"What... why... why is this happening?" Soma questions. "Does the world have to counteract what's been happening the past few days?!"
[i It's almost like when Shadow said something bad would be coming... is this it or is there something even worse afterwards?] Soma thinks.
"Wait, Yoko, where is she?!" Soma exclaims as she gets and runs off in search of her. "Yoko, where are you?!"
Soma runs frantic through the crowds, hoping to find Yoko.
[i That creep better not have kidnapped her!] Soma says in her head. [i If he did, who else would he have stolen?!]
The female turns towards her,and the girl recognizes the glowing symbols on her body as glyphs. “Essentially, yes, he is...” she maaid, and She began to explain that he was an evil being intent on destroying anything in his way, and Willow explained that her personal mission was to destroy the monster with the magic she was able to harness
"Wha- what's going on?!" Soma exclaims.
"Pfft, you think I'm afraid of you?" Genya says. "Fine, I'll leave for now since this is a night of celebration... but no other night be safe anymore."
He then jumps up into the sky and disappears into the night.
"Will someone explain to me what just happened?!" Soma questions. "Was that like... Mobius' version of Dracula or something?!"
[i Castlevania, that's the game!] Soma thinks to herself. [i But his name Genya... wasn't that the name of...?]
"I can't be dealing with vampires too if that's what he was!" Soma says as she falls to the floor in exhaustion. "He... he just tried to use some kind of mind control on me, that's what that pink flash in his eyes were, wasn't it?!"
Out of nowhere, the female hedgehog dropped in between the two. “That is enough ‘Genya’...you’ve caused enough trouble as it is...” she said, and her markings flowed bright, reminding him that she was not one to be trifled with , especially since he wasn’t at full strength. “I would leave now, or there will be trouble.” She told the vampire bat.
"So, what exactly are you?" Soma asks. "I mean that as in, are you the lord of some kind of castle or something?"
"You could say that." Genya says. "Though in actuality, I've only recently gained a castle."
"Only recently- what, you just bought one or inherited one?" Soma questions. "How does one simply gain a castle?"
"When the previous king no longer requires it, that is how you receive one." Genya answers. "It doesn't matter what it used to be before, I've redesigned it to my liking."
"You... did you make it like a maze?" Soma asks.
"What kind question is that?" Genya asks back. "It's to my liking and whether it's a maze or not to others, I wouldn't know."
"Hmmm... I think I know who you remind me of now." Soma says.
[i I would swear he's like some from some video game but I can't remember what one!] Soma thinks.
"Would you like to see it?" Genya asks.
"What- no!" Soma answers. "I'm pretty certain that even though my parents never specifically said it, they would say never to go alone with strangers to their castle!"
"Oh, come now, you'll be fine!" Genya says the places a hand on Soma's face. "You won't regret it!" His eyes then flash pink for a split second.
"I-I... no!" Soma responds then pushes his hand away. "You're starting to be really creepy about this."
"I see..." Genya says, then his expression darkens. "I guess I'll have to add another to the collection by force."
"To your- what?!" Soma exclaims while backing away from him.
Raoul was celebrating with his friends, but after a short amount of time, he noticed that Soma has disappeared, but he soon saw her standing next to a vat, who looked like a baron or a lord, something to that effect. His face turned to a scowl, but he didn’t want to be rude and interrupt their conversation, so he merely listened to what they were saying, but not too far from them sat a white hedgehog in blue armor.
The white hedgehog raised her visor, looking at the approaching night moon. “...What a horrible night to have a curse...” she said to herself, knowing trouble would be afoot. As she stood up, red markings flowed on her shoulders and on her back, the sign of a glyph user
The experiment was a success. Eggman was finally cured of his power-craze. Everyone then left the Egg carrier after it landed at the base it was above.
Eggman who's now to be known simply as Ivo, along with Gerald, Maria and even Shadow went off by themselves talking about what to do now.
Soma went with the rest of the Freedom Fighters back into the city, feeling like she accomplished creating peace for the entirety of Mobius for a long while.
A huge celebration amassed at how "Eggman" was no more.
"To manage so much in only a few days... it's almost like a dream." Soma says. "Makes me wonder I can do within a year in Mobius!"
"Well, you go enjoy yourself because you've earned it." Yoko says. "I... I've got something to do right, I'll catch up later."
"Oh... okay then." Soma replies.
The lights of the city shined brightly through the night sky as cheering could be heard from miles. Though, the rain grew heavier and heavier, and lightning began to strike.
"A bit spooky for a night to celebrate on, don't you think?" Soma asks. "Oh wait... I'm by myself right now..."
Soma had wandered off alone from the crowds, staring up at the sky. She began to feel loneliness set in.
[i Even with all of these friends, even with someone who seems to have so easily fallen in love with me, I still feel alone... why is that?] Soma wonders. [i Could it be because how much I miss them?]
"Don't like celebrating with the masses?" A voice asks from behind. "Or do you just prefer being away from everyone to hear yourself think?"
"Wha-... well... I really don't know why I'm over here." Soma answers as she turns around to see who she's talking to. "Huh... you remind me of someone."
"I get that from time to time." He says. "You may call me Genya."
"Genya... that sounds familiar too." Soma says. "Well anyway, do you happen to know why you're over here at least?"
"Enjoying the night for what it is." Genya replies. "It's rare to see such a storm like this."
"I mean, it's just rain and lightning." Soma states then looks back up to notice what looks like a lightning storm. "Or... not?"
"Lightning storms are a beautiful sight to behold." Genya says. "It's almost like a free nightclub."
"Heh... I guess it is." Soma says.
Eggman almost fell out of his seat in surprise, but he was even more surprised when he saw, in all his glory, Gerald Kintobor, and it almost made him shed a tear because his grandfather had been kind to him in the past, but before the timeline was changed, Gerald was gone. Eventually they headed to where Gerald was to perform a reverse process to get rid of Eggman’s condition
"Hi Raoul, and yes, I do know... did you not hear me say it earlier?" Soma says. "All we have to do is just reverse what happened!"
"But wait... if Sonic was involved... wouldn't he have to get involved in it too?" Maria asks. "Wouldn't that remove his speed as well?"
"Oh, I didn't think about that..." Soma says. "Maybe we could-"
Suddenly, the wall behind the monitors is ripped off by some kind of unique explosion. With the last light of day shining through, the silhouette of a familiar person comes into view.
"It's been far too long." The old man says. "But I've finally returned."
"That voice... grandfather, is that you?!" Maria exclaims.
"Yes, it's me... I'm sorry for what you both went through prior to this moment." Gerald Robotnik says as he steps down into the room. "This war ends now, and I know how to fix the damage that was done to you Ivo."
Raoul finally finished dealing with the soldiers and badniks with the others, and he quickly hurried into the bowels of the ship just to find Soma, but he got lost for a while, then he found his way to the very part of the ship where Soma was, along with Maria and the two Kintobors. “Soma, I’m glad to see you weren’t hurt.” He said, before he stood beside her, being noticeably shorter than she was. Ivo looked at them, and sighed. “You must already know about how I ended up like this...an experiment gone wrong...which made me like this, and Sonic what he is now...” Ivo said before he sat down.
"Well, that would be me." Soma says. "That time stone you had in that one base of yours that was attacked, I ended up using to get to ARK just before it was attacked."
"She put herself in the way of the gunfire so I wouldn't get hurt." Maria adds. "I'm only alive because she nearly died just to save me."
"Of course it wasn't so easy to get back, but at least that detour to another point in time ended up curing her illness." Soma says. "I guess it did also save me since I was bleeding badly and got patched up fairly quickly when that happened."
Meanwhile, on the outside of the wall of the control room, an old man who looks like old version of Eggman appears through some kind of digital teleportation.
"Thank you Adio." The old man says. "I don't know if I could ever repay you after this is over."
"You can thank me by helping restore goodness in the world like you wanted!" Adio says through a device the old man is holding. "You should also thank yourself for giving me these teleporting capabilities!"
"Right..." The old man says then sets an explosive on the wall meant for only ripping it off. "It's time to free 'Eggman' of his desires to rule all."
Eggman’s face was priceless, his moustache dropped a bit in surprise and in memory. “Wait...but...but I was told she died on the ARK!” He said, confused, holding his head in confusion, and outside they heard the sound of things getting thrown around, presumably by Raoul. “What in the blazes?” He said, but he turned back to hem. “If Maria survived, then what caused her to survive?” He asked, concerned
"Well, we'll leave how we came here a secret for now." Soma says then is appalled at what Eggman said next. "Do-... do you really not recognize her?"
"It's alright Soma, he just needs a little help remembering." Maria says.
"Yeah... well, surely you would remember your own cousin when you had to use her name just to get access to Space Colony ARK." Soma says. "You know... Maria, Maria Robotnik, granddaughter of Gerald Robotnik, your cousin."
[i This may be harder than I thought but I'm not giving up!] Soma thinks.
"Now, again, how does following your grandfather's footsteps lead to wanting control of the world exactly?" Soma questions. "It wouldn't have had something to do with a failed experiment changing you involving a literal bad egg, would it?"
Raoul and the others were busy fighting the egg army and the badniks, but they could hear the fight raging on outside the ship, and Eggman looked Furious at the two girls that had entered. “How did you even get in?!” He shouted, mainly out of surprise from the sudden appearance of the two girls. As he looked at Maria, his face changed to confusion, and slight disgust. “Why do you look familiar, have we met before?” He asked Maria, having only met her a few times, but not remembering. Meanwhile, Raoul was being far from a gentleman while fighting, because he was grabbing soldiers and throwing them into others, knocking them down and knocking them out, and he even threw badniks at the soldiers
"We fly of course!" Soma answers.
"Fly how exactly?" Yoko asks.
"Using planes and whatever else the Freedom Fighters have?" Soma replies. "You not to mention some people are capable of flying and telekinetically sending people to places just with their powers alone..."
"You better hope the Freedom Fighters are willing to go with this plan of yours." Shadow says. "If it fails, it's not just your life that's at risk..."
"Don't worry Shadow, I'll make sure no harm comes to Maria, I promise!" Soma responds.
After some time of convincing others to help in this fight, Soma sets out with Maria using the Tornado X to reach Egg carrier Eggman had been working on at one of his bases, which he also happens to be at.
Tails drops Soma and Maria off on the side of the Egg carrier, out of sight from any of Eggman's troops, then flies off to join the distraction.
The sky starts darkening and thundering as the sun goes down. Rain then starts dropping, forcing Soma and Maria to hurry inside as to not slip from the water.
"Right... if only there was special mice I could follow to lead me directly to Eggman." Soma mutters as she crawls through the vents.
"...What?" Maria questions while crawling behind Soma.
"N-nothing, nothing, just forget about it." Soma answers.
They eventually reach a dead end where they are forced to jump down onto the floor. They look around and spot a door nearby then proceed through it, hoping it will lead to Eggman.
[i I cannot fail now!] Soma thinks to herself. [i Everyone is counting on this plan succeeding!]
Lucky them, it was the command room with Eggman watching surveillance on the monitors of the battle happening.
"Hey Eggman, I have a question!" Soma shouts. "What caused you to suddenly go power crazy when at first you just wanted to follow in your grandfather's footsteps because he was a great man to you?"
