Deep within the Server Woods a small larval digimon was crawling along the the forest floor. It was a Kunemon and on his back was curiously a katana that seemed to be just the right size for him without hindering his movements. Masamune wiggled his antenna as he made his way through the foliage on the forest floor keeping high alert out of habit on his way to his favorite clearing where he trained with his sword Tenken. His cautious habit was how he kept alive before the Tenken transformed him into a digimon and would not fade.
Sure as a digimon he was brimming with far more power than he ever did as an oridinary caterpillar but he was wise and humble enough not to let overconfidence become his enemy. His daily training also helped with that and perhaps one day he would leave the forest he long called home as curiosity was admittedly driving him to be tempted to take that chance.
Soon the Kunemon that called himself Masamune made his way through a bush and into the clearing he loved to train in. In the clearing were various tree stumps littered with cuts made from his blade. Stretching his muscles, Masamune spat silk thread from his mouth it flying back latching on to the hilt of his katana before he pulled it from the hilt and then with a flick the katana was now in the Kunemon's mandibles gripped firmly in the bug's mouth. He then turned to face a tree stump and lept forward taking a swing at the stump. That was always how he began his training and he didn't know if anyone would come across him even though he believed he was able to protect himself in case.
Hotaru, Sakura, Misaki, and Momo had all left to some Dragon Valley in order to do some sort of mission thingy. Reiko and Annika had bounced literally the moment they were able to, and Arisa, Miki, Emmy, and Elly all went off to explore something or other... Midori wasn't entirely sure what or where. Which just left Midori with Matsuri and Kirara, both of which decided they were going to play hide-and-seek.
And if there was anything that Midori was good at, it was being not-noticed! ...Unfortunately, it was possible that Midori was, perhaps, a little TOO good at the game. Midori was pretty sure it had been a couple of hours, and the worm Digimon hadn't noticed any signs of her friends. In fact, it was quite possible that they might not be looking for her anymore!
"Oh no... did they forget about me... again...?" She wondered to herself as she began to crawl her little green worm body around the tree she had hidden in. The green worm Digimon fumbled through the lush greenery as she crawled from branch-to-branch... only to promptly tumble out of the tree shortly afterwards.
Midori let out a loud "EEP!" as she tumbled to the ground, curling up her squishy body so she simply rolled into the fall, eventually coming across another sight. But it wasn't her friends that she found, but rather... A sinister-looking worm Digimon with a sword!
Midori froze in fear for a literal minute before yelling out "No! Please don't mug me! I'll give you all my money... but I don't have any money, so... Here just have a bunch of leaves!"
The worm Digimon then began to throw piles of fallen leaves at the samurai insect, in a vain attempt to save her own life.

At first Masamune had no idea there were others roaming around the woods he was training in. Then he thought he heard soft sounds of leaves rustling causing the Kunemon to cease swinging his sword but still held it in his mandible as his antenna twitched as if trying to pinpoint the direction of the soft sounds. Nothing at first but that didn't last long as the sound of someone saying "EEP!" before hitting the ground caused Masamune to drop the Tenken as he, in surprise, yelped "Kew!"
Though his katana clattered to the ground he was not worried about that as he the startled Kunemon spun in the direction of the Wormmon who fell out of a tree his antenna trembling as he tried to calm himself. The Wormmon seemed to be afraid which caused his antenna to droop before he opened his mandible as if in thought before he then said "W-Why would I mug you? I don't mean anyone any harm. I was just training here in these woods since I was preparing to explore the world. Kew." Masamune looked baffled that leaves were being pushed at him before he then said "My name is Masamune. I am mearly a humble swordsmon that was born in these woods. What's your name? Kew." The blade of the dropped Tenken softly glowed but the holy blade did little else.
Midori continued shoving leaves until the Kunemon began speaking. After all, shoving leaves around while someone was trying to speak was just plain rude, even if they WERE a mugger with a dangerous sword. But thankfully, it didn't seem like he was actually a mugger, even though this worm Digimon carried a dangerous weapon.
But wait... what if they were so offended that Midori accused them of being a mugger, that they would get so annoyed that they'd pick up their sword and stab Midori with it, anyways!?
"NOOOOOO! Please don't stab me with your sword! I'm too young to be shanked or shivved!" She yelled out as her wild imagination got the better of her. She shot out a web onto the dropped sword, causing it to stick to the ground before she began using her worm body to start digging into the ground.
But worm she may be, Midori wasn't the quickest burrower in the world. It was gonna take her a few minutes to make a proper underground escape.

Much to Masamune's bafflement, the Wormmon did not calm down nor did she introduce herself. Was she really that freaked out by him? "Kew?" Masamune asked his antenna dropping before he began softly clicking his mandible the sound also advertising the little caterpillar's confusion. Not once did he make a move toward Midori agressive or otherwise. He still stood there watching her though as leaves were still flying at him.
Then she screamed begging not to be stabbed which confused him yet even more seeing as he told her he meant no harm. Then she shot a web at his katana the Tenken causing it to stick into the ground. Then she began digging. Was she trying to burrow some kind of escape route? Masamune cocked his head now wondering how he was able to become this confused.
"Uhm? Excuse me? Kew?" Masamune asked raising his voice a bit but it was far from an agressive tone. Infact the tone was quite gentle. Hopefully this Wormmon would calm down cause he was lost.
Midori wasn't sure how long she was digging for, but she was certain that this enemy worm was going to get his sword free then chop Midori up into little bits. But after a clear amount of time... Midori's wormy body remained uncarved. Which was definitely a relief, to be sure, but it was most certainly confusing.
In fact, the swordsmon Kunemon seemed to be pretty confused as well. Perhaps they were still processing what all had happened. After all, Midori had come out of nowhere, disarmed and disabled the Kunemon's sword with little effort, and then proceeded to start making an escape. Maybe... Midori was secretly a badass...?
...Nah. She probably just got lucky.
Even so, this Kunemon dude... he had already introduced himself, but Midori had been busy panicking at the time to notice, so Masamune was simply some mysterious samurai worm to her. That probably still wanted to murder her, but Midori was beginning to have her doubts at this point.

Masamune sat there in his bafflement his antenna drooping while watching Midori continuing to dig. Sure he could of retrieved his katana Tenken at any time but the holy sword still lay where it was flung. Now still with his antenna drooping, Masamune lay on his belly softly clicking his mandibles before he said "Kew. Kew?" Poor little bug was totally confused but figured if he looked nonthreatening the Wormmon might eventually calm down.
Masamune lay there and softly began whistling from his mandibles as if an attempt to imitate some form of music. It wasn't bad but with practice maybe the Kunemon warrior could learn to mimic bird song in due time since he didn't know any human songs given he had never left that forest.
Then he stopped whistling before he softly, as if trying to sound nonthreatening, said "Please. Please calm down. I didn't mean to scare you. Maybe we can be friends, kew?"
