ME - Last Stand Pt. 4After many tried, and failed, attempts to get Tails to stand up, it finally worked. It only took the two eight minutes to make it work. Walking straight was a different problem. It was almost like watching a child try and take their first steps. Theyd fall, walk a little funny, or just have their legs crumple right underneath them. But ten minutes later, along with a couple curses from Leon, Tails was able to walk somewhat in a straight line. The small group of two made there way through the darkness, Leon leading the way. They came to the corner of the room; in the corner was a circular wooden desk. Atop the desk was a green bird with red shoes, gloves, and cracked goggles on its head. It was sitting with its back against the wall, head down, and right leg brought up towards the birds body, concealing the right side of its face.Leon lightly kicked the table, causing the bird to open its right eye and glare at the leopard. Jet, you arent just going
Welcome Back Pt. 5Tails slowly placed the last Chaos Emerald on the keyboard in front of the doctor. Hed ran all the way back to Eggmans base, which was safely hidin deep within the forest.Are they okay..? The fox hesitated slightly as he asked.Theyre fine. I told you if you kept your part of the deal Id keep mine. Eggman picked up the Emerald and looked at it closely. Oh, theyve also been asking to see you.
Y-You mean theyre here?Of course
.How silly of me, I forgot to tell you. Eggman then placed the gem back down on the keyboard. Bring them in!A steel door behind the two suddenly opened. Three large navy blue robots marched in, each holding a tied Mobian. The three robots, along with the Mobians in front of them, made a line directly in front of Tails and Eggman.So nice of you three to join us today. Eggman clasped his hands together and stood up.Just get on
Welcome Back Pt. 4 You know what to do, youve done it enough times before. This is the last one I need, and they are bound to be guarding it. From what I know they have it at that rabbits home. I want you to go in and get it. Are we clear? Yes
What was that?Yes
.sir.Good. Now hurry up, we dont have much time left
Tails muttered under his breathe as his superiors voice cut out. Last week he had been successful in getting all the other Emeralds with little confrontation with his friends, thanks to Eggmans horde of robots attacking the city. The last one was an obvious trap, thats why Eggman sent Tails to go and retrieve it.It was around seven thirty at night when Tails reached the Rabbits home. The whole city was on alert for any sign of him, thanks to last weeks problem. The whole house was dark, except for the front room. The trap would be obvious even to a blind man.The orange fox
Welcome Back Pt. 3I came back here because thats what Im supposed to do. Nothing more. Tails replied in a shaky voice as he nodded towards the doctor. But now she knows youre going after the Emerald, and she can warn all who have one! Eggman yelled back. Youve made too many mistakes, Tails. One more and it might not be so pleasant for your friends
The madman held up a small square remote-like object with six buttons and one large red switch on it.Sh-Shes unconscious. I shot her with the stun gun
Hmph, thats one thing youve gotten right over the past few weeks. Now before she wakes up and tells everybody what youre after, go and get that Emerald. But, before you go
Eggman reached into his chest pocket and pulled out a small, black round object and threw it at Tails. Place that in your ear and Ill be able to talk to you, making sure you dont mess
Welcome Back Pt. 2They were the heart and soul of the most feared empire on the planet. They were said to have no feelings, no cares, just orders. They have more than orders; they can even tell when somebody is like them; forced to fight a battle they dont want. Like when they have to fight that cursed blue robot-destroying hedgehog.A strange two-tailed fox had been within the corridors of the empire for a long time now. None of the robots bothered him, for they know what he has been forced to do, and what he will be facing in the future. But like the robots, the fox doesnt have a choice in who he can and cannot fight.
.You know what I can do if you dont follow my orders. So Ive got a test for you, because we cant have you hesitating like last time. They now know youre with me, and they will fight back if they see you. Got that? The orange two-tailed fox nodded towards the doctor, his head down. So I want you to find me a Chaos Emerald. But
