Anox opened his eyes that morning greeted by the noise of his alarm clock going off loudly. With each beep that came from the machine the more his sensitive ears rang, finally having enough of the ringing he slammed his fist into the clock, and listened as it made one final beep and then went quiet. Sitting up, Anox ran a few fingers through his wild black hair before getting to his feet and heading over to his mirror.
As usual, his hair was a mess, laying in spikes all over his face, with a few spiky bangs jutting out over his face. His gray fur looked a bit mis-happened but he set that aside as his bat ears twitched as his cell phone went off. Throwing on a black t-shirt he crossed the room and answered.
"This is Anox, who's calling?"
"Jeez, I've been trying to reach you all morning. The Commander needs you to come down to GUN ASAP. You got that?"
"Look Hyde, it's my day off and the Commander knows that. So tell Commander that I'm not coming in today,"
There was a sigh from Hyde on the other side of the phone before he spoke again. "Anox you don't have a choice in the matter my friend. It's very important that you come down here,"
"Why can't my sister take care of whatever is going on?" he asked, as he threw on his watch and transferred the call to it, so he could talk while getting dressed.
"Rouge is out on another mission with Shadow which is just as important as this. Now, if you don't mind, get down here! Hyde hollered.
Anox sighed as he slid on his gray slightly tight fitting pants. He threw on a black belt and then proceeded to throw on his white and light blue jacket. He then set off to fix his wild black hair. He pulled it back into a long flowing ponytail before finishing and talking back to Hyde.
"I'll be there in 10 minutes, and tell the commander that this better be pretty damn important,"
"It is Anox!" Hyde said before he hung up the phone. Anox frowned as he stepped ouy of his room and to his large den, before making his way into the hall way and towards the elevator. It was just like the commander to take advantage of his day off. Now he had to head in to work for some mission which probably could have waited for the next day.
But of course he kept leaving out that he was the best that they had at GUN, well that and he was the newest member, and considered the runt. But he was making up for it and surprising his fellow co-workers, with his computer skills and tactics. He was quick thinker on his feet and he knew the Commander was probably thinking of promoting him or something along those lines, he sure in heck needed it.
As the elevator arrived at the lobby he saw that the roads were filled to the brim with traffic for some reason and he couldn't understand why. Setting it aside he walked down the street and turned the corner. Anyone that lived in the city could see the GUN base. It was the largest structure in the city and all ways had things going on. At that very moment a large satelite erupted from the roof and began to spin around. That made three all together. Something big must have really happened if they had brought out all most all of the satelites that they had on the building.
Upon arriving Anox was quickly pulled aside and took the private elevator to the highest floor on the base tower, where he knew the Commander was waiting for him. As the elevtaor door opened he was greeted by a stern face, dressed in a blue uniform staring at the screen which showed smoke bellowing out of a large crater that had formed in the earth.
"Commander, I'm here," Anox said as he saluted him.
"I thought you weren't coming. Come here soldier, I have a mission for you and very little time to brief you," the Commander said turning around looking at Anox.
"At 10:00 o 'clock this morning a strange star was seen zooming across the skies. At 10:20 it was identified to be a meteor and it crashed landed a little distance away from the Mystic Ruins. We have just recieved word that Dr. Eggman is sending his robots to investigate. We need to recover what ever is there before Eggman gets to it. If it is powerful, keep it away from Eggman and bring it back to base,"
"Ok, and on the off chance, that I don'ty find anything sir?" Anox asked, stretching for a moment.
"Report back what you see and confirm if Eggman's robots really are heading there. We've stopped all traffic coming and going from the mystic ruins. Your best bet is to take the monorail if you want to get there,"
"Of course the wonderful monorail. Is there anything else I should know?"
"No, but keep your com-link on so we can stay in contact throughout the mission. And remember Soldier, you are apart of GUN,"
"Yeah, yeah. Be back in a few commander," Anox said as he turned around and left the room.
Well the Commander had been right about the monorail being the fastest way to get to Mystic ruins. While he sat on the empty train he brought out his Compad, a small computer that fit in the palm of someones hand,and clicking around as he began to recieve the signal of where the meteor had crash landed. It was right on the out skirts of Mystic ruins. He sighed as the monorail came to a stop and Anox rushed out before anyone could trample him. He took a look around, well most of the tourist had all ready gotten away from Mystic ruins.
Anox slid his palm Compad into his pocket as he saw the smoke in the distance. Immediately he raced towards the smoke without a second thought, his strong legs carrying him with ease and his wings opening as if he were gliding on air.
He arrived on the outskirts and looked down into the large crater and his mouth dropped open as he began to process what he was seeing. There in the large craetor was an echidna, a girl one to be exact. Scarlet red bangs covered her face, and even though dirt covered her, she was still a sight for sore eyes. Her hair was braided into a long ponytail, and long black cape covered her body as she laid there.
Anox blinked for a moment, before he leaped into the air and glided down into the crater,landing beside the girl. He watched her for several minutes before he heard something rustle in the forest that surrounded him. He sighed before picking up the girl, and carrying her in his arms, before he leaped out of the crater and ran face first into some of eggman's robots.
He ducked down before leaping into the air and sending a hard kick to the robots head, knocking it right off, even as he held the girl in his arms. She was out cold, so he had to be even more gentle as he carried her around. He landed on the ground when he was suddenly hit by a lazer which sent him toppling into back into the crater.
"Give us the girl..." they said in a deep monotone voice.
"Yeah right," Anox said as he pushed himself up the ground and heard another sound beside hime. The girl was beginning to move. He watched her along with the other robots.
"Ouch," was the first word that came out of her mouth.
"Are you all right?" Anox asked.
"No, I feel like a rock slammed right into me. Wait who are you?" she asked.
"No time. Can you walk? No, better question...can you fight?"
"Yes, why would you..." but she stopped as she took a look around, slowly getting to her feet, "I see why you would ask a question like that..." she said.
"Then fight," Anox said as he leaped into the air and went surging towards the nearest robot. He pumbled it to the ground with a few kicks and punches before he raced around, sliding under it and kicking it to the ground from behind. Suddenly the earth shook violently and vines sprouted all around, slamming into robots and sending several flying. Others were crushed in it's wake.
Anox's eyes drifted around trying to see who was controlling them, when he realized that it was the echidna and she was controlling them without any trouble. She was like Blaze, only with earth. He straightened up as she finished and then made her way over.
"How can you do that?"
"It's in my blood. So who are you?" she asked.
"The names Anox," he said.
"Well, Anox, my names Akieko,"
"Nice to meet you. Look you might be hurt, I think we need to get you checked out,"
"I feel better now. How did you find me?"
"GUN found you," he said, "Umm Akieko please tell me that you didn't fall through the sky..."
"It's all a blur I'm afraid I can't tell you right now. How about I travel with you?" she asked.
"Sorry to disappoint you but you didn't have a choice in the matter," Anox said as he lead her away from the crater. But something just wasn't right about this girl and that bothered him. But he couldn't put his finger on it.
