Kyoko fidgeted, desperate to convince Kyra of her feelings. She shifted and slowly leaned forward on her hands, bringing mismatched eyes to stare straight and levelly into ice blue ones. "I didn't mean to hurt you... I never did,"she said voice quivering slightly as her brain came crashing to a conclusion, an idea. It was painful and strangled her but she also knew it was one of the best ways to regain such fragile, broken trust.

"I... I can leave and never come back,"Kyoko continued, her voice wavering. "I mean... If you want me to go, Kyra-chan... I will... and I won't come back unless you come find me..." She bit her lip. "So please... don't hate me,"she said. "I promise I won't come back unless you find me... unless you want me back..."

Kyra took a deep breath, staring cooly back into Kyoko's mismatched eyes. The colors gave them an odd effect, almost easy to overlook, but not at such close range. Kyra was silent some moments, thinking hard, peering into those eyes as though the intensity of her gaze would pierce any lies. Kyra knew what Vanguard would say if she were here, but she wasn't. Even One seemed to simply be watching.

"Fine," she said at last. Kyra pulled the key out of her pocket and held it lightly in her hand. "But I'll hold you to your word," she added quietly. Or else. The words hung ominously in her mind, echoed in her own voice.

Squinting slightly, she leaned forward and slipped the key into the shackle still locked around Kyoko's ankle. The key twisted in the lock, and the metal band slipped open.

Kyra leaned back, her fingertips just barely brushing Kyoko's leg as her hand withdrew. Kyra pondered what it had meant between them in that moment, but she was too confused right now. It was just making her head hurt. She felt like she needed a chance to clear her head, and then take it in properly. Maybe if she could hold off on the immediate urge to pop Kyoko one if they saw each other again, that fence could see some mending.

"You sure about this, Kyra?" said One, speaking up for the first time. It wasn't a challenge, just a question. This wasn't the Commandramon's strongsuit, all he could do was back her up as best she could.

"Yes," said Kyra, backing away slightly. "Goodbye, Kyoko." Her farewell expression was far from warm, but it didn't have the heat of fury either, instead only giving off the thinnest impression of her inner turmoil.

Annnd... This is done. :) At long last. And while we have a new rule about smaller DEP increments, this thread took place well before that rule was established. Furthermore, it took so long and the writing was excellent. So. I'm giving .25 DEP to Kyra and Vn can distribute it however he likes amongst Kyra's partners. Also a nice wad of bits. 600 bits. <3 It was so much fun doing this adventure with you, Vn, and I hope you enjoyed it as well.

((^^ Thank you for all your hard work, and the good times.))

Kyra chewed her lip as the door to her room yawned wide. It gave a loud, ominous creak as it did so, and that did nothing for Kyra's unease. It wasn't the prospect of the room itself that unsettled her, as this whole mansion had quickly begun to feel like home. No, it was the one who typically shared this room with Kyra that lead to this feeling. Had she been thinking about it at the time, Kyra would've found it odd that she was almost as nervous about the prospect of talking to her first partner as she was going into true battle.

Vanguard, currently only Dokunemon thanks to the energy drain of her very first Ultimate evolution, slumbered on one of the pillows. “Vanguard?” Kyra said, slowly sitting on the edge of the bed. “C'mon, fuzzball,” she said, a little louder. “Wake up.”

Vanguard stirred, and Kyra assumed she opened her eyes – hard to tell on her current species – as she picked her head up. “Kyra? Is everything alright?”

Kyra opened her mouth to answer, but nothing came out. She shrugged and shook her head. “I don't know,” she said finally. “Hindsight's twenty-twenty, but I feel like if only I'd -”

“Kyra,” Vanguard cut across her gently. “I told you. Don't pin so much of it on yourself... we're all here to protect you. Or at least,” she shivered. “We're supposed to be.” There was definite bitterness in her voice. She scuttled over off the pillow, coming to rest near Kyra's leg. “Bishop and I were out of the way,” she said in an unconvincing attempt at a casual voice, one that was clearly about to break anyway. “All she needed was trick One...”

The Dokunemon shook her head, an odd gesture for a caterpillar. “I have my doubts about his loyalty to you, but that's for another time. Did you want to talk about something?” Again, Vanguard tried to sound casual, but Kyra saw through it. Nonetheless, she appreciated it, compared to trying to wrest the truth from her, as Kyra had thought she might.

The truth was, Kyra wanted the truth of it buried, dead, and forgotten. In any particular order, she wasn't picky. Yet Kyra felt like she owed Vanguard what happened. Kyoko had already confirmed it all to be true, so Kyra could set aside the thought that telling someone about it would make it seem more legitimate.

Taking a very deep breath, Kyra launched into the explanation. She started with the attack on the mansion, and told Vanguard as much as she could remember. There were still a few gaps here and there, but it wasn't enough to keep Kyra from having the whole picture now, or telling it to Vanguard. She'd trusted Kyoko during the staged attack on the mansion, and Kyoko had run with that trust to 'help' her.

The explanation of what Kyoko had done once her plan had come to fruition caused Vanguard to unleash a string of such coarse insults that Kyra could hardly believe the normally gentle Digimon would know them. As the astonishment passed, Kyra felt herself smile, and wanted to laugh.

Yet Vanguard was then somber, oddly silent, and rather still. She didn't have the heart to tell Kyra that she was afraid it had been even worse, not that what had happened was anything to brush off. “Damn her,” hissed Vanguard, and she found herself unsure whether she cursed the little bunny, or her dark overlord.

“I don't know,” said Kyra. “There's no denying she's messed up, thinking that would help me, but the way she talks. It's like she genuinely believes what she was doing was to help me.”

“Either she's that messed up,” said Vanguard crossly, and then she turned her head to look at Kyra. “Or she's just trying to give herself another shot at it.”

“No arguing with that,” Kyra said in response to the first bit. “But she's had so many chances, to keep going or try it again, if she was really in it for herself.”

“Don't put yourself in her shoes,” Vanguard said, rising up slightly and shaking her head. “Are those really anything more than excuses for her?” Vanguard opted not to point out how often she found herself making excuses for Kyra's behavior. “Do you feel helped, Kyra?” the Dokunemon asked rhetorically. “Don't feel obligated to accept her apology... if she's even bothered giving one. You don't owe her anything. Where is she?”

“Gone,” said Kyra, silent after that, for she was still mulling over Vanguard's words. It was true, Kyra didn't owe Kyoko anything, except perhaps a kick down the stairs. But Kyra hadn't been able to unleash the full, savage fury of her dark side upon Kyoko, even as the little bunny departed the mansion. Maybe she should have joined with Lady Devimon, but her heart just hadn't been in it. “She's promised I won't see her again unless I go looking for her.”

“Do you believe her?” Vanguard said, her voice flat before she lapsed into more muttered discontents. “Tenshi-san – inviting herself in – unforgivable,” were among the words Kyra overheard.

“She believes it,” Kyra said, shaking her head. She picked up the silvery instrument that Grace had given her and flicked it on. The device hummed to life, and she administered another treatment to her damaged vision. Fortunately, the damaged part of that was becoming less and less true by the hour. She still got occasional flickers, and sometimes saw things splashed with colors they plainly weren't – such as a red banana and Bishop seafoam green, but she was almost back to normal. She figured this treatment would be her last, though she'd keep the device handy.

“But,” Kyra said slowly, and she saw Vanguard shift slightly. “This is her last chance. One slip up, one step back... and you won't have to worry about her ever again.” Her hand shifted less than a millimeter toward her knife, she fixed the Dokunemon with an icy eye, and Vanguard nodded in apparent satisfaction.

For once, Vanguard though privately, she shared every one of Kyra's ill intents for Kyoko. She'd wanted to believe all this time that her bad gut feeling about Kyoko had been nothing but paranoia. Instead, she had been proven right in ways worse than she'd first imagined, though not as badly as she had initially feared upon Kyoko's return with Kyra. She fell silent, too much of her mind focused singly on not evolving on the spot and tearing after Kyoko. The conniving witch deserved far worse than to shuffle out, never to face her victim or justice for her crimes.

Vanguard vaguely heard Kyra declare her intent to shower, and the dark-haired girl stepped into the bathroom. The Dokunemon sat alone on the bed, increasingly lost in thought. Her animosity for Kyoko was a fire quickly building into an all-out inferno, pure disbelief that someone could act that way for some supposed benefit. Instead Kyra was hurt and confused now, even as her body was finishing its recovery.

But, Vanguard noted, Kyra had trusted her with the truth of what happened. The thought of Kyra trusting Vanguard with something that clearly unsettled her so did hearten the Dokunemon somewhat. She's still Kyra, Vanguard thought, shuffling down the side of the bed. The energy spent evolving had her stomach rumbling, and there was some dark chocolate cake in the kitchen with her name on it.

----

The hot water and roiling steam of the shower breathed new life into Kyra. The shower had been unnecessarily long, but the anomalies in Kyra's vision were almost entirely gone now. The few days' rest had felt like an eternity. For not being able to battle much, however, it had been a very interesting period. In some ways good, in others... not so much.

But now thought Kyra, as she toweled off, looking at her crystal-clear, haughty, determined, dangerous reflection in the mirror. It's time to get back out there. Where I belong, with my friends by my side.

She dressed, donning gunmetal gray pants, boots with frontal greaves, a belt set with two rows of holes, her favorite purple tank top, and then her favored over top, a leather vest with red trim and dark long sleeves.

Kyra tugged her gloves on, and attached her knife holster to the outside of her belt. Her eyes swept the length of the gleaming blade, inspecting its length with a practiced eye. Satisfied by what she saw, she stowed the implement. She tugged the straps on the greaves tight and then stood, her nerves energized, her body ready, her mind likewise.

Four had left the graveyard, five returned to it. The fifth had no idea where she was, and probably would not have liked one bit where she was headed. Fortune had put Kyra in the training fields at the same time as that pestilent light tamer Lexi. A battle ensued, if a rather one-sided one.

One loss in simulated battle conditions wasn't enough suffering for all the trouble Kyra had been through as a result of her last encounter with Lexi's group. It wasn't normally Kyra's way to drag things out, her methods were swift and harsh. But Lexi deserved worse. So, leaving Lexi's partners, Kyra had taken Lexi instead.

"So," said Vanguard, walking at Kyra's side. The Angewomon's heels tapped a steady rhythm on the stone path up to the mansion. "What are we going to do with her?"

"Could just turn her over to Insomnia," said One. The Commandramon walked along at the back of the group, his index claw not quite on the trigger of his rifle.

Kyra mulled it over. What did she want to do? She could always just blind Lexi, as Kodi had blinded her, and dump her in the middle of nowhere. That would put Lexi at the mercy of whoever found her, and the Digital World was often an unforgiving place.

Just handing Lexi over to Insomnia didn't feel right either. Certainly, it would probably lead to much suffering on Lexi's part, but unless Kyra was privy to it, it would not slake her thirst. It also wasn't her style to just hand over a prize and hope some distant boss deemed it worthy of a reward.

"I say we just lock her in the dungeon, let her rot," said Bishop, still carrying an unconscious Lexi slung over his shoulder. Kyra's jacket had been put over her head, so that Lexi wouldn't be able to get even glimpses of where they were going if she woke up.

"Tempting," said Kyra with a grin, as she pushed the front doors wide. She stood to the side, letting her partners enter first. "Take her to basement," she said to Bishop. "Chain her up and blindfold her. See how she likes it."

Bishop nodded and headed in that direction. Kyra however hung back, and Vanguard noticed. She remained silent, watching Kyra, curious.

Thinking a moment, her arms folded, Kyra came to a conclusion. It wasn't in her nature to ask for help, but she suspected Insomnia could provide the help she needed to reduce Lexi's already dismal chances of escape to zero.

At her command, the d-ban began dialing a known number. A bizarrely blue picture of a weasel appeared on her screen. "'Ello, madamemoiselle?" the voice sounded tiny and flat coming from such a small speaker.

"Emile," Kyra said, to the point. "Does Insomnia have anything that can disable a captured tamer's d-ban? I need it."

That request seem to catch Emile off guard, for he was silent a moment. Perhaps he was conferring with Insomnia. "We do indeed. I will send it." Kyra's d-ban emitted a soft ping as it received a file. "Just upload it to zee uzzer person's d-ban. Also, you will be glad to know zat zee terrorist ship was destroyed. Alas, it seems to 'ave been a draw. A base for a base. It has not bothered 'er however." There seemed to be only one 'her' he could be referring to that way. "A new matter 'as attracted 'er attention, one which we 'ope will 'elp her efforts against 'er enemies."

"Right," said Kyra, only halfway listening. "Kyra out." She hung up, mildly curious what Insomnia was up to, but currently more interested in the file she'd been sent. A simplified, blocky image of a Nanomon appeared on the screen of her d-ban, his jaws working and his arms waving. "A computer virus...?" she wondered, hoping it wouldn't damage her d-ban in the process. That wasn't what she asked for.

Vanguard followed Kyra silently down the stairs into the dungeon. Kyra knew that Vanguard was normally far too gentle to condone let alone enjoy this kind of thing, but the angel held a special animosity of her own. She too had connected Kyra's injury to the light tamer now in their custody. Her partners would also suffer in her capture, their imaginations supplying them with all manner of horrors their tamer could be subjected to.

Dim, flickering light illuminated the oppressive stone of the windowless room. Even with the ghosts of the mansion's former masters gone from the place, it seemed like there was a darkness here that not even brilliant sunlight could have expunged.

Bishop had carried Lexi into a barred cell and laid her against the wall. A blindfold had been tied over her eyes, and Bishop had gotten the shackles ready so that they hung down from the wall over Lexi's head. He'd also removed anything that could have been dangerous from her person, though her cards and what seemed like a lot of other things had been left at the sight of the battle. "Oh, hey Kyra," He'd devolved to Renamon, finding the smaller frame easier to use now. "Want to do the honors?"

"Don't mind if I do," Kyra strode over and raised her d-ban. "But first things first. She tapped a control on her d-ban, and the screen changed. A progress bar appeared, slowly filling as it sent the virus to Lexi's d-ban. A chime sounded from Kyra's d-ban, and then a similar tone came from Lexi's.

Then however the sound repeated in a choppy, echoing fashion. A burst of static followed, and then a high tone of warning. The alert tone was choppy, as though the d-ban's systems had been so thoroughly compromised that even a simple warning was difficult for it now. A glance down at the display of the blue and orange device showed nothing but static.

Package delivered flashed on Kyra's d-ban, and then a new menu appeared. Curious, Kyra tapped it. A blue bar appeared on the screen, an assortment of orange menu items listed below it. The items looked familiar... they were all menus and commands on the d-ban. "So... not only did it disable her from using her d-ban, but put its functions under my control. Cool." A frigid, predatory smile appeared on her face.

As she lifted Lexi's arms and locked the manacles around her wrists, Kyra resisted the urge to give a hard punch. There was no sense in hitting Lexi when she wasn't conscious enough to feel it.

Vanguard seemed to have no such compunctions, her lips pressed into the thinnest line Kyra had ever seen them. The Angewomon's visible face appeared stony, her motions jerky, as though it was taking every ounce of self control to keep from assaulting Lexi. She stepped forward, driving the heel of her boot into the top of Lexi's foot. "Enjoy - your - stay," she hissed lowly.

Kyra made a brief, tiny snort of amusement. That sounds like something Bishop would say. Maybe she's trying to emulate him.

It hurt...

Everything hurt...

That was exactly it. Everything hurt. Every fiber of her being was racked with pain even as she slowly began to pull herself out of unconsciousness. She began to try and recall what exactly had happened to her, despite the immediate cut off of all memory after a certain determined point. Along with the sense of pain that was demanding far more of her attention.

When she could bring herself to do it. Her eyes slowly opened, allowing a moment to adjust to...darkness? This place was very dark. It also felt very cold...as if she was underground or somewhere deep below the surface. Her attention soon turned to another thing she sensed, her hands being bound together. Moreover, the sensation of her feet not being able to touch the ground. The hardness of a stone wall at her back, and the notion that she was all alone in this strange place.

That was when it all finally clicked in her mind. She couldn't recall it right away, but she knew it the familiarity of her situation. She was fighting a battle...the battle took a nasty turn...someone hit her-

Wait, Kyra!

The full weight of her predicament finally hit Lexi like the wall at her backside. She was fighting Kyra last she remembered. The battle was only getting started when Kyra went on the war path and swung her punches. She got hurt, and then...black.

Soon the feeling of dread began to set in for the tamer of light, along with the unwanted sense of deja vu all over again. It really was like deja vu. Right down to the method of knocking the girl out, and the set-up she presently found herself in only with minor changes. Kyra had knocked her out and kidnapped her...just like Piedmon tried doing to her only months ago...

But that was when the fear really began to set in. Piedmon only wanted to make her his tamer and was willing to bend backwards just to win her over to his side. Kyra outright hated her and wanted to inflict as much bodily harm to her as possible. Knowing the dark tamer, she was planning on extracting her revenge for blinding her, or whatever the hell she was being blamed for this time.

"HELP!! SOMEONE LET ME OUT OF HERE!!"

Lexi screamed at the top of her lungs for her freedom. But her pleas for help would most likely go unanswered considering where she was. Lexi soon fell silent as she tried to process this. She was gonna have to come up with some way of getting out of here and fast! Her partners were likely somewhere else for all she knew, but maybe if she got out of these shackles...

As Kyra strolled down the stairs of her home, she felt a deep sense of satisfaction. The inner warmth and calm had stayed with her since waking up from her short nap. The nap itself had recharged her, and the thought that her enemy was imprisoned beneath her feet put a spring in her booted step.

In some respects, it surprised her she had been able to sleep at all, but the adrenaline rush passing and the thrill of success had proven to be effective sleep aids. Many of her recent problems could be traced back to Kyra's prisoner, problems that resulted in feelings of humiliation and vulnerability. But now it would be time to even the scales.

Lexi's partners hadn't had a chance against the ferocious and sudden attack Kyra's group had launched, and there was satisfaction in that too, though it had been sudden. Alas, she wouldn't see the suffering those three would be going through now, their powerlessness thrown in their face and their tamer taken from them.

"Hey Princess," the idle voice greeted her as she stepped into the kitchen, feeling rather peckish.

Kyra glanced over at the Renamon sitting on the counter, his ears twitching. A sandwich thickly piled with meat and dripping with dressing was clutched in Bishop's three-fingered hands. "Sleep well?" Bishop asked, his blue eyes unusually focused on Kyra.

"Fairly," said Kyra, popping open the fridge. She sighed. No one in the house was really much of a cook, and One's MREs were nutritious but the macaroni and cheese tasted oddly like chicken. Snack food only held appeal for so long. It wasn't good for her either, though the average person probably wouldn't believe she cared much about appearances. Her body didn't stay in shape all on its own, and she'd been a little sluggish lately.

"Oho," said Bishop, tilting his head at a sound Kyra didn't hear, namely Lexi's futile cry for help. "I think our guest is awake. Should we go and greet her?"

"In a bit." Despite her casual tone, Kyra felt a vibration run down her spine. The thrill of anticipation, knowing that she was in control now. Lexi had been helpless even with her partners, without them...

"Wouldn't it be funny if we turned her over to Insomnia, and ol' Inny turned her into a dark tamer and sent her back as your minion?"

Kyra snorted as she decided to try one of One's prepackaged meals anyway. A trip through the microwave and the steak and eggs was ready to eat. It was a hearty meal, leaving Kyra feeling pleasantly full.

Bishop slid off the counter. "Want some popcorn? Or should we call the others down?"

"I imagine Vanguard will want her turn, but no, she's still asleep." The two had settled down together, but the Dokunemon was still dozing, and mumbling in her sleep. Kyra even felt a faint amount of pleasure that for once, Vanguard seemed as irate as Kyra. Lexi had caused the group no end of problems, and Vanguard seemed to hold their foes responsible for some of Kyra's recent suffering.

The basement door creaked ominously as Kyra stepped through, Bishop close behind her. They reached the bottom, and Bishop flicked the lights on. Torches flickered to life, casting a dancing orange across the dungeon. Hung on the wall like the prize she was, was Lexi Tashimi.

"Hello, Lexi," said Kyra, her grin the kind that could give Baalmon shivers. Bishop stood close by, eager for the show he was sure was coming.

Hearing her voice cut through the darkness... Seeing her face again after all that had happened in the course of only a few hours. It was a chilling sight to say the least. Her sickening smile...it was the kind of smile that only the wicked wore when they had their prey right where they wanted them. With no escape, no way out, no hope for rescue.

"Kyra..." Lexi had to put on a face that showed she was not going to be effected by her mere appearance. She didn't want Kyra to have the joy of seeing her scared, or in a panic frame of mind.

She noted her Renamon was at her side, like a lap dog wanting to stay in his master's good graces. "Where am I? What do you want from me?" Those were probably some of the stupidest questions the girl could've uttered. But it went without saying that an explanation was in order.

It was soon left to a stand down of wills. Who's will would falter first? Who would cave first into either actions or conversation first? The silence between the two bitter enemies was foreboding. So thick that it could be cut with a Dinohumon's blade if could.

As if to end the unnerving moment, her D-Ban gave off a sudden vibration and sound. Lexi's eyes darted upward to her arms, but as they were still bound in chains there was no way she could move them to look at her device. But she soon turned back to the girl before her with a cold glare.

"What did you do to my D-Ban?!" Lexi demanded to know what that she bitch did to her while she was unconscious.

"You're chained to the wall." Bishop spoke with an idle drawl, but it was a mask for the fact that he was actually rather interested in what was to come. It was true that the Kotemon - strangely absent from the battle - had done the actual deed, but Lexi was a fine target anyway, and a light tamer to boot. "And doing a good imitation of a rather ugly wall decoration."

There wasn't any sense in telling her where they were, or what they had planned. She didn't need to know the former and the latter she would figure out soon enough. Besides, the more they kept Lexi off-balance, the more fun this would be.

Kyra crossed her arms, looking haughty and amused. The sight of Lexi hanging from the wall was extremely gratifying now that she was awake to squirm. "A gift from Insomnia," said Kyra. "Even if you could get to it, it wouldn't work anyway." It could have been a bluff, but it wasn't. Kyra's icy gaze was predatory, knowing its superiority and wondering how long it would take Lexi to start to crack. That would be when the sweetest satisfaction rolled in, when Lexi realized how screwed she was. No partners, no cards, no spirit... no hope.

Curious as to the chime, Kyra took advantage of the control the virus gave her over Lexi's d-ban. Namely, as much as Evil Spiral would give her over a hapless Guilmon. The menu changed colors, showing blue and orange once again.

On the main menu of the hijack interface, it showed that a new text message had appeared. Curious, Kyra opened it. After a moment she snorted with disgust at the sender and contents.
Sender: Zachary Knight wrote:Hello Lexi... how have you been? I found something interesting the other day. Meet me where we had our first kiss and I can show you ;)
Somehow or another it did not surprise Kyra that those two knew each other, or that they were evidently so close. The thought made her shiver, deeply bothersome for some reason.

By the look on Kyra's face from reading whatever it was on her D-Ban, Lexi knew she didn't like it. Chances are she wouldn't let her victim see exactly the kind of message she recieved. For all Lexi knew, it was her partners trying to reach out and contact her. Or perhaps even Cyrus or Zack!

"How about giving back my arm there?" Lexi attempted to take her arm attached to her D-Ban back, but given that Kyra's grip was likely stronger than her own, and the fact that she was in hardly any position to make demands, she wasn't going to get it back anytime soon.

But even then, she knew if someone was trying to send her a message then surely someone would come to help her. "Sure kidnapping me was a good idea? You forget what kind of friends I have." the girl snapped.

((Kyra didn't physically look at Lexi's d-ban. The virus disabling Lexi's d-ban also allows Kyra to control it remotely, including viewing Lexi's messages on Kyra's own d-ban. It's sort of like a nefarious version of remote desktop :EL OH EL:))

"Like Zack?" Kyra snorted in amusement and derision. "They'd have to find you first." They had taken a roundabout route back from the city, hopping from line to line along the Trailmon network, doubling back and other such tricks. Between that and the mansion's natural seclusion, Kyra was quite confident that Lexi's hope of rescue was a hollow one. "And since that isn't likely to happen..."

Bishop's tail flicked back and forth. The knives hadn't even come out yet, but already it had begun. A battle of wills, and an erosion of hope. He made a lurching move toward her, a quick step forward with his arms rising, looking like he was going to rush in and hit Lexi. He didn't move more than a step however, the quick move made to see if Lexi would flinch.

He chuckled quietly to himself before turning back to Kyra. She was still looking at her d-ban, apparently in thought. Glancing over, he saw the intercepted message. "Huh... that's interesting," he said, before lowering his voice so Lexi couldn't hear. "Going to reply?"

"Thinkin' about it..." was Kyra's equally quiet response. What was a good air-headed type reply?
Hi Zack ^_^ i'm doing good. I'd like to see you again, that sounds like a good place.
"No, dumber," advised Bishop, reading over Kyra's shoulder. Kyra erased the first message and started over.
hi zack ^_^ id like that. wat did u get 4 me?
Kyra sent that one way. Maybe she could even bluff her way through the conversation well enough to capture Zack too. Just as long as he didn't try and call. Good thing teenagers loved their text messages.

"So," said Kyra, lowering her d-ban. "Where was that Kotemon?" She hadn't forgotten that it had been Kodi that did the deed of blinding her, but he had been oddly absent from the training fields. "I'm quite happy punishing you of course, but I'm curious..."
