New Mobotroplis...three p.m...

It was another dark, dreary and rainy day for one of the most optimistic citizens within the city. Amy Rose sat by the window in her living room quietly listening to the raindrops splashing against her window. Her shoes off and dressed in pink sweat pants and a pale red tee shirt. Her face completely bored, lost in thought thinking of something to do. The city's force field had been opened today to let some rain in and water the things that needed it. So it truly became a rainy day for her as...

Sonic had run away from her again today…

She huffed in frustration as she thought of how to get Sonic to notice her again. You had to take action to get what you wanted, but Amy was sure there was always a line there, there was a line in every aspect of any subject, and the line with people could be anywhere. She knew she might be pushing it with Sonic…she was doing her best not to cross his line…

Amy stared up into the gray dark clouds across the sky remembering the town she used to live in before it was destroyed by Eggman long ago. It was the place where she discovered Sonic, the time where everything in her life became beautiful after hearing about him for the first time. She didn't remember her parents or much of her past as she was separated when she was very young, and she had been living own her own for most her life. She had heard about Sonic through word of mouth, and how he was doing 'herioc' things as people described. Despite that, she became interested as a young naive love struck child.

Even with the loss of her parents and everyone she knew, the loss of her home and her childhood. The image that Sonic projected of righteousness and all that was good. It kept her going…

Amy frowned though as she shifted on the pillows she sat on near the window.

She still loved, fortunes, mystical things, and dabbling in them now as much as she did as when she was younger. And after she heard about him she predicted with her tarot cards that she would have a destined meeting with him on the small satellite known as Little Planet. So she planned for moths in advance, and she traveled there on its annual appearance. She smirked at the memory and felt butterflies in her stomach as she recalled seeing him for the first time...and the look of confusion on his face...

Amy squeezed her eyes to together and squealed with a happy expression reliving the pleasure of the past memory. She looked for him all over on Little Planet, and when she finally ran into him she nearly fainted...

As Amy settled down she kept her smirk thinking of how Sonic recused her from Metal Sonic on Little Planet, and the memory of him running off after her saved her. The first time he ran, and the first time she gave chase. Though she didn't return to her town long as soon it was overrun and destroyed by Eggman. And in seeking shelter she came to the Kingdom of Acorn, and to her surprise, she came and bumped right into Sonic again...

Though she had been stalking...well...tracking him after their first meeting too...

So if anything it saved time, which Amy smirk proudly as she stared out her window. And still to this day...she still found it rather unbelievable that after obsessing for so long...she was now living in the same area as her love...even knew him personally...and was friends with him...

Though she still wanted it to be more than that...

But she never perceived things same again after meeting Sonic...

Amy continued to smirk as some part of her still had Sonic and marriage tied together. She really wanted to marry him when she was young...she still did now...

Nevertheless, she knew and realized as she got older and matured how unrealistic it was what she was asking. It was very silly thing for a child to say, but she had said it. It was a silly notion in general because relationships were not easy, there was always bound to be a disagreement somewhere. It' was why many people fell through so many relationships, walking around with an unrealistic view of another individual. An illusion that once shattered also breaks apart with the individual with such views. She did too...

Though, for the most part, her sentiments had not faltered, if she could have Sonic today she would take him. Besides her immaturity at the time, she built her whole life bettering herself, changing and adapting in a way…for Sonic…

As pathetic as it sounded …yes she had…

She did it for herself as well, but all her time spent as a Freedom Fighter, fighting and proving herself to everyone. There was always a part of it that was for him. So maybe one day he would finally notice her and...you know...

Amy got up and removed herself from the window and began pacing around the assorted colored pink rugs around her living room. All the way from becoming a resident of New Mobotropolis to officially being a Freedom Fighter, it had been dedicated to the feeling he gave her, the fuel that kept her going every day.

So far, she'd been down that's true...even if he didn't lie to her yet…

She never lied to herself about how their relationship had progressed. As far as she was concerned, she had made great strides in becoming closer with Sonic. Right now, she'd become pretty close with him. He would talk about personal things he was going through in his life on occasion. On the same note, he always avoided talking about romance with her. He'd never really had an official girlfriend, though there had been many females that she hated to admit, but had gotten under her skin. She couldn't deny she got jealous when other females just talked to him in a flirty way...Mina..Fiona...Sally...

She didn't even like it when they had to deal with Blaze on occasion when she had trouble in the Sol Dimension. Sonic and she were such good friends...and she joyfully squeezed her knuckles tight when they joked and conversed with one another...

Though for the most part it just seemed that Blaze enjoyed their friendship...she knew Blaze was a loner before they met and even less so after she met Marine...

But Amy dawned a suspicious look as she looked out her window...thinking maybe she liked their friendship too much despite their being no such actual behavior from Blaze that indicated more than friendship...

As far as she knew...

She still was gonna keep an eye on her...

And she didn't know if she was crazy, but she thought on rare occasions, she saw strange behavior from Nicole of all people. She was just a computer...person...machine...well whatever she was...saying she was from the future and junk...

But despite even Nicole's occasional overly friendly moments with Sonic, she wasn't at the least worried about her, because computers couldn't get married and all the things that followed...oh all the things that followed...if she could just follow through...

Lately, he remained as single as he'd always been, and she was trying to make a mark with a new approach. Though she experienced much sorrow at his hands, watching him through the years as she continually chased him, and he never reciprocated, standing alone in a shadow right in front of him, while so many other woman took interest in him as well. Amy frowned as she stopped her aimless wandering and plopped back down next to her window. She tried not to let it build up inside of her but sometimes the frustration was palpable. Of how he ignored her, and often it led to the reflection from the face in her window.

Of sadness…

Of loneliness…

Of the pain behind her eyes…

It was always a question in the back of her mind; she was aware of how much time and energy she had sunk into Sonic. How much of it was her? How much of this was one sided? Compared to the other women throughout his life, she had at most been sprinkled here and there, and she was now feeling that she might not be having much of an impact on his life as she hoped she would. As much as she tried to buffalo her way into Sonic's life, she had only accomplished becoming his guy buddy. She didn't know what to do anymore when he made her sad…

She'd been following him around for so long now it actually felt kind of weird, she felt strange about it sometimes. All her life and nothing had really come of it romantically like she hoped. She guessed it was the same story for any girl or anybody for that matter, to do crazy things when you liked someone. Even so, she was a long way from giving up; she didn't feel he was too far gone as he was single right now. She had never had a chance with him, and she wondered how it would turn out if she did. If things were to falter between them? She still felt she would chase him. She wouldn't let him go…

And there were times she felt she was going nowhere fast with him. So she sighed again as she watched the rain clouds start to break away from each other and a bit of sun shine through. The thing was…this Sonic she knew…

He wasn't real…and she knew...she couldn't make him real….

It was a thought and feeling she grappled with not having an answer for either side yet...

Suddenly, her phone rang and Amy turned her head to the sound across the room. Amy got up from her seat with a curious face and crossed her room to answer the phone. As she picked it up a big smile came across her face, and she twirled a finger playing with her quills "Hey yourself!"

Amy nodded briefly with a curious expression "I'm not busy…sure I'll be over in a minute..."

Amy ceased fiddling with her pink quills as she stood still for a moment blinking her eyes, she paused but giggled a moment later smiling "I'll tell you in person."

Amy nodded once more before she hung the phone up "I'll see you in a minute."

The phone clicked as hit the receiver and Amy stood quietly for a moment with a stoic expression. Then she held her hands up to her chest squeezing them, and she turned around with a tender smile. It was Sonic…he asked her if he wanted to hang out...

It was at least proof she had grown their relationship if not at all. It was times like these when he showed he really did care for her in one way or another. It made her wonder in what ways he cared for her, if this was all really one sided, because sometimes he could show he cared. He'd run away from her in the past…but now he would come back…sometimes anyway…

Amy giggled as she ran upstairs into her room to grab her shoes and change into her clothing, now wondering why she was so sad minutes ago. She knew he still had not seriously considered her romantically, but she figured she just had to be persistent. It couldn't always be one-sided…

Though her sorrow remained colored through rose-tinted eyes…

She always wondered...was what she looking at real...


Oh look an Amy story. This is just a concept for now, I felt compelled to write this because of the title of the story. I thought it was a great concept so I had to write it down. As a matter of fact its a perfect concept. For the type of character Amy is and the whole concept/title of the story fits exactly the type of character Amy is IMO anyway. I just wanted to throw this out here as I don't have time to write another story, I'm swamped as it is. I might come back to this or I might not. I have to finish my other stories first.
