DIM: Cold! by ArtemioM05 DIM: Cold! by ArtemioM05
"I want to hunt...YOU!" you giggle, looking up at her eagerly.

Darshee stares back down at you with an eyebrow raised.  "You sad delusional fool."


"Can we go back in?" you call out to the emptiness.


Snow falls about you in sheets of frosted glitter.  Ms. Darshee won't answer.  You know better. hope.  It's probably been...ten hours?  And she's overpowered and hogtied you once every hour, on the hour.  It might have even been fun...if it wasn't so cold.  Brrr.  Ms. Darshee says you need to grow more accustomed to the harshness of life.  You fail to understand how lying face first in puffy snow is a good life lesson.  But then...dark elves are weird.  You slowly flex your wrists.  After being tied up so often you have become very good at wriggling out of knots.  Even Darshee's!  Much to her annoyance.  A few minutes later you squirm free with a sigh.  "Well...I guess there is something to be said about being teeny." you murmur while sloughing off the wet ropes.



A small furry creature approached you.  A wolf?  You frown.  While it's not unusual for wolves to prowl about the castle grounds...they don't tend to carry backpacks or any other accessories. 

"Err...hello puppy?"

The wolf seems rather unimpressed by you.  It continues to sniff the ground.  If you didn't know better you'd think it felt it was too good for your company.  Which is a shame.

"Focus!" Darshee's voice yells out from the frozen wilderness.

"...Right." you struggle to your feet.  Well...Darshee is stubborn.  She definitely won't let you back into the castle until you pass this test.  Perhaps it's did ask for this.  But haven't really played your hand yet...

Still, you need to at least make another attempt.  Hmmm...To review...Darshee is a expert fighter, a master of stealth, and very very ticklish.  And you're...learning.  Hmmm....

No time like the present!

Do you?

A.  Try to ambush her?

B. Set some traps?

C. Wait her out?

B! Can't wait to see what the wolf does~
Also, we definitely can't wait her out... She's too tough.

Both A and B feel like the more suitable choices, but it's clear she's paying close attention to us from wherever she is so traps and ambushes already lose the element of surprise...but doing nothing is worse than doing something stupid.

B is probably the best approach, traps can still have their uses even if the opponent knows about them.

Well, I doubt traps or an ambush would work on her. The smartest thing to do would actually to have her get impatient and do something stupid. In that case, C is the best option
