Sonourge: Opposites Attract
At Chester's Cheddar, Sonic and Scourge got their pizza, and sat right next to Vector as instructed. They each took a bite, and Sonic spoke up.
"So Vector. You seemed pretty chill with us being a couple. I know that you 'know what love is', but I kind of figured that you would've at least made fun of us or something."
Vector laughed quietly to himself and looked over to Sonic. "Yeah, you would think I would do something like that, but that would make me a hypocrite. Vector the Crocodile is not a hypocrite."
Sonic smirked and smiled. "Oh yes. It is very clear that you are not a hypocrite. Why would you be something like that?"
Vector half-heartedly at the sarcastic remark and then continued to somewhat glare at Sonic. They simply stared at each other for about ten seconds when Sonic finally realized something.
"Wait… why would you be a hypocrite if you made fun of me and Scourge's relationship?"
Vector laughed to himself again. "I was wondering when you were going to ask that. I thought I was just going to have to tell you."
"Vector… is there something you need to tell us?"
"Yeah… I do. And you two are the only two I have told so far, so you better keep your mouths shut about this." Sonic and Scourge nodded and urged Vector to continue. "I would be a hypocrite for making fun of you guys, because I'm actually… in love with someone."
"Well, yes. Everyone knows that you're in love with Vanilla. That's not so much of a big secret."
"It's not Vanilla, though. It never has been Vanilla. I only said that I liked her so that people would get off my back with how I need a girl in my life."
"Then who is this mysterious person that you like then."
"Uh… uh… you know, I don't think now is not the best time to be telling people about my silly relationship. I think I'm just going to go."
Vector got up from his chair and was about to walk out of the door, but Scourge extended his arm and grabbed Vector's arm. Vector stopped and tentatively turned back.
"You know our secret, Vector," Scourge began. "I think you need to dish out a few secrets of your own. Stop being a coward and sit back down."
Vector sighed. "Fine. But you two better not make fun of me when I say who it is, okay?"
Sonic sighed. "Vector, we aren't hypocrites either. We will not make fun of you no matter if it was someone like Vanilla or someone like Amy. Though if it is Amy, I give you the best of luck. Mainly because I would want you two to stay together until at least Scourge and I get married."
Scourge turned to Sonic with a shocked expression on his face and asked, "What was that, Sonic?"
"Nothing, Scourge. Just go back to eating your pizza." Scourge continued to stare at Sonic for a second then shrugged and went back to gnawing at his pizza.
Sonic then turned his attention back to Vector. "So… who is the lucky lady?"
"That's the thing… the lucky lady is actually… a guy."
Sonic then looked at Vector while he processed that fact. He then said somewhat softly, "Oh, I see. Now, I understand why you don't really want to talk about it. We're kind of going through the same thing." Sonic placed his hand on Scourge. They looked at each other and there muzzles became a light pink. This caused Vector to have a light smile.
"Heh… I wish I had what you two had. This person… means a lot to me right now, but he doesn't really see that I love him as much as I do."
Scourge stopped eating his pizza for a second and put it down. He looked up to Vector and said, "Yeah, I know what you're talking about. The few days before Sonic and I got into a relationship, I had already had feelings for him." Scourge looked over to Sonic briefly. "I even had a speech ready for when the right time came. I never had to use it, but everything kind of fell into place, you know?"
Sonic smiled. "Really? Vector, I guess you should do that for this… guy. If Scourge can do it for me, I'm sure you can do it for…"
"Espio," Vector finally said. Sonic and Scourge frowned.
"I don't know how to say this to you, Vector," Sonic started. "But Espio was telling us that he liked somebody. He didn't really say who it was or even what gender this person was, but he seemed like he really liked him or her."
"Oh…" Vector sighed.
Scourge rested him palm on Vector's hand. "Don't give up on him. We did not sit here and talk about awkward relationships with you just so you can go give up on him. He may still love you; you just have to try a little harder."
Vector smiled with a little more self-confidence and pride. "Alright, thanks Scourge." Vector got up and was about to walk away from the restaurant, but he then turned around to face the table again.
"Uh… can you two… you know."
Sonic smirked. "You got it, Vector." Sonic leaned in towards Scourge and they both shared a warm and wonderful kiss. Vector merely wanted some boosted confidence to be able to express his feelings for Espio, and that kiss was all that he needed at the moment. He turned around and left "Chester's Cheddar" with a confident smile on his face.
The two of then finally separated when Vector exited the restaurant. Scourge smiled and said, "How good of a couple are we? We not only easily in love with each other, but we gave love to Vector and Espio."
Sonic lifted his pizza into the air. "Here's to being the best couple in all of Mobius." Scourge mimicked Sonic and lifted his pizza into the air as well. They touched their pizzas together as if they were fancy glasses and then they each took a bite.
After chewing and swallowing his bite, Scourge smacked his piece of pizza against the side of Sonic's face. Sonic rubbed the side of his face and his glove got a little dirty with pizza sauce. His face looked distraught. As Scourge looked at Sonic's distraught, he then got worried that he did something bad. That's when Sonic gave Scourge a devious smile.
"You shouldn't have done that, Green."
Scourge, now in on the fun, then said, "Bring it on, Blue."
Sonic smacked his piece of pizza against Scourge's face and Scourge then tackled Sonic out of his chair. On the floor, Scourge lightly slapped Sonic a few times with his pizza, getting his face nice and dirty.
Sonic tried to block all of the blows, but wasn't doing a very good job. The two of them then began to giggle in the midst of the moment. "Ready to give up, Blue?"
"Of course not." Sonic tried to get up, but Scourge lightly pushed him back down. "Okay, forget it. I give up."
Scourge laughed to himself, "Hah, success." Scourge then lowered his head and connected his lips with Sonic's. "That was just a warm-up. I will give you the real stuff another day."
Sonic smacked Scourge again with his pizza and said, "I'll be ready for whatever you got."
Scourge got off of Sonic and extended a hand to him, helping him to get up. Sonic and Scourge then stared at each other as Sonic wiped away some of the pizza sauce from his face.
Scourge grabbed Sonic's hand and said, "Don't worry about that, I'll take care of it."
Sonic was confused until Scourge leaned in and started licking away the pizza sauce from Sonic's face. Sonic's face became flushed. "Scourge, is this really necessary? There are people watching."
"There is nobody here other than that nerdy cashier, Sonic. Besides, you taste good."
Sonic's muzzle then became redder than the sauce. Sonic moved his face out of the way of Scourge's tongue and said, "Stop with your licking. We have to tame a little pink hedgehog."
Scourge gave Sonic a toothy smile. "Ah, can't we just have a little fun before we die a horrible death?"
"As much as I want to say yes, we can't." Sonic smiled. "But if we do die, we'll at least die together."
"You just enjoy getting tortured by people, don't you?"
"It's one of my many hobbies. Now let's go."
Sonic and Scourge then exited 'Chester's Cheddar' and continued to rub away the pizza sauce on their faces.
Ten minutes later, Sonic and Scourge arrived at Amy's door, just about ready to knock at it. Sonic, without any visible fear, knocked on the wooden door and waited for a response.
After only 15 seconds, Scourge quickly said, "Well, it doesn't seem like she's home. I guess we'll try again tomorrow." Not a second later after he said that, the door opens revealing a pink hedgehog girl. Scourge frowned and Sonic giggled to himself.
"Hi, Amy. You remember Scourge from the beach, don't you?"
"Of course I do. I hope you're ready to apologize to me after being so rude to me at the beach the yesterday."
Scourge rolled his eyes, but Sonic elbowed him. Scourge rubbed his elbow and said nonchalantly, "I'm sorry Amy for being so rude to you at the beach."
Amy didn't really like the way Scourge said that, but she just let it pass and turned her attention back to Sonic. "So, Sonic. You want to come in? I baked some cookies and made some tea."
"Uh… sure, Amy. Besides, I need to talk to you about a few things."
"Okay, go sit on the couch. I'll go prepare the cookies and the tea."
Amy went back into the house and went into the kitchen. Sonic and Scourge entered the house and closed the door behind them. They headed into the living room and got comfortable on the couch.
"So we're going to need to figure out a plan to tell her without her wanting to kill us."
"You mean you never had a plan."
"Sorry, Scourge, but I'm only good at making slick and sarcastic remarks when talking to people I don't like. Actually being sincere isn't exactly something I'm good at."
"Well, neither am I, so this is going to be an absolute disaster."
"Not unless we come up with a plan." Sonic thought about it for a second. "Why don't we just tell her that we're gay and we love each other very much?"
Scourge thought about the cheesy, baseless plan. "That plan might be good enough… to get us all killed!"
"Well, you come up with something, Mr. Hotshot."
"I did. Now all we have to do is wait for Amy to walk out of the kitchen, and I can put my complex plan into effect."
"And what plan is that?"
"I don't have time to explain. Here she comes." Sonic, who was completely confused on what Scourge was going to do, then got pulled in for a kiss.
While Scourge was passionately kissing Sonic, Amy walked in with a tray of tea and cookies. When she saw the two of them locking lips on the couch, she dropped the tray and all of its contents flew across the floor.
When Amy dropped the tray, the two separated and Sonic glared at Scourge. "That's your complex plan?"
"It worked, didn't it?"
"Scourge, get your lips off of my Sonic!" Amy then went over to Scourge and looked as if she was about to strangle him. Before she could, though, Sonic stopped her and tried his best to tame her.
"Amy, please. Calm down."
"Calm down! Scourge clearly knew that I was in love with you and is trying to break us apart."
"Yes! Scourge knew that you were in love with me! But he also knew that I wasn't in love with you." Then, there was a brief silence.
"Amy, I told you at the beach that I didn't like you any more than a friend. That wasn't even 24 hours ago. Did you not hear me or something?"
Amy became frustrated. "Well, of course I heard you, but that still doesn't the change the way I feel about you. I love you, Sonic, and no stupid green hedgehog is going to change that ever!"
"Well…" Sonic was then cut off by Scourge stepping in between the two of them.
Scourge spoke with a smooth, but demanding voice. "Amy, Sonic is allowed to love who he wants. He has told you on several occasions that he hasn't been interested and yet, you continue to be an incessant, little brat. I love Sonic and he loves me back. Why can't you stop being selfish for once and move on with your life?"
With that, Scourge noticed that there was a tear going down the side of Amy's face. That's what he had hoped for. Sonic didn't realize that the complex plan was still happening.
Scourge brought Amy in for a hug and said in a softer tone, "Why can't you move on with your life? There are many amazing people that can fill that love void that Sonic could never do with you. You just have to look."
Scourge let go of Amy and she wiped away a tear from her muzzle. "Maybe you're right. Maybe there are people out there just like Sonic."
Scourge moved out of the way and Amy looked up to Sonic. She was no longer angry when she said, "I think I don't want to see you for a week or two, Sonic. I need some to think."
Sonic frowned. "I understand. Scourge, let's go. Amy needs a bit of alone time."
Scourge grabbed Sonic's hand and kissed him on the forehead. They then said a brief 'goodbye' to Amy and exited her home, leaving her alone with her tears.
Sonic and Scourge moved on with their lives, and each day got only better as time went on. They grew happier as a couple, and it grew to the point where they wanted an eternal bond between each other. Sonic returned to 'Chester's Cheddar' with Scourge six months after they got together and proposed to him. Scourge was breathless, and he didn't even need to say anything for Sonic to know that he meant 'yes'.
Only people that they loved and trusted were asked to attend. Among many people who attended, there was Shadow, Espio, Vector, and Amy. At that point, Sonic and Scourge had not even spoken to them for a few months, because they were two busy being with each other and planning the wedding.
Shadow truly had hidden feelings for Sonic, but had too much respect for Scourge to interfere with their relationship.
Vector finally built up the courage to talk to Espio, and they ended up falling in love with each other. They became a really cute couple actually, and starred in a DeviantArt story called 'Star-Crossed Lovers'. The story is expected to make an appearance on the website on October 29th, 2012.
Amy took a long time to recuperate compared to the others. For one thing, she ended up crying for about a week and a half after Sonic "broke up with her". After that, though, she exhausted all of her tears, and went out of her house to do something. She went to an old restaurant in the market and ordered something to eat. A young, red hedgehog named Lin ended up joining her, because he was wondering why she was sitting all by herself. They hit it off after that, and they've been in love with each other ever since.
Tails got far better after he realized that Sonic and Scourge were a couple. Now that Scourge was around all of the time, Tails treated him as if he were a big brother to him. Scourge was able to encourage him to talk to a girl that he said he liked. Her name was Sunshine, and she was a nice bunny that had a small resemblance to Cream. They had a simple relationship, and Tails re-learned what love was like.
Sonic and Scourge then settled down as an old couple. Even though they were happy, they didn't have any children to share their memories. However, their memories with both of their friends will always stay with them forever.
