"I just need one more and I'll have them all," said Knuckles.
Knuckles left the other Emeralds in a hole in the ground so no one could find them except for Knuckles. When he looked under every other rock, he couldn't find the last Emerald.
"I hope nobody took the last Emerald," said Knuckles. "It belongs in good hands, and never evil."
Knuckles looked straight and saw a woman with black clothes and hair.
"Who are you?" asked Knuckles.
"My name is Gentiana," said the woman. "I heard that you're looking for something."
"I'm Knuckles," said Knuckles. "I'm looking for the last Chaos Emerald. I also haven't seen my friends Sonic or Tails lately. I wonder where they are."
"I know where they are," said Gentiana. "Before I can take you to them, take this."
Gentiana gave Knuckles a large blade, which glowed in Knuckles' hands. His eyes shrunk and separated as his eye color became amber. He slowly grew taller until he was 6'6". Hi
