Recap on episode four, Zach huehn has been tasked with finding a woman to set his eyes on. He felt uneasy at first, but later on, he met the beautiful Leafa from Sword art online and has started a relationship with the hot elf girl. In order to make Leafa look more civilized and to prepare her for battle, Zach decides to take her around the market inside Sanctuary to dress her up and arm herself for future battles.
The sun rises in the morning sky above Sanctuary. Zach wakes up and stretches his arms to move freely without putting strain on his arms. Suddenly, he hears a knock on his door and hears Leafa saying, "Hey Zach, can I come in?" Then Zach said, "Sure thing Leafa, go right ahead." Then the door opened and Leafa walks up to Zach. "Nice dress Leafs," said Zach. Then Leafa questions Zach, "Leafs?" Then Zach said, "It's a nickname I thought about." Then Leafa said, "I'll accept it, but thanks for the compliment about my dress. It looks exactly like the one I usually wear when I'm not in battle." Then Zach said, "Yeah it does. But I am looking forward to today." Then Leafa said, "I'm glad you decided to set this up." Then Zach said, "It's important that you are properly dressed for battle instead of what you're wearing now, especially the leaf bikini you used to wear." Then Leafa said, "Yeah, good point. Anyway, I won't chew up most of your time, I'll let you gear up and we'll be on our way." Then Zach said, "Very well Leafa, see you outside." Then Leafa said, "Same with you." Then Leafa leaves while Zach gets dressed for the day. "This will be very important that I do this for her," Zach said to himself.
Project Crossover episode 5: The market.
Once Zach got dressed, he meets up with Leafa and asks her, "Ready to go?" Then Leafa says, "I'm always ready." Then Zach said, "Alright, let's do this." Then Zach and leafa starts heading to the market to prepare the elf for future conflicts. As they're walking, Zach said, "I think you're going to enjoy the market." Then Leafa asked Zach, "Is this your first time here as well?" Zach said, "Technically, this is my second time here. I've been here once when I was introduced in Sanctuary. But this is another branch of the market, and this my first time being here." Then Leafa said, "That is good to know. I hope this place is worth it." Then Zach said, "Trust me, I hope so too." Once they entered the northern gate, Zach and Leafa entered the main branch of Sanctuary's market. Inside, there were lots of tall buildings that surrounded the market with various shades to keep the townspeople cool, as well as many trader stands offering fresh produce for the people. As she is walking around the market, Leafa accidentally stumbles apon a man with an automail arm and leg. The man took notice and asked her, "What are you looking at?" Then Leafa said, "I'm sorry sir, I just got here by mistake." Then the man said, "You better be careful ma'am, if you get on my bad side." All of a sudden, Leafa notices a giant suit of armor walking towards the man and says to him, "Brother, I think you should leave this woman alone. She's new around here." Then the man said, "Very well then. Sorry for any trouble." Then Leafa said, "No worries mister." Then Zach catches up to Leafa. Once Zach caught up with Leafa, she asked him, "Who's this guy?" Then Zach said, "That's Edward Elric, the self proclaimed full metal alchemist. And the giant suit of armor walking around, that's his little brother, Alphonse." Then Leafa asks Zach, "How can a small kid fit inside that giant suit?" Then Zach told Leafa, "A few years ago, Edward and Alphonse started to use alchemy to make their lives better and a little more safer. But when they heard that their mother is dying of sickness, they tried to heal her, but unfortunately, they committed the ultimate taboo. Something strange happened, Edward lost his right arm and leg, and at the same time, he lost his brother." Then a flashback of Edward appears and he starts screaming in pain. Then he knocks over the suit of armor and draws a symbol from Alphonse's blood on the suit. As he's doing this, Edward says, "Give him back. He's my brother. Just give him back, he's my brother he's all I have left!" After the flashback, Leafa says, "That's just horrible." Then Edward walks up and says, "It's sad but true, because it really happened." Then Zach said, "It's nice to see you again, Edward." Then Edward said, "Good to meet you too, Zach." Then Alphonse said, "It's always nice to see you again, Mr. Huehn." Then Zach smiles and says, "Same with you Alphonse." Then Edward asks Zach, "By the way, who is the girl here?" Then Zach says to Edward, "Her name's Leafa." Then Edward said, "Oh yeah, I remember her now. She was probably the fastest player in that game she did." Then Leafa said, "You mean Sword art online." Then Edward, "That's the one." Then Alphonse said, "It was really unfortunate that you sacrificed yourself to save your friends." Then Leafa said, "I know, thankfully however, the Traveler resurrected me, and now, Zach is going to get me geared up for any future conflict that might happen." Then Edward said to Leafa, "I hope you take care of Zach, as well as him taking care of you." Then Leafa said, "Thank you Mr. Elric. You guys have a good day now." Then Alphonse said, "Same with you ma'am." Once they left, Zach recieved a call from the outfitter saying that the costume is ready. Then Zach says to Leafa, "Alright Leafs, let's get your outfit." Then Leafa smiles and says, "Very well." Then the two entered the outfitter and one of the outfit tailors said, "Here is the outfit we just finished for the new girl." Then Leafa looks at the outfit and is astonished at how accurate it looks like. She says to the tailor, "This looks exactly like the outfit I used to wear. You got the leather stomach padding, the puffy shoulder sleeves, the gold trimming, it just looks fascinating guys." Then the tailor smiles and says to Leafa, "We tried to be as accurate as possible, and we're all proud that you said we did a great job." Then Zach asks Leafa, "Well, do you want to put it on?" Then Leafa said, "Absolutely." Then the tailor brought Leafa to the dressing room to put on her combat outfit. After a few minutes, the tailor says to Zach, "Okay, she's ready." Then Zach says, "Awesome, let's see what she looks like." Then the tailor revealed Leafa in her battle attire. Then Zach said, "My goodness, you look fantastic." Then Leafa smiles and says, "Thank you Zach." Then the tailor estimates the price of the dress and Zach successfully pays the transaction in glimmer. Once Zach pays off the Tailor, she says to the heroes, "Have a safe day now okay?" Then Leafa says, "We will." Then Zach says, "Yeah, have a good day as well." After the heroes left the outfitter, Leafa said to Zach, "Okay, my outfit is done, all I need now is my sword." Then Zach said, "Don't worry, I've called the blacksmith shop this morning and they are almost done with your blade." Then Leafa smiles and says, "We should head there now." Then Zach said, "As you wish." While on their way to the blacksmith, Zach and Leafa encountered a small woman wearing a dark blue jumper and a pink swimsuit. The lady is accompanied by a Camerawoman who is taking pictures of her. Zach walks up and says to the camerawoman, "Taking photos for the press?" Then the camerawoman said, "Actually, I'm not taking photos for the Sanctuary press." Then the small woman said, "She's taking photos of me for a modeling magazine." Then Zach uncomfortably said, "Okay. Hang on a second, do I know you?" Then the little woman said, "You're Zach Huehn aren't you." Then Zach said to the lady, "Yes ma'am, that would be me." Then the woman said, "Pleasure to see you again Zach." Then Leafa said, "Who are you?" Then the woman said, "my name is Maki Fushimi. I am a Gravure idol for Sanctuary." Then Leafa said, "Oh, Okay. Sorry I'm not used to gravure idols and stuff like that." Then Maki said, "That's okay, I don't blame you. Back when I was a young girl, I was bullied because of my large knockers, so when I started in the gravure business, I told my camerawoman to edit the pictures she took of me." Then Zach said, "Then you had a brief conversation with one of your fans correct?" Then Maki said, "Yes I did. I was uncertain at first, but thankfully, he talked me into editing the pictures less often, and now I'm pretty famous." Then Leafa said, "That's good for you. Anyway, sorry to cut this short, but Zach needs to take me to the blacksmith." Then the camerawoman said, "That is alright, you guys take care now." Then Zach said, "You too." Then Maki waves goodbye to Zach and Leafa, and Zach salutes to Maki Fushimi. Once Zach and Leafa left, they made their way to the blacksmith's shop. The blacksmith shook Zach's hand and said, "Good to see you Zach." Then Zach said, "Nice to meet you as well. So, is the blade done?" Then the blacksmith said, "Yes sir, Leafa's blade is ready." Then the blacksmith pulls out a finely forged katana and hands it over to Leafa. Then Leafa unsheathed her blade and inspects the freshly crafted blade. Afterwards, she said, "I'm astonished that you made my sword exactly like the one I used before my sacrifice." Then the blacksmith said to Leafa, "I tried to be as accurate as possible, The hilt, the pommel, everything, including the blade, forged from elven steel." Then Leafa sheathed her sword and says to the blacksmith, "You are an amazing craftsman. I have to thank you for what you have done." Then the blacksmith shook Leafa's hand and said, "It's always a pleasure to help you out madam." Then Zach pays the blacksmith for the blade and leaves his shop. "Take care guys," said the blacksmith. Then Zach said, "Same with you buddy." After they left, Zach said to Leafa, "So, now that you have fully geared up, you are finally ready to fight for Sanctuary." Then Leafa said to Zach, "I'm looking forward to fighting alongside you, Zach." Before Zach escorted Leafa out of the market, someone decided to steal his titan mark. "What the...," he said. Then he noticed a woman with orange hair running away with his mark. "Hey you, Stop!," yelled Zach. Then Zach starts running towards the woman running off. Then Leafa said, "Oh boy," and follows Zach. The citizens around the market overheard Zach yelling at the woman stealing his mark and did everything they could to help him. At the same time, a woman with green hair and purple eyes saw what's happening and starts climbing up to the top of the buildings surrounding the market and runs forward to observe the incident. Leafa took notice and says to her, "Don't tell me you're working with that thief." Then the woman said, "I'm not working with her." Then Leafa said, "What?" Then the green haired woman said, "I saw what happened, I'm trying to help you." Then Leafa understood what the woman said and told her, "Okay. Better make it quick because it looks like she is planning on leaving the market." All of a sudden, Leafa notices a pole hanging off to the side of one of the buildings. She runs to the pole, then jumps towards the pole with her hands outstretched, and launches herself in the air. Afterwards, she flips forward, and deploys her wings and starts flying to the thief. The green haired woman saw Leafa flying and says to herself, "Man, wish I could do that." Meanwhile, Zach is still in hot pursuit to catch the orange haired woman. He manages to pull his weight cuffs out and throws the cuffs on the womans feet. The weight cuffs snatched onto the womans feet and she falls to the ground. Then Zach finally catches up to the girl and says, "Hand over my mark now." Then the woman said, "Sorry, but it's mine now." Then Zach pulls out his pistol and says in an angry tone, "Hand it over, NOW!" Suddenly, the woman pulls out a water bottle and sprays the water to Zach's eyes. Afterwards, she breaks out from the cuffs and continues running. After clearing his eyes, Zach said, "Okay, that's just rude." Leafa notices Zach being temporarily blinded by the woman and swoops down to the woman with her sword drawn. Then she says, "I'm giving you one chance to give up right now." Then the woman said, "Nope," and jumps over Leafa. Then Leafa looks over and says to herself, "Well that was unexpected." Then the woman blows a raspberry to Leafa and takes off. Suddenly, she hits a large mound of flesh which happens to be a giant belly of a tall man. That impact sends the woman down to the ground. Then the tall man said, "You gotta watch where you are going madam." Then the woman said, "Get out of my way." Suddenly, she hears the sound of a sword being drawn and feels a cold steel blade touching her neck. From there, Leafa said, "You're not going anywhere today." Then the woman said, "Says who?," and attempts to punch Leafa. Suddenly, the tall man grabs the womans arm and lifts her off the ground. Then he said to the woman, "You're carrying something that doesn't belong to you." Then the woman said, "I thought it would make a nice addition to my collection." Then Zach says, "Not today." Then Zach points his sidearm to the woman and says, "Give me back my mark. I'm not going to warn you anymore." Then the tall man said, "Do it Nora." Then the woman had no choice and extended her arm. That was the perfect time for Zach to grab his mark from the womans hand. "Thank you for the help Zulu," said Zach. Then Zulu said, "Anytime, my friend." After Zach grabbed his mark, King Zulu let go of the womans arm and said, "We need to escort this woman out of the market after what she has done today." Then three women who happened to be Zach's close friends showed up, once they arrived, Rachel said to Zulu, "We'll escort Nora Valkyrie out of the market Zulu." Then Zulu said, "I can always count on you guys, especially Zach." Then Leafa asks Zach, "Do you know this man?" Then Zach says to Leafa, "Yes, I met him in Africa. He is King Zulu, ruler of the Umatu tribe. Very awesome person." Then Zulu stepped in and said, "Zach and I are great friends. When we first met, we made a big alliance with my tribe and his military. Despite my oversized belly, I am incredibly strong and also quite fast." Then Elizabeth says to Leafa, "You should see him in battle, he is pretty cool." Then Leafa said, "I bet." Then Dory said, "I hate to cut this short guys but we better escort Nora out of here." Then Zach said, "That's fine guys, we can talk later." Then the three soldiers of Widow tech escorted Nora out of the market to pay for her small crime. Once they left, the girl with green hair and purple eyes walked up to Zach and said, "Honestly, if Nora was going to hurt your girlfriend, I would clobber her in the knee." Then Zach said, "You did great helping me and Leafa out tonight. However, she's not my girlfriend yet." Then Leafa said, "Yeah, we're still getting to know each other first." Then the green haired woman said, "Sorry about that." Then Zach said, "It's alright. Anyway, identify yourself." Then the woman said, "My name is Verde, I'm honored to help you out if anything happens." Then Zulu said, "She's a good warrior. She also supports my tribe." Then Leafa said, "That's good news." Then Zach says to Leafa, "The three women taking Nora away from the market are my closest friends. The brown haired girl is Rachel, the blonde girl is Elizabeth, and the one with orange curly hair is Dory." Then Leafa said, "You have some really amazing friends Zach." "Thanks Leafa," said Zach, "Anyway, I should put my mark back on." Then Leafa asked, "Actually, can I help you?" Then Zach smiled and said, "Sure thing leafs." Then Leafa giggles and helps Zach puts his mark back around his waist. Afterwards, Leafa said, "There you go." Then Zach said, "What a relief that was." Then Verde said, "Well I'm thankful that you manage to get your mark back from Nora." Then Zach said, "I'm thankful too." Afterwards, Zulu said, "Nora is a good fighter, but she needs to learn not to go after people like that." Then Zach said, "I sure hope she learns. Anyway, did you have a good time in the market Leafa?" Then Leafa said, "Yes, except when ms. Valkyrie stole your mark, but that was a good chase." Then Zach said, "yeah, that was a good workout. I enjoyed it, except when she slipped past my fingers." Then Verde said to Leafa, " Honestly seeing you launching yourself in the air and flying was a pretty cool thing to watch." Then Leafa said, "It's no secret that I have my powers from ALO." Then Verde said, "That's quite obvious." Then Zach said, "Alright guys, shall we head out?" Then Leafa smiles and says to Zach, "Sure thing." Then Zach and Leafa leaves the market while the residents of Sanctuary cheer them on as well as Verde and King Zulu.
A few hours later, Zach and Leafa returned to the Slums to review their experience from the market. From there, Zach said, "How was your first day in the market Leafs?" Then Leafa said, "Well, aside from the part when Nora stole your mark, I thought today was a good day nonetheless." Then Zulu said, "Yeah, like I said before, Nora still needs to learn. She is a good warrior, but she acts like a child." Then Zach said, "I sure hope I don't see her again." Then Verde said, "Sadly, you might, but she will be a bit more careful next time." Then Zach said, "This is not the first time I've dealt with people like Valkyrie. I've dealt with people far worse than her." Then Leafa asked, "Where are they now?" Then Rachel walked up and said, "They're dead, because of their arrogance." Then Leafa said, "Oh, I see." Zach says to Rachel, "How's Nora doing?" Then Rachel said, "She's in a cell right now. Hopefully she'll learn not to steal your mark again." Then Zulu said, "I mean she has to learn." Then Zach said, "we know Zulu. Man, I wish Lefteris was with us today." "I know Zach," said Leafa, "he would have been very helpful, but I understand why he didn't." Then Elizabeth said, "Yeah we talked to him for a little while, but I knew he was busy helping Lucy and the others out. He's a very good guy." Then Zach said, "I agree Elizabeth, he's quite the jokester. Anyway, I hate to cut this short but, I need to sleep." Then Rachel said, "That's fine Zach, we'll talk tomorrow." Then Leafa said, "Very well guys, hopefully we'll see you again." Then Dory said, "Yep, you too." Right before Leafa went to her bedroom, Rachel said, "Before you head to bed, I wanna say it's good to have you back." Then Leafa nods her head and says to Rachel, "Thank you Rachel." Then Rachel says, "No problem." Afterwards, the elf heads off to bed and prepares herself for the next day.
