E.S.C.A.P.E. Chapter 22.
It was a dead end, with two more hallways branching out in opposite directions. I looked both ways, trying to figure out which way to go. They were identical meaning they were both dark, long, and dusty.
Everything was like that here. Dark and dusty. And cold. Yes, everything here was very cold. I wondered if I could freeze to death in a place like this. There wasn't any ice anywhere, not from what I could see. So I doubt I could freeze. But there could be some sort of damage, maybe. Or maybe I was just getting paranoid.
I wasn't sure if I wanted to find more Foeds or not. Having scared the first one away, I felt weak and stupid childish, almost. How could I mess that up so quickly? I had to be the biggest freak this side of the multiverse.
Which didn't surprise me really. After a

Oh, troll romance.
You wear me down so much.
Keep my loved ones afar from my poor heart.

But she's the one I'll always, always hate.

Respectfully, I disagree with this statement.
I've seen you love someone else. Yes, it hurt. It hurt like hell. But I've felt worse.
I feel worse now.
You look at me and give me that smile you know I can't resist, and my heart melts.
You tease me in a way that makes me laugh at my mistake rather than be ashamed of it.
You hug me when you see the tears that I'm hiding behind my smile.
You are always there for me, any day, any time, forever.
But then, you tell me how I'm your best friend.
You tell me how you're so glad I'll always be there for you to give you advice on girls.
You tell me you've never had a closer friend and never will.
And I feel like my whole world falls to pieces in the small distance between us.
It doesn't hurt because you like other girls.
It hurts because I'm close to you, physically, mentally, emotionally... and yet that's all I'll ever be to you.
It hurts because I have everythin

My throat chokes on words never spoken,
My eyes ache with the lack of your face,
My arms feel cold with the absence of your body.
You look at me and I feel like I belong,
You laugh and I feel at ease,
You tease me and I feel wanted,
You care about me and it leaves me speechless.
But to you this is nothing,
Plain old routine,
To me this is amazing,
A dream come true.
Too bad I can't tell you.

"What the heck?" he asked raising a brow.
"Sonikuu!!!!" Amy shouted from out of nowhere, wrapping her arms around Sonic in a death-grip, right on the spot where Shadow bit him.
"Gah! Amy, let go!!" he growled, shoving the girl off. She looked confused and heartbroken as the blue blur rubbed the sore spot on his neck.
"What are you doing here this early in the morning?" he asked, for the sky was just starting to lighten with the dawn.
"Tails called me and said that you went out looking for the Chaos Emeralds and hadn't come back yet," she explained. "We waited all night for you, but when you didn't show up, we were worried and called the police to do a search party for you."
"A search party? Ames," Sonic began and then changed his mind. "Where's Tails?"

I wear your sweatshirt,

I'm not always strong,
And I'm never perfect,
But for you I'll do anything,
Even pretend I'm okay.
I don't want to hurt you,
Your life is hard enough,
So forget about me,
I'll only be bad luck.
I'm always here for you,
But I don't require constant thought,
Focus on yourself,
Because you already see me enough.
Just remember that I love you,
Forever plus a day,
And come back to me safely,
Because these things won't always do.

She moved the probe to a slightly different position on Sonic's stomach so the overall image would be clearer, "The feet."Sonic's Alpha Part 293 years ago in Drama More Like This
At three months now, things were a lot more distinguishable during the ultrasound scan, and Sonic smiled as Shadow, enthralled, let out a soft, "Aaww..."
Though still small, the fetuses could indeed be easily made out on the screen this time - little limbs and all, and their heartbeats, now picked up by the Doppler, were in a steady, comforting rhythm. Warmth filled them both and Shadow pressed a kiss to Sonic's cheek, eyes shining as he gripped his hand a little tighter.
The doctor smiled at them. "Now, do you want to know the exact genders of your babies?"
When she told them that they had three boys and a girl, the look on Shadow's face resembled the face of a diabetic in a candy store. And Sonic actually face palmed when his husband ran out of the

"G.U.N. has encroached upon our territory and will be here shortly," Shadow quickly announced as he and Scourge faced the halls where the countless numbers of hibernating individuals now paid attention.
"Organize into groups and fly out to all the residences that you can think of and warn the citizens!" Scourge ordered.
"Once there, each of you are then assigned to a different household; quickly tell the residents of our situation, and Chaos control them to our rendezvous point. Now, move out!"
The halls became blackened with the beating wings of Drones as the vampire soldiers dropped from the ceiling and took to flight.
"What are your orders, Shadow?" Scourge asked as he ran alongside his king.
"Make sure that everyone in the palace and all those in business areas get out safely and to our rendezvous point above the ARK. And m

He held onto Shadow's arm as they walked through the moonlit corridors, looking for the others, listening to his husband summarize the rest of his past.
Shadow went on to tell his wife about how Gerald had a hard time getting the vampire pup out of the tree that morning because the man was human (his mother had COMPLETELY forgotten to mention that). After some time, the young prince went on to live with Gerald and his granddaughter, Maria, in a cozy little cottage at least 5 miles from the nearest village. This made keeping a rapidly growing vampire in your attic not much of a hassle. Shadow was able to grow healthy and strong, consuming the chicken blood left behind by Gerald whenever the inventor drained the poultry for their dinner. But on some occasions, he'd s

"There's no need to apologize, Shadow," Sonic replied, blushing slightly for being called his 'dear'. "Silver needed your help and you knew exactly what to do. That was very kind of you on your part."
Shadow smiled and went to sit on top of the office desk instead of in the leather chair, placing one leg atop the other. The wine bottle filled with the red liquid caught his attention. Holding the bottle in his claws, he glanced over at Sonic before corking it and setting it aside. He could tell it made him uncomfortable.
"My brother would have my head if I'd have done anything otherwise," he smiled. "Mephiles and Silver have been married for going on three and a half centuries now and they are expecting their first child together. It was the least I could do."
Sonic's mouth almost hit the floor. 'Three and a half centuries!?!? WTF!?'
He quickly regained his composure, asking, "Wait, why would

Sometimes it feels like yesterday when I fell asleep in your arms, when yesterday I actually fell asleep cold and alone with only my teddy bear as comfort.
Sometimes the tears falling down my cheeks reach the edge of my face before I wipe them away because I can no longer count on you to wipe them away for me.
Sometimes the worst feeling in the world is the hollow space between my fingers that yours used to fill.
Sometimes I have myself convinced that I'll be alright and that I'm better off without you.
But most of the time, I miss you so much I can barely function.
Sonic's Alpha Part 31The night rose grey and rainy with the moon hidden within dark clouds. At the vampire palace, on the second floor from the top, lived Mephiles and Silver.Sonic's Alpha Part 313 years ago in Drama More Like This
Silver was very pregnant and had grown to an enormous size and due at any moment. Mephiles was losing it. The Beta now never left the room, let alone the palace, unless it was to get something his mate wanted. Not when any day his child could come.
In bed, Mephiles sat up, silently watching over his dear mate. He watched as Silver slept and breathed in and out with his stomach moving a bit, showing the baby kicking and stretching its legs. Mephiles, who was curious, very much like a child, wondered how he could sleep like that.
Silence was broken by thunder and a whip of lightning tore across the sky, waking Silver in fright.
"Meph?" he cried out as he rose quickly, his back not liking the sudden movement and shot a pain up his back, causing him to groan and placed his hand on it.
"It's ok... It was only lighting." Mephiles calmed do

"Darn it, Sonic, will you stop doing that!?" the kitsune shouted, sliding from underneath the plane and rubbing his head.
"Oops, sorry bro," Sonic apologized as he help the fox stand.
"Oww, I wouldn't be surprised if I didn't end up with a brain hemorrhage because of you," he groaned, rubbing the sore area even more.
"Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm sorry," he said quickly. "Listen, what do you know about vampires?"
Tails blinked. "Vampires? What the heck do you want to know about vampires for?" he replied, raising a brow. Sonic sweat dropped and rubbed the back of his neck.
"Uh, you know, heh I uh, just saw this new movie. Yeah, movie!! I just saw this new movie about vampires the other night and I'm a big fan all of a sudden!" he lied, laughing sheepishly.

Sonic's Alpha Part 21Moonlight shone in through the thick curtains of the Alpha King and Queen's bedroom, awakening Shadow. He opened his glowing eyes and closed them for a moment, mumbling something under his breath. So he stirred and sat up, stretching and showing off his muscular body. His ears perked when he heard the faint shuffling beside him. He gazed over to see his beautiful mate turn over and curl up closer to his side, giving a content sigh and purr in his sleep. The ebony furred male smiled and gave his cobalt queen a gentle kiss on the cheek. Slowly, the blue male stirred and opened his beautiful glowing emeralds.

A soft smile spread across the peach muzzle.

He'd searched all day, actually; only to come across the area as the sun was beginning to set. But, he wasn't about to stop now.

As the evening drew closer, the moon started to rise and could still be seen in the sunlit sky as the hedgehog traveled across unknown land. Sonic could feel the fur stand on the back of his neck, and immediately afterwards, he could hear three individual sonic booms.
"What up, Blue?" Scourge smirked, appearing to the right of him in seconds.
"Well, hello, handsome," Sonia smiled, now on his left.
"Sonic," Manic merely said, right beside Sonia.
"Scourge, Sonia, Manic," Sonic replied, acknowledging their presence, trying his best to suppress a growl.
"Is something wrong?" asked the only female of the group.
"It's nothing," he answered.

They'd all hit supersonic speeds a little while back, with Scourge and Sonic in the lead. Heck, if he didn't know any better, he'd say they were all his clones only with different fur. He loved every minute of the adrenaline rush that he was getting and the cool night air slicing through his quills. He could see the smirks on their faces as well. They were enjoying it too. 'Where have they been all my life!?' He thought as they approached the towering palace not too far in the distance, the half moon behind it making it look all the more menacing. Sonic's eyes widened and he gulped, finally remembering his predicament. He wasn't racing towards Eggman's newest hideout or anything. He was running to meet a vampire, the Vampire King to be exact!!
12. DeathThe most beautiful moments in life, the ones that mean the most, the ones that alter everything... They're the moments where you're closest to death.12. Death3 years ago in Emotional More Like This
Nothing makes you appreciate what you have like having it slip right through your fingers. Nothing makes each day seem brighter than looking at life through a dim outlook. Nothing tastes as good as breath of fresh air when you thought you'd never see the light of day again.
Death is brought to us as a natural end to our lives. It's brought to us when we no longer have a purpose here and we're better off to go. It's given to us as something we need. That's why it's inevitable.
And yet, death is the most painful part of life. It doesn't hurt us-no, we hardly feel a thing. But it hurts those around us. It creates a hole in them that will never be filled. It fills them with an emptiness that can never be cured. It's the single worst pain in the whole world- losing someone you love.
Maybe we don't just die because it's our time. May

Sonic leaned back on the examination chair/table he was sitting on. Shadow had taken him to see a doctor they were considering for prenatal care. His stomach was in knots; doctors' offices made him very uncomfortable. He could remember spending a lot of time in them when he was younger because of all his battle with Eggman. May he rest in peace. He eventually outgrew the pain and could withstand a lot more hits the older he grew, but every time he stepped into a doctor's office all he could think about were the needles and medicine he'd seen as a child. Sonic still didn't like needles, which were now his greatest fear since he'd conquered his battle with water.
"Relax," his husband told him. He comfortingly touched his arm. "She's not going to cut you open or anything like that. It'll be okay."
"You would be nervous too if you were in my position."
He smiled. "Yeah, I suppose I would."

So, there he sat on the floor next to his ceiling-high bedroom window, impatiently tapping one clawed hand on the cool marble floor while the other came to rest on the ever-so-slight curve of his stomach. He woke up alone again, Shadow having left a few hours before nightfall. He'd left a note saying that he loved him and that he had to work very late which meant that he probably wouldn't get to see him tonight. Of course, his uke was upset and cried about it, but he guessed that was the price he had to pay for being married to a king in the middle of a war with G.U.N.

He looked around and saw that his mate was nowhere to be found. The uke sighed and just as he stood from bed, his stomach lurched and he clamped a hand over his mouth, bolting into the bathroom. He barely made it before he violently puked. Peach hands gripped the porcelain sides of the toilet as he emptied his stomach. No matter how hard he tried to stop, it kept coming. After some 5 minutes or more of dry heaving, the weakened male managed to pull the handle and flush away his stomach's contents. He sat on the cool tile floor, panting heavily and wiped the bile from his mouth. He couldn't understand this. He hadn't eaten in two days and just the thought of food nearly made him sick again.
