veron heads to meet with his girlfriend bonnie, who was babysitting some little kids at the pizza place downtown. she had asked him to join her as she was a little worried. it was rumored an ex insane asylum inmate worked at there and she wanted him to help her watch after the kids. she sighs, looking at her watch to see he was running late. the kids were behaving fine now that they had some ice cream and pizza to eat. she used to like coming here until they got those robotic animals. she knew there wasn’t anything to worry about, but couldn’t help from being a little creeped out by them, as they looked almost exactly like the kids she was watching as well as one that had an uncanny resemblance to her. this only made her worry even more, if this was some kind of foreshadowing.
she calls veron. “hello?” “where are you? the kids are behaving, but you said you’d be here” “i’m almost there! traffic is a little heavy right now and i’m stuck at a light. i’ll make it up to you tonight, okay?” she sighs. “at least try and get here before i have to take them home. the parents said to take them here for lunch and then i’m supposed to bring them back home in an hour” the light turns green and he pulls into the parking lot of the restaurant. he walks in and she hangs up, smiling. “glad you finally got here.” he hadn’t been here in a while and looks at the robotic animals on the stage, then looks at bonnie and the kids. she sees his expression and shakes her head. “don’t ask me. i didn’t ask them to design them that way” he nods, hugging her. “sorry for being late. i should’ve just hoofed it here with that traffic the way it was”
she nods. “could you watch the kids while i go talk to a manager? that employee i’ve heard about might be here and i need to make sure the kids aren’t in any danger” he nods and sits down with the kids, who were all staring up at the animatronics, who were performing their normal act. he looks away from them, a little bothered by the looks of them. ‘how do kids enjoy those things? they look weird’ he thinks as he sips his coffee he had grabbed on the way here. bonnie walks down the hallway to the security office to see mike schmit, the security guard there, observing the monitors. she taps on the door and he glances up. “hello? is something wrong? you kind of look like of the the animatronics” she sighs angrily. “don’t remind me. is that ex-mental patient still working here?” he shakes his head. “nope. the boss thought it was bad for business if someone like that worked here. some people say he murdered a child back when this place was under different management.” she pales. “are you sure they aren’t here?” he nods. “shouldn’t be. he sometimes visits the place to say hi, but i honestly find the guy a little creepy. he always wears nothing but purple. never did trust the guy” she nods. “that fills me with joy…” he caught her sarcasm. “sorry. like i said, you shouldn’t have any problems. though i find it a little creepy that you and the kids you’re watching look so similar to the animatronics. i hope that isn’t a bad sign or something” she walks back down to the public area. the security guy had no idea about much here, but knew his rumors.
veron looks up. “so, anything we should worry about?” she shrugs. “the guy watching the cameras said the person comes to visit sometimes. shouldn’t be hard to miss. he said the person wears a lot of purple” veron nods. “okay. how much longer?” she checks her watch. “45 more minutes. but i wish i hadn’t come here. i just found out a child might have been murdered here a long time ago” he shakes his head. “i doubt it. probably just a rumor.” she couldn’t shake the bad feeling she had gotten ever since she arrived here with the kids. “veron? i don’t know if this is worth it. everything here is just bothering me.” “you could call to cancel. but it’s only for a little while longer. i’m sure everything will be fine” she shakes her head. “don’t say stuff like that! you’re acting too relaxed! i seriously think something is wrong here!" He had been trying to hide his concern as well. "I am worried. Everything feels wrong here. It may just be coincidence, but the robot animals looking like you and the kids can't be normal. They look exactly like you four down to eye color. i noticed a door to an employee’s only section. i’m going to talk with the camera guy and use my g.u.n badge to check back there. if i take more than ten minutes back there, take the kids and get out of here”
she nods, knowing even he couldn’t ignore everything around here. he goes to talk to mike. he looks up. “oh hey! i remember you! you used to come here when you were younger!” he nods, smiling. “i used to enjoy coming here. still did until today. something isn’t right here. i’m with the military police and i’ll have to ask you to allow me to look around the back area. something about this place rubs the wrong way” mike shrugs. “go ahead. i haven’t been back there myself, never had a reason to look. the crazy guy who wore purple, vincent? i think that’s his name, used to go back there all the time and not come out for anything other than to grab some food and drink every once in a while. he always wore these heavy black gloves with red stains. i’m pretty sure it was just sauce from the pizza he was eating.” veron nods and walks down the hall. ‘this guy seems so clueless and harmless. whatever is going on here doesn’t involve him.’ he thinks as he walks into the back area, glock 20 drawn. the pistol’s flashlight illuminates the dark area. the door to the employee’s section was a big metal door that looked like it hadn’t been opened in ages. he slowly and carefully opens the door, making sure no one was in there waiting for someone to open the door. he switches a light on back there, but starts to wish he hadn’t. the room was full of hanging carcesses and bones, hung by rusty meat hooks. numerous torture and mutilating tools lines the shelves and walls, giving the entire room a dark and gruesome setting. he notices the black gloves mike had mentioned. he then notices a note carefully written in purple ink.
this is rather amusing, today some rabbit girl and three little kids walk in for some pizza. they look exactly like those robots i had the boss order, saying the kiddies would enjoy the new looks as they looked realistic on this planet. i plan to snag them once that black fox with a chip on his shoulder leaves. he could cause some issues if he notices me. especially after that idiot security guard told them all about me…
veron pales, running out of the room to try and warn bonnie, but was too late. they were no where to be seen and the the security guard mike was against the wall, clutching his stomach with a spilled drink by him. he walks over and check the wound. “get up. it isn’t that bad. i noticed a first aid kit in the office” mike painfully nods and veron helps him up and gets him to the office, where he bandages the wound. “what happened? where is bonnie and the kids?” mike shrugs, feeling better now that he wasn’t bleeding as much now. “i don’t know. i saw vincent enter the place with a knife and forced your friend and the kids to follow him. i walked out to get a refill on my drink and noticed him. he stabbed me, knocked me against the wall and left with your group. i don’t know where they went” veron nods. “thank you for helping me. just try to rest so the wound has time to heal. call the police and tell them a g.u.n agent is in need of backup. they will put up a perimeter and we should be able to catch this guy” mike nods, picks up the phone and dials 911. veron walks outside and looks around, trying to spot the person, knowing they couldn’t have gotten too far. he doesn’t see them and curses under his breath. police sirens sound down the road. police and SWAT teams were locking down the surrounding area.
he calls tails and he answers. “yes veron? why’d you call me on my emergency number? what’s wrong?” “some killer who used this pizza place i went to to help bonnie watch some kids at took her and the kids. i may need your help. please, i don’t want anything to happen to them” “okay. i’ll call shadow as well. he knows first hand what can happen to someone close. he’ll want to help” veron sighs. “fine. just hurry” he hangs up and notices shadow sitting there holding his custom 44. handgun. “you said you needed help?” he nods. “yes” shadow walks into the restaurant and into the lair in the back room. he looks around and finds what he was looking for. the killer left notes. he walks out and notices the security guard approaching veron, who was on the phone with the brass at g.u.n hq with a knife. he doesn’t even hesitate and shoots him in both legs, knocking him to the ground. veron jumps and turns around to see shadow holding mike to the wall. shadow picks up the knife. “think you were going to try and stab him, huh? start talking or the knife will be in you instead” he smiles. “nothing i can say will change what will happen to them.” veron walks over angrily and puts his pistol up to their head. “oh yeah? what will happen to them, huh? where are they?!” he smiles again. “who said they ever left? vincent is going to have them put on a show for everyone to enjoy”
shadow walks back into the restaurant, knowing what they meant and looks into one of the mouths of the robot animals. “veron…” he looks at shadow with a saddened look, fearing the worse. “what? please tell me it isn’t…” he nods. “it is.” he checks each of the animatronics. “i’m sorry veron. but… they’re all dead” veron couldn’t take hearing this. he had always feared something like this would eventually happen in some way. he knew it. he pulls the trigger, ending mike’s life. he spits on the corpse. he walks over and checks each of the animatronics, saving the purple one for last. when he checks that one, he covers his mouth. he couldn’t take it. tears start to go down his face. “dammit… dammit, dammit!” shadow normally didn’t care about these kinds of things, but veron went through the same process and treatment he was put through, so he saw him as a brother, so he felt bad for him. then he notices vincent watching from the the back room. then closes the door, but shadow was too quick. he teleports into the room and slams them against the metal door. he was laughing the entire time. “you goddamn think this is funny? you sick bastard!” shadow changes the fire mode on his gun and unloads the whole entire 15 round mag into their stomach, turning their midsection into a bloody mush. he drops the now shot in half body onto the ground. veron hears this and was glad the murderer was dead, but it didn’t change what has happened.
tails gets there and veron was sitting on the stage, a mixture of anger and sadness on his face. he walks over. “veron?” he doesn’t respond, too out of it to answer. shadow walks out. “leave him be tails. bonnie and the kids are dead. they were killed and stuffed into the animatronic suits.” he was shocked. “veron just called like ten minutes ago! how’d they get killed so quickly and stuffed into the suits if you two were here the whole time?” shadow shrugs. “that’s what i don’t understand. we would have noticed the guy do all this. the security guard had been helping the killer. he tried to kill veron and distracted us” tails nods. “that explains the body at the front entrance. where’s the killer?” shadow drops the empty magazine from his gun into his hand, quickly loading bullets back into it. “shot in half in the back. he tried to lock himself back there, but i was able to get to him before he could escape.” tails nods and walks back there, but doesn’t see a body. “then where’s the body? there’s no blood or anything over here” shadow was confused. “then explain the blood all over me genius.” he shrugs. “i don’t know. but it doesn’t look like they’re dead” shadow sighs. tails looks over at veron, who was holding a small box he had taken out of his pocket. “this just had to happen, didn’t it? i thought she would be the one… i don’t care if the killer gets caught or killed. i just want this to all just be a bad dream or something. this can’t be real. she can’t be gone”
tails puts a hand on his shoulder. “veron, i’m sorry” “are you? you haven’t had to deal with this! if you had gotten here sooner, this wouldn’t have happened! how would you feel if that precious unicorn of yours died, huh?” tails had to admit he was right. “guess i didn’t think of that. but it can't be fixed” “why not? all those machines you build? you mix potions, you live on a planet half the time with a shitload of magical creatures i didn’t even think existed! there had to be someone who could fix this!” “veron, it isn’t that simple. no one could just snap their fingers or push a button to bring someone back to life. it’s impossible. not even sonic’s mother couldn’t bring back her husband and she’s considered one of the most powerful beings in the solar system” veron sadly sighs. “i know… i’m sorry for yelling. i’m just… trying to tell myself this couldn’t be happening and hoping this is just a nightmare. the way i’m feeling right now tells me this is all real. some jackass murderer decided it would be fun to fuck up my life” tails decided it was best to let his cousin greave. shadow and veron write down their reports and leave the crime scene.
that night, the bodies are brought in for examination of what killed them. the kids were all dead from stab wounds, but were finished off by strangulation from the suits. bonnie wasn’t dead though, she could sense she was on a cold, steel table and opens her eyes, looking around at the room around her. it was really cold and she wasn’t wearing anything. her body had terrible pains, feeling deep cuts and a few broken bones. but she could still move. she sits up and freaks some people out, who were preparing their tools to examine what they believed to be a dead person. she could hear familiar voices, even sobbing. the two forensic pathologists look at her in surprise and she looks back. “what? what is it? where am i?” the nurse answers. “w-we thought you were dead!” “what? dead? why?” the doctor understood what was going on. “do you remember what happened?” she blinks. “i remember seeing someone approaching me and the kids i was watching and then everything goes black. are the kids okay?” they shake their heads. “no. they are all dead from bad stab wounds and strangulation. we assumed you’d be the same way. i’m afraid your parents have been told of your supposed death. are you feeling alright?” she shakes her head, wrapping her arms around her bare legs. “no i’m not. my body hurts, i can’t think straight and i feel like i failed. i promised to watch after the kids and now they’re dead under my watch. what about veron? he was there with me. please don’t tell me he’s dead too” they smile. “no. he sustained no injuries physically. emotionally? he got a psychological test before leaving. he’s going through grief and loss. he appeared to have cared deeply for you. haven’t seen someone so broken in a while to be honest” she tries to get up from the table, but recoils in pain. “ah! i can’t feel my legs! i think they’re broken” they nod. “you’re probably pretty badly hurt after being stuffed in that tight robotic suit. i’m surprised you survived that. you’re taller and slightly broader than the kids and they were crushed inside the other suits.” she looks down in misery. “please stop reminding me of what happened. it isn’t helping. could you get my parents? i really want to see them and let them know i’m not dead.”
they nod and the nurse goes to get them. they were about to leave when she runs over to them. “Wait! don’t go!” they turn to her. “what is it? can’t you leave us alone? our baby girl just died” she smiles. “she was actually just unconscious! she had requested you come see her. be careful though, she has quite a few broken bones due to what happened” they were in shock. “but we saw her body! she wasn’t breathing!” “just follow me!” veron gets home and plops down on his chair, not wanting to do anything else today now. he flips on the news, knowing what just happened would be on there. ‘breaking news. the local pizza restaurant called Freddy Fazbear’s pizzeria has been shut down due to four murders that took place there by two employees that worked there. one of the suspects were killed in a firefight with police agents at the scene of the crime. the other one’s location is unknown. they are considered armed and dangerous. anything you notice involving the suspect is to be reported to the police! the suspect is wearing bloody purple clothing, has yellow eyes, and is a wolf! now for our next detail on this case’ he didn’t want to watch this and was about to turn it off when he sees the bulletin for the story. ‘one of the four victims turns out to be somehow alive.’ ‘we have an update on this! while examining the body of the oldest of the four victims, they wake up! 21 year old bonnie has awakened and is being treated for various injuries sustained during previous events.’ bonnie looks up when her parents enter the room. they gasp and hurry over to her. her mother starts talking. “bonnie sweety? you’re alive! where are you hurt? how bad is it?” she smiles at her parents. “well, my legs are broken, so are a few of my ribs. i’m having trouble seeing through one eye, as it’s a little swollen. i can’t remember what happened. i feel bad about the kids though, they didn’t deserve to die so young. if i had a choice, i’d rather it be me instead of them.” her father shakes his head, tears in his eyes. “please don’t say that! we don’t want you to die! we’re so relieved you’re alive! we’re sorry that the kids died, but there was nothing you could’ve done. you couldn’t have known it was going to happen” she starts crying. “i shouldn’t have agreed to go there. if i hadn’t taken that job, none of this would’ve happened. no money is worth this…” she hugs her parents. “i want to go home. my body hurts so much…” the doctor speaks up. “she will be moved to a medical room to be treated for her injuries. because of what happened, you won’t be charged any fees. it would be wrong after what has happened” they nod. “thank you” bonnie is slipped into a hospital gown and is pushed in a wheelchair to an emergency room.
veron rushes there, catching up with her as the doctor was pushing her into the room. she was happy to see him, but also kind of sad. “veron, i’m sorry for asking you to find out what was happening. i shouldn’t have sent you away. if you had been there…” he sadly smiles. “don’t worry about it. i’m just glad you’re alive.” she faintly smiles, feeling too worn out to really respond. her legs are positioned up in the air and the doctor x-rays them to see where they were broken, relieved to see they weren’t too badly broken. “miss bonnie, i’m happy to say your legs aren’t too badly broken. it should take about a month for them to heal with them in a cast. but i’m afraid you’ll be stuck in a wheelchair until then’ she nods. “thank you. what about my ribs?” “i x-rayed them, they don’t appear broken. it’s probably just the pain from all those nasty lacerations on your torso. you have several deep cuts that will need to be stitched shut once cleaned and examined to make sure they aren’t infected. i’m surprised your injuries weren’t more severe” veron and the doctor walk outside the room.
“so she’ll be okay?” he nods. “yes. it will take a while for her to recover, but she won’t die from her injuries. i’m guessing you were at the scene when this all happened?” he nods. “yes. i was in another part of the the restaurant when it happened. bonnie and i are good friends. i just couldn’t believe it when she looked like she had died. i’m really happy she’s alive. i really appreciate you helping her.” they nod. “it’s what i do. she’s lucky. what she went through isn’t something that many people could live through. i think the reason why she survived is because the stab wounds she sustained weren’t fatal and she was positioned in that suit in a way that wouldn’t strangle her. she’ll be put into a cast and given stitches. she will have to be in a wheelchair like i said. so you may have to help her out” veron nods. “no problem. i’d feel mean if she went through this all and left her alone. i care too much for her to do that” they nod. “i understand you had already started grieving over her when you thought she was dead. why so early? i’m no psychologist, i’m just curious”
veron understood that. “Well. i have always feared something bad would happen to her and when i thought something did happen, i couldn’t take it. i honestly love her. i have for over a year now. i’ve known her since we were kids. probably my only friend growing up.” they understood now. “you seem pretty happy now that you know she’s still alive. what about the killer? aren’t they still on the loose?” he nods. “i’m afraid so. but they are being searched for by the police. they will eventually be found. i would go after him myself, but want to make sure bonnie is kept safe. news that she survived have gone public. so the killer may try and come back.” veron watches over bonnie as she slept after the operation to stitch her up and fit the casts on her legs was finished. he looked at the box he had been holding back at the restaurant. he wondered when would be the right time to ask her. after what she just went through, probably not now. it would take at least a month for her to fully heal. she was also scheduled for emotional tests to see how she was coping for the next year. he notices she was starting to move around in her sleep, like she was struggling to escape something. she was dreaming about when she was stuck inside the robotic suit, crushed up in the tight space, feeling her bones breaking and pain overtaking her body as she loses consciousness. he puts a hand on her shoulder and she calms down and drops back down into a peaceful slumber. he knew she would have nightmares about what happened and knew this wouldn’t be easy for her. he leans over and gently kisses her cheek, silently promising to never leave her side to help her recover.
