DC#1 [Part 2] - A city high above the sky [Boru/Titania]
Post by Katherine Jasso on Jun 18, 2019 5:56:43 GMT
It was only now that the tower was crumbling that the height they had reached became evident to all of those who were high above at the last room of the tower. Unconscious Shonitamons flew everywhere while the structure shattered in pieces and Titania tried to get a hold of all of those rookies who couldn’t fly. They were too many! When the fairy when to reach for a Salamon and the Otamamon who was apparently Gero’s daughter, she would accidentally drop Boru.
The Psychemon, who was still very much asleep, plummeted down along the rest of the building. It was clear Titania was going to go to his rescue but…
Another figure caught him mid-air. The rest of the rookies who Titania was still left to caught started… floating. A layer of purple energy stopping their fall and keeping them afloat.
It was only when they reached the floor and after Titania had yelled in frustration, everyone actually able to decry the creature that had helped the Tinkermon save Boru, and who was approaching her now.
A Lekismon.“A-Are you okay?”
She asked. Then, she squinted. No, of course she wasn’t. In both of her arms, this Lekismon was carrying around four rookies, which she slowly placed on the ground, along with Boru, who she had lying on her back. “That… was a mess.”
She quipped, looking around at the aftermath of the battle. Then, she gazed at Titania again…“Let me just…”
The digimon crouched and put both hands on the Tinkermon, issuing purple waves of energy that just circled around her body. This time, Titania would feel really refreshed, her wounds and all of her body healing every second these waves kept going through her. The curative sensation was a lot stronger than when Veena used her technique, and the fairy was slowly starting to feel as if she had never fought today. This healing powers would probably come as nothing short of amazing to her.“My name is Fei. What's yours?”
The digimon muttered, while all of the rookies started approaching the two female digimon. “I think all of your friends are in one piece.”“Fei!”
Agner approached the group too, carrying Sonia on his arms. The Falcomon was slowly waking up. “I’m sorry. After I was freed, I didn’t have time to check on you.”
The robot added, looking at the healer.
The Lekismon shook her head. “Don’t worry, Agner. That impact freed me too. Which is why I could help your friends here.”
By now, it was evident Fei was Agner’s cellmate, the one who had been freed after the impact caused on the structure by Sonia and the Parrotmon, just like the Metalmamemon.“I’m so glad.”
A smile appeared on Agner’s face. Then, it quickly vanished as he found Titania’s expression. “W-What’s… wrong?”“I think… Mrs. Titania was looking for someone in that room too, wasn’t she? She mentioned something like that.”
Veena merged with the conversation.“It wouldn’t be…”
Fei’s eyes widened.“The Psychemons inside the other cage?”
The same way, Agner was struck by the realization. Titania was looking to save the two Psychemons that Effecmon had stored in her palette.“Uhhh…”
The sound of Boru’s voice made everyone turn their heads to the Psychemon. He was waking up.
Once he reincorporated, his head went everywhere, staring at the debris, the bunch of rookies, Titania back at being a Tinkermon and Sonia back at being a Falcomon.“W---What happened here?”
He asked, a bit startled. So man new faces, too! “Is it over!? Where are Koru and Roru!?”
He directed this question Titania's way.

For better or worse, Boru just went unconscious again. Maybe from flat out exhaustion, maybe from the shock of knowing they had failed.
The crumbling of the tower had left a bunch of wounded Shonitamons. Fei healed them to make sure they didn’t die, only to take them to the authorities, along with that Hyogamon back at the Drunken Ranamon, and that SkullMeramon, both left unconscious because of Tip. The tower seemed to have not left any other survivors, which was weird, considering the group of rookies from the Bayou remembered some baby and in-training digimon who had been abducted too. Did they die during the crumbling? It was likely but… for some reason, that Airdramon who seemed to be working with the bad ways, the one the Pandamon defeated, couldn’t be found either.
According to the rookie’s testimonies, this organization was conducting tests, in order to find ‘the perfect digimon’ by injecting some substances on them. After some analysis from doctors at ElDoradimon, it was confirmed their bodies didn’t seem to have suffered further damage. They were recommended to stay for further examination, but they just wanted to rest and go back home.
Goya was about to have a lot of work, though. The group of seventeen rookies plus Agner, Sonia, Fei, Boru, and Titania, stayed there a couple of days, occupying a good part of the inn. It took some praising, but the Wanyamon was able to get enough rooms for them. Once everyone felt better, at least physically, they would depart.
Sonia evolved and helped everyone get down of the moving city. A while later, they arrived at the Mangrove. Ron was very happy to see Veena, Gero was very happy to see his daughter. Everyone was thrilled to be back. Even though some of the rookies did suggest they threw a party to celebrate, Anger and Sonia decided they shouldn’t. After all, this was not an absolute victory.
Fei, who had been sleeping most of the time after helping heal everyone back at the tower, slowly got out of Sonia’s hut after having dinner. The night was very quiet inside the Mangrove. Some houses still had their lights on. Although she didn’t get to see it before, the place looked a lot livelier now that everyone was back, sharing with their respective families at home.
The Lekismon was looking for someone, though. A couple of digimon, actually. She walked through the swamp, looking for that Tinkermon and the Psychemon. Where were they?
Once she found them, she would approach the duo.
“I feel like I’ve slept for too long.” When she did too much healing at once, she usually ended up exhausted. “Do you plan on telling me your name now? You kind of ignored my question last time. I also think you mistook me for someone else, didn’t you?” She asked.
A pause. “… Are you doing better, now?”

The saying all was said and done could not apply here, sadly. Even though the journey itself had ended with the end of the tower and whatever insidious tests they were conducting there. Titania had remained uncharacteristically quiet for the whole of the couple of days she had remained with the group at ElDoradimon, not wanting to talk to anyone unless spoken to. It was clear her failure had...actually hit her pretty hard.
Two in such a short span of time is not great for the ego, unfortunately. She managed to recover swimmingly well from the physical exhaustion she had suffered during the whole ordeal, thanks to Fei's healing and the rest over the few days. She did lighten up over the course of the stay, but she still seemed downtrodden as all hell.
When they had finally returned to the Mangrove, Titania would've gone to the tree where they had met Ron, with Boru in tow and a D-Terminal in hand. She had been trying to get a hold of Naoko over Tamernet, but...to no avail.
MidsummerMonarch: Hey, bunny girl, you there?
MidsummerMonarch: ...Something bad happened again. I don't know if you're even reading this, but an indicator you're okay would be nice...
The Tinkermon looked up from her D-Terminal and stared at Fei. Had she really ignored her...? "...My apologies." The fairy spoke, shutting the D-Terminal off and setting it next to her. "I thought you were my aunt, to put it lightly. My name is Titania, Daughter of the Sun and the Sea."
Was she doing better, though?
"...Not really. My tamer's not responding to my messages, like usual. Plus everything else that's happened."

“I see…” At their own pace, Fei’s eyes widened at the premise of this Tinkermon actually mistaking her for someone else. It was funny because…
“… You actually remind me of someone I knew. One of my best friends.” For a moment or two, the Lekismon’s eyes went to the ground. Where could Arianna be? Or, actually, the question should be… where could the Erin Zoid Gem be?
“That’s fine. It’s actually good to know your name now.” The rabbit muttered.
Boru was quiet, just sitting next to the fairy, eating one of the fruits that had fallen from the tree. There were so many frustrating and saddening thoughts going through his head that the Psychemon had barely issued any word since they had woken up. He only knew he wanted to be close to Titania. She had slowly become everything he had, after all.
“So you have a tamer. You probably don’t want to talk about it, but… I’m sorry things are not going well between you two.” Slowly, Boru’s gaze went to the digimon speaking to them. She seemed… actually worried about their situation.
“You’re Boru, right?” Before he could notice, Fei had crouched to talk to him from up front. Her look was death-serious. With her hand, she took a piece of the fruit he was eating and put in in her mouth. “It’s just a matter of time before you two find your brothers. I swear."
Now, she gazed at Titania.
"I spoke to Sonia, earlier. She told me everything you went through together." A pause. "I know it's hard to actually see it right now, but... You did an outstanding job." Showing a bit of a smirk, Fei's golden eyes remained affixed onto the fairy. "Excuse me if I'm misjudging you but... you seem like a stubborn one." Now, she stood up and walked towards the fairy. "I don't think you're giving up until you get his brothers back, are you?" She stiffed a quiet laugh.
"I might be able to help you two with that."
Boru's purple eyes just stared at the development. Just like Titania (most of the times), Fei seemed to be full of confidence. She gave him vibes of someone incredibly knowledgeable and reliable.
It was as if he was seeing two drops of water interact.

A long moment of silence ensued on Titania's end, before she tilted her head. "...Huh. Care to tell me about them?" A simple question, but one she'd actually be okay without an answer for. She did say knew, after all. Maybe they weren't around anymore. The Tinkermon gave a nod to the Lekismon.
"Yeah, uh...She's...going through some bad stuff. Hasn't responded to anything I've sent. I hope she's okay, I really do..." Titania trailed off when Fei addressed Boru, before her attention was promptly grabbed again. Did she actually do a good job here? At all?
She failed to save the brothers, for crying out loud. "I'm not giving up on that. I'll save them even if I have to go to the ends of the earth to." The fairy declared in a rather resolute manner. Misjudging? No, Fei hadn't been misjudging Titania in the slightest. In fact, the rabbit was exactly on the goddamn mark.
"So, tell me. How might you be able to help? Because we don't know where those two went. Not. A. Clue."

“She got lost long time ago.” With a sigh, Fei replied to Titania’s question. “I’m looking for her. Or for the place where she might be.”
Seeing the Tinkermon’s expression after the rabbit’s words, Boru finally made up his mind about saying something he had been thinking for a while. “This… This is not your fault, Mrs. Titania! You and Sonia were only helping me because I’m weak and I can’t…”
“You’re wrong.” Only to be interrupted by Fei, who had her arms folded and looked at him with the corner of her eye. Boru stopped talking and just blinked twice, looking at the nurse. “The wounds caused by exhaustion you had.” She said. “I know you can’t remember what happened. But that kind of worn out is something I’ve only seen in digimon who reached a very powerful stage.”
These words were like a bucket of cold water had been dropped over Boru.
“What are you… s-saying?”
“You evolved. I don’t know into what type of digimon, but it’s definitely a showing that there’s a lot of power within you.” A pause ensued. “While Titania fixes her own issues with her tamer. Which she is going to do now.” She now issued these words looking at Titania, and speaking with a certain emphasis. “I could train you, in order to exploit your true potential. With training, you can evolve into a form you can keep to make good use of your power.”
She continued speaking to the Psychemon.
“B-But…” Boru stuttered. “I’m weak! I can’t withstand that type of training and I get tired very easily.”
A smirk appeared on Fei’s countenance. “Then I guess this would be a challenge for both of us, wouldn’t it?”
The Pyshcemon’s eyes started tearing up.
Regarding Titania’s question…
“That’s why I said you did a good job, Titania.” With her right hand, the Lekismon took out a piece of paper out of her left glove, handing it to Titania. “While I healed you, I found this stuck to your very scarce clothing.”
It was a picture. In it, four digimon could be seen. They seemed to be at some type of home. A table, a kitchen. Behind them, a sunset.
A Wanyamon, a Pandamon, a Ballistamon, and a Veedramon. All of them smiling. The blue, furry digimon on top of the bear’s head.
“Veena told me she saw that Pandamon on the ground when she found you. You had a fight with him, right?” The Lekismon asked, while the fairy looked at the photo. “I guess he must have dropped it while you fought, and it just got hooked to your attire.”
“Amazing. Is that… his... family?” Boru asked, standing on his tippy toes to look at the picture.
“It might be. What's important is… this.” Fei place her glove at the background of the photo. Under the sunset and through the window, a set of houses and buildings could be seen.
“I would recognize that anywhere. That's Terminus City. According to what you told me, that Pandamon worked with the Aegiochusmon. And it's obvious the Aegiocusmon worked with the Effecmon who took Boru’s brothers.” Fei had tied one clue with the other, to turn this into a big lead. Of course, she could not have done that if Titania had not done the fighting.
“It looks like a place where they would live. This is a clue. Boru’s brothers can be at Terminus.” She remarked. However…
Slowly, Fei closed the physical gap there was between her body and Titania's, taking her left glove off to reveal a humanoid hand, caressing the fairy's left cheek. Moving dainty, the nurse gave what could be described as a very soft kiss to Titania on the opposite cheek, while her hand kept caressing the other. “It’s important you fix your own issues first. Go see your tamer and end that silly argument.” She made a pause. “People who love each other… must be together. Forever.”
If only she could have stayed by his side… A sigh escaped the nurse. Trying to go back into the topic, she looked at Boru. “I will take care of the little guy meanwhile. At least until he's ready to be a threat for our enemies and you are ready to go too. If he and his big sister are okay with that, of course.” With a smirk, she looked at Titania again.
Boru’s gaze went towards Fei. Then, he directed it to the fairy.
Was Titania his big sister too now?
She probably was.

"Then I wish you luck in your search, Fei." Titania stated. She knew that Boru had a point, but she had made a promise to the Psychemon that...had not been quite fulfilled yet. At all. That was where her guilt stemmed from. It was true that she needed to fix her issues with Naoko, but...That was going to take a while.
A long while, at that. Titania's gaze went to Boru at Fei's explanation. "That explains why he was so tired..." The fairy murmured, before she shook her head. "Don't say that. The weak can become strong through practice, through training. You can get past these hurdles if you go and train with Fei, Boru. If you two can get through these challenges? You'll be far stronger than anything on this world."
The fairy then blinked at Fei further clarifying why she had told her good job. It seems the Pandamon had...dropped a photo. A photo of him and three other individuals who's identities Titania did not know, whatsoever. "So he has friends...And they're within Terminus." She drew that conclusion quite swiftly. Titania could also deduce that this picture was taken in Terminus.
"I'll try. I...I don't think it'll be easy, but that shouldn't matter." Was she fazed at all about being called Boru's big sister? No, not at all. But before the fairy took her leave, she moved towards Boru. "Will you be alright while I'm gone? Furthermore...Are you fine with me leaving you with Ms. Fei?"
...A tough question, to be sure.

Training with Fei, huh?
Titania seemed to be okay with the idea. Fei herself seemed up for it, too. Even if Boru wanted to come up with an excuse to not do this, it was likely not even himself would let him do such a thing. He had
to do this. It did not matter if he was scared or tired, he had to keep pushing forward.
He could not help but wonder what was behind this Pandamon’s story and who all of those digimon in that pic were.“I’m pretty sure you’ll make it. And I’m sure your tamer loves you dearly. Why wouldn’t she, after all?”
Fei reaffirmed her words with a smile and a nod, letting go of her hug with Titania. “You will have my D-Terminal information, so you can let me know when you and your tamer had fixed any problem you two might have. I assume you’re going to the Human World to see her. If that’s the case, time here will go by faster, so we will be able to train a lot while you fix things.”
Of course, the nurse’s eyes now went towards Boru. In the end, it was his decision.
His purple eyes looking firmly into Titania’s irises, Boru gave her a firm nod. “I will do it. With you, Katherine, and my siblings gone, I really don’t have anywhere to go. I might at least try to become stronger to not be completely useless for when you can come and help me, right?”
That made perfect sense. He did not have much of a choice.“I must warn you.”
Fei addressed Boru, showing him a smirk. “I am probably tougher than Titania here. I might be a rough master.”
The Psychemon turned his head towards the Lekismon. “It’ll be an honor to work with you, Feishi!”
He stated, effusively. The nurse looked a bit shocked upon hearing Boru calling her like this. Was that a way of referring to her as a master, or someone who knew more than him?
Back to Titania…
A hug. The biggest he had given to anyone since he said goodbye to Jazz at Rustport. His arms were wrapped tightly around Titania. “I will be waiting for you, okay?”
Taking the picture back, Fei looked at the fairy again. “It’s set, then. Once Boru becomes stronger and you have solved any pending issues you might have, we’ll meet at Terminus. There, I have no doubt a brutal battle will be waiting for us. So we better be ready.”“It’s a good thing you’ll have some help, huh?”
A female voice got to the ears of the group. One that both Titania and Boru knew all too well.“Sonia…”
Walking next to the Falcomon, half-illuminated by the moonlight going through the leaves, Agner could be seen too.“It’s the least we can do after you saved the Mangrove, don’t you think?”
The Metalmamemon asked, rubbing the cannon on his hand.“B-But…”
“I hope you’re not thinking I’ll take a ‘no’ for an answer.”
Sonia declared, her gaze going from Boru to Titania. They had to know her better than that, right? There was no way these two were changing their mind about this. “For now, we have to stay here to give life back to the Mangrove and get back into things. Agner will give his D-Terminal info to Titania and Fei. We’ll meet you all at Terminus, when the time has come.” “T-Thank you so much.”
What were only teary eyes before, had turned into a pair of waterfalls. Boru was truly moved by this.
Tomorrow, everyone would depart to their own destinations. Set to solve their own issues, in order to be able to face the biggest combat of their lives.
At the moment, Boru could not even begin to comprehend the huge value the allies he had gotten had. He did not know who Fei really was or how more important Titania would get in his life in the future. Maybe the adventure at the city high above the sky was over. But Titania and Boru still had a lot of flights to take together, and the adventure was far from being over.
It was also about to get a lot more difficult, too.
