A Digimon Frontier Fanfic

By Haru Glory

Author;s Notes: Okay, another idea clicked on my head. I'm watching Frontier re-runs right now. That's when I got the idea for this fanfic. This fic happened right after the gang defeated Lucemon and peace was restored once again to the Digi-world...Just read and find out what this fic is really about.

Chronicles of Time: Of What the Future Brings

Chapter 1: Koichi's question

It has already been a week since Takuya and the others returned after defeating Lucemon and classes was not about to begin for a month – this made the Sprit Shinkers happy – well most of them.

"Finally, we'll get a real vacation!" Takuya had said when the group met one sunny afternoon.

"Yeah." Agreed Zoe, "After what we did to save both worlds, we deserve a nice, peaceful vacation!"

"But I still think one month isn't enough." JP complained.

"What are you talking about, JP?" Koji asked, "One month is pretty long if you ask me."

"Not as long as our stay at the digi-world." Tommy cut in, "Even if it the time here didn't changed when we left."

"At least it's much safer here, no evil digimon to come and attack as any moment." Koji's twin, Koichi said.

Koichi had just gotten out of the hospital two days ago. He wasn't in any more life-threatening danger after what the kids did to save his life, but still, the doctors insisted that he stay and rest at the hospital. Naturally for his friends and his brother, Takuya, Zoe, Koji, Tommy and JP visited him.

"Yeah. We can live like ordinary children again." Zoe agreed.

"I don't think we can." Koji said.

"What do you mean by that?" JP asked, his voice raised and demanding an answer, the others however (except for Takuya) was confused at what Koji had said.

"I think Koji's right, guys." Takuya said.

"Not you too, big brother Takuya." Tommy said.

"Hey, We really can't return back to how we lived before, not with what we have experienced in the Digi-world." Takuya immediately explained before Zoe could ask him to.

"Right." Koji added, "Who knows, even though the real legendary fighters didn't say it, I think there might come a time when we will be needed again."

"But the portal to the Digi-world is closed already and I don't think the trailmons could come back here to pick any more future Digidestineds up after Lucemon trashed that place up." Zoe said, "Not only that, but our digi-vices also vanished right after we saved Koichi."

"But still—"Koji insisted on the topic.

"Okay, that's enough about the digital world for now, brother." Koichi cut in before Koji could continue, "Aren't you guys hungry? I know I am."

"Now that you mention it..." Takuya said, "I haven't eaten anything for lunch!"

"Me neither." Zoe said.

"So where are we going to eat?" JP asked obviously the thought about food made his mouth water.

"How about McDonalds?" Tommy asked, "I really would like a happy meal."

"I think McDonalds would be okay." Koji said.

"I haven't eaten there in a long time." Koichi added.

"You're not alone in that." Takuya said, "So, any objections about eating at McDonalds?"

No one objected, and so the gang began to walk towards McDonalds. Everyone was hungry, that several minutes later when they arrived at the food store, they couldn't help but buy a lot of food which made the lady taking their orders' jaw to drop in surprise.

BURPPPPP JP burped several minutes later after finishing ten burgers and two large fries as well as drinking up two large coke, "Excuse me."

"Boy, am I full!" Takuya said as he stretched up.

"That was delicious!" Added Tommy as he began to assemble the toy that he got from his happy meal.

"Nothing like eating out with your friends!" Zoe muttered loud enough for everyone in their table to hear.

"Yeah, now this is food – unlike what those Kokuwamon were eating back at the factory where JP got his digi-spirit." Koji said.

At this, Tommy added, "Or the noodles we tasted when we first arrived at the terminal of the woods."

"Or the burgers that Takuya and Koji made." JP chimed in.

At this, Koichi was surprised, "Koji made burgers at the digi-world?"

"If you call that burgers..." Takuya smirked.

"It's not as if yours are better." Koji retorted.

At how the two boys were acting, this made everyone laugh.

"But I kinda miss what those Toucanmons prepared for us – That was the only food at the digi-world apart from Tommy's burgers that was delicious!" Zoe said.

"Those stupid Toucanmons were the reason why we went through all the trouble of following them just to get our digi-vices back." Takuya said.

"Well, if it wasn't for them stealing the digi-vices then Tommy and I wouldn't have found our digi-beast spirits." Zoe reminded the goggle head.

That was when Koichi remembered something, "Hey, Zoe could I ask you something?"

"Sure, what is it?" Zoe said.

Koichi then whispered his question to Zoe's ear: "Have you and Takuya gone out yet?"

Zoe blushed, she was lucky that no one was looking and everyone was still busy talking about their adventures.

"What are you talking about, Koichi?" Zoe asked blushing madly.

"You don't have to blush like that, Zoe." Koichi whispered, "I meant the promise you made with him during the battle against Kerpymon – don't tell me you guys have forgotten about that."

"Err—No, I haven't fulfilled that promise with him yet." Zoe whispered back still blushing and wishing that the others wouldn't notice about it.

"Why?" Koichi asked, "You really like Takuya, don't you?"

Zoe was, by now, as red as a freshly picked tomato.

"Who told you that?" Zoe asked not answering Koichi's query.

"No one has to tell me about it, it's really obvious." Koichi answered smiling sheepishly. Then he repeated his question to Zoe.

"It's not whether I like Takuya or not," Zoe whispered as low as she could to make sure that no one would hear what she was about to say, except for Koichi, "But – I just think that it is improper for the girl to ask the guy out, you know what I mean..."

"I see." Koichi said, "Then IF Takuya would ask you out, you WOULD go out with him, won't you?"

"S-sure...it was a promise after all." Zoe replied.

Zoe was lucky that she managed to stop blushing madly, because right after answering Koichi's question, Takuya asked them what they were whispering about...

"What are you guys talking amongst yourselves over there?" Takuya asked.

"Err—" Zoe started to panic, searching frantically for an excuse that was not going to give anything that she and Koichi were talking about away, She doesn't like Takuya to know what she said to her friend – yet.

"I just asked her a question that was bugging me." Koichi was the one who replied.

"A question? What?" Koji asked.

"Uh...about how Lucemon managed to get here in the real world in the first place." Was what Koichi could think off – although he already knew how.

"I thought I already told you what happened back when you were still in the hospital." Koji said.

"You already did?" Koichi asked, trying to sound surprised, "Then I guess I just didn't remember."

It was because of this, that Koichi had to endure his brother retelling what happened after he vanished from the Digi-world as they began to head back home. But he wasn't really listening, at the back of his mind, he was still thinking about what Zoe had answered, and for him, Zoe was still hiding something.

It was only when Koichi was back at his room that he finally decided to bring Takuya and Zoe closer together than ever, and to do that he needs all the help that he could get.

"One month left," Koichi thought before drifting off to a peaceful slumber, "I hope it's enough to have my plan work and I hope Tommy and Koji would be willing enough to help me out."

To be continued...

A/N: So, how was that for the first chapter? I am really, really fond of Takuya and Zoe right now, I think they're as cute a couple as T.K was with Kari. Anyway, I really want to know what you guys think, so please review my work. I have also finally decided (for the Hope of Darkness readers out there) that I would upload the sequel on the first day of the third week of October 2004. Sorry for the inconvenience you guys, I am really trying to hurry up. Anyhow, this fanfic is not what it seems – believe me. Well, I think that's enough for now. See you guys in a while!
