Now, this was a funny one. Why Kyo was in the city of Eldoradimon? And why she wasn't with Yuu and could evolve as she pleased? Those two were funny questions, but because Bread hates humans plot reasons, I'll just leave them as unknowns. Now, to the story!
Kyo wandered through the lively city just as as the final preparations for Halloween seemed to be done. Just because she liked to keep appearances, she was currently donning her holosuit; if anybody called her out for looking like a huan, she could kick their asses too, so added fun! She also had to admit that she liked how she looked, but the reasons because of that weren't something to discuss right now.
Currently, she was searching for a very specific house, and who else's but Squire's house? The Veemon was probably her only friend in this strange city, so that wasn't really surprising. Knowing him, he'd be surely training or something of the like, even when today was a holiday. Such a party pooper, but that had a solution, of course! She'd get him out of his house, probably dress him up as something cute, and they they'd go around, asking for sweets! A perfect plan, devoid of any kind of flaw.
And, just like that, was how she arrived to the Squire's house. She smashed the knocker against the door rather soundly like... five or six times in a quick succession, before calling to the door.
"Squireeeeeeeee!? It's me, Kyo! I'm visiting you, so open the door!"

Squire-Veemon was a fairly serious digimon... for a child level, that is. He considered himself to be above childish activities such as this 'Halloween' Holiday. He had never actually seen the actual holiday, since he had only moved to live in the city little less than a year ago. He had heard a bit about it, and the entire concept just sounded dumb. He didn't care enough about candy to dress up in some stupid costume and beg for it at every Adult digimon's doorstep.
So what was he doing in the eve of Halloween?
Did you say training? You did, didn't you? Well you are wrong. He was napping. This was a rare day in which his master wasn't grinding his stamina into the ground through mind-crushingly boring errands. So Squire was just gonna sit his butt down and sleep for the entire day, Yggdrasil knew he needed the rest.
He had been napping for a good hour now, unaware to everything that was going outside of his home. The windows of his room were all open, a chilly, refreshing breeze blowing inside and keeping the temperature refreshingly comfy. He was tucked in into his bed as far as he could go, hugging a pillow that was larger than he was. It had been lent to him (Which meant it was now his, forever) from Dukemon.
All in all, he was currently under the effects of the perfect nap. So deep into his nap he was, the thundering sound of the knocker went completely unnoticed. Instead of waking up, the small dragon simply shifted slightly and rolled onto his other side before resuming his unmoving rest, his small chest rising with each breath. A few mumbles came out of his mouth, something about annoying puppies with dumb antics, but it was mostly just gibberish.
It would require far more than that to wake him up. Probably actually shaking him away.
He. Wasn't. Answering. To say that Kyo was just slightly irritated by this development was an understatement. An understatement she wouldn't forgive easily.
So, what did she do? She definitely didn't see the open window at the top of the house, and instead... took down the door, of course! If Squire was inside this house, he'd come with her, want it or not! Going through the house that she knew somewhat well, she went through the stairs straight to Squires room. She opened the door silently and saw Squire... napping. Welp.
He looked so perfectly peacefully. So... innocent, almost angelic. It'd be a pity if she disturbed that sleeping beauty, a reaaaaaaal pity.
"SQUIRE, WAKE UP!!!" Kyo's voice took a surprisingly loud tone, almost unnatural, in fact. Almost as if she were using Puppy Howling, were that ability on her repertoire. "YOU ARE MAKING ME WAIT, AND THAT'S REAAAAAAAAALLYYYYYY RUDE, YOU KNOW! WHAT KIND OF FUTURE SHIP YOU ARE!?"
For now, she only said that, hoping it'd be enough to wake up the sleeping dragon. It was probably on Squire's best interests to wake up now. Otherwise... well, better to not to tell what'd happen. That'd be spoilers.

You would think that with how loud the doggy was being, Squire would startle awake, huh? You would be wrong. The small dragon muttered a few rude sentences under his breath as Kyo's shouting echoed inside the room, turning away from her and hugging his pillow closer. He stubbornly refused to leave the heaven that was his nap, specially for annoyingly loud voices that sounded like puppies.
Unfortunately, her screaming reached decibels his ears simply couldn't ignore. Squire's eyelids scrunched tightly as his ears rang, low expletives flying out of his mouth as he slowly rolled again to face the puppy. He had a glazed over glare plastered over his face, looking both annoyed, confused and out of it. He was obviously not quite done waking.
Staring at the black puppy for a moment, Squire slowly blinked at her, his eyelids out of sync, one opening and closing before the other. Finally, his pupils seemed to dilate and constrict in quick succession before he finally snapped into focus.
Then a look of irritation slapped into his features.
"Who let you inside the house?" Was the first question to exit his mouth, his lip curled as he stared the puppy costumed as a human down. "And what the hell is with that get up?" Squire's opinion on humans was only marginally better than that of the average Golden City Citizen, and his respect for few members such as Yuu basically translated to 'You are a credit to your species'.
Basically, he didn't care much for humans.
"If Master catches you looking like that, he will put a spear through your guts, you know." He said, rubbing at his eyes with the back of his hand. "Wait, what are you even doing here?" Kyo was not a resident of the Golden City, and as Nomadic, Moving state, it was a fairly hard to find place. Looking over the Puppy curiously, he could only wonder what sort of important mission Kyo was currently undergoing.
There! He was finally awake! Kyo gave Squire a wide smile as she regarded his room with more detail; how long since the last time she's been here? No idea, but that didn't matter! She found herself facing many questions from the coming dragon, however. And of course, she'd answer them all, because those were rather easy questions.
"Let me inside? Me, of course! Given that nobody was answering the door, I just knocked it over! You'll probbly need to fix that soon, but it wouldn't have happened if you had picked me before, so it's your fault!" Her get up, however? Was there something wrong with it? "What's up with my clothes, however? Don't you like them? I think they're really cute! And I frankly don't care about what your master thinks a bout me or not, you know? That old tin can barely even remembers his own name! And if he really wants to go, He do good on searching for a job in a restaurant, because he'll end up looking as a cheese grater!"
She snickered at her own comment, even if it had a quota of truth. If a mega level came and just through he'd kill her as easily, he'd get an unpleasant surprise at the very least. Right, now on what mattered.
"I came to visit you, of course!" Not to say that he was probably the friend she liked poking the most, for whatever reason. "And also, today's Halloween, so we're going to go through each house asking for candy! Isn't that supergreat? I bet it is!"
The excitement Kyo felt towards the very activity probably bordered what a hooligan felt towards their sport. Why she liked Halloween so much? No idea!
"I even got like four spare costumes, in case you feel like you can't decide! So, what do you say? Are we doing this?"
That last question was crowned with a look that'd put the puss in boots in absolute shame. There was no way for Squire to say no to that proposal unless he wanted to be rejected by the fans worldwide. A perfect plan.

"My fault? You broke my darned door." He protested irritably, his brows knitted together into a frown. If his Master saw the unhinged door he would be the one forced to fix it. "You better pay for the carpenter; I am not fixing that." he finished with a huff, crossing his arms and turning his gaze away from her, his cheeks puffed. Everything had been going so well. Of course Kyo had to come and whip up a shit storm as she always did.
"Your clothes? I don't care about your clothes. You look like a human, fool. H-U-M-A-N. You know, that thing that is not allowed within city limits?" He said, looking frankly unimpressed. "Plus, that attire is so last season." He added, smirking at her slightly. He could play a little too.
He had to snort at her boast, clearly not believing her one bit. "Oh, he will find a restaurant alright. A Chinese one. Those are the humans that eat dogs, right?"
He didn't care how strong Kyo thought she was. His master was widely regarded as the strongest Knight in the Golden City's history. He was like, the strongest thing in the universe. At least. No way the doggy could fight him, even if she could go Mega as she liked to boast.
Turning on his bed, Squire threw his legs over the side of the bed, his feet swing occasionally as he spoke with the puppy. "Visit me? That's it? You went through the trouble of finding the Moving State just for a visit?" That was actually a little nice of her...
"And there it is." He said, rolling his eyes, leaning forward. His elbows rested onto his thighs, one of his hands supporting his head under the chin as he spoke. He looked decidedly uninterested, and who could blame him? Halloween was stupid. He didn't want to dress up in some ridiculous get up and beg for candy. He wasn't a damn kid.(Even though he was.) "No. Halloween is dumb. Can't we just sleep together instead?"
He failed to catch the connotations of his own words, naturally
"Well, yes! Of course it's your fault! If you have answered your door, it wouldn't be forced, you know? And I didn't break it, I just... pushed it with enough force than it opened despite it being locked! You just gotta place it again, and maybe buy new hinges, but that's all! I could even do it myself if I had the tools!"
Not today, however. Today was Halloween!
"And what with me looking like a human? That's actually my costume! You'd be surprised at how many digimons in here think humans are scary! I've even been given preemptive candy for having a good idea? I'm just that smart!" She managed to smirk a little at his joke, however. "And, what do you know about fashion, anyway? You only wear armors or go stark naked. It'd be like a deaf giving his opinion about music, don't you think?"
Sometimes, Kyo wondered how Squire could do those tasteless jokes without qualms. Eating dogs just sounded gross, man. Doggos are for hugs, not for foods. Even if she tried to ignore those comments, knowing fully well that she'd probably take that Dukemon head-on, she preferred to go towards happier stuff. Like dragging Squire out of his house to have fun!
"We're going to go and celebrate Halloween, Squire." Kyo's tone was slightly menacing and equal parts determined. If being cute didn't work, she'd have to resort to cruder methods. "Otherwise your house will be left without other things, sides the door, you know? Besides, it'll be a lot of fun! And we can sleep together afterwards, too! It isn't like we can't do both things, right?"
Seems like we had two people that were a bit too naive today.
"So, get up, dress up and let's go! I'll tell you about the place we're about to visit! It's reaaaaally cool!"

Squire couldn't help but groan in response to Kyo's boundless enthusiasm, already feeling fatigued under her sunny disposition. He didn't wanna go trick or treating or whatever the heck kids did during Halloween. Nap, he wanted to nap! But of course, Kyo didn't know the joys of sleeping. Hyper as she was, she probably hadn't over slept a day in her life.
He was actually beginning to feel sorry for her.,
"Humans are meh. You look better as pup anyways." He said offhandedly, waving his hand dismissively as he jumped down from his high bed. Landing besides her easily enough, he stretched his arms over his head tiredly, yawning as he moved towards the closet. Looking over his shoulder, he threw the puppy a smirk before throwing the closet open, revealing it fool of Suspiciously Middle eastern clothing.
Cause he basically lived in the digital world's interpretation of an ancient Middle east state crossed with Persia.
"Excuse you. You are the one dressed in those tasteless human rags. Honestly, how can you walk in public while wearing those? I actually feel second hand embarrassment." The basis of their friendship was set around their ability to jab, taunt, tease and generally insult one another without any actual sting to their words. "Yeah yeah, I'm aware; you'll be whining all day until I give up anyways.But we better be in bed before Midnight; Can't wait to get you into bed." With any luck, she wouldn't be anywhere near as hyper while asleep. He wasn't crossing his fingers for that one, though.
Scratching at the back of his head, Squire stared at his closet, before ultimately throwing it close. "Well, I don't have anything that could be a costume. What have you got, pup?"
"Well, of course I look better as a digimon! No cybernetic enhancement can make me more beautiful than what I already am; that should be obvious as of yet!" She said, beaming proudly. "I'm probably the cutest and most beautiful digimon, while at it! Pity there aren't any beauty contests in here, or I'd be rich as of yet."
Of course, all these playful jabs and more were just harmless jokes. The fact that Squire was a hard bone to gnaw sometimes got on Kyo's nerves, but he also eventually ended giving up to her whims, so that was fine, she guessed.
"No, excuse you. These rags, as you call them, are the epitome of my clothing selection skills, and while human clothing is weird per se, they're the finest rags for this appearance. And no aloha snackbars from your side will make me think otherwise, you know? Keep your bombs for yourself."
Smiling widely, she was glad they finally got to action! Let's see, what had Kyo brought has clothing? She handed the digimon four devices; all of them were holosuits.
"Well, this one is easy! You basically get...! All of Yuu's sister's partner's human appearances, and one I did myself! In fact, I think it'd fit extremely tastefully on you!"
I didn't take a genius to guess that the holosuit was a toonish version of CaptainHookmon. Now the choice was Squire's.

"Wow there, I never said anything about beautiful." He snarked as he started to fiddle with his pajamas, unbuttoning the first few buttons while looking over his shoulder playfully. "I said you looked better. Given that you look like a human right now, that's not exactly an incredible feat, ya know?" Have I mentioned that Squire doesn't like humans?
"You are pretty cute though, that said." He admitted casually, fully unbuttoning his pajama shirt and throwing it over his shoulder. "You got a set of rags marginally better than the average set of rags. Congrats." He insulted immediately after. "What kind of snack bar is that, anyways? Like Tropical flavored or something?"
Turning to face Kyo, his brow tilted slightly at offered selection, looking fairly unimpressed at her as he crossed his arms over his chest. "Why the heck would I want to dress like a human? Don't you have anything more traditional? Like an actual pirate costume or something. Even if Pirates are totally lame. You did this on purpose, didn't you?" He accused, pouting at her as he reached for the Holo suits. Even after having protested against them, he knew he didn't really have a choice at this point.
"A ninja would have been way better, you know." He grumbled, staring at the holo suit device for a second... before looking back up at her. "Uh... I've never actually used one of these before." He admitted sheepishly, twirling the device deftly on his fingers before bringing it closer to his face, starting to fiddle with the buttons. The more he attempted to activate the device, the more endangered the small gizmo seemed.
"Don't worry, I'll get this at some point." He promised with a small frown, his left eye twitching slight, looking ready to chuck it to the ground.
"You're an ass, you knew? I don't know what tacit agreement you have with Yuu, but her personality is starting to rub off you, you know? I still remember the innocent Squire that was all about being nice and obeying his superiors. Pity that that's now spoiled, ain't it?"
Maybe Squire had just been always this way and his so-called "master" just kept that attitude in check. In any case, he was a lot funnier that way, even though Kyo would probably not say that out loud, at least in a situation like this.
"You still have a long way to go though. But at least I can say you're making some progress!" She gave him a cheeky smile when he mentioned that ninjas were better than pirates, however. "Well, of course ninjas are better than pirates! That's precisely why I didn't bring the ninja costume, of course!"
In all honesty, she didn't care if Squire figured out how to use the holosuit or not, what mattered now was that...
"Now, don't fall behind! Leeeeeeeeet's goo~!" Taking the Veemon's hand, she began to run, towards the exit excitedly, eventually dragging the Veemon towards an unknown destination. Well, unknown for Squire.

"I've been told." he replied airily, still fiddling with the holosuit like some kind of technology-challenged baboon. Why was it so hard? Literally everyone used it. He wasn't technology challenged or anything, so what gives?!
"Honestly, how the heck do you make this work...?!" He hissed under his breath as he began to press and fiddle more roughly with the device. He was growing swiftly annoyed with the device's stubbornness. At this rate, he would definitely "I swear to Yggdrasil...! I will break this piece of scrap metal!!!" He finally growled, throwing the Holosuit across the room and onto his bed.
"Forget the holosuit! It ain't worth it if it ain't a ninja anyways!" He said, stomping his way back to his closet and throwing it wide open. Immediately after he stepped inside, before slamming it back shut. The sound of rummaging and trashing was heard for a full minute before the door was once again thrown wide open, Squire stepping out of it in a rather... risque(?) outfit.
"There. A costume. I'm gonna have candy raining on me; Let's rol- Woah!" The little dragon didn't even get to finish his sentence before the puppy had somehow seized his arm, dragging him out of the home by literally jumping right outta the window.
"Oh jeez, you realize we have a door, don't y-" As she dragged him across the entrance of the home, he dully noticed the wooden door lying on the floor, the hinges scattered across the floor haphazardly after having been basically punched off. "Well, we had one." He finished irritably, still getting dragged across the floors of the Golden City.
"Yo, you don't intend to drag me across the entire city, right? Wait, where are we going? You don't know this city!"
"Eh, what do you mean I don't know where I'm going?" Kyo asked back, surprise obvious in her voice. "Of course I know where I'm going! What do you think, that I'm reckless or something?"
She probably didn't need that one answered. Well, not that she cared, in any case. Of course, their first destination was ... the house just across Squire's, the course of action being knocking loudly enough until the door was answered.
"Trick or treat! I'm a human, so I'll forcefully abduct you out of your life and make it miserable if you don't give me candy!" Kyo's tone was definitely half cheery, half outright creepy when she said out those words. It made a good impression that something was just wrong in her head. Not like that mattered, though.
The tiny Thunderballmon that had just answered the door shivered in utter fear before handing the goods. It had work out!
"Thankyouverymuch, sir! Hopefully I'll see you next year!" And happily, she continued to drag Squire to all the nearby houses along Eldoradimon. "See, it's very fun! Why don't you try it yourself now?"
And that's how the routine began. They went far and wide through Eldoradimon until, by utter accident they found themselves in the turtle's underbelly. Its figurative underbelly, not its literal one.
"Well, I think this is rather awkward. But at least we got tons of candy! Have you enjoyed yourself? Because this is just the beginning!"

Honesty Check: Pass. [+2 Honesty]
"I mean exactly what I said! Your sense of direction sucks!" He threw flatly at her, having seemingly grown accustomed to getting dragged over the asphalt. He snorted in amusement as Kyo kept the charade going. "Is that a rhetorical question?"
He was still gonna give her a straight out yes. Instead, he found himself cursing loudly as Kyo dragged him all the way to the home across from his, banging the back of his head against the doorstep. While Kyo trick or threatened his Thunderballmon neighbor, Squire rubbed at his scalp furiously and hissed under his breath, already wondering why the heck he had come. He was only more or less listening to the one sided conversation, snorting at her rather accurate representation of Human-Digimon partnership.
"Wow." He started as casually as he could, "You are surprisingly aware of your situation." He said simple, giving her a look from the corner of his eye. He didn't think 'partnered' digimon could realize just how deeply sucky their situation was. Yuu was... fine, for a human. But she was literally a credit to humanity, so she didn't count.
As his shaken neighbor handed the goods to the puppy, Squire rolled his eyes, "Fun isn't exactly the word I would use to describe that." He said bluntly, pursing his lips at her as he placed both hands on his hips. "Hope you ain't too proud, by the way. That was a bit mean." The last thing the Knights needed was for the citizens to start screaming about humans on Halloween's eve.
"The Citizens of Eldoradimon are super paranoid about humans. Mr. Thunderballmon will probably not be sleeping tonight. And he will be all gossipy in the morning..." And the last thing HE needed was for his name to become associated with humans.
Just for these reasons, he decided to take Kyo's offer. "Okay, but you can't say anything! And let's try and stay in the good part of the city, okay? Wouldn't wanna end up in the-" "- Underbelly." He grumbled, his face set into pure irritation as he stood besides Kyo. Music seemed to blast in the distance, a building shining in a multicolored light show. Some party, likely.
Squire wanted no part in it.
"How the heck did we even get here?" He mumbled, his brow twitching slightly. "I was enjoying myself." And then this happened. "The beginning? When are we going to sleep?"
"Eh? My situation? That's a funny one, Squirey!" The Plotmon said between giggles, almost as if the swordsman had told her a hilarious joke. "I just gotta make sure that Yuu's in one piece by the end of the day, then I can do mostly as I please! I mean, that's probably as good as a partnership can get, to be honest; especially when compared to those people who force their digimons to stand still like plushies while other kids bother them around! Well, that among other things; totally not cool, don't you think?"
Or at least that's how she saw it; she felt kind of lucky about her partner being so liberal with her sneaking out and into the Digital World mostly by herself when Yuu used her time in stuff like school and other activities. Due to that freedom, she'd been able to meet other digimons and people, just like she met Squire. And also educate other chumps in how to actually fight.
Now, back into topic! Eldoradimon's underbelly was... rather normal for an underbelly; shady digimons, a lot of darkness and dubious wares being sold at prices that seemed to be either too cheap or too expensive; but that was totally fine! Kyo found it somewhat cozy, in all fairness.
"Of course it's the beginning! Now let's move out! I found an awesome place you're surely dying to visit!" Again, dragging the dragon around like she was a ragdoll under they were in front of a strange-looking well. "Lookie! I discovered this place like four years ago while I was going through my routine leisure walk! It's really fun! You jump in, then something reaally strange happens. So, ready!?"
Again, she took Squire's hand in hers, and edging into the well's edge, stared back into the deep darkness beneath.
"Alright. One, two, three! BANZAIIIIII~~~!!!"
And thus, she jumped into it. They were probably a good fifteen or so minutes of freefall, but once it ended, the two digimons found themselves right in the center of Hachiko Square, sharing said square with lots of other digimons who had gone through the same gateway.
"TA-DA! Wasn't that great, Squirey? Now we're on the Human World!"
