Spawn of the Vampire
It wasn't the most perfect day to visit, but she had decided to do so anyway, call it an instinct feeling that she just had to come. Sure, her parents wouldn't like it, nor would her teachers, but they also didn't really know what it was like.
After the last battle with Babel, it had become so hectic for them, so demanding that she had barely had time to visit this place, heck, she barely had time to focus on her own education. After all, things had been both world changing yet remained the same in a number of ways.
But that was for later, for now, she was here. "I'm back Tai." Speaking the sentence softly, Kari Yagami stared at the stone monument that had been raised by not only the digi destined, but Catherine and Ogremon as well, most surprising had been a large number of digimons who none of them had met had even shown up.
Even some of those who had been enslaved by him, they had been rather silent, but a few had been willing to talk to her and explained that it was both a way for them to see if the rumors had been true, and to make sure the evil was gone, at least for a while.
"Some digimons, are just morbid I guess." her comment a bit depressing as she thought about it, digimons didn't really die, they just got reformatted if they had been good, a second chance at life so to speak. "Too bad we can't be just as sure about humans, eh Tai."
Lowering her hands, she smiled as she slowly placed all the flowers but one on the grave, taking care not to block the head stone from sight or to disturb the other flowers already there. "It's been a long time now Taichi, five months to be precise and a lot has changed since I was last here."
Settling down, Kari kept her eyes on the grave as she thought about the long time between her visits. "I'm sorry about not making it here sooner, but since the digital world has become world known, I've been distracted by how much digimons have changed things."
"Sure, it's not all fun and games; there are those who find them to be nothing but invaders and a strain on our world." The fact making her even more depressed as she had seen some of the leaders of the world refer to digimons as aliens scum, demons and monsters.
The most disturbing one having been some famous radio host in America. "He's calling for a crusade to save the souls of us digi destined." Her eyes narrowing a bit, she slowly grinned as she focused on the headstone. "Let's just forget about him right Tai, besides, I got so much to tell you."
"We can start with Mimi, after all, you and her, I, I know how she feel about you and how you...felt...about her..." Her voice lowering, she watched the pink and yellow flowers placed just before the headstone. "She had to go back to America for a while, but after the whole riot thing against digimon went down, her parents returned to Japan, said it was safer here, personally, I think it was because she let Togomon chase away the ones who trashed her dad's car, she still had a thing for you, but, she can tell you about when she comes by later."
Smiling as she closed her eyes, she felt herself at peace as she thought about her friends. "Matt and Sora became fiancés last month, it came out of the blue, just as Matt giving up on his band did, he's joined the defense forces instead, partly to join the air force, partly to explain digimons to the world"
"Davis is still a mess, after Jun's relapsed into evil and her death-" Holding back a small choke, she gave a small sniffing sound before continuing. "He barely spoke to any of us at first, if Ken hadn't been there for him so much, I think he would have tried to, kill himself."
"He's doing better now, and we're always there for him, Yolie the most of us, though I think it is also because Ken is there, well, a small part of it."
"Izzy's become the voice of the digital world, he good, but he's under a lot of stress, and the whole Micheal business hasn't made it any better, he's recovering, but he'll never be himself again."
"Sora has gotten into designing, but has also started to take a more active role in her mothers flower shop, Cody, Joe and Takeru have been helping to rebuild the damage to the digital world, in fact, several other nations have decided to help after learning of Babel and his attempted destruction."
"Speaking of Babel, did you know he was Ken's brother? We didn't really learn until he gave Catherine the third degree interrogation about it, but when we asked him about it later, all he told us, was that his brother wasn't Babel, that Babel was just a monster posing as Osamu, when Yolie demanded a better answer, he simply told us that Osamu had found peace, and that was all."
"About Ken, when he's not spending time with Davis, he's either helping Izzy or at school, they have this plan for a more effective way of the defending the worlds from both evil digimons and humans alike, they call it the global union for digi destined, a way of finding, training and supervising all new digi destined, as well as a way to keep track of rouge digimons."
"Gennai, it's hard to believe he really gone as well, I mean he helped us when we were younger, he always tried his best to make sure both worlds would be safe, it's rather strange to think he won't pop up with any cryptic legends, prophecies or other spooky stuff when we least expect it."
"I'm not so sure about his chosen successor though, the whole battle with Babel and the near destruction of the worlds has made her more; I think you would call it withdrawn. She's moved out of Gennai's house and into the old guardian base, several of Gennai's copies helping her with something that should protect the digital world more effectively."
"She calls it the knight project, I don't like it, she showed up one and asked for some samples from both Davis, Ken, Veemon and Wormmon, I even saw her trying to get some of your data, but she left it alone after I told her to leave."
"Our parents like her though, even if she only wanted to hear about you."
"Mom and Dad, they haven't changed, they grown older Taichi, whatever your return did to them, it did something. Mom has barely talked, and Dad's acting like a robot, he only goes to work, barely coming home to just eat and sleep, it's like losing you a second time hurt them even more."
"I've seen how Mom stares at Gatomon, and the other digimons, she doesn't hate them, but she doesn't like them either, as if she's blaming them for your death, but I think she also knows that it with the help of digimons that you saved the world from destruction."
"Maybe she and dad will calm down again, and understand that at the time, there was no other choice."
Standing up, Kari stared down at the grave as she wiped a single tear from her eyes, doing her best to appear strong in front of her brothers resting place. "I miss you Taichi, having you come back was the best thing to happen to me, which is why, I still hope that somehow, you'll come back again, but I also think that this time, there won't be some miracle return from the dead."
"We all miss you, but this time I got to say goodbye at least." Laying one hand on the tomb stone, she smiled softly as she stood up, several tears running down her cheeks as she began to turn a round. "I'll be back again, as will Mimi and the others"
"We'll protect the worlds for you, the worlds you died saving."
Stopping, Kari cast a stare over at another tombstone, surrounded by less flowers then her brothers, but still with enough to make her smile. "I truly believe as Davis does, that deep down you weren't evil Jun, you just didn't want to accept that you belonged in the light."
Placing the last flower on the grave, Kari smiled as she left, staring into the horizon, almost feeling as if her brother were still there to help her find the courage to keep the promises she had made to him.
Standing still, Mimi watched as Kari left, the young girl having a faint smile on her face as she walked in the direction of the nearest TV back to the real world.
As soon as she was sure she was alone, Mimi stepped forward, not wanting anyone to see her when she visited, him. "I'm doing my best, to keep my promise."
Her small comment spoken as she stared down at the tomb, the flowers she had brought with her placed next to Kari's. "I'm sure that she told everything about our current problems." her eyes closing as she though about it. "Still, there are some good things happening, new digi destined are showing up everyday, they're a lot of trouble, but still welcome."
"I miss you Taichi, even despite of everything you did to me, and so many others." Slowing down, she placed one hand over her heart as she opened her eyes. "I know now Taichi, I love you."
Smiling as she faced the grave, she giggled a bit. "Maybe things would have been different if I told you sooner, or if I had even understood it."
A soft wind blowing through the area as Mimi laughed softly, standing up. "Watch over us, and me Taichi, until we meet again okay?" Her smile lighting up the area as she held up a pink rose to her nose. "So requests your queen."
As the pink haired girl left, a faint snort of disbelief made itself known as twin messy haired human forms slowly faded into view in the center of the memorial. "So commands you queen, what the hell do you see in her?" The spirit form of Jun spat out as she glared after Mimi.
"More then you can ever understand, Jun." Tai's spirit bit back as he glared at her from the corner of his eyes. "And what was that stunt for back there? We were supposed to work together."
Jun smirking right back at him as he le tot a small chuckle. "So what if the power got to me, you won didn't you?"
"Yeah, and I died doing it!" Tai snapped back as he punched Jun on the shoulder, eyes actually flashing with anger as he did so. "If you hadn't been so boneheaded, we could have."
A punch right back into his face shut him up as Jun glared at him. "What do you know, if you hadn't been so stupid, I would have become the ruler of all."
A soft sigh filled the air as a black colored feline digimon spirit showed up. "Are they still at it?" BlackGatomon's comment aimed to her right where an orange colored digimon were sitting.
Agumon glancing back for a few seconded before focusing on the argument between Jun and Tai once more, simply shrugged. "Looks like it, but hey, at least they're on friendly terms again." confusing filling his face as he watched Tai and Jun break out into a fist fight, before rolling around on the ground while yelling at each other. "At least I think they are."
"Idiots." The last comment muttered out by Blackwargreymon's spirit as he stared down at the arguing human spirits and the two digimons spirits. "They're both idiots."
Mimi stopping her walk as she could have sworn she had just heard Tai and Jun yelling from behind her, but couldn't see anyone when she turned around to check. "Huh? must be the heat getting to me."
AN: Well, it's an epilogue, somewhat, I hope it lives up what is to be expected by a epilouge. Anyway, this time the story really is over, finite, ended, done with, completed, totally finished.
And so I say to all.
Don't drink and drive.
