This Heart

Me: Hi Everybody! I have been really hesitant to put this story on here, but my friend convinced me to, so I did.

Shadow: It's about goddamn time!

Me: But Shadow darling! I only do this because I love you!

Sonic: Get your hands off my boyfriend!

Me: While we're here, I do not own any of the Sonic Team characters no matter how many Christmases and shooting stars I have wished to won that sexy black hedgehog… *Stares darkly at Shadow*

Anyways, enjoy!

Chapter 1: Sonic's Heart

Sonic POV

"Ughh, Shadow!"

The words leaked from my mouth in utter pleasure of his tongue exploring my mouth.

Shadow drove his hands around my back, his fingers tracing from my shoulder blades, right down to my tail. His touch sent shivers right through me. Our bodies were so close together that I could feel his heart beat against my own.

Shadow thrashed me down onto the bed, his hands either side of my head. His scarlet orbs began to bore right through me, as if he was staring right into my soul. It was truly mesmerising, the way his eyes narrowed with that lusty grin place upon his lips.

"Sh-Shad-Ah! Ugh!" I cried felling his fingers around my groin.

"Shadow!"

A sharp pain rang through my head. The steaming hot image quickly faded, my lust being replaced with a sudden sting on my forehead.

I pried my eyes open to find myself in the passenger seat of the X Tornado.

My head retaliated from its resting place on flank of the plane. I gathered the pieces together and realised I'd been tossing and turning in my sleep and must of hit my head on the right-side frame.

"Sonic are you alright?"

Tails voice came from behind me; he sounded concerned.

I rotated my torso to face the yellow kitsune behind me.

Tails shot me a quizzical look and I felt the heat rise on my cheeks. I hoped that my dream wasn't read by the younger and that he was looking at me like for a different reason.

"Yeah I'm fine." I muttered, jumping out of the ships seat.

I honestly wanted to believe that was true.

However I think my brain (and hormones) just decided they hate me.

I had found myself falling for Shadow.

The cold-hearted, pessimistic ebony hedgehog who had hated me from the minute he had laid his gorgeous scarlet eyes on me.

I couldn't help but feel the exact opposite. I longed for the dark hedgehog, to be wrapped up in his arms and stay there for all of eternity.

"Sonic? Sonic!" I found Tails waving his paw in front of my face.

"Hm?" I said looking down at him.

"Are you feeling alright?" He asked, putting his hand on my cheek. "Your sorta hot, go inside and la down."

I obeyed the younger fox's instructions and walked inside.

-xXx-

I ka-plunked down onto the couch in the living room and began flicking through channels on the T.V.

Tails stood at the end of the sofa and stared at me continuously. I decided not to react and just brush it off, but it soon got annoying.

"Yes?" I finally said raising a non-existent eyebrow.

"Sonic you've been acting really strange lately. What's going on?" The young fox said, his baby blue orbs glued to me.

"Nothing's going on Tails, I'm fine." I replied jumping off the couch and heading for the kitchen.

"You use to tell me everything." He whispered.

I froze in my tracks. "I still do buddy." I lied turning around to face the younger.

"No you don't." His voice quivered and his arms shook. "You've been acting so off key lately." He looked at my face, tears welling in his eyes. "Is it something I did? What did I do wrong? Please tell me Sonic I want to know!" The kitsune cried his eyes wet from tears.

I panicked. I never expected him to react like this. I got down on my knees and met eyes with the smaller. "Calm down Tails, don't cry! It was nothing you did." I said caressing his arm.

"Then what is it!" He demanded, his voice still quivering from tears. "And I want the truth. No 'it's nothing' lies, because it's defiantly something."

I sighed heavily. "Look, it's something I don't want you worrying about, it's too complicated." I said standing up.

"I'm 20 times smarter for someone my age; I don't think complication is a problem." The younger growled, stomping his foot on the ground.

"It's not that kind of complicated. It's more emotions."

His eyes narrowed. "Sonic, I want to know what's wrong. I know I'm not a psychiatrist, but I still can help."

I looked down at the smaller. "It's something I have to deal with myself." I turned on my heal and began to head for the door.

"Where are you going?" The yellow kitsune said in a motherly manner.

"For a walk."

"Sonic! Get Back Here!"

But I had already slammed the door behind me.

-xXx-

I needed to clear my head. I hadn't been sleeping well on account of the re-occurring dreams of Shadow that had been flooding my head.

I never thought I'd fall for Shadow.

For a boy, yes. I found out that I liked guys too long while back, but Shadow?

I still remember when I hated his guts.

But no-one can deny, even if you prefer females, that he is one sexy hedgehog.

"Sonikku~"

Faintly in the distance I could hear the pink hedgehog shout. At first, I thought it was my insomnia playing scary tricks on me, but I guess a bone-crushing hug answered my question.

"Sonikku, what are you doing out at this late hour?" Amy cooed, nuzzling her head into my chest.

"I could ask you the same question Amy." I replied bluntly pushing her off me.

"Actually I was coming over to check on you and Tails." She said swing her hands back and forth. "How is the little foxy anyways?" She asked cocking her head.

"He's okay, I suppose." I said rubbing the back of my head.

"Oh I made you a pie!" She smiled, digging around in a peach beach bag she had with her. She pulled out a sweet-smelling pastry, covered in foil.

"As tempting as that sounds Amy, I can't eat it right now. You should go give it to Tails, he needs it."

Her jade eyes narrowed and a confused look came across her face. "Why would Tails need it?"

Oh Chaos. "You know, he's just been working hard and stuff…" It wasn't a complete lie.

Her perplexed expression turned into one of angry caution. "Where are you going?"

"Nowhere in particular. I'm just on a walk." I said, pulling a phony smile.

She scanned my face for any signs of a lie. "Alright." She finally said. "I'll trust you."

The short-quilled lent back and crossed her arms. "But if I see you with any girl other than me or Cream, I will not hesitate to flatten the both of you into pancakes."

The juvenile pink hedgehog looked at me with bothered attentiveness once again before walking down the road that wasn't too far from mine and Tails house.

Well, she took that rather well considering that I expected her to throw the pie in my face due to jumped conclusions.

I turned around and continued on my walk.

I was happy with Amy as a friend, but have considered her as a love-interest. Now that I think of it, I don't recall ever really being that into any girl, which was pushing the whole 'Gay for the guy who tried to kill me' thing.

I sighed and followed the dirt pathway through a park.

I didn't look up from the dust I was kicking up with every step, running my problems through my head one after the other.

Tails is at home probably yelling/crying and cursing me for not telling him what's wrong.

Amy's not going to get off my back now that she's under the impression that I'm secretly dating a girl.

I think I'm in love with a guy who hates my guts.

Yup, my life is just peachy.

Thud.

I spat the dirt from my mouth.

What the hell did I just trip over?

I tried to lift my body from the painful rocks and twigs stabbing my stomach. I managed to get to my knees but reached out for assistance in getting up the rest of the way.

Silky soft fur rubbed beneath my fingers.

"Nice of you to drop in faker."

I looked up immediately to see Shadow's gorgeous blood-red orbs gazing down no me, a half smile on his lips.

"Shadow I-"I stumbled in getting to my feet, feeling all the heat rush to my face.

"You what?" Shadow asked rather confused by my actions.

"Oh, um, I, Sorry for, um."

"Speak up, who are you talking to, me or the dirt?" Shadows voice sounded annoyed, but I could hear a hint of amusement in his tone.

"Sorry for falling, I guess…" I mumbled dusting myself off, avoiding the darker one's gaze.

Shadow paused a bit before asking, "Why are you acting so weird?" His scarlet eyes narrowing.

"I could say the same for you Shadow." I retorted, folding my arms over my chest.

Shadow let out an amused snort. "I'm not the one tripping over my own feet then blushing like a tomato about it."

If possible I turned even redder. "What are you doing here?" I said giving up the old topic.

The black hedgehog before me ran a hand over his shoulder and looked to the star-lit sky above our heads. "I enjoy taking a stroll at twilight." He began. "The sky is so, so-"

I couldn't help but smirk.

"Beautiful?" I interjected.

He glared back at me with an annoyed look upon his dark features. "I wasn't going to say beautiful so don't interrupt me."

"Oh yeah, than what were you going to say?" I smirked.

The look on Shadow's face softened as he returned to looking at the sky.

"Lovely,"

"Lovely?"

"Lovely."

I looked to the sky with him for a few peaceful minutes.

"So Faker, why are you here?" Shadow said softly, switching his gaze to me.

"Hm?' I hummed looking over to him with my head cocked.

"Why are you out on a night like this one?" He repeated, casually crossing his arms over his fluffy chest.

I sighed heavily and looked to the ground, rubbing my neck nervously. "I got into a fight with Tails."

Shadow raised an eye ridge. "You got into a fight with Tails? What about?"

The fact that I love you and won't tell him.

I wanted to say. But I couldn't.

"Oh, he thinks there's something wrong with me and got angry because I won't tell him what." I replied rubbing my hand over my eye.

"Is there something wrong with you?" He asked curiously.

"No!" I retorted.

"Are you sure?" He said, eyes burning right through my skull.

I eyed him before throwing my arms over my head. "I don't know….Maybe."

Shadow continued to stare with a vaguely confused look.

C'mon Sonic! Tell him! Tell him now!

"I think I like-"

Zizt.

What?

Zizt. Zizt.

A soft blue light on Shadow's wrist was flashing on and off.

He raised it to about thirty centimetres away from his face and clicked a button on the side.

"Shadow, we need you back at headquarters ASAP." A female voice said.

Shadow simply grunted in agreement before the light switched off.

"Not that I don't love talking to you, Sonic." Shadow said sarcastically. "But they need me back at G.U.N."

With that said, the black blur sped off to whatever ill-advised mission G.U.N wanted to send him on next.

Well so much for that.

I sighed heavily and ran back home where Tails and Amy awaited me.

Me: SO…How was it?

Shadow: It's alright, Got Sonic into admitting love a bit early.

Me: I'm sorry that ending practically wrote itself.

Sonic: What's happening at my place?

Me: Ah that, my azure friend, you'll have to wait till chapter 3 because next up is Shadow's mission!
