For all the oddity of today, talking about a distinctly alien world's economic/currency system was probably not something that Akitsugu had expected to be doing today, but here we were. "Shibuya's." Aki gave in reply towards Kazumi. It was nonspecific as hell, but that was the truth given he was literally there before he was...well. Here.
Otherwise, the immediate comparison between some train show Aki saw as a kid was made the moment Trailmon got mentioned. He paid close attention to Makoto's display of what bits were, as well as the explanation as to what they...well, were. "I see." There was a noteworthy pause of about a few seconds, as he glanced up towards the isle in the sky.
"Yeah, I...think I'd want to go there. Better to get to safety than just lingering out here." Money troubles was likely something that he could afford to worry about later. "So, I'm ready when you all are."

"M-Maybe one of the Trailmon will be heading straight back to the Human World. M-Makes me wonder why some humans end up in the Digital World unprotected." Vemmon said as he seemed to be thinking.
"Perhaps we should worry about getting to the Trailmon for now and figure things out later. For all we know Akitsugu's will meet a digimon willing to be his partner soon. That's how this Xros General thing works, right Vemmon?" Kazumi said to her bug like partner. "I guess not everyone who partners with digimon meet them in Shibuya like I did."
"F-From what I've heard new Xros Generals meet their partners much like how we met. T-Though I still find it weird that Akitsugu's clothes changed upon coming here. H-Humans don't usually wind up here in a different outfit. At l-least I don't remember seeing such a phenomenon before. T-Then again, most of my memories before I met you are lost, Kazumi." Vemmon replied.
With Akitsugu mentioning being ready to go, Makoto would nod and smile; offering the young man a hand (or perhaps more appropriately, a claw) to help him up to his feet. "Let's get moving, then." They'd mention, smiling gently to him all the while, before continuing in questioning "How do you feel, by the way - does your head still hurt at all, dear?"
Akitsugu didn't seem confused or dazed (beyond the understandable confusion of being in a new world, of course) so Makoto had a feeling that he'd be fine with a little rest, but it was still good to ask. Once everything looked to be in order though, Makoto would gesture for the others to follow, as they set off towards Rosewood.
Meanwhile, Vemmon and Kazumi would be talking - Makoto humming a little in thought as they listened in on the duo's conversation. "At least going off of gossip I've listened in on, I've heard of humans meeting their partners in a variety of ways, and of humans ending up in the Digital World in a variety of ways as well. I don't think it's something that we can really put a single reliable rule of thumb to, honestly." They'd muse out loud, shrugging a little.
"Really, the best we can do is try to accommodate for the humans that do end up here unprotected, and send them home as necessary."

How a train could go straight to another world was probably not a talk that Akitsugu felt he wanted to have right now. In fact, his thoughts on the possibility was as simple as 'Maybe not.'
Moreover, though...Did people just usually meet their partners immediately or was he some weird sort of exception to this rule? The truth of the matter obviously lay elsewhere. He wasn't feeling dizzy for the moment but who knows if that would change. Still stung where he hit his head, but...what could be done? "Still hurts a bit, but...I think I'll be fine for the most part." Do these guys even have doctors?
He set off with Makoto towards Rosewood. Akitsugu still had no clue how to process...most of this, but so far everything seemed to sort of...click. That this was not Japan. That this wasn't even Planet Earth, for that matter.
"Do the humans that end up here usually go to Rosewood? Or somewhere else?" The need for more information was present, and...quite honestly, he was hoping that the fox could answer--they've managed to come through on just about everything thus far.

Akitsugu mentioned that his head still hurt which made Kazumi wonder if he was more hurt than he was letting on. What could she do about it though? She had nothing to treat potential injuries on her person and as far as she knew Vemmon couldn't heal injuries being little more than an electricity and ice shooting computer hacker. Turning her gaze to Makoto, she asked "Makoto, do you have any knowledge about treating injuries or even some kind of ability that allows it?"
I a-agree with Kazumi. W-What if Akitsugu has some kind of head injury. T-Those can be very dangerous." Vemmon replied. Leave it to the little guy to realize that they may have another potential problem on their hands.
Meanwhile, Kazumi offered her hand to Akitsugu and said "Surely between both me and Makoto we can help get you to the Trailmon or even a possible nearby hospital."
As Akitsugu mentioned his head still hurting, Makoto would nod in gentle understanding, giving him a light pat on the shoulder. "Take it easy for the time being, darling." They'd gently instruct to him, adding "You seem to be okay, as far as your head bump goes - but don't be afraid to speak up, if you think anything feels off, alright? Do you want us to stop by a doctor, before we take the train, to get your head looked at?"
As Kazumi spoke up and asked about treating injuries though, they'd shake their head a little. "I can perform basic first aid, but I don't have any healing abilities, sadly, dear." They'd mention with a sigh - adding "But I'm keeping an eye on him, to make sure he doesn't have a concussion; and we can visit a doctor in Rosewood, like I said to Akitsugu, when we reach town."
Though most doctors in the digital world would, understandably, be more suited for digimon... Makoto has seen some that are able to see and treat humans as well, given how easy it is for a tamer or spirit user to get hurt while adventuring around. If the need arose, Makoto was sure that they could take Akitsugu to one of them, and help foot the bill.
As they made their way for Rosewood though, Akitsugu would soon speak up, asking about humans going to Rosewood. Briefly, Makoto would ponder how to word this - tapping their chin - before responding "Well... It, understandably, depends on where in the Digital World you folk end up; humans who end up in the Digital World unexpectedly, like yourself darling, tend to end up in random locations to start. No real way of predicting where, exactly, you'll get plopped down."
"If you had appeared up in the north, someone might've escorted you to Snowflake Village or the city of Ys, for example; or to Whitewater or Sakura Vale, if you had ended up somewhere in the south." They'd explain, gesturing with their tails as much as they did their hands as they spoke. "Most - if not all - humans who want to go home, however, do so by taking the Trailmon in Terminus; which is our next destination, once we get to Rosewood."
"If you didn't want to take the train, an alternative is buying a Digiport for yourself - it makes a temporary portal between both worlds, essentially - but that would be much spendier than just taking the train home; so you'd only want to buy it if you had any intention of coming back here, dear."

Whether or not he was hurt more than was being alluded to was but a mystery at the moment. "I'm doing my best." He uttered. There was neutrality in his voice. No irritation or anything, just. That.
"And I will. Right now I'm...more of the mind to get my bearings straight with all of this." The thought of a head injury did not escape him, no. But they didn't have much to work with right now, right? "Yeah. Doctor when we reach town." ...
What -would- one of these critters as a doctor be like?
Never mind that thought. "I see...It sounds a touch dangerous, though. Random placements means I could've ended up basically anywhere. And...I don't think I want to think on how that could've gone if you three weren't present." Akitsugu mused, before giving a nod of thanks to Makoto and co. "How much longer till we get there?"
It shouldn't have been that much longer a walk. "...Whether I want to return here or not is something I'll have to consider carefully. Whether it is wise to do so without having met a partner or not, and all."

At least Akitsugu was taking the whole being displaced and meeting monsters thing well. Though Kazumi knew that not all humans would have taken meeting a digimon as well as she did. Glancing at Vemmon, she thought 'Come to think of it, Vemmon has an appearance that some could consider intimidating or even outright terrifying. I know he's a sweet little video game loving nerd but no one else would remotely guess that at first glance.'
Makoto seemed to be a kind enough digimon too which made communicating with Akitsugu a bit easier. Maybe she had some previous experience dealing with humans. Who knew since Makoto had a mysterious feel to her. "The Digital World sure is a big place. I haven't been to many places in this world since Vemmon and I have spent most of our time in the Human World so far."
"T-Then there are some nice places here in the Digital World that y-you and Akitsugu would likely enjoy visiting." Vemmon said in his usual soft spoken stutter.
Smiling gently, Makoto would nod to Akitsugu, as he responded. That he wanted to find his bearings was quite understandable - this place was big, and this place was quite new; so it was understandable that the young man likely felt like a fish out of water. "Doctor it is, then." They'd respond, adding reassuringly "We'll stick with you and answer any questions you have for as long as you need, darling; so don't worry."
As Akitsugu commented on the random placement and the danger of it though, Makoto would slowly nod with. This, perhaps, was one of the best places for a human to end up - the Eastern Timberlands, save for the deepest parts of Server Woods, were pretty mild; digimon here were more than likely happy to help any wayward humans, just as Makoto was doing so now. And as for how far away they were... "Not much further," They'd respond with a gentle smile - adding with a gesture "You might be able to see the colorful roofs past the trees, if you look closely."
Indeed, Makoto could spy Rosewood through the gaps in the now-thinning trees as they neared the small city. They would nod as Akitsugu responded on whether or not he'd return, as well as Kazumi commenting on just how big the Digital World is; mentioning "Well, you've been a pleasant travel companion, even if we didn't meet on the best of terms. If you ever want someone to keep you company, I'd be plenty willing."
Vemmon, too, would mention nice places to visit, to which Makoto hummed curiously. "Oh? Do tell, darling." They'd mention to the alien digimon - adding "I've mostly went from town to town in my past; never did stray far from the path until now."
