Riley didn't reply. "Nothing, huh? I know what will cheer you up." Tails said, smiling. Riley sniffled and looked at Tails. "What do you think will possibly cheer me up?" Riley asked. Tails smiled calmly. "You'll see." With that, Tails flew away. As minutos turned into hours, Riley's mga kulay started to fade away, meaning she was sad.
