    Divina nodded and Suceiromon returned to the card with the statement that she would 'entertain' her new quests for a while. Divina grins, "Let's not keep them waiting, Chester."

    Karal looks around, "So this is the Digital World. Doesn't feel that different."

    JT says, "I dunno; It's more tingly here."

    Kirsto and his partners walked through the portal the moment it opened. None of them were foolish enough to stay behind in that mess. Tigromon looked around, "Well. The Jungle Archipelago. Our homeland. We know these islands like the back of our paws."

    ~~~~~

    Zecma's mental message hits a surprisingly strong digital mental firewall, something a normal human or even a hybrid would certainly not have. It must be something acquired from data gathered from the enemies he's been fighting. Zecma, however, is on the 'approved sender' list and he can sense his message is delivered.

    The reply from Faroth is rather unclear. There is a large transmit of highly encrypted digital data and encoded under the encrypted channel is an audio channel that states in Faroth's electronica voice that fades into a highly robotic voice "HGnnnTA...Area Unsafe... Containment b.b...breached.....GARRRRRRrrrrR...Davyd....Davyd safe?....Mi..missin..mission paramater...must.....rejoin....DAvyd....Protect........HSSZZZZNt.. Viral Load Exceeds Safe Parameters. Data Integrity at 5%. Physical Dataform at 10%. Personality Matrix in danger of collapse." He must have been heavily injured. The audio stream is also broadcast through the speakerbox Luke has on him so everyone else also hears the message near Luke.

    Zecma suddenly appeared in the Factory via teleport. "Davyd... these pictures your brother took at Faroth's house are... rather disturbing. You need to see this. What species can make a claw mark like this. I have an idea, but I wanted a second opinion." He handed the pictures over to Davyd whom allowed both Karal and J.T. to see them as well.

    Zecma then asked, "Where did Arturo and Vance go? No one should be out in the city right now. The MS troops are doing some crazy things."

    From out of the back room, Arturo and Triple I emerged all cleaned up followed by FInnpaw and Vance, although Vance looked as if he had been throwing up. Smelled like it too. Arturo said, We are safe, Zecma, but if MS is cracking down to get at Faroth, then you might want to get your Beta Team together for an extraction to our off-world command base. I have a retreat workshop in the Digital World on one of a chain of jungle islands just off of the main continent. We need to move our party over to the commander base until things cool off in Shinjuku. As for Faroth, since we do not know where he is and we cannot send him word of our plan to vacate temporarily to protect Davyd...."

    Zecma said, "Pshaw! I can contact the Beta Team either by the Card Launchers or mentally. I will have to open a magical portal to KIrsto's location since he is off playing his music. Chester and Divina just got to fight some military copter pilots with my blessing. And Luke is using Dragaruli and Sunwukonga at some location outside of the recent pulse blast. Had they been caught in that, they would have crashed and Luke would have been hurt badly." He lifted his own Card Launcher and activated the conference call feature on the communicator. Attention Beta Team, Abort going home I will be opening Rescue portals to your locations, if you have partners outside of the launchers, have them fly or escort you through the portal. We are about to head to the digital world. Shinjuku is not a safe place for Digital games right now. Kirsto, I know you are playing your music, but at the planned destination there will be a private place near a beautiful overlook where you can play your music. Please bring your partners; I can sense they are not in their cards."

    He paused and opened multiple portals at the Beta members locations. And then he opened a giant portal and moved the whole factory property over to Arturo's jungle Island where it arrived very close to Arturo's workshop retreat. Then Zecma moved the game shop over since it was Finnpaw's business. Lastly, he opened an arrival portal within an arena chamber inside the factory. He now shot a mental message toward where ever Faroth was in Shinjuku. This is Zecma, we just moved Davyd and friends over to the Digital World. I can give you a magical lift if you need an extraction. Don't throw your life away. You are the only one still out and about. Will you accept this free bail out?

    Dondramon flew through the portal when it appeared and they landed in the factory arena chamber.

    Dragarulimon flew in next and he deposited Luke and Sunwukongamon on the floor before landing and coming back over to check on them.

    Karal and JT waited until the limo arrived then both of them quickly put the device into a specially constructed magenetic container for storing potentionally dangerous digital and anti-digital artifacts that Karal had developed and took it over to the Factory. Once there, they transfered their mobile lab and the sealed container into the Factory.

    Karal grins, "Hey Davyd! Good to see you on your feet again!" He placed the container he was carrying on the table, "Wanna help me take a look at this? Where's Zecma?" He explains to Davyd how they came by it.

    ~~~~~

    Divina smirks, "Don't worry they won't hit the ground"

    Suceiromon shakes her head, "Idiot males...Time to take out the trash." She flicked her whip rapidly, cutting down each and every bullet with rapid motions before doing the same thing to their parachutes. She then held out her hand and used the same ability she gifted Divina with to teleport the two to her home realm into the waiting arms of thirteen of her servants.

    The last thing heard from those men were their screams before the portal closed.

    Divina grins, "Nice. I suppose that's them out of the way. Right, Chester?"

    ~~~~~

    Dragarulimon, flying harder, was just able to get out of range after a mortar shell whizzed by. Suddenly, a small spherical area of the city centered on where Luke saw the shell land was suddenly plunged into thick, inky blackness for a moment as the area was completely drained of metaphysical data and any digimon inside was hit with an intense data drain effect capable of inflicting base code damage or if they weren't powerful enough, nullified them completely. Apparently it didn't matter if some of their own troops were hit, Macrosoft was intent on paralyzing or stopping the rogue data thief. There was no sign of any digital creature left behind within the zone of effect, though the real world structures and people seemed to be unaffected.

    In the distance, Luke, Dragaruli and Sunwukonga could see teams bearing the logo of Macrosoft's Rapid Response teams. The classic black vans filled with data containment and nullifcation equipment, the latest generation of Hunter Killer Digital Creations from the Infiltration Teams, and one or two D.I.E. vans in the back; strangely the D.I.E. Security teams seemed to be keeping a WIDE berth away from most of the other Macrosoft teams.

    From Luke's pocket there came a electronic voice that was heavily synthesized, "My Mission... I won't ... fail...my mission...again...Mission..." The tone of the voice changes becoming even more robotic, "Mission Statement, Parameters, Protect Davyd Arden. Mission: Active. Hostiles..." It goes silent. When Luke examines his pocket, he finds a round black collar with a speakerbox on it that's been reprogrammed and is broadcasting the voice he heard. After a few minutes, there is another transmission, less robotic again but still in the same synthesized voice, "Hostiles...Elima...nated...HGNT...Viral load....increasing...Not safe...Returning to Mission..."

    He may be fighting a battle of attrition against himself and the Macrosoft goons, but he's still the best theif around. He planted that on Luke without him or his partners ever noticing.

    Luke said, "I'll try to keep it in sight, guys. You can track me though my Heartstone data chip." and he began to head off after whatever the strange digimon beast was.

    ~~~~~

    At the Factory, Davyd was on Zecma's land line phone (since the cellphones were having problems in the city) with his brother. "That is interesting news, bro. I will let the guys here at the factory know this immediately. I'll have Zecma teleport out to pick up the pictures you took. No, you stay at the farm house. There is no power in the city at all. I am glad the land line still works. I'll be home in the morning with good news. Bye." He heard his brother hang up and then he waited and he heard a secondary click before he hung up. "That have the phone lines outside the city tapped, guys. Anyway, my brother tells me that the power is only off in the city, the country grid is still operational. He took some pictures at Faroth's home and he thinks we should see these pictures. He cannot send them through the cellphone because the power grid for the cell towers are currently offline. Could you teleport out to the farmhouse and get these pictures, Zecma. I will stay here at the factory with Vance, Arturo, Finnpaw and the Alphas. Another warning, Zecma, they have the land lines tapped."

    Zecma said, "I'm on my way. You are safe inside the factory. The place is indestructible unless you are a Greek Titan." POOF! He was gone.

    ~~~~~

    Arturo and Finnpaw were looking at the kind of a mess Vance was coated in. "No, son, you did not break Triple I. Since the tail hole is used for data sharing, excess waste is exuded out through that lower part where the slit/sheath would be. And that is sadly what you have been trying to clean up. In other words, son, you got his poo all over yourself. Just like old times. You are such the adventurer. We will need Cleansing Oil to get this stuff off of you. and your clothes will have to be washed separately. We are not going to tell your mom how you messed up your Sunday school clothes, are we?"

    Vance felt a little sick since the waste was the last thing on his mind and to have his dad tell him what he had been trying to clean up. And worse, when he had subconsciously tried to wipe the sweat off of his head and mouth, he got this nasty stuff in his mouth. "I need to throw up." He was then helped into the bathroom by Finnpaw while Arturo worked on cleaning the Security Hound the rest of the way up so he was decent.

    Vance was on his knees in front of a commode where he vomited a volume of nasty stuff out of his mouth and nose. "HRRURGH!"

    Finnpaw said, "Life lessons learned are not bad for the student learning things, Vance. I mean, you really like Triple I. If he was a real Digimon, I think he would have appreciated your effort to help him."

    ~~~~~

    The helicopter pilots were like, "What the Hell is that thing?!" "I don't know! Shoot it!' And that's when they opened fire on Suceiromon.

    Dondramon coughed up a ball of clay mud and spit it at the base of the copter blades which caused the helicopter to suddenly stall and begin to fall out of the sky.

    Chester said, "Looks like they are attempting to bail out of the copter, guys. And we're still over the city. What a bunch of stupid putzes!"

    ~~~~~

    Luke reached a dark alley way where he thought the creature had last went and he stopped. "And me without my flashlight. Well I have one, but I am not whipping it out." And then Luke felts a fuzzy paw hand grip his shoulder from behind as it turned him around.

    Standing there was some sort of humanoid Great Dane type of Digimon wearing armor over his body. "Last reports where that you were heading home, Luke. Are you going to go home on your own or do I have to arrest you and take you back to the kennel?"

    Luke said, "I was tracking Faroth to see about administering the cure to him. but if you want to arrest me after I already told my parents that I was fine, then its your tail in the grinder when they come to check on me later."

    And without warning a large surfboard struck the Great Dane in the back of the head and this was followed by a boat load of peeled bananas being rapidly fired up the Great Dane's anal tail hole. Dragarulimon and Sunwukongamon smiled at Luke. "We got your back, partner. Let's get out of here!" Dragaruli leaped up into the air and he grabbed Luke's shoulders with his foot claw grips as the monkey digimon leaped up and hung on to Dragaruli as the winged lizard Digimon partner took flight with Luke in tow. "Your skills at fibbing needs some work, partner. Good thing you remembered that you were wearing the Card Launcher. But really, Sunwukonga, did you have to waste so many bananas up his butt."

    The monkey grinned. "Those were spoiled so it was no waste at all."

    Divina smirks as she activated the card, "No need to tell me even once. Let's go, SUCEIROMON!"

    Suceiromon appeared in the air and spread her demonic wings as she pulled out her whip, "Time to charm and punish." She floated up on an updraft in front of the helicopter as a pink aura expanded around her. She posed in a highly suggestive and seductive way, "Boys, boys, boys... Such handsome men of the military flying around in the dark..."

    ~~~~~

    Karal examined the device, "This is ... definitely what they said. It has strong anti-digital properties but if I'm reading this right... It's set to disable programs and inject new instructions. Potentially a cure, but I think it's more likely a complete reprogramming job if I know the military OR Macrosoft... But I'd need my equipment to be sure."

    JT pulls out his cellphone and speaks into it, "Hi! Hey, James. We need the secure limo with the mobile lab. Corner of Broadsin and Delaware. Yeah. Thanks." He hangs up the phone, "James is on the way."

    Karal nods to his brother, "Good thinking. We can put this is sealed suspension and let Zecma and Finnpaw help us decrypt it's programming. The mobile lab has self-contained power and a direct link to the secure, private networks. I know you gotta get home Luke but do you want to go with us to the Factory or let us drop you off at home?"

    JT suddenly shushes Karal and Luke and points, "Shh! Guys...look." He points to the shadow of a bipedal looking digimon peaking around the corner of a warehouse before it darted forward in the direction it was looking and away from the three on all fours. He looks at Karal and Luke, "Should...should we investigate?"

    Karal frowns, "I don't know who or what that was. Once the limo's here we may wanna get outta here. A creature cornered is dangerous..."

    ~~~~~

    Outside the City, Kirsto sat on his raised rock platform, playing a haunting Celtic melody. Unlike some of the others, he had kept his Bracer on the entire time and had his three new friends standing near him guarding him once the craziness started happening in the City. He was busy showing them a private concert and had no idea what was happening back inside Shinjuku.

    Chester lifted his Card Launcher and it still had its own soft light. But then you would expect Zecma and FInnpaw to cheat. "Come in Zecma, Shinjuku just experienced a mass power outage. And an extra warning. The goons seem to be looking for Davyd. they had a message using the street lights to tell the military about their plan. Divina and I saw it before the power outage occurred. I hope the Heartstone backup generators kicked on. Are things okay over there?"

    Zecma replied through the Card Launcher Comm, "The factory uses an alternate power source. We are not even linked to the city power grid. I did notice the street lights out one window wink off. Whatever you two are about to do, have fun doing it. Zec out."

    Chester grinned at Divina. "He didn't say 'no' to a night time card battle, so summon your partner Suceiromon and we will get this party started."

    ~~~~~

    Luke then noted that their Card Launchers had appeared on their arms without their having to summon them. Luke activated his. "Luke here. What's the word, Zecma?"

    Zecma remarked, "You boys might be about to get into a battle on the street. Chester just told me about the power outage and a weird message about MS and the military trying to find Davyd. We have Davyd here at the factory. Vance is here too. I think Kirsto is out at his solitude locale outside of town, so he should be safe there. No one ever goes out there. They think a cemetery ghost wanders those woods. Zecma out."

    Luke grinned. "We knew Kirsto's music could raise spirits from their slumber. If Macrosoft or the military go out there, I hope they have enough toilet paper. We may be about to get a workout, Karal. Although it doesn't feel like we are being watched. But then again, I did inform my parents where I was. They should have no reason to bother with us."

    And then, three large shadow like beasts crossed the street directly in front of the boys. They were dark in coloration although there is a blue and black hint of a glow around their eyes while one has a green and black glow around his eyes. The one with green stopped and looked at the boys as he said in an almost electronic voice. "Subjects identified as Karal and brother J.T. Heartstone. They are safe for passage. Third individual is Luke Masaki. He has top security passage, ignore those with Luke and continue on search parameter."

    Luke then said, "Wait a moment. You know us; what or who are you looking for? If I have this top security clearance, then you should tell me."

    The beast said, "Passage and Clearance are two separate things, Luke Masaki. However, if you see the data thief, which I doubt you would recognize at current, be warned that he is out of control. He would just as likely attack you as he would anyone else. He has been shooting himself up with Data drugs that give him digital access to city wide emergency services. He is high on the latest version which he stole and was not ready for the side effects that are now affecting his mind."

    Luke asked, "Can he be cured or are you hunting to kill him?"

    The beast replied, "He may not permit us to get near him to apply the cure, but as I said, If you see him and mind you that he currently does not look like your familiar friend... Zap him with an anti-digital pulse. That should paralyze him. After that, make sure he gets locked up in a location you trust. Do not let him claw you or you might get converted into joining his condition. As we said, his current mentality is in question." he then noticed that Luke had been trying to get closer to him. "What are you doing, Luke Masaki?"

    Luke said, "Hand me the cure and I will try to apply it to Faroth. He is the only data thief in Shinjuku so that has to be who you are referring to. I cannot believe he would resort to drugs. He was always against stuff like that when we were younger. It makes me wonder if someone didn't force this shit upon him."

    The beast reached into what seemed like a pocket in his fur on the back side as he handed over what seemed like a new-fangled Tazer device. "This contains the cure. If he permits you to apply it to him, then his mind should clear and he will calm down. Otherwise, he will accuse you of being with the enemy. As I said, He is dangerous right now." And then the beasts departed down the center of another dark street.

    Luke showed Karal the new device. "What do you make of this, Karal?"

    ~~~~~

    At the factory, Finnpaw let himself in through the security scanner entrance. "It is damned crazy out there, Zecma. There are weird Digital Beasts roaming all over the place in groups or two, three, five and sometimes, ten at a time. And the military copters are flying over the city. They are acting like someone escaped from prison. I encountered one of these beasts point blank and it used my real name and said that I had passage and that I was to be ignored despite my being a Houndramon at the moment."

    Zecma said, "I am glad you are here, Arturo's code is complicated. Yes, I know; I said it was complicated. Every time I think I am close to reversing the programming code, some sort of security that is not part of Arturo's original blueprints deflects my attempt."

    Finnpaw said, "I have a rather stupid idea, Zecma. Arturo please get on your hands and knees and lower your head and spread your butt cheeks apart. No we are not going to fuck you, but since the program is stopping all removal attempts, if we trick it into thinking that it is about to receive another update, it should allow you to do what you need to do, Zecma." He then retrieved a non-powered Data Rod and began to insert it up into Arturo's anus.

    Zecma was surprised that Finnpaw's idea was actually working.The program was now allowing Zecma permission to remove the programming block from Arturo's body. "This next part is going to hurt, Arturo, and I apologize. 3. 2. 1..." Arturo's entire body lit up brightly but as the brightness subsided, instead of resuming his human looks, he now looked as feral canine as Finnpaw did except this was obviously no Houndramon. "Arturo! Speak to us! Are you okay!"

    Finnpaw removed the data rod from Arturo's backside as Arturo the Stealthmon Hound Looked over his shoulder at Zecma.

    "I was willing to attempt any sort of cure, Zecma. Looks like they had a fail-safe in place to prevent reversion once converted. However, it might be possible for me to implement my own coding knowledge to make this work for me after all. Give me a moment. I sure hope no one else is infected with this devious shit." And he began to self program in his own coding knowledge. "Now for the proof of concept, guys. I added the Screener device code into my end species result and now..." he slowly digivolved from feral to humanoid mode as he stood up on his Plantigrade feet. And then he blinked his eyes hard as his human looks returned. "Make no mistake, boys, I am still a Stealthmon Hound despite how I look at the moment. That means that I can shift to hound mode when I need to. But when dealing with humans, this should be fine." He then began picking up his clothes and shoes. "Now if I can figure out how to get the clothes to make the change with me, I will be able to fool Macrosoft. They really want Davyd Arden on their security team at D.I.E."

    Zecma then asked, "I can dedicate your clothes to you in exchange for you telling me what they are doing at D.I.E."

    Arturo said, "When I first heard of MS D.I.E., I thought that it was a new gaming engine. But the truth is far more sinister than that. They are bio-engineering their own obedient Digimon warriors. Sad thing is... they are having problems making the Obedience part work. Their creations act like their parent species in rut and heat at the same time. Instead of obeying orders, they would rather mount and mate with their assigned partner. Faroth had been out there once and he was the one who accidentally mentioned that his friend Davyd could solve the obedience riddle. That is why they are madly after Davyd at the moment. They want the obedience program to work so they can have trustworthy warrior partners."

    Zecma finished dedicating Arturo's clothes to his body. "All done."

    Across the room, Davyd's voice was heard to say, "So that's why they want me. It kind of figures that Faroth would mention me by accident. I am not up to understanding obedience programming, Mr. Slystalker. I am barely at the stage where I can create my own Operating System and anti-virus programs. It does not operated on anything MS related and that is why MS was pissed when they couldn't hack my laptop over the internet." And then Davyd walked into view albeit still naked under his own power. "I have to hand to the Alphas, they delivered on their promise to repair my body. I think my mobility would surprise everybody in Shinjuku since it was last said that I would never walk again."

    Kanisunfernomon walked over and hugged Davyd closely. "As promised back at the Beta meeting, Davyd... I will gift you with the Kisume Strategy ability. This ability can help you in all planning that requires thinking way outside the box. I will also gift you with the Safety Transport ability. Any time you and your friends need a quick retrieval, you can activate this and you will transport to my personal quarters in Acheron. I will inform my pack that you and your friends are to be trusted and left unmolested. This means you will be allowed to go anywhere in my pack grounds safely. And now, I should return to the card which I placed back into your card launcher. My card is a short cut between the card space and my Alpha's quarters back home. From now on, my Pack is your army, Davyd." And he turned and disappeared into Davyd's Card Launcher.

    Davyd then picked up his gear and started putting it all back on. "My family are going to be thrilled when they see me on my feet."

    ~~~~~

    Vance thought that he broke Triple I since the leak was still pumping out the black stuff. And it was greasy, oily and sticky somewhat. Most of it was all over Vance's hands, torso and lap. "I am so sorry, Triple I. I cannot stop this leak from pouring out of you. I made a big mess. Dad will punish me for sure."

    Triple I sent a data log to 'Daddy' before he said, "You tried to patch it up, Vance. Arturo will not punish you. He is coming in here right now. But you did make yourself a mess while trying to help me."

    Vance grinned. "Wouldn't be the first time I've been covered in machine oil. The first time was Karal's fault. But he got just as black as I did. But his mom spanked him for getting me messy."

    Divina says, "No, I don't know them." She grins, "Oh CHESTER, you know how to make my evening. A ride home AND artful violence and mayhem! You're becoming my favorite male."

    Down below, suddenly every city streetlight went out and the houses around them started darkening as well as if a power outage was leaking out from the streets.

    ~~~~~

    Karal smirks, "Yeah. She said it was dangerous. BAH! It wasn't dangerous. It was fun and she knew it." He grins broadly, "But I still have an assembled version of a more...sexual nature... in my own lil workshop that she doesn't know about. AND since you enjoyed it so much.... perhaps you'd like to test drive it? I replaced the metal shaft with a textured multiflex shapeshifting siliconium one... What the?"

    JT looks around, "All the lights are going out...Even some of the houses!"

    Karal blinked and says, "Someone's hacked the City Grid?"

    ~~~~~

    The phone quickly spits out a response to Zecma, Message Undeliverable - Out Of Service : Error Code 404

    ~~~~~

    By this point, Faroth has shed most of his human clothes. Either by use of digital abilities that have caused them to degrade or as a result of attack is unclear. Faroth's appearance now strongly resembles that of a bipedal, digitigrade canine, somewhere between a wolf and jackal, silver and black with a shimmering nature to his thick, spikey fur coat that gives it the properties of blending in with whatever he is near. He still possesses the shocks of headfur in silver sticking out between his ears and over his eyes slightly that easily identify him however. His eyes are a flat black with red pupils that keep attempting to take over the rest of his eyes. It appears to be a constant struggle and one made worse whenever he uses one of his special abilities.

    Faroth presses himself up against a building, stilling his breathing and activating his visual and scent camouflage. This causes him to wince and dig his claws into the wall slightly but he forces himself to remain still as a pair of Macrosoft Hunter Killers pass by. He waits until they are just passed him before lunging from the shadows and dragging the two units back into the shadows where he rends them to bits and steals their data. His eyes glow red brightly again for a moment before he growls softly, shaking his head. Various files of text scrolling down the insides of his vision. Command Channels, Data Streams, Macrosoft Control Codes. He growls to himself, "Haven't...found him....Good. They won't. Kill the ... GAHNNNNNT...No." He pants, gripping the wall again, "Pro..Protect.... D...Davy...Orders? No.....Self...Self ORders....Protect....Davyd. My mission orders.....are to protect...Davyd."

    Chester said, "Fly higher, Dondramon. Maybe we aren't seeing all of the lights." And after he gained some height... they nearly avoided a military stealth helicopter that was up in the sky also looking at the lights. "Divina... do you know them guys or do we initiate a card battle up here?"

    From the higher height, the message seemed to say, I cannot find Davyd Arden. Initiating full scale scan of Shinjuku to locate him.

    No one ever looks for Kirsto.

    ~~~~~

    Luke's cellphone then played taps unexpectedly. "He pulled it out and looked at the caller ID. "Oh shit. Its my parents." He activated the phone. "Mom, Dad. Our Beta meeting lasted a bit longer than usual. I was escorting J.T. home while trying to get the latest gossip out of Heartstone central. Karal mentioned wanting to build a robot tracker. He hasn't worked on ity yet. No, that's all I have to report. I am about home as soon as I make sure J.T. walks in the Heartstone door. Karal? You know how he is. He doesn't need protection. Divina walked home with Chester. We haven't seen them since we parted company. Finnpaw's new game? It is a partner card game, you know... like Future Card BuddyFight. it needs some work. Faroth tripped up the combat system by accident and now that have to iron out what went wrong. No, I'm fine. Bye." and he hung up.

    He then looked at Karal. "I always tell them about something you mention that in my opinion, you haven't built yet when actually you have. They asked me if I was injured at the meeting. If it meant getting mounted by Finnpaw, then I might get injured or that time you told me not to go near what looked like a cow milking device that had my pants off and a metal shaft slid up my ass. Did your mom really make you dismantle that fun machine?"

    ~~~~~

    Zecma pulled out his text device and he tapped in a message: Faroth. We moved Davyd's operation to my factory since someone was spying on Davyd's 7 PM meeting at his house and we know it wasn't you. Arturo Slystalker (Vance's father) was the contact who spoke to Davyd but not in regards to Macrosoft's offer. He asked for Davyd's help to undo a programming error that is changing him into some sort of Android canine. If this has happened to you, please let us help you before you lose whatever mentality you have left. Zecma. He then clicked send hoping that Faroth would get the message.

    The operation was continuing.


    Vance was using a polishing cloth to wipe clean some sort of grease that was oozing out of Triple I's nether region. "Don't worry, I about have this cleaned up."

    Triple I then said, "Your friend Faroth is nearby."

    Vance smiled. "That doesn't surprise me; he will go anywhere to protect Davyd. I guess he thinks Davyd's initial accident is his fault. I don't know how though." after a pause and attempted polishing motions. "I guess my dad will have to fix this leak, Triple I. every time I think I about have it cleaned up, more comes out. It actually smells like penile cum. I sucked Karal's cock once and that's why I know how it tastes and what it smells like. If you had a cock to suck, I could show you."

    Triple I then said, "My data rod would make you forget who you were and then you might change into something like me."

    Divina snorts, "That guy is not that discerning with who he works for. If they have money, you can buy him from what I know. Still, I don't know if he worked directly under the military or under Macrosoft at the time but since they were working together, it probably doesn't matter."

    She looked down at the morse code, "Hrm, something about looking for something? Can you make it out, Chester?"

    ~~~~~

    Karal shrugs, "I don't know. If he's actually working, he could be anywhere."

    JT says, "Based on the sound, it was his typical work phone. Based on his quick exit, and trajectory of exit, he was heading back toward the street we do not name. But he could have changed directions once out of sight."

    Karal grins, "Well we COULD use our server at home to track spikes in cellular data plans, correlated back to time of his leaving... Aggregate some data for tracking purposes."

    JT rolls his eyes, "You just want to try out your tracer programs."

    Karal says, "Of course I do! The Virtual Intelligence Tracker and Scouting Algorithm is the best thing I've made since.... well the last thing I made! He can process 10 petabytes of data in under an hour."

    ~~~~~

    Zecma's magical sensors picked up a presence spying on the scene but before they or the alphas or Zecma could lock onto the disturbance it was gone without a trace or track. Even Zecma's magic couldn't pick up a trace other than a faint impression of digital energy and code that was distinctly Macrosoft and Viral. Apparently the security scared the potential invader off.

    Chester said, "The only data thief we know is Faroth. He's working with the Military now? Who knew?"

    Dondramon then said, "It is a good thing you asked me to fly you guys; something weird is up with all the street lights on the route you and Divina were traveling certain ones are totally out and from the air, the lights spell out some sort of Morse code. But I don't know Morse code. So you humans will have to discern what it says."

    ~~~~~

    Luke then said, "Where do you think the pole cat is tonight? He said he has to work after getting that weird phone call. I am tempted to ask Zecma to trace the cellphone call using magic. Since Faroth is supposed to be our friend, he could be in something deep and is too proud to ask for help the normal way."

    ~~~~~

    While Zecma was tackling the Arturo programming puzzle, which he looked to be pleased to do. (There's never a Karal around when you need one.), Kanisunfernomon appeared in the chamber along with several tall medically suited up humanoid Hellhound Alphas as they prepared an operation table for Davyd. Then Davyd was lifted out of his wheelchair, his clothing removed and he was placed naked on the operating table. "How's your old man doing these days, Firefang?"

    Firefang Yuskay grinned. "He is glad he got out of the legal business. The Groomer services see a lot more profit from the desperate public. Our version of the Form Insurance we introduced to the Underworld has brought in the most profit. So this is the boy who comes from the former demon hunters line. Boy... his internals are a real mess. Its almost as if the human doctors wanted to make sure he never recovered from his ordeal. But we can fix this."

    From Davyd's Card Launcher, Recruitomon said, "Macrosoft wanted to teach him a lesson for making sure they lost a research lab when they got a court order to steal his newest laptop OS. They were pissed that they couldn't upload viruses into his newest computer system. So he blew them up in a digital time bomb. But then they got revenge on him by making sure a computer he was repairing exploded and nearly killed him."

    Firefang said, "Saberclaw? Is that you? I haven't heard your voice since the old days before the stupid law ruined your original pack. Does your new partner know that you..."

    Saberfang growled, "Shut up! I will tell him after you repair his mobility!" Meaning, he had been a former Alpha for his pack; exactly the type that Davyd had been aiming for.


    Vance was distracted in a side chamber where he was playing with Arturo's fully functional Home Security Canine. "I really love playing with you, Triple I. You are like a pet that I never got to have. Do you ever get... you know... male canine urges?"

    Triple I replied, "I have none of those programmed into me, Vance. If I had them, you would have my data rod up your butt. Do you really want to be like your father?"

    Vance shook his head. "I guess not, but I really like your design."

    Divina accepts the assistance up to Dondramon's back with her usual smirking aplomb but once they are flying she hrms and then says quietly, "If you tell anyone I said this, I WILL cut off your balls and feed them to you... Macrosoft has been pushing the military to join them on several projects. Macrosoft's funds aren't unlimited and even they can't get access to some of the things they want without working with others. I happen to know for a fact that the military and Macrosoft used to be black mailing a local hacker and data thief to retrieve things for them. About a year ago, the blackmailing stopped. I over heard one of the male military officers telling another female officer that it was odd how Macrosoft's Data Infiltration Team didn't need their assistance anymore. A month ago, someone broke into the top secret computers housing the Mil-Net central servers, downloaded all of the data on the military projects involving Macrosoft and erased the hard copies." She flicks her hair out of her eyes, "I never really gave it much thought. I care for the military about like I care for most men... But in light of current situations, I find it interesting. I'm very curious what Macrosoft's Data Infiltration Team is up to... From what I heard the Infiltration Team is at odds with the Security Team. The Security Team's trying to actively recruit new bodies to catch up with whatever the Infiltration Team's up to. The Security Team is far more...public...than whatever goes on in the Infiltration Team."

    ~~~~~

    Karal nods darkly, gripping one fist, "And Faroth's involved in it. I didn't know Faroth was the one who contacted Mom. Sounds to me like he was trying to make up for something he caused! And if that's true, I owe him a punch in the face if not more."

    JT says, "Don't get ahead of yourself, Bro, you don't know he's involved in anything. Remember, Davyd's story is his side of things. Human memory isn't perfect and often we don't remember things completely objectively. There could be missing details."

    Karal growls, "I don't care. Faroth should have been upfront and honest with Davyd from the start. Pride cometh before the fall you know."

    JT mutters, "There's the kettle calling the pot black." He noticed how Faroth jumped to Davyd's defense tonight and more than once in the past to encourage him. JT has a feeling there is more there than meets the eye when it comes those two.

    Chester smirked. "You know all of us pretty well, Divina. As for a 'Game', I am thinking it is more than that. If it was just a game, one partner would have been enough. Both Zecma and Finnpaw kept stressing that our partners would need Support Partners. The only reason I can foresee for needing three partners would be if there was trouble in the world or in the Digital World and we were chosen to be the heroes to help them save the day. We are necessary to help the partners to become stronger. Without our help, they would have to do it alone and then they might get defeated. Although I am worried about Davyd. There is something majorly strange going down with Macrosoft, Davyd and Faroth. It was just too suspicious like Karal's look suggested for Faroth to leave in the middle of the Beta Meeting without claiming a single partner. I mean, When Davyd was about to leave after getting verbally slammed by Kanisunfernomon, Faroth was right there to tell him not to give up and to not quit. Yet, Faroth cannot seem to practice his own advice. Davyd said that Faroth often lied to him especially as of lately. I'm not sure what to believe, but what I do know is that we probably shouldn't be walking along a dark street without our partners at the ready."

    Chester raised his arm and he mentally caused his card launcher to appear on his arm. "Dondramon, Would you mind coming out here and allowing Divina and I to ride you for awhile."

    Are you guys being watched?

    Chester replied, "It feels like we are."

    A digiportation effect then occurred as Dondramon appeared with a dry saddle blanket on his back. "Get on you two. I will open my wings and fly us home."

    Chester helped Divina get aboard and then Chester got on before Dondramon opened his wings and he took flight over Shinjuku.

    ~~~~~

    Luke said, "If they are military friendly, then my parents would likely go for it. But their bosses have a dumb deal with Macrosoft. And we just heard what they are up to. They tried to kill Davyd or at least retaliate for what he did to them. But they started it by spying on his programming skills. And all of a sudden they want to hire him? Get real."

    ~~~~~

    At the Slystalker home, Vance and Davyd have dinner at the dining table with Vance's parents: Sara and Arturo.

    "I was surprised that you wanted to have dinner with my family, Davyd. I knew you and Vance were friends. But we really should not discuss business at the dinner table."

    Davyd then said, "We need to talk about it sometime before 9 PM, Mr. Slystalker. I have another appointment then and I really cannot miss it."

    When dinner ended, Arturo said, "Son, take Davyd into my office den in the main hallway, I will join you shortly."


    Inside the den which was nicely furnished, Davyd saw a new laptop which was still in its packaging. "Well, Vance, if that's not the bribe, I will suck your cock."

    Vance giggled. "I am sure its not a bribe, Davyd, but if it is then you won't get any Vance cream dessert."

    Then Arturo carried a heavy looking slender crate into the office and he closed the door before he opened the crate to reveal the Robo-Canine unit that Vance had seen once before. Arturo then sat down at his desk chair as he swiveled around and said, "Davyd. I was asked to give you an offer from the company, but I personally need your help. I had an accident at MS D.I.E. and I cannot undo it. This Security Canine unit is actually my own personal creation. I allowed Macrosoft to look over the plans one day and not more than a few days later, they had mass produced the units except, their versions were malfunctioning. and I know why. I didn't know have written on the blueprints the coding for total obedience. Their versions often did whatever they wanted to do. When they begged me to go in and fix it, at first I refused saying that had stolen my patented Security robot. I told them that if they had followed the blueprints exactly, then the robots would not be defying their programmed orders. But I lied. I went back in after hours and I attempted to shut down their processing system for mass producing my creation and the device caught me and it did this to me."

    Arturo brought his left wrist in front of himself and he touched a button on his wrist watch which revealed what looked like a humanoid version of the robo-canine. "Help me to undo this, Davyd and I will give you this new blank laptop just for your efforts. If Bates learns how to perfect the obedience code, he could control all of them. But its a complicated code. I was the guy responsible for programming the city's emergency services grid. Yes, that is my coding running the emergency network. I am the only one who can fix it."

    Davyd and Vance were shocked, but seeing his dad as a sexy dog man was making Vance horny. Davyd remained focused. "Okay Arturo, I will need to see the blueprints of the project."

    Arturo brought up his briefcase and he opened it and removed a folder as he handed it over to Davyd. "Please. If they find out their device did this to me, I might disappear and then Vance might come looking for me. He is quite the adventurer."

    Davyd opened the folder and poured over the complex blueprints. "Oh my. The last time I saw something this complex was when Karal blatantly made me look over the plans for Trinity. How did the device catch you, Arturo?"

    Arturo replied, "It pulled my pants down and then it inserted a data rod up my anus and after that, I felt a paralyzing jolt and then I heard programming being forced through my body until I had the appearance you see now. However, the species conversion was only partial because they did not have my special obedience code to make it complete. Had that occurred, I would be missing right now. And if you have any friends whom have been acting funny, they might have also received this treatment. So in helping me, you could help them."

    Vance then figured it out just as the look was crossing Davyd's face. "Faroth Planeswalker has been acting funny and smelling like a dog.. So its got to be him, Davyd."

    Davyd sighed. "And his warning me was probably his way of asking for help. How did I miss that?"

    Vance said, "If Davyd cannot help you, then there might be a way we can make you unfindable by Mister Bates, dad. Davyd, do you think a digitized human could be stored into a Card Launcher?"

    Davyd replied, "The way your father is right now, I would say yes. but lets not do that until we are sure there is no other way."

    Vance then asked, "Remember when you purged the MS OS off of your laptop that one time, Davyd? Could we reverse-engineer an Anti-MS purge download into dad and try to return him to normal?"

    Davyd said, "Its dangerous. But I think the one chance we have to restore your father is to take him and his project to Zecma's factory. He told us to go there tomorrow, but we need to get Arturo there tonight and let Zecma work on this puzzle. I have the 9 PM appointment."

    Vance opened his communicator in the Card Launcher and placed the call to Zecma. "Zecma we need you to transport Davyd, myself and my father to your factory right now. When we arrive, Davyd will quickly explain the emergency and then Davyd needs to prepare for Kanisunfernomon's arrival. I know it is after eight PM right now so we don't have much time."

    Zecma replied, "One teleport to my factory coming right up." Arturo had just packed up the project dog and picked up the crate when the teleport occurred to take the group to the factory. If anyone was watching their house they wouldn't be seeing anyone leave tonight.

    Davyd then explained the emergency to Zecma and showed him the blueprints and what bate's version had done to a human. "Arturo suspects that they might have done this to Faroth, Zecma. I'll be over here waiting for he Alpha."

    Vance was checking out the security dog close up once again. As he petted the head, the robo-canine opened his eyes. "Since daddy is here, you have permission to pet me, Vance."

    When Davyd's brother goes to visit Faroth's apartment, he finds the floor around the door with deep claw marks in them and the door itself is unlocked. Upon entering he finds Faroth and his laptop missing. There are spots of blood on the floor from where he was darted. There are also some further claw marks on the door's inside. But no sign of the data thief or where he went.

    ~~~~~

    Kirsto watched everyone leave and sighed a bit. Then he smiled and headed out to the bike rack and started down to the pasture overlooking one of the island's forest to practice his music.

    Divina looks over at Chester, "So what do you make of this 'Game', Chester? And don't give me the routine stupidity. I know you're smarter than you look. One of the short list of reasons why you're tolerable to talk to."

    JT was busy most of the walk playing with his bracer while Karal was grinning, "So Luke, what did you think of the new line of Laptops? Custom Heartstone OS and all the features? Gonna promote them to your folks?"

    JT rolls his eyes, muttering, "Give it a rest, bro"

    Davyd said, "Faroth used to be put offish about his concerns about me back before I found my expertise in security programs. I got tired of a certain anti-virus program not catching viruses when it should then then other times it would say I had a virus right after a security update. So one evening Faroth watched me reverse engineer the coding on the Anti-virus program and he witness my beef up the security on it. The next time there came a security update, the all new altered Anti-virus alerted me that a Trojan called Manufacturers Security update was trying to change the programming back to its per-altered parameters. and I pulled the plug on the I-Net connection. I then programmed an outgoing connection that would not allow downloads unless I personally authorized them with a pass code. One day, I was approached by two men in business suits and they asked me if I knew anyone who was doing any piracy programming on copyrighted data material. When I asked what copyrighted material was being altered, they started naming off every program on my laptop. At that point, I said, Faroth Planeswalker is the local data thief. Why don't you go ask him about this? And they asked me where he lived. And I told them after they left, I went and backed up my important data and I reformatted my laptop entirely and then I programmed in a homemade Operating System and the necessities needed to run the homemade programs that duplicated the things I had been using before. Then I reloaded my saved backup data. I programmed in a homemade Anti-virus program and then I created an all new firewall. And then I created an all new Instant messaging program which I named Triple I. I then shared the new IM program with all of you guys while keeping it secret what I had done to my laptop. I never even told Faroth what I had done. One day the black suits returned with a court order to examine the documents on my laptop. I sent a backup of my current work to my private server and then I activated the password trap and I logged out and I handed them the laptop."

    "Faroth showed up a few nights later with pizza and he said, 'I don't know what you did to Macrosoft, but one of their black ops labs exploded and leveled the entire property. The blast was spectacular. They were supposedly trying to log into your laptop. Come on and tell me what program did that. Pretty please. I'll use the puppy eyes.' And then I told Faroth about the court order they had gleaned to confiscate my laptop and I pointedly asked him how he knew they had my laptop since he wasn't even around the day they came and got it. When he couldn't give me a straight answer, I threw him out and told him that I was finished with him since he was obviously in cahoots with the enemy. and then a few weeks later, I guess they got revenge on me... boom... wheelchair. And Faroth showed up almost immediately after the explosion as if he knew about it. I kept quiet as I lay on the floor. That night my brother came in and he called a doctor friend of his from another city. I told him not to trust the local doctors. After I returned to Shinjuku after my hospital stay, Faroth saw me in the wheelchair and he sent word to Mrs. Heartstone to offer me the leg surgery but when Karal told me that it was Faroth who contacted him about it. I immediately rejected the offer. And now you know why, Karal. It isn't because I didn't want to owe your family for the help, but because Faroth had asked you without my family's authorization. So if all of you are suspicious of Faroth, you aren't the only ones."

    "However... in the last few weeks, he's been sporting a sweaty dog scent that I cannot explain. At first, I though a stray dog had holed himself up under our porch, but my brother looked and he said there was no animal scent under the porch. The new time I encountered Faroth, I paid attention to the scent and it was coming from him. I asked him if he had been working with dogs somewhere. He said no. But his scent was saying otherwise. So I told him that he needed to go bathe in a car wash because he was smelling worse than one of Karal's best summer workouts at the gym. I never mentioned to him that he was stinking of dog scent. Days later encountered him and he had the smell on him again. And I said, 'The non-existent dogs again. You reek of their scent, Faroth. If you're not going to be honest with me, then stop visiting me because you are insulting my intelligence.' And then he without warning learned that Macrosoft's Security division was wanting to hire me. And all of a sudden he is warning me not to work for them; to go to anyone else except them. My meeting tonight is with the Head programmer of their security division. Mr. A. Stalker. But with as weird as Faroth is acting and smelling very strangely I saw him in a partial dog costume once when I went to his home to ask him about something that only he could do. And I said, 'So that's where the dog scent is coming from when you come to my house. Just like a dirty dog... where did you steal that school mascot costume from?' And he asked me to wait outside while he changed clothes. As you all know, Shinjuku is the home of the Shinjuku Sharks. The closest canine Mascot is a good piece North of here nearly on the other side of the island."

    Zecma said, "Davyd... I think you should change your plans for tonight. Since you know that Arturo is Vance's father, you should go home with Vance and meet with his father there. We will contact your brother and have him distract Faroth for awhile.The message will be that you are working on the Back Alley Games Computer Mainframe at Finnpaw's request. Since Faroth likes to fib to his friends, that should be good enough for him. When your meeting with Arturo ends, you can be escorted back to your farmhouse in time for your 9 PM appointment with Kanisunfernomon. Vance, make sure Davyd makes it home. If you get attacked, Initiate a card battle. You both have some powerhouses. I don't think the bad guys want Chester's skunk to come back at night."

    Zecma said, "Okay, everyone has their form insurance. Report in tomorrow at my factory since the shop will be closed. This is Saturday night; try not to pussy whip too many bad guys in the family jewels. And dismissed."


    And the Beta Testers club departed from the gaming shop which was nearly empty at this hour.

    Vance was escorting Davyd back to his own house.

    Chester was being a gentleman and escorting Divina off toward her neighborhood. Besides, he was the one with the Digital Portal ability.

    Luke walked with the Heartstone boys.

    JT says, "I don't think I can. There isn't any slots any more, but I already have more slots than anyone...cause I keep getting new partners every time anyone else gets one! Well sorta. In a way."

    Karal says, "I think that's just keeping up with how synced you are to everyone's digimon. Not really 'your partner'. I think the...rainbow thing...is yours. But that's weird it doesn't seem to have a slot any more... Is that right, Finnpaw?"

    JT says, "I think it's cause I gotta acquire my partners differently.... Cause I'm Unity? whatever that means."

    Karal shrugs to JT then nods to Zecma, "I'm up for it." JT nodded as well.

    Kirsto grins, "Me too!"

    Kirsto also says, "As far as Faroth, he's always been weird but I agree it is a bit suspicious. Hey, what do you think, Davyd? You spend more time with him than anyone else."
