                                             Enchanted

There I was again tonight
Forcing laughter, faking smiles
Same old tired, lonely place

It's seven-thirty in the evening in Station Square's mansions. A quiet & lonely night for a certain seventeen year old pink hedgehog. She was at her home, celebrating her older sister's birthday. She wasn't in a party mood much... She was too busy thinking about her ex-boyfriend, who dumped her this morning by via text message.

This young hedgehog's name is Ashley Rose. Everyone close/related to calls her Ash for short.

Walls of insincerity
Shifting eyes and vacancy

She was chatting with four other pink female hedgehogs, identical to her, & a tarnish-brown male hedgehog. Except one of the pink hedgehog had purple tips on the ends of her quills and magenta bangs. Their hedgehog names are Amy, Amelia, Lillian, & Amanda Rose. The main difference was their eyes. Ashley has a ruby red colored eyes. Amelia has turquoise blue colored eyes. Amy has emerald green colored eyes. Lillian has golden yellow eyes. Ramvelle has brown eyes. Amanda has amethyst violet eyes.

Vanished when I saw your face
All I can say is it was enchanting to meet you

When Ashley looked up to see a black and red hedgehog walking over to her. His name is Shadow the Hedgehog. Amy looked up to see a blue hedgehog walking over to her. His name is Sonic the Hedgehog.

Your eyes whispered "Have we met?"
Across the room, your silhouette
Starts to make its way to me

Shadow and Sonic began talking to them. Shadow was flirting with Ashley. Telling her how beautiful Ashley looked in her silky lavender dress. Sonic was talking to Amy. Chatting quite nicely to her.


Shadow lead Ashley outside into Amy's garden. Where the sky is filled with stars and the full moon shining bright on them.

Counter all your quick remarks
Like passing notes in secrecy
And it was enchanting to meet you
All I can say is I was enchanted to meet you

Beginning a conversation on how much they hated people calling them emo and talking about different genres of music. Ashley was telling Shadow about how her ex-boyfriend, Acwellen the Hedgehog, dumped her at six in the morning last week. Which made her really depressed for awhile. All the time, she was thinking how he was so nice to her. How he makes eye-contact every time she speaks.

This night is sparkling, don't you let it go
I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
I'll spend forever wondering if you knew
I was enchanted to meet you


Ashley was up at two in the morning the very next day. She lived in the same house with her siblings. Thinking about Shadow. About how sweet and kind he was to her... Unlike the others who give her dirty looks. Besides Amy, Amanda, Amelia, Lillian, & Ramvelle.

The lingering question kept me up
2 am, who do you love?
I wonder 'til I'm wide awake
Now I'm pacing back and forth

She kept pacing. It made Amy concerned... But, Ashley kept doing it... She kept wishing Shadow was at her front door.

Wishing you were at my door
I'd open up and you would say "hey"
It was enchanting to meet you

All I know is I was enchanted to meet you

Ashley kept thinking about the amazing walk through the park with only her and Shadow. She loved being there to watch the fireflies to swarm around them. Blushing every time he complimented her.

This night is sparkling, don't you let it go
I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
I'll spend forever wondering if you knew
I was enchanted to meet you

When she got home. She turned on romantic music, which she doesn't like much, and started dancing around her room. Completely out of her character. And she, honestly, didn't care. Because she was really happy and loved her life. Despite her hating it earlier in the week. All because of her dumbass, ex of a boyfriend.

This night is flawless, don't you let it go
I'm wonderstruck, dancing around all alone
I'll spend forever wondering if you knew
I was enchanted to meet you

Ashley was hoping that this was the start of something new. She was hoping this was the start of a new chapter in her life; not where she fell in love with him and realized that he wasn't going to ever contact her again. She was thinking his name for a long time. Maybe even for the rest of her life.

This is me praying that
This was the very first page
Not where the story line ends

My thoughts will echo your name

Ashley was hoping to see Shadow again. At the park where they went or at hers, Amy's, and Amelia's next party (with them being triplets, of course). Wherever it might be, she's hoping. She kept three simple words from him that night. Ashley thought the night let too quickly.

Until I see you again
These are the words I held back
As I was leaving too soon
I was enchanted to meet you

Her most dying wish is that he wasn't in love with another girl or had some girl waiting on him. Or even that he planned to get married to another. It would break her heart if she learned that.

Just that one night had her fallen head over heels in love with him.

Please don't be in love with someone else
Please don't have somebody waiting on you

Please don't have somebody waiting on you

She thought last night was the best night of her life. Hoping he doesn't let it go. She's completely wonder-struck. She was blushing a bright red all the way home from the party. Again, which wasn't like her. She thought last night was flawless. She'll spend forever wondering if Shadow knew. That Ashley was glad to have met him and that she was glad that she had fallen in love with him.

This night is sparkling, don't you let it go
I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
I'll spend forever wondering if you knew
This night is flawless, don't you let it go

I'm wonderstruck, dancing around all alone

I'll spend forever wondering if you knew
I was enchanted to meet you

Before she went to bed, she kept hoping he wasn't in love with someone else or had someone waiting on him.

Please don't be in love with someone else
Please don't have somebody waiting on you

Ashley finally fell asleep, dreaming of Shadow the Hedgehog. Dreaming that they'll get married and live a happily ever after. With many children and grandchildren.

Because, she just knew, that they were soulmates. That they're meant to be together.
