Something like "I want you to have eyes only for me,"
there's no possible way for me to just say it out loud.
At the conclusion of this twisted love,
what can you see? - Chorus to Acute by Vocaloid (Miku, Kaito & Luka)
Just as Amy expected, her new board was light but quick and easy to make turns both loose and sharp, She could feel in her heart that this board would bring her victory.
The Pink Rose would be her ticket to Sonic!
Amy usually would have had a fit that Sonic refused to go to Twinkle Park but none of that'll matter once it can proven that Amy Rose belonged with him; as a lover and partner in life.
Finally, getting to her destination she spotted Vanilla tending to her garden. The adult rabbit turned and her already beautiful smile brightened. "Why hello Amy, what brings you by?"
Amy jumped off her board and it hovered by her. "I brought a gift for Creamy. Is she here?"
"She's playing in the backyard." Vanilla answered.
Just as Vanilla said, Cream was playing with Cheese on a little table with finger sandwiches and a teapot. "Hey Cream! Lookie what I got."
She held up the cute little board and Cream gave a squeal of excitement.
"Oh wow! it's very pretty."
"Yeah Tails' did a great job on all of them." Amy replied before sitting down with Cream at the table. Cream poured her some tea.
"Miss Amy what will you do if you win the Grand Prix?" Cream asked. She honestly didn't think someone as young as her could win, She was only in it for fun but Amy was in for glory.
Amy smiled and swallowed a bit of food. "Not 'If' but when I win the Grand Prix I'll have Sonic's heart for sure."
Cream frowned at this. "But," She stuttered for the right words. "What if it doesn't?"
She hadn't thought that far honestly. how would she react if Sonic denied her feelings again? Memories of all the winded sessions chasing the back of an unattainable figure loomed in her head as it always did. Seeing her best sister upset hurt Cream and she quickly tried to take back her words.
"Don't worry Miss Amy! you've been chasing Mr. Sonic for years, eventually you'll catch him."
She said giving a little smile but it only served to twist the knife in Amy's heart further.
Almost five years she's loved Sonic.
five years he's run and she'd give chase.
Five long, disappointing years of being only seen as a friend or worst; a kid sister.
"Yeah, I'll get him...eventually." Amy gave her cup a sip before standing up abruptly, suddenly in a much bubblier mood. "Here's an idea, lets go to the Chao garden early today. It's best to get out and we can practice on our boards before tomorrow."
Cream nodded. "Okay."
Speeding through Metal City, Sonic, Knuckles and Tails jumped over incoming cars and flawlessly curved around all types of bends. The boards were of perfect quality if Tails' did say so.
"Alright once more around the track. Loser buys me a chilidog." Sonic said with a grin.
"Yeah right!" Knuckles countered ready to actually win this mock race.
Tails counted down and they flew off with Sonic in lead followed by Tails and a frustrated Knuckles holding the back.
"So much for 'Perfect Quality' Tails," Knuckles yelled to the duo tailed fox. "I moving slower than a snail!"
"Don't blame the gear blame the rider." Tails said.
Sonic laughed "Good one buddy."
The boys rounded the corner, all three neck and neck dodging incoming or oncoming traffic loudly honking at the intruders of the road but they find the challenge of it exciting not to mention necessary for the 'Anything goes' attitude of the Prix.. Besides, they wouldn't actually harm anyone so no harm, no foul.
"What the?" Sonic skidded immediately to a stop followed by Knuckles then Tails causing a huge pileup of red, blue and orange fur.
"What give Sonic? I was about to beat you!" groaned pushing Tails off his backside.
"I doubt that Knucklehead."
Indeed Rouge and Shadow stood there watching as the trio of heroes clumsy fumble to sort out their bearing and retrieve the boards that hovered away. Sonic was first to speak. "So what brings you by? haven't seen your ugly mug around for a while."
Shadow huffed and crossed his arms. "I was avoiding you so I guess I succeeded."
"Aw that's not nice buddy."
"I'm not your buddy."
"Anyways!" Rouge interrupted, "Tails we have a request of you. We're going to join the Prix also so we're gonna need boards ASAP."
"What!? bu- but how can I make custom boards for both of you so soon. the qualification round is tomorrow." Tails' eyes grew as big as saucers just thinking about having to make two more sets of unique boards.
The fox sighed "Alright I guess but it'll take quite a while."
"Just have it ready by tomorrow." Shadow said before turning to leave.
"Wait a minute," Knuckles started. "How did you learn to ride?"
"Don't worry about that sugar just try not to eat my dust, oh and I expect a romantic dinner date once I win."
Her words infuriated Knuckles and he swung his hand ready for a fight. "You're batty, if you think I'm doing that!"
Rouge's lids lowered as she walked closer to the hotheaded echidna who grew redder with each step.
"Be a good boy Knuckie and perhaps I'll go easy on you." She winked at the flustered Knuckles leaving the other three males disgusted. Rouge has been so outright in her flirtations toward Knuckles lately it was a wonder his thick head still didn't understand she wanted him.
whether it was said or not though, Rouge loved to tease so she was content simply getting under his skin.
Shadow growled getting everyone's attention, Sonic's spines raised in response. "Get started on the boards. lets go Agent Rouge we have work to do."
"Agent Rouge? geez no need to be formal…"
The two walked off, Rouge floating besides Shadow trying to get some kind of further response from the dark hedgehog.
"Well...I guess that's all for today." Sonic chuckled glad to be out of such an awkward situation.
"That means I have'ta get to work on their boards but I'm going to need a lot more parts."
Sonic patted Tails' shoulder. "Don't worry bud. big brother Sonic's gonna help ya."
"Lets go then before they come there some kind of meadow or garden we can practice at." Knuckles said before hopping on his board ready to zoom off.
The Chao Garden!
it just hit him Sonic had wanted to stop by the Chao Garden to meet Amy and Cream at least for a minute. Amy was so cute when she asked on the inside he just couldn't say no.
Sonic stuttered for a moment, not sure how to bring up the next subject. "Uhm actually I'm have to head off somewhere."
"But I thought you were going to help me find parts. Where are you going" Tails asked. Sonic could hear the disappointment in his voice but this would be his last chance to see her before focusing on the race.
"No where important just. a place I gotta get to real fast then I'll be back before ya even notice I'm gone."
"Whatever Sonic," Knuckles snapped. "Meet us tomorrow in the Signup station."
I won't stay long, just say hi then leave. in fact I won't even say anything unless they see me. but that'll be weird…
what do I do!
Sonic had no time to further figure that out or have time to turn back as the entrance to the Chao Garden was straight ahead.
Sonic swallowed the lump in his throat and headed inside.
He was greeted by lush fields and a beautiful little waterfall where Chaos of all kind played and coo'd to one another.
It was then he spotted Cream with Cheese laying on the glass coloring and Amy sitting beside them and she had a crowd of Hero chaos begging to be played with first. Hearing her laughter brought a smile to his face.
The three weren't the only ones in the garden. Red eyes peered at them from the treetop before focusing on an incoming Dark Chao flying his way.
"What'd you discover at the cave?"
"Babylon; Jet, Wave, Storm. Look for treasure. key." it answered brokenly.
As an agent of G.U.N this particular Chao was still learning Human/Mobian English. the other agent Chaos were more fluent; however, Shadow liked how this got the job done much faster.
"Treasure? does it involve the treasure winners receive at the Grand Prix" Shadow asked. The Chao shrugged and said. "Was only told about a key to treasure. Babylon want treasure. That all Hero Chaos know."
"I see, good work Erebus. go report your finding to headquarters and have them do searches on any kind of babylonian treasure." Erebus gave a final nod before flying out the garden. Shadow returned his gaze to the three characters below him. Sonic stood like an idiot scared to move closer to a couple of girls.
"Still a fool Sonic. still a Fool…"
Amy loved the chao. She loved how carefree they were and childlike, always ready to play and she took easily to them and they to her. She picked up a beautiful white chao to snuggle it.
"Miss Amy how come you haven't chosen a chao for yourself?" Cream asked setting down a purple crayon.
"I'm not sure, I guess I'm so busy I couldn't care for one properly. perhaps after the Prix I'll pick one."
Cheese cheered happily over this as did the other chaos.
"Hey girls. I found some time." the Blue hedgehog said strutting over, showing all the confidence on the outside he didn't have on the inside
Amy attacked the him in hugs and kisses.
"Uh...yeah uhm. Ya'know I was coming this way anyways with Tails and thought I'd stop by real quick."
Cream's long ear perked up and her little pink nose twitched. "Tails is here!?" she exclaimed "Why won't he join us?"
"Oh well he's feeling under the weather and I'm not staying anyways, just came to say hi since I told Amy I'd stop by so 'Hi'"
Amy hugged him tighter then. "Oh Sonic. I'm so glad you're here, come sit with me for a while." She lightly tugged his hand so'd he'd sit on the grass beside her.
His muzzle began to heat up. "I already said I can't stay long."
Amy didn't respond to this. "Cream was just talking about picking Chaos and perhaps we both can care for one. how does that sound?"
Cream imagined a happy Amy and scared Sonic holding a baby chao playing house like she'd often played with Cheese. "You two would make great parents!"
And just like that Sonic face exploded in red and Amy all but fell over in swoon.
"Parents? Cream that's - that's impossible."
"Why?" Amy asked, Sonic could her the anger start to bubble. "You don't think I'd make a good mommy?"
"Sure Ames, I mean look at ya. you're caring and beautiful…"
"You think I'm beautiful!?"
Alright Sonic, you can either say yes and admit to her or say no and hurt her feelings either way is bad…
"Well actually.. Whatcha' drawing Creamy it's really nice." Sonic decided the best course would be changing the subject. Although it still obviously upset his pink friend he was easily forgiven once he whispered.
"You're an amazing girl Ames never forget that."
"Oh Sonic!" Amy wrapped her peach arms around his neck snuggling against his muzzle happily and in that moment Sonic was content right there.
