Here is a new story.
This is NOT a sequel to the sole digidestined. i'm still debating whether or not i should write the sequel.
I do not own digimon.
The Forgotten Past
Part 1: The Digidestined of Hope
Chapter 1: Valentine's Day
"TEEEEEEKAAAYYYYYYYYYY!" I turned around and looked at the figure running towards me. The sun was reflecting off of his goggles that Tai Kamiya had given him.
"Hey Davis what's up?"
He panted holding his knees. "One….sec…."
I sighed tugging at my trademark fishermen hat.
"Are you going?" He asked still panting.
"What do you mean to what?
"I mean to what?"
'The Valentine's dance! The most important thing to guys our age!"
I couldn't help but laugh. It was hilarious to me. Davis stared at me obviously confused.
"What's so funny?"
"You came running down all this way just to ask me if I was going to a stupid dance. Why? You wanna ask me out?" I continued laughing.
"Well I guess that answers my question…"
At that moment the rest of the second generation digidestined minus Ken came by and joined the conversation.
"Hey guys, how are you doing?" asked Yolie.
"Nothing really, T.K here isn't going to the Valentine's dance though."
"Really, don't you have like a million girls asking you to the dance?" Asked Cody.
"I'm not really interested, besides I'll be busy."
"With what?" Asked Davis.
"I'm taking Kari out on a date."
"WHAT?" They all said.
Kari started to laugh catching on to the joke.
"Oh yea, I didn't tell you guys, me and T.K are going to this amazing restaurant."
"And afterwards we're going to some fair in the park and make out in the Ferris wheel." I laughed.
At this time the others caught on to the joke.
"For a second I thought you were serious…" Said Davis putting his arm around Kari.
"Dating Kari would be like dating a guy in a dress, it just wouldn't be fair…" I laughed.
"Oh yea and dating a live-action Barbie doll is any better…" She retorted.
We both laughed. "Don't worry Davis, Kari is only my friend, sadly she's your girlfriend, I don't know how you put up with her. Anyway, I gotta leave, peace out!' I said walking away.
"Always leaving with the last word.." I heard Kari mumble.
When I finally got back home I saw my mom was working on her computer.
"Work still getting to you?"
"Actually no T.K…" She said blushing a little.
"I have a date."
"Really? That's great! With who?"
"Some guy I met at work, he's really cute!"
I sweat dropped. "I didn't need to know that."
"Well, the date is tomorrow on Valentine's day, how romantic. I feel like its been forever since I've had a date. By the way, don't you have a dance tomorrow?"
"One, yea its been forever since you've had a date, and two, yea its tomorrow, but I'm not going."
"Why not? I've heard from Kari plenty of times about how many girls like you."
"Shouldn't you be telling me I should study more and not think about girls?"
My mom laughed. "I only wish your brother thought the same way when he was your age."
I shook my head and walked into my room, Patamon was on my bed still sleeping.
I walked over to him and started to shake him awake.
"Hey sleepyhead, resting up for tomorrow?"
I laughed. Patamon was up all night adding the final touches to his plan that we would execute tomorrow. Since I was free tomorrow, I was able to help my digimon partner, it would be perfect.
I heard a ringing in the living room and my mom picked up the phone.
"T.K, its for you, its Cody!"
I walked into my living room and took the phone from my mom.
"Hey Cody what's up?"
"Hey T.K, I was wondering if I could come over later, I have this French Essay I have to do and seeing as you're half French…"
"No problem, come over whenever you want."
"Thanks T.K, I'll be over in an hour! Bye."
We both hung up the phone. "Hey mom what's there to eat?..."
"You know Cody, when you said essay I thought maybe one or two pages, not five."
"Sorry T.K..I should've elaborated more."
I smiled. "Its not a problem, I was only kidding. Besides, you can do my math homework."
He laughed. "Sure, right after you get a girlfriend."
We both laughed.
"You know T.K, French is a romantic language, you could probably get any girl you wanted just by saying a few French words."
"Yea I guess."
"You're really not that interested in the opposite sex are you?"
"Aren't you too young to be interested?"
"What can I say, I matured fast." He said shrugging his shoulders and smiling. "But seriously, why won't you? Don't you want a relationship?"
"Its not that I'm not interested in girls, I am, but I have other priorities. There's school, basketball, and the digital world…"
"The digital world isn't in trouble anymore though."
"I know, but it never hurts to check once in a while. You never know."
"Well besides that, why don't you just take a girl to the dance."
"I told you guys, I'm busy."
"Taking Kari out on a date?"
I smirked. "No, I'm not taking her out, I just have other plans."
"What is it then?"
"You'll find out soon enough."
"Fair enough. But there's one thing that's always bothered me T.K. Its a little personal."
"Its about Kari. Don't you feel even a little jealous she's going out with Davis?"
I chuckled a little. "What is it with everyone asking about how I feel about Kari? First it was Matt, then Mimi, Tai, Sora, now you."
"Well we thought you two would end up together, it seemed that way. You were always trying to protect her."
"Well I guess if you see it that way. But Kari is only my best friend, and the way I see it, I'll always protect her, and all of you guys without a moment's hesitation. All I feel about Kari is love as a friend."
"Something tells me you're not just here about French homework."
Cody looked at me funny and scratched the back of his head. "Well, it was actually Matt. He asked me to talk to you, to see if you were just hiding your feelings, If you were bottling up something."
I laughed. "You guys are just too much. Listen, If I liked Kari that way, I would've told her a long time ago. But both her and I know what our boundaries are. It just seems everyone else wants to break those boundaries. I'm happy for Davis and Kari, I really am."
"So nothing would change that?.."
"Come on Cody.."
"Sorry Matt wanted me to ask that question.
"What is his deal? He probably wants me to marry Kari so he and Tai could be brothers."
We both laughed.
"Well I suppose I should get going. Thanks for all your help! And I'll make sure to tell Matt you're not dying on the inside."
I laughed and walked Cody to the door. As he was about to leave he turned around and said, "I'm sure whatever girl you end up with will be really lucky to have you."
"That won't happen for a looooonnnggggg time." I said.
Cody smiled and walked away.
Why does everyone want a relationship anyway?...
"You ready Gatomon?"
"What could she possibly be doing taking so long?..."
Gatomon walked out of the bathroom door her fur all cleaned and nails trimmed. She actually looked very pretty. Not that she isn't."
"So why are you going to T.K's?" I asked.
"I told you, Patamon and I are going out in the digital world, and we're going to use T.K's computer to go."
"And why couldn't they come here?"
"So they wouldn't disturb you getting ready for the dance."
"And what makes them think I would take so long? I've been waiting for you!" I said with triumph.
"Kari would you really want to walk around the house in a towel with T.K at your home?..."
My cheeks turned very red. "Be..Be quiet Gatomon!"
We both started to laugh.
"We got everything together T.K?"
"Yup, everything is in the basket."
"Thanks for doing this T.K."
"No need for thanks Patamon, you're my best friend. Besides I wasn't busy."
"If I knew about the dance beforehand I would've never asked."
"Hey its alright buddy, now how do I look?"
"Like you're ready for a dance, not a waiter's job."
We both laughed. Then the doorbell rang. "That must be them."
I went to go answer the door and sure enough stood Kari with Gatomon by her side.
"Hey Kari, you look really beautiful." I smiled.
She blushed a little. "So much for a guy in a dress huh?" Kari was dressed in a red and pink one piece dress and went down to her knees. She wore nice red heels and even wore light pink lipstick and had a red clip in her hair.
"I'm serious you look wonderful, Davis is gonna love it."
She smiled. "Thanks T.K. Oh my God I just realized you're wearing a tux, are you going to the dance?"
"Nope I'm going with Patamon and Gatomon."
"In a tux?"
"Yep, Gatomon will tell you all the details when she sees you tomorrow morning." I winked at her.
"What's that suppose to mean T.K?" I said in a jokingly angry tone.
"Nothing nothing ma'am. Don't you have to meet up with Davis?"
"Oh my God you're right. Gatomon I'll pick you up after the dance, bye guys have fun!" She said as she ran down the hallway.
"Looks like she's gonna be late." I laughed.
I closed the door and we walked into my bedroom. "Everyone ready?""
"Yep." Replied Gatomon and Patamon.
"Right then, Digiport open!"
About an hour into the dance Yolie and Ken, Cody and Sakura and Davis and me were dancing on the floor. They were all fast songs, they were just making us tired so we could have really nice and romantic slow dances. The funny part was, it was working.
When the first slow dance begun, I loosely hung on to Davis because I was so tired. But I still kept my composure.
"Someone needs a nap." Smirked Davis.
"We have been dancing for an hour now, give me a break." I laughed.
"Well we still got a few hours before the dance ends, and I don't intend to waste any time today."
"Well then you're going to have a very angry girlfriend if I don't get a break."
"Alright alright, you win. How about a break after this song?"
"Your drinks madam, monsieur." I said pouring the drink down their wine glasses. It wasn't actually wine, it was soda, but wine glasses make everything fancier.
This was our plan, Patamon wanted to have a romantic dinner with Gatomon under the stars on a full moon on a nice summer night in the digital world.
"Thank you T.K, that'll be all." Said Patamon.
Patamon touched his wine glass in a certain way, the signal, that was for me to leave them alone for the rest of the night. I had been serving them for the past 2 hours, I was exhausted. I walked through a small forest and when an opening showed there was a cliff. Beyond the cliff you could see the giant moon and thousands of stars filled the sky.
I sat at the edge of the cliff and loosened my bow tie. I got lost in my thoughts that is until I heard some rustling in the buses behind me. I turned around and saw….
"I'm so tired from that dance…." I complained as Davis held me close by. All the other digidestined left taking their respective dates home.
"And I still have to get Gatomon from the digital world…"
"I'll go with you, I don't want you to go alone."
"No you should get home, its late, and besides I'll meet T.K and the others pretty quick."
"Are you sure? Its not a problem."
I smiled and kissed him on the cheek.
"Yes I'm sure, you can take me home though." I smiled.
"That's never a problem." Davis smiled.
The walk home took about 10 minutes, Davis walked me to my apartment door.
He held my hands and looked at me straight in the eyes.
"You looked really beautiful tonight Kari, you never seize to amaze me."
I blushed. "Thanks Davis. You looked very handsome in your tuxedo."
He smiled back at me. We looked at each other's eyes and our heads were tilting closer and closer. My lips were a few inches away from his.
Is thing going to be my first kiss?...
A few centimeters apart and suddenly the door flies open. At the door stood Tai Kamiya, my older brother who ruined my first kiss.
"What are you doing Tai?" I asked a little annoyed.
"I know what you were up to, you've only been dating for a month, you're not gonna kiss him yet."
"Only for a month? That's a long time!"
"You want me to tell mom what you were doing?"
"No! NO! Sorry…"
"Good now come on inside." I turned back to Davis, "Sorry Davis."
"Its not a problem, there's always next time."
"You wish." Said Tai.
I walked into my room half tired and half annoyed of Tai. I crashed onto my bed still awake and tired.
"I have to get Gatomon…"
I struggled out of my bed and changed out of my dress. I changed into my pajamas and put some tennis shoes on.
"It shouldn't be that long of a walk…"
I grabbed my D-3.
I tracked T.K's digivice and found the nearest digi-port I could find.
The light flashed and I went through data stream. On the other end I landed in a bunch of bushes.
I got up and dusted the dirt off of my body and walked forward through some bushes until I could see an opening. The view was beautiful. There were thousands of stars that filled the sky, there was a giant full moon beyond the cliff. And then I noticed a pair of blue eyes looking at my direction.
"This is one hell of a spot T.K. How'd you and Patamon find it?"
A sly smile came on his face. "We're just cool like that."
"Oh please." I laughed.
He smiled back at me. He moved over a little and patted his hand on the floor next to him.
"Come sit with me."
I nodded and came over to sit next to him.
'So this is where you took Gatomon?"
"Yep, there past the forest there, probably just finished eating and are dancing or something. Oh man, speaking of which!"
T.K ran over to where his nag was lying and took out a small stereo. He went into the forest and started to play the music. He walked out and took a breath of relief. He came over and sat down next to me.
"I'm playing waiter." He laughed.
I smiled. "You're a good friend."
"I know, I'm the best there is." T.K said jokingly.
I hit him playfully on the arm. "Watch yourself mister, you're not that good."
"At least I don't wear my pajamas to the digital world."
"I thought it'd be a short walk!"
"Well you're gonna have to wait at least an hour, they're dancing now."
I sighed. "Oh man, I'm so tired." I said putting my head on his shoulder.
"I'm sure you are, how was the dance?"
"It was good, we had a lot of fun. You should've come T.K. Everyone missed you."
"Everyone meaning you and the others, or every girl there?" He said chuckling.
"I take that back." I laughed. "But really you should've gotten yourself a date, or at least a dance."
"Well…Valentine's Day doesn't end for another 20 minutes…" He said smiling.
I caught on to what he was saying. "But I'm wearing pajamas!"
"What's that between best friends?" He said getting up and putting his hand out.
I smiled and took his hand.
The music that was playing reached us here and we danced under the stars and the full moon. It was a nice calming feeling dancing with your best friend. There was no tension, or awkwardness, it was in its own sort of way romantic.
I looked up at him and stared in his deep ocean blue eyes. They were glistening off of the moon's light, enhancing his colors. I felt a little attracted to T.K at that moment. He was a really handsome guy, he could make any girl extremely happy or extremely sad. He caught my soul within his eyes and smiled back at me.
"Something on my face?" He asked smiling.
"No, I was looking at your eyes."
"I don't know if you know, but you have really nice eyes T.K"
"Kari Kamiya giving me a compliment? It must be the end of the world."
I laughed. "I'm serious doofus. You could make any girl happy, I question all the time why you won't get a nice girlfriend. You reject every girl."
He sighed. "Come on Kari, do we have to talk about this?"
"Yes, I want to know why my best friend rather be alone than with a special person that he loves!"
"We're only 15 Kari." He laughed.
"Still, you should at least attempt to go on a date."
"I guess, but I'm not really interested in anyone."
"Well what do you like in a girl?"
"Well, someone whose nice, smart, pretty, a great smile, and someone who can understand me without me saying anything. Someone who could make me smile whenever I need to. Someone like…..you Kari."
"Wh…what?" I said surprised.
He laughed. "Well you do, do those things. You're my best friend, besides I want a girl who could do that for me, besides you." He laughed.
I smiled a little. "You know even though I have Davis, I wouldn't mind having a loser boyfriend whose like you."
"I know, who could resist me?"
"Thanks for ruining the moment." I joked.
"Its your parents isn't it?" I asked.
He clutched to my waist a little harder. "You read me like a book."
"You're afraid you'll end up like them?"
He stayed silent. I could feel the heat from his body even leaving. T.K didn't like to talk about the divorce of his parents. I knew it affected him and why he didn't have any relationship. Or for that matter even want one. No one knew this except for me and Matt.
"I'm sorry, I shouldn't have mentioned them."
He smiled. "Its okay Kari."
We danced there for a few more minutes just enjoying each other's company.
"Did I say you look good in a tux?"
"Well you do."
"Thank You Kari, and you look extravagant in your pajamas."
"You heard that?"
T.K looked to the forest and just stared.
He whispered to me. "Kari do you have your D-3?"
"Yea…but I left my D-Terminal at home…"
Suddenly a giant Kuwagamon started to come out of the forest.
T.K grabbed my shoulders.
"GO FIND PATAMON I'LL DISTRACT HIM! GO NOW!"
He didn't even give me time to talk back as he pushed me towards the direction where Patamon and Gatomon were. T.K picked up a rock and threw it at the Kuwagamon.
"HEY OVER HERE! CAN'T CATCH ME!"
The Kuwagamon looked at T.K and started to chase after him.
I wasted no time and started to run through the forest. In about a minute I found Gatomon and Patamon, they were already coming in my direction.
"Kari what are you doing here?"
"No time, T.K needs help!"
We immediately ran back to where T.K and I were, but he was gone.
"Which way did he go?" I thought.
Patamon flew into the air.
"That way!" Pointed Patamon.
He saw a pair of red wings down the distance.
We ran towards that direction through the small forest and we finally found an opening.
We saw T.K backed against a cliff and the Kuwagamon slowly moving towards T.K.
"T.K!" Patamon yelled.
T.K wasted no time. "DIGI-ARMOR ENERGIZE!"
"Patamon armor digivolve to….Pegasusmon!"
The attack landed on Kuwagamon and the cliff loosening the rocks a little. The Kuwagamon shouted in pain and flew away.
I ran over to T.K, he was sweating. He looked at me and laughed a little. "That was close."
"Oh no…." Said Gatomon. We looked above us and there were 5 Kuwagamon now.
"Looks like he called backup…" said Gatomon.
The Kuwagamon evaded the attack and started after Pegasusmon.
"Kari make me digivolve!"
"I can't I don't have my D-Terminal…"
"Then get out of here." T.K said.
I looked at him. "You're putting yourself in danger, now go!"
I didn't want to leave, I had to stay with my friend.
Everything after that was a blur. T.K pushed me down and Pegasusmon crashed into T.K knocking him over the cliff.
Pegasusmon de-digivolved into Patamon. He was all bruised up. He lay there unconscious. Me and Gatomon looked at the 5 Kuwagamon that flew over us.
"Just stay behind me Kari…"
The attacks went straight into a Kuwagamon and he was deleted into data.
Gatomon's fist went into a Kuwagamon and it made it fly back causing it to run away.
Greymon stood pround with Tai and Gabumon on his shoulders.
"TAI!" I yelled. He looked at me and gave me a worried look.
All 3 attacks went to an individual Kuwagamon causing them to run away.
"KARI!" Tai yelled as he ran over to me. He gave me a hug. "Are yo-is that Patamon, that means…where's T.K?"
I gasped. "OH NO!"
I let go of Tai and looked over the cliff. T.K was gone.
I shifted slowly. Twitching my body slowly and trying to get up. I was near a river's shore. It was daytime. My clothes were all wet, I was probably in the river.
I got up slowly, my entire body was aching. It felt like I was run over by a truck.
When I finally stood up on my two feet and i took a step and an intense pain shot up my left knee.
I went down to my knees again.
"Guess I won't be moving for a while…" And then I saw my hope, I saw a sturdy looking branch. I crawled over to it and grabbed it. I put my weight on it and stood up. Using it as a cane I was able to walk slowly through a sandy shore. My stomach grumbled, I was starving. And then I saw smoke in the sky. "Good people may be near by…"
I walked for about 5 minutes when I was knocked onto the ground my a small looking red creature. "WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT DO YOU WANT?"
I thought about it, that was a good question.
Who am I?...
