Luck of the Draw
put the last drop of bright green liquid into the flash, shaking it gently.
It bubbled for a moment, and then settled down to a dark purple color that
swirled and frothed like a mixture of grape juice and shaken-up Sprite.
Daisuke grinned like a maniac, his goggles glinting evilly – at last!
"Do you really
think it'll work, Daisuke?" Iori asked dubiously. Daisuke jumped, then
glared at Iori for ruining the mad-scientist mood. Of course Daisuke couldn't
do this on his own – even though he was smart enough, in his way, he'd
probably be in too much of a hurry and add chlorine instead of chloride,
and then where would he be? Iori was the only one Daisuke could rely on
to keep a secret – rely on, ha! Daisuke laughed to himself. He couldn't
trust any of the others with this plan of his. Definitely not Miyako –
she'd just get mad at him no matter what he did. Takeru – no way! Hikari,
well she was the reason he was doing this. The older Digi-destined Daisuke
just didn't know well enough. Even Tai, who he did know, was out of the
picture because, well, Hikari was his sister. Iori wasn't even that good
of a choice – even for such a little kid, he always got the better of Daisuke,
and they were constantly fighting. "Like an old married couple,"
Ken had once said.
Ken. Some may
ask why Daisuke didn't go to Ken for help with this – he was a genius,
after all, and Daisuke's best friend. The truth was that Daisuke himself
didn't know why he didn't ask Ken for help. It just…

Iori called, waving his hand in front of the taller boy's face. "Daisuke?"

his heart protectively.
his eyes. "The recipe came from a Froot Loops box, Daisuke," he said dryly.
"I don't care!"
let's go. I don't know why I'm doing this…" Iori sighed.
Daisuke said hotly, heading out of the chemistry lab doors, Iori following
"Yes, I know
I promised. That's what comes with being the Digi-destined of Reliability.
You have to keep your promises. And when you're dealing with Daisuke Motimiya
and his crackpot plans, that's not a very good thing." Iori replied, rolling
his eyes. The two crossed through the hallway, heading for the open school
"Did you just
call me a crackpot?" Daisuke demanded, glaring at the solemn younger boy.
"Now is not
the time, Daisuke. Here come the others. If you're going to slip Hikari
the "love potion" I suggest now would be a good time." Iori replied as
they stepped outside. "I just hope it doesn't kill her."
"It won't! It
won't!" Daisuke insisted, vehemently. He slipped the small flask into his
pocket and sauntered up to the other four Digi-destined, Hikari, Ken, Miyako
and Takeru, who were waiting at the gates of the school for Daisuke and
the smallest Digi-destined to arrive.
Miyako burst out. "What were you doing this afternoon? Finishing up on
"He needed help
mixing things up," Iori said, and that was not the full truth, but it wasn't
a lie either.
"You could have
asked me, Daisuke," Ken suggested, grinning, his smile sending shivers
up Daisuke's spine, though he did not know why. He assumed it was because
Ken was reading his thoughts. He really ought to have asked the blue haired

"You're captain of the soccer team, you're the school president, you're
super smart, and involved in about two billion other things. I didn't want
to bother you."
"I always have
time for you, Daisuke," Ken said.
"So what did
you mix up, Daisuke?" Hikari asked, running a hand through her hair.
some things," Daisuke said, turning even redder as both Ken and Kari fixed
their eyes upon him. "This and that. You wouldn't be interested in it at
all, would they, Iori?"

he hasn't eaten since lunchtime," Ken said. "Low blood sugar would do it.
We ought to stop by the cafeteria before we go home and fill you up, Daisuke."
"I'm fine! I
am!" Daisuke cried out, almost causing the love potion in his pocket to
overturn. To prevent anyone from seeing it, he quickly flung his backpack
in the way, blocking the view of the potion.

We're taking you to the cafeteria immediately."
"They have the
juice I like, don't they?" Hikari wondered.

If he could
only substitute the potion for Hikari's drink…

more of it yesterday!"

"I don't know,"
Hikari said, starting to have second thoughts. "I really do have to check
with a teacher before I go home..."
No, no, no!
She had to come…
"I'll only go
if Hikari comes along," Daisuke exclaimed, waving his arms about and jumping
around some more. "Otherwise I'm going to be really hyper and act like
this all day and that wouldn't be good, would it, especially if we go to
the Digital World!" To prove his point, he "accidentally" tripped on Ken's
foot, sending them both sprawling forward.
"Coming," she moaned, helping Daisuke and Ken to their feet.
exclaimed. "Well let's go!" He grabbed Hikari and Ken by the hands and
started running. The other Digi-destined weren't far behind. Daisuke slid
into the Cafeteria, nearly slipping on some spilt milk, and catapulted
towards the juice and cereal table.
down, Daisuke!" Hikari exclaimed. "You're going to end up killing somebody!"
Daisuke said quickly. "Juice?" he held out a glass to her, mock-bowing.
She gave him a weird look, but took it. "Oh here, Hikari, let me pour some
for you!" he said, jerking it back and turning his back on her.
she said. Daisuke reached forward, pouring the berry juice that he knew
Hikari liked into the cup. Quicker than lightning (or so he thought)
Daisuke whipped the purple potion out of his pocket and sloshed a bit in.
He didn't use up all of the potion – just to be safe, he and Iori had mixed
up three batches, so there was still quite a bit left. He turned around,
presenting the cup to Hikari, who was at the moment talking to Miyako.
"Here you go,
Hikari!" he exclaimed. She took it with a smile.
going to have something, Daisuke? We came in here to get you food in the
first place," Ken remarked.
Daisuke exclaimed, grabbing the first thing he saw. It was a box of Lucky
Charms. He jammed his hand into the box, popping a handful of marshmallows
into his mouth, watching Hikari very closely – she hadn't drunk any yet.
Since he was so fixated, he didn't seem to notice that the bottle in his
pocket slipped out of his pocket and fell into the full pitcher of berry

replied. "What time are we supposed to meet Tai and the others?"
"Oh my gosh,
3:30!" Hikari exclaimed, just as the glass touched her lips. She nearly
dropped it in shock, placing it hastily on the table. "We'd better get
going! I had no idea that it was so late! It's your fault, Daisuke!" she
exclaimed, though not vindictively. It was, after all, his fault.
"Come on, we have to get going!" She, Miyako, Iori and Takeru ran for the
door. Daisuke stared after Hikari, stunned. No! She had to drink it!
asked. "What's wrong? We'd better go with them." Daisuke turned to Ken
just as the blue-haired boy picked up Hikari's untouched glass and took
a long sip.

But it was too
late. Ken had swallowed and was now wiping his mouth with a napkin. "You
really are excited today, Daisuke," the boy genius observed. "It's only
juice. Come on. You should try some of it. It's really good…"

"Come on, Daisuke.
It's great. You'd really like it!" Ken insisted.

away. He was starting to sweat, expecting at any moment for the love potion
to take effect, but so far it hadn't. The cereal box had said it would

Daisuke said, his heart fluttering. Not that he wanted to see the potion
work on Ken, but it would be nice to know that it wasn't a dud…"I'm full!

"Oh! I lost
my appetite!" Daisuke cried, and he scampered off to the other side of
the Cafeteria. He needed to find Iori fast to double check that love potion
recipe. Maybe he had added chlorine after all and Ken was about to horribly

off, Jyou, who had come from the high school to tutor at the 02 Digi-destined's

"What's that you have there?"
"A new drink,"
Ken said, finishing up the glass, and then laughed, "it's the best. You
should try some."
"I don't know,"
Jyou said. "I'm allergic to most foods…"
