Rogue and Knuckles touched down at the end of the burning forest. “Now what?” Knuckles asked. The two of them looked for any signs of the others.
“Sonic? Tails? Anyone?!” Rogue shouted. Nothing. She turned to Knuckles. “Don’t even think it, they made it, they’re alive.”
“Rogue we can’t go looking for them, we have to find a way to stop Mephiles,” Knuckles replied.
“Stop him?! What do you mean stop him?! We can’t stop him, don’t you understand what Dark Energy is?!” She yelled.
“Yes, but we can’t just let him kill everyone, we have to try!” He yelled back.
“We’re not going to do the world any good if we’re dead!”
“Which is why I plan on not dying!”
“And how do you plan on doing that, he can disintegrate anything he touches, that includes you Knuckles!”
“So then I would let him touch me, Rouge-!”
“For the love of Chaos, would you two kiss already!”
The two of them turned to face the voice. “You guys are alive!” Rogue exclaimed.
Knuckles walked over to Sonic and whispered menacingly in his ear, “The only reason I am not knocking you into next Tuesday is because, I’m glad to see you alive.”
“Awwww, I’m glad to see you’re alive too rad red!” Sonic smiled.
“Any others?” Silver asked. Rouge shook her head.
“Give ‘em time,” Sonic said, looking back into burning forest, “They make it.”
“I really hope they do, for your sake, because you don’t stand a chance against me!” Mephiles laughed.
