What More Could He Ask For - 12Sonic felt miserable. He could hardly move, his back was killing him, and the pups just wouldn't give his bladder a break. Plus, whenever he moved (which was only a short distance) he would be out of breath. He'd be glad when his pups were born because they were making carrying them rather tiresome and painful.
Shadow tried to be affectionate towards his mate as well as understanding. But his mood swings were out of control.
And one of those mood swings was happening right now.
Sonic snarled harshly when Shadow started nuzzling him, his fur standing on end as he growled, ''Get away from me, Shadow. Now!!''
Shadow's ears flattened against his head; "Sorry..." he mumbled backing away from his hormonal mate.
Sonic sighed heavily, trying to relax, only to near yelp in pain when one of the pups kicked him harshly. His ears pinned to his skull and he started to whimper as his eyes watered, yet another mood swing.
Shadow was quick to return to his mate's side and comfort him.

Sonic was in a deep healing sleep since his energy had been drained to critical levels from the birth. It would nearly be an entire day and a half before he woke again.
Shadow sighed and called for Mephiles, Knuckles and another wolf to carry his pups back to the pack. While he managed to get Sonic on his back to take him home.
The following day, around noon, a tired groan came from a certain cobalt uke. An emerald green eye slowly opened, only to close tightly from the sunlight shining into the cave. So, he turned and buried his face into the body of fur that lay beside him, about to fall back to sleep. His eyes instantly snapped opened and he quickly stood up from the body, thinking he was still with Scourge and trapped back at his former home. He'd unfortunately stood too quick and his weakened legs gave out on him, making him land wit

And Sonic had to admit that he liked it himself.What More Could He Ask For - 42 years ago in Drama More Like This
Shadow actually seemed like an overgrown puppy with some issues as Sonic got to know him further. He liked to play in the snow just as much as pups did.
And Shadow got to see that Sonic was very caring and patient with the pups, even going so far as to letting them climb on his back, pull on his fur, and nip at his ears. He'd be a great mother someday....
Shadow was actually watching the pups clamber over Sonics body.
Sonic simply lay down in the snow, enjoying the fact that all the wolf mothers deemed him safe enough to watch their pups while they went off to bathe in the hot springs. There were a total of 9 pups-- 6 boys and 3 girls. They were a hyper little bunch; if they're yips, barks, and bouncing were anything to go by. And he didn't mind at all when they tugged on his ears;

Sonic was plagued by horrid nightmares that, making his sleep restless as he whimpered and cried out in his sleep. He awoke with a scream, looking around and panting heavily, his fur drenched with sweat.
''Shadow?" He grew more and more worried when he didn't answer. He kept calling out to his mate, wondering where Shadow could possibly be since he was still far too disoriented from sleep to know where he truly was right now.
Scourge sighed, "Would you shut you already?! You stupid b****..." he grumbled, giving Sonic a strong kick to the side.
He cried out in pain from the kick, the force strong enough to knock him off balance and land on his side. He winced loudly when he slowl
What More Could He Ask For - 7By the Sonic awoke once more, Shadow was off of him and gone from the cave. The uke instantly became worried since the moments after claiming were important and crucial to make sure their mating bond was secure. The Alpha was supposed to watch over and bond with his mate til the uke or female regained their energy, who would most likely be weakened from their coupling. Even he knew that despite being so young. Sonic stood to go find him, only to near yelp at the instant pain shooting up his backside. Yep, he'd be in one place for the next few hours. So, slowly lowering himself back to the ground, Sonic rested his head on his paws, wondering where his mate could be at a time like this....What More Could He Ask For - 72 years ago in Drama More Like This
Shadow snarled at Mephiles. He'd taken him from his mate telling him a strange group of wolves from another pack had crossed the border. He went to check it out with his brother and Knuckles only to find a silver almost white she-wolf and two tan wolves waiting for them.

''I can't wait to feel them moving,'' Sonic giggled, ''I just hope they don't kick too hard.''
And then he thought of something.
''How many do you think we'll have?"
Shadow pondered it before saying, "I have no clue, but in my pack--since it's so cold--a normal amount of pups is two. So around that many I assume."
''I was hoping the same amount,'' he chuckled.
Shadow's nose twitched, he sniffed the air almost thinking something was...off. He quickly dismissed it and answered Sonic, "Though, you could have more. I wouldn't mind at all if you did."
''You wouldn't?" Sonic asked with a smile.
Not at all. In fact...I want at least three." Shadow said. The reasoning behind it being that he and Maria had

Of course, Mephiles had come with him and they had both managed to catch a rather large elk. Though right now it didn't matter to Shadow...Mephiles always seemed to be in a bad mood lately. Shadow soon found the source of his discomfort--Mephiles' mate was hormonal and pregnant. Shadow just ended up teasing Mephiles about it through the whole hunting trip the day before.What Are More Could He Ask For - 52 years ago in Drama More Like This

Silver had went into labor nearly six hours ago and the pups had yet to arrive. Amy was inside, along with a few trusted females, helping the laboring uke with the birth. His pained whimpers and loud cries of agony were starting to get to him as time continued to pass.
Mephiles thoughts were racing, his heart pounding against his chest as he paced. He was worried--pups. Silver. Pups. Silver. Pups. Silver.
Then a little while later, after a few grunts and screams from his mate, there was instant silence which instantly made him panic.
Mephiles' heart sank when there was no wailing of pups, no yips...no nothing. His heart snapped and he froze mid-pace. Then...a smile whine.
But he was to be shocked two more times that night, for a little while after the whine of his lone pup, two more individual whimpers could be heard. He could even make out the small congratul

And Sonic seemed to be getting around pretty good on his legs again. He had the slightest limp, but other than that, he was pretty good. Now, all he wanted was a good bath to get all the gunk of paste and dried blood out of his matted fur.
Shadow paused outside the den before entering. He saw Sonic on his legs helping Amy sort herbs and a small smile crept onto his face.
Sonic then caught the scent of the Alpha and turned to face him, his ears going down automatically as he said in a low voice, "...Good morning, Alpha..."
"Call me Shadow." Shadow said coolly. He sniffed the air as his nose wrinkled smelling Sonic, "Amy...has he bathed yet?"
Amy shook her head.
Shadow sighed, "Sonic...would you like to bathe? I can show you where you may..."
Sonic blinked in shock at being
What More Could He Ask For - 1Shadow glared at a young scouting wolf that burst into his den. The younger wolf--he thought he could recall--was named Tails. Bah, what a stupid name. "What is it you want?" Shadow growled and inwardly smiled in satisfaction as Tails shook in slight fear. "We found a wolf...he smells like he's from Scourge's pack. He was badly wounded and deep in our hunting territory. Mephiles and Knuckles took him to Amy so he could get help. Amy...told me to tell you to come to her..." Tails spoke in a fearful voice. His Alpha wasn't the nicest of souls. Even his younger brother Mephiles was better tempered, but both seemed vile to him. With another low growl of annoyance Shadow hefted himself off the ground and pushed past Tails, out of his den and toward the den of Amy who just so happened to be the healer of his pack.

And as he ran out, he nearly ran into the one that he was looking for.
"Shadow, what's wrong?" Sonic asked, having jumped slightly when Shadow nearly ran him over as he was about to make his way back into the cave.

Shadow blinked, but didn't comment and he dropped the rabbit in front of Sonic. It landed with a dull "thud". He prodded the male in the side, "Wake up." He commanded.
To his surprise, Sonic calmed at the sound of his voice, but he was right back at it a few moments later, still not having managed to get free of his nightmare.
Soon Shadow gets fed up with the unresponsiveness of the wolf, "GET UP NOW OR FACE THE WRATH OF HELL YOU LITTLE BITCH!!!" He
What More Could He Ask For? - PrologueHe had been running for what seemed like forever. Having been attacked by his own pack late last night and chased away from the only place he'd ever known, the cobalt wolf ran for his life until he could make out the first rays of the dawn. He was in so much pain. His fur was drenched in his own blood, his heavy panting was excruciating from the few broken ribs he'd received, and his aching legs bore deep bite wounds where his former pack members had tried to break his legs. They'd been out for blood. His blood. And it was all because he wouldn't accept being the mate of his former Alpha. The emerald wolf wanted him dead and the whole pack had turned on the azure Beta. He didn't know what hurt the most, the betrayal or the cold harsh winter wind that made his wounds all the more painful. His running staggered and he tripped,coming to land harshly on the cold hard ground that was blanketed with snow. The area around him turned pink with his blood as he lay there, unable to move any furtWhat More Could He Ask For? - Prologue2 years ago in Drama More Like This
The Institute 14Shadow stared as Sonic entered the cafeteria with Meph and Drake's mates. The entire cafeteria fell silent and every head turned to look at the three Carriers. They weren't staring at them exactly, but at the baby carrier Sonic was holding. Sonic had not been seen after giving birth; he had remained in the dormitories taking care of his newborn pup away from prying eyes. Now, after nearly four months, he was ready to return to the public eye.The Institute 141 year ago in Drama More Like This
Shadow blinked. Meph's mate was starting to look uncomfortable in his uniform. Soon he would be in maternity clothes. Drake's mate, Manic, whispered and told Sonic something. Sonic nodded and Shadow watched as he went over to a table in the corner. Silver and Manic stood in line and eventually brought back food for Sonic. The three of them ate their meals in silence, then headed to their lessons together. Shadow finished his own breakfast and soon headed for the lesson with his fellow Semes.
The room was noisy as it usually was before the teacher
The Institute - 8Life at The Institute settled down again after Sonic's first heat though Sonic's heat was talked about for weeks afterwards. Strangely, everything felt normal again including Sonic and Shadow's attitudes towards each other. They either ignored each other completely or glared poison dipped daggers at each other. However, Silver, among others knew that all was not well between them.The Institute - 82 years ago in Drama More Like This
I have a bad feeling that the drama is only beginning. Silver thought darkly as he watched Sonic throw away his uneaten food. He had been refusing food ever since he had gotten over his first heat. The truth was that he was having difficulty keeping anything down; anything he ate he just threw up again. Silver was worried, of course, but Sonic had refused point-blank to see a doctor, insisting that he was fine.
The three friends sat in the dormitory during their free time one afternoon, chatting happily. Then, all of a sudden, Sonic's eyes rolled back into his head, and he slumped forw

He gently ran his hand up and down Sonic's back, doing his best to comfort him. Sonic's eyes were clenched shut, his face drenched with tears, and his ears pinned to his skull. He gripped the sides of the trash bin as he started to dry heave, coughing every now and then. His whimpers of pain and crying could easily be heard once he'd finally stopped, arms wrapping around his aching belly. His throat burned and his stomach hurt so bad that he just wanted to curl up and die. He was truly thankful that his mate was there with him right now; he was in pain and scared, Shadow being the only other person besides Tails that could calm him down.
Shadow pulled his little mate close, gen
The Institute 5Two weeks later, Sonic was unexpectedly called out of class. Not knowing why, he followed a guard down the hallways and into a small room. A tall thin fox sat behind a desk.

"Hello Sonic. My name is Miles Prower and I'm what you'd call the director here at The Institute. Do you know why I called you here?" the man said with a smile.
"No sir," Sonic answered, shaking his head.
"Well, let's wait for your mate to arrive and then I'll explain what's happening."
The door opened, causing Sonic to turn around. He stared as Shadow, surrounded by several guards entered.
"You may leave," Miles addressed the guards, waving his hand. The guards murmured amongst themselves, but obeyed.
"Come forward, Shadow. Stand by Sonic."
Shadow hesitatingly moved forward. He never acknowledged Sonic's presence in the room which made Sonic feel even more terrible.

"I'm sure everything is fine," Silver said in a soothing voice as Sonic uneasily picked at his food.
Though his voice was soothing, Silver's amber eyes were filled with worry; not only wasShadow missing but Scourge and Knuckles were gone as well.
'This is not a good sign,' he thought grimly.
He kept his eye on Sonic as they went to their afternoon lessons. The azure was pretending that there was nothing wrong, but Silver knew Sonic well enough to know that he was worried about Shadow. Silver turned his attention to the front of the room as Mr. Joseph started their lesson. He tried to pay attention, but he kept turning to glance at Sonic. The cobalt male was staring straight ahead, not listening to a word of what was being said. His emerald eyes were troubled. Silver felt the urge to envelop him in a warm hug and tell him that everything was goin

"What are you oh my god!" Manic nearly passed out when he saw Silver. He and Sonic ran forward. Silver lay in a heap on the ground. "Silv!"
Silver muttered something unintelligible. Sonic and Manic knelt down and glanced at each other before they seized Silver's arms. Silver was awake though his amber eyes were glazed. The first thing they noticed was the smell. Silver smelled heavily of sex and slightly of his mate.
"Silv? Silver, are you all right?" Manic asked.
Silver turned his head so he was looking directly at his friend.
"Yeah. I'm all right," he answered in a dazed tone.
"Come on. I'm going to take you to the showers."
"No I'm okay."
"Babe, you're barely standing up by yourself." Manic turned. "Sonic, could you go into Silver's trunk and get out some fresh clothes for me?" Sonic nodded. He slipped out from underneath Silver's arm and went to the bed. He felt bad for snooping through Silve

"Fine, now leave me alone," Shadow snapped, although Knuckles didn't flinch at Shadow's harsh tone.

Breakfast ended and the Carriers and the Semes started their usual trek to their first lesson. Manic and Silver hung back with Sonic who was finishing up his breakfast. He was slower than usual because of Dark; the six month old was starting to eat food in addition to the breast milk Sonic provided. Once the two of them had finished, Manic took care of the tray while Sonic got up.
"So I guess we've gotta say goodbye to Dark, huh?" Manic asked softly, returning to where they were.

There was a blinding light shining in his eyes that made his head ache terribly. He tried to reach up with his hand to block the light from his eyes, but he couldn't move.

"Hey Shadow, I hear you got a mate," he sneered in Shadow's ear.
"Shut up," Shadow snapped.
"He's here if you want a look at him," Scourge said.
Shadow stared at him. "Really?"
"Yeah." Scourge nodded. "He's standing with Drake and Mephiles' mates."
Shadow rolled over to have a look. It didn't really matter, but he had to admit he was a little curious. There were three Carriers standing at the window, the silver one was Mephiles' mate, the lime green one was Drake's mate, and the blue one, he guessed, was his mate.
His mate was slim and weak-looking, his face was framed with a peach muzzle and he had cobalt quills that all went down instead of up like his own, and he couldn't tell because of the uniform but he guaranteed that he had peach arms and a peach chest, sorta like Scourge's. But the most striking feature about him had to be his eyes. Shadow had never seen

A wretched scream filled the air of the palace, making several people wake up and rush to its source. Shadow arrived when more than ten of his servants had arrived at the spot, more gathering. They quickly parted as he made his way into the room, which he immediately recognized as the one he had given to Sonic. He was slightly relieved to find that there was no blood anywhere in the room, but the trembling, rocking figure on the bed erased his relief. Tails was desperately trying to get close, but the boy would start to whimper loudly if he got anywhere near him. The fox's face was deeply troubled.
