Wolf, being the brick head that he is, charged in right after Asuna. They took off at the same time but the light weight woman beat him by a landslide. She executed her attack and backed off as Wolf jumped in, placing his sword vertically inside its mouth to prevent it from closing. As the monster pulled away, it dragged Wolf along with it. He was hanging onto his sword for his life as the monster went rampant.

Wolf wanted to scream for help but he used every ounce of energy to remain alive, which was amazing as to how long he was holding on for. Wolf felt like they were attacking the monster while this was happening because it sent its face straight for the ground in order to bury itself again. Except there was only one problem. Wolf planted his feet on the ground at the last second and held his stance.

His sword shone a magnificent white as he awaited the perfect time to strike at his gigantic opponent. But who will give out first?

After the hoard of monsters had been dealt with, Galen heard a rumble along the ground as the giant sand worm leaped out of the snow and began attacking everyone. Nick, Amon, Wolf, and Black began attacking Wormy as it came aground. Asuna even landed a few hits on it, before the beast turned on her.

"Asuna!" yelled Galen. "Watch out!"

Luckily, Asuna jumped out of the way, but not before Wolf jumped in to block the worm's gaping maw of teeth. His large blade stuck in the worm's mouth, preventing it from clamping down. The worm then began flailing its head around to try and shake off Wolf and his sword. It finally tried to bury it's head in the sand, taking Wolf with it. However, Wolf held his ground, planting his large feet in the snow covered field. It almost looked like a poster from an old movie. The image was like a knight holding up a shield against a dragon's flame.

Galen saw that Wolf wouldn't be able to hold on much longer before he was dragged down beneath the snow with the worm. I have to hurry before it's too late! Galen then rushed forward, noticing that the worm's body was lurched over Wolf, as if Wolf was holding up all of the beast's weight. That means a strong hit from the side should knock the beast over. Galen's spear glowed green as he shouted, "Lancia Dragone!". Galen's body began spinning like a top, as he went flying into the side of the worm. His spear drove into the side of Wormy as the great beast fell over on his side, releasing Wolf. Galen then pulled his spear out and jumped backwards, preparing for the next attack.

The worm toppled over after wolf made sure it didn't go underground.
His HP had almost dropped into the red zone,
Nick looked at his own bar.
It was in the deep yellow zone, pushing red.
Still he had to do this, no matter the cost this would finish it.

He ran towards the worm, as it stood up, it's mouth was open and it looked like it wanted to bury itself.

"Like i'd let you!" Nick yelled as he started his combo attack.

His first hit was at the bottom half, nick then jumped up and sliced vertical.
The worm's HP dropped to it's final bar.
Almost there! Nick thought.

The worm attacked but nick dodged, but the rocks that hit him dropped his HP into the red.

It was as if nick didn't care anymore, his awareness was in another world.
The other two hits reached the mark they had to hit.

The worm was in red HP.
Nick charged in to give the final blow, when the worm dove towards nick.
It'll be close! he thought as he screamed at the top of his lungs.

His sword connected and wormy's HP dropped to zero.
Nick looked up and saw it's face, it was only 30 centimeters from his face.

"T-That was too close." He muttered. He looked at his HP bar, only 10 HP left.
His left hand was still missing and the timer was about to run out.
Wormy blew apart into fragments and nick was blown backwards onto the ground.
His sword flew into the air and dropped a few meters behind nick.

He was breathing heavy and his HP was as low as it got.
I think i could die like this. He thought, But not today i think.

He heard voices far away, but he didn't hear them, nick just wanted to sleep, but he sat up and looked around in a daze.

Wolf took a quick breather after Galen had attacked the monster. Seconds later Nick comes dashing in with yellow health, almost red. "Are we ALL crazy?" Wolf mumbled as he scanned his own yellow health. Nick began his slash upwards and Wolf snuck behind the worm, stabbing his massive weapon into the backside, where nobody could see him. "Although I'm one to talk."

Wormy attempted his attack at Nick making Wolf jump to the side to dodge its shaking body. Nick dodged but Wormy's impact with the ground threw rocks everywhere, some hitting Nick. "Now that Nick is in the red he might back off." Wolf said as he readied his giant sword for another swing.

Nick charged in and Wolf expected just as much. A grin appeared upon his face as he charged in to help him. Wormy charged towards Nick as well but Wolf was here to slow it down. He dug his sword into the side of the monster and planted his feet hard into the snow covered earth. Wolf was dragged fast but slowed ever so slightly. As Nick delivered the final blow, Wormy finally exploded into various shapes all over the place sending Wolf and Nick backwards.

Wolf got up and viewed the message he received earlier. It was a boss room notification. He looked at the group and they all had the same thought in mind. Their stares told him that they wanted an answer as to what they'll do next.

"Now that we've leveled, we can rest and stock for the boss battle." Wolf looked at each and every one of them. "Head back to town to stock and heal up. We finish this today."

After Asuna retreated back with the other front liners, she saw the brave yet reckless efforts of the two other guys taking down the worm. Everybody's health was either yellow or below at this point because of the large number of monsters they had just faced against. Fortunately there were no causalities which made Asuna sigh relieved. Now that the worm was defeated, they could now focus on other things. With the location of the boss being discovered, it was that certain time again when everybody would stock up on supplies, divide into teams and mentally prepare themselves. The last boss battle was a painful reminder of how some people nearly lost their lives.

Asuna did not need to stock up on anymore supplies but she definitely needed her health meter to go back into the green zone. She decided to let her battle healing skill naturally take care of that. Asuna looked towards Galen who would probably partner up with her again during the boss fight.

"Let's head back to town before we run into anymore monsters."

Nick got up, his hand materialised and he looked at it.
Looks the same as always, thank god it was a temporary condition.

A message popped up, LEVEL UP.
Again? nick thought. He pushed it away and saw the indicator go from 18 to 19.

His battle healing skill made sure his HP was in the yellow zone by now going steady towards green.
Great, i can breath easy now. Nick thought as he sheathed his sword.

"Now that we've leveled, we can rest and stock for the boss battle." Wolf looked at each and every one of them. "Head back to town to stock and heal up. We finish this today."

"Great, about time." Nick said as he started running towards the boss room."
While running he checked his inventory and saw that he still had enough supplies for the next boss encounter.
His armor was still in the green and his sword hadn't been damaged in the last fight.

The huge double door stood in front of him, it gave nick the jitters.
He sat down and waited for the other players to arrive.

Galen watched as Nick rushed in and quickly finished the monster off seconds before he got eaten. *sigh* That was close, thought Galen. He looked at everyone's health and saw that most of the party had yellow or below. Galen's health was borderline green, but only because he had missed most of the fight with the herd of daer. He looked at Asuna, and saw that she was pretty exhausted as well. Everyone decided to head back to town and heal up before the final fight. They had already spent quite some time on the current floor, but Galen didn't mind resting up for a sec.

Galen turned toward Asuna and asked, "Hey Asuna, want to get something to eat?". His stomach was growling after all the fighting.

Asuna heard Galen ask to go grab something to eat before the fight. She was not too hungry but she did not mind going out to eat.

"Yeah sure, let's not take too long since we wouldn't want to make the others wait for us."

She was wondering if their current numbers would be able to withstand the monster. It seemed like not as many people would be present for this fight compared to the previous one. Asuna and Galen head back to town and look for a nearby restaurant. They talked about topics such as the potential type of strategies and attack patterns they could use during the boss fight. Right now Asuna was at level 16, which was a comfortable enough level to be at.

The others took a long time, considering they went out for supplies.
Nick took the tought of challanging the boss solo, but he left the tought behind.
Thinking back the last fight, they got lucky.
He steeled himself for what needed to be done.

Floor 7. What will be waiting for them there.

The battle was over. Vyse sighed loudly and sat down in the snow, sending a small puff of the soft, white powder into the air. The days battles had been tiring, but the biggest battle was yet to come. While the group had been fighting, the boss' room had been discovered, which meant it was time to put their lives on the line. Why did they do it? Why was it always them who had to risk their lives to help everyone? Why was their little group the only people who seemed to care about beating this game? Every floor was the same. They would fight to get stronger, and then fight to move forwards, all on their own. More and more thought began to swirl in Vyse's head, all questions without answers and grim realisations. With a great deal of effort, he managed to suppress the thoughts, telling himself that what they were doing was the right thing, that they were helping people. He had held onto this thought from the very beginning, convinced that if he fought hard enough, he could do something to help the people trapped in this game. It had been a pillar for his sanity from the start, keeping him focused on his task and blocking out the crazy reality that was Sword Art Online. But now, the pillar was starting to crumble, and cracks in Vyse's resolve threatened to bring everything crashing down around him. The snow kept falling, small specks of white against a dark grey sky.

Soon, Vyse was the only one left. The rest of the group had gone to search for supplies, or headed off in search of food or rest. Shaking the snow from his clothes, he picked himself up and stretched his arms -out of habit more than anything else- and slowly made his way back to the safe area.

Wolf was more than ready to take on the boss but he couldn't help but think about the other players; were they ready too? Wolf scanned his HP bar. His health was rather high, enough to the point that he felt like he had the most HP. There was a chance he was wrong but it was all irrelevant anyways. He kept walking towards the target destination, where he met up with Nick.

"Did ya wait long?" Wolf said as he tipped up his strange looking hat that made him look like a magical card dealer. He gazed upon the giant double doors and images of the previous boss appeared in his head. He saw images of Yuuki getting hit and even breaking down. He clenched his teeth and his hands. He wasn't going to let something like that happen again. As long as he was alive, no; longer than his own lifespan, he was going to make sure that she made it out alive. He wanted to see her in real life, not in this virtual one. Nick must've said something because Wolf snapped out of his trance.

"Sorry, what was that?" Wolf scratched what he could of the back of his head and chuckled a bit. It was time to play his respective role, the one that keeps his team alive.

Yuuki had been challenging herself at buying the items she needed to aquire for the upcoming boss battle. The space in her inventory was slowly but surely being filled up with the necessary items. Healing crystals, accuracy +, etc. This here, that one over there, the one in the back. Around and around she flitted, making sure to come prepared this time without wasting all of her currency. The day was a cold one, forcing Yuuki to tidy her unkempt hair repeatedly as it kept frizzing up, curls sticking out here and there even though it was straight most of the time. As Oliver began to pick at it again, a simple thought crossed her mind. Why was she so tedious around subjects that would have only mattered in the real world? Sure, there were people who acted like regular life was still flowing. But it wasn't as if people bothered about such trivial things when their life was in stake.

Deciding that her job was done in the run-down town, she headed towards where they had located the boss room. As she walked, Yuuki began to feel something prickling her cheek. With a quick check, she confirmed it was a snowflake. Her breath came out in lazy puffs that mingled with the freshly falling snowflakes, each one unique in their own way. Just like their little rag-tag team of a group. They all had their share of imperfections, but it was nice to be a part of something. Everyone had learned to cope with each other- even if it was hard and extremely annoying at times- but in the end, they all fit together like a gigantic puzzle of-

Yuuki sighed half-heartedly and returned to walking, her coat- if you could call it that- barely containing the heat in her body. The snow was beginning to come down a litlle harder, but just enough so that Yuuki could smile as she thought of her own personal joke again. Yuki. It made her chuckle slightly and Oliver began to purr at the content feeling it recieved from its master. When the trek to the boss doors was completed, Yuuki was surprised that barely anybody was there. Save for Nick, Vyse, and Wolf. No girls to keep her company as the agonizing wait began for the other players to arrive in front of the dreaded door. Walking over to a secluded spot off to the left of the doors, Yuuki plopped down on the snow and began to make a snowball. It began to collect until a moderate size was made. More began to pile on top of it and finally, her creation was finished.

She laughed at her crude animal. "Usagi-san," Yuuki said with a smile.

Wolf arived after some time of waiting.
"Did ya wait long?" he asked.

"Longer then i care to admit."Nick said hoping more players would arive soon so they could clear this floor.
"Seems as the motivation is getting lower." Nick said

"Sorry, what was that?" Wolf asked.

"Nothing, don't worry about it" He ignored me or he was occupied with his own thoughts. Whatever the case nick trusted wolf would drag the team to victory, or at least be a source of energy for the clearing team.

he saw Yuuki arive soon after.

Three people, still not enough. Nick sighed.
When can the attack begin? Who knows. But nick was ready

Wolf turned around to see the girl from his thoughts, appear before him. She made a snowball and Wolf got ready for the worst. He knew what was going to happen next so he slowly crouched towards the ground and make a snowball too. She finished her creation but it wasn't the weapon he thought she was going to produce so Wolf just put the snowball back on the ground.

He looked at her creation for a second, and then looked back at his dropped snowball. Then he got an idea. While waiting for everyone to return, Wolf took that snowball and rolled it in the snow. It grew. After a couple minutes of rolling it, the snowball grew to at least 3 feet tall, but that wasn't enough. He continued to roll it until it was another foot bigger.

He grabbed another snowball and did the same, only making this one 3 feet tall. He lifted the creation and placed it upon the bigger one, creating his 7-foot tall snowman. He clapped his hands together as if he was cleaning them off and then placed them on his hips. He didn't know what to use as the eyes and such so he just left it as it is, maybe someone else will come along and finish it for him.

Wolf turned to face the blue haired maiden. "A-a-," Wolf stumbled on his words. After clearing his throat, he tried once more. His golden eyes stared more confidently into hers. "Let's do this." And for some strange reason, he held out his hand.

Amon was beat after the training session out on the savannah and decided to get some sleep. He found a small inn and stayed the night there. Amon really didn't know what to get for the boss fight so he got the basics, potions, repairing his items, and getting some antidotes. Amon wished he had the money to buy a new two-handed blade but since he had not a gold piece to his name, he sided against it until he had something. Amon was not one who borrowed things, because he always forgot to pay the things back and the person would always nag at him about it until he finally could.

After he had finished shopping, he went towards the dungeon where he hoped he was not the last person to show up. He had waited waited a while to show up and was kind of embarrassed to show up so tardy. When he finally showed up he was surprised to learn that he was only the fourth person to arrive. There was a large snowman peaking out as he arrived and saw Wolf and Yuuki both with snowballs ready to duke it out in a snowball fight. Nobody had noticed that Amon had arrived yet so he had the great idea to sneak up on all of them. After making about ten or twenty snowballs, he felt confident. Amon lobbed his first snowball right where Nick had been laying down at, hoping to get his attention. Then hurled two more snowballs, at Yuuki and Wolf.
