Knuckles The Echidna
Knuckles awakened to the sound of someone in boots or high heels landing off to the of him his eyes fluttered open and he grabbed his aching head quickly to try and dull the sound of his brain rattling around in his head. "What the heck happened to me?" he muttered to himself as he turned around and saw a pink fox with a black skirt, a long blue shirt, and gray sneakers standing in front of him with her back seemingly turned away from him.
He barely saw her slide something into her pocket and said, "Is that you Tails, wait, no, you're too girly to be Tails just who are you?" he stated as he pointed a demanding finger at Flash and glared at her with contempt. His blue eyes blazed and he growled, "I want some answers fast since I just got knocked off my island by someone and lost something precious to me." He didn't know who Flash The Fox was so he said nothing about losing the Master Emerald since for all he knew she could like Rogue The Bat and hunting for it with a grander purpose in mind. He crossed his arms across he chest and ground his shoe into the concrete of the roof waiting for an answer. He wasn't about to use physical force unless he had to, since they'd just met, but something almost urged him to do so, he could just feel this awful vibe coming from her like she was just going to ignore him.
Luna The Cat
Central City- Station Square
Not too far away from where Knuckles the Echidna was on the roof a young cat walked through the city along the edge of a chalk white side walk putting one foot in front of the other. She was minding her own business, but getting many stares from the people around her as she strut through the city. Cars whizzed by her along the edge of sidewalk on the paved road and tried to avoid her. Unfortunately, she was a site for sore eyes and many stared at her for the reason that she was a talking cat, one that had apparently lost its mind for the reason she was so close to the side of the road. The problem was that thanks to her short sleeve shirt, short shorts, dark purple boots, and strange blue hand gloves she seemed like a normal "girl" to them, yet the humans watching her still really felt they should walk up and say something about the dangers of the street. In their minds it was clear that she was from out of town.
"What a catastic place this is!" she exclaimed as she looked up at all the tall skyscrapers around her and ignored the cars passing her by. "I've not been to such a lovely city before, but I've got to remember my goal, daddy needs my help!" Suddenly a car swerved out of her and caused her to spin and kick her long legs out like a ballerina. She did not fall though and simply said as she regained her balance, and shocked many of the pedestrians, "Those machines they have here, those cars, they're really fast. However, I doubt they're as fast as Sonic The Hedgehog. I really need that guy's help."
Long ago her father had showed him to her in the picture of a magazine and said, "If you ever need help, go to him."
She looked around at the baffled pedestrians and smiled before walking over to a local newsstand and picking up the local paper. She then asked the owner when she saw Sonic's face on the front cover, "Have you seen this hedgehog?" pointing at Sonic's face so she would give him a good idea of who he was talking about.
"Everyone's seen Sonic the Hedgehog around these parts, but the best people to probably talk to about where he currently is are his friends Tails Miles Prowler or Amy Rose. They live in the city and could surely point you in his direction." the owner stated as he grabbed the newspaper from her and put it back on the newspaper rack. "I'll give you their addresses, but before you go you ought to watch where you're walking on the streets."
Luna nodded, leaned against the counter top of the stand and said, "Caterrific, I'll be sure to give the two of them a call and see if they can get Sonic to help me."
As the newspaper owner wrote out their addresses on a sheet of paper he asked Luna, "Why do you need Sonic The Hedgehog to help you?"
Luna sighed, shrugged and then answered, "My daddy fell down a mine shaft in the Mystic Caves-"
"And-" the newspaper owner said in a very uninterested tone as he finished writing out Tails' and Amy's address.
Luna took the paper from him, folded it up, and pocketed it before saying, "And, I think he fell into another dimension..."
The newspaper's eyes widened and he condoled, "I think that really does sound like a problem for Sonic!" Before he could say anymore though Luna said, "Thanks, got to go, have a catty day!" Before his eyes he watched her jump ten feet and land on the roof a taxi cab out driving out in the middle of the street.
"What is it with the increase of talking animals these days?" the newspaper owner wondered as he went back to his business of selling newspapers for the locals of in Central City.
