Warning - This episode contains some dark content.
The ideas discussed in last episode couldn`t be implemented in there, so they are being implemented here.
As Amy wakes up, she finds herself laying on a cold, hard floor. She sits up from her laying down position and rubs her head in an attempt to lessen the throbbing pain she is feeling. She looks around the room. Where is she?
The room is very plain looking. White walls, white ceiling, white floor. There is a single door on one of the walls and on the adjacent wall of that is a large mirror. The only other notable item in the room is a wooden chair of some old style that is sitting against the wall opposite to the mirror. It almost feels like an interrogation room. There is definitely a very negative feeling to this room like she shouldn`t be here.
Not feeling very comfortable here, Amy gets up from the floor and goes for the door to leave. She doesn`t know where she is but she can`t stay here. She grabs the handle of the door and pulls. It doesn`t budge. Maybe it has to be pushed. She leans her body against the door and pushes. The door still doesn`t move. It must be locked. She bangs her fist on the door,"Hey! Let me out!"
No answer comes to her. Amy lowers her head down and sighs. She will be stuck here until someone comes to her rescue. Her hand slides off the handle of the door and she slowly crosses the room to go sit down on the chair. As she sits down, Amy puts her hands over her face. If she had her piko-piko hammer with her, she could easily bust down the door herself. A moment of silence and Amy whispers Shadow`s name to herself.
A smirk crosses onto Jet`s face. He`s in the room that is concealed behind the mirror. He`s looking on through the mirror and can see Amy. There are speakers in the room which allow him to hear everything that goes on in the room. Wave is standing beside him with her arms crossed while Storm is sitting at the control panel. Bean and Bark are standing in the back. Jet is leaning forward with both hands on top of the control panel. He chuckles a bit,"Perfect...Just what I needed to hear."
Jet stands up straight from the control panel and heads for the door. Wave stops him,"What do you want us to do while you`re gone?"
Jet looks over his shoulder at Wave,"Whatever you guys want."
He gives her a smile and then exits out of the room. Storm leans back in the chair,"Too early for me to do anything. I`m still tired from us working on this plan all night."
Wave unfolds her arms,"We just need a few days on this. Long as nothing interrupts us, we`ll have her torn away from Shadow and that`ll be that."
Wave heads for the door that Jet just exited through. Storm sits up,"Where are you going?"
"I`m going to have a little girl talk with pinky, there."
Amy lifts her head as she notices the door opening. Her mood shifts to angry when she sees Wave entering the room. Amy jumps to her feet,"I should`ve known you Babylonians were behind this!"
Wave backhands Amy,"Shut up!"
Amy jolts back from the hit. Wave hasn`t launched into a fight this quick before. She tries to question Wave as to why she is doing this and Wave answers simply that it`s none of her business and launches into continuing her physical attack on Amy. Amy does her best to fight back and defend herself but Wave has been in more physical fights than Amy has. She begins to wish that she was as half of a good fighter as Knuckles is. Wave is absolutely relentless and merciless on her attacks. Amy is grateful that she can redirect attacks well enough to keep Wave from doing any damage to her face beyond a slap or two. However, it is not enough to keep her safe from Wave.
Amy is knocked down multiple times and receives many punches and kicks. This is not just a one-sided fight, this is a fight for Wave to display a sort of status of dominance over Amy. Wave wants Amy feeling vulnerable and weak compared to her and she is succeeding. It doesn`t take much of this abuse before Amy grows terrified of Wave. She has never really felt any kind of serious fear of Wave but now she does. Amy knows that if she survives this, she will be in absolute fear of Wave the next time she sees her. And if Wave is doing this, who knows what else the other Babylonians are going to do to her when Wave is finished.
Wave gets Amy cornered whenever she can and pounds on her with all her might. She is stronger, she is the better fighter and Amy had best submit to her. The Babylonians are going to be the dominant group over the Sonic gang and this will show them all that they are serious with those intentions. The damage they will do to Amy and Shadow will serve as an example for the rest of the gang of what is going to happen.
When Wave has Amy beaten enough to where Amy is too weak to get back up, Wave gives her a final kick before she finally stops her assault. She grabs Amy and yanks her up from the floor. Wave drags the beaten and exhausted girl back over to the chair and sets her on it. Then Wave uses the chains around the chair to strap Amy down to the chair so that she cannot escape. Amy makes small noises as the chains are slapped around her. Her body is in pain and the chains are only adding to it.
Amy is relieved when Wave finally leaves the room. She drops her head and tries to hold back her tears. Her friends surely must know that she is missing and will look for her. The Babylonians are obviously missing from school as well, that should clue her friends in that they have kidnapped her. Yes, her friends are looking for her. She must try to remain strong until they come for her. Hopefully that will be soon...
Amy doesn`t realize that her aches and pains caused her to fall asleep until she is stirred awake by the sound of the door slamming shut. She quickly looks to the direction of the door and sees Jet coming towards her. Out of all the Babylonians, besides Wave due to the recent event, Jet is the only one that Amy had any amount of fear for. He is known for loosing his temper quickly like Knuckles and like Knuckles, quick to turning violent.
Jet stops just before Amy and she asks him how long she has been here in this room. Jet smirks and tells her that she has been there a full 24 hours now. Night has fallen over since her slumber. Then Amy asks him when she will be released and Jet thinks about that answer for a moment. His response sends a chill up her spine,"Whenever we get done with you. However long that takes."
Amy suddenly bursts out, leaning close to Jet`s face. She feels less fearful of him now because she fears Wave more right now,"Let me go, Jet! I want to go back with my friends!"
Jet is taken back a little by Amy`s bold move. But he quickly recovers from that and smirks,"Back with your friends, huh? There`s one you`re never going to see again."
Jet produces a knife he has been hiding from her view. The knife is a serrated steak knife. There appears to be blood on the blade. A few drops drip from the knife. Amy dares not ask who`s blood it is. Jet leans forward and holds the blood covered knife dangerously close to Amy`s face,"You see this?"
Jet turns the knife from side to side so Amy can get a good look at it,"This is blood from your precious Shadow. Take a good look at it, Rose."
Jet carelessly tosses the knife onto the floor just before Amy`s boots,"That`s the last piece of him you`re going to see!"
Jet walks back to the door laughing and saying how he is going to finish Shadow off. Amy looks down at the bloodied knife and hears the door slam shut. It can`t be true. Shadow is powerful and quick. How could Jet possibly even stand a chance against him? A tear rolls down Amy`s cheek as she begins to whimper out of concern for Shadow.
In the control room, Storm is overlooking a few screens which each are views of security cameras around the perimeter. Bean enters the room with some food for everyone that is apparently from some fast food restaurant. He sets the bags down on a clear section on a table. He fishes through the bags to figure out which bag has which food in it then distributes a bag of food to each Babylonian according to what they ordered. One bag is left. Bean looks at Wave,"Where is Jet? His food`s gonna get cold."
Wave takes a bite out of her hamburger,"He`ll be back. He`s just busy right now."
Bark looks at Amy through the mirror,"Shouldn`t we give her something? She hasn`t eaten in a while."
Wave fans her hand at Bark,"Nah, she`ll be fine. Besides, if we allow her to regain her strength that`ll make it much harder to break her spirit."
Bark looks at his meal,"True."
It seems like hours have passed since Amy has seen Jet. She hasn`t been able to take her eyes off the bloodied steak knife that Jet left with her. Her mind races with all the things that Jet has done to Shadow and may be currently doing to Shadow. She`s crying silently to herself as all these thoughts run through her head. On occasion she whispers Shadow`s name and prays that he is all right.
She lifts her head up and tilts her head back so that she is facing the ceiling. Her silent crying begins to grow a little in volume. Oh this is torture! Her body is in great pain from Wave beating her, her strength is diminishing from lack of nutrition, she is trapped on a chair in a room with nothing to do or see, held hostage by a rival gang. How she wishes that she was with her friends, living her life normally and seeing Shadow. Something needs to happen. Something needs to change this.
The door creeks open and Amy`s head flings to the direction of the door. She immediately silences her crying but she can`t hide her tears. Jet enters the room and approaches her. He has an object in his hand that Amy can`t see what it is until he reaches her. It is a feather. A large, green, bird feather which appears to have blood stains on it. The blood must have been there a while since it is not dripping like how the knife was. Amy`s mouth drops open but she says nothing.
Her tears don`t go unnoticed by Jet but he doesn`t say anything about them. He cooly looks down at the feather in his hand. His hand twists the feather to an upright position and he twirls the feather around in his fingers. His eyes shift to Amy and he smirks. She knows what he`s going to say yet she knows she will be shocked when he says it. Jet whips the feather at Amy and it hits her in the face. It leaves some of it`s red substance on her cheek where it makes contact with her. It flutters down to the floor. Jet folds his arms triumphantly,"He didn`t stand a chance."
Amy stammers as she switches glances between Jet and the feather that now lies on the floor. She finally manages to speak real words,"It`s not true..."
She closes her eyes tightly,"It`s not true!"
Jet grabs Amy by her chin and forces her to face him,"And guess what? When he died...He was screaming for Maria...Instead of you..."
Jet releases her chin and Amy stares at nothing in particular in disbelief. What? How could he? Didn`t Shadow care about her at all?
Jet leaves the room to leave Amy with her thoughts. He will pay her another visit in the morning. In the meantime, he has other things to do.
