"I'm finally here..... but i don't see anyone." Suguha Kirigaya mumbled between herself, looking around.
It was already a week that the young swordwoman returned from her training camp and that she heard about what happened to her brother and his friends.
Actually, Ordinal Scale was a game developed only to revive the daughter of the professor Shigemura, stealing the memories from SAO's survivors. Even Asuna lost her memories but, thanks to her brother and his friends, the conspiracy was defeated and all returned to the normality.
Whiteout any risk, Suguha was finally enjoying his time in OS, giving proves of her great ability thanks to her experience in kendo. For many evenings, she went to the "battle places", easily defeating monster, other players and increasing her rank.
And even today she was outside.
She had received a message from OS's admin, telling her that an important event would have taken place near Tokyo station. This new quest would have involved many monsters from SAO and even the AR idol Yuna would have been there to cheer the players.
In the same moment she closed the message, Suguha was already on track : she dressed up quickly and took her Augma. Unfortunately, her brother Kazuto wasn't at home, so the young girl hadn't the chance to get a ride on his bike but she didn't discourage and, taking a bus, she reached without problem the place of the event.
But to her surprise, she was alone.
In this moment the young swordwoman was clad in her traditional white and green OS outfit with black sleeves and white gloves; her legs were covered from grey stocking and she had short white, black and green boots. Her weapon was a katana.
A bit confused, the girl took her phone to check if she have done a mistake when someone approached her, "Excuse me, miss?".
Suguha turned her head to see who have spoken : in front of her, there was a girl. She had big black eyes and long hair of the same color, tied in ponytail falling from her shoulder. Her dress was the same of Suguha, aside its color : as her hair, it was completely black. From her height, she seemed of the same age of Asuna and Suguha can guess that she had a very well-trained body.
"I'm sorry to bother you but you are here for the OS's event?", the girl asked with her crystal voice. At the nod of Suguha, the black hair girl let out a sigh of relief "Oh, thanks! I had problem finding one of the guests and i was worried to be scolded from my boss. You don't have idea how much i was in troubles! Oops, sorry! I didn't introduce myself. My name is Liria and i'm one of OS's admin."
Seeing how much the girl was anxious and worried, Suguha gave her a reassuring smile, "Yeah, my name is Suguha Kirigaya. I'm here for the event but why there isn't anyone?".
" I am really sorry! When i sent the e-mails to the guests, i wrote bad the location! So i came here to find them one by one and send them to the right place. I'm terribly sorry for the inconvenience!", the girl bowed, as little tears started to appear on her eyes.
"No, no! I haven't any problem! Please, don't cry.", at the words of Suguha, Liria felt a little reassured and a shy smile appeared on her face.
"Thank you, miss Kirigaya. If for you isn't a problem, i would escort you to the event".
"Yes, thank you very much".
Suguha started to follow the girl as she pointed towards a dark alley; sadly, for the young swordwoman, she wasn't able to see a devious smile appearing on Liria's face.
As she followed the girl along the alley, Suguha can't avoid to feel more and more confused. The place was dark and dirty and it seemed they weren't distanced themselves too much from the centre of the city.
"Sorry, but are you sure this is the right way?" Suguha asked, as Liria stopped.
"Sure, miss Kirigaya. Look! You can already see the other players there!" Liria pointed towards the end of the alley, but dark as it was Suguha wasn't able to see anything.
She did a few step, passing near Liria, but in the moment she did it, the young admin grabbed her suddenly, putting an arm around her waist and blocking Suguha's arms against her body. At the same time, she put a soaked cloth above Suguha's mouth.
"Hmmff?!!", Suguha let out a muffled scream, surprised to this unexpected action. She tried to struggle but Liria's grip was too stronger even for her.
"You are a lot naive, miss Kirigaya", Suguha turned her head, as much as her assailant let her, only to see Liria smiled evilly.
Slowly her head started to become dizzy. Realizing that the cloth was drugged, Suguha struggled even more wildly against her captor but ,with every second, she felt more and more weak, as the tiredness got her.
In the end, unable to resist more, Suguha closed her eyes and fell unconsciousness in the Liria's arms.
Liria remained there a little, glaring with malicious eyes at the sleeping body of her captive. Evil thoughts crossed her mind, as she prepared the poor swordwoman for the travel.
When consciousness came back, Suguha felt something rough and tight against her body. Opening slowly her tired eyes, the young girl saw only dark around her. She tried to stand up but something prevented her to do this.
"Whtt... Hmmmppph??!!" hearing her muffled voice Suguha realized to be gagged and, when she tried to move her arms to remove the gag, she discovered to be even tied. (Wha....)
"Mmmmpppphh!!!! Hllllppphh!!!", screaming and squirming as strong as she can, the girl got the attention of her captor who opened the door, illuminating the room where Suguha was kept. (Help!!!)
"Are you finally awake, miss Kirigaya?".
Finally Suguha was able to see her predicament : her wrists were tied behind her back with nylon ropes. The same ropes encircled even her chest and upper arms, going above and under her big breasts. Even her legs were immobilized : other ropes were placed over her short boots, pinning her ankles together. In the end a white cloth was tied over her mouth, OTM gagging her.
Seeing the girl who did this to her, Suguha shot her a furious look, squirming in her bonds, "Mmmpphh!! Whhttt armmpph ymmpph dnnnpphh?! Lttt mmmpph gmmmpphh!!" (What are you doing?! Let me go!!).
"Oh, miss Kirigaya! You are so nice when your mouth is gagged! Your muffled voice is really adorable" Liria said, seeming excited.
"Now, now... don't be so angry, miss Kirigaya", Liria approached her and kneeled in front of the bound girl, "I can explain why i did this. First of all, that e-mail was a trap."
When Suguha regarded her with a surprised, furious look, her captor continued, "I'm not an admin of OS and there wasn't any event. I sent that e-mail only to capture you and do you know why i did this?
Obviously for the money, my dear!".
"Whhttt?!" Suguha's eyes widened, shocked. Her mind raced, incapable to understand. (What?!)
"She kidnapped me for money?!" she thought, "But we aren't a rich family..... i don't understand".
Seeing the dubious in her captive's eyes, Liria explained "It seems you are underestimating yourself, miss KirigayaYou are a national champion of kendo! Do you really think i can't gain money kidnapping you?"
"Mnnnoohhh!!! " . (Nooooo!!!)
"And instead yes! I will ask a lot of money for you and with those i will live a peaceful and comfortable life! Remain here, my dear as i go to ask the ransom. If you won't do anything stupid, you will be able to come back safe to your home".
Liria stood up and approached the door, "We see in a little, miss Kirigaya!".
As the girl closed the door, leaving Suguha again in the darkness, the young swordwoman struggled desperately in a last attempt to break free. But it didn't matter how much energy she wasted, the cords didn't lose a bit.
Feeling the despair growing inside her, Suguha curled up, laying her head above her knees. She hadn't other choice that to wait an improbable rescue.
