Scourge: The Awakening
Ch.1 -Awoken and Lost-
All I remember was darkness since the cryostasis pod was turned on, dreams of a past I could never belong to anymore, physically frozen in time possibly never to wake again. I felt alone in the darkness emotionally hurt since the physical pain was not noticable in stasis, I regret everything I've done to the Suppresion squad, Sonic and the Freedom Fighters, even Zonic. I could guess that I've wondered why they never killed me instead of this over a hundred times by now maybe more, then again I have no clue as to how long I've been in this pod.
Fear was all I know that was real, fear of not living the life I had, fear of all I've known being possibly nothing more than lost history, fear of not being able to say that I was sorry, and worst fear of being alone for the rest of eternity left to suffer from my mistakes. This was all a bad dream, one I knew I'd never wake from and even if I did I would never be the same Scourge everyone hated and feared. Though one day that all stopped unknown to me at the time a few Moebians had found the Cryostasis pod I was in.
I didn't know what was going on but suddenly I could feel something, that something felt warm against my freezing cold body "do ya think it's still alive?" I could actually hear one of the people say. Though unable to reply to their question I needed to warm up or else I could of died of the cold, so I forced my weak body to move closer to the source of the heat startling them "it is alive!" the second person said shocked. I felt hands on me lifting me up which in turn triggered the pain that had been numbed out till now causing me to whimper with my weakened voice.
"Careful Trinity he looks to be in pain" one of the three Moebians said "I know Ginni, and he's freezing cold he needs to warm up now" She said and they all noticed that I had begun to open my eyes everything was blurry. "W-who are you?" I had asked with an extremely weakened voice I was actually scared because everything around me looked far too aged to have been 35 years, that was what I was sentinced to spend in stasis. The female looked to me "my name is Trinity this lady is Ginni and our big guy is Tigon" she replied then sat me up I notice her holding up an obect "I need to make sure this thing you were in didn't cause you any trouble." As she moved it around I easily spotted a issue "Something's wrong...I can't see through my right eye..." I said nervous knowing full well that the cryo was never perfected back then.
"Hmm...it would seem that is what I feared your right eye is lacking the signs that should be there for a good sight and it's a bleached out pail blue color too" She said as she continued to hold me close for warmth. Tigon looked out side the ruins "we best be headin back to the hideout or else get caught out here in the forbidden Zone....and unlike you Trinity I ain't hangin for this" he said then looked down to me I knew I couldn't walk yet I guess he knew too since he picked me up and had the girls follow him.
Just after Sunset I could hear shouts like people trying to hide or following orders out in the distance as we hid down in a old cave under a elder tree. I was laying in a bed they had "Why did we run?" I asked them since Chaos know what has happened since cryo. Ginni frowned "The mayor of Nu-Tramus has issued that outsiders outside at night are to be punnished for failin to follow the rules" She said helping me outta the prison clothing I had still. "This mayor sounds terrable..." I replied as I got on some fresh clothing and shoes.
"He is every time someone new comes in he has them taken in and "Clensed" then he forces them to make a choice of joining or be an outcast..." Ginni grumbled as she looked outside "and those with health problems have a dissadvantage on jobs in the city" we all went silent as a scream nearby went off and a female moebian ran by with 2 dog and 4 troopers after her. Now I may be an ass in the past but after all I've been through I couldn't seem to let this new opritunity pass me by "Wait!" I heard Trinity yell as I took off after that other moebian.
Not too long later I noticed those men again had that moebian girl whom I could see as a dove, her clothing had been torn by those troopers and I knew what they had planned. Growling I grabbed one of the men and threw him against a wall catching the other three by surprise "Who the hell are you, you have no rights to be outside stranger?!" the big wolf said yanking out a knife. "Didn't ya know it's wrong to torment a lady?" I said smirking as I dodged his knife jab then kicked him in the stomach, I was doing well till someone got into my 'unfortunate' blind spot and hit me in the side of the head.
I tried to get back up, but one of the four troopers forced me back down painfully "I wouldn't move if I were you stranger" the wolf said and I growled at him. Though as another one of the men tried to use thier club on me again I pulled out a small knife that the Warden in the past forgot to check for and I stabbed the guy in the leg causing him to fall over in pain "hows about I kill y'all and take the young bird with me as ya rot in hell" I replied pulling that same knife outta the husky's leg. I heard the doberman growl at me and as I looked in his direction ducking his swing "you rat! you'll never live long enough to stop all of us."
"Maybe not but I'll make damn sure that ya think before ya hurt another" I hissed at that dog after all I hate being called a rat. As soon as Ginni, Trinity, and Tigon arrived I had all but the wolf down "not another step closer of the lady gets it!" I look up and notice he had a blade to the little ladies neck, growling I dropped the knife I was using, though I started to smile "what the hell are ya smiling for?!" he started to back away only he made the number one mistake anyone would do with me, he blinked. In a flash I had finished him with one solid blow freeing the little bird and shocking the others, unfortunately once the adrenaline wore out I lost my strength to stand and landed on my butt.
"You alright?" Tigon asked me as he got down to me. I just nodded to him, the bird came over to me as well "um...thank you sir, that was really kind of you" she said to me, and for some reason I felt a good feeling bout helping her rather than letting her suffer. I smiled to her "no problem miss I just couldn't leave ya there to be harmed or worse" I replied to her, she then smiled at me "please call me Victoria" she said nicely. I nodded to her "a nice name for a pretty lady, and before I forget y'all can call me Scourge..." I said before I embarrassingly passed out from exhaustion.
