“Ooooooo! Snake skin!! I could get lots of things made from snake skin!” You said excitedly. “And 10 MAHI!!! If I kill 10 snakes can make 100 Mahi in a day!
“No time to celebrate now O/N, there are more.” Butterfli3 said calmly.
You whipped around, holding the dagger up again.
The vipers seemed to be coming in swarms and as soon as you killed one another one would appear.
Butterfli3 had to jump in a few times and finish one off that was sliding in to take a bite from the side of you but before long you had almost reached your 10 snake goal.
You were about to take out another viper when Butterfli3 quickly whipped his chain out and shattered the snake instantly.
“Butterfli3?…why did you…?”
“Get behind me O/N and stay close.” He suddenly said lowly.
“Why?? What is it?” You asked.
Just then you heard a growl and look over to the bushes nearby.
You could see the red eyes of a wolf.
“Is that a wolf?” You asked as you sidled in behind Butterfli3.
“Yes, and there are a few.” He replied quietly, still looking around.
You glanced to your left and right; then behind you.
“Uh…Butterfli3…I think we’re surrounded…” you said in a shaky voice.
“Don’t be afraid O/N,” he said gently, placing his left hand around behind him to hold you against his back, his sword in his right hand. “I won’t let anything happen to you.”
You gripped your hands into Butterfli3’s cloak and pulled yourself against his back.
“Come.” Butterfli3 suddenly commanded and almost as if on cue the first wolf jumped out.
It charged straight for Butterfli3 but was decapitated instantly so the next 2 wolves tried their luck and got the same treatment; all the while Butterfli3 kept his left arm wrapped around behind himself, holding your body against his back as he fought a pack of wolves single handed.
“Butterfli3!!! Behind you!” You screamed as you looked back and saw 5 wolves stalking up behind the two of you.
He stepped lightly around you and in one strike took out all 5 wolves.
“Ok so NOW I know how he levels up so quickly!” You thought as he effortlessly took out multiple wolves at a time.
As the last wolf was taken care of Butterfli3 let you go and turned to face you, lifting his hood so he could look you over properly.
“Are you ok, O/N?” He asked as his eyes scanned your health bar then your face.
“I’m 100% fine thanks to you.” You replied dreamily. “God I think I’m in love!” You thought. “Can I just say…that was so amazing! You just took out a wolf pack single handedly… like, actually single handedly as in, with ONE hand!”
Butterfli3 blushed. “Oh…it’s not that amazing.” He replied with a small smile.
“I beg to differ!” You replied with a snort.
“Uh, anyway O/N, it’s getting late, we should maybe head back now…what time is it in the real world?”
You checked your menu.
“W-would you like to get dinner with me?” Butterfli3 asked. “We can eat at Dawn Restaurant.”
“Sure!” You replied happily. “I have enough money for food!”
“Uh, I was going to buy you dinner….” He said, averting his eyes and scratching his cheek shyly.
“So …like…a kinda…in game… umm date?” You asked shyly.
“Ummm…yeah…if…if that’s ok?” Butterfly replied softly.
“Oh my god…oH MY GOD. OH MY GOD A DATE WITH BUTTERFLI3?!“
“Yes.” You said bluntly.
You didn’t know what else to say.
“R-really?!” Butterfli3 responded, slightly shocked. “T-that’s awesome! Umm ok let’s go?”
You smiled stupidly and followed him out of the forest and back across the field to the inn.
“Hey uh, I’m curious though…” You said as you trotted a little to catch up beside him. “Why would you want to have a date with me?”
“Well…” he said softly, “I haven’t had this much fun in a long time…it’s been refreshing hanging out with you and I just wanted to show you how much I like you…before I have to go…”
“Go?” You asked, your heart sinking. “What do you mean by ‘go’?”
“I have to go back to level 43 and take on a particularly hard boss to unlock the next level.” He said sadly. “We were meeting down here a few days ago to discuss how to best tackle the monster.”
“Oh…yeah I remember…” you said glumly.
“The lead guild is called Overthrow Of Fate, Swiftkill is their leader.”
“Oh yes I remember that asshole.” You said coldly. “Wait…hang on…that guild… what do they call it for short?”
“Uh…Overthrow F.” Butterfli3 replied.
“No, no…the acronym would be OOF wouldn’t it?” You said with a smirk.
Butterfli3 grimaced. “Yeah…they don’t like being called OOF, hence why they call themselves Overthrow F.”
You cackled. “Oh this is just too good, is Swiftkill going to come back to get you before the fight with the monster? God I hope so, I am so going to give him a hard time about being the leader of OOF.”
“I don’t like him either but I have to work with him unfortunately.” Butterfli3 said sadly. “Please don’t make it any harder for me.”
“Ok, ok, for your sake I won’t say anything.” You said, looking at him with a smile.
He looked back at you and smiled gently. “Thank you O/N.”
Everyone watched you as you and Butterfli3 entered the restaurant and the boss gave you a raised eyebrow when he saw you with the player who had caught your interest.
You poked your tongue out at him playfully and he smirked.
You and Butterfli3 had a lovely meal together and chatted about RFO mainly. You found out that he had chosen the username ‘Butterfli3’ because the original username he wanted wasn’t available, he didn’t elaborate any further.
You told him you had decided you wanted to become a merchant with your own shop then swap to blacksmith when you got to a higher level, Butterfli3’s eyes lit up.
“That would be really great if you were a blacksmith!” He said happily, “I would use you for the maintenance of my equipment! What level are you now?”
“Ummm I don’t know? I did get notifications but I just closed them without reading them.” You replied sheepishly.
He walked around the table to beside you and you swiped your menu open, allowing him to scan through your details.
“Oh, you’ve just hit level 4!” He said, “at level 10 you can become a merchant and then level 40 you can swap to blacksmith.”
