Of course not!
Thank you for understanding, Am—
【・ヘ・?】: Ever tripped in front a bunch of people?
NO. I’m not clumsy, and I certainly don’t fall down stairs sometimes because my fists are too big to hold onto railings.

|I think Fini want to see you.|
Sure, but I don’t wanna see that creep.
“What are ya talking about?” By now, Nack had forgotten how this argument had begun, or what it was that he was even supposed to have said.
“I told you to get lost and be on your way!” He swung his weapon around and aimed it at the echidna again. “Baby, hiding in the dirt when you’re scared!” Wiping the mud from his face, he got to his feet. He was covered in muck now, but he didn’t care.
“One last chance. Go away- ‘fore I shoots ya!
Knuckles glanced in the direction he was headed. It was fairly free of annoying purple weasels. At least compared to where he was now.
"Whatever. You’re not worth the effort." He stepped around the hole he made, and, as grumpily as he arrived, he stormed out.
The echidna had buried himself in the ground! HA! Big baby~ thought Nack, and, picking himself up from the ground - noting with relief that the lightning seemed to have disappeared, where does lightning come from in the middle of daylight, anyways? - he chuckled to himself at Knuckles’ apparent cowardice.
That was, until the ground beneath his feet began to shudder, and all at once, he was lifted from the floor, then bowled off his feet in a flurry of mud and earth. “Pah!!-” it was all over the place - dirt everywhere! As he toppled onto the floor amid the muddy mess, the weasel found himself rolled over backwards amid a pile of earth. It was matted to his fur, it was in his mouth, it was in his eye- “pah pah pah—!” he spat it all out.
Well, where had that come from…? Oh. Of course! That damned echidna must’ve tunneled right underneath him.
“What the hell did ya do that for?!” yelled the weasel, as hoisted himself to a sitting position and raised his hand to try to rub the mud out of his eye. “I tolds ya I’m not interested in touching you! Stop trying to touch me!! PAH! I don’t wanna roll around in the mud with you!”
"Maybe if you took back what you said, I may skip the part where I beat the crap out of you!"
There you go, just prove you aren’t a pushover and people will leave you alone.
The ground began to tremor, which startled Nack - thinking it to be an earthquake, he quickly shot a concerned glance about himself. Thus, he was looking in the opposite direction when a green flash of light was sent soaring toward him… yet he heard the echidna’s yell, and turned his head toward Knuckles—
“What the-” Nack gulped and, spying the lightning as it sliced through the air toward him, the weasel performed a rather flamboyant leap to the floor, faceplanting himself into the ground in order to avoid the attack.
He panicked and, from the ground he lifted his hand, raised his weapon, and began firing out a round of bullets in random directions. He wasn’t really looking at what he was doing, nor did he have much understanding of what had just happened- he was just acting on impulse now. It was his usual reaction to things like this. Don’t understand something? Then shoot it!
At the first hint of gunfire, Knuckles burrowed into the ground. It’d be really easy to just leave by tunneling away, but this was a matter of principle now. As such, the echidna burrowed towards Nack and hollowed out a shell around the piece of land he was laying on.
Afterwards, he positioned himself right underneath Nack and lifted both the weasel and the half-ton piece of earth he was on and tossed them in a random direction. Panting, he clambered out of the hole this left him standing in.
