The meeting of two souls

Mmmm” said Shiro as he sat up and stretched then he looked around in awe as to the new world he ended in up as for the last thing he remembered was going home from the store after work to buy the new vr game console that had come out earlier that day as he’s saving up for the Altogear and the game that can out as well as getting home to play it and next thing he know here he is. He got up and walked around checking his surroundings,”So I’m really in the world of Chronius huh, didn’t expect it to be so beautiful”. He then saw two wolf like monsters attacking a girl who looked like she was having trouble so he donned his armor as the White King(which is an all white armor with boots that can give a speed boost if need be,while the cape is golden while also acting as an invisibility cloak while the helmet and gauntlets are just for show) then he ran to help the girl then he unsheathed his sword(which is a katana with a purely white and the guard is and oval with the design of a serpentine dragon etched into it)then he sliced one in half then spun around slicing the other one. He then held out his hand the girl “Are you alright” He asks as he pulls the girl up to which she nods,”So what’s your name”, He asks,”Oh its Black Storm and what’s yours” She asks,”Oh its White King” He says as he smiles looking at her and he takes her hand just as he does so they hear a beeping sound and then a voice “Greetings players of Chronius I am Shiki Hikari the game master of Chronius and I am sad to inform you that as of today you will no longer be able to log out of your own free will and the only way to escape this place is to beat this game but if however should you die here or should someone on the outside try to remove the console your minds will be permanently damaged ,” both the White King and Black Storm has a look of both shock and disbelief on their faces they just couldn’t believe what they just heard, “What!Was that even real we can’t log out and go home” He says as he looks over to Black Storm who is just standing there shook as if unsure of she was unsure he couldn’t blame her though after what they just heard he was unsure himself I mean really being stuck in a game and the only way to leave is the beat it and if you fail your mind is damaged that’s some pretty heavy stuff to take in, the game master then chimed in again“Oh before I go I should probably explain the mechanics of Chronius so you have a better chance of surviving, He said as they just froze,Well anyways swipe down to see your menu”,They then opened the menu and saw several menu items,They nodded,“They’re for HP, the guard meter, armor status,weapon inventory and magic and within magic there’s a sub menu with things like maximum magic power and the spells you can use which increase as you level up,well anyways I’ll be going good luck at beating Chronius”, the game master then hung up,“Anyways what’s your name” He asked trying to change the subject,She just giggled,” I already told you it’s Black Storm”,”No I mean your real one” He says,”Well we just met so it wouldn’t be the best idea to give it away” She’s says while putting her hands behind her head,”Well I guess that only makes sense”,He says while scratching his head feeling a little bit like an idiot,”Well Anyways you wanna be in a party with me”,He asked.Her face lit up and she nodded in a heartbeat,”Well then that’s great!” He says as he opens the menu he pulled up to send her a friend request/party invite to which she gladly accepts,”Well then Black Storm now we’re in a party together let’s beat Chronius,He says as he holds out his hand for a handshake which she returns,”Ok then let’s go hunt some monsters and level up”,He says as he grabs her hand and starts running and after running for sometime they are then attacked by some goblins,”Oh great goblins here”, He says sarcastically while rolling his eyes he then unsheathes his sword while Black Storm unsheathes her NightShade Daggers holding each in a reverse grip with each hand,”Ok Let’s do this”, They say in unison as both charge at the goblins and the goblins charge right back towards them,The Night Shade daggers glow as she unleashes a barrage of slashes at one of the goblins killing it while with White King his sword glows and heats up as he sends a wave of white fire through two goblins incinerating them in progress, they take a breather but then a larger and tougher looking goblin then the others they just fought came out wielding a giant hammer and it’s eyes glowed red as it goes to the duo it swings its giant hammer at White King. He tries to block it with his sword but it wasn’t enough and he gets sent flying back,Black Storm decides to take the opportunity while the opening is still available to attack the Goblin General driving her daggers straight into the General’s stomach before taking the daggers in the upwards doing a moderate amount of damage to the General,”Swap!” She said as she jumped back and White King jumped in to attack the General himself he grips his blade gets engulfed in some white fire,”Nova Burst!”, He says as he launches a stream of fire at the General which it tries to block which partially succeeds it manages to block the head on force but the flames scatter and damage it anyway and to add insult to injury the guard meter that is a universal mechanic to Chronius ran out for it and caused to stagger giving White King and Black Storm the opening they needed as the charged at the stunned General both preparing their weapons as they did so they both then unleashed a barrage of slashes finishing with Black Storm stabbing it in the stomach and White King jumping up and stabbing it in the head endimg it with that blow he gets out of the way as the General explodes then they both sheathe their blades and fall to the ground exhausted from the fight,”Hey Black Storm you wanna get an inn and call it a day”, He says rubbing his eyes wanting to sleep,”Sure and from now on just call me Storm alright”, She says as they start walking to find an inn,”Ok you got it and you can call me King from now on alright”, He says,”Ok sure”,She says smiling.An hour later they find an inn and check in for the night,”Finally we can relax “, He says plopping on to one of the open beds, “Yeah you said it”, She says as she tucks herself in and gets cozy.

The next day, The White King and Black Storm were grinding out in a field fighting a pack of wolves with their new weapons,a hatchet for White King and a pair of armored gauntlets for Black Storm,”Eat this”, She said as she drove her gauntlets through one of the wolves faces,Argggggh, White King says he throws his hatchet at another wolf it then comes back as the wolf it was tossed at dies, he then catches it and put it on his back,”Well I think that enough for now”, He says opening a menu to check his level,Black Storm then decides to do the same,She was level 46, while the White King was level 60,”Ok wow your at a higher level than me huh”, She says with a look of surprise, “Hehe Yeah”, He said with a chuckle,”So you wanna go to the beach Storm”, White King asks,”Oh sure thing”, Black Storm says while smiling, “Well then let’s go to back to the inn to grab some stuff before they go”, White King says as they go to back to the inn to pack up for their trip to the beach,”Alright you ready to go Storm”, He asked, “Yup”, She said, they then went to the beach, White King was building a sandcastle, while Black Storm was enjoying herself in the water.King lays down in the sand after finishing his sandcastle.”You wanna come into the water”, She asks,”Sure”, he then did a cannonball into the water splashing Storm in the process,“Alright then you asked for it“, She says as she splashes him back, as they were playing around an aquatic monster was lurking in the deep readying itself for attack, just then a glow appears in front them as it warded off the monster, when the glow dissipates it reveals a little girl was their savior,King and Storm were surprised to say the least,”And who are you”,King says with a look of utter confusion on his face, “Oh my mistake I forgot to introduce myself my name is Aoi,a system ai”,She says landing on the ground revealing a gorgeous blue dress and sparkling emerald green eyes along with flowing blonde hair,”Ok wow you look amazing”, He says smiling,”Why thank you”,She says smiling back,”By the way I told you my name but you haven’t told me yours”, She said,Oh I’m White King but you can just call me King”, King says, “And I’m Black Storm but you just call me Storm”, Storm says,”Well then it’s nice to meet King and Storm”, Aoi says giggling.Meanwhile in the shadows there was a sinister visitor for King and Storm waiting.”So you wanna head back Storm”, King asked, “Oh Sure”,She said kindly, “Hey Aoi you wanna come with us”, King asked they then went back to their inn only to see it completely destroyed,”what the hell happened here” King asked completely flabbergasted,just then a menacing a laugh could be heard at a distance whereas King and Storm could hear it,”Who’s there show yourself”, the figure who was the source of the laugh then shows himself,Aw man your no fun the figure said slyly,”who am I you want to know who I am why I’m Corrupter”, Corrupter says as he strikes while King is off guard,”Gah!”, King said as he fell to the ground,”You bastard”, He said as he tried to get up,Corrupter then kicks King in the gut so as to send him skyward then jumping in the air looking like as if trying to save him only to elbow him in the back sending him careening downward hitting the ground with a hard thud as a he coughs up some blood but just then Corrupter grabs him by the collar of his shirt holding up his meat cleaver like weapon threatening to finish King off,”No don’t do it”,Storm cried out,”Too late girl”,Corrupter said as his cleaver came down just as it was about to strike something stopped it, “What the”,Corrupter said with a look of shock on his face, “H-How?”,Corrupter said ,”If you think I’ll let harm my master you’ve got another thing coming”, Aoi said with a look of rage on her face, she then summons a giant great sword with a menacing look on her face to which Corrupter then had a look that would make you think he shit his pants,Aoi then brings down the sword and tries to end Corrupter but suddenly the sword was stopped then a dark aura started emanating off of Corrupter he then started laughing,“You really think you could get rid of my that easily I don’t think so”,Aoi was then thrown backwards and falls to the ground,“Argh”, She exclaimed, “King , Aoi, Storm yelled while tendrils of darkness appeared sprouting from her body as the Corrupter was struck at several points to the point it seemed like he was dead, the tendrils and the dark that sprouted them dissipated and Storm rushed to check if King was alright, She was checked his pulse good for her he was alive just unconscious, while in the background Corrupter teleported to safety and Aoi was healing herself from the injuries,“Hey Aoi can you help me get King healed”,She asked to the Ai, “Ok sure”,Aoi said as she went over to help Storm get King healed via a healing spell which “Mmmm” said Shiro as he sat up and stretched then he looked around in awe as to the new world he ended in up as for the last thing he remembered was going home from the store after work to buy the new vr game console that had come out earlier that day as he’s saving up for the Altogear and the game that can out
