And then . . .

Hayato, Yuuki and their digimon set out to find water and soon they had found a stream not far from the group's resting spot.

As they started back towards the camp, Hayato noticed Yuuki staring at him. It wasn't the first stare Hayato had gotten since the group had arrived, but it was beginning to annoy him, "What?"

"What 'what'?"

"Why am I a sudden center of interest?"

". . . Er, 'center of interest' is a bit of an overstatement."

"Well, whatever it is, what's got everybody staring at me like I'm from Mars?"

"Well, stop acting weird."

"I'm not acting weird."

"You're totally acting weird, you're the lazy, irresponsible, spoiled guy, but since we got here," Yuuki looked up at the sky and sighed, "I don't know, you're just different. I mean, Yasu's kinda got everything under control, but, still, we've all kinda gotten into the habit of looking to you to be the responsible one a lot more then we used to. I'm trying to figure out if this is a good thing or a bad thing but I can't decide."

"I don't follow."

"I'm afraid that once we get back to our world you'll go back to being you and we'll be in the bad habit of trusting you."

"Oh, thanks," growled Hayato, sarcastically, "That's a wonderful way to tell someone what you think of them."

"Hey, don't give me that you've known what I think of you since the day Hanako introduced us!"

Hayato started to defend himself but, suddenly, their digivices let out a loud alarm. The screens flashed red and white with a large black arrow pointing towards the camp.

"What is going on!" exclaimed Yuuki.

"I don't know," responded Gaomon, who was, surprisingly, calm, given the situation, "But we better hurry back, the others could be in trouble."

Gaomon leaped off towards the camp and the other three followed quickly.
