Yoshihiro thought about Clayton's spirit and said "It would make sense that any Calumon wouldn't affect a spirit wielder that doesn't have the spirits but I can't even digivolve ordinary digimon, Clayton."
"Maybe you were born different than the others for a reason, Yoshihiro. Other than for being my partner, that is." Ryuji said as Clayton was gathering his things. "After all you also know martial arts. That's one up on me." Ryuji also said in an effort to make Yoshihiro feel better.
Looking at his tamer, Yoshihiro said "One up on you? You mean you don't know any form of martial arts."
"Nope. Not a single one but somehow I get by." Ryuji said with a smile that made Yoshihiro smile in turn.
After hearing Clayton speech about working hard Yoshihiro smiled and said "I understand somethings are hard but if I digivolved once already I know I can do it again. Maybe I just was not ready, yet. Who knows? Thanks, Clayton."

Clayton had to agree with Ryuji, he did seem pretty helpless when the Demidevimon grabbed him. "Might be good to learn from Yoshihiro how to fight, could help out a bit. Plus couldn't hurt." Clayton had no idea if anything Yoshihiro could do could transfer to Ryuji but learning the basics might help out a great deal.
With Yoshihiro commenting on Clay's speech he simply smiled. "Yeah, the best things take time. Can't rush your way through stuff like this, I assume." he didn't have a digimon so he had no idea, but he was reminded of something else when evolution came up. "Maybe look for one of those items that let you armor evolve, might jumpstart it or something." it was just a though but hey who knows?
But looking at the sky Clayton felt like a bit of time had passed. "We should start moving again, don't wanna be in the forest at night. That's True about any world." he reminded putting sword away and digivice in his pocket.

When Clayton mentioned that Yoshihiro might be able to teach Ryuji, Yoshihiro said "Helping Ryuji learn Mantis style isn't a bad idea but I could only teach him how to protect himself from weak digimon considering he's human. As for helping him against human attackers it looks like I have a lot to learn about humans."
"I guess, in a way, we could help each other with both problems but. Yoshihiro, you shouldn't be the one to fight humans. After all, small or not, you would eventually draw attention to yourself that way." Ryuji replied agreeing with both Clayton and Yoshihiro.
When Clayton mentioned armor digivolving Yoshihiro said "I've heard of that. Problem is I doubt it would do me or Ryuji any good since the items, which are called Digimentals, only seem to affect rookie level digimon. In case you guys have forgotten, I'm only an in-training digimon."
"But Yoshihiro, that doesn't mean they wouldn't come in handy for later. You know after you digivolve."
"You have a point, Ryuji but I think it can wait for now."
When Clayton mentioned getting a move on Ryuji nodded and said "Good idea, Clayton. If I had camping gear with me I might feel better about hanging around here over night."
As Yoshihiro settled back on Ryuji's shoulder he said "Yeah that and I would feel better camping anywhere that Demidevimon isn't to be honest. He sure is a nasty fellow."

Clayton mulled over Yoshihiro talking about defending himself, it made sense but… "I don't even want to think about humans attacking people in this world but it is possible I suppose." he admitted, though being able to handle weak digimon could possibly be a bonus.
But the mention of Armor evolution Clayton had meant what Ryuji said "Yeah I did mean for later, but yeah suppose it wouldn't help now. Kinda just shooting ideas to try and help us know?" he barely knew much about his own spirit let alone other Digimon, specially tamers.
Everyone seemed in agreement, more then just the camping part though. "Don't worry, if I beat him once I'm sure I can do it again, nasty fellow though wonder what his problem was?" Clay didn't want to believe someone would be that aggressive for no reason. "Kinda bad for a first encounter but don't worry, there's a whole town that while not nice per say won't just attack randomly." he felt like he should mention as he resumed their walk out of the forest.

"I think Yoshihiro meant so that I could defend myself against humans in the Human World mostly. After all we humans still have to deal with being mugged and such." Ryuji said as he tried to clarify what Yoshihiro meant. At least he hoped that was what he meant.
"I guess the Human World is just as rough as the Digital World. I guess humans being a minority in the Digital World makes things easier if I have to deal with them. No offense, guys."
'Or maybe not.' Ryuji thought.
When Clayton mentioned aloud why Demidevimon attacked, before Ryuji could answer, Yoshihiro said "I hate to tell ya, Clayton. Sometimes digimon attack for no reason. It seems Demidevimon is just nasty for the purpose of being nasty. It just happens sometimes, unfortunately."

Clayton thought about that fact, true if humans did come and attack them would it be fine to use their digimon to fight back? That would be quite the tide changer. "Nah the human world ain't that bad, though comparing to this place where small creatures seem to chuck fire balls on a regular basis the human world is tame." Clayton clarified, there was crime in the human world yes but after seeing what some digimon could do at lower levels he was more worried about that.
But that part about digimon attacking made Clay a lot sadder then he thought it would, he was told this place was dangerous but to behave like that was something new to him. "I don't want to believe anything would just attack for the sake of attacking but, seems like that's the way it is." the least he could do was hold his own blade when fighting just like when he fought Guilmon before.
But something crossed his mind so he decided to speak up. "So Ryuji, you go to the Shibuya school too right? Well you know what I'm interesting so, what's your hobbies if you don't mind me asking." Clayton tugged at his sword when he mentioned what he was into, he figured this was a good way for Yoshihiro to learn about his partner as well.

At the mention of creatures throwing fire, Yoshihiro chuckled and said "Well chucking fire is not one of my tricks but ,yeah, some of those digimon can potentially burn down a village."
"Jeez, Yoshihiro, how do you know you don't have such potential yourself?" Ryuji asked.
"I don't and that's why some digivolution lines can be unpredictable for humans. I mean either I or Clayton could turn into lots of things."
"Clayton's at least right about the lack of fire throwing monsters in the Human World but some humans have access to things as dangerous as flamethrowers. So I guess humans can be as dangerous as a digimon but probably not head to head." Ryuji said as Yoshihiro nodded in understanding.
When Clayton asked Ryuji if he went to school, Ryuji shook his head and said "Nah, I graduated early. I make money as a Youtuber. As for hobbies, I like reading and video games."

Clayton was a bit afraid at the whole burning down a village part but the more he thought about it the less worried he got, after all it would be a village of digimon so he doubted that one could run over a village if they had similar powers. "Yeah this evolution thing seems wild, all I got is Kotemon though. I actually gotta look for more spirits before I can transform." that made it sound more predestined then Yoshihiro said, after all not like he could pick up any spirit off the ground right?
But that second part about Ryuji graduating early did shock him a bit. "Oh really? Well then I'll hafta look you up when I get back. I mostly dabble in a bit of everything but I spend most of my time training. Going to Kendo tournaments also, got second place in my last one."
But something else popped in his mind for a second, struggling if he should ask eventually he decided to. "Actually Yoshihiro, have you heard of a human who looks a bit like me? Same hair and eyes a bit older?" They had been here a while so he hoped maybe he heard about his sister around here, odds were out there but he was desperate.

"I heard spirits, like Digimentals for armor digivolving, are scattered all over the Digital World. If I can armor digivolve, for all I know I might turn into a big creature with sword arms."
Snickering to himself Ryuji added "Or some crazy giant beast with laser eyes."
Smiling, Yoshihiro said "Who knows. Digivolution works in mysterious directions."
When Clayton said they should look each other up sometime Ryuji said "Spending time hanging out sounds cool. Would be interesting to even see a Kendo tournament."
When Clayton asked Yoshihiro about someone who looked like him the little digimon said "Someone that looks like you? 'Fraid not, Clayton. I haven't been away from my village for more than a few months before I found Ryuji and yourself. That and Ryuji just got to these woods today. Sorry."

Clayton had heard he would hafta look for the spirits around the digital world, but hearing it from Yoshihiro reminded him of the situation he was in. "All over huh, guess I got my work cut out for me. But I'm sure I'll manage."
But that conversation about digivolution did make Clayton want to give an input. "Sword arms huh, if you got those I'd just hope you don't gotta scratch your nose or nothing, that wouldn't end pretty." seemed counter productive to have swords for hands but he did admit to himself it would look pretty slick. "I'll be sure to invite you next time I go to one, they can get pretty intense sometimes, Lotta skilled talent." Clayton offered.
But when Yoshihiro confirmed they didn't know anyone like that Clayton felt his heart sink a bit. "Right, don't worry about it. I didn't expect you too" thinking for a moment he decided to come clean to why he asked. "My sister went missing about a year ago, just all of the sudden vanished with no explanation. I've got a hunch she might've been involved around the digital world, that's the main reason I came here." he felt like he needed to explain his weird question, it was personal but he has had a year to get used to talking about it.

Both Ryuji and Yoshihiro snickered at the thought of scratching oneself with sword arms and Yoshihiro said "You have a point, Clayton. I wonder how some digimon I heard about manage."
"So blade arms is a thing. Maybe they improvise with things like tree branches."
"Lots of digimon have weapons of some kind even if it's something as humble as claws."
"Or giant syringes." Ryuji said with a shudder remembering Demidevimon. Yoshihiro then patted his tamer's neck in an attempt to comfort him.
When Clayton mentioned his missing sister Yoshihiro said "That's terrible that your sister is missing. Hey! Maybe she also became a spirit wielder, like you. Or maybe she has a digimon friend to look after her. If she's okay, I'm sure you'll find her."

That was an excellent question on how digimon without hands got along, they had some good ideas but Clayton figured. "If they have em they probably know how to deal, I'll make sure to ask any digimon like that how they function." his curiosity peaked now, all he had to do was find a digimon like that and hope that wasn't an awkward conversation. But the mention of syringes did make Clay feel a bit bad. "Hoping I never hafta see something like that again."
"Yeah, I think she was one of those, if she was a spirit tamer that would be a wild coincidence." even more so then him being a Kotemon. "Yeah, I'll find her. No matter what. If she's here of course" he didn't even want to imagine she wasn't okay.
But with that being said the large trees seemed to get thinner and thinner as they walked, they were just next to the outside of the forest. "Alright, it should be a easy walk from here, ready to put this forest trip behind me."

After mentioning Demidevimon's syringe, Ryuji had become quiet but he heard everything that was said. As Yoshihiro patted his neck he felt better. Normally needles didn't bother him but giant ones just became the exception. It was slightly less nerve wracking to be held hostage by that bat winged bully. What if that needle came into play at that time as well. He shook his head not wanting to think on it further as the trees began to thin.
"After what happened in this forest I agree. I don't think I'll ever be able to look at syringes the same way again." Ryuji said as Yoshihiro nodded in agreement.
