It would appear Clay was right, standing before them were two digimon who seemed quite confident in what they could do. "Actually we're not lose, I know exactly where I'm going thanks." Clay wanted to try and talk this out but considering who he was with just tried to do the same it would seem that wasn't an option here. "Alright then, you wanna dance. Let's dance."
With his digivice still in hand Clayton quickly slashed his hand against the sanner going from his human form back to his Kotemon form. "I'll have you know I've never lost a fight, so if you wanna give up now's your chance." Technically he was lying about that, he had been in two fights but he technically hadn't lost them so it might be good.
Pointing his sword at the two of them he waited for one of them to attack, figuring he'd at least give them a chance to back out now that it was a fair fight.

"Look at that, Pagumon.It would seem one of them is a spirit wielder. You handle the pee wee martial artist wanna be. I'll handle the Kendo dinosaur." Demidevimon said with a snicker before he brought out a syringe and threw it at Clayton with a yell of "Demi Dart!"
'That is one big needle.' Ryuji thought with a shudder as he took cover behind a tree. While not particularly afraid of needles, in this case he made an exception as he uneasily watched the unfolding battle.
Pagumon, meanwhile, had charged Yoshihiro before taking a deep breath and yelled "Bubble Blow!"
As the pink bubbles came at Yoshihiro, the little Calumon focused by closing his eyes before they snapped open just as the bubbles were about to make contact "I'll show you whose a wanna be." he muttered knowing the Pagumon heard him clearly before he shouted "Calu Mantis Arts!"
Yoshihiro, much to Pagumon's surprise, swiped at the bubbles with graceful paw strikes popping each one in turn. The Pagumon could only gape in shock as Yoshihiro said "I may not be any good against rookies, like your friend, but I can fight other in-training digimon. Let's see what you got, tough guy!"
"Handle me, sorry you're out classed." the dart flew towards Clayton, holding his sword he quickly blocked it with his wooden sword, holding his blade for a moment he held it in front of him for a second before he dashed forward at a blinding speed striking at the Demidevimon with his sword as he passed by him. "Sudden strike." afterwards he quickly turned around holding his blade in a defensive position not knowing if his attack hit it's Mark or hurt even.
Glancing over at Yoshihiro he seemed like he would be fine, Clay had to focus on the fight right now. "Last chance, back off and I won't hafta beat you into next week." Clay didn't want to fight but it seemed like he really had no choice in the matter. "Why are you doing this anyway, we haven't done anything to you two." might as well try to get some answers.

The Demidevimon spun backwards from the strike and dizzily shook his head as a regained his balance.
"Don't get cocky. You may have the power of a digimon but under it all you're just a puny human. As for why Pagumon and I are attacking you it is simply because we can. Once I get through you the other human and his puny digimon will be easy prey." Demidevimon said with a cruel glint in his eyes before he continued "Bat Flutter!"
Demidevimon flapped his wings as three bats seemed to appear before him. Then the bats swarmed at Clayton(Kotemon).
Ryuji, meanwhile, was watching Demidevimon when Pagumon's voice broke into a scream. "Ow. Ow. Get him off me! Get him off me!"
Glancing in the direction of the scream, he saw Yoshihiro had jumped on the Pagumon before it recovered from its shock. The fact that Yoshihiro was pulling the Pagumon's ears explained the screaming.
"What's wrong tough guy? Not so mean now that I have proven myself to be your match is it?" Yoshihiro smirked as he was using his opponents own momentum against him.
Clayton heard what the cruel Digimon said but didn't want to believe what he was saying, looking down at the ground Clayton gripped the wooden blade hard before looking back up, any hint of mercy he had before was gone. "Fine, there's no reasoning with you. Then I'll just beat you into the ground, this power is mine. I'll make sure you see that through this fight." Holding his blade in the sky as the bats flew towards him Clayton felt his blade light up with electricity.
Holding it down he quickly spun the weapon around himself, cutting the bats down and sending electricity across the field towards the Demidevimon. The electricity didn't go far enough to reach Ryuji or either in training digimon however, glancing over still worried Clayton was surprised to see that they seemed to have it under control, seems that martial arts business was all it's cracked up to be. Some of the bats Clayton missed hit him while he was distracted, not enough to deal much damage but way better than taking the full damage of the attack.

Ryuji watched the action in amazement as Clayton had begun channeling lightning. Glancing over at Yoshihiro he saw a smirk appear on his partner's face as he leapt off the Pagumon. It seemed that the little guy had a plan.
Proving Ryuji right, Yoshihiro turned his body toward the lightning as the, now angry, Pagumon chased him around.
"Calu Mantis Arts!" he shouted as he hit the Pagumon with his full weight with his attack giving him enough power to knock the floppy eared furball into the end of the fading electricity on the ground. The energy cut through the Pagumon knocking the little beast out.
Though Demidevimon absorbed the brunt of the lightning, he pushed himself back up and fluttered lowly,
"Alright. You're stronger than I thought but this isn't over." Demidevimon said as he glanced at Ryuji before yelling "Bat Flutter!"
The three bats flew from Demidevimon and headed for Ryuji. Ryuji tried to run but the bats were too fast and grabbed hold of him lifting him three feet off the ground. Because of his weight they could lift him no higher or fly very fast.
"Ryuji!" Yoshihiro yelled before Demidevimon interrupted him.
"Not so fast powderpuff! If you move, I might have to hurt your tamer." Demidevimon then said to Clayton "And you will stand down as well."
Looked like Ryuji had gotten into quite a problematic situation. "Guys help!" he cried out.
Clayton had to give them some credit, using his attack to deal with his opponent was a good idea. "Nice job let's keep it u-" Clayton stopped as the opponent used the same attack, guarding against it Clayton didn't expect the bats to go for Ryuji. "No, Ryuji!" Clayton reached out but it was pretty obvious he wasn't gonna be able to do anything about this.
Demanding they stand down Clayton looked at the ground, eyes angry focused dead on the little winged bat. Still he looked to the side and tossed his weapon away leaving him defenseless. "tch, What was all that talk about showing me the power of a digimon? You're just a coward, so much for me being a puny human if you can't beat me fairly." Clayton told him, while he wasn't one to usually taunt he hoped making the digimon mad at him would give Clayton a chance to fight him, wound his pride sorta speak.

Yoshihiro watched as Ryuji began to struggle as if trying to free himself but it seemed to be doing him no good as the bats proved tougher than they looked. He then heard Demidevimon laugh cruelly at Clayton's statement and said "Who said I had to fight fairly to win this. If you two lost this human was at my mercy anyway. It is unfortunate for him that he is partnered with a digimon that can't digivolve."
"I obviously did so once so I can do so again." Yoshihiro growled at the Demidevimon holding his partner hostage.
"Really? All Calumon I've heard of never have digivolved before. Besides the second your tamer was threatened you should have digivolved to defend him but you didn't." he snickered.
"Don't listen to him Yoshihiro!" Ryuji shouted.
The Demidevimon obviously didn't like his hostage speaking up and flew over to Ryuji slapping him across the face with his wing and shouted "Quiet Human! You would do well to hold your tongue."
Ryuji glared at the Demidevimon as he turned around facing Clayton and Yoshihiro before his captor spoke again "As for me, I've never had much use for honor or fair play. I do what it takes to win."
Clayton didn't even bother listening to what the digimon was saying, after the first sentence he shut that out of his mind and focused on what was going on here and now, glancing around he didn't see much that could help out. His blade on the ground next to him and the trees around them seemed distant, three bats holding up Ryuji seemed to be having a hard time holding the teenager up. Only three feet between him and the ground, Clayton suddenly sighed out loud, shrugging his shoulders and turning to face Yoshihiro. "Sorry, looks like I wasn't able to protect you guys after all." he sounded sad and sincere as he degenerated back to his human form. However the way he was standing Yoshihiro would be able to see his wooden blade at his side, Demidevimon however wouldn't be able to.
Turning around he quickly strapped it behind him raising his hands. "Just don't hurt him alright, I'll even give you my digivice just let him go." Clayton asked stepping a bit closer holding his digivice in the air, from this angle he seemed disarmed but as he got closer he would hold the digivice out towards the Demidevimon before reaching behind himself and throwing his Bokken directly one of the bats holding Ryuji up with absolute precision before jumping over and attempting to tackle the Demidevimon.

Yoshihiro watched as Clayton degenerated back to his human form. Looking at him with sad and worried eyes, he said "No, there has to be something you can do." Then he noticed that somehow Clayton had recovered his weapon and hid it behind him as he approached as if to surrender.
"Sure I'll let him go. After I rip you all apart with my bare claws." he said as Clayton came closer but much to the wicked creature's surprise Clayton threw his Bokken at one of the bats holding up Ryuji causing that bat to vanish and the other two to drop the tamer scattering into the nearby trees. Ryuji landed on his feet clumsily as Yoshihiro floated to his side to check on him. Other than a large bruise on his right cheek, he seemed fine. Demidevimon, however, was rolling on the ground with Clayton scratching at him with his claws.
Clayton seemed to of made a great move as he landed on the Demidevimon and managed to free Ryuji from the bats. "you two get outta here, I got this loser." Clayton shouted, reaching for his digivice, but a stray slice from the digimon made him drop it. "I don't need that thing to take care of a loser like you." holding his arms out blocking the claws from hitting anything vital as he rolled along the ground trying to get the upper hand.
Pushing through the pain Clayton scrambled away from the digimon, before rushing back in with a flying elbow. "People's elbow!" he shouted as he aimed to elbow drop the digimon, he had watched one too many wrestling movies today, on one hand if he misses it would probably hurt his shoulder like heck, on the other he had never gotten a chance to elbow drop anyone in his life and he was gonna take his chances now.

Refusing to just abandon Clayton they watched as he elbow dropped the Demidevimon causing the little devil to wobble away before taking a stiff flight "This isn't worth it. I'm outta here but I'll get you back one day you little powderpuff. You won't always have Kendo boy to protect you."
With that Demidevimon left fleeing into the forest. Pagumon groaned as he came to and saw his ally abandoning him. Panicking, the little digimon hopped into the forest as well.
Ryuji approached Clayton while nursing his bruise a little and said "At least those two are gone. Look I have a first aid kit in my backpack. If you want I can treat those scratches."
Yoshihiro then approached Clayton and said "Thanks for helping, Ryuji. I know I was suspicious of you at first but see things from my point of view. Think about it, not only were you armed but you were also acting strangely. How would you feel in my place."
Clayton landed his hit perfectly on the digimon, standing tall Clayton backed off as the Demidevimon decided to fly away, Clay didn't know if he could take more cuts. "Darn right you're leaving. Making the still raining champion Clayton Herron!" Clay raised his arms triumphantly into the sky, before feeling a few drops of blood hit his face. Looking at his jacket he was cut up pretty badly, not life threatening but his coat was a bit messed up now and his arms had quite a few cuts.
When Ryuji offered his first aid kit Clayton smiled and nodded. "Yeah, thanks. Good thing you're prepared." taking off his jacket he held his arms out, several small cuts were along his arms, nothing deep enough to scar but best treated as soon as possible.
While he did that though Yoshihiro seemed to have started trusting the teen. "Don't worry about it, I understand completely. I have a bit of a hard time talking to new people, specially around here cause I'm still pretty new." Clayton looked over at his Bokken on the ground before continuing. "As you saw before I just keep that for my own protection, if my spirit fails for whatever reason that blade is my last line of defense after all." looking back up though he just smiled. "Hopefully now you've changed your tune, not many jerks would throw themselves at a rookie without any defense." Clayton didn't seem bothered one bit about Yoshihiro distrusting him.

"Don't worry Clayton, I think you're alright. After all you helped us when you didn't have to." Yoshihiro said with a smile.
When Clayton accepted Ryuji's offer of first aid, he set his backpack on the ground and pulled out the first aid kit. As he tended to Clayton's arms, Yoshihiro looked lost in thought before he said "What if what Demidevimon said about me is true? What if I can't digivolve? I'm already different from other Calumon but what if.."
"Different, what do you mean Yoshihiro?" Ryuji asked as he finished up with Clayton's arms.
"That's right, you wouldn't know cause you're new to being a tamer. You see most Calumon have a special power to use digivolve other digimon using energy from the Crystal Matrix on our foreheads." he said pointing to the red triangle on his head before he continued "I, however, lack the light of evolution as it's sometimes called and therefore can't digivolve other digimon."
"Maybe that means you can digivolve, Yoshihiro."
"If so why didn't I earlier? What kinda digimon partner can't digivolve?" Yoshihiro said as he frowned.

Clayton felt a bit of stinging while his arms were taken care of, not enough to complain but he did wince once or twice as Ryuji worked while Yoshihiro talked about the evolution light. "I was wondering what that crystal in your noggin was, but light of evolution huh." Clay thought for a moment while he threw his jacket back on, that it would've been useful but. "Suppose that wouldn't have worked on me anyway, my power comes from spirits after all. Evolution doesn't exactly help if I don't have the spirit." Clayton pointed out to hopefully make him feel a bit better about not having it, or at least not as bad.
Listening to Yoshihiro while he walked over and collected his Bokken and Digivice, mulling over his words Clay thought about what to say. "All journeys start in a single step, what might be easy for others can be hard for you. If you work hard though and pursue what you want to do you'll be fine." Clayton pointed out before smiling and looking at Yoshihiro. "Something my dad told me when I started Kendo, I sucked. You guys just became partners, you'll get there I'm sure of it." Clayton encouraged with a smile.
