As I left my rag tag group of so called heroes, I stumbled upon some enemies. They were easy to defeat, if not a bore, with the ol’ moving around turn by turn, and farming “XP” to “Level up” and I guess, hone my skills. I stumbled upon two people, handcuffed together, both wearing rags, and bickering with one another, which ended up with shouting, and then a fight ensues.
I rush over to see what the hell is going on.
The fighting stops and one of the figures holds the neck of the other.
“I’M TELLING YOU WE’RE GOING THIS WAY!” the black haired person shouts pointing to the east.
The brown haired person then shouts louder, whilst pulling the black haired person over, while pointing to the west.
“NO WE’RE NOT GOING YOUR STUPID WAY, WE’RE GOING THIS WAY!”
I sigh, and clear my throat.
“WHAT!” they both shout looking at me.
I chuckle “Um…What’s, going on…?” I asked, hoping they would stop fighting.
“Well…” they both say at the same time.
“HE WAS TALKING TO ME!” shouts the black haired one.
“NO, HE WAS TALKING TO ME!” replies the brown haired one.
“WHY YOU” shouts the black haired one as he starts to strangle the brown haired one.
I pry them apart from each other, only to remember the handcuffs, and they both topple onto each other, and start fighting again.
“Oh for God sake” I pry them apart once more, and hold them. “Look, if I let you go, will you stop fighting?” I ask.
“Yes” both of them replied.
I directed them to a tree, I told them to stand as far as they can away from each other, with the handcuff chain on the tree.
“Okay” I said, reaching for my bow, and a single arrow “Here’s hoping this works.”
Suddenly, a force out of nowhere came over me. I twirled the arrow around my finger, and stretched the string of the bow past my head, and let out a massive blurred projectile that broke the chain, and went straight through the tree itself.
“Finally” The brown haired one said, as the tree dropped behind him.
“Okay, you owe me, what are your names, and what’s going on?” I asked.
“Well, I’m Nicholas Attano, but you can call me Nick” The black haired one said “and the retard over there is Aidan” pointing to the brown haired one.
“Hey” Aidan said “I heard that.”
"Oh, I'm Retro" I reply "Why the hell were you two handcuffed together?” I asked, hoping to find out what the hell this mess was about.
Suddenly, I heard some people on horseback riding through the plains, four strong looking knights in chain mail, equipped with long swords, lances, and javelins, approached me.
“You” one of them said “Move aside”
“No” said Nick cowering behind me,
“Please don’t let us go with them” Aidan said cowering behind Nick.
"Why?" I ask
"We have no quarrel with you, now step aside or face us in a battle" He said
I slowly reach for my bow, hoping for a clean kill, but the knight in front attacks me, getting a clean hit on me, the other three surround me, and try to hit, but I luckily dodge each one.
"Dammit" shouts Aidan "Hey Retro, I'm a tactician. This fight is easy, but you gotta listen to me"
I look back, and ask for some help.
"Alright man" he shouts, "Move back, and snipe the enemy from afar, you're good with a bow and arrow."
I follow his advice, and move a few steps away from the enemy, and take a shot. It goes clean through one of the knights, and he falls to the ground.
"NO" shouts one of the knights "You'll pay for that!"
As my turn ends, I can only hope I can dodge three attacks again, but I was hurt pretty bad from the first hit, and I think another might down me. One of the knights rushes me, and with no way of counter attacking, I brace myself, and hope for the best.
Suddenly, out of nowhere, a sword blocks the attack.
"What?" the knight said confused. It was Nick; he was blocking the attack with a sword. He then jumped up, and stabbed the knight; he fell to the ground and didn't move.
"Nick..." I said
"Ha" Nick said giving me a thumbs up, "Don't worry man, I got your back."
"How dare you" shouts one of the knights "Stealing a weapon in battle is one of the most shameful things you can do. especially from the dead."
"Ah, shut it" shouts Nick "Come on man, we got this."
"Hey!" shouts Aidan "Watch out for the next attack, they look mad"
One of knights then rushes me again, but this time with a Javelin. He pathetically throws it at me, missing. I counter attack, and take him down. The other knight rushes at Nick.
"I'LL MAKE YOU PAY FOR WHAT YOU DID" shouts the Knight. Nick gets hit but still stands, suddenly his sword lights up, he roars and stabs his sword straight through the knight's chest. For a moment, no one moved, until the Knight fell off his horse, and lay on the ground.
"We did it." shouts Aidan
"Heh" I said "That was pretty easy, you guys were good."
"Thanks, Retro." Nick said "Oh, and Thank you for helping us, and, well I know this may seem stupid to ask, but you think you could help us get back to town?"
"Yeah" Aidan continued "We were trying to get back to our town, but we got captured, and lost on the way."
"Sure" I reply "We'll take their equipment, and we'll go by horse, you guys know the way...right?"
They soon rush off to scavenge their equipment, ignoring my question.
"Hey, I found a map" shouts Nick "Um..." He turns and twists the map looking for this location we have to head off too. "...We've got to head north."
"Okay guys" getting up upon a horse "We better go."
We rode off into the north. I couldn't help but feel like I was becoming more and more like a hero, I don't know if it was the fact I was being my egotistical self, and getting way to into it, or if this was some sort of hidden character inside me, maybe it was some sort of magic that Wizard gave me. I didn't think about it for long, as before I knew it, Aidan and Nick were fighting again, and we were getting close to a town..."
