Okay. So here I am on Christmas Eve putting up the final chapter. I hope you like it and I'd really like reviews. After I have completed this story, I'll be mainly concentrating on Head Games, my other Taiora fic. I'm working on the next chapter as we speak. I've just had a little case of writer's block, but I'm sure my assistant writer can help me out.
Her name is Courage Sun and she's a totally awesome writer with her own style. You might of read her story "Heir of Light" which, as I might add, is one of the best fics I've ever read. Along with Davis, we are the Terrorizing Trio and we shall dominate! Hah.
Anyway, here's the last chapter! Brace yourself. It's a long one! Enjoy.
Forgive & Forget
The Digidestined stared up at the new digimon with wide eyes. It was silent except for gasps, until Sora spoke up. "We can do that too?" She questioned.
"I guess so." Tai replied as he stared up at the digimon.
"That's Plareidramon. The DNA form of MetalGreymon and Garudamon. Plareidramon's special attack is Ring of Fire." Izzy informed them as he read the digi analyzer on his laptop.
"This is so cool!" Mimi shouted.
"Tai, this is awesome and all, but she's got all the crests! We'll never win." Sora said doubtfully.
"Right you are!" DarkAngewoman yelled. "I'm at full strength now!"
"Don't worry Sora. We can beat her. Don't worry." Tai reassured Sora.
"Yeah…Light always overcomes darkness!" Kari cried out.
Plareidramon charged at DarkAngewoman and they battled it out. DarkAngewoman sent a spiral of dark energy and Plareidramon was down.
"Oh no! We're done for!" Cody cried in anguish.
Doubt hovered over the group until a voice spoke up. "No we're not! Tai and Sora can do this. They won't give up and either will I!" It was Matt. "We've got to believe in our friends!" The crest of Friendship shined brightly in the hands of DarkAngewoman.
"Matt's right! We've got to rely on one another!" Joe's crest of Reliability shined.
"We have brains on our side!" Izzy's crest of Knowledge shined as well.
"Tai and Sora are strong…they can do this!" Mimi's crest of Sincerity shined.
"Never give up hope!" T.K Cried.
"Light always wins!" Kari yelled.
The crests of Light and Hope shined as well.
"Let's help out!" Davis cued his group. Davis, Yolei, Ken, and Cody held their digivices up towards Plareidramon.
"I love everyone here and I won't stand for them to be hurt!" Sora shouted.
"I'm not giving up until we've won!" Tai screamed as well.
The crests of Love and Courage shined.
All of the colors, Orange, Red, Blue, Gray, Green, Purple, Yellow, and Pink, combined together and shot at Plareidramon, who was lying helplessly on the ground.
"IT'S NEVER TOO LATE TO FORGIVE AND FORGET!" Tai and Sora bellowed in unison.
A fiery color shot from their crests and over to Plareidramon as well.
"I can feel the energy!" Plareidramon stated.
"THE LIGHT!!!" DarkAngewoman howled as all the crests dropped into the chosen children's hands.
"FINISH HER OFF!" Tai roared.
"RING OF FIRE!" Plareidramon attacked with undying energy. The ring surrounded her and she was being deleted. Plareidramon di-digivolved back into Biyomon and Agumon.
"I may be done for, but so is one of you!" DarkAngewoman howled. "DARK STORM!" The attack was fired as soon as she was deleted and an evil laugh echoed.
No one saw it coming, except for Tai that is. The black energy was aimed right for Sora and he wasn't about to let her get hurt. He threw himself right in front of his best friend, who didn't see it coming. "Tai, what are you-" Before she could finish the attack pummeled into Tai's chest. "TAICHI!" She dropped to her knees by his side. She could see the dark attack eating at him.
"Sora….." He mumbled.
"TAICHI! Why'd you do that?" She demanded.
"You would've gotten hurt, Sora and you in pain is more than I can bear." He told her weakly.
"HANG ON TAICHI!!!!" She yelled in fear, fear of losing her best friend.
The rest of the Digidestined stared blankly at the two, except for Kari, who had dropped to the ground and was weeping. T.K was silent as he hugged her.
"Sora. The fight we had was stupid, I was a jerk, but what makes our bond so strong is that we always know it's better to just Forgive and Forget." Tai stated. "Nothing can tear us apart."
Sora listened to his words and felt her eyes sting as tears stained her cheeks. He was dying and he was almost completely gone. His hands dropped to his side and he took his last breath.
"TAICHI!!!!! NO! I LOVE YOU!" Sora screamed through her tears.
A/N: And that was the day Tai died…NO! I'm just kidding. He doesn't die. I love him too much to make him die.
Once again the crest of Forgiveness shined from both of their tags and a fiery color surrounded Tai.
Everyone just stared.
"Sora…" He said weakly. She took her face out of her hands and looked at him. 'Am I hearing things?' She thought. "Sora…I'm here."
"YOU'RE ALIVE!" She shouted and hugged him tightly as he sat up.
"But how?" Izzy questioned.
Kari dashed over to her brother and hugged him as well.
"I'm guessing it was the power of the crest of Forgiveness that healed him." Joe simply stated.
After the hugging fest they helped Tai up and Joe bandaged him. Sora and Kari sat by Tai's side. Matt walked over and put his hand gently on Sora's shoulder. "We need to talk."
"Okay." She replied. She got up and followed Matt away from everyone. Once they were away, she gave him a huge hug. "I didn't know if I'd see you again."
"I was so worried about you, but we really need to talk."
"About what?" She wondered out loud.
"Sora…what you said out there when Tai was dying…." Matt began. "Did you mean it?"
"Mean what?" Sora asked. She didn't know what he was talking about.
"That you love him." Matt replied.
"I said that?" She asked.
"Yeah. You did and I think you meant it."
"Well of course I love him, he's my best friend."
"Sora…that's not what I meant and you know it."
"Oh! I don't know!" She cried.
"I think you do and I think we should break up. It's for the best."
"Okay." She agreed. Tears filled her eyes once again.
"Friends?" He asked.
"Friends." She said. Matt leaned in and kissed her on the cheek.
Tai watched Sora and Matt from a distance. All he wanted was a chance. Sora walked over towards the group again. It was now or never.
"Sora…" He put a hand on her shoulder. She turned around. "What is it, Tai?"
"You know how you said, friends don't keep things from each other?"
"Well, yeah, but I said that when we were arguing earlier. Just forget about it. You don't need to tell me."
"But I want to." Tai told her.
"Okay then. Go ahead." She urged him.
"I'm jealous." He blurted.
"Jealous? Of who?"
"Matt." He replied softly.
"Matt? Why?" 'Where's he going with this?' She thought.
"He has something that I don't."
"Well, he may be the lead singer of a band, but your captain of the varsity soccer team. And he may have crystal blue eyes, but you have gentle chocolate eyes. What does he have that you don't?"
"A girlfriend." He looked down at the ground.
A sad look fell upon Sora's face. "Not anymore, he doesn't."
"What happened?" Tai asked. "If he broke up with you I'll kill him!"
"No. No. We just decided to call it quits. It's not his fault." She started to cry.
"Sora don't cry, maybe it was meant to be." He comforted her.
"I guess your right. Sorry." She said as she wiped tears from her face. "Thanks. Anyway, I'm sure the perfect girl for you is out there somewhere. She's just waiting for you to find her."
"I already have found her."
"Oh. Who's the lucky girl?" Sora piped up. 'Who could it be?' He was silent.
"Actions speak louder than words." He finally answered.
"I don't get-" Sora was cut off because she couldn't talk anymore. It took her a while to realize what was happening….
There was no doubt about it. Her best friend, Tai Kamiya, was kissing her! When he pulled away. She just stared at him.
"Tai..I had no idea." She finally spoke.
"Well, now you do and I'm totally embarrassed! I'm so stupid!" He cursed at himself.
"No you're not." She gave him a hug. "Well, maybe you are, but that's a different story."
"HEY!" He yelled. Sora laughed.
"Oh by the way, how are you feeling?" She asked.
"Okay. My chest is just sore."
Silence fell upon the two.
"Hey guys! Time to go!" Davis yelled. "Everyone's left already. Lets go!"
Tai and Sora ran to the digital gate as Davis went through.
"When we get home, you on for a game of soccer?" Tai asked as they ran.
"Sure, but I'm going to win!"
"Nuh uh!" Tai yelled.
They continued to argue as they reached the gate and went home.
Good ending? Or bad ending? I'd like some feedback and look out for the next chapter in my new fic, "Head Games."
Love you all.
Thanks for reading.
