A/N: All right, now I've really got my work cut out for me. I've decided to answer another challenge on me working with the Sonic Love Collection. This is going to be a first in the Sonic pairings I think. Anyway, this one will contain 5 songs, one Lemon, and a lot of cute Christmas romance. So let's get started with ole Knuckles and a surprise partner ya'll probably never saw coming!


The humble guardian cast his gaze through the twilight canvas of stars, his arms crossed with the shadow of his figure silhouetted behind him. His dreadlocks bounced lightly with the smooth ocean waves as he stared into the sky from his temple. He had been standing there for almost 3 hours, transfixed and puzzled by the thoughts running like an ocean current through his head. His mind was set on one memory. In that memory was a woman. A woman he believed had beauty unlike anyone he had ever met. His thoughts were not of lust, but of love, how much he loved her, how much he wanted to hold, to kiss, and to share a night of unforgettable passion. However, he knew it would never come. She was a cybernetic being, her body could be morphed into anything anyone wished, but the guardian remembered her as the beautiful brown lynx that he had met so many years ago: Nicole.

He turned his head back and walked away slowly down the stone steps. He exited his temple and made his way to the small shack he called home. It wasn't much of a home, but it was enough to satisfy him. He sat his shoulder bag down on the table and dug through it carefully, pulling out a small handheld computer that an old friend of his once had. Admiring it, he gently turned it over and rolled it lightly in his spike-gloved hands before opening it. He paused for a moment then typed a few buttons and pointed the tip of the handheld on the floor. Slowly, pixels floated together and formed a beautiful brown lynx wearing a strapless purple and brown dress. Her hair was black, fluffed back into a beautiful waterfall style. The red echidna gazed lovingly at the lynx as her form finished digitizing.

"Hello Nicole." Said the echidna.

Nicole turned her head and smiled lightly at the echidna. "Hello Knuckles."

There was a small silence between the two as they just looked at one another.

"It's been umm," started Nicole. "A while since…you turned me on."

Knuckles blushed lightly. "It has. Been a while since I have too."

"Turned on?" asked the lynx. "But you're always on. I've never seen you off."

The echidna's smile brought a blush to the lynx's face. He stood up and walked to her.

"Knuckles umm…I want to talk to you if possible."

"About?" questioned the guardian.

"Well, I see that you barely leave your shack except at night. You barely have anyone over anymore, and you've been so distant from everything. I haven't seen behavior like this before."

Knuckles sighed.

"And I've seen you've gotten rid of all those photos of Rouge. Your ring is gone, I see scars on your wrists, and you rarely even go to sleep anymore. What is wrong?"

"You wouldn't understand. Rouge didn't. Somehow, neither do I."

The lynx tilted her head and sat down next to the echidna that was now sitting on the small leather couch. "I may be full of pixels and machinery…but I can tell when something's wrong. Please, tell me what's wrong."

Knuckles looked over at her and sighed. "What do you know about love?"

Nicole blushed and looked down for a moment. "I've seen it…many times with you and Rouge. They way you two were so close to one another."

"That's not the point. Have you ever felt it?"

"No. I'm a computer Knuckles. I'm not programmed to feel emotions."

"You were just now."

Nicole looked into the echidna's eyes. "Which one?"

"Concern…Worry…there's a look in your eyes that just makes me feel better."

Nicole blushed and turned her head away. "Well…I feel something inside me…like breaking out of my program like I did a few years ago…I swear it makes me feel very hot inside…and…I just don't know what it means."

Knuckles smiled and looked into Nicole's eyes, leaning his head in slowly. Nicole blushed more and froze as the echidna pressed his tender muzzle against her mouth. Instead of going through her, it felt like she was solid. Nicole's body twitched as she broke off the kiss, standing up and walking away with a worried expression.

"Nicole?" said the echidna, walking up to her and putting two hands on her waist. "I'm sorry."

There I go, there I go, there I go
There I go...
Pretty baby, you are the soul who snaps my control

Nicole said nothing except place her hand onto the echidna's, interlocking her fingers and staring lovingly into his eyes smiling. "Is this...what love feels like?"

Such a funny thing but every time you're near me
I never can behave
You give me a smile and then I'm wrapped up in your magic
There's music all around me, crazy music
Music that keeps calling me so very close to you
Turns me your slave

Knuckles smiled and looked at her, feeling her arms gingerly rest on his shoulders. He smiled as he nuzzled lightly against her cheek before looking into her midnight black eyes. "Yes."

Come and do with me any little thing you want to
Anything baby, just let me get next to you
Am I insane or do I really see heaven in your eyes?
Bright as stars that shine up above you in the clear blue skies
How I worry about you

Nicole blushed and rested her head onto Knuckle's chest, stroking it lightly as she looked up with innocent eyes. "Rouge used to do this...didn't she?"

Just can't live my life without you
Baby come here, don't have no fear
Oh, is there a wonder why
I'm really feeling in the mood for love...

Knuckles nodded and pressed his muzzle against hers again. "But you're diffrent then her. You are a dream I have waited to capture for so long...a chance at the new beginning I long for."

So tell me why stop to think
About this weather, my dear?
This little dream might fade away
There I go talking out of my head again, oh baby

Nicole blushed and felt Knuckles slip his strong arms around her back, pulling her into a hug. Knuckles removed his spike gloves and tossed them to the floor, running his hand down and up her back in comfort. Nicole closed her eyes and smiled, nuzzling against his chest. Nicole smiled and pulled on Knuckles, falling onto the couch with Knuckles on top. Knuckles chuckled and ran his hands down her graceful waist while he passionately kissed the cyber lynx. Nicole moaned quietly in his mouth before rolling her body and ending up on top of the handsome echidna.

Won't you come and put our two hearts togethor?
That would make me strong and brave
Oh, when we are one, I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid!

"Rouge was right." Said Nicole. "Your eyes are more magical then the stars."

Knuckles smiled and put his hands behind his neck as Nicole's paw traced slowly across Knuckle's crescent chest symbol. He closed his eyes and sighed happily from the pleasure as Nicole smield down at him. She put one of her hands up to one of her dress straps and loosened, revealing her bare shoulders. Knuckles could tell that she wanted her first time.

If there's a cloud up above us
Go on and let it rain

He helped her slid her dress off revealing her graceful beautiful figure. Knuckles chuckled, feeling like he had fallen in love with her all over again before sitting up. There she was, in all of her bare glory. He stroked her waist while Nicole pressed her mouth against his and unzipped his jeans. Knuckles blushed and looked at Nicole. "You're...learning quick!"

I'm sure our love will endure a hurricane
Oh my baby...Won't you please let me love you
And give a relief from this awful misery?

"I'm a fast learner." she said with a wink as she slid off his jeans and tenderly pulled down his boxers, stroking his already aroused shaft. Knuckles murred, remmembering how Rouge used to do it. To his surprise, Nicole was doing it exactly how Rouge used to it. She was stroking and pumping his shaft at the same pace, licking at the same pace...kissing at the same pace. In a way, it was very pleasent for the guardian and he moaned lightly in the moment. Nicole kissed the tip and licked it teasingly before slowly putting it into her warm mouth.

Oh pretty baby you make me feel so good now
Let me take you by the hand
Come let us visit out there
In that new promised land


Nicole giggled and bobbed her head back and forth at a smooth pace. She knew she was doing something right, even though it was her first time. She then climbed back onto Knuckles and sat on his cock, moaning loudly and looking down at the red echidna.

"Pl...Please...make...love to me...Knuckles..." she said, moaning and murring from the pleasure.

Maybe there we can find
A good place to use a loving state of mind
I'm so crazy mama...never knowing what love's about
Would you come on now you can blow now if you want to...

Knuckles obliged and looekd into her eyes. Tonight was finally the night...and after 4 hours of love making, Knuckles could not have been happier.

We're through...

he laid next to Nicole, looking down at her as she kissed him again.

"I love you...Nicole."

"I know." said Nicole. "I love you too, Knuckles."
