When Clavis Angemon from reality 09 passed away instead of following the usual protocols , being reborn in a digiegg and become a new digimon, he opted to embrace humanity.
His soul traveled through time, space and realities until he settled into reality 01. He could had been reborn as a digital angel from that new reality instead he went through the most unconventional route: split his holy self into two souls!
The digital Angel of Time then was reborn as a boy and a girl at the same time in two distant places. The boy ´s born into the Worthington family house in Guilford, Surrey, UK; the girl was born into the Mikagura household in Tokyo, Japan. And if things weren´t interesting enough, they shared the same father. Neither kid realized this fact until their 11s when Mirei learned the truth about her biological father from her mother.
“I want to meet him” declared Mirei and after begging for a good while she finally managed to convince her mother to travel to London and pay a visit to the Worthington family. The mother , who used to be mrs Mikagura on and off lover until he called it the quits, initially was against the idea. But in the end relented. Despite feeling nothing but bitterness towards Sir Richard Worthington and his misogynist ways Mirei deserved to know where she came from and free to decide about building a bond with him or not.
After arriving unannounced to the mansion and the subsequent acrid welcome from the Worthingtons, Mirei headed to the gardens.
“Mother was right, father is a reverenced rat and is surrounded by idiots… ” the girl had to admit that meeting with all those witty people left her a bit tired “I wonder if the other kid is as messed up as the rest of the bunch…”
She was searching for the only person who wasn´t present in the meeting which was a shame because according to what she heard from the servants e “the little master” was the most adorable thing from the entire England.
“Adorable , huh? ” muttered Mirei ” certainly doubt it if he ´s born into this house” her thoughts were suddenly cut short when the figure of a boy emerged from the bushes. Until that moment Steve Worthington had been happily napping in the open instead of being in his room and doing his homework.
“Hey!” his emerald eyes opened wide in surprise when he realized the girl´s presence ” I didn´t know we had visitors today” and he brushed off the leaves from his hair.
Mirei limited to smile.
“Pleased to meet you, miss” the boy offered his hand ” Steve Worthington at your service”
“Likewise” she blinked in surprise when he courteously kissed her hand. Dammit, she thought, he´s adorable! “Mikagura. Mikagura Mirei”
“Judging by your accent I presume you are not from this land, am I right?” he tried his best not to laugh. That girl had the weirdest accent he heard in his life!
“You are right. I come from another island” after looking at him for 40 seconds the girl had reached a conclusion. He was cute and the type of guy who was raised as a gentleman but in reality Steve Worthington was a condescending asshole…and she LOVED to mess up with that type of people!
“Really? ” he was unaware about Mirei ´s true colors. All he saw was a cute foreign girl and just wanted to be friends with her “Where are you from?”
“You are kidding! really?!” he was delighted. Until that day he never met someone from that distant nation “Wow! that´s so cool! I always wanted to visit that country and…”
And he couldn´t help but immerse into an enthusiastic monologue about Japan and its wonders and everything he wanted to do when given the opportunity. He unceasingly spoke about the Tokyo Tower, Shibuya, ramen and his favorite animes. Mirei patiently heard his speech and let him spill his beans.
After 15 minutes of incessant speech , the boy realized that during all this time she did not open her mouth.
“Shoot! ” he reprimanded himself “I´m sorry, miss Mirei. I talked and talked and didn´t let you in the conversation…or the conversation between myself and myself!” he called himself all sort of names for being such an ass. Well, in fairness, he rarely spoke with girls besides his female cousins (which he found dreadfully boring ). He studied in an exclusive all-boys school and was expected of him to consecrate his time for studying. Steve dared not to complain but he would wish he was born in a more conventional household and going to public school and hang out with friends like in the the telly . Especially like in some American sitcoms “Shall we start again…?”
“Sure” her smile grew wider “You can begin by telling me your name again”
“Nice to meet you, I´m Steve Worthington” and he offered once more his hand.
“Likewise” and before he could kiss her hand she added “Oniisan”
“Excuse me?” he frowned, he knew some Japanese words and wondered if he heard wrong.
Mirei did not let go of his hand, instead she pressed it harder.
“Nice to meet you, Steve Worthington. ” her eyes shone dangerously “I´m Mikagura Mirei and I´m your sister….”
Invisible to them, their former selves Clavis Angemon was watching. He barely could contain a joyful smile, he certainly wouldn´t be bored in his current incarnations.
Not at all.
