Unusual chalk-markings appear on Takato's schoolyard, and the trouble comes from Calumon, who is merely looking for some fun. One night, Calumon and Guilmon sneak into the schoolyard, and a Digimon bio-emerges right in front of them.
Takato's schoolyard is found being a mass of chalk-drawings. Rumors about ghosts flow about, and Takato goes along. Asking Jeri about it, she says she saw something while she was in the infirmary. Bottles of medicine clanked as if by themselves, and upon investigation she saw the shadow of something small. It jumped at her, knocking her off her feet, which caused her to see footprints on the ceiling.
After school, Calumon watches kids playing soccer. When everyone leaves, he plays by himself, trying to call people back. Not succeeding, he breaks into the storage shed (breaking the lock) and is revealed to be the source of the other day's scribblings.
On Sunday, Takato goes back to school for duties, bringing Guilmon along. The two find Calumon, who immediately tries playing with Takato. They meet up with Henry at Guilmon's hideout. Henry and Takato suspect Calumon to be a stray Digimon who can't get home. The two think they should find him a Tamer, but all their suggestions are useless, including Kazu (for his reckless handling in the Digimon Card Game), Suzie (playing too much dress up with her dolls) and Jeri (who would be scared of Calumon, as well as scaring him back).
Guilmon was ordered to protect the smaller Calumon, but the latter convinced Guilmon to play. The two head out to school. Finding the shack triple-locked, Guilmon digs a tunnel to recover the marker. The two make a big drawing to lure everyone over and play, resulting in opening a Digital Field.
Vilemon, a small virus Digimon pops out, and is annoyed that Guilmon wants to protect him since he's so small. By the time Henry and Takato arrive they find Guilmon and Calumon on the run from Vilemon's attacks. Henry uses Terriermon for distraction, helping Calumon to safety. Takato struggles to find a suitable card, but the match is already decided as Rika and Renamon show up, quickly defeating their foe.
Takato is annoyed that Rika destroys living beings just for Data, and even warns her not to lay a hand on Calumon. Rika seems unresponsive as she walks away. Calumon also makes his exit, and Takato and Henry agree that he doesn't need a partner.

No Digivolutions in this episode.
- In the English dub, Guilmon's drawing on the school field was mostly airbrushed. This was due to the original drawing closely resembling a hexagram.
