The Time of the DayThe sunset in the digital world was unlike anything Ken had ever witnessed before, but above all else it was a reminder of his transgression.
Part 6 of 7: Sunset
‘Oh,’ he cried. ‘I was only supposed to be a minute…’ He looked at the little device, the one which had sucked him into the computer the moment he touched it, then at Wormmon, who had so quickly become a close friend.
‘That digivice is yours,’ Wormmon said, again repeating the words he had said when fending off the Gazimon that had attacked them. ‘Don’t forget that, and I’ll always be here, waiting for the next time you visit.’
‘Mine?’ Ken repeated. In the moment, it had been quickly accepted, but now that they stood at the gateway between their two worlds he wasn’t so sure. ‘Onii-san said it was his.’
Wormmon shook his head. ‘The digivice brought you to the digital world and not him.’
A smile spread.
‘And you’re my partner.’
‘And I’m your partner,’ Wormmon agreed, as night fell upon them and the sky turned black. ‘I’ll always be here for you, even if I’m not in your world.’
‘Can’t you come?’ Ken asked, hopefully.
‘No,’ the digimon said sadly. ‘Not yet anyway.’
‘My place is here,’ Wormmon explained gently. ‘You are human and must return to your own world, but I am a digimon.’
‘You could hide under my bed,’ the nine year old offered.
‘I can’t leave everything behind.’
‘Oh.’ Ken thought of everything he loved in his world: his parents, his brother…or maybe he could leave them for a few days. Maybe they would spend more time with him then.
He quickly shook his head. Those were cruel thoughts to think.
‘Is something wrong?’ Wormmon asked.
‘No.’ Ken shook his head. ‘It’s just that…I was having fun.’
‘So was I, but you’ll come back tomorrow.’
‘I’ll come back,’ Ken promised, before taking a deep breath and raising his digivice, fading into the multitude of lights.
