A Hedgehog Story

Chapter 1 Unexpected

"I kinda like the look." A blue hedgehog had commented. I panicked and rushed to a nearby creek, looking down to see my reflection in the ripples.

I was a hedgehog. It was after three days being here in this strange world filled with anthropomorphic animals, hills shaped as loops, gold rings, and seven mystical emeralds.

I shrank down a couple of inches, just a tad bit smaller than the hedgehog next to me. My brown long hair turned to long quails, black shaded violet at the ends. My ears moved to the top of my head, small yet pointy. My eyes were abnormally bigger, my pupils turned narrower, but my irises haven't changed. They were still green as a lush forest. I also had a little black nose and fangs for teeth, and I was still wearing the same attire when I was human, but they somehow shrunk to fit my new body. Magic? Possibly.

"How am I going to change back!?" I yelled at the blue hedgehog, not meaning to. After all, he helped me get to his world when Dr. Eggman, his enemy, attacked my home and kidnapped my little brother, Kyle. Currently we are on a journey to get him back.

"I can't help you with that. Whenever somebody in my world stays too long, they change into creatures like me. Besides-" The needlemouse made a wink. "If you're a hedgehog, you can run fast and attack like I do. We can get to your brother more quickly!"

I'd made a small smile. "Yeah, I guess so." Then it turned into a frown.

"Hey, don't make say it again!" The hedgehog teased, smirking. "Don't worry! Along with that, I'll always be there to help you. After all, we're partners!" Then he raised his hand for a high-five.

I raised my hand as well, soon slapping our two gloved hands together.

"Ch'yeah! Now were talking!" Then he grabbed the same hand he high-fived, and started to dash down a checker pattern hill that led to a roller-coaster-like loop.

I thought about a friend of mine at that moment. He was a big fan of this guy who leading me, heck, he even had most of his games!

Dylan was his name. If he was in my shoes, he'll be screaming and dancing full of joy. If he seen me now, his face would be the pure definition of jealousy.

Before this journey, I liked this blue hedgehog myself and bought a couple of his games. After I played, I realized why my friend made a big deal about him. But the thing is, how is this video game character real? Or this world?

Sonic was the blue hedgehog's name. And he is famously known as…

"Woohoo! I wish these loops would last forever!" Sonic yelled as we both ran up screaming.

Sonic the Hedgehog.
