I'm Not That Bad, I Swear! (Asher) Dec 20, 2016 5:47:54 GMT

The innuendo flew right over Elliot's head, but Isaac found himself blushing slightly. Of all the ways to phrase that, did Asher really need to use that one? Then again, at this point, Isaac was pretty sure Asher had a dictionary of innuendos wedged in his brain, so it really wasn't worth challenging the point. Nevertheless, Elliot smiled patiently. "That's okay. I'm sure the train ride will give him a chance to rest. And even if not, he's clever. I know he'll think of something," Elliot said, giving his brother a pat on the shoulder.
At Ms. Fluffykins' inquiry, Elliot shot her a curious look. "I mean, I could," he said, looking down at his feet a little from embarrassment. "But truth be told, I'm not as comfortable with changing as Isaac is. I generally just wait until he does, or until I need to. It's just easier that way." See, Isaac? That's how you set a boundary! In some ways, just coming out and admitting it could really be the easiest option. "Maybe I'll do it when we get to the Digital World, if Isaac's still not feeling up to it by then."
Isaac grinned a little at Asher's reaction to the Trailmon. "Oh, trust me, you never really get used to it. And the fact that the public transportation's alive can make things kinda complicated sometimes," Isaac clarified. "Like the time Elliot and I got home way past bedtime because the terminal was shut down for a Trailmon birthday party. You ever see a train eat cake? 'Cause there's something I'm never gonna be able to unsee."
"Thankfully, it feels like time's a bit slower in the Digital World, so we didn't end up too far behind schedule. Mom was still really mad, though," Elliot clarified. Those were the kinds of questions that might have been helpful to answer for Asher in the first place!
"Right! Forgot the two big differences between home and the Digital World. That's one, and the other's that electronics don't really work nearly as well. If you're lucky you'll nab a stray signal, but phones are gonna be dead, radios are gonna be scrambled, and good luck finding a charge if a battery-powered device dies on you," Isaac added. "Beyond that, it'll be surprisingly familiar. Air's still breathable, words are still comprehensible, food's still delicious. You'll adapt easy.
So, assistant, huh? Sounds like that's gonna be a fun story."
"Ooh, ooh, tell me too! I love stories!" Worm added. By now the brothers and their new plus one would've been inside of the Trailmon, so there was really no escape from its poking and prying. Good luck, Asher!
