E.S.C.A.P.E. Chapter 3 I needed to collect my thoughts. It was only the only way to keep sane in this place, I figured. I got comfortable, sitting down and putting my leg in a position where it didn't hurt.
First thing to sort out: My location. It was impossible at this point to pinpoint where I was in the world, but maybe knowing where I was in the labyrinth would help. I would be able to, at the very least, find safe havens within this place. Maybe see if the Foeds had a nest anywhere and make sure to avoid that place at all costs. If I couldn't beat one Foed, imagine the rest of them Squirming, writhing, biting, eating, snarling
The thought was enough to make one shiver.
As for my location, I let the topic slide. For now, it didn't matter. Just as long as I got stronger, and stayed away from wherever the Foeds were coming from, I was safe.

I want her dead.
I can't handle her.

I breathe water.
She breathes air.
I swim in the ocean.

I am majestic.
She's a spider.
I gave her my heart.
She gave me the finger.
I feel like handing her a bouquet of flowers.
I feel like stabbing her in the stomach.
I want to kiss her.
I want to kill her.
I want her in my arms.
I want her corpse in front of me.
Oh, troll romance.
You wear me down so much.
Keep my loved ones afar from my poor heart.
I have others to love.
But she's the one I'll always, always hate.
I love her.

"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

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

"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?"

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

"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

"I'm trying!!" Sonic cried out in return, his voice strained.
High above the planet Earth, within the Space Colony ARK, fellow vampires continued to Chaos control onboard to their temporary place of dwelling after G.U.N's attack. Many were wounded and were being treated for their injuries as Scourge and the others made sure everyone was alright and that everything was under control. And they all flinched whenever they heard their Alpha Queen scream.
Dr. Autumns and fellow nurses stayed back and let Shadow try to calm his mate through his current contraction, staying silent and ready for anything. Shadow watched anxiously as Sonic's throat tightened into a series of stuttered shouts as another contraction wracked through his frame. His hands gripped the sheets, pulling up the sheet from the mattress and his knuckles going white.
Shadow's dead heart felt like racing; he was nearly bursting from within himself as
Sonic's Alpha part 7Sonic the Hedgehog soon found himself searching all over for where he'd been last night. 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. He wanted to get to the bottom of this and he wanted some answers from the king himself.Sonic's Alpha part 73 years ago in Drama More Like This
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.

"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 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."

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.

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!!
Sonic's Alpha Part 22Not too long after Shadow left, Sonic was awakened from his sleep by that sharp pain again. He groaned and sat up, hands coming to wrap around his abdomen again. 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.

"Is it true?" Dark Sonic asked blankly, still in his trancelike state as the dark aura around him faded but still left his dark fur.
"Is what true, Sonikuu?" he asked as he hesitantly approached his mate.
"Is it true that if G.U.N. finds the ARK, they will take my pups away from me?"
Shadow tensed slightly and swallowed, hoping nothing bad would happen when he answered, "Yes, it's true."
Dark Sonic finally blinked before then asking, "Where are the Drones?"
"They're three floors beneath us in the same room as all of our artillery and military equipment."
Dark Sonic slowly held out his hand to his mate, saying, "Give me the Trigger."
Shadow frowned slightly and gripped the detonator tighter as he said, "I don't think that's a good idea, Sonikuu "
The dark aura instantly rose around him once more and Sonic finally made eye contact with Shadow, death-glaring at his husband as he bared his lengthened fangs and angrily hissed, "Give me the Trigger, Shadow. NOW!!!"

Sonic went pale and started to fidget and laugh nervously, making Shadow nervous as well. Shadow was certainly worried sick about his mate now. The younger male had collapsed on the floor and seemed to be in a trance, repeating incessantly, as a mantra: "No, no, no."
Shadow run to his side but he didn't know what to do to comfort him. He knelt in front of his uke.
"Sonikuu, calm down, please." But Sonic didn't seem to hear him. The crimson streaked male sighed and caressed softly the younger male's cheek.
"Look at me, Sonic." He said cupping his chin. "Stop it. You're stronger than this."
Sonic the Hedgehog seemed to get out of his stupor and looked at Shadow with full blown madness and rage in his eyes. His fur even flashed a dark blue.
"You " he hissed. "You knew all along and you didn't tell me anything. You let this happen! This is all your fault, you bastard, how could you!?"

'What the - -' his mind rushed and he desperately tried to stand, almost falling in the process; he couldn't remember anything except the time he spent with Shadow on the beach. He made his way to the glass wall and saw a school of fish swing by. He placed his hand to the window.

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.

To make matters worse, he'd just watched the news and the world below was abuzz with the fact that G.U.N. made the 'startling' discovery that vampires truly do exist by 'stumbling upon a large vampire nest while in their travels'. The Commander was to be given a medal in a day's time for 'making such an incredible find', for 'putting this threat to humankind on the run', and 'being in the process of wiping out this threat before it's too late'. The Earth was in celebration while he and his people were suffering in the process.
