It has been five years since I last saw my family. I really do miss them, but not enough to go back home because of it. I ran away from home because I had almost killed my sister out of rage. Now, I don't let anyone near me. I just don't want to hurt anyone else ever again.
Wait, where are my manners? My name, or at least it used to be, is Charles Leonardo Killmor, or Blizzard the hedgehog. I was a dark grey hedgehog with blue streaks. Now I am a bright orange hedgehog with red streaks. I had dyed them because otherwise I would have stuck out like a sore thumb.
I used to live in New Mobotropolis, now I live in downtown Metropolis. I have a red Mustang with blue racing stripes. Now, my name is Inferno the hedgehog. I live alone and work as an engineer for the town factory. My new control over fire allows my job to be a synch.
With my new power, my anger increased. As it did, so did the crime rate. I admit, I did let my anger get the best of me at some moments. But, I could keep it under control to the point of where my family couldn't find me. They would never find me here.
Or at least that's what I thought, until that one day came. I had been walking through one of my gang's favorite alleys when I heard them beating the shit out of some poor sap. I turned the corner and was met by a familiar face or two.
"Hey Inferno, looks like we have two little love birds running through our streets. What should we do with em?" My friend, Crush said while holding on to a blue hedgehog. "Yeah, but can we keep the cat, she's mighty perty?" My associate, Blade said while keeping his arms around a purple cat.
"Well, well, well, what do we have here lads? A lost couple, seekers, a lucky man and a prostitute? Wait, aren't you Sonic the hedgehog and Blaze the cat by any chance?" I said while looking them over, HOW DID THEY FIND ME?
"Yes we are, no could you let us go so we can get back to 'searching'" Sonic said while trying to spin dash one of my men. "Please, just let us go. We are trying to find our friend." I turned to Blaze with a smirk on my face, I'm just acting to make it seem like I was some gangster, I would never do this to anyone.
"I don't know little lady, it depends on who you are trying to find." She started to get a scared look on her face.
"We're trying to find our Friend Blizzard. He is a dark grey hedgehog with blue streaks. Have any of you seen him?" I heard Sonic say. I got a disappointed feeling in the pit of my stomach. I would have to tell them sooner or later, and no time like the future.
"Just please, let me and my boyfriend go!" When I heard this, I couldn't help but laugh. "Wow, who would have thought Sonic and Blaze would end up together, wait until Tails hears about this spike head." Wait, why did I call him my old nickname for him?
"Wait; only one person called me that, Charles is that you?" SHIT, WHY DID I SAY THAT? "Nice to see you to Sonic, and you to Blaze." I said with a guilty tone. They both looked at me with surprised looks plastered on their faces.
"Blizzard, what happened to you? Why are you a gang leader? Why are you orange instead of grey?" They both started saying in unison back and forth.
"Hey, nobody asks master Inferno the questions, he asks you the questions." Crush said from my right. "Thank you Crush, now where was I?" Then Blaze must have called for backup or something, because everyone else burst through the wall thanks to Knuckles."Hold it, all of you. You're coming with us Charles."
"Run, it's the cops!" Crush said out of the black because the alley had gone dark. That's when I started to get really sleepy. I feel my neck and feel a needle with a plastic bunch on the end. They hit me with a tranquilizer dart! I cripple to my knees and start to black out. Then I hear someone crying out "Blizzard, GET UP!" At this, I instantly get up and start to fight them off. I jump up and shake Tails off my arm.
Then I punch Sonic back while kicking Amy in the knees, making her fall on her face. I jump up to avoid Knuckles and swing him over my back, making him fly into a wall. I turn to Blaze and surround her in a case of ice, which cannot be broken. When I turn around to run, I am met by two faces I thought I would never see again.
"Charles stop, you don't have to do this. We just want you to come home." I turn to the white hedgehog with a surprised face.
"We just want you back, please stop." I turn to the black cat with a questioning glare.
"What are you two doing here? Last time I checked, you thought I was a monster. And you thought that I wanted to kill my own sister." They both got disappointed faces after that. That's when I felt something I hadn't felt for five years. I actually felt guilt towards my siblings. That's when got a really sad look on my face. They seemed to be surprised by this.
"Hey dude, are you ok?" That's all I heard because I was knocked out with another dart to my thigh.
When I woke up next, I was sitting in my old room. It didn't look like anything had changed. Then I heard the door open. I looked over to it and saw a familiar face, my father Mephiles.
"Welcome home son."
