Jack was lugging around the egg, it was frigid cold in his cloth backpack. He was trying his best to keep it from being obvious but anyone who looked in his general direction could tell that the large, oval shaped bulge in his backpack was NOT normal and anyone who had any idea of the Digital World, which at any level of knowledge would be more than him at the moment, would be able to tell that it was a shivering, shaking Digiegg. Jack has tried to keep it from being able to be seen that he's lugging around the egg, even as he's going to the half dozen different classes he had in that early morning. He'd woken up leaning over the egg, snuggling up to it to keep it warm as it shivered and shook. he felt little bumps and buzzes and mewls coming form it like a puppy or a kitten so he knew it was alive and that was just about all he knew. Now he wandered to the cafe on campus and was just hoping to keep something down for long enough to not starve the day way without the jumping, jittering and dancing of the egg to give him away. he just needed to make it to the cafe, order, pay and eat and then he'd go home and...maybe actually think about what the HELL was going on
Amsel yawned, today was defiantly a very boring day, it had started out with her and her partner digimon dorumon waking up and while she prepared to go to school he got his holoform ready. Once they were ready, amsel managed to get her partner out of the door with out her mother knowing. Once out she had doru wait for her in a near by store while she went to her class, were she promptly fell asleep, one long and lecture filled class later she and the kids were released. Amsel picked up doru and both proceeded to walk around campus hoping to catch one of their friends.
After a while however doru started to get hungry and both had made their way into a near by cafe. Just as the duo were getting in line they had spotted a rather oddly shaped backpack on a male student , they would have wrote it off as a new popular backpack that was in style, if it hadnt been shaking. Even doru had lifted up his sunglasses in order to see the backpack better. Both tamer and digimon looked at each other before amsel grinned wildly causing her partner to start sweating, doru silently preyed to fanglongmon to have mercy on the human male that had unfortunately caught his partners attention. Amsel wasted no time, she grabbed her partners arm and dragged him towards jack. Looks like this boring day wasn't going to be as boring as amsel thought.
Jack looked over at her as she approached, seeming to be dragging something or someone along with her as he sat at one of the empty table, looking at a menu as he traded glances up at the woman and down at his choices of food, petting the egg in his bag softly. It had been more and more jumpy throughout the day and he had noticed the outside beginning to crack and chip so he was trying to coax whatever was inside out by softly petting it and cooing encouragement toward his bag.
"It's ok little guy...I'm right here when you wake up." He looked up and noticed the girl was much closer than earlier so his hand darted out of his bag and he gave her a tired smile. "Hey, miss. Can I help you?" He interlocked his fingers on the table, the bags under his eyes were dark and noticeable against his otherwise very pale skin. He made a very quick motion to zip up his bag, his heart racing as the girl simply continued her approach to him.
Amsel smiled at jack, once she had arrived at his table she let her partner go, he stumbled but managed to catch himself before falling. Amsel was a light taned teen, she had black curly hair thats always tied into a pony tail, her hair contains red highlights. Her outfit consists of black t-shirt under a short sleeved hoody, the hoody is black with a crimson red outline, she has camo shorts that reach up to her knees, complete with iron toed combat boots.On her hands she has black fingerless gloves with red lining, the gloves have a red dragon on top of the hand. She has a red bandana tied around her neck, silver steampunk goggles perched on her head.
Her partner doru at the moment had his holosuit on making him appear human, Dorumons holosuit has tan skin and black hair cut into a mohawk, it has purple highlights, he still has honey golden eyes. He wears a short open vest with short sleeves, the color is purple with black highlights, Under the vest he wears a white shirt. He wears camo pants complete with black combat boots, and as a nice touch amsel gave doru sunglasses.
Amsel Grined wider at jack after hearing his greeting and asking if they needed help "nope!, but I was wandering whats in your bag?" She asked with a bit of excitement, stars seemed to have appeared in her eyes, she seemed to have avery heavy German accent to her voice. Her partner looked at her and sighed, he used sign language to apologize to jack for his tamers behavior.
He looked up at her and looked down at himself. He was a mess, dressed in a ruffled white t-shirt and jeans with a tear in the right knee. He looked over at the bag and groaned, wiping his eyes and pulling it up on the table before unzipping it slightly, revealing the shivering, bouncing egg inside.
"Honestly? I have no idea..." He says, laying his cheek in his hand. "I answered this weird phone call and my phone got squished into this weird thing and this little guy appeared in front of me. other than that I can't tell you what the hell it is or what the hell is even going on." He looks up at her, his better nature making him say it all totally honestly before zipping the bag back up.
He turned to the man and just shrugged, he didn't understand sign language so he had no idea what was being said by the man.
"So, if you could please enlighten me as to what my new state of parenthood means. Why it happened to me and what's actually happening...I would owe you one hell of a favor..."
Amsel being amsel watched intently and squeal when she say the egg, there was no doubt about it jack was going to be a tamer. The only thing that indicated dorus surprise were his eyebrows that had risen up in surprise from behind his sunglasses. Amsel listen to jack as he explained how he had gotten the egg, after he was done she nodded. So her hunch was correct, he was a newly chosen tamer, welp it was a good thing they had entered here when they did. Amsel could still remember when she was chosen to be the partner for dorumon, it really had caught her off guard and if it wasn't for shi she would have gone thru this blindly.
Now it was her turn to help out a new tamer and introduce him to the responsibility that came with being a tamer. With that amsel smiled at jack "no problem!, i'd be happy to explain! can i please sit here?" she asked as she gestured to the two other seats in the table jack was sitting at.
He nods, gesturing with his head and droopy eyes toward the seat across from him.
"Go nuts." He places his hand back in the egg, petting it softly and yawning, his eyes looked positively sunken from the lack of sleep the previous night as he suddenly felt something slick and warm touch his hand through the cold outer shell, feeling like something was licking him before the egg shell crumbles, revealing the tiny white Pitchmon as it peaked it head out of the zipper of his bag, making a tiny cute squeak before settling back into Jacks hand motions, still wanting his petting. "Ok...that's adorable...From how cold your egg was and how little and white you are...I'mma name you Snowcone." He said continuing to lather affection on the creature.
Amsel felt bad for jack, he looked so tired and worn out, she frowned was he worried about the egg or was school life taking a toll on the young man. Amsel took a seat and motioned for doru to sit to, she stayed quiet for a moment thinking seriously how she was going to break the news to the young man. Just when she had decided what to say she was silenced when she noticed that the egg was hatching, her eyes grew wide and stars seemed to sparkle in them "omg so cute!" she yelled slightly less loud then normal, her partner facepalmed.
Silently promising her self to ask later if she could hold the newly named snowcone, she cleared her throat and looked at jack a serious look adorned her face, this caught her partner off guard it was rare to see amsel serious. "first things first, my names amsel d rosa" she introduced herself, then gestured to the teen beside her "this is doru, my partner digimon". At this doru looked at her like she had just spoken a tabu, sure this guy had a digimon even if he didnt know it yet, but that didnt mean she could reveal what he was, what if he didnt believe her. Doru sunk low in his seat, why did his tamer have to be so reckless.
He looked over at her and pulled Pitchmon out of him bag, cupping it in one hand and petting ti with the other.
"Nice to meet you..." He nods at Amsel and then to Doru. "You both." He seemed to take the statement without any question, a combination of his overall better nature and his supreme feeling of exhaustion.
Snowcone looked up and her and wiggled slightly further into Jack grip, letting out uncertain grumbles as he took note of his new surroundings, at once wondrously enthralled by it all and timid at his first glimpses of the outside world, Jack seeming to calm the small creature with his strong grip and his continued cooing words.
"Shhh...shhh...you're ok...I'm right here I'm right here." He placed Snowcone on his right legs, softly snuggling the creature against the faded denim of his jeans and petting its head, the Digimon curling up against the blue fabric and closing it's eyes again.
It took all of amsels self control to keep from scooping up the fresh level digimon, and cuddling with it, it was so cute!. She was snapped out of her thoughts when she had heard jacks voice, she smiled and spoke "ok this little guy is called a digimon" she had just decided to go straight to the point, if he had questions she would answer them in more detail. "this little guy barley hatched from his egg meaning that hes in his fresh stage"
Doru was half listening to what his human partner explain to jack what snowcone was, he glanced around making sure that there were no humans listening in on their conversation. He had caught a few in the act of trying to eves drop but a quick heated glare sent their way had them turning around faster then amsel could say cool in her native tong.
Snowcone looked up at her and snuggled deeper into Jack's palm. It seemed to him imprinted on him somewhat, instictivley trusting the sound of his voice and the touch of his hand but not being quite used to all the light and wind and noise all around it like a blind kitten just born.
Jack nodded, following along. his order of some eggs and homefries coming over to him, Snowcone hidden under his hand so he wasn't noticed. Snowcone perked up at the smell of the fresh food and whimpered softly, Jack taking a homefry in his hand and popping it like a balloon in his hand, holding out the mushy potato to Snowcone on two hands, the Digimon's toothless proto-beak snapping it up.
"Ok, Digimon. Cool. And it has a lifecycle. Also cool." She said, continuing to feed the monster popped potato while he used his free hand to scoop up the scrambled eggs, finally feeding himself. His eyes go wide as he realizes what he's doing. "Oh my god!" He pulls his fingers away from Snowcone. "What does he eat? Did I just poison him?" He said, the worry in his voice thick like syrup
Amsel nodded, happy that he so far didn't have any questions she continued "digimon have 6 forms, fresh, in training, rookie, champion ulimate and mega, your digimon is going to go thru the in training level and stop at rookie" she said as she watched jack feed the fresh digimon some soft fry. Amsel was about to explain more whwn jack suddenly freaked out because he didnt know what digimon ate. She stared at him for a long moment before breaking out laughing.
Her partner looked at her and let out a silent sigh, pushing his sunglasses up on his head revealing kind honey colored eyes and sent an apologetic look to the new tamer. Doru took out a note book and quickly wrote out a message showing it to jack
Im sorry about my tamer, she can be rather.......blunt and no you didn't poison, we can eat human food and digital food alike.
He sighs and nods, letting out a long sigh. He continues to feed the small Digimon and petting it, the creature upset by his sudden shouting, calming down with his soft patting. he continues to eat, listening closely to her words and giving a soft nod toward Dorumon.
"It's fine, I imagine that if you've been doing this a while that all of my concerns may sound a tad silly." He chuckles softly, a not small amount of embarrassed blush coming to his pale cheeks. "So if they stop at Rookie...how do they get beyond that?" He said, turning to Amsel again.
After a moment or two she managed to calm herself as jacks question processed in her mind, with a final inhale and exhale she answered his question. "thats a good question, you see in order to reach their other more powerful forms you need this" she took out her purple and while digivice, putting it on the table "and your emotions, its kinda hard to explain but how you bond with your partner and trust depends on how they will digivole".
She stopped in order for jack to digest this odd piece of information, she really didn't understand it well herself but at lest she tried to explain it.
He took out his own small purple and black Digivice, nodding in time with her explanation, just drinking it all in.
Snowcone looked up, just barely making out the shape of Amsel behind the edge of the table, for the first time really considering the woman. he whimpered toward Jack with his tiny flippers pointed up until Jack raised him and set him gently on the smooth plastic table, the chill of the sudden texture change made Snowcone shiver as he looked Amsel over, making small quizzical squeaks and pips.
