How Jacques met Ann...Jacques sighed as he felt the steady ground beneath his feet instead of the constant swaying of the deck of the Black Pawkeet as he walked into the town with Garin. He looked around at the many people in the streets around him, and then Garin stopped to address the members of his crew.
"Alright, split up and get what supplies we need. And get what you can even if you don't need it," he said with a wink. His crew nodded and then spread out over the street, Jacques among them, looking for a purse to pickpocket off an unsuspecting person. He walked over to a stand, pretending to look at the contents of the stand as he stood behind a red Xweetok wearing a white shirt, moving forward slightly. Jacques eyed the full looking money bad on the belt of the Xweetok standing next to him, and then he smirked to himself as he started to cut at the strings with his knife. Suddenly, the Xweetok grabbed his wrist and looked at him over its shoulder. Jacques froze and blinked, realizing it was a girl.
RPS: Good Times, Bad Times...Emra pushed her way through the thick vegetation, while keeping a round picnic basket tucked on her arm as she did, slowly making her way towards the clearing ahead. Her ears twitched as she heard something large move around ahead of her, and she rolled her eyes with a loud sigh.
"Knuckles, before you go and throw something this way, its just me." Emra hollered ahead.
"Oh " Knuckles quickly put the large statue head back into place and leaned against it casually as Emra came out of the foliage and towards the Master Emerald shrine with her picnic basket.
"Honestly dude, you need to learn to chill when someone comes to visit," she said.
"I didn't do nothin'." Knuckles said innocently, crossing his arms. Emra rolled her eyes, but smiled as Knuckles' eyes fell on the picnic basket.
"Famished. But how'd you know?" Knuckles asked as the two of them sat at the foot of the Master Emerald steps. Emra giggled as she set the basket on her lap and opened it.
ST Episode 2: Part 4Emra gulped and froze, careful not to move as she heard the sound of something walked closer and closer to the opening. She also heard voices, and held her breath so she could hear them over her own heartbeat.
"Daylight! Emra must be outside!"
"Well at least she's not in here, blegh!"
"And what's wrong with caves?"
"We're not all batty like you, Rouge "
"Guys is that you!?" Emra blurted out and sat up slowly.
"Emra!" Shadow exclaimed in joy. Emra sighed in relief and ran to him, burying her nose into his chest as his arms held her close to him. "Thank goodness you're safe!"
"Are you okay sis?" Sonic asked, laying a hand on her shoulder. Emra nodded and smiled at him, but didn't let go of Shadow. Shadow smirked smugly at Sonic, who just rolled his eyes, which fell right onto Lightning.
"Who the--" he asked.
"Oh " Emra stepped away from Shadow for a moment and gestured to Lightning. "Guys, this is Lightning the Hedgehog. He helped me."
"Uh H-Hi " Lightnin
From Zero to Hero...
Sonic sat with his feet dangling over the wall, and on his face, a frown sat plain and simple.
He was thinking about his parents, who had a few months ago in a boating accident, both drowned but he somehow managed to survive. Sonic had been in the hospital for about three weeks, and when he was allowed to leave, he hardly went to school. He would just pop in and out of school because he could hardly think or function, so the teacher told him it was okay for him to take leave for awhile, but now he was starting to do better and going like he meant it now.
He was only a twelve year old, brown, spiky hedgehog, with emerald green eyes. He was small, and shy, hardly ever having the courage to stand up for himself or talk back to those who would pick on him, but then again he hadn't had to worry about it recently because he was too sad about the loss of his family.
Sonic's second week at school was almost over, just two days left, and already he was having to avoid even eye conta
ST Episode 2: Part 3Tails walked along with the others and looked up and down the walls. There was still no sign of Emra, or any of those creatures yet, but he kept his wits on alert. He stopped as he ran his hand along the wall to find wood instead of stone.
"Hey, guys! I think there's a door here!" he said as he pushed it open, finding a short corridor with lights at one end. Knuckles put a hand to his chin.
"Hm Doesn't look like it goes anywhere else than to a separate room. Its too narrow to be part of the actually mainstream of tunnels down here "
"We should still check it out That light makes me feel very suspicious," Shadow said with the slightest growl, his fur on end. Sonic nodded.
"Knuckles, you and Tails check it out, we'll wait here and keep our eyes open," he said.
"You do that, I'll look ahead for Emra," Rouge said, opening her wings. Shadow turned at Rouge.
"Are you sure that's a good idea, Rouge?" he asked. She smiled confidently at him.
"I'm used to traveling in dark cave
RPS: Bloody Mary by MoonlightElectra sat alone in a bar, on a barstool, stirring her drink gingerly to the rhythm that the DJ was playing. She had come out for a night away from her normal life, and to get away from a few old memories. She was wearing a purple and gold dress, with her hair pulled up in matching pins and beads, just to get attention but that wasn't saying she would accept such attention. A man about her age walked over to her as she stirred her drink and leaned against the side of the bar next to her.
"Hi there," he said. "Can I buy you a--"
"No." Electra said sharply, cutting him off. The man blinked but then smiled again.
"Then instead do you wanna--"
" Well, then can I have your--"
Dejected, the young man gave up and walked away, and Electra took a drink of her Bloody Mary. She sighed to herself as she set her glass back down on the counter, her fingers beginning to tap to the beat of the music as she looked around the large room at all the other people sitting, standing,
RPS: From One World to Another"Grim? Can you hear--"
"Sssh! There's one right above us!"
"Ulk! Teeka, let go!"
"Sorry! I'm scared!"
"For the last time, be quiet!"
Five creatures huddled close to one another for protection underneath a bridge in serious disrepair, hiding from the beast that hunted them. One of the creatures, the one named Grimshaw, who was a bat mixed with cat-like creature, sat with his large wings braced against the rock, and his tail twitching nervously. Beside him sat a creature whose facial features were hidden beneath the hood of a grim reaper-like cloak, except for his glowing green eyes, but out of the bottom of the cloak were a set of tentacles instead of legs. This creature's name was Bernard, and in one hand he held a scythe that has a large blade on both ends, and in his other hand, he clasped the paw of a cat-like creature who had light purple fur a tiny spiraled horn coming out of her brow, and a smooth mane sliding down her back. Her name was Kelli, and she wore a pink
