Ken is sleeping in his bed. His parents are worried because all he does is sleep since he returned. Ken wants things to go back to the way they were. He dreams about when he was younger and his older brother Sam helped him blow bubbles. Ken always did it better because of how much gentler he was. All the neighbors are impressed with Sam though because he is very smart. Sam gets all the praise while Ken is ignored. Ken wished Sam disappeared. One night a digivice came out of Samís computer. Sam told Ken to stay away from it and put it in his drawer. When Sam was away Ken picked up the digivice and entered the computer and the digital world with it. When Sam returned he was upset with Ken for having broken his trust.

Sam has an accident and dies. Ken finds an email on Samís computer addressed to him. The email says that Ken now must bear the burden of destiny for both Sam and Ken. Ken must become even smarter than Sam. If the burden becomes too great the other world can set Ken free. The email goes on to tell him to use the digivice. Ken arrives back in the digital world.
