This is the last story I had to butcher on my account in order to fit their terms of service.  While I meant to get this up here the first few days of January, I only managed to remember and do so today, so I'm incredibly sorry for those who have been waiting for it.  To those who haven't read it on the other site first, it will stop at what would appear to be a definite "end," but it does infact have a couple more acts to still go through.  It will take a while to get them up, though, for I am currently working on a book and have placed all of my fanfictions on Hiatus.

One last note, this story was first published starting March 10, 2010, so some of these chapters are almost four years old.  My writing style has changed over the years (and gotten quite a bit better) so some of the first chapters sound a bit corny (to me).

Prologue: The Cave

The two boys walked the woods near their summer camp.  Sad expressions touched faces that had yet to see the turn of a 12th year.  Too sad, as if they had lost a dear friend.  And, in a way, they had.

“I miss them…” the brunette said, breaking the silence and drawing the blonde-haired boy’s attention.

“I miss them, too,” he replied, crystalline blue eyes studying his friend’s slightly tan face.  “We all miss them.  I bet they miss us, too.”

“That doesn’t help,” the other boy shot, but no malice was in his voice.  Chocolate eyes locked with oceanic ones, stopping both parties.

"I’m meaning they won’t forget us, Tai,” the blonde stated, slightly annoyed at his friend’s idiocy.  “They will always care for us, as we care for them, so we are never really apart.”

“Oh…” the boy called Tai muttered, breaking their stare by looking at the ground.  After scuffing his shoe in the dirt for a moment, he looked up, a small grin on his face.  “Thanks, Matt.”

Matt nodded—he never smiled—and re-initiated their walk.  It had been 2 months since they had returned from the digital world, and this would be their last visit to this place before school started.

“But, you know,” Tai grinned ridiculously, “I never expected you to cheer me up, Matt.”

The offended male glared at his friend.  “What’s that supposed to mean?” Matt asked sharply.

“I just didn’t expect it,” the brunette repeated disarmingly.  Matt visible relaxed a bit.

"Well, it’s just that it’s weird when someone is more down than I am,” he defended, linking his hands behind his head.

"Yeah, if you insist,” Tai chuckled.

“I do!” the blonde yelled, turning on the brunette only to see a strange expression on the tanned face.  Following the other’s gaze, he saw what had stopped his companion.  A dark cave could be seen through the loose net of trees, boulders strewn about the entrance.

"What do you think…?” Tai asked, his voice trailing off.

“Only one way to find out,” his comrade replied, already descending the slight slope that led to the clearing around the cave.
