Tails the Fox
Chapter 02 - The Egg Invasion
Boss 01 - Egg Slasher
2BIT: Sonic the Hedgehog and related characters are (c) SEGA and
Sonic Team. You knew that, right?
The Egg Slasher came towards Tails. Cream, Cheese, and SPOT ran for cover. It was all up to Tails....
Or was it?
GUN's troops had recieved reinforcements while Tails was distracting Dr. Eggman. His Egg Pawns were now severely outnumbered, thanks to the fact that Tails and Cream destroyed a fair amount of them on their way to city hall. Before Tails could act against the Egg Slasher, GUN arrived, and had deployed one of their mechs, "Bigfoot."
Behind Bigfoot was an official-looking character. Wearing the uniform of a GUN commander, this man was an important sargent in GUN's forces. He was known as Sargent Gunner. Holding a megaphone, Gunner shouted angrily at Eggman. "All right, Dr. Eggman! Your forces have been reduced to scraps! Surrender, or we will be forced to shoot you down!"
Eggman just laughed at him. "Sorry, loudmouth, but I'm feeling lucky today! Egg Slasher! Slash them!" The Bigfoot mech fired at the Egg Slasher, but its bullets wouldn't penetrate, and the mantis machine slashed it, causing it to explode! Gunner ran for his helicopter, turned, and yelled, "You haven't won! We still have plenty more where that came from!"
While all this was happening, Tails managed to help Amy fight off the remaining Egg Pawns. She then ran over to where Cream was hiding, while Tails flew up to Eggman's plane. After Gunner left, Tails tapped Eggman on the shoulder, startling him. "Aaaaah! Assasins! Help!" Eggman spun his plane around and crashed into Tails, causing both of them to crash. "You little pest! I'll teach you to sneak up on people!" Eggman picked up the nearest rock and threw in at Tails in an angry fit. Then Tails said, "Thanks!"
"Huh?" Eggman looked confused, until he realized that he had just tossed the Chaos Emerald! "Why you trickster! Give that back! Never mind, Egg Slasher, catch that flying hairball!!" It was clear that Eggman's patience had run out. Tails got an idea. "SPOT, fetch!" Tails tossed the emerald toward the robo-puppy, who ran up and caught it. However, this manuver had cost Tails some time, and the Egg Slasher caught up to him. "It appears we have reached a stalemate!" Eggman declared. "Now hand over that emerald, little doggy, or I'll chop off your master's tails!"
Instead, SPOT "swallowed" the emerald. Eggman looked surprised, until SPOT opened its mouth again, turned to the Egg Slasher, and fired an emerald charged laser beam! The Egg Slasher was struck hard, and was thrown past Tails until it hit the ground, collapsing in a heap. "It's not over yet!" Eggman growled. He was right. The Egg Slasher's feet had been destroyed, but it could still fly! Now, it was up to Tails, because using the Chaos Emerald used up most of SPOT's power. What was worse, the Egg Slasher was after the helpless robo-puppy. Tails had to act fast.
Tails had to fight, and to make it easier, he pulled out another new invention. When Tails uses his two tails to fly, he can't really use them to attack. So Tails invented some brand new Spring Shoes, which he could use to jump really high!
"Hey! Egg Slasher! Over here!" Tails called. This was starting to irritate Eggman, what with people constantly interrupting his plans, so he turned to the Egg Slasher and issued a new command. "Forget the Chaos Emerald! Egg Slasher, go and teach that two tailed troublemaker the might of the Eggman Empire!" The Egg Slasher turned in midair and flew off in Tails direction. Tails jumped in place, activating the Spring Shoes to bounce him in the air! But the Egg Slasher was going too fast to turn around. Tails soared up to its head, spun in midair, and whipped its head with his twin tails! The Egg Slasher collapsed again, this time for good.
As you can imagine, now Eggman was REALLY mad. "Blast you, Tails! You and Sonic always wreck my robots! Do you know how much it costs to build them!?! No matter, I'll just--"
Before he could finish, three more Bigfoot mechs landed, with an angry Seargent Gunner behind. Eggman realized now that he had lost. "I guess a hasty retreat is in order.... But I'll be back!" Before leaving, Eggman flew past Gunner, and taunted the sargent. "So, Gunner, I hear you're missing something in your base today. Such a shame. Good luck finding it... and the Chaos Emerald, too!" With that, Eggman flew away, with Gunner shouting curses at him.
After things had settled, Tails, Amy, and Cream went to Amy's apartment to rest. They all agreed that Eggman was up to his old tricks, and only Sonic could stop him....
"What are we waiting for!?" Amy shouted. "Let's find MY Sonic! I say he's THIS way!" and Amy turned and ran out the door.
"Amy! Wait up!" Tails shouted. "SPOT can also be used to find Sonic! Let's try using radar!" and Tails and SPOT ran off.
"Amy, you forgot to lock the door! What if burglers show up!" and Cream and Cheese ran off as well.
Later, in one of GUN's secret bases, Gunner was trying to figure out what Eggman was up to. He wasn't making much progress, and had spent the past half hour shouting at his henchman, Spy. "Eggman! He's behind everything! I KNOW it! And he got Sonic in on it, I'll bet!"
See, Gunner doesn't trust "Furry Freaks", which is what he calls Sonic and his friends. What's more, something had happened earlier that day that led him to believe that Sonic had turned bad. But the blue creature on his surveillance cameras wasn't Sonic....
