KRISSIE: now we begin chapter 3.
Rouge walked into work and stopped by Thomas' desk. "So how was your night?"
"It was great. That barista really knew how to move her hips!" Thomas beamed.
"So that's why you stood up Amy?" Rouge arched a brow at the cat.
"She doesn't sound like the kind to put out," Thomas shrugged. "I told Shadow to have you call Derek. Derek is good at teaching clueless girls how to kiss."
Rouge arched an eyebrow at Thomas. "You didn't send Shadow to take your place for a socialization exercise?"
Thomas paused as he looked at the bat. "No." He stood up and began scanning the office for the hedgehog. "Shadow still can't hang out with people right, let alone date. Did he take her on a date?"
Rouge nodded, "He said you told him to do it as a socialization exercise and he agreed so you would shut up about it for a while."
"I never said that," the two made their way around the office. They finally found the famous hedgehog in the shooting ranch practicing his aim.
"How upset was she after having to go on a date with Mr. Emo?" Thomas mused as he jabbed his thumb at Shadow.
"She came back home giggling," Rouge proudly stated. "Shadow was a gentleman."
Thomas arched a brow. "Ok. How hot was this girl that Shadow lied to replace me and how is he able to make a girl giggle?"
Rouge glared at the first part. "1. Amy was stunning last night. She's a natural beauty anyway." Rouge shrugged. "And 2. Shadow and Amy have always gotten along."
Thomas shook his head. Then an idea occured to him. He might as well tease Shadow. There was a small pocket of silence as thw soldiers reloaded the guns for the next practice round.
"Hey Shadow, how did your date go last night?" Thomas asked in a yell into the range.
Everyone froze as they turned to look at Shadow. The word date and Shadow didn't sound right. So they wondered if the hedgehog had killed someone last night and if he was taking out left over blood lust on the target.
Shadow stayed silent as he thought about his reponse. Should he put Thomas through the ringer now? Nah, there were mainly male agents around right now. It would be best to do it in front of the female agents who would continue putting him through the ringer for a little while longer.
Shadow looked up at Thomas. "It went well," he called back at the same volume Thomas called put in. "We have a 2nd date scheduled for tomorrow. So try not to mess anything up so bad that I have to spend my weekend here fixing it." He turned back to the target and aimed his gun and began firing at the targets
Thomas nodded. "Good luck then!" He turned on his heel and left with Rouge closely behind him.
Shadow didn't mind that people were whispering about him behind his back. He was used to that. It was a constant. But he was suddenly aware that the discussion around him was different. Instead of being about how dangerous he was and if he was suddenly going to turn on everyone amd take over the world or feed them to the black arms, the topics were different. In a way Shadow wasn't sure how to feel about it.
Shadow has a date? For real?
With who? Is it a girl or a guy? What? no one knows what he likes you know. He could be into guys for all we know.
Nah, I heard it's a chick.
Is she all doom and gloom like him? Does she work in the military?
We would know who it was if she did.
I doubt Shadow actually likes her. He's probably going on a few dates so he can fuck her and leave.
Who knew Shadow needed to get his rocks off too? I always kind of thought Gereald made him sterile so he wouldn't have those urges. A better way to get him to stay focused, you know.
I just hope this girl isn't expecting more then a quick fuck from him.
Well, if he does get his rocks off, maybe he'll come into work with a bettet mood.
Yeah, and maybe he'll smile.
Please he could fuck all day and night and not smile once. Look at him.
Shadow rolled his eyes as he finished up his paperwork. Why was everyone so insterested in his sex life all of a sudden? Normally when it came to things like that it was rumors about Rouge which were mostly false. And then a stray rumor about other co-workers. Shadow was sure most of those were false too.
The commander walked into the office and everyone suddenly hushed and busied themselves with work. He walked up to Shadow and Shadow naturally saluted out og habit. The commander waved his hand indicating he needent bother.
"Miss Amy Rose just came by," the commander stated with a neutral expeession. "She wanted to make sure you didn't have work tomorrow. From my understanding, you two have an outing planned?"
Shadow nodded, "Yes. We do have plans tomorrow. Is there anything I need to do tomorrow for GUN sir?"
The commander shook his head. "Just finish your paperwork and you're free to go. Also, if it's not too much trouble why don't you walk Miss Rose home. It's rather dark and from my understanding she gets lost easily."
Shadow smiled as he nodded. "Of course commander."
The commander nodded as he left to go handle other commander like things.
Shadow busied himself with the paperwork. He knew Rose wouldn't want to stay in the guest waiting area for long. He was sure she would be somewhere else in the building by the time he finished the paperwork.
The murmur of rumors slowly started up again. Shadow didn't comment on them, but he wish they would leave Rose out of it.
His date is with Amy Rose?
Isn't that the girl with the hammer? The Sonic fan girl?
Well she did grow out of that. But isn't she a bit... too young for Shadow?
She is grown. Maybe Shadow just likes younger girls. It's their personalities I'm worried about. They're total opposites!
But isn't the saying opposites attract?
Yeah that may be true, but I don't think it'll work for them. If anything they'll have a bad break up and Amy is such a fierce person she'll try to get Shadow with her hammer and he'll beat her with it for it.
Shadow clenched his teeth. There had been several instances were Rose had aimed her hammer and he had taken it and hit her with it. He felt slightly bad for it, but for the mission objective, he didn't have time to fight her.
You'll never know though, maybe dating Amy will make Shadow nicer.
Ha! The day he smiles and it's not a smirk about I'm better then you, then I'll wear a kilt and do a dance in the middle of Station Squares train station!
Shadow bit his tongue. The thought of seeing his coworker in a kilt dancing was very amusing. He recongized the deep voice too. He was sure it Steve. The large heavy set human was a good guy. He was often called a teddy bear. Shadow respected his hand to hand combat and hunting skills.
Shadow took a deep breath as he finished the last of the paperwork and filed it away. He needed to leave before he burst into laughter and everyone would think he finally snapped and was about to go on a murderous rampage. He didn't want to explain that he was eavesdropping on office gossip like some school girl.

KRISSIE: now we begin chapter 3.
Friday, July 28, 2017
Shadow frowned at the wall as he strummed his fingers on the table. "Where are you Rose?" Came the question he had repeated a few times now.
"Uh..." the voice seemed to struggle to answer. "I really don't want you two to fight."
"I will not start a fight, but I will handle this so you're not feeling awkward. Where are you?"
Amy sighed as she rattled off the name of the shopping center.
Shadow chaos controlled and was there in a flash. He ran along the roofs until he spotted the familiar pink. He frowned at Sonic who seemed to be pestering her. He noticed a few others standing around.
He jumped down amd began walking towards them. "Rose!" Shadow called as he walked up to them.
Amy beamed a huge smile, relieved that she didn't have to reject Sonic on her own. "Hi Shadow!" She ran up to hug him. "How was work?"
Shadow nodded, "It was good." He turned his attention to the freedom fighters he could see. Sonic, Sally, Antoine, and Bunnie. He was almost surprised that Tails wasn't there. Sonic seemed completely shocked to see Amy huge the ebony hedgehog. The others just seemed slightly confused.
Shadow was surprised. It had been a few years since Amy had moved to Mercia and slowly had bare minimal contact with them. They saw Shadow whenever they had to work with GUN. "What is going on?" Shadow asked with his usual monotone.
"Eggman has some new bot running around," Sonic stated.
"Since it is close to Mercia, we thought we would invite Amy to join us." Sally stated.
"Just like old times," Sonic smiled.
"That can not be done at this time. Rose has an appointment today." Shadow stated firmly.
"Amy told us that," Bunnie nodded.
"But we could really use her help," Antoine stated, "And a simple check up can be rescheduled."
Shadow shook his head, "No."
"Why not?" Sonic crossed his arms and glared at Shadow. "You're not the boss around here Shadow."
"That is true, but sending a woman with child onto the battlefield is out of the question." Shadow crossed his arms as he glared at the blue blur.
Amy turned red as she avoided eye contact.
"With child?" Sonic tilted his head as the news slowly processed.
The news quickly dawned on the other. Antoine smiled as he patted the pink hedgehog on the shoulder. "Congratulations ma ami," his voice was full of warmth.
"Why didn't you just tell us that from the beginning?" Sally asked.
"More like, why didn't you call with the news, suga?" Bunnie pulled Amy into a hug.
Amy gave a shy smile. "I'm not that far along, so I was waiting a bit."
"Well, we should throw you a party when we get back," Sally suggested.
"Does a baby shower sound alright to you Amy?" Antoine asked, "I can make some macarons for you. Or anything you want."
Amy smiled. She liked tha idea.
"Wait. Wait, wait, wait." Sonic waved his hand in the air as he held his head with the other one. "You're pregnant?"
"You're going to have a baby?" Sonic struggled to accept the news.
"Did I miss the invite to your wedding?" Sonic waved his hands around.
Amy shook her head. "No, I'm not married."
"Then who's the dad? Is he going to help you with the kid? Cause if not, I need to met the punk to talk to him."
Amy sucked in her bottom lip as she glanced up at Shadow.
Shadow seemed amused by Sonic. "I haven't been called a punk in years. Why don't we discuss your concerns on our way to handle Eggman. Rose, do you need me to take you to the doctor?" Shadow turned to Amy as Sonic's jaw laid on the floor.
Amy shook her head. "You guys go and stop Egghead. I'll see you later." Amy gave a soft bow before leaving the group.

I am just sitting still
So muxh to do.
So little time.
I have plans
I have visions
I'm just in pain
Zapped of everything.
I have nothing to distract
But no energy is here
Depression is a scary thing
I'm frightened and struggling.
Just a step
One tiny step
I want to succeed
I want to fly.
Make a vision come alive
