I don't own Digimon or anything associated with it I do however own the plot and any OC's so please don't steal them.

Bold is when the Agunimon is speaking, Bold and Italic is Burninggreymon, and Italic is when Takuya is speaking, I did this since the scene will be taking place in his mind.

Chapter 9

Off we go!

"Oh I remember that, why didn't you just say it, Takatomon?"

Geomon asked

"I don't get it." Thomas sighed "How in the world can everyone lose their memories, there was nothing strange about the fog, only that it was grey, it should be impossible!"

"But it isn't," Marcus said "and for some reason we were less affected."

"Yea-but why?" Yoshi asked butting into the conversation

"No idea." Marcus and Thomas said at the same time

"But," Marcus said "I don't know why but I'm still losing my memories, slower but still…" the other two looked at each other; they had noticed the same thing.

Thomas sighed "Well I guess anything is possible in the digital world as we've learned before," he said "but I still don't see how that fog could erase memories…unless perhaps it doesn't really erase them."

"Hmm what do you mean?" Yoshi asked

"Maybe instead the fog uses small particles that when we breathe them in they can make their way into our memories and push them into the farthest depths of our minds, making those memories inaccessible." Thomas explained

"And how did you think of this theory, and especially think it was possible?" Yoshi asked

"(1) Because it's just about the same way that the memory erasers we used to use at DATS work, you see they send a small blast of air when the light goes off, the air is a strong sleeping gas, and hidden in the gas are small micro particles and those particles do the same thing I just explained, only it works faster because of the flash of light, and because the target is asleep." Thomas explained

"Ok, so yea and I don't think that I've ever seen anyone but us three get free of it," Yoshi said then spoke a minute later "and that must be why we got training like we did." The other two looked at her questioningly "Oh come on I expected Marcus to forget but you to Thomas? Oh well, don't you remember that we got training where certain memories were erased and then if we wanted them back the we had to make them resurface ourselves, not using the reverse switch." She finished looking at Marcus like she was his mother

Marcus suddenly got a bright face full of understanding "Oh that training…oops…but really how in the world was I supposed to remember that I wasn't supposed to use the reverse switch?"

"Oh I don't know, maybe you should use your brain!" Yoshi snapped whacking him on the head

"Stop this won't get us anywhere!" he said as the other two fought, then seconds later they began to get blank looks, one then the other, and he noticed Joe and Kari were looking pretty blank as well, then saw that Takuya was sitting in an odd position, then being the doctor he was noticed the bandage around his ankle was gone and yet he seemed perfectly fine, then there was the odd position he had gotten into, he was sitting cross legged, eyes closed, and his thumbs, middle, and pinky fingers were all touching at the tips while his last four were facing inward his hands were facing out from his chest, and to top it all off he was floating with an orange aura around him. "What in the world?"

"Shut-up Thomas." He said opening one eye "I need to keep focused to finish this." Then he closed his eye again

"Fini-" Thomas started to ask but was cut off with a look from Takuya, and he went silent then a few minutes later Koji woke up and he saw him stand then move towards Takuya, there was a brief ten second conversation and Koji began to get into the odd position Takuya was in, only his hands were facing up, and his aura was white; About five minutes later, Kouichi woke up and walked over to them then after another brief conversation Kouichi sat down, making the three into a triangle, and got into the right position only his hands were facing down, and his aura was black, then as soon he was in the air level to them a black beam and a white beam went towards Takuya, and just at the same time two orange beams went towards Koji and Kouichi, then to complete the triangle one beam from each of the twins went towards each other, and all of the beams hit the target at the same time, then everything went multicolored as the three colors converged into a kind of sparkly powder then he took one breath of it and blacked out.

Safe House 60 minutes ago

Takuya sighed "This sucks! Everyone is leaving, and I'm stuck here in the Safe House with the two of you."

"Hey it isn't so bad," Joe said, he was watching Kari as she slept against the wall, though she had started to wake up again "and since Kari's waking up again you'll have another of us to converse with, I'm sure we can find some topic that we can all relate to."

"Yea alright I guess I'll trust you." Takuya sighed watching as the last two people left the Safe House, and began to walk away from the entrance but before they walked away he gathered that something was completely destroyed, because someone asked "What happened here?"

Kari groaned, why oh why couldn't she make it out without a scratch like she always used to in her first adventure, "Aw I have the worst headache ever." She sighed reminding the two boys amazingly like Tai, Takato, Takuya himself (2), and Marcus, they laughed a bit.

"Goodness you must be turning into Tai." Joe said as he laughed

"Well we do share a room, so we've spent a lot, and probably more time then we want to together." She said

"That is true I was lucky that I didn't have to share a room with either of my brothers." Joe said

"How many brothers do you have?" Takuya asked

"Two," Joe answered "their both older than me."

"What about you Takuya?" Kari asked

"I have a brother," he answered "he's younger than me, and…aw crap, curse me!" Takuya suddenly exclaimed

"Huh what's wrong?" Joe asked

"I reeeeeally hope time froze like it did during our first adventure, because if not I will be dead the second I enter my house, I'm gone on Shinya's birthday…again, but last time I got lucky and time froze but this time, I promised mom I would be home in time for the party, and Shinya made me pinky swear, so yea I would rather not be locked in my room for the rest of the summer." Takuya said, the other two looked at him in disbelief, just how many of his little brother's birthdays had he missed, and Takuya as though reading their minds answered "I missed his 2nd, dad got delayed as he was driving home from a camping trip, I just happened to have been shoved into the car three days earlier by my mom, telling her we wouldn't be back in time, then his fourth 4th once again, dad was late, he usually is, that's why I was asleep by the time he wished me a happy 10th birthday, and then I left for the digital world on his 5th, and now his 6th."

"Oh." Joe and Kari said at the same time

"But I must say Shinya has quite the Koji streak, I think that it's because Koji comes over so we can discus ideas on how to prank the rest of the team, and now Kouichi's rubbing off to, but he does have some great prank ideas." Takuya said forming his usual grin "So, either of you into soccer?"

"Yea, but only watching the games, I've only played once or twice." Kari said

"Same here, but that's to be expected considering Tai, Davis, and Sora play so much." Joe said

Takuya laughed a little "Yep that sounds like my group I'm the only one except Tommy who will play a game once in a while." He still had a grin but then it disappeared as he took a face that showed he was thinking "Joe, your main element is water right?"

"Yea." Joe answered

"And Kari, you have the power of light right?"

"Yes." She answered

"I want to try something; you see my ankle is almost healed." Takuya said

"What? But that isn't possible." Joe said "That should take a month to heal not a day."

Takuya sighed and took a minute to start "Well last night me Tommy and Koji thought of something, If water is life and healing, and light brings life as well, then maybe Tommy could use water and Koji could magnify the effect using his light, so Tommy used some water and Koji put light on it and my ankle almost healed but, by the time we got it as healed as it is the other two were to tired to keep going so I want you two to try." Joe and Kari looked at each other

"Ok, we'll try." Joe said as Kari nodded

"So Joe you need water just try to collect it around your hand once I make it visible, and then Kari, you just figure out how to make light." Takuya said, took off the bandage, and began flaring up some fire not hot enough to burn anyone to close to it, but hot enough to make steam.

"I-I did it." Joe said as all of the steam began to race towards his hand (3), then Kari shone making the light needed, and after about twenty minutes of healing his ankle was as good as new.

They went on to talk until Mimi yelled "I found him." But there was a ruckus, and they noticed fog seeping into the room and boy was it thick, and finally after five minutes of being in the dark about what was going on almost everyone fell into the Safe House, poor Thomas, Marcus, and Yoshi at the bottom.

Takuya then listened to the conversation the three had with practiced ease

"No idea." Marcus and Thomas said at the same time

"But," Marcus said "I don't know why but I'm still losing my memories, slower but still…" the other two looked at each other; they had noticed the same thing.

Thomas sighed "Well I guess anything is possible in the digital world as we've learned before," he said "but I still don't see how that fog could erase memories…unless perhaps it doesn't really erase them."

"Hmm what do you mean?" Yoshi asked

"Maybe instead the fog uses small particles that when we breathe them in they can make their way into our memories and push them into the farthest depths of our minds, making those memories inaccessible." Thomas explained

"And how did you think of this theory, and especially think it was possible?" Yoshi asked

"(4) Because it's just about the same way that the memory erasers we used to use at DATS work, you see they send a small blast of air when the light goes off, the air is a strong sleeping gas, and hidden in the gas are small micro particles and those particles do the same thing I just explained, only it works faster because of the flash of light, and because the target is asleep." Thomas explained

This helped Takuya, he now had understanding, and so if he could talk to his spirits maybe they would know what to do, so he began to meditate, though it was a bit hard considering he had a hard time staying still for more than five seconds.

"Ah Takuya, I see you have figured out how to find us in your mind, very good." Then everything was bathed in a bright light and when the light faded Takuya saw Agunimon and Burninggreymon.

"Hello, I was hoping to talk to you."

"Oh yes we know why you have searched for us in your mind,"

"We can see everything that goes on inside, and outside of your mind."

"Okay, well then do you have any advice?"

"Your bodies are not suited to this plain of existence,"

"so to make it so you can survive here small amounts of data is pressed into you as you travel through the gate,"

"when you come through the other end of the gate you are half human; half digital,"

"and though this helps you survive it has drawbacks;"

"Being half human half digital, you are all slightly unstable, and so you are all more susceptible to digital and bacterial illness,"

"the fog was dense with small bacterial particles that are alive, and while they are human bacteria, it is also half digital,"

"do you see what we are saying? Being the same structure as you children it is the perfect weapon."

"Alright then how do I stop it?"

"You will need the help of the warrior of Light,"

"But to keep the balance of power the warrior of Darkness must help as well, get into the shape of a triangle, and share your power with one another,"

"it is an ancient formation used by the three of us before, it will turn your power into solid powder,"

"just focus on what you want the powder to do as it is being cast, and it will do just that."

"But Koji and Kouichi are out cold, and even if I woke them up somehow they wouldn't remember anything."

"Ah you can burn the particles already affecting them, use your fire, destroy the small particles, then once you have one it will go faster to get the last one."

"Anything else I should know?"

"You need to get into certain positions that represent your place."

"You will need to sit cross legged, eyes closed, your thumbs, middle, and pinky fingers all touching at the tips, your last four fingers facing inward, and both your hands facing forward, this pose represents neutrality,"

"but it is essential though to have power so, light will be in the same pose except his hands facing up, this represents a flow of positive energy;"

"and last but not least Darkness, again he will be in the same position, except his hands will be facing down, this is a representation of negative energy and essential, because so much positive energy will be flowing, there must be negative energy, so forming a triangle you will be able to create the powder and as I said earlier it will do what you focus as your goal of course the powder will be sparkley."

"Anything else?"

"You'll begin floating."

"Alright, one more thing, as you were explaining this to me you knew all about the digital bacteria, have you encountered it before?"

"Some one, a human, he appeared one day, didn't stay long, but before he disappeared he used the same thing on the entire digital world, that was the most recent time that we've used the ancient form of digital magic."

"So it's magic in the form of data, huh?"

"Yes." (5)

"Well I had better go I've got to get started."

"See ya." Then there was a flash of light and Takuya was once again sitting on the ground in the safe house but nothing had changed it was as though time had frozen while he was talking with his spirits.

"Alright let's do this!" he said to himself, and so he got into position and began to meditate starting to float after three minutes, but focusing solely on Koji's mind then after feeling the problem he burned the digital bacteria.

"What in the world?" Thomas asked

"Shut-up Thomas." He said opening one eye "I need to keep focused to finish this." Then he closed his eye again

"Fini-" Thomas started to ask but Takuya gave him a look and he went silent, then a few minutes later Koji woke up and moved towards Takuya

"Alright focus on little bacteria in Kouichi's mind, and then when he gets here I'll explain what to do next." Takuya briefly explained

"Am I supposed to get into the same position your in?" Koji asked seeming a bit weirded out about it

"Yes only face your hands up." and so Koji began to get into the odd position Takuya was in, only his hands were facing up, and his aura was white; About five minutes later, Kouichi woke up and walked over to them.

"Hey." Koji greeted his twin

"Hi." Kouichi replied

"Alright, you need to pour your energy into one place so that it can gather into the one place and become solid, once it's solid it will become powder, so long as we keep focused on what we want it to do,-" Takuya started to explain

"And what are we focusing on?" Koji asked

"Getting rid of the bacteria making everyone loose their memories, so anyways the powder should be able to get rid of the digital bacteria, so Koji focus on making positive energy, and Kouichi negative, I'm neutral." Takuya explained

"Am I supposed to be in the same position your in?" Kouichi asked

"Ha, yea I asked the same thing, so sit down." Koji said

"Only face your hands down, and sit over there so we're in a triangle." Takuya said, and so Kouichi sat down, making the three into a triangle, and got into the right position only his hands were facing down, and his aura was black, then as soon he was in the air level to them a black beam and a white beam went towards Takuya, one from each of the twins, and just at the same time two orange beams from Takuya went towards Koji and Kouichi, then to complete the triangle one beam from each of the twins went towards each other, and all of the beams hit the target at the same time, then everything went multicolored as the three colors converged into a kind of sparkly Silver, Black and Orange powder then after one breath of it the three blacked out.(6)

When Koji came to he was happy to have every memory he had before going into the fog only everything was sparkly, though it didn't seem like anything could have happened to him, then it hit him.

"Please tell me this isn't the powder, it'll take forever to get off my jacket, and if it is how am I breathing it?" Then he sat up and found it was indeed the powder, but the problem was it was everywhere, on and under his clothing, not to mention it was about a foot and a half deep.

"Huh, what's going on here?" he heard Tai ask, Koji only worried about the seemingly glued on sparkles, didn't notice that everyone but Takuya was sitting up, this count included the digimon, all of them coated in sparkles, but even so he decided to answer Tai's question.

"It's the result of me Kouichi and Takuya saving your butts." Everyone looked at Koji, "Now I'm going to start looking for Takuya." He said trudging through the foot and a half of powder kicking more up and getting more sparkles attached to him, by the time he had covered about one eight of the room, let's just say he was shinier than a well polished Diamond, and leave it at that, and by that time everyone else had gotten up and joined in, they all just walked around figuring some one was bound to step on him eventually.

"Hello." Came the groggy voice of Takuya and by the look on his face he seemed to have been sleeping the whole time, and not only that but he was hardly sparkly, instead he had a ball of flame around him.

Rika was the first to react to this little detail "W-what how, HOW? The rest of us all look like freaking SPARKLEPIRES!"

"Unlike Koji and Kouichi who could have avoided the sparkles I got smart, and after taking a breath of it I put up a shield to protect me from them, I've honestly never been one for sparkles, and I'm glad for that because I had no idea they would stick." Takuya said smugly, Rika looked murderous at this statement, as did Koji, Matt, and over half the rest of the room, the rest were delighted or didn't care, although Ryo looked embarrassed, probably because he was very sparkly, though he was the next to speak.

"So Rika what was it you said earlier? Sparklepires?" Rika blushed looking a bit embarrassed

"My mom made me read the whole twilight series, and watch the movies, the vampires are sparkly, so their often referred to as sparklepires."

Amiliana then spoke up "I did the same thing had a hard time setting the books down, I even had the mini version, then John finally hid them."

"So is that what he had in his pocket." Gotsumon mused out loud joining in

"What, He had it all along?"

"It appears so." Gotsumon said

"Come on someone here has to like Harry Potter!" J.P. Exclaimed

"We have that in our dimension; it's why Yolei shut herself in her room reading and watching movies for three months." Ken said putting heavy emphasis on 'three months'

Yolei blushed "It isn't like you haven't had your fair share of reading on and on never leaving the bed, mister I'm almost done with the first book of the Blegariad give me five minutes' an hour later, and I come over to find you in the first book of the Mallorean."

"Oh I've read Harry Potter!" Jeri spoke up

"I've read the Belgariad and the Mallorean." Thomas said

"Last Dragon Chronicles!" Marcus said enthusiastically

Then Tommy decided to join in "Boxcar Children."

"Land of Elyon." Sora yelled

"American Girl." Mimi yelled, and so the list went on…and on…and on…and the digimon just stood back and watched as everyone kept yelling odd names

But after five minutes of this it was getting way to loud so all of the digimon decided that it was time to quiet them down "QUIET!" they all yelled the one word kept bouncing off the walls until it finally faded away.

"You can be so noise sometimes." Tai's Agumon said

"Yea, and all you were doing was shouting out odd names." Geomon finished

"Geomon, those weren't just names, those were the names of books." Takato said

"Books?" Geomon asked

"Those things I would always read at night."

"Oh I remember that, why didn't you just say it, Takatomon?" Geomon asked

Takato sighed as Goamon spoke "See I told you."

"Why does he call you Takatomon?" Davis asked

"I don't know he just does." Takato answered

"Now with that aside we really should go and start fixing the town, or it's going to take forever and then it'll take us longer to be able to go find T.K., and Patamon." Goamon said

"He's right." Tai said remembering their situation

"So let's get out of here, get the digimon out, and get working." Matt said having momentarily forgotten what had just happened once again remembered his little brother's situation, and once again looked depressed.

Takuya sighed "He's right, the air outside should be safe again, so it's probably best if we start working."

"Before that, I would like to know, how is your ankle ok, I mean it hasn't been that long, I don't even think a day, so how can you be standing perfectly fine?" Thomas asked and everyone, but Koji, Tommy, Joe, and Kari looked at Takuya questioningly, although some of the younger kids didn't understand.

"Well…" Takuya began, Zoe's eyes flashed at the tone of his voice, boy he was in for it now "Well last night me Tommy and Koji thought of something, If water is life and healing, and light brings life as well, then maybe Tommy could use water and Koji could magnify the effect using his light, so Tommy used some water and Koji put light on it and my ankle almost healed but, by the time we got it as healed as it was the two were to tired to keep going, so I asked Joe and Kari to try and it was healed completely."

Zoe was a bit upset they hadn't said anything, but decided to corner the three later, J.P. was thinking about the same thing, while Kouichi was trying to get some of the sparkles clinging to him off, and all of the warrior spirits, human and beast, were laughing their heads of as they saw everyone trying to get the sparkles off.

"Grrrrr, these dang sparkles won't come off!" Kazu yelled in frustration as he tried to pick them off his shirt, he was currently waiting for Guardromon to finish trying to pick sparkles off his circuits, but the only way they would move was to scoot a millimeter around.

"I need to get these to come off, wait water, let's try using water." Guardromon said, everyone eventually agreed, even if it meant going back down into the safehouse

Ten minutes later

Koji was drenched, cold, and still sparkly, not to mention Takuya was still hiding in his ball of fire so he couldn't kick up a bunch of sparkles at him.

"Takuya, have I ever told you I hate you?" Koji asked

"Not yet," he answered "but I have a feeling its coming."

"I hate you."

"I knew that was coming."

"What about sending a small electrical charge through your bodies and that might make them come off." Guardromon suggested, and by now all of the warrior spirits had come out of the minds of their hosts just to watch, and though they stayed invisible if you looked hard enough you could tell they were there and they watched as the children desperate to be rid of the sparkles finally decided to try.

Another ten minutes later

Izzy was typing on his computer when Guardromon came up to him getting ready to try and get rid of the sparkles; he shocked him "Ouch! No my computer what did you do to it Guardromon?" Izzy exclaimed that's when the spirits decided to pop out of the state of being invisible.

"AGUNIMON, BURNINGGREYMON ARE YOU TRYING TO MAKE THEM WANT TO KILL ME?" Takuya yelled as soon as he saw them, and the two spirits just laughed.

"See," Agunimon said "I told you his reaction would be priceless

"Ah well now that we've had our fun," Burninggreymon said "I think you should know how to get rid of the sparkles." Everyone looked at him expectantly "There is no way; you will remain sparkly until they all come off in about two weeks."

By the time Burninggreymon was done speaking, Ranamon was laughing hysterically at the look that most of the children had…horrified.

"Alright we ought to go now; this uses a lot of energy bye for now." Kazemon said

"You can be so annoying." Zephyrmon said to her other half

"That's my job!" Kazemon said as she disappeared into a ball of light going to her human Zephyrmon following her.

"Young fire warrior, you are thinking." Burninggreymon said looking at Takuya as he sat on a shelf he had made in his bubble, everyone looked at Takuya.

Takuya took a few minutes to answer "Something just doesn't sit right about the digital bacteria, and a human; I mean why would a human try and make the entire digital world a memory blank then leave before they were sure they had finished the job." He then looked at the two spirits in front of him "Wait you know something don't you!" he accused them as everyone else looked lost about this matter since they weren't there for the conversation.

"Yes…but we can't tell you yet." Agunimon said

"But why not? If it could possibly help us win this battle-"

"No!" Burninggreymon yelled forcefully "None of you are ready to know the truth, none of you, and some of you may not ever be ready!" he glanced at a specific group

Takuya was beginning to looked frustrated "But-"

"You will find out when the time is right, either from us or some one else." Agunimon said, by now Takuya looked completely lost.

"Ha ha ha, you look like your trying to do math." Burninggreymon said, this only made Takuya's confused expression turn into one of complete agony, Burninggreymon's expression changed as well, it went from playful to serious in two seconds flat "Ah well you ought to get working or you may be to late to save the child of Hope."

"Yea, so we will take our leave." Agunimon said before the two spirits re-entered their host

"That was helpful you two, reeeeeally helpful." Takuya said his voice almost completely sarcastic.

"Let's just get to work." Tai said sounding a bit miserable due to the fact the sparkles wouldn't be coming off anytime soon, a lot of other digidestined, and digimon were this way as well and decided they might as well get to work and so they all made their way up one way or another to find a clean bright Grand Hall, ok so it wasn't clean, in fact it was a bit dusty, not to mention the rubble that used to be part of the ceiling.

"So the grand hiding place was under the grand hall, there's some irony for you." Matt chuckled figuring it would be easier, and quicker if everyone didn't keep thinking about what had happened just a hour or two ago.

Sora giggled "I thought it was just funny, never thought of ironic."

"You know what else is ironic?" Matt asked "When dad works at a TV station yet he can't figure out how to fix the TV at home." Everyone but Ai, Mako, Suzie, and all the digimon laughed, and after the small amount of cheering up everyone decided to get to work.

"Alright," said Tai looking around at the big group "so Jeri, Leomon and Kouichi, how about you watch the younger kids again, and be group one."

Jeri looked at Kouichi getting a nod of agreement "Ok." They got the younger three and the Nine walked off and stopped at the pile of rubble from the ceiling, and once Kouichi had inspected every nook and cranny of the pile he gave the children permission to play on it, and they immediately got to climbing. (7)

Then Tai began calling again and everyone gave him their full attention, they wanted this done quickly so they could find their missing team member "Alright next, Sora, Biyomon, Ryo Cyberdramon, Kazu, Guardromon, Rika, Ranamon, Takuya, J.P., Zoe, Tommy, Keenan, and Falcomon, I would like you to please go in a group and look for materials to re-build the city, you'll be group two, and Keenan you will be the leader of the group, come and a D-Terminal." Keenan walked over to him and got a D-Terminal, the fourteen then began to get moving out of the grand hall, Keenan leading and pretty much dragging them along with his almost Ninja like skills taking charge.

And once they were gone Tai assigned the next two groups "Ken, Wormmon, Davis, Veemon, Cody, Armodilomon, Takato, Gulimon, Henry, Teriormon, Marcus, and Agumon I want you to start building in a few minutes as group three, Davis you're leader, just don't leave until I assign the next group, now Mimi, Palmon, Kenta, Marineangemon, Yoshi, Lalamon, Mickey, Megumi, Black and White Pawnchessmon, Amiliana, and Gotsumon, you are group four, Amiliana you're leader, and I would like you to help group three until the time that the first building is complete, then you will design the inside." The combined group nodded and began walking out of the grand hall

"Me and Tai will stay here and watch the radar for any enemies." Izzy said as Tai typed out the message on his D-Terminal putting the message so everyone knew it, Izzy's D-Terminal went off so he opened it to make it stop, he sighed when he saw the message "Tai I think I'm going to type the messages."

"Alright," Tai said as he deleted the message with very poor spelling "now group six will be made up of Matt, Gabumon, Yolei, Hawkmon, Koji, Kristy, and Biyomon, you will be on standby just in case something happens, like if someone gets hurt then you will go get them so they can be taken care of, and be called group six, you will each have a D- Terminal, and you have no leader you are simply a group." Tai said giving Kristy a D-Terminal still needing one for Koji.

"Uh Tai," Izzy said "I'm cleaned out of D-Terminals." Izzy said, then Joe handed Tai a D-Terminal

"I always have an extra."

"Thanks, you're a life saver." Tai said as Izzy finished typing in the newest message "Alright and now for group seven, so Joe, Gomamon, Kari, Gatomon, Thomas, and Goamon, you will be medical, taking care of the digimon, and anyone who gets hurt, Joe and Thomas both of you lead, Kari you help Joe with anything serious, and then assist them in any other way needed." Kari nodded

And so then the three moved to a spot to set up a spot, Matt, Gabumon, Yolei, Hawkmon, Koji, Kristy, and Biyomon, all did the same sitting in a place where they could sit comfortably watching their D-Terminals, listening for beeping, Tai and Izzy then sat in the middle of the room, watching the screen staring, looking for any hint of danger, Izzy all the time moving the world map back and forth looking and every time he saw the dark region through it he saw dots slowly moving across it, and he knew that those dots represented the group that had taken T.K., it made him feel helpless as they moved away, farther, farther, until the dots disappeared into the capitol city around eight at night, gone and impossible to track, invisible, disappeared, as if wiped off the face of the digital world, as though there was no hope left, as if T.K. was gone forever, but then all the fun they had had together suddenly crossed his mind, and he decided not loose hope, not yet, not until there was solid proof that there was no hope left, but he didn't want proof of no hope, and he didn't want Matt to be destroyed, and so like T.K.'s crest he kept hope alive, and thought about how to rescue him, they would get them back, he wouldn't leave them forever, he was coming back.

Lilithmon was very pleased, her servant had finally managed to do something useful, she had captured one of the special children, the child of light, and also had 1/5th of the ancient knowledge, well as soon as her new toys came that is.

"My Lady," said Crusadermon with a low bow only seconds after she had thought about what she would do "I have brought him."

"Him? What do you mean him, I wanted the child of Light as well, allowing her to live jeopardizes all of my plans! I thought you could do one thing right, but apparently not! I thought that I could trust you with this mission, but I guess I'm going to have to do it myself, and maybe I can try and get rid of the warrior of light while I'm at it!" Lilithmon yelled

"I'm sorry, but perhaps you should try and extract some information from him." Crusadermon said cautiously

"Fine I guess your right; I may be able to get information on the children of light." Lilithmon admitted "Where is he?"

"In the deepest cell of the prison, do you want to go or should I go get him?" Crusadermon asked

"I'll go." Lilithmon said standing off her throne then walking down a staircase behind her seat "I have a plan."

The sparkly Digidestined were starting to come back into the newly fixed grand hall, the digimon of Flowerstrel were nice enough to make them all a large meal, made up of soup, veggies, fruits, and meat apples.

"Hey guys look meat apples." J.P. said

"Goodness it makes me think of one of the only times we actually got to enjoy a meal." Zoe said

"The meal was fine but what happened afterward wasn't fun at all." Tommy said sounding really guilty

"Tommy." Koji sighed

"It wasn't your fault." Takuya finished

"It wasn't something you could control." Said J.P., Kouichi and everyone else just stood back and watched, Kouichi hadn't ever heard the story and everyone else had no idea what they were talking about

"Huh? What are you guys talking about?" Davis asked (8)

Takuya looked at Tommy and got a nod. "We had just reunited, and entered the Forest Kingdom; we decided to set up camp for the night in the TV Forest. Zoe found some meat apples and half the group searched for more while the rest of us looked for firewood. Later, we built a fire and roasted the meat apples. I began to wonder why, when all five of us had our Spirits, we were unable to defeat Grumblemon. I asked Bokomon to check his book for anything called a "Beast Spirit" and, with some help from Neemon, he found a hidden page. With it we learned that there are two forms for each spirit, Human and Beast, but we were still unsure of how to find our beast spirits. Suddenly, a cloud passed over the moon, darkening the area. The tree trunks around us began to glow and we found that there were TVs in the trunks, allowing us to look into the human world. In one of the tree trunks, Tommy saw his mother. The moon appeared again and the images faded. Tommy began to cry, missing his mother. So to cheer Tommy up, I gave him a hot dog flavored meat apple and J.P. did some magic. Tommy briefly left the group to get another meat apple from the fire and Bakumon appeared and used Nightmare Syndrome on him." Takuya stopped

By now everyone had sat down at the newly made table, and with food on the ends of their forks they listened as Koji began again "The rest of us went to sleep while J.P. and Takuya stayed up and talked. Takuya said he missed his younger brother, Shinya, and Tommy reminds him of the kiddo. Takuya sensed that something was wrong and he and J.P. looked around to find the source. I had yet to fall asleep, wondering about the cryptic messages I had received from the voice from my D-Tector when I heard Tommy sobbing in his sleep, it also woke Zoe. Tommy had a nightmare about all of us keeping him from seeing his mother, and when he woke up, he fell into a trance and became angry at everyone." Koji then stopped and Zoe took over

"He spirit evolved into Kumamon and began to attack us. J.P. said that we should spirit evolve to fight Tommy, but we disagreed, so we remained in our human forms and continued to evade Tommy. Koji and Takuya both noticed something moving around the area and Koji spirit evolved into Lobomon. J.P. became irritated with Koji for spirit evolving, but I pointed out that Koji must have a good reason. Takuya then spotted Bakumon again and spirit evolved into Agunimon to attack him." She then stopped "Tommy do you want to finish?" Tommy shook his head, so J.P. took it up

"Bakumon attempted to use Nightmare Syndrome against Agunimon, but Takuya managed to shake off the nightmare. Knowing that Tommy must be going through the same thing, Agunimon tried to reason with him and then attacked Bakumon and purified him. Tommy returned to his human form without any memory of attacking us, and then Koji disappeared during the night." J.P. said sounding a bit irritated about Koji leaving

"Hey I found my beast spirit." Koji defended

"Only after you got knocked out!" Zoe yelled

"Hmm sound like someone we know?" Tai asked Matt

"No idea." Matt said whistling the most obvious tune

"So what's the story here?" Takato asked

"Mr. Matt decided that he didn't like us anymore…" Tai started

"Not true I was just confused!" Matt said shooting Tai's statement out of the sky

"Hence the three months you disappeared for?" Tai asked him

"Oh come on, Sora disappeared to." Matt attacked Tai's girlfriend

"Well at least she helped us once in a while, especially when you and Joe were being worked like slaves just to pay for a meal."

"Ohhh there's something to tell Jun, then maybe I can make her have sympathy on you and be more fan girl." Davis cut in, Matt stopped

"You wouldn't…would you?" Matt asked the look on his face priceless; Ken then pulled out his phone and took a picture of him, then started to video

"So long as you don't get married, you bet I will." Davis said an evil glint in his eye as he watched him

"Hey Davis look at this!" Ken said excitedly Davis leaned over and began to laugh after two minutes

"We should put that on YouTube!" he said laughing his head off

"I wonder if I still have internet here." Ken said checking "Yes! I posted it! Plus there are plenty of people that look at my videos, at least a thousand." Then he showed it to them, it was a video of Matt's horrified face as it got more horrified, not to mention his hair didn't have all the hair gel it usually had.

"Are you two trying to ruin my career?" Matt asked

"Maybe…" Ken began

"Yep!" Davis finished smiling

"But anyways," Tai began "You still disappeared for three months, and before you left you attacked me!"

"If you're talking about friends attacking friends, Thomas here has plenty of experience." Marcus said

"Hey I was blackmailed!" Thomas

"How so?"

"Ohhh that's right, you left after we defeated that well I honestly don't know what it was, but anyways Kurata had blackmailed me using my little sister Relina, she was born with a rare disease and Kurata wanted me to be his little pet so he would treat her, of course that meant turning her into a bio-hybrid, I was immediately against it, but he had a trump card, in her necklace was an explosive so I could no more refuse then I had cared for my father,-"

"What do you mean 'no more refuse then you cared for your father?'" Kari asked wondering what brought on such a comparison

"It used to be I didn't care, I do now that he actually fights battles instead of bending to the will of others, like when Relina was born, he wouldn't even fight when Grandmother said he was to start looking for someone for me to marry just to carry on the Norstein bloodline, I was five," Everyone looked at him "well anyways I had to be a good little traitor so they would start the operation and take off the necklace."

"Rika started out cold and rude." Henry butted in, Rika sighed here it comes

"She and Ranamon were always ignoring us." Takato said

"Wanted to blast me to oblivion on sight." Ryo said

"Why?" asked Yoshi

"Because she's the queen of the card game, I'm the only person ever to beat her."

"And she was also rebelling against her mom all the time." Henry said

"Oh come on some of the dresses she forced me into were absolutely horrible, all the pink and the bows." She said making everyone laugh

"I'm sorry to interrupt," Woodmon said "But you really should go to bed, it's 1:00 a.m., look at the younger ones they are out cold." They all looked to find the digimon three-fourths asleep, Suzie, Tommy, and Mako had fallen asleep faces in their food, the mashed potatoes muffling Tommy's crying, and Ai had managed to push her food out of the way before collapsing onto the table, it made them feel guilty.

"Off to bed we go." Marcus said

"And no parties tonight!" Woodmon yelled after them

"Yes Woodmon." The digidestined that were awake said sighing, and then they all grabbed their now sleeping digimon partners or younger sibling or younger sibling like team mate.

"Good, now off to bed." So they all went to bed going to and through the newly refurbished palace, they figured it would be another night or two so they worked on the castle and got about ten houses done, then they all collapsed into bed, after putting down whoever they were carrying that is, then in the morning everyone got beck to the spot they were at and by the end of the day they had made remarkable progress there was only half a house to do, but the digimon said they could finish on their own, and Woodmon had become Cherrymon again, and he took them to an ancient circle that would amplify his power, and though some of them had a hard time fitting they made it on ok.

"Now, I had a talk with the other sixteen protectors of the digital world, your next destination is Celestia, there is a surprise, and some answers, I will be giving you supplies that you need, once I have transported you, it should only be a one day journey there, less if you keep a good pace."

"Where exactly are you transporting us to?" Tai asked

"A bit away from the border between The Sector of Serenity, and the Rocky Region." And so after getting supplies such as food, rope, tents, matches, more medical supplies for Joe and a large kit for Thomas, he got ready to use what power he could to send them towards their next destination: Celestia

Bye Cherrymon!" I hope your city does well, and stays safe!" Suzie yelled from her brother's shoulders then they disappeared.

When Suzie came to, she found only the Koji boy, his twin Kouichi, and her herself had woken up, then she noticed her brother only three feet away from her.

She went over and shook him "Henwee wake up." Kouichi saw her and walked over

"Suzie, let them sleep, and in the mean time how about we play a game." Kouichi said knowing just how make her happy; Koji was now there as well.

"Is this really the place for games?" he asked coldly, poor Suzie didn't like how she could feel the coldness emanating off of him and began to cry.

Who is the human that made the Digital Bacteria? Will he reveal himself? Will they find T.K. in time or will he be lost to them forever? What could Lilithmon's plans be? What is the secret that the warrior spirits won't tell them? What is Kouichi's game? And will Koji be able to make a friend in Suzie? Find out next time on Digimon Digital Monsters!

Alright one thing I noticed was that I hadn't been really including the digimon; they've been invisible so I hope I got them back in there enough, same with Lilithmon.

Oh and if you can guess who the human is I'll give you a virtual cookie.

1. Not true, don't know how those things really work, just had to have an explanation.

2. Of course Takuya didn't realize he sounded like that.

3. No this does not make him Katara

4. Refer to first one

5. Okay so it isn't Koji, Takuya, and Kouichi able to just do magic, no as my sis and I discussed, the world would go BOOM if Takuya could use magic, instead the spirits use the magic through the kids.

6. Alright something me and my sister talked about, was that the sparkly powder made them seem like Winx girls, so because I was loopy (It was at least midnight) I said I should give them wings next (I won't really) but then we went on about other stuff.

7. The pile of rubble was a good eight feet tall.

8. I know I make him sound like he has no tact, but he doesn't.
