Silver the Hedgehog (c) SEGA
Blaze the Hedgehog (c) SEGA
This next part and several others to follow will be narrated by Blaze since she is telling Shadow and everyone what's going on. Basically, a year ago in Blaze and Silver's timeline, the two were about to make out while traveling between space and time. That was when a mysterious chaos emerald appeared out of nowhere and the two grew suspicious of its sudden intrusion. This part is pretty much the foreshadowing mentioned back in #7 when Silver had that nightmare. Sadly for him, that nightmare was an actual memory.
