From Sonic Retro
Story translated from Japanese
Translation by Windii.
Everybody will sometimes want to go on a self-interested journey alone...
One day, Tails went out on a trip by spinning his two proud tails.
It's not like he had a fight with Sonic or anything.
He had no particular place to aim for, he was fine as long as he had a trifling adventure that's different from the usual fare.
Tails was flying aimlessly through the blue sky with the brightly shining sun.
He flew at his fancy all around.
And after a short time, Tails finally found a place for adventures.
Under the floating clouds, he found a small solitary island in the center of a deep blue sea.
"It'd be great if there was something interesting on it..."
While having that thought in mind, Tails went down to the island.
It seemed like a very ordinary small island that looks no different from any other.
However, when Tails went down to the island, he learned that it's no ordinary island.
There were steel rails, made as if they were stretching across the whole island.
And there are no signs of the animals living on the island either.
"What could these rails be? It can't be Dr. Eggman, can it..."
When he thought this to himself, tremors circulated through the rails at his feet.
Feeling danger, Tails promptly leaped into a nearby clump of bushes.
What Tails saw was a single shadow that came along the rails.
It was a trolley shining in silver, becoming bigger and bigger before his eyes.
And in the trolley was a single fishy-looking human...
"Hyaahyahyahyahyah!! All of this island belongs to me, the great witch Witchcart! I'll turn all who oppose me into crystals! Now, my adorable henchmen, begin patrol! Don't let anyone who goes up against me get away!! Hyaahyahyahyah... Come on, get going!!"
The henchmen took off from behind the witch, riding flying machines.
Tails, who had been watching the whole thing from the bushes, had already made up his mind.
"I gotta do something... That's right, I can do this!! Even without Sonic, I can keep calm all on my own!!"
And so Tails energetically spun his two tails and took off!!
He flew off to the starting point of a great adventure to protect this strange island...
