Reid Stories: Sonic Movie Scene Plus Vecto: Vengeance Chapter 4.3

Here's a scene from Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie:

"Sonic the Hedgehog refers to the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series released by Sega, and starring its eponymous mascot, the video game character Sonic the Hedgehog. The video game series is the primary product in a multimedia franchise, including products in a wide range of media." - Wikipedia

Here's where you can buy the Sonic CD game for Android phones: Sonic CD.

And here's my Vecto: Vengeance scene of the week:

(Previously: Vecto blames Leroy for not helping beat Morphaal years ago. He demands that Leroy tell him where Zendora is, but Leroy walks away.)

"You coward!" Vecto yelled, firing his gun.

Leroy spun around and sent the energy blast away. The speed had flipped the brim of his hat up some, revealing his blue eyes covered by rugged reddish-brown hair.

"But tell ya what. I'll let ya vent your anger," Leroy offered, stepping down the steps of the porch to face Vecto. "You win, I'll tell you. I win, ya gotta stay for brunch."

"I don't eat," Vecto said.

"Didn't say ya had to," Leroy said with a smirk, standing 6 feet 5 inches tall, close to Vecto's height.

"It's agreed," Vecto acknowledged, readying his blaster. "Now come at me."

Leroy twisted his hat snug on his head. "I ain't the one ask'n. So gimme yer best shot."

Instead of firing, Vecto sprinted at Leroy, moving in a blur as he pounded his shielded fist in Leroy's face, causing a wave of loose sticks on the ground to ripple in the air and hay to tumble from the nearby carriage--all from the force of the strike.

Yet Leroy's head was only slightly tilted with Vecto's fist still pressing against his jaw. The straw from his mouth, on the other hand, was missing. In response, he quickly spun his hand around the other and pounded his palm at Vecto's chest, sending him sliding across the grass.

Vecto looked down, baffled by his strength; it was even stronger than before.

"Eh, Jebadiah!" Leroy yelled over to his fellow farmer.

"Yes, master!" the Amish-looking guy dropped to his knees and bowed.

"Wha? Ain't I tell ya not to bow and call me 'master'!?"

"My apologies, Mr. Johnson," the bulky guy said in a well-spoken tone. "What do you ask of me?"

Leroy glanced at Vecto, who seemed to be secretly charging his Blaster 3,000 as he talked. He then looked back at Jebadiah and smiled.

"Ya gotta tend to the chickens now, boy," Leroy said. "We gotta fix this fella some good ole eggs for some brunch."

Jebadiah bowed and walked off as Vecto took offense at that comment and fired his charged shot. The blast, however, froze in midair, inches before Leroy's face. It bowed and changed directions. Leroy watched the energy soar in the sky and clutched his fist as the it simultaneously blew up.

Vecto watched the blast explode and the zero point energy trickle down like fading fireworks, knowing good and well how Leroy had stopped it.

"Still sharp on your telekinesis, I see," Vecto stated. "But we both know you can't move me and my shields."

Leroy shook his head. "Only by fist, my boy ... only by fist."

Vecto came at him again, this time swinging low, striking Leroy's side. He then came around with his other arm and pounding the nozzle of his gun in his chest, firing another blast.

The energy sent Leroy sliding back, his white shirt now torn and a red burn mark imprinted on his chest. A human would have died from that blast, but Leroy was no human--he was Zarlero.

"Ya shield's turnin' yellow, my boy," Leroy said, shaking his head in dismay as he folded his hands behind his back. "It gets'a yellow when it's mad."

"I don't get angry!" Vecto yelled back, running at Leroy, launching his fist in rapid succession as Leroy skipped back, dodging it.

"Then why d'ya got those feelin's?" Leroy asked as he jumped back and kicked Vecto, sending him in the air.

"Patterns and mimics, only," Vecto yelled back as his flame boosters ignited, hovering him in the air. "A false reality for a disposable machine, is all!" Compartments swung open from his floating arms and small missiles launched Leroy's way.

The farmer leaped in the air as the missiles exploded below him. He flew at Vecto and elbowed him in the head, then spun around, kicking Vecto back toward the ground as gravity nudged him down. Vecto's large feet crashed to the surface as he fell to one knee, holding his chest. Leroy, however, lightly floated to his toes.

"Can ya hear it? You're shield's a' cry'n. It's a' akin'," Leroy warned Vecto. "Every hit I make puts ya in pain. If you ain't listenin' to it, it'll feed from anger."

"Foolishness," Vecto said, standing up. "My body only acts on programmed responses learned from humans. I am nothing more than a shielded block of metal with a CPU."

"It ain't so, kiddo," Leroy said, lumbering toward Vecto. "You got a life in those shields."

(Can Vecto beat Leroy so he'll tell him where Zendora is? Find out in the next installment of Vecto: Vengeance!)
