Sick of the Ignorance

Shadow’s P.O.V

‘Not again!’ I thought as I heard the all too familiar sound of boots coming fast and the whacking of a giant Piko-Piko Hammer, I tried hiding in the shadows as I knew running away was useless but to no avail “Sonic!” Amy Rose shouted as she jumped on top of me, pinning me down to the ground. “Amy for the last time, open your God damn eyes! I’m not Sonic!” I shouted, she studied me more carefully and quickly hopped off and I could actually feel my legs again. “Sorry Shadz” she said and sweat dropped “Amy” I sighed “you seem to be mistaking me for Sonic much more often lately, is there something wrong? Because I really don’t like being tackled every day” I tried not to growl the last part. She seemed to have a sad look in her eyes at the mention of sonic’s name when someone other than her said it, suddenly out of nowhere she dropped to her knees and began to cry. “Wow, calm down, tell me what’s wrong, no need for tears, come on now” I said, trying to sooth her, I really hated seeing people cry it got on my nerves somehow, I tried to comfort her but she pushed me away “Amy I could help you if you’d just let me” I said with a surprisingly calm tone. “No! Just leave me alone!” She screamed and pulled out of my grip, leaning and sobbing against the wall behind us, I was going to respect her wishes but what did I do wrong? I got up and walked off and it pained me to do so, why was I so concerned about her? What was it that made her so special?

Amy’s P.O.V

“Why can’t I just be honest with myself?!” I screamed as I curled into the corner, Sonic’s been ignoring my signs of affection towards him all his life and only now have I started to accept that he’ll never love me… Never… Since then sometimes I get a little over depressed and go back to my old ways, but instead of Sonic it’s Shadow I’m chasing after and I’m still stuck on why since they look and act nothing alike. I finally got a hold of myself and started to walk home, I’m staying with Rouge at the moment since she offered me a place so I didn’t have to be alone all the time. I told her about the events that have been occurring and she just shook her head and laughed at me, when I asked her why she was laughing she told me I was doing the same thing to Shadow as I was with Sonic. I still didn’t understand but she told me that I had to figure it out on my own, I think I’m starting to piece it together but I just can’t believe it. It’s just so strange, why the sudden change in men? First it was outgoing and heroic and suddenly its confined and dark, I eventually reached Rouge’s house and unlocked the door with the spare key she gave me, the first thing I saw when I entered was Rouge starting on her delicious dinners. “Figure it out hun?” Rouge asked with a smirk as she saw me enter the house “Yeah… But why the sudden change? It just doesn’t make any sense that’s all” I said and walked into the living room that was connected to the kitchen and slumped onto the couch with a sigh, Rouge just laughed, she loved to tease me. “Love’s like that honey, but don’t worry I’m sure lover boy’ll figure it out as well, personally I think he’s a lot smarter than that hero Sonic” Rouge said, I started to zone out and think about what I was going to do next, should I tell him? Should I tell Shadow the Hedgehog that I was falling for him?
