Lucas could only hope that the rest of the tamers had gotten away from the battlefield, since nobody had accepted his offer to fly with him to Primary Village. It meant they were all on their own, which saddened Lucas a little, since many of the tamers were young, and seemed rather inexperienced with the entire war versus Insomnia. He also felt disappointed, since he had nobody to share his knowledge with, making the Librarian effectively useless. Battle wasn't the place to spread what he knew, but with companions by his side, how could he educate them about what truly happened? He doubted any of them knew what was going on, other than the fact that a giant BlackWarGreymon attacked the park, and their instinctual response was to save it. Some of them, he reasoned, might be aware of Insomnia's existence, but he had her history, and knew she wasn't really like this, that if he could separate the virus that plagued her, she'd be normal again.
Thunderbirdmon seemed to pick up on his anxiety, because the larger bird spoke out, surprising Lucas with the sudden deepness of his voice that Falcomon just didn't have. The rumbling sound seemed more like an aged man than a young hatchling in a temporary form. "Relax, Lucas. You're hurting my horn. You don't have to be so apprehensive. We'll be useful before long. We just have to take less of the hero route in battle. You came in on a shining horse expecting to run the day, and they just don't know you well enough yet. Make a name for yourself, then they'll listen to all you've got to say. When they can hear of this mysterious Falcomon Tamer with golden hair and blue eyes that pierce the heavens from OTHER digimon, then you'll have more of an audience than you want." The bird seemed wiser in this form, comforting Lucas a great deal.
"Hm. I guess you are right. I did expect a bit much from my first encounter with ANY humans in the Digital World. I guess I was a bit over-zealous. I guess I'll just take my time. They'll come to me eventually, and until then, I'm sure Gertrude would love to hear about that fight, and everything else we've been up to. So let's go!" Lucas said, and Thunderbirdmon banked left, heading towards the city of small digi-eggs, intent on following Lucas's map that relayed where all of their previous contacts were. It last showed Gertrude in Primary Village, so that is where they were going...
Oh no it wasn't. Not in the least. Sometimes a stray Garudamon not watching where it's going can knock a Thunderbirdmon and it's traveler out of the sky and into the forest.
