"How long has it been? Itfeelslike forever…why? Whydidn't Isave you? It's all my fault!"
A silhouette in a room with a spiky head shoved everything off the table. A lamp broke making horrible crack sounds as it came into contact with solid cold ground. A wooden picture frame broke along with the lamp. A hand picked it up and wiped away the glass shards. Droplets landed on the unprotected picture onto a certain fox that was smiling in the picture.
In a dark room, a silhouette shoved everything off the nearby table.A lamp broke, making horrible cracking sounds as itmet the ground.A wooden picture frame broke along with the lamp. A hand picked it up and wiped away the glass shards.Droplets landed onto a certain fox that was smiling in the unprotected picture.
He looked up, revealing a face full of tears.It was a blue hedgehog with white gloves, red shoes with a single white stripe, fawn coloured stomach, and muzzle. Sonic the Hedgehog was heartbroken…
6 months ago…
On the outskirts of Robotropolis, an orange fox and a blue hedgehog glared at each other. Sky blue eyes met blood red ones. The fox had tears forming in his eyes as he clenched his fist. The depressed fox shivered and sniffled,and he looked at Sonic with fear. Tails had tears escaping from his eyes. The wind howled and blew through the orange fox's fur and through the blue hedgehog' squills. Sonic smirked and was in his fighting stance,one foot back and two hands clenched together. Tails kept swaying his head with tears flying out of his eyes. The orange fox gritted his teeth and closed his eyes. He dropped the knife that he held in his hand. He couldn't do this, not to Sonic.Not to his guardian. Not to his best friend. Not to his brother…
The orange fox mouthed some words and braced himself. Sonic lunged at his brotherandlaunchedhimintotheair,throwingcountless kicks at him andsendinghim crashingto the ground. Tails slowly stood up,but…
Sonic screamed as the memory played from that scene. He grasped his head tightly and fell to his knees. It was his fault, and that memory kept replaying in his mind. The cyclecontinuedas herememberedhis painful past. The memory still flew through his mind…
The cerulean blue hedgehog grabbed the knife that Tails dropped.He smiled and stabbed his brother in the back, going through his heart as he struggled to stand up.The fox coughed blood as he tried to stand and failed.He collapsed to the ground,and theblue hedgehog was ready to stab him again.Tails lay barely awake as his life ended, surrendering by closing his eyes.
Suddenly, the blue hero let go of the knife. He held his head with his eyes flashing backfromemerald green eyes to crimson redseveraltimes. He kept moaning and swinging himself around.The blue hedgehog screamed with pain and fell to his knees; he opened his red eyes as they slowly faded back to green.Sonicsaw his brother and ran to his side.
"Tails!" Sonic screamed with shock.
He let his brother lay on his arm.Sonic tried to keep Tails awake and alive, not caring if he was sitting in a puddle of blood.
"You'regoing to be alright, buddy! Just hang on, please!" Sonic cried with tears running down his face.
"I'm so sorry, Tails! I didn't mean to!" Sonic shouted, tears dripping on the fox's face.
Tails was breathing heavily,and he smiled with partially opened eyes.His bodywent limp shortly after. The blue hero tried to shake him awake and he kept swaying his head. Memories when they laughed,fooled around, joked, and cried flashed quickly through Sonic's head. Even the great adventure of ending up on Earth with wonderful memories…
"No…no…no! TAILS!" The hedgehog screamed as he lay against his brother's chest.
Crying against his chest, he remembered what he said at the beginning.
"I could never hurt the one that saved me because…he is the greatest brother in the world….."
Sonic could never forgive himself for such a thing. It was impossible to do so… howcouldhe?His innocent brother who would have never done any harm to him, he just took his life away.The one who alwayssmiled,cheeredhim up by taking him for plane rides andmadethe craziest inventions.Sonic envied him for that, but from the very beginning, he knew he was special.No one could see that.They were all blind.InSonic's eyes, he was different anddeservedmore thanbeingbullied.
In return, he killed him.
"Why was I so stupid!? I could have stopped myself earlier! I should have endured the serum of evil from the very beginning!" Sonic said with depression as he knocked his hand against the wall.
He caught the glimpse of something shiny.The hedgehog grabbed the knife, the same knife that was used to kill Tails.His friends asked him to move on but he just pushed them back.It was unforgivable, what he did. Hejust couldn't, it was his fault…
He raised the knife and aimed it for his heart. He was about to thrust the knife into his heart butitwas held by a translucent figure.A fox gently took the knife away from his hands.He looked at Sonic with sky blue eyes and hugged his brother.
"Sonic…please, don't be sorry…it was my plan to stop Snively in the first place! I don't want you to end your life!You have to save more people and friends who care about you. You have to stophimfrom destroying the world. Whathappenedto my brother that was so wonderful and confident unlike any other?" Tails asked with tears streaming down his face.
Sonic hugged him back,slowly realisingTailswasright…but he stillrefusedto forgive himself.
"I can't… I killed you. It was all my fault..." Sonic said with tears still running down his face.
"You wouldn't be evil if it weren't for Snively. You weren't you, Sonic. But you came back and I forgive you…I know that you wouldn't do such a thing. Please, hear me out.Promise me that you will return to the person who was saving the world and his friends. The one who never gave up even if it was all looking bleak. I love you Sonic, and all I want from you is to be happy,"the orange fox said with tears, whichsoonturnedintoa smile.
Sonic managed to smile afterso manylong months. He pulled his little brotherintoa hug.This was the last time that Sonic would ever feel this in his life…this warm embrace from his only brother. Tails smiled in acknowledgement. He was disappearing and he had to return to heaven. The blue hedgehog stood up and closed his eyes to make a prayer.
"I wish that you will be happy too."
