Jei shielded his eye, turning his head slightly to keep the light from shining directly onto his face. A steady beam of light was piercing the dark sphere, running from the ground high up into the sky where the virus' dark cloud loomed over the mangled remains of the digital world.
"That's it" Dinohymon said looking straight into the blinding gaze, "that's it's power source. Everything in the digital world that the virus has destroyed is running through that data stream, being corrupted and used as food to make it stronger".
Jei was unsure of what he felt. Afraid? Determined? Maybe a good mixture of both. The stakes of the situation were beginning to sink in like a jagged piece of glass breaking skin. All of the technical malfunctions in the real world were linked to the virus' destruction of the digital world. If one ceases to exist, the other would be thrown into chaos.
"She's in there, isn't she" Jei said stepping forward, "She's still alive, I can feel it".
A cold shadow falling across the environment caught Jei off guard, causing him to spin on his heels and nearly trip over the warped landscape.
"What the hell!?" Jei exclaimed looking all around.
"Oh look darling!" came a shrill female voice, "It's our little playmates! It seems we are one short this time".
"Oh crap" Jei said with a sudden recognision, "It's them...".
He turned back towards the mountain and saw two tall dark figures blocking out the light from the data stream, their shadows cast over limbo island, obscuring everything around it like a black hole from which no light could escape.
"How rude of you to just run out on us Jeishita!" LadyDevimon cackled, "If you wanted to play tag you should have just said so!".
In an instant, both of the figures on the mountain lept into the sky and torpedoed straight towards them.
"Tag!" LadyDevimon shrieked as she tackled Dinohymon into the air and pinned him against a twisted rock face, "you're it!".
