    [EV-F1] An Unexpected Affair

    --But really, she had absolutely no idea what she wanted him to do. All that mattered to her was that she wasn't doing this completely for free and she was at least getting something from having to slog through another hundred or so kills for a low-level she barely knew. Maybe his sincerity had just gotten to her earlier or maybe she just didn't want to go about this completely alone, even though she was going with unfamiliar company. "Come on, come on, step up!" Arabelle hopped from one foot to the other excitedly as two more moved to fill in the ranks. She had apparently missed half of the first group and she didn't have much of an idea what she did wrong because she worded her attack so vaguely the last time, so she was hyper-focused on the two who had survived. No way in hell she was letting the results of her mistake live any longer. With the group completed, she burst forward once again, cleaving her way through the mobs like they were butter. ...there was one too far back that she didn't hit. ...whoops? ~~BINGO BOOK

    She smiled faintly at the aspiring healer who'd chosen to follow after her eagerly. Already, she was bringing up the numbers in her head. With his level... going for the 'HP Regenerated' was out of the question. They needed to remove all MIT buffs for a more efficient run and doing that would just turn him into an instant one shot. So for now... all she was concerned with at the moment was the total kill count achievement. They needed a hundred. How many had she killed in their first runs? This was going to be a bit tedious. And Arabelle was no altruist. An received hers for free because she had already been there right from the start, and Arabelle needed the kills for her own achievements. Gambit though - she had absolutely no reason to push herself more than she would have if he weren't with her. "Ah, but you do know there's going to be a price for this, yes?" Arabelle spoke, nonchalantly. She tossed a glance over her shoulder. "Not something you would be paying now, but more of something you'll owe me. I don't do interest." Her lips curled into a small smile. "And I'm not interested in col and items either. I could easily grind those myself. Consider yourself fortunate in that sense, I suppose. But I'm leaving it to you to think of something." She hadn't allowed them to stray too far from the concession stand, just in case. As their first group approached, she didn't pay him too much concern and rocketed forward with her scythe bursting into green flame. ~~BINGO BOOK

    Oh, he didn't have the gross thing in his hand anymore. That was good. Arabelle felt more at ease with that thing out of her sight. She followed him as he drew a bit closer to the concession stand and hovered beside him as he looked over the items. He couldn't get the freebies? "So you were already outside..." Arabelle began, incredulous. "But you went inside where all the chaos was coming from." Noob antics. She remembered a certain silver-haired player at level 1 running right up to her and Mishiro earlier, convinced that she would be of significant help. As she moved to separate herself from the two-man team, he spoke up again. "A healing..." Her ashen eyes strayed to the catalog, where said item was listed. Two slots of a unique enhancement and recovery, plus the Cursed enhancement that seemed to be common among the rewards in this event. She looked back at him. A healer? Well, if he was better at running than fighting, that was the next best thing he could be. "You remind me of someone," she murmured with a small smile. "Fine then. Tag along, but make sure to keep out of trouble."

    She wasn't turning around. No, it was definitely not good for her. But Arabelle couldn't ignore the nagging curiosity at what got him so interested in it. She steeled herself and chanced a quick peek over her shoulder. And she could only watch, horrified, as her teammate lifted what was practically a rotting internal organ to his mouth. What a disappointment this turned out to be. He was not cute. Not cute at all. Arabelle will remember that. She turned right around, her face burning. They made the rest of the quick walk back to the concession stand. "Here we are. You should be pretty safe here. Just don't go running around again." Arabelle hovered over the option to leave the party, but then ultimately dismissed it. "Oh, if you were here early, they're giving away some freebies at the concession stands..." Arabelle shifted her feet. "I'm going back out there in a bit."

    "It's always like that." And she left it at that. Arabelle heard his rushed steps behind her as he (probably?) ran to catch up and she didn't really mind it that much until the sound of his steps stopped. "What is it?" Blinking in confusion, she looked over her shoulder as she addressed him-- "Eeeeeep!" She flung off the wet... moldy... thing that made her voice rise to the pitch of a typical shoujo protagonist's and it landed with a soft squelch against Gambit's chest. Arabelle turned red. She quickly spun around so he couldn't see her expression and wiped off her shoulder and her gloves with a strip of black cloth from her inventory. "W-well, there you have it. I threw it right at you, so don't bother giving it back. Be grateful." They walked for a little bit more. "No, these things are just really weak compared to the mobs that would scale up to my level," Arabelle hummed with a dismissive wave of her hand. The hint of pride that crept into her voice implied that she was definitely soaking up the praise though. "It's just a matter of grinding levels."

    "Whoop--" And of course, the last one was heading right for her. Arabelle's scythe flashed a bright green and she swiftly dispatched of it with an uppercut before it could get any closer. No concern about her HP or anything, she just didn't want the thing anywhere near her. That thing looked gross. As the last data shard dissipated, the small purple-haired girl took a step closer to Gambit. She scanned their immediate surroundings and smiled cheerfully. "That should be all of them... and they ran out right when I used up my energy, too! Awfully convenient, huh?" But now that his pursuers were gone, that now meant he was supposed to go straight for the concession stand where the weaker players had taken refuge. Or she could teleport him out entirely. "Come on, let's head back while the horde's still thin." Still, it would be lonely without a teammate. ...whatever. Arabelle nodded to the safer area and took the lead. ~~BINGO BOOK

    He really... didn't seem to have a weapon. When she left one behind, he walked right up to it and slapped it on the cheek - and somehow, somehow, that was just enough to reduce the undead's HP to zero. Arabelle was not going to think over the logic of that, other than that this guy had a crazy strong arm. Or that maybe she shouldn't nudge anyone too hard outside the safe zone. "Lovely," she commented with a smile. This was, maybe, the first time they had wiped their enemies in one round since she left her other team and Arabelle relished in the small feeling of pride. "Let's keep this level of performance up, alright?" Like, no pressure or anything. She didn't mind. She definitely didn't mind it now because her latest series of attacks had left one alive and it was at full HP. Arabelle landed, skidding to a stop with her scythe still at the ready. Well, that was an embarrassment. ~~BINGO BOOK

    One left from the pack and the newbie seemed to be eyeing it. Arabelle stuck an arm out, like she was preventing a kid from crossing a road and shook her head. "Just go after the ones at 1 HP. It's safest that way." -- Because holy crap, this guy was level freaking one and while he had the MIT from the corndog (?), she didn't really want to take chances while she still wasn't aware of his current stats. -- "You know, the ones that basically look half-dead." The undead at full HP stumbled around, groaning with its mouth half open. It was practically falling apart, so to speak. Arabelle promptly gave up on trying to simplify things for the newbie. He'll learn. "Ah, whatever. Just always look at their HP!" The small purple-haired girl hopped from one foot to another as three more came to fill in their fallen comrades' ranks, and spun, leaving a glowing green trail with her scythe as she assaulted the new group of zombies with another barrage of attacks. ~~BINGO BOOK

    Arabelle blinked, innocently. She nudged one of the discarded bottles with her boot and they disintegrated into a cloud of blue data fragments in unison. "I'm fiiiine~," she hummed. The sudden surge of energy kind of made her want to hop all over the place and burn down her energy bar as fast as she had forced it to regenerate earlier, but overall she felt... fine. She felt as if she had to exert some effort to keep herself still though. "Energy drinks are just supposed to give you energy, right? Nothing more, nothing less~." She wouldn't know, she'd never tried one in real life. Not even once. "Besides, I can't replenish anything when we're in combat. Here goes!" He'd pointed them out to her, but it took a moment to completely focus on the approaching group. Lifting up her large scythe, Arabelle paid less heed to her teammate as she threw herself forward and poured a third of her energy into her weapon. She sliced through the first, spun her scythe and slammed the head on the ground - where two zombies were hit by a shockwave and promptly disintegrated - and narrowly missed the last. Was it just her or was she feeling a bit giddier than usual? ~~BINGO BOOK

    None attacking them at the moment, offering them a temporary respite. She could sight a few zombies dragging themselves towards them in the distance though. Either they had been pursuing Gambit earlier or they were drawn in by the sounds of battle. They weren't quite in the clear yet. "Oh, I wasn't here when they first appeared either." Arabelle uncapped an energy drink and paused between sips to talk. "I was just taking a peaceful walk around town when they started to burst from the ground. How rude. Only came here because this is where the most of them are coming from, apparently." She tossed the empty bottle to the ground. Then she popped the cap off another and did the same. And another. And another. She could practically hear the environmental advocates screaming right now, but she kept drinking in front of her probably very confused teammate with an expression that was unnervingly, uncharacteristically Dead. It was taking all she had not to grimace at the horrid taste. "But I did hear from my friend that the ringmaster was behind it all. He drew players into the tent, appeared when they had settled down, and then summoned the zombies." Arabelle swirled the remaining liquid of the last energy drink around the empty bottle with a feigned nonchalance, and finished it with one gulp. "And here I thought Aincrad wasn't supposed to have magic. Isn't summoning the undead kind of black magic? Whatever. I do find some fun in killing them. Sometimes."

    Uh oh. He made it angry. One of the zombies completely ignored her and was heading towards her teammate now. Arabelle whirled around, trying to close the distance so she could put herself between them - or better, finish it off. "I'll handle it! Just keep backing away--!" --The zombie reached out for him and somehow, somehow, Gambit's 'fight' instincts suddenly kicked in and he snapped its neck with his bare hands. Holyyy crap. "Well," Arabelle rolled her eyes and smirked. He was a bit panicky, but maybe, just maybe, he could actually handle himself. Or maybe it was just dumb luck and she was reading too much into it. "I suppose that means I can worry about you less, then!" One last! Holding up her scythe, she pressed forward and embedded the sharp end of her blade in its chest. The zombie burst into shards with a cry, leaving them... with no enemies for the time being.

    There were three of them left, so it would have inevitably come to the point where she would have difficulty dodging their attacks. It's not like she wasn't the best at moving evasively. Not at all. Baka! Arabelle twirled her scythe in her hands and cut through the zombie that had hit her in retaliation. This time, it died for real. She hoped none of them would ever reach the level of Zombie 43. Two more remaining and - she tried to peer past the cloud of data shards to see if there were any more, but all she saw was her new teammate... Rushing at one of the zombies and failing spectacularly. Aaand now he was too far from her. If Arabelle's gloves weren't dirty, she would have pressed a palm to her forehead. What a dummy. If she were asked who was the noobiest noob among the people she'd met so far, it was probably him. Taking her scythe, she jogged after him and took her position as he scrambled to a stand. ~~BINGO BOOK

    "A couple minutes?" she repeated, incredulous. Arabelle looked at the tall boy behind her - oh, his name was Gambit, as the status bars showed - then back at the zombies who were still coming forward. Well, maybe if someone as inexperienced as An were to also run around aimlessly... yep, totally plausible! "Hmhm, I get it. Don't run off. It's not exactly safe out here." Like she needed to say it, he was practically cowering behind her at this point. She didn't want to get too far from him, so she planted her feet to the ground and let them come to her. "Oh. I don't know." -- She twirled her large scythe in her gloved hands, slicing through the zombies who were reckless enough to advance.-- "I guess I just felt like being nice today, that's all." Three left, at one HP. Arabelle felt a twinge of irritation. This was a new record that she ultimately did not want to earn. ~~BINGO BOOK

    He didn't move though. Probably finally froze in fear. Arabelle let out her breath in a frustrated puff, her bangs flipping upward at the expelled air. "Just how long have you been running around like this?" She leaped back, keeping the last zombie at a distance, and finished it off with a swift slash of her scythe. "Looks like you've drawn quite the following." There were three more, shambling after him with hunger in their eyes. Yeah, no. I get you, but only figuratively. He's looking like a snacc. She drew in a breath and launching herself forward once again, she reduced two to pixels and left another at a very near death state. Well, this was just as annoying as before. Arabelle remembered why she had been so reluctant to go back in the first place. "Party up with me?" she offered as the message prompt appeared in front of him. "Let's get this mess handled first and maybe I can take you to a safe place." ~~BINGO BOOK

    There was a low-level running around screaming. Arabelle blinked, dumbfounded. He didn't seem to be fighting back - what the hell was he doing out here in the audience area? Oh well, she chalked it up to the usual noob antics. She watched curiously, still holding onto her scythe, as a group of zombies tailed after the poor guy. He was kind of cute, too. What a waste it would be if he died. Well, there was her target. Almost nonchalantly, she ignited her scythe and took off, running straight for the guy. Was that a corndog in his mouth? "Finish that up and get back!" The purple-haired girl hopped over him and unleashed a flurry of attacks on his pursuers. She landed on the ground gracefully and looked over her shoulder with a small smile. Arabelle nodded her head at the last zombie, remaining at 1 HP. "Mind finishing that one up for me?" ~~BINGO BOOK
