Time sure flies when you’re having fun.
We’re finally back inside the game world, though quite some time has flown by. It has been 2 years since Kirito and Eugeo departed from Ruild Village. During that time they’ve lived on a farm, won a tournament, and gained entrance to Swordcraft Academy. Now, the school life has been their focus for the last year. Becoming trainees has taught both our heroes quite a bit. Moreover, Kirito’s mentor at the academy is up for graduation. Liena currently stands as the 2nd seat at the academy, and has regularly bested Kirito during their practice rounds. Her ability with the sword has continually demonstrated her will to strive forward, yet Kirito would like to show her something new as a graduation gift. Practice swords won’t be able pull off this display, so it’s time to retrieve the real deal. After arriving at the capital city, Kirito had a branch he brought with him from the Gigas Cedar forged into a sword. Using the newly forged sword to display his full strength was to be her gift, unfortunately during a day off he was caught by the 1st seat. Volo commends Kirito for practicing on a off day, although his practice got some dirt on his clothes. Such an act has brought about a duel with real swords in front of the entire school.
A lot sure has happened, yet one should remember that time flows quite differently inside Underworld. The passage of time inside this world moves quite fast, so don’t fret. Kirito has not been under for 2 years of real time. Additionally, Kirito has learned a fair amount inside this new world. Turns out one’s stats are not everything. The determination to win can overcome unlikely odds at times. I’m sure Kirito won’t be abusing this trait. Furthermore, it would appear Kirito’s investigation into what happened to him has not advanced. Recalling upon what took place that night continues to be a mystery, but in the meantime a new path has been set before him. Together with his friend Eugeo, they’ve pushed forward into becoming Integrity Knights. We’ve still got to find Alice, after all. Anyhow, ready to be schooled? Enjoy Gardener Kirito!
It’s time to duel! Join us next Saturday for the clash between the trainee and the number 1 seat.
