Chronicles of Time: Of What the Future Brings
"…sources say that the explosion on Shibuya Street was caused by terrorist bombing." The male announcer on the television screen said, "A lot of people have been injured due to the attack and several buildings including the Shibuya train station endured severe damages. It could be remembered that the said train station had just recently begun its reconstruction, but due to the events that had occurred, the reconstruction will begin from scratch once again."
"Talk about bad luck." Koichi said as he turned the television off.
"Takuya just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time." Koji, who was sitting near the window said.
"Have you guys called his family?" Zoe asked.
"We have." Tommy said, "They said they'll he here as soon as they can, it'll probably be in three days or so."
"Oh, that's right, they're on vacation!" Zoe remembered, "How about Shinya? He's only at their grandmother's house, right?"
Tommy nodded, "The only problem is that we don't know how to contact him."
"You've certainly been quiet, JP." Koichi noticed.
JP was just staring on a picture, the same picture that he's been staring at ever since they arrived at the hospital.
"Hey, JP?" Koichi said, "Yo! Are you still with us here on planet Earth?"
JP did not seem to notice that his friends are all staring at him, except Takuya who was still unconscious.
"JP!" Koji shouted.
This jolted the bearer of thunder, obviously surprised, "Huh? What?"
"You've been staring at that photograph since we came here, what's up?" Koji asked.
"I'm just confused, that's all." JP replied.
"About what?" Tommy asked.
"This." JP said as he showed the photo to Zoe and the others.
"Uh, is that a…girl? With...you?!" Zoe asked.
"Yeah, it's me." JP replied. "But I can't remember ever taking a photograph with this girl before. I don't remember ever meeting her before as well."
"Erika." Koichi said, this made everyone look over at his direction, "I think that's her name."
"How would you know?" JP asked, "Do you know her?"
"No. But…" Koichi replied, "It says so here on the back of the photograph."
With that, JP took the photograph and looked at what was written on the back...JP Shibayama and Erika Lyle from Europe.
"Erika Lyle?" Koji raised an eyebrow, "And she's from Europe? How in the world did you meet her. And forget that you meet her?"
"I told you I can't remember." JP said. "But she seems so…familiar."
"Too bad." Tommy said, "She's from Europe, there's no way you two can meet here in Japan."
"Looks like JP won't be bugging you for a while, Zoe." Koichi whispered over to Zoe.
"I really hope he remembers everything about that girl." Zoe said.
An hour had passed since then, and a nurse suddenly entered the room that Takuya and the others were occupying.
"Would you all be staying here for the night?" the nurse asked.
"No. Only one of us will be staying here." Koji replied.
The nurse nodded, and went out of the room.
"Only one of us?" Zoe asked.
"Sorry, count me out of that." JP said, "I have to prepare my things for the camp this weekend."
"Camp?" Tommy asked, "What camp?"
"The art club camp." JP replied, "You guys have to decide that on your own."
"Okay, well sorry but I have plans for the night as well." Koji said.
"Why do I have a feeling I know where this is going?" Zoe said.
"Great! Then we don't need to tell you our reasons." Koichi grinned.
Zoe sighed at this, "Unbelievable."
"Well, it's getting pretty late, mom maybe worried about me now." Tommy said as he stood up, "I've got to go now."
"I'm coming with you Tommy," JP said, "I'm pretty tired too."
"Okay, you two better be careful now." Zoe called out as Tommy and JP began to head to the door.
"Sure thing." Tommy nodded, and with that they left.
"I have to call home and tell them I'll be staying here." Zoe said as he stood up and went to the hospital lobby to call.
"Should we wait for her to return?" Koichi asked his twin.
Koji nodded, "Takuya might wake up soon."
So, the twins did wait for Zoe to return. Several minutes she returned and both Koji and Koichi were giving her the look as if asking what her parents said.
"They said it was okay, but I have to go home and pick up a few things." Zoe said.
"Like what?" Koichi asked.
"My clothes, food and some other things." Zoe replied as she sat down with a sigh.
"We'll get it." Koji volunteered, "Just call your mom again and ask her to prepare these stuff."
Zoe raised an eyebrow at them. "I just got back here and you want me to go back down the lobby and call…again?"
"Here you can use my phone." Koji said as he handed her his cellular phone.
"Why are you two doing this?" Zoe asked before she dialed her house's phone number.
"We'll we're going home now and if you leave, who'll watch over Takuya and tell him what happened when he wakes up?" Koichi replied.
"Oh, okay." Zoe replied, just then her mom picked up the phone and Zoe began to ask her if she could prepare her things for her as Koji and Koichi will pick those up.
Her mom agreed and so, the twins went to pick Zoe's stuff up.
Several minutes since the twins left, Takuya woke up.
"Takuya! You're finally awake!" Zoe exclaimed, happy to see him finally awake.
"Ughh…my head." Takuya muttered as he tried to sit up, but failed to do so. "What happened? Where are we?"
"You got caught up in the explosion at Shibuya." Zoe explained, as she sat down beside Takuya's bed, "We're at the hospital now."
"Explosion?" Takuya asked, as he winced when he tried to sit up once more.
"I wouldn't force myself to sit up, if I were you, Takuya." Zoe said, giving him a look of worry, "You're injured if you haven't noticed."
"I'd be lying if I would say I haven't noticed." Takuya replied as he gave up on trying to sit in his hospital bed, "So, where are the others? Why are you the only one who's here?"
"They went home already." Zoe said, "Koichi and Koji will be back with my things."
"Your things?" Takuya asked.
"They asked me to stay behind and sleep here until your parents come back to Japan." Zoe replied.
"And you're alright with it?" Takuya asked, "I'm really sorry, I'm causing enough trouble for everyone. You don't need to stay here, you know…not that I mind, though, it's just…you must be tired, you don't need to work yourself up staying here."
"Don't say that, Takuya." Zoe replied, "It's the least I can do, besides, this is nothing compared to the sacrifices you made for the team."
"Thanks a lot, Zoe." Takuya said, then he suddenly changed topics, "I had this weird dream while I was sleeping."
"A dream?" Zoe asked, curious, "About what?"
"About the digi-world." Takuya replied, "They needed our help again. And this time, the we have some help from other people too…"
"It is so like you Takuya to still be dreaming about the digital world." Zoe said.
Takuya grinned, "I just miss that place. I want to digi-volve to Agunimon again and kick butt."
"What's so funny?" Takuya asked.
"You are." Replied Zoe still giggling.
Takuya scratched his head using his left hand since he can't move his right arm, he could not understand what it was that made Zoe laugh, but he did not care, he really loved it when she smiles.
"I hope this isn't the date you promised me." Takuya suddenly said.
At this, Zoe stopped laughing and was surprised that Takuya brought that subject up, "What?"
"I said, I hope this isn't the date you promised me." Takuya repeated, "This isn't how I imagined it to be."
"You still remember that?" Zoe asked.
Takuya raised an eyebrow, "What? Did you think I could easily forget something like that?"
"Then why didn't you say something about it?" Zoe asked.
"In front of the others?" Takuya asked, "No way am I going to go and remind you of the date, especially in front of JP. Who knows what he might do."
Just then, Zoe remembered something, "Speaking about JP, he found a photo of him and a girl in it."
"A girl?" Takuya asked, "I know it's a surprise to see a photo of him with a girl but, what's so special about it?"
"He can't remember when he took it or who that girl is." Zoe said, "He just learned her name when Koichi saw it written on the back of the photo…"
"What's the girl's name?" Takuya asked.
"Erika." Zoe replied.
"Erika?!" Takuya asked surprised.
"You know her?" Zoe asked, even more surprised.
"What a coincidence," Takuya said, "That's the same name as one of the people that helped us out in the dream that I had. She was the new bearer of the spirit of water…"
"That's strange." Zoe said, "You're right, maybe it's just coincidence, besides, when did you start dreaming about another girl in the team?"
"What?" Takuya asked in a playful manner, "Don't tell me you're jealous."
"Jealous?" Zoe asked raising an eyebrow again, "In your dreams, Takuya Kanbara."
At this, Takuya laughed, Zoe soon chimed in.
Several minutes later, Koichi and Koji returned with Zoe's stuff which they placed on the corner of the room.
"Hey, you're finally awake." Koji said.
"Yeah." Takuya said, "I heard JP has some girl-trouble."
"You can say that again," Koichi said, "I can't believe he took someone's picture and doesn't even remember a thing about it."
"Oh, by the way Takuya," Koji added, "We found this on your pocket."
With that Koji handed Takuya a disk.
Takuya's eyes widened.
"That's…" Takuya gasped, "It can't be…"
"It can't be what?" Zoe asked, "It's yours isn't it?"
Takuya shook the thought off, "Uh…yeah."
"Well, we gotta go, it's getting dark outside." Koji said, "You two take care now."
"Yeah." Koichi nodded, "We'll be back tomorrow with Tommy and JP."
And with that, Koichi and Koji left.
Hours have passed since then, both Takuya and Zoe had already eaten their dinner and Zoe was already asleep in the bed that the nurse prepared for her thinking that Takuya was already asleep as well.
After making sure that Zoe was indeed asleep, Takuya took out the disk from under his pillows and stared at it.
"How could it be possible?" Takuya wondered, "It was all a dream, right? I mean, I don't remember ever buying a disk like this or even borrowing this…but in my dream, a girl gave it to me…what was her name…"
Takuya stared at the disk for quite a while trying to remember what the name of the girl was, but how hard he tries to remember, he just can't.
"I can't even remember what it was she said," Takuya continued on with his musing, "Maybe this disk has all the answers. Argh…this is getting weird."
Just then Takuya caught sight of something on Zoe's finger…
"A…ring?" Takuya noticed, "She never wears a ring…"
Then he remembered something from his dream as well. He remembered asking Zoe to be his girlfriend and then giving her a ring. And that ring looks exactly like the ones she was wearing. Takuya shook his head, "That can't be possible."
But he could not help but try and fit the puzzle together. JP finds a photo of him with a girl named Erika who happens to be the name of the girl that became the bearer of water in his dreams, Koji finds a compact disk in one of the pockets of his pants, a disk that looks somewhat like the one the another girl from his dreams gave him, and now a ring that looks very much like the one that he gave Zoe in his dreams.
"But what if…what if it wasn't a dream? That it really happened?" Takuya muttered, "If that's the case then maybe…"
Takuya looked over at Zoe's direction and smiled.
Before he went to sleep, he made a mental note to ask her that very question when he gets the chance tomorrow. And somehow, he had the feeling that she feels the same way about him too…
