Gem was not having a good time right now. His day started ordinarily enough; he woke up at his house in Rosewood and was greeted by his parents, Shoutmon and Skye, Shoutmon's human partner Adrian, and his older brother Rory. His plan for the day was simple, as he was just going to go down and meet up with his friends Kohaku and Ruri just outside of Rosewood to hang out. It was a simple plan for a nice and beautiful day, where nothing could go wrong!
As Gem had yet to learn, Murphy's Law was alive and very strong. He felt something weird happen to him as he was flying through the nature-infused city with the sun hanging above. Then, as if by actual magic, that nature city was replaced by one more modern and futuristic, and what used to be day had turned to the dead of night. Gem stopped in place, mesmerized by the new pretty sights at first. He watched the city of Tokyo from the air, watching all the lights of the cars zoom by, as well as the lights of the city in general. Gem had never seen anything like it before. "Oooh... so pretty...!"
Of course, Gem had prior obligations so he wanted to go back and see his friends. He flew back to where he came from... except he was still in this weird city of lights? "Huh? Wh-why can't I go back?" Naturally, the Gammamon was getting confused and he was scared. Why did he end up here all of a sudden? And where WAS here? The first thing Gem thought was to fly down and ask a nearby Digimon for help. But as he flew closer to the ground, all he saw walking and driving around were humans of all different kinds. And if Gem remembered anything, it was this piece of advice from his father:
"If we ever go to the human world, Gem, you gotta be sure to stay out of sight from the humans when your holosuit is turned off."
Was that where he was? The human world? Gem considered himself a good kid, and he didn't want to go against his dad's wishes. But there was nothing but humans here... where could he go? Where could he talk to? Gem was alone and he was scared, which was natural for being alone in an unfamiliar place. All he could do was fly around, hopefully find somewhere to stay or someone that could help him.
Unfortunately, Gem couldn't find any other Digimon. The most he could find was a stray cat or two in the alleyways he searched, along with a bit of trash. And it was getting a bit cold, there was no way he could sleep out here. Eventually, he did find a giant building that didn't seem to have anyone in it. Unbeknownst to him, this building was none other than Shibuya Academy. He flew through the window of the middle school building and found himself in what looked like... an art room? An art room... with blankets. Upon seeing that, Gem immediately dashed towards a warm blanket and wrapped it around himself. Minutes later, he felt himself growing more and more unconscious until he was asleep...
"I hate this..."
"I hate this..."
When Gem woke up hours later, he found himself in a brightly lit room filled with a bunch of human children... the exact opposite of what Gem wanted. Thankfully, he was close enough to the door that he was able to slip out without any of the students noticing him. So that was a close call avoided.
The rest of the day was filled with him staying out of sight from the humans while roaming the hallways, exploring the school to its fullest. It was so much different than his school back home, and it impressed him to no end. Even so, however, all Gem wanted to do was go back home. He was hungry, he was scared, and surely his friends and family back home had to be extremely worried about him by now. And that's when the dark thoughts started to plague his young little mind.
Would they be able to find him? Was there even a way for him to get back home? Was he going to be trapped here forever?
Eventually these thoughts got to be too much for him, and he started crying while hiding from the humans in a corner. It wouldn't be too noticeable unless you were right nearby at the time, but yeah... whoever would notice this little Gammamon crying would surely have their heart strings pulled by the scene. "Mommy... Daddy... Luneth... Rory... anyone... I wanna go home..."
