Shade:Ok Maurice,lets go.
Sonic:Ok,where are we going again?
Shade:To the store downtown that got robbed.I'm your new partner.
Narrator:Sonic and Shade decided to walk to the crime scene.
Shade:Where are you from?
Sonic:Right here in Knothole.What about you?
Shade:I was born in Nocturne.What are your favorite subjects?
Sonic:I have none.I hate school.The most boring thing on the planet.No wait,the universe.
Shade:How could you not like school?It benefits you in every way.
Sonic:I pick up learning as I go.
Shade:Yes Maurice, but...
Sonic:Whoa,whoa,whoa.Do not call me by my first name.My name is Sonic not Maurice.
Shade:Fine.Sonic.What do you do in your spare time?
Sonic:I'm a world traveler.What about you.
Shade:I've been doing some writing about my clan in a novel called Marauders.I have recently published a book called Nocturnus over 1,000 pages long.
Sonic:Wow that's a lot of writing how long did it take you to finish it?
Shade:2 and a half years.
Sonic:Oh.Cool I guess.How long will the next one be?
Shade: I'm taking a shot at 3,000 pages.My dream is to open a book store here in Knothole.What is your dream?
Sonic:I go where the wind takes me.Since time doesn't wait for me,I go my own way.
Shade:I like that saying.I should write a book on your family's history.
[Sonic and Shade arrive at the scene when they notice that there is an officer giving orders]
Lieutenant Lupe:Who are you and what are you here for?
Shade:Hello,we are the new detectives here and we were sent here to look into this investigation.
Lieutenant Lupe:Just don't get in the way.
Sonic:By looking at the front door and the cash register,you can see that this is just an old fashioned stick up.They wanted the cash nothing else.Noone was hurt right?
Shade:I'm looking at the report now.Nope noone was hurt.
Lieutenant Lupe:Lock the scene down.You 2 can go home.
Narrator:Later at Bernie's house.
Sonic:[knocking on the door]Moma hurry up!
Shade:Well that was rude.
Bernie:[opening the door]Oh hello.Sonic,who is this?
Sonic:This is my partner Shade.
Bernie:Nice to meet you.Sonic,Manic and Sonia are coming home for the weekend.And come on in the house.
Sonic:Ah,like so what?
Shade:I thought you said you only lived with your mom.
Sonic:Manic and Sonia are my older siblings and they're in college.
Shade:Oh.This is a nice house.
Sonic:Yea my father built it with his bare hands.
Bernie:Oh and did I tell you they're coming home tonight.
Sonic:You better tell them to find a hotel.Because they're not sharing a room with me.
Shade:Why don't you like them?
Sonic:I do.I just don't want them here.They drive me crazy.
Shade:I would like to interview them for this new book I'm writing.
Sonic:Count me out for dinner.I will not be dining with them.
Bernie:Oh yes you will.
Narrator:Later at dinner.
Shade:So Manic,what are you going to be when you get out of college?
Manic:Well,I'm going to be an inventor.I've already made this machine that can comb your hair,brush your teeth,and clothe you at the same time.I've sold 4 for 500 dollars each.
Sonic:That's for lazy people.
Manic:Yea,and you wish you thought of it.
Sonia:So what do you do Shade?
Shade:I'm a detective and a writer from Nocturne.I would like to write my next book on your family's history.
Sonia:That's sounds cool.
Sonic:I think there is nothing interesting about us.It's a waste of your valuable time.
Sonia:No Sonic,running is a waste of valuable time.
Sonic:That's it,I'm going for a run.[zooms out the door]
Bernie:Sonia that wasn't very kind.
Sonia:Ma,Sonic doesn't do anything but run and travel.He's lazy around the house too.
Manic:Sonia's right ma.
