part 8:

The Digidestined stared at Myodevimon. "How-?" Patamon asked.

"How can it be you?" Gatomon asked.

Myodevimon smirked,"When you defeated Devimon and Myotismon, then found themselves drawn to each other on the other side. They were pulled together and I was created. Here, I opened my new eyes for the first time, my new heart, beating with revenge, and now I will destroy you!"

"Okay, guys," Sora said," what do we do?"

"I need to get to that access panel behind him in order to undo what was done to us," Joe said.

"Okay," Sora nodded,"We've got to beat him. Digivolve, everyone!"

"Agumon warp digivolve to Wargreymon!"

"Gabumon warp digivolve to Metalgarurumon!"

Mimi and Matt both stared at Metalgarurumon. "How did you do that?" Mimi asked.

Myodevimon smirked,"Isn't it obvious?"

"Of course!" Joe snapped his fingers," the Digimon's power DOESN'T come from their partner, but from the digivices and crests!"

"That's right," Tai said,"That happened when I was fighting Queen Amazonmon! I felt love for Kari, then Birdramon became Garudamon!"

Matt stared at Mimi's crest,"and when Togemon became Lillymon."

"Well?" Myodevimon asked, flying towards them," Are we going to fight?"

"Terra Force!"

Wargreymon threw his attack at Myodevimon, but he canceled it with a swipe of Devimon's claw. Turning to Metalgarurumon, he said,"Well, what about you?"

"Metal Wolf Claw!"

"Bat Fist" Myodevimon yelled, shooting a bat out of his fist. It dissolved Metalgarurumon's attack on contact.

"What about the rest of you? Bat Fist!" he said, as the attack headed straight for Tai.

"Ahh!" Tai said as he covered his head.

"Biyomon digivolve to Birdramon!"

"Meteor Wing!"

There was a small explosion as the Bat Fist was destroyed. "Thanks," Tai said.

"Quickly!" Sora said,"Everyone else digivolve!"

"Tentomon digivolve to Kabuterimon!"

"Palmon digivolve to Togemon!"

"Gomamon digivolve to Ikkakumon!"

"Patamon digivolve to Angemon!"

"Now!" Wargreymon commanded,"Attack at the same time. Terra Force!"

"Metal Wolf Claw!"

"Meteor Wing!"


"Needle Spray!"

"Harpoon Torpedo!"

"Hand of Fate!"

"Lightning Claw!"

Myodevimon was hit and thrown back into the wall. As soon as he hit, the wall crumbled to reveal a statue of a man behind it. "Nice try," he said, standing back up,"but I'm still stronger than all of you combined!"

"Birdramon digivolve to Garudamon!"

"Kabuterimon digivolve to Megakabuterimon!"

"Togemon digivolve to Lillymon!"

"Ikkakumon digivolve to Zudomon!"

"Angemon digivolve to Magnaangemon!"

"Gatomon digivolve to Angewomon!"

The glow from the crest filled the room, sending the darkness away. "So bright!" Myodevimon said, shielding his eyes, "Stop the glowing!"

"We can't!" Joe shouted,"Something is feeding off of our crest!"

"That is me!" a voice bombed. The light from all eight crest gathered onto the statue of the map. It glowed a dark red color, then the statue exploded, leaving in its place a living figure. "I am the Master CPU!" it said.

"'re the Master CPU?" Joe asked, confused.

"Yes, all along you thought that Myodevimon was the enemy, was in fact, he was just a pawn! I gathered him to complete his mission, get you to come here to I could drain the power from your crest and revive myself, and I must say, I am quiet surprised how he did it!"

"I..I was just a pawn?" Myodevimon asked.

"Yes," the Master CPU nodded," One that has outlived its usefulness!"

With a wave of his hand, Myodevimon disappeared in a flash of light. "Now," he said,"To destroy you."

He put his hands together like a gun and fired an energy shot. The Digimon pushed the Digidestined out of the way and back up the entrance. "Where are you going?" the Master CPU asked as he followed.

"Doesn't this guy know when to give up?" Matt asked as Lillymon carried him away.

"We have to stop him!" Sora said.

"But what about switching you guys back?" T.K. asked.

"I don't see anywhere to plug in," Izzy said, "So I'm betting this was a setup from the very beginning."

"That doesn't matter now!" Sora said,"We've got to stop the Master CPU first, then we'll decided what to do!"

"Okay," Wargreymon said,"You heard them. Let's go!"

"Terra Force!"

"Metal Wolf Claw!"

"Wing Blade!"

"Horn Buster!"

"Flower Cannon!"

"Vulcan's Hammer!"

"Gate of Destiny!"

"Celestial Arrow!"

The Master CPU was hit with a tremendous explosion, sending the Digidestined flying back towards the camp by the lake where this whole thing started.

Later that night, Tai was sitting on the shore, looking out across the lake. He heard a noise behind him. Turning around he saw Sora. It didn't even phase him anymore that she was in his body. "Hi, Tai," she said.

"Hi, Sora," he said as she sat next to him. "So, I guess you're stuck as me now."

She smiled," And you're me. It shouldn't be that hard the live as each other, I'm starting to get some of your memories."

"And I'm getting some of yours," he said.

"..and you're feelings," they both said at the same time.

"I guess it would be pointless to say it since we both now it, huh?" Tai asked.

Sora nodded. They started to move towards each other, then she said,"I..Its going to be weird from this side."

Tai smiled,"I know a way to make it easier for both of us."

"Oh really?"

"Yeah, we're going to be stuck like this forever, so......Tai."

"I understand, Sora."

They kissed, then the new Tai said to the new Sora,"by the way, you look pretty good in that outfit."
