Kit raised an eyebrow and nodded slowly. "Got it then." Putting two fingers in her mouth, she let out a high-pitched whistle. Then she knelt carefully. "If we go with your strategy Dontae..., try to watch my back, kay?" She smiled at him and winked. "I can hit a bit rough, but if one of those swords gets me, I'm a goner you know? Your shovel could take a better hit than these" She gestured to her batons. "I'm counting on you guys."
"You," she informed the Dinohumon with a smile. "Talk too much."
Meanwhile, Paopao whipped her head around. She had heard that clear as day. "Kit!" Without hesitation, she bolted down the building steps, rushing back to her partner's side as quickly as physically possible.
"That's difficult to say," Artemis stated bluntly, "Dinohumon aren't normally lithe, but they still have agility. No telling if the corrpution changes that. I should still be quicker as long as I stay on my toes." She seemed uninterested in the specifics; if Dontae had to guess she was focused on keeping the champion digimon away from both of them. That would be disastrous: all three of them trying to gain the digimon's attention at the same time. But that didn't mean he was going to let either of them try and put themselves in danger to protect him. He wasn't the strongest fighter, but he wasn't going to be a coward. He stopped staring into space as he heard a stone smack the metal of his shovel.
"Something tells me that Bakura's behind this shower. He's not dying any time soon," Dontae half-muttered to himself before looking down at his partner, "Artemis, if you can stay a step ahead of him it might be best for you to distract him. At least until Paopao or someone else gets here Kit and I can jump in and out of the fray to chip away at him." He was sure that Gil might have needed more time to rest up, but that giant dinosaur form could come in handy. Digivolution was what it was called, right? Could Artemis do that? So far his own digivice had been really quiet, so he was going to go with "not yet". At this point he was even starting to hope that that weird guy with the crown would come out of the building to help, too.
"So what's it going to be, runt?" Dinohumon asked, reaching over his shoulder for his second cleaver, "Are you going to start it? Or should I just finish it? I'm getting pretty tired of you three whispering over there!"
"He's pretty confident with this; that's worse than the axes," Dontae deadpanned, "As long as Bakura stays still he should be fine; we could probably afford more muscle out here."
Kit glanced at Dontae. She spun a nightstick in one hand. "Well... yeah, I can. Probably... but..." She hesitated to do it. Her face tightened with dismay. "What about your friend? Will he last that long?" She steadied her footing and took a few deep breaths, trying to calm the adrenaline in her blood. If she had too much or it came all of a sudden, it might trip her up. She couldn't risk that with Dontae and Artemis' lives on the line. Not to mention if Carlos saw...
There's not a thing to worry about, she reminded herself. You're a small target and that's a big blade. It can cause a lot of damage, but it's unlikely he's as flexible. I just have to make sure he doesn't hit. She glanced at Dontae. Does he know that? "Artemis," she suddenly said, her voice oddly calm. "Can this guy move all that fast when he's attacking?" She wasn't too worried about him listening and interrupting. The Digimon, if he was as smart as he looked, would already know this. It wouldn't mean he could counter it though. Not that easily against more than one opponent.
Dontae raised his shovel in defense as he tried to size up the new digimon that appeared. Dinohumon, a champion digimon. It was obvious that dealing with this new digimon was going to be difficult. But how would that go? So far they had been ripping through the other corrupted easily, but this one appeared stronger and was wielding actual weapons.
The champion smirked as he pointed his cleaver at the male human. "So you're the little runt causing so much commotion, I take it? I was hoping for something with a little more bite," the Dinohumon sneered. Still, he walked slowly towards the three clustered together and ignored the rocks that struck his body. Artemis stamped her feet, getting ready to fight, but her tamer tentatively stood his ground.
"Happy to disappoint you," Dontae commented. He tightened his grip on his shovel. Perhaps the champion digimon hadn't seen Paopao, so that's why he wasn't focused on Kit. Or maybe he was after him for something else-- Looking down at Kit, the male did his best to address her without much hesitation. "Think you can call for Paopao from here? We'll need as much help as we can get for this one."
Hahaha, Paopao is a little bit less trusting than Kit.So she pretty much doesn't like any of them right now. Plus, unlike Kit, she is probably a lot more aware that the two of them are hiding something. Kit however, probably does not care if they are. xD
