((OOC: Here we go guys. I hope this all makes sense. ><.))
It really wasn't like Luna to be this angry about anything. Ever. Usually, quarrels with her parents were over silly things, such as homework, or why she beat up the local idiots, or even why she decided to sleep in through her first classes (which to Luna, was the silliest thing they could argue with her about. They'd said themselves many a time that a growing girl such as herself needed extra rest... and she was complying to that need awfully well...).
But no, this was entirely different. For once in Luna's life, she had found something worth putting her full effort into. What was it you might ask? Well, it was a request in a special letter she'd received from none other than the famous Henry Lee: one of the original Tamers from Japan. In all her excitement, Luna rushed to her parents and read the e-mail she'd printed out:
Dear Digimon Tamers,
Do not ask how I found you, or found out how you have a Digimon; just hear me out. If you were not aware of this already, the world is in a terrible crisis. Normally, it would go against anyone’s moral values to call a bunch of kids to the battlefield, but I’m confident you can help, because I myself am one of you: a Digimon Tamer.
You see, recently, a group of us battled with an invasion of Parisamon. Depending on where you are located, you may have heard about this fight. Unfortunately, things didn’t go according to plan. The most powerful of us, Takato Matsuki, and another Tamer Rika Makino, have been stranded in the Digital World atop a speeding Locomon.
We would have already gone to try and find him, but Digimon are pouring out of the portal with no mercy, so the rest of us are a bit tied up here. As a fellow Tamer, I was hoping you would help us and venture the Digital World to find our two friends, and perhaps whatever is causing this mess. In the meantime, the few that remain of us out here will keep as many Digimon at bay as possible. If you can help, please respond as soon as you can.
Her parents immediately said no and Luna had immediately retorted. Soon enough there was a full fledged argument; It was "too dangerous," "too expensive to fly to Japan," and her Digimon would "just cause more trouble..."
At the last one, Luna stomped out of the house. No one insulted her Digimon, not even her parents.
"Dracmon," she said after many minutes of walking in fuming anger. "We're going to Japan. I don't care what my parents say... we're going."
"That's the kind of fun I'm talking about!" Dracmon replied, jumping into the air and spinning as he ran to keep up with Luna's long strides. "It's time to do some good ol' fashion Digimon butt-kicking!"
Luna couldn't help but smile at Dracmon's playful antics... or maybe they weren't so playful. Either way, Luna couldn't agree more. She was more than game for venturing the Digital World.
In her excitement, Luna strapped her sister's goggles to her head, and ran into the library, Dracmon close behind. As they entered, a few people screamed, completely surprised to see a Digimon walking around the bookshelves, but Luna wasn't exactly thinking about what she was doing. All she needed now, was a computer.
Finally, she got to what she was looking for, and (with a little help from Dracmon terrorizing a person off a desktop), sat down to do her work. She accessed her email, clicking the reply button:
For a moment, she paused, wondering what she should say back to Henry. But then shrugged, realizing it didn't matter so much.
Henry, she started, pausing again. She tapped on the enter key a few times, and then, with another burst of excitement, continued her letter.
Count me and Dracmon in. Just tell me how to get there, and I'll get there.
With that, Luna clicked send. Almost immediately after, a response was sent.
From our trackers we can see that you've sent this message from the USA. We've arranged for a ship to depart from Los Angeles, California towards Japan in two days time. If you are not located there, I can only say good luck getting there yourselves. This was the best we could get. Once you've arrived in Japan at the port, one of us will guide you to Hypnos, where we will explain your mission further.
Luna blinked at the screen for a few moments, taking it all in.
"Los Angeles?" Dracmon reread distastefully. "How do they expect us to get all the way down there? We can't drive."
"Hmm," Luna replied thoughtfully. Unfortunately, she was cut off by a security guard, demanding that she take her "horrible monster" out of the library. At that, Dracmon nearly went for the man's face, but Luna caught him mid jump, and calmly exited the building.
"Let me at 'im!" Dracmon screamed, struggling all the while. Finally, Luna stopped in the middle of a park, letting Dracmon down gently.
"Chill out. I know how we can get to LA."
((OOC: Basically, that response is what you'll be getting, and then its up to you to make it to the ship. If there are any questions, please ask in the discussion thread. Happy posting! XD))
