Unsuspected Heroes Chapter 23

“Team Dark, report to The Commander’s office, now,” a voice boomed over the P.A. They all looked at each other.

“I have been keeping you in the dark about something for much too long,” Towers began. “I lied to you. I knew what Shadow and Project Chaos were going to do….”

“Why didn’t you just tell us?” Rouge asked.

“Because, I knew you were all friends with Shadow.”

“Key word were,” Knuckles said.

“He and Project Chaos were going to change reality.”

“What?!” They all exclaimed.

“Yes, they were going to change certain events in history,” he continued.

“Which?” Topaz asked.

“Isn’t it obvious, he was going to save her,” he paused.

“And Project Chaos?” Tails pushed.

“We never knew that for sure, not knowing anything about her, but if anything, my guess would be the experimentation,” he finished.

“But why?”

“Because those two only care about themselves, and are willing to do anything to make their lives better, even if that meant destroying others’,” he finished. He turned to face them. “Did Shadow tell you anything useful?”

“No,” Sonic answered quickly. “He just tried to get us on his side.”

“Are you?” He asked.

“We’re on the side of good,” he answered plainly. The Commander nodded.
