Oh Starrholder, you have enchanted this luckless troubadour with your classic beauty and clever intellect. I remember our first pick-up group. We were waiting outside the instance together when I asked "Pardon me fairest maiden, may I request a flask of your finest crystal water? I am but a lonely wanderer who has a thirst to quench". You typed "lol" triggering your Night Elf's laughter emote. When I heard your lilting laughter my heart sang.
Right then I knew it was that cruel mistress called love. She wrapped her thorny hands around my gentle heart and pulled me into her bittersweet embrace.
In the instance it was business as usual. I was the stalwart knight, using my superior defensive abilities to keep the rest of my party safe. With your high attack power and relatively low armor rating, I knew you would be a prime target for our enemies. But you knew you could rest easy behind my armored visage.
Did you see how close I stayed to you? Nary a malevolent creature breached my shield wall to mar your flawless beauty. You and I stayed in perfect rhythm. You cast Fire Ball and I Heroically Striked. I Overpowered and you Frost Novaed. You Polymorphed and I started shaking.
I kept the quips rolling throughout the instance: "You’re just taking two empty halves of coconuts and bangin' them together!" and when I was the only person to survive the Rattlegore encounter I yelled "Am I the last one? I AM the last one!" But as you well know, the laughter at my wit was sparse.
I had hoped that your silence was indicative of your insecurities; that you were as nervous as I over our budding love. But worry not, when something between two people is so right, there is no way it can go wrong.
I was so intoxicated by our love that I could barely focus. Unfortunately though, all good things must come to an end. And with Ras Frostwhsiper down, it was time to end our night. But I was not ready for our evening to be finished. I inquired whether anyone else in the group wanted to try another instance.
As you recall the precocious priest was the first to speak up "tired goin to bed". Curse him and his insolent tongue! Once the thought had been put in my fair lady's mind, I knew you were more inclined to follow suit.
Coyly you mused "yeah i think ill go to bed to". I knew that if I wanted to make a move it would have to be soon. Do you remember our conversation together? Perhaps the excitement has waned over the past few weeks or maybe time has put a haze over your memory. Fortunately for you I had my chatlog on so you may better remember our exchange:
[XDragonslyerX] says: Twas quite a good evening
XDragonslyerX loosens his chain vest and sits on a nearby stump
[Starrholder] says: ya
[XDragonslyerX] says: Curse the gods for not dropping my set piece item!
XDragonslyerX drops down on one knee and swears vengeance
[Starrholder] says: haha
[Starrholder] says: you talk funny
XDragonslyerX tickles Starrholder playfully
[Starrholder] says: heh well i better call it a nite
[XDragonslyerX] says: Before you leave m'lady, may I interest you in flask of Goldshire's finest Pinot Noir?
[Starrholder] says: uh maybe some other time
[XDragonslyerX] says: Shall we set the time and place now?
[Starrholder] says: um, no thats ok, thx tho
[XDragonslyerX] says: Then I shall record your name to my list of allies and eagerly await the next time our paths cross!
XDragonslyerX pulls out his quill pen and records all of Starrholder's information
[Starrholder] says: k
[Starrholder] says: bye
After adding your name to my friends list, I took a few screenshots of you hearthing out of the dungeon -- so I may always have that memory. Sometimes I pull up those pictures and try to relive our magical evening together. How long ago that seems…
Have you not received my letters? I have written you every day we've been apart! I hope you understand the anguish in my soul at the passing of each second we are not together. But I understand more than anyone that absence makes the heart grow fonder.
How excited I was to finally see you log in last Thursday. I petitioned you not once, not twice, but thrice before you finally responded:
[Starrholder] whispers: oh hey
To [Starrholder]: Hello there! For a second I thought maybe you didn't remember me!
[Starrholder] whispers: oh yeah
To [Starrholder]: It is no matter! Have you gotten my letters?
[Starrholder] whispers: yeah
[Starrholder] whispers: thx.. ok i better be going
To [Starrholder]: Must you depart so soon? Alas, I have waited so long for this moment, it hurts me that you must leave so abruptly.
No player named ‘Starrholder’ is currently playing.
That last conversation has gotten me worried. You were so rushed; so hurried. I wonder if you are ok? Perhaps you are at the constant whim of an evil stepfather. Or maybe trapped in a loveless marriage; waiting for a tall, 15 stone man to free you.
Oh Starrholder, please stay well while I gather the information on how to contact you at your home. Your powerful prince in shining armor is not far from your rescue!
