A/N: Hi! Welp, I guess I should explain. This is a AU where the Guardians are video game characters in an MMORPG (massive-multiplayer-online-role-playing-game) called The Game. So yeah. I dunno, I guess I've just always wanted to write/read a story like this but you never see them anywhere! D: So only naturally I would take it upon myself to write one.

It was a message.
Weird. He hasn't even talked to anyone yet, let alone create a character so he found it extremely odd to get a message already. It said:
