Once the light from his D-ban died down completely and Taishi lowered his hand after he finished checking the new device out, he stood rooted in place. Then he rubbed his eyes, and looked around. The surroundings didn't change. It was still foreign; from the dried grassy river he'd done his regular roadwork at to this... city.
A really weird city with odd-shaped buildings, and strange small creatures running around. They didn't appear to be hostile, so Taishi didn't feel the need to run just yet. Run where? His logic reminded him. This was a place completely alien to him. And how the heck did I get here, anyway? He began to walk around the place, searching for some semblance from the world he knew.
He found it.
Standing in the middle of the weird city was an apartment complex, he recognized that much. It looked exactly like the complex he had back home. He decided to enter it.
Inside was no lobby, no receptionist like he'd expected. Instead, there was just a long, hollow hallway, with doors along it, which he supposed were the rooms.
So he just walked across the hallway and picked a door, listening a little for any signs of activity like he heard beyond the earlier doors. He found none, and reached out to open the unlocked door.
Once inside, he was just going to plop down in a nearby sofa when his 'watch' glowed again, albeit with a softer light.
"What now?" he literally yelled to the device. "You want to transport me after I've just settled in!?"
Just then, a Digitama shot out and clocked Taishi in the forehead, knocking him over.
The large egg rolled on the ground, beginning to crack as Taishi scurried away from it on his butt, goggle-eyed. "W--what the? I won't lose to some hatchling!"
A black head popped out of the egg, and seemed to eye him with yellow buttony eyes. It tilted his head. And came bounding over to Taishi.
"Bota! I'm your partner! I'm Botamon! You are?"
"Partner! Partner!" Botamon ignored the lack of name and began to dance around his partner... best as one could without legs or arms. "You and Botamon are gonna travel and adventure and battle together!"
"Wait... battle? Adventure? What are you talking about? Where am I?"
Botamon stopped bouncing around and tilted its head (and body) again, eyes widening. "This is the Digital World! You are a Chosen with the others. We're chosen to--"
"Wait, the others? Are you talking about other humans?" Taishi half-stood, his face brightening.
Botamon, sensing the lift of moods, started jumping around again. "Yes! We go meet them!"
Taishi laughed, happy that he probably wasn't alone. "Alright, let's walk around for a bit, buddy. You can guide me around here, can't you?" He scooped up Botamon into his arms and headed to the door. "By the way, my name is Taishi. Ryou Taishi. Nice to meet you, Botamon."
