The holdout was quiet as a dark figure slowly made their way through empty rooms. Every now and again a sentry would appear only to be swiftly and silently taken down. They were a shadow upon the wall. They were truth and justice.
The closer they got to the heart of the lair the more goons started to appear. They would have to take a different approach if they wanted to take out the boss with the element of surprise. Initiating a no holds melee was not the way to go.
They holstered their weapon and with a quick physical feat, climbed and wall and settled safely in the ceiling. They took a few moments to check the surroundings and to quickly disable a small motion detector. They waited a long minute to make sure no one would come investigating. Then they headed off following their HUD to their destination.
It was far slower crawling and taking care of sensors than it had been on the ground. But it was also more prudent. It's a good thing they didn't have to sneeze though.
There was a soft chime from the HUD letting them know they were there. They stopped and listened for sound then cracked open the ceiling. There was no one in the room below. They waited a few minutes to see if that would change. It didn't.
Did the boss know they were coming? Mind made up they dropped down into the room with their weapon drawn. All at once everything was cast into a red glow and alarms all throughout the base started going off.
Usagi bit the tip of her tounge as she jerked the controller wildly.
"No. No. No! No!
" She cried as the boss decended upon her character. She watched in dismay as the HP bar started dropping fast. She flung her body to the left as if somehow she could help the animated pixels avoid the killing blow.
With a huff of displeasure Usagi tossed the controller on Mamo-chan's couch. Despite this being only a few hours after she had arrived, he still had classes. Which left her all alone in a strange country. Usagi huffed again and picked the controller back up.
"You're going down.
" Usagi told the boss as she hit the retry button. If she focused on the video game she didn't have to think about being in America. Nor did she have to think about how tired she was. The seventeen hour difference was killing her. But if she wanted to spend time with Mamo-chan she needed to stay awake. She couldn't sleep while he was awake. She couldn't.
Usagi forced down a sniffle and tried to push those thoughts from her mind. It had only been two years since he left for America. And he had written and called and even visited twice. Still, it wasn't enough. But she was here now. She had graduated and was here.
" Usagi shot the evil boss in the face. "And that!
She giggled with glee as the HP bar for the boss began to drop instead. Mamo-chan might play different video games then she did, but he did have good taste. As expected of her fiance.
