Digimon Seekers: Chapter 1-6

While we wait for Sunday’s chapter, I’ve decided to revise the Seekers story to fix some of the story’s awkwardness. I will keep the story the same but will try to make it sound nicer. This isn’t my story, so please make sure you check out the original. Let me know if this is something worth continuing. Make sure you start at chapter 1-1

After receiving his Digimon and the latest model of the Digimon dock, Eiji Nagasumi heads home. He stops by a restaurant in front of the train station to pick up a beef bowl. It’s been a while since he’s had meat.

Eiji enters a small one-bedroom apartment with a loft. The apartment is small and empty. There were a couple of mats to fill the room and a Buddhist altar surrounded by LED candles. Eiji doesn’t use incense to avoid causing a fire.

“Hey, I’m home. Mom, Dad, Grandpa, Grandma!” Eiji walks by the altar and looks over the pictures of his family. There is even a picture of a dog he used to have. He sits down to eat dinner alone and savors every bite.

Eiji looks down at the Digimon Linker that now decorates his wrists. “I’ve never seen a Digimon like this before” he mutters to himself. “Loogomon huh?” Eiji examines the dog-like Digimon.

“I want you to train the Digimon” Ryusenji’s words ring in his head. Eiji begins to search GriMM for advice on how to raise Loogomon. Digimon training jobs are extremely common on GriMM. As a Code Cracker, Eiji needed to learn to be a competent Digimon breeder and trainer. He needed all the help he could get.

“I am interested in seeing how you raise Loogomon. It is important for my research”

Eiji goes over the professor’s words. “If Ryusenji expects so much from me, I have no choice but to give it my all” Eiji shouts into the empty apartment. He had never been so excited in his life. But Eiji had no experience raising a Digimon, especially one so unique.

Eiji Looks over at the monochrome LCD screen that rests on his desk. A dotted Tyrannomon fills the display. It was Digimon Dock like the one he wore on his wrist, but an outdated model he built himself. The schematics can be found easily online. Eiji built it with readily available used parts he found online. Eiji owned a few Digimon Docks, but none of them were as good as the one he wore on his wrist.

The professor had mentioned something about the memory being corrupt in the Delivery Dock Eiji used to capture Betamon. “I’m going to need some parts,” Eiji says examining the parts scattered on his desk. But he already has a Digimon linker and doesn’t feel any urgency.

Eiji lays back in his bed and stares at the Loogomon. He smiles as he stares at the dog-like Digimon who seems to stare back. Loogomon felt like a good luck charm. One that he was determined to take good care of. But this meant that he would have to wear the Linker all the time. While the thought slightly bothered Eiji, he couldn’t help but feel excited.

For the next few days, Eiji takes his time to learn how to operate the Digimon Linker and watches as Loogomon grow. 

“Digimon grow fast,” Eiji thinks to himself as he feels Loogomon’s heartbeat against his wrist. “It’s almost like I have a kid,” Eiji says, smiling fondly at his newest digital companion.

Eiji spends a lot of time on GriMM’s breeder forums, asking questions and going through the many threads. Usually, a Digimon hatches from a Digitama and goes through a baby stage, but Loogomon was already in his child stage. Eiji asks for help, but he never mentions his relationship with Ryusenji or the existence of Loogomon.

“This might actually be kind of tough,” Eiji thinks to himself, beginning to regret the job. “It’s been a while since the last time I had a pet.” Eiji looks at the picture of his childhood dog sitting at the altar.

Eiji remembers the things he saw in D4. “The Digital World is real. Digimon are real.” The words echo in his head. Eiji was impressed with the work Ryusenji was doing and needed to see it again. He could feel he was a part of something exciting, and Loogomon was his golden ticket.

“If I raise you right,” he says to Loogomon “maybe I can get you to your ultimate form.” All Eiji had to do was become a top-notch cracker.

A notification comes in. Eiji picks up his phone. Someone replied to his question on GriMM.

Fang! Gratz on becoming a breeder! If you want to raise a Digimon past its child stage, I recommend keeping it with other Digimon. If you have more than one, they will play together and learn from each other

“I see,” Eiji says as he looks at the small LCD collecting dust on his desk. “I guess I need to introduce it the Tyrannomon!” He connects the Digimon Linker to the Tyrannomon dock. But in his excitement, Eiji failed to read the rest of the answer.

Be careful though. Some Digimon become obsessed with their rank in their pack. It’s important to train them a bit before introducing them to the new Digimon. 

The transfer completes. Eiji looks at the Digimon linker and…trouble
