The fifth level of Aincrad is built like a gigantic labyrinth ruin. The two dare to take pleasure in raiding the maze for the treasures within. When they return to the Fourth Floor, they are asked to complete a quest for the elf Lord Yofilis – but this is where things start to get awkward for Asuna, because to complete the quest they have to face their least favorite monster…
