He Is My Master, Chapter 43, Cont.: Worth A Chance
"Have…you ever done this before?" Sonic asked, forcing his tone not to betray his inner trepidation that was rapidly changing front row seats with his desire and euphoria. He was Sonic the Hedgehog, not some blushing virgin bride on her wedding night, dammit…
"Not with a male, no," Shadow replied, his voice sounding low and close to Sonic's ear in the darkness. Sonic swallowed. A female at least would have been biologically made for what Shadow was about to do to him…the black hedgehog was kneeling between Sonic's legs now, the blue hero still halfway leaning against the wall, halfway lying on the floor. His head was tucked into the crook in between Shadow's neck and shoulder, blue ears lightly flicking as Shadow's arms were encircling him, holding him, while his own hands were still suspended slightly above his head, bound in clinking chains. Sonic was already breathing heavily, Shadow's white chest fur tickling his collar bones, inhaling the musky scent of the other. With his arms spread out like this he felt uncomfortably exposed, unable to touch Shadow on his own...not that it mattered, when rough, dry tan lips came down to peck at his muzzle again, Shadow still learning to kiss, but learning fast.
Next, though, Sonic could already feel a hand tentatively running down across his belly, fingertips leaving tickling electricity in their wake. Oh gods, where were they going already...? Sonic suppressed a tiny mewl as his hips jerked involuntarily at the touch, but that only sent the questing fingers now brushing across the area in between his legs. The hero of Mobius drew a gasp at the sudden contact. He felt as if suddenly beginning to burn from below and Shadow's entire body pressing down upon him was nothing but adding fuel to fire wherever he touched him…and then Sonic couldn't help but blush fiercely, as suddenly, a single finger had gone beyond that now prominent bump under his blue fur and was now pushing into an even more private area.
The collared hero gave the tiniest insecure whimper.
But of course, just as it was no secret that Sonic loved few things more than driving Shadow up the wall, it had also already been established that apparently, the Ultimate Lifeform enjoyed putting his supposed slave through a bit of discomfort just a tad…be it keeping him collared, restraining him otherwise, or even mock-punishing him by forced tickling or yanking his ear…Sonic swallowed as he realized that he had just put himself into a prime position to be subject to Shadow's just slightly vengeful whims.
Now he could barely restrain himself as he tried hard to silence any embarrassing noises attempting to rise through his throat as he could feel that finger probing, brushing against that quivering ring of muscles with a bit more force, demanding entry…
"You've got to relax, Sonic. Otherwise this will hurt," Shadow murmured into his ear, the invading digit below not ceasing in its motions, making Sonic wish to squirm and escape but he kept himself still, enduring the torture with gritted teeth.
"Yeah…right…not like that would be difficult at all…" the blue hedgehog replied sarcastically, raising his hips just a little to make the angle less awkward – and was rewarded with the digit for the first time actually slipping inside.
Much later, the hero of Mobius still insisted he hadn't squeaked.
"Ghh…" Sonic felt tempted to buck to relieve himself of the invader, feeling stuffed and awkward, but it was made difficult by the fact that he was now actually starting to get aroused as well by the massaging motions around his entrance, the intimate touch letting pangs of pleasure race up and straight to his groin. Sonic shuddered.
"Liking this, then, I take it?" Shadow smirked at the flustered hedgehog below, the embarrassment coupled with the obvious arousal in his supposed slave's eyes turning him on more than he had expected. He wriggled a bit further inside, wanting to see just how far he could push that writhing body...
"Gah!" Sonic immediately tensed up and Shadow actually had to dodge a blue knee jerking up in reflex.
"Hey, watch it! I'm not Drago, am I?" the Ultimate Lifeform remarked, slightly annoyed. Green eyes opened again, returning the glare.
"No, because if you were, I would have aimed that kick at your head. Don't startle me like that, okay?" he asked, feeling more than embarrassed having to have this conversation while he was still hyper-aware of Shadow's digit embedded within him, moving in and out of him without stopping. It felt unnaturally hot inside Sonic and it was an ongoing struggle for him to at least keep himself semi-relaxed to accomodate the intruder, at once dreading and always expecting Shadow to go in deeper, creating a friction that was threatening to finally push him past the point of no return. Nevertheless, there was a vibe in the air that none of their mutual annoyance or snapped threats were actually real, but instead just a slightly more intense version of their usual banter as things were starting to heat up and it excited Sonic all the more...
Chaos. Angry sex, huh? Well, if at any point in time I should start demanding that Shadow call me dirty things, I sincerely hope he doesn't say 'your kitchen'...
"Alright then, faker, how about you tell me how you like it," Shadow interrupted Sonic's increasingly surrealist train of thought, having bent forward again, and was now all but purring in the blue hedgehog's face, one ungloved hand lovingly tracing the hero's jaw. Unfortunately for Sonic, though, Shadow's other hand remained where it was and made it increasingly difficult to answer.
"Well, you, ah...could...could..." Sonic's eyes glazed over a bit as he tried to stay focused, but the black hedgehog had just started to bend his index finger inside him, moving it in a 'come hither'-motion and Sonic could feel himself stretched, new spots suddenly touched that he hadn't expected as his legs turned to jelly, hip and thighs weakly twitching in an attempt to bear this invasion of his most private area.
"That...that isn't fair..." he panted, shuddering as his eyes were staring at the ceiling, certain that he could hear a low chuckle from the other and was both peeved, helpless and turned on against his will that he couldn't do a thing about it at the moment.
"To repeat my earlier words, Sonic," Shadow replied smoothly, his hand lowering itself from the blue hero's jaw and briefly rubbing along the tensed-up belly of his unwilling pet while he still worked his other finger mercilessly inside him, "Life isn't fair. Get used to it."
"Damn...you..." blue legs coiled in protest and shackled fists were bunched up, yanking uselessly at their chains, but for the moment, that was about all the collared hero could do to protest. Shadow was sure he would recover as soon as he had gotten used to the sensations, but by then he had hopefully moved on to something else that could unbalance the flustered hero even more.
"Shh...try to give in, Sonic..." he whispered, certain that that would rile up the squirming blue form further. The black hedgehog had to admit, this was actually going pretty well so far, considering he had little to no idea how to go about this. But still, the sight of Sonic already sweating, half-lying on the floor, only held up by the cuffs around his wrists, eyes closed and panting, subject to every one of Shadow's whims already excited him more than he had thought possible. The Ultimate Lifeform could feel his ears burning, the blood pumping in their tips, and slowly, a familiar sensation began to rise somewhere else...
But before we can even try that without me hurting him, we still have a while to go, the black hedgehog reminded himself. Sonic was also beginning to recover from his current assault, the pink in his cheeks remaining, but emerald eyes already able to focus on Shadow again. The twitching of the blue hero's hips and slight moans were still an indicator that the sensations of the intruder now moving in and out of him in a pumping motion were far from lost on the younger hedgehog...
"Getting comfortable?" Shadow asked with an intentional smirk that he knew usually ticked the other off, getting a half-serious glower for his efforts, even as the collared hero obviously had to try hard to control his voice when he tried to reply...
"You know, if I had my damn hands free-"
"Tough," Shadow cut him off without pity. "Hate to have to break it to you, but you are supposed to be helpless, here. And that means I can use my hands to go everywhere else..." he trailed off, his free hand intentionally sliding lower on Sonic's belly until it gave a rough rub in an area that made the other gasp again, but in a definitely more excited way. And who knew, the black hedgehog was already sure he could feel a growing bump similar to his own there...
"Don't...stop..." Sonic managed, giving a small buck with his hip against Shadow's hand but obviously reluctant to move too much as long as he was still mounted on that other digit. "More..." The insides of Sonic's thighs were pressing against Shadow's sides, the powerful limbs warm and wrapping around him as the blue hedgehog was worked deeper into.
"Everything comes at a price, Sonic," Shadow informed him casually. "Think you've got room for two in there?"
"Wha – wait!" Sonic's eyes had grown wide at this new information, but by then it was already too late, and he could feel a second finger pushed inside himself, and this time sensitive muscles felt torn into, being forced to expand much too quickly. The blue hedgehog's features immediately contorted, wincing.
"Ah! Shadow, stop!"
"Sonic?" The black hedgehog had indeed ceased any motion as soon as Sonic had called out, even dropping his teasing as he recognized for the first time some signals of pain in the other's voice.
"Are you alright?"
"Been...better..." the blue hero managed, still very aware of the painful stretching going on below. The first initial sting was over, but already he could tell this wasn't going to go well if Shadow tried to push deeper, or add a third finger, or...well...
"Pull out," Sonic said, "I just remembered something."
"What?" Shadow asked, already feeling rather disappointed if Sonic didn't want to continue this, but then, fortunately, the blue hedgehog just grinned at him.
"Silver gave me something that should make this easier. It's in my head quills somewhere, see if you can find it. With your other hand."
The black hedgehog nodded and did as he was told, even if seemingly consternated. Sonic sucked air through his teeth as he could feel the intruding digits leaving his body, suddenly feeling oddly empty and yearning to be filled again, even if the initial sensation had been painful...
Is that how Manic feels? He briefly wondered, but then could only inwardly shake his head. Shadow was once again being more than gentle (if teasing worse than Sonic) to him, and he could hardly imagine doing anything other than pleading and bucking in pain if this was Scourge taking him for the first time.
Now his own supposed Master was reaching around him, and Sonic could feel his quills being parted as an ungloved hand dug through the tangle of blue spines, fortunately used to the task by now, so no blood was spilled. Shadow frowned as he had to grope blindly, Sonic forced with his back against the wall, but it didn't take long for questing artificially engineered fingers to finally close around a small, solid object.
"Got it," Shadow announced, pulling it to the fore. "Now what...oh."
"Yeah, my reaction too," Sonic said, giving a sort of lop-sided grin. "Still, after having you inside there without that stuff, I think we should give it a go..."
"Your call," Shadow admitted, eyeing the gel-like substance inside the jar a bit suspiciously. "The only thing that worries me is what kind of dimension this has to be for them to invent something like this four centuries early."
"The sensible kind, obviously," Sonic replied curtly. "And now would you please get a move on? I mean, you know that, like, a dozen people have tried to jump me in under a week, so you'd think that the one guy that actually gets permission would be a bit more thrilled about the prospect," he said, poking his tongue out as Shadow's eyes snapped up, the black hedgehog once more well aware that he was being taunted.
You have to hand it to the faker, no matter what you do to him, he never stays under for long...
"Getting cocky again, are we?" the Ultimate Lifeform growled, briefly straddling the tied up hedgehog akin a feral lion, digging his fingers into the peach-furred chest instead as he beared down upon him. Emerald eyes held his gaze fast, their gleam telling Shadow that the collared hero knew his ego was possibly writing cheques his self-control wasn't able to cash at the moment, but also that the Sonic was by now aroused enough to be past caring.
"Just telling you that I generally prefer action to talking, if you catch my drift," the blue hedgehog provoked him with a taunting grin, even if Sonic himself was rather nervous again (but was damned if he let it show) as he could now see the other unscrewing the jar and dipping his fingers in the substance, the medieval jelly (chaos knew how they had produced that stuff) coating the black fingers liberally. Next, Shadow's other hand was already spreading his knees apart that Sonic had drawn up during their brief pause and the collared hero had to suppress a swallow as he knew that that once again let his more vulnerable parts be fully accessible to his supposed Master and couldn't help but wonder whether Shadow let him intentionally feel this way. But it let Sonic's heart beat faster and got the adrenaline flowing he loved so much...Shadow pressed him down again, his greater mass weighing the slender blue hedgehog down with just the force of his hand against Sonic's chest.
The Ultimate Lifeform leaned down close to Sonic's ear, "I can 'catch' you any time you want, Faker," Shadow's low voice purred, making goosebumps dance down Sonic's body underneath his fur,"or any way you want."
Sonic couldn't quite bite back the choked moan those words tore from his throat, some far removed part of his mind wondering where the hell the other had learned to talk dirty this way, even as he saw Shadow's eyes sparkle with mischief and something far more sultry.
And then he two fingers slid once more inside him without warning and this time, they were cold.
Tails frowned. "Did you also just hear Sonic yell 'Sweet mother of Chaos!'?" he asked, glancing nervously upwards at the guest room of his house where they had relocated the two hedgehogs to after their return from the police station.
Knuckles raised an eye ridge. "Me? No. But if he did - even if that actually would have sounded a lot more like him than all that grovelling he's been doing during the last week – I do not want to know what they're doing now."
Chapter 44: With Me
"Oooh...I'm gonna kill you..." Sonic was digging his hands into the cold stone they were chained to now, hips wriggling as he could feel that tight ring of muscles expanded, no friction keeping the invading digits at bay any more and they were going deeper...thrusting up suddenly and letting the blue herojump. The blue head was turned to the side now and his eyes closed as the collared hedgehog was trying to take deep breaths, calming himself even if all of him wanted to squirm at the alien sensation. There was liquid all inside him...
"Time for that later. You will have to get in line behind Black Doom," Shadow replied, crimson eyes relishing each shudder the blue speedster was trying to suppress that went through the lithe blue form beneath his eyes. Privately, he was amazed and grateful at what Sonic was currently willing to take just for the the two of them having fun later.
"The hell I will let him get you...you're mine," the blue hedgehog replied, one eye quirking open and mock-glaring at Shadow. The darker one smirked.
"Happy to hear that. And now, you better brace yourself..."
Sonic exhaled and bared his teeth as he could suddenly feel himself being expanded sharply when Shadow spread his fingers apart as if a pair of scissors, heat shooting into his cheeks as he wondered how wide open he was to Shadow now.
For one moment the thought flashed through his head why he had to be the one taken, and not the other. But then again, even without the chains rendering everything else at the moment impossible, it also had seemed nearly natural, both not even considering any alternative for their first try – and, when Sonic thought about it, wasn't this the exact dynamic they had unconsciously come to enjoy anyway, while they had been here?
The Ultimate Lifeform's strong fingers were stretching him with ease, still being careful not to tear, the slightly painful sting mixed with the unfamiliar waves of pleasure from the nerve endings a completely overwhelming sensation for the so far untouched hedgehog. And Shadow's fur on his ungloved hands itched and tickled...
Contrary to Sonic's love for speed, Shadow loved power, and, being able to dominate the usually so proud blue hero was obviously something he liked. Sonic could also guess that a part of the other enjoyed the collar forced around his neck, marking him to outsiders as a possession of the dark hedgehog who so far had owned so little...and it complemented the blue speedster perfectly, because he liked to tease, to rebel, to poke fun at anyone who thought they could control him, and he was thrilled to have found someone who could actually push back. Shadow had also needed someone to trust him, to see him as something more than a fearsome weapon of mass destruction, and Sonic, never having given up on him and now leaving himself open to anything from him like this was just what he had been waiting for so long. The blue speedster himself was simply enjoying it to be able to relax for while, not carrying the world on his shoulders, but, just for once, be able to give in and give himself up to someone, without the consequences being serious - except apparently for his backside, of course.
Sonic tried to focus on something, anything as he could feel his entrance rubbed and pushed against despite his twitching hips that he tried to keep still, despite his choked back mewls of protest he didn't want Shadow to hear. Unfortunately, in a vicious cycle, the sensations became more intense whenever he instinctively tried to tense up against the assault, and trying to keep himself relaxed to accommodate his supposed Master inside him was becoming a near-impossible task. And there was heat down there now, so much heat inside him as he was widened roughly and made slick with the gel from the jar, until the collared hero thought he could bear it no more.
"Shadow..." he finally breathed, his body already so wrecked from sensations he wasn't sure what he would do once his supposed Master finally decided to take him fully.
"Yeah? Everything okay with you?" the black hedgehog asked quietly, even if not ceasing in his task. Black fingers continued to roam the other's body, every once in a while brushing more and more forcefully in between those voluntarily spread blue legs, feeling the other getting more excited and speeding his pulse up in turn...Shadow could feel his temperature (and other things) slowly rising. He relished the rare sight, warm feel and musky smell of the exhausted hedgehog beneath him, blushing and breathing heavily, the Ultimate Lifeform wanting nothing more than to speed this up and finally climb atop him – except that he had sworn himself not to hurt Sonic with this.
"Yeah...keep...ooh, going," the blue hedgehog groaned, writhing once more underneath his supposed Master, and Shadow could feel the muscles around his spreading fingers quiver and relax again, those silken inside walls slowly growing more and more accustomed to being touched and claimed. Sonic's body was reacting to the lubricant even if the collared hedgehog himself hadn't seemed too fond of it at first.
"Alright," Shadow murmured, "Then here's the final step before we go all out," he said, at the same time slowly, but nonetheless demanding, pushing a third digit into the tight opening. The thought of actually invading that narrow, virgin entrance by himself was by now almost enough to send him over the edge all on its own...he needed to get a tighter grip on himself.
"Ggh," Sonic offered, already prepared for being stretched wider, but still having to stifle his own exclamation at the awkward feeling mixed with the unfamiliar pleasure he was receiving from the other's touch. Also, he could feel himself rising now, and was sure his cheeks had to have lit up with another wave of embarrassment as he was now doubly exposed to Shadow, his legs still spread by the black hedgehog and having nowhere to hide. Then again, technically, this wasn't anything Sonic had to be ashamed of...
The blue speedster could feel his own heart skip a beat as he looked up and saw that Shadow was obviously excited by this as well, yet also couldn't suppress a gulp as he invariably couldn't wonder how that was ever going to fit inside him.
"Hmm...think you're ready now?" a husky voice of the other interrupted his thoughts and suddenly, Shadow had stopped moving inside him and was again leaning into his face again. Sonic could see every single muscle of the other, also panting by now, carved out beneath damp fur, the other's blood-red eyes glowing in the darkness of the dungeon, Shadow visibly just as stirred up and perhaps slightly nervous as he was, which only served to let his heart skip another beat.
The hero of Mobius summoned his courage and forced his lips to stretch into a grin.
"What are you, all talk? You should know the fastest thing alive is always gonna be one step ahead, faker."
"Well, if you say so," Shadow answered with an equally self-assured small smirk as he played over his own butterflies, leaning in once more to caress Sonic's chin and nuzzle the side of his face. The blue hero for one moment lost himself entirely in that sensation, feeling the breath of the other on his cheek, just a bit irregular. Sonic briefly figured that this would probably be helpful if Shadow could keep it up when he went in, as he would need every sensation possible to distract himself from what was to follow. It had been hard to put up with just the fingers inside himself. The collared hero swallowed as he could feel the digits being withdrawn from his entrance, knuckles making him shudder as they left him, even if he couldn't see what was going on with Shadow still leaning over him.
Now Sonic could faintly hear the scraping of jet skates on stone as Shadow moved, the warm breath of his partner, his temporary master, as it brushed across his quills, sending shivers up his spine. An ungloved, strong hand then suddenly gripped his hip, and it was only through an effort of will that Sonic avoided tensing up as he knew what was about to happen next. The blue hedgehog was trapped now, as his supposed owner pulled him into a position to be taken, further on his back and just a bit more...helpless. Sonic's heavy breathing caught in his throat as something much larger, smoother and most of all hotter than fingers parted his cheeks, and pushed ever so slowly against his by now flushed and quivering entrance...
"Uh. One moment," he said quickly, just before the other had been able to enter him, gel still leaking from inside, the blue hero unable to hold it in while he was trying to stay relaxed.
"What?" Shadow halted, now mainly supported by one hand planted next to the slender speedster's sides. Sonic actually had to give him credit for that – he himself was already aching for release as he knew the black hedgehog had to be, yet if their roles had been reversed in this scenario, Sonic was pretty sure the Ultimate Lifeform would at this moment have had to fend him off with a stick if he had changed his mind right now. The collared hedgehog swallowed. He simply had to ask this...
"Okay...Chaos, this is hard to say," he managed, his breathing still rasping, tan-furred chest heaving under white tufts. "This – this is kind of big for me, Shadow."
"Rouge said something similar about it, but I'm still flattered."
"Okay, you're about one step away from getting a knee where it hurts," Sonic informed the smugly smirking hedgehog above him in a dead-pan. "That's not what I meant and you – ah! - know it," he said, briefly tensing up as there had been a little push down there he hadn't been prepared for.
"Perhaps," Shadow replied, but his face had returned to a more serious expression. "What is it, Sonic?" he asked, his tone once again non-jocular. The blue hedgehog turned his head to the side, avoiding eye clanged against the stone slightly. Unfortunately for him, Shadow still held him in place and that black hip was still moving ever so little, creating the worst tease imaginable against his entrance and he needed to get his thoughts together if this was to come out the way he intended...
"You're the first one I've ever wanted to do this with," Sonic finally said, his voice still even against the accumulated odds, "And I know this is silly, because after this entire week here with you this really shouldn't be an issue any more, but..." he stopped himself, and then finally looked up into his supposed Master's crimson eyes above him. "If this hurts too much, you're still gonna stop, right?" he asked, green eyes reflecting trust, but also that faintest hint of apprehension.
"Of course. Sonic, we don't have to do this if you don't want to," Shadow said, his own gaze searching the blue hedgehog's expression for any traces of last minute doubts or even fear, toned peach chest underneath him rising and sinking with Sonic's breathing. But the other didn't look scared...
"No, I do want to," Sonic replied, his tone once again firm, "It's just -" the blue hedgehog's lips briefly pressed into a thin line as his supposed slave seemingly tried to force his addled brain to ignore his body painfully aching to be filled again and searched for the right words. "Shadow...this is more than just a one-time-thing, right?"
"What?" The question came entirely out of nowhere, and therefore, the Ultimate Lifeform's first reaction was to be taken aback. Sonic turned his head away again, looking a curious mixture of embarrassed and annoyed.
"Look, I'm not meaning to go all girl on you here, but ..." he trailed off. "It's stupid. It's just, y'know, with me having had to wear that collar all the time, and people trying to bang me, and being sold, and tied up, and generally treated like a pet or something to be owned..." his eyes locked with Shadow again. "Is it so weird if after all that you want a bit of reassurance that you're a bit more than just a, well, sex toy? Or even a fling?" he asked, emerald gaze now fully serious like it seldom was. "I know I don't really talk about that feely stuff all that much, or am really good at it, but – Shadow, I like you. I really like you. And the physical stuff is great 'n all, but I...kinda want more than that. From you," he said, again a faint pink tinge on his cheeks that he had given up fighting against by now. "That this is something bigger for us than just getting off – not that getting off at this point wouldn't be really nice, by the way," he added, licking over his lips and just slightly bucking his hips for emphasis, brushing against the black hedgehog's stomach as his entire hormone-swamped body was currently insisting that it did NOT care for character development right at this moment.
"So...what am I to you, Shadow?" the collared hedgehog finally asked, keeping himself still again, tensed muscles slightly trembling as he waited for an answer of his supposed Master half atop him. When the Ultimate Lifeform did not reply for a moment, a blue forehead creased up in a frown. "Hey, it's my literal ass on the line here, okay? And this phrase has never had more truth to it," the blue speedster prodded and finally earned himself a rare snort from the other, the black hedgehog hanging his head briefly and lightly shaking it.
One blue eye ridge was cocked in wary anticipation when the next thing that happened was Shadow looking up again, shifting to his knees, and then both hands were reaching for Sonic's face and peach lips were claimed in a kiss that was somehow more prolonged and gentle than all the previous ones. The black hedgehog even seemed to remember Sonic's less than enthusiastic reaction to saliva exchange, and when tan lips parted, Sonic could feel the tip of the other's tongue just slide over his own bottom lip but not demanding entrance, the light touch making him shiver and stars explode in his vision even when his supposed owner withdrew again and green eyes blinked open to stare into entirely serious crimson ones.
"I haven't said this to anyone in a long time..." Shadow began, kneeling atop Sonic, his voice sounding curiously hesitant and slightly unsure as the black hedgehog looked a bit as if he was trying to remember something that had been over a lifetime ago. "I only ever said it to Maria, and she was basically my sister, in all but blood. Up until last week I wasn't even sure whether Professor Gerald had even created me as capable of any...romance," he admitted, tone low. "But what I felt for you during this week..." a small, one of those genuine Shadow because-not-quite-there-smiles slipped onto his face, eyes gleaming with that familiar dark shine Sonic loved so much, "I have no basis to compare it to, but other than that..." he paused, looking a bit like he had trouble forming those next words, finally leaning in ever so close, closing that gap between them, as if his speech was too fragile, and he had to treat each word ever so careful, lest they might break if spoken aloud.
"Sonic..." he whispered, his voice barely a breath in those blue ears. "...I love you."
"Wow," the collared hedgehog exhaled quietly, feeling his throat run dry and entire body warm up even more, if a slightly different kind of warmth than the still pulsating heat of arousal. "Thank you, Shadow. That means a lot to me."His voice was slow, but sincere as their gazes connected. "And even if you had just said that to get into my fur, I'm thinking that such awesome acting would deserve a reward anyway," he said, familiar grin thankfully disguising how much he really had been touched by what Shadow had admitted. Now he didn't even care any more (that much, anyway) whether what came next would hurt, if he could be certain that the other actually wanted him, and wanted all of him. Sonic's legs lifted the blue hero slightly, sending him grinding against his black-furred partner and judging by how the Ultimate Lifeform sucked in the air sharply at that, Sonic was succeeding in getting them back on track. Shadow leaned in some more, and Sonic could feel the other slipping neatly against him again, prodding that already slightly abused opening in preparation for what would follow shortly...
"I promise I meant every word of that, Sonic," Shadow replied as he nuzzled into blue fur, hardly able to believe that this statement was actually true. Sonic had become the most important person in the world to him and that in only one short week. He wasn't even sure how he could simultaneously completely rely on, want to protect, and now recently ache to bang the hell out of one and the same hedgehog. Especially as Sonic still managed to confuse or throw him for a loop six times a day at the least, and yet there was a part of Shadow that already did not want to let go of his supposed pet ever again.
And now he would be able to claim him in one of the most wonderful ways possible...
"Ready?" Shadow asked again, tan lips brushing against a blue triangular ear, the feel of Sonic's tight entrance against his tip a temptation almost impossible to resist.
"Yeah," Sonic breathed. Shadow moved, already breaching-
"That is, wait."
"Relax, Shads, only teasing," Sonic grinned at the slightly exasperated Ultimate Lifeform, perhaps enjoying the power he could still wield before he knew he would be at a serious disadvantage in their continuing battle for dominance. The blue speedster cocked his head.
"We have Silver's gel, but nothing else. I can't...catch anything from you, can I?" he asked, one eye narrowed curiously as he stared at Shadow. The black hedgehog gave a snort and a weary twitching of the lips.
"Faker, I am the Ultimate Lifeform, genetically engineered by the most brilliant mind of his time, and was destined to be the final cure for his deathly ill granddaughter. Whatever disease you care to name, I would be a hundred times more likely to heal it than to give it to you,"
"Wow. Remind me to play 'Doctor games' with you whenever I'm sick, then," Sonic replied with a slightly lop-sided grin. When Shadow's only reaction was another shake of the head, he finally nodded, bunched his shackled hands into fists and laid his head back as if bracing himself.
"Okay," he said, breathing out again to relax, arching his back a little to make the angle as easy as possible for his supposed Master. "Let's do it. I'm ready."
Shadow nodded again, and then moved forward. The blue hedgehog's entrance was still well-coated in the gel, and could offer little to no resistance as he slid in, even as the black hedgehog knew his tip had to be considerably larger than his three fingers. But he himself couldn't help but shudder at the sensation of that flexing ring of muscles was forced to stretch over one of his most sensitive assets, reluctantly taking him in...
Sonic squeezed his eyes shut as he was breached for the first time by Shadow himself, his first reaction that the other was simply too large, when he was slowly, awkwardly widened. Slight tears of pain emerged that he hadn't quite managed to suppress at the entry. Sonic by no means teared up easily, had been able to suffer and ignore worse wounds in battles quite well, but this was such a vulnerable area he was offering to the other, so sensitive to touch that every movement made him gasp, that the sensation of truly being invaded for the first time had simply been to overwhelming. Ears and quills flattened themselves, an automatic, instinctive gesture of submissiveness of his body that he could so nothing about. It was a rare sight of the blue hero, too, Sonic's spikes most of the time always half-raised since he had been living with the constant threat of attack for too long. The only time Shadow previously had seen him lower them unconsciously had been at night in bed, the fact that both of them would naturally relax their quills when asleep the only reason why they could share a bed at all.
"Sonic…." Shadow breathed, careful not to move himself any further even as he was almost overwhelmed with the heat engulfing his head. He bent forward slowly until he was nearly touching Sonic's face with his own. He swallowed. "I'm sorry..." he murmured…and then, on impulse, let his tongue dart out briefly to lick the tear away. Sonic opened his eyes surprised, but then leaned into the gentle touch, the pain somehow bearable if it was accompanied by something else to focus on, like he had previously thought. He almost blushed at the caress, remembering Shadow's words from before…
"Stay there…"Sonic turned his head, claiming Shadow in a kiss that instantly became rougher as the black hedgehog moved again inside him, small hedgehog teeth trapping Shadow's lower lip in a careful love bite, but at least no more tears coming forth as the first wave of pain at the sudden stretch was past and Sonic could begin to adjust himself to what currently resided inside of him. His tongue was actually invading Shadow's mouth now, a surprise to the black hedgehog but not an unwanted one, the blue-furred speedster perhaps trying to retaliate for what was being done to him somewhere else. Sonic's teeth were slightly nibbling at his sensitive bottom lip, a shower of electricity crawling across the black hedgehog's back as Sonic's tongue tickled the inside of his mouth, suckling at the warm, moist flesh. Shadow didn't mind as he slowly pushed himself further inside...
For Sonic, this was new terrain, too, for the first time totally defenceless and at the mercy of someone else – someone else that wasn't intentionally out to hurt him, that is, and he had offered himself up willingly…
"Hhh!" Sonic's back arched in pain at the next thrust, again surprising the Ultimate Lifeform, but in a cruel twist, that only meant the blue hedgehog managed to impale himself even further. The collared hedgehog whimpered quietly as he sank against the dungeon wall again, head turned to the side as he tried to steady his laboured breathing, now quite literally trapped between a rock and a hard place.
"Sonic…" Shadow began, concerned, but was interrupted.
"Don't start. I'm…still fine…" Sonic pressed through gritted teeth, hands balling into fists in their shackles. Shadow watched as the blue hedgehog again strained to spread himself for the penetration, to relax so the pain he was forcing on him wouldn't be so bad...
Shadow felt big…Sonic was blushing fiercely at the sensation pushed into him, could feel himself brushing up against Shadow's abdomen now, would have liked to buck to increase the friction but couldn't move his hips without being stretched even further, quite literally fixated in place. Shadow's length inside him felt hard, and pulsating and rigid as his supposed Master was claiming him, the blue hedgehog reduced to trying to take this without squirming too much. Muscles seized up around the intrusion automatically but couldn't do anything but heighten an unfortunate Sonic's sensations around the invader even more, impossible heat letting the blue hips try to remove themselves instinctively, but Shadow was already swollen inside him and Sonic couldn't move an inch. The scent of midnight and crimson fur so close was still intoxicating, though, the blue speedster's gloved fingers yearning to roam through it but were restrained. If only he could distract himself a bit better until he had adjusted…if only he could get Shadow to pay some more attention to another area that had been poking the black stomach for a while by now.
"Shads? How about...a little help here...?" Sonic panted, indicating with his eyes what he couldn't reach with his hands.
"What, there?" Shadow asked, supporting himself with one hand and reaching out with the other to briefly wrap his fingers around Sonic, letting his supposed pet nearly cry out. "I'm sorry, Sonic, but if I do that, the fun would be over too quickly," he informed the other pleasantly, going back to teasing as soon as the other had assured him that he was still okay. Green eyes managed to level a somewhat blushing glare at him, even if half-clouded by desire.
"What an apt description," Shadow smirked, moving his hand away again, but at least rubbing his abdomen a bit against his lover so as not to be totally heartless. Sonic merely turned his head away again.
"Phhht. See what I'll do to you once we're out of here and can repeat this thing without the shackles," he informed his lover, trying hard to let neither hurt nor pleasure break up his voice. Damn that faker...
But then again, there was that tiny part of him that actually liked the pain, too. Sonic was far from being a masochist, couldn't understand people cutting themselves, either, but…
If it meant adventure. If it was the sharp shock of a piece of shrapnel shooting past and cutting your arm as you ran from the explosion, if it was a daredevil snowboard stunt that let you end up with skinned knees, if it was that graze of an opponent's punch that you just didn't quite twist quickly enough to avoid. Sonic didn't like bad pain, pain that meant something was wrong, stemmed from broken bones, internal injuries or trauma to his head, pain that actually lasted. No. The sort the blue-furred hero found twistedly attractive was the kind that only added spice and adrenaline, the kind which had been acquired doing something new and exciting and dangerous – in sort, doing something he really, really shouldn't have done, but chose to do anyway.
Like, for example, letting myself get screwed by my former rival in a medieval dungeon while execution is scheduled at dawn.
He almost had to laugh.
Then Shadow drove into him again and Sonic gave a strangled, hoarse cry as he felt the burning sensation rocketing skywards sharply.
The black hedgehog paused, looking down at his supposed slave, emerald eyes squeezed shut as he was still straining to get used to what was filling his backside now, teeth bared and panting hard once more.
"Sonic…we can stop this. If it hurts you," Shadow insisted, trying to keep his voice steady against the pleasure engulfing him. Despite his teasing when the other had taunted him, he wasn't going to be able to truly enjoy this if Sonic didn't.
"S..stop?" To Shadow's surprise, the voice of the other actually sounded a lot less miserable than he had expected. "No…fucking…way."
"Oh?" The black hedgehog raised an eye ridge as the collared hero beneath him then actually opened eyes that were still burning with spirit, a defiant grin tugging at the edge of fawn lips even if he was still being spread uncomfortably by his supposed Master.
"I can take whatever you can dish out, thought ya knew that by now." Sonic smirked at him, his cheeks flushed at his position and slender chest heaving, but looking in no way unwilling or afraid. "Just try some more and I'm sure we can make this work….don't think I've tolerated your fingers for nothing, faker," he managed, his tone once again a challenge and more than temptation. Yes, the pain was bad and made harder to ignore by the fact that this was such a novel area for him to receive it in, but Sonic at the same time knew he'd gladly endure it even if it was two times worse, because he was together with Shadow...
"Hnn," the black hedgehog replied, apparently not quite convinced whether this show of bravado was genuine, but the sweating body beneath him, every single movement of his tight insides and silky walls sending waves of ecstasy through his nervous system despite him not even having entered fully yet was making it hard to think clearly.
"Fine," the Ultimate Lifeform finally acquiesced, "But if it hurts too much you tell me. Understood?"
"Yeah, whatever," Sonic waved him off, shackles rattling slightly. "I'm not made of glass, okay?"
"If you say so…" Shadow breathed in deeply, then at the same time pushing in deeper without warning, letting his supposed slave again tense, gasp and suppress a strangled whimper as he was ravaged, but showing no signs of calling a stop any time soon. If only this could be made any easier…
Shadow's body was already alight with desire, his rasping breath and shaking frame only illustrating his chaotic inner state. Sonic beneath him, taking him, felt far too good to bear and he had to restrain himself heavily not to simply drive into the now defenceless hedgehog as hard as he could, still not wanting to harm his supposed slave. The tightness let the black hedgehog tremble and sweat, control beginning to slip from his as his brain was slowly slipping into a pleasure-induced haze. Pangs of faintly familiar guilt made themselves known to him whenever Sonic winced or tried to stifle a whimper when he was driven into again, but at the same time, the sheer heat engulfing, compressing, massaging Shadow made it impossible to stop. Their sweat was mingling where their bodies touched and Sonic pressed into him from below. The black hedgehog could feel the other's chest rise as the slender runner's form under him tried to offer himself one more time, bringing his hip up to meet his supposed Master's, both to improve the angle and maybe gain some more friction against the other's belly fur…and in response the black hedgehog moved himself once more, this time nearly penetrating his partner all the way.
And Sonic jerked as if he had just been set on fire.
"Sonic?" Shadow asked with a touch of alarm, wondering whether he had finally managed to hurt the other seriously, the narrow, hot cavity suddenly constricting and flexing wildly, almost shutting Shadow up again. "Are you-?"
"Do…do that again, will you?" Sonic asked, eyes all at once wide and filled with excitement. "That…actually felt good..." he looked up at him, his cheeks flushed even more and a slightly surprised grin on his face as their gazes met. Shadow could feel his heart finally skip a bit as Sonic for the first time actually seemed to be enjoying this again and his own eyes lit up in return.
"Right…" he grunted, tentatively pushing forward again, abusing that tight ring of muscles even more, but gaining yet another positive reaction as Sonic now actually yelped after the initial pain was over, straining against his bound wrists and bucking against the other pinning him down. The sensation of first being violated painfully, then exploding with pleasure from within was almost too much to bear for the hero, especially if he had no control over it at all. And the crushing, swivelling hips of the other were about to drive him crazy...
"Damn…Shadow…" he panted, trembling in his trapped position, fighting to stay focused. The black hedgehog leaned forward, breaking the eye contact by forcing Sonic to close his as he kissed the other again. Shadow moved out slightly just to let the other squirm, then rolled his pelvis forward unannounced once more and smothered Sonic's instant gasp with his lips. He himself had trouble not to cry out and alert the guards at this point…
"Hhhh…" the blue hedgehog cringed, eyes squeezed shut again as his insides contorted at the new, impossible wave of pleasure, even stronger than the first. He was completely at the mercy of the other, couldn't move or escape and it was starting to drive him insane when Shadow did this to him…
"Sonic…" Shadow was breathing heavily as well, warm, strong blue thighs pressing against the sides of him, his muscles trembling from the exertion and the novel and intense sensation. Sonic felt like an all-consuming fire, igniting every part of his body, starting below…the Chaos energy inside him was prickling all over, stirred like never before.
Back then, Rouge had told him he apparently had 'excellent endurance' and he also vaguely recalled Professor Gerald mentioning once that he had designed Shadow with the aim of giving him greater control over his body in the face of stimulants, yet so far he had always connected that with being able to ignore pain from injuries in a fight instead of being able to hold back like this.
Sonic at this point gave the tiniest whine at Shadow having stopped for a moment and leaving him spread like this and the lips of the Ultimate Lifeform then actually twitched into the subtlest smirk.
He suddenly wondered again how far he could push this…
Once more leaning over Sonic, the black hedgehog began to enter his supposed slave again, Sonic only bucking occasionally but actually taking him a lot more easily now – and now Shadow went purposefully slowly and gently, not quite as deep as previously, leaving the collared hero beneath him to pant and groan, but unable to do anything else but to be slowly let himself reduced to a writhing mess...
"Stop…friggin teasing me, you bastard…" Sonic rasped at this point, still that determined glint in his eye as he managed to focus his emerald gaze on Shadow. "Either you take me or you don't, but this just isn't fair…" he panted, teeth bared in a slightly strained but still demanding tone, knowing what the other was doing to him precisely, cheeks lit up as he hated and loved it at the same time.
"In that case…your wish is my demand," Shadow replied – and then thrust into the collared hedgehog harder than before, for the first time making the blue hero actually cry out loudly, wordlessly and hoarse, bucking up on the floor as he threw his spiked head back in involuntary reaction. Shadow immediately pressed his lips together, wondering whether he had finally managed to be careless enough to seriously hurt Sonic when he had entrusted himself to him, had let his own pleasure drive him too far. But the other was so tight and the more difficult this made it for him the more shamefully blissful it became for Shadow…
"Sonic…" the black hedgehog whispered, reaching out for the blue face with those brilliant emerald eyes once again tightly shut, the other's expression relaxing only slowly as if he had been suffering…
But before he could make contact, Sonic's stare was already locked with his again, the blue speedster's gaze actually sparkling wickedly.
"Heh…knew you could do it."
Sonic was panting, still wriggling a bit to try and accustom himself to this new, rough treatment, but already he didn't mind that much any more, desire flooding his body in waves now, letting his insides contort in pleasure that Shadow had hit that special spot inside him hard enough to let him see stars on the dungeon ceiling.
Wow…never knew it could feel like this.
Shadow for a moment bent over Sonic again, supporting himself with both his hands braced against the floor on Sonic's sides and gazing down into his captive's face, his own lips slowly stretching into a smirk as he tried to keep his strained voice level.
"I see…is the pet trying to control the Master, again?" he asked, raising an amused eye ridge while at the same time once more rolling his hips into his unsuspecting supposed slave, just slightly harsher and more forceful than actually necessary and had the brief satisfaction of Sonic once again barely stopping himself from crying out as he was ungently claimed. "I think you're hardly in a….position…to try and play games, Sonic," Shadow purred, bringing their noses together and regarding the trembling hedgehog beneath him with his trademark superiority.
Then, to his surprise, he was suddenly abruptly brought closer as strong blue legs wrapped themselves around him and pulled him in, drawing a surprised gasp from the Ultimate Lifeform as he was involuntarily moved forward and driven in deeper, the increased pressure whipping through his system like an electric current.
"Hgaa-!" he called out, crimson eyes widening and when he looked down again, Sonic was smirking up at him just as smugly as the black hedgehog previously had felt.
"Oh yeah? Stop underestimating me, Shads," Sonic's breathing was ragged, the hedgehog's fur damp from sweat and exhaustion, but his eyes were gleaming as fiercely as ever. "Don'tcha think you're running this thing alone just 'cause I got my hands tied."
Shadow gave a small chuckle.
Their gazes locked, both alight with desire as much as with challenge.
"If you want to play it that way…" Shadow's tone was all but predatory, "…I'm going to make you scream for your pleasure, Sonic."
The hedgehog beneath him only gave a shining grin in the darkness.
"You're on, faker…"
Sonic currently felt as if his entire world contained nothing more than hands touching him, lips exploring his body, breath washing over his fur and himself being filled until he couldn't take it any more. Shadow had promised he would be able to draw a scream from him, and right now the blue speedster once again couldn't help but think that he would soon make good on that, whether he liked it or not. Even though the collared hero didn't like to admit it, his bound wrists did put him at a severe disadvantage as Shadow's gloveless fingers were able to roam freely all over him, caressing his neck, his behind, squeezing the insides of his thighs, or even more sensitive body parts...
Sonic gasped as hardness and heat was forced even deeper inside him, but also had to admit by now he liked being grasped roughly by Shadow and being claimed again and again. The hero of Mobius had not only always been a fan of brawling for fun or playing rough, but now was also revelling in allowing his body to be ravaged liked that and just to go with the flow of those powerful muscles pounding into him; it nearly turned him perversely on to be effectively rendered objectively helpless in his receiving position, abandoning any resistance as he floated on this isle of bliss, knowing that he was allowed temporary submission just this once without having to fear what would happen to him afterwards and oh chaos it feels so good.
The blue speedster knew that the next time he would likely have to try and raise himself into the thrusts, let his own muscles contribute something to their horizontal tango, but right now he was simply reduced to weak, quick occasional bucking under Shadow as he was moved from above, powerful blue legs twitching uselessly and restlessly against the stone. Of course, the collared hero also knew that, apart from when black hedgehog drove his body crazy, he was far from being as pliant and obedient as this - and most of the time, play-fighting, brawling or arguing over either plans and strategies, or simply everyday things with the black hedgehog was just as fun with their explosive personas, both in and out of battle.
As if to prove his point, Sonic retaliated with his tongue when he could, occasionally managing to lift his upper body high enough to crush those fawn lips with a rough kiss, his own breath spilling down a black-spined back as he was pounded into, his supposed owner's hips rolling into him again and again like the unstoppable and incessant motion of waves at a ravaged shore. Sonic tried to adjust himself, control the angle at which he was invaded so he could keep up with Shadow's rhythm, but the other wasn't making this so easy for him, varying his force and sometimes even missing that sweet spot inside Sonic on purpose, or at least that was how it seemed to the collared hero; he huffed and panted in frustration, so close to the edge, yet not allowed to release yet, it was maddening. And then Shadow drove into him again, even more forcefully than the blue speedster had expected and he was forced to bite into the other's shoulder to stifle the cry he didn't want to give yet.
Sonic liked being able to make Shadow happy, felt turned on (and rather cocky) by the fact that the black hedgehog was giving it up just for him. The Ultimate Lifeform's eyes in turn were shining with honest happiness that Sonic trusted him so much to give Shadow the opportunity to drive him to ecstasy beneath him, blue features scrunched up in a grimace of pain and pleasure, blue body writhing in a rapture that let the black hedgehog feel proud.
Next, though, Shadow already gave a hoarse yelp as his insubordinate slave's teeth sunk into his fur and skin, not having expected that, but not disappointed with the reaction he was getting either. Sonic soon was forced to let himself sink back onto his back with his head against the stones again his body already not his to control anymore, and that meant Shadow could just continue his game. The Ultimate Lifeform's own erratic pacing was more due to the fact that he himself had trouble controlling any of his movements right now, any thought processes going haywire in the mad ecstasy he had been plunged into. Sonic was incredibly tight and flexible around him, the first one to let him feel like this and this made it all the more precious to Shadow, who loved letting that blue body yield to him under his touch, feeling it quiver and flinch under his fingers, begging for more. The now utterly defenceless hedgehog was like a writhing puppet beneath him, moving at Shadow's will; muscles tensing and relaxing to whatever buttons the black hedgehog decided to try and push next, helpless to his curious exploration.
Sonic could feel himself actually building up ever more, every time Shadow connected with that pulsing nerve bundle inside of him he wanted to cry out, yet refused to give the other that satisfaction...yet. It wasn't until strong black hands finally surprised him by grasping both his twitching thighs and lifting them both upwards and mercilessly straight into Shadow just as the black hedgehog thrust forward one last time, green eyes going wide as the hero of Mobius finally found himself suddenly completely flat on his back, legs in the air while Shadow had just invaded him as deeply as possible, that Sonic finally gave up and screamed.
This time, Knuckles had been the one who thought he had just heard Sonic scream something, but mainly because of what that scream had sounded like, he chose to not share this information with Tails working beside him– the echidna privately thought the kid was traumatized enough as it was.
Chapter 45: It Has Come To This
Well...this is somewhat messy...
Shadow could have guessed that this thought probably didn't make for very good pillow talk, but at the same time it fortunately was also entirely unimportant. Sonic had just spilled onto his chest and stomach, shouting the black hedgehog's name as his face had screwed up in what had seemed something like a crisscross between unbearable torture and incredible bliss. Shadow had thought he outcry of his lover's voice had been the most wonderful noise he had ever heard, but in combination with the sudden, simultaneous complete spasming of those tight inner walls engulfing him, it was nearly enough to send him over the edge as well.
His name...Sonic had called out his name like there was nothing more important than Shadow on Earth...
The Ultimate Lifeform sped up as he could feel himself racing to his own climax now. The mixed feelings of triumph that he had been able to make Sonic feel like this, as well as his amazement and gratitude stemming from the fact that the blue hedgehog had willingly given himself to him, were enough to override any concerns of his body to conserve any energy and he was using up his last reserves.
"Sha...dow..." Sonic panted after he had already screamed the name of his partner after he had climaxed, the collared hedgehog now in a complete daze, only vaguely aware that things had just gotten a lot stickier between them. He could still feel his entrance being roughly abused and backside filled with harder and more merciless thrusts as Shadow was apparently building up for a finale himself. The sight of the black hedgehog exerting himself above him was nearly enough for Sonic to become aroused again, had he not been completely exhausted by now. Even if the treatment he was currently receiving was slightly harsher than it had been at the beginning, the collared hedgehog grew increasingly aware that there was probably no way he would be able to get out of this now in his helpless position in Shadow's grip while his muscles had seemingly all turned to blueberry jelly. So he would just have to endure it...
"Shadow...thanks," he managed, even when he was cut short by his own yelp as he was just thrust into especially forcefully, the other's pacing now really erratic as he was no doubt about to climax as well. The pain coupled with the feeling of the afterglow that still wrecked him with waves of pleasure when Shadow would not stop stimulating him was almost impossible to bear. In a last, desperate attempt to let this end, Sonic managed to lift himself upwards one last time, disregarding what this meant for the angle at which he was penetrated and managed to seal Shadow's surprised lips with a kiss – and before the collared speedster could even think about whether the other could have been planning to move out of him beforehand or not, it had already happened. With a gasp and another involuntary spasm, Sonic could feel himself for the first time being filled by his supposed Master, warmth shooting into him and letting heat rush into his cheeks once more as the feeling spread through his body. It was almost similar to when he had let Shadow put the new collar on him, but unbearably more intense...
He looked into those red eyes belonging to the black hedgehog who was supposed to own him and couldn't help but smile as he could see that similar thoughts just as loving were mirrored in them, the Ultimate Lifeform now likewise visibly overwhelmed.
"Sonic..." Shadow whispered. He had not yelled his partner's name as he had come inside him, yet the softness with which he for once uttered it therefore made it all the more precious to the hero of Mobius (not least because so far, usually it had been said in mostly much more exasperated tones...)
"Yeah?" Sonic replied quietly with a tired, but contented smile, still a bit disbelieving what the other had just put him through and how he himself had initiated it. A small voice was also busy being excited about the fact that he now, at seventeen, was not a virgin anymore, another voice was questioning whether this, in fact counted as the 'real deal' though, and a third, thankfully louder voice told both of them to shut it, because the owner of all three voices knew he was in love with Shadow, and that was the important part. Now the blue hero could feel himself being gently lowered down against the wall again, legs sliding off the other and he was made aware that his supposed Master also was finally moving out of him, more liquid spilling out onto his lower body as Sonic was unable to hold it back. For a moment he couldn't help but imagine being filled like that again and again, getting claimed and taking it gladly, and the blue speedster's smile grew into an slightly larger weary grin.
"That was good..." Shadow managed to finally reply, still atop him as he bedded the limp and yielding blue form of his unresisting supposed pet on the stone floor again, coming to rest above him with one arm holding him up, their noses nearly touching again.
He had seen stars, just like decades ago in space...that red-hot feeling surging through him, drowning out everything else just like turning Super...
"Understatement of the century," Sonic responded quietly, gazing up into his lover's eyes, spreading his legs underneath Shadow and angling one of them a bit to rub the inside against the side of the other's thigh and hip, caressing the only way he could while his hands were still disabled. "Y'know, for a first time it sure felt like ya knew what you were doing..." he purred, nuzzling the other gently. For the first time after their act, a tired version of a smirk crept back upon the the Ultimate Lifeform's lips, even if Sonic could read correctly in the satisfied glow of his eyes that his compliment had hit home.
"Well, whoever said you were the only god of improvisation around here, blue hedgehog...?" Shadow asked, finally coming to rest half on his side on the floor, half on his belly on Sonic, one black hand already idly running through peach chest fur, the other keeping his head up. Green eyes shot him a faintly mocking look.
"Just you wait 'till next time when I've got my hands free, Shadow..." he retorted, although he could already feel his eyes closing and his utterly exhausted body finally giving in to sleep, every nerve and his brain by now coated in complete warm and fuzzy fluff that was so much more comfortable than the cold, hard dungeon floor. But Shadow on top of him was heavy and warm...the collared hero on impulse couldn't help but nuzzle into the other's soft white patch of fur, already half-way curled up and as comfortable with the other's scent enveloping him as he could be.
"Sonic?" Shadow's voice came, letting the chest the blue hedgehog had his head nestled into vibrate a little, his supposed owner sounding halfway between faintly amused and genuinely soft.
"Yeah...?" Sonic asked back, eyes closed now and barely awake at this point.
"I'll love you as long as you want me to..."
It was the last thing Shadow whispered into a barely raised blue ear before finally sliding off into much-needed sleep, and together with the black and red-streaked arms softly wrapping themselves around the blue hedgehog's torso it ensured that the fastest thing alive soon followed, feeling safe in the other's embrace now, no matter what the world could throw at them.
To be continued...
...in the main story of "He Is My Master" on my profile! Enjoy! And now, as a Bonus, another unrelated M-rated sonadow drabble, that was already up here previously.
Chiisai Kitsune presents:
The Value of Rarity
Sonic is pinned down. Not by me, unfortunately, but that doesn't matter right now. I already had his slender form trembling beneath me a few nights ago, and even if I already want to repeat the experience again, I can wait for a couple more hours.
The hedgehog is currently fighting with Knuckles the Echidna, master of Angel Island, but I'm content to watch. It's not even a serious battle, so there's no need to intervene...and a content smirk crosses my muzzle at the current sight.
Knuckles is looming over a squirming Sonic, holding him down against the grass of the clearing, and the younger hedgehog is powerless against his strength.
"Give up, Sonic," the scarlet creature smirks wickedly, "You've lost."
"Forget it, Knucklehead!" Sonic shoots back and his hips buck again, trying to throw the Guardian off-balance. He nearly succeeds, only to be subdued once more by the echidna, more violently now and the blue one jerks in discomfort as Knuckles takes both of his wrists in one hand and closes the other around Sonic's throat.
Some confusing dialogue takes place. Why the Guardian wants the hedgehog to admit that Knuckles is his uncle, I don't know – these two can't possibly be related, can they?
"I'm gonna strangle you until you lose consciousness if I have to, dammit – admit that you've lost already!"
Sonic merely gives him a cocky, defiant grin and I can feel the edges of my mouth twitch as if in answer, where I stand unseen in the shadows, observing them.
Because Sonic never gives up.
I still remember two weeks ago – the Doctor's latest world domination attempt, and we of course had to prevent it. And it had looked bad.
I was out for the count, barely able to maintain consciousness with more than one bullet hole in my body. Needless to say, Sonic was enraged.
I had felt mildly flattered at that.
But there we were, Sonic, Knuckles, Tails and me, fighting against this huge contraption of the Egg Whatever (Robotnik must be running out of names). Nearly all of us were injured, even that blue speed demon was bleeding and for once it seemed as if the human had won.
But if you think that, you don't know Sonic.
At one point the Doctor had him at gun point. Told him to kneel down and surrender and maybe his life would be spared, so he could be displayed as a circus attraction, a caged pet for entertainment.
It was raining heavily. A real thunderstorm was going on at the bridge where we had fought, all of us were drenched and Sonic was panting badly, barely able to stand. Tails had one of his appendages broken, while Knuckles was fully knocked out from when he had protected the blue hedgehog against a blast a while back. And now Robotnik had emerged from his Eggmobile cockpit, apparently intending to finish his nemesis off at point-blank range for ultimate satisfaction.
"Submit, hedgehog. You don't stand a chance this time."
Bleak situation, right?
And Sonic had fallen to his knees.
Pity for Robotnik that he had changed that at the last minute to a sprinter's position.
Sonic had blasted off at a speed that even I found impressive. The Doctor barely had time to turn around before the blue hedgehog had already made his way into the abandoned cockpit, leveling the lasers of the Egg Whatever at his own creator.
"Wh-what?" the human had stuttered at the smirking hero, his pistol dropping to his side as he was severely out-gunned.
"Big mistake you made there, Doctor…" I managed to wheeze from the ground. His head whipped round, probably surprised that I was still alive, and I did my best to force my lips into a smirk. "The faker never surrenders. You should know that by now."
Which was when Sonic blasted the ground right next to me. I made him suffer for that later, but that's a story for another time.
"I can't really wield that thing here with my injured friends in danger, Eggman! But you better get the hell outta Dodge before I finish you off personally!" Sonic had called from the cockpit, obviously a tidbit challenged with the controls.
Robotnik fled at that, wobbling off to his Egg Carrier Mark III, of course vowing revenge, but who really cared any more? Tails fortunately could fly us back in the tornado and we had all survived to fight another day.
But that was two weeks ago. And by now, Sonic was already healed (and bored) again. So what to do in a situation like this?
Completely abandon me and go pick a fight with Knuckles for the hell of it, of course.
I had found him now, though, (knowing his habits, after all) and even if he doesn't know I'm here, I'll be sure he knows it as soon as night falls. Right now the fight on the clearing seems to be drawing to a close…
Sonic is still pinned down by Knuckles and I would probably be jealous if I didn't know that guy was only interested in Rouge at the most.
"Just surrender, hedgehog!"
But that's the thing about Sonic. And it's why I treasure him so much. Of course, there is also another, more important reason...but, later.
The blue form now twists in the echidna's grip, startling his captor. While I am the stronger of us, Sonic is the more agile. I can't count how often he's managed to slip out of my grasp yet, and for Knuckles, stronger but slower than me, it's no different.
"I don't give up, Knux. Don't you know?" Sonic grins as violet eyes widen (yes, I can see that from here, my vision is that good. Ultimate Lifeform has Ultimate Eyes, you know?) and a blue leg has already freed itself and knees the echidna in the stomach. Knuckles is thrown off Sonic and the blue hedgehog rolls to his feet in one movement.
I love seeing him move.
The fight resumes, and now it's Sonic in the advantage. He's hard to hold when you have him captive, but he's even harder to grab when he's running free.
Knuckles manages to block the spin-dash, but not the backhand kick that follows it up. Sonic takes a few hits as well, but twists his body sideways, so it's only a graze. Which is good. I don't think tonight would be possible if Knuckles managed to break a few ribs of his.
That blue body of his moves so gracefully through the air, I could honestly watch for hours. I just hope I'm not drooling, actually...
No, I think I still have my trademark scowl. Okay. Just checking.
Though his physique and all the subtle movements of his muscles underneath that blue fur are why I love him as well…but again, that's only part of the reason.
Sonic apparently has charged the Guardian head on, now. Using his speed as a weapon as always. They go rolling down the grassy incline on one side of the clearing still scuffling, but Sonic, ever so agile, is the one in control. A sickening crack suddenly ends their descent. I wince slightly. Knuckles has hit his head against a boulder and both separate, coming to a halt sprawling on the ground. Sonic manages to pick himself up, though. Knuckles just groans.
"Ready for another round, Knux?" the blue hedgehog bounces from one foot to the other. Where he gets all that energy from is beyond me.
The echidna raises a hand to his head. I'm not really that concerned – he has a thick skull, I doubt there's actual damage.
"No. This fight is over."
"What?" Sonic looks surprised, his emerald eyes suddenly worried. "You okay, Knux?"
"I damn well am not! You gave me half of a concussion, you blue idiot!"
A thought seems to strike him. "…does that mean I win?"
"If it means you leave me alone so I can attempt to get rid of that headache and get back to my duty, then yeah. You win," Knuckles grumbles, nearly as reluctant as Sonic to give up, but equipped with enough common sense to know that any more fighting would do his head more harm than good.
Sonic grins. "Cool!" He turns to leave and race off, but a spiked, gloved hand reaches out and grabs his ankle, tripping him. The blue hedgehog twists around on the ground, annoyed. "Hey! You surrendered!"
"I did," the echidna admits grudgingly, having drawn up into a sitting position against the stone, but there's already a gleam in his eyes again. "And I'm also challenging you to a rematch tomorrow. You didn't think I'd let you get away like this, did you?"
Sonic's grin reappears at this. "Sure thing, Knucklehead. If you want to get your spiny butt kicked twice in a row, that is."
"You'll just wait, hedgehog, you just wait…"
But he releases the slender blue leg at this and Sonic finally gets to his feet and races off. I notice he's slightly slower than usual, probably also spent. Well, no harm in that. I briefly wonder whether the echidna knows I'm on his island as well. Probably. The Chaos Energy stored in my body must be like a beacon to his senses. But I don't think he'll challenge me today – doesn't look like he's up to face two supersonic hedgehogs at the same day. Maybe he even hopes that I'll fight with Sonic if I meet him…any one of us getting knocked out cold would probably please that sour landlord of an echidna.
Pity for him he doesn't know that Sonic and I have been lovers for almost a year.
Well. Most don't know, and those who do, wonder at it. 'But you fight almost all the time!' they say. And it's true, we bicker a lot, or even fight physically…of course, there's also days when we just enjoy ourselves racing, exploring or just relaxing, but I'll be damned to hell if I let anything of that outside.
The fighting…now there we get to why I treasure him so much, and why I'll only ever love him, and him alone. Not just because he's an equal rival, but…
I stop in my thoughts as I see him again. He's standing in a shallow pool at the foot of a small waterfall, trying to get clean from the fight. I smirk, as he looks slightly uncomfortable in the near vicinity of water, his cocky bravado gone as he believes himself unwatched. I wait in the shadows of the trees again while he finishes with his improvised shower and then wanders off, probably looking for a comfortable place to sleep before he will face Knuckles the next day. I smirk and follow.
He spins around, surprised. The sun has already sunk beneath the horizon and his eyes gleam like gemstones in the twilight. I like it.
"Hi, Shads…" he smiles, genuinely happy to see me, but also a bit curious. "…is there any reason you came up here, too?"
My answer is simple.
He shakes his head, like I had expected. "Nope. Sorry, but not tonight. I need my rest for tomorrow, and frankly, I wouldn't want Knux to catch us in the act." He grins, jabbing his thumb over the shoulder to indicate the direction of the Emerald Shrine.
"He'll have enough of an issue with the headache you gave him. He won't bother us."
"So you saw that, huh?" Sonic crosses his arms and raises an eye ridge, his grin a challenge. "You know that makes you sound like a bit of a stalker?"
I smirk, taking a step forward and grab his hips, bringing our bodies together. "You know I'm more than that, Sonic…" I whisper into his ear, pleased to feel a small shudder running through his body at that.
But then he sighs. "I told you, no." He takes a step backwards, disentangling himself from my grasp and turning away to leave.
He doesn't get far as my hand closes around his wrist.
"And when has that ever bothered me?" I suggest darkly, hoping my teeth and eyes glint in the moonlight. Looking at Sonic's now slightly uncomfortable expression I think I'm having the desired effect anyway.
But he still tries to snatch his arm away, never one to be intimidated easily. "Shads, it's really not a good time right now."
My smirk widens. "And you know that that's exactly when I like it best."
He mock scowls at me. "Yes. I know. And no, not tonight."
I think I take him by surprise when I tackle him to the ground.
"Pinned down for the second time today, Sonic, hmm?"
I am straddling him, his wrists in my hands. I'm not as strong as Knuckles, but against Sonic, it's enough. Holding him down is fun, and I enjoy the ride as he tries to buck me off. Underneath me I can feel his muscles moving, tan and blue fur writhing and I growl at that, letting him know that he should just keep going. Sonic glares.
Then I force him to close those eyes as I bend down and nuzzle at his throat, my unwilling lover giving a quiet moan.
"Oh, yes," I growl.
And once again he has taken me off guard.
Did I mention a certain thing about Sonic and 'not giving up'?
I think so.
As I neared his face, that little bastard took the opportunity to bite into my neck!
It was purely for shock value, because Sonic doesn't have a biting fetish, but it serves his purpose well. Surprised, I rear backwards and he uses that opportunity to throw me off, backflipping upright.
"I said not tonight, Shadow!" He grins at me where I snarl at him from my sitting position, cursing that same agility of his that I love so much. Then he takes off and I follow. I'm glad I wasn't lying about Knuckles nursing his headache because I'm not sure I'd want him to see this. Two hedgehogs, stumbling, chasing and swearing their way through a goddamn forest at complete night time, getting their faces thwacked by branches and tripping over roots in the process is not very dignified. I think some feral squirrel is laughing at me.
Tomorrow I'm gonna Chaos Blast this entire area.
"So you can have your way with me? No way!"
"In a few minutes you won't have a choice…!" I shout, before falling face first into some pine needle bush. Tonight Sonic's gonna pay extra.
I scramble to my feet again, giving chase once more. Suddenly the forest ends and we're on open plain. Now my good spirits are back again. Under usual circumstances, Sonic and I are equally fast and equally enduring at top speed, which makes catching up a little…taxing when the distance between me and him doesn't change for freakin hours.
But Sonic is not at top speed. Not after today. My skates blaze, scorching the grass underneath and I dash after him, still at full power. It doesn't take long until I'm moving next to him.
"Yes, Knuckles does pack quite a punch, doesn't he?" I ask conversationally and his head whips round.
He doesn't finish the sentence before I have scooped him up and carry him back the way we came. He knows better than to struggle right now, since falling off at these speeds would be rather painful. He sulks, though.
"That wasn't fair, Shads. And don't you think you've won."
As a reply I merely bend my head down again and briefly poke my tongue into his belly button, which elicits a squeal at the surprising touch.
I chuckle, as he whacks me upside the head for it, though not nearly hard enough to upset my balance and get both our bones broken. He is now both scowling and pouting, which amuses me further.
"You're mine, Sonic."
We have arrived back in the forest and I stop. His chest is still heaving from the running and the motion feels nice against my skin.
As soon as I halt, though, Sonic once again pushes against me, and as a response I drop him on the forest floor.
"You wanted down, right? And besides, with all the soft grass here, lying down is rather comfortable…"
"Don't you start."
"As if you had a choice." I smirk and cross my arms. "You're too exhausted to escape me by running."
"That's right." He grins and drops into a ready stance a few feet from me. "But I'm not too tired for fighting for my freedom yet."
And that's all that I need. I'll claim my greatest treasure tonight once more.
And I charge. He dodges that first one neatly, his reflexes sometimes faster than my own. I can make up for that, though, as I rebound from the tree that was behind him and fling myself at his form once more. His sneaker hits me pretty straight into the chest. That was not part of the plan.
"I said I didn't feel like it tonight, didn't I?" his teeth flash in a cocky smile, as I, winded, try to catch my breath back.
"That, Sonic, was a big mistake," I wheeze, my gloved hand pressed against the white patch of chest fur. He just stands there, knowing that running is useless anyway and grinning down at me. Sonic feels safe for the moment, and I appreciate once more his slender form in the moonlight filtering through the trees. He has his hands laced behind his quilled head, leaving his toned torso free for me admire, one leg tucked behind the other, unclothed save for his shoes. His tail seems to wag a little and I frown. Is he actually teasing me? Bastard.
I get to my feet again and Sonic resumes a stance more suited for battle.
Him against me. He himself is the prize and we know it.
This time, I feint. I pretend to spin-dash again, but turn it into a somersault at the last minute. Sonic had ducked, but this was a mistake. I swipe his legs from underneath him and he stumbles. Not enough to make him fall, because his balance is excellent, but I'm close enough. Our hands lock, both pushing against the other and the fight is pretty much even. In upper body strength, I have the upper hand, but his powerful legs, getting more exercise from running than mine do from skating, dig into the soft ground and make more than up for it. Both our breathing turns laboured as we exert our muscles, and I think Sonic's starting to sweat, which I like. I grin deviously at him. He won't be able to defend himself tonight.
My grin seems to have reenergized him. Suddenly emerald eyes flash and I'm the one in danger of losing my ground. It's always like that when he fights. Never giving up, always some energy reserve.
"Why won't you surrender already?" I grunt, trying to get a better footing in our stand-up arm wrestling match. He merely grins in response, his lips part.
"You know the answer, Shads…"
That is the opportunity I need. For the third time this night I bring my face close to him and use the chance of his opened mouth for a kiss.
Sonic, as planned, loses his composure for a second. The invasion of my tongue into him coupled with my hands pushing him back is too much. My foot hooks behind his knee and I bring him down. Sitting astride on my prize once more, I can't help but grin. He looks flustered, annoyed, and adorable.
…if you tell anybody that I said 'adorable', I'll shoot you.
"Let me go!"
"I won't, Sonic…not until tomorrow morning."
"The other way round, but yes."
He bucks again, trying to twist away, but this time I'm prepared. I bend down again and nuzzle a teasing trail up his torso, stopping just below his jawline. Sonic shudders and arches his back, but before he can do his little bite-routine, I'm already sitting up again. His wrists are still my captives, so there is little he can do.
"Will you give up now?"
"Do you really have to ask?" Sonic replies and struggles once more underneath me, underlining his point. He's not going to surrender. Sonic never does. Except…
I transfer his wrists into one hand and use my other one to reach behind me. Below me. In between his legs and he jerks, more violently now.
"Ahh! Shadow! Stop it!" But his face is flushed and I think I already felt something down there.
"Submit, Sonic. Now."
A futile kick of a leg against my back is the answer.
"I think I have had enough of that now…" I growl. As he looks at me with questioning eyes, I suddenly kiss him again, more brutal than before. He gasps and squirms, but his arms are still immobilized. I ravage his mouth, brushing against teeth that could so easily bite down but do not. Sonic's tongue fights back, but weakly. He's going to lose.
And then suddenly his knee is in between my legs. Kneeling over him, I have bent forward so much that my tail was pretty much poking at the moon and he could raise it there. At the moment it just hovers there gently, but it could kick forward any minute now, thus effectively cancelling all my plans for the entire night and for the next two weeks possibly, too.
"I said no," he smirks.
I narrow my eyes. I had hoped I wouldn't have to use this. "Chaos Control."
"What-?" Sonic's eyes widen as I suddenly disappear. He tries to scramble up, which was an error. Because I'm already back on top of him and now that he has straightened his legs, there is nothing hindering me from straddling him once again, a fact that obviously annoys him a lot.
"That was an unfair trick!"
"Never said I would fight fair, did I?" I lean in to kiss him again and even if Sonic tries to escape the touch, his shudder shows me he enjoys it as my lips brush over his neck.
As soon as I draw back, his eyes open again, and I'm pleased to see they're still trying to glare, but filled with desire at the same time. One should think I've won…
Suddenly one hand of his escapes my grip and shoots forward, around my throat. This time it's me who is surprised. Almost out of reflex, my other hand wraps itself around his throat. Neither of us puts pressure on his grip yet. I just stare down at him and he stares up at me. Fighting with our gazes. Because Sonic never gives up, never surrenders, never submits…
And then he smiles, releases my neck and lies back down, both his arms draped lazily on the grass behind his head. He smirks up at me.
"Allright. You win."
…except to me. And that is why I treasure him above all else.
I can't help but smile as I now see my prize stretched out beneath me, relaxed and at ease. He gives me a half-lidded grin, waiting for me to take action. I have just won him, so I'm the one in control. I run a hand along the contours of his chest, watching with delight as Sonic squirms a little, for he is ticklish and I know it. I finally move off him, loving the view of his stretched-out form on the forest floor.
"On your belly."
He obediently rolls over, and I'm filled with another wave of pleasure. Sonic the fighter, Sonic who never bows down or does anything against his will, is mine. And that makes him so precious.
My equal in everything, I usually try to catch him an inopportune moment, always fighting against and at the same time for him. It's a game and he enjoys it - of course I wouldn't go after him like this otherwise. He knows what he'd need to say to make me stop immediately, but he doesn't. Because he also knows how much I love him for it, for making himself scarce and then still handing himself like a beautiful present to me, when he submits to no-one else, no matter the nature of the battle.
He is now splayed before me, and I gently put a hand underneath his hips, pulling him up towards me. I trail a finger up and down underneath his tail and am pleased to feel him trembling. He knows what comes next. Bent over, waiting for me to invade him. I cherish the moment. I finger the opening briefly, at which he draws a sharp breath. I smile, I adjust my hips and move forward, sliding in slowly.
It would be cruel to say that I love this part, but I do. I don't want him to submit that easily, so it is good that the first few thrusts are never that comfortable for Sonic. Today I draw them out a little bit, especially for the sneaker print in my chest. In front of me, I can see his body moving, legs spreading as he tries to accommodate me. His ears are flat against his head as he whimpers a little and I push forward harder.
"Shadow! Please…more gentle.." he begs, a tone which I can hear only ever so rarely from him. I think I can maybe top it and run a hand along his ticklish side, which now has him in double discomfort.
But then again, I'm not that cruel. Deciding to get started in earnest, I move my hand finally in between his legs and move it to distract Sonic from the rocking of my hip. He shudders and moans and I know I'm doing my job right.
When he squirms again, this time it's in pleasure. I think he's nearing his climax, so I grip him hard to prevent it for the moment. Time for some special treatment…
I am Shadow the Ultimate Lifeform, created with the help of a fake Chaos Emerald. I am a living collector of the Chaos Energy that surrounds us, which enable me to use techniques like Chaos Spear or Chaos Blast, where I expel a huge portion of the collected energy with great force. But that's not all the applications of Chaos power…
I grin and start letting it pour out of my body very slowly, each pore radiating miniature doses of that energy. Invisible to the average Mobian, but, how can I say that…as a user of the Emeralds, Sonic feels it. And right now he is very 'receptive' to Chaos Power, if I can make a double entendre.
He gasps, and tries to get away from me, but I pull him tighter and just thrust with more force, probably hitting some special spot, for he cries out. I once just held him in my arms while I did that, and he described the sensationg of being in contact with my skin as something in between a tickle, a prickling, and a red hot-glowing ice cube.
This is the first time I tried it while...well...and it seems to have the desired effect.
Sonic's muscles spasm wildly against me inside him and I have some trouble subduing him again, one hand around his neck where he is half-lying, half-kneeling in the grass before me. And then I move my other ungloved hand in between his legs again and grab him tightly.
Sonic all but shrieks and I love every second of it.
Not stopping for him any more, I start moving again, Sonic twisting like a wild animal beneath me, but at the same time gasping and moaning in pleasure. He doesn't seem to mind my presence inside him any more thanks to my little buzzy trick and so I can move a little bit harder than usual. Sonic whines, but I merely increase my pace – until he finally releases. I think he called my name and get another wave of pleasure from that, but I'm really concentrating on something else here. Now he's panting and writhing and waiting for me to finish as I can feel myself building up for a climax. With one final thrust I come into him, and I think I'm actually flying now, golden streaks in my vision.
"Agh…Shadow…" Sonic jerks a little bit beneath me, and I give a long sigh, still holding him close to me and letting myself down on the grass. My hands on his hip pull him with me, so that he now lies on his side with his back towards my front, me still inside him, soft now.
"What…was…?" his breath is still coming irregularly, but he manages to turn his head back towards me where I lie, smiling in the afterglow.
"What, that?" I ask, briefly letting the outpour peak up again and he yelps. "Chaos Energy." I smirk. "You remember it, right?"
"…you're completely screwed up," he quips and turns back again, still in my hold. "Uh, by the way…" he squirms a little bit uncomfortably, but I give him very little room to do that. "You can pull out now."
"Nope." I nuzzle against his neck. "Not until you've gone to sleep in my arms."
"Shh. Sleep. You surrendered in our little fight, after all. Meaning, you submit to the victor. And I claimed you. You're mine."
He turns his head around again, looking into my eyes and gives a slightly curious smile. His muscles tighten as he does this and I enjoy the feeling.
"I don't know whether I can sleep like that…"
"You try." I nudge him with my snout. "Now sleep or else we'll do this again."
Sonic merely snorts and turns around once more, writhing a little against me as he tries to get comfortable and accustomed to my presence inside him. I shift the grip of my arms and now hug his torso, relishing the warmth of his body in this cool summer night. I don't need to sleep, but I do like it when Sonic's nearby…
After a while, his breathing becomes calm and even. I wait for a few minutes more and then pull out, turn him around, wanting to see his face when I wake up. Emerald eyes open sleepily.
"Fooled you…wasn't sleeping yet." He gives a small grin and this time I snort.
"I think I need to flip you over again."
"No chance, Shadow." He nuzzles his face into my chest and curls up there. "After this ride, my butt is off limits to you for at least 48 hours. Gods, you were crazy."
I smirk. "But it felt good, right?"
"It was heaven and hell combined, yeah. Just don't do it every time." His voice now comes muffled from somewhere in my chest fur and I chuckle as his breath tickles me.
"Sweet dreams, faker," I murmur and kiss him goodnight on the forehead.
In the morning, first thing we did was getting clean. No need for Knuckles to get the shock of his life, after all. I tried to get Sonic into something underneath the water fall, but he seems to make good of his 48-four-ban. I grudgingly respect it, because after all, I wouldn't really try to force him into anything he didn't want. And to be truthful, I don't know whether I could even overpower him if I wanted to. The sneaker incident prooves that. Usually Sonic always submits before I have truly won, so our battles never had an actual victor…but in a way, I like that much better.
I notice that Sonic is limping slightly and smirk.
He throws me first a glare and then I get shoved, albeit playfully. "You jerk! Of course I am, how could I not be?"
When I do nothing but broaden my evil grin at this he gives me a mock-insulted expression. "I hope you're happy. I am extremely uncomfortable right now, stock tired, and if Knuckles touches my tail I'll scream."
"You didn't have to make it so difficult. You could always be a docile pet and just lie down when somebody tells you to, then we wouldn't have all this trouble."
"Yeah, right." He crosses his arms and gives an ironic grin. "Because we both know you'd be any gentler with me if I did that. Plus, I'm Sonic. Why you chose me as your lover if you actually want someone who's caught that easily, I'll never know." He scratches his ear at that, frowning, but then smiles at me again and quickly steps at my side. "Though I'm glad you did."
A last peck on my cheek and he's suddenly gone, racing off towards his and Knuckles' designated battle ground for today. I stand here, watching his dust cloud (slightly slower than usual) disappear and give a knowing, small smile to myself.
Sonic is probably going to lose to the Guardian today. I think he'll still have more victories than losses, because as me and him, these two are pretty evenly matched, but that's okay. I know Sonic, after all. He won't give up. Usually Knuckles only has won when he accidentally breaks one of Sonic's bones with his strength, or, more commonly, knocks the hedgehog out if Sonic doesn't collapse from exhaustion. Because the submission of Sonic only belongs to me and to no one else. Even I have to battle for it.
And that is why I love him so much.
I never had anything of my own. Born as an experiment, I never had any possessions like others…and then even my only friend was taken from me. I had nothing.
But now I do. Something none other can ever have, because Sonic won't let them. I took his innocence back then and I'm the only one who gets to take him now. My first possession that no one can take away, because Sonic can fight. Not submitting to anyone, except to me.
Mine. I have to smile at that.
My lips part as I mutter to no one in particular, hearing the faint sounds of a beginning fight in the distance:
"Why I chose you, Sonic? Because you are my equal. Why I love you? Because rarity is value, and you are unique."
