Jessie: LOL! I can't believe this. I made a prologue right after I made the first chapter of this story lol, if the chapter after this is explaining something, like when I first got into Sonic, it's because I made that chapter first. Well it's thanks to Echidna Girl! (hugs Echidna) You've been a great inspiration to me! So I'm dedicating this story to Echidna Girl!

Someone: Heh I get to make my appearance HAH!

Jessie: (pushes Someone out of sight) Hah no one knows the name hehehe except Echidna Girl of course. Oh yeah and um... The italics mean what the figure is hearing. And the regular text in between the italics is the figure's thoughts. And sorry if this is short! Oh and sometimes I might be redoing a chapter so watch out lol.

Disclaimer: I do NOT own Sonic the Hedgehog or any other characters from it. I DO own Nightshade, this story, and all of these scientists.

-----------------------------------------

A dark figure floated in glass tube, surrounded by greenish liquid. The eyes of the figure were closed as many scientists were swarming around it. Many voices were heard as each scientist made comments and remarks about their discovery. They had found the fourth experiment of Professor Gerald Robotnik. One that no one but he and his staff knew about. No one, until a group of scientists found the capsule on the beach. But now, in a ship that drifted around Earth, even though the figure was in suspended animation, it somehow heard the bits of conversations in its dreams.

(DREAM MODE)

"... Might make a perfect specimen to study."

Specimen? Who is that of which they speak? I can only see blurs and dark images. Who are they? Who am I?

"A great project the Professor made." "Yes true true!"

Who are these voices? Why can't I move?

"She will make a good weapon for the new Professor."

Weapon... WEAPON? I. Am. No. WEAPON! Not to anyone!

(END DREAM MODE)

The lights flickered on and off rapidly as the voices ceased. The scientists muttered nervously and one of them hit the switch bring the figure out of suspended animation. He backed away just in time to see the capsule exploded, sending glass everywhere. The scientists protected themselves the best they could do as they were showered on by glass. The green liquid splashed onto the floor, splattering their feet.

"It's awake!" a scientist cried as they all stared at the form that was now standing on the remains of the shattered capsule. Their eyes met those of ruby.

"Who am I?" the form asked, its voice cold and threatening. It glared daggers at the scientists. The lead scientist, one with brown hair and blue eyes, stepped forward.

"Your name is... Nightshade." the scientist said with a broad grin.

Jessie: Dang, I decided to give you the name of the figure lol. I was toying with the idea of not giving you the name heh. Heh and did any of you think it was Shadow even for a minute? Admit it if you thought that! (laughs)
