm off was when she ate.
The first time Rebecca saw Sara's face she blushed at how unexpectedly pretty the knight really is. Sara has sparkly blue eyes, ivory skin, pink lips and dark brown hair made into a single braid going down her back. When she wears her helm she uses a pin to coil the braid onto her head.
"So, Rebecca" says the knight. "I was thinking that in order to get Captain Rolith's attention we'd talk to Sir Valence. He usually has some quests that, if someone can pull off, get a lot of attention."
"W-wait" Rebecca stutters. "Are you saying that these quests are extremely difficult?"
"Well they're not easy." Sara sighs. "Right now he's concerned that the sneevils are taking important resources from Oaklore. I talked to him the morning before I met you and I think this issue is worth looking into."
"Well I guess if we team up we should be fine, right?"
"That's what I think. Speaking of which, I took some of your gold and bought you a sword and a ring."
"Huh!" Rebecca looks flabbergasted. "You just took my money!"
"These are investments you would've had to make anyway!" Sara defends.
"Well I guess you're right, but please ask next time." She sighs.
"I'll show you where the shop is so you can go there yourself, capish?"
After checking out the shop the two are walking over to Sir Valence.
"Ah! Hello ladies." He greets. "Would you mind looking into a little sneevil problem for me?"
"Actually" Sara replies. "We were just going to ask you about that." Rebecca nods in agreement.
"Well honey" Sir Valence continues. "I need you to check out the treefort for me." He hands Sara a map. "I need you to go through to the box office and see if they have anything from Oaklore and you need to figure out what their goals in the area are."
"No problem." Says Sara, and the two turn around and follow the map to the treefort.
Rebecca and Sara stop and look at the massive structure in front of them. The gate is surrounded by boxes, which look like they could've come from Oaklore. There are two sneevils guarding the door; the pair runs up to them and takes them out easily.
"I recognize these boxes." says Sara. "I bet those sneevils snuck into Oaklore and took them."
"I wonder where they dump the contents…" Rebecca continues. "Sneevils are never interested in the contents of a box; they just like to hoard the empty ones."
"How much do you know about sneevils?" questions Sara.
"Quite a lot since I ran into them all the time during my travels." Rebecca answers.
"Well, let's go in." says Sara. She opens the ratty door and Rebecca follows her in.
The two girls are immediately attacked by three sneevils, they finish them off quickly. They then collect all the gold off the sneevils and climb up the ladder to the second floor.
Two more sneevils come at them and follow the same fate as the last three.
On the third floor Rebecca and Sara are splitting up the gold they got off the two sneevils laying at their feet. When they finish they climb the ladder on to a totally new floor. On this floor there are two boxer sneevils guarding the door strait ahead of them and two on each path to the side.
All six boxers come running at the knight and the adventurer, they're quite a bit tougher to take down than their previous friends. The two defeat all the sneevils but don't come out without some battle-damage of their own.
The two girls walk up to the door and knock. They hear a gruffly voice on the other side.
The two look at each other and neither knows what to say.
"I-uh..." Rebecca says in a gruffly voice. "Need to get more boxes, be right back."
They back away from the door.
"How are we gonna get that password?" Whispers Sara.
"Let's find a sneevil around here and make it tell us." Rebecca replies. She walks to the right to find a sneevil, and Sara follows.
A large group of sneevils, boxers and arcas come running toward them. Sara, using her legendary magma blade and wearing her ring of the keep; and Rebecca, using her aurum blade and wearing her deep water ring, fight off the hoard as best as they can.
When only one arca is left Rebecca marches up to the snivelling creature and puts the point of her sword to its skinny neck.
"Tell us the secret password, or die." She says in a monotone voice.
"A-a-alright" Stutters the arca. "I-it's Mr. T. Chiapet…please don't kill me!"
Rebecca whacks the arca in the head with her aurum and walks in the direction of the door, while Sara collects the gold off of the fallen creatures.
The adventurer and the knight knock on the door again, and again a gruffly voice asks for the password.
"Mr. T. Chaipet" Rebecca grunts.
"Good…good, now do da suber secret knock."
Rebecca and Sara look at each other with confused expressions.
"I…uh" Sara grunts. "Gotta empty all this stuff outta boxes first, be right back."
Once out of hearing distance from the door Sara whispers. "Are we going to do the same thing as before?"
"Ya" Rebecca replies. "We only have the left path to go down this time."
"I'm surprised" Sara frowns. "I really didn't think that a group of sneevils could come up with a security system this advanced."
"It is surprising, yes, but all it really means is more work for us…" Rebecca replies.
The two walk down the left path and are almost immediately bombarded with the green dwarf-like creatures. They fight their way through them like before, and when only one is left, begging for his life, they force him to come to the door with them. This way, they won't miss anything.
"Who's sare?" comes the grunt from behind the door.
"Mr. T. Chiapet" replies the shaking sneevil, as Sara presses her legendary magma blade into his back.
"Good, good…now do the suber secret knock." They hear the gruffy voice again.
The sword presses harder into the sneevil's back, shacking and crying, he does the secret knock perfectly.
"Wow, best knock I sounded in a time!" exclaims the sneevil, Rebecca and Sara roll their eyes at the terrible grammar. The door opens and the two girls burst in, the sneevil runs in the opposite direction. At first the dumb creatures look at the pair and mumble.
"Those are some tall sneevils!" says one.
"And surprisingly curvy!" exclaims the other. The box manager looks frustrated with the two boxers and smacks them in the head.
"They're human's stupids!" he yells.
"OH!" they exclaim. "Should we attack them?" the box manager sighs, and the boxers take the hint. They run at the pair, prepared to attack, but get defeated easily.
By the time Rebecca and Sara look up, the box manager is gone; they figure he climbed up the ladder to the above floor.
They look at each other and nod, both sure that this will be the final stage in the quest. The knight and the adventurer climb the ladder to find two boxer sneevils and the box-lord, who was about three times larger than the average sneevil. The box-lord motions for them to attack, and as soon as they run at Sara and Rebecca they get taken down with ease.
Cornered, the box-lord gets a panicked expression and takes his dagger, crafty as he is, he runs up to Sara, who dodges his attack, then he throws the dagger at an unsuspecting Rebecca and gets her in the shoulder. Rebecca yelps and reaches for her wound, when Sara stops her. She grabs Rebecca's arm. "Don't pull it out!" she yells. Rebecca grimaces, but listens to the knight.
Sara then turns her attention to the box-lord, who's grin turns to a look of concern when he sees just how pissed off she is.
The knight runs up to the creature, slices both of his shoulders with her blade and punches him in the stomach. She twists her fist and he screams in pain.
When the box-lord is on the ground Sara stands over him, with her weapon to his chest she bluntly asks: "What are you goons planning?" the box-lord stutters and tries to look away from the sword. "Answer me!" she yells, thrusting the point of her legendary magma blade further into the oversized sneevil.
The sneevil finally composes himself enough to muster an answer. "The K-king wants his special box." There's a look of fear in his eyes.
"Special box…you don't mean?" Sara makes an aggravated growl and kicks the box-lord on the side of the head. She gently grabs Rebecca's arm. "We have to get back to Oaklore! Now!"
