When Sachiko had woken up today, she hadn't really expected anything like this
to happen. She'd been feeling worse than usual over the past few days, so now she was in a better state she wanted to play some Emerald Odyssey and catch up with Megu-chan. She hadn't expected anything weird or unusual to happen; after all, this was real life, and not some anime or novel. Maybe something like this was popular in those kinds of things right now, but it certainly would never happen in real life, especially not to someone like her.
Thus, she was taken by complete surprise when it did
happen in real life, and to someone like her
Had she taken too much of her medication or something? This clearly couldn't be real, after all. It had to be some kind of hallucination or delusion or something. People don't just get sucked into an MMO in real life after all. That would just be ridiculous.
And yet... And yet here she was. The vibrant world of Emerald Odyssey surrounding her, the heat of the sun and the wind gently blowing against her feeling far too real to be an illusion. As much as she wanted to question it, the fact that she was here, in this wonderful fantasy world... In the healthy body of Hasselback, Knight of the Shield... It was too amazing for her to care how it happened. All she cared about was that it had
"I... I'm Hasselback! I'm so... So strong! So fit! So... So..."
It was an odd sight, really, one that made many NPCs turn their heads to stare as a small female knight with green twintails ran about gleefully through the streets, a look of pure undistilled joy plastered onto her face. To be able to run like this... Ah, it was a dream come true! Truely, this was the most wonderful thing to happen to her since... Since she met Megu-chan!
"...Ah! I... I should check up on Megu-chan..." Stopping for a moment, Hasselback pulled up her friendlist. She didn't even think much about it, just assuming that since she's in the game now, she could just... Do it. "Ah, I bet Megu-chan will be so surprised when I tell her I'm in the game! I wonder if she'll believe me though...?"
And so with a smile on her face, Hasselback sent her message...
Megu-chan! You won't believe this, but I got sucked into the game world! Isn't that cool? I know it sounds weird and like something out of an anime but it's totally true! I'll still try and join you for the raid though, just let me know where you are so we can meet up okay?
