Chapter Three

 

The city was larger than Kay had imagined it would be, but that didn’t make her experience any less enjoyable. Amy half-dragged her the entire way with Sonic following close behind, a tired smile on his face. They took her to the market, where several Mobians were trading their goods. Next was the library with its thousands of books, followed by the Lake of Rings, coliseum, school, hospital, and Civic Center. Amy left at the last stop, saying that she had promised to help Rosie set up for a meeting that night.

Finally, after having made a loop around the entire city and having seen just about everything there was, Sonic and Kay ended up outside of Chuck’s Diner.

“Phew! All this walking stuff wears me out,” Sonic sighed, wiping his brow tiredly. He jerked his thumb over his shoulder to indicate the diner. “I think I’ll step inside and say hi to Uncle Chuck. Want to come with me?”

How could she say no? “Of course.”

The inside of the diner was small but comfortable, with a friendly atmosphere lingering about. Sonic led Kay to the counter while she looked around, plopping onto a stool.

“Hey there, sonny,” a friendly voice said. Kay looked at the hedgehog behind the counter and smiled. He looked just the same here as in the books. “Who’s this nice young lady you got with ya?”

“This is Kay,” Sonic said, smiling as he introduced her. “Eggman was giving her a hard time this morning, so I figured I’d lend a hand.”

“Always the hero, eh, Sonic?” Chuck winked. Sonic shrugged with an innocent smile as his uncle turned to Kay. “Good to meet you.”

“Nice to meet you, too,” Kay replied politely.

“What can I get you two?” Chuck asked.

Sonic turned to Kay and grinned, making her blush a little. “Two of your famous strawberry sodas, Unc.”

“You got it.” Sonic’s uncle winked and disappeared. Kay felt Sonic’s eyes on her as she looked around once more. This entire city was so friendly and clean – nothing compared to where she lived. Just then, however, she noticed a familiar echidna sitting alone at one of the booths, hunching over a glass of brown liquid.

“Hey,” she exclaimed. Sonic followed her gaze and his smile grew.

“Hey, Knuckles!” he greeted cheerfully, abandoning his stool to join his friend. The echidna glanced over and a faint smirk appeared.

“Hey,” he said quietly.

“How goes it, red?” Sonic asked, leaning on the table.

“Good as ever, blue,” the echidna replied. His eyes traveled to Kay. “Who’s the new girl?”

“Eggman’s newest target,” Sonic replied before Kay could open her mouth. He put his arm around her. “I picked her up this morning during my run.”

The echidna looked into Kay’s eyes and mumbled, “Knuckles.”

“Kay,” she replied.

“Welcome to the city.” Knuckles raised his glass as if giving a toast, then tipped it back and finished off the drink. Kay smiled.

“Hey, sonny. You want these or not?” Chuck asked. Sonic bolted from Kay’s side and was back within a second, holding a drink in each hand. He gave one to Kay.

“Prepare to visit heaven. You haven’t lived until you’ve tried one of Unc’s strawberry sodas,” he told her. She smiled and took a sip. Then her eyes went wide with astonishment. Sonic grinned at her. “Good, huh?”

“This stuff is amazing!” she exclaimed, taking another sip. Sonic chuckled.

“Told you.” He turned to Knuckles, who had gone back to staring at the table. “Mind if we join you?”

“Not at all.” The red echidna motioned to the empty bench on the opposite side of the table. Sonic let Kay sit down first before following her lead. Knuckles continued to stare at the table.

“When are you heading back to Angel Island?” Sonic asked, trying to start a conversation. Knuckles scoffed.

“When Naugus is off the throne.”

“I hear you.” Sonic nodded. Then it was silent again. Kay watched as a look of concern crossed the blue hedgehog’s face. He asked in a gentler voice, “Hey, you all right?”

Knuckles lifted his eyes to meet Sonic’s. “Just thinking about my dad.”

Sonic gave a reassuring smile. “He was a good guy.”

“Yeah, he was.”

Kay remembered reading that story in one of her comics. Knuckles and his dad hadn’t been on the best of terms when he became the villain Enerjak, but even still, his father had given his life to rescue his son. Knuckles hadn’t been himself for weeks afterwards, but that was expected when losing a loved one.

“Oh, hey!” Sonic exclaimed suddenly, bringing Kay back to the moment. He looked at her. “Do you have any family that might be looking for you?”

Kay wanted to laugh. “Not here.”

“Anywhere?” Knuckles asked. Kay frowned as she thought about it. It was possible she could have had descendants, but they would be human, and even then that was 1000+ years…

“Not that I know of,” she said finally.

Knuckles sat up a little straighter, intrigued. “Where do you live?”

She simply shrugged in reply.

“You mean you don’t have a place to stay?” Sonic looked at her, worried. Kay looked away.

“Not anymore,” she mumbled.

Sonic sat back, disbelief written all over his face. He stared at Kay for a moment before turning back to Knuckles. “Have I mentioned that Eggman is a jerk?”

Knuckles smirked. “Maybe once or twice.”

“We should find a place for you at Freedom HQ,” Sonic said, standing up.

Knuckles held up a hand and said, “Hey, slow down. Give her a chance to finish her…” he trailed off when he looked back at Kay and saw her empty glass. “…soda.” He sat back and waved his hand indifferently. “Never mind.”

Kay laughed.

“You coming?” Sonic asked, already heading for the door. Knuckles glanced at his empty glass, shrugged, and stood.

“Got nothing better to do.”

“Cool. Come on.”

Kay hurried to catch up to the blue hedgehog, who was already walking outside. She put a hand on his arm and said, “Sonic, I don’t know what to say. You’re so nice to offer me a place to stay.”

“I guess I’m just a nice guy,” Sonic replied with a wink. Kay smiled.

“Thank you.”

He smiled back. “No problem at all.”
