A lone digimon shivered in pure fear as the black agumon stalked closer, its claws buring with a blue light. The digimon back up as the other digimon advanced, its green eyes were slits and it let put a growl. The digimon looked to the human controling the digimon with pleading eyes, but he was only met with a cold stare. Just as his back hit a tree, he realized there was no escape. The little lopmons eyes teared up and he collapsed on his knees "p-please let me g-go, i-im sorry i-i promise to n-never ambush a-anyone ever again" he pleaded.
How things had gotten to this point in time was mostly the little bunny digimons falt. Himand his friends had tryed to ambush aeron and her partner bones. What the little digimon didnt know was that aeron and bones were on another level. This lone lopmon was the only serviver of his group of friends. Aeron smiply made a face "im tried of staring at your pathetic face, bones delete it like the rest" she said voive void of emotion. With a snap of her fingers the black agumon acted. He roared and stabed his claw thru the screaming digimons chest. The lopmon burst into data, which black agumon began to down load. Aeron watched unamused this was getting tire some, they had already deleted and uploaded yet bones was showing no signs of evolving to a stronger form.
Aeron truned to look around the forest, it was odldly quiet maybe the screams from that pathetic pieve of data scared them all away she thought to herself.
Katsura was walking through the forest again, in her arms she was carrying Nyao the Blackgatomon. Why she was so drawn to the forest that she kept going back there, she didn't know. Today she saw something disturbing, a seemly innocent digimon was running for its life as a black agumon was hunting it. At first Katsura was willing to let it go under the assumption that the food-chain also applied to digimon. But this theory was quickly debunked as Katsura saw a girl in white ordering the black agumon to kill. The digimon screamed in pain while Katsura could do nothing about it but staring, then silence.
Katsura kept staring with an equally unamused expression, no actually, there wasn't any emotion to sense in her face at all. In her regular dull voice, Katsura said to Aeron:
"Why did you kill the digimon?"
For now Nyao just observed the situation without bringing too much attention to herself.
Aeron wasnt startled by the voice but she was rather surprised, she didnt think another human would be really far in this forest. She turned and simply stared at katsura and the black gatomon in her arms. Of coruse her own partner was the one to speak up first. He had finished uploading the digimons data and had over hear the other human question his master, of course he took offense to that. "How dare you question masters actions!" he shouted as he ran to aerons side "its none of your business anyway human!, so why dont you just leave" he growled out. Aeron said nothing but after a while she was growing tired of her digimons voice, "bones sit" she said, immediately the agumon shut up and sat down.
aeron then turned her back her attention to katsura "they thought they could ambush us as we passed thru, they got int over their heads" she answered, normally she would just ignore the question and be on her way but she was rather borad at the moment. "i merely played by their rules"
Katsura didn't react much, if at all to the black agumons rant. If she didn't maintain eye contact, you won't be blamed for thinking that Katsura didn't heard anything at all. Afterwards, her response to Bone was extremely short and unimpressed:
"She is not my mistress."
Nyao reacted by looking up sending Katsura an questioning look to which Katsura nodded. Then Nyao suddenly spoke to Bone in a very cold voice devoid of friendliness. "Don't ever talk to Katsura like that." The cat was now stalking Bone with her eyes leaving no doubt that this was not a suggestion.
Katsura has little sympathy for Aeron's justification for her actions.
"Rules? That digimon was running away in fear. Even if you are correct, you killed it when it begged for mercy without question. You didn't have to murder it but you did anyway. You think you're above consequences?"
The black agumon let out a low angry growl, eyes turning to slits, he took that as a direct challenge. How ever before he could do anything, a warning glare from aeron kept him in place. Once aeron was sure that bones wasn't going to do something reckless, she turned her attention back to katsura "of course not, I just merely helping my own grow stronger, there is always a consequence no matter what we do" she said answering with a dead voice.
As she spoke, her empty green eyes sized up the other girl with a critical eye, she was a person to take as much data from a person as possible, even if it was just observing body language. Bones was listening to his master but at the same time kept an eye on the black gatomon, he could risk aeron getting hurt again like last time.
Aeron wasn't the only one who sent Bone a warning glare, so did Nyao. It was one of those glares that went straight through your soul. Nyao was not a Guilmon, if Bone was to fight, she would not hold back. Nyao was also acting restless while Katsura in turn "suddenly" had the weakest arms in the world all while saying half-assed and unmotivated one-liners like; "No", "stop", "calm down". Unsurprisingly, such an lazy and heartless approach to keeping her partner under control had very little effect on containing the hostility Nyao displayed towards Bone and Aeron.
Katsura likewise was still not the slightest bit moved by Bone's display of aggression, to her this was like a joke which was funny once yet for some reason told a thousand times. Reading Katsura's body language was a waste of time, aside from the lazy attempt on controlling her partner there was no language in her to sense.
Instead, Katsura focused on Aeron's words. "Stronger? Is this just a game to you? Did you know that most of my friends are digimon? That if I let you continue on your genocide unopposed you'll inevitably hurt and perhaps kill someone I care about? That digimon are living beings and as intelligent as you and I?"
Aeron was displeased with the fact that reading the others body language was a lost cause, it appeared to her that the guman was even to lazy to move any part of her body, or she was confadent in her ability as a tamer, that would be very bad news for her and bones . With a mental click of her tung she focused back on the others face after hearing her speech, aeron merely shrugged "intelligent or not, it dosent matter to me, everythings a game to me" she said as she met eyes with the other tamer " our lives are, we simply try to see who can become more famuse, richer by the end of them. Even if it means using the people around you then throwing them out like trash, i merely want to see how far i can go before death claims me"
Bones was not happy with having to sit and wait, he was so close to digivolving, he could feel it. However if his master wanted him to stay in place he will. That didnt stop him however from digging his claws into the soft dirt bellow him after gatomon hade given him a rather nasty glare.
That was a depressing conversation, Aeron just confirmed that she didn't care about anything or anyone except for power. Katsura made a sigh in disappointment. "I see, you don't care about others. You don't care about the pain you cause... that makes me sad. I guess, I always get that feeling mixed up." It appeared that on top of not displaying emotions Katsura did not understand them either. Katsura took one look at Bone before answering the overall message. Katsura didn't feel like putting an effort in maintaining a fake front, so instead Aeron got to see the real deal: A girl with little to no emotion who was speaking slowly in a monotone voice. Maybe the lack of reaction was a body language by itself? "Just because you have power it doesn't mean you should use it. I tried using others... taking advantage of being a tamer but... I felt nothing... being alone... unloved... it's not worth it. That's when I became friends with all sorts of digimon and occasionally their partners. I don't want to hurt you... Your partner... anyone. Please, stop this"
For now Nyao was idle but not relaxed, she kept her eyes on Bone. As obedient as that blackAgumon behaved he seemed like a loose cannon and in the event of an attack, Nyao was not planning to be surprised.
Aeron thought for a moment after hearing katsuras little speech, on the outside it looked like the young girl was actually thinking about what the more experienced tamer said, but on in side her mind was working on over drive. This tamer seems to be much more experienced, judging by her words earlier, not to mention there was a threat in the last words she spoke.....As aeron thought about her next move carefully, her partner digimon was less then pleased, however for his masters sake he managed to sit still, he knew that when his master was this quiet it meant she was thinking.
Finally after what seemed like a life time she spoke up, she had decided that for now she would just play along, until she found out more about the other. "very well, how about we make a deal, I cant just change my way of thinking just because someone told me to. So its up to show me what good will come from changing my ways" she said . This shocked her Agumon beyond belief, she was not one to just listen to others or even give them a chance to explain themselves. "m-master you dont have to listen to this human!" he said as he jumped up, however he was silenced once again by a look from aeron. He didnt try to talk his tamer out of this again, she had made decision clear.
This was a relief for Katsura, after going through so much trouble last time it was nice to see that someone really do want to give the digital world a chance. True to Katsura's words she did not like fighting, mostly she steered away from combat whenever possible. Now Katsura finally felt like displaying emotions by making a big smile, whether this was a sincere show of emotion or just for good manners is up to Aeron to decide.
"That's all I ask for."
Though Nyao had her doubts about Aeron's motivation, especially after Bone's utter surprise. She was willing to give Aeron a chance to redeem herself. Thus Nyao reduced her aggressive behavior to just being wary. This time Aeron had succeeded in deescalating the situation, at least for now.
Aeron gave nothing away as she watched katsura smile, she didnt care if it was sincere or not she just wanted to avoid any possable chance of conflict. she just wanted to see how this would play out, and she would be lying if she said she wasnt even a wee bit curious how other people viewed the digital world. All aeron saw were shapes that could talk and breath, to her everyone was an object. Though her problem now was how she would escape this tamer in the future if things went arriy. "Very well with that settled, where in this forest can you show me a good example?"
Bones merely watched the other human and gatomon with nerrowed eyes, much like the gatomon he was less aggressive, but was ready to pounce if they tried anything. From what aeron told him about the human world, its people could be as deceiving and cruel as those in the digital world
Katsura didn't respond per see, a lone plant-like digimon had disguised itself along the trees as a sprout right behind Aeron. Instead of answering, Katsura took out her bento and picked a rice ball. Slowly Katsura approached this fellow with a smile.
"Hey there little friend." Katsura said with a suddenly sweet voice to the sprout. The sprout looked up with terror in the eyes. Before trying to dig itself away. "Nonono, I'm not going to hurt you. Why don't you come out?" she reassured and kneeled before the sprout.
"Agumon will kill me" It muttered meekly. "Don't worry, nobody will hurt you. Look I made it all by myself" Katsura revealed her Rice-ball to the sprout, at first it was nervous but since Katsura just showed it without doing any harm it started eating from her hand. Once it was finished Katsura gave it a hug, suddenly it glowed in her arms and started to grow. "Tanemon digivolve to... Palmon. Thanks" Palmon then happily started walking away. Katsura turned her head towards Aeron.
"I don't think fighting makes your partner evolve, it's the bond you share with them. They grow stronger as your bond tightens."
Aeron looked at katsura as she interacted with another digimon, this one looked like a budding plant, it looked like an in-training level digimon. She watched quietly as katsura assured the digimon that no harm would come to it, she even tried to convince it with a rice ball. Aeron was not very impressed, the little plant looked so pathitic and weak it made her sick, and she didn't know why. Just when aeron was about to try and scare the plant away, katsura huged the digimon and much to aerons serprise it glowed and evolved.
Bones huffed and turned his head, refusing to look at the digimon that katsura was trying to cox over to them. However when a flash of light happened he snapped his attention back quickly over to the digimon and the human, his eyes dilated thinking that the human digivolved her digimon to attack them. He had jumped in front of aeron in a protective stance, only to be shocked the the evolution of the digimon .
Aeron watched as the newly evolved palamon walk away deeper into the forest, she was brought out of mental shock by katsuras voice. Aeron looked at her then down at her feet bonds? she thought to herself.
During all this Nyao was smiling smugly, proud of the way Katsura had matured during her time as a tamer. Non-verbally Nyao was saying "That's my girl!" to Aeron and Bone. Katsura was walking back to Aeron. There she stood and looked at Aeron who seemed to process the experience in her head. Katsura had one statement left before she allowed Aeron to comment.
"I recently heard "tamer" is bad since digimon aren't feral animals who need to be controlled. That's why I'm going with "partners" or, hehe friends for life." Katsura couldn't help herself but petting Nyao on her head to which Nyao purred.
Aeron was brought out of her thoughts by katsura once again, appearntly she much rather preferred partner over the word tamer. She looked at the black gatomon then back at the digimons tamer, she frowned before looking back down at her feet thinking once again. The black agumon, merely stared in the direction that the newly evolved rookie left in. This was confusing to the little minded digimon, he still could not grasp the concept of bonding in order to grow stronger.
aeron took a moment longer before looking back up at katsura "i......i dont understand" she said win genuine confusion.
