I open the celldoor, and walks up the stairs.
It seems like the Guard behind the counter to the east wants something...
"Let me guess, you want equipment to deal with the Mamono? Hn...
You better have coins, or you'll get nothing." he says.
"Coins? Why? I'm trying to save this village!" I say in shock.
Okay, I'm an...Outsider...does that make me such a bad person?
"Ha! No one expects you to succeed, Outsider. We won't squander our limited
resources on you! Bring coins, or you'll get nothing!"
I better get coins, if I'm going to fight the Mamono,
I need to be as much prepared as possible.
I walk to the Guard at the other side...
"So you've returned, Outsider...do you have any crimes to confess?" he asks.
No, this is overreacting!
"What? Of course not! I'm trying to help you people!" I say.
He frowns, and snorts.
"Hmph...you'll be back in the dungeon before long. That's where all Outsider ends up!"
I ignore him, and walks out of the Prison.
"So...I've lost my equipment, my shoes,
I'm stranded on an island where everything is obsessed
with tickling, and I have to save a bunch of people who hates me."
I say, not with much hope.
"What did I do to deserve this?" I say.
I look around a bit, and find the girl that lead me into the Pub.
She looks like something are troubling her.
"Hi, Outsider! I can't find my teddy bear! Can you help me find him?" She asks.
I accepted the quest.
I walk around a bit, and finds a house with a black,
or dark green colored roof,-I can't see correctly what,- and goes inside. I then talk to the man sitting in the chair.
"I have nothing to say to you, get out of my house immediately."
I am about to leave, when something caught my eye.
Its the teddy bear!
"This must be it, better take it to the little girl." I say, and takes it.
I go outside, and returns to the little girl, which is running around again.
"Hi, Outsider! Did you find my teddy?" She asks.
"Yes" I say.
"Yay! Thank you so much! Here, this is all the coins my Mommy gave me!"
She says, and hands me some coins.
My Reputation is now 5
The old guy to the north seems to want something, and so does the woman north too...
I go to the old guy first.
"You! I need a task completed! Come here!" he shouts.
I go to him.
"Um...y-yes sir? What can I help you with?" I ask nervously.
"Go get me some beer from the pub! Hurry up!" he says.
I go inside the Pub again, with a little bit of reluctance.
"Huh? The old geezer wants some beer? Heh, alright, take this to him."
The barkeeper says, and hands me a bottle.
I go back to the old guy.
"Here you go sir. Did I get it right?" I say.
He looks satisfied.
"Ah, that's it, give it here!" he says, and takes a sip.
"There you are, well I'll see you-" I begin, while I start walking, but he grabs me back.
"Hold it! I'm not done with you yet! I need you to do me another favor." he says.
"Erm, well..uh...alright." I say.
"Go clean my house! It's the one with the blue roof, and don't come back until
you're done!" he says.
Oh, this guy is starting to annoy me.
"What?! I...oh fine..(anything to make these people stop glaring at me...)" I say.
"Are you done yet? Hurry up! My house won't clean itself!" He says.
I decide to talk to the woman before I start cleaning the old man's house.
"Excuse me...you're the Outsider, right? I need some help." She says.
"Uh...what exactly? I haven't had a lot of luck with helping people today..." I say.
"My daughter has gone missing...could you find her? Please...
I'd go but I think she left the village.
She's helpless against the Mamono out there!" She says.
"Alright, alright...I'll find her. Where do you think she went?" I ask.
"I don't know...she couldn't have gone far.
I know she wouldn't go into the forest, it's too dangerous there.
Maybe there is somewhere else near there?" She says.
I'll help the old guy first..
"Oh man...alright, let's just get this over with. Where should I start?" I say.
Clean the Carpet
Clean the Walls
Dust the Furniture
"Better start with the walls..."
20 minutes later...
Clean the Carpet
Dust the Furniture
"Time to do the carpet..."
20 minutes later...
"Alright, time to get this over with..."
20 minutes later...
"Ugh finnaly...I hate that old guy..."
I see something up there, it's a chest!
The chest is locked, no matter how hard I tug, the lid won't budge!
I go back to the old guy again.
"I finished cleaning your house, sir...(I really hate you)" I say.
"Huh? Oh right! Good work. Now what else do I want you to do..." he says.
"Uh...really I need to-" I begin.
"I've got it! I'm not feeling too well,
so why don't you go get me some Fruit of Knismesis?
Just one will do." he says.
"Ugh...alright, alright! Fine...I'll do it. Where do I get one?" I ask.
" I think the Mamono in the Tickle Woods carry them. Get on it!" he says.
Great, now I need to defeat them...excelent...
"Oh joy..." I say.
"Where is my fruit? I feel faint! Hurry before I get hurt!" he nags.
"(Maybe that wouldn't be so bad...)" I think.
Since I only have the 5 coins I got from the girl-and I'm pretty sure
that would be too less to buy anything-, I go into the Tickle Woods
to try to find anything there.
Something is standing with its back facing me, looking the other way.
"What in the world? That must be a Mamono..." I say.
Oh no! It spotted me!
The monster giggles and suddenly charges at me!
"Woah! Hey back off!" I shout.
Before I can fight, the monster pins me to the ground, and begins tickling me!
I squeal and giggle, struggling to throw her aside,
unfortunately the monster is just too strong!
"Hehehe! Quit it! Get off! Hehehe! AH!" I giggle.
The monster snickers and digs her fingers into my sides.
I scream and throw punches and kicks at the monster,
but she is unfazed by the blows.
"EEEEHEHEHEH! STOP STOP! GET OFF! EEAH!" I scream.
I hear a sound...
The monster squeals and giggles, fleeing the newcomer!
"What...what happened?" I wonder.
A kind of insect flys towards me.
"Huh? Is that a bee?" I wonder.
I hear a soft giggle as the bee starts flying away.
"Hey, wait! Come back!" I shout, but it disepeared.
~The Friendly Mamono~
I don't want to get any further yet...
a chest! Might get that one before I leave...
I walk towards the chest, and suprisely enough it opened!
Tomato Juice was found!
Seems like it restores some of my Stamina...Might come in handy...
I walk out of the forest, and tries the place where I arrived...
I see a strange creature...a Mamono!
And that must be the girl I'm searching for!
"Tickle, tickle little human!
Mm, your essence is so delicious! I'm never going to let you go!"
The Mamono says.
The little girl is lying on the ground,
squirming and crying as a fairy flits aroung her,
tickling her defenseless body.
When she curls up, the fairy dives down to her feet and tickles her little toes.
When she kicks her legs, the fairy flies back up and tickles her helpless belly.
It seems like she hasn't noticed me yet...
Should I leave?
No, that would be bad. She needs help quickly!
"Let her go!" I shout.
"Huh? Oh goody! A bigger human to play with!
You look super ticklish! Here I come!" The Tickle Fairy says, and suddenly charges at me!
Tickle Fairy emerged!
"I won't let you continue this!" I say, and tickles The Tickle Fairy.
the Tickle Fairy loses 6 Stamina!
"Hahahaha! Awwww! You are no fun! Just enjoy it!" She says and grins.
the Tickle Fairy blew dust all over me!
I cough and shiver, my skin tingles badly!
I lost 8 Stamina!
I'm uncomfortabely numb!
"No..." I say quitely, and gets ready to tickle her again.
Unfortunately she goes first!
the Tickle Fairy titters and flies aroung me quickly.
I giggle and squirm unable to catch the fairy!
I lost 9 Stamina!"Hahahaha!"
the Tickle Fairy loses 2 Stamina!"Hahaha!"
Oh no! Better use the Tomato Juice!
I recovered 30 Stamina!
I lost 6 Stamina! "Ahahaha!
I get ready again, but she is faster!
Fortunately, I evaded the tickle!
the Tickle Fairy loses 2 Stamina!
"AAHHH!" She shouts.
I was victorious!
5 EXP was received!
the Tickle Fairy ran away.
Puh! That was tiring...
I walks to the girl.
"Are you alright?" I ask her.
The little girl lies curled up on the ground,
sniffling and still giggling. She looks up at me with a watery smile.
"Uh huh...thank you.." She says tired.
"Come on, let's get you back to your mom." I say.
I return to the woman.
" Mommy! This person saved me!" the girl shouts happy.
The woman looks happy at me too.
"You found her! Oh, thank you so much!" She says.
I can't help but share their happiness...
"No it's alright ma'am...I'm glad to help." I say.
"Thank you so much! Please, take this...it's the least I can do to thank you." She says,
and hands me a Tomato Juice.
My reputation is now 10.
"Thank you, Outsider."
the girl says before running off like the rest of the children.
I may have a chance to help these people! But only a small one.
Who knows what fate that awaits me...
