Shade raised an eyebrow when Tangerine raised her voice; he had calmed down a little. "You're right but what should we do? I mean, we can't just stand here, can we?"

Wolf's message confirmed Shade's suspicion that no-one had a clue what to do next. He looked around and sighed, rubbing his head nervously, "that tiger dude could return any minute so maybe we should grab a car and drive out of here? Unless one of you can think of something more useful?"

"You got a better plan?" Tangerine replied to Wolf, glancing at him. She sounded rather testy about being questioned when no one else was offering further ideas. At Shade's suggestion, she snorted. "Oh yeah, I definitely wanna be in another car wreck today when he fucks the car with more explosions. And that's only if we can get in one and get it started before he attacks again."

Her eyes squinted. "...Where even are the local cops? They shoulda responded by now to all this bull. At least we'd have a distraction..."

Wolf shakes his head slightly in response.

"Sorry... I don't." he replies, "I don't know enough about you two or the guy we're fighting to figure out a strategy... He just... seems really hard to hit. I guess we need some way to not miss... however that can be done."

Shade huffed a little at Tangerine's response, even though his suggestion wasn't that amazing. He then sniffed and rubbed his head, saying, "well, if he could cause this, then it's likely that he distracted the police somehow."

Shade looked at Wolf, then Tangerine, sighing, but then he had an idea, "why don't we just go back down the alleyway? We were doing that originally before he distracted us; there isn't anything stopping us." 

Shade looked over at the alleyway, but felt something similar to a chill up his spine. This could have been cause by the great luck the alleyway had brought the three of them. #sarcasm

Tangerine looked to the SUV that was still blocking the alleyway entrance from where it had skidded to a halt before. Her tail twitched as the aggravation was growing worse. Her attention turned back to the dark-furred hedgehog.

"There's literally an entire car stopping us, unless you're gonna lift that and throw it, too," she pointed out to Shade, "Or do you expect that I'm gonna just drag this guy over the top of it?" The dragon gestured to Wolf.

Wolf looks from Shade to Tangerine and back.

"Let's not fight among ourselves. Please..." he says, glancing back and forth between them.


Meanwhile, on the roof of one of the building the trio was standing beside, their tiger pursuer was watching them for a couple of moments. In the short time since he'd confronted them, he'd managed to get up three stories of the building. Within arms reach of him, he had a metal box, open on one side, that appeared to be a section from a ventilation duct.

He moves over, grabs the box, then steps back over to the edge of the roof. Judging the distance for a few more moments, he tosses it down towards Tangerine and Wolf. Then the tiger seems to disappear from view again.

Shade twitched a little, even he was getting a little aggravated from the situation. However, Wolf's comment made him snap out of his anger. He gasped a little, "oh you're right Wolf, I'm sorry Tangerine, it's just this place, I can't really think straight," he rubbed his temples and overall, he looked a bit calmer.

Shade took a deep breath and, opening his mouth to speak, almost shat himself when a weird metal box lands loudly beside Tangerine and Wolf, "afrgh!" Shade's heart raced, so he put his right hand on his heart, and with his left hand, wiped his forehead, "fuck, what the hell was that?"

Tangerine turned her gaze back to Wolf, ready to keep arguing. Shade seemed to calm down quickly, though, and apologize as well. Despite this, it wasn't much to quell her frustration and she snorted her discontent in reply. The reptile glared at the pair for a moment.

There wasn't any time to do much else before movement from somewhere overhead put the dragon on full alert again. She didn't really register what was coming right at them, but instinct kicked in and she suddenly yanked hard on Wolf to move him back with her off towards her left. She also attempted to reach out and grab Shade by one arm to pull him over with them, but while there was a chance she did get a grip on him, she also could have missed and just let her claws briefly catch across the sleeve of his hoodie. Whether one or the other happened likely just depended on Shade, really.

And despite the speed of her reaction, there was little to no coordination in the dragon's attempt to duck back from the duct piece. She only stumbled back a couple of steps before her weight and Wolf's (and potentially Shade's) sent her crashing back down to the pavement yet again. She was certain she'd never hit the ground so many times in one sitting before today.

Tangerine winced and grunted through her teeth as only just turned enough to keep from landing spikes-first and doing some real damage to herself. There was a good chance she could have pulled either or both of the two teens onto her as well, which might cushion them against hitting the pavement, but not by much.

Wolf lets out a startled cry as Tangerine grabs hold of him and pulls him off balance towards her. He stumbles into her and falls with her to the ground, as there is a crash of metal almost right where he'd been standing a moment ago. The duct would have missed him regardless from where it landed, but it would've been close.

Wolf lands on top of Tangerine and bounces slightly on impact then falls over and onto the ground beside her.

While Tangerine didn't really say anything but rather glared at Shade and Wolf, Shade understood why and didn't say anything. Suddenly, his hood was grabbed by Tangerine and yanked towards her. Shade took a quick breath before he was unable to do so temporarily. 

Before he knew it, Shade thought he was safely beside Tangerine and Wolf but Tangerine seemed to stumble back and fall on the ground, dragging the two teens with her, meaning Shade was nae standing anymore either. When he landed, his head and upper torso landed on Tangerine's stomach while the rest of him just flopped onto the ground. However, Shade wasn't sure what was harder; the concrete ground or Tangerine's scales.

The impact with the ground was bad enough, but having both Wolf and Shade land on her as well only further knocked the breath from her. Her grasp on the duo released promptly after. The dragon opened her eyes quickly, worriedly looking to see what had landed near them and raising her right paw towards it in case she needed to attack.

Upon seeing no one immediately there, Tangerine coughed a couple of times and lowered her paw. She knew she needed to hurry and get to her feet before another attack came but, covered in aches and feeling more than a little sluggish, it was hard to bring herself to shove Shade off of her and climb back to her feet. Plus, both of them were close and warmer than she was. For at least the next couple of moments, she remained there on the road, catching her breath and considering the choices she'd made today that had resulted in her current situation...

Wolf rolls onto his back and glances past his feet. He sees the box of metal that had just fallen to the ground. He then looks over to Tangerine.

"Thank you again." he says to her.

He then rolls over onto his front and maneuvers himself up onto his paws and knees.

"Can you get up?" he asks her.

Shade lays there for a couple of seconds before sliding off Tangerine's torso, "ugh sorry," these words managed to slip out as he slowly came back into reality. 

He rubbed his head before pushing himself up and sitting on the ground with his left leg laying straight on the ground while his right knee was in the air; his left foot near his butt.

Once Shade had also moved off of her, Tangerine huffed out a breath. She glanced at Wolf briefly.

"The better question really is should I?" she replied, "I'll probably just end up down here again in a couple minutes."

Despite her more apathetic response, after a moment or two more, her heavy tail slid across the ground, allowing better leverage as she used her arms to slowly push herself upright to a sitting position. The dragon glanced around, squinting at the metal box, then looking up towards the roof of the nearest building.

"He's up on rooftops..." she muttered crossly.

Wolf watches Tangerine.

"Well... at least we are still able to get up." he says, "However good that is for us."

He then follows her gaze upward.

"How is he getting around so quickly?" Wolf asks, not really expecting an answer though.

Shade stayed quiet for a minute while he caught his breath and reassessed​ the situation.

His gaze shifted between Wolf and Tangerine as they conversed before it went to a rooftop.

Shade then heard Wolf pose a question, so he suggested, "well he's a tiger, right? Won't he have an evolutionary advantage built into his genes that allow him to travel across short distances very quickly?"

Tangerine raised an eyebrow a bit at Shade.

"Well..." she started, "if I've learned anything in the last year or two, it's that cats in general have a real talent for gettin' into places they don't belong."

She bent her legs up closer to herself, grunting softly and starting to slowly shift to get back up onto her feet again. Somewhere in there, she quietly muttered something that sounded very much like, "Fuckin' coward..."

Wolf just stares over at Shade, not really comprehending his answer at all.


"You're not too far off hedgehog." the tiger replies from just past the back end of the vehicle he'd crashed a short time ago.

He was already in the process of tossing a trash can lid at Tangerine, and readying a second one in his other paw, which he then threw a few moments later towards Shade. Both lids sailed through the air towards their targets. The tiger quickly kicked something looking like a wooden staff, with broken ends, up into the air and grabbed hold of it as he took off running. He travels in a wider arc towards the trio.

Shade went quiet and wasn't sure what to feel when no-one seemed to reply to his comment.

However, he just looked past it as Tangerine did make a point about feline felony which Shade nodded to.

Suddenly, the tiger announced his presence by responding to Shade's comment and then throwing something at Tangerine.

Shade quickly scrambles to his feet before the tiger throws another projectile towards Shade but before he could really react, the lid was not far from him. As a quick defensive​ move, he raises his arms in front of his face just as the lid bashes into him.

Only partway up to a proper standing position, the dragon turned her head suddenly as the sound of another voice nearby. She just barely caught a glimpse of the tiger, but there was no opportunity to even really catch what he'd said before something metallic caught her hard across her upper chest. The sudden impact made her stumble back a step and trip over one foot, then fall back onto the street again with a loud grunt. The breath was knocked out of her yet again and she felt her head knock back against the concrete as she made her graceless landing.

Despite the sudden danger, it took her a few moments to open her eyes again. She was dazed from the blow and her only response thus far was to raise one paw up to the sore spot on her chest now.

Seeing this sudden attack is enough to spur Wolf to try and get to his feet. The wound he'd taken to his leg though made it a bit of a challenge. As Shade and Tangerine were both recoiling from the trash can lids, the tiger quickly closes the distance to the trio.

The tiger comes right towards Shade. He swings his broken staff out behind him and then follows through with a wide arc towards Shade's exposed midsection as he runs past Shade's left.

Shade lands ass first on the ground before his back slams down, "fuck," he yelled before pushing the lid off him. He hurt all over but he wouldn't let it slow him down, a lot. Against his body's natural reaction, he pushed himself onto his knees and breathed heavily.

Suddenly, Shade heard footsteps ahead of him and, instinctively, his head spring up and focused on the tiger. He snarled as the tiger drew close and was ready to, likely, attack Shade with his broken staff-stick-weapon thingy. 

Shade's breathing slowed down and as the staff aimed for Shade's midsection. He attempted to drop to the floor, fucking below the staff. If this worked, he would try to swing his legs around and, at the very least, trip up the tiger as he likely ran towards Wolf and Tangerine.

Shade yelling seemed to help draw Tangerine back into the moment. She vaguely heard the tiger approach, but didn't realize just how close he was until she saw the nearby movement of him attacking Shade and the hedgehog responding.

The reptile tensed on seeing their pursuer so close and one might have immediately noted the feeling of static around her just before she clenched the paw that wasn't against her chest. A surge of electricity arced from the ground to her left, seeking to try and get under or even form inside of whatever protected the tiger from her attacks before.

Admittedly, she wasn't as considerate of how closeby Shade was as she attacked either and there was a chance that, depending on how he or the tiger moved, he might receive a zap as well. But in good news, with her current state, the electricity wasn't powerful enough to be lethal or even result in a knockout. However, it would still leave a nasty shock if it hit anyone.

The tiger wasn't aiming that low on his swing, so Shade would be able to avoid it by dropping flat. The tiger didn't seem discouraged by the fact that he'd missed though. As Shade attempted to swing his legs out to hit the tiger, it was like the tiger suddenly wasn't there.

Anyone watching would have seen the tiger shift several feet away from Shade's attempted counter attack, without actually appearing to physically cross that distance.

As a result of the tiger's sudden displacement, he was fortunate enough to dodge mostly clear of Tangerine's electric discharge. He's caught by a few stray arcs off from the attack, which stuns him momentarily and makes him stagger back as he shakes off the effect.

Shade watched for the first time up close as the tiger seemed to shift from being inches away from Shade to several feet. He was mesmerised by this power, how did the tiger even know how to control it? 

Can he or is some force just aware of his surroundings and the tiger has to react accordingly? All these thoughts circulated Shade's mind as he pondered the reasons as to how the tiger discovered this power. Was he born with it or was he givlnejflfuchsalvna-

Shade yelped as he was struck by what seemed to be lightning which stunned him and caused him to fall flat on the ground as opposed to low and close to it. Shade twitched a couple of times but soon shook off the effects of​ the shock.

Shade looked up and noticed the tiger had been struck too which means that he was hit, likely intentionally, and Shade was just unlucky enough to be in the way. He sighed and slowly began to move into a crouched position.
