The Time of the DayThe sun had long started sinking towards the horizon by the time Millenniummon’s form slumped to the ground and began crumbling. Ryo’s audible sigh of relief echoed through the wasteland and Paildramon mimicked it before crashing to his knees in the sand.
Part 4 of 7: Afternoon
The words were repeated in another voice: the more cautious half that made the Jogress, and then they separated, devolving back into their Fresh stages and struggling on the sea of sand.
Both boys smiled at the scene and Ryo, taller and less physically exhausted than the other, took a step forward. And so it was he wasn’t looking at his fallen enemy.
But his companion was. And thus it was only he who saw the disintegrating data take form and shape –
– and direction.
He cried out in alarm, throwing his full weight forward as he noticed one heading right for Ryo’s heart. He felt the other’s elbow in his chest as he crashed, and for a moment he was aware of them both pitching forward and thought wryly the sand would be intolerable, but the next moment his mind was overcome by pain and he became incapable of recognising – or even seeing – anything else.
A chapter that should have ended in happiness and victory instead led to days of cloudy confusion ahead, and the two weary digimon managed to drag their way to their humans as the screams and thrashing continued, and when they finally stopped and they (or Ryou more specifically) were able to move him, the sun had gone as well, leaving them at the mercy of the night and whatever mysteries it concealed.
Ryou hoisted Ken’s unconscious form over his shoulder, offered a hand to Chibimon and Leafmon (who both refused) and set off where the sun had set. They had come from the west after all, and none of them had any idea what lay beyond the temple to the east.
