O HAI. A NEW STORY. :D This one is co-written with my good buddy LovesAnimations1998! :D

Okay, this one is based off the music video for Nickelback's Savin' Me. Eeeenjoy. :D

OH, and I noticed I didn't do this in TSTNH (My other story) because I kept forgetting.

WE DO NOT OWN SONIC THE HEDGEHOG AND CO., THEY BELONG TO SEGA AND SONIC TEAM AND ANYONE ELSE WHO HAD TO DO WITH THE GAMES, COMICS, SHOWS, ETC.

Prologue

"Hey, watch where you're going!"

"Excuse me, please be polite!"

"Hey! Watch it buddy! You wanna start with me, huh?"

The voices of angry people filled the man's ears as he pushed his way through the crowd in Station Square.

He had to get to Sonic. And fast! 10:00... 9:00

The man watched as the numbers counted down. Eight seconds left... 7:00, 5:00...

Five seconds left! A bead of sweat trickled down his temple.

"You can run, but you can't hide, hedgehog." the man heard Eggman's voice ring out through the crowd of people.

"And I don't plan on hiding, Eggy!" he heard Sonic's voice. 4:00, 3:00

Three seconds left!

The gun charged up... but the hedgehog didn't move.

'What the...? Why can't I...' the hedgehog's thoughts were interrupted when a blinding light suddenly shone on the missile, freezing the hedgehog. The blue blur panicked as he struggled to get a reaction from his limbs, but they still wouldn't move. The missile fired...

2:00

The man jumped and grabbed the hedgehog with him, running out of the way.

1:00

They landed on the ground with a thud, the missile missing by an inch.

0:00

The man looked at Sonic quickly.

"Ugh... t-thanks..." the teen muttered, opening an eye. But he gasped when he did.

The man noticed this and smiled. "You'll see what the numbers are for in time..." and with that, the wise man got up and walked away, noting that the numbers were gone, and left for Sonic to see while Sonic was sitting there wondering what the heck just happened.

XXX

The hedgehog looked around him, the crowd staring back. It wasn't long before the humans lost interest and went about themselves. But something puzzled the teen.

The numbers. The numbers that were on everyone's heads. "Sonic! Sonic, are you alright? Why did you freeze up nack there?"

Sonic recognized the voice from anyone. Tails. But something caught his attention.

1/0/0 was floating above his head. "Uh, buddy...? What's on your head?" Tails scrunched his brow. "What do you mean?"

Sonic got up off the floor, and noticing Eggman was gone, he dragged his brother to a window for a building, where you can clearly see your reflection.

"Look. Above your head." Sonic said.

"Um... I don't see anything..." the kit said, obviously confused. The speedster faced his brother to look at him and he waved his hand above the kit's ears. Tails thought his brother had finally lost it.

I realized it had to be edited! It didn't really make sense... And just wait, the man that saved Sonic will be back, he is actually very important to the story! And if you're confused, just wait for next chapter, everything will be explained. I promise. Bye!
