*It was late afternoon in New York City. Joey was all by himself at the bus stop, waiting for the bus to come along to take him Central Park to meet up with his brother and a few of his other friends*
Joey: *sighs* Waiting for the bus in New York City... Yay... God is this boring... Here I am, waiting for a bus during the busiest hour of traffic, while trying to get to a meeting in Central Park about who knows what... If traffic wasn't so much of an issue, I'd be there by now... It's just so boring! Just once I hope for something interesting to happen...
*Suddenly, a strange 'SCHWOOM' sound and a gust of wind quickly caught Joey's attention from the alleyway behind him*
Joey: Uh oh...
*Joey turned around to see a cloud of fog coming out of the alleyway, along with an enormous black shape in the distance*
Joey: *gulps* Me and my big mouth...
*As Joey cautiously walked into the alleyway, the fog dissipated to reveal that the large shadowed figure in the corner was a giant rabbit with it's back turned to him. It had three small horns on its head, long arms with large hands, a large collar with gold lining, along a scarf tied around its neck, red armor plating covering its chest, and pale violet leggings with pointed toes and coat tails. This was Antylamon*
Joey: *eyes widen* Whoa, nelly... *slowly backs away and reaches for his cell phone*
Antylamon: *ears perk* Is someone there?
Joey: Oh god... *backs away a little faster*
Antylamon: *turns to face Joey* Who's there?
Joey: OH GOD!!! *turns and starts running away*
Antylamon: Wait! Don't run! *reaches out and grabs Joey*
Joey: *struggling in Antylamon's grip* AAAHHH!!! HELP!!! HELP!!! LET ME GO!!!
Antylamon: Calm down, calm down! I'm not going to hurt you!
Joey: Oh yeah!? Tell that to the other giant monsters that attacked the city!!
Antylamon: Other giant monsters? You mean there have been other Digimon here?
Joey: Yeah! First there was that giant parrot a couple of nights ago, then this really mean green ogre thing, and then there was this giant orange beetle monster!! You wanna try it next, I'll call my brother and he'll beat you like he did all the others!!
Antylamon: Now, hold on! I'm not like those two. Besides, I haven't caused any trouble whatsoever.
Joey: *slowly calms down* Okay, I might believe you... But I'm still gonna be cautious. Now, who are you?
Antylamon: My name is Antylamon, warrior of the Digital World. What's your's?
Joey: Joey... Joey Willis.
Antylamon: Nice to meet you. I must say, I never knew creatures like you were small.
Joey: Well, I've never seen anything as big as you before. What are you, twenty feet tall?
Antylamon: Twenty-five, actually... The only Digimon I know who was close to your height was Renamon.
Joey: Wait! You know Renamon?
Antylamon: Oh yes. I've known her for years... It's been a while since I last saw her. I heard she went into another world, so I tried to look for her... Wait, do you know her?
Joey: Yeah, she's my brother's partner. She helped him destroy all those other Digimon I told you about.
Antylamon: So she IS here. That's wonderful! Where can I find her?
Joey: She's at Central Park with my brother. I was about to take a bus there when I ran into you.
Antylamon: How far away is this Central Park?
Joey: A long way's from here, right in the middle of the city.
Antylamon: Maybe I could help with the travel.
Joey: Hmm, I don't know. You're an awfully big target, people are gonna see you.
Antylamon: You'd be surprised at how fast I move
Joey: Okay... If you say so. But...could you loosen your grip, please?
Antylamon: *loosens her grip on Joey* Oh, sorry.
Joey: Now, put me down and I'll sneak you across the street.
Antylamon: What if someone sees me?
Joey: Didn't you say you were fast?
Antylamon: All right then, lead the way... *gently puts Joey back on the ground*
Joey: Lemme check for people first. *goes to the opening of the alley and checks for people* Okay, all clear. *runs across the road and signals for Antylamon* Come on!
*Antylamon quickly leapt across the road in one bound, almost hitting an oncoming semi truck*
Trucker 1: *eyes widen* Whoa!! Did you see that?
Trucker 2: *yawns* No, I was sleeping.
Trucker 1: BUT YOU'RE DRIVING!!!
Joey: *eyes widen* Whoa, that was fast!
Antylamon: I told you so. Anyway, which way is Central Park?
Joey: Hmm... I'm not sure, exactly. I usually take the bus there.
Antylamon: *looks up* Perhaps we could get a better view from above? *grabs Joey and puts him on top of her head* Can you see now?
Joey: Whoa! Thanks! *looks around then points west* There, go that way! Run!
Antylamon: Are you sure?
Joey; Yeah, yeah!! Go on, run!
Antylamon: All right, you asked for it! *runs as fast as lightning, with Joey hanging onto her ears*
Joey: *eyes widen* WHOA!!!!
*Meanwhile, in Central Park, Robert and Mike were talking to Chris about the incident with Kuwagamon the day before*
Mike: And then Veemon digivolved into ExVeemon!
Chris: Just like that?
Chris: Hmm... Now if only I knew when Cheery McSunshine was gonna digivolve.
Angelomon: I can't wait!
Robert: You know, I think our Digimon digivolve whenever one of us is in trouble. Like when Parrotmon buried me in tons of rubble with Renamon, she digivolved into Kyubimon.
Chris: How's about I beat you up, would your Digimon digivolve then?
Mike: I don't think it works like that.
Chris: ARG!!! I WANNA FIGHT SOME WHACKED OUT DIGIMON!!! *pulls out his digivice* Doesn't this stupid thing tell us if there's one around?!
*Just then, Chris' digivice glowed as a radar appeared on the screen, showing a moving signal*
Chris: Wow... I got my wish.
Robert: There's a Digimon around here?
Chris: Obviously. Angelomon, what's your nose say?
Angelomon: *sniffs the air* Ooh, there's a big Digimon around here... Not too far.
Chris: How big?
Angelomon: About... *sniffs the air again* Twenty-five feet tall.
Robert: You can tell its size just by sniffing the air?
Angelomon: With Digimon that large, I can smell them over a mile away.
Robert: Renamon, I need you!!
Renamon: *appears next to Robert* You called?
Robert: Yeah, there's a giant Digimon coming our way!
Renamon: I'll go for higher ground, see if I can spot it...
Chris: No need. According to my radar, it'll be here within a few seconds.
Was that Joey's voice?
*Just then, Joey was seen riding atop Antylamon, who was running super fast towards the group*
Angelomon: They're coming right at us!!
Joey: There they are! STOP!!!!
Antylamon: Gotchya!! *comes to a skidding halt*
Chris: HOLY CRAP!!! WATCH OUT!!!
Antylamon: *stops in front of the group, kicking up a cloud of dust from all the skidding* Sorry about that...
Joey: *waves* Hi guys!!
Robert: Joey?! How did...? Where...? What...?
Antylamon: *puts Joey in her hand and sets him down on the ground* Watch your step.
Joey: Thanks. *hops off Antylamon's hand* Hey Renamon, Antylamon here's been looking for you.
Renamon: Antylamon... My old friend.
Antlyamon: Hello, Renamon. It's been a while.
Chris: *gets out digivice and scans Antylamon* Antylamon. An Ultimate level, Data type, Exalted Beast Digimon. Attacks are Bunny Blades and Asipatravana... Whatever that is.
Robert: She sure is...tall.
We grow as we digivolve. The digivolution line goes from Baby, to In-Training, then to Rookie, Champion, and Ultimate. There's also a further level, but not many Digimon know of it. *turns to the others* Now if you'll please excuse me, Antylamon and I need to talk alone.
*Antylamon then picked up Renamon and took her further away from the others tp have their hushed discussion*
Angelomon: *ears perked* I know what they're talking about...
Chris: What is it?
Angelomon: Sorry, I'm not allowed to tell you.
Chris: *sighs* Figures...
Mike: Veemon, do you know what they're talking about?
Veemon: Yup, but I'm not allowed to tell, either!
Robert: Whatever they're saying must be very important...
Veemon: Oh, it is.
Chris: Well, they better hurry up, we've got important things to go over...
*Just then, a low rumbling sound was heard from out of nowhere, startling thr group and their Digimon*
Chris: *pause* What the hell was that?
Robert: Whatever it was, it doesn't sounds good... Renamon! Can you go above and see what it is?
Antylamon: Oh, sorry! That was just my stomach. *sweat drops* Heh, heh...
Robert: I see... *looks at his wrist watch* Well, it is getting close to dinner.
Chris: *eyes widen* AAAAHHHH!!!! I FORGOT ABOUT WORK!!!! Okay, can you guys look after Angelomon?
Mike: Sure, no problem, dude.
Chris: On second thought, come to my workplace. They give you tons of food for cheap.
Robert: Okay. *turns to Renamon* Coming, Renamon?
Renamon: Well, I would come, but I'm worried about Antylamon. We can't take her with us...
Joey: She could stay here in the park. I'm sure it's big enough for her to hide in.
Renamon: *turns to Antylamon* Do you think you'll be alright by yourself?
Antylamon: Sure, I'll be fine. See you afterwards?
Renamon: *jumps down from Antylamon's hand* Of course.
Joey: I can bring you back something if you want. What do you eat?
Antylamon: Do you have any Gigaberries?
Joey: *raises an eyebrow* Giga...berries?
Antylamon: I guess that's a "no" then... Not surprised, really. They're bigger than any other fruit.
Chris: Would you settle for blueberry pancakes?
Antylamon: I suppose that'll be fine, thanks.
Chris: All right then, let's get going. *walks off*
Joey: We'll be back in a few hours, okay, Antylamon?
Antylamon: All right...
Robert: Chris, wait up! *follows Chris out of the park*
Renamon: See you in a bit, Antylamon. *teleports into thin air*
*Soon, Mike, Veemon and Joey followed suit as they all left the park, leaving Antylamon all alone*
Antylamon: Well, this may be a while...
*A while later, the group and their Digimon had arrived at the pancake restaurant Chris worked at called "Reggie's Café". Chris went into the kitchen to change into his work uniform while the others sat on stools in front of the counter. A few minutes later, Chris came out in a plain black t-shirt and black trousers, along with a plain white apron*
Chris: *takes out notepad and pen* All right, what'll ya have?
Robert: *looks at a menu* One big stack. *looks at Renamon* Make that two.
Chris: Don't worry about the Digimon being seen, guys. It's the cosplay convention today. *writes down two big stacks on his notepad* Want anything extra with that?
Mike: *looks at a menu* A milkshake.
Veemon: Make that two!!
Chris: *writes down three shakes* Any particular flavors?
Chris: *writes down 'nilla and chocX2 on his notepad* Okay, I'll just get your orders.
*Chris then walked into the kitchen to fix up the group's orders. A few minutes later, he came back with the milkshakes*
Chris: Here you are. *puts the milkshakes down on the counter*
Chris: Okay, your stacks will be ready in a few minutes. *goes back into the kitchen*
*Just then, Kevin and BlackAgumon walked into the café, quickly noticing the others and their Digimon*
Kevin: Hi guys.
Mike: Hey Kevin!
Joey: Hi Kevin, hey BlackAgumon.
Chris: *walks out of the kitchen with a plate of pancakes* Here you are. *puts the plate down in front of Robert and Renamon*
Robert: Oh boy. *begins to eat his pancakes*
Chris: Enjoy. *goes to the other customers and takes their orders*
Kevin: Ooh, pancakes! *sits down with the others*
BlackAgumon: Awesome! *sits down next to Kevin*
Robert: Go on, Renamon, eat up.
Renamon: *stares at the pancakes* I'm just curious as to what these are...
Robert: I'm guessing you don't have pancakes in the Digital World.
Renamon: Not really...
Robert: Go on, try them!
Renamon: *hesitantly* Well, all right... *takes a bite of one of the pancakes in her stack* Oh my... *takes another bite* This is delicious!
Robert: See, I knew you'd like it!
Kevin: Big deal! BlackAgumon here started eating pancakes days ago. Which is why we're here.
BlackAgumon: Feed me, feed me, feed me!!
Kevin: Calm down, buddy. We'll fill ya right up.
Mike: *shouts* Hey Chris!
Chris: *walks over* Yes?
Mike: BlackAgumon wants some pancakes.
Chris: *looks at BlackAgumon as his eyes widen* You want THAT to be fed?
Kevin: He insists.
BlackAgumon: *hops onto a stool* Yeah!
Chris: *sighs* Okay. *adds another stack of pancakes onto his notepad and goes into the kitchen to get some*
Kevin: So, wassup? Anything interesting happen today?
Joey: Well... I met a Digimon.
BlackAgumon: Was it a Virus type?
Joey: No... But it was HUGE.
Kevin: Rob kick its ass?
Robert: She didn't attack us. She was a friendly Digimon. She even knew Renamon.
Kevin: *raises an eyebrow* Really?
Renamon: We've been friends since we met in the Digital World...
Chris: *comes back with more pancakes* Here's your order. *puts the plate down in front of BlackAgumon* Enjoy.
BlackAgumon: Yummy!! *scarfs down the whole stack*
Kevin: Well, why was she here?
Joey: She just wanted to talk to Renamon.
Kevin: About what?
Joey: I don't know, it was private. For Digimon ears only. Anyway, she's hiding out at Central Park right now, I promised to bring her back something to eat afterward.
Kevin: Are you sure she should be there? What if someone sees her? I mean, how big is she exactly?
Renamon: Twenty-five feet tall.
Kevin: JESU-- *clears his throat* That sounds like an easy target to spot.
Robert: Well, Central park is the biggest piece of greenery in the city. Can't be that hard to hide in.
Kevin: Well, I suppose so...
Joey: I just hope no one DOES find her...
Robert: I'm sure she'll be all right, Joey.
*Back at Central Park, Antylamon was sitting under a tall tree, looking rather lonely*
Antylamon: Hmm? That's funny... All of a sudden I feel so...lonely. Why do I feel this way? All I can think about is that kid, Joey. I wonder where he is... I better go look for him.
*Antylamon then got up and walked towards the road outside of Central Park. Once she came to the street, she looked both ways for oncoming cars. Seeing that no cars were coming. Antylamon ran across the road and jumped onto the side of the building, crawling along the side like a gecko and hiding in the dark alleyways in-between the building she was on and the one next to it. At the same time, a soldier in an armored car that was parked in a secluded area had spotted Antylamon leaving the park. He then began to radio for help*
Soldier: General Stanford, come in! This is Unit 4A. Do you read me? Over.
General Stanford: *over the radio* This is Stanford. Come in.
Soldier: Sir, you know those giant monsters we were sent here to destroy? Well, I just sighted one leaving Central Park and heading into the city! Over.
General Stanford: *on the radio* Are you serious? Over.
Soldier: Yes, sir. What are your orders? Over.
General Stanford: *on the radio* Head back to base. We need to strategize a strike against the monster. Out.
Soldier: Roger that. Over and out!
*Meanwhile, Antylamon was jumping from building to building, hiding in the shadows to stay out of sight from the other humans as she continued her search for Joey through the city*
Antylamon: Why am I doing this? Why am I risking my life trying to find some human? I mean, I only met him a few hours ago, so why does it feel like...I've known him all my life? Could HE be the one I've been looking for all this time?
*Suddenly, just as Antylamon leapt onto another building and grabbed onto the side, she lost her grip during her train of thought, and fell hard onto the street below, destroying a two cars in the process*
Antylamon: Ugh... My back! *sits up, rubbing her back* That was really stupid of me... *notices all the people staring at her* Uh-oh...
*All the people in the area began to run away from Antylamon. People who were in their cars immediately got out of their cars, not bothering to look back at Antylamon, who hasn't even moved from where she stood*
*Back at the restaurant, Chris pulled his cell phone out and looked on the web browsers news section*
Chris: *eyes widen* Um, guys...
Robert: What is it, Chris?
Kevin: What's wrong?
Chris: It says here on my web browsers that there's been a monster sighting in the city near Central Park. The news only broke a couple of minutes ago.
BlackAgumon: Central Park?
Mike: Isn't Antylamon there?
Joey: Antylamon? Oh no!
Robert: We better get over there before the military gets to her first!
Kevin: Right behind ya.
Renamon: Let's go!
*Robert, Kevin, Mike, and their Digimon ran out of the café with Joey following behind*
Angelomon: Aren't we gonna help them, Chris?
Chris: Can't leave them alone without some backup. Let's go! *takes off his apron and runs out of the cafe with Angelomon*
*Meanwhile, Antylamon was standing in the middle of the street, as civilians continued to flee in terror. She tried not to move, as to avoid trying to cause any more damage, while trying to reason with them*
Antylamon: People, please, there's no need to panic! I'm not going to hurt anyone!! I'm sorry for the damage I've caused, it was an accident!
*Unbeknownst to Antylamon, several tanks, missile trucks, armed soldiers, and jeeps, cautiously approached from behind her. Inside one of the trucks was a fifty-five year old man with a gray mustache and was dressed in a military uniform and a helmet. This was General Gregory Stanford, leader of the New York regiment. Inside the truck were numerous surveillance monitors, which were targeting Antylamon*
General Stanford: First giant monster we encounter...and it's a rabbit.
Soldier 1: You sound disappointed, sir.
General Stanford: Well, I was hoping for something more of a challenge, but a monster's a monster...
Soldier 1: Your orders, sir?
General Stanford: Send out the troops to gun it down. If the rifles aren't strong enough for it, use the tanks.
Soldier 1: Yes, sir. Right away. *takes out a walkie-talkie and talks into it* Armed troops, advance slowly towards the monster and shoot on the general's command. Over.
*Dozens of armed soldiers slowly made their way towards Antylamon, who was still trying to get everyone to calm down. Her ear slightly twitched, as if she heard something. She turned around to see the soldiers getting into position, aiming their rifles at her. All she could do was stand there, wondering what would happen next*
Antylamon: *eyes widen* Uh-oh...
Soldier 1: Sir, the monster's seen us!
General Stanford: Fire at will! Don't give it any chance!
Soldier 1: *using his walkie-talkie* Sergeant, fire at will!
Sergeant: Open fire!!
*The soldiers fired their rifles at Antylamon, as she shielded herself from the attack. However, the bullets had no effect on her whatsoever. Even though they shot her point blank, the bullets weren't strong enough, as they were crushed upon impact*
Soldier 1: Sir, the bullets just bounced off it like they were jellybeans!
General Stanford: Well, this rabbit's more of a challenge than I thought... Ready the tanks and fire on my command!
Soldier 1: Yes, sir. *using his walkie-talkie* All tank units, prepare to fire on the general's command!
*The tanks made their way forward, stopping about a few feet away from Antylamon, then aiming at her. All Antylamon could do was stand there, in fear for what would happen next*
Antylamon: Oh, come on!
General Stanford: *grabs the walkie-talkie from the soldier* Open fire!!
*The military fired all of their weapons at Antylamon, but she jumped up onto the side of a building, dodging the oncoming attacks*
Antylamon: *to herself* Wow, that was close!
General Stanford: *using the walkie-talkie* Fire again!!
*The military fired again, but Antylamon dodged by running across the side of the building as several more tank shells exploded behind her, shattering glass, concrete, and steel into the air. Suddenly, a shell exploded close in front of her, causing her to fly off the side of the building*
Antylamon: AAAHHH!!! *crashes onto the pavement* Ugh!!
Sergeant: It's on the ground now, take it down!!
*The soldiers then fired their machine guns at Antylamon, but luckily, she grabbed one of the steel girders from the explosion and used it as a shield, protecting her from the oncoming bullets*
Antylamon: *to herself* Damn it, they just won't leave me alone! *to the military* I'm not here to harm any of you! I come in peace!
Soldier 1: *gasps* Oh my god... It can talk!!
General Stanford: Don't bother talking to it, it's probably trying to fool you! Get ready to fire again on my command!
*Just then, Joey, Robert, Chris, Mike, and their Digimon were seen running towards Antylamon*
Antylamon: Huh? *turns to see Joey running toward her* Joey!!
General Stanford: *raises an eyebrow* What the hell-- *using the walkie-talkie* HOLD YOUR FIRE!!! I REPEAT, HOLD YOUR FIRE!!!
Joey: Antylamon, what are you doing out here!?
Antylamon: I slipped up while trying to find you, then everyone ran away from me, and then these things came in to try and destroy me!
Chris: That's our military for you, they'll fire at anything that seems like a threat.
BlackAgumon: You can say that again!
General Stanford: Someone get those kids out of there!
Soldier 1: Yes, sir! *takes back his walkie-talkie* All units, fire at the giant rabbit, then send some ground troops in to get those kids out of the way! Over.
Soldier 2: *on the other line* Sir, negative, sir! There are four other creatures accompanying the kids! Over.
Soldier 1: *using his walkie-talkie* Wait, could you repeat that? Over.
Soldier 2: *on the other line* I repeat, there are four smaller monsters that are with those kids. And one of the kids seems to be talking to the large one.
Soldier 1: *turns to Stanford* Sir, he says there are four other monsters accompanying the kids.
General Stanford: I can hear him, damn it! I'm old, not deaf! *grabs the walkie-talkie* Soldier, get those kids out of there and incarcerate those monsters, then take down that damn rabbit! Over!
Soldier 2: *on the other line* Sir, yes, sir! Over and out!
*Just then, one of the soldiers ran up from behind Joey, grabbed his shoulders, and began to drag him away from the others*
Joey: *struggling in the soldier's grip* Hey!! Let me go!!
Soldier 3: Come on, kid! You gotta get the hell out of here!
Robert: Hey, leave my brother alone!! *jumps onto the soldier and begins to punch him*
Soldier 3: HEY!!! Cut it out! We're trying to help you!
Mike: *gets grabbed by another soldier* YO, LET GO OF ME, SCUMBAG!!!!
Soldier 4: You kids gotta get away from these monsters! They're dangerous!
Chris: *runs up to the soldier who grabbed Mike, takes his gun and points it at his face* Back off, NOW!
Kevin: *eyes widen* Whoa, Chris! Take it easy!
BlackAgumon: Yeah, don't you think that's a little...extreme?
Soldier 4: Son, take it easy... Just put the gun down...
Chris: First, you release my friends, then I'll put the gun down.
Soldier 4: Son, we're trying to escort you and your friends away from these monsters.
Chris: *cocks the gun* Release my friends, or I'll shoot you in the face!!
Soldier 4: You can't be serious. These monsters basically destroyed the city!
Chris: Mike, cover your ears!
Mike: *covers his ears* Oh god...
Chris: *presses the barrel against the soldier's forehead* I'll give you to the count of three... One. Two.
Soldier 4: Put down the gun--
Chris: Three. *moves the barrel close to the soldier's ear and fires*
Soldier 4: *lets go of Mike and covers his ears* AAAAHHHH!!! AAAAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!
Antylamon: *eyes widen* Good lords!!
Mike: *stands beside Chris* Dude, what the hell?!
Chris: *aims the gun at the soldier with Robert and Joey* Drop them, or I'll do the same to you!
General Stanford: *using his walkie-talkie* What the hell's going on out there? What happened? Over.
Soldier 2: *on the other line* Sir, one of the kids just shot one of our troops with his own gun! He's down on the ground, covering his ears and screaming! Over.
General Stanford: *using the walkie-talkie* What?!
Soldier 2: *on the other line* I repeat, one of the kids has shot one of our men! He's threatening to shoot more if we don't release the others!
General Stanford: Damn it all... *using the walkie-talkie* All units, stand down!
Soldier 3: Okay, okay! Take it easy! *lets go of Joey and Robert*
Robert: Wow, that was nuts, man... But thanks for helping.
Angelomon: You know, I could've fought them off for ya.
Chris: I didn't want you to get caught, buddy. Who knows what these guys would do to you?
Veemon: Dude, did you really shoot him?
Chris: Nah, I just shot next to his ear. The gunshot was too loud for him, apparently.
Kevin: Ooh! Dude, that sucks!
Soldier 2: GRAB THE GUN!!!
*The other soldiers tackled Chris, as they fought for the gun. Chris managed to get a good grip on it as the others tried to take it from him*
Robert: Renamon, do something!!
Renamon: On it! *disappears*
*As the soldiers try to get the gun away from Chris, Renamon appears from behind them, tapping on one of their shoulders*
Soldier 4: *turns to see Renamon* Huh?
Renamon: There's no need for violence. I assure you we mean no harm.
Soldier 4: ARG!!! *pulls out his gun and fires at Renamon*
Renamon: *dodges the bullet, grabs the soldier's arm and punches him in the face* HYAH!!!
Soldier 3: YAHH!!! *flies back and hits the side of a jeep* Ugh...
Renamon: I didn't want to do that, but there wasn't much of a choice...
Soldier 5: Forget the kid, get the monsters!!
*The soldiers charged after the other Digimon, but were stopped when Antylamon swatted them away with her giant hand*
Antylamon: Back off, shrimps!!
Joey: Wahoo!! Go Antylamon!!
Renamon: Thanks for help, old friend.
Antylamon: *smiles* My pleasure.
General Stanford: *sarcastically* This day just gets better and better... *using the walkie-talkie* All units, incarcerate the children and shoot the monsters down!
*Just then, the tanks, trucks and soldiers aimed their weapons at Antylamon and the other Digimon*
Sergeant: All units, open fire!!
*The tanks and machine guns fired at Antylamon, who gracefully dodged the bullets and shells with ease. She then saw Joey and picked him up in her hand*
Antylamon: Gotchya! *puts Joey on her shoulder* You'll be safe up here, now hang on!
Joey: *nods quickly* Gotchya!
Robert: Renamon, I think it's time for you to digivolve. *takes out his digivice*
Renamon: *nods* Right!
Mike: You too, Veemon! *takes out his digivice*
Veemon: You got it!
Renamon: *digivolves* Renamon digivolve to...Kyubimon!
Veemon: *digivolves* Veemon digivolve to...ExVeemon!
*As the digivolutions finished, the soldiers and General Stanford looked at them in awe, shocked as to how they were able to transform like that*
Soldier 2: What the hell!? Th-They got bigger!!
*Robert quickly hopped onto Kyubimon's back and Mike jumped onto ExVeemon's back*
Robert: TAKE OUT THEIR GUNS!!!
Kyubimon: FOX TAIL INFERNO!!!!
*The attacks were headed straight towards the tanks and a few military trucks, causing various soldiers to leave the vehicles immediately. As the last few made their escape, the attacks made impact with the vehicles, destroying them*
Robert: Remember, don't hurt them! We're only trying to protect Antylamon and Joey!
Mike: Yeah, but
you gotta admit, this is kinda fun!
Robert: *face palms* Ugh, just don't kill the soldiers!!
ExVeemon: You got it, boss man!!
*Suddenly, a soldier aimed his rifle at Antylamon and fired, but the bullet missed her and grazed Joey's aright arm, causing it to bleed*
Joey: AAAHHH!!! *clutches his bleeding arm* My arm!! *falls off Antylamon* AAAAHHHH!!!!
Antylamon: *tries to catch Joey, but fails* NO!!!
Robert: JOEY!!!! Kyubimon, catch him!!
Kyubimon: On it! *jumps up in the air and catches Joey on her back* Got you, Joey!
Joey: *clutches his arm, tightly* Oh God, my arm... I'm bleeding...
Robert: *hugs Joey* It's okay, Joey, you're going to be all right!
Antylamon: Joey... *narrows her brows and turns to the military* That does it!! BUNNY BLADES!!!! *her arms turn into axes and immediately begins slicing up the trucks, jeeps, and tank canons* Hyah!! *stops and stares menacingly at the soldiers* Grrr...
Soldier 6: *eyes widen* Mother of God...
Soldier 4: *eyes widen* Good lord...
Soldier 1: *eyes widen* I-It destroyed...all our guns...
General Stanford: *eyes widen* Jesus... *using the walkie-talkie* Fall back! All units, fall back and return to base!
Soldier 1: What about the kids?
General Stanford: Not worth it at this point! RETREAT!!!
*Soon, the soldiers retreated, along with their military vehicles and what was left of their tanks, disappearing into the city*
Kevin: Hey, they're retreating!
Chris: For now...
ExVeemon: Let's beat it, before they decide to come back!
Robert: We'll need to get Joey some medical attention!
Chris: And just what are you gonna tell your mom, huh? That a soldier shot him during a monster attack on the city?
Robert: *pause* Let's meet up at Central Park. I'll go get some medical supplies from the drug store for Joey. We'll meet up with you soon.
Chris: That's better.
*Later, back at Central Park, the group sat patiently, waiting for someone to break the ice. Antylamon looked over at Joey on her shoulder, concerned about his wound, which was patched with gauze wrap*
Mike: Great... Now everyone knows about Antylamon... This isn't much of a secret, is it?
Robert: *shakes his head* Nope, not really.
Chris: What's worse is that the military knows that we have Digimon and that they can Digivolve...
*Just then, the sound of a cell phone's ring tone could be heard. Chris reached into his pocket, pulled out his cell phone and answered it*
Chris: Hello? *pause* Yeah, it's me. *pause* What? Why?! *pause* But I was-- *pause* I had to help my friends out real quick-- *pause* ARG!!! *hangs up*
Kevin: Who was that?
Chris: My boss... He fired me because I ditched my job to help you guys out... *turns to Antylamon* THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT!!!!
Antylamon: I didn't mean to cause so much trouble. I am truly sorry for everything that's happened...
Kevin: Now, let's not play the blame game...
Joey: Antylamon, why were you looking for me anyway? Didn't you come here for Renamon?
Antylamon: I just felt like there was a strong connection between you and me, and I never realized it until moments ago, before the whole fiasco.
Joey: Really? *pause* You know...it's weird, because...I kinda felt the same way...
Robert: Wait, so does this mean that--
*Suddenly, a glowing object appeared from out of Antylamon's forehead and floated down towards Joey, who grabbed it. As the glow faded, the object was revealed to be an orange digivice*
Joey: *eyes widen* A-A digivice? For me? *looks up at Antylamon* And...you're my partner?
Renamon: It seems we have new members on our team. Congratulations, Joey and Anylamon.
Joey: WAHOO!! I'm a tamer!! YEAH!!! *hugs Antylamon's head*
Angelomon: YAY!!! A NEW FRIEND!!!!
Chris: *leaning against a tree* Yeah, this is all well and good, but now our Digimon are fugitives, we'll probably be asked questions by the military about what we were doing with them, and now I'm jobless...
Antylamon: I'm truly sorry, Chris, it's all my fault.
Chris: *sighs* I don't blame you... I blame that poxy CD.
Joey: Where are we gonna hide her?
Antylamon: I may as well stay here in the park. I am very well hidden when I want to be.
Robert: True, but someone might find you eventually...
Antylamon: You have seen me run, haven't you?
Antylamon: I'll be fine, Robert. Trust me.
Joey: Well, what do we do now?
Robert: Let's all go home, it's getting late.
Chris: Be careful, guys...
Antylamon: *takes Joey off her shoulder and sets him on the ground* There you go, Joey.
Joey: Be careful out there, Antylamon. And thanks.
Antylamon: You're welcome, Joey. See you tomorrow. *goes and hides in the forest*
*While everyone else left Central Park, Robert and Renamon were the only ones who continued to stay and talk*
Robert: Renamon... What were you and Antylamon talking about earlier this afternoon?
Renamon: I can't tell you that, Robert. It's between Antylamon and I.
Robert: But I'm your partner, I deserve to know!
Renamon: *pause* All right. But not now... I'll tell you when the time comes.
Robert: *sighs and nods* Okay... I just hope that'll be soon... Goodnight, Renamon. *walks off toward home*
Renamon: Stay safe, Robert... *vanishes into the night*
