Cinnamon Spice 1
There was a flash of orange to his right and Sonic’s head snapped around to look as something skidded up next to him. He didn’t need another enemy right now! He already had stacks of the things following him and pinning him to this ledge.
The figure flipped one of her three darker orange spikes over her shoulder to look at him with a grin, orange-brown face reminding him of Tails’ despite the lack of a white area around the mouth. The person even had a single tail similar to Tails’ only a terracotta like the rest of her with a lighter orange tip.
However Tails most definitely did NOT have a white chest like Shadow’s or an orange hovering board like the one she’d slid up to him on. She held out a smooth white glove to him with the palm outstretched, “Coming?”
“Who are you?” The figure only grinned, tail whipping from side to side,
“Tell ya later, right now we need to get out of here, trust me?”Sonic hesitated, hearing thundering of bots coming up. He made his decision.
He looked up and slapped his hand into hers to be pulled onto the board. The strange person’s head moved to the front and she spun the board into a small circle to gain speed before shooting off the ledge, leaving a trail of bright red-orange behind her. They shot across the open air as he stared and held onto her.
She was even humming as she shot straight into open space seemingly without thinking, leaning backwards as they flawlessly landed on the narrow ribbon of land crossing the gap, causing them to weave back from the edge towards the other one, again not falling off by a few inches. She easily controlled the board in its zig-zag path, leaning forwards and then back almost carelessly as she steered.
Sonic eventually got the hang of it and reached out as they shot forwards, one hand on her shoulder with the other grabbing rings as they shot past some robots. Then they leant even further again and shot round a corner at a steep tilt inwards, sparks flying off the board’s edge as Sonic lost his grip and flew off the board’s surface, unprepared for the angle.
Suddenly he found his glove clasped in another and looked up to see the figure grinning at him with her three spikes blown towards him. She held him in balance as they sailed round the high corner and pulled him on board with a slight swerve as they shot into open space again.
Sonic gulped as the board seemed to go out of control, land switching with sky and then spinning before they ‘landed’ neatly, the rider composed and looking ahead cooly as Sonic stared at her, holding on tight.
“What?” She asked, looking over her shoulder, eyebrows raised. He shook his head and muttered something about being crazier than him. The figure threw her head back and laughed as they shot through Metal city.
