Do you want one?
He was pretty sure what he was doing was probably illegal. Well it wasn't. He had checked the court books. It wasn't illegal, but almost felt like it. His plan was an iffy one. He had been reading more books to prepare for it to. This plan would have consequences. He was pretty sure they would be bad, but he was trying to make it come out good.
All he really had to do was trick Amy Rose. Keep her from finding out until it was too late.
Shadow gulped as the phone in his pocket vibrated. He softly answered with Hello.
"Hello, is Mr. Shadow Hedgehog available?" A male asked.
"This is he," Shadow answered as he took a deep breath and walked outside of the library. He quickly made his way to a back alley where no one could see or hear him.
The doctor spoke the whole time and Shadow kept quiet until the end. "Do you have any questions Shadow?"
"No," Shadow responded, "Thank you for the call." He hung up the phone and just stared at it for a few minutes. He had a few minutes before he had to be at Amy's for dinner. He took in a deep breath before Chaos controlling to her house.
Amy smiled as she opened the door for Shadow. "Hey, you're here early," she giggled.
Shadow shrugged as he walked in. He took note of the small child in Amy's home. It was Antoine and Bunnie's boy Jacque. "Babysitting?" He nodded at the toddler.
"Yeah, they had to take Belle to the dentist and Jacque didn't want to go with. They should be here to get him in a few. What would you like for dinner?" She asked as she patted the toddler on the shoulder.
Jacque stared at Shadow for a long moment before turning back to his coloring book.
"I'm good with anything right now." Shadow told his girlfriend.
Amy tilted her head and gave a little pout. "What's bothering you?"
"Nothing," Shadow lied.
"Shadow," Amy lead him into the kitchen and had him sit down. "I know you better then that. So tell me what's bugging you so I can help."
Shadow hummed in thought and then looked into the living room where Jacque was. "Do you want one," he looked at the table fur any marks.
"One what?" Amy asked.
Shadow pointed into the living room.
"I think adding another table will clog the living room too much." Amy stated.
Shadow shook his head. "Not a table Rose," he sighed, "Do you want a..." He paused as he searched for the right word. A part of him wanted to say offspring, but he was sure Rose would only laugh it off as a joke. "A baby," he pointed at Jacque to clarify.
Amy became quite as she looked at Jacque from the kitchen. Then she turned to Shadow. "Shadow, aren't Gerald and Maurice our babies?"
"They're Chao." Shadow argued. "They're different. I'm asking if you want a child. An actual child, like the others have offsprings." He waved his hand towards Jacque.
Amy nodded as she sounded an oh. She could see that Shadow felt awkward bringing up this topic. It was true that she had been wanting a child. She always dreamed of having kids as a kid. But Amy wasn't so sure now. She had been in a happy relationship with Shadow for a few years now. She had been so certain that Shadow would never want kids. "How long have you been thinking about this?" She was curious. He never sprung things on he without thinking about it first.
"About a year and a half," Shadow answered as he clasped his hands on the table.
Amy's eyes widen. "Why?"
"You want one Rose," he stated as he wanted across the table and held her hand. "It's been obvious to me for a few years now. I can really see it when you're taking care of the others' offspring. So I've been doing research."
"Research?" Amy seem to laugh. That was so like Shadow.
"Yes." Shadow nodded seriously. "I went to a clinic and I'm not sterile. So it is possible for us. I've thought of plans too, but the main issue was that you take birth control and the percentage of it failing is very slim."
"Wait, wait, wait," Amy waved her hand. "Are you implying that you were going to get me pregnant on purpose and pretend it to be an accident? Because that's what I'm getting."
"Yes," Shadow nodded.
Amy sighed. "And what you have done if I decided to get an abortion without telling you?"
"Like you can hide a secret from me," Shadow smirked, "Plus I would just stalk you just in case." He shrugged like it was nothing.
"Evil..." She said with a small pout, but a smile quickly took it's place. "Did you even think about the consequences of being a parent?"
"That's mainly what I've been researching," Shadow stated. "There is no set way to guarantee anything, but I'm willing to try my best."
Amy hummed in thought. "I don't see any problem in trying," she smiled.
Shadow jumped up and kissed her. "We can start tonight after Antoine collects his offspring."
Amy giggled. "Aren't you a bit too excited?"
"Well it is the fun part," Shadow grinned as he hugged her. "Sadly you have to do the rest of the work." He hugged her tight as she rubbed her stomach.
"Well, you'll have to wait for my birth control to loose effect. I did take it this morning." Amy informed him.
"I know, but you won't be taking it after today, so there is a chance to get a baby tonight." Shadow stated logically.
Amy smiled. She almost hoped Antoine and Bunnie would arrive soon.
"How was he?" Bunnie asked as she walked into Amy's house.
"He was good. He's currently making a fort with Shadow in the backyard.
"Shadow?" Antoine repeated with wonder. He walked to the backyard as he held Belle in his arms.
"How was the dentist?" Amy asked.
"She whined when the doctor pulled out her tooth and has been clinging to Suga-Twan ever sense." Bunnie laughed.
Antoine came back into the house with Jacque holding his hand. "We're all ready to go," he stated. "Say goodbye to Aunt Amy kids."
Belle only waved one hand. Jacque beamed as he hugged Amy's leg. "Bye Amy! Good luck!" He held his father's hand again.
Amy said goodbye as the family left.
In the car, Bunnie turned to face her son from the front seat. "How was your visit with Aunt Amy?"
"It was good. We colored in coloring books and ate sandwiches. Shadow helped me build a fort. Oh, and they're going to have a baby!"
Antoine instantly stopped the car. "What?" The parents said in unison.
"Are you sure about that son?" Antoine asked as he looked at his son through the rear view mirror.
"Yep," Jacque nodded. "Shadow asked her if she wanted a baby. They're going to try to get one tonight. Shadow says that's the fun part."
"Uh-huh," Antoine nodded as he started the car up again. Bunnie was speechless as she turned slowly to face the front.
"Mommy, Daddy," Belle asked after a moment.
"Yes dear," Antoine answered.
"Where do babies come from?" She asked innocently.
"Well..." Bunnie began to think of an answer to give the four year old.
"From mommies," Jacque answered. "Shadow told Amy that he felt bad that she has to do all the hard work and he could only help with the fun part."
"Oh." Belle responded. "Are they having a boy or girl?"
Jacque shrugged. "I hope we can play together though."
"But it'll take a while for the baby to get big enough to play with," Belle pouted.
"We can give it our old toys I don't play with my alphabet ball anymore.? Jacque suggested.
"I still like my ladybug rattle, but it can have my old car seat. Do you think it'll like tiger?" Belle mused.
Antoine and Bunnie sighed. "Shadow has no clue what he's getting into." Antoine chuckled.
"Ssh..." Bunnie warned. "They'll hear you." She nodded her head back to the kids who were discussing which toys they would give to Amy's baby.
