Starry Nights Prelude.:Amuto:.It's hard to remember before I met him.It's hard to forget that I hated him.It's impossible to forget that I almost lost him.----It was a cold night, as always. I stood on the balcony connected to my room, waiting for the first star. Even if it was winter, I still went out every night wishing on the first star, hoping to gain love with the guy that I had wanted that night.At the same time every night I would look up and pray, "Please let me be with Tadase-kun." And everyday I would go to school hoping my wish would be granted. And everyday nothing happened, so I'd wait till night fall and try again.Except, tonight was different. Tonight my thoughts were filled with someone else.Tonight all I would wish for was for Ikuto to come home. Tonight all I would wish for was for his plane to land safely, and for him to sustain good health.I waited another five minutes, when I spotted the first star. I smiled to my self and said "Dear God, If you are really out there
Starry Nights Ch.3 .:Amuto:."As we grow older together, As we continue to change with age, There is one thing that will never change. . . I will always keep falling in love with you."-Karen Clodfelder----Being a cold night as it was, my room felt like a cooling room.At first I wondered why, but as I looked over to the screen door, I noticed it was wide open. I'd love to say I was mad,but I wasn't.In fact, I smiled.Even if the room was cold. It was cold because he was home.And that, was all that mattered.I began to walk over to close the door, and turn on the radio, like I did every night. I turned it down as low as possible, and crawled into bed.Some upbeat love song was playing, she was singing about her lovers return after what seemed like forever, which in turn, made me smile and bury my face into my pillow.Suddenly, I felt a flood of cold air and two long cold arms wrap around me.I tensed up, and squealed.Laughing and squealing I whined, "Aaack! You're cold!!"I was then giggl
Starry Nights Ch.2 .:Amuto:."You know its gonna make it that much better, When we can say goodnight and stay together.Wouldnt it be nice if we could wake up, In the morning when the day is new! And after having spent the day together, hold each other close the whole night through~"- The Beach boys "Wouldn't it be nice"-----"I-Ikuto?"I was in shock. For five years all I had done was fantasize how I would greet him when he returned. With hugs? Kisses? ...Sex?I wanted to laugh at the last fantasy. Damn hormones."Amu."He winked at me, and I felt heels over head for him. Damn that boy. He was too much. I felt as excited as Utau when she haven't seen him for a good while. Suddenly I imagined how she'll act when she sees him now.Jeez, had he ever grown up.He was much taller now. Much more...manly. The Ikuto I remembered was merely... cute compared to this Ikuto that stood in front of me.I was absolutely frozen.Of course, he noticed this right away. Along with the open pantie drawer."Wel
Starry Nights Ch.1 .:Amuto:."The days pass, the seconds feeling like hours. The days eventually grow to weeks, then the weeks to months. And just when I think your coming back, the months turn to years."-----It has been 5 years since the last time I saw Ikuto. A long, agonizing, Ikuto-less five years.A lot has changed since he kissed me goodbye at that lonely airport.For one, I graduated high school.For another, I dated Tadase. Even if it was short lived, it was painful. I did it with the intentions to relieve myself of Ikuto. Since I was sure I'd never see his face again.It's hard to stay close when someone never calls you, cause someone forgot their phone at home.Another big change was between me and Rima. Firstly we moved in together, and Secondly her parents got divorced.It nearly killed her, but I welcomed her with open arms to come live in my apartment, so she could get out.But, even with the extra company I could never shake that feeling of loneliness.I'd just sit up all nigh
An Amy Story, Chapter oneSonic the Hedgehog Sonic swam to shore. I c-can't be-believe-- He coughed a few times. --I l-lost. He started walking back to the lab but he heard Amy scream. SONIKKU!!!! Huh? That must be Amy. He started running towards the sound.Amy Rose Amy was once again looking for Sonic, this time in the forest. Sonic, Sonic! Where are you? called Amy. She felt an unnatural breeze, and then suddenly Sonic was there. What do you want? He asked. I was going to show you the card I made. Said Amy. Is that why you called me? Asked Sonic, somehow with the hint of anger. Of course! I mean-- Amy was cut off Look, would you please leave me alone? Just this once! I'm sick of you always chasing around, showing me useless stuff! Sonic said.&
Lifes Twists and Turns Amy walked briskly toward the sidewalk. She leaned around one of the cars blocking her sight of the street. Quickly shifting the basket she held to her shoulder she crossed the street and continued on to the park. A gust of wind blew her quills into her face and cooled her down from the hot summer day. She could smell fire coming from backyards while children had fun cooking things in it. The Summer breeze complemented it nicely making the air smell crisp. Amy spotted Cream right away as she entered through the park gate. "Hey," Cream shouted, "over here Amy!" she waved happily to Amy who ran toward her friend. "Hey Cream." Amy said setting down the basket and wrapped her arms around Cream.
Shadamy Two of a Kind FinalChpThe next morning Amy called in sick to her training. She took a bath and sat in her window-seat, looking down on the street. Not knowing what to do with herself, she got out a sketch pad. Amy wasnt that much of an artist, but she did alright. She began to sketch different people on the street, then found herself drawing Shadow. She frowned, and began to rub it out.Amy stopped. Shadow. Sonic. Sonic loved Sally, not her. She could accept that now. She got up to the phone and held the phone in her hand. Her heart trembled, and the phone shook slightly in her hands. She jabbed the buttons, and put the phone to her ear. Amy shook all over, her stomach being enveloped by nothingness. Why was she so nervous? Her heart nearly stopped when she heard the phone ring.What felt like an eternity later, an answer came.Hello?Amys heart stopped and she gasped for breath. Hello? Is this your idea of a joke Sonic? Its not funny you ass.Amy gasped. No,

Fighting for you shadamyProlouge:Little Shadow sat upon the temple porch admiring the peach trees from afar while sipping his tea. It was forbidden for a Tengu* to take a step out from the temples gates. It must cause havoc and danger for humans (normal animals?)."This is so boring." he muttered to himself as he took another sip of his chai tea.He sat up and stretched "Well, I'm going inside." he said to himself as he gathered up his mangas and drank the remaining tea from his cup, but then, a ball rolled in."What the?" he picked the round polka-dotted thing "What is this thing? Some sort of week demon?" he admired. Stupid Shadow.He heard cries from the temple gates. Cries of children laughing and yelling and ... crying."Who left the temple gates open?" he asked himself and saw three boys and one girl picking on something, or someone."Your a liar Amy!" one of the boys called."Yeah! Theres no such thing as demons!" the girl mocked. She pointed at the little hedgehog in shame of her.The little hedgehog
Shadow x Amy part 1Part 1: What the hell was I thinking?Amy stood on her balcony. Looking over the city she silently sighed as she remembered her talk with Sonic from a week ago. She remembered everything that happened. How he told her that he didn't want her
"I'm sorry Amy
" he paused. "I just don't think that I'm ready to have a girlfriend. I like you but, I'm just not sure that I do in that way..." Those words... she thought, It's like him stabbing a knife in my heart..."But... I thought we would be able to get together sometime." Amy wanted to believe.He sighed again "Amy, if I have you as a girlfriend, you'll be a target for Eggman. I can't risk that.""Is that it?" She stood up and screamed. "You think that I can't take care of myself?!""N-no Amy It's just...""Just what?""I... don't... know."I don't know? What kind of crap is this? "Great. Just great." She left and slammed the door on Sonic's call.I can't believe he would do this to me...

A Locket Full Of LoveSonic POVI ran cutting through the warm summer air. Amy Rose was after me again. Sonic! Please stop. I heard her pant, probably stopped to catch her breath. I actually stopped this time, for a reason unknown. I turned and watched her approach me with a hand over her heart as she breathed hard. Thank you. She sighed as she approached me.Amy I dont want to have to run away from you anymore. I just want to be friends and stay friends. I said quietly. A tiny bit of shock formed on her face. Luckily she didnt seem sad. It would kill me if I made her cry.I actually wasnt going to talk about that, but I...understand. I just wanted to give you, She reached into a pocket of her jeans and pulled out an object, this. she gently grasped my hand and curled my fingers around the object.

Sonamy chapter 1SonamyChapter 1Normal POVA bright beam of moonlight sliced through the murky darkness, illuminating the brilliant pink of the young hedgehog's hair. Her hand, resting with fingers curled by her head, twitched slightly. She wrinkled her nose, shaking her head and mumbling something in her sleep.*Amy's heart pounded, and the only sound that she could hear was the roaring of blood in her ears. She forced her legs to propel her forward faster, panting as she hurtled across the open field littered with heather and gorse bushes. She knew that behind her lay the wasteland where it had all began. Her thoughts scrambled in her brain, and she didn't see the root until too late."Ahhh!" She shrieked as she tumbled down the gentle slope, fumbling for a hold on something. As she skidded, she felt her foot bump something and looked wildly around, seeing the rock just in time.Amy thrust her feet out to the side, catching the rock with the tip of her toes. After a desperate heave, she righted he
