Me: Ughhhh I am so mad… =w=

Raven: Why's that? I mean I'm really happy that you're mad, but please tell me why :)

Me: ewe well… I guess it's because I've never been so crazed about a pairing before…. ITS IRRITATING oAo

Aisha: lol well you're a girl it's normal xD

Me: Yes, but it's annoying…. I wish the makers would just tell me what the pairings are D: I don't care if it's one I hate, I'd just scream into a pillow and move on with my life but nooo~ leave everyone in SUSPENSE =w=

Elsword: aren't the pairings pretty obvious?

ME: NO! NOT AT ALL! ELSWORD WAS MADE IN KOREA RIGHT? (isn't it?)

Everyone: Uhhh I think…

Eve: Do all humans get this extreme about pairings?

Chung: *shrugs*

Me: WELL IN THE MANHWA (Korean version of a manga) IM TAKING IT THAT IT'S RAVEN X AISHA? ELSWORD X EVE OR RENA?(well more like EVERYONE x Elsword XD) AND I GUESS CHUNG X RENA OR EVE? (Not sure if that's the actual, but there are WAY too many hints of it being the real couple -.-) BUT IN THE NA VERSION OF THE GAME I'M TAKING IT THAT IT'S ACTUALLY RAVEN X RENA, ELSWORD X AISHA, AND CHUNG X EVE OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT? IN THE MANGA I HAVE NO IDEA…. SO WHAT ARE THE ACTUAL PAIRINGS!?

Raven: Wow, it's just pairings settle down.

Me: =w= I wish I could, but it's irritating to not know… Plus on some actual pics drawn by the makers, when they're advertising a costume, there are sometimes different pairings or something…

Everyone: *nods but not caring*

Me: OH well… So I've concluded that the ACTUAL PAIRINGS ARE~

Rena x some phoru or an elf guy

Elsword x his sword

Aisha x Allegro

Eve x Nasod King

Chung x Echo

Raven x a Pong

.w.

Raven: ? WHY WOULD I LIKE A PONG?

Me: You're a pedo bear aren't you? .w.

Raven: NO I'm NOT A- I give up T.T *walks away*

Raven's POV

I looked at the ring closely, remembering that day. The day I proposed to Seris. We were going to be wed, but then- I found out her secret and she decided to kill me. I brushed the design on the ring with my fingers, it still looked brand new.

Aisha was bleeding heavily! I quickly ripped off pieces of my uniform and wrapped the cloth around some of her wounds, but she continued bleeding heavily! She needed medical attention, and fast!

I ran as fast as I could, shadow stepping a few times. I tired myself out, but continued running through the woods, catching myself as I tripped on curved up roots. Aisha's warm blood was beginning to trickle down my hands, I could feel it.

Eventually, I made it to my cabin. I was out of breath, but I rushed inside despite my tired state. Why was my window smashed up? I looked around the cabin; there was so much evidence that a fight had taken place in here. I laid Aisha onto the bed, not caring about how much it bloodied up the sheets.

Where was I going to get a first aid kit well equipped enough to treat these wounds? I grabbed some of my extra clothes and tried to stop the bleeding as well as I could. Where on earth did Aisha get enough power to last this long? I continued wrapping her up. I looked to the clock; so far it had been thirty four minutes, and Elsword did say that we were to meet outside my cabin in an hour. Can Aisha last that much longer?

Through all of these events, there was still one thing on my mind. Why did Aisha have Seris engagement ring? I have the same exact one. I abstracted it from my life as soon as Seris had died, but I continued to keep it locked in my dresser drawer.

. . . . .

Chung's POV

I walked through the forest. Eve must be gone by now, what am I supposed to do? I continued walking with a slump to my back, sighing through the quietness of the mighty forest, full of green thickets of thorny-… What am I saying? Wow, I must be bored. I shone my flashlight in all directions. This is creepy; it feels like any minute now something is going to jump out and grab me.

"There's one!" I heard a sharp whisper.

I turned around. A GIANT gleaming lime net was flying STRAIGHT at me. Before I could respond, I found myself tangled in a mess of rope. I dropped my flashlight and it rolled away from me. I looked up as I struggled. I couldn't see who the shadow was in this darkness, but I had a feeling that I knew. "RENA?"

I bit at the rope with my teeth until I created a hole large enough for me to squeeze through.

"Just give me your pass and I promise I won't need to hurt you." She growled at me with a menacing look in her glowing green eyes.

I looked at her, not showing my fear that is- if she could even see me. "No." This was obviously going to turn into a fight; there was no way my Pikachung power was going to work now. I slid out of the net and stood on my feet, readying my cannon for battle. I hope that I won't have to rely on my vision for this battle.

She launched her gleaming red arrows in a fury, still unable to use her special skills. I dodged as many as I could, but some flew right at me, luckily my armor kept me safe. I glided across the field and used my Combo Siege to attack her, aiming for her shining green eyes, but she swiftly back flipped away from my pursuit.

"Give me the key!" She continued to shout and launch arrows at me through the darkness.

"No!"

"CANNON STRIKE!" I stomped at the ground with my canon, reloaded my gun, and luckily slammed Rena into a tree. I tried to keep her there as best as I could. I thought it was over, so I took a breath of relief, but unfortunately, Rena had slithered out of my grasp and kneed me in the gut.

I coughed in pain, but smashed at her with my cannon again, causing the ground to rumble.

"You should just give up little Pikachu! You're not going to win."

"I'll never give up to you that easily!" I lifted my cannon into the air and swatted it at her, but she ducked just in time, and slid on the ground, and right past me. I tried to look back, but Rena had briskly taken advantage of my blind spot and kicked at me with a gliding kick, following it with a twig shot.

The sharp arrow of wood spiked through my armor. I could feel it stab at my skin. I flinched in pain, but did my best not to show it. I have to negate this feeling! I yanked the arrow out of my back, leaving a perfect aperture for more of Rena's arrows to come at. I hope she didn't notice.

"You're never going to win if this keeps up. I have all the arrows in the world!"

But not all the mana in the world! I thought quickly. She's vaunting on about herself, but I think those words are meant to hide her fear! She knows she can't keep going while she's still inside the academy boundaries! I used my combo siege and luckily hit her once again. She held her gut in pain, one eye closed in anger, her teeth clenched together. She was tiring out! She switched to her sword and slashed at me, but my reflexes were too quick. I kneed her in the gut and she coughed some blood onto my armor. "I'm not going to lose like this." She growled under her breath. "This is too quick for me."

"It's okay to lose sometimes." I tried to calm her down.

"Just…" She sighed, holding her gut, and dropping to her knees, "Just take me back to that cell and let's restart this process, shall we?" She fell down with a loud thump. My flashlight shone right at her worn out body. Wow- did I really do that much damage?

I slung Rena across my back, getting ready for another walk. Elsword told us to meet at Raven's cabin right?

I ran back towards the cabins, Rena slumbering in pain. I had to get her some medical treatment!

Elsword's POV

What was all that noise? I looked around trying to find the source, or at least the direction, but it sounded too far away. I shrugged it off and continued heading straight. Where was Aisha? It said that she should've been here? Or was that dot on the screen actually Rena? Maybe Eve? I readied my sword just in case. "Got any tips for me Cornwell?" I whispered.

"Not at the moment dear boy, it's so dark, how can you possibly see anything?"

"Then shed some light will ya?" I hissed.

"Fine Fine." At that moment, Cornwell began to glow neon red. I wish I never asked for light! In front of me was a GIANT group of nasods! I hadn't realized it, but I was surrounded! I looked around myself, making a full 360 degree circle. There were red eye lights, and robots clinging onto the trees everywhere, they all stared directly at me! What were these nasods? I've never seen nasods like these! They looked like monsters you'd find in horror movies!

"A-Anything I-I should remember Cornwell?"

"Don't use fire! Don't use any fire at all! You'll burn down the whole forest if you do! Use the darkness around you for now! That's the only element on your side at the moment."

"Well sure, when I'm hiding from opponents."

"You idiot, darkness isn't just for hiding it's-"

Cornwell was interrupted by a brief 'humph'. I looked up to a tree, there was Eve, sitting cross legged and staring straight at me with her orange eyes. "You are an idiot to have followed me, Rank SS Elsword. My army is almost complete and I cannot have you warning the citizens."

Army? Didn't Eve have enough nasods before?

"These nasods are much better than the previous ones you had fought; they are programmed with YOUR battle strategies, you and your friends. I am sorry, but now I must delete you since I no longer need you." She jumped to the ground and looked straight at me, "ATTACK!"

Several demon nasod robots launched their selves at me; they were followed by others, and more, and more! "Cornwell! What do I do?"

"You aren't this clueless, don't let the pressure get to you! You know how to fight this!"

I took a deep breath and concentrated on the fight. "Sword Blasting!" Cornwell tripled and attacked at the targets in front of me. Of course it wasn't enough! I need to escape and warn the others! I repeatedly used my Rolling slash to get through, ""Outta my way!"

A giant spike stabbed at the ground beneath my feet. Eve jumped right down after it and held her hand up into the air, motioning for her monsters to stop. They snarled, continuing to creep towards us, Eve clamped her hand shut, and the creatures backed away, whimpering. "I will be your opponent."

"Out of my way Eve." My voice rumbled. There was no way that I was going to fight Eve.

"You have no choice in the matter Elsword. You will fight me. If you win, I will allow you to go free. If I win I shall kill you."

"Eve, there's no way I-"

"Code Crying Angel is now complete. Eve Battle Mode, Activated."

Aisha's POV

"Mmmf…." I mumbled as I rubbed my head and sat upright. My eyes widened. What happened? The last thing I remember is that I was bleeding out in the forest. My eyes scanned my surroundings, I wasn't in the forest anymore. This looked more like Elsword's cabin? "Elsword?" I looked around with a bit of enthusiasm to my voice.

I heard footsteps coming closer. I looked through the archway to another room. There was Raven! I shuffled away from him as he came closer, he clenched something in his fists, was he going to hurt me again? I scooted back into a wall; Raven sat down next to me and started to pat my forehead with a cold and wet towel. "It's good that you're finally awake." He smiled and dabbed my head.

He couldn't be trusted, could he? I swatted his hand away. "Stay away from me." I growled, just before I noticed my arms, shoulders and legs were bandaged up. Did he do this? "Did you do this?" I looked from bandage to bandage.

Raven nodded, I looked up to his sincere golden eyes. Don't trust those eyes… Don't trust them, they'll hurt you eventually. I sighed and stood up, "What do you want with me? You must've saved me for a reason."

"What? No, why would you say that?" He was a bit surprised.

"Don't act so innocent!" I bared my teeth, I was still so angry that Raven had betrayed me. "I'm going now." I started for the door, but Raven caught my arm just in time.

"Wait! Aisha, I'm sorry. I was just doing my job."

"Your job is more important than my feelings!?" (What my parents would say at times like this, 'It brings food on the table and keeps us away from our miserable lives' =w=)

"No! Well… I'm sorry, I was just- scared, I guess. Scared of my boss."

"You don't think I was scared too?"

"Aisha, how can I make it up to you?"

I paused for a moment and looked away. "You could marry Seris."

"What?" I looked at her a bit confused.

"I said you could marry Seris~" My voice changed.

Raven let go of my arm.

"Why so scared Raven?" My hair grew longer, and changed to a bright pink. I looked back at him with a grin to my face. "I missed you so much and this is how you treat me?"

"S-Seris?"

Seris POV

I missed you dearly Raven. I can't believe you replaced me with another, even after you promised me that you could fall in love with no one else. I shook my head and sighed. In a flash we teleported into a meadow in the darkness of the forest, Aisha's staff flashed into my hand. "It's taken me awhile to get used to your friends power, but I did this just so we could be together. Aren't you happy?"

He looked at me, still a bit surprised.

"What did you do to Aisha?!"

"What? You're not happy yet?" I pouted.

Raven's POV

Seris… Her blue eyes, her long pink hair, everything was right about her. It was HER! Why is she here? I thought she died, where did Aisha go? My mind was racing questions.

"I can't believe you Raven!" Tear glimmered in her eyes, "I saved your life! I saved you! I missed you so much! I wanted to be together! But you fell in love with that Rena person! Even though she looks like me that's no excuse!" She held up Aisha's staff. "I hate you! I'll kill you just like you killed me! I'll find someone else that looks just like you and give you a taste of your own medicine!"

Me: WTH? THERES A NEW ELSWORD CHARACTER NAMED ARA!? WTF! NO MORE CHARACTERS SERIOUSLY DX (more characters = more pairings =w=)
