I've been in here for a long time. Fang comes and visits me every day.
"Hey Ry!" He said.
He got some keys and opened the door, "Come on! The King wants you."
I swallowed nervously and followed Fang.
Soon we came to the room with the big chair. The cat sat there, staring at me.
"So your Ryan?"
I nodded, "Yes Sir."
He stood up and walked over to me. He opened my mouth and looked at my teeth. "You seem capable." He said after inspecting me.
"You will help Fang and his Mother with their duties."
"Yes Sir." I said.
He nodded, "That will be all."
Fang took my hand and led me out of the room.
Things are hard for Blaze and Shadow, they're still looking for Ryan, and trying to raise their other kids. Don't get me wrong the other three are sweet, but a handful.
Shadow and Blaze are out looking for Ryan, and the kids are with me and Knuckles.
"Ash is throwing mud!!"
I went outside, "ASH!!"
He looked up, "Yeah?"
"AWWW!!" He pouted, but came anyway.
Xena stuck her tounge out at him.
"You and your sister come inside in a few minutes, supper's almost ready."
"Yes Aunt Rouge."
Ash and I went back inside.
"When are Mommy and Daddy coming back?" He asked.
After supper we all watched a movie. Soon, Shadow and Blaze got back.
"Mommy! Daddy!" Ash gave them a hug.
Shadow looked like he's been crying.
"Did you have any luck?" Knuckles asked.
"No." Said Blaze, "The police found more of his fur, and....." She began to cry quietly.
"What?" I asked.
"This." She held out Ryan's glove. It was torn and bloody.
Shadow took it in his hand and closed his eyes.
"Shadow, its ok to cry." I said.
He clenched his fist and began to sob.
I gave him a hug.
"What's wrong with Daddy?" Ash asked.
Blaze walked over to him, "He's really sad."
"Why? What happened?"
"You remember your brother we talked about right?"
"Well, we found out that he died."
He didn't say anything.
Maria gave Shadow a hug, "Its ok Daddy."
I felt a tear slide down my cheeck as Shadow sobbed.
He sank to his knees, I've never seen him cry this much in his life.
The kids looked at each other sadly.
