Katana walked silently down the deserted street of the town of the New Beginnings, remembering memories that had been both a blessing and a curse. A chime distracted her from her thoughts. 'A welcome reprieve,' she thought drily before looking back at the distraction at hand. 'A message!' she thought in surprise, 'Have I been overly friendly with anyone lately? Cause I thought threatening that one guy would have been enough to dissuade him.' She shook her head clear before swiping her hand down to open the message. It was from Kirito...and he was asking for help. 'How odd,' she thought, 'But we could have some fun with this,' she continued wickedly. As she walked a smile appeared on her face that, had there been anyone on the streets, they would have scurried away immediately.
