CHAPTER III: BACK AT HOME.
Episode 2: Playtime is over! The new evolution that shines upon everything!
Sometimes, the residential district at Shibuya had one of those cold, calm nights, when even the sound of the crickets could be heard. Katherine had come to realize this was something distinctive of the part of the district where she lived, where the first big store or mall was located at least one kilometer away. It was… relaxing.
“So… no school tomorrow?” Jazz stuck a spun inside a bowl full of strawberry ice cream. One of the exquisite delicacies the Human World had to offer and that had just been added to the list of things the Lopmon had tasted since her arrival last Saturday, along with Ramen and Empanadas. “It’s good…” she gasped, before whispering these words.
Katherine, on her side, kept staring at her D-Terminal, reading a message over and over again. Kazuya had just notified her that he needed to go back to the Digital World to solve very important matters and get some things straight. That meant… she was alone against Void, for now.
“Right.” She finally answered her digimon partner’s question. “It’s one a.m. right now, so no school today. It’s November the third, a holiday known as Culture Day.”
“So your mom is going to that parade they’re having at…” The bunny couldn’t quite finish her sentence. The Human World had so many places! it was hard to remember all of them.
“Osaka, yes. She’s probably taking the train right now.” Katherine assisted her.
As most often than not, home alone for Katherine. Or it would be in a regular situation. She now had Jazz at her side to make her company. The green-eyed stared at the Lopmon for a second, her face wrinkled. Her attitude towards her tamer had been rather… odd, lately. It seemed like something was bothering her.
Katherine grabbed her cellphone once again. Even if she didn’t have to go to school today, it was an oddity that she was awake at this hour. Up to now, her whole night had consisted in checking news portals, to see if a new power outage had taken place. By now, she was almost sure it was Void causing these. The reason behind that was still her dismay.
“No outages yet?”Jazz was finishing her bowl of ice cream.
It didn’t matter how hard Katherine thought, she couldn’t find a pattern on how Void was moving. Why was he targeting random places across Shibuya and why did he need so much energy? All of this only made her head hurt.
“Want to try again?” Whatever it was Void was planning, they had to be prepared, right?
Jazz barely nodded, not showing too much confidence.
The duo got up to the rooftop of the building. For a six-floored residence, most of the district could be seen from there. There was not a taller building around. Being up there, it was unlikely anyone would see them.
“Ready?” Katherine pulled out her digivice.
A white, glimmering light began coming out of the gadget, engulfing Jazz immediately. The Lopmon started floating and the words ‘Armored Evolution’ appeared on the device’s screen. A white digimental started materializing through the light, trying to fuse with the bunny’s body.
As soon as they made contact, the light faded and the object went back to the digivice. Jazz just fell to the floor’s ground.
Even when they had found that digimental and had attempted to reach the new stage it could provide them multiple times, Jazz just couldn’t evolve by using it. Why? Katherine could only wonder. She was able to evolve into Moosemon as soon as they got the Digimental of Support.
It couldn’t be denied that, lately, it didn’t seem like anything was working on their favor.
Katherine took out her cellphone once again. Could a new outage have occurred already?
