The Search for Knuckles
Author's Note: This is just anothere pathetic attempt at a fanfic by a bad writer. This fic is dedicated to the coolest Sonic the Hedgehog character, and my favorite, Knuckles.
Disclaimer: I don't own Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, any echidnas, any hedghogs, or anything else of Sonic. *sob*
"Sonic, where the heck are you?" shouted Tails from the front door of their house. "We really need to get going!"
"Wait a minute!" called Sonic from his room upstairs. "I'm putting on these new shoes Shadow gave me last week. He says they're really fast."
"Well, hurry up anyway!" replied Tails. They were going to visit Rouge the Bat, who had been in mourning ever since Knuckles had disappeared three months ago. They didn't know it, but she and Knuckles had apparently cared about each other quite a lot since the whole ordeal with the Chaos Emeralds. Shadow was still alive…somehow. No one was quite sure how he was alive, and he wouldn't tell anybody. So they had given up asking him. Dr. Eggman had dropped the truce that he had with Sonic, and, although he had new respect for him, had left to create a better robot to defeat Sonic.
"Okay, I'm ready," said Sonic, shooting down the stairs and out the door in a flash of blue light. Tails spun around quickly, stopped, and ran out the door behind Sonic.
About 15 minutes later they reached Rouge's house. She opened the door and let them in. They entered and sat down on the couches. After an hour of talking, they got up to leave. At that moment, however, the door burst open and a tan colored echidna burst into the room.
"Tikal!" shouted Sonic, shooting over to the girl lying on the floor. She was covered with scrapes, scars, and blood.
"Get…away," she stuttered. Sonic stepped back. "You must…get away from…here. They…got…Knuckles…you must get…away."
"Slow down!" shouted Rouge, jumping up. "Where do 'they' have Knuckles?"
"Tikal, hold on!" shouted Sonic. He picked her up gently and sprinted down the road to the nearest hospital. She was immediately taken by EMT's into the ER, while Sonic, Tails, and Rouge waited outside. About an hour later, one of the doctors walked out.
"I'm sorry to inform you that Ms. Tikal has just passed away. However, I have noticed that the damage to her, although bad on the outside, merely reflected what had happened to her on the inside. Most of her blood was gone and she did appeared to only have one lung. I am surprised that she was able to even make it as far as she did."
"Oh my God," stammered Tails, as both his tails drooped to the floor.
"Any idea what happened to her, doc?" asked Sonic, as Rouge tried to comfort Tails.
"No, I have no idea how she got all this damage, but I have determined that she had recently been in the desert. She had sand all over her body."
"Where are we going?" panted Rouge, as she and Tails ran after Sonic.
"We're going to hop a jet to the desert," replied Sonic without turning around.
"W-why?" shouted Tails from behind.
"That's where Tikal was before she came back here."
"Oh! Let's go, then."

"Seems like you didn't have much fight in you, you worthless animal," said the tall man stepping from the shadows.
"Let me go!" shouted Knuckles, trying in vain to pull free from the chains that held him to the wall.
"You are going to stay here. We need you out of the way until we can find the Master Emerald. We'll get paid big money for that gem."
"You're an idiot," retorted Knuckles, laughing. "If you think killing me is going to get you the Master Emerald, I think you've lost it. I don't even know where the Master Emerald is."
"We already knew that. The point is that, without its protector, it'll be so much easier for us to get the gem without trouble. And once we get the Emerald, we will have enough money to take control of the planet."
"My partner Rouge will keep it safe even if you get rid of me!"
"We can deal with that, Knuckles."
"Oh shit…don't you touch her!!!"
"What can you do to us?"
"Just don't…HOLY SHIT!!!" Knuckles shouted as the chains began to pulse with electricity.
"You will not escape," said the man, exiting the room as Knuckles began to shake with electricity.
That's it for the first chapter. If you guys R&R, I'll get up the second one. Please Review!!!
