"I wanna take the ultimate step, find the courage to be bold.
To risk it all, and not forget the lessons that I hold.
I wanna go where no one's been, far beyond the crowd.
To learn the ways to take command; Use the power that's in my hand!" - Pokemon World
Thinking of you, wherever you are...
Last time, our heroes arrived in Twilight Town to see the enigmatic Master Yen Sid. He told Lucky that his skills with the keyblade were insufficient, and suggested in remain in Twilight Town for his own safety until the threat of the Keyblade War had passed. Meanwhile, Whisk received an offer to get some magical training from Merlin, and left for a new world to take advantage of the opportunity.
Tails also had to think about resuming his own quest on his own, so Lucky was left by himself for a while. Meeting a boy named Sora, they fought off an attack from Zeke and Zim together, and encountered Garland, who warned Lucky that nothing could stop his goal of creating what is known as "Chaos Hearts."
Realizing that someone has to stop Garland, and given courage by his meeting with Sora, Lucky returned to Yen Sid to ask for training. The wizard agreed to give Lucky what help he could, and Tails decided to stick nearby so that Lucky could rejoin him in the end after all...
While Lucky was training, Tails met in secret with the Sonic from his world, revealed to be a more sinister hedgehog named Scourge...
Now, let us journey to a new world...
Lucky was met by a big, excited hug as he stepped into Master Yen Sid's chamber. "Aaah! Huh? ...Whisk!!" he smiled, blushing lightly before hugging back. "It's been weeks! How have you been, Lucky!? Are you eating well? You feel skinnier..." she babbled, poking his belly and making him laugh ticklishly. "Stop it! If I'm lighter it's from all the training I've been doing! Hehe! Right, Tails?" he said, turning to the fox as he entered the room behind him. "Ah... Hi, Whisk. I want your opinion. How does my shield look?" he asked, showing the new paint job he gave it. The front looked a lot like a bumper from Casino Night Zone, with a big star in the center and bright colors surrounding it. Whisk chuckled softly. "Cute..." she smiled. Tails frowned. "Gahh... That's not what I was going for..." he mumbled. Lucky smirked and gave his keyblade a swift swing, getting it parried by the shield! "Hah! Look, Whisk! See how strong we've gotten!?" he grinned. Whisk smirked as well. "Break it up you two! Blizzara!!" she cast, freezing the ground beneath their feet and making them slip! "Whoa!! Ooof!!" they cried, stumbling. "Haha! My magic's been upgraded, too!" Whisk grinned. Master Yen Sid cleared his throat loudly, giving them a piercing stare from his seat. Their faces all went bright red as they scrambled to stand up straight in a row in a respectful manner. "Uhhh... S-sorry, Master Yen Sid! We'll mop up that ice later!" Lucky babbled. The sorcerer chuckled softly. "No, you have been kept from your journeys long enough. Now that your trio is reunited, the time has come to venture forth once more. I am trusting you with this mission: stop the knight known as Garland from achieving his dark goals. The three of you are stronger together, so help one another." he stated. Lucky gave a salute. "Of course, master, sir! You can count on us!" he said. "What's a Garland?" Whisk asked. "We'll fill ya in later..." Tails murmured. Yen Sid nodded slowly and gave a small smile. "Best of luck. May your hearts be your guiding key." he said as his words of parting. With that, the trio finally set out for a new adventure!
The trio finally returned to the Galestrom, finding Winston outside the ship, bidding farewell to Winslow. "Hopefully I survive to see you again, kupo..." Winston murmured. Gator and Travis were also standing nearby. "So, you three are setting out again? Well, take care, all of you! I hope I see you again, safe and sound!" Travis said with a warm smile. "Don't get 'norted! I got 'norted once... How did I get outta that? Gaaah, am I still Xehenort!?" Gator babbled. Travis sighed. "That...never happened. Calm down. You're fine..." he mumbled. Lucky chuckled softly, and he waved good bye to them as did Whisk and Tails. "Maybe find us yourself next time, Travis..." he said wryly. "Not that we don't love seeing ya, Gator..." Whisk smiled. With that, the trio climbed aboard the Galestrom along with Winston, and got to their familiar seats. "...So... Where to, kupo?" Winston asked. Tails scratched his head. "Good question... I couldn't get the parts to build a new detector, so we can't track Garland by the heartless..." he murmured. They all slumped back in their chairs with dumb looks on their faces. "Maybe we should've asked Yen Sid to draw us a map before heading to the ship..." Whisk grumbled. A moment of silence followed, and Lucky sat up thoughtfully. "...May your heart be your guiding key..." he murmured. He held a hand over his heart, and after a moment, he materialized the keyblade in his other hand. "The keyblade... Yes..." he murmured, stepping to the front of the ship. "Where are you going, kupo?" Winston mumbled. Pointing the keyblade, Lucky found a light emanating from it, which left the ship, and burst upward, creating a wormhole outside the atmosphere of Twilight Town! Everyone jumped to the windshield to get a look. "Whoa!!" they gasped. "Ooof! You're squashing me, guys!" Lucky grunted against the glass. "The keyblade is guiding the way?" Tails wondered. Everyone quickly returned to their seats. "Guess we won't know until we follow the path, kupo... Buckle up... This could be a bumpy ride..." Winston said nervously. With that, the Galestrom started to lift off the ground, and then made a sharp turn upward, into the wormhole, as Travis and Gator waved farewell below.
Upon landing in the world the Keyblade had pointed the way to, and stepping out of the ship, the trio were startled as Whisk's wand started to glow. "Ahh!! Already?! M-merlin prepped my wand to transform us, if...aaah!" she gasped as light automatically covered them and transformed their bodies! They were all still technically cats and a fox, but they seemed a bit smaller. Lucky had taken on a greyish-blue hue, and had a gold coin stuck on his head. Tails had turned into a sort of black fox, with some red fur highlights. He still had his two tails, but his shield felt a bit heavier. Whisk was also a grayish feline, with kind of a twirly spiraled tail. Her wings were gone, and she dropped her wand. "Ahh... N-no... I wasn't ready...for... my magic... ahhh!! Wh-where am I??" she stammered. Lucky looked at her with alarm. "Mee-yow! What's wrong, Whisk?" he asked. "Her magic is tied to her wings, as is her memory. No wings, no magic, no reliable memory!" Tails stammered. Lucky picked up Whisk's wand and pocketed it. "Are we stuck like this without her magic? Wait, forget that! Whisk, stay with us! We're right here!" he said, stepping next to her. "I-I'm gonna forget you... No, I don't wanna forget...!" she said, welling up with tears. At that moment, a boy dressed in a red coat and cap stepped through the nearby tall grass. "Whoa... A Glameow, Zorua...and is that Meowth a different color?! Maybe it's a shiny!" he murmured. "Keep your eyes on me, Whisk! We'll figure this out!" Lucky insisted, astonishing the boy further. "He can talk! ...He might be worth using the Master Ball..." he murmured, pulling a purple and white ball with red spots from his pocket. He threw the ball right at Lucky, and before he could react, it had opened up and pulled him inside! "MEEE-YOOOOW!!" Trapped inside the ball, Lucky panicked for a moment, but then his keyblade emerged. "I'm not staying in here!" he grunted, pointing the blade in the direction he'd entered and unlocking the ball from inside... In a moment, he was beside Whisk again, and the ball was on the floor! "That wasn't funny!" he snapped at the boy.
The boy picked up the ball, looking at it awkwardly. "Why didn't the Master Ball work? I guess a Meowth would be dumb to waste it on, anyway, but..." he murmured. "You would trap a kitty cat in a little ball!? Seriously, kid??" Lucky snapped. A small, yellow rodent with red circles on his cheeks and a lightning bolt shaped tail stepped out from behind the boy, looking a tad irate. "Pika! Pikachu!!" it snapped, as though yelling at Lucky. "Huh?" he mumbled. The boy rubbed his head. "Yeah, I guess some Pokemon don't like Poke Balls... That's why I let Pikachu wander free of his." he said. "Pokemon? What's a Pokemon? Who are you?" Whisk asked dizzily. The boy looked at her with concern. "Well... Pokemon are...Pokemon! They're what you are! Trainers like me catch Pokemon and battle them to make them stronger! Pikachu and I are aiming to become champions one day!" he said, which Pikachu gave a pumped-up cheer for. Tails crossed his arms. "I see... So you treat animals in this world like tools for your sport. Your own amusement..." he murmured. The boy gasped. "What? No, that's not it at all! My Pokemon and I are friends! I think we got off on the wrong foot... Ahem... My name's Red!" he said with a small smile. "Hey there, Red. My name's Zeke! RAWR!!" Looking around, Lucky saw a dragon flying above, but it looked different from how Zeke normally looks. Different shades of green, with big red bug eyes and green wings outlined with red as well. "A Flygon??" Red stammered. Zim jumped off Zeke's back, and Red gasped to see him. "What's up with that Elekid??" Zim resembled a small Pokemon that normally was yellow with a plug-shaped pair of horns on its head. However, Zim retained his usual blue color, and his horns were crooked. "Zim is here to take the Master of Balls! Give up, or face our dark wrath!" he sneered. As Lucky clutched his keyblade, heartless started to emerged around them. They resembled green dinosaur-looking dolls, with the heartless emblem on their bellies and sinister glowing eyes! "Aaah! Th-this is the freakiest substitute attack I've ever seen!" Red stammered. "They're heartless... Stay behind us, kid, and whatever you do, don't let them take that ball!" Lucky warned.
The Substitute heartless were not very mobile, and certainly not prepared for Lucky and Tails after the training they had done together over the past couple weeks! With a clash of keyblade and shield, an escape route was cleared, and the group fled past Zim as Zeke landed beside him, looking frustrated. The group fled fast, arriving at the gate to a city before they stopped to rest. "Alright... it doesn't look like Zeke is chasing us. He probably wants to catch us off guard, I guess..." Lucky sighed. "Hey... where's your Glameow friend?" Red asked. Lucky and Tails both went wide-eyed and looked around. "Whisk?? Whiiiiisk!?" they called, to no avail. Red looked worried, too. "That's not good. Aside from those monsters, your friend could get caught by Team Rocket if she goes wandering around by herself..." he warned. "Chaaa..." Pikachu sighed. Tails sat on all fours, as it was more natural for his Zorua form to do so, and looked up at red intently. "Hmm... If Zeke is after that ball, kid, you'd better give it to us." he suggested. Red shook his head. "No way! Do you know how hard it was to get ahold of this?!" he stammered. Lucky nodded. "Right. Besides, it's better we chase Zeke out of this world altogether! So... we should stick by this kid and use him as bait to lure Zeke out?" he suggested. "I don't like it... We don't know what they want that ball for..." Tails said. "Do I get any say in this...?" Red asked. "Pikaaa..." Pikachu mumbled, tilting his head and staring at Lucky in annoyance. "Well, ahh... Why don't we look for Whisk together, and we'll figure the rest out afterwards, deal?" Lucky suggested. Red nodded. "Yeah, deal. I am worried about your friend. Let's head back and search for her!" he said. Tails looked at the city gate. "If we get lost, let's meet up back here... Celadon City...home of the...Rocket Game Corner?" he murmured, reading the sign.
The group walked back close together, calling out to Whisk as they went, hoping to catch her attention. They headed off in different directions, wondering if she took a wrong turn while fleeing from Zeke. Eventually, they felt the ground beneath their feet shift. "Huh? You feel that, Tails?" Lucky asked. Suddenly, the floor collapsed under them, and they fell into a hole! "Meee-yooow!!" Lucky shouted as Tails and Red landed on top of him, followed by Pikachu last! "Ughh... Darn, I can't fly with these goofy Pokemon tails..." Tails groaned as they all slowly rose to their feet. "This looks like a trap..." he added, looking annoyed. Laughing was heard above them. "Prepare for trouble!" a female voice called. "Make it double!" a male added. The female and male alternated as they recited a sort of poem. "To protect the world from devastation! To unite all peoples within our nation! To denounce the evils of truth and love! To extend our reach to the stars above!" A brief pause as the female peered down the hole, revealing her long red hair and slightly skimpy white uniform with a big letter R emblazoned on her shirt. "Jessie!" she announced her name. The male then peered down from beside her, purple hair and his own white uniform with the same red R. "James!" he announced his name. "Team Rocket, blast off at the speed of light! Surrender now or prepare to fight!" they finished. "Meowth! That's riiiiight!" a Meowth with whiter fur peered down from between Jessie and James, smirking at the group, before giving a sudden frown. "Hey! Alolan Meowth in pants! Think you look all stylish! Rrr, show off!" he shouted. "...He calls ME a show off?" Lucky murmured. "Oooh, a Pikachu! Let's grab it!" James suggested. Jessie slapped him in response. "We're not here for that! We're here for the Master Ball!" she said, pointing down at Red. "How does everyone know I have it!?" Red stammered. "Team Rocket has spies all over kid! Now caugh it up!" James ordered. "Or, we could just swipe it!" Meowth grinned, holding an odd sort of device that extended a hand down and reached right into Red's pocket as he gasped in alarm! The Master Ball was pulled up, and Jessie gave a cackle. "Thank you very much! Enjoy your stay in the hole, kid!" she taunted as the Team Rocket trio began to run off. "Hey! Get back here!" Lucky shouted as he and Tails both started trying to climb up the hole. "Ow! You're stomping my fingers!" Lucky gasped, grabbing the fox's tail as he started to fall. "Yikes!! Luckyyyy!!" Tails cried as he stumbled back on top of him. Red scratched his head. "You guys...might wanna practice teamwork. Like me and my Pokemon. Pidgeotto, I choose you!" he said, tossing a ball to let out a brown bird with reddish plumage on its head. "Fly us out of this hole!" he asked. Taking hold of Pidgeotto's talons, Red was lifted up. "What about us??" Tails stammered. "I'll send Pidgeotto back down. Don't worry. I'm sure I know where Team Rocket's going..." he stated.
Whisk sat by the side of the road, looking quite confused. She perked up her head as Team Rocket was running by. "Keep runnin'! The boss'll give us all promotions for snaggin' this!" Meowth sniggered. Whisk squinted at Meowth, but shook her head. Then, Zeke and Zim ran by. "Darn it. Now those three have the Master Ball. Hurry up, Zim!" Zeke grunted. Whisk stared at them, and then rubbed her head. "Aaaahh... C'mon, think! I'm forgetting some real important stuff, I know it!" she whined, pacing back and forth. Something was flying overhead, and hesitated, glancing downward. Whisk stopped pacing as its shadow was cast over her. She heard a deep voice in her head, "Your mind is in turmoil... I sense it." Looking up, she saw a feline creature with whitish fur. He had a long purple tail, three fingered hands, and a sort of tube connecting his head to his back behind his neck. He was an imposing figure, but his expression was oddly gentle. "Wh-who are you? Never mind, I'll forget..." Whisk sighed. The creature spoke in her mind using telepathy. "I am Mewtwo... My psychic powers are incredibly strong. I may be able to help you. But I need you to be calm and at peace..." he said, landing near her and placing his fingers to her head gently. "Ahhh... Calm? Uhm... O-okay... I can't remember anything except I'm sure I'm in the wrong body, but I'll try, sure..." she babbled, drooping her tail to the ground and taking deep breaths, closing her eyes. Mewtwo's eyes started to glow purple, and he started to use his powers on her. "Focus your thoughts... You want to remember something... Reach out and take the memory..." his deep voice whispered. Whisk groaned softly, straining. Suddenly, her eyes shot open wide. "Lucky! I-I need to find Lucky!" she gasped. Mewtwo removed his hand from her head and nodded. "Hold on to this memory and find your friend. I am sure he will help you..." he stated, lifting his eyes skyward. "You're not coming with me?" Whisk asked sadly. "I hear a call... I must go. I hope I was able to help you..." Mewtwo stated before taking to the sky again. Whisk nodded as she watched him go. "Me too... Good bye..." she sighed.
Red led Lucky and Tails back to Celadon City, heading for the Rocket Game Corner. As they approached, they found customers fleeing the building, being chased by heartless resembling black ghosts with evil looking eyes and the heartless emblem contained in their dark bodies. "Looks like we're on the right track! Let's check inside!" Lucky said, the group hurrying past the fleeing people and distracted heartless. Whisk saw them as she was running over, and nodded. "Wait up, Lucky!" she huffed. Entering the building, Lucky looked around. "Okay, Zeke, this isn't funny! Call off those heartless!" he shouted. He didn't see Zeke, though. Scourge the hedgehog was at the back of the building, lifting a poster and pressing a button to cause a door to open, which revealed a hidden staircase! He glanced back at Lucky with a smirk. "No Zeke in here. Guess that means you're outta luck, dweeb!" he laughed before dashing down the stairs! Lucky stared, stammering. "Th-that was Sonic! But green! T-tails?" he babbled, glancing at his friend. Tails crossed his arms and shrugged. "You know as well as I that there's dozens of alternate Sonics out there." he scoffed. Whisk came in behind them at that moment. "Hey, Lucky!" she shouted, making him jump. "Mee-yow!! Oh, Whisk! Y-you're okay! Thank goodness..." he sighed. Whisk nodded, but looked worried. "I followed someone this way... Argh... D-dragon? He was chasing somebody... Can't remember..." she groaned. "Zeke? Wow, can't believe you recognized him as a Pokemon in your state..." Tails said. Whisk nodded. "H-he'd run off in this general direction. I went this way after...someone helped me... Huh... Can't remember that guy either..." she sighed. Lucky took her hand. "Well, you're with us now. Stay close and you'll be safe." he said. Red was looking outside at the Spirit heartless. "The ghosts have stopped chasing people and are watching the door... We're trapped!" he stammered. They glanced at the stairs. "Well, we were planning to go after Team Rocket anyway..." Lucky said.
Heading down the stairs, a few problems quickly presented themselves. The Substitute and Spirit heartless were fighting with Pokemon sent out by Team Rocket members in black uniforms. Down the halls appeared to be sealed doors that would ordinarily require a key card to open. Making matters worse, Whisk was still looking quite distractable in her current state. "Alright... Teamwork, like you said, right Red?" Lucky suggested. Red nodded, and grabbed one of his Poke Balls. "Go, Raticate!" he cried, sending out a brown rat Pokemon with big sharp teeth. "Huh... Bucky?" Lucky stammered, squinting at the Pokemon. He shrugged as the group headed down the hall. "I'll unlock the doors!" Lucky said, gripping his keyblade. Whisk was looking at the filthy Pokemon a Rocket Grunt was using, Grimer. "This place is a mess! I should find a mop..." she muttered. Tails took her arm, holding his shield with the other hand to defend them from incoming attacks. "Whisk, stay by me! Guess I'm helping the team by babysitting..." he sighed. "Pikaaaa!!" Pikachu scampered ahead, using thunderbolt attacks on the heartless while Raticate took to attacking Grimers and winged Zubat used by the Rockets. Lucky pointed his keyblade at a key card slot, and light shot from it, unlocking the door! As it slid open, he saw Scourge holding the key card. "I'll save ya some time; This was the wrong door. Hey! Quit zapping my heartless!" he growled, speeding past Lucky. The cat blinked a couple times and shrugged. "Oookay... I'll try the next door..." he mumbled. Whisk was ducked under a table as Tails flung his shield at several incoming heartless, the shield becoming electrified as it soared to cause extra damage before he pulled it back to him with the magnetic base. "Interesting gizmo..." said Scourge as he stopped next to him. "What are you doing? We can't be seen together!" Tails whispered. "I'm gettin' bored here. I want you to grab that Master Ball for me. It can catch basically anything, and that might come in handy." he stated. Tails growled softly. "I'm working on it! I'm not dumb!" he spat. "I hope not, Miles..." Scourge scoffed, speeding off as Whisk climbed out from under the table. "Tails, what... Are you?" she babbled. Tails looked at her with alarm, but noticed a look of strain on her face. "...Hey, where's Lucky?" she asked, "And why do you look like Copter?" she added. Tails rubbed his head and sighed. Whisk wouldn't remember, it seemed. That was a close one, though...
"Arbok, poison sting!" Jessie called to her cobra Pokemon. "Weezing, smog attack!" James called to his gaseous balloon Pokemon. The two were facing down Zeke and Zim within an office chamber. Zeke tried to blow fire, but it came out as dragonbreath. "Ugh, you smell, Zeke!" Zim grunted before poison stingers pelted him! "Ah! Oof! You dare harm Zim!?" he shouted. As Lucky, Whisk, Tails and Red entered, the trainer knew just what to do. "Pikachu! Thunder!!" The electric mouse gave a cry, and sent a crash of electricity to zap all of them, and Meowth too. For some odd reason, an explosion followed, and Jessie, James, their Pokemon, as well as Zeke and Zim all rocketed through a hole in the roof and off into the distance. "Looks like Team Rocket's blasting off agaaaaaain!!" Jessie, James and Meowth cried in unison. "What the heck was that?!" Zeke yelled, "I mean, the jolt didn't even hurt, I just got flung by an explosion!" he groaned, disappearing into the distance with Team Rocket. A light clapping was heard, and the group looked to see a man in a black suit with impeccably groomed hair and a darkly serious face stand up from the desk. "Quite a display of power, boy. You've done well to make it this far. But you didn't honestly think I'd let you keep the Master Ball you kept from us at Silph Co, did you?" the man said with a sneer. "Giovanni!" Red gasped, clenching his fists as Pikachu sparked threateningly, "The head of Team Rocket!" he explained for Lucky and company's benefit. Lucky stepped forward with keyblade in hand. "We've got ya outnumbered! Turn over the ball!" he smirked. Giovanni looked at him with a chuckle. "How quaint. A talking Meowth. I like to keep felines myself, but mine must have power... Power to serve my goals! You're all too late to stop me, I'm afraid. I have lured back my prize, and the Master Ball has made it mine!" he declared, holding up the purple ball and opening it to release its captive, which Whisk gasped to see. "Behold, the ultimate Pokemon... Mewtwo!!" Giovanni sneered, giving a sinister laugh!
Whisk stared in shock. "M-mewtwo... Guys, it's him! Mewtwo helped me earlier! We can't hurt him!" she stammered, some memories coming back. However, looking at Mewtwo's face, there was a clear darkness in his eyes. "Bad news... I think he's no longer here to help, Whisk." Tails grunted. Giovanni smirked. "It was smart of you to bring dark types, but it will do you no good against Mewtwo. Psychic and Aura Sphere attacks! Bring them to their knees!" he commanded. Mewtwo could not resist his orders, and started by lifting Pikachu and Whisk into the air with Psychic! "Whoa! Hold on!" Lucky gasped, grabbing Whisk's tail and trying to pull her back down! "Ow! S-stop helping!" Whisk yelped. Mewtwo then hurled spheres of Aura energy at Lucky and Tails, striking at their Pokemon weaknesses with fighting-type moves! "Mee-yooow!!" Lucky wailed, tossed like a rag doll from the attack! Red watched this with panic, and reached for another Poke Ball. "It matters not what Pokemon you send, boy... It would be best to just surrender and save yourself some pain!" Giovanni sneered. Lucky struggled to his feet. "N-no! Teamwork, guys, remember? I know what to do... Cover me!" he said, rushing into action. Giovanni snickered and pointed at the Meowth, so Mewtwo prepared another Aura Sphere. Before it could strike Lucky, though, Tails leapt in and blocked it with his shield! "Haaa!! Nice try! You won't break this shield!" he grinned. Red saw this and nodded. "Pikachu! Thundershock!" he called. Pikachu cried out and started to shoot sparks at Mewtwo while he was being held by Psychic. "Fool! Such a weak attack won't stop Mewtwo... What?!" Giovanni gasped. The sparks were going into Mewtwo's eyes, and he couldn't see, enabling Lucky to pass by and evade his Aura Spheres! He also dropped Whisk in his distraction, who grabbed onto Mewtwo's tail to distract him further. At this point, Lucky reached Giovanni. "Your control over Mewtwo is done! Hiyaaa!!" he shouted, flicking his keyblade at Giovanni's hand to knock the Master Ball into the air! He then pointed his keyblade, firing a light beam that, oddly enough, made the Master Ball explode! When the dust of the explosion settled, Giovanni was nowhere to be seen. "Huh? He escaped!" Lucky stammered. Mewtwo shook his head and gently placed Pikachu on the ground. "...Thank you..." he murmured, his tail lowering Whisk to the ground as well. "Ah, hehe... You're welcome!" Whisk giggled. Mewtwo then took off through the hole in the roof without another word.
With that crisis averted, Lucky and the others returned to the Galestrom, ready to set out for another world. Red was there to see them off. "Bye, guys... Wherever you're going. Hopefully I'll get to see Mewtwo again...when I'm Pokemon League Champion!" the trainer said. Pikachu smiled and cheered in agreement. Tails was holding on to Whisk's hand to keep her from wandering. "Well, good luck... We'll do our best in our own quest, too." he said. Heading aboard the ship, they got a chuckle out of Winston. "You guys leavin' like that, kupo? How do I know it's really you, kupo?" he smirked. Lucky produced his keyblade, and Winston chuckled again. "Guess you guys are stuck like that. Maybe we should go back to see Yen Sid again!" he murmured. As the ship took off and returned to space, though, Lucky, Whisk and Tails returned to their normal forms. "Ahh, what a relief! I feel like me again!" Tails sighed. "Who, what, where?! What happened?" Whisk babbled. "...You don't remember anything?" Lucky asked. Whisk blinked a couple times. "Uhmm... I feel like I'm missing time. Are we there yet?" she asked. Tails sighed, a little relieved. She didn't recall seeing him with Scourge. "We'll fill you in on the way..." he muttered. Lucky nodded. "The important thing is, we're a team again! ...Although, I wonder what Zeke wanted with the Master Ball?" he said curiously, "And who was that green hedgehog?" Tails started to sweat a little at that. "Ahh... Who knows anything. Zeke's crazy. C'mon, get your keyblade out so we can figure out where we're going next!" he suggested. Lucky nodded. New adventures awaited them... What world would they find themselves at next?
To be continued...
