150 Years. A lot can and has changed in that time, yet (Y/N) is still trying to get over her prolonged sleep. Why was she here? Why was she alive? And why was she guarding a powerful artifact? Shadow the Hedgehog had answers. Not all of them, but enough to help. But would he help? The Ultimate Lifeform is sworn to G.U.N, and they always get what they want. But why were they after such a powerful stone? Can Shadow really trust the people he calls friends? And why on earth did he have to get stuck with (Y/N)? DISCLAIMER: Some of the characters I have used in this story are completely fan-made and in no way tie to the Sonic universe (games and/or comics). These characters are purely for this story alone. Sonic, Shadow, Tails, Rouge, The Commander/the use of the name G.U.N, and Omega are all owned by SEGA, (Y/N) and any other characters mentioned are owned by me unless stated otherwise.
