The city seemed to look a lot different from the last time the family went to the dimension. Everything looked so new. Blaze held Silver’s hand and walked next to him, she noticed he was a little shy and hid his face from the public.
Topaz looked at some fashion stores, “Hmm, fashion stores hits a bell somewhere…” she said, Flame heard and looked around, “Maybe that store there could hold details about where anyone can be.” He said, pointing to a large store with gems all around it and new clothes on display.
Ember smiled, “That dress looks like the one I’m wearing.” She said. Blaze held Silver close to comfort him from the public. They entered the store; the store was empty of costumers. Silver was a little relieved. “This must be a shop that holds clothes for display, but you can only order them.” Topaz said.
Blaze saw a figure at a sewing machine; she looked hot and bothered from working. The figure was a white hedgehog, with yellow hair tied in a ponytail, she wore a light turquoise shirt with dark blue skirt and dark blue high heels. She also had silvery make-up, a belt and golden bracelets.
“Mummy, maybe she has some details.” Blaze said, pointing to the figure. Ember agreed and went to ask. “Hang on a sec darling would you please?” The figure said. She added the finishing touch too her dress and was quite proud of herself.
“How can I help you ma’am?” She asked, turning around, she saw Topaz and did a massive gasp and eyes widened,” Topaz! Darling! Where in the world have you been!” She said and hugged Topaz close. Topaz smiled and hugged back, “Diamond the Hedgehog.” She said. Silver looked at Diamond in amazement, she looked really beautiful. Diamond looked at Silver and gasped even more.
“Silver the Hedgehog! I thought I’d never see you again!” She shrieked and hugged Silver tight. Silver was shocked on how she acted. “Diamond, that’s a nice name ma’am.” Ember said, “Why thank you young Miss, and I must say, that dress your wearing looks so stylish on you!” Diamond complimented.
Ember smiled, “Thank you Miss, I’m Queen Ember of the Sol Dimension and this is my husband Flame and my daughter Blaze. I see you’ve realised Topaz and Silver.” She said. Diamond curtsied in respect. Blaze giggled, “Your dresses look lovely.” Blaze said, “Why thank you darling, at least someone appreciates my talents, unlike a certain daughter of mine.” Diamond muttered at the end.
“Daughter?” Flame asked, then a yellow hedgehog with her quills tied in a ponytail, wearing bright clothing came down other. “Meet my daughter, Midnight. She is Silver’s oldest cousin.” Midnight just glared at Blaze and Silver, almost like she was the leader of a group of squires. She just turned her back on them and crossed her arms.
“What bad manners.” Flame whispered to Diamond, “Unfortunately, not easy being a mother of someone who is nearly a teenager.” She said, “So how can I help you?” Diamond asked, “Do you know where any of our siblings are?” Topaz asked. “I’ve other heard that Amanda was working at a gun store, not a place for a women like her, I beware if I was you, ever since Ivory’s death, she has been rude and disrespectful.” Diamond said.
Silver shivered nervously when he heard the word ‘gun’. Ember picked Silver up and held him close, “My babies are staying with me when we get there.” She said, “Thank you for your help ma’am.” Flame said and shook her hand. The family left the store and headed towards the darker part f town, where the gun store was. “I knew Amanda was goth, but I didn’t know she was bad, she use to be very sweet.” Topaz said.
Silver was nervous, but knew he must get his family together, even if he has to conquer his fear, he gulped as they opened the door to the gun store.
