Tatsuya sat down and took one of the bowls with rice, mixing it with the curry a little before attempting to eat a little, only to find out that it was burning, so he'd have to let it get a little colder until it was at a manageable temperature. In the meantime, he noticed Koharu shooting him an obvious distrusting look, to which he replied with a smirk. -What? He told you, I didn't do anything... or did I? I'll let you guess... -he told the girl with a mischievous voice.
However, although his partner hadn't say anything, Dorumon did notice the look Koharu gave him, and immediately turned its head to the girl. He was a little angry by her attitude, and frowned slightly. -He told you he didn't do anything. Plus, what are you going to do? If you have any threats, by all means, tell me, and I'll pile them up with the rest of unimportant crap -the Rookie told her, Tatsuya petting its furry head.
-It's okay, pal, don't worry -he attempted to convince Dorumon, who just snorted and kept eating his dinner. -He is always like that with everyone, so don't mind him. Deep down he can be a good partner... or a least, a less pricky one -the teen laughed as his partner rolled his eyes, asking himself how could he have such an idiotic Tamer.
-So, girl, you seem pretty close to Ryouta. Have you know each other since you were little, or when you started school...? Honestly, I'm curious, and it'll be a good topic to lighten the mood after my pal's display... -he muttered, the Dorumon smirking.
"Two names? Why would one want two names?" UFADO asked "I'd get the idea of wanting to relate to each other, by you humans arledy are...so similar. Yet, I must face it, also so different and complex..."
UFADO thought about this, all while he attempted to dephicer the mistery behind what was going on around him. It seemed some kind of problem about another human, one "related" to this ones it seemed. The conversation was going off his league, beyond his grasp. He retracted into a nearby corner, simply examining, trying to re-attain the minimal hold of the human talkm He felt useless and powerless, since it seemed that nomatter where he went and when, he always ended up on the sidelines, trying to understand what others were saying.
There was a time when it hand'r been like that. Afterall, he once had been a major thread in the digital world, trying to strike on Yggdrasil and his Royal Knights. So close, so close he had been to start a kingdoom of perfection...yet he had forgotten the King's power, the ignored the fact that he himself wasn't perfect, despite being the closest there was to it.
Koharu was about to stand up and kick the Dorumon on his snout when Ryouta suddenly put a hand on her shoulder. And by a hand on her shoulder, he's actually pressing her down, like telling her to sit. The girl begrudgingly agreed, and honestly, if Ryouta said nothing, then it'll be nothing. Koharu has totally taken much different approach to this situation compared to her usual self. Her usual self would just try to made things a lot smoother, but this big prick of a cow-faced fox dragon Digimon just have to ruin her mood altogether!
"...Well, I'm sorry to assume stuffs because this guy here is as important as a big brother to me, but... Please make sure to tell your partner who's been here longer. I don't like his way of staring at me, especially the way he act."
"...Cut the c**p out," she heard Ryouta angrily shot. Koharu quickly froze. "First, we're having a dinner, so no fighting. Second, we're here all as friends, not as enemy. Anyone who want to start a fight will get kicked out. This is not an all-talk threat, and I'll make sure that would happened. Am I being clear?"
If she can be honest, she'd prefer to put her legs on the table after that annoying display and how the Digimon acted and how it made Ryouta angry at her, but that gonna be really disrespectful. Ino and Kizu looks sad, too... Only Ren who keeps eating without paying any heed to the antics at hand.
"...I'm always with him since childhood... not as close as Yuuki and Karin, but still close enough."
Then, she turned to UFADO.
"I have no idea. Some country doesn't have it, some does. Japan is one of the country that uses surname. I do know that some other country doesn't because it's probably a hassle. Speaking of names, Arabian only gave one name to their children, then the rest of their names actually refers to their forefathers' names. That's quite interesting, doesn't it?"
Tatsuya scratched the back of his head with an apologetic grin, his eyes closed, clearly amused by the girl's petition of "telling his partner who's been there longer", which only grew wider as she attempted to stand up and direct herself to Dorumon, only to be stopped by Ryouta. The Digimon smirked too, knowing that he'd just gotten her angry, and returned to his curry rice. -Heh, sorry. As I said, don't mind him, if you don't fall for the bait, he'll stop immediately -he explained, the purple Digimon snorting.
-Pffft. Shut up, dumbass! You never let me have my fun, you know -the Digimon replied with irony, albeit a half-grin in his face. -Don't worry, man. Once we find someone we both find as an annoyance, you'll be able to lash out at that person all that you want. Patience! -the Kazan said, taking a dip of rice in his mouth, then looking at UFADO. He answered his question, although with his mouth full. -Mph, whe haf twhu nam... -he then rose a hand, signaling to wait, and forcefully swallowed the food.
-Ah, that's better. It's to distinguish each other better, since in the Human World identification is very important. Digimon don't have that, I suppose, though I've never stopped to think about it 'till now, to be honest! -the indigo-eyed boy said, before speaking again. -In Japan, the surname is said first, though I'm an idiot and always forget. I end up saying Tatsuya Kazan, like, ninty-nine percent of the times, and have to explain afterwards... -he explained.
Dorumon then shoot Koharu a glare after Ryouta said that everyone starting a fight would get kicked out. -Well, you've heard him. Since Ryouta's asking, I'll stop right away, promise. But! We can continue the argument another day if you'd like to -the Digimon said in a half-joking, half-serious tone.
UFADO considered what he was being told for a moment. Human names had rules, something he could understand as it made sense to have regulations when the purpose was to help identification, yet there one small problem: the rules didn't seem to be universal in all human cultures, but the names were. So could it help to those names with little to no meaning? She mentioned this so called "Arabian" culture gave their children a single name plus the names of their ancestors.
"It is curious indeed. Why would anyone want the name of their ancestors for identification purpouses? Won't that make them be confused with their ancestors? We digimon often have the name of their general category in their name, as a way of stating a possible ancestor who might have passed on power to them. Do humans also pass on power to their descendants? Is emotion one of such traits?" UFADO inquired "I wouldn't tell them not to fight so readily, Ryouta. It is only healthy that one fights , if the proper moderation is applied to the situation, of course. But I am inexperienced in human eating habits. Is there something in your anatomy that prevents fighting and eating at the same time?"
