The final chapter (dun dun dunnnnnnnnn!) enjoy! (Oh by the way I'm no longer Brownscarf95, I'm now chocola cheesecake, to avoid any confusion)
The blood was boiling inside Sonic's veins. This Hedgehog had caused so much trouble; he couldn't bear to look at him. The obsidian hedgehog opposite was boiling with anger himself, he didn't know why he was angry but he was thirsty for revenge, and the chaos emeralds. Sonic leapt at him and Shadow dodged and punched him, Sonic crippled back and struck again. The two hedgehogs fought brutally, knocking down a few trees in their plight.
Back at the shrine of the master emerald Knuckles had left Amy to continue pacing around the giant stone, she started to hear the sounds of thudding and yelling. She chased the noises and found herself amongst a few tree stumps and two hedgehogs, both alike but one was dark cobalt and the other was black. Amy was terrified of them both as they were bloodthirsty. She sighted a crumpled ball nearby, it slowly breathing and twitching once in a while. She dived deep into the woods so she wouldn't be sighted and made her way to pull her friend out of the situation. Tails looked slightly different than he use to, but he was covered in cuts and horrific bruises on his back and head. She managed to drag him out safely and tried to wake him. "Wake up Tails, please, wake up!" Tails didn't budge but he was alive.
Sonic was turning darker and darker; to determination to destroy this 'clone' was crushing him mentally. He dodged a chaos spear and hit his enemy squarely on the stomach and Shadow flew backwards. Shadow couldn't feel anything, he couldn't remember much.
I don't know any other emotion but rage, all I can remember from my past is the chaos emeralds and to planning to kill the blue hedgehog. I'm just a mindless killing machine.
He noticed that the faker wasn't his usual self; he had no pupils and black fur. His opponent had gone wild and Shadow himself could feel his pupils vanishing.
Knuckles was getting agitated about the noise in the woods. He turned around to see some trees fall
That damn Sonic
Knuckles hurried to the forest and saw Amy with Tails. "What the heck is happening!" "I'm not 100% sure," Amy replied, "I think Tails got badly hurt when Sonic started attacking Shadow." "What SHADOW!? I need to go and sort those two out!" He walked forward but Amy stood in front of him. "No, I'll go. You stay here with Tails." "No you stay I'll confront them." Knuckles snapped back but Amy had already left. Knuckles groaned and dragged Tails back to the shrine.
Amy rushed through the trees; She was terrified that they would into their dark selves and kill her in the process.
But it's a risk I have to take
She stumbled on a tree and fell, picked herself up and ran off, She was slightly bleeding but her mind was too focused on running to care for the wound.
She found them still fighting, She screamed and hid her face.
OMG Dark Sonic and Shadow!
The two fighters stopped the scuffle and faced the shaking Hedgehog visible amongst the trees. They hit the ground with a thump and returned to their normal selves. Shadow was weirdly blinking; he suddenly remembered everything.
Shadow stood up and approached Amy but Sonic pushed him back and reached Amy first. "Don't you dare hurt her!" Sonic spat his rival. He gently shook her to her senses and she gazed up at Sonic. He was turning more cobalt now.
Sonic knew that he could be terrifying to Amy. He had found it hard to control his anger after the ARK incident; in prison it was quite common for him to attack his guard.
The greasy-haired guard was taunting Sonic (as usual) while Sonic was just grinning and bearing it, then suddenly the guard waved a piece of chocolate in front of the bars, Sonic sensed its creamy luxurious smell and tried to grab it. The guard yanked his hand away from the bars and popped it into his mouth, "mmm, shame you can't have any blue boy," The guard said with his mouth open disgustingly showing its contents of to Sonic, "you're only good enough for bread and water." Sonic couldn't stand it any more and leapt at the bars, clawing into thin air and gnashing his teeth menacingly as if a rottweiler would do to a nearby mailman. "Yowch!" the guard jumped back, He pulled a tranquilliser gun from his bag and aimed it at Sonic's head "Time to put you back in your place." He pulled the trigger.
*End of flash back.
Sonic shook himself, trying to forget but the memories couldn't escape: they stuck in his mind like glue. Shadow stood up clutching his stomach to see Sonic comforting Amy, gently rocking her too and fro while wrapping his arms around her. "Don't you two look like the perfect look like the perfect couple." he bitterly and ran off. Amy noticed Shadow leave. "Wait Shadow..." He was gone.
Tails had found himself lying by the master emerald; he felt the back of his head. The stinging pain had gone; he remembered almost falling into unconsciousness and grabbing the ankle of his attacker before disappearing with the light and Sonic... "Sonic?" he asked only Knuckles was around, watching over him. The light crimson echidna then looked away from him and jumped to the bottom of the shrine. He stood tall and firmly as a hedgehog approached. Knuckles glared at him but Shadow just glanced at him and put his head down and continued walking. "Yeah, you keep walking." he spat at Shadow, Shadow looked up nastily, his fists clenched and his set of white canines blaring. Knuckles took this as a challenge and clenched his fists, ready to fight. Knuckles ran to punch him but a white gloved palm held him up; Shadow didn't want a fight. Suddenly Shadow ran back into the forest without a word.
Before reaching to a clearing Shadow stopped himself.
Why the hell am I going back to that hedgehog?
Suddenly there was a click of a gun. "Don't move" hissed the voice, the gun was raised to Shadow's head. Shadow just wickedly smiled and walked away. "KEEP WALKING AND I'LL SHOOT!" The GUN officer was aiming his gun at Shadow, he was sweating from fright and his sweaty hands clung to the handle as if the gun was priceless china. "Foolish boy," Shadow just smirked and turned to face him the young officer was uneven, he swallowed and screamed "NOW!" His comrades leapt out of their hiding places and tried to stun Shadow. But Shadow's fur bounced the stun bullets off. One officer was dragging Amy and threw her at his feet. "Give yourself up Sonic, or your lover will suffer." he knelt down to her level she was scared. Very scared. The Guns were pointed at both of them, but did not see Shadow slip a chaos emerald to Amy. "Take it and find the others, I'll take care of this." he whispered. He then stood up with his hands up in the air, "Go!" he shouted at Amy and she chaos controlled her self away. The officers took a shot at Shadow but the bullets just bounced off of him. "CHAOS BLAST!" he shouted; he closed his eyes and opened them again. All the officers were blown back.
Amy appeared by the master emerald to see her old friends again. They were both touching the master emerald , lokking up at the sky which was dotted with black metal birds, they noticed the females presence. "There you are," Knuckles said, "We were just about to leave without you." "Come on!" Tails beckened Amy to come with them "The GUN forces will be landing soon and will probably kill us all!" but then time paused in Amy's veiw. The world was slowly shrinking into the distance when a demonic voice whisphered in to her ear.
"The demon will have all under his finger
If you dare stall, if you dare linger.
The price if you do will be dear
And the future will never be clear."
"AMY!" "wha what?" Amy snapped out of it. As if someone else was controling her mind she turned and ran "Sorry Tails this is my destiny, i have work to do." She didn't look back but she knew they had already gone.
Pathetic humans, that was too easy. They should count themselves lucky they're not dead.
After several minutes of standing in the debris, felt the presence of someone behind him. He turned to see a magenta female behind him; She looked at him in a complete amazement for a couple of minutes "Tails and Knuckles have fled with the master emerald." She said, feeling that queasy, horrible feeling of deja vu. She blinked for a bit and steeped away in shock, instead of the onyx hedgehog that was supposed to be in front of her was a crystal statue of a hedgehog, his mouth was open in shock.
"The demon has a heart of mystery,
Choose him and our killer is history."
She blinked again to see a confused Shadow "Are you alright?" he asked.
Demon, Shadow you're the demon, the demon hedgehog
There were suddenly banging and crashing noises before Amy could answer."RUN!" Shadow took Amy by the hand ran into the deepest parts of the forest, an armada of GUN aircraft were pursuing their steps. Suddenly an army was chasing them. "Hold on!" shadow cried and went into sonic speed, no could catch up with them. "Damn it!" They had reached the end of the island; the island was falling towards the earth, as the master emerald was gone. Sonic was right behind them. "Shadow, as much as hate you I beg of you, take Amy and run! I'll hand myself in, I deserve this, take her and run!" He turned to go but Shadow stopped him. "I've done the damage, I've killed more. Take Amy back to your homeland, I'll pretend to be you." "No! It's me they want! Not you!"
"Choose the Hero and something will be wrong
But affects of the mission will last life long."
Sonic's the hero?
The two male hedgehogs were bickering like mad but Amy couldn't see this, she shook herself. She was hallucinating two hedgehog-like demons like in the dream. They were crawling towards her.
Don't let this go; we are here for a reason, make your choice.
No I can't do this, YOU CAN'T MAKE ME!
Intervene and make your choice…
The end… for now. I will be doing three alternate sequels based on the decision Amy has to make (hopefully better written than this one). I will be realising them soon. Here's some small snippets from two of them…
Who are you? Why are you questioning me? I don't who you are mortal but you act as if you know me, as if read me like an open book. You look at me with so much confusion; you don't know what's gone on and how I got into this predictiment, locked in a padded cell and left to die while the earth crumble to dust. (My vile insanity)
The main room was still the same as it was all those years ago
You shouldn't be here
The glass floor painting a carpet of planets and stars
Shadow will catch you
My body was succumbing to the fear inside my mind
He will kill you
Then a hand came upon my shoulder
Good-bye Amy Rose (Shadowed lives)
