*He smirked back at him, still adjusting to the sight. So… so much green. Like the hills! Concentrate! He crouched down, fingers brushing against the jungle flooring, flexing a little to test the pressure he could put on the ground. He looked like he was ready to pounce. In a way, that’s exactly what he would do: a controlled pouncing motion. Turbo was lucky to partner in this race with Sonic: both of them had an intense appreciation for the simple joy of working to the limit, of watching the environment shift in their gaze, and the love to race. On-planet racing would give him another subtle pleasure, of the wind on his face. It was a beautiful thing, and even if he lost, he would treasure it.*
*It took him a moment to adjust to the spore thing. It was a little bit of a hindrance, and he stayed behind Sonic cautiously, watching for any tricks - like the wall just ahead of them. If they could get fast enough, they could run straight up it, but Sonic himself wasn’t going nearly fast enough — aaah! Springs! Clever! He grinned even wider and closed in on the substantial, cautious gap he’d given them. Excellent, he could do this!*
*Aaah, but perhaps Turbo was counting his chickens before they hatched, seeing so suddenly Sonic took a slight pit stop and grabbed onto a device nearby and started doing…pull ups? One, two. One two!
Eventually, Sonic was hoisted up onto a higher vine-pipe-like pathway he could run on at what full speed he could use with saving his ring energy. He was back in the lead in no time, and Turbo couldn’t see him! Eventually, Sonic hops right back down and the loop is in sight! But still rather far away. Who’d get there first?*
*He would remain on the ground. That was his focus; as long as there was no obstacles, he’d make his way on the surest path he could see, and even if Sonic was going to use mechanisms to speed himself along or cut his route a little shorter, he would still try to win. He’d just have to push himself harder.
He put on another burst of speed, hustling hard. Come on… come ooooon…*
