This piece has a very striking style - love the pen and ink style against all of the red!

That makes me think of the "Happy Anniversary" song from The Flintstones.

Genetically Enhanced Hedgehogs Version 3 by Beloved Doll

I know, I know, I whipped through the beginning stuff as if the internet was on fire. Things are going to slow down as we are now entering the territory of material that I wanted to get to for this series. Keep in mind of what was said in chapter 1 in regards to the experimental writing.
Ivo, aka Eggman, is standing in an empty stadium that is within his city. Beside him is Maria on a leash. She is sitting on the floor with her head semi-hung, looking forward and wears a worried expression on her face. Behind her and Eggman is his hover craft, ready to go. Shadow is standing in front of Eggman and Maria but back away from them by several yards. His choker has a new accessory to it; Eggman has added on some kind of strange box on the side of it. It`s small enough so it doesn`t interfere with Shadow`s movement and black in colour to camouflage with his choker collar. He growls a little as he watches Eggman board his hover craft, dragging Maria with him. Once they are inside the machine, Eggman gets the craft to go up into the air to float. With this top side view, he will be able to see everything that goes on. A scowl is still present on Shadow`s face as they ascend upwards over top of him.

Eggman summons up several robots to enter the stadium. As they move into place, Eggman shouts a command to Shadow,"Attack, Shadow!"

Shadow gives off a "hmph!" sound and sits his rear down on the floor, turning his head to the side in a disinterested manner. This makes Eggman angry. He jumps to his feet in the hover craft and yells at Shadow, louder than before,"I said attack! You were my grandfather`s creation! He is dead now! That makes you mine! You better do as I say!"

Shadow tilts his head a little at an angle where his face is more direct towards Eggman, giving him a glare. Eggman`s temper only rises more with this,"Fine then! I`ll MAKE you obey me!"

He grabs Maria`s collar and yanks her from her seated spot. Dangling Maria over the edge of the hover craft, leaving her to contemplate the very long drop she`ll have below her, Eggman continues,"I`ll have her pay the price for your insolence!"

Shadow`s eyes widen as seeing this display. He quickly gets back up on his feet and dashes forward, running quickly. In fact, he runs faster than normal GE hedgehogs. He leaps up, displaying his fantastic jumping ability, which appears to be another one of his special powers or abilities granted to him when Gerald created him. But before Shadow gets too close to Eggman or Maria, something disrupts him. A sudden shock wave of pain surges through Shadow`s body. It`s the worst thing he has ever been through. It`s coming from the black box Eggman attached to his collar. It causes Shadow to stop in the middle of his jump and let out a scream. It`s an ear-piercing scream, which hedgehog hobbyists and breeders call the 'hedgie scream of death.' It is rarely heard but often means that death is near the hedgehog that`s screaming. Shadow tumbles back down to the floor as gravity regains it`s strength over him. His scream ceases when he hits the floor. Shadow lands on his side and at the same time, the surging pain stops coursing through his body from that box. His rear left leg gives a little twitch.

Eggman holds a controller in one hand, pointing it at Shadow. A smirk forms on his face, quite happy that his little add-on is doing it`s job of keeping the black GE hedgehog at bay. Maria, however, looks quite concerned at Shadow. She makes a small noise. But she gets interrupted as Eggman tosses her back on the seat in his hover craft. Maria gives a squeak as she lands roughly on the opposite side of the craft from Eggman.

Shadow gets up to his feet slowly and repositions himself to face Eggman and his hovercraft. He begins to charge at Eggman again. Eggman presses the button on the controller and the awful pain is sent shooting through Shadow`s body again. Shadow stops dead in his tracks, letting out another scream and he falls over on his side on the floor. As is fueled by the success of this second hit, Eggman lets out his infamous cackle. Maria is leaning over the side of the hover craft and has witnessed Shadow being in pain and collapsing. She whimpers softly and feels her eyes tearing up.

Hearing Maria`s whimperings again, Eggman quickly turns to Maria,"Oh shut up with that! Enough already!"

Maria shrinks a little as Eggman yells at her. Shadow summons his strength to get himself back on his feet once again. He stops a moment, shaking a little bit. Then he begins to move again, charging at Eggman once more, hissing. This is quickly followed by the same episode of Eggman pressing that button and Shadow screaming. When Shadow falls this third time, Eggman just smirks,"We can keep doing this all night if that`s what it takes to get you to obey me. You can go the easy way and just do as I say, or you can take this long, difficult road. Either way, you`re going to give in sooner or later."

Shadow opens an eye as he lays on the floor, directing it to look up at Eggman and Maria. His body gives a little shake and he growls quietly. He closes his eye and then opens the both of them, now moving his head to look to the robots that are standing in place, awaiting further orders from Eggman. He moves his legs and works himself into standing up on all four feet.
