5. Chapter Four

Chapter Four

 

Sonic stepped inside the base as the doors slid open for him and spread his arms wide. “Welcome to the upper level of Freedom HQ.” Kay glanced around at all the computer consoles, lookout tower, and what looked to be a briefing area, with a podium and seven chairs in a circle. Sonic smiled at her awe and led her to the largest screen in the room, tapping it gently. “Hey, Nicole. You in there?”

There was a pause before then the screen blinked to life and text started to appear.

Hello. I am Nicole.

Sonic nudged Kay and nodded at the screen, indicating for her to reply. “Uh…I’m Kay?” she tried.

Welcome to New Mobotropolis.

“Thanks,” Kay replied. She felt a bit odd talking to a screen even though she was aware of who Nicole really was.

“How are you—” Sonic was cut off by a loud bleep, and red text said: Nicole is offline. Sonic’s shoulders slumped. “…feeling.”

“She didn’t mean it, Sonic,” Knuckles said quietly. Sonic nodded.

“I know. I just…I wish she would talk to us more.”

“She’ll come around.”

“Yeah.” Sonic looked totally crushed as he turned to Kay, and it made her heart ache for him. But then his eyes lit up again when he saw her and he shook his head. “Oh, the tour! Hello, Sonic.” He conked himself in the head and gave her a small smile as he started walking back the way they’d come. Kay followed him slowly, and as she did she turned to Knuckles. He, too, looked really defeated and worn-down. Kay frowned.

I must have arrived after the events of Sonic: Genesis, she figured. She hurried to catch up with Sonic’s quick pace and almost bumped into him when he reached the foot of the staircase leading to the lower level. Kay was almost deafened by the loud music that greeted her below.

“Hey, guys!” Sonic shouted to be heard over the noise. Kay noticed three figures directly in front of them, but only one lifted his head to acknowledge their presence. When his fierce gold eyes locked with hers, she felt her heart stop. He, however, stood calmly and walked to where the three of them stood at the foot of the stairs.

Knuckles sighed. “Thank Aurora you don’t get sucked into video games.”

The one who had stood, a purple chameleon, turned his attention to focus on the newcomer. “And you are…?”

Kay felt herself growing tired of introducing herself, so she decided to shake things up a little. Instead of simply saying her name, she bowed at the waist respectfully to the chameleon and said, “My name is Kay.”

The chameleon seemed pleasantly surprised at her greeting, and he thumped a fist into his palm as he bowed in response. “I am Espio of the Chaotix.” He stood back up and regarded her with interest. “Are you native to the Dragon Kingdom?”

“No, but I’ve visited once or twice,” Kay replied. She quickly recalled the two times she’d read about the kingdom in her comics. The first time was when Khan had gone back to divide the Four Houses and become King of the Free People. The second was when Eggman had gone to hunt down his traitorous nephew and drag him back to the Empire kicking and screaming. Her heart still hurt for Snively, who lay in solitary confinement while the rest of the world thought he was leading the United Federation Legion Base with Regina Ferrum.

Espio’s faint smile brought her back to the moment. “It is a pleasure to meet you, Kay,” he said. She returned his smile.

“Same to you,” she replied.

Espio turned his head to the side to address the others in the room, who had been busy trying to beat the crap out of each other in a video game moments before. “Before you start another round you should greet our visitor.”

The figures on the couch both turned their heads and then shot to their feet like rockets. Well, one of them did, anyway. The other simply started buzzing around.

“Hello, hello,” one of the figures, a large green crocodile, said with a grin. “Who might you be?”

Again with the introductions. Kay turned to Sonic. “If I say my name one more time it will have no meaning to me.”

“Uh-oh. We wouldn’t want that,” Sonic replied. He zipped to the crocodile and whispered something in his ear. Then he zipped to the other, a small bee. He was back at Kay’s side within seconds. The crocodile nodded and started towards her, holding out his hand.

“Nice to meet you, miss,” he said. “I’m Vector, head of the Chaotix Detective Agency.”

“I’m Charmy,” the bee piped up happily, waving. Kay waved back.

“Hi,” she said. Sonic put his arm around her, grinning.

“My new buddy got herself into trouble with Eggman this morning and needs a place to stay. Are any of the girls’ rooms open?” he asked.

Vector and Charmy exchanged nervous glances. “Well…” the crocodile finally said, “Sally’s is available.”

Sonic’s ears drooped. “Right. Of course.”

“No, Sonic,” Kay grabbed his arm to stop him from leading her there. “That’s…that’s wrong.” He looked at her. “I’ll sleep outside before I use the princess’s room.”

Luckily, Espio came to their rescue. “Sonic, Amy will attend the meeting tonight, will she not?”

“I think so,” the blue hedgehog replied.

“Then for tonight Miss Kay can use her room. We’ll worry about long-term plans later.”

Kay almost blushed at the formal title Espio used and told him, “Just call me Kay.”

“Speaking of the meeting,” Knuckles spoke up, “Sonic, we should probably get going.”

“Oh, yeah!” Sonic exclaimed. He looked at Kay. “You gonna be all right here with these guys?”

Espio stepped forward and said to her, “I assure you that you will be safe here. Should Eggman return, we will protect you.”

“Good enough for me.” Sonic beamed, grabbing Knuckles’ arm. The red echidna looked right at Vector.

“No rough-housing. That’s an order.”

Then they were gone in a sudden flash of blue. Vector crossed his arms and smirked. “You got it, boss,” he said before turning to Kay. “So, do you want to join us?” He motioned to the video game that sat on pause. Kay smiled and shook her head.

“I think I’ll just sit down for a while. Thanks anyway,” she replied.

Vector shrugged. “If you change your mind, just let us know.” Then, to Charmy, he said, “I’m gonna beat you this time.”

“Nuh-uh!” Charmy laughed as he buzzed back to the couch and grabbed his controller once more.

Kay found a seat on the opposite side of the room and leaned back, staring at the ceiling. Just today she’d met most of the main characters in her comics. Not only that – she was now the target of the main villain and had been saved by the main hero! Kay smiled to herself. This was definitely more exciting than her life back home, but she wasn’t complaining.

I’ve always wanted to be a real Freedom Fighter, after all.
