On Angel Island, Knuckles sat in front of the Master Emerald as he did every day, except today he was anticipating Jenny's visit. A beeping from his cellphone caught him off guard. He was surprised to see it was Becky calling.
"Hello?" he greeted into the phone.
"Knuckles!" Becky yelled in a frantic voice, "Have you seen Jenny? Her boss called and said that she didn't come to work. Did she go to your place early or something? She's missing!"
"No, I haven't seen her at all today. Are you sure she's missing?" he answered anxiously.
"I'm positive. After her boss called, I rushed over to all the places she would go. Then I tried calling her cell phone, but she wouldn't pick up. Knuckles, I'm scared. Jenny would never act this way. What if she's lost or hurt?" the purple fox whimpered, starting to cry.
"Don't cry! I'll be over there and we'll find her, I promise. Where are you?" Knuckles tried to console the panicking fox.
"I'm outside the apartment bu

Omega and Shadow looked like they were about to attack, but Becky finally knew how to respond to his questions. "What does it matter to you whether I'm Knuckles or Becky? I'm just here to protect this thing," she pointed to the Master Emerald behind her, "Rouge tried to prevent me from doing my job."
Shadow glanced at Rouge, who was still unconscious in Omega's arms. "I don't know why it matters, but you are acting suspicious and my teammate has been beaten up. Do you expect me to just walk away without questioning?"
"Do you really want to know what happened? She basically came up to me, called me a freak, and started beating me. I didn't want a fight, but I didn't want to get hurt and watch her steal the Master Emerald. I'm telling the truth." Becky explained.
Shadow stared at her critically and looked to Omega. "What are the chances that he/she is telling the truth?"
"There is 85% chance that this is Becky and 98% chance that she is telling the truth." Omega said
The Beginning: Chapter ThreeChapter Three
After the party, Jake, Jenny,and I put the chao to bed and cleaned the apartment. It wasn't as bad as it looked, really. Our apartment is small, but it will do for now. It has a kitchen, a living room, a bathroom, and two bedrooms. Jenny and I share one of the rooms while Jake shares his with the chao.
"This was a crazy day." Jenny told me as we got ready for bed.
"Yeah, wasn't expecting an Eggman attack on your birthday." I answered as I slipped into my cot.
Jenny frowned. "That was poorly timed." she agreed.
"Mmmm-hmmm" I tried to say while fighting back a yawn. Something shiny caught my attention. "Where did you get that necklace?" I asked.
Knuckles gave it to me before he left. Do you think he would like to hang out with a girl like me?" She climbed into her own cot across from mine.
"Of course he would! He'll probably call you soon to set up the time and place." I reassured her before falling asleep.
About a week later, Knuckles still hadn't calle
Mobotropolis 1920sMobotropolis 1920s
People always expected the aftermath of a great war to be a time of quiet, peaceful reflection. This never happened, but it was always expected. Children who dreamed of the glory of war were disappointed to find it was over. So in the spirit of times they tried to keep that dream alive.
To control the constantly changing culture, traditional parents had announced the Prohibition, unintentionally changing what is yet to come…
The building in the town square of Mobotropolis looked innocent enough a building. It was where young Mobians went to dance and have fun. It was a way to escape their parents' traditional ideas, and it was a way to become modern.
Among the people who came to be modern and have fun were two girls. One was a tall hedgehog with red quills and emerald green eyes. The other was a purple fox with brown eyes and a blue tipped tail. Both of them had stylishly short hair and short, white dresses.
They emerged from the dance floor and walked ove

The Begining: Chapter TwoChapter Two
Three days after the party at Sonic's, Knuckles was cleaning the Master Emerald when his cell phone started ringing.
'What now?' he thought as he answered, "Hello?"
"Knuckles! It's an emergency!" Tails yelled through the phone, "Eggman has become a giant and he's terrorizing Emerald City! Get over here right away!"
"Right, I'm on my way." Knuckles replied shortly.
He dropped everything and ran as fast as he could, thinking, 'If it really is an emergency, then the newbies will be there, too. They won't know what to do."

Emerald City usually looked so pretty, with all the buildings rising in the sky so the sunlight glanced off the glass windows, making the city sparkle like a gem. The parks were always so green and flowery at this time of year. But with Eggman being a giant, the park was torn up and the buildings were breaking like toys in his hands.
As Knuckles expected, everyone was already at the scene. He ran up to them as swiftly as his legs coul
