Re: NL the Anime
“Hey Horus, what does PM mean?” asked Lily as he continued to lead her through the maze of people.
“It means Private Message. That’s the room where if you want to contact someone. Say they aren’t in the same part of the building as you and you need to get a hold of them, that’s where you go. No one can read them but you though. That’s where your ID and password come in handy. We have lots so it’s always easy to get to. Hey!” Horus called and waved at a few people. “Look, I have a few things to take care. PM me if you need me, but just go out and have fun. Try some shit out.” Before she could say anything he ran off and was lost in the crowd.
Lily looked around her. She wasn’t all that sure on what to do. People were pushing and shoving, she couldn’t get through. She was getting claustrophobic. She felt like a piece of cloth in a tornado, spinning around wildly letting the wind carry her to where ever. Someone bumped into her back and she let out a scream of pain..
“Watch where you’re going Noob!” The person turned around and screamed at her, just inches from her face.
Before Lily could say anything the person was swallowed up by the crowd. Someone took her hand and began to pull her out of the crowd and against the side. Pressed against the wall she looked up at her savior. He was a man of average height, he had dark almond shaped eyes. He wore loose jeans and a red T-shirt with it, and she could tell through his shirt that he had muscles. He looked so kind to her. “Are you alright?” He had a thick British accent but Lily understood so perfectly.
Lily nodded and took a few deep breathes. “Thought I was a goner for sure. Thank you...”
Lily smiled back at him. “Thank you, Daisuke. I’m Lily.”
“New here I take it?” He chuckled slightly.
Lily’s body tensed slightly. She was sure he was going to call her a Noob again. Was it that obvious she had no idea what she was doing? “Yeah, you could say that. I’m not all that sure as to what I’m suppose to be doing.”
“Why not go make an Introduction Thread?”
He took her wrist and led her down the crowded hallway and off to a branch. There were a few people in there but not like what was outside. “See these message boards? These are what we call ‘Threads’. It’s basically to voice your opinion and stuff for people who aren’t here when you are, understand? This way, you leave a mark that people can reply to without you having to be right here. It’s pretty simple once you get the hang of it.” He pointed down the hallway. "Of course, if you are here and wish to chat with someone about a certain topic here in NL. At the end of each hallway are lounges where you can sit and chat with others."
Lily blinked at the empty board. "So how do I do this exactly?"
Daisuke came up behind her and pointed to a small control panel next to the board. "See this? The orange button is how you start a new thread, the green is how to submit it, the blue means you can edit it and the red button is how you cancel or delete it."
Lily was so confused. She didn't understand the point in this place one bit. She heard Daisuke's voice behind her. "Yeah. I'll be right there." She turned around but didn't see anyone but her and Daisuke. "Sorry Lily, I've got to go do a couple of things. You stay here and I'll be right back ok?"
Daisuke was running off down the hall before she could reply. Lily turned back to the empty board and chewed on her bottom lip. "I'm pretty sure I can do this..." She reached forward and touched the orange button.
It made a small sound then all went quiet. Oh great! thought Lily I broke it already! Just as she thought that, a small keyboard popped out from under the board. Lily had to take a step back to avoid getting hit by it. Lily looked around, she wasn't all that sure what she was suppose to do with the keyboard. She shrugged her shoulders and began typing anything.
'Umm...Hi. My names Lily and I'm new here, like most people like to point out, so be nice to me and hope to have a great time here!'
Lily pushed the green button and in an instant, the keyboard went back into the wall with her message in it. She looked up at the board, it wasn't empty any longer. It was her message, written forever in stone or whatever this material was made out of.
Use it now.
Lily's head perked up at the sound of the voice. She knew, almost instantly, what the voice was telling her to do. "I will not use this bracelet!"
Use it now or you will never have another chance. No one is looking and you've made your mark as Lily229 here, let someone else have some fun.
Lily gripped her head. "I said I will NOT be a pawn in this plot. I won't use the bracelet. I won't!" But she could feel herself faltering. She wanted to know what the bracelet would do. But she also knew, that if she used it, it'd be with her forever. I can always get rid of it. It's not like it's going to be attached to my wrist forever, right?
Lily could feel the heat coming off of the bracelet. It wasn't from the bracelet itself, Lily noted, it was coming from the charms. The black rose charms. Lily looked around. "Just for a second. No one will know I used it and everything'll be alright. The second it's over with, I'll throw the bracelet away. I'm not obligated to do anything."
She ran a fingertip lightly over one of the burning charms. She clenched her eyes shut, waiting for it to blow up in her face. After a few seconds, Lily opened her left eye and peered at it. Although it was still perpetrating heat, nothing out of the ordinary was happening. Then it hit her like a ton of bricks. The walls around her turned into a spiral of colors and shapes. She felt dizzy as she clenched her stomach, she thought she was about to throw up. A tingling feeling shot up through her arm and hit her body. Am I going to die?! her mind screamed.
She hunched herself over as the walls of colors and lights came crashing down on her like a wave in the ocean. She was being swept up, the light was to bright for her to open her eyes and see what was happening to her body, but she could feel it. Her body was on fire, burning through her clothes, ripping her hair tie from her head tossing her hair into a whirlwind of tangles and curls. She let out a scream, she was scared for her life!
