Crazy Camping Chapter 22
"I can't believe this is our last day here..." Cream said thoughtfully to herself as she sat in a clearing in the woods, Tails, Charmy, Vector and Espio where nearby.
"That it may be, but we're going to make it our best day!" Vector declared as he walked up behind her.
"How?" She smiled.
"You'll see." Vector grinned back. "I need you kids to do somethings for me while I go get the 'surprise' ready."
"What? What?" All three kids asked eagerly.
"Would you guy please finish painting something for me?"
"Okay, it's this way." Vector went to the edge of the clearing and pushed back some brush to reveal a large and oddly shaped object.
"W-what is it?" Charmy asked nervously.
"It looks a little scary." Cream admitted.
"It's part of the surprise. Trust me, once it's all done you'll LOVE it."
"I don't see how." Tails spoke up.
"Just paint this thing black and green with these." He handed the kids two large cans of black and green paint and three large brushes. "I

"Hey sleeping beauty. It's about time for you to wake up."
Rouge begrudgingly opened her eyes when Sonia complained at her the morning after the storm.
"How's your foot?" The hedgehog asked, even though she acted like she didn't actually cared.
The bat pulled herself into sitting position and glanced down at her foot.
"How-?" She started.
"Knuckles put it in a splint for you while you where still asleep. I noticed it looked kind of weird after you dropped off last night."
Rouge tried to move her foot around and found that it was pretty well immobilized as far as bending and twisting it went. Some white bandages held a home-made splint from the base of her foot to partway up her leg.
"How long did the storm last?" She changed the subject.
"I don't know. I fell asleep not long after you. Judging by the puddles and how wet everything is I'd say almost all night."
Meanwhile, eight dreary Mobians climbed out of the "Camp Vector" van they'd been crammed in over night

"Run faster!" Espio demanded as the lightning struck around himself and the others.
"Don't need to tell me twice." With that, Sonic scooped Amy up and his arms and was out of sight before you could ask him to wait.
"Mister Sonic!" Cream called out in a frightened tone as Vector pulled her and Charmy along.
"Never mind, Cream." Vector comforted her. "Espio, you're fast. Take Cream and go ahead. We'll be fine."
"Roger." The chameleon nodded and picked up the small rabbit before dashing ahead as well.
"Take me with you!" Charmy called after them.
"Shut up and be a man!" Vector snapped.
"I don't wanna!" The bee cried.
"If this wasn't so scary, it would be fun!" Clipsy declared as she ran with the rest.
"There's camp!" Manic, who was at the front of the group, called as thunder boomed loudly.
"Quick, get in the van!" Vector pointed to the large and tacky "Camp Vector" vehicle, it looked to be the best source of protection.
Everyone ran inside while Vector held the d
Crazy Camping Chapter 19
As Tikal walked through the quiet forest with Shadow that day, she began to wonder about the past couple of days she'd spent with him.
She didn't want to admit any sort of attachment to him, especially not in such a short time. Though she could not deny the sense of peace and safety she felt right then.
She glanced at Shadow, who was walking rather than skating, at a moderate pace next to her.
Tikal bit her lip, wondering if she should say anything or not. She wanted to know more about him, he was interesting but so distant.
The whole thing was almost like a big puzzle, but the big picture it made would never be clear unless Shadow would tell her something about himself.
How could you feel so close to a person you knew so little about?
So many questions sat on the very tip of her tongue and some in the back of her mind, waiting to spring up and hopefully be answered. Who was Maria? Had he always been like this? Why did he chose to let her hang around? Why did s
