"Takeru-kun you're going to be late for school!"
Takeru groaned he didn't want to wake up just yet. He had had a difficult time falling asleep last night and to top off his exhaustion he had a massive headache.
"I'm up okaasan," Takeru called as he got out of bed and changed into his school uniform, "I'll be home late today my friends are planning a little outing."
"Are you going to visit Patamon?"
"Yeah," Takeru said as he walked into the kitchen of the small apartment they lived in.
"Say hi to him for me,"
"I will okaasan," Takeru said as he grabbed a piece of toast, "See you later."
"You're leaving already?"
"Yeah," Takeru said, "Miyako-san, Iori-kun and I are going to walk to school together."
"Have a good day Takeru-kun."
"You too okaasan," Takeru said as he put his shoes on and left the house. As he opened the door he was greeted by Iori and Miyako, "Ohayo Iori-kun, Miyako-san."
"Ohayo gozimasu Takeru-san," Iori said.
"Ohayo!" Miyako said, "Are you ready?"
"Yeah," Takeru said, "Let's go."
"Takeru-san, are you feeling alright?" Iori asked.
"Yeah," Takeru said, "Why do you ask Iori-kun?"
"You look tired," Iori said, "And you're not as talkative this morning."
"I'm fine," Takeru said, "I had another nightmare about losing Angemon."
"You won't have to worry about that," Miyako said, "The digital world has been quiet."
"Yeah I know but it still bothers me," Takeru said.
"Well here's my stop," Miyako said, "I'll see you later."
"See you later," Iori called.
As Iori and Takeru kept walking, Iori began to worry about Takeru, "Takeru-san you really don't look well," Iori said, "are you sure you're feeling alright?"
"Don't worry Iori-kun," Takeru said, "I'm just a little tired."
"If you say so," Iori said.
"Tailmon what is that?" Patamon asked.
"That's what I want to know," Tailmon said, "That's why I called Hikari, But Patamon; I've got a feeling that the chosen children will be making a comeback."
"Let's go get the others," Patamon said.
Takeru found it difficult to concentrate in school that day but it wasn't because of the digital world excursion. He felt strangely off perhaps he was coming down with the cold that was going around.
"Takeru-kun, are you alright?" Hikari asked.
"Yeah," Takeru said, "I had another nightmare about the time that Angemon died fighting Devimon. Then I couldn't get back to sleep after wards." He smiled, "And I can't wait to see Patamon again."
"Tailmon said that she found something in the mountain region that brought up some concern," Hikari said, "We're going to investigate, will you be up to it?"
"Yeah," Takeru said, "Don't worry about me Hikari-chan."
At that moment Ken walked up to the table, "Ken-kun," Hikari said as he sat down and put his head on the table, "Are you feeling alright?"
"Not really," he said, "I have a terrible headache."
Hikari lay her hand on Ken's forehead, "You have a fever Ken-kun," She said, "Come on I'll take you to the nurse."
"Thank you Hikari-chan." Ken muttered as he stood as followed Hikari out of the room.
"Do you really think that there is a new threat to the digital world?"
"What are you going to do?"
"I'm going to try to partner up with the Japanese group. They have twelve in their group and they have dealt with threats before."
"But you don't speak Japanese how are you going to communicate with them?"
"I don't know…"
When the school bell finally rang Hikari, Daisuke, Takeru and Iori met up with Miyako and Koushirou.
"Miyako-san," Hikari said, "Ken-kun isn't here. He came down with a cold and went home early."
"He came down with the cold that's going around?" Miyako asked, "Aw man I have so much to tell him too. I'll just e-mail him later"
"Well," Takeru said, "let's not leave our friends in the Digital world waiting."
"Hikari-chan," Daisuke said, "Is Takeru-kun alright? He's acting weird."
"We'll head there at my apartment," Koushirou said before Hikari could reply, "My parents won't freak out."
"He said he had a nightmare last night," Hikari said as Takeru sneezed a few times, "Takeru-kun, are you coming down with a cold?"
"No," Takeru said with a forced laugh, "Someone must be talking about me."
'Takeru-kun you're a horrible liar,' Hikari thought.
"Hikari-chan," Daisuke called, "Are you coming?"
"Hai," Hikari called.
"Hello Koushirou-kun," His mother greeted, "Oh you brought friends do you want some snacks?"
"That won't be necessary," Koushirou said, "We're going to head to the Digital world okaasan."
"Say hello to Tentomon for me,"
"I will okaasan." Koushirou said as he shut his bedroom door, "I got an email from Gennai and he thinks something may be up."
"Tailmon said that there was something out of place in the mountain region," Hikari said, "That's why she called me."
"Well we had better get going," Koushirou said as he brought the digital gate up on his laptop, "Miyako-chan,"
"Digital gate open!"
"Patamon," Takeru called as he was greeted by his Digimon, "It's so good to see you again!"
"Alright, so whose bright idea was it to come to snow country?" Daisuke complained
"Tailmon and I found something that I think you should see," Patamon said.
"Well let's go," Takeru said, "you two lead the way."
"Takeru-san isn't acting like himself today," Iori said.
"I know he was kinda in a daze all day," Daisuke said,
"He didn't eat much at lunch either," Hikari said, "But he says he's fine."
"Hey, what's keeping you," Takeru called, "Hurry up."
"Miyako-chan, where's Ken-chan?" wormon asked.
"He wasn't feeling well today," Hikari said, "And he went home from school early."
"Well here we are," Tailmon said.
"What the hell is that thing?" Daisuke called.
"It looks like a Kuwagamon statue." Hikari said
"Yeah a Kuwagamon statue that's moving!" Daisuke yelled.
"Takeru watch out!" Patamon yelled as Tailmon and Takeru were thrown aside, "Patamon shinkaa…" He called as he tried to evolve, "No it's not working!" /Please someone help Takeru/
"Patamon I thought you couldn't change," V-mon said.
"There must be another Angemon around here," Patamon said as he flew towards Takeru, "Are you alright Takeru?"
"Patamon…" Takeru said, "Yeah I'm alright."
Iori walked over and put his hand to Takeru's forehead, "You're burning up Takeru-san."
"The Kuwagamon is back!" Miyako yelled
"Let's get back to the gate," Koushirou said, "there is nothing we can do right now."
"Takeru-san, are you going to manage?" Iori said
"Yeah Iori-kun," Takeru said
As they ran back to the gate Takeru fell further and further behind, "Takeru this isn't like you," Patamon said, "what was Iori talking about?"
"Nothing Patamon," Takeru said
"Takeru-kun hurry up!" Hikari called, "That Kuwagamon is right behind you!"
Takeru tried to run faster but he stumbled over his own feet and fell. "Takeru!" Patamon cried, "Patamon shinkaa…Angemon!" He turned towards the Kuwagamon, "Heaven's Knuckle!" He watched as his normally effective attack just bounced off the giant bug, "Takeru hurry," He said, "Your friends have already gone back to your world."
As Angemon turned away form the Kuwagamon it flew towards Angemon, its scissor claw ready to strike, "Angemon watch out!" Takeru called. Angemon turned towards the insect Digimon and attacked it with his staff as he was slammed in the side of the head with the scissor claw. The Kuwagamon veered off its course right into the gate and Angemon was thrown to the ground near Takeru.
"Takeru…go," Angemon said as he pulled himself off the ground, "It's too dangerous here."
"But you'll revert," Takeru said, "Please I don't want to lose you again. Your attack didn't do anything. Angemon become Holy Angemon!"
"Takeru…I can't it takes up too much of my energy," Angemon said, "Takeru watch out!"
Takeru turned to see Kuwagamon closing in on him, "Angemon…"
"Angemon chou shinkaa…Holy Angemon. Heaven's Gate!" He watched as the powerful attack sucked the statue in then he regressed back to Angemon, "Takeru we have to go to the next area…I'm sorry I destroyed the gate. Takeru what's wrong?" he asked as Takeru didn't respond, "Takeru!"
"Where's Takeru-kun?" Hikari asked,
"I was the last person to go through," Koushirou said, "And Angemon was trying to fight the Kuwagamon."
"Guys the gate's closed!" Miyako cried, "And the next nearest one is nearly fifty kilometers away."
"That thing must have destroyed the gate," Iori said, "and it's too late to go back. But what worried me the most is that Takeru-kun has a fever."
"I know you're worried but at least Angemon is with him," Hikari said, "And Holy Angemon has an attack that can heal him."
"The only problem with that is even with Takeru there Angemon can't afford to change," Tailmon said, "This is another reason we called you. Although we have the ability to change to our perfect forms, lately it's been sapping most of our energy. Even if Angemon does become Holy Angemon it's possible that the change will kill him."
"Takeru wake up," Angemon said. He could feel heat radiating from Takeru's body, "So this is what Iori was talking about. This happened to Hikari once. If only I had noticed sooner I could have healed him when I was Holy Angemon. I've got such little energy left but Takeru needs me to evolve."
"Don't try it," A female voice spoke, "An evolution in your current condition will kill you."
He raised his staff, "Show yourself," He demanded. A teenaged girl jumped out of a tree followed by another Angemon, "Who are you."
"My name is Saddi Rioux," She said, "I am the leader of the chosen children of Canada and this is my partner."
"You were the one who attacked the Kuwagamon," Angemon said as he dropped his staff and picked Takeru up.
"Well we couldn't just let that thing kill you," Saddi said, "We needed to talk with you. Daemon is back, he was freed from the Dark Ocean. He's the one who is causing all of this." Saddi then stated walking and the two Angemon followed.
"You mean he's escaped," Angemon said as he stumbled a bit.
"Yep he's back," Saddi said as she noted Angemon's condition, "You're in rough shape, why don't you let my Angemon carry your partner. You forced two evolutions in about ten minutes. I'm surprised that you're still in your adult form, why didn't you just revert?"
"I can't revert," Angemon said as he handed Takeru over to the other Angemon.
"Do you not have the ability to revert, or do you not want to revert?" Saddi asked.
"Something isn't letting me revert," Angemon said.
"Come on," Saddi said, "My camp isn't far from here. Let's hurry there's a storm brewing and the last thing you need is to be caught out in a storm."
"Takaishi-san," Iori said as he bowed, "Takeru-san got trapped in the Digital world. As we were going to leave the gate was destroyed and…I'm sorry."
"Don't apologize Hida-kun," Takeru's mother said, "Thank you for telling me about it. Takeru-kun has Patamon so he'll be fine."
"We'll be able to go back tomorrow," Iori said, "Again I apologize."
"Don't worry Hida-kun, Takeru-san will be alright." She said, "Thank you, Hida-kun."
"Well here we are," Saddi said, "Make yourself comfortable, We'll be here for a while."
"You look exhausted," Saddi's Angemon said, "Use my cot tonight." He placed Takeru on the other cot, "Saddi and I will sleep on the floor."
"You're in no condition to argue," Saddi said, "I know you're worried about your partner but there is nothing you can do tonight."
"You don't have to worry," Saddi's Angemon said, "Saddi and I will make sure that nothing happens to your partner."
There was nothing Angemon could say to argue, so he gave in and lay down on the cot and soon fell into an uneasy sleep.
After awhile the remaining Angemon began tending to the other two, "Saddi both of them are feverish,"He said.
"What," Saddi said "Both of them are sick? I knew the boy was sick, but the Digimon is sick?"
"Yes," Angemon said, "Angemon's fever is slight now, but it may get worse. Based on the bruises on his face, he was hit by the scissor claw." He paused, "Those statues are bad news, Saddi. I've noticed that any Digimon that comes into contact with the statues ends up sick."
"Damn," Saddi said, "This isn't good. How long will it last?"
"I don't know," Angemon said,
"He won't…die will he?" Saddi asked.
"No," Angemon said, "it may corrupt his data, but the chances of that occurring are slim."
"What can we do to help?" Saddi asked.
"I'm going to put ice on the back of his neck to try and cool his fever," Angemon said, as he headed for the mouth of the cave, "Try to get some sleep Saddi, I'll be alright on my own."
"Nah, I'm good," Saddi said, "It's still early. Hey Angemon is it really bad out there? We need firewood."
"The storm will hit peak in about thirty minutes," Angemon said.
"That's enough time," Saddi said as she grabbed a pair of goggles,
"Saddi, blizzards are dangerous you shouldn't go out in them," Angemon said,
Saddi scoffed, "You're forgetting where I'm from Angemon," She said, "I'm used to going out in storms ten times worse than this."
Angemon sighed, "Alright, I'll trust your judgment," He said, "But please for my sake and health, don't be gone too long."
"Alright," Saddi laughed, "Just try not to make yourself sick Angemon. We don't need that right now." She put her goggles on, "I'll be back."
Angemon watched as Saddi left the safety of the cave and he sighed, "Please be careful…" Then a soft moan from the other side of the cave caught his attention. He looked over and saw that Takeru was awake and sitting up. "How are you feeling?"
"I've been better," Takeru said, "What happened?"
"You and you're partner were able to defeat the Kuwagamon but both of you were in rough condition. My partner and I will be tending to you here until both of you are at full strength again."
"Wait…what…?" Takeru said, "You mean you're not my partner?"
"No and I am sorry for deceiving you," Angemon said, "Your partner isn't well either."
"What…?" Takeru said, "What happened to him?"
"That thing you fought earlier wasn't a Digimon," Angemon said, "It was a statue that carries some kind of toxin that poisons any Digimon that receives any kind of physical attack."
"Is he going to be alright?" Takeru asked, "I can't lose him again!" He then started coughing.
"Please take it easy," Angemon said as he gently rubbed the boy's back, "You're not well." When Takeru's coughing subsided, "Your partner will be fine. He's under the weather but his condition is far from life threatening. Now please try to get some rest."
"If Angemon's condition gets worse," Takeru muttered as his eyelids began falling, "Please wake me."
Angemon sighed, "Alright," he muttered. He had been around Saddi for a few years and he still didn't understand the stubborn nature of human teenagers.
"Hey, I'm back," Saddi said as she threw a bundle of wood on the cave floor and removed her goggles, "So any change with their conditions?"
"The boy woke, "Angemon said, "But he's fallen back to sleep."
"How is he?" Saddi asked.
"He's more concerned with his partner's health than his own," Angemon said, "And I can't quite understand it."
"Don't worry about it," Saddi said, "Hey any word from my sister."
"No," Angemon said, "Nothing yet. I still can't believe she risked her life to save Garurumon and me."
"Will you stop worrying about that," Saddi said.
"I can't she could have gotten killed," Angemon said.
"But she wasn't," Saddi said, "Would you stop obsessing over it. Holy Angemon-sama was able to intervene and everything turned out fine. So please just drop it." She paused, "Alright how about this, when these two are feeling up to it we'll head there and check up on them."
"Alright," Angemon said softly as Saddi laughed, "What's so funny."
"I thought that your kind was supposed to be calm and level headed." She laughed, "You're a total basket case!"
"Keep it…down…" The two looked over and saw Takeru's Angemon trying to rise.
"Don't sit up," Saddi said, "You're not well."
"What happened…to me…?" He muttered, "I can't...move…"
"That thing that you attacked carried some kind of toxin and it has poisoned you," Saddi's Angemon explained, "We're not sure how long it's going to last. This may also be the reason why you couldn't revert."
"He'll be alright," Saddi said, "Don't worry about that now. He just has a cold; he'll recover in a day or two. Your condition; however is more serious and you shouldn't stay awake much longer." Saddi placed her hand on Angemon's helmet, "Try to save your strength and get some rest." After a few minutes later Angemon once again entered an uneasy sleep. "Hey, are you hungry?" Saddi asked he partner
"Not really," he answered.
"You're worrying again aren't you?"
"No," Angemon answered, "I'm just not hungry."
"Suit yourself," Saddi said, "More for me!" She built a fire and took out a pan and started cooking. Just as she finished her supper her D-Terminal went off. "Saddi here,"
"Sa-kun how goes it?"
"Maddi!" Saddi called "How are you?"
"Just fine," Maddi said, "Are you still in the next area?"
"This weird Digimon attacked the castle," Maddi said, "Holy Angemon-sama was able to put a stop to it after a violent battle but then about thirty minutes later he collapsed. Jijimon said that he was just suffering from exhaustion which would make sense; many of the injuries that Holy Angemon-sama had received during last week's battle had not healed completely. But it's been two days and Holy Angemon-sama has yet to regain consciousness. How soon can you get here? Jijimon is about flip and everyone else is getting worried."
"I don't know," Saddi said, "There's a raging blizzard out here and you know how Angemon gets. Anyway we have a sick Digimon on our hands and his partner isn't well either."
"I'll see if they can send someone for you," Maddi said, "I'll see you then, Jijimon is calling me, see you later Saddi!"
"So you're Saddi,"
"Oh, you're awake," Saddi said, "How are you feeling?"
"Better," Takeru said
"Do you need anything?" Saddi asked.
"I'm kinda hungry," Takeru said he looked over at Angemon, "How is he?"
"He's stable for now," Saddi's Angemon said, "But we don't have the necessary methods to treat him here." He paused to put more snow on the back of Angemon's neck, "We have connections at Holy Angel Castle and they'll send someone for us tomorrow." He looked at Saddi, "I'm going to get some sleep, try to sleep soon Saddi."
"It's still early," Saddi said, "But you like to sleep early so good night."
"But Angemon will be alright won't he?" Takeru asked.
Saddi sighed and handed a bowl of ramen to Takeru, "Yeah they have the best medical staff in the digital world." She said, "I'm sorry about the food, it's not much I'm running low on supplies."
"No it's fine," Takeru said, "So you're one of the chosen children?"
"Yeah one of the two from Quebec, Canada," Saddi said as she took her own bowl of ramen, "My sister is the other. I was the one who led Tailmon to this place. I needed to talk to your group; Daemon is once again threatening the Digital world."
"I thought we sealed him in the Dark Ocean," Takeru said,
"That's what we thought too," Saddi said, "But he was somehow released and is trying to take over the digital and human world alike."
"How is he going to do that?" Takeru asked.
"By killing the one in charge of the gate," Saddi said.
"The one in charge of the gate," Takeru said, "There's a Digimon in charge of the digital gate?"
Before Saddi could answer her D-terminal went off again, "Saddi here,"
"Holy Angemon-sama!" Saddi exclaimed waking the two sleeping Digimon, "I heard about what happened, are you sure you're alright to be up and about?"
"I sent Garudamon and your sister out to get you," he muttered
"What tonight?" Saddi asked, "But the blizzard, are you trying to worry my partner to death?"
"Saddi," Lord Holy Angemon said, "I fear I don't have much time left, if anyone can figure out what wrong with me it's you."
"Please…you need to…help me…"
"Holy Angemon-sama," Saddi called, "Speak to me…Holy Angemon-sama!"
"So this is what he was up to," Jijimon said,
"Hello Saddi," He said, "I don't know what I am going to do with him. I told him that he was too weak to be up and about but he wouldn't listen."
"Jijimon I'm going to let you go," Saddi said, "I wasn't expecting to have to pack up camp tonight, but he's already sent for an escort."
"Alright," Jijimon said, "I have to get him back to the medical ward, he's collapsed again. Good luck braving the blizzard Saddi, see you soon."
"Jijimon wait," Saddi called, "Is he going to be alright?"
"It's hard to say for sure," Jijimon said, "Every time I think he's out of the woods he relapses. He has a lot of trust in you Saddi and please don't let him down, you may be the only hope he has left."
"Alright, if he wakes tell him that I'll do my best to help him," Saddi said, "I'll talk to you later, Jijimon."
"Thank you Saddi," Jijimon said before the transmission cut out.
"Angemon are you awake?"
"I am now," he answered,
"Start packing up," She said, "We're leaving tonight."
"Why tonight?" Angemon said, "Does Holy Angemon-sama not know that there is a raging blizzard in this area?"
"He called us out tonight because he's running out of time," Saddi said as she started packing, "He was also attacked by one of the statues and in his weakened state he was nearly overcome."
"Weakened state?" Angemon asked as he began packing the camp.
"The injuries he received when he rescued us from MetalPhantomon had not healed when he went into battle," Saddi said, "From what my sister told me the battle was violent but brief. He was left standing at the end of the battle but shortly after he collapsed from what seemed like exhaustion."
"We have got to get down to the bottom of this," Angemon exclaimed causing Takeru's Angemon to be rudely awoken for the third time that night, "If those statues could render Holy Angemon-sama unconscious then the rest of the Digimon in this world don't stand much of a chance."
"Keep it down, we've woken him again" Saddi said, "I understand the nature of the threat which is why I want to join forces with the other chosen children from Japan."
"But why must we go tonight?" Angemon asked.
"Because if we don't Daemon's mission will be fulfilled," Saddi said, "Do you really want that to happen?"
"Hold on a second," Takeru said, "The Digimon you're talking about, Holy Angemon-sama, is the one in charge of the digital gate?"
"Yes," Saddi's Angemon replied, "He monitors the gate along with Gennai and several others however he is the main gatekeeper. If he falls, there will not be anyone strong enough to protect the gate from Daemon and he will be able to access the gate with ease."
"I still don't quite understand," Takeru said.
"Put it this way," Saddi said, "Every time the digital gate is accessed Holy Angemon-sama is the one who makes sure the person trying to enter the digital world won't be a threat. If he finds a possible threat he'll reject their access to the world and refuse to open the gate." Saddi paused, "And if someone forces their way in he'll send them to an alternate dimension then send them back to the world in which they came from. The gate to this world doesn't only lead to the real world; there are many other dimensions out there."
"So if he gets killed, they'll be no one to open the digital gate?" Takeru asked.
"Exactly," Saddi said, "If that should happen, this world will be permanently sealed until Holy Angemon-sama's data is reconfigured and he reaches his perfect form again. That could take up to ten years to happen, which is why we need to keep that from happening."
"Sa-kun, are you ready to go?"
"Maddi!" Saddi called, "Garurumon!"
"Hey you two it's been a few days," Maddi said, "Hey who are you?" She said as she eyed Takeru.
"I'm Takaishi Takeru," Takeru said, "I'm one of the chosen children from Japan."
"I'm Sa-kun's sister Rioux Maddi," She said, "Sa-kun told me you and your partner got into some trouble, how are you holding up?"
Takeru sighed, "Better than my partner is," He said quietly, "I think my fever has broken, but Angemon…"
"Hey don't worry," Maddi said, "He'll be alright."
"I know but…this is at least the second time he's put himself in grave danger trying to protect me." Takeru said, "And the first time he was reconfigured…I don't want that to happen again!"
"It's not going to happen again," Maddi said, "Angemon is strong, he'll pull through but he needs you to be strong for him. You need to be his strength and he'll be okay." Takeru nodded. "Are you comfortable riding Garurumon with me?"
"Yeah my older brother has a Garurumon," Takeru said, "And anyway I've been through some pretty crazy adventures here when I was younger."
"Maddi we're ready," Saddi said, "We just need to find a way to get him to Garudamon."
"This cave is big enough," Garudamon said as he walked into the cave. He then gently picked the unconscious angelic digimon up, "We should get going."
"Alright," Saddi said as she climbed on Garudamon's shoulder, "Let's go."
Okay so what do you think? This is my first attempt so please be nice. Well read and review. In a week my screen name will change to ExcaliburShark7 so if you enjoyed my story look for that name.
