When we last left our hero, he was napping in front of the Master Emerald until Eggman sent him to another dimension...A dimension that's just a big...Highway...Thingie...Unknowing of the impending predicament he got himself into (Being a heavy sleeper and all), Jade continues his nap. Suddenly, two men in cybernetic suits approach him.
"Hey!" One of them says poking him with his laser rifle, "Hey buddy!" Jade swats the gun away from him and rolls over.
"Don't bother" the other says with a sigh, "The guy's totally out of it!"
"Well we can't leave him out here!" The first one replies, "He's sleeping right at the entrance of the Prime Zone! It's still on Zone Lockdown!"
The second person pulls out a device and starts scanning Jade.
"Hmm..." The second one says as the scan finishes, "Maybe we better take this guy back to the No Zone and see what Sgt. Zon Bat has any idea on what to do with him?"
Hours later, Jade is relocated. He mumbles something under he breath about a "Championship Belt"
"Mmmph...Sorry, Shimo, I just knocked out a walrus" Jade said groggily sitting up in a bed he was placed in, "Was anything important said?" He wrestled his eyes open and noticed he was put in a jail cell. "Hm, that's odd" he said to himself scratching his head, "I don't remember checking into the Y"
"Mornin', Sleeping Beauty" Said a voice that sounded like Jade's.
"Whazzawhozzat?" Jade asked as he turned his head to the voice which indeed appeared to belong to someone who resembled him in a fancier version of the cyber suit the other two were wearing. Shaking off what grogginess he had left, Jade walked up to the stranger. "Oh God" He commented looking at his snappily-dressed doppleganger, "This isn't that double dream where I arrested myself on a distant planet again is it?" He finally asked after looking outside the cell. "...And how and/or why are you standing on the wall?"
"Maybe YOU'RE on the wall" the look-alike replied. "My name is Sgt. Zaden Zon Bat of the Zone Police. Sorry about the accommodations, after a recent jail break, we couldn't be too careful. Zonic! Unlock our guest's cell"
"Are you sure about this, Sarge?" Asked who appeared to be Soinc wearing another variation of the suit opening the cell, "Warden Zobotnic's orders are to take him straight to Zouge for counciling"
"Yeah, but she's dealing with that other mysterious arrival" Zade said, "And after what you saw THAT one did to me, do you really want to leave this handsome devil in the same room with HER!?"
"Sounds like somebody with a beef with me" Jade said straightening his hair as he exits his cell, "Broken heart?"
"She kept saying his face was everywhere" Zonic answered pulling out what looked like a Wanted Poster with a picture of Jade with a smug, toothy grin gripping the right side of his jacket and his eyelids droopped, "We confiscated this from her"
"...They used THAT pictrure?!" Jade exclaimed in embarrassment, "Who the hell are the B.O.I.C!?"
"See, that was what we were hoping YOU knew" Zade replied, "Especially after finding THIS on YOUR person" He then hands Jade a blank card with Eggman's symbol on the back. Just then, a hologram of Eggman appeared on the white part of it.
"Good morning, Jade" the hologram said, "I suppose you're wondering where you are right now. Welcome to the Cosmic Interstate, a place that connects our world to various parallel dimensions across the multiverse. Where you stand right now is what many of these worlds refer to as the 'Prime Zone'. Adjacent to this message, you should see a peculiar device. I'll have more information for you once I pinpoint your location and contact you via the nearest means of communication. Until then, feel free to have a chat with your Prime Self"
"The device mentioned in the message was also confiscated and put under inspection" Zade reported, "It's currently in my office"
"Wait a frig" Jade said stepping to the unusually deep opening to the cell "Are you sure I wasn't abducted by Zeti agian and given this ring around my neck just to screw with me by showing images of people I know depending on rank...? With a flaw where eveybody's name still starts with Z?" As he climbed out of the cell he noticed that he is looking at another cell miles down from him. He drops before hanging onto the cell door. "NOW WHAT THE HELL IS THIS CRAP!?"
"Whoopse, sorry, I almost forgot to tell you about all of that" Zade chuckled embarrassedly, "We FOUND you at the foot of the Prime Zone in the Cosmic Interstate. Welcome to the No Zone. A dimension 90 degrees from everywhere"
"...How does THAT work!?" Jade asked extending his wings to fly.
"That's on a need to know basis" Zade answered, "Specifically, this is Zone Jail where we keep the multiverse's most notorious criminals. To answer your other two questions in order, the gravity on this Cell Block is still a little buggy from the jail break I mentioned earlier. As for the ring, that's a device we call a "Control Collar" Which turns off your superpowers as long as it's on you. In fact, that's an extra strength one I had custom made for you. Again, protocol"
"So why the special treatment, big boy?" Jade snarked taking a seat on the railing side, "Seems like a lot of trouble to go through for little ol' me"
"The reasoning behind it is that according to our scans, you are a very unique variation of yours truly" Zade explained leaning to his right to see Jade's face, "You come from a place out of our jurisdiction called the Leet Zone. Zonic, get this guy a Gravity Belt before I get a crick in my neck"
"I have one right here, sir" said a voice that sounded like Melony's happily. Jade looks down to see her counterpart in a secretary's outfit. She places it on Jade who drops to his side upon activation.
"Thank you, Zelony" Zade said, "How's my schedule for the rest of the day?"
"The only thing you realy have on it today is your meeting with the warden" Zelony reported.
"Right" Zade replied, "Well, I think an apropriate amount of time has passed to say you had your scession. Come with me, I'm supposed to bring you"
"You sure we can't swing by there?" Jade asked picking himself up off the floor, "I could use a talk with my favorite cousin right now, even if she's just a counterpart of her"
"Believe, me buddy, I know how you feel" Zade reassured him, "But trust me when I say that right now, it's a good idea to stay as far away from that girl she's with as possible"
As the two leave, Zelony turns her attention to Zonic.
"By the way, Zonic" she said, "Chief Zaku wanted me to ask you to report to HIS office for an assignment"
"Yes, ma'am" Zonic said leaving down the path behind him.
