It was said that time healed all wounds, but clearly that wasn't the case. A long time had passed since she had ran away from a meeting that she had asked for, but the past still weighed heavily on Sunny's shoulders. Even turning her back on the Digital World for a bit out of apprehension the wrongness of what she had done would always eventually find her. Seeing other humans who were alone and dejected, or even catching glimpses of rabbits real or otherwise. She could help those people, and often she did if she was able.
Thus, it had always haunted Sunny whenever she remembered Coolmon's happy grin while she had been hugging the digimon in her arms.
Then there was Coolmon's hesitant admission about not knowing a lot about her own mother, and wanting to meet her someday. The fact that Aurelia's stern personality had even triggered such a recollection helped drive home how terrible the spirit user felt. Sadly, it seemed that even Aurelia herself had quieted down since then, too. The silence had made Sunny feel like a part of herself had died.
The woman stared down at her digivice, held carefully between both hands. There was a faint light from the screen, but nothing appeared. She sat on a bench facing a raised platform with a lightly padded floor; the training area was empty for the time being. Still, glowing lines trailed the sparring platform's boundary in a faint white light. It was the same spot from that meeting oh so long ago.
Unlike then, she was dressed in something more appropriate. The woman wore coveralls and athletic shoes, the former of which was a rich blue in color. A pair of work gloves were stuffed into one of her cargo pockets. Recently she had taken a small job as a helper at the coliseum, and being around digimon fights had helped her work up the courage. Not only the courage to correct her mistake, but the courage to ask for forgiveness. She would do the latter in person, though.
The invitation had already been sent with a brief apology a couple days ago to give Coolmon some time to think. Would she reappear? As Sunny gently squeezed her digivice with a small, nervous smile, she hoped so.
