Yu wasn’t the type of person to just stop and help someone with no reason, but then again, she had knocked the man over. It was the least she could do. She guessed. Was there in game etiquette? She wasn’t too sure. When she played with Alex, they mostly stayed away from other people unless they had to join in for a raid or something, but it wasn’t really her cup of tea. Most of the time, when they came up to a point when they needed other people she would tell Alex they could just do it themselves. It rarely happened but she wanted to try so they wouldn’t need other people.
The man she had knocked over finally stood thanking her. “You shouldn’t thank me, I’m the one who knocked you down.” She pointed out as if it was just crazy for him to thank her. Giving him a once over she noticed the lute and let her eyes glare at him. Was this some child’s game to him? That wasn’t a weapon. Turning on her heels, she muttered a rather audible “Pfft” before striding over the nearby merchant.
The merchant was an obvious NPC but he was kind, much kinder than what she was used to in real life. He didn’t have much in terms of quality, but he did have a fair amount of item. Quantity over quality? Well, to each their own. Glancing over the many items he had she noticed a set of dagger, and dug out a couple gems figuring they couldn’t be too expensive. The merchant whirled around at the sight of gems and smiled brightly.
“Good day miss! I see you have your eye on quite the set of daggers! Let me tell you-“
“They aren’t all that amazing” she interrupted him with her eyes meeting his. “How much? Surely a gem or two.”
The merchant didn’t seem all too amused by being cut off. “Ah, a beginner I see.” He chuckled. “No no, all new players start with their starter weapons, surely YOU knew that, right miss?”
Her eye twitched at how quick he was to shoot her down. She had gone to the adventurer’s guild. Did she really look over the fact that they had started with weapons. Deciding she didn’t have the means to argue with the person, she turned on her heels pocketing her gems. “Tch” he muttered angrily. Quickly walking in the midst of the crowd, she pulled up her menu and quickly pressed the equipment tab. Sure enough her dual daggers were right there. Sighing in annoyance, she rubbed her hand down her face. Yu had made a fool of herself already; at least no one saw it.
Her eyes wandered realizing she was next to the man she knocked down once more, she twitched. He must have saw everything. Too much of her confusion, it was as he didn’t even realize she left. He just went ahead, introduced himself, and asked for her name. Oh heck no. She was not telling him her name, not when she was just caught showing a lack of basic knowledge.
She fell silent as she tried to think of what to say before giving in. ‘He’d probably remember me anyways, I don’t exactly look normal.’ She let out a sigh of annoyance as she made her mind up. “Yu Shizhe” she stated simply and thought about his name for a moment. “Damascus… like the steel?” she stated and shook her head. It didn’t matter.
Yu stood there in the middle of the crowd looking at this guy for a moment before she realized she honestly didn’t know what to say or do. She could bail but was that proper game ettitique. ‘Do I honestly care?’ she thought about that for a moment, having a bit of an internal monologue. ‘Well if I want to be known, I suppose a bad reputation could spread but a good reputation would spread faster. Hm…’
