The girl in the video had been showcasing a video game with commentary. The mere idea sent Katsumi into a brainstorm. Her INT had started working overtime. Ghost may or may not have secretly recorded their master's silly victory dances. Katsumi had figured out how she wanted to debut and where. She only needed to push past her PTSD to actually do it.
Now Katsumi stood, in a blue tank top with short shorts and good hiking shoes, in the Sakuramori Forest. Her weapon hilt clinched to a belt loop along with her armor. It didn't hurt to be prepared. A small white device encircled her ear. That little thing stole her breath. This device held many similarities with the one that had trapped her in the death game LAO. It fit near perfectly over the scar where the previous device had attempted to fuse to her skin before her escape. Deep shuddering breaths wracked Katsumi's body.
"I can do this. My charisma has been improving. I just need my performance skill to level up and I can emulate Guild mistress Desiree or the twins. This is my battle ground. That stupid game and my uncle can't steal my life anymore" She finally murmured to herself. Enough was enough. Katsumi signaled Ghost. Let her Spasming (streaming on Spasm) begin.
Katsumi flashed the peace sign and tried to smile brightly as Ghost beeped. "Hey y'all, its your girl Katsumi! I'm here to bring you the sights of the Sakuramori Forest as I play Imaginary Companion, the LR game that just released! LR is Layered Reality for all my non-gamers or casual gamers!" She flashed another grin. Her fingers hesitated as she went to touch the device on her ear. A deep breath allowed her to finally activate it. The game blossomed into existence, layering itself over what Katsumi could see. "Alright! This game looks beautiful at first glance. I'm supposed to catch the companions and help them mature as I conquer the regions of the map. Apparently some buildings will act like keeps or castles? I'm not sure but lets dive in!" This actually felt really fun! Katsumi felt the grin come more naturally as she started into the forest. Let her start to gamer idol begin.
