Aki’s act of surprise against the pickaxe caught Suzi’s attention. Her eyes darted around looking at the others. Her mouth made a small o, as she observed. There was something scary about all of this. There had been a backdrop of terror this entire time, but the fear was dripping away, as she saw what was happening.
This is not scary. It was the same inner voice that told her the city of Tokyo was a new adventure. This was a new adventure. It was different than other adventures she had experienced, but it was definitely an adventure, and it wasn’t scary. She wished to believe it never had been scary.
Her eyes focused on her screen. Kyaromon She wished for her Digimon to be right beside her. How would she come about this? Her mouth closed with a childish concentration, pressed into her right cheek. It was as if an invisible wall was holding her back. She was staring at her Digimon and then back at the other children. There was not a chance she would try to attack any of the viruses with her bare hands as did Aki.
Her mind went back-and-forth, to-and-fro about how to change the situation. Finally, she drew in a deep breath. Her small chest puffed a bit, “Kyaromon! Digivolve!” Her voice commanded, again. She knew what Kyaromon would look like next, and it excited her. What she did not know, was if this was how it would happen. The circumstances were different than with her virtual pet monster that had been gifted to her at her birthday.
