Me: Hey

Me: Hey! It's been a while since I've done a Drama type story, but here goes! I don't own Digimon, although I do own Blightmon. I also don't own any-and I mean any!-song I may use in this story from the Digimon soundtrack.

Tai: That's a frightening thought-you actually owning a Digimon who gives off radiation at 1/10ths of a second!

Davis: At least he won't have to use a microwave to heat things up!

Me: Shut up you two! Sheesh, the things I go through everyday while waiting for my leg to heal from that accident…

Digimon: The Needs of the Many…

Prologue-The Return of Blightmon

Taichi "Tai" Kamiya grimaced with sadness as he thought of his ex-girlfriend, Sora Takenouchi. She'd broken up with him because she thought that he was cheating on her with her most hated rival, Akemi-even though he really wasn't; he had wanted to know what to get her for her upcoming birthday. The one thing Tai was prepared to give her was the one thing he hadn't counted on giving her this early in life…a chance to make a difference by sacrificing something…or someone really important.

It's been one week since you looked at me, cocked your head to the side and said, "I'm angry!"

Five days since you laughed at me, saying "Get that together, come back and see me."

Three days since the living room, I realize it's all my fault but couldn't tell you

Yesterday you'd forgiven me but it'll still be two days till I say, "I'm sorry!"

How can I help it if I think you're funny when you're mad?

Trying hard not to smile though I feel bad

I'm the kind of guy who laughs at a funeral; can't understand what I mean? Well, you soon will

I have a tendency to wear my mind on my sleeve

I have a history of taking off my shirt…

Struggling to hold back her tears, Sora listened to the song on the radio and noticed how much it reminded her of Tai.

"Maybe I should've given him a chance to explain himself instead of just jumping to conclusions like I always do! Every time I see him from across the halls at school or whenever we've got some emergency in the Digital World, he always looks so sad. That's it! Tomorrow, I'm going to talk to Tai and ask for another chance at our relationship. Technically, it's my fault for destroying it in the first place, not Tai's…even if he cheated on me with Akemi. Hey, the song's almost over!" Finally done with thinking about Tai for a moment, Sora went back to listening to the remainder of the song.

How can I help it if I think you're funny when you're mad?

Trying hard not to smile though I feel bad

I'm the kind of guy who laughs at a funeral; can't understand what I mean? You soon will

I have a tendency to wear my mind on my sleeve

I have a history of losing my shirt

Chorus: It's been one week since you looked at me, dropped your arms to the side and said, "I'm sorry!"

Five days since I laughed at you and said, "You just did just what I thought you were gonna do!"

Three days since the living room we realized we're both to blame but what could we do?

Yesterday, you just smiled at me 'cause it'll be two days till we say, "We're sorry!"

The Digital World. Supposedly at peace. The reason I say "supposedly" is simple: a Digimon that was at the Mega level, but was stronger than five Mega Digimon at once, was slowly gaining control of everything. And the strange thing about this Digimon was this-he appeared human, but was glowing with a greenish color that surrounded his body! He was known as Blightmon, a terrifying Digimon with two deadly attacks of pure radiation: Hell's Fury and Radiating Heatwave.

"It's time! Now that I have taken over more than ½ of the Digital World, the fun begins. Once I lure the DigiDestined back here, the World-both of them-will be at my mercy, and not even their strongest Digimon can stop me. But what will bring them back? What could they call a dire emergency, something so drastic and so life threatening that they would drop whatever they were doing and come here? Ah-ha! I've got it…The perfect plan…"

Tai hadn't expected Sora to talk to him, much less drop by at 11:00 at night for a "private talk." So, he lead her outside of his room to the balcony that pretty much oversaw the entire city, to a point.

"You wanted to talk to me, Sor?" Tai asked calmly, choosing to use the nickname he hadn't used for her since they were kids; he was in the hope that by doing so, she wouldn't kill him or she'd at least go easy on him.

"I'm sorry! I shouldn't have broken up with you over Akemi. I made a mistake and judged you unfairly when I should've listened to your side of the story. But, I'm not so sure we should get together again so soon." Sora shivered a bit, knowing she was lying to herself as well as to Tai. He knew it too, but also knew well enough to not force Sora to do something she claimed she wasn't ready for.

"I'll be waiting…" Tai leaned forward and kissed Sora lightly on her rapidly blushing cheek. Instantly, both her cheeks flushed a rosy pinkish color as she gazed into Tai's chocolate brown eyes.

That's when things went south. The earth started shaking and items and pictures fell to the ground! Tai grabbed hold of the railing, whereas Sora grabbed hold of him, not releasing him from her grip. Seconds later, their Dterminals went off. Tai grabbed his and turned it on.

Guys, we've got a humongous problem! Gennai's been ambushed by a radioactive Digimon who's power levels exceed five Mega Digimon. We're needed in the Digital World as soon as possible! Tai and Sora sighed, knowing the message was from Izzy.

"So Tai, do we go to the Digital World now or wait until morning?" Sora asked with ease, still holding Tai safely wrapped around her arms.

"Hmm…we'd have a better chance of beating this guy when we're all rested. I'll send Izzy an email saying that it'd be better if we all went in the morning once we're rested up." Moments later, Tai sent it off and led Sora to his bed. (A/N: Not for that, you nutcases!)

"Tai, what are you-"

"If this Digimon can ambush Gennai in his home, then he can ambush us in the Real World! It's not safe for you to go home tonight. I'll have Kari bring Biyomon by tomorrow via the computer. Good night, Sora. If you need me, Agumon and I…" Tai took that moment to yank his partner off of his bed sheet, "…will be on the couch."

"Tai, what'd you do that for? I was sleeping peacefully until you woke me up! You're gonna-"

Agumon's threat was closed off when Tai shut the door. Sora giggled a bit then relaxed in the covers, recognizing Tai's familiar smell beneath the blanket.

"Good night, Tai. I love you…"

Morning arrived too quickly for the team. Once Sora woke up, she found a pair of wings, as well as a pink body, smothering her face with a hug.

"Good morning Sora! Tai climbed the fire escape at six in the morning to come and get me. I hope you and Tai are getting back together, 'cause personally, I think you two deserve each other-better than the odds Agumon gave you and Matt lasting!" Sora chuckled a bit as she listened to what Biyomon explained what had happened to her this morning.

"What were the odds? More likely, they were Tai's odds and not Agumon's!"

"Oh, about 80% that you two would break up and 20% that you'd stay with him, but those are Agumon's odds, not mine."

"Sora, hope you're dressed 'cause we've gotta go!" Tai yelled from outside the door. "I'll buy you a cup of coffee or something on the way to Izzy's."

A few minutes later, the team all found themselves at Izzy's house, anxiously waiting for him to explain what had happened to Gennai.

"Spit it out, Izzy! What's going on?" Matt demanded heatedly.

"Well, it appears that Gennai had restored our Crests thanks to Azulongmon's Digicore. But Blightmon ambushed him before he could work on activating the Crest of Miracles for Davis-he did create it fully, by the way. By using his Radiating Heatwave attack, Blightmon scorched Gennai's back and most of his hair! Gennai was barely able to send our Crests here, but Blightmon stole the Digicore and absorbed the energy from it! Not even 10 Mega Digimon could beat him with the energy that's coursing through him right now." Izzy warned.

"So, what do we do? Do we go to the DigiWorld and track him down?" T.K. asked.

"As we are, no. The only available Mega Digimon we have are WarGreymon and Imperialdramon. Matt, you've got to find a way to get Gabumon to Warp-Digivolve again so we can recreate Omnimon and have at least one fighting chance against this walking radiator!" Izzy insisted.

Matt grimaced slightly. The only way Gabumon could Warp-Digivolve was if he attempted to revive the friendship between him, Tai and Sora. So far, neither was willing to talk to him, but he wasn't giving up.

"Then, let's go!" Davis demanded as he picked up his Crest of Miracles. It glowed brightly with a golden color. As the other original DigiDestined crowded around him, they all picked up their own Crests.

"We should have some sort of plan before we go rushing in." Kari suggested.

"We'll think of one when we get there. Digiport, open!" Tai yelled out as he pulled Davis' arm up and pointed his Digivice toward Izzy's computer. Seconds afterward, all twelve DigiDestined and their Digimon were yanked in and were sent to the Digital World!

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh…(here we go!)

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, ohoooooo…
