Last Time: Davis and ExVeemon managed to get backstage and begin their search for tickets. But even after Carson Daly offered to get them, the tickets never came and it was too late. Then things got better when Davis saw ExVeemon mingling with…U2's Bono. Davis got a whole new idea…but what he doesn't know is that Kari's ALREADY on her way to the concert…with TK.


The Rock Show: Part 6


Davis stepped out of U2's dressing room with a huge smile on his face. "Thank you, Bono! I'll never forget this! I owe you big time!"

After coming out of the ticket hunt a dismal failure, Davis had the best way to make up for it. He held in his hand something Kari would just adore more than anything. And in his other hand…he held something for himself. He held a picture of himself standing with Bono. It was truly something Davis would cherish.

But now was the time to go find Kari. She would probably be at home since she likely didn't end up going to the concert. Besides, he had already made MORE of a spectacle of himself than he intended. So it was time to leave. But there was one problem.

"Ex…er…Blue Mon Group?"

ExVeemon was gone. The huge champion Digimon had disappeared without a trace. Now Davis was in trouble. Despite his large size, ExVeemon could be anywhere. And now Davis had the unenviable task of finding him.


The crowd was about as big, if not bigger, than TK expected. And so far all the bands had been beyond awesome. TK was having a great time and so was Kari. Being in the front row was the best thing in the world. There was just one thing bothering TK.

"Kari…how did you GET these great seats?"

Kari turned and smiled. "I won them on the radio, of course. I was caller 100 and I got the last set of tickets. I got on the phone as soon as I heard 'First Date' by Blink 182."

TK chuckled. "Why didn't *I* think of that?"

"Because you were too busy bugging Matt," Kari grinned.

TK shrugged. "That…might have had something to do with it."

"I guess he REALLY didn't want to give them up."

TK looked over towards another part of the packed arena. "And I think I see why."

TK and Kari both looked over to see that Matt was holding Sora in his arms. They both looked like they were having a great time.

"Wonder what Tai would think of this?" Kari muttered.

As if on cue, some guy in a hat and sunglasses started walking right by Matt and Sora. And the guy 'accidentally' spilled his soda all over Matt. Before Matt could even react, the guy was already walking away. But Kari stepped in front of the guy. TK didn't know what to make of it, but Kari looked like she recognized him. She reached over and took off the hat…allowing a huge set of hair to just puff up.

"Tai?!"

Tai Kamiya tried to duck in the crowd. "Shh! I don't want them to know I'm here. You never saw me!"

With that, Tai disappeared into the vast crowd. TK and Kari both sweatdropped.

"That…was weird," TK noted. "And I thought Tai was cool with Matt and Sora being together."

"What can POSSIBLY make me forget seeing THAT?" Kari asked.

Kari got her answer in a matter of seconds.

"And now ladies and gentlemen…U2!"

Kari looked over at the stage and her face brightened. This looked to be what she was waiting for. It was time for U2 to perform. And when they all came out, led by lead singer Bono, they started playing the chords of a familiar hit.

"My favorite song…" Kari said breathlessly.

The heart is a bloom

Shoots up through the stony ground

There's no room

No space to rent in this town

You're out of luck

And the reason that you had to care

The traffic is stuck

And you're not moving anywhere

You'd thought you found a friend

To take you out of this place

Someone you could lend a hand

In return for grace

TK saw the happy look on Kari's face as she was seeing her favorite song performed live. And that's when TK thought of something. The atmosphere couldn't have been any better. It was truly a special night. There wouldn't have been a better time…

…to ask Kari to be his girlfriend.

It's a beautiful day

Sky falls, you feel like

It's a beautiful day

Don't let it get away

TK saw this as a wonderful opportunity, so he tried to make the best of it. He inched closer…and put his arms around Kari's waist. And Kari…leaned back on TK's shoulder.

You're on the road

But you've got no destination

You're in the mud

In the maze of her imagination

You love this town

Even if that doesn't ring true

You've been all over

And it's been all over you

With Kari leaning on his shoulder, he was starting to feel like it would be the best night of his life. And the song being played couldn't have been more apropos.

It's a beautiful day

Don't let it get away

It's a beautiful day

Touch me

Take me to that other place

Teach me

I know I'm not a hopeless cause

TK was ready to pop that question to Kari. "Kari…can I ask you…?"

Kari immediately loosened herself from TK's grip and pointed on the stage. "Is that…?!"

TK suddenly saw what Kari was seeing…and he couldn't believe it.

See the world in green and blue

See China right in front of you

See the canyons broken by cloud

See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out

See the Bedouin fires at night

See the oil fields at first light

And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth

After the flood all the colors came out

TK's jaw had dropped open and so had Kari's. The people were all cheering…because they thought what was on the stage was part of the show. But TK and Kari knew better. What made things more awkward was that U2 had no idea what was behind them.

It was ExVeemon…in a really bad rock star disguise.

It was a beautiful day

Don't let it get away

Beautiful day

Touch me

Take me to that other place

Re-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-each me

I know I'm not a hopeless case

What you don't have you don't need it now

What you don't feel you can feel it somehow

What you don't have you don't need it now

Don't need it now

Was a beautiful day

As Bono finished the final words, TK and Kari couldn't bear to look…as the lead singer of U2 was about to turn around. But to TK and Kari's surprise…when he turned around…he calmly put his hand on ExVeemon's back (since he couldn't reach his shoulder).

"Thank you, Odaiba!" Bono yelled, acknowledging the crowd. "And how about a round for this new sensation, Blue Mon Group!"

"Blue Mon Group?!" TK and Kari repeated dryly.

TK and Kari exchanged knowing glances. They knew that if ExVeemon was here…then so was…

…Davis. And as if on cue, Davis ran out onto the stage, undoubtedly to retrieve ExVeemon. And to TK and Kari's shock, he was ALSO in disguise. But the unfortunate thing for the goggle boy was that he didn't know he stepped out in front of a live crowd. He turned to face the roaring crowd…and waved bashfully. Davis looked like a total fish out of water. Rather than risk anymore embarrassment, Davis just grabbed ExVeemon by the hand and led him offstage.

"How did he…?" Kari started slowly. But then she stopped…and started giggling. "This is unbelievable…even for Davis." Kari started leading TK out by the hand. "Come on, TK. Let's see if we can find him."

TK just nodded and went along. But he couldn't believe it. There wouldn't have been any better time. The night's sky, the harmonious concert setting, the middle of Kari's favorite song all made it SUCH a good time. And the opportunity was now gone…thanks to Davis.

TK sighed deeply. He felt like he was back where he started.


Davis led ExVeemon out to the bushes around the backstage area. "What's wrong with you? Almost 100,000 people saw you!"

"Isn't it great?" ExVeemon grinned. "Now THAT'S publicity!"

Davis felt like a teakettle about to burst. "YOU'RE…NOT…A ROCK STAR!"

"Oh I see," ExVeemon pouted. "More critics trying to hold me down. Well I can take a hint. I think Blue Mon Group's ready to call it quits and retire. It's a shame, though. I'll never get that platinum album like I wanted. Oh well. It was nice to be a rock star, even if it was for a few hours."

With that, ExVeemon went back to his in-training form, DemiVeemon. The clothes ExVeemon was wearing all flopped to the ground and DemiVeemon jumped on top of Davis' head. Davis shrugged and stepped out of the bushes, thinking no one would notice. But as Davis stepped out, he saw two friends running over to him.

"Davis!"

Much to Davis' shock…he saw Kari and TK. Davis thought they were both home.

"What are you guys doing here?" Davis asked.

"I was about to ask you the same question," Kari shot back. "Expect how did you get ON STAGE?!"

Davis sweatdropped. "Well…it's a pretty long story…"

Kari took the two boys' hands. "You can tell me on the way. You can both walk me home."

Kari happily led Davis and TK forward while the two boys exchanged glances. Obviously neither one had expected the other to be there.


Davis let everything sink into him as he walked Kari home. "So…you're telling me that I went to all the trouble to sneak in backstage and you already HAD tickets?"

Kari nodded. "I'm sorry if it feels like you wasted your time, Davis. But hey…you got a lifelong memory. I don't think anyone can ever forget being on that worldwide stage…with U2!"

"It wasn't a total waste of time," Davis said cheerfully. "Because…I have something for you, Kari."

Kari stopped in her tracks as she reached her front door. TK's curiosity was also peaked. Davis reached into his jacket…and pulled out…an autographed copy of U2's latest album…and a large poster of the band. Kari took the poster in her hand and opened it up…noticing there was some writing on it.

"To my biggest fan across the Pacific. This is for you, Kari Kamiya. –Bono!"

Kari threw her arms around Davis. "Davis, I love it! Thank you SO much!"

Davis had a sense of satisfaction as he returned Kari's hug. He had been through a lot over these past few days, but this moment made it all worth it. Kari even leaned over and gave Davis a kiss on the cheek…leaving the goggle boy blushing.

Of course, it wasn't exactly exclusive, as Davis soon found out. Because Kari walked over to TK and gave him a kiss on the cheek, too.

"I guess this really WAS a special night," Kari smiled. "But now it's over and I really should get to bed. Thanks, guys. I'll see you later."

Kari walked into her door and closed it. Davis and TK once again exchanged glances…that were slowly becoming glares.

"I guess I'm one-up on you, TL," Davis grinned.

TK just shook his head. "You know, Kari forgot something very important just now."

"What's that?" Davis asked curiously.

TK gave Davis his answer. He pushed him right into…

…Kari's rosebush.

"YEOWWWWWWW!!!"

Davis jumped out of the rosebush and shot TK a death glare as he picked thorns out of his butt.

"Hey…it's been a long time, right?" TK grinned. "Pushing you into the rosebush has become like a tradition."

"I don't know about tradition, but you probably pushed me in because Kari kissed me first!"

TK shook his head and pushed Davis back into the rosebush.

"YEOWWWWWW!!! STOP THAT!!!"

"Ok, ok," TK chuckled as he pulled Davis out of the rosebush. "Look, it's pretty late. Let's just get home. And Davis…that's a really nice thing you did for Kari."

Davis smiled. "Thanks, TK."

Davis and TK started to walk down the street, with the night having ended.

TK muttered softly under his breath. "She probably likes you better anyway."

Davis blinked. "Huh? Did you say something, TK?"

TK shrugged. "Oh…nothing. Let's just go home."


As Kari got ready for bed, she hung her new poster on her wall. She really appreciated what Davis did for her and she would never forget. Everything about this night was just wonderful and she would never forget it. But…there was one thing she did regret.

There was something she really wanted to say and she was about to say something until she made the awkward discovery of ExVeemon on stage. Kari knew she wouldn't be able to get any sleep on this night…unless she did something.

Kari walked up to her phone…and dialed that number.

"Hello?"

"TK?"

"Kari? It's two in the morning. Is something wrong?"

"TK……I wanted to tell you I had a lot of fun tonight."

"Oh……I had fun, too."

"And……I haven't been totally honest with you. TK…there WAS a reason I wanted to take you to the concert. There's…something I want to ask you."

"Um…ok, what is it?"

After so many years, Kari couldn't believe it had come to this. It was the moment she didn't think would come for a long time. But now…Kari felt it was time. And there would be no better night.

"TK…………………will you be my boyfriend?"

Silence.

It could have been mistaken for a dead phone line. Kari was starting to wonder if she had made a mistake by asking that question. But Kari couldn't delay this. She was finally ready.

"Y-Y-You really mean it? You want me to be your boyfriend?"

"That's right, TK."

"Well……………………OF COURSE!! Kari…you know how I feel about you. I'd love it if I could be your be boyfriend!"

Kari was blushing a deep shade of red. "T-That's great! Um…then…you wanna go out…next Friday?"

"I'd love to! We'll talk about it in the morning."

"Ok, good night…sweetie."

Kari blushed as she called TK that. As she hung up the phone, she couldn't believe she really went through with it. She actually had a boyfriend now. And she couldn't have asked for a better guy.

On this night…Kari felt like the happiest girl in the world.


THE END


Author's Note: So if TK and Kari are together now…when does Davis find out? And how does he take it? There's another story brewing where you'll all get the answer.
