Krissie: some cuteness is planned and Shadow is happy from chocolate cake. Also I published an ebook the other day! Emi the Deity book 2 is now out! Go check it out if you want to see my original work.
Yippe! I won a claw machine! ^.^
Amy parked her car in front of the house. Though calling it a house was a bit odd to her. It was more like a mansion. The place was huge. No other home was around it. The yard was nice and trimmed with trees of a forest close by.
She smiled as she walked up the stairs. It amused her how Shadow could bring all the finer things in life to such a secluded place. She briefly wondered if he had this home built for him as she knocked. The door was metal and cold under her touch.
It took a few minutes before the door opened.
Despite it being a little past 10 in the morning, Shadow was sweaty from a workout. His quills were a mess and he looked tired. He stared down at Amy. The pink hedgehog was sure he was eyeing the cake in her hands.
Shadow had been in the midst of working out when he heard someone knocking. He knew it wasn't Rouge. The bat knocked three times before just waltzing into the home. He grabbed his water bottle and drank hungrily as he opened the door. He was greeted to Amy. She was holding a cake container in her hand. Her pink quills were slightly curled. He recognized the eyeshadow and bright pink lip gloss on her lips. It added to her face and drew Shadow towards it without being too much. His red eyes shifted over her clothes. The sleeves of her dress wrapped around her shoulders. The skirt drapped around her legs but stopped a few inches above her knees. Amy had switched her boots for a pair of wedge heels. A chocker around her neck had a piece dangling down. The piece rested right above the top of her cleavage. Cleavage that was far to exposed.
Shadow instantly wanted to push whoever the blind date was for the day off a cliff. Whoever the girls had gotten did not deserve to take her out.
"Good morning! " Amy held up the cake. "We had a lot of leftovers last night. I thought you might like some of it."
Shadow smiled as he took the cake. "Is this more chocolate cake?"
Amy nodded. "With strawberries! I'm still working on the recipe, so let me know what you think of it."
Shadow nodded as he went to put the cake in the house. He half expected the pink hedgehog to follow, but was confused to not see her behind him. He walked to the porch and found Amy bent over in her car.
"There's more food?" His eyes stared at the edge of the skirt. It was coming up a lot in the back. Though not as much as the red dress she wore when they first met.
"Yeah. There were lots of left overs." Amy stated as she stood up with several containers holding food.
"Allow me," Shadow took several of the containers from her. The two walked into the house and began putting the items away.
Amy was still amazed at how large the kitchen was. It was larger then her living room at home.
"So what are your plans today Rose?" Shadow asked. He didn't often make small talk, but he grew too curious. Amy had been humming a song he didn't recongize as she organized the food in the fridge.
"After I'm done here, I have nothing else planned for today." Amy responded as she began reading the expiration dates on containers in the fridge.
"Dressed like that?" Shadow arched a brow at her.
"Honey wanted me to try on an outfit for today to test if it's comfortable and eye catching. Does it look bad?" Amy looked up at Shadow with large emerald eyes.
Shadow looked her up and down again, making it obvious that he was. "Too enticing," he mumbled so low that Amy could barely hear. He looked her in the eye and smiled, "You look like you're going on a date."
Amy smiled at that. "At least I don't look bad."
"Would Honey ever make you look bad?" Shadow questioned.
"No," Amy shook her head. "She's very proud of her work." Amy looked around and found all the food put away. "So what are your plans for today?"
Shadow shrugged. "I have the day off. I haven't really made plans yet though."
Amy nodded. Shadow probably just wanted to spend the day in quiet. He always said he never got enough of it. "So working out is how you relax?" Sje teased, "Do you even need to? You always seem in top shape to me."
Shadow shook his head. "That's true, but I can't move past my limits if I don't push them."
Amy hummed for a moment. "So have you been able to do that?"
Shadow looked at her and took note of the height difference between them. He wasn't much taller then her. Sonic had already grown taller then him. Even Tails was taller now. "I'm becoming short compared to the rest of you."
Amy clenched her hands together. She could see the saddness in Shadow's eyes. The fact that he was immortal bothered him because he had to watch friends grow old. "You've gotten a little taller," Amy spoke softly.
"How so Rose?" Shadow tapped his fingers on the counter.
"Well you used to be 3'3" when we first met right?" Amy beamed. She could tell that Shadow had grown at least 3 inches since then. Even though Shadow probably didnt notice.
"I am still the small height Rose." Shadow stated.
Amy shook her head. "No you're not. Let's get a ruler measure you. You'll see that I'm right."
"And what do I get if I'm still 3 foot 3?" Shadow mused.
"What would you like?" Amy replied as she began looking around the mansion for a tape measure.
Shadow thought for a moment. "A favor that I can cash in any time. One you can't refuse so long as it isn't illegal."
Amy chuckled. "Alright. I get the same if I'm right." She frowned as she exited the laundry room. "Where is the tape measure?"
Shadow zipped away and was back in a second, a tape measure in hand. It was yellow and black.
Shadow stood up straight against the wall as Amy pulled out some of the metallic ruler.
Amy frowned, "Take off your shoes."
"Why?" Shadow questioned.
"Because they add more height and will fudge the results."
Shadow nodded as he took off the shoes. He placed them neatly beside himself as he stood straight.
Amy measured him and beamed. "Well, you're not 3'3" anymore." She remarked.
Shadow placed his hand on the measure at the base of his head. "May I see?"
"Of course," Amy beamed as Shadow brought the final result to his face.
3 foot 6 and a half inches he read.
"See! You've gotten taller!" Amy jumped up and down with joy.
"When did this happen?" Shadow muttered.
"Over time like all wonderful things." Amy beamed.
Shadow looked at her and smirked. He knew wonderful things came with time. Sunsets, blooming flowers, trees growing, peace and quiet. Shadow clicked the button on the tape measure and the metallic ruller rushed into the case with a quick sshik sound. He took a few breathes as he stared at the ruler.
"Shadow?" Amy walked up to him when he didn't seem to rejoice like her. She squealed when she suddenly found herself lifted into the air. It rushed around her quickly as she was spun. She could feel Shadow's hands on her waist holding her up. She laughed at the sudden burst of energy.
She quickly became dizzy. She firmly placed her hands around Shadow's neck in an attempt to ground herself.
Shadow slowed to a stop and collapsed on the ground. The two took heavy breathes as they still. Spinning in a circle would make anyone dizzy. Amy slowly looked around the room. Their spinning had caused a mini tornado it seemed as several items were laying on the floor. Luckily nothing appeared to be broken.
She attempted to sit up but Shadow gently pushed her back down. Amy just nuzzled into his chest fur. It was soft and cozzy there. She could hear his heart beat. It was beating rapidly, but slowly down.
Shadow laid his chin on her head and closed his eyes. He had grown taller. That ment he was aging. He was just aging very slowly. The discovery over joyed him. He wouldn't have to watch his friends die and leave forever. It was possible he could die of old age at least. It would take 4 to 5 times as long, but it would mean eventually he would die. He could see everyone in the afterlife. Maria, professor, and everyone else who would pass away long before him. Maria and Amy would both get along so well. Laughing and giggling at the simplest forms of life like grass growing because to them it would simply be wonderful.
Shadow hugged Amy tighter to him. He could feel his eyes watering. He blinked it away so the pink hedgehog wouldn't notice. "Do you want to help me plant a garden today Rose?" A garden sounded nice to him. He couldn't put his finger on why, but it did.
"Sure," Amy murmured half awake.
"Ok you, I'm not a pillow." He sat up and brought her up with him.
"But you're so warm," Amy whined as she wiped sleep from her eyes.
Shadow shook his head as he helped Amy stand.
(I just finished reading Moving On & now I'm back here.)
"Come on, we have to go buy plants," Shadow rolled his eyes.
"I wanna see the back yard first. That way we can figure out what plants will grow well."
The back yard was large and spacious. There was a small set of lawn chairs on the back porch. Amy could just see Rouge lounging in one of them. Amy took note of small second house in the back.
"What's with the second house?" It looked liked a small cabin.
"Oh that? That's the pool. It's enclosed, but you can see through the roof." Shadow stated.
"You sure like the finer things," Amy breathed.
"I work hard enough for it." Shadow stated. The phone began ringing and he left Amy outside to answer it.
Amy sat on the grass and ran her fingers through it. She could see several different color flowers decorating the garden. She wondered if Shadow wanted to plant vegetables too. It took a few minutes before Shadow returned.
"We'll have to plant the garden later Rose," Shadow sighed.
"What is it?" Amy stood up and walked back to the porch. Shadow was frowning. His face screamed work mode.
"The commander has called me in. The mission should be quick. I should be home by dinner tonight."
Amy nodded, "Well if you want, I can get the garden started for you."
"Are you that bored today?" Shadow mused.
"But i can already see some small flower beds," Amy smiled. "I think you'll like it."
Shadow nodded. "I'll leave the door unlocked. You can buy the flowers and I can plant them when I'm off during the day."
Amy beamed. "I'll be sure to help!"
Shadow nodded. He teleported to work as Amy drove to the store.
Kittens are fluffy
