Mae-Mae, without even missing a single breath despite the randomness wa easily able to scoop up the flurry of digitized dosh with her ears, without even looking the little lopmon, with unnerring deftness and swiftnes collected the currency whilst simultainiously marveling between the unborn digimon, and Sumire. "Sumi-mon laid an egg! Mae-Mae didn't know you had that kind relationship with-" a terrifying thought creeped up on the lopmon before she finished her sentence.
She put that thing in her mouth... and seemed important to Sumi... and now there was a digiegg...
Was this her digiegg? Their digiegg?
"No... No surely not. I'm too young and marketable to be a-" Mae-Mae mumbled to herself, then she shook her head, patting her cheeks. "Th-This is a digiegg. Mae-Mae's never seen too many outside the village of beginnings. You gotta be careful with it! There's a baby digimon inside!" Mae-Mae explained with a sense of severity that would thus far be quite uncharacteristic of her. She stared at the egg, not sure what to do now that Sumi was a parent... Could she really take a single mom's money like this?
The answer was yes. But baby digimon didn't need money! Mae-Mae didn't have money as a baby and as far as Mae-Mae was concerned, she came out wonderfully.

...So wait, there was an egg in her pocket, in theory, this entire time? This was getting stranger and stranger, and this was already pretty strange considering this was apparently a holy city! Of course, Sumire was too busy marveling at the fact it could store a whole ass egg.
Too busy to notice Mae-Mae thinking a bit too hard on things! Poor Lopmon!
Of course, as Mae-Mae had been explaining the importance of a digiegg... "Careful with it how? It's...a pretty big egg, so I assume it's probably durable...." Sumire poked it...and it seemed to only take one poke for it to CRACK OPEN, a flash of light emitting from it, rays breaking forth from the crack to reveal a single creature, one most insidious in it's nature, it's power unmatched by gods.
This Digimon was said to be able to wield shotguns. This Digimon was able to wield Beelzemon's shotguns, apparently. But for now?
It was a mere mortal, a Botamon.
Staring at the girls with an unblinking, fearless gaze. It was vacant. As if realizing slowly that it even was able to breathe.
Time slowed as Sumire completely disregarded Mae-Mae's wise words, the bunny digimon reached out, far too slowly to stop Sumi's poke. Too slow to stop her hubris unleashing doom upon all. "No don't touch-!"
Historians would remember this day. Canticles would be written about how Mae-Mae had warned the progenitor of The Destruction of the perils of her ignorance, of the care one must show with life. They would remember how Mae-Mae had tried to stop this, to prevent the Great Unmaking - that was of course, if there were any left to remember...
"Oh it's a botamon, neat." Mae-Mae remarked, inspecting the tiny black ball of fur. "Digi-eggs are real fragile, except when they're really tough, Size definitely doesn't matter though, Mae-Mae heard about this one time, there was like, a digiegg the size of a building? and it was flying? Then it hatched and a Parotmon came out!" Mae-Mae explained with a tutorous tone. "Hopefully it didn't hatch before it was ready..." Mae-Mae mumbled, looking at the quickly fading digi-egg.

Complete disregard of words was unfortunately something that was just hardwired into not just Sumire but a lot of humans as a whole, so...Really, what was Mae-Mae expecting? Probably not that. Poor Lopmon.
As a cataclysm was unleashed upon Luminas, Sumire was confronted with a disregard of her own. Mae-Mae looked super calm about this whole matter despite the lingering paradox of 'are these things fragile or not?' The Botamon stared at Mae-Mae, before it would state their thoughts upon such a tall tale, in two words.
"...What's a Parrotmon? And why would it even be so huge in the first place?" Sumi had unfortunately managed to piece together a mental image of that and...it was not the most pleasant thing in the world. Kind of like Botamon's first two words.
Speaking of the Botamon, it seemed perfectly ready to ignore Sumi and start hopping around. They made small observations here and there. Bright lights. Marble. High up... "Holy city. Not Dark Area. Good. Safer than last. Gigo happy."
"Hey, did they just say their name was Jingo?" No, Sumi, no they didn't, shut up.
Mae-Mae recoiled in delighted shock at the Botamon's first words.
"Oh! Oh! It spoke! Is that your name? Is your name Cringe?" Mae-Mae would ask, letting the baby digimon bounce about before turning back to face Sumire, extending her arms and ears wide to try and indicate size. "Parrotmon is a huuuuuuuuuuuge bird digimon! He's big, and green, and shoot lightning from his head!" Mae-mae explained, "They're normally pretty huge, but the one Mae-Mae heard of was huuuuuuger! Very scary." Mae-mae said with a sagelike nod. Only to have her attention brought back to the baby digimon.
"Eh? No, Mae-Mae heard Geiko? Is that your name little guy, Geiko?" Mae-Mae would ask with sweet sincerity.

Cringe, The Botamon, thought for a moment. "It might be. But it might not be. But it probably isn't. Maybe?" There was a very potent lack of certainty in any of what the baby said. Also, Sumire was pretty sure that Mae-Mae had described not a parrot, but another goddamn Kaiju! So, was it any wonder when the teenager started to laugh?
"That sounds so...stupid, I love it! ...Did that show up in any Godzilla movies yet?" Toho might be missing the fuck out if it hadn't! "Do not know what a Godzilla is, but Gigo will ass it's thrash."
"No, I definitely heard Jingo..." Sumi mused, just as sincere as the Lopmon had been, but Geiko shook it's entire body. "Nuh. Gigo." A disconnect was had between all three present, and really, only the baby knew the truth of the matter.
"...Names aside, Mae-Mae, what exactly do we...do with this? 'Cause it's a wholesale baby for what you are, right? And...I don't even know how you deal with human babies--only child and all." Sumire just sort of...wrung her hands. For once, the girl looked a bit unsure of how to proceed. Or what to do.
The whole thing still seemed super overwhelming, even if a little less...
