Olive threw her cloak around her shoulder, gazing out of the window of her player home in Roslare. She dug her nails in the soft material, so real that for a sscond she was fooled, clutching the fabric and struggling with the opposing thoughts in her mind. The mage had grown accustomed to being a strong figure, to support herself and never depend on anyone, but the closer the time was, the more nervous she was. She pulled the blinds, plunging her room into darkness. It was empty, none of her things were thre anymore, except for her quarterstaff, which she had readied, harnessed with an ingenious system of buckles and leather strips.

The girl swung her weapon over her shoulder and left her room. Olive descended in the modest kitchen, where the remains of a poorly cooked meal sulked in a pot over the fireplace, getting cold. She looked around, empty-eyed, quite not wanting to believe that she was getting attached to the place. The mage accessed her UI, scrolling down to the 'Teleportation' tab and soon she was transporting between the city and the gate.

The gate.

A few days of searching Olive had found that impressive structure, stretching as high as she could see. A Betafly flew past her face, beating it's sparkling wings and slamming into and invisible wall, a force field which arched upwars, cupping the first level like a warm hand. The mage advanced towards gate, pulling out her staff and swinging it for a few warm-up rounds.It was light but strong in her arm, like a branch but smoother and easier to hold. She looked around, coughing awkwardly. She knew about the guardian, she had heard gossip from some NPCs.

"It might be nice if we just got to the deal." she called out, looking for any sign of movement. The nervousness had been relpaced with dumb hope and bravery which was never there before. And it did not have it's place. The mage wanted to also cast a spell, but her skill with her weapon had been growing and the time she would take to load a spell was too long. The one-on-one combat was different and new to her.

"I see, so you want to get straight to the point." The voice loomed over, mellifluous and booming from the protection of the trees. Or rather a single tree where a human-like figure sat at its base, under the process of transforming into a Wicken. Extending a limb out to the girl who had approached, branches and sticks crackling like fire from behind, he could only smile a hollow smile; he seemed to be missing an eye where the void seemed to exist and the bones around surrounded it like a boneyard.

Without warning, the vines dangling from the trees shot forward, aiming to entangle Olive within a web, the green tendrils working like tentacles. "If you believe this will be easy, you have another thing coming for you."

short post is short because i don't want to make really long ones for fights; hope that's okay. >_<;

yay short posts ^^

Olive's eyes landed on the barely human figure, the horrific aight turning her stomach. That stew was doing well not touch on the fire. All of her experiences with Wickens were a milestone to this moment. Flashing images of her and Lily's fight in the ruins passed in front of her eyes, but he shook her head. All of this work, there was no time to throw it away and be scared. She spun her staff and fixed the gatekeeper in it's eyes, or at least in the one working eye.

"Bring it on." she hissed and as the vines lunged at her, she dodged, sliding to the side and smacking them with her staff. Her grip ensured on the middle of the staff, something that she hadn't tried before but seemed light and effective. In the other hand she could finally light a small flame, load her spell. It was a good change from the double wielding.

A gesture eerily similar to a smirk crept onto the Wicken's face, watching as the girl began to cast a spell. "Too slow, girlie," he stated, his voice hushed and deep with the roughness of the bark weaving its way around his flesh. In the moments that it took her to set up her own magic, he had already finished his with a halfhearted incantation, the vines erupting through the ground and crackling like flames. They immediately bolted towards Olive without remorse, only seeking to entangle her and render her helpless.

The flame only managed to grow and inch before something long and thick curled around her ankle and up her calf. She imediately put the fire out and, spinning her staff above her head, she smacked the vines again harder and fighting to stomp them with her heel. She hadn't expected the gatekeeper to be so vicious and try and attack her, but maybe she should've listened to NPCs when they spoke about a weird creature by the gate who attacked travellers. "You're a handful." she muttered, without a glance at the gatekeeper, the man almost fully engulfed by a tree. She had a plan, but that would mean getting close, whereas the half-Wicken did a great job at keeping her at bay.

"As are you, trying to trespass here unprepared," Richter retorted, the vines reaching for her staff to pry it away from her clutches. He would take as much time as he needed with this and entertain himself how he liked. His movements were slow, like a giant taking sluggish steps, only his strides seemed to have him drag his legs on the ground. "You're a mage, but you are nothing but an amateur. You are not worthy of fighting me if you are unable to recite your spells with ease." Slamming her onto the ground as powerfully as he could, he took satisfaction in watching her HP dwindle.

Olive's breath was knocked out of her, her health dropping, her UI sceeaming at her that she was losing health. 'I can tell.' she thought, struggling to find a way to make the vines let go. Out of ideas, the girl propped herself slightly upwards and stabbed at the vines, stricking them relatively just as you would hold a cat by it's weak spot on the scruff. The vines curled away like snakes and Olive managed to get up, supporting herself in her staff until she could think clear again.

"Unlike you, I lived in the real world. And that is way harsher than you'd think." she hissed and, waved her staff in the air and began sprint sideway, subtly closing in on the Wicken. Finally thinks were looking up for her. She couldn't ignore the thin trickle of blood from her nose and her numb mouth, but she never less grinned.

With a bemused look to his face, he scoffed at what she said, not minding in the slightest that his vines were withdrawing. The only ones that mattered were the ones creeping up behind her to snatch her staff, ripping it away from her hands. She mentioned something about this 'real world,' and unfortunately for Olive, it did not get the reaction she had hoped for. Holding his hand out, the mana welled where it was, signalling that he was beginning another spell. "The only reality now is this one, and it's the only one I know," he smirked, examining the staff she had been using prior. "What a low level weapon. You're useless either way since you're wasting your breath blabbering about some place that you aren't at."

Olive pressed on, even without her staff, sprinting and, as she noticed that the gatekeeper was beginning to load a spell. She dashed diagonally towards the rrots of the tree, fisting her hand, her thin knuckles sticking out. As the gatekeeper was busy ranting about her staff and loading a spell, the girl launched herself with a battle cry and punched the gatekeeper straight in the half-human face, in its on working eye. She had never launched such a punch, but she was soon away from there, back to rounding the trees range of attack from a somewhat safe distance.

"Don't you fucking talk about me like that."

He was surprised when she launched her fist at him, wincing back in pain when it ended up blurring his vision. However, Richter huffed in response, seeing the splinters and bark chipped into her hand. With his hand still out, he elevated it, the vines shot up from the ground behind her, hardened and beginning the beating that she deserved. "Checkmate." She wasn't very good at this, was she? Those who couldn't keep a calm demeanor in battle didn't deserve to call themselves mages. Her attack stat was too low to do much damage to him, though there was a visible drop in his HP.

Olive stumbled away, slightly launched in the air by the vines. She hit the ground, this time braced and ready from impact. The ran as fast as she could to reach her staff, grabing the abandonned piece of wood and sliding away from the vines that erupted from the ground like volcanoes. Something was good, in all of this chaos. She had seen the considerable damabe done by her punch, so she was back again to the face. The girl struggled to advance as the vines slapped at her back and scratched her pale skin, but with a groan she managed to grab her weapon and stab the tree-man's face again with it, slamming it once strongly and then repeating the action, feeling her power draining away. She needed to put and end to this affair.

She dared to call herself a mage, and all she did was scurry around like a mouse running from the cat before being cornered. Not a single spell had been cast. Watching as the player scrambled around, eventually dodging the vines that he had summoned and catching her staff. Unable to move nimbly, Richter took the brunt of her pierces, before plucking her away with another vine, tossing her aside like a rag doll. The pain was there, and his HP had dropped to yellow, but he refused to let it show. "You sully the name of good mages. Now die!" A fissure opened in the ground beneath her, thick vines encircling her and making it nigh impossible to escape the trap.

Olive stopped, refusing to struggled and please the wicked creature. Even if its health was dropping below the middle, hers was only a little above the grim bench-mark. She paused to breath, dropping her staff to the ground, never taking her eyes off the curling vines. She needed a different approach, and an idea came to her as she was breathing heavily. She looked at the gatekeeper and put her hands together. Slowly but surely, mana began to charge and heat up, forming a small flame.

"How's this for a good mage, tree-breath?" she taunted him and shoved her hot hands into the vines, chizeling their surface like a saw.

Oh, so she could cast spells. From the looks of it, it was going to be a very weak one, but it was still a spell. "I see that you have the bare minimum of skill," he stated, his voice rumbling lowly with a threatening tone encroaching. While she had managed to get an opening out with the charge-up of the spell, Richter was unwilling to let it continue any longer or allow her to take the chance that she needed to get her victory. With a snap of his fingers, a nearby tree shook itself of its foundations, the roots having little to no grip, toppling over and casting a shadow on the player's figure.

She whistled, short and impressed of her handywork, but she had no time to spare. The looming tree threatened to crush her, so the mage dove through the escape in the vine cage and toppled on the ground. She heaved her breath. Her staff. It was still there. Her hand was swollen from the spliters that had dug in it, and she wasn't sure whether she could pack a punch strong enough to completely hurt the keeper. But she had something left. Her flame still shone, almost completely died down in her palm. It had survived the dodge, and now Olive was struggling to regain focus. She took in a deep breath.

'Thnk about home. If you get this right, you can move on, you can forget about this place. You will be out of here in no time. You will be back in France.'

The flame grew quite larger, emanating strong, hot fury, Olive focusing to hold it. If she dropped it, it would be the end of her. Her hands burned. She shouldn't be doing this, it was dangerous. But she had no choice, her staff was crushed under a tree. With a last heave of effort, she lunged at the gatekeeper and force the flame against it's face, pushing hard against it.

"You are standing between me and my home. We both know what that means, cherie~"
