A note from eric_river

Welcome back to Twig’s adventure, how is it so far?

I’m enjoying this a lot, and I sure hope you are!

Things are picking up, so I'm having a lot of fun.

If you like it, don't forget to rate it when you're done!

CHAPTER SIX

If I die a hero, can we call it even?

Well, you’ve done it now, so here’s some very good advice

Getting stung once hurts a lot, so go and get stung twice

When will you learn not to go around chasing danger

Leave the hunting to your friends or the forest ranger

 

Twig already knew he should have stayed with all his friends

But he would have slowed them down, just like on most errands

So he’d stay and watch the portal and do what he could

If he could do anything to help he surely would

 

Achievement: Not Actually Helpful

Good job being selfless but no one else needs your help

Just go home and clean your room you sickly little welp

Minus one Attack point for being a nuisance now

You’ve already done more harm than most gods would allow

See, I wasn’t joking, take this chance to run away

Someone else will take care of this on some other day

Stop ignoring all my messages, or I’ll get mad

Don’t make me do something that will make your parents sad

 

As always, Twig ignored the status screens and messages

He would walk the path of one who used no statuses

He concentrated on the portal and quickly prepared

He pulled out a long knife that his kind sister had shared

 

Before too long, as he had feared, a swarm of bugs flew out

Twenty times the size of bees and venomous no doubt

Thousands of them poured out of the portal really fast

And Twig was standing right where the bug army had amassed

 

He held his breath in fear that if he moved they’d all attack

But he didn’t have to wait for soon one stung his back

He let out a scream that all the forest must have heard

And then once more message screen appeared to share a word

 

Achievement: Early Bird

Congratulations to that bug who stung this little dunce

Early Bird is an award that’s only given once

You and all your bee-like friends can have a level buff

Even though before you were already strong enough

Yes Twig, I know that these are not your stats I’m buffing here

But the bugs can’t read so this is where they must appear

If you still think that you have a chance then go ahead

It’s no problem for a god if one kid winds up dead

 

The message box hurt more than all the venom in his blood

Tears of grief and agony came out like a great flood

“Whatever god you are, I’ll kill you for all that you’ve done

Mark my words, you evil god, for I mean every one!”

 

Achievement: I’m Waiting

Big words for a little runt about to die at last

Dying to so weak a monster, make sure you die fast

In your next life stay at home where you belong, okay?

Finally, you shall be out of everybody’s way

 

Though he cursed his fate he found some comfort in one fact

At least he’d die performing a somewhat heroic act

Buying time while all his friends were safe out of harm’s way

They would bring the adults in at once to save the day

By the way, if you want more like this, then do not fear;

There’s a book called “Hero’s Song,” I’ll link you to it here

It’s a more serious take on fantasy in song

So far it is just over two hundred pages long!

This is getting hairy, what has Twig done for this to be earned?

This god is going to great lengths for the kid to be burned.

For a god to go as far as to buff the enemy well,

Is this to do with a past life where Twig gave them hell?

If I were twig, I'd go through the portal. I bet that mischievous god is actually one of the real gods kids who got his hands on a smiting tablet and is using it while his dads not looking. They all live inside the portal by the way!

What's with the tramp applying that monstrous buff!

I thought it was a tsundere but instead it happen to be a degenerate.

Soul Wolve ago

Woaw, he really went there. He really freaking went there, that's my man, Nietzsche would be proud of you my boy! Go forth and kill those god, so evil and abhorred!

adhding_nerd ago
