The Lalamon huffed, a sound like wind whistling echoing through its mouth hole. "I'm trying to tell you, kid," the Lalamon pleaded. "It's not an angel, it's a sham! And if you keep falling for its disguise, you're gonna be just like all the other kids that fall down here. I don't know how much time I have, so please li-"
"Akemi?" Elliot's voice echoed down the hall, the Lalamon visibly jumping at the sound. "The way ahead seems clear, fortunately. Have you been well?"
Immediately the Lalamon's propeller spun up, the bud starting to hover off of the ground. "And that's my cue to leave," he said. "Sorry to leave you alone, here, but I am not letting that thing see me! But I'll be keeping an eye on you, okay? And just in case that thing decides to try and get you sooner rather than later . . ." The Lalamon's voice trailed off as it pulled up one of its petal-like folds. After rooting around for a second, it produced a small, sharpened stick and tossed it to Akemi. Hopefully, its usage would be clear.
The door to the hall opened, and by the time Elliot walked in the Lalamon had dashed away. "My apologies for taking so long," he said. "There was a Bakemon blocking the way out, but I convinced it to leave. Hopefully.
Akemi regarded the flower's words with caution. Wariness. Fortunately, a familiar voice was heard! Elliot. And with that the flower left but not before tossing her...
Clearly, this was the most valuable weapon. Akemi and Fuzzball were left looking at it which was likely a really peculiar sight for Elliot when he walked in. She looked up and nodded. "It's fine, but...Another question, sorry. The heck's a Bakemon?"
"Buhbuhbuhbuhbuhbuhbuhbuhbuhbuhbuhbuhbuhbuhbuhbuh." Fuzzball attempted to explain in the language of Buh.
But it didn't really work. "...Also, uh...Question for the walk, too. Is there a talking flower that lives around here?"

Maybe a more aware person would have been curious about the stick, but fortunately Elliot was both naive and trusting. It was probably just something Akemi had found on the floor and was playing around with while Elliot was gone, right? He knew very well how boring just waiting around in the ruins could be.
At least the main question on the girl's mind was what a Bakemon was. "It is like a bedsheet ghost," Elliot explained simply. "You know, like on Halloween? Except a bit less cute looking. They talk scary, but they are really mostly harmless. This one really enjoys floating up and down the ruins spooking people, so I figured I would ask him to stop so he did not startle you. He was . . . certainly putting up a hard bargain." Yes, Elliot had been gone all this time haggling with a ghost. Only in the Digital World, folks.
As he started to walk through the ruins, he turned to Fuzzball and Akemi curiously upon their other questions. Or, more accurately, question and buh-ing. "I cannot say I have seen many flowers around here," Elliot admitted. "The harsh sun and lack of water are not kind to most plant Digimon. And the ruins are quite dark and desolate, too."
After his explanation he turned to Fuzzball, voice soft and patient. "Is everything alright? You were rather talkative there," he asked, wondering just what would make a baby buh so much.
Wait, what? A bedsheet ghost? "...Y'know, I wanna doubt that but you're probably right." "BUH." "...See, Fuzzball agrees." Both tamer and (newborn) digimon nodded. "Hard bargain? Did he ask for a bunch of candy or something...?" That's probably a dumb question, nobody knew what they could ask for.
But they were harmless. Just scary.
Anywho. Not many flowers? "How come there was a...A..." Akemi trailed off. What was it's name? Lala the...Lalamon? "A Lalamon here, then? One that...claimed some really awful stuff, too. It's name was Lala."
"Buuh..." Fuzzball nodded. Seems that was the question it wanted to ask, but...couldn't, thanks to being verbally impaired.

"I doubted it too, if it helps," Elliot admitted. "But it was one of the first sorts of Digimon that I had seen. It appeared in the human world, and my brother basically improvised his way into haunting it. So I promise, at least they are not very threatening." The Digital World was a weird place, and sometimes Elliot didn't realize how weird it sounded until after he had described it. "I promise, it is not always so weird around here. Although sometimes it is even weirder."
That said, the weirdness at least made sense. A Lalamon in the middle of the desert? Now that was a stretch. Elliot let out a slight hum, wings fanning absentmindedly as he tried to think about what a Lalamon would even be doing here. "I do not think I've seen a plant Digimon around these parts before, barring the occasional cactus," he admitted. "But I have seen stranger Digimon come here for shelter. I mean, there is a newborn here, is there not? So I do not think you would have any reason to lie about it.
What did the Lalamon say? You seem . . . unnerved."
Haunting it as in haunting the Bakemon...? How do you haunt a ghost? At this rate Akemi was starting to take Elliot's words for...well, truth.
But, more pressing matters were at hand. Desert or not that Lalamon was -definitely- here and up to something. Akemi couldn't fathom why the angel didn't...well, know anything. Maybe the Lalamon itself was the evil one.
Regardless, it was time to make like an upstanding citizen and rat the plant out. "Stuff like you being a sham and a monster and the like that snatches girls up and away. Basically....it was slander. Yeah." Elliot -was- right. She was pretty unnerved. After all, who was right? The angel? Or the flower?
"Buh." Even Fuzzball couldn't tell who to believe, and Fuzzball's just a Botamon!
