I am Sonic
By Unit 03
AN: This story is set after the end of Sonic X, after everyone returns back to their home world. If you haven't seen the final episode of Sonic X, don't worry. It won't be a problem.
Chapter 1: Rescue
Red lights flashed as the alarms went berserk. Amy could do nothing from within her cell. The alarms were so loud she couldn't even listen in on what was going on. All she could do was sit and regret being taken captive by Eggman again. Surrounded by concrete and iron, Amy had nowhere to go. All she could hope for was that Sonic would rescue her. She closed her eyes and waited, trying to tune out the loud alarms. Minutes passed by and the alert didn't subside.
The door burst open. Before the dust could settle, Amy found herself swept up and being carried off at high speed. She didn't even have to look to know it was Sonic who had come to her rescue. She held on tight to her hero and knew everything was going to be okay. While he ran, Amy noticed Sonic was soaking wet. She didn't know what happened, but it didn't matter anymore. Sonic's speed dried him off rather quickly. He raced down a hallway, speeding ahead of the blast doors that were attempting to lock him in. They were all coming down together, leaving him less and less time to escape. The first four doors came nowhere near shutting them in, but the last one forced Sonic to slide under before it closed. He ran outside, holding onto Amy securely. The guard robots outside did little to prevent their escape. Before long, Sonic and Amy were at a safe distance miles from the base.
He set her down gently. Amy eyes lit up with joy as she held her hands together in delight.
"Thank you, Sonic. I knew you'd rescue me," she said with spunk.
"Don't mention it," Sonic said with his signature smile. "I'm just glad you're okay." Sonic took Amy by the hand. She was a little shocked at him for this, but it was a pleasant and welcome surprise. "Come on, I'll walk you home." Amy turned her face away, trying to hide her blushing.
Sonic and Amy walked along the forest trails back to her house. Amy tried hard not to fall into cloud nine from the situation. Sonic didn't seem to mind holding Amy's hand, not that he should after what had happened some weeks ago.
"Hey, Sonic?" Amy said softly.
"Yeah, Amy?" he replied confidently.
"I'm glad you came back." Sonic didn't reply; he just pulled Amy a little closer. She got the message. "Hey, we don't have to go back to my house just yet."
"You had something in mind?"
"Well, it's a lovely night, and there's a beautiful moon out. Maybe we can go to the lake." Sonic smiled a warm smile.
"Okay, want me to get us there a bit faster?" Sonic grinned from the offer. Amy stepped in front of Sonic, wrapping her arms around his neck. Sonic, in turn, lifted her up by the legs. "Hang on tight." Amy held herself as close as she could to Sonic as he raced at his own speed.
They reached the lake only a few minutes later. Amy was let down, though she still wanted to hold on. Sonic and Amy found a nice place to sit down along the shore. The moon cast a beautiful reflection in the water. Amy leaned her head on Sonic's shoulder as they took this moment to watch the stars and the crescent moon. The minutes floated by as if time didn't exist.
Before he knew it, Amy had fallen into a deep sleep. Sonic took Amy in his arms again and gently carried her back to her house. Either Amy was a heavy sleeper, or she just didn't want to leave Sonic's arms. Amy didn't live far from the lake, so he didn't take long in getting to her house, even at reduced speed. Once there, he carefully opened the door without waking her. He pushed the door closed with his foot and carried her to her bed. Sonic set Amy down on her bed to rest the remainder of the night. He quietly walked back outside, closing the door extra careful this time.
Sonic found a nice spot around Amy's garden and sat down, looking at the sky. He went through his memories, remembering all the great times he had spent with not only Amy but all his friends.
