Hey, You're Not Shadow! by LittleMissHippie
Note: Inspired by the cutscene where Amy mistakes Silver for Sonic.
Disclaimer: I don't own Sonic, Amy, Silver, Blaze, or Shadow. But oh, how I wish I did…
"Ah, relaxation," I sighed in content, as I lounged on the beach. The sun was shining, the waves were staying far away from me… A perfect day. A relaxing day. And the best part was… Amy wasn't anywhere near me!
"Shadow!" a voice yelled. I sighed. Speak of the devil and the devil shall appear… Wait, did she just call me Shadow? "Oh, Shadow, where have you been? I've been looking for you all day!" she paused, as if noticing something. I stared at her, silently questioning her sanity.
"Hey, you're not Shadow!" she yelled, finally realizing her mistake.
"Uh, duh? Why are you looking for Shadow, anyway?" I questioned. I thought she was all stalker-crazy over me. Not Shadow.
"None of your business!" she shot back.
"Ooh, Amy has a crush on Shadow! I can't wait to tell the whole wide world…" I teased. Seriously, Amy crushing on Shadow? That was priceless!
"Whoops, look at the time! Gotta go. Bye, Sonic!" Amy said quickly. She then sped off, before I could say anything else.
I stared at the spot where she had been. "…that was weird."
"So, Blaze, that's how I met Amy Rose," I said, finishing my story.
"Silver. You already told me how you met Amy four times. I'm getting sick of hearing about her," Blaze replied, sounding kind of exasperated. Had I really been talking about Amy that much? I hadn't thought so…
"Shadow!" someone called, as they hugged me from behind. Wait. I recognized that voice! But why was she looking for Shadow? "Hey, you're not Shadow!" she stated, as soon as she recognized me.
"…Shadow? Ames, why are you looking for Shadow?" I asked. She stopped hugging me as soon as she heard my voice. I turned my back on Blaze and looked at Amy, waiting for an answer.
"Did I say Shadow? I meant… Sonic!" she hurriedly corrected herself.
"Nice try, Amy. Why are you looking for Shadow?" I questioned her. Oh no, what if she…? No. She wouldn't. She doesn't. I decided to ask anyway. "Amy, do you like Shadow?"
"No way! That's crazy, Silver!" she stated. She then said, "Whoops, look at the time. Gotta run! I'll see you later, Silver!" She then sped off, before I could question her anymore.
"…so Amy Rose can hug you and I can't?" Blaze asked, sounding slightly mad. Just what I needed. Blaze mad at me…
I walked around the park, wondering where Rose was. She was supposed to be here ages ago… Where could she be? Maybe she'd decided not to come. That wouldn't surprise me…
"Shadow?" a voice asked quietly, as if afraid of the answer.
"Hello, Rose," I replied, turning to face her. So she'd decided to show up after all.
"Shadow!" she exclaimed, her face lighting up. "Oh, I've had such a hard time finding you…" she trailed off. I looked at her oddly, wondering if maybe there was something wrong with her head.
"What? Why are you looking at me strangely?" she asked, a perplexed look on her face.
"Rose, I told you I'd meet you at the park. Where are we now?" I asked.
"We're at the park," she answered slowly. Her face then went back to its previous happy look. "Shadow, we're at the park!"
"Yes, we are. And you didn't tell anyone you were meeting me at the park, did you?" I asked, slightly wary of her answer.
"Uh… I didn't tell anyone exactly… but Sonic and Silver might have some ideas…" she trailed off again.
"Wait. Ideas? What kind of ideas, Rose?" I asked, my eyes narrowing. I searched her face for any clues. "You don't mean what I think you mean, do you? Rose…"
"Whoops, look at the time. Gotta go! See ya later, Shadow," Amy said. She then kissed me on the cheek and sped off.
"Rose! Come back here!" I yelled, and then proceeded to chase after her.
