Stories

Night Terrors!

Following immedately after the events of the last issue, the Freedom Fighters are mourning the death of Johnny Lightfoot, except for Sonic, who refuses to accept it. It appears that Johnny has come back to life, before swirling away in a sea of pink and turning into Amy, who reveals that Sonic was dreaming in his room. Sonic has slipped into a sea of melancholy and is blaming himself solely for Johnny's death. Amy tries talking some sense into the disheartened hero, but Sonic blows her off, saying he has been risking everyone's lives for years without thinking of the consequences, and knows what must be done.

Meanwhile, Grimer monitors the situation from the dark dimension and finds traces of Chaos, who has changed form, spread out over roughly half a mile and 20,000 feet above the planet, and is approaching the Floating Island. This stirs something in Robotnik's mind. Up on the Floating Island itself, Knuckles receives word from Amy that Sonic has left with no intention of returning. Suddenly, his transmission with Amy is cut short when a mysterious mist swirls around behind him, heralding the arrival of Chaos. Knuckles tries to confront the monster, but his fear effect takes effect on the echidna. Chaos, now speaking, reveals that the Chaos Emeralds are part of him and intends to become whole again. Knuckles tries to talk Chaos out of the idea, but fails as the monster begins to absorb the Emeralds into himself. Back in the Emerald Hill Zone, Amy and Tails prepare the Tornado in order to fly to the Floating Island, feeling that something awful is about to happen...
