Megiddo: a fiery island chain filled with many resources, caves... and volcanoes. Active volcanoes, volcanoes that are always erupting. It you weren't a fire or dragon Digimon, life here would practically be a living hell for you. So why are twelve-year-old Kaya Matsui and her partner Hawkeye here?
Well the answer to that is simple: they heard rumors about a specific cave on these islands that held a special power. Perhaps this power could help Hawkeye evolve to the next level, the two of them thought.
According to the sources they had listened to, they had to enter a specific cave found in this area. Thankfully it would not be too hard to find, since it was pointed out to them on their map of the Digital World. Kaya was observing the map while on Hawkeye's shoulder, who was flying in his Angemon form. "Are we almost there, Kaya?"
"Almost... almost... here! This is the cave!" Kaya said while looking at the map on her D-Terminal. Hawkeye would then cautiously float down onto the beach in front of the cave, allowing his partner to get off safely.
Devolving into his Hawkmon form, Hawkeye observed the cave with his own eyes. "Are you sure that we'll find this power inside of this cave?"
"Well... not a hundred percent but it won't hurt to look, right? What's there to be afraid of?"
"Falling into lava, finding a giant Digimon, losing our food and supplies..." Hawkeye responded, counting each point off of one of his feather-fingers.
Ok, ok now Luna didn't want to be the one to admit this. Deep down she knew she had a bad sense of direction, she's prideful but she can admit it at times. Dust told her, Hackmon told her and even she at times told herself. But this wasn't your typical not knowing where you're going, this was some advanced lack of directions. "How, how did I get here?" she was trying to get back to the Binary Archipelago in the south. Now she's at a volcano. "I know I'm bad at this but like how?" she thought getting on that boat would dock somewhere safer, but instead she was knocked off during a rather harsh wave and landed on the beach nearby.
Looking at the boat slowly going away in the distance no one seemed to notice or care she got knocked off. "I'm sure they'll come back, I mean. I hope they come back right Du-." standing on the beach she looked over to her side to see no one there. "Oh right…." looking down she felt increasingly lonely on the island, no sound but the waves crashing against the shore. Wondering how she was going to get out of this mess her ears picked up what sounded like someone talking, looking around she noticed someone farther up the path near a cave going into the volcano.
Deciding it would be better to try and talk to someone then sit on the beach alone and feeling sad for herself the Lunamon started rushing over. "Excuse me!" she shouting giving a friendly wave and hoped in the back of her mind they weren't jerks.

All of a sudden, Kaya and Hawkeye began to hear a voice. It seemed to be getting slightly louder, if only slightly. The two of them turned around, and to their surprise, a lone Digimon was rushing up towards them. This Digimon slightly looked like a rabbit, one with a heavy lunar theme. If it did have feet they were completely hidden, and it was wearing a moon medallion with a pink ribbon as well.
Kaya's eyes lit up when she saw this complete bundle of adorableness running up to them. "OhmygoshHawkeyelookathersheissocuuuute!" Kaya said at rapid speed with enthusiasm.
"I got none of that, but I assume it means that you think that Digimon is cute," Hawkeye said, prompting a lot of nods from Kaya. "Don't you think it's suspicious that a Digimon like... that, is in Megiddo?"
"Come on, she looks friendly, and maybe she needs help," Kaya said. She kneeled down to her knees as this new Digimon properly caught up to them. "Hi there! Do you need help?"
While Luna was running up she noticed one of them was a human, a lot shorter then the humans she was used to, the whole 3 other humans she knew. They also seemed to be slurring their words a bit? Eventually though she reached the two of them, the other digimon she sorta recognized but the name eluded her for the time being.
Stopping Luna looked up at Kaya giving another small wave. "Hi, eh kinda do you know where this is. I uhh got knocked off the boat I was riding so I'm a bit lost." Luna decided to leave out the part where she went the complete wrong direction, best to just leave it at that. She also motioned to the boat way off in the distance now. "I uhh, don't think they're coming back from me." she would have some choice words to the captain of that ship when she made it back to the mainland.
"Oh, I'm Luna by the way, a merce- well ex-mercenary now. Nice to meet you." Luna said with a smile.

According to this Digimon, who said her name was Luna, she was knocked off of a boat that she was riding and has no idea where she is. "Well, we've been trying to make our way to the Spears of Megiddo. Considering we've made our destination, it's safe to assume that that's where you are now."
"Where were you trying to go, Luna? We could help you get there! We're great at navigation!"
"Kaya, we have no time for detours. We're supposed to find this hidden power inside the cave, remember? We can't go to who knows where else now just because a random stranger shows up."
"Well what do you want to do? Leave her stranded here with nothing?"
"That is not what I am suggesting. We'll give her some food and instructions to the nearest settlement. The Digimon over there should be able to help her better than we can."
Oh little did they know that the directions would not help. At all.
Spears of Megiddo, wasn't that in the western area. And she was trying to go towards the… "Oh, wow I'm way off course, I was trying to get to the Binary Archipelago." looking back on it the crew did look at her weirdly when she told them where she was going, why no one told her was beyond her but they were rude anyway. "I wouldn't ask you stop what you're doing just to help me out."
Thinking for a second she came up with an idea. "Hey, how about I give you a hand? If you're looking for a hidden power I could help you find it, might be dangerous after all. I don't look like much of a fighter in this form but I can heal people and make barriers." Luna offered, while yeah she was a stranger no one could deny strength in numbers.
"Like I said I was a mercenary so I won't ask for free help. I help you get that power and you help me off the island." it seemed like a win-win in her book but she felt this Hawkmon might need more convincing.

She was trying to go...
...to the Binary Archipelago...
...which is in the south! ...which is in the south!
Both Kaya and Hawkeye stared at Luna with bemused expressions before looking at each other... before they both fell right onto the ground as if it were an anime reaction. Their souls might have momentarily left their bodies in chibi form, as well.
After recovering from their reactions, Luna mentioned that she could help the two of them find this hidden power, since she can make barricades and heal others. As usual Kaya was willing and Hawkeye was suspicious. Of course she was an ex mercenary so she expected help getting off the island in return.
"Don't mercenaries tend to leave their employers for death if it suits them?"
"How is she going to desert us if she needs us to get out of here? We flew here in your Angemon form, remember? And you need me to be able to get to that form. Come on, she needs us..."
Hawkeye groaned. "Fine, you can come along. But if you lay a finger on myself or on Kaya..."
Luna rubbed the back of her head and let out a small laugh as the two of them fell. "Oh right, it's in the south, I always mix those two up." she was worried for a second they fell over, could've sworn she saw some white thing leave their body but both of them seemed to recover quickly from the event.
"Well I wouldn't exactly get hired all that much if I ditched others at the first sign of trouble, I'd get you a character reference but." Luna motioned to the vast waters behind her. "Yeah."
Kaya also brought up a good point with Luna nodded in agreement, after becoming an island dweller didn't sit well with the digimon.
But Hawkeye's reaction made her feel a bit bad, her ears drooping slightly. "I'm mostly a healer, I'd never hurt anyone who wasn't trying to hurt me." but her tune quickly changed. "Trust me, by the end of this little adventure I'm sure you'll think of me as a good friend, or at least a useful helper." with a clap of her hands she was ready to begin helping them out.
"Oh but do you have a name? I heard you call her Kaya but what do you go by?"

"I would at least semi understand if you confused north with south," Hawkeye said to the Lunamon, "but west and south are entirely different! How in the name of Yggdrasil did you confuse them?"
After agreeing to let her come along and Hawkeye warning Luna about harming him or Kaya, she claimed that by the end of their adventure he'd see her as a very good friend! "Well, we'll see about that. I don't dislike you yet, if that means anything to you. And my name's Hawkeye."
"Just ignore him, Luna, he's Grumpymon almost twenty-four-seven," Kaya reassured Luna as the group began to walk into the cave. Even though there was light behind them, the cave seemed to grow darker and darker by the second. Kaya summoned her digivice's hardlight baton just so they could get something resembling light.
"So about this hidden power... we don't know what it is yet. But Hawkeye and I have been looking for ways to help Hawkeye Digivolve to the next level, his Ultimate level. So we thought this power would help somewhat."
"It's most likely a Digimon that's been sealed away for good reason, the way I look at it."
"It doesn't matter to the how's or why's. All that matters is I'm here now." which was Luna talk for stop asking about it, you won't find any answers. "I have a bit up trouble with navigation and directions in general, I used to be with someone who knew that stuff really well but he's gone missing." saying that made her feel a bit sad again but she decided to push that down.
"Don't worry I understand I'm a stranger, you're right to have some distrust of me. I'll just hafta prove that I'm trustworthy through actions not words." Kaya mentioning Hawkeyes grumpy pants made her laugh a bit. "He reminds me of a good friend of mine actually, I'm sure deep down he's a sweetheart like they are."
The darker cave wasn't exactly ideal, while Luna was more used to night time even this was a bit too much darkness. Luckily Kaya had some Baton thing to light the way. Luna listened to the description of the hidden power, something in the back of her mind clicked when they mentioned it giving Hawkeye access to ultimate, she remembered something that did that but the name eluded her.
"Huh, maybe something here could help me too, I used to be a Mega level digimon but I haven't been able to evolve at all, no matter how hard I try." not even her champion form would show itself.
But mentioning a sealed digimon did make her a bit more sad. "If it is a sealed digimon, that's a bit sad, being stuck on this island, this cave alone."

"I think the how matters quite a lot, actually," Hawkeye commented. She did admit that she was just god awful with directions, which was at least a suitable answer since it was indeed the truth. Still, it should've been clear a while ago where she has been going, even before falling off the boat like she said. Luna also said she was someone who was way better with directions, but has gone missing. "Well... good luck to you finding this Digimon again one day."
Luna told Kaya that Hawkeye actually reminded her of a good friend, betting that Hawkeye was just a sweetheart deep down, since they all were, according to Luna. "You know, Hawkeye wasn't always like this. He used to be silly and happy like most other Digimon before, uh... well..."
"I would... prefer not to speak of that right now, Kaya."
"Right, yeah, now's not a good time for that."
And then suddenly, the cave the group was in begins to shake. They could all feel the shaking beneath their feet. Hawkeye looks up to see two rocks falling; one that was going to land right in front of the group, and one that was going to land... right on Kaya!
"Grappling Arrow!" Hawkeye called out, shooting a special charged arrow that acted like a rope, wrapping itself around Kaya's waist. The bird Digimon then pulled the bow, just narrowly pulling Kaya away from a boulder that would've turned her into a pancake with strawberry syrup. "Oh thank Yggdrasil..."
"Oh my god... thank you, Hawkeye... guess we need to be more careful than before, huh?"
