Back in her own time resting by the Master emerald within the ancient temple, Tikal the echidna was spending time taking care of the chao. She smiled as one of them flew lightly over to her and sat on her lap and hugged her making her giggle. "Oh you little angels", she smiled hugging the blue creature back with great delight while the chao giggled. It was pretty boring being alone but being with the chao made up for her loneliness.
Suddenly a bright green light appeared in front of her and a green chaos emerald. She picked it up then saw another green light appear several feet away from her and a black and red hedgehog with gold rings around his wrists and hover-boots appeared. He looked around before turning his crimson eyes towards Tikal making her shiver in fear. The hedgehog walked up to her and she backed up until he had her against the Master Emerald. "You have something of mine", he said holding his hand out. "Who- who are y-y-you?", Tikal asked shaking in fear. "I am Shadow the hedgehog", he said, "Now give me the emerald". She shook her head though, "This is a sacred artifact. Something which I cannot entrust to some random creature". "I said give it", he growled grabbing her arm. "CHAOS CONTROL", she shouted pointing to the chaos emerald and it vanished. Shadow looked at what she did then turned back glaring at the frightened echidna while the chao ran behind the Master Emerald, "Where did you teleport it to?" "I'm not telling you", she said assertively.
He grabbed her by the sides of her torso which made her let out a little squeal of laughter. "What the hell was that", Shadow chuckled at the noise, "You ticklish?" She didn't answer but her blushing face convinced him. "I see then", he chuckled, "CHAOS CONTROL!" Time froze as Tikal became helpless in the hedgehog's chaos skills. When time resumed, she found herself tied with rope to a palm tree with her arms in the air and her feet resting on the ground. "You going to tell me where you sent the chaos emerald now", Shadow grinned evilly then placed his hands against her sides and tickled her.
"AAAAAA Hehehehehehehehehehehehehehehe stahahahahahahahahap hehehehehehehehehe stahahahahahahahahahap tihihihihihihickling mehehehehehehehehe", Tikal giggled helplessly.
"Tell me where the emerald is", Shadow demended, "or your torture will only grow worse".
"Hahahahahahahahahaha nehehehehehehehehever ahahahahahahahahaha I'll nehehehehehehehever tehehehehehehell you hahahahahahahahahahahahaha", she giggled squirming to lessen the ticklish sensation she felt.
Shadow growled in irritation, "Fine", then sat down at her feet and untied her sandals exposing her orange feet and toes. "Then I'll take the torture up a level", he said taking both her feet in one arm and tickled her soft soles with his remaining hand.
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA NOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOT MY FEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEEET ANYTHIHIHHIHIHIHIHIHING BUT THAHAHAHAHAT HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA STAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAP IT", Tikal broke into a wild laughter.
Several minutes later, the numerous chao wandered over to Tikal and watched her torture. Most of them sat down and watched Shadow mercilessly tickle their master knowing she wasn't in no serious danger. Two chao however flew over and joined in the tickling by rubbing her belly and tickling her bellybutton.
"EEEEEEKKK HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA NOHOHOHOHOHOHOHO CHAO STAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAP HIHIHIHIHIHIM PLEASE DOHOHOHOHOHOHON'T TIHIHHIHIHIHIHIHICKLE MEHEHEHEHEHEHEHE HAHAHAHAHAHAHA", Tikal exploded out into laughter.
"See even your little friends agree with me", Shadow chuckled, "Now are you going to tell me where you hid my emerald?" Tikal shook her head violently in protest and that ticked off Shadow even more. "That's it", he growled then he knelt his head down and began nibbling and licking her sensitive toes.
"AIIIIIEEEEEEEE HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA NOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOT THAHAHAHAHAHAT HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA THE EMERALD AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA IT'S BACK HAHAHAHAHAHAHA AT THE SHRINE HAHAHAHAHAHAHA PLEASE STAHAHAHAHAHAHAP NOW", she cried out in laughter as tears of joy flowed down her cheeks and her face flushed from lack of breath.
Shadow let go off her feet and walked over to the shrine and found his green chaos emerald. "CHAOS CONTROL", he shouted and he vanished leaving Tikal still tied up. The other chao crowded around her some of them smiling mischievously. "Oh please.... not.... you guys... too", she panted. In a swift move, all the chao swarmed over her and tickled every spot of her most of them concentrating on her feet and toes.
"GAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA WHY MEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHE HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA STAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAP GUYS STAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAP HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA", Tikal kept laughing while the very creatures she protected kept tickling her.
