Crimson Stains Chp 6 The next day, was a sunny one. No clouds covered the skies and the sun's rays shone brightly down on the people of Westopolis. The mild, yet still fast and hot winds blew on the bare cheeks of the citizens. MoonDance was walking on the streets, enjoying the summer winds. Though she loved the rainy weather, that rain a few days ago was enough rain for her. Also, her side cut had already healed up mostly-all that was left was a little scratch.
She walked on the sidewalks, looking at the different hotdog stands in front of the pawnshops, the small boutiques which always had 'sale' signs on the windows, and the small fruit market on the side of the road in downtown Westopolis. Close by, however, was a young, male hedgehog that was standing in the road-the almost always busy road. He was at least ten years of age, his name was Lash, and he had a sheet tied around his neck.
"Captain Rider fights the battle with extreme speeds!" Lash
Crimson Stains Chp 4 The next day was a clear one. Sunny and bright was it. White clouds covered the skies and everything was dry. The flowers were blooming with dew on them. Though it was a bright and wonderful day, MoonDance, however, was in the worst mood. She was outside in front of a rock.
"Ugh!" MoonDance shouted as she kicked a rock.
The rock did nothing but wiggle.
"I can't believe he said that to me!" MoonDance created an orb of water and threw it at a tree. It went almost all the way through.
"That insecure, stubborn, hard headed little-"MoonDance griped her fists.
"Woah!" Charm crossed her arms and smiled," No need to take it out on the rock."
"But, that hedgehog! He's so so...!" MoonDance started, then brought up another water ball.
She threw it, but this time, it just went through the air and hit the ground.
"What's wrong?" Charm questioned.
"Shadow!" MoonDance snapped.
"Come again?" Charm tilted her head.
"Shadow! I said Shadow!" MoonDance kicked a small pat
Crimson Stains Chp 3"Stupid creatures!" Surge shouted.
"Hurry, Sonic!" Knuckles yelled.
Then, Sonic spinballed into the creature that was after Knuckles, while another creature was about to attack Surge. Right before it slashed Surge with it's foot-long, thick, needlelike fingers, a giant hammer came down hard on it's head. Surge turned and saw Amy picking up her hammer. The creature wasn't crushed, but it was dead, so it disappeared in a small cloud of purple smoke.
"Eww!" Amy examined her hammer for blood, but found none.
"Nice, Amy!" Surge smiled.
She smiled back, "Well, there's a lot more!"
A creature started to come to MoonDance quicky! They all had no legs, making them look like they had only a long, black coat on. Their heads were perfectly round on top but went down like a light bulb, and their teeth were sharp. They could unlock their jaws wide enough to swallow anyone's head whole! They didn't have pupils either, their eyes were just yellow and they had sharp teeth.
Crimson Stains Chp 2"What a snob!" MoonDance jerked her arm free from Charm's grasp.
"Don't worry about her!" Charm grabbed her arm again and started dragging.
Charm finally was able to pull MoonDance around the corner of the hall, when a small beeping sound was heard.
"What?" MoonDance looked down and searched herself to see where the beeping was coming from. Charm did the same, then they both realized it was coming from the communicators Tails gave them incase Sonic or the others needed help.
"At least we have something to do now!" Charm grinned.
"Alright!" MoonDance flung her fist into the air and ran with Charm to the entrance.
Outside, they found Tails waiting in the X-TORNADO with Amy, Cream, and Mikiya. They had the glass dome over them so that they wouldn't get wet. The rain trickled down the glass as Tails fought to look through it.
"That was fast!" Charm ran quickly, trying not to get wet.
"I was already on my way over." Tails opened the dome quickly.
Amy, Cream, and Mikiya sheltered their heads

Poetic PsychosisIn thirty seconds, the next shell would fall. Every night was the same, but every night Lorenzo experienced it as if it were the first time. His throat felt swollen; breathing was hard. He glanced around at the others; young men like him who had been shipped out in the name of honour and freedom. There was no honour in this, no freedom. Only death behind your eyelids, and a fear so gutting, that it carved out your innards and left you a hollow husk. Lorenzo tried to breathe, tried to assure himself that he was still whole, still made of flesh. They had lied when they told him he was ready.
Matteo ran towards him, arms out, rifle swinging uselessly at his side. He shouted for him to run, but Lorenzo remained motionless, unable to move as his friend’s warning was lost in the constant blare of gunfire. None of them were ready.
“The cycle is repeating. It is not safe.” The voice was soft and weak, yet it carried over the gunfire and battle cries without impediment.
