Chapter Five

 

A half hour later, when Kay was almost dozing off, Vector and Charmy finished their game and stood up. Vector stretched, his massive form almost reaching the ceiling, and headed for the miniature kitchen in Freedom HQ. He glanced over and saw Kay half-asleep in the corner. “Yo, Kay.” She opened her eyes and looked at him. “You hungry?”

Kay thought about it for a moment. The only thing she’d had since waking up on Eggman’s space station was a glass of strawberry soda. She felt the emptiness in her stomach and said, “A little.”

Vector grinned. “I’ll make you something.”

“Thanks.” Kay smiled and pushed herself to her feet so she could join him in the kitchen. To her left was Espio, sitting motionless in an armchair, his eyes closed. He must have been meditating. Charmy had buzzed away to the upper level, so it was just her and Vector moving about below.

As she neared the kitchen, Kay realized she could hear music. It was hard rock, and now that she thought about it, she recognized the lyrics even though she’d never actually heard the song…

Grumbling, Vector reached over to a small white box on the counter and flipped a black switch. The music instantly stopped. It was then Kay realized where she’d heard the lyrics before. Or, more accurately, read them.

“Was that Mina’s new song?” she asked curiously. Vector scoffed.

“Yeah.”

Kay remembered reading the lyrics she’d just heard, only able to imagine the music that came with it. It had been in a more recent issue of the Sonic the Hedgehog comics, when Mina had come out with a new song after Nicole had been rescued from the Iron Queen’s control. The lyrics told how Nicole was a traitor, a dark force that frightened everyone. They also said that they (meaning the people of the city) wouldn’t be afraid of her any longer – that they would rebel against the computer-made lynx.

Nicole had left the concert in tears.

Frowning, Kay asked, “Why does everyone like it so much?”

“Beats me,” Vector mumbled. “I personally think she should go back to her old style of music. Hard rock is for us Chaotix, not her.”

“I meant, why do people like the lyrics? Don’t they know she’s dissing Nicole?”

“Yeah, and that’s why so many people like the song,” Vector replied, disgust evident on his long green snout. “Ever since the Iron Dominion thing everybody’s been on edge. And now that Naugus is wearing the crown…” he sighed. “Aurora save us.”

That provoked Kay’s curiosity. She knew about Aurora – she was a goddess figure to the echidnas. Kay wondered whether she was a goddess to crocodiles as well, or if Vector had just been around Knuckles for so long it seemed like a normal response to him. She’d have to ask him later.

“So,” Vector said suddenly, “you got any family?”

“Not anymore,” Kay replied.

“What happened?”

“Eggman separated us.” Kay paused, thinking of her passage through time. “I honestly don’t know where they are.”

“Maybe we can help you find ‘em. I run a detective agency, you know.” Vector winked at her.

“It won’t do any good,” Kay replied with a sad smile. “They’re long gone by now.”

There was a pause. Then Vector nudged her playfully, smiling. “Hey, cheer up. You’re with us now.” Kay returned his smile.

Just then, there was a knock on the door. Kay watched as Vector frowned and turned to face Espio. The chameleon had turned in his chair as well. The two exchanged confused glances before Vector called, “It’s open.” There was a pause. Another knock was heard. This time the two friends seemed wary of something. Espio rose to open the door.

He had barely opened it when Kay heard him gasp and saw him fly backwards across the room, slamming into the couch with a dull thud.

“Espio!” she and Vector cried together.

Doctor Eggman ducked under the low doorway and stood upright again once he was inside, his bald head almost touching the ceiling. He scanned the room momentarily, and when his eyes rested on Kay, he scowled. “I hope you’ve changed your mind, my dear, because you’re coming with me.”

Before Kay could reply, Vector stepped in front of her protectively. “I don’t think so, pal,” he growled.

“I have no fight with you. Stand aside.”

Vector laughed. “Yeah, right.”

Suddenly Eggman grunted, and Kay peeked around Vector’s large form to see what was happening. She saw that Espio had attached himself to the doctor’s back, his knife at the ready. Before he could act, however, Eggman elbowed him in the ribs, making him lose his balance. Then he grabbed the chameleon and swung him around once, letting him fly when the doctor released him. Espio hit the wall with a thwak and fell to the floor. He groaned.

Kay was too concerned for Espio to notice Eggman advancing towards her, an angry sneer on his face. Again Vector stepped between him and his target. “This is your last chance, you annoying Freedom Fighter,” Eggman warned. “Get out of my way.”

Vector launched himself at the doctor, his teeth bared in a frightening glare. He opened his massive jaws and prepared to clamp them onto Eggman’s arm. The doctor was clever, however, and moved aside before the crocodile snapped him. He then instantly began gut-punching the crocodile. Vector grunted over and over again until Eggman finally gave him a mighty kick in the back, sending him to the ground. The green detective didn’t move.

Then Eggman lunged for Kay. She darted aside quickly but clumsily, and she tripped over her own feet and landed on her back on the floor. While the wind was temporarily knocked out of her, Espio tried once again to attack the doctor from behind. Eggman swiftly and skillfully grabbed the chameleon and yanked him to the front, twisting the ninja’s arm behind him forcefully as he did. Espio cried out in pain and clutched at his shoulder. Eggman shoved him to the floor and reached for Kay, jerking her up from the floor as easily as if she were a pillow.

Kay struggled against him, but he’d had quite enough resistance, and he made that very clear when he brought her face-to-face and growled, “Unless you want your friends hurt even worse, I suggest you cooperate.”

Kay glanced at Espio’s moaning figure on the floor and felt her heart ache for him. She’d done this, and if she stayed she’d only do even more damage. So, reluctantly, she allowed the doctor to pull her from Freedom HQ and onto his carrier.

As soon as the door shut behind them, Eggman let go of her to sit at the control panel and steer them away. Kay took the opportunity to hurry to the window (since this carrier actually had one) and look down at the base she’d just been in. She saw Vector and Espio emerge from within, looking up at the ascending carrier in defeat. Vector made a fist and swung it angrily. Espio, still holding his shoulder, lowered his head in disbelief.

Kay watched them until the clouds prevented her from seeing anything but white.
