Well, the play I previously mentioned isn't over yet, but I'm sick so I got a whole day of writing time! Everyone wins! …well, except me… (Goes to throw up)
The quartet exited Hailfire Peaks.
"What you mean?" Mumbo asked.
"Yeah? How can you find the Chaos Emeralds?" Kazooie said.
"Simple." Shadow began. "I am a man-made hedgehog." He paused a moment for to let it sink in to the animals. "Dr. Eggman's grandfather, Gerald Robotnik created me using the energy of the Chaos Emeralds. Because of that, I have the ability to use the Chaos Emeralds to warp, as well as sense vaguely they are. Although, it appears that other animals have learned to warp with the Emeralds as well."
"Really?" Banjo said. "Wow." He was speechless.
Shadow said "We should be able to find a Chaos Emerald if you follow me." Eventually, Shadow led the group to the Wasteland.
"Well well well. If it isn't Shadow?"
Shadow wheeled around. "Dr. Eggman!"
"I see you survived the fall from the space colony, I don't know how, but I have to pay you back for your betrayal!"
"BETRAYAL?" Shadow yelled. "I saved your ungrateful life!"
"That you did," The mad scientist said. "but you still helped my enemies!"
"You idiot!" Shadow shouted. He leapt at the Egg-o-matic that Eggman was floating in, but a red robotic echidna jumped in the way. "A robotic Knuckles?" Shadow smirked. "I hope, for your sake, that he's stronger than Metal Sonic!"
"Chaos Control!" The robot shouted.
"WHAT?" Shadow gasped as Metal Knuckles appeared behind him, holding the dark blue Chaos Emerald. Claws extended from the robot's hands and it slashed Shadow in the back. "H-how? How can a robot use Chaos Control…?"
Eggman smirked. "I've studied your so called "Chaos Control" and have discovered how to give my robot the ability. I mean, if Sonic can do it, why can't my robots?"
Shadow growled. He swung his leg at Metal Knuckles, but he caught the kick, Red beams shot from its eyes at Shadow, but the hedgehog managed to narrowly dodge them.
"C'mon!" Kazooie said. "Shadow needs help, and I wanna tussle!"
The trio roared at the top of their lungs and rushed at Metal Knuckles. The robotic echidna vanished, causing Shadow to fall to the ground. The machine appeared behind the animals and clawed at Banjo's back. Kazooie popped out of the backpack and nailed Metal Knuckles with an ice egg. The robot stumbled backwards, and Kazooie hit it with a grenade egg. Shadow then ran up and kicked Metal Knuckles, and fire erupted from his shoes. The robot dropped the Chaos Emerald, and Shadow reached out to catch it. However, a metal claw shot from the Egg-o-matic, snatching the Emerald out of the air.
Eggman groaned. "It's so hard to find good help these days. I mean, even Sonic and his friends have teamed up with that witch skeleton!"
"What?" Shadow said. "Sonic's here!"
"…and he's teamed up with Grunty?" Banjo gasped.
"I don't need to explain anything to you!' Eggman said as he began to fly away. "Metal Knuckles, finish them off."
The robot saluted smartly. "YES SIR!"
The Egg-o-matic flew away, leaving the group facing the robot. "Don't worry." Shadow said. "Without the Chaos Emerald, we can beat this thing easily."
Banjo ran forward, picked up the robot, and threw it into the air. Kazooie popped her head out of his backpack and shot a grenade egg at it while Mumbo shot a spell at it. The explosion knocked Metal Knuckles towards Shadow who kicked the robot so hard it split in half. "That was easy." Mumbo said.
Shadow looked up. "There is a Chaos Emerald somewhere up there…"
"It must be at Cloud Cuckoo Land" Banjo said. "Come with us." Banjo, Kazooie and Mumbo led Shadow to the Great Bubble Elevator.
"What is that thing?" Shadow asked.
"Just get in." Banjo said, stepping into the bubble elevator. Shadow raised an eyebrow, and then crammed into the bubble between to Banjo and Mumbo. The bubble rose until the group was at Cloud Cuckoo Land.
"What the hell?" Shadow asked, looking around the crazy flying island.
"Yeah, everyone has that reaction to this place." Banjo said.
The group made their way into the mountain in the center, and when they entered the cave, they spied the light blue Chaos Emerald on the ground.
"There it is!' Kazooie said as they rushed at the Emerald.
Grunty flew up to Eggman on her broom. "So, you fed Banjo and company that lie about Sonic?"
"Yes." Eggman said. "Did you tell Sonic and his friends the lie about the others?"
"Uh-huh." Grunty nodded. "If we're lucky, they'll kill each other, leaving us free to take the rest of the Chaos Emeralds."
The members of the evil truce cackled manically at the thought of the death of their foes.
Yeah, I know, it's not that good of a chapter, but I'm mostly setting up for the next one.
Review! Next chapter soon (I hope)!
