Veemon and Gatomon: A Christmas Tale
Yet another VeeGato fanfic, inspired by The Forgotten Dragon, Sonimon and Dark Side of the World (all amazing authors, go check out their fanfics.) I'm lazy so if anything's out of continuity it's best to just ignore it.
Chapter 1 - Memories
The big hand on the clock in the kitchen was pointing to the 4. It was early morning. Veemon sat up. He had been lying down on the sofa in the living room for about an hour, trying to get to sleep. He woke up some time ago in a cold sweat, from a dream he couldn't remember. He went downstairs, trying not to wake Davis, although for Davis that feat would be legendary. He poured himself some water, took a few sips, and went to the living room to try and sleep on the sofa. It was a little colder, but Veemon enjoyed it sometimes when he needed to sleep alone and think in quiet, as Davis was a loud snorer. No matter how hard he tried though, he couldn't get to sleep. The dream he could not remember was knawing at the back of his small head. He knew it was a nice dream, a happy dream. If the dream was tangible it most certainly would take the form of a small star, soaking him in rays of warmth. Veemon pondered it over and over in his head.
This isn't like me... I never forget anything! If there's one thing a hard head is good for it's memory, so why can I not remember one dream; truthfully I could care less about one dream but my mind wont let me rest! Grrr... stupid head!
He started to drift from this particular dream and thought about tomorrow.
Boy oh boy... just fourteen days until Christmas! And with no more enemies in the Digital World to fight, nothing can possibly go wrong! I can't wait until tomorrow, me and Davis, going to the mall! There'll be shopping of course; can't forget gifts for my friends; and possibly even some lunch afterwards! And maybe even ice cream!
At the thought of tomorrow's events, Veemon slowly dozed off. There was nothing more important to him than his friends, and since Christmas was the time of family and friends, it was naturally his favorite holiday. ( I mean really, who doesn't love free stuff, am I right?) But what else would Veemon gain this Christmas? He didn't really want anything... yet there was something he longed for. Something he would find out is much closer, if not hard to get, than he seemed to think.
As the light from the window peered into the house and onto Veemon's blue and white face, he began to dream once more. This time it was of all his friends, and their past triumphs. He remembered when him and Wormmon first DNA Digivolved to Paildramon; together they easily defeated the Okuwamon Arukenimon unleashed upon them. Then when Patamon and Armadillonmon DNA Digivolved, admitedly Veemon disliked Shakkoumon ( As anyone without any taste in large giant tea pots would) but felt happy at the moment when his pals had finally did it. And lastly he could remember Silphymon, Aquilamon and Gatomon's DNA Digivolution. But something about Silphymon reminded him off that dream again.
Darn not this again! Listen Brain, I don't know what you want, alright! Stop torturing me!
All of a sudden his mind started to produce images of Gatomon. Veemon was confused, why was he seeing her? Sure, he thought she was a nice friend and not too bad on the eyes, but what else could she be to him? He tried to recall events that would explain this to him, but to no avail. He simply wrote it off as a reminder to pick her up a gift.
Of course! My Brain was just trying to make me remember Gatomon's gift! I almost forgot her! Boy what a relief... geez I guess it's time to get up.
And with that, knowing that his brain troubles were behind him, he got up cheerfully and made himself breakfast. It was still 7 o'clock so the rest of the Motomiyas were obviously fast asleep. Veemon didn't eat a lot in the mornings, usually only toast with jelly or maybe some bacon if Mr. Motomiya made breakfast. He would sometimes get up early on Saturdays and treat the family to a brunch of bacon, eggs, toast and hashbrowns. Veemon really longed for some delicious, tender bacon strips, but seeing as he could not work the stove, he settled for some cornflakes. He poured his milk, got a spoon and returned to the living room, where he turned on the television and watched cartoons. It was about a young boy who always got into mischief. He would play pranks on his teachers, on adults and sometimes other kids. Veemon laughed aloud when the boy's math teacher sat on his chair, not knowing that a bar of butter was there. It got all over his new khaki pants and all the other students found it a riot.
Veemon turned his head to find Davis standing just infront of the kitchen door, obviously still a little groggy.
Davis opened his eyes a bit more and started to blink.
"Hey, have you been down here all night; I don't seem to remember you being in bed when I got up to use the bathroom a few hours ago?"
"Ya, I couldn't really sleep so I came downstairs to lie down..."
"What was wrong, were you feeling sick or something?" Davis didn't really speak with that much concern, it was more of a "so what's going on with you?" tone.
"No... I just, really couldn't sleep... I kept thinking of something but It's gone now. Say, when are we gonna go to the mall?"
"As soon as mom get's up, she needs to pick up something for Grandma so she's dropping us off. "
Good, plenty of time to think of some things to pick up for my friends!
"Great, I'ma go take a shower! A mon's gotta smell and look nice for a walk out on the town ya'know!"
Davis smirked. Apparently a Digimon acting like a normal human was an amusing scene.
Veemon sighed pleasurably as the hot, steamy water hit his face and streamed down his body all the way to his tail and his feet. He grabbed the bottle of shampoo and scrubbed himself all over.
"How nice, this sure beats the Digi-World anyday!"
As he was showering, once again Veemon could only think of Gatomon. It was kind of irritating at first, but eventually it started to encompany the wonderful shower perfectly. He had always thought Gatomon was very special, but he never really thought about it that much. Being so ferociously loyal to his friends and their cause, he never had time to think of feelings like this. But now that the Digital World was indefinitely safe once more, he found himself revisiting; or what seemed to be for him the first time visiting; old thoughts. How incredibly soft Gatomon always looked, how white her coat was, the sing song tone of her voice and her perky ears. He had never really touched her before, for that matter he never really even sustained a normal conversation with her. He began to imagine what her coat must feel like, and he beamed as he did.
It must be like snow, but not cold wet snow like the stuff that falls out of the sky. Warm, tender snow; snow that could reach into your very soul and tickle it in a way no amount of bacon or ice cream ever could.
As he was dreaming about his friend, Jun was knocking on the door, quite loadly infact.
"Hello! Some of us want to get washed up before next Christmas! How much water and soap does a little guy like you need anyway!"
At being interuptted mid-dream, Veemon suddenly become very hot in the face. He was blushing for no reason but he knew it had something to do with Gatomon.
Gatomon... why do you wander around my mind... I don't understand, could I really like you? I mean, LIKE like you...?
This made Veemon even more uncomfortable, even if he was the only one there. He had never even experienced "love" before and decided he had to find out more about it before he settled this issue.
"VEEMON! Oh my God, hurry up!" Jun was as impatient as ever.
Veemon finally snapped back 100% to reality. He slipped and fell out of the shower and face first into the bathroom tiles. The curtain rod fell down after him and bonked him on the head.
"I'm... 'ok'.." He managed.
"I don't care what you are, just get out already!"
As Veemon made his way down stairs we saw that Davis was already ready.
"Ewww Davis, don't you need a shower!"
"No problem, I took one last night before bed, in case Jun was up and took forever to wash up in the morning!"
It didn't really matter, Veemon could only think about Gatomon and his feelings.
There's no debating it now. I need professional advice... on love!
