In a dream, I can see... you are not far away...

Anytime anyplace I can see your face...

"NiGHTS, don't sing."

The nightmaren looked over at her brother. The two, along with some of their friends were heading back from a road trip to Nightmare. And she was bored.

"But I WANNA sing!"

"Yes, but when Jackle joins in, it just is annoying. Do you WANT me to crash and kill us all?"

"I wanna sing. Plus I'm bored. And plus plus, I have to go to the bathroom."

"I TOLD YOU TO GO BEFORE YOU LEFT!"

"I DID WE'VE JUST BEEN DRIVING FOR FOUR HOURS STRAIGHT!"

"NiGHTS..."

The group included NiGHTS, Reala, Puffy, Jackle, Silver the Hedgehog, Blaze the Cat, Sonic the Hedgehog, Shadow the Hedgehog, Fang the Sniper and Blaze the Cat, Rosy the Rascal and Licorice Bunny.

Shadow was sleeping in the back seat, not noticing the noise in the front seat. Fang was sitting next to Shadow, his hands over his ears, proving that he was aware of the yelling match between the nightmaren siblings. Silver was lying down with his head on Blaze's lap, his golden eyes getting a sideways view of the back of Jackle's cape.

Jackle was hovering between NiGHTS and Reala, trying to pick what side to take. Rosy climbed up to the front, onto NiGHTS' lap and turned so she was facing the two nightmarens.

"BOTH OF YOU SHUT UP BEFORE I SMASH YOUUU!"

"eek!" NiGHTS yelped out hiding her face with her hands.

"AHHH!" Reala cried out as his foot instinctively slammed down, onto the gas. The car swerved out of control, everyone in it screaming at the top of their lungs.

"BRACE POSITIONS, W E'RE CRASHING! " Jackle screeched out as the car headed towards a wall. The 'maren promptly covered himself with his invincibility cape, turning into a pile of white and orange fabric.

"Blaze? NiGHTS? Sonic? Anyone?"

Silver opened his eyes to see he was in a bed... but not one he recognized. Noting this, he became desprate for ANYONE he knew.

"BLAZE! SHADOW! FANG!"

A pause.

"REALA!" He honestly would have been happy to see even the nightmaren he feared so much at this point. The sound of some sort of warp-hole opening and then footsteps made the young hedgehog's spines bristle up with fear. He considered fainting.

Silver gasped as he saw a group of hooded people, all dressed in black, and despite his efforts to stay awake (having learned that falling asleep without knowing where Fang was was a bad idea), he felt the world fading away...
