Chapter IV: The Morning (Pt. 1-2)The room was warm as a light breeze entered through the open window, tickling Tails' muzzle as he lay in bed. The fox was not asleep as he should have been, however. The night had filled him with so much excitement that it had made sleep impossible. Instead he enjoyed as it passed him by with his lover at his side, her head resting against his chest tuff as her rosebuds brushed against his nose. The fox was in ecstasy; the idea that today was the day he would finally declare to Cosmo had him grinning up at the ceiling from ear to ear. Sure, he was nervous, but right now the thrill of the moment overpowered his fears and urged him out of bed.

"Stupid wrench!" I growled under my breath as I gave my tool another sharp tug. It was times like these that made me jealous of Sonic, Knuckles, and the others who managed to get all the cool super powers while I can barely tighten a bolt. Oh sure, flying is great when you're trying to reach the top shelf in your pantry, but it doesn't do much good when you're trying to mount something as heavy as a wing onto a fuselage and a bolt manages to get stuck. I would call Knuckles, but I really don't want to hear all the rap I'd get later for calling him all the way from Angel Island to get him to help me with what amounts to opening a pickle jar. A
Chapter I: Happy Birthday, Tails!"SURPRISE!!!" Shouted all who were gathered in the room as a small, two-tailed kitsune stepped into his dimly lit home, briefly disoriented by the light from the overhead lamp being suddenly thrown in his face. When his vision cleared he looked up to see his plethora of friends scattered around his living room, each with huge smiles on their faces as they heralded another year of age for the genius fox boy. Present was his best friend, Sonic the Hedgehog, wearing a striped party hat as though it were a crown as he jumped from one foot to the other excitedly. Then there was Amy, standing closely next to Sonic bearing a colorfully wrapped giftChapter I: Happy Birthday, Tails!9 months ago in Romance More Like This

It was quiet within the corridors of the Blue Typhoon. The only sound that could be heard was the engines, humming faintly as they pushed the titanic craft through space. It was not a natural silence, however. The halls that had once echoed with laughter and the warmth of friendship now felt cold and empty. Upon the bridge stood a group of close companions, all staring out of the main viewport with the same look of dysphoria frozen upon their faces. Cream clung tightly to Amy's waist as she wept softly. Amy turned to Sonic with a look of desperation in her eyes, her tears mingling with the makeup on her face as they ran down her cheeks. He sa

Tails woke to find himself lying on a flat surface with a light blanket spread over him. He rolled onto his back and opened his eyes only to be blinded by a white light. Crying out, he threw his hands over his face to shield them. After his vision cleared and everything came into focus he realized he was in the medical bay, laying in the same bed that Cosmo had when they had discovered the sensor in her brain. He did not remember how he came to be here but suspected someone had carried him from the bridge.
"Maybe it was a dream," he thought to himself, "please god let it all have been a dream."
It took him a moment to realize that he was no

When they finally reached Tails' house, Cosmo could not help but be impressed by Tails' humble abode. His house was a small A-Frame style building, which was perched on the edge of a hill consisting of two stories and what looked like a basement area toward the back. There was also a shed like structure off to the side of his house, which Cosmo assumed was his workshop. What impressed her more was the fact that Tails lived in and maintained his house on his own with no parents or guardians to look after him. She wondered if this ever made him feel lonely. She also began to wonder where his parents were and why they had left their son to take

It was early in the morning and all was quiet. The peaceful dark remained unbroken by the morning sun as all Mobians continued to sleep soundly. Everything was calm and peaceful.
Yet surprisingly Tails was awake staring out of his living room window at the stars, which had begun to fade from the night sky. He had woken up unusually early and decided that he wanted to watch the sunrise. Although dawn was still over two hours away, Tails had no desire to continue sleeping. Instead he stared out of his window, ruminating on past events.

Tails sat on his couch and stared forlornly at the sprout in front of him. Time seemed to pass slowly for the fox as he watched his plant grow within its small clay pot. As the hours dragged on his mind began to wander only to arrive at the same thoughts as before. His thoughts always drifted back to his love and how he wished she could be there with him. He began to find it increasingly painful to think about her yet found it painful not to. Once again he found himself talking to the plant as though it were her.
"Hi there," he whispered softly, "I-I-I miss you..."
He hung his head and began to fight back tears. Although he could not explai

As the party entered the restaurant all were taken aback by the sheer decadence of the establishment. Everything from the decor to the staff seemed to reek of ostentatiousness. At the center of the lobby was an impressive marble fountain with water cascading down its central spire over the edge of a bowl and into a small goldfish pond below. Rings sparkled beneath the water, tossed in with the wishes of children and by Mobians generous enough to spare them. The walls were painted in swirling gold

Four days passed and found the Blue Typhoon close to home. The thought of returning to their peaceful lives on Mobius save for the occasional Robotnik invasion left everyone in high spirits. All but one, who had remained in his quarters for the duration of the journey accepting little food and speaking to no one. He merely sat in his quarters and stared with sad eyes at a small clay pot that Cream had recently planted Cosmo's seed in. She had used soil samples from the Green Planet in hopes that it would help the seed grow faster and stronger. The only hope that Tails now held was in two small leaves poking out of the soil.

White, endless white, that is what he was seeing at the moment. An endless canopy of white stretched over his head that seemed to go on forever, broken only by the black stars that dotted this strange inverted sky. It was dizzying to look at this strange spectacle, but infinitely preferable to looking down. One could see what looked like the entirety of the universe beneath him, as if viewed through a sheet of transparent glass. Any other being would have been driven mad at the mere sight of this place, but then he was no ordinary being anymore. A curse that he had never asked for, and now wished he could give back.

Oddly enough the dark master himself was not on the bridge this day, but rather secluded in his meditation chamber extending his sites across the lush planet. Within the corridors the decaying form of a slave limped across the hall having been summoned by his master for reasons unknown. Upon arrival at the chamber door the servant hesitated, deciding how best to gain his master's attention.

Chapter III: More than MaliciousThe midnight hour approached as Jaran Kai made his way home from Tails' lab, having once again acted as council for the adolescent fox. A poorly made up song of joy he sang as he danced down the darkened streets, allowing his glee to take hold of him again. Tails and Cosmo, the children he had been charged with protecting ever since he had arrived on Mobius, were to finally be joined in glorious matrimony. In addition, Tails had asked him to aid in the preparations for the next day. The thought sent shivers up his spine as he approached his hidden beachside bungalow, holding a hand out and disengaging the door's telekinetically triggered lockChapter III: More than Malicious7 months ago in Horror More Like This

Amy complained as she dragged herself down the Mobius Strip in downtown Mobotropolis, her high-heels clapping as they struck the ground. Garbed in a familiar dress which she had worn at the party on the Blue Typhoon to try and impress Sonic, she found herself once again wearing this outfit as she and Sonic made their way to the newly constructed Mediterranean restaurant located on the strip, as directed by Shadow in a rather cryptic note. Sonic tugged at his collar as he walked wearing a suit which Amy had insistently picked out for him, finding any kind of clothing to be uncomfortable as many Mobian malesChapter VI: The Evening (Pt. 2)5 months ago in Humor More Like This

Finding himself incapable due to the burden on his mind he once again retrieved the black, velveteen box from within his desk and opened it, gazing at the tiny diamond ring held inside. The kitsune let out a forlorn sigh as he fingered the sparkling gemstone, reflecting back on the decision he had come to at the party, now feeling much less certain about it than before.

Walking over to the bed she gave the blanket a slight tug to straighten out the minor imperfection. She then left the room being sure to close the door behind her.

"I didn't say I lost it," Vector said defensively, "I just... don't know where it is."
Sonic smacked his forehead in frustration.
"Now wait just a moment. Let's think about this," Vanilla said calmly, "where did you last have it Vector?"
"I locked it in my desk drawer as soon as we got home," Vector replied.

The next two days were spent in nervous anticipation. The disappearance of the Chaos Emeralds as a result of the appearance of a new dark persona only added to the already immense stress of dealing with Tails' depression. A feeling of foreboding hung over the team, and prompted them to keep an even closer watch over the remaining Chaos Emeralds.

Up until this point the day had proceeded very quietly, with Tails in his workshop while Cosmo worked in her garden. A light rain had begun to fall prompting the two to return to their living room for a quiet evening, now postponed due to the knock at their door. Tails opened the door and was surprised to find Jaran Kai standing at his doorstep, his cloak heavily soaked from the rain coming down outside.

Eggman screamed frantically as he watched the main viewer, seeing three hedgehogs, an echidna, a fox, a flower, and a human force their way into the entrance of his seaside base. He had never expected a retaliation so quickly, and with his prototype Pawn undergoing a recharge cycle he had nothing to combat against the preternatural powers of Jaran Kai. He had assumed with the beating they had received less than an hour earlier that any other attack would have been dissuaded, and as such had no backup plan to combat this full frontal assault.

Light pierced the window in Tails' bedroom and caused him to shift in his bed. He slowly opened his eyes and looked around his bedroom wondering how he ended up in his bed. He then remembered his breakdown at the beach and Sonic flying him home in the X Tornado.
"I must have fallen asleep," he said to himself climbing out of bed. He walked into his bathroom and looked himself over in the mirror. His eyes were crusted over from having cried himself to sleep and his fur was dirty and unkempt. He did not care. Nothing seemed to matter to him anymore.

Tails awoke the next morning feeling surprisingly refreshed. Everything seemed clearer after a good night's sleep that they had the previous day. Although the words of Shadow still echoed in his mind, they had more of a calming effect on him today. Even though he was still angry at Shadow for what he had tried to do back on the Typhoon, he took some measure of comfort in the fact that he had a kindred spirit who could sympathize with him on his situation. The idea that he might yet be able to recover from his loss and be happy again gave him a small bit of hope in what otherwise seemed like a hopeless situation.
