Chapter 4 Bootz vs Mina
Ah, your back. Didn't think any of you would decide to stick around and see what happened, but since you did how's about a recap? Last we left off our hero he was on line to a show being held by a popular pop idol named Mina Mongoose of the 'Forget Me Knots,' heh ... that's still a cheap laugh. Anyway, he decided to find an alternate route to sneak in so he and his two new friends didn't have to go though the long wait ... however unbeknown to him he was being watched by a program. Said program being a holographic lynx named Nicole, a problamaticly well built hologram but a hologram none-the-less. The two battled for a breif moment before getting interupted by another mongoose by the name of Ash, and boy was he pissed but not at our hero surprisingly enough. Sure enough though our hero made sure that he get angry for the right reasons rather than out of blind arrogance and ended up shutting him up, and if you ask me if I were to hear anything from him any longer I'd pretty much do the same thing ... but I digress. So you'd think the feline knocking him out would lead to more hilarity wouldn't you? This would depend on your definition of hilarity since it not only led him to more danger, but it led him to battle face-to-face with the very popstar he and his friends came to see. Hi-larious right? Well then, now that we got that out of the way hows about we join our hero as we find him just as we left off about to battle with Mina Mongoose.
"Wow that was a long winded intro-" Bootz starts out before seeing a purple flash coming straight at him, the feline dashing slightly to the side just being able to dodge the incoming strike. "Fuck, I'm still in the battle!"
All the while Mina just dashed toward our hero, aiming punches toward him as he kept on brushing them and dodging them. "Grrr ... stand still!"
"If I do that you'll hit me."
"That's the idea!" the popstar growled out as she jumped back and and pretty much shot herself at the feline at great speed, the feline ducking causing the mongoose the crash right into the equipment. " ... Ow .... "
"Aw jeez.." Bootz then says running over to the popstar, moving all the equipment off her. "You alri-" before he could ask her whether she was ok or not he was then greeted with a fist to his face, the hit hitting him dead on the nose. "Gah! Yup .... you're fine.." he says stumbling backwards, his foot hitting a slight switch unbeknown to our feline hero.
All the while we then cut back to our two heroiens, both Amy and Cream still waiting for Bootz to get back unaware what was going on. Cream holding onto Amy as the pink hedgehog sighed, slightly worried about the feline.
" ... Darn it all ... just where the hell is he..?" the hedgehog says aloud as she looks around.
"Will kitty be alright?" the bunny asks, the hedgehog smiling and patting her head gently.
"He'll be alright ... let's just hope we'll get inside before he gets in too much trouble," the hedgehog says with a slight smile before seeing a few rings forming in front of the two, the rings forming the lynx from earlier. "Nicole?"
"I'm glad I found you. Your feline friend, who is he?" the lynx asks looking left and right.
"Kitty? His name is Bootz, why?" Cream answers as she then covers her mouth a bit. "Is he in trouble..?" she then asks with a worried look on her face.
Amy then pats her head with a gentle smile. "Well if Nicole came to us I'm sure that he's safe, he probably got caught but I'm sure that he's not doing anything to attract attention."
" ... Then you probably don't want to look at that screen ... " the lynx then says pointing over to the screen behind them, the pink hedgehog and bunny then turning to the screen to find Bootz avoiding incoming attacks aimed towards him delivered by Mina.
"Oh C'mon!" the hedghog yells out with a facepaw as Cream covered her face with her ears.
As we then cut back over to the two, now on the screen so to speak, Bootz continued to brush off and avoid any incoming attacks, the feline making it look easy as he did so. "Not that I don't mind a good brawl but ... aren't you gonna be tired when you go to perfo-" he then gets inturupted by another fist to the face. "Gah! Ok seriuosly that gag is gettin old ... now I know how Dek feels.."
"Do you EVER shut up?!"
" ... Only when I'm awake," the feline answers with a shrug as he looks to the Mongoose. "Yeesh you were so cheery a bit ago."
"That was before you knocked my boyfriend into the wall!" the mongoose growled as she pants, worn out from throwing all those punches.
Bootz blinking as she starts getting tired, shrugging slightly. "I stand by my statement 'he was being a dick.' Sides its not like I killed him, I just decked him in the face .... that's not helpin' my case is it?"
The mongoose just shook her head as she started to charge up another spindash before charging straight at the feline, the popstar soon getting stopped with his hand causing him to go back a bit before pushing her back into the clutter of equipment she fell into earlier. "Gah! You creep!"
"Yeesh ... how are you able to have super speed? I thought only hedgehogs were capable of that?" the feline questioned raising an eyebrow. " ... Well ... not all hedgehogs I suppose but the one I know-"
"Alright I've just about had it with you! Just who are you? What are you doing here and just why the heck are you trying to sneak into the show? And why is my boyfriend unconcious with a bloody face?!" she then growls out, the feline blinking and messing with his fingers as he did so.
"Well ... in that order: I'm just a random feline, I was originally here with some friends of mine who wanted to see your show, I snuck in here cause the line was too long so I decided to find a short cut and as for your boyfriend .... umm.." as he got to the subject of her boyfriend he blinked and scratched the back of his head. "Saying he's a dick has lost all validness hasn't it?"
"Ok fine, originally he wasn't the first one to catch me. Apparently that lynx, whatever her name be, caught me and we were about to go at it before he inturupted. When he did he pretty much scolded her for absolutely no reason other than his blind arrogance so ... in short he was just being an arrogant twat," the feline finishes before feeling a loud and hard clank coming from his torso, blinking as he looked down to find Mina having just about enough of his explanations before pulling her fist back as the punch did absolutely nothing but hurt the popstar's hand.
"Gaah!! You stinking creep!" she yells out holding her hand. "Ooooww!"
The feline blinked having no idea what was wrong before feeling around his torso, soon realizing something was there. He then dug into his shirt before pulling out a plate of metal that had dents and scratches on it, originally used to straighten out an earlier wound. "So that's where that went ... Tornado was lookin' for this," he says before looking to the popstar. "Uhh ... you ok?"
"No, you jerk, you broke my hand!" she yells out shaking her hand, cringigng in pain.
"Oh ... ouch ... well that wasn't supposed to happen soo you get a free hit."
" .... Seriously?" the popstar then asks as the feline nods with a smile, dropping the metal plate down onto the ground. Mina grinned almost evilly before she clenches her fist punching him dead in the chest only to get shot with a sharp pain as it appeared that the punch toward his chest resulted in the same affect but without the metal plate. "Ooooooow! You stinking .... Meanie!"
"What I didn't have anything blocking me that time," Bootz then says feeling around his chest a bit feeling nothing. "Nope, nothin there."
"What are you some kinda robot?" she says groaning out in pain, the popstar growling at the feline.
"Well no no but-"
"Liar, I hit you and you felt like metal .... either that or you're some kinda friggin super powered freak or something ... ow.." she says with a hiss as the popstar holds her hands, the feline raising his eyebrow before blinking.
"Well this is akward, well I'll just be leaving now," Bootz says with a nervous smile as he backed away slowly, looking behind him to see if anybody was there.
Mina on the other hand wasn't ready to let him off that easy however as she then lunged at the feline. "Oh no you don't!" she then growls out before grabbing the feline's bandaged hand only to be hit with a violent surge of electricity, soon fainting from the pain.
"Oh fuck! Hey you alright? Miss!" the feline then says kneeling down to the fallen popstar, leaning down to check if she had a heartbeat. "She's still breathing, good ... sonuva bitch!" he then growls out pulling the bandages along his forearm and hand. "Can this get any worse?" he says before the feline heard a gunshot, the bullet ricoceting towards the feline just missing the fallen popstar. "Shit! What the-?!"
"That's him! That's the flying kitty!'
A familiar voice called out, the voice belonging to a familiar duck who wore a bandage along his head accompanied by a yellow bear as well as a purple weasle wearing a brown hat, brown gloves, brown belt and brown boots. The weasel smirking as he looked to the feline not thinking much of him on first sight while the polar bear cracked his knuckles. "Is he now ... mate doesn't look like much though," he comments as the green duck fidgets around rubbing his head.
"I'm tellin' ya boss, that flying kitty almost squashed me!"
"Yeah yeah, just get the supa' star." the weasel says as bean goes over to the fallen mongoose before Bootz stops him in his tracks standing in front of him.
"Umm ... just what do you idiots think your doing? And on top of that why isn't the bear sayin' anything?" the feline asks as the yellow polar bear growls cracking his knuckles
"Who 'im? 'e's mute, mate." the weasle answered as the feline just facepawed.
"Nice ... a trial and error kinda thing. Oh well, look no offence you guys but you might as well just get outta here now cause she's down, a buncha people are knocked out, a couple people I know are gonna be pissed if I don't get back so you might as well just ge-?!" the feline was then inturupted by a lazer shot that was aimed towards his face, the feline stumbling back as the shot hit.
"You talk too much, mate.." the weasle said with a slight chuckle as the polar bear grunted and grinned while the duck laughed almost miniacly, the laughter then getting cut short as the feline brought himself back up, the feline pulled off his damaged glasses and tossed them aside. The shot appearing to have only grazed him as a bit of blood drips down the side of his face, the shot just grazing the side of his eye.
" ... You're lucky those were for show and that I have a spare.." the feline starts out before shooting the three a cold look as if he could've killed the three right there. "But you're really startin' to piss me off ... now I'll ask nicely .... beat it or there'll be conciquences," he finishes as the weasel then gets a cocksure grin before looking over to Bean.
"Bomb 'im, mate."
As the weasel gave the duck the order, he grinned widely and eagerly, the duck soon pulling a bomb out of nowhere about to throw it before he saw the feline dangerously close to him facing him eye to eye before he knees the duck in the stomach before aiming a kick to the duck's face sending him backstage before he aims another kick sending the bomb his way before it detonates. As the two remaining goons saw this the wease' stands in shock and horror, the polar bear however looked in shock soon turning to the feline in anger as he growled and grunted angrilly.
"Y-your lucky that he's accustomed to 'is own ammo ... " the weasel starts out, before looking to the polar bear. "Bark! Get 'im!" he then calls out as the polar bear happily obliges, growling at the feline.
Bootz on the other hand just grinned going into his shirt, his grin getting wider as he pulls out a C.D. "An ocassion like this calls for some bad ass music," he says walking over to what seemed like a D.J. booth sliding the disk inside, the music starting to play leaving an evil grin upon the feline's face. "Ok, now that I got my bad ass music goin ... time in."
The yellow polar bear, just about loosing his patience with the feline then charges toward him aiming a hammer punch down toward the feline. Bootz just dodges it by jumping back as he then sees another fist aimed toward his head, the feline then dodging the hit by dashing to the side before aiming a knee to the polar bear causing him to stumble backward a bit before catching his footing. Bark only growls as he pops his jaw back into place, cracking his knuckles as the feline smirks brushing himself off as well as his bandaged claw.
"Crikey .... this guy's nimble ... " the weasel says before looking over to the unconcious popstar, grinning as he makes his way over to her.
All the while the polar bear keeps attacking the feline, the feline now barely being able to dodge his attacks before getting hit in the torso with one of the polar bears punches getting sent back a slight bit before he could catch his own footing. " .... Damn .... heh ... should've kept that metal plate in there ... none the less," he then grins and gets in a peculiar stance where he stood on his toe holding one leg up in a muy-tai like stance as he looked to the polar bear motioning for him to attack as he held his hands out, one out foward and the other hand behind him in a ready position. Bark, not willing to take any chances at this point, charges at the feline with an angry grunt raising both his arms up for a smash attack soon bringing his arms down in a hammer like fasion the moment he came within distance to execute the attack. The polar bear then looked up only to find the feline just above him before getting struck with a devistating kick to his collar bone causing the bear to grunt loudly in pain, the bear stunned before the feline then aims a spinning drop kick toward the opposing bear's head causing him to fall head first into the ground with the impact causing him to spin backward making him then fall onto his back completely knocked out. As Bootz landed on his feet, the feline grins widely before catching a glimpse of the weasel about to make his way with the popstar.
"Blimey!" the weasel cries out turning over to see his best heavy hitter on the ground out cold, growling a he looks over to the feline. "You're a lot more trouble than I gave ya credit for mate ... I'll make a note not ta underestamate ya again' ... don't suppose you can just let me go can ya? Didn't seem like you were on good term's wit' 'er anyways."
"Doesn't mean I want her kidnapped, so why not do the smart thing and let her down will ya?" the feline pleads, the feline shrugging as he then started to make his way over to the weasel.
Unfourtunately the weasel wasn't prepared to go down as he then pulled out his gun, holding the unconcious popstar over his shoulder. "Sorry mate, can't do that. Now how's about you stay right there ... otherwise I'll blow your brains out.." he says with an evil grin, his grin soon turning into a slight look of confusion as he then saw the feline going thruogh all the equipment only to pull out a crowbar. "What's all this then?"
"You're THAT sure of yourself eh? How about this, if this crowbar hits you before your gunshot you gotta let her go. If not then you win, how 'bout it?" the feline says as he witnesses the weasel's grin as he looked to our feline hero.
"I accept!" he then says firing his gun, the weasel turning around about to make a run for it. However, he then felt a sharp pain hit him in the back of his head, the sharp pain soon overwhelming the weasel causing him to drop the popstar and fall to his knees. "Gaah!! N-..no way.." he grunts out hearing the thunk soon turning to where he heard the sound, the weasel's eyes going wide as the thunk turned out to be from the crowbar the feline had had a minuite ago.
"I believe that means I win, looks like your goin' down," the feline says as the weasel holds the back of his neck, growling angrilly as his pride had taken the biggest hit as it would seem as he then pulls out another gun from his other holster.
"Not a shot!!" he then growls out as he pulled the trigger, the weasel just missing as the feline dashes to the side just enough for him to grab the gun that was dropped as well as grab the unconcious mongoose by her shorts grabbing her and pulling her into a pile of random equipment.
"Sorry miss Mina but you're gonna have to stay there a bit," Bootz then says taking a look at the oddly modeled gun. "Huh ... shouldn't be too hard to use," he then says walking in plain sight watching the weasel get up, looking to the feline angrilly. "So, think you'll be giving up anytime soon?"
The weasel growls angrily holding up his gun aimed to Bootz, growling angrily as he was about to squeeze the trigger. "You must be outta your mind mate, do you have any idea who you're dealin' with?!"
"No and I really don't care."
As the weasel heard his answer another blow to his pride was struck as he started shooting towards the feline's legs, the feline just barely able to dodge them. "The name's Nack ... Nack the Weasel, I've tangled with the best in my age ... I'd ratha' be shot than to be humiliated by some kid," he growls out as he kept his gun aimed at Bootz, the feline all of a sudden doing the same.
"Well then allow me to introduce myself, the name's Bootz. Bootz the Alley Cat," he then says pulling the trigger, shooting the gun out of the weasel's hand and then shooting again at his leg. As the shot collided Nack yelped in pain, falling to the ground holding his leg curled up in the fetal position. "Make sure you never forget the name," he then says tossing the gun to the side, sighing as he walks over to the pile of equipment that he had left the unconcious popstar soon blinking as he saw her slowly getting up.
"Uuugh ... ow ... what the heck ... You!" the mongoose then growled out before stomping over to the feline. "You'll pay for what you did just now you creeeeeee ..... eeep?" she then says as her eyes widened to the sudden bodies on stage, one crying out in pain, the other knocked out cold and one other soon comming from the backstage coughing and covered in black soot.
"Wow ... I really outdid myself on the boom ... " the duck then said before coughing and falling unconcious.
"What did .... how did ... just get out."
"Eh? But what about-"
"GO! If I see you again I'll press charges and make sure you stay locked in a prison cell, do I make myself clear?!" the popstar growled out as she then witnessed the feline rubbing his ears a bit.
" ... Crystal ... yeesh for a supposed beloved popstar you're one hell of a pre-madona," the feline then says about to head off before turning back over to the mongoose. "Oh yeah by the way .... these assholes were trying to kidnap you while you were unconcious. At the risk of sounding self rightious ... your welcome," he then says then mumbling a bit leaving the popstar to only look at the fallen mobians before her, sighing heavilly and keeling down unsure what to do. We then cut to the feline sighing as he went out the same area he had snuck into, looking around to see if anybody was there only for him to be tackled by a young bunny.
"Kitty! You're ok!" the bunny says leaving the feline to blush, Bootz patting her head before he then looked over to a rather anoyed Amy Rose.
"Not for long he wont!"
"Hey hey hold on! Whats up?!" he then asks before the pink and frustrated hedgehog points over to a big movie like screen outside the stadium, the screen showing just about everything that had happened while the girls had waited out for him. "Oh boy ... "
"Yeah. 'Oh boy..' indeed," she then growls out before sighing a bit. "Well just be glad that it caught everything that happened otherwise you would've had a riot on your hands for attacking Mina ... not that she didn't earn a kick in the face just now.." the pink hedgehog says rolling her eyes a bit. "Regardless that was stupid what you just did, thank god you didn't get seriously hurt aside from- Oh goodness," Amy then says sighing noticing the blood still trickling from his earlier wound from Nack, pulling out a band aid placing it along the cut.
"Nice to know you thought of me," Bootz then teases before the hedgehog nudged him sticking her tongue out, pointing over to Cream as she kept hugging the feline.
"Regardless .... we're not the ones you gotta worry about right now.."
"Eh? Well if I don't gotta worry about her rabid fans trying to kill me let alone the 'pre-madona' herself trying to kill me then who DO I have to worry about?" the feline asks with a shrug, kneeling down and gently pulling Cream off his leg.
"Ever heard of the 'Freedom Fighters' sugar?"
"No, not that I know o-" as Bootz turned his he then witnessed another bunny of sorts, this bunny however wearing a brown hat, brown jacket with bright orange fur wearing a pink leotard. The bunny having long hair just going past her waist seeing her green eyes immediately seeing her cybenetic legs and left arm, the feline blinking and blushing as he saw her while she had her arms crossed looking to our feline hero with a firm look. " .... God, I miss my bunny ... "
What a sinario eh? The first time we see the Freedom Fighters and he's pretty much on their most wanted list, not bad for his first day huh? What'll happen to our feline hero now that he'll soon be within the custody? Well for now you'll have to wait till next time to see what happens next, till then folks.
