Just an idea which I came up with a while back. Please read and review your comments! :D T.C.

Chapter 1 – How to win a guy's heart?

Technically, she should be feeling happy.

But she wasn't.

And that was the main thing.

Amy Rose slumped to her desk, resting her head on her arms –which were placed on the desk. Her hair flopped to the side, over her eyes, causing her to groan. The light from her bedroom window was flooding into her room – creating a pretty dappled sunlight effect on the carpet.

Tapping her fingers against the wood of her desk and staring at her reflection in the opposite mirror, Amy seethed about the events of today.

Her love, Sonic the hedgehog, had saved her again. That was the good part.

The bad part – which was making the pink hedgehog sulk and sigh – was that he had dashed off without a second glance at her.

And the even worst part? This wasn't the first time that he had done this.

She pouted. It wasn't fair. He didn't notice her in the same way that she noticed him. Why couldn't he see how much she loved him? Even a blind old man could see it!

Amy giggled. When they had been stuck in Chris' world and they had gone on the ship cruise, the old man said that she obviously loved Sonic. He could see it. Why couldn't Sonic!?

That was the problem though, wasn't it?

He could see it.

He just didn't want to.

What was wrong with her? She wasn't ugly. She wasn't young. She wasn't stupid. Granted, she wasn't drop dead gorgeous, she was a year younger than Sonic and she wasn't the same genius that Tails was. But Sonic, surely, didn't expect such a girl to exist? Let alone love him to the same extent which she did.

Because if there was just one thing that Amy was – it was that she was in love with Sonic.

Rouge had once claimed that it was a phase and it would pass. But she was wrong. Amy could feel it. Once, a long time ago, she had doubted herself. She had wondered if she loved Sonic. And because of that, she almost gave up on him.

That was during the week when Sonic didn't return.

But on the morning of his return, she knew. She knew that she loved him...and she knew that she would wait for him. For however long it took for him to come back.

'Til death do us part'

That's what she said.

That's what she believed.

That's what she hoped.

"Stupid Sonic..." She mumbled into her hair, "Didn't even say goodbye,"

It was true. He had carried her out of Eggman's base, bridal style, and placed her down in front of her house. On the journey, Amy had been ecstatic. There she was – in Sonic's arms. Her blood was tingling and her heart was thumping against her chest. She couldn't help but stare at Sonic's emerald eyes and fall deep into the depth of his soul. He had given her a quick smile, but concentrated on running.

Because that's all their relationship ended in.


When they had arrived at Amy's house, the pink female had hoped that he would want to hang out – at the very least, just talk for a moment. But he stared off into the distance, and just as Amy was about to ask him...maybe, on a date...he was gone. Like a word in the wind.

Not looking back.

At first, she was mad. Any girl would be. The guy of your dreams had raced off and not even said goodbye to you. Talk about rude. And heartbreaking.

It didn't help that none of her friends knew exactly how she was feeling. Cream was her most trusted and best friend – but she was a little too young and innocent to understand it all. Sure, there was the possibility that Cream had a crush on Tails – but she wasn't in love with him. Blaze wasn't a very close friend, because of the fact that she was from the future. But Amy always suspected that she liked Silver. And Rouge? She was far too flirty and stubborn to love someone. Amy didn't even know who she had a crush on! She spent an awful lot of time with Knuckles on Angel Island...but five seconds later, she had her eyes on the mysterious and dark, Shadow the hedgehog.

So, whenever Amy was in this mood, she couldn't talk to her friends. Cream would be comforting and Rouge would try to persuade her to move on. But it didn't help. She didn't feel any better and she couldn't move on.

Who could move on from Sonic the hedgehog?

And, who was there to move on to? The rest of the boys weren't like Sonic. Tails and Knuckles were Cream's and Rouge's love interests. There was Shadow...who was similar to Sonic, but his personality was completely different. He hardly spoke and if he did decided to talk – he was always very pessimistic. Vector...no, just no. Charmy was Cream's age and with the maturity of a three-year-old. Espio barely said two words to her. The Babylon Rogue boys were too cocky and annoying. Big was a good friend of hers but...he wasn't exactly 'Mr Right' material. Not for her, anyway. Silver was sweet, and she got on well with him...but he was never around and was...as Blaze would put it...'naive'. And he probably liked Blaze.

She wanted a guy who was heroic. Cocky yet kind. Funny. And gorgeous.

And Blue?

"No!" Amy groaned, rubbing her temples, "I am not going to think about Sonic. I'm not!"

Despite her claims, Sonic always managed to cross her mind. It seemed like everything was linked to Sonic in some form or another. That colour of paint? It was the same shade as Sonic's quills. That field? Not as bright as Sonic's eyes. That aeroplane? It wasn't as fast as Sonic.

The pink hedgehog let out a troubled sigh. She couldn't take her mind off him.

So, moving on wasn't the answer. And the fact that she was one of Sonic's best friends meant that she did spend a lot of time with him. She couldn't just leave for a while to clear her head. He would worry. Underneath all the running away from her, he did care about her and did want to be her friend.

Amy just wanted more than being friend-zoned.

There were times when Amy just focused on her daily life. Banishing thoughts of Sonic from her brain, she would concentrate on hanging out with Cream and Cheese. Or shopping with Rouge. Or practicing her hammer skills. But then, Sonic would come and get her hopes up by flirting with her...only to back away when her romantic feelings flared up again.

And it seriously sucked.

"Well..." Amy frowned, "It's going to be different this time. I'm going to make Sonic see that even if he doesn't love me back – he's mad not to!"

How she was going to do that, however...

"There must be something I'm missing..." She stood up from her chair and paced the room, thinking, "Something that will make me more of a love interest to Sonikku..."

Nope. Nothing.

She couldn't think of anything.

What did other people her age do? How did they win their guys/girls?

Well, the only way to find out that...was to ask them.




"I'll ask the people closest to Sonic!" Amy grinned, deviously, "They know Sonic better than anyone! And, they've gotta have at least one idea which will work,"

There were ten of them. Cream, Rouge, Tails, Knuckles, Shadow, Silver, Blaze, Vector, Espio and Charmy. At least one of them would have an idea which would be worth a shot.

Her plans hadn't worked. So, maybe it was time to try someone else's tactic.

But who should she go to first?

Someone who knew a lot about guys.

Someone who knew a lot about twisting men around their little finger.

Someone like...

"Got it!" Amy raced out of the room, heading towards the door of her flat. She swiped her purse from the kitchen counter and pulled on her boots. The house wasn't far – so a quick walk would lead her to the perfect plan to win Sonic's heart.

"This can only end in success," Amy whispered, stepping out of the door and locking it, "This will work. I can feel it,"

And Amy never dismissed her feelings.


Especially when they involved Sonic the hedgehog.
