Red Riding Hood
Genre: Supernatural; Romance
Summary: #6. A Grand Chase version of the classical Little Red Riding Hood only with a twist added. She was on her way to her grandmother's house – only to find something or rather, someone she wasn't expecting. Instead of her grandmother, she was surprised to see a wolf-boy lying on the bed. What's weird for her is that, she felt an attraction to the said boy even when she, herself, is afraid of wolves.
A blond elf stood pacing in front of an old wooden door – her emerald eyes showing worry as she did so. How am I going to ask this? More importantly, will I be granted my request? Thought after thought, the Elven girl grew more nervous. After a few more paces, a voice from a violet-haired girl peeking out of the doorway surprised her,
"Lire, will you just come in and ask Knight Master?" The girl sighed. The elf, Lire, sheepishly nodded. Stepping inside the room, her courage immediately turned back to nervousness. "Uh… G-good morning, K-knight Master!" Lire stuttered. Oh great… Now I'm stuttering!
The woman in red, who was supposedly Knight Master, raised a brow; "Is there a problem, Lire? Arme here told me you wanted to ask for a favor."
"Um… Yes… About that…" Come on, Lire! It's just a question! Don't be a chicken… But, before she could throw another insult to herself, Arme continued for her, "Lire wanted to ask if she can take the week off. You see, her grandmother's sick and has no one there to assist her."
Knight Master pondered for a moment – checking some mission scrolls and things of the like, before answering; "You're lucky that there are no missions for the rest of the month needing your unit. Because of that, you can take your leave."
"Thank you, Knight Master!" Lire smiled, feeling relieved. The red-clothed female nodded, dismissing them.

"You owe me." Arme said once they exited the office. "Yes. I know…"
Turning a corner, silence enveloped the two. A few minutes of not talking made the purple mage fidget with the hem of her skirt. Lire chuckled at this.
"Arme, if you have something to tell me, now is a good time. My room is just at the end of this hall." The aforementioned female looked up at the surroundings and sighed,
"It's just... Be careful." Hearing this, the archer raised a brow. "I heard there's a legend about the forest where your grandmother lives…"
Frightened amethyst eyes met disbelieving yet amused emerald ones, "You actually believe in those? I should have known…" The blond tried to stifle her laughter.
Arme puffed her cheeks at this, "Hey! What's that supposed to mean?"
"Well… I've always thought of you being… scientific or something like that – much like Mari."
"Because you're always thrilled when it comes to science stuff like chemistry and Mari's inventions,"
"Is that all? Haven't you thought about magic being non-scientific or even alchemy? Lire, all of my job classes have nothing to do with science – leave all of that stuff to Mari."
"Honestly, no. I guess I forgot about those facts." Lire averted her gaze to the ground, feeling embarrassed.
Another long silence lapsed. Five rooms later, and they were now in front of Lire's room.
"See you next week…" Arme bid her farewell before walking to who-knows-where.

Two bags sat on top of a bed inside a light green room. One of the bags was seemingly full to the brim with things, while the other was still half-filled.
Hm… Let's see if I'm all packed up and ready to go…
Clothes – check.
Some snacks for the journey – check.
*Water bottles – check.
Pet card – check.
Armor cards – check.
Potion cards – check.
Bow and arrow – check.
Nova composite bow – check.
Extra weapon cards – check.
Looks like that's it… Or am I forgetting one more thing…? The young Nova scanned her room as she contemplated on what item was missing on her list. Emerald eyes landed on a piece of paper lying on the table beside her bed. How about a map?
Lire shook her head and sighed. No… it can't be that. I don't need a map to find grandmother's house. That'd be quite silly as I grew up there.
She scanned the room again – this time, her eyes landed on a weird oblong/diamond shaped device. That's it! I almost forgot about the Chase device! Picking the said object up along with her other things, Lire was ready to go… That was, until…
"Lire! Lire! Liiiiiiire!" A pink haired girl burst through her half-opened door. Said girl had on a pout as she tackled the archer to the ground, "Why didn't you tell me your grandmother was sick? I could be of much help to you had I known it much earlier rather than seeing you about to go!"
Not long after the rose eyed girl said that, a boy with crimson hair and saffron eyes emerged from the doorway…
"Uhm… Sorry Lire." He sheepishly scratched his neck, "I tried to stop her…"
Lire sighed. So much for leaving early…
Yes. It was going to be a long day's trip.
