I felt my wound throbbing all through the night so I struggled to sleep a wink. When the light of morning started to shine I begged for the night to be over but Malachi did not wake for another hour. I felt her paw stroke my hair back and I looked over to be met by the comforting sight of her eyes. "Had a bad night I see" she said.
"Not even you by my side helped to ease the pain" I said.
"Maybe this will cheer you up" she said before kissing me on the cheek but the pain in my side dulled the pleasure of the moment. Malachi saw that I was not enjoying her company as much so she then broke the kiss and sighed. "You're wounds are hurting aren't they?" she said as she looked at me in pity.
"It's agony" I said. "I can't even enjoy your company with it"
"I wish there was something I could do to heal you faster" she sighed. "I miss having my sweet partner's cheerfulness around"
"I know, but it has only been two nights" I said.
"Two nights too many" she replied. "I want you to get better again"
"I hope so too" I said as I stroked her cheek. "I miss the feeling I get when our lips touch"
"The doctor said a few days so we should maybe avoid this for now" she said. "That way when you do recover it will feel even better"
"What a good idea" I said.
As I sat up I heard the front doorbell ringing, I thought it could be the mail so I left the room to answer it. When I opened the door I was surprised to see a man whom I did not recognise. After I asked him who he was he then replied "I was wondering, is Sapphiremon here? My name is Luvini in case you were wondering" He sounded very South American.
"Sure she is here" I said. "Shall I say it's Luvini or just a friend?"
"Just a friend will work" he said as I let him in. I shouted upstairs to Sapphire that somebody was here to see her; I heard the bedroom door open and she started to walk down the stairs. As she was about to walk down the second flight of steps she stopped and starred at the man for a moment. Luvini held his arms out and said "It's good to see you again Sapphiremon"
Sapphire dashed down the stairs and ran into his arms; Luvini picked her up and swung her around before gently putting her back down onto her feet. "I haven't seen you in ages!" she said. "Where have you been?"
"I had to go back to Brazil to work" he said to her.
"I only wish Lucy was here" she said in a slightly sad way.
"I heard about that" he said. "I went around to see her but her sister told me what happened. I'm sorry"
"It's fine" Sapphire said. "At least you are here to visit me for a while"
Luvini then looked slightly bashful and said "Well, not quite"
"What do you mean?" she asked.
"Well how can I put this?" he pondered. "I was kicked out of my apartment so I was hoping to stay with Lucy but I was then told to come here. The problem is that this doesn't seem to be your house"
"Sadly no, I only live here" Sapphire said in a disappointed way."Kyle owns this house so he is the one to ask"
She then looked over to me and gave me a very endearing stare, I tried to look away but every time Malachi looked at me like that I could never resist. "Fine" I said. "He can stay" Sapphire's ears perked up before I said "On one condition"
"Anything" Luvini said.
"If I ever ask for help or need a job done you must do it as soon as you can" I said folding my arms.
"That sounds fair" he said.
"So he can stay?" Sapphire asked.
"Yes, he can stay" I said.
Sapphire turned around and hugged me tightly to say thank you. She took Luvini's hand in her paw and led him upstairs to her room, there was only one bed in the room so later that morning Sapphiremon told me she would sleep on the sofa for a while. I sat down next to her on the couch when she was making up a bed and I asked her "How did you meet Luvini then?"
"He was a friend of Lucy's" she said. "I have known him for many years but I haven't seen him for a long time"
"I see, is that why you are so happy to see him?" I asked.
"Not quite" she sighed.
"What other reason then?" I asked.
"Well if you must know. I feel the same way about him that Malachi feels about you" she said. "I have known him as a friend for so long I couldn't help but have a small crush on him after time. I was going to tell him but before I could find the courage to say anything he left and I never saw him again until now"
"Well, why don't you tell him how you feel?" I suggested.
"I can't. He has only been here a few hours" she sighed. "I don't want him to say he doesn't feel the same way about me this early"
"You will never know unless you ask him" I said as I put my hands on her shoulders "While the thought is in your mind you should say something to him"
At that moment Luvini walked downstairs and walked outside the glass doors to the pool. He sat down on one of the deck chairs and started to text somebody; I looked back at Sapphire and said "Tell him now while you can"
"But" she said but I interrupted and said "No buts, just tell him"
"Very well" she said and stood up. She took a deep breath and walked outside and stood next to Luvini. I couldn't hear what they were saying so I just watched, I saw him put his phone away and he stood up, he put his hands on her shoulders and nodded. The two then wrapped their arms around each other and hugged, I then heard Malachi say "Very well done"
Startled I turned to see her standing behind me with her arms crossed. "I'm very impressed by how you handled that" she said. I then looked back at the two and I saw Luvini kiss Sapphire on the cheek before walking back upstairs, she stood by the pool for a moment before walking inside. She sat down on the sofa rubbing her cheek and said "Thank you. I would never have had the courage to say anything to him"
"No problem. Why don't you two get to know each other a little better? I will make the bed for you" I offered.
"Good idea" she said and thanked me again before running upstairs after Luvini. I then looked at Malachi and jokingly said "Looks like we will need to buy another double bed" she giggled and said "Too true"
I then paused for a moment and said "I have an idea" I then took out my phone and started to dial a number. "Who are you calling?" Malachi asked. "A friend who can help me with something" I said as I started the call.
I then made my way upstairs to Sapphire's room; I knocked on the door before entering and when I did I smiled. Sapphiremon was sitting on the bed next to Luvini; they jumped when I walked in. I then said "Sorry to interrupt anything but I bring good news"
"What is it?" Sapphire asked.
"I have organised dinner tomorrow for you two" I said to them.
"Well how kind" Luvini said. "I have only been here for a few hours and you are making me feel right at home"
"I trust that you two are happy together" I said as I winked to Sapphire. She nodded and winked back before I left the room, Malachi was standing outside but for some reason she did not respond when I passed. I looked back and said "Are you feeling ok?"
She stood there for a moment before saying "Did you hear that?" She seemed scared for some reason. "Hear what?" I asked.
"That voice" she said.
I was about to ask what voice but then Malachi went silent, I stood and listened. I was horrified when I could actually hear a disembodied voice, it was very hissed and airy but I could make out that it was saying "I will find you. You can't hide. Time to die" As the voice stopped I stood there and looked at Malachi before saying "What the hell was that?!" she looked at me and said "Kyle..... I'm scared". She was shivering with fear.
"Why? What was that voice?" I said.
"I have heard stories about it" Sapphire said as she left her room. "Was that the voice I think it was?"
"It must be" Malachi told her. "If it is, we are in great danger"
"Why?" I asked.
"That voice was the only thing that every vixen Digimon fears. The voice of the Kaiju Digimon, the Digimon who despises our kind" she said. "I'm afraid we are not safe anymore"
"The Kaiju often possesses a powerful Digimon then forces it to Digivolve into its strongest form. It then will try to kill every vixen it finds until they are either all dead or its possessed body is destroyed" Sapphire explained.
"Why can't we have a quiet day for once?" I said. "What are we going to do Malachi?"
"I don't know" she said.
