Chapter 1: Espio's Killed
"Gotcha. We'll take over the case for ya." Vector said, holding the phone in one hand and writing what appeared to Charmy total gibberish. "Can you describe her?"
Vector continued to write on the notepad. "And you say she's insane?"
The other voice on the line responded quickly, but Vector got the gist of it. This girl was mentally insane in a way the asylum's doctors couldn't diagnose. "We'll try and find her." Vector responded, hanging the phone up.
"What's this about, Vector?" Espio the Chameleon asked him.
"We got a case that includes an insane psychopath, that's what. Come on, guys. Her doctor said he meet us at the asylum."
A little over half an hour later, the three detectives were meeting with the doctor of the insane girl. The doctor was a hazel colored fox with emerald eyes and a pair of glasses that bounced up and down every time he opened his mouth.
"What can you tell us about her, doc?" Vector asked.
"Let's see…She was either sociable or a loner, depending on if she ever had a touch of reality in her. In fact, she even tried to murder a couple of the other inmates with a butcher knife, but one of the security guards managed to catch her before she even swung once."
"Talk about intense."
"You're telling me. She was pretty much an avid drawer, although most of her drawings were of people dying one way or another."
"Would you happen to have one of those drawings?" Espio questioned.
The fox pondered Espio's request for a moment. "I'll have to see, but it'll have to be tomorrow. It's almost time we got everyone to bed."
Charmy yawned the moment the fox finished.
"I guess it's time we head back too." Vector said, taking note of Charmy's tiredness. "We'll talk to you later, 'kay doc?"
The fox nodded, adjusting his glasses, although it didn't seem to do any good. The glasses slid right back down to the original position as he led the Chaotix out.
Not anyone got the feeling they were being watched.
Later than night, as all three of the Chaotix were fast asleep, not one of them heard the door push itself silently open. Or pushed open by the same Mobian who was the one the doctor described.
She immediately made her way to Espio's room, being extremely careful not to wake the sleeping chameleon. She tiptoed her way over until she was about two inches away from Espio. Then, her hand made its way into her pocket, pulling out a revolver with a silencer on it. Taking careful aim at the chameleon's heart, she silently pulled the trigger.
Not a sound could be heard as the bullet made its way into its designated target. Blood sputtered on the sheets as Espio instantly awoke, reaching for one of his ninja stars in an attempt to ward off the intruder.
However, Espio was moving a little too slow that night as his killer made a shot through the center of his head, lodging itself in his brain, shutting off all its functions. She smiled a very creepy smile as Espio found out he could no longer support himself. His whole body just went limp as the chameleon died.
The intruder forced her way out the way she came in, already imagining the detective's surprise when they saw Espio's dead body.
