currently she and Bones where in a location in the digital world called Mainframe Hills. She had been planning to relax for once with her partner here near a small lake, heck she even brought one of her favorite books series for the occasion. However as luck would have it, they had been attacked by a group of water based Digimon because they had been "on their territory". So Aeron just did what she was born to do, destroy them with the help of her partners champion form, those digimon had been rookies, so of course it was easy.
Aeron watched as the data floated away, her partner Digimon was eating a turkey leg right next to her, it was his reward for a job well done. With a sigh Aeron sat down and took out her book, finally!.
"Bones, dont get in the water yet, wait for a bit or your going to get a cramp in the water, and Im not planning on jumping in after you"
Aeron was satisfied with that answer and looked back down at her book, as long as nothing else happened she was sure to finish this chapter book in an hour.
Standing at the shore was a girl, she looked similar to one Aeron already knows and yet completely different. It was Katsura and in her arms she was carrying Nyao the blackgatomon. Katsura was standing there with an empty look in her eyes. She had lost her bow and let her grow long.
What really sat this Katsura apart was how she could just stare at the water digimon getting killed by Bones, the old Katsura would likely have stepped in or at least be surprised but this one.
"What's the point... Sigh."
Maybe Aeron had forgotten that the forest was Katsura's unofficial territory even forgotten Katsura entirely? But despite this indifferent demeanor Katsura was well aware of who Aeron was. Standing right behind Bones, Katsura spoke again this time to him it seems?
"Aeron is still making you kill I see... What did they do this time?"
Katsura didn't even move, Aeron being good at reading people might notice that this Katsura seemed broken? More experienced but broken, whatever she has seen it had done a great number on her idealism.
Indeed Aeron had forgotten all about Katsura and her Black Gatomon partner, with the recent events that had happened in her life had cause her to forget about people she really didn't see as important to remember. Ouch.
However that didn't mean that she completely forgot who Katsura was, and it seemed Bones didnt either, because when he had heard someone speak right behind him the digimon whipped around and his eyes slited as he smell her scent. He gave a low growl
"YOU" the champion snarled, his mouth filling with flames
Immediately the dragon type sat down swallowing down the flames that had gathered in his mouth, the moment he did as was told Aeron rewarded him with a turkey leg. She had put her book down the moment that Bones had let out a growl, and made her way over.
Once she was sure her partner digimon was pacified she turned her attention to Katsura and her partner. Something about her seemed familiar and it was bothering Aeron that she couldn't place why. The young lady looked closely at the other and noted her body language, it was then she realized who this newly broken person was
"Katsura...right" she said in her usual emotionless tone as she looked the other female up and down, then looked over at the other tamers partner "Havent see you both in a long time, tell me, sucks to be alive dosent it" the goth princess said as she looked back over at Katsura with her green dull eyes, thought they didn't look as emotionless as they had been the first time they met, they were still pretty dull.
Bones snarling and fire making made his intentions painfully obvious to Katsura even from behind, why else would you yell "you" that loud? Katsura had already taken her digidevice by the time the flames were ignited, Nyao had crawled up at Katsura's shoulders where she could turn around to face Bones. Though Aeron had quickly gotten her digimon under control before any battle could begin.
"You welcome" Katsura said sarcastically to Bones since she was the one introducing them to higher digivolution and he repays her by being aggressive.
"It's okay." Katsura then said addressing Nyao who walked back in her arms. It's not polite to talk to people from behind, knowing this Katsura turned around then nodded confirming her identity as Katsura.
"Sometimes it does... Sometimes caring about others sucks more. Did you those two aren't mutually exclusive?" Katsura was just as good as Aeron in looking emotionless not only that but her normal voice was dull and monotone.
"I learned something too some digimon do not come back even if they were not absorbed."
Aeron listen carefully to what the other young lady had to say, seems like Katsura had learned since the last time they had met. Aeron rose a brow when the other mentioned that not all digimon came back even if their data was not absorbed. How odd, truly, she had a lot to learn then didn't she, Aeron felt like she had only scratched the surface of understanding what Digimon were.
"Interesting" the young lady said with morbid curiosity, she hummed and rubbed her chin with her right hand. "So these creatures arent immortal after all, I've never heard of such a thing before. I assumed that because they were made from data, as long as that data wasn't corrupted, they could live forever." the young lady said, she walked over to where her bag was on her towel and took out a notebook and began to write this new piece of Information down.
"Rather idotic of me to believe that though, now that I think about it, I miscalculated about other factors that could cause such a death in digimon, all life has to come to an end eventually" she said as she walked back to Katsura with the notebook
Now Katsura truly remembered Aeron, the antisocial girl who had enslaved her digimon rather than befriending it. And the one person she had come to regret ever teaching how to bond with her partner. Hearing such a heartless rant about how surprising it was that digimon weren't immortal brought all the memories back.
"You know many of these... Ehm "creatures" are my friends right? They are just as smart as you and as far as I know you can actually see their souls? They have families and loved ones too... Or at least they would if it weren't for you just killing them without heart."
Katsura indicated the place were the water digimon were a moment ago to make her point. As Aeron returned with her notebook, there was a hint of disapproval, maybe even disgust to sense in her face as she looked down at the notebook. The reason for that look came right away out of her mouth.
"You keep a notebook of all the digimon you hurt? Really? Mine is just a diary"
Aeron looked up from her note book at Katsura, and for the first time EVER, actually showed annoyance, exasperation. Almost like she was saying, not this **** again.
"yes, yes I believe you went on a rant about this a while back, look friends or not they are unknown creatures to me, I write down little tidbits of Information in this book about them, how they live, eat, sleep. I have no scientific name for them yet so I called them creatures, just like how we are apes" she stated and looked down as she continued to write.
"Furthermore I merely ended a fight they started, they were posing a danger to my life, I was merely showing that they shouldn't pick a fight with someone stronger then them so recklessly, their data is drifting toward the village of beginnings is it not, they'll be fine, cease your complaints" she said as she finished and put a period, snapping her book shut
"Also this book, is a field guild, NOT a KILL COUNT, what good would that do me, use your head for once"
Katsura may have her moments but in other areas there were still a lot to be desired. Right now it seems like Aeron's points flew completely over her head;
"You knoow they live everywhere here, right? You don't have to write down they live here. And I think they eat umm people-food? Oh and I actually have a science-name for them... I call them "best friends for life"... So there's that. If I want to know more I just scan them with my digidevice... Kinda neat I think."
Katsura mimicked scanning Bones by pressing on the scan button on her digidevice before putting it back in her pocket since it wasn't needed right now. It looked almost like Katsura had mistaken Bones for a television judging by her gestures.
"You didn't have to kill them... I almost never fight at all... Unless it's the Reaper sigh. But, you know what's funny? I have Nyao... Portals to anywhere I want... I can change the weather with just a card... All that power... but I can't bring back the dead."
Aeron could not believe that Katsura didn't grasp what she was trying to say. The young lady stared at the other for a very long time before she slowly pinched the bridge of her nose
She inhaled through her nose and let out a long sigh.
"thats....not what I meant" she said as she looked back up at Katsura "yes its obvious that they live here, but there are spasific places where they live, second they dont eat people food, at lest not here, ive been meaning to see what kind of fruits or other vegetation grow here, and if so what kind of vitamins are in them, how are they grown, eaten? , third of all that is not a scientific name, that is a label given from one human to others to show their comrade or alliance. The digivice information is rather limited, I crave for more. and Lastly, did you not just see that their data is going to the place where they will be rebirthed!. not to mention, talking to them was going to be a waste of time, they were aiming to delete us, as they say, so I was merly defending myself" Aeron finished her rant and went back to put her note book back in her backpack.
Bones had been quiet through out the whole rant, the digimon had devolved back to his rookie form and had been standing Guard over Aerons bag. Seems like she had trained him well, since he had managed to control himself through the whole event.
To Bones it would be like staring in a delayed mirror, apparently Aeron's words and failure to understand Katsura's feelings were just as strange to Katsura as Katsura not getting Aeron's points.
"Umm first of all I mean it... They do live everywhere... The other day I found a plant who was a digimon, the fish are digimon... I even met a talking coin... And a turd... And when you spend enough time in the dark area everything looks like a digimon to me... Those trees are probably digimon too... And I heard some forest digimon made a town around here not so long ago if you want to know how they grow plants. Second, I call all digimon best friends for life. It makes more sense that way... Also umm did you remember to upgrade your scanner at the mall? The new one says a lot of stuff... Last... No forget it. You don't get it... You don't know how it feels caring about someone, trusting them... then watching them die and you can't even stop it... The worst is they are gone forever..."
Katsura couldn't look at Aeron right now, this was hitting a sensitive spot. Once more having her back turned to Aeron, Katsura hugged Nyao tightly for comfort.
Bones growled, but did nothing else, he did however note that the other Female was not getting anything his master said, that was kinda sad, he was much dumber then that female and he understood perfectly what his master was saying.
Aerons eye twitched, this female..........this ra forsaken female really pissed her off.
Once again the goth princess took a moment to calm her frustration and anger. Not sure if it was a good or bad thing that Katsura actually manages to make her feel anything at this point.
"Thats.....you know what **** it" she said once again in her monotoned voice, seems like she gave up on Katsura, for now anyways "This is why I dont work with people, ugh, monkey brained, no that is an insult to the tailed mammals" She stated as she started to pack up, as she did she listened to Katsuras' Speech, she took note of the small village nearby that was run by tree like digimon. That was very interesting, she knows what shes gonna do now then, it'll be like killing two birds with one stone, get info on the plant life here and about the tree like digimon!.
Aeron put on her backpack just as Katsura ended her speech and took note of the other humans body language and tone. huh so she lost someone important huh, it was bound to happen Aeron stared at her back for a while before sighing "Ha, trusting someone?, Caring about someone, your right, I dont understand how that feels, I never had that luxury" she said with narrowed green eyes. "nor I will never understand how it feels to lose someone important. In fact I will never understand , so I dont know why you keep bringing it up" she said as she snapped her fingers. Immediately Bones stood up ready to follow his master
"Anyways, if we're done here, I must be off and look for that Village you speak of, Ive been wanting to ask how plant life grows here for a while now"
Katsura turned her head back watching Aeron packing up ready to leave. Katsura made a long sigh, why is it so difficult for Aeron to get? Why is Katsura still trying despite knowing full well Aeron is not going to change? Katsura didn't know those answers, and behind her dull expression those questions frustrated her. When Aeron mentioned "tailed mammals" Katsura objected.
"Hey... Nyao is a tailed mammal too... Then again I don't hang out much with humans anymore." what a strange thing to have in common, and by the looks of Katsura's human body language, she seemed willing to admit Aeron had a point there, she didn't seem to note the hypocrisy of Katsura herself being a human, however. There wasn't much point in keep arguing with someone about to leave but Katsura felt like leaving a few parting words.
"I meant what I said, I can get anywhere I want with portals, the city in the forest, Terminus, your house... I also have cards as well as Nyao... If you're going to see the city I can't stop you... I don't like fighting, but if I have to, uhm... Please, don't do anything stupid."
The part about Aeron's house, while technically true was also to a large extent bluff; Katsura doesn't know where Aeron's live, but spelling out implications of portals might still strike a nerve in Aeron. Is Katsura even the kind of person who deliberately abuses power like that?
