"..." He sweatdropped, slowly down slightly.
He nodded slowly "I know I don't have to... but I'd like to." He softly kissed the top of Becky's head.
"Just stay safe, ok...?"
"No Qwacky, remember the last time you ate straight from the bag?"
The duck ignored her, eventually jumping up onto Violet's head and trying to peck into the bag.
"Hey! I-- without me, you-- I--!!" Jet scowled, feathers ruffling more.
Omega blinked dully before looking down to Rouge.
"WE MADE SURE THE CLOWNS WERE SAFE... NOW CAN I KILL THEM MYSELF?"
She held the hug tightly, a soft sob escaping her.
The bluish-white hedgehog stepped in slightly, brown eyes narrowed furiously.
Sonic turned at the voice, before slowly standing.
"Dad... leaving her alone, in this state?"
"Without you around, someone has to feed this family..." Maverick growled softly in response.
(Yep, to the park and the team's introduction?)
The skrill forced her breaths out, before grunting as she finally forced herself back up to her feet, stumbling slightly.
Zero's eyes softened, looking to her.
"Eira..." He glanced away, shaking his head.
"I should be the one apologising, for what I did..."
"Chaos, no...!" Her eyes began welling with tears, squeezing them shut.
He slowly shook his head "Not this time, I have to do this myself..." He looked over to Als.
"Als! Keep Becky safe, ok?"
The bird perked, fluttering over with worried eyes.
"You really aren't thinking of fighting him alone, are you...?"
"..." Xavier glanced away weakly, before looking back up to Klaws.
"... I have to, Als... not just for me, but every scorpion..."
Sir Quackington jumped forward, trying to nab the food from her.
"Hey!~" Violet giggled, tail wagging.
"Ehh... hey! How was I supposed to know that was part of the doohickey you were working on?" Storm returned the comment, grumbling.
"Can you two quit bickering?!" Jet sqwarked angrily, feathers ruffling.
"Sheesh, you two never change!"
Violet giggled, before pulling out the bird feed.
The green Egg Flier meanwhile had been hovering in a nearby tree, blue eyes unblinking as it focused upon the four mobians.
"So, that's where they disappeared to..." Eggman leant back in his chair, putting his fingers together.
"Now, according to the samples I was able to receive... Autumn there has an uncle..." He closed his eyes, silently smirking to himself.
"... I'll send the man a formal letter, perhaps he'd be willing for a temporary alliance..." His smirk dropped, the monitors light reflecting off his glasses.
"Unless he's as stupid as her and can't read... but, there's no harm in trying... I'll send an Egg Pawn with a holo-transmitter, so he can watch the message as well, in case..."
Drifloon nodded, before beginning to pull the boy upwards.
Sonic reluctantly drifted in defeat, ears flattening slightly.
"W-we can get you somewhere safe... do you know where dad is--"
"Oi!" The figure stepped into the door frame, slamming his ax into the wall beside him.
"Who the hell are you, gettin' near my wife like that?!"
She tightened the hug, her own eyes finally welling with tears.
"... I missed you, Diana... so much..." She choked out, ears flattening.
She nodded with a smile, tail wagging happily as she began to walk downstairs.
He looked down to her with weak eyes before back up to Klaws.
"... I know I said I usually hate starting a fight, but this guy deserves a beating..."
Als looked between them, eyes worried and uncertain.
Jet nodded and turned, leading the way into the lab.
"Wave, ya done fixing up the whatchacallit? We got a couple of old 'Friends' dropping in"
