And so, it had been decided. Beverly and Keramon would train Ankh while Majin himself would train both Karin and her. Mana, as she previously expressed, was mostly fine with it. Yet, Ankh seemed to want to prolong the debate about human resurrection and power, but as the discussion continued, Mana decided again to shut her ears towards the birdman and his interlocutors' words. She wouldn't like to see how Karin would react to her distress, so she just concentrated on their next destiny: training! And it seemed that it was going to begin right now! Mana undoubtly felt thrilled about it.
And so, Majin created another portal that stood there, as a tacit invitation to the unknown. What 'training' did the white-haired tamer had in mind? Mana could only guess, but if she was honest with herself, it didn't matter for her at all. Smiling with excitement, she waved at everyone present in the place as she began to walk towards the portal, with Ayaka bowing in tow. "Bye everyone! Hopefully we'll see you soon enough!". After saying that and sneaking to try and give Keramon another quick hug, because even if she hadn't heard the conversation, it was pretty clear that the digimon was in need of one, she took a deep breath and crossed the portal, venturing into whatever Majin had planned for them. exit(Thread);

The birdman expressed his interest towards the idea. Now with the ideas of resurrection from death in Digital World, it was more possible, especially with the idea of complete digitize of human body into data. So, it's like implementing Digimon's life cycle.
"I see. It would've been a good idea if the human body is completely converted into digital data when in Digital World, so the reformatting is possible." Ankh elaborated Majin's idea with his theory of human reformatting.
Ankh then listened to Beverly and Keramon's point of view about power. Though he knew most people would use power to destroy, they did use their power to protect. But protecting is not enough without destroying the thing they protect from. Like what happened in his past...
"You heard it earlier, right? I lost my adoptive family, and I didn't have anything to protect them back then. Now I've nothing left in my life, and no place where I belong to. The only thing I want is to place judgment on them, and to release this world from practice of Social Darwinism. Perhaps if fate allows, I wanna find a place where I belong..."
Ankh then looked at Ayaka, and something in her reminded him to one of the Pandamons treated him back then. He had looked harsh, but actually, he had been kind to him. "But that flower princess... She reminds me to one of my friend, and he was really kind to me back then. Perhaps I find the place where I belong in her..." Ankh said.
Ankh noticed Keramon shaking a bit... when he saw Majin and Beverly. Could it be... "So you feel so insecure of yourself, huh?" the Garudamon X asked the rookie. "So you have desire to be strong at all. And guess what? I feel the same way. Being insecure when seeing someone stronger than me, and it urges me to seek power more, to become stronger than everyone else."

And so, the group seemed to splitting off. However, Keramon seemed to be trembling. Beverly couldn't quite read him like Ankh could (given that they were more relatable to each other then Ankh was to Bev), and he addresses the virus digimon first. Granted, if that was the case, the reasoning for Kera's quaking, that is, it would mean that Beverly was part of the issue. While Beverly had no idea how she stacked power wise to Majin and Shadow, there were no others who matched them.
"Don't worry, Keramon, we all had that desire for power at some point. Anyway, I unfortunately... or fortunately... cannot say I suffered losses like you or Ankh had." The biggest loss Bev had was when she thought she killed Garm, but, transformation aside, he was fine now. "I know where my actual family lies, and they are hardly family. Even my sister, whom is the only one I am on good terms with, isn't much of a sister to me. It's not any sort of malice, there is simply little of any sisterly connection. I was the Black Sheep of the family.
I came from a family of mercenaries, and when I was young, I wanted to be the villian. My desires kept me from being taken seriously back then, and I left... on fairly bad terms. While my end goal has changed, my means remain the same; power to do what I want and need to do. My family are my closest friends now, and I love them dearly, so I wish to protect them.
Unless you plan on living under a rock or burn every bridge you see, you'll get more friends, Ankh... maybe even a loved one, heh heh. I'm far from one to profess pacifism though, so if someone wants to destroy what you hold dear, and you have the chance to protect it, *given reason* you just might have to end someone. You know this, I know this. I just want to be crystal clear on my stance in the matter. And trust me when I say that if you try to kill one of my close friends and my aid is required, then... well, I'm sure you can figure it out.
But you have to be balanced with your power, first and foremost."
With a chuckle, Vetina clapped. "No verbal venom at all, but I must express an amazement at rampant squalls of long queued air. But it's one that causes a typhoon of galvanizing winds.
As for myself... essays are not the best foundations for my verbosity. But I strike as it is my being. It's a pugilist career, almost. Flora and Fists are my claim to being, and sans those I'm of minute utility. I journey for self betterment in the marathon of life, aid whom I please.
There is no mystery to solve in reasoning my apprehension of offering sustained quips, even to aid, no?
A slight semblance of focus returned to Keramon's eyes, though they remained somewhat dim, as Ankh and Beverly spoke. Ankh thought that Keramon's reaction was based on insecurity, and Beverly was quick to reassure the rookie, but to both of their remarks on the matter Keramon softly shook his head. He listened as Bev recounted her story, and he pushed past the creeping fear in his chest to make sure he paid attention and filed away the facts in memory. He considered it a special thing to hear someone's past. The virus type also tried to make sense of what Vetina was saying but it was difficult sometimes with the plant type.
"Its not insecurity its...I don't know." How could he explain it? That he was afraid of something that he knew nothing about? The more he focused on it the more fear he felt, but there was something beyond it, almost like an image in his mind. A door in the darkness, covered in locks and chains. He felt like if he reached far enough he could touch it, maybe peak under it or through the primary keyhole. If he jus-
Suddenly Keramon was snapped back to reality by a surprise goodbye hug from Mana. Not now something seemed to whisper and the door disappeared. Keramon's focus completely returned and he couldn't help but grin as the little girl clung to him briefly.
"Goodbye Mana and Ayaka, I hope to see you again soon!" He exclaimed before returning his attention to Beverly and Ankh. "Anyway enough about me, this is about you, Ankh....although I have never trained anyone before. Uhm...Beverly?" The little Rookie glanced hopefully up at the Super Mega.
So everything will move to the next phase... training. Karin doesn't hate that straightforwardness. Everything like socializing can come later. For now, it's seem this group only consists of tamers and solo digimons. Three tamers, and she's definitely the weakest... while as for the other ones, four solo Digimons. So more or less, perhaps this setup is inevitable. She need to learn from the master afterall...
"Alright, well, then, once again, pleasure to meet you, everyone... may we have better time to socialize ourselves later."
Karin definitely said that just as pleasantries. She don't want to cross anyone here anyway... now, she really wondered what kind of training it is? What kind of method would the leader employs? The tamer motioned to her Digimon to come, which the angel in disguise complied. She took off her holosuit and appeared back in her Darcmon form. She followed Mana, rather nervous if she can do the best on her brother's expectation to her.
This time... I'll definitely won't fail to protect Mana... never again... that incident shall happened.
