Me: I can't believe you drank the last of the chocolate milk!
Moonlight: Well, SORRY!
Me: Sorry doesn't cut it! It was the best chocolate milk in the whole freakin' world!
Moonlight: -shrugs- It wasn't that good anyway.
Me: -eye twitches- Then why did you drink it?
Moonlight: Cause' I wanted to make you mad. –smirks-
Me: -sticks needle in Moonlight's neck- Take that!
Moonlight: No- yawn-fair –yawn- again! (falls to floor snoring)

Station Square. It hadn't changed a bit since the Metarex attack, nor did the lives of our heroes that much either or the way they acted and looked. The Sonic team now had gained 5 new members. Tikal from the Master Emerald, Rouge from Eggman's team, Silver and Blaze from a different dimension, and Shadow, the one they all thought was dead. He and Sonic actually became close friends/enemies/rivals after the time of Cosmo's death. Tails was sad at first but, he said that by talking to Cosmo's tree, it's like talking to her. So he's doing just fine. Cream and him are best friends, and do everything together. Beside him, Cream missed Cosmo the most. Rouge is still a jewel thief (Or collector as she puts it) and Knuckles guards the Master Emerald. He and Tikal occasionally talk about echidna stuff and it was nice having someone help him guard the Master Emerald. Silver and Blaze are inseparable. Silver is the only one Blaze trusts. Amy Rose still was in love with Sonic the Hedgehog. Even though he didn't outright say he loved her, she still thought of it that way when he promised to NEVER leave her. The other 3 girls (not including Cream) had the smallest of crushes on the other 3 boys (not including Tails) secretly and didn't know if it was love, but shrugged it off. But, they might just change their minds…
It was a bright sunny day, nice and peaceful. Two animals, a rabbit and a bat, flew towards a small little house. They landed as a little chao, by the name of Cheese, knocked on the door. The door opened to reveal a pink hedgehog.
"Hey girls! What's up?" The girl asked.
"Hi hun, the boys wanted us to meet at Tails' workshop cause' they wanted to tell us something. Cream's here because Vanilla asked me to watch her." The bat said. Cream was part of the Sonic team, but as Vanilla got older, she need more help with things. So, Cream sometimes had to sit out of adventures.
The rabbit sniffed the air and smiled.
"Rouge, I believe Amy is making Elle's recipe for apple pie!" She exclaimed.
Amy smiled. "You're correct Cream. It should be cool now, so I might be able to bring it so the whole team can enjoy it!" She said.
They all walked inside Amy's cozy house. Rouge smiled.
"I've always loved your home; it's so warm and welcoming."
Amy returned from the kitchen and smiled. "I wanted anyone who steps in here to feel welcome. Now let's get walking."
Well, Cream and Rouge flew. Amy ran with the pie to keep up with them. On the way, they saw Blaze and Tikal who decided to join them. Tikal transformed into a ball of light and Blaze used her fire to boost her up into the air. All four flew fast as Amy struggled to keep up.
'If only I could run as fast as Sonic and Shadow.'
Amy's thoughts were interrupted as the yellow workshop of the kitsune appeared. They walked up the door and waited for an answer to their knock. A 'Come in!' was heard from inside and they took the stairs to the meeting room underneath the basement.
The boys were all sitting with sad faces. They had terrible news and they were sure the girls wouldn't like it.
"We're here, and we brought pie!" Cream called.
The rest of the girls came into view, and Amy's eyes sparkle when she saw Sonic. She set the pie in the middle of the table.
"So what was it you needed to talk to us about?" She asked, looking straight at Sonic with a smile.
Sonic looked away from her, obviously sad about something, but Amy didn't notice. She just frowned and pouted; she obviously didn't get his attention. She was hoping for an invitation to a date and he invited the team so they all could celebrate the love the two shared.
'I guess I was wrong.' She thought. She then turned to Tails, and asked him the same question. Tails sighed.
"Mephiles is back and he's stronger than ever. Eggman brought him back and powered him up. He's planning to take over the universe. We need to go and destroy him, not defeat, destroy.
"Oh, well I know we can take him! We are the heroes of Mobius after all!" Amy exclaimed.
The boys sucked their teeth and the girls raised eyebrows.
"Actually, it's too dangerous so we don't think you should come." Shadow said.
"What? Silver, please tell Shadow we should come." Blaze said, looking at her companion.
Silver refused to meet the cat's eyes. Blaze growled. Amy and Tikal frowned while Rouge glared at them all.
"So why can't you let us go with you? We are just as strong as you guys and we've gone on other missions! What's the problem?" Rouge shouted.
Knuckles stood up.
"Look, you girls aren't going and that's final." He said, calmly.
Rouge looked ready to kill. Sonic stood up and whispered in Tails' ear. Tails looked shocked, but nodded.
'I wonder what that was about.' Blaze thought.
Suddenly, the ground beneath the girls collapsed and they fell into a huge cage. They groaned in pain, until they hear footsteps. Tikal looked up and saw all five boys and Cream outside the cage. Tikal was shocked; they put them in a cage.
Amy went ballistic.
"SONIC THE HEGDHOG, YOU GET ME OUT OF HERE THIS INSTANT!" She yelled.
Sonic just stared at her blankly and walked away. Shadow, Knuckles, and Silver followed. Cream had tears in her eyes and left for her house. Tails followed her, but went to his lab instead.
The girls were devastated. They tried breaking the bars, but they wouldn't budge. So, they just gave up and sat down. Rouge was trying her best to hold in her anger, Amy had tears in her eyes, Tikal was holding her head in her hands, and Blaze stared blankly at the direction Silver had went.
"He's no better than Eggman."
The bat, echidna, and cat looked at their rosette companion.
"Eggman captures me all the time and puts me in cages like this. Now you all know how I feel. I go through this everyday, and I'm sick of it." She said.
Tikal held Amy close to her, before it turned into a group hug. They all fell asleep.
