This thread got no posting order. Do as you please. "...Hey, Ayaka... I've been wondering this for quite a while now, but... why it almost felt like we're going in circles?" Canisdramon asked, sounding really concerned. "Darkie, too, don't you feel the same about this eerie forest? It's almost like... we're never going to Village of Beginning... it's like an endless loop of... forest."
"It... doesn't seem to be the case. We've gone straight... and since three minutes ago, remember when I told you to spread your wings a bit? I already marked one of the tree, and honestly, if we're going on a loop, then... it doesn't make sense because the tree never appeared."
"Hey... this worries me..."
True enough, it's like they're lost... lost and without any sort of map at all. It's getting dark right now... and honestly, even Canisdramon is getting tired of running.
"...Hey, as much as I don't like this place, I think we should rest for a bit... if we're going to press ahead without thinking at all, we'll probably be in awry situation," Yuuki suggested.
There's something about this place... it's both eerie and it doesn't feel like anything could damage it. Whatever tossed at it, it simply recovers... or so what Yuuki thought.
Something was wrong. They had been running for a long time, but they weren't getting anywhere. It was as if the forest was moving alongside them. He couldn't put it into words, but Sangloupmon started looking at the sides, searching for signs that indicated they had been already in the same spot... to no avail. No pattern seemed to repeat in the forest, but yet, it was like they weren't moving at all.
-Darkie, too, don't you feel the same about this eerie forest? It's almost like... we're never going to Village of Beginning... it's like an endless loop of... forest -Canisdramon said, as Yuuki also revealed his thoughts on the matter. Sangloupmon showed his bare teeth to the atmosphere. So he wasn't the only one to think that. The lupine monster lifted his snout, and sniffed.
-I've been smelling it for a while... suddenly, the entire odor was changed. I lost track of the Village of Begginings... then began noticing this. I'm still not sure what it is, but... something is rotten here -the wolf-like Digimon muttered, making a "tch" sound as he looked at the top of the forest. Little sunlight entered, so their vision was greatly diminished.
As much as he didn't want to, when Yuuki said that they should stop there, Tatsuya nodded, in agreement. -True. Otherwise, we might get too tired to continue. I'd brought a lot of food from home, so I guess I can share if you don't have any... However, I agree with Sangloupmon. There is something going on here, and we need to be at full strength if anything comes. I've already ran into Digimon that can hypnotize you, and then, you won't even know you are under a spell. So we better watch ourselves... -the teen spoke, looking at the other teens.
"Oh no, don't get me wrong, Tatsuya-san. I wasn't refering to you when I said Arachnophobia. I've met some people who really have it and your reactions would have been way more extreme if you had it!".
The nerve; the nerve indeed. Even as an adult, Dorumon had been cold at best, becoming even outright rude to her on their final exchange, and Ayaka could only wonder why. Yet, she had decided to see her little experiment through its end. What it was? She was actually trying to being nice for one day. Not as nice as Mana, but she had began to think that she was likeable because of that fact, and maybe that way people and other digimon would like her... more? As of now, she was in for a big dissapointment, but she wanted to see this through. She had all her life to get back at Dorumon when the day ended.
Yet, Canisdramon get her out of her thoughts, asking her about what she thought about the apparent fact that they were like totally lost in here.
"You are right, Canissdramon-ssan" the spider said "Thiss plasse got different. And while I can sstill see in low-light enviromentss, I guessss it iss ssafer if we sstop in here until you and Ssangloupmon-ssan are a little more ressted, jusst in casse. Alsso, where iss Ankh-ssan? I have yet to ssee him. Maybe he hass found the path to the Village of the Beginingss after all?".
Yet, Mana couldn't but smile widely at Tatsuya's idea. "Yay! Picnic!"
As the night fell and the pair stopped with the rest, Mana devolved Ayaka into her rookie form but Ayaka looked a bit different. Everyone would see that her colors were darker, her "hair" was half as short shorter, the leaf mask on her face seemed to be a little more "closed" and she even looked to just a little bit smaller. But the main difference was that she sat on the soft grass with a relaxed and not-serious expression as she made herself and everyone who'd accept it a comfortable mat of grass. She didn't spoke as now, but just laid there with a calmed expression and a smile.
"So, what did you bring Tatsuya-san? I've a good amount Ramune with me right now, but that's always a given" Mana asked as sat on the grass mat Ayaka had made "I'm a just tiny bit hungry though, I won't eat too much!"
Post by Ankh the Overlord on Oct 5, 2014 4:23:24 GMT
Ankh flew in direction to the Village of Beginnings on the skies. It was smooth flight, until he noticed something... weird. Even though he flew, he was feeling as if he returned into a same place. The Garudamon X felt as if he was trapped in a labyrinth. He had flung straight, but for some reason, he kept going into the same place.
"YGG-DAMN!" Ankh frantically shouted in frustration that he couldn't get into tge destination. "Whoever made this mess and f*cked up our head, COME HERE! FIRE HURRICANE!"
Ankh then conjured fire in his wings and flapped them continuously to generate a large hurricane of fire. Said hurricane would burn the trees around him to clear the path. However, these trees stayed intact despite getting the burn. Ankh grimaced in further frustration, burning more of the trees. But it was a futile attempt that the tree kept standing strong after the fire faded, as if they consumed the fire.
"Motherf*cker! DON'T F*CK WITH MEEEEEE!" Ankh roared in anger as he unleashed more fiery hurricanes. The trees kept standing even until they're subsided. The birdman then noticed the group of brats resting. He then flew to them.
"...Well, looks like seven of us are trapped here," Yuuki commented after Ankh landed. Canisdramon beside him rolled his eyes in exasperation. None of them, not even the aerial type could gone further, afterall. He decided to try something... Digging the ground. He doesn't care of whatever anyone think of such action, but...
As he thought, even though he tries to dig for the soil beneath the grass, after several seconds, grass grows rapidly like this place is alive. That's certainly very disturbing to the lupine Digimon. If it's because of Ayaka, he understands, but it's seem not the plant Digimon's doing. Giving up, he sat on the patch of grass prepared by the said sprite.
"Thanks... I think I'm going to get crazy if we just mindlessly charges ahead," Canisdramon thanked Ayaka. Yuuki, wanting to reserve Canisdramon's energy, quickly devolves him back to Dorumon.
"That aside, I myself brought some bento from my sister... and another from Karin. She's starting to take cooking lesson from Darcmon once her parents not in home. Good enough compared to her previous lunchbox made by herself... She forced herself to eat it and fainted..." Yuuki chuckled at the memory.
To Sangloupmon's surprise, it seemed that even him and Ayaka could agree at something if given the right conditions. The wolf kind of expected her to toss his comment on the forest around, but she actually didn't. He looked at her as if she was a completely different person when Nephilamon shared her regards on the matter. -Thiss plasse got different. And while I can sstill see in low-light enviromentss, I guessss it iss ssafer if we sstop in here until you and Ssangloupmon-ssan are a little more ressted, jusst in casse. Alsso, where iss Ankh-ssan? I have yet to ssee him. Maybe he hass found the path to the Village of the Beginingss after all? -the giant spider told them, as Mana welcomed Tatsuya's idea with a loud "YAY!"
As night fell on the seemingly endless forest, they found a place comfortable enough to spend the time until they were recovered and ready to go forward again. Tatsuya took a few stones and dry leaves he found nearby, and set up a small, but controlled, campfire. His father had taught him how to do it properly, and despite him thinking it would be an useless thing to know, it had actually come in handy in the end. With a gesture, he told Sangloupmon to come near. The Digimon seemed to understand, and laid near the spot. His paws reached forward, and he grazed his blades between each other, creating a spark that lit the fire.
Now with a way to keep themselves warm, Tatsuya listened at the others saying what they had brought to eat. Finding a place comfortable enough, he sat and took his backpack opening it and pulling three boxes. -Well, let's see... I have plenty of Onigiri, because I love rice very much. Some of them also have tuna, but if you don't like them, I'll tell you a secret: they are the ones with the light-coloured seaweed. I also have Takoyaki and sushi.
Sangloupmon looked at Canisdramon, then to Ayaka, as they degenerated back to their usual forms. To his surprise, she looked different: her hair was shorter, and the leaves covering her face like a mask were much smaller. Also, she had a darker shade of her usual colour... perhaps due to the night?
He didn't knew if she ate or not, since she was a plant. He also couldn't understand photosynthesis, but grabbed a water bottle from Tatsuya's backpack nonetheless after degenerating to Dorumon as well. Taking it as well as his paws allowed him to, the fox-like creature went next to her, dropped the bottle next to Ayaka, and laid on the ground using his tail as a pillow. -Here. Lightie and I aren't the only ones who need to regain energy -Dorumon said. He then grabbed an onigiri and bit it, chewing on the rice as he looked at the fire. -"Why do I even bother helping her? She'll probably just start talking crap about my barbaric, feral manners" -he thought to himself.
"Oh, no, we didn't get lost, Ankh-san! We're just having a picnic because Tatsuya-san said that it'd be fun! And because he's the 'responsable adult' after all!" Mana had said the last part as a joke, but it was still pretty hard of notice of she had been sarcastic or not with Ankh. It'd be at anybody's guess.
Smiling at the new and comfy mat they had thanks to Ayaka, she reached her backpack and pulled four bottles of Ramune, offering them to whomever felt like taking them, and then looked at Yuuki with a somewhat curious expression.
"I knew that you and Karin-nee would get together sooner or later, you're so cute together!" she said after Yuuki told them about the bento thing "So, tell us the gossip! Karin-nee usually evades talking about you when we get together, as she usually blushes and changes topics, so I need to know! Are you treating her like she deserves to, right?" at her own question, she let out a small laugh "Oh, surely you're doing it. It's Karin-nee the person who we are talking about. She would most likely do her stuff unto you if you ever did something to her. But still, spill it!".
As Mana tried to coax precious info from Yuuki, Tatsuya's Dorumon was being nice with Ayaka? That was a weird happening, but no the only?
"Thanks" she said with a surprisingly soft voice as she closed her eyes and gave Dorumon a geniune smile.
While (mostly) everybody knows that Ayaka's capable of smiling, but one word sentences? For everyone except for Mana, that was indeed a first timer, as in every occasion that the fairy opened her mouth it was pretty obvious that everybody nearby was in for a long winded speech or something like that. She didn't even notice Ankh as she opened the open and took a few gulps out of it, before finally setting on the floor again. She sighed relaxed, before laying on the mat that she had created one more time.
Post by Ankh the Overlord on Oct 6, 2014 1:09:09 GMT
Hearing Mana's remark about Tatsuya being a "responsible adult", Ankh just scoffed in chagrin. So they started a picnic, in midst of the labyrinth forest? He didn't bother to spend more energy, either. He needed a rest, and of course, time to replenish his energy. It was no use to burn this forest, as it recovered from each damage by itself.
"While I don't get your idea of camping here, resting is probably a good idea." The Garudamon X said.
The birdman rested his body on the grass bed, sighing in fatigue. He had too much spent his energy by throwing useless attacks and swearing, so proceeding further was a bad idea. He then looked around, to see if there were anyone besides the group, but he didn't find nothing. If someone or somebody tried to mess up with their heads, it was natural to have himself alerted to any situation in case he came ever again.
"I dunno what happens, but looks like someone or somebody wanna f*ck up our heads. You should be careful." Ankh warned the group. He then turned to the plant fairy, and he then turned away as soon as he finished glancing, trying to hide the blush on his face from her. He was attracted to Ayaka, but he was trying to hide it. He was a tsundere, wasn't he?
"Say, little brat, what do you find in that flower princess-wannabe?" Ankh asked the youngest girl of the group.
"Heh, she's the tsundere of the relationship, but... eh, I guess she'll give me a mean look if I said it to her face. Basically... uh... where to start. I know Karin since long ago, and she's my neighbor. Me, Ryouta and her lived in same neighborhood, and honestly, sometimes I felt left out when they start to bicker with each other and have to play the middleman every single time... Heh, the memories... But that's not important isn't it? You said you want gossip, but about what? Like kissing and dating?"
"Must be that. Spill it out, Casanova!" Dorumon beside him told him, nudging his ribs. The beast dragon grinned ear to ear.
"Uh, well, nothing much happened, really. We still act normally although a bit more closer and... let's say, she started to make bento for me, and... well, come over to Judo club, I guess? I'm going to ask her for a date soon, but she said she wanted to have double date. Kind of odd, but still nice, I guess? What about yours, then, Mana? I heard from Karin you got a boyfriend for yourself?"
He grinned, teasing the younger girl while at it. However, soon his eyes glanced at Tatsuya.
"And how about the real Casanova here, anyway, hm?"
Yuuki opened his bento. It only consist of side dishes for some reason... while on another box, which made by Karin... it looks really haphazard curry rice. Not sure if it's edible, as the curry is so red that it seem spells instant tongue burn. There's a letter from her.
Don't eat it no matter what if you have bad feelings about it... at least I tried, so just treat it as prototype... and again, DON'T EAT IT IF YOU HAVE BAD FEELING ABOUT IT! I don't want you to lost your sense of taste!
Dorumon was munching on his onigiri in a bored expression as his head rested on his furry tail, his gaze lost in the fire as he saved energy. He was expecting Ayaka to come and start telling him how idiotic he was for even thinking she needed his help... Perhaps that was why his head tilted to the plant-like Digimon's direction when a single word escaped her lips. -Thanks... -Ayaka muttered, smiling towards him with her eyes closed.
Tatsuya's partner then looked away, surprised and taken aback by her reaction. He certainly didn't have a reply ready for that single word, that was for sure. -Y-Yeah... you're welcome, I guess -the Dorumon said, actually a little embarrassed at his own attitude. She was always an annoyance, yet it was completely different that time. Even when being nice, she actually managed to confuse him...! -Why did I even do it in the first place? They threatened me and Tatsuya... that's no good -he whispered to himself, making sure nobody else would hear it. He then finished his ornigiri and grabbing another piece, lifting his head slightly as the conversation changed its topic: love.
Tatsuya was surprised when he heard that Yuuki and Karin had gotten together. He leaned to Yuuki's side, his elbow pushing the younger teen's arm in a teasing way. -Huh? And you didn't plan on telling me, Yuuki? You better start spilling right now, man -he said with a mischievous smile on his face, helping Mana achieving their now shared goal of making him talk about his relationship with Karin. Eventually, he had no choice but to give in to their demands (and his partner's, of course).
-Uh, well, nothing much happened, really. We still act normally although a bit more closer and... let's say, she started to make bento for me, and... well, come over to Judo club, I guess? I'm going to ask her for a date soon, but she said she wanted to have double date. Kind of odd, but still nice, I guess? What about yours, then, Mana? I heard from Karin you got a boyfriend for yourself?
Tatsuya let out an "uh, yeah", and talked again. -Charles... -he muttered, as Dorumon's ears rose and he lifted his head even more at the mention of that guy's name. The Rookie still didn't like it a bit. He remembered the incident in the shopping mall, and his gaze became cold once again. -"Yeah, that's right... He should watch out, because next time, I'll..." -he thought, his eyes turning harsher with each thought word.
Luckily, Yuuki also teased Tatsuya on the matter. -And how about the real Casanova here, anyway, hm? -the younger teen said. Tatsuya then chuckled, and leaned backwards, looking at the trees' leaves. -Huh... I never said I was a Casanova, specially since I don't have any experience on romantic or cheesy stuff. The times I was with girls, it would be just to have a good time. A few of them sometimes said they liked me a lot, but I didn't really care. I mean, what was the point? I'd leave sooner or later, and leave memories behind... That's why I've never been in a stable relationship... Also, I hate being tied down. I like to be free to do as I want... with boundaries, of course. -he confessed, a sad smile forming in his visage. Maybe he had lived a lot of experiences, but he'd missed that one as well...
-I wonder if there was ever any girl I truly liked...
"What do I find in Ayaka, you say?" she asked at Ankh's question "Why would I need to find something in her? She's my partner! And even then, if I could describe her, I'd say that she's very wise and always has good advice to give. She's caring and would do almost anything for every person she cares about, not minding the consequences one bit. Yeah, she may seem to be direct and she sometimes doesn't realize how much her words can hurt, but that's not the real her. You see, she's a plant, and as such, she gets more of her sustenance from photosyntensis. In a nutshell, during daytime, she gathers energy from the sun and that stuff and at night she metabolizes it, converting it into her sustenance for the next day. I don't get it too much, but that process is a little stressing unless there's plenty of sunlight and she usually reaches the nightfall somewhat exhausted, and that's why her hair is shorter and all that stuff. She'll maybe seem to be a bit groggy as of now, but that will only last for fifteen minutes or so before she takes her usual nocturnal attitude. And now that she can't take the offense, I gotta say that she's a lot more likeable at night".
Ayaka just laid there, seemingly asleep and totally oblivious to the conversation. She seemed to be in a strange kind of bliss, but at least she looked to be genuinely happy"
Back on topic, and on Yuuki's question about Mana's boyfriend. "Oh, yes. I've been dating Charles-kun for a little less than a week. He's a really nice and caring guy, although..." both Dorumon and Tatsuya's expressions somewhat gave away what they felt about his boyfriend "Well, that. Thinking about it deeply, I can't really blame them for not liking Charles-kun. I just hope that don't blame me if I try to defend him from whoever means harm to him, and that includes his spirits" now she even started getting a little sad "Being totally honest, I'd do anything if it were a way to rid him of his spirits. I mean, I know that this is gonna sound harsh but, if someway I could separate his spirits from his body... I would delete them all. On the very spot".
She actually meant those words, but she hoped that the atmosphere faded away quickly, as she didn't like to talk about that. Luckily, Tatsuya started talking about his (now unexistent) romantic life. "Don't worry Tatsuya-san! I'm pretty sure that you'll met that special someone pretty soon! I just feel it! Tell you what, I'm pretty sure that her name starts with... N! Don't tell me how I know it, because I just know!"

"I see. So that's how you see in her." Ankh noted as he rested his head on his hands. So he had a reason to hit on Ayaka after all. "I hate to admit this, but promise me not to tell anyone. I'm interested of your partner, but I don't want the attraction halts me from being stronger."
Ankh's face blushed redder as he told what he held about Ayaka. He was having crush on her, secretly. But he hesitated to tell it in any way. Not to mention he heard the discussion about dates and loves. This made Ankh blushed in vivid red, while imagining if he could date Ayaka.
The Garudamon X sighed, how long they would be trapped in this illusory forest. Hopefully it wouldn't afflict trauma effect on them. And the discussion also reminded him on something: His long lost family and his rival.
"Maybe we should wait until whoever willing to mess up with our heads come soon enough." Ankh suggested. If only he still had popsicles with him, he could ate one. But alas, he didn't bring any. He needed a snack, so he decided to take on something. He took the box of (haphazard) curry rice and ate the rice, leaving only the box. These foods were surprisingly had good taste in his mouth.
"That curry of yours tastes good. I like these extra spices in it." Ankh commented.
"So platonic at best, huh? Well, looks like I can never understand why foreigner or any playboy do it, but I guess, you won't understand why I let myself tied to just one girl, too," he laughed on the last part. "But let's just say, I'm sure one day you'll meet your beloved girl... and when that day come, best get prepared for everything. Karin's so different, even though she's my childhood friend since looong ago, I still found part of her that is new for me when we dated, so what I mean is, you can't expect everything to sail smoothly like when you do it for fun. Although, needless to say you're much more experienced than me in this, right?"
Then, Mana said few words about her boyfriend, which quickly caught Yuuki offguard. What the---actual f**k? He haven't encounter any of those spirit wielders, but it sounds like spirit possession taken to the extreme. The other Dorumon seem really hates this Charles guy... For more than many reason, he's glad that he doesn't have to be a spirit wielder... no, he's thankful that his partner is sane.
"...Your determination... is really commendable..." Yuuki commented. How can a girl like this became as strong as she is? It's sort of worrying and at the same time, so sad....
"...So, what with this Karin-nee business? I know that she became surrogate aunt for Kyo, but at the same time, if you put it like that, what I am, huh? Your surrogate oniisan?" he teased, just to lighten the mood.
But as he about to eat his curry, the oversized bird took it and eat it whole...
"...Well, damn, Yuuki... What to tell to Karin now?"
"...Oversized bird love your curry, he ate it before I could took a taste."
When Tatsuya heard Yuuki's comment about his relationships with girls being platonic, the teen couldn't help but to laugh out loud, very amused by his comment. It wasn't a gesture intended to make him feel bad, but rather, a happy, sincere laugh. The moment he was able to stop, he looked at Yuuki and attempted to ruffle his hair. -Well, well... I guess you are a little too dense, man. You know, being with girls to "have fun" doesn't actually mean to just play around. Let's just say that I've... reached the end with some of them -the older teen said with a mischievous smile, hoping that Mana would be too naïve to actually understand what he was referring to.
It was then when Ankh, the strange Hawkmon that had tagged alongside them in their journey, descended in his Garudamon X form to talk to Mana. What Tatsuya and Dorumon heard at that time, they could've never expected. -I hate to admit this, but promise me not to tell anyone. I'm interested of your partner, but I don't want the attraction halts me from being stronger -the bird-like Digimon confessed Mana. Tatsuya just chuckled, looking at Ayaka and then at Dorumon to see his reaction.
As the fox-like Digimon said that, he rose his head once more, looking at the origin of the sudden confession, and smirked. -Remember what I said about you having earned my respect? Well, I take it back, red pigeon -he told the Garudamon X with a half-smile as he drove his second onigiri into his mouth. That one had tuna in it, and he enjoyed the taste while moving his ears slightly down and up, a sign that he liked it.
The flow of the conversation changed when Mana said that, if there was a way, she would get Charles rid of his spirits and delete them all instantly. -Heh. Apparently we think the same way about that, though I made it very clear that day at Shibuya 104 -Tatsuya muttered, thinking about the event. He had gotten angry, but still, it was all in the past at that time.
-Don't worry Tatsuya-san! I'm pretty sure that you'll met that special someone pretty soon! I just feel it! Tell you what, I'm pretty sure that her name starts with... N! Don't tell me how I know it, because I just know! -Mana told him. The boy chuckled and denied with a smile. -Let's be honest: I hate being tied down, you know. I mean, I came to Shibuya to be on my own, not to let someone restrain me, even if it's just from meeting another girls. You know, since I tend to speak with anyone at the tiniest chance, it could be a problem. If I truly liked her... well, that could be another case, but I still doubt it -he admitted, not knowing that, some days later, he would've changed his mind completely.
Mana looked at Ankh perplexed. So he was like Karin, but on a whole new different level of aggressiveness "Well, Ankh-san, I really find cute the fact that you have romantic feelings for Ayaka, but I really don't know if she's suited for loving, you know. I mean, when I talked with Karin-nee about my crush on Ryouta-san" she blushed a little at the memory, but guessed that everybody cept Ankh knew, and most likely Ankh didn't care "She said that she hasn't been infatuated by anybody ever before. Although if you're serious about it, I'll totally give you some tips!" she gave a glance at Ayaka, making sure that she was still <sleeping> before starting.
"Firstly, if you want to make a good impression to her you have to treat her with respect. You see, every time I introduce us to anybody she's always bowing and that stuff, so it's not surprise that it's important to her. You don't have to be so formal or cold, but acknowledging her pressence is usually good enough. Also, you blew it pretty badly back before; she will eventually forgive most of what she perceives as verbal insults, but physical gestures are almost an event horizon for her unless you apologize for them immediately. Say, when Tatsuya-san tried to pet her when he first met her, he realized his mistake soon enough and apologized, and that's why she's now fine around him. So, maybe she now seems to be happy but even with her nightly good mood, she'll still be pretty mad at you for not apologizing about the popsicle stick, and even taunting her further after that. I'm pretty sure that the 'I'm too tired to even look for a garbage can' hurt her pretty badly because most likely she took it as if you meant that she was your garbage can, and that was just the beginning of the conversation, as much more offenses followed soon after. So... if you ask me, unless you start making up to her in the precise instant she wakes up, I'm totally sure that your chances with her are pretty close to nil. She's a strong girl, so don't try to push her around or you're likely to discover that even if the bloom is beautiful... it's covered by thorns. Pretty, sharp and polite throns, but thorns nonetheless".
After that long winded explanation, she heard Yuuki's compliments and questions, she just smiled, thankful that this time he didn't seem to be as dense as he was before. "Oh, thank you, Yuuki-san! Well, Karin's my sister since she said that Charles-kun needed 'her approval' to officially be my boyfriend, and Jeanne-san suggested that only surrogate sisters did that kind of things, so I connected some dots and now she's Karin-nee. And well, since Yuu-niisan's going to travel abroad, you may as well! After all, Yuuki's like Yuu, but with two more letters! And don't worry, I'll totally vouch for in on that 'missing bento'. After all, maybe she will know Ankh-san soon enough" she was joking at the last part too, accepting Yuuki's joke. Truth was that the house felt rather solitary without his brother's presence around, and she'd love to have the couple over there some day. After all, none of her friends knew her house.
Taking and onigiri for herself, she looked at Tatsuya with a smile. She knew that they older boy was hidding something from her, but that didn't matter as of now. "Oh, don't worry. People on the dramas say that just before meeting their other half. If I were you, I'd have my eyes and my heart open. You never know when your life will do a full spin".
Of course, just after Mana practically talked about her as if she were a really interesting test subject, the little plant slowly got up while she stretched her temporarily tiny limbs. Her colors, features and size were again the same as before, but her hair was still three-quarters its normal size. Yet still, her expression looked a lot more calmed and carefree than before. She even blushed a little when she recognized the situation in where she was. "Ah, um, sorry for entering my metabolizing phase like that. Today was a really cloudy day and I wanted to end it as fast as possible. It was just too... frustrating. Anyway, did I miss something?" she took the water bottle that was besides her one more time a drank from it slowly, almost as if it were a glass. She then looked at Dorumon with the same smile she had before, only that this time she wasn't closing her eyes "You were really kind, Dorumon-san. Sorry for not thanking you properly back then".
