*The next day, at New York Downtown Hospital, Chris was being examined by a doctor, while Robert and Joey sat in chairs, waiting to take him home*
Doctor: Well, Chris, I just got your X-ray and your ribs look fine. A little bruised, but okay. You can go home at any time.
Chris: *sarcastically* Whoopee
Doctor: Just be careful the next time you go skateboarding.
Robert: Well, your mom will be thrilled to see you alive.
Joey: Yeah, now let's get out of here. Hospitals make me queasy.
Chris: *scowls* Stupid bruised bones
I so need an orange right now.
Robert: Let's go to the commissary then. We'll each get something.
Doctor: Oh! By the way. Chris, where's that puppy of yours?
Chris: Probably watching a soap opera in the waiting room or something.
*Meanwhile, Angelomon and Renamon; in her trench coat and hat, were sitting on a coach in the waiting room, watching a soap opera on TV. Angelomon had a glass of orange juice next to him, which he sipped at from time to time*
Angelomon: Heh! Sally really has no idea that her sister is her brother who was her sister
Renamon: *raises an eyebrow* Fascinating.
*Just then, Robert, Chris, and Joey entered the waiting room. Chris was eating an orange, Robert was eating an Oreo cookie, and Joey was sipping a box of apple juice with a straw*
Robert: Hey guys, whatchya watchin'?
Renamon: One of Angelomon's soap operas, 'Real Life in an Ordinary Street'.
Joey: *sips at his juice* Ooh, did Sally discover that Roy had an evil twin yet?
Angelomon: Yeah, and she was all like 'OH MY GOD, THAT IS SO UNPREDICTABLE!!! WHODA THOUGHT?!?!'
Renamon: How's Chris doing?
Chris: Will you stop talking about me, already?! *takes out his cell phone and dials Mike* Hey Mike guess what? *pause* No I don't have cancer!! *pause* Yeah, my ribs are fine. So...like
you ever gonna visit me, huh? *pause* Get here soon, okay? Oh, and contact the others, too. BYE!!!
*As Angelomon sipped at his juice, a mysterious green eye suddenly appeared on the juice's surface, confusing the little Digimon*
Angelomon: *eyes widen* Gah!!
Robert: What's wrong, little guy?
*Just then, the eye vanished from the surface of the juice before anyone else could see it*
Angelomon: *recoils in confusion* Okay
Renamon: What's goin' on?
Angelomon: I just saw an eye in my juice
but now it's gone.
Joey: This hospital must be gettin' to ya. Let's get out of here.
*As the three Heroes, along with their Digimon walked out of the hospital, Eva, Kevin, Mike, Jermaine and the other Digimon were seen walking up to them*
Mike: Hey, what kept you so long?
Joey: Soap opera in the waiting room.
Renamon: Quite interesting, actually. I never knew humans had so many problems...Or evil twins.
Robert: Hey Eva!
Eva: Hey. Is everything okay now?
Robert: Yeah, Chris is fine, but I can't say the same for Angelomon. He's gotten addicted to TV.
Jermaine: *sarcastically* What else is new?
Kevin: Hey Renamon, don't you get hot in that getup?
Renamon: A little, but it's tolerable. *adjusts her hat* The deserts in the Digital World are much hotter.
BlackAgumon: I'll say. How do you think I got this color?
*The Heroes and their Digimon began to look around the area for the source of the mysterious voice that had just called out for them*
Renamon: *ears perk* That voice...
Joey: *looks around the area* Where's it come from?
*Suddenly, the mysterious green eye appeared on a hospital sign for the Heroes and their Digimon to see*
Mike: *eyes widen* Whoa! Look at that!!
Kevin: *eyes widen* Hoo boy, not again!
???: I am speaking to the Digidestined, am I not?
Renamon: You don't talk to them till you tell us who you are!
???: I'd be happy to...but not here for every other human to see. I must speak to you all for important business. Meet me at your headquarters and I'll explain everything
Angelomon: Why should we trust you? How do we know your not an agent of the Supreme Ruler?
???: You'll know why soon enough, my little friend. Until then, farewell.
*The eye then quickly vanished from the hospital sign, leaving the Heroes and their Digimon puzzled*
Renamon: *raises an eyebrow* Why did that voice sound so familiar?
Chris: A general or one time minion of yours, perhaps?
Renamon: No, nothing like that, I don't think. That voice sounded so...gentle. I say we go along with what it wants.
Joey: What do you think, bro.
Robert: Hmm...If Renamonm's right, we could have gained an ally. Alright, we'll play along...just until we know what's goin' on. Everyone, to HQ, now!
*A few minutes later, The Heroes and their Digimon arrived inside the living room of their headquarters. Just then, Rixu and Cyberdramon flew in through an open window and greeted them*
Rixu: We heard this weird voice telling us to come here. So what's goin' on?
Jermaine: That's what we wanna know, dude.
???: Good, you're all here. I'm glad you could all make it.
Cyberdramon: Grrr...That's the voice!
Chris: *looks around* What's this all about?
???: Calm down and I'll explain.
Renamon: How do I know you? I know your voice...I'm sure of it.
???: Why Renamon, I'm surprised...
*Just then, a humanoid Digimon materialized into the room. He was dressed in a yellow jumpsuit, along with a red vest, brown boots and gloves, and carried a wooden staff with a golden star shapped top in his right hand. The figure's face consisted of green eyes and blonde hair, but his mouth was covered up by the large collar of a purple cape he was wearing on his shoulders. And on his head, he wore a purple wizard's hat with a skull shaped buckle at the front. This was Wizardmon*
Wizardmon: You don't recognize your old teacher?
Renamon: *gasps* WIZARDMON SENSEI!!! *kneels in front of him*
Robert: So, you do know this guy.
Renamon: *nods* Yes, Robert, I do. He taught me everything I know...from when I first joined the resistance.
Robert: *eyes widen* Really?
Wizard: *looks at Robert* Hmm... You are Robert Willis, Renamon's partner.
Robert: Um, yes sir. That's right.
Wizardmon: *nods* You're doing a fine job with my former student. I congratulate you.
Robert: Um...thank you, sir.
Wizardmon: *turns to Chris and Angelomon* Hello again, Angelomon.
Angelomon: *smiles* Hi Wizardmon
Wizardmon: *turns to Cyberdramon* Cyberdramon, good to see that you have not been captured yet.
Cyberdramon: *turns away* Yeah...thanks.
Wizardmon: *turns to Mike and Veemon* Michael and Veemon.
Veemon: *smiles* Hi Wizardmon!
Mike: *raises an eyebrow* How do you know my name?
Wizardmon: I've been watching you all, ever since Robert opened the portal to the Digital World .
Mike: *eyes widen* All...the...time?
Wizardmon: I'm surprised that you've defeated all those who were sent by the Supreme Ruler so far. Not even all in the resistance could do that in a year's time.
Angelomon: Yeah, well...we had help.
Mike: Namely us.
Wizardmon: *nods* I'm glad. *turns to Chris* Go on, Christopher, analyze me.
Chris: H-How did you...whatever. *takes out his digivice and scans Wizardmon* Wizardmon. A Champion level, Data type, Wizard Digimon. Attacks are Thunder Ball, Magic Ball, and Vision of Terror. Funny, you don't look like any Champion Digimon I've ever seen.
Wizardmon: Does Renamon look like a Rookie?
Chris: *raises an eyebrow* Touché.
Jermaine: Dang! He looks like somethin' outta Dungeons and Dragons.
Joey: Or Magic The Gathering.
Renamon: What is it you wish to tell us, Wizardmon?
Wizardmon: *sighs* I'm afraid this may shock you, my dear. The Supreme Ruler's reign has spread like wild fire throughout the Digital World. Half of the resistance has turned to the dark side and the oceans have begun to turn black. For now, the Supreme Ruler has done nothing. He's more concentrated on conquering this world before he finishes off the Digital World.
Gatomon: Oh my God.
Angelomon: N-No. What happened to Chuumon and Sukamon?
Wizardmon: I'm afraid...they now obey the Ruler, young one.
Angelomon: No... *tears stream down his cheeks*
Chris: Hey, shhh. *holds Angelomon in his arms*
Wizardmon: I'm sorry.
Mike: *narrows his eyebrows* Damn it! I just wanna smash that guy so hard in the face!!
Wizardmon: I'm afraid it won't be that easy.
Commandramon: What do you mean, Wizardmon?
Wizardmon: No one has ever seen him. We have no idea what he could do to anyone. So, Michael, smashing him in the face wouldn't be a good idea.
Chris: Great, we're fighting someone we have nothing on...
Rixu: He has a point. Even Cyberdramon has no idea what he looks like, and he's the most wanted.
Robert: So, is that all?
Wizardmon: No, it isn't, actually. I am here to observe your progress and to assist you if necessary.
Eva: Hmm...sounds risky.
Gatomon: Don't worry, Eva. Wizardmon knows how to handle himself.
Chris: What can you teach us, exactly?
Wizardmon: I wish to teach you proper Digimon fighting techniques. They may be useful the next time another enemy Digimon appears.
Kevin: *smiles* Wicked!
Chris: We've handled ourselves fine up to now.
Wizardmon: That may be, but things are only going to get more difficult later on.
Robert: *approaches Wizardmon* As leader of the Digimon Heroes, I accept your help, Wizardmon. *extends his hand* Welcome to the team.
Wizardmon: *shakes Robert's hand* Thank you, Robert.
Chris: *rolls his eyes* Whatever...I'm strong enough.
Eva: I hope you enjoy your stay.
Renamon: *nods* As do I.
*Later that afternoon, Renamon sat on top of the roof, hanging her legs off the side, staring out into the city. Just then, Robert approached her from behind, looking concerned*
Robert: Is something wrong?
Renamon: The Digital World is so...torn. But this world is so peaceful.
Robert: Not always, actually. *sits next to Renamon* Renamon, what was it like...when you joined the resistance?
Renamon: Cold. The other Digimon didn't trust me because of who I had been
I felt alone but Wizardmon came up to me, talked to me, befriended me, and taught others that I wasn't a General anymore
*A camp, somewhere in the Digital World. A fire was going as some of the Digimon were gathered around it for warmth. Amung them were Dinohyumon and Grizzlymon. Dinohyumon was a tall humanoid dinosaur Digimon with green and light orange skin, wearing colorful Native American attire, complete with feather on top of his head, and a gigantic knife strapped to his back. Grizzlymon looked like a large bear with blue and white fur with a moon shaped tattoo on his forehead and red shoulder guards and clawed gauntlets on his frearms. Just then, Angelomon came running up to them, looking exhausted*
Dinohyumon: *points* Look, it's Angelomon!
Angelomon: *panting* Phew! I'm beat...
*Just then, Renamon was seen running up from behind Angelomon, dressed in her purple armor. As soon as Dinohyumon and Grizzlymon saw her, they sprang into action*
Dinohyumon: It's her! General Renamon!! *takes out his large knife from his back*
Grizzlymon: Hold your ground!! *bares his claws*
Angelomon: NO!!! She's one of us, you guys! She wants to fight with us!!
Dinohyumon: Don't be daft, puppy!! She's a murderer!!
Angelomon: But it's true, I saw her turn against her own troops! I swear on my honor that she's joined our side!
Grizzlymon: It's a trick!! Why would one of the Supreme Ruler's generals join us?!
Renamon: I'll go...it's obvious you won't sway them, Angelomon. *turns to leave*
*Just then, Darcmon appeared out of the shadows, with Wizardmon at her side*
Dinohyumon: *eyes widen* Darcmon, Wizardmon, sir!
Wizardmon: It is all right, I've just spoken with Darcmon. Renamon is allowed to stay, unless you want to go against her word.
Dinohyumon: *looks nervous* Uh...No, sir!
Angelomon: *grins smugly* Hmm...
Grizzlymon: We'll take your word for it. *walks off*
Dinohyumon: What he said. *follows Grizzlymon*
Renamon: I-I don't wish to be any trouble...
Wizardmon: On the contrary. Darcmon has also put me in charge of instructing you, general.
Renamon: What? But why?
Darcmon: Because I believe you need further training than what the enemy has already trained you in. Besides, everyone needs a second chance. *smiles*
Renamon: I understand. *bows* Thank you for giving me that second chance, d'Arcmon. You truly are an honorable Digimon.
Darcmon: You're welcome. *bows* I'll leave you to your training now. *walks away*
Angelomon: See ya around Renamon! *flies off toward his tent*
Wizardmon: We begin your training in the morning. Is that understood?
Renamon: Yes...Wizardmon sensei.
Wizardmon: Now, come on. Darcmon is about to make a very important speech.
Renamon: Do you think it will be revolution?
Wizardmon: We'll just have to see for ourselves.
*The next morning, Wizardmon and Renamon were standing out in the digital grassfields just outside of the camp*
Wizardmon: All right, Renamon, before we begin your training, I must ask...why do you wear that armor?
Renamon: It was what I was ordered to do by my comman - I mean, the Supreme Ruler...
Wizardmon: And what purpose has it served so far?
Renamon: It has protected me against weak attacks and shows distinction among the ranks
Wizardmon: Remove it.
Renamon: *raises an eyebrow* Sensei?
Wizardmon: Your training will begin once you've removed your armor. You won't be needing it.
Renamon: As you wish, sensei. *removes her armor, piece by piece* Wow! I feel so...free without it.
Wizardmon: Excellent. Let the training begin then.
Renamon: Yes sir!
*Soon, there was a montage Renamon training with Wizardmon on different Digimon fighting techniques*
Renamon: *narrating* Wizardmon taught me how to fight with others, not just on my own. He taught me how to talk with others and how to be stronger by believing in myself...
*A week later, Wizardmon and Renamon were sitting Indian style on the floor of Wizardmon's tent, learning the art of meditation*
Wizardmon: Remember, my student, meditation requires absolute concentration. Remove all anger, focus on inner peace. You are calm, relaxed, and one with tranquility.
Renamon: Yes, sensei...*closes her eyes*
Wizardmon: Anger is a weakness. Positive thinking is your strength.
Renamon: Ommm...*slowly floats off of the ground*
Wizardmon: *eyes widen* Renamon, open your eyes! You're doing it, you're doing it!
Renamon: *outwardly pleased with herself* Hmm...
*Later, Wizardmon and Renamon bowed to each other, looking rather pleased with each other*
Wizardmon: Well done, Renamon. You have completed your training.
Renamon: Thank you...for everything, Wizardmon.
Wizardmon: Now, I have something for you. *pulls out a box from his cape* It's not exactly armor, but I think you'll be needing them. *opens the box to reveal purple gauntlets with a yin yang on each one*
Renamon: Oh my. *takes out the gauntlets and puts them on her arms* I don't know how to thank you enough, sensei...
Wizardmon: It is nothing. Now, you must prepare yourself...for your partner.
Renamon: *raises an eyebrow* My...partner?
Wizard: Do you know why I have been training you?
Renamon: I was not informed, no...Why was it?
Wizardmon: I have been training you not to fight for the resistance, but for when you travel to the Human World.
Renamon: The Human World? But am I not needed here? My information of the Supreme Ruler's camps must be invaluable for battle.
Wizardmon: I didn't say you were leaving immediately. Yes, your information is needed here, but when the time comes, you are needed in the Human World.
Renamon: Is he trying to take their world as well?
Wizardmon: In time, he will try. I predict that one day, a portal will open from the Human World. When it does, you must go through it. But I'm afraid it will mean that other evil Digimon will be able to travel to the Human World as well. That is the reason I have been training you.
Renamon: I see. How long do you think it is before the portal opens?
Wizardmon: It may open at any day, any month, or any year.
Renamon: So...we wait?
Wizardmon: I'm afraid so. Now let me introduce the human you shall be partnered with. *raises his staff*
*As Wizardmon waved his staff, a small window opened in on Robert in his black clothes, sitting on a stoop in new York city*
Renamon: Humans look so strange.
Wizardmon: You may think different, because that's your partner.
thing is my partner
a Botamon looks stronger than him.
Wizardmon: His name is Robert Willis. He lives in the city of New York. A few years ago, he lost his father in a tragic incident. Ever since then, he's been grieving and has gone down a bad path. He needs someone to set him straight.
Renamon: And I'm the one to do it, right? I guess if it happened to me...it can happen to him.
Wizardmon: Exactly. And only if you are partnered with him, can you achieve the ultimate goal...digivolution.
Renamon: *gasps* Digivolution? I thought that was something only the Supreme Ruler could grant.
Wizardmon: No, The Supreme Ruler may be able to grant it to his followers...but only those pure of heart can achieve it on their own.
Renamon: Sounds like a long shot.
Wizardmon: I have faith in you, my child. *hugs Renamon*
Renamon: *returns the hug* Thank you...
Renamon: *narrating* Two years later, we were betrayed by our leader, Darcmon.
*Suddenly, there was a scene of Darcmon and an Airdramon squadron attacking the Digimon Resistance, destroying everything in their path*
Angelomon: *gets kicked by d'Arcmon* AAAHHH!!! *crashes to the ground* Why, Darcmon...why?
Darcmon: *lands in front on Angelomon* Now, Angelomon, this can all be avoided if you just join me and The Supreme Ruler.
Angelomon: NEVER!!! I will never join that freak!
Darcmon: *narrows her eyebrows* Then perish! *raises her staff*
*Suddenly, Renamon rushed in, grabbed Angelomon and began running away toward the mountains*
Darcmon: Come back here! *flies off after them*
Renamon: Fool! why did you try and take her on your own!?
Angelomon: LET ME AT THAT WITCH!!!!
Renamon: We have to retreat, my friend!
*Renamon ran as fast as lightning with Angelomon held tightly in her arms. But siddenly, they found themselves trapped between two large rock structures as Darcmon had them cornered*
Renamon: We're trapped!
Angelomon: Not for long! *gets free from Renamon's grasp* DIVE BOMB!!!
Darcmon: *dodges the attack* Ha ha ha!! Pitiful! And now for you, general Renamon. Sad really, you could have been a great conqueror.
Renamon: I'd rather die first! Diamond Storm!!
Darcmon: *swats at the attack* Fools!
*But just then, Wizardmon jumped in front of Renamon and Angelomon, looking ready to attack*
Wizardmon: You shall not have them, traitor! Thunder Ball!! *fires a lightning bolt at her from his wand*
d'Arcmon: *is hit by the attack* AUGH!!!!
Renamon: *eyes widen* Wizardmon?
Wizardmon: *turns to Renamon* I wouldn't let my star pupil get hurt, now would I?
Renamon: *shakes her head* NO!!! Save yourself!! I beg you!!
Darcmon: *recovers from the attack* You ungrateful sorcerer!! You shall be deleted for this!!
*Suddenly, a gigantic bolt of lightning struck the ground, creating a large crater. Soon, it was followed by several more large lightning bolts, striking all around the grass fields. The Digimon then looked up to see the clouds above beginning to swirl around, creating a massive wind storm*
Angelomon: What the frak?
Wizardmon: *pause* It's time!
*Just then, a giant glowing portal was seen forming inside the swirling clouds, sucking up almost everything into it*
Wizardmon: *eyes widen* Robert has activated the disc! The portal is open!
Renamon: I understand
I must go now!! Goodbye, my friends!! *jumps up into the sky and into the portal*
Angelomon: *tries to follow, but his tail is grabbed by Wizardmon* Wizardmon? Let me go, I can help her!!
Wizardmon: No, my friend! Now is not your time to go to the Human World!!
*Soon, the winds began to die down and the portal began to swirl away into the sky, disappearing from sight*
Renamon: *narrating* That's when I appeared in New York and I was amazed
but I knew my mission and
Robert: *narrating* I know the rest. That's when you found me. I refused at first, but then when Parrotmon appeared
you saved me. And then you digivolved into Kyubimon and blew him away!!
and it's all thanks to you.
Robert: No, it was because of Wizardmon.
Renamon: *smirks* Yeah
well, he helped.
???: I heard that.
*Robert and Renamon quickly turned around to see Wizardmon standing behind them*
Robert: Wizardmon, were you standing there this whole time?
Wizardmon: Yes. You tell a good story, Renamon.
Renamon: It comes from listening to all your old anecdotes of the times before the war, Wizardmon.
Wizardmon: *nods* May I have a moment alone with you?
Renamon: Sure. Robert?
Robert: It's okay with me. I'll leave you two alone. *gets up and walks away*
Renamon: Is it really as bad as you said it was?
Wizardmon: *sits next to Renamon* Actually
it gets worse. We've received word from our spies that the Supreme Ruler is working on a secret weapon. One that could destroy this world once and for all.
Renamon: Damn! This isn't what we need right now...
Wizardmon: I warned you that things would be difficult here.
Renamon: Emergences of Digimon are increasing. d'Arcmon herself even came here once.
Wizardmon: Actually, twice. But I don't think she is completely lost. Angewomon actually tried to help her. But she wounded herself and spared their lives.
Renamon: Do you think the brainwashing is wearing off?
Wizardmon: Maybe. But we won't be sure for a while. Renamon, will you help me train the other Digimon tomorrow?
Renamon: Yes. You know I will, Wizardmon.
Wizardmon: Good. *stands up* I'm sure you'll be as good a teacher to them as I was to you. *begins to walk away*
Renamon: *stands up* Wait!
Renamon: *hugs Wizardmon* I missed you
Wizardmon: *hugs Renamon back* And I missed you, my daughter.
