Ch. 9 New Enemies
Cream and I walked down the hall. "Wasn't the dance awesome," she asked. I giggled at her enthusiasm. "You bet, I so loved your dress," I said.
"I loved your dress," she replied. She started laughing. Something was in her drink on Saturday. My dress was an ice light lavender color and it was strapless. Cream's dress was white and had ice blue snowflakes one it. I wondered where Sonic was. Maybe he would surprise me at my locker with a pink rose. Or give me a bouquet. Cream snapped her fingers in front of my face. "Huh, oh sorry," I said. She smiled.
"Don't worry about it," she replied. I noticed a green hedgehog leaning against a locker. Girls were surrounding him. One of those girls being Sally. The hedgehog had ice blue eyes with quills that stuck off the back of his head like Sonic. Sunglasses were perched on his head, he had on a black jacket, a green t shirt, black jeans, and green and black sneakers. He was smiling deviously at the girls. He looked like straight up bad boy. Cream noticed me looking at him. She looked disgusted. "You don't like him do you," she asked. I looked at her, shocked.
"No way," I said, "Who is he anyway?"
"Scourge the Hedgehog."
"Is he related to Sonic?"
"No clue. All I know is that they're at each other's throats all the time. You know what? I think that's his half-brother."
"I think they have the same dad. They were twins. Born on the same day, but I think Scourge is older by a few minutes."
"Sonic never mentioned him before."
"Maybe because he doesn't want you around him. I heard he has like four kids."
"What? How old is he?"
"Is that even legal?"
"Why does Sonic hate him? Not that I don't see how."
"I don't know. Before you came along, I never really knew Sonic. He was just there. I knew who he was, just not what kind of person he was."
"Did they ever get into a fight?"
"Plenty of them."
"What? It's my boyfriend."
"Technically it's tied. Well from the fights at school anyway."
"You don't want to see Sonic in a fight."
"He's a beast. Tears Scourge up most of the time."
"Wow, he seems so nice."
"When his temper's controlled. Once it explodes: it explodes. No ifs ands or buts about it."
"I'm kind of scared now."
"Amy, he wouldn't blow his top on you. Scourge is the only one basically. Everyone else is kool with Sonic."
"Oh." We reached our lockers and I saw Sonic. He smiled brightly at me. It was kind of hard for me to imagine him angry. I smiled back and went into his arms. I saw Scourge walk by. His eyes were on me in Sonic's arms. I had my glasses on today so I knew what he was thinking. He winked at me before going out of my view. Was he hitting on me or just trying to make Sonic mad? I felt Sonic's arms tighten around me. I looked up at him and gave him a quick peck on the lips. He smiled and released me. I opened my locker and started getting my books out. Sonic messed with my ponytail, swinging it back and forth. I giggled. "Bored much," I said. I heard him chuckle.
"A little," he answered.
"How was your weekend?"
"You don't have to worry about it."
"Scourge is his name right?"
"Are you stalking me?" I laughed.
"No, or am I?" He laughed.
"Creepy stalker girl."
"Don't make me get my hand sanitizer on you." I looked at him, glaring at him playfully. He looked scared. We started laughing. I got the rest of my books out and closed my locker. Sonic took my books and walked down the hallway with me. We entered out homeroom and I saw Scourge sitting in the back of the room, still surrounded by girls and even a few boys. The boys were dressed similar to him so they were probably his friends. He was talking, moving his hands around as gestures. He looked up and saw me and Sonic. He winked at me again and gave a mischievous smirk to Sonic. I saw Sonic shot a glare at him before putting my books on my desk. I sat down and watched Sonic sit down at his desk. "Hey," I said leaning toward him. He looked at me.
"What," he asked, leaning closer so he could hear me.
"I'll do my best."
I waited on the front steps of the school. It was at least eight o' clock. I was waiting for Sonic who was at basketball practice. I leaned on the side wall. Scourge walked out the double doors with his buddies. They were laughing. Scourge spotted me and smiled. I looked away. Please don't let him come over here I thought to myself. He came over with his friends. They stopped in front of me, Scourge being the closest one to me. "Hello beautiful," his deep menacing voice said. I rolled my eyes. He smirked. "What's a beauty like you doing out here all alone," he asked. I flipped him off and looked at the double doors, wanting Sonic to come out and get Scourge away from me.
"You waiting for your boyfriend?" I glared at him.
"What's it to ya?"
"I don't know, just seems like a bad thing of my brother to leave such a beautiful young lady by herself."
"Leave me alone."
"Why? Wouldn't you rather smooch?"
"Not even in the afterlife."
"Ouch. I thought you and me had spark."
"Hmm, you're hiding your feelings. When you're asleep, you'll be thinking about me."
"In a nightmare, maybe."
"Then I'll be the one who saves you from the dragon."
"No, you'll be the dragon."
"And then what? Sonic's gonna be your knight in shining armor?"
"He is now so I don't see why I have to wait to dream."
"You've got mouth don't ya?"
"And you have a meat brain don't ya?" He licked his lips.
"No, but then again, if that's what makes you happy." He moved closer to me, backing me up against the wall. I heard the doors open, right when Scourge's lips almost met mine. "Scourge back away from her," I heard Sonic's cold voice say. It frightened me even more than Scourge's voice did. Scourge smirked. He looked at his brother. "Or what? You're gonna fight me? Please. It's been a long four months. You don't know what I'm capable of," he responded.
"I'm not scared of you Scourge and I never will be."
"Tough talk. Trying to show off for your girl here? She'll be mine before you know it," he said before backing away from me. His friends looked like they were about to attack Sonic if the needed to. "It's okay boys. No need. For now at least," Scourge said. His friends relaxed. They walked away. Scourge looked like he was gonna punch Sonic dead in the face by his look, but he walked away. Sonic watched him go. Once he was out of sight, his eyes turned back to me.
"You okay? Did he hurt you," he asked, worry was in his voice. All the anger left his face as he took me in his arms. I relaxed and wrapped my arms around him.
"Yea. Thanks for coming when you did," I said.
"Of course. I wasn't going to let him kiss you when you didn't want to be kissed."
"He said it was a long four months. Sonic, where was he?" Sonic pulled away and walked me to the car. He didn't say anything. He opened my door for me and I got in. He shut it behind me. "Sonic please tell me," I said when he started the car. His hands clenched onto the steering wheel.
"Some jail center for teenagers," he said through clenched teeth.
"Why was he in there?"
"That doesn't matter Amy. What matters is that he's a criminal and I need you to stay away from him. He's not a good guy. He will hurt you when he gets the chance."
"What does he want from me in the first place?"
"My anger. He did the same thing to Sally. He harassed her until he got my wrath. That's what he wants. He wants me to go after him."
"But you won't right."
"Amy, you mean more to me than Sally did. If he does one thing to hurt you or make you unhappy-" he cut himself off. He took a deep breath. "Let's just say it won't end too good."
"Sonic, you're not the only one who's fighting against him. I hate him already and I barely know the guy. But, is he our only enemy?"
"I don't know. He has a girlfriend. Fiona. She follows him around like a puppy."
"So, she'll probably come after me?"
"Yup, she'll pick fights with you just like Scourge does with me."
"Don't worry. I'll get my hand sanitizer on her," I said smiling. He smiled. He pulled up to the curve in front of my house. He looked at me.
"When we're at school and I'm not around, just be careful."
"Okay. You be careful too," I said before kissing him softly. He kissed me back. His lips molding mine gently and carefully. We pulled away after a few minutes. "I'll pick you up tomorrow," he said as I opened the car door. "Okay," I said before getting out. I shut the door behind me and ran up to my house. I opened the door and went in the house. Thankful my mom and John weren't home. I went up to my room and watched TV for the rest of the night.
"And so we are going to be doing cases where you guys get to pretend to be real lawyers," Ms. Oxford told us. Cream giggled quietly and I saw her phone under her desk as she started texting. I shook my head a little. "Amy and Fiona, why don't you guys get us started," Ms. Oxford said. I got up and went to one of the front of the room and sat down at one of the two desks up there. A red brown fox with red hair and ice blue eyes wearing a black shirt that showed some of her stomach, black pants, and black shoes, with black hand warmers sat down at the other one. She glared at me. "Okay, who wants to be the lawyer for the defendant," Ms. Oxford asked. Fiona raised her hand. "And that leaves Amy with the plaintiff," Fiona said, matter-of-factly. Ms. Oxford nodded. "Okay, and the class is going to be your jury. Now the case is that the plaintiff was walking home to their car when they were confronted by a gunman in the parking lot, trying to kidnap them," Ms. Oxford said. I nodded, sounded pretty easy.
"Well my client was just minding her own business when the attacker came," I said.
"My client denies that he had anything to do with your client. He wasn't even in the same parking lot," Fiona shot back.
"No, my client has bruises and marks from the gunman's attack and she has fingerprints that were left on her car."
"My client has an alibi. He was across town."
"Then how did your client's handprints get on my client's car. My client says he was trying to rob her and then she refused so he tried to kidnap her. My client states that he dragged her to a black van and tried to throw her in."
"Jury, what do you think," Ms. Oxford asked the class. The class discussed among themselves. "Guilty," they shouted when they were finished. Fiona glared at me again. I shot a cocky smile at her.
"Very good girls. Oh, you may now be dismissed." I walked back to my desk and grabbed my books. Fiona pushed me out of her way in the doorway. I ignored her. She turned around and knocked my books out my hand when we were in the hallway. "What's your problem," I half yelled. Sonic ran around the corner just as Scourge ran around the other corner. "You're my problem," she yelled back. She slapped me suddenly. I punched her in the mouth and we got into a fight. A crowd started to surround us. Fiona tried to grab my quills, but I knocked her on the ground and started slapping her like crazy. Sonic picked me up and tried to pull me away, but I got out of his arms just as Fiona got up. She swung and I dodged before I punched her in the eye. She really couldn't fight. I never fought a day in my life yet I was beating the life out of her. She grabbed my quills and swung me down to the ground. I grabbed onto her hair, pulling her down with me. I scratched her face as she punched me in the stomach. Fiona got on top of me and slapped me. I punched her again and kicked her off me. I got up and went for another strike, before both Tails and Sonic grabbed me. Fiona got up and was about to jump at me before Scourge grabbed her and pulled her back. She struggled in his arms as I struggled in Sonic and Tails' arms. "Come at me loser," she yelled.
"Scared to make the first punch dipstick," I yelled back. John suddenly came and saw me and Fiona struggling to get out of the arms of the people who wanted us to stop. John looked stunned at the sight of me.
"Mr. Hedgehog and Mr. Hedgehog, do you mind escorting your girlfriends to the office," he said. I felt Tails' hands leave my arms. Scourge lead Fiona down the other side of the hallway. I tried to follow, but Sonic swung me around and walked me the other way. Once we were in an empty corridor, he spoke. "I thought you said we were going to ignore them," he said.
"She hit me first," I shot at him, still angry. He stopped walking and pushed me up against a locker gently. He made me look him in the eye.
"Amy, we can't let them get to us. They want anger. That's what they feed off of. We can't let them have what they want. I understand that you're angry. So am I, but we're not going to let them get the best of us," he said softly, almost soothingly.
"Sorry, I just never got mad at a classmate before and I let her stupidness get me. To be honest, I might have went a little over board with my first fight."
"That was your first fight?" Sonic looked confused and shocked. I smiled at his expression.
"Remind me to never piss you off," he said. I laughed and he smiled. He kissed me, evaporating what little anger I had left. After he pulled away, he kissed my forehead. I smiled even more, happy to be in his gentle touch.
"Amy, you so owned her," Cream said over the phone.
"Why is everybody saying that," I asked.
"Because it's true. You taught that girl a lesson that she won't forget."
"And what would that be?"
"Don't piss you off. I think it was a lesson to everybody. I mean, it took two strong guys to hold you back. You practically jumped out of Sonic's arms like it was nothing and he's the strongest person I know, well until I saw you punch he was."
"Wow, I didn't think it was hard. I just broke free."
"Did you know how much damage you did?"
"No, by the time Sonic and I got to Fallow's office, they were gone. What did I do?"
"Busted her lip, gave her a black eye, and ripped some of her hair out. You are a she devil, you know that?" I laughed.
"Now I do." My mom and John walked into my room. "I got to go. I'll see you tomorrow Cream," I said before hanging up.
"You know what you did was wrong right," my mom said, crossing her arms.
"Yes, but so what? I whooped her butt and it's over now."
"Amy, fighting is one of the worst things in school you could do," John stated.
"I know. I know I'm grounded, so you guys don't have to sit here and lecture me." I turned away from them.
"Amelia, do you know that you hurt Sonic," my mother asked.
"What are you talking about? I didn't hit him when he tried to pull me away."
"Not in that way. Amelia, you are dragging this boy down. What happened to the smart happy girl I gave birth to? Ever since the marriage you have been off. Why don't you tell us what's going on?" I looked at them.
"Like you guys even care."
"We do care, baby, you know that."
"No I don't! Ever since you guys got married it's all about the new baby and finding the perfect house and molding the perfect family! You guys don't care a lick about my happiness or what's going on in my life!"
"Amy that's not-"
"Just get out!" Tears fell down my cheeks as I looked away. My mom mad a move to come toward me. "Go away! Just leave me like you left dad!" They went out my mom shutting the door behind her. I laid down on my bed. My mother wasn't supposed to be my enemy, but she was. I've been making a lot of new enemies lately. Something was wrong with me, but I just didn't know what.
Wow, didn't know Amy could fight. Sorry about that, just saw two fights today and was thinking about it when i was writing this. There might be more fights. I may add one or two more in the story, but i don't know. Tell me what you thought of this fight and then tell me if i should write another one. I had to put a little sonamy fluff at the beginning with them flirting with each other a little and i couldn't forget the hand sanititizer. Anyway... PLEASE REVIEW!
