Chapter 9 A Knight is….
Meanwhile in the middle of the forest zone…
“Ugh…” I moan “are we almost there yet?”
“Not quite yet-” Daomon states “hold up!”
“What’s wrong buddy?” I ask concerned as I look around
“I don’t know but I have a bad fe-” He starts before knocking both of us to the ground.
“Wha!” I shout as I hit the ground “What was that for!” I shout as I see a black dragon fly out from the bushes
“Okay I’m not sure who you are, or what you want but I’ve had enough crap for today!” I shout out in anger ‘Daomon Let’s Just digivolve kick this fool’s butt and get going!” I state as a Key formed in my hand.
“Got it” Daomon replies as a blue aura envelops him.
And within an instant the young dinosaur grows and changes posture into a theropod with a bladed tail and visor.
“Daomon Digivolve too…” I holler while looking down at my digivice “Kendramon!”
I stood there next to my partner face to face with a monster now that I had a good look at the monster it seemed to be straight out of nightmares, the dragon had two sets of tattered black bat wings, crimson red claws, and four blood red eyes.
“Hmmm….” It growled “young nephilim… So… Hungry!” It grumbled as it just stood there staring at Kendramon and I.
“What is you want!?” I ask
“Answer me!” I demand as my patience is thinning
“What... I... want is… to Kill you.” It Threatens with a look of pure rage
“M-M-Me?,”I stuttered as I took a step back.
“yes...You!” the dragon shouts as it starts to take off into the air “red eye” I bellows as I feel like I can’t move.
What is going on...my arms I can’t move them… I thought to myself
“K-k-Kendramon” I muttered as I notice he’s fallen to the ground and is unable to get up.
As I barely spat out my words I saw a knight that bore that of a crimson cape the knight was massive, I barely came up to the middle of the shin.
Is that what I think that is?
“Devidramon!” the knight shouted as he revealed his lance “for breaking holy law I must kill you!”
As He stated that he jumped into the air his lance started to glow a golden color
“Holy Law hasn’t been in effect, ever since the Demon Lords took control of the digital world!” He countered
“Spiral Saver” he shouted as his body was enveloped in tornado of fire and pierce Devidramon’s body.
“Tha-” I start
“No need to thank me I was just doing my job…” The knight stated as he started to walk off.
“Wait! I need to ask you something?”
“Hmm what is it?” he responded
“Are you the crimson knight?”
“Why yes, but… I haven’t been called that in a long time,” He chuckled “know if that’s all I must be off…”
“Wait one more question…” I ask. “If it’s okay with you I would like an apprenticeship?”
“Know why would a young man like you want me a washed up royal knight like me, to train you?” He responded
“b-Because I... No we want to save the digital world from Beelzemon’s tyranny!” I state as I look directly into his eyes.
“Ha… now I know you’re crazy!” he mocked.
“Why, do you say that!” I shout.
“Because, Beelzemon is the least of your worries if you want to save the digital world…” he explains, as Kendramon began to glow and shrink back into Daomon.
“Wha- what do you mean by the least of our worries?” I add.
“Well for me to explain I must know… do you trust me?” He asks as he kneels down to my level
“What do you me do I trust you, you just saved my life?, I mean, I may know almost nothing about you but you haven’t done anything to make me not…” I answer.
“Well then young nephilim let me take you to my home and I will tell you a story…” he states as he sets Daomon and I on his shoulders.
“So where are we going?” I ask out loud.
“Well, we will be heading to the ruins of Camelot…” he states.
“Hey can I ask for your name?” I add
“Oh yes of course!” he exclaims “You may call me Gallantmon…”
“Well than ,Gallantmon my name is Gabriel, like the angel, and on your other shoulder is my partner Daomon!” I explain.
“It’s nice to meet the two of you, now hang on it’s gonna be bumpy.” Gallantmon stated as he started running. It was unlike anything I’ve ever seen, he left a trail of broken branches and fire in his wake.
After five hours we finally made it to the waste zone, there was scraps of wood and stone everywhere buildings, as I jumped off of Gallantmon’s shoulder.
“What happened here?” I question as a shiver goes up my back “what was so powerful that it could tear apart an entire city?!” I shout as I move my foot to uncover a skull.
“The sins happened here?” Gallantmon sighed.
“The sins?” I ask
“Yes, the sins are also known as the seven great demon lords.” Gallantmon states “ they are seven mega level digimon that represent the seven deadly sins.”
“Oh I know those, aren’t they lust, gluttony, wrath, envy, sloth, greed, and pride.” I explain
“Exactly, now remember when I told you Beelzemon is the least of your worries,” He adds.
“Well… he’s a sin, and if you want to free the digital world then you’re gonna, either need an army, or extremely powerful allies.” Gallantmon states.
“Well… I do have three other friends who I hope have found help…” I reply
“Hmm… well then good luck to them then… But anyway we need to get to work so you can be ready.”
“Okay then let's go!” I shout as I jump up into the air with my fist raised.
Later that night I was sitting next to a crumbling wall looking into the night sky with Daomon sitting beside me as I heard the clanging of heavy armor.
“Hey Gallantmon…” I greet without turning my head.
“How did you know it was me?” He asked.
“Well… Daomon, you, and I are the only ones here.” I explain as Gallantmon kneels down
“Yah know that’s not entirely true,” He begins.
“What do you mean by that?” I ask.
“Well, you see the stars, right?” He begins.
“yeah…Why?” I ask again.
“All those stars are the souls of legendary warriors lost long ago,” He explains “so in a way, the three of us are never alone.”
Hmm… I thought to myself, “well I guess I’m going to be night…” I replied as rolled over and try to sleep but I couldn’t even get a wink of sleep.
The next day.
“Hey, get up…” Gallantmon ordered as I rolled over.
“Five more minutes…” I groan.
“No get up now!” Gallantmon ordered.
“Ugh… Fine.” I groan again as I slowly stand on my feet, “alright I’m up what now?” I asked.
“We start training…” Gallantmon replied, as he crouched down and held out his hand, “here’s your digivice.”
“Okay- wait did you take my digivice while I slept?!” I questioned as I looked directly into Gallantmon’s eyes.
“Yes, I needed to know what your highest rank you have achieved…” Gallantmon explained, “you have only achieved Champion, am I correct?”
“Is that what that’s called?” I asked as I looked down at my Digivice.
“Yes there are technically five stages, which include, intraining, Rookie, Champion, Ultimate, and Mega, but your digimon stay in Rookie most of the time.” Gallantmon explained.
“Please explain, about Beelzemon?” I added.
“Beelzemon is the demon lord of Gluttony, he’s also a mega level Digimon, along with six others…” Gallantmon informed, “Beelzemon is one of seven mega level digimon that represent the seven deadly sins.”
“So lemme guess Daomon and I have to match their level even to have a hope of trying to beat them right?” I inquired.
“Exactly now I can’t get you to mega level but I can help you reach ultimate…” Gallantmon added, “so let’s get down to business”
“Alrighty then…” I reply as Gallantmon walks away, “so what should I do first?”
“Well first things first, you need to find your next key,” Gallantmon pointed out “then we will figure the next step later, but since we have no Idea where to start looking let’s do some training, Daomon!” he shouted.
“Yes!” Daomon said as he jumped to attention.
“Digivolve into Kendramon…” Gallantmon ordered.
“Okay then…” I replied as I held my digivice up and the blue key appeared in my left hand, “Evolution matrix activate, champion lock open!!” I shout as Daomon morphed from the small raptor to a large theropod.
“Alright Kendramon, I want you to attack me with all you have…” Gallantmon instructed, “I’m not going to go all out so you don’t have to worry about hurting me, but remember Beelzemon and the other sins, won’t go easy on you…”
“Alright…” Kendramon shouted as he charged at the crimson knight, “chaos burst!” Kendramon was enveloped in a blue aura, Gallantmon pulled up his shield stopping Kendramon in his tracks.
“Hmph pathetic, If you want a chance against them even in your ultimate level you're gonna have to change your tactics…” Gallantmon Instructed “Royal Saber!” Gallantmon shouted as he struck Kendramon with his lance.
“ah!” Kendramon shouted in pain as he staggered backwards, but as he regained his footing he shouted “Dragon’s Fire!” fire then spewed from his mouth heating the metal on Gallantmon’s armor, Kendramon then swung his tail blade at the heated armor breaking it.
“Gah!” Gallantmon cried in pain.
Kendramon then jumped into the air and spun as his tail blade began to shine and grow, “Excalibur's wrath!” Kendramon shouted as the large blade came crashing down upon Gallantmon, but before the blade made contact with Gallantmon’s helmet, he quickly threw his shield up, when the two objects made contact a large wave of energy went across the area knocking over some nearby rubble. Kendramon returned to the ground but was quickly knocked on the floor by Gallantmon. Kendramon then stood up and sent a barrage of swings at Gallantmon.
“Kendramon, enough!” Gallantmon shouted as he threw Kendramon back onto the ground “it’s over!”
Kendramon tried to stand but Gallantmon kept him pinned with his lance “stay down…”
