then in 02 you see more Sorato evidence.
"Pass it to me, Sora!" Tai shouted, "I'm open!"
'Tai, you have no idea this is the last time I'll ever pass
you the ball,' thought Sora as she dribbled closer to Tai and kicked the ball
to him. Sora had plans to quit soccer and start playing tennis.
"You're quitting the soccer team?!" Mimi gasped, "but you love soccer!"
"I know," Sora moaned.
"You were the only girl on the team, Sora," Mimi said, "I think that's cool!"
"Well, I'll just join a team that has other girls on it!" Sora snapped.
"I don't think that's the real reason you're quitting,"
Mimi said, crossing her arms.
Sora didn't reply.
"You haven't?" Mimi mumbled, "Sora, why not?"
"Well, I," she said, "I just figured he'd find out on his own when I don't show up for next season's practice."
"You're not even planning on telling him?" Mimi
demanded, "are you crazy?
"Don't say that!" Sora cried, "That's not true!"
"I said you are like a couple," Mimi said, "I
didn't say you are one. Did he do something to make you mad?"
"Tai has nothing to do with this," Sora said and turned around.
"I think he does," Mimi pressed, "Come
on Sora, this is me you're talking to.
"That's right, you did," Sora said, turning back around, "and you're moving next week."
"Yup," she said, "so before I leave I want to
know the truth.
Sora sat down, "Well, perhaps maybe even the first day we landed in the Digiworld, I started to have feelings for Tai."
"I knew that," Mimi said, "He was number one
on your 'watch over' list.
"Mimi!" Sora gasped.
"Sorry, as you were saying?"
"Well, I can't seem to control them anymore," Sora
said, "My feelings for Tai have gotten stronger.
"Wow," Mimi sighed, "perhaps you should tell him."
"No, I can't," Sora said, "it would ruin our
"Maybe he would understand," Mimi said.
"But if there's a chance he won't," Sora said,
"I can't take it.
"Oh yes," Mimi laughed, "I'm going to miss you guys though."
"We'll miss you to," Sora said.
"Hey, let me show you some New York magazines!" Mimi giggled, "I got tons!" she reached in her bag and took out a bunch of magazines, "I might as well be prepared to go shopping!"
"My word, Mimi," Sora gasped, "you're just going to New York, not the army!"
Tai kicked the ball right into the goal.
Tai noticed the sad look on her face.
"Hey Sora!" Tai shouted after her, "wait a minute!"
She stopped, "oh, hey!"
"You forgot this," he gave her a blue ribbon, "We
were undefeatable this season.
"Yeah," she said.
"I wonder what next season will be like," Tai said.
Sora shrugged, "You'll see."
"Don't you mean 'we'll see?'"
"Bye Sora, see ya next year!" some boys shouted as
they waved away.
"Bye guys!" she called out and then she looked
back at Tai.
"Are you moving?" Tai asked.
"No, not really," Sora said. "I'm going to start playing tennis."
"Tennis??!" Tai gasped.
"Are you mad?" Sora inquired.
'You quit soccer for tennis?!' Tai thought.
"You too," she said.
"Sure," he replied.
"I'd like that," she sighed, "I um, gotta
"Yeah, bye Sora," Tai said, watching Sora vanish
Sora's mom wasn't at home when she got there.
"There he is!" Tai's father shouted, "man of the hour!"
"I was wondering where you guys disappeared to after
half time," Tai said, "what's all this?" The living room was
decorated with balloons and streamers.
"Just a little congratulations party," Kari teased as she took off Tai's goggles and put a party hat on his head.
"Whoa, careful Kari," Tai said, "watch the hair!"
"Your team was winning so we left during halftime to do this," Tai's mom said, "but we knew you were going to win anyway."
"I wonder what next season will be like," Kari said.
"It will be better than this season," Tai's dad
said, "That's for sure!
Tai blushed, "thanks."
Sora did become an excellent tennis player, better than she
ever was in soccer. She didn't have a doubt in her mind that she did the right
'I can't believe that little guy is Sora's replacement!' Tai
thought, looking at Davis practice dribbling.
Tai watched Davis kick the soccer up and bounce it off his chest and do another stunt.
'Well, he is pretty good.' Tai thought.
"Wow," Kari said, coming to visit her brother while he practiced, "who's the new kid?"
"His name is Davis," Tai replied.
"He's pretty good," Kari said, "but I think it was cool when Sora was still on the team."
"Me too," Tai whispered.
Davis looked up at Tai's younger sister as he was practicing
kicking the ball up.
Tai guffawed and Kari giggled.
"Come here, Davis," Tai said, trying to keep from laughing, "I want you to meet my sister."
"Okay," Davis mumbled, rubbing his head, hearts still in his eyes, "I'm Davis Motimya…wow, you're really cute!"
Tai cleared his throat.
Kari smiled, "well, it's nice to meet you.
"Kaaaaarrriiiiii," Davis moaned.
"Maybe I'll see you at school sometime," Kari said, trying to sound polite, though he was starting to get on her nerves.
"Yeeaaaaaahhhhh." He kept his hand tight around hers.
"Um," Kari mumbled, "well, bye."
"Davis, let go of my sister's hand!" Tai roared.
Kari gave her big brother one of those famous 'what would I do without you, big brother?' looks.
"Oh," he dropped it and stepped back, "I'm going to, um, ah, practice dribbling some more!"
'Sora, I really wished you stayed on the team!' Tai thought.
When school started that year, Kari could not believe her luck when Davis was in her class.
'Oh no,' she thought, 'I don't believe this!'
"Hi Kari!" Davis cried, "Wow, you're in my class, that's great!" He sat in the seat beide her and sighed as he looked ath her.
Kari smiled nervously, 'It's going to be a LONG year….' She thought to herself.
Matt could no longer deny it.
She was growing farther away from Matt and the others and
closer to all her new friends and Michael, no matter how much she hated to
Matt would call once a week and sometimes she'd call
He just couldn't help it.
No, that was a crazy idea. Even though Matt thought about it
He sighed and lay his guitar down, "I don't know what
to sing about," he said.
"I can't do that," he said to himself, "Tai
still likes her.
Matt had no choice.
"Hello?" her mom answered.
"Has Sora come home from practice yet?" Matt asked.
"No, I'm sorry," she said, "She won't be home
for another hour.
"That's all right, thanks anyway," Matt said.
Matt went over to the tennis courts and waited until Sora
was finished with practice.
"Oh my gosh, is that Matt Ishida?" Gwen squealed.
Sora stopped playing, "Matt?" she mumbled and
"I need to talk to you," he replied.
"Are you okay?" Sora asked, surprised that he touched her.
Matt shook his head.
"I don't believe it," Gwen said, "He's going to ask Sora out!"
"I still have ten minutes left of practice," Sora said, "you don't mind waiting do you?"
"No, not at all," he said with a smile, "I can wait."
"Miss Takenouchi, are we going to play tennis or are we going to flirt for the remaining ten minutes of practice?" the tennis couch demanded.
"I'm coming!" Sora cried and returned back to take her spot.
Matt stepped closer to the fence and waited patiently for
the ten minutes to pass. 'Sora certainly is beautiful,' he thought.
"Practice is over ladies," the coach said,
"now go home and get some rest.
"See you tomorrow, Coach," the girls said before breaking.
"Sora," Gwen said, "be sure to tell me everything Matt tells you, okay?" she smiled and walked away.
"Yeah," Ashley said, "can you ask if he's got a brother?" (I heard Sora talk to a girl named Ashley too.)
"He has a brother," Sora reported, "he's name's TK and I think he's younger than you are."
"Darn," Ashley and Gwen sighed.
"How do you know though?" Ashley demanded.
"Well, Matt and I are friends," she replied.
"Friends?" Gwen gasped, "I can't believe you never told us?"
"I'm sorry, but I need to."
"The nerve!" Gwen grumbled.
Sora opened the gate, "Hey, what did you want to talk me about?"
Matt peered over her shoulder, "let's not talk here,
okay?" the girls were watching him. He took her hand and began walking
"Wow, did you see that?" Ashley freaked.
"Matt, what's going on?" Sora demanded, following in his footsteps as he practically dragged her to his apartment, "Are you okay?"
"No, not really," he unlocked the door and let her
Sora took off her shoes, "I don't think I've been to your home before."
"Been a while since TK has been here either," Matt
"No thanks Matt," she said, "My mom would be
wondering why I didn't come straight home after practice.
"Don't worry, this won't take long," Matt said, "Here, sit down."
"Okay," she sat down on the sofa.
"Well, I'm, well, lonely," he said.
"Lonely?" she mumbled, close to laughing, "you're a rock star with many friends, not to mention that Jun girl who is always chasing after you and you're lonely?"
Matt sighed and rubbed his forehead, "Sora, I miss Mimi."
"Yeah, me too," Sora said.
"I gave her a tape the day she left for New York," Matt said.
"I know," Sora said, "I saw you give it to
her. That was really sweet.
"She did?" Matt asked, "she didn't tell me
"That email was a long time ago," Sora told him,
"like the week after she arrived in New York.
"Did she tell you anything else?" Matt
"Matt, what's going on?" she stood up, "you're beginning to frighten me."
Matt stood up and took her by the shoulders, "Sora,
you're Mimi's best friend.
"You're hurting me," she said, "Matt, what's
the matter? What's with all these questions?
"She didn't tell you?" he asked.
"Actually, we're not dating," he said.
"Michael," Sora said.
"Michael," Matt gasped, "yes!
"Calm down, Matt!" she shouted, "just calm
"But you're her best friend," Matt mumbled.
"Yeah, her best friend, not her mother!"
Matt sighed, "I still don't understand though."
"Why don't you email her and ask?" Sora asked suggestively.
"I need to know now," he said, "then tell me
what you think.
"Actually, I think Tai has hit you too hard in the head
all those times," Sora said, "You're scaring me, Matt and if you won't
calm yourself down I'll leave."
"No wait, don't go Sora!" he shouted, "Please!"
"I'm sorry, Sora," Matt mumbled, sitting back down
on the sofa and ran his hands though his golden blond hair in frustration,
"I didn't mean to scare you.
"Matt, listen to me," she sat down next to him,
"Mimi has been over at New York for quite a while now.
"Really?" he asked.
"Yeah," she said.
"No problem," Sora said.
"Sora, wait," Matt said.
He stood up, "why did you stop playing soccer?
"No," she said, lacing up her last shoe.
"He told me that he thought he did something
wrong," Matt said and stepped closer. "Whatever he did he's
"It's not Tai's fault I quit the team," Sora told
him, "so you can tell him he doesn't need to be sorry.
Matt sighed and sat down, wondering what he should do next.
Matt grabbed Tai after his soccer practice, "Hey, Matt!" Tai cried, "thanks for getting me out of practice…Davis is crazy!"
"For Kari, you mean."
The two guys began walking down the street.
"Yeah," Tai groaned, "You give a guy your goggles and he thinks he can have your sister too."
"I don't think Kari likes him much," Matt said.
"My sister's smart," Tai said with a grin, "she likes your brother!"
"She does?" Matt mumbled.
"You've never noticed it?"
"I think I'll talk to TK about it later," Matt said.
"It's no problem," Tai said, "TK's the only guy I'll let near my sister!"
"So, what's up?" Tai asked.
"You don't have to be sorry anymore," Matt replied.
"Huh?" Tai mumbled.
"I talked to Sora yesterday," Matt said.
"You did?" Tai asked, trying to keep his anger under control
"Yeah," Matt replied, "I was emailing Mimi and sending her tapes but I haven't been hearing much of her lately so I went to see Sora."
"I haven't heard from Mimi lately either," Tai said, "I only get a post card from her on the holidays or whenever she goes on a trip somewhere."
"Sora told me that Mimi's doing just fine in New York," Matt said.
"Did she tell you anything else?" Tai required, "was that all you wanted to know?"
"Not exactly," Matt said back.
"Well," Matt said, "I told her that you were sorry if you ever made her mad."
"Is she still angry for that time I gave her a hair clip for her birthday?" Tai demanded, "I emailed saying I was sorry about it!"
"At least you gave her something for her
birthday," Matt told him, "I didn't give her anything.
"She said something like that to me," Tai said,
"but I'm sure there's more to it.
"Whatever that something more is," Matt said,
"she didn't tell me what it is. Tai, I know you like Sora, why don't you
ask her out?
"I can't," Tai said.
"She's only left the team, Tai," Matt said, "not the country."
"The way things are between me and Sora now," Tai
said, "she might as well have. I'd better get going.
"Yeah, later," Matt mumbled.
That day on, Matt and Sora's friendship got a bit
(AN: This info may not be all accurate, I only saw this episode maybe once or twice.)
"Sora," Tai began, his voice a bit shaky, "you want to come with me to the concert?"
"Sorry Tai," she replied, "I was going to see if Matt's available afterwards."
"You're not mad, are you?" she asked.
"No, I'm not mad," Tai said, again, having to
force a smile that almost broke his heart.
Sora smiled faintly back then left.
'Man, I sure wish I still had my crest of courage,' Tai thought to him self, 'If only I still had my crest of courage.'
The concert was going just nicely--until--a digimon (I can't
remember which one) stormed in the concert. There were rocks falling down from
the roof and they would have crushed Sora if it weren't for Matt.
"Sora, you all right?" Matt asked, helping her to her feet.
"I'm fine," she said in shock.
"Don't worry about that," Matt said, "I'm just glad you're okay."
"What about all the others?" she asked.
"TK and the others are taking care of that."
Tai figured the best spot for him to be is with his sister
and the others right now.
"Does it bother you that Sora is with Tai instead of you?" Izzy asked Matt.
"Of course not," Matt said, "I trust Sora completely and Tai's my best friend."
(This is what I think happened when Sora was with Tai.
"Some holiday this is turning out to be," Sora mumbled.
"I know you're scared, Sora," Tai said, "I'm scared too, but we remember how everything turned out 4 years ago, don't we?"
"Yeah," she said, "everything turned out okay."
"Same thing will happen this time," he said encouragingly.
"Tai, I um," she said, "Need to tell you something."
"What is it?" he asked.
"I lied to you," she whispered.
She wiped her tears away, "I didn't quit the team
because I lost interest in soccer.
"I did something stupid, didn't I?" he asked.
"No, Tai, I did," Sora said.
"Sora, what could you wrong?" he inquired, making a small laugh, "I don't recall you ever making a mistake."
"But I did!" she shouted, "I lied to
"What, is there an evil digimon behind me?" Tai turned around.
"No," she said.
"Then what's wrong?" he asked and took both her hands in his.
"I quit the team because I had feelings for you!" she shouted so loud that maybe the whole world heard it.
Tai gasped, "You, you did?" He smiled faintly.
"Yes," she nodded, "I ruined everything! I'm
so, so sorry!" she placed her palms together like she was praying and
pulled her hands to her nose.
"I don't' hate you, Sora," Tai said, "I think
"I never met this to happen," Sora said, "I guess I just felt sorry for Matt."
"If you want to continue to date Matt," Tai said, "that's all right with me."
Biyomon and Agumon exchanged glances as if to say, 'humans…'
"It is?" she mumbled.
"Yeah," he said, "we're best friends.
"Oh, Tai, thank you!" she threw her arms around him.
"I only want you to be happy, Sora," Tai whispered in her ear, using whatever courage he had left to keep his tears back, "and being with Matt makes you happy then I say go for it."
"You're the greatest," she said.
"Tai," Agumon said, breaking the tender moment, "there's a lot of trouble going on down there."
"Then I know what you should do!" he took out his digivice.
"Is it over?" Sora mumbled.
"Yeah, Sora," Matt said, taking Sora's hand,
"it's all over now."
Tai couldn't help it but he kept his eyes on them.
