Sunlight crept through the pale curtains and as it slowly made its way across the old wooden floor, Vyse stirred. The last few days had been a strain, not physically but mentally, and It had taken a toll on Vyse. Still tired, he pulled himself to his feet and opened the curtains. The streets below were already filling with people, and he knew it was only going to get worse. Rubbing his eyes, Vyse noticed the blinking icon telling him he had mail waiting. Wearily he opened it to find two messages waiting. The first was an invitation to breakfast. The second was from Wolf, and the message was accompanied by a location ping giving directions to a restaurant where they were supposed to meet. Not wanting to be late, Vyse left almost immediately.

The streets were swollen with adventurers busy going about their business, and the masses made it hard for Vyse to navigate the city. At that point, a shadow darted overhead and Vyse remembered that there were wires connecting all the buildings in the city. With his average agility score, Vyse figured he could bypass the crowds with minimal risk. As the crowd carried him further down the street, he began to search for a means onto the rooftops. A couple of meters down the road a merchant had stopped a cart full of crates. The stacked boxes made the perfect makeshift staircase. Beyond the cart was a signpost hung above a door, and hung from the roof was a larger post meant to hang a flag or larger sign, but luckily it was left empty.

As the crowd kept moving, Vyse waited for a clear path. When the last few people cleared away, he made a break for the cart. Within seconds he had closed the gap between himself and the cart, and with a firm boot, propelled himself onto the back if the cart. In an instant he had scaled the makeshift stairs and was sailing through the air. A few people watched on as he planted his foot on the first of the two horizontal flag posts. As the second came within reach, Vyse extended his hand and grabbed the post. Using his momentum, Vyse swung from the flag post and propelled himself higher and finally onto the rooftop of a small, single story shop.

The view from above the streets was clear, and the space felt luxurious compared to the cramped streets below. Without wanting to waste any time, Vyse set off over the rope way above the streets, although out of caution he took it slower than most of the other people he had seen this far. After a few buildings, Vyse felt he was getting the hang of his new method of transport and started to pick up the pace and soon the crowded streets were moving below him in a blur. Finally he came to his destination and in one fluid motion Vyse leapt from the roof of a third story building and using both hands he swung from a rail that jutted from the next building over. The momentum of his swing allowed Vyse to pull off a graceful backward flip as he fell to the street below. His abrupt landing startled some of the surrounding adventurers and one let out a small squeal as he appeared beside her as if from nowhere. Without saying a word he continued past the last few shops and into the restaurant marked on his map. I side sat the familiar hulking figure of Wolf, and the comparatively small frame of Nick.
"It's been a while," he said with a smile as he pulled a chair over to the table.

Zwei woke up quite early that day and noticed that he had recieved an mail from Amon. It said something along the lines of "Want to eat together tomorrow morning? need to make plans" "Well, sure!" Zwei thought. "It's gonna be good to see the guys again."

He decided to not equip his New armor this time, but rather equip something he bought a few floors back, namely a pair of jeans, or jeans like cloth armor anyway, and a white t-shirt. He hadn't felt like using it before now, but because this town hit so Close to home, he felt that the time was right.

he left his room and started to walk towards the meeting point. He walkede quite leisurely and didn't stress on, as he had plenty of time. While he walked he reflected on this world, and the old real one. even though this seemed more real than the real world, he knew that he had to get back. Tgis was not a Place to stay forever. Mainly because of the overhanging treath of real Death, either by a montster, player, suicide or Death because of body decay in the real world.

he snickered a bit to himself. A few years ago he had watched an anime called .hack// and it basically told a story similar to what was happening to him riight now. He lived out a real life anime. If it hadn't been so tragic, then he would've laughed of the irony, but he just couldn't briing himself to it.

He arrived at the resturant, and discoveredthat Wolf, nick, and yse had already arrived. "Hey guys, how are you all?" he said, before taking a seat.

Wolf waited in his seat scouting around at the female NPC's. "If only they had cat ears and maid outfits," Wolf thought to himself as he saw Nick, Vyse, and Zwei enter the restaurant. He replied to all of their greets and wondered what took Amon. Wolf opened up with menu with a swift flick of the wrist and navigated to his messages. Sending Amon another "hurry up" message, Wolf because to call over a waitress.

"How may I help you?" A male NPC came by to answer his call.

"Yeah, can you bring over that cute waitress over there, I want her to take our order." Not understanding what he did wrong, the NPC did as requested. "Now that puts me at ease. Let's see," Wolf scanned the menu and even asked the NPC what she found the best but of course, she was programmed to say they are all the best.

"Well that still doesn't help me," Wolf continued. "Eh, I'll guess I'll order 4 Early Bird's Super Omelet. And that's good enough for breakfast. What are you guys going to get?"

Vyse's greeting was met with a welcoming wave from Wolf and Nick, and behind him walked in Zwei. Vyse and Zwei both took a seat and as they did, Wolf called for the waiter. When a male NPC arrived to take the groups order, Wolf asked him to send over one of the female waitresses instead. Confused, the male waiter did as asked, and moments later a woman appeared. Vyse noticed she was cute, and realised why Wolf had sent the other NPC away. Only one thing seemed to take Wolfs mind off of food. Girls. Lucky you can't get in trouble for sexually harassing the NPC's. Vyse thought to himself and let out a small chuckle.

"Eh, I'll guess I'll order 4 Early Bird's Super Omelet. And that's good enough for breakfast. What are you guys going to get?" Wolf asked. Vyse scanned the menu and found that his appetite wasn't really there.
"I guess I'll have the Feathered Dragon eggs with a side of Boar Ribs." he said with a smile. The girl acknowledged the order and made a note before asking "Anything to drink with that?"
"Surprise me."

When nick sat down he was greeted by wolf who was already in the restaurant
and looking over the menu.
Not long after him vyse and zwei arrived.

Nick waved to them as they sat down and saw wolf calling a waiter.
A male waiter arrived and asked what we wanted to order, before nick could say anything
wolf asked for another waiter.

Confused the male waiter left and sent the female waiter.
Nick looked over to wolf who had just ordered and whispered to him.

"Good taste" With a smile.

Vyse ordered his food and the waiter looked at nick.

"I think i'll have the feathered owlbear eggs with boar ribs, "
When she asked what nick wanted to drink he said "Just water, thank you."

"It's been a while since I had a nap this good." Amon said as he stretched out his arms. He looked at the clock and noticed that he was already ha;f an hour late for the meeting he asked for. "Great..." he yawned as he slowly stood up. "I should probably get going." Amon then noticed that he had recieved a message from Wolf, it read "hurry up". "Straight to the point as always." Amon smiled as he started out from his room. Halfway down the hallway Amon noticed that he had yet to change back into his normal attire and his door had already locked because it was past check out time. "Hope nobody cares I'm in my pajamas."

Amon walked into the restaurant as he saw Wolf exchange the male server they had with a cute female one. The whole group was there already and he thought of a good way to take some heat off of himself for being so late. "I could buy them their breakfast." Amon thought but quickly discarded the thought because he remembered the last time they all ate together. There probably wasn't any food left in the place. "I swear most of the money we gather in this place goes towards food." Amon sighed as he walked up.

"Hey guys, sorry about the tardiness. This floor has some of the most comfortable beds in this game I swear." Amon laughed as he picked up a menu and decided to order the first thing he saw. Which happened to be fried beafer on a bun with the days "special" sauce. Amon inquired what the sauce was and the waitress just giggled and said it was a secret. He was too tired to ask and just added a water to his order.

Forgetting to order his drink, Wolf literally wolfed down his food regardless. Around him were great company and even with the lack of members, Wolf knew he had to keep his head up high. A leader not leading, is simply taking a walk by himself. Holding back his own emotions, the hulking figure finished his fourth plate and called over the cute waitress again.

"Do you have any wine-" Wolf cut his sentence short. This is how he usually dealt with sadness. Like the previous floors, he sulked after the loss of his best friend and the girl of his dreams. After losing another important girl, Wolf felt the need to drown in digital alcohol but knew it was the wrong way to go about it.

"Do you have anything that'll give me solid energy so I can put my life on the line for a pretty girl like yourself?" Wolf said taking a breath in after his long sentence.

After ordering and receiving a drink that the waitress recommended, Wolf chugged it down. It tasted surprisingly like orange juice but the color was way off. "Alright," Wolf said, placing his empty glass on the table. He looked around and noticed all of their plates were empty and maybe were even empty for a while. "How about we go get stronger? So we can lead a successful boss raid."

After every rainstorm, an array of beautiful bright lights will always follow close behind.

Zwei ordered the 7 layered Tower of pancakes for breakfast from the cute girl waitress that wolf had gotten to waiter them. She asked him what he wanted to drink, and he said he just wanted some juice. At this point Amon had joined them, annd he apologized for being so late. "No worries" Zwei said, between bites. He was starving, so the breakfast really hit the spot.

The air around the table was great, and it felt good to be With poeple again, even though they were a few People short. The Food tasted great, and it didn't take long before everyones plates were empty. Well, wolf was a bit behind, but it didn't matter, the light banter and general small talk around the table made the time fly by quickly, and Wolf said after awhile "How about we og get stronger? So we can lead a successful boss raid."

"Well sure." Zwei said. "it won't hurt us to get stronger, and it will most probably increase our chances of survival greatly."

He had heard that the last boss fight had been super hard, and they were probabl way underleveled for the next boss, or maybe even the next Dungeon. The last boss seemed to be the main drive behind Wolf's question, ell, that and something else, though, he couldn't quite put his finger on it.....

The food and conversation flowed, and Vyse was enjoying their time together. The group was together again, and it felt like it had been ages since they had sat and ate together. Although their numbers were fewer, they were together none the less. Before long the plates were emptied and taken away, and the companions finished their drinks and conversations. Wolf addressed the group and suggested that they go train, which was a good idea since things had been a struggle lately, and no one wanted to lose any more members of their already limited group. Vyse agreed, but mentioned he had something he had to take care of before he could join them but remained vague, not wanting to talk about the ordeal during the last boss raid.
"I'll send you a message when I've taken care of a few things. Save a few monsters for me." He said with a smile as he stood up and bid the group goodbye. The smile lingered as Vyse exited the building and made his way onto the streets of «Foretsa».

Once on the streets again, Vyse began searching for a smithy to replace some of his broken gear, but after a fruitless search of the local streets, he decided to check his player manual and see if there was any information posted on forges. Luckily for him, there were plenty scattered around the large city. The closest one however, was a lot further away than he had hoped, and he figured with the crowds and labyrinth like streets, it would take him almost an hour to reach it. Just as he was about to set off, a shadow flew overhead, and Vyse remembered the rooftops. Without wanting to waste any time fighting crowds, he decided he would make his way onto the rooftops. Grabbing a low-hanging sign of a nearby single story shop, he was able to pull himself up onto the roof. From there, he used a series of windowsills and balconies to ascend another few meters and onto a neighbouring building. looking over the rooftops, Vyse marked a location on his map and set off across the city skyline, and in mere minutes, he had covered triple the distance he would have normally traveled below.

Busy streets passed below him, and soon enough, Vyse had reached his destination. With a careful dismount, he made his way back to the streets below, and the writhing crowds that occupied them. He was now closer to the center of the city, and although the streets were much wider, more people had moved in to fill the extra space. As quickly as he could, he forced his way through the wall of people and towards the smithy. When he got there, he noticed the building was smaller than he had expected. Standing only two storied, the neighbouring buildings loomed over it at almost twice its height. As Vyse made his way towards the entrance, he noticed a forge tucked in the gap between the small shop and its neighbour, but it was unmanned at the moment. Above the door hung a sign, that looked like it had once been a stately and regal sign, but time had left it looking old and weathered. Taking up a large portion of the sign was what Vyse assumed was the smithy's logo. A rams head dominated the center of the logo, and behind it were two crossed blacksmiths hammers engulfed in flames. Below the image was a banner that read «The Shepherd of Fire» and on either side of the name was a small tagline "Arming the strong, Aiding the weak"

Vyse pushed open the wooden door and a bell chimed as he walked into the shop. The walls were decorated with weapons and shields, and standing ominously in the corners of the room were multiple mannequins dressed in different types of armour. The counter was made up of a single, long display case filled with all sorts of items, from amulets and rings, to helmets and headgear. A dark skinned man greeted Vyse as he entered and introduced himself. When asked if he was looking for anything in particular, Vyse shook his head and asked to see some of their weapons. He was lead around the shop and showed many different types of weapons, from single and double edged short-swords, to axes and mauls. The Mauls caught his eye, and boasted massive damage, but Vyse doubted he could use one effectively due to its excessive weight and slow attack speed. Finally, he was shown a sword that he had recently been sold by an adventurer. It was a one-handed sword with a single-edged curved blade, and Vyse instantly recognised the shape.
"A Katana? I haven't used one of these before.." he said as he looked at the weapon hanging on the wall.
"Ah, but this one is unique." the shopkeeper replied. Before Vyse could question him, he took the weapon off of the wall and turned it in his hand. As he did, he revealed a second blade protruding from the tsuka.
"A Souba." Vyse said, amazed with the weapon. He had never seen one before. It was identical to a katana, but instead of a single blade, the souba had two running parallel. The blades were polished to a mirror shine, and Vyse inspected the blade more closely as the shopkeeper handed it to him. The tsuba (guard) was squared, and had a dull gold colour to it, which matched the kashira (pommel), and the chord that wrapped the tsuka was a deep red. Opening the stats page for the weapon, Vyse was impressed with its speed, and the attack stat was more than he expected, as was the price tag. However, he was impressed with the weapon, and felt he could rely on it when he most needed it. With a smile, he told the shopkeep that he would be purchasing the weapon, but also needed some armour. With that, the man lead Vyse around the store again, this time pointing out the different sets of armour they had in stock.

Skimming past the heavy armour, Vyse come to rest on a set of light armour. The leather was dark, almost black, and the main chest piece was fairly plain, but was broken up by multiple straps and buckles running across it. One shoulder sported a plain looking pauldron, and the knees, gauntlets, and boots had similar small plates of armour. The shopkeeper explained that the chest piece also had a thin piece of steel beneath the leather that covered the majority of the chest. Again, Vyse browsed the stats. While they lacked in physical defence (as did much light armour), the set made up for its weaknesses with additional speed and agility.
"I'll take it." he said with a smile.
"Excellent. Let's talk business than, shall we?" replied the shopkeeper.

Using most of the glitched items he had in his inventory as bargaining tools -he had no use for them anymore, so he may as well sell them-, Vyse was able to pay for the armour and sword in full, but just barely. He immediately equipped the new items and thanked the store owner before leaving. As he entered the streets again, he sent a message to Wolf asking their location.
"Time to test these new toys out." he said to himself and looked down at his new outfit. His sword was slung from his waist, but hung at the back, instead of on the side like most swords. The new feeling was a little uncomfortable, but he would get used to it soon enough. Without wanting to waste any more time, Vyse began to make his way to the nearest city gate.

Asuna arrived at the 7th floor by using a teleportation gate. She was instantly amazed at the scenery of this town since it was much more lively and interesting than the previous few floors. This was perhaps the most modernized place so far within SAO. The name of the town, New Beginning was rather interesting since she imagined it would have a gruffer title to it. As she looked forward she could see the buildings getting taller and taller, which made her feel as if she was back in a downtown area in Japan.

After observing her surroundings she began walking around. There were a lot of tough looking players walking around, and most of them male of course. Asuna was used to being the only girl in the area, and she learned to ignore the stares from the other men. The first thing players normally did in a new floor was check out the shops and see what merchandise there was to buy. At the moment she was still satisfied from the sword she got as a boss drop and her armor was still durable. However she was going to need to purchase some new crystals and potions since her own supply of healing potions was running out.

It felt like a while since she had seen some of her other comrades. Usually after clearing a new floor everybody went off to do their own business and then met up later on to either fight in the clearing zone or discuss boss strategies. At the present moment there were only a few guilds that were known and none of them stood out as major power houses. Maybe one day somebody would invite her to join a guild, but she felt comfortable in her position as a solitary warrior. She had her face hidden because she was wearing a long black cloak. The cloak had a hood and she put the hood over her head. For now it was best to get some rest before heading off to the clearing zone.

Asuna found a cheap inn to stay at and checked into her room. However the sun was still out and it was too wasteful just to stay in her room the entire day. After all, what else is there to do in SAO other than explore the area? It wasn’t as if they had other forms of simple entertainment such as playing games and watching television. It would’ve been funny to be able to play a game within a game. So she decided to depart from the inn after taking a small power nap.

In New Beginnings she was thankful that there was a change in scenery since the previous floor reminded me of a dry desert that was void of life. At least in this town it was bustling with activity and interesting to explore. The main thing she had to concern herself with was not getting lost.

Nick long ago finished his meal, was looking around the table
looking at the other members of the group.
Still a few short... He thought looking over the table.
He thought back on the previous floors and those they had lost in the proccess.
He shaked his head and gulped his drink down in one go hoping to wash away those darker thoughts.
When he looked at wolf he saw his meal was finished and he got up.

"How about we go get stronger? So we can lead a successful boss raid."

Looking back to the preveious boss battle nick knew they we're underleved for this boss,

He got up and said "I'm in!"

Vyse got up and said he'd would catch up later.

"Where to wolf?" Nick asked when he saw the other members got up.

Everybody had just about finished eating except for Wolf when, with a mouth full of food still, suggested everybody go train up. Everybody was still kind of regretting the last boss fight because nobody was really prepared for it and a lot of people died because they were too confident. Amon's heart stung just thinking about the incident that happened on the sixth floor and he not dare bring it up during such a lighthearted breakfast. "Sounds good to me Wolf." Amon proclaimed as he called the waiter over and paid for his meal. He heard Vyse before he stood up saying that he had other plans already to go get some new gear. "Suit yourself man." Amon answered with a laugh and with that Vyse left the restaurant. "Hey guys." Amon said with a grin, "since the streets are gonna get crowded soon, I'd like to try out some roof hopping if you don't mind. I figured both of you have already tried it knowing how reckless you guys are."

Amon walked out the door with Wolf and Zwei behind him and they got onto the roof of the small restaurant. "Uhh ok guys, what do we do now?"

It was an ordinary morning. So ordinary that Wolf began to forget how fake it was. So accustomed to his new way of living, he didn't know what it was like to move outside the digital world. Trapped in this game, he thought but one thing. Escape. That usually brought him back.

The sun shone in his face as he followed Amon on top of a single story building. Feeling the warmth of the sun he pulled his thoughts to the present. He wasn't interested in getting out of this game. That much he knew was a lie. What he really wanted, was to free the innocent. He could care less about himself. And with that attitude, it makes it easier to risk his life day and night.

"Uhh, ok guys, what do we do now?" Amon asked Nick, Zwei, and Wolf. Wolf quickly scanned the area because scanning it any slower would be bad during their adventure.

"First, you examine your possible routes," Wolf began. "Then you trust your body to react accordingly." With a smile, Wolf led the way. His running style was beautifully barbaric. Unlike a track star, his posture wasn't speed and energy efficient, it was powerful. If anything were to bump into him, it would simply get knocked aside, assuming the program allows for that.

He saw the path ahead of him. And they met their first obstacle, they needed to hop up one more floor and then leap across to another building. Of course there were multiple paths to reach this end. He stepped onto the window sill and leapt straight up. Grabbing onto the ledge of the second story, he pulled himself forward, smoothly making it to the next floor. The next part was a gap but instead of simply jumping across, he used the wall of the building next to him to run across.

Stopping on the other side, he turned back to see how the others were doing. It was a good thing he had a light breakfast.

One moment ago the group was sitting and eating breakfest, the next they all stood on the roof of the building
ready to move outside the city to train and level up before heading headfirst into the next bossfight.

The sun was shining briliantly on the group as the stood waiting for someone to make the first move.

"Uhh, ok guys, what do we do now?" Amon asked the entire group.
"First, you examine your possible routes," Wolf began. "Then you trust your body to react accordingly." With a smile, wolf started to move as if there was no tomorow.

Nick watched him jump over obstacles and running along a wall.

"How the hell can that guy move so fast after eating so much... that wasn't something i'd call a light breakfast" Nick said looking at wolf.

Nick started to move himself, looking at his option he could go the same route that wolf had followed, but that woulnd't be any fun he thought smiling.

nick's running style was to run as fast as he could, but it was a controlled run, it looked like a run you'd have in an athlethic track team, no not entirely like that, more like he was used to running parcour.
He was worried about object's getting in his way, but he was certain he would be able to evade it, worst case he would cut it down with his sword, not that he'd know if it was something he could destroy, chances are that if nick tried he'd be flung back by the system.
So for now he'd just evade.

The first obstacle was in sight, he needed to jump up on floor before he could advance so he thought let's try something out.
around 10 meters before he needed to get up he jumped to the wall of building next to him, he controlled his speed and balance and used that to run along side the wall until he was sure he could make the jump, at the last second he jumped off the wall onto the roof of the second floor.

The next obstacle was a gap between buildings but nick simply used his momentum to jump over the gap making it barely making it to the other side.

Wolf was waiting on the rest of the group.

Nick a bit out of breath from the jump looked at wolf and simply smiled while giving a thumbs up.

*Kaito appears after having been in deep sleep mode from connection problems with the nerve gear and the server*
Kaito yawns and looks around the circle, seeing that its empty.
Katomer: "Where is everyone? Didn't the game just start?"
After looking around he spots one of the veterans and jogs over to them.
Katomer: "Hi, I'm Katomer. How long has the game been started?"

The person Kaito asks seems to be asleep on their feet.
Katomer: "Well so much for that. "
After scanning the beginners guide, I decide to purchase some small potions at the nearby stand.
Katomer: "I like how you start off with 1000 gold." "I should buy a better sword too.
After going through several shops, Kaito finds a cheap metal sword for 500 gold.
Katomer: "God, why is all the equipment so expensive!" Exclaiming to nobody in particular.
"Now how do I get out of this town? I think I'm lost."

After searching the beginners guide, he finally finds what he's looking for. 'The map can be opened via by opening the menu screen. Just swipe your right index finger down and go down to misc. In misc you will find a local map button. Press that and you will get a small map laid out in front of you.'

Finding the map, Kaito begins to head out to the rest of the first floor, going out to slay some monsters.

At first Kaito doesn't know how to slay a beast properly, but there's no one there to help. Having to open back up the beginners guide, he searches on how to slay a beast. It seems you can't just slash a beast however you want. The wild boar starts charging at him, and he easily dodges without looking.

Katomer: Can't the game be nice and allow me to freely look up something without any interruptions?"

Kaito continues to search the beginners guide but can find nothing on the strokes on slaying a beast.

For endless hours, he just keeps dodging while still trying to find the info that is missing. It seems as if the battle between man and boar will go on forever. Endless dodging, charging, and futile attacks against the boar. Hours pass, and the sky begins to turn an orange color across the sky. An hour later, a nightly rainbow flows across the sky ending with the sun showing the top of its head before disappearing under the plains. Kaito is still fighting the boar, getting somewhat tired of just dodging, but there's nothing that can be done, he doesn't know the sword skills in this MMO.

*******

After a full day against one boar, Kaito suddenly decides to lunge at the beast sword twisted out straight from his left side. A glowing light forms around the blade as it shoots out and splits the boar in half. Kaito has sweat covering his whole body from head to toe. He cannot believe that nobody helped him to learn the game. A window appears in front of him giving him 26 exp and 1 col.

Katomer: "After all that I only get one COL!!! What is this??? I worked so hard just to slay a single, weak, measly boar, and THis is all I get!"

Kaito stomps in a fury, until he settles down. With this one gold, he wouldn't be able to buy anything.

Since he looked at the beginners guide for so long, he's already memorized the whole booklet. He decides to head to another floor where most of the players are present.

He enters the town of Beginning and finds the teleportation gate. He enters it and announces Foretsa. Ending up in the new town, he's filled with new surroundings. He walks a few hundred meters forward, swaying slightly from side to side, and then collapses from exhaustion. Lying on the ground, his stomach rumbles out of emptiness, even though it is a game. Players exiting the portal after him just walk past him, as if not seeing him. Nobody gives a thought to the collapsed piece of flesh on the ground. None try to help. None look his way. The breeze gently blows, ruffling his long, silky hair and his light black clothes. He lies still, unmoving in the center of the town. The group spots Kaito lying there, and wonder if to help him. Nick and Wolf decide to just run off, but Amon decides to give the guy a piece of hard bread. He places it on the ground in front of Kaito. Kaito sniffs something delicious in front of him and eats the bread immediately.

Katomer: "Arigato. Watashi wa Kaito."
Kaito realizes what he said and translates it to English quickly.
Amon just looks at him funny for a moment and then holds a hand out to allow Kaito to get onto his feet.
Amon introduces himself and the other two people, Nick and Wolf.
Amon: "Hey what level are you? I know it's rude of me to ask, but this floor seems out of your league."

Katomer:"I'm still level one, sadly."
Amon: "Why is a level 1 here at floor 7?"
Katomer:"I got lost." Kaito looks down in embarrassment, scratching his chin.
Amon: "You really should train in the lower levels before you come here."
With a look of dissatisfaction, he turns and goes into the teleportation gate. "Mercury!" Kaito exclaims. Then he disappears.
