What's in Dreams
September 3rd, 2001
In my dreams I'll always see you soar above the sky.
In my heart they'll always be a place for you for all my life.
I'll keep a part of you with me
And everywhere I am, there you'll be...
"Koneko, why did you leave me?" Davis mumbled, staring at a
picture of them together, sitting under a cherry blossom tree, "Why
did you leave me alone?" his voice cracked as yet more tears streamed
down his face. He sat there for a long time, listening the the
melancholie song, the words had never been so appropriate.
Maybe it was fate, Davis thought to himself sadly. It had
been the last song they had ever danced to together. Finally, exhaustion
took over, and Davis curled up on his bed and went to sleep.
"Oh Davis," Koneko moaned, "I'm so sorry, this isn't fair."
She was again watching him in the pond. He looked terrible. He
had gotten so thin, his hair was getting long, and it was unkempt.
He hadn't bothered shaving in a while either. He was wasting
away. Koneko was getting really anxious about him. "We
have to do something," she said suddenly, getting up and looking at
Glynna and Mishka a few feet away, "we have to bring him here. Now."
Glynna looked at her sadly, shaking her head, "I'm sorry, but
I don't know how."
"Then ask the angelicae,"she spat out caustically.
Glynna looked at Mishka with uncertainty. Koneko thought
that she even saw a hint a fear in her eyes. What could she
be afraid of? She's spoken to the angelicae before? What's her
problem now? Koneko knew that she was being unsympathetic,
but she couldn't help it, she was so worried about Davis.
Mishka took up Glynn's hand and nodded. The other girl
simply sighed and nodded at Koneko. Koneko thought her heart would
burst, she was so grateful. The couple walked into the circle.
Glynna was terrified, remembering how sick she had gotten every other time
she had let the angelicae take over her body. What Koneko
didn't understand was that they wouldn't tell Glynna-vyre how to bring
Davis to their world, they would do it for her, through her.
Glynna braced herself and began the incantation.
"Quantum in me est potestas tenebras et lumen unum per meum
fient. Alia iactas est. Quantum in me est tenebras ignavos spiritus,"
her body was surrounded by a brilliant white light, she couldn't see
anything outside of it. Koneko stood rooted in place, this wasn't
what she had had in mind. She thought that Glynna, or Mishka, could
just ask how to do something and then they could do it. She had
not realized the concequences of having such power. Suddenly
the glowing stopped and when Koneko could see again, she saw that Glynna-vyre
was now lying on the ground in the circle. Mishka approached and gently
helped her to stand. Koneko was stunned when she looked at Glynna-vyre's
eyes. This isn't Glynna anymore, she realized in shock.
She watched as Glynna-vyre approached the pond where she had been watching
Davis earlier. She knew that he was still asleep. She knew
that he could see her now too. But she also knew that he did
"Vides, Videt, Video. Appropinquae nihil sed uno." Koneko
was knocked on her ass by the force of the energy unleashed by Glynna-vyre.
When she stood up she saw that Glynna had collapsed again. Mishka
quickly went and picked her up and began walking towards the entrance
of the garden. When Glynna was gone, Koneko noticed another body lying
on the ground.
"Davis!" she cried, running towards him.
"Know this," Mishka said to her as he passed by, "this was
not Destiny's plan, and it will not be happy."
Koneko harldy heard him as she picked up Davis' head in her
arms, rocking back and forth, tears streaming down her face.
"Koneko?" he asked in confusion, opening his eyes, "am I sill
dreaming ?" His eyes opened wider as he looked at the girl, really
looked, for the first time. He sat up, jerking back away from
her. Koneko was hurt, but then she followed his line of vision.
She nodded at him and smiled, as he slowly, almost tentatively reached
out to touch her face. Finding her solid, next he reached out for her
wings, gasping when they did not disappear like all good hallucinations
should. "How--Who--what" he stuttered out, unable to comprehend.
"Remember what Winter said, about the world of Glynna and Mishka
being real. Well this is where I came after I died. I don't
know if this is supposed to be heaven. I don't think so, so I
don't even know if I'm really dead. I don't really understand
everything yet. Glynna has been teaching me the ancient magicks,
the wings are part of that magick," she smiled sheepishly, "I kinda
like them." Davis just sat there, rooted
in place. Suddenly he wrapped his arms around her, holding her
tightly to him, sobs racking his body. Koneko hugged him back just
a tightly, crying just as hard. They sat there, like that for
a long time. Neither wanted to let go of the other for fear that they might
be separated again.
Suddenly, they heard someone enter the garden. Koneko
looked up expecting to see Mishka and Glynna returning, but was startled
to see the Watcher enter with Winter. Neither of them looked
very happy, either.
"You shouldn't have come here," Winter said quietly to Davis.
"It was not your time yet."
"I brought him here," Koneko explained to the girl.
"No. You didn't," the Watcher said in his great voice, "You
asked the angelicae to do it for you, and now Glynna-vyre suffers
"What do you mean, suffers?" she asked in confusion.
"Exactly what he said," Winter explained, her voice edged with
annoyance, "Do you think that such power as that comes without a price.
No, you know that there are consequences," Winter sighed, "but what is done
"We will teach him the magicks?" Koneko asked, relieved that
Winter was willing to let this go.
"No we won't, he cannot learn the magicks," the Watcher said, "already
the change has been corrupted by this action, teaching him the magicks
will only make it worse. He has his crest, and when the others come,
at the correct time, their combined crests will do as Destiny
has bid them too."
Koneko was a bit taken aback by the Watcher's brusqueness,
but she understood. She did not, however, regret having brought
Davis there. She never would.
"We've lost control here."
"No we haven't, not yet."
"How can you still believe that? The dreamers are beginning
to arrive before the time, they already know secrets that they should
not, and the chosen are beginning to do some unexpected things," the
Winter just shook her head. "Do you really believe that
all this would be happening if Destiny didn't want it too? I'm
beginning to think that we've been looking at this in entirely the
wrong way. We aren't at war with Destiny," now it was Winter's
turn to sigh. "How do we know that Destiny has anything to do
with what's happening at all?"
The Watcher was immediatly concerned. How can she
be doubting herself? Doubting us, doubting everything?
"It's not like you to express doubt like this," he finally
The little girl just shrugged her shoulders and shook her head,
"I don't understand what's going on anymore. I thought I did,
but there is more going on than I thought. The dreamers are as prepared
as I could make them, but this whole thing with Koneko and Davis was
unexpected. Sometime's I wonder if we're not on the wrong side.
Think about it. How do we justify what we're doing here?
Playing people against and for each other depending on what Destiny
bids us," she snorted derisively, "I'm beginning to think that anything
resembling an omnipotent being, be it Destiny or not, abandoned us a long
time ago and let us do as we would, revelling in the power that we
thought we possesed." The Watcher didn't know what to
say. A lot of what Winter said made sense, but then again, logic
had a way about it that could make sense out of just about anything.
That was it's power, and it's weakness. He sighed, just whose
side are we on?
In the shadows of an alleyway stood a figure.
She stood alone and still for quite some time. After a while,
another figure came to join her in the darkness.
"It's not about whose side your on anymore," she said to the
other one quietly.
"No, it's not. None of that matters. Even the change
doesn't matter anymore. It is Destiny's way, therefore it cannot
be corrupted, just as Glynna-vyre's pureness cannot be corrupted.
Mishka will be there for her, we don't need to worry about that anymore.
Koneko and Davis are together again now too," he answered just as quietly.
The girl nodded, " I know. I saw them in the Dreams.
There is confusion with the Watcher and the child. They are lost.
We have to stop the other. He doesn't belong in this. He prevents
the natural order."
"Hello Angemon, Agewomon, it's been a while," Kari nodded at
the two new figures entering the alley way.
"It's time to go, Kari," Angewomon said.
T.K. and Kari nodded, "Let's go."
Together, the four left the alley and walked down to the deserted
beach. Once there, Kari walked towards the water line.
"Here I am!" she shouted to the waves, "You wanted me before!
So come and get me!"
T.K. shivered as a cold wind blew right through him.
He could feel eyes watching him, hundreds of them. Then he could
hear the voices, so many voices, overlapping, one over the other, jumbling
into incomprehensibility. The two digimon and T.K. walked closer
to where Kari was now standing ankle deep in the ocean.
"They're coming for us now," she said, her voice trembling
slightly with fear. She had hoped she would never have to return
to this place. But he had to be stopped.
"Welcome back, Kari," a cold voice slithered in the darkness,
"Welcome back to the Dark Ocean."
