The Frost Knight gave a low chuckle, almost inaudible at Alex's response. He had often offered similar words when he had still lived in his native land. All learned to fight, but many were far more relaxed and open than he. The presence of others became grating from time to time. Perhaps he could go find Alex and spar with him again when the girls were busy with their sewing nonsense. Perhaps I could get Hikari interested in crafting armor instead. Protective garments would be most useful to her, and even Bow would have a hard time denying it if I outlined my approach that way.

Rick on the other hand had wandered off, a brightly colored plastic shovel that he'd gotten from somewhere in hand. Several small holes littered the beach, the paler sands joined by darker particles still moist from the previous high tide. It seemed the pirate in him was on the loose again, or maybe he'd just gotten a bit of desperate inspiration from being in the presence of a treasure hunter.

"Frosty probably doesn't have much to add," Hikari grimaced slightly, realizing after the words were already out of her mouth that she had called the Frost Knight by his detested nickname. He didn't jump on her for it though, so after a moment she relaxed and what little tension she had flowed away.

"Unless you plan on crafting armor," The Frost Knight emerged somewhat from his shell. "It would be useful in your travels."

"Only tamers who fight all the time would want to wear armor," Bow said, folding her arms. Hikari wearing something to keep her safe was a pleasing thought to the Alraumon, but she didn't like the message it sent to people Hikari had just met. She was more concerned about Hikari's clothing being comfortable and something Hikari liked the look of.

"Hmmm," Hikari tapped her lip, deliberating what kind of project Lilly and she could tackle first when their opportunity arose. "Something relaxing... not too formal. A sundress, maybe?" Some accessories might be fun too. It was a wonderful feeling, having someone to share a hobby with. A sagging interest that there never seemed to be time for could become a passion to dive headlong into, and love every minute of it.

"Armor is more practical then the making of clothing" Alexander grunted, still looking out at the ocean as a blatant attempt to avoid the conversation. This was ridiculous, while the frost knight was someone he could get along with, the rest of these...fools, were far beneath his notice. He should take Venus and walk out now, before things got any more....ridiculous. He decided to give it another minute though, the soothing wave sounds helping soothe his irritation.

"That sounds wonderful hikari" lilly said, smiling happily and playing the design out in her head as well. "What colors shoudl we use? And what material? I can get almost any kind you like" she said, giggling at the prospect. "We could make the accessory's out of flowers if you like" she said, stroking her own flower petal dress. "I grow quite the rare breeds at home~"

As this discussion went on Crauss yawned, blinking sleepily. Her hobby always managed to make him sleepy...

Hikari gave a little snort of amusement at how many of the gathering the group had been turned off by the conversation about clothing. Out of the corner of her eye, she watched Rick continue to dig. The Hawkmon's shovel chipped against something and he pawed carefully at the sand. A yelp of pain escaped the ex-pirate, as he seemed to have found a grumpy crab the hard way.

"I think she would look lovely in teal," said Bow, smiling. "As for the material, just keep it light." She glanced at Hikari, who nodded in agreement.

Alex seemed to agree with the Frost Knight on the practicality of armor, but he doubted the others ever would. He wondered if he might be able to borrow some of Hikari's bits and commission armor for an emergency down the road. Many times, the outcome of a battle could be determined before it began, making preparation vital. Extra protection might save her on a rainy day...

"Some accessories would be cute!" The excitement purred strongly in her chest, and she couldn't wait to have a chance to start working on the dress together with Lilly. Maybe Hikari would even have some time to make a few articles ahead of time to then show off. "We could make something for you too."

"I like the color teal myself" Lilly said, brightening up more and more as the conversation moved on. "Maybe with different color trims? And patters inlaid into the fabric?" she asked, wings fluttering a slight bit from excitement. "Oh Hikari we better stop talking about this or I might to cartweels in the air" the flower maiden giggled, a blush coloring her face at the thought. "I cant help it though, I'm genuinely excited~" She blushed when she talked about making a dress for her. "That would be lovely Hikari~"

Crauss smiled over at her, then looked skyward. "Hmmm...We need to go soon" he said, looking at the position of the sun. "Not being rude or anything, but when the sun sets where I live, some rather unpleasant folk come out, so it's best to try and avoid them" he said, smiling apologetically. "Not that Lilly or I cant match them in combat, but it seems better if we just avoid them outright."

Lilly looked back at Crauss, her smile fading into a sad frown. She sighed, nodding and turned back to Hikari. "im so sorry Hikari....i really wanted to spend as much time as I could with you.." she said, looking almost teary as she said this. She wasn't very good with goodbyes. "I'll definitely come to digital city very soon!"

Venus frowned a bit as well. The pretty Lillymon leaving was something to get a bit down at. She had fallen into an almost lazy feeling while Hikari petted her. It wasn't a bad feeling to say the least, just un natural to her. "Maybe I'll come by too?" she offered quietly, blushing at her own desire to be included in the group.

Hikari was happier than she'd been in a long time at the prospect of sharing this project with someone so clearly excited. Their conversation, alas, seemed to good to last. She couldn't blame Crauss though, if the troublemakers around the castle were that tough. "Aw..." But it didn't bother her too much, knowing what would be waiting next time they met, and that it would be soon. She'd have to make sure they were ready and stuff, with plenty of fabric and stuff for accessories and things.

"I look forward to seeing you again, Lilly," she got up and hugged the Lilymon, enjoying the fairy's flowery scent. It would be the greatest if okaa-san could evolve into something like this. "You're welcome to join us in the city, Venus," she gave the V-mon a warm smile, but her thoughts soured slightly Assuming we can get our cold-fish partners off our backs for an afternoon.

Bow smiled, find Lilly a likable person and thinking her a good influence on Hikari. It was far better than her getting dragged off to train by the Frost Knight, or falling in with some of the more questionable tamers Hikari had met. "Have a safe journey, you two," Bow curtseyed, smiling gently as she gave Crauss and Lilly a wave of farewell.

"Bye," said Rick, looking over. "Hopefully you don't get mugged on the way back!" His tone was singsong, but his Numemon-eating grin almost conveyed it might have been intended to jinx them.

The Frost Knight gave them a curt nod. While he understood the value of 'downtime' for Hikari, it would still cut into time for martial readiness. While his ability to evolve to Perfect as he once could was a good accomplishment, he knew he would have to get stronger in order to safeguard Hikari. And developing her own strength would not hurt. Perhaps take her to train in the spirit some time...

The lillymon blushed a bit when the girl hugged her, a gesture she didn't quite expect. Guess the tutelage of a hardened warrior like Frost Knight hadn't changed her completely yet. She hugged the girl back, smiling softly as affection welled up inside of her at the gesture. She'd definitely have to come and visit soon. That dress was looking prettier by the minute as she thought of it. "I cant wait to see you again Hikari"

Crauss arched his eyebrow at the hawkmon, wondering if eh actually wished for fortune to befall them in their travels. How rude. He expected the curtness of the digimon and human however, he didn't see them very well as people persons. Oh well, maybe they'd open up in time, maybe even drop by for a nice visit. That would be nice. But sadly, now it was time to leave. 'I bid you all a fond farewell" he said, bowing deeply for them all. "Lilly, let us away"

The lillymon nodded, rising up to her feet. She curtseyed and smiled at the group, turning and setting out with Crauss. Not a totally uneventful day was it?

"We should leave as well, we've wasted enough time here as is" Alex said, not looking back at his partner as he starred out to sea.

The V-mon turned, not wanting to go, but knowing that they'd have to leave sooner or later. She turned to Hikari and hug her. "I hope we meet again Hikari..."

"Me too," Hikari hugged back and graced Venus with a smile before letting her depart. Beneath the scales, Hikari saw in her someone like a few she had known in school. A kind but isolated spirit, just needing someone to smile when they saw them, to know that their being mattered to someone. She looked at Alex and wanted to say something to him, remind him to treat Venus well, but her courage failed her as she gazed upon the man's massive muscular frame.

Bow waved farewell to Venus as well. She had a feeling that the little V-mon would be something quite spectacular once she got older. "Well," Bow said, turning to Hikari with a smile. "Wasn't that fun? I never would've expected to run into some friendly faces out here on the beach like this."

"Mm!" To Hikari, it had come as a very happy surprise. Any day that involved making friends instead of fighting battles was good in her book, and she was excited enough for the prospect of having a sewing buddy that she now wanted to have something ready to show off when Lilly arrived.

Once their guests had gone, Hikari stifled a yawn behind one hand. With the soft hum of the surf, and the gentle warmth of the sun, it felt like a really good time for a nap. Bow seemed to see her slumping, however. "Ah-ah," the Alraumon's voice was firm but kind. "You don't want to get sunburned falling asleep on the beach. That wouldn't feel very good, now would it?"

"A shame ye didn't think to bring an umbrella, eh?" Rick teased, still poking around the sand in an apparent search for treasure.

"Next time we will," Bow gave Hikari's shoulder a gentle squeeze. "If you're tired, we can head home. It's just a short ride back to the coast, after all, so we can come again another day."

Hikari looked at Bow, an uncertain look wavering in her eyes. The girl was reluctant to leave, fearing that something might get in the way of them coming back. I'm here now, I should enjoy it. But the warmth of Bow's smile melted away the fear and uncertainty, and Hikari knew that she could visit again before too much longer.

As the rest of the group packed up, the Frost Knight stared wistfully out to sea. He'd spent more time out on the oceans than on dry land for many months, and a part of him still found solid, stationary ground rather unsettling. He bounced heavily around, his going slow in the sand before Hikari scooped him up.

"Ready to go, Frost Knight?"

"Ready," rumbled the Shakomon after a moment, surprised that for once she had called him by his proper name.

Venus gave the girl a quick hug, then got up, walking over to her tamer. She gave the girl a glance over her shoulder, a sad frown coloring the v-mons face as she looked, wondering if she'd ever see the girl again after this. Her train of thought was cut short by the noise of her tamer walking away, moving forwards from the direction they came, continuing along the coast like before. Not even giving the v-mon so much as a sideways glance, keeping his stoic silence.

Venus sighed, running to catch up to him, walking by his side silently. Shed see Hikari again, one way or another, shed see her again. If she had to find her in the frigid north, or the fierce heat of the south, shed find her. After all, its not that often you make make a friend like Hikari. Shed remember her for as long as she would live...
