World Leap Chap12 Part1His lips grazed mine before he stepped back: "You'll have to leave you know." He whispered.
I sighed: "Yes I know." He held me to his chest as I started to cry. "But I don't want too."
"I know but he's too strong right now, even for me and-"
"Yes, I know, you need to get stronger, so you can avenge their deaths."
"I'm sorry." I reached up and kissed him on the cheek, tears still running down mine.
"Don't be, I'll return home I'll finally have my normal life and everything will be fine. Maybe I'll even find a way to get rid of "
"Maybe when he's dead I will go."
"Maybe " I looked up at him, hope colouring my eyes. "I'll be safe, don't worry."
"I love you Mizuki An'ya."
"I love you too."
We were falling, happily entwined.
We were dying, together we were blind.
The sound echoed through my empty thoughts, making me feel dizzy. Did it beep in hell? Because I was pretty sure that was where I was.
World Leap Chap11 Part1Paws were never the best for opening doors and Eggman had kindly replaced his windows with a slightly harder to break glass, so I kindly took the message and destroyed the door instead. Much to the surprise of the robot standing behind, who seemed to be trying to open the door: just as I stepped in he pressed a button raising the tattered remains of the metal frame.
I ignored its stares as I ran past, needing only a few sniffs to follow Eggman's pungent odour.
I slowed to a trot as I entered the room he was in, the main room: arguing with a robot over the progress of control over Dark Gaia. It ended with a short mention of the Chaos emeralds before Eggman started cackling wildly.
I sighed: raking the newly fixed power box with razor sharp claws to bring him from his fantasies. It worked: much to my delight. There was a muffled grunt as Eggman fumbled for a switch before a new set of lights from presumably a backup power supply flickered on.
He turned towards me, face red, moustache bri
World Leap Part1 Chap10I stayed hidden, out of sight. Ebony had hopped off to search for food and find out about Sonic's location and had not yet returned. The moon was still high and my tail flickered like flame
I left the alley; made of red wooden walls reeking of old noodles and other various Chinese foods, and stalked into an empty courtyard.
'Here seems good,' I thought, striding into the centre. The area around me bubbled. Deformed beasts came out of the ground and I howled; egging them on. They howled with me, forming a circle around me; waiting.
My tail twitched gently. "Stir up some trouble. Cause some chaos and hunt down the blue hedgehog." The beast inside whispered. One bowed. It seemed to be the leader of the large platoon.
I twitched my tail again and a harsh wind blew through the clearing. They blew away like smoke, leaving nothing behind but a memory.
I turned without a second glance back, I did not doubt that they wouldn't attack me. The beast and I: We, were just an extension of their god o
World Leap Chap9 Part1"Quiet down will you?!" I whispered harshly. Ebony firmly shut her beak with an audible snap, and then opened it again.
"But-"I shut it for her.
"But I want to watch the sunset" I whispered, hinting; She got the full message after a quick uncertain glance at the setting sun.
I let her go. She hastily ruffled her feathers and hopped away. Creating as much space as she could between herself and I
I sat up and gazed at the sun as it started to dip over the horizon. My mind went blank as the mist started to swirl around me. Ignoring the pain I let it take over, the whispering thoughts that didn't belong to me, leaping off the branch, powerful hind legs propelling me spinning me toward the closest robot, digging my claws and peeling away its armour; leaving it sparking on the ground as I went for the next one.
Grabbing it with my tail swung it at two others, sending them flying like bowling pins. "Strike!" Ebony chirped as they bashed into a tree, I ignored her, snarling as another ran at m
World Leap Chap8 Part1Ebony had fallen asleep long ago, but I had sat there awake, staring at the stars. I used to have a great imagination, maybe I still did; I imagined dragons soaring amongst the glittering lights and fairies dancing there too.
But I couldn't distract myself from the truth, It wanted power, I wanted power. I wanted it bad. I wanted to do what my heart had always wanted, I wanted to do something new, I was sick of being unnoticed, standing at the sidelines, being the good little school girl who never got the perfect mark or the worse mark: only able to wish to be in the action, a chance had finally come and I was going to give it away? No, I wasn't going to give it up.
I wanted to be the bad girl. Just for once in my life I wanted to be the one who wagged school to graffiti the walls, the one who stole from stores and ran instead of getting caught.
I wanted to have a hand in world domination, no matter how cliché.
And I would, I had someone asking me to be in the action, for once in
World Leap Chap7 Part1I had learnt a long time ago, how to listen, how to learn. I wrote it all down in a pretty brown notebook with vines drawn with green gel pen on the cover.
We didn't travel often to see the rest of the world, the rest of the birds. But I looked it up, the tune, the volume. I learnt, and listened. I practiced.
But I hadn't practiced in a long time, occasionally my pitch was too high, or too low, my whistle a little off-tune. Disrupting the calm flow and steady thrum of wings and forcing me to start the whole thing again, making process slow and hard.
Sometimes a robot would pass underneath, but the thick brush prevented it from seeing me. Since it was too dangerous for me to go out and get stuff myself, in fear of getting caught like a teenager after curfew, I had constructed a plan to call the birds, to gather me supplies so I could at least build a rough shelter until I found some way of getting home.
I sighed, remembering the days when I sat in the tree in my backyard, studying the b
