A Baby Tails StoryThe sun rose and shined through the window of Tails' room. He was laying in his crib, sucking his thumb in his sleep. He opened his eyes and began to cry for someone to come get him.
Vanilla came into the room and picked him up. "There, there, sweetie, don't cry." She patted him on the back and carried him to the living room. She made him a bottle and sat on the couch, holding him as he sucked it.
Cream came downstairs and sat next to her mother. "How is he?" She asked. "He's just fine." Said Vanilla. "Hopefully he'll turn back to normal any day now."
About a week ago, Tails had been working on an age device. But it had malfunctioned and i

Before I knew what was going on, arrows flew in all directions, and people starting hacking at each other. Ducking under the bar, I grabbed Gillian, and we crawled randomly towards the bar gate. I could hear music drifting over the fighting.
"And the battle has started,
people are dying,
maybe I should pack
and stop rhyming "
"Oh no you don't!" the guard with the shiny sword jumped over the gate, swinging the sword wildly at us.
Before he could get close, though, the musician smashed a glass bottle onto his helmet, screaming out more lyrics:
"I've fought ducks
and cows and pigs and sheeps

Before I could say anything, someone grabbed me from behind.
"HELLO! And welcome to the Greene Dragon Tavern!" A strange man in a white overcoat, with a strange smile offered his hand to me. I gingerly took it, and he shook roughly.
"You don't seem to be around these parts! Tell me where you're from!"
"Um," I stammered, "I live around."
"Ah," he replied. "I see. You live off the land, like the farmers! Well, welcome!"
"Hey, Gimi," Gillian strolled back to us, "could you grab us a seat? For three."
"Sure! I'm Gimiglider, by the way, if this dashing lady hasn't introduced me yet," Gimiglider grinned pointedly at Gillian, who turned her h

"END THIS INSANITY!"
We all looked at the man in the front. He had his golden sword up to Cobble's cage.
"Anyone makes one more move, and I kill the creeper!"
"DO IT!" A skeleton said, and fifty arrows pierced its skull, all from fellow skeletons.
"No." One of the talking creepers ordered. "We need him to finissssssssh the ritual!"
"Tell your undead friends to leave," Ralph pressed the blade against Cobble's throat, "or I will kill him."
"NO!" I yelled, and limped towards him. Ralph cackled in a sinister voice.
"You're not in any shape to fight me, fool," he snickered.
"But I AM!" A voice shouted from above.

At first, I thought it was the creeper in my head that exploded, but as I looked around, I found that the back wall of the jail cell was blasted open.
"What was that?" One of the guards started to walk in the direction of the cell. A creeper showed up at the entrance of the hole, wearing a yellow scarf.
When the guard got to the window, the creeper hissed menacingly at him.
"AHH!!!!" The guard screamed, and ran away.
With the guard gone, the creeper turned its attention to me.
"Get behind me!" Kitty shouted. I raised my arms in defense.
There was a long moment of tension as the creeper stood there, glaring

I ran ahead, sprinting past the creeper. A few spiders tried to block my path, but I easily slashed through their soft torsos. Kitty diced through a few more, and we were past the spiders.
"Hmm," she said. "These spider eyes are good for potions!"
Now we just needed to reach the cell. A couple creepers tried to charge me, but I dispatched most of them, backpedalling towards the cell.
Now zombies were coming out from all angles.
"Get behind me!" Kitty roared. I retreated behind Kitty as she went into all caps rage mode. Clawing one zombie apart, she kicked another one away. She bit into a zombie, and ripped its head off. I stood t

I wasn't able to keep up with the party for much longer, because it was starting to get dark again, and the trees and pigs were obstructing my view. As I chopped down yet another pig I noticed something flying by my face.
I freaked, and spun around, pulling my sword out of the pig to face the direction that the arrow came from. A skeleton crinkled, and I was barely able to block another flying arrow from piercing between my eyes. I slashed out at the skeleton, and it flew backwards, hissing slightly. It began to run away. Stupidly, I chased after it, feeling brazen wearing a full set of iron armor and having a monster on the run.

Gillian and I jumped back. Kitty dropped from one of the trees.
"I saw the fighting, and I really wanted to join in, but I didn't want make it worse," Kitty eyed Gillian. "Did you get any info on that white creeper of yours?"
"Not really," I mumbled, still trying to suppress laughter. "Not much more than we already know."
"Well," Gillian thought, "he did say something about a group of travelers "
"That would be us, right?" Kitty exclaimed happily.
"Maybe," I changed the subject. "So, how are Cobble and the other creeper getting along?"
"Good," Kitty bounced around cheerfully. "I think Tabesto's trying to teach Cobble

I looked at the distance that Gillian was staring at. There wasn't anything wait. A group of men were coming through the gate. They were walking straight down the road. All of them were men.
"The white creeper, legends say, is crucial to helping a group of adventurers reclaim the land from the undead plague that scourges us now," Gimi continued. "He is a very powerful ally, and will only help the purest of hearts."
"Tons of men are coming into the tavern," I warned.
"What?" he exclaimed.
"Yeah," Gillian pointed. "They all have swords and armor."
"That's not good," Gimiglider stammered nervously. "I might have neglected something I

Walking by the gates, I spotted a sign, rather run down. I could barely read what was written on the side:
We walked into the village. It seemed to be doing fine, although there were fewer people than usual. For two hundred people, there weren't many on the streets at all. The bustle of activity I normally saw in villages was gone, replaced by a few boys peddling things in their carts along the roads.
"Wow, so quiet," Gillian said. "People don't get up early or something?"
"Most of the men must've left," I remembered. "For Ralph's village."
"Oh," Gillian walked over to a wooden building, which was rather l

An arrow whistled through the air, and caught the wolf by the neck. The wolf acted as though it hit a wall, and flew backwards. I smacked the next wolf away with my fist, and Gillian appeared beside me, swinging the sword at the pack of wolves, and scoring a few slices on the red-eyed creatures. Two rolled into the ditch along with Courage, injured. One was limping away with an arrow sticking out of its pelt, but was knocked back by another arrow. The last one was still recovering from my punch. I grabbed the wolf, and twisted its neck. Roaring, I finally scared the wolves away, which scrambled to leave the ditch and run into the f

We ran through the fighting. Most people were going free-for-all, killing anything that got too close. Taking advantage of this, we reached the hills, and stopped to catch a breath. Looking down from the hills I spotted a group of men walking into town, bewildered by the chaos.
"They must be from the other towns, to check to see if Cobble's real!" I exclaimed.
"Well, they'll be disappointed," Gillian snickered. The yellow scarf creeper hissed in agreement.
"How is Cobble?" I went to check on the white creeper.
"She's fine." Gillian assured.
"How do you know he's fine? Wait!" I noticed what she was implying. "How do you know that Cobble's

"Wake up " I slowly stirred, and opened my eyes. My bruises were still there, and hurt like nether. I looked around. It was a small cell, with bars, and made of stone.
"We should've never saved that man," I spotted Kitty. Her paws were crossed, and angrily paced the cell.
I sat up from my cot, head only held up by my weak arms, which were braced against my sore legs. The guards had taken all my stuff, and probably took Kitty's stuff as well.
"Kitty," I slumped against my rock hard pillow, "Do you have anything that could help us break out?"
"Not that I know of," Kitty continued to pace angrily. "They took my blue yarn ball! I get why

I woke up finding myself being dragged by two guards across the ground on my butt. The two guards threw me onto the floor. I slowly looked around, and recognized familiar parts of the village. I was too weak to know for sure, but it seemed villagers were throwing things
Something hit me in the face, and wet, sticky goo dripped down my forehead. I tasted it, and I recognized it as egg yolk.
"BOO!" "KILL THE TRAITOR!" "DIE, YOU MONSTER!"
"Huh?" I tried to duck out of the way of the eggs. "I didn't do anything!"
"Don't listen to the traitor!" I looked up at the direction of the voice. A guard was standing atop a speaking podium. "He is

"Sssssurrender, losersssssss." The creeper that talked to me walked out of the horde of monsters. All the skeletons had drawn their bows. Fifty arrow tips aimed straight at all of us. We wouldn't stand a chance.
"Ssssstop thissssss madnessssssss." Another creeper walked out from the crowd. It seemed wrinkly, and darker green than the others. "We need the white one alive, in order to finish the ritual!"
"Not happening." Sweat dripped from my forehead, but I wiped it off, and got ready to take on all the fiends. Cobble was crying.
The other creeper walked forwards another step. "Fine. Zombiessssss, sssssspidersssssss, sssssseize thossssss-"

"Hey! Where you going?" Kitty followed me as I walked down the hall.
"Trying to find those people you were talking about!" I continued down the hall, sword in hand. "If you want to, you can follow."
"Oh, those people?" Kitty giggled. "They're over in that room!" She pointed at a room at the other side of the hall. "By the way, I'm coming."
"Really?" I gripped my sword tighter. "Do you have any extra milk?"
"Yes, why wouldn't I?" she replied.
"We're going to need it. Do you have a weapon?"
"Does it look like I need one?" she retorted. I shrugged.
I slowly tiptoed into the room. There was something troubling about it immediately. The roo

I opened my eyes, which were still blurry.
Was that a tiger in front of me? I couldn't tell-
The figure pulled my jaw open and threw a bucket of milk over my face. The cold milk sent chills through my body, and the unexpected milk flowed into my throat.
"Pleh!" I spat. My vision was getting a little better. That was a tiger?!?!?!?
"AHHHH!" I backed up, scooting myself to as far from the tiger as possible. Unfortunately, I was backed up in a corner next to the bookcase. Snatching up my sword, I pointed it at the big cat. "STAY BACK!"
"Calm down. I'm not gonna hurt you!" The tiger was standing on its hind le

"Hey," Kitty said with a swish of her tail, "I saved your life. You're a lot better off than the other people I met along the way."
"Wait? Did you say other people?" I interrupted quickly.
"Yes, there were other people. Aren't you part of their group?"
"No, I mean, yes. Sort of." I started to walk out of my corner. "Look, I need to get going. I need to save somebody."
"Definitely. Those guards aren't gonna get help from anyone else. Hey," she put her paw on my chest as I tried to pass her. Claws began to appear. "Don't try that on me. I deserve payment. I saved your life."
"OW! Ok. Fine. You got me.

"Done. Whew, that was some work," I said to no one.
After mining out the last piece of coal, I tossed the worn out wooden pick away. Packing up my crafting table, I wrapped the coals together with half of planks, and managed to create about a dozen torches. My survival skills were still intact, luckily. I still had extra coal, but I packed it up just in case.
The ravine came to a point where the moonlight no longer shone. Placing torches sparingly, I stumbled along the cave. Last night I had spent fixing my house, and so I hadn't slept in 50 minutes. I felt like a zombie, pulling leg after leg in search of a baby creeper I had just met two

"Step aside, civilian!" A guard grabbed me as I joined their group.
I came back to the village the morning after fixing my house up. I had dressed up in iron armor, snatched up a couple pieces of pork and fish for the journey, and even brought a crafting table along. My trusty diamond sword was pressed closely to my hip, and a couple dozen arrows and a few bows were brought along for backup. For emergency uses, I packed a bit of TNT. Many of the Elder's trusted men were going to track down the creepers, and take back Cobble. I wanted to join in. I have much combat experience, from my mining, hunting, and woodcutting trips. Plus, I had a feel

We headed down the hill to the nearby village. I usually came around to trade things, and catch morning gossip. The citizens there seemed to be doing well by themselves. I ignored the peddlers and wandering peoples and headed straight for the town elder.
The town elder, Ralph, according to legend, knew a time before Endermen and zombies inhabited the world, before the portals appeared and pig could stand. He would be able to understand what was going on, and what was with the creature.
"Hello, oh Town elder," I bowed before the holy man.

I could tell something was up immediately after we walked over the hill. My house was in shambles. Smoke was still rising from the ashes. Someone had blown a hole in the wall and looted the house. Courage howled, and Ralph shook his head.
"They must've known," the old man squared his shoulders.
"Who?" I asked.
"Someone," he started, "that wanted that creeper of yours."
"Uh, maybe." I started towards my house. "Look, let's search for the creeper, maybe they didn't take him. Maybe they were going for my mining materials."
The Elder nodded, and we headed to my house.
The inside was wrecked. My food chest was smashed open, and pieces of bre

Something blew up, though. I walked back to my bed. The sun was beginning to come up again. Outside, Endermen, skeleton, and zombies burned, and cows, sheep, chickens, and pigs began to dot the landscape once more.
"Hmm." I said to Courage, who was backed up against the wall, panting quickly and whimpering as usual. "Something is up, Courage. Somebody rescued me from the zombie. We need to find who did it. I feel like it's time for an adventure!"
The baby creeper hissed joyfully. Courage whimpered.
"Sorry-" I tried to address the creeper, but I realized he didn't have a name.
"Hmm," I thought to myself. "How about Charles?"

"I'm not answering your questions until you answer mine!" I said.
There was a slight pause before he started again, "Let's make a deal Jacob, for every question that I ask, you can ask one from me. That sounds perfectly fair to me, don't you agree?" he offered.
"How do I know you're gonna tell the truth?" I asked.

"So what's sanitation like?" I asked.
"Awful." Said Chris.
"Painful." Said Corbyn.
"Horrible." Said Cain. Sam gave a nervous chuckle.
"Umm just how bad is it?" Sam asked.
Chris thought for a minute, "It's really not as bad as you think." Chris assured her.
Sam smiled and lay down.
Chris waved to get my attention; he silently mouthed the words, "It's worse!" After about ten more minutes a group of guards approached us. There were at least ten of them. At the head of the group was a man in a white lab coat.
"Pokémon T-410." He said as he read a clipboard.
