Thorns of Chaos: Epilogue ~ Shot Through the HeartSonic the Hedgehog didn’t get dizzy. For a guy that traveled as fast as he did, getting dizzy was unthinkable. When it came to this new level of speed, however, Sonic could tell that he would have to get used to the feeling, at least until he trained himself to adjust. Thankfully, he didn’t feel the need to puke this time, as that would have been rude. Especially considering that he had crash-landed into Cream’s house, which was rude enough already.
Standing wobbly in the middle of the kitchen, he tried to see straight, barely making out the hole he made in the wall. The Rabbit family now had a shortcut from the kitchen to the backyard that they didn’t need, even though Sonic had managed to open the yard door first. He felt pretty bad about what he did, and prepared an apology, but was interrupted by a voice to his right. “Are you alright, Sonic?” It sounded like Vanilla, but when he looked at her, he saw a comparatively different woman. Even with th
Thorns of Chaos: Chapter 30 ~ X-treme ObssessionSonic awoke feeling groggy, disoriented, and like an idiot. Of course the chili dog was drugged. Why else would it be sitting on the counter? ‘Fine. Note to self: Think before I act.’ Shaking the cobwebs of shame from his head as best he could, he tried to make out where he was. His vision was blurry, but from what he could tell, he was back in the basement lab. More specifically, he was within a cage in the basement lab. To make matters worse, he was also tied up with rope in a way that prevented movement; his arms were at his sides and his legs were completely immobile. He wouldn’t even be able to Super Spin in his condition.
This was as surreal for Sonic as it was humiliating, since he was usually the one rescuing kidnappers rather than being one himself. It seemed that this was going to be a day of milestones. Scoffing to himself, Sonic strained at his bindings. They were pretty tight, and he couldn’t feel any sort of weakness in them. He started to g
Thorns of Chaos: Mark of the GuardianOnce upon a time, there was an island, floating high above the clouds without a care. This was Angel Island, home to the remnants of the Knuckles clan. This band of Mobian echidnas was the last of their kind after the tragic events that led to their decimation at the hands of Perfect Chaos. From that point on, they vowed to protect their new home at all costs, lest they be embroiled in another meaningless war. Believe it or not, the Master Emerald’s protection in particular was not an immediate priority to begin with – though it was important – until an elder clansman, quickly gaining a reputation for soothsaying, had a dream.
“One day, an evil man will invade Angel Island and take the mighty stone… In our darkest hour, a spiky savior will come to take back our treasure and save the world…”
This shook the remnants to their core, and from then on, the protection of the Master Emerald took an utmost precedence, in order to prevent the soot
Thorns of Chaos: Chapter 29 ~ Last RitesSonic awoke in a daze. To his relief, it didn’t seem like he was unconscious for very long. That relief didn’t last long, though, once he realized where he was: none other than the abandoned laboratory of the late Professor Manuel Gazebo Boobowski. A broken chalkboard, numerous shattered beakers and test tubes, and unusable furniture littered the common area. All of that seemed to be the least of the debris, as scorch marks and blood stains decorated more and more of the walls leading to the basement. Whatever happened here long ago was an extremely unpleasant sight, to say the least.
As Sonic found himself gazing at the mess, the bad memories began to resurface, and he immediately made a break for the exit. Or, rather, he tried to. The moment he attempted a running start, he tripped and fell. Sonic felt woozy and off-balance, and immediately rolled to an old wastebasket to vomit in it.
Once that was done, Sonic determined that his body was not used to going that fast yet,
