Tails and Cosmo stood close, keeping sights open for any of the dead that would approach them. They had no idea what to expect.
They were standing in the middle of a broken-paved street. Everything seemed to be broken or very old. Cold chills were breezing passed them from down the streets. There were cars parked along the street, but they all seemed so old. Tails had doubts of them even starting. Houses down the streets were cracked, broken down, and empty. It all seemed so lonely in this place.
What was that? Cosmo heard a light footstep down the street. They both looked, but they didnt see anything passed the fog in the distance. Moments later they both heard the sound again. Cosmo grabbed a hold of Tails hand and shivered. Tails put his arm around her shoulder to help her feel supported.
Tails, Im scared Cosmo whispered.
Suddenly from behind the fog they could see a dark image walking towar

Since Tails and Cosmo have been hiding in this room they kept trading smiles. They both felt confident that they were going to make it out of this place.
Eventually they heard footsteps outside of the door. Tails was about to get ready to escape and picked up Cosmo, and attempted to fly, but then remembered; he cant any more He sighed and put Cosmo back down and stood protectively in front of her facing the door, and began to sweat. Without his flight, he was now terrified to battle a dark fox. But it didnt occur to him that he had a second option now.
Tails Cosmo whispered, worried that Tails would just get hurt again. The fear of getting hurt didnt phase Tails. The only thing that scared him was being unable to protect Cosmo.
The door began to slam, and Tails kept his frown as sweat dripped down the sides of his face.
Suddenly the door burst open and a dark fox walked in. He looked at Tails who was trying to pr

Its been an hour and a half since Tails fight with the dark fox. Since then, Tails and Cosmo have been hiding out in another room in the alleys that had a storage of empty wine bottles, but they were now unconfident that they could hide for very long after being caught so easily twice. Tails had a sore back from the splinters and a bit of an aching shoulder from being rammed into the walls.
Cosmo was rested okay now and had offered Tails a chance to get some sleep himself, but he refused and remained awake to be sure he was conscious when they were under attack.
Cosmo Tails asked, What was it like to be you know dead?
Cosmo sighed and leaned into Tails, Its very hard to describe. You know the point when youre right in between falling asleep and awake? The point where you dream the most

Tails and Cosmo have been hiding in the apartment room for 2 hours. Cosmo was sleeping peacefully, and Tails hasnt noticed any signs of the dark foxes since then. For now he felt safe, but he was hungry.
Cosmo suddenly sat up and shrieked.
Cosmo, calm down. Tails tried to relax her, Youre just having a bad dream.
Cosmo immediately calmed down and rested against Tails, Im so glad youre here for me, Tails
And I wont leave you Tails promised, Ill be with you through the whole thing. Im still here, you can go back to sleep.
Im pretty hungry Cosmo sighed, Though I doubt therell be anything to eat here

Tails and Cosmo were walking carefully through the alleys looking for a place to hide. For the past 30 minutes they have ditched every room they passed after taking a look inside. Tails kept declining these places to hide because no matter how hard they try, theyll get caught anyway. He was searching for a full-proof hiding spot. The question kept ringing through his thoughts, Where will we be safe?
Tails and Cosmo approached a left turn in the alley up ahead. Just down the alley they found a dark fox walking in their direction. It right away noticed them and stopped to laugh, Here Im looking for you, and you found me instead. He starting running after Cosmo and Tails.
Tails! Cosmo shrieked. Tails quickly picked up Cosmo with his good arm and flew the other way. The dark fox began to fly as well and chased after them.
As Tails retreated, he bumped into another dark fox. Surprise, surprise. It

Cosmo ? Tails asked.
Yes, Tails? Cosmo wondered.
Tails looked at Cosmo with a sort of sad face, I He stopped saying anything and looked back down at the floor and sighed.
Cosmo rubbed Tails back and smiled, Its okay, Tails. You can tell me anything. Whats wrong?
Tails kept his head down and turned his head to the side a bit in the other direction from Cosmo. I shouldnt say anything
Why not, Tails? Cosmo asked.

It has been 5 years since they have defeated the Metarex. 5 years since the tragic loss that Tails had to put up with which was caused by his own hand. Since Cosmo died, Tails has felt the same pain each and every day that would never go away. He has done very little inventing, or any work with his machines at all since then. He has just been too depressed to think outside of his loss.
Tails went to the tallest view-point on the hill near his house, and sat on the edge of the cliff-side. Below was the view of a forest, and passed the forest was the sea. Glittering in the sea below the dark sky was the suns reflection, which was slowly setting below the horizon. Tails laid down on his side in the grass and curled himself up into a ball while watching the sun, blurred by his tears, as it was disappearing behind the sea.
How ? Why ? Tails whimpered through his throat, It It isnt fair

Tails tried to move his arm around. It was still sore, but it felt much better than it did before. Thank you, Cosmo Whered you learn how to do that so well?
Cosmo shrugged and smiled, Not sure. First try.
Youre a keeper. Tails laughed.
Well aint that just touching A dark fox was walking in their direction from down the alley with his arms folded as he grinned.
Tails stood up protectively in front of Cosmo and stared down at the dark fox, Dont you ash trays ever give up?!

After the dark fox had fired the black bolt, it seemed almost hopeless for Tails to dodge out of the way. The vent they were in was too narrow to dodge the bolt, which was heading straight for them.
Tails picked up his speed and raced for a left turn up ahead. Just before the bolt caught up to them, Tails barely got into the left turn in the vent up ahead and the bolt passed by and trailed down the vent and hit a dead end blowing a hole in the wall.
Tails kept racing through the vents with Cosmo and came to the end of the vent; closed off by a duct cover. The other side of the vent lead to a different room of the building. Tails kicked it open and entered the room; the dark fox was still following their trail.
The building they were in appeared to be an old science lab. There were all sorts of old, useless machines, and there were many empty glass pods, and some of them were smashed apart. The rooms ceiling was also very high.

Tails woke up an hour and a half later and his eyes were lit open from all the pain, and he was ready to jump and panic.
Tails, stay calm! Just relax, and try not to move too much. Cosmo warned, Youve been through a lot, dont panic, itll make it worse.
Tails looked around and felt dizzy. He put his right hand over his forehead and groaned, My head Why does it hurt ? He felt around and noticed that there was a bandage wrapped around his forehead, Cosmo, what happened ?
You got a pretty big hit to the head, so I bandaged it up with some pillowcases from around the room. Cosmo explained.

It has been 30 minutes since Tails and Cosmo have been hiding in the empty room Tails found in the alley. There havent been any signs of the dark foxes. Cosmo was fast asleep in Tails lap, and Tails remained awake to be sure they were safe.
Suddenly there was a very loud banging noise that came directly from on the other side of the wall Tails was leaning against. Cosmo immediately woke up in panic, What was that??
Tails stood up and took Cosmos hand, backing away from the wall. Moments after, there was another very loud bang coming from the wall, and this time it shook the entire room and a few ceiling tiles fell to the floor from the vibration. Cosmo held onto Tails hand very tight and she shivered terrified and panicked.
After the third loud bang, the wall burst down in a cloud of dust. The ceiling light fell to the floor from the impact and shattered, along with more ceiling tiles. The dust from the broken wall c

Four and a half hours have passed. Tails was now feeling a bit better and his back wasnt near as bad as it was earlier. They were still in the lab; Tails felt too weak to take them somewhere else, but none the less, they felt safe enough in here. As time went by, Tails recovered most of his strength and he could stand and fly again.
Thank you, Cosmo Tails said, For aiding my sores
Anything, Tails Cosmo smiled, How are you feeling now?

Cosmo giggled and kissed him on the forehead.

What do you mean Tails cant come home with me?!! Tears spilled down Cosmos face. Heartbroken, she couldnt bear the situation.
Im sorry, Cosmo. Death sighed.
Cosmo kept denying and throwing her anger, Its not fair!
I know, and I never said it was meant to be fair. This was a rule. If Tails died here, then that is how he would remain
Cosmo continued to cry over Tails helpless face and her tears kept falling on his muzzle. She bent down and hugged his body close to her and sobbed over his shoulder, I cant leave him!
Cosmo, this is all he wanted.
What?!! How can you know what Tails possibly wanted?!!
He said so himself. Death exclaimed, He would give his life for your own.
Death knelt down next to Cosmo and looked down at Tails, It was very brave of him to do such a task for you, Cosmo.

As I was growing up
I learned to stare into the blue
not to look at anyones face
and not to speak unless spoken to.
In all that time
I did what I was told
now I don't know what to do
cuz the habit has a hold.
I try to open up
but I just don't know what to say
I sit and I stare
hoping the past will go away.
I didn't think it had a hold on me
but apparantly it still shows
I thought people just thought I was quiet
but most of them know.
I tried to speak
but nothing would come out
a billion broken thoughts
that made me want to shout.
I tried to have fun
and to have a nice talk
but it was an awkward silence
on our long walk.
I will work on my insecurities
by the time you come back here
that I will promise
a promise to you, my dear.

"Look in that window over there." I said to Ben. He turned towards the car and looked inside its window. He gasped at what he saw.
"Gasp" He gasped. The car was chock-full of duck feathers, so many that the car seemed to be bulging from the pressure.
"Lets take a closer look Ben." I said, motioning for Ben to follow. I walked towards the car, purpose leaking from my every step. My mind was throwing up images, memories from the past two days. My fourth sense, the detective within me, was putting all the pieces together.
"Ben, the man who hired us, he had a duck on his head, right?"
"The Duck with the Man on his bottom." As we reached the car, I discarded Ben's comment as a simple

After our last ordeal, Ben and I were kind of worn out, so we headed over to the jazz club for some tunes and a few drinks. Sometimes I wondered about ben, he even spoke in code when we were off duty....
"WHITE PEARLS and water."
Ben wanted whiskey, on the rocks.
"Whisky, on the rocks. And an Apple Juice"
I said to the bartender
Ben and I turned to the musicians and waited for the drinks, Ben said something discreetly in my ear:
"The water here is thin"
I tasted my newly arrived drink, and I agree'd. There was something wrong with the drink. I thought about it, puzzling over the possibilities when my eyes felt droopy. I realized what had been in the drink. Through my hazy consiousness I turned to ben, he was falling asleep too, mumbling to himself.

It was a rainy day. It's funny how it always rains in this city on days that something dramatic and worth investigating happens. There was a light knock on the door frame. It must be Beth, I thought as I flicked on the light and removed my hat. "Yes, Beth?" I asked as I took my feet off the desk and stood.

On my daily walk about the internet I often come across some horrible piece of writing at which I'm forced to stop reading and take a few deep breaths to calm myself before either sending a note to the writer, or fleeing in terror. These pieces of writing are usually just an accumulation of terrible spelling, grammar, syntax, and too much or too little plot, description, dialogue or action. Yes, there are stories that may have a lean towards dialogue or action and still look absolutely wonderful – in fact, these are the stories usually best written, because the author has learnt how to use their skills and mediums to produce the best result from a usually disastrous content – but the bundles of words I'm referring to have not had the same care and talent poured into them.
