Unsuspected Heroes Chapters 20 and 21

“Hurry! Power, we don’t have much time!” DJ yelled, running faster. They ran behind the city, right at its limits. G.U.N headquarters was at the edge of the city, protecting its northern border.

“Dude, we’re about to reach Mach 2! There is barely anything faster, we’ll get there,” Power answered.

“We have to get there, have to,” he murmured.

Power understood that DJ couldn’t tell him much about the future, or most the things he sees, but this one was different, he was really afraid.

DJ slowed to a stop. “We here?” Power asked.

“Depends on where ‘here’ is.” The two turned. A purple cat stood behind them, hands ablaze. They turned again, an albino hedgehog stood in front of them.

“We’re here to help…” DJ began. “I know about the future.”

“Who are you, how do you know about all this?” Blaze asked, not lowering her guard.

“You are all in danger,” DJ informed.

[Chapter 21]

He snuck he way into the base, “Alright future-boy, where am I going?” He whispered, through his communicator.

“Sector three, quadrant four, room-”

“Room thirty-six,” Shadow finished.

“How did you…?” Silver asked.

“It’s Team Dark’s workroom, and if nothing’s changed,” he grunted as he jumped off the celling. There was a small bang as his metallic soles of his shoes hit the metallic ground. “It should be easy to get there.” He went hallway by hallway, being careful. He stopped in front of doors. He could see their outlines.

“Why do they have to be so good at hiding?!” He heard Topaz exclaim.

“We’ll never find them, Shadow and Winter are probably, hundreds of miles away!” Sonic said.

“Not as far as you might think…faker.”

They all turned, “Shadow?! What are you doing here?”

“Do you have a death wish faker?” Sonic asked.

“Yeah great to see all of you to, we need your help,” he began. “Towers has been lying, Overpowereds aren’t the danger, he is!”

“Ok, you had me up till the point you said he was the danger,” Sonic stated.

“Towers is building a weapon of mass destruction; he’s going to destroy the entire city!” Shadow growled.

“What?!” Knuckles exclaimed. “Why would he do that?”

“Look, we don’t have much time, we need to find the weapon and destroy it,” Shadow finished.

“Where’s the rest of your party?” Sonic asked.

“Outside the base. Silver, we still don’t know where the weapon is,” he informed.

“Is Sonic on our side?” Winter asked. Shadow looked at the others. They all nodded.

“Yes.”

“Great, then get out of there, now!”

“Agents are headed this way,” Tails looked back at him, “Weapons raised.”

“Sorry Shads.” Sonic punched him, lunching him through the glass, finally hitting the hallway wall. Shadow growled before running off, Sonic hot on his tail. He ran out the base to nearly crash into a G.U.N Mech.

“Blast it,” he growled.  Sonic spin-dashed into his back. “Gahhh!”

“Shadow, what’s going on?” Silver asked.

“I’m under attack!” He answered.

“What did I tell you?!” Winter slashed the leg off the giant Mech with her sword. “Whoa!” Plants warped around the Mechs immobilizing them.

“Raaahhhh!” Power screamed as he burned the robots, red fire rings glowing.

“Make it convincing,” Sonic whispered. Shadow smirked. He punched Sonic in the stomach, sending him flying.

“You enjoyed that more than you should,” Sonic grunted.

“C’mon, let’s go before more Mechs get here!” Winter called. Shadow, Winter and Power broke into runs.

“DJ!” Power called. Thorny vines grow behind them.

“Yeow!” Sonic yelp.

“What the…?” Shadow asked. “Who’s this guy?” He gestured towards Power.

“You’re welcome for saving your butt,” he said sarcastically.

“We need to go, now!” DJ warned.

“What the hell is going on?! Who are these two? I wasn’t gone that long!” Shadow stormed.

“I’ll tell you when we’re safe,” Winter said, grabbing his arm, following the others.

“Guys, what’s taking you so long?” Silver asked. “You need to hurry, I’ve got no visual, there are no cameras in the woods.”

“Don’t need ‘em,” Winter whispered. “You guys keep going, I’ll make sure the agents don’t follow.”
