*It was a late Saturday morning in New York City. In his bedroom, Mike was eating cereal while watching TV with Veemon, who was eating buttered toast*
Veemon: *mouth full* So, what are we gonna do today?
Mike: So far, just sit back, watch TV, maybe look at some youtube videos
and that's all I can think of at the moment.
Veemon: What about the others? Maybe we could meet up with them and do something?
Mike: Yeah, like what?
Veemon: I dunno, maybe hang out at the park when no one's around, sneak in to see a movie, anything really. I'm just so bored being here most of the time.
Mike: You do know I have a Wii, right?
Veemon: I know, but I already beat most of the games you have, even beat some of your high scores on Wii Sports.
Mike: You're kidding, right?
Veemon: See for yourself!
*Suddenly, the ground began to shake lightly, as some of the objects in Mike's room began to move around slightly. Mike and Veemon could almost feel the ground move as well, feeling a slight quiver from their feet*
Mike: Whoa! What's going on?
Veemon: Earthquake maybe?
Mike: We don't get earthquakes in New York!
Veemon: Whatever it is, it's pretty strong!
*Soon enough, the tremors had stopped and all was at peace. Mike and Veemon regained composure, still feeling a little shaky from the tremors*
Mike: Okay, that wasn't normal!
Veemon: Well, it could've been worse... What do you think it was?
Mike: I'm not totally sure... But if I had to guess, I'd have to say--
*Just then, the phone on Mike's bedside table began to ring. Quicklt, Mike went over, picked it up, and held the phone to his ear*
Robert: *on the other line* Mike, it's me. You and Veemon alright?
Mike: Yeah, man. Aside from a few things that were knocked over, we're fine. What do you think that was?
Robert: *on the other line* Well, it sure as hell wasn't an earthquake. Take a look on the news. Channel 6.
Mike: Gotchya! *picks up the remote and switches to the news on TV*
News Anchor on TV: A sudden, but small earthquake affected the city of New York just a minute ago today. Geologists say that these tremors are moving along a path and predict they will reach Central Park within half an hour. However, the cause of this moving epicenter is still unknown. There are those that say a huge living being is moving underground.
Veemon: *raises an eyebrow* Living being, eh?
Mike: *goes back to the phone* Hear that, Rob?
Robert: *on the other line* Yeah. It looks like something big, and definitely has 'Digimon' written all over the scene.
Mike: Should I call the others?
Robert: *on the other line* No, I think we might be able to handle it ourselves, since Renamon's coming with us.
Mike: You sure?
Robert: *on the other line* If we have to, we'll call the others later. But let's go now before something else happen.
Mike: Okay, where should we meet you?
Robert: *on the other line* Meet us at Central Park, out by the baseball field.
Mike: Okay, see you then. *hangs up* Come on, Veemon, we're going to Central Park!
*Twenty minutes later, Mike and Veemon were near the baseball field in Central Park, hiding from anyone who might be walking around, while waiting for Robert and Renamon*
Mike: Jeez, I thought the park would've been evacuated by now.
Veemon: They're probably holding it off in case it doesn't get here.
Mike: But it's gonna! The geologists said it would. *looks around* What's taking Robert and Renamon? They said they'd be here!
Veemon: You don't think they got caught up by a Digimon attack?
Mike: When the Digimon's still underground?
Veemon: It's just a guess
*Just then, Robert arrived on the baseball fields and began calling out for Mike. Knowing it was safe, Mike and Veemon came out if hiding and walked up to Robert*
Robert: Good to see you guys. Any problems?
Mike: No. Though I question why the park wasn't evacuated. Where's Renamon?
Renamon: *appears* Present.
Robert: I'm wondering about that as well. The park is huge, but they probably don't know how much of a threat this Digimon can be.
Mike: What do you think it is anyway, a giant mole or something?
Renamon: It could be a Drimogemon. They have a large drill as a nose on their faces, which makes it easy for them to drill underground.
Veemon: Aren't they usually harmless?
Renamon: True... But whatever is down there is powerful enough to cause those tremors.
Mike: So, what now? Just sit here and wait for it to burst out of thr ground, or do we search the entire freakin' park?
Robert: At this point, we'll have to search the park. If we feel another tremor, we can at least try and track it down.
Veemon: Do we go together or split up? *gulps* Please say the first one...
Robert: We'll split into two groups. Renamon and I will search the forest areas while you two check around the baseball fields.
Mike: But what if the Digimon shows up, and you're too far away to call?
Robert: *pulls out his cell phone* Duh, just call me on my cell phone.
Veemon: Oh yeah... Right.
*Suddenly, the group began to feel the earth shake fiercely, as another tremor had hit New York. This time, it was stronger than before, as it caused them to fall to the ground*
Mike: HOLY CRAP!!!
Veemon: Does this mean we can track it now?
Robert: Not much of a choice, really.
Mike: But how are we going to track it?
Renamon: I think we can help with that, Robert. Most Digimon are capable of hearing different sounds from miles away.
Robert: I could tell by the ears. But what about Veemon?
Veemon: They may look crooked, but I can still hear just as well as she can.
Robert: Okay then. Remember, call us if you see anything. Come on, Renamon. *walks off*
Renamon: Right. *follows after Robert*
Mike: Alright, just be careful, guys. Well, let's go, Veemon.
*Mike and Veemon began searching through the many baseball fields in the park. While they were trying to find the source of the tremor, they also kept an eye out for places to hide in case any pedestrians were walking around*
Mike: Well, I'm more bored than cautious now.
Veemon: Well, it was better to do something than just stay in your room all day. Besides, this could be something big...
Mike: Then why hasn't it showed up yet? For all we know, it could've left the city.
Veemon: If it did, we would've seen it by now. Where would it go if it escaped?
Mike: *pause* New Jersey?
Veemon: Well-- *ears perk* Wait! I think I got something.
Veemon: It's close... Whatever it is, it's close...
Mike: I don't feel anything.
Veemon: It sounds like a heavy breather.
Mike: Is it that mole Digimon with a drill like Renamon said?
Veemon: No, I don't hear any drills. That's how you can tell it's them.
Mike: Then what is it?
Veemon: I'm not sure... But it doesn't sound friendly...
Mike: After Parrotmon and Ogremon, I wouldn't be surprised.
Veemon: We're gonna need help. Where's Renamon and Robert?
Mike: Hold on, I'll call them. *takes out his cell phone*
*Suddenly, the ground began to shake in stronger quakes, as large mounds began to form into hills around the baseball fields*
Veemon: Oh no, it's here!!
Mike: No kidding! *quickly dials Robert's number* C'mon, pick up!! PICK UP!!!
Robert: *on the other line* Mike, see anything?
Mike: Oh, you could say that! IT'S SOMETHING BIG!!!
Robert: *on the other line* Stay right there, we're coming! *hangs up*
Mike: Brace yourself, Veemon... This won't be pretty...
*Suddenly, the ground shook again as a hill began to burst open. Then, a giant orange beetle-like Digimon with sharp teeth and large mandibles climbed out from out of the ground and gave out a loud and terrifying roar. This was Kuwagamon*
Mike: *eyes widen* Damn!! That is one big cockroach!!
Veemon: It's Kuwagamon!
Mike: Hold on! *pulls out his digivice and scans Kuwagamon* Kuwagamon. A Champion level, Virus type, Insectoid Digimon. His attacks are Scissors Claw and Power Guillotine.
Mike: ROBERT, WHERE ARE YOU?!?!
*Kuwagamon then swung one of its claws at Mike and Veemon, but fortunately, the two were quick enough to dodge as the giant insect Digimon tore away about a mound of dirt from the baseball field, as well as one of the plates*
Veemon: Jeez! He's tearing up the whole field!
Mike: Think you can distract him till the others get here?
Veemon: I don't think I'm quick enough to keep him occupied!
Mike: At least try!
Veemon: All right! *turns to Kuwagamon* Hey, stink beetle! Over here!
Kuwagamon: AAAARRRRUUUUGGGG!!!! *lunges for Veemon*
Veemon: *dodges the attack* Well, that just made him angrier!
Mike: Use Vee Headbutt!!
Veemon: All right! Vee Headbutt!! *charges and rams into Kuwagamon's stomach*
Kuwagamon: *stumbles from the attack, but regains balance* AAAAUUUURRRRGGGGHHHH!!!! *swats away Veemon*
Mike: VEEMON, NO!!!
Veemon: *hits the ground* I'm okay... Ugh...
Mike: Oh crap!
*Just then, Renamon appeared out of thin air and drop kicked Kuwagamon in the face*
Veemon: *sits up, still in pain* What took ya so long?
Robert: *runs onto the scene* We went off a little farther than we thought.
Mike: Well, watch out! This bug's one mean S.O.B!!
Renamon: *nods* Duly noted. DIAMOND STORM!!!
*Kuwagamon blocked the attack with its hard shell and snapped his pincers at Renamon. Luckily, she was able to evade them. Unfortunately, Mike was snatched up instead*
Mike: *struggling* For the love of God, GET IT OFF ME!!!
Robert: Hold on, Mike!! Renamon, we gotta get him outta there!!
Renamon: I'm on it! DIAMOND STORM!!!
Kuwagamon: *blocks the attack with one of his claws* AAAUUURRRGGGHHH!!! *lunges for Renamon*
Renamon: *avades* WHOA! He's not happy!
Mike: *coughs* It's getting...really hard...to breath here!!
Kuwagamon: AAAUUURRRGGGHHH!!! *opens his wings*
Robert: Oh crap, he can fly!! We can't let him get into the city!!
Veemon: But what about Mike? We can't just let him get crushed between those pincers! I won't let that happen!!
*Just then, Mike's digivice began to glow from inside his pocket. Veemon then began to glow as well*
Veemon: Whoa! I feel weird!
Renamon: You're digivolving!
Veemon: All right!! *digivolves* VEEMON DIGIVOLVE TO...EXVEEMON!!!!
*Robert, Renamon, and Kuwagamon stared in awe at the new Digimon, ExVeemon. He looked a lot like Veemon, except he was about sixteen feet tall with a large muscular body structure, a long metallic horn on the end of his nose, a silver X on his chest, and a pair of white reptilian wings on his back. He stared at Kuwagamon, snarling and showing off his sharp teeth at the Digimon who had his partner in his insectoid claws*
ExVeemon: Alright, Kuwagamon... LET'S RUMBLE!!! VEE-LASER!!! *smits an energy wave from the "X" pattern on his chest*
*Kuwagamon was hit by the attack and went flying backwards, dropping Mike in the process. Luckily, ExVeemon caught him and gently set him down on the ground*
Mike: *eyes widen* Whoa! Veemon, you're a bodybuilder, man!
ExVeemon: I'm ExVeemon now!! Stay here, I have a bug to squish! *flies toward Kuwagamon* CRITICAL CRUNCH!!! *chomps on Kuwagamon's leg*
Kuwagamon: AAAARRRRUUUUGGGG!!!! *suddenly opens its mandibles and bites ExVeemon on the arm*
ExVeemon: *in pain* GAAAH!!! That's cheatin'!! *kicks Kuwagamon in the gut*
Kuwagamon: *releases ExVeemon's arm* AAAARRRRUUUUGGGG!!!!
Robert: *looks at Renamon* Think we should help?
Let him do this on his own.
Kuwagamon: *slashes at ExVeemon with its claws* AAAARRRRUUUUGGGG!!!!
ExVeemon: *dodges* Whoa, whoa, whoa!! Okay bug-brain, prepare to be exterminated!! VEE-LASER!!
Kuwagamon: *is hit by the attack* AAAUUURRRGGGHHH!!! *dissolves into a stream of data*
ExVeemon: *absorbs the data* Ah! That hit the spot!
Mike: ALRIGHT, EXVEEMON!!!
Robert: *pulls out his digivice and scans ExVeemon* Hmm
ExVeemon. A Champion level, Data type, Phantom Dragon Digimon. His attacks are Vee-Laser, Critical Crunch, and X-Tornado.
Renamon: Congratulations, ExVeemon, on your first digivolution.
ExVeemon: Thanks, Renamon. *looks at Mike* You too, Mike.
Mike: What for? I should be thanking you for saving our lives!
ExVeemon: But I wouldn't have been able to digivolve if it weren't for you.
Mike: But I wouldn't even be here if it weren't for you.
ExVeemon: Let's just call it even, okay?
Mike: Sounds fair to me.
*Just then, ExVeemon de-digivolved back into Veemon and jumped around in joy*
Veemon: *pumps his fists into the air* Wahoo!! That was awesome!! Let's do it again!!
Mike: Maybe in another battle. Besides, you'd waste more energy if you stayed in that form.
Veemon: I guess so...
Mike: Now let's go home, I feel like I need a shower from all that.
Robert: Yeah, you smell like monster drool.
Mike: Hey, I was caught by a giant bug.
Robert: Just saying. *chuckles*
Mike: Whatever, let's just go...
*So Robert, Mike and their Digimon made their way out of Central Park and back towards home*
