As the two Digimon ran through the dense forest it began to rain. The two continued running as if chased by an unseen force. One looked to the other, "what are we going to do? if we don't find it---" A crack of thunder cut him off.
The other snorted, "we'll find them Psychemon, we have to" As they continued to run one could almost swear the wind carried the cries of other digimon in agony, though this couldn’t be, seeing as they’d been in the human world for some time now.
Another crack of thunder shot from the sky and sent sparks onto a tree which burst into a fury of flames. The crackling made the larger creature stop, he looked around and gasped as the tree plummeted to the ground, cutting him off from his
His friend instantly stopped and turned but was stopped by the fierce look in the eyes of his friend. The creature shrank back as the flames licked towards his pelt. "Get out of here fool! I'm fine... I'll hold off the enemy, You to stick to the mission and find the one who’ll end the digital world and his own" as if waiting for a queue a roar tore through the sky.
The Smaller creature dipped his head, "as you wish Gururumon..." He ran off into the night as a large beast approached the digimon whose data was already floating into the air. The digimon stood sighed and stood, "Psychemon you fool... if you knew what's about to happen.. You'd never leave..."
A large digimon came into view. The flames had spread from the fallen tree, and now digimon to several other trees and now spreading to the grass. "Gururumon... how noble of you to try to protect Psychemon... but you know it's only a matter of time before you're gone and I catch up to him"
Gururumon smiled softly, "why say such words before you have gotten the facts straight... i will die here, yes, but not without taking you down with me." He looked calmly at the foe who chuckled, "Howling Blaster" Blue flames spewed from his jaws and hit the larger digimon in the face who let out a small cry. Gururumon thrust himself at the other, "Ice fa---" he shouted but felt a sudden shot of pain. "Red Skull Ram" he heard it but it was too late to dodge. He was smashed into a burning tree.
"Gururumon!!" The digimon looked up, he was barely able to be seen now, the data that held his very being was near vanishing. He coughed but couldn't speak. He started shaking as he saw Psychemon. "Psychemon evolve! Astamon!" The enemy looked over, "well... this is unexpected..." He took a step towards Psychemon's new form. "Hell-Fire!!!!" he fired his gun at the large digimon who jumped back.
"Impossible..." he gasped, His shoulder was beginning to emit data. He snorted. "Maverick" Astamon kicked the digimon aside. He aimed his gun but felt a force tackle him with emence power. Gururumon's faded form snarled, "Damn you! If you don't get away I'll finish you also, the mission comes first!"
Pyschemon stood slowly, the digimon had been forced into degeneration, not knowing what had just happened. He looked down, "I'm sorry Gururumon..." He then ran off into the night, without a single look back.
Without another word the form of the digimon, the brave soul knew it was over for him, the only thing that kept the last bits of data stable was the will to let his friend get to safety and do what they’d been sent to do. He flung himself at the enemy and the end of the fight began.
Soon the larger digimon struck Gururumon hard, the digimon coughed softly then fell to the earth. He was gone before he landed. The digimon rushed after the rookie.
When the storm passed there was a small house in shambles, blood splattered on the remains of some walls. A young boy standing with a fireman, the boy’s family had been slaughtered and the only reason he was alive was because he wasn’t home.
Quiet, it was too quiet in the Johnson house. Thats what worried Ms. Johnson. The woman had found Kaito Akechi's room empty. He had snuck out again, and it was almost midnight. The woman dialed a number on her phone, she was tired of the boy's ignorance and always breaking her rules.
The phone call only lasted, maybe three minutes before she spoke four words, "Get him out tomorrow" Kai returned maybe ten minutes later, the boy was only fourteen but was hanging out with the wrong people and getting into trouble often.
He saw the look on Ms. Johnson's face and knew, once again he had messed up. He looked to his feet, he wasn't one for long chats. "You called him... didn't you" He murmured.
The woman sighed softly, "I'm sorry Kai... i just can't handle you well" Kai didn't want to hear it, the same thing happened each time. He turned and walked towards his room, "This is so stupid!" he cursed under his breath. Ever since his family had been killed by some demon monster, though this story made him seem crazy, so he didn't bring it up anymore.
He sighed, "Can't i have one more chance?" He said, though it surprised him as well as Ms. Johnson. She looked to the boy, "Kaito... i don't know, the late night parties... making messes and not picking up..." She shook her head. "Let me sleep on it, alright?"
Kai nodded slightly then closed his bedroom door.
4 years later
The next morning Kaito was woken up by his foster parent opening the blinds. "Get up Kai, I've got a surprise for you. I'll meet you in the car" Kai groaned softly, but got up, got dressed and cleaned up some. He then walked out to the car, "Don't i need my stuff?" He muttered.
She looked to him, "No... i talked with your social worker and we decided to give you one more chance, he also mentioned a pet could teach you responsibility" Kai was somewhat shocked, but glad he wasn't being taken away.
He climbed into the car, "Can i pick the pet out?" Ms. Johnson nodded, "yes" She then drove, the two waited in silence until they arrived at a shelter. The two were taken to the animals. Kai looked at several dogs but one stuck out, it looked like a mangled golden German Shepard mix.
He asked to meet the dog and the two were taken to a room. Kai and the dog got along well and Kai chose it. He picked out a red and black checkered collar and red leash and was asked what he'd name it.
Kai didn't know what to name it, he honestly didn't even want a dog in the first place. But if it let him stay, why not? He sighed, looking to the mangled looking creature. "Mutt..." The worker looked at him, "Mutt?" The boy nodded.
The dog watched him, it seemed to shake his head, which surprised Kai but he chose to believe imagined it. Ms. Johnson took him and the dog to the car and went home. He left them their so she could go shopping.
He walked into the house and the dog followed him, it then followed him into Kai's room. Kai looked to the dog. "Stop following me Mutt" The dog growled, "i had to get picked by a brat... that's just great.."
Kai lost his balance and then stared at the dog, "Woah... did you just talk?" The creature sat down and scratched his ear. "Sure... all Digimon talk..." Kai blinked, Digimon? does he mean he's one of those digital monsters? the boy thought.
The digimon looked to him, "I'm howlmon... a viris Beast digimon" He sighed, "Would your name be Kaito Akechi?" The boy nodded slightly, somewhat scared. He stood up, "Well... i guess the world works in interesting ways... I've been looking for you"
He walked to the collar and leash and put his paw on it. Kaito watched as it changed into a digivice.He walked over, "wait... hold up. Why me? theres tons of other kids out there"
Howlmon looked to him, "the digital world needs you Kai... You and some other kid who has a digimon... we can't have anyone else, you are needed to save your world"
