Connor simply stared for a moment, eyes hidden by the shine of his glasses once more "...Eh?" as the Armadillomon manifested in front of him onto the counter. He idly pinched his arm. "Hm. Not dreaming." he felt the force of the Armadillomon's tail wave near his face as it jumped onto the other Connor happily. "And I felt like that could have cracked my skull if it were any closer." he tidied up the top of his desk and took a deep breath. "...Okay." he removed his glasses and pinched the bridge of his nose "What am I looking at right now? I won't say anything to anyone at the risk of sounding out of my mind, so...let's hear it from the top please." the rapid tapping of his right foot indicated shock and stress despite his calm demeanor.
He put his glasses back on and was about to continue his questioning when another strange creature barged into his store and he simply stared vacantly as he muttered "What have I done to deserve this meeting of the fae creatures. Am I hexed?"
Then the other young man walked inside "Hello there newcomer my name is Connor Finley and welcome to Tir na Nog. I don't know what these are or why you kids have them but please for the love of all that is decent don't let them be seen by other passers by right now. I don't need more of this. Is this a new toy? Nanomachines? How can you afford these? Am I going insane?"
Connor would then move Armidilomon from the side as he got up. He would then pick up his digimon to cradle him. As he did, his eyes widened to a sudden appearance of another person and his own in-training level digimon digi-volve to Veemon. Connor winced at the fact of how can a person just annoy him so much to the point where he was squinting at him. "Listen that's nice and all but, seriously, nobody likes a chatterbox. Especially if you're talking way too fast." He said to Ryoji.
Armidillomon would tilt his head to see the other Connor as he would look up at his tamer. "Hey, Connor, I thought we weren't supposed to let people know about us." He spoke.
"Well, I'm making an exception, Jesse. But, I pray that nobody ELSE will barge in here and ATTRACT OTHER PEOPLE." He raised his voice a bit as he then looked at Ryouji and Veemon. Connor would then tug on his bandanna a bit, feeling uncomfortable.
Armidillomon would then hop off from Connor's arms, landing on the counter. "Hey, whatchamacallit, would it be possible to close this shop for now? Just so nobody else will come in?" He asked the other Connor as he turned his body to look at him.

"I'm sorry. Zero can get a little bit derailed at times. Especially when he is explaining things." Ryouji said, then mumbling "His next evolution will probably be teachermon."
"I heard that." Zero said, before smacking Ryouji in the face.
Ryouji then replied with "Please unhear that."
Ryouji then got up and attempted to devolve Zero back to his Baby I stage, so that people wouldn't notice a blue dragon-like thing walking with a person when we leave. But there wasn't any energy left to evolve or devolve with.
"Great. Now we'll have to sneak home like we're spies or something. Or we can just wait for the energy to fill back up." Ryouji said, looking at Zero.
Connor listened intently on the descriptions and stood up to close the blinds for a bit and flip his sign to 'On Break' before leaning against the door "Okay. Digimon. Understood. You can change form...while this is fascinating it just raises more questions. Where did you come from and why are you following these guys around? Wait a minute...do you have anything to do with that odd organization wandering about the city? Look...I won't say anything to anyone. It's clear, whatever you are, you're friendly. At least the two of you are. But I'm worried I'll have some kind of target on my back now..."
"Though if that's the case, I might as well learn what I can now that I know about you. I'm impressed the general populace doesn't seem to know about these Digimon. It worries me why it's so imperative they're kept a secret though."
When Zero and Ryouji lamented that Zero didn't have the 'energy' to devolve, Connor scratched the back of his head "If it's energy you need, maybe some food will help? I've got plenty of food in my fridge. Let me go grab a few things upstairs." he said before stepping away from the door and walking upstairs to his apartment.
He mused for a moment. He could call someone, but that'd just make him an awful and untrustworthy person. These Digimon continued to astound him and he wanted as much info as he could about them. Maybe figure out how to get in contact with more of them. He took a few packaged snacks and some rice balls from his fridge along with a couple of drinks.
Afterward, Connor returned downstairs and arranged the snacks and such on his counter "Here you are, plenty of stuff to peruse and snack on. Hope this helps out. In exchange, I'd like you all to tell me what you know."
"I hear you. If anything, all of this makes me feel more confused." Connor said to Finley as he looked at food he brought with him. "Gee, that is a lot." He spoke, tightening his bandanna as it appeared a bit loose.
"Eh, you'll get used to-" Armidillomon spoke, referring to his tamer being confused about what Digimon are, digivolution, etc. However, the food that Finley brung and placed it on the counter. Jesse couldn't help but, approach it and give it a sniff.
"Um, what are you doing?" He asked his digimon pal.
"Checking for poison." He answered him casually, continuing to sniff them with Connor not helping but, almost snorting out of amusement. "I'm not sure if you're being silly or you're dead serious." Connor said to him, putting his hands on his hips, tilting his head a bit.

Ryouji would look at his Digivice, then at Finley, saying, "I dont really know much, but from what Zero has told me, Digimon come from a place called the digital world. I'm guessing it's like the internet, but they normally don't devolve, and evolve over time. This is why our Digimon need to get rest or eat before or after evolving or devolving."

Connor leaned back and watched the interactions among the people and Digimon in the room, though he sighed as yet again, these answers just led to more questions "This is all a lot more complicated than I can really fathom right now. But..." he grinned and waved his arms out slightly in an over the top gesture "It's all so exciting, isn't it? A mysterious discover only known in this corner of our wonderful world, and you say there's a place called the Digital World where these Digimon hail from? Wonderful. Truly wonderful." he said happily as he looked at Armadillomon "Oh don't you worry at all. Watch." he unpacked one of the rice balls himself and began eating with no negative consequences. "See? All fine. Dig in."
While Connor wondered what the deal was with the bandanna, he didn't want to pry too much. "Is there some sort of secret puzzle or test one has to pass in order to reach this Digital World?" As if on cue, there was a sudden flash of light in the room that made Connor recoil slightly "Agh, what now?!" he cried out as the light subsided. When his eyes adjusted, Connor noticed something on his counter. A black and white device of some sort that he reached out and picked up "Hm..?" he looked over it a few times "Where did this come from...? It looks like..." he eventually put the pieces together and looked at the others "Um...hm. Well. This was shockingly easy. So what exactly do I do with this?" He kept looking over it, pressing the buttons, but nothing seemed to work right now.
It seemed Connor was chosen by whatever decides these things to journey forth into the Digital World. "It seems my fortune today was accurate, for sure." He said with a vindicated chuckle "Yes...I can tell there's much adventure to be had. As soon as I figure out where I'm even supposed to start."
Armidillomon couldn't help but, squint at Finley as he then turned to the pile of food. Connor approached the pile as he took out a packaged rice ball and opened it. He would then have the riceball in his hand as he then moved his hand towards Jesse with his rice ball. "Jesse, don't make this difficult. If it is apparently poison then me and the other Connor is going to have a problem." He said to him.
Armidillomon nodded as he then took a small bite of the rice ball, chewing it carefully. After a few seconds, he decided to take another bite and chewed it normally. "See? Nothing to worry about."
Then, the sudden flash of light had Connor go infront of Jesse as he covered his eyes. With the light now disappearing, he saw Finley pick what seems to look like a D-3 like the one he has. "You tell me. I don't know what to do with it." Connor shrugged.

Ryouji and Zero, who were both eating a riceball at this point, saw the flash. Ryouji was amazed when he saw another digivice come out of nowhere.
"That was. strange to say the least. What kind of device is that even?" Ryouji asked with a confused tone in his voice.
Zero then responded to his tamer with "It's a Digivice. I think. There are multiple types, so unless that is a new phone with the ability of creating awful distractions to appear and disappear, it's a digivice."
"OK, but where is the egg?" Ryouji asked.
Zero then glared at his tamer while trying to not laugh. This caused Ryouji to look at Zero with a confused expression, before remembering that the V-Mon's egg was inside of his digivice. He then said "Oh yeah. The digivice."
"I...hm." Connor certainly seemed intrigued. The man was oddly calm about everything all things considered "Well, nothing to it but to accept this if this is what the so called Digital World wants with me. I'm sure I'll figure out how this thing works eventually. So I suppose I'll need to know how to get there. Either of you know? I'd assume so."
He just grinned at the Armadillomon's continued distrust of the food "I'm sorry if I don't seem like the most trustworthy person. Is it the glasses? The coat?" he shrugged "I just try to look my best regardless of the situation. Is that so bad?"
"So my Digimon are probably in this device? I assume I just have to wait until the time comes, then." he smiled brightly, clearly excited "Oh, how fun. I can't wait to meet whoever they are. Should I think of names? Maybe names from the legends...hm..." he paced back and forth behind his counter. He was having far too much fun with this.
"Looks like things will be getting more busy for me in the coming days. I just hope I don't attract unfavorable attention. I've got a business to run!" he said with a slight pose. "Sorry, force of habit. So...what next, if there's anything that can even be done? Honestly we should probably wrap this up soon so I can get my store open again."
"I second that." Connor said to him as he looked at Ryoji, turning his head. "I would've actually had a nice conversation if it wasn't for that know-it-all. But, it really makes me think about asking the other Connor about something. First, I'll have to wait until, HE leaves." He thought.
As he turned his head to Jesse, it seems that he had the riceball now but, it appears that he was finished. "Are you alright?" Connor asked Armidillomon.
"Weird question but, can I see your left hand? Or is that your right?" He asked his Tamer. Connor raising one of his brows, he had his hand infront of him.
"Okay?" Connor couldn't help but, feel confuzzled as to what he was going to do.
"You have those small thingies that was in the riceball when you held it." Jesse spoke as he licked Connor's hand. "There we go. You're welcome for me cleaning your hand." He boasted.
Connor couldn't help but, chuckle under his bandanna as you could tell, under it, that he was smiling. "Thanks." He answered him as he patted Jesse's head.

Ryouji would say "I third that." before checking his Digivice to see if Zero had enough DP to devolve yet, and it did. He then looked over to Zero, who was spewing out facts to a wall without realizing it.
Ryouji immediately turned to the two Connors, asking "Should I tell him?" while pointing at Zero and trying not to laugh.
Connor crossed his arms and tapped his foot a little "Looks like this is something that I'll have to eventually find out on my own. Right now though, I think people will start to get suspicious if my shop is closed for too much longer without an explanation. If you could, find a way to hide your Digimon friends and get ready to go. I've got a lot of thinking to do at the moment. Perhaps another personal fortune reading is in order." he said as he walked around the counter to the front of the store, getting things ready to open the shop again.
He paused and looked at his Digivice for a moment. At Ryouji's words, he quirked an eyebrow "Tell him what now? I don't really know a lot about the things you're all talking about now. I wouldn't mind being enlightened to some of the secrets of being responsible for these Digimon." he said, a little passive aggressively as he still doesn't know anything about what he's supposed to do next.
"Sorry, a lot's just happening at once, you understand? New worlds, new creatures, everything's just new. I thought getting used to Japan was going to be enough of an adventure but all of this is on another level." he started to open up shop again "Careful you don't have your Digimon get spotted, okay? I'll worry about you if that happens." he said, genuinely concerned for the well-being of the two tamers.
Connor nodded at the other Connor as he took out his D-3 and held it infront of Armidillomon. His digimon would slowly dissolve into data and go inside the digivice. As puts the D-3 in his pocket, he would nod at him.
"Hey, before I leave, could I possibly interest you in something? Though, I would rather talk to you in private." He asked Finley.
Connor would then look at Ryouji. "So, either you skidaddle or I'll make you go 'skadoosh', alright?" He said to him as he walks to the front of the counter rather than be behind it. Hopefully he intimidated him by saying that. No offense to Ryoji but, him barging in and being like 'HI, I KNOW EVERYTHING' isn't the type of people he would affiliate himself with.
It remindes him of an old 'friend' but, he would rather not dwell on it. Best to forget about it.
