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 chapter. Let me know if this is something worth continuing. Make sure you start at chapter 1-1
Cargodramon hovers over Eiji and Loogamon. Its harsh spotlight rains over the pair as the sounds of the rotors drown out most sounds. Several squads of Commandramon slowly surround them.
“This is the DigiPolice. Give up code cracker. We have you surrounded!” The warning repeats over the megaphone.
“Dammit!” Eiji shouts. For a code cracker, there is no police force in Japan scarier than the Digipolice. But despite his fear, Eiji couldn’t help but feel excited. “This is so cool! I’ve never seen the DigiPolice before. Loogamon, take a picture of the Cargodramon.”
Loogamon is tense, its fur standing on edge. “My eyes aren’t cameras,” it snaps. Loogamon glares at the hovering Cargodramon.
Cargodramon has its attention on Loogamon. Its sensors scan the blue wolf.
Mindlink active, a robotic voice announces as the scan completes. Satsuki Tamahime sits at her command station inside the Commandramon. She shifts her attention between the many monitors surrounding her. She watches as the Commandramon move into position. She watches the two criminals frozen at the base of the cul-de-sac, She reads over the scan data as it comes in.
Satsuki doesn’t look like the typical DigiPolice agent. She wears the standard DigiPolice uniform but has styled it to fit her aesthetic. Her black shoulder-length hair falls from under a baseball cap. She’s dyed the inner layer a bright green. She wears a loose-fitting jacket that now hangs around her shoulder. Her thick combat boots are kicked up on the console. She smiles as she brings the mic to her mouth.
“You guys are with that Sons of Chaos group aren’t you? I got it right, didn’t I?”
“Got it right? I don’t know what you’re talking about.” Loogamon replies.
“Don’t play dumb forehead. I know you and lame brain are Mindlinked. I need you to come quietly and answer some questions”
Eiji and Loogamon look at each other. The interaction felt a bit too informal than they expected from the DigiPolice.
“Cooperate with us and I’ll make sure you won’t get into… too much trouble,” Satsuki says in a singsongy tone.
“Nah, I’m good,” Eiji replies as he starts to walk away.
Satsuki giggles “Oh?! Don’t say I didn’t warn you! M16 Assult!”
Bullets explode into the ground around Eiji and Loogamon as the Commandramon move into position.
“Hey! They’re really firing at us!” Eiji shouts as he feels the wind from a stray bullet pass over his head.
“Relax! Those were just warning shots.”
“You must have the wrong definition of warning,” Eiji mutters, looking at the nearby bullet holes.
Suddenly, the doors of the Cargodramon open. A long rope falls to a space in front of them. Satsuki slides down the rope, landing with a light thud. She dusts off her jacket and turns her attention to Eiji.
“Hey…You’re kind of cute”
Wind from the Cargodramon kicks up dust around them. The sounds of the Cammadramon’s boots continue to move in closer. Eiji doesn’t take his eyes off the policewoman.
“What do you want?”
“Ok, straight to business then,” Satskuki says as she moves closer to Eiji and Loogamon.
She’s cute, Eiji thinks before quickly shaking the thought. He needs to focus.
“So what are you doing for the Sons of Chaos code cracker? Are you poaching Digitama? We’re going to find out, so its better you just fess up now.”
Eiji can see squads of Commandramon pointing their weapons toward their location. Loogamon stands in a tense stance. Satsuki smiles sweetly at Eiji as she waits for a response.
“Hey, Loogamon… What would happen if you got shot?”
Loogamon lets out a fanged smile. “Let’s find out.”
This time, the explosions were much louder. Loogamon’s run was cut short as the ground in front of it explodes with a hail of 30 mm bullet fire. The railgun on the Cargodramon continues to spin as it fixes its aim on Loogamon.
The smell of gunpowder lingers in the air. Eiji finds himself crippled with the pain from a couple of lucky bullets that managed to hit.
“I get it now,” Eiji says, trying to fight through the pain. “If you get hit by a bullet, it hurts.”
Satsuki looks irritated. “I told ya code cracker, there’s no escape. Your only choice is to cooperate. You don’t want to die in Mindlink, do ya?”
Eiji shakes his head. He knew better than to mess with someone with such a short fuse.
“Good, now tell me what you’re doing here.”
“I was…I was just walking. Mapping the area for..research. I am researching the Digital World!”
“You’re what? Cargodramon!”
A voice in Satsuki’s earpiece replies, “I see no signs of Digitama Ma’am.”
“In other words….?”
“Looks like they were just taking a walk, just as they claim.”
“Ugggg” Satsuki looks visibly frustrated. There is a hint of disappointment in her tone. Even if Eiji were a Sons of Chaos Member, there isn’t enough evidence for an arrest. Satsuki shakes her head and smiles devilishly. “Well you must be up to something. No one just takes a stroll down Ninth Avenue. I know you’re up to something suspicious, and you’re going to tell me what it is!”
“This lady is crazy,” Eiji checks the virtual monitor. He looks at the Cargodramon floating above him, the Commandramon surrounding him, and Satsuki’s bloodthirsty stare. “It’s no use Loogamon, we have to get out of here…Loogamon?” Eiji turns to Loogamon, but he was already gone.
Two markers disappear from the map as sharp fangs rip through body armor. Before Eiji has a chance to react, two more markers disappear. Loogamon rips through a whole squad of Commandramon before appearing in front of the crimson mausoleum.
“This is my home!” Loogamon howls. Its fur stands down its back, its fangs clench in a snarl as it lets out a menacing grown.
‘Th-thi-this is obstruction of justice! You’re in trouble now!” Satsuki shouts.
“Woah! Loogamon, you took out those Commandramon so easily.” Eiji is impressed by his partner’s sudden show of strength before a sudden realization overcomes him. “You can’t attack the DigiPolice!”
“Why not?” Loogamon remains in his tense stance. The Digipolice begins recovering their felled comrades.
“Now you’ve done it!” Satsuki shouts back, “You’re under arrest for messing with the DigiPolice!”
“You have no authority here,” Loogamon smirks. “The only law in the Wall Slums is eat, or be eaten!”
“This was supposed to be easy,” Eiji mutters to himself as he scratches his head nervously. He logs into Grimm to talk to the Interviewer, but he isn’t online. “Not good!”
“You’re going to pay for this!” Satsuki says as she rolls up her sleeve. Eiji notices a smartwatch device on her wrist. It is a Digidock the same as his but a different color. Suddenly, the police lights turn.
“Loogamon, this lady can Mindlink too!”
Loogamon returns to Eiji’s side as they brace for a new attack. Eiji looks at the chaos surrounding them.
“Her Digimon partner must be…over there!” Loogamon looks up at the Cargodramon as it moves to the space above them. A loud boom sounds as the cargo hatch opens up, revealing a mysterious figure waiting behind it.
“What the hell is that?”
A hideous blob inches towards the edge.
The Digimon shoves itself out of the edge and lands with a heavy thud.
“NUMEEEEEEEEEE” a huge slug shouts.
“Its a Numemon!”
