"Be down for dinner by six!" yelled Kira's mom from downstairs in the kitchen, which was met with a silent reply of Kira closing her bedroom door and tossing her school bag on her bag, ignoring the several papers that fell out and floated to the floor.
Being home now, Kira could get her escape from reality, and today at school had been a rough one. Again, stupid rumors of some 'sexual exploits' she had taken part in started circulating. All were false, of course, but no one seemed to care as long as it meant getting her to cry and hide away in the bathrooms during her lunch hour. Now, most days her other peers left her alone and gave her the silent treatment, save the few close friends she had. But in her online world, Rise of the Dark Ages, Kira was fierce, confident, and had made many connections in the year she had been playing.
So, with that in mind, she plopped down in her computer chair and fired up the PC, scrounging around in the mess to find her headset and put it on. Once the main screen blinked on, she clicked the game icon and smiled as the music played. She hadn't gotten a message yet through the games mobile messenger she had downloaded on her phone, so she hoped her friend would still be on to get through the dungeon. With a few hours to kill, the two of them would have no problems defeating the boss for the special loot dropped this week only.
Now with the main menu opened, Kira opted for her Mage character, one that specialized in close to mid range magic spells that did lots of damage, offered buffs and minor healing spells to party members, and if needed could use a short sword with average effeciency. While waiting for the game to load in with her character with her username of ScarletAngel, Kira clicked on the online friends list and scanned it real quick. Her lips began to pull into a frown until she saw her friends name highlighted that they were online. Grinning, she clicked on it and hit the 'Send Message' option.
*Hey there, still wanting to hit that dungeon today? I have a few hours to kill!*
