A scene from chapter 26:
“NO FREAKING WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
That was the new vox populi phrase of the moment, echoing in several places at the same time in identical horrified notes that would make Mozart proud if he was still alive and hanging around in the Digiworld.
“NO WAY! NO WAY! NO WAY!!!!” that was Mimi Tachikawa ´s glorious Cantata of shock “IT CANNOT BEEEEEE!!!!!!!!NO! NO! NO!!!!!!”
Forget about being on the brink of death in the sky , the spectacle of a giant-nasty-horrendous dragon that almost tore the plane followed by a not less impressive giant white bird , a winged greymon-style digimon that also showed up from nowhere and the immense light that covered everything…nothing of those mattered to Mimi at the moment.
” WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!” Mimi Tachikawa, back into her 10s and wearing the frilly-pink-cartoonish cowgirl outfit emerged like a torpedo from the plane. ” I´LL KILL SOMEBODY, I SWEAR!!!!”
Nobody dared to cut short her hysteria moment. Michael and his digimons, who woke up sometime before the princess were still getting accustomed to the new reality. The weird transformation wasn´t as important as the fact as they SURVIVED and miraculously landed in the Digiworld.
“Is she always like THAT?” asked a female voice that certainly did not come from Mimi.
“Gosh, I take back everything I said about Makoto-san. That person is more INSUFFERABLE than HIM” a second female voice took the word “SO NOISY!”
“Uh….who..are you…?” Michael ´s mind was like a milkshake. It was quite hard for him to adjust to the current reality when he hardly could make any sense of it or the strangers that were by his side.Two teenager girls and a set of Agumon and Gabumon were contemplating Mimi´s hysteria, the brown haired and tanned girl with googles smirked, apparently delighted with the scene while the blonde gal (who suspiciously could pass as Yamatto Ishida´s elder sister) seemed bored.
“The ones who saved your asses from an imminent death” declared the blonde “Gosh! How longer does she plan yelling like that? She´s worse than a gaudy trumpet…!”
“MICHAEL! MICHAEL!!!!!” Mimi rushed to her husband´s side “OH NO! IT HAPPENED TO YOU TOO!!!”
“WHYYYYY?!!! WHYYY?!!!!” and she pointed at her now flat chested body “AND RIGHT BEFORE OUR HONEYMOON!!!!I HATE THISSS!!!”
“Holy digimentals, you are kids again!” exclaimed Palmon
“Just like in the first day” Betamon almost tripped with the last step from the stairs “And why are we in the Digiworld?”
The only reply they got was a tremendous bawl from Mimi. She was so immersed in the ocean of misery because of her looks that practically forgot to ask Palmon and Betamon what were they doing in the plane instead of staying back in New York as they were supposed to be.
The Digidestined of Sincerity was also too busy crying to pay any attention to the Cessna that was standing a few metres from Michael´s jet, the two teenager girls dressed in high school uniforms staring at them and the Agumon and Gabumon set which, by the way, was trying not to laugh.
While hugging his de-aged wife, Michael again asked who they were.
“Hello fellow digidestineds, are you okay?” asked the brown haired girl. Michael´s heart went into a turmoil of emotions when he noticed the googles. They were identical to Taichi-san´s!
“I guess so..?” gosh! even his voice was back to his 14s.
“Oh Lord! I hate sopranos!” added the second girl . Michael´s heart shrieked a bit because she kinda reminded him of… Yamatto? The hair, the blue eyes, the sober yet fierce expression…!
“Kiddo, I am really going to lose it if you don´t zip that hysterical diva´s mouth once at all” grumbled the blonde, crossing her arms. Her tone sent a chill to Palmon and Betamon´s spines. From what they could appreciate she wasn´t kidding!
“Uhh..please bear it a bit more. She`ll soon calm down, I promise!” he patted Mimi´s head , trying to calm her hysteria.
“Really?” The girls exchanged a skeptic look “We are talking about a Tachikawa!”
“UH-HUH!” their digimons assented.
” How doyou know about my wife´s maiden surname?!” Michael ´s eyes were like a pair of lamps. Opened wide and sparkling with curiosity “Wait! Unless you were present in our wedding…you are Taichi and Yamatto´s relatives, right?” Yep, that should be the case. It was quite plausible since more than 300 people attended the event…
“Yes! they look like Taichi-san and Yamatto-san very much!” Palmon clapped with enthusiasm “How come they never introduced you to the rest of the gang? ”
The girls again exchanged another glare and shook their heads.
“A wedding you say? Not a chance!” laughed the google girl ” But yeah, you could say we are…err..distant relatives of those guys” and pinched her friends´s arm when the other opened her mouth to rebuff her words “Very distant relatives, right Miyako-chan…?”
The pinch hurt quite a bit and Miyako-chan replied “You are right, Tia-chan. We are distant, very distant cousins…”
