Chapter 25: Little Vixen
It was a dark, rainy night, the inky skies normally studded with winking stars admired by many were hidden from view by the thick blanket of clouds. Typically such a thing would disappoint a certain cerise colored hedgehog, but she was otherwise preoccupied that that moment, embroiled in a grave battle with her boyfriend. One that would require stealth, cunning and speed. (Damn him for being so gifted!) It was a fight for…
The last slice of pizza.
Amy blamed herself. Normally she wouldn't be in dire straits over pizza of all things, especially one chili dog supreme-she was a true born girly girl and maintaining a healthy weight was something she prided herself on. However it just couldn't be helped some days. Her boyfriend was a horrible, horrible-and really cute (not the point! She chided herself)-influence on her.
Argh! Why, Sonic? Why must you have such adorable emerald eyes that make it near to impossible to resist you? Granted, her eyes were almost exactly the same shade, just a hint darker, but still! He was a master when it came to using those pretty orbs of his in getting what he wanted. Which, when Amy really thought about it, was kind of a girly move, wasn't it? Ah well, maybe she's just as bad of an influence on him.
So there they were, two teenaged hedgehogs, dating for the last year and still going strong, locked in an intense staring contest, both half seated on the female's couch, half crouched, their fingers beginning to grow stiff from being poised to grab the sacred last slice of pizza.
It was childish and both Sonic and Amy knew this, but little fights like this were one of the couple's quirks that made them work so well.
Sonic smirked, his eyes dancing with mischief. "C'mon Ames," she nearly growled at the mocking humor in his voice. "You know who's most deserving of this last slice."
"Yeah, I know," her voice was bright, her eyes sparkling with just as much mirth. "The one who paid for it!" She snatched the box and high tailed it out of her living room and into her bedroom, slamming the door for both protection and to show her boyfriend how serious she was.
Sonic let out a loud laugh before leaping off the couch and racing after his girlfriend. He knocked on the door, feigned chivalry was always something that could get a giggle out of the female. "Amy…" He sang. "I've gotcha now!" He twisted the silver knob, only to find that it wouldn't completely give under his pressure.
Locked. Why that little sneak.
"What was that about getting me, Sonikku?" She teased. "I seem to still be in my room, still holding this delicious looking last slice of pizza."
He practically whimpered. He just knew she was spending way too much time with Rouge. Then again, he backtracked, he was just as notorious for being sneaky when necessary, particularly when it came to his favorite foods and there was the matter of being her boyfriend, so perhaps he held as much blame, but not as much as Rouge. Well, that's what he was saying to satisfy his ego.
"Mmm…" Amy hummed with relish. "This is so good…"
Sonic's jaw dropped and he swore he felt tears in his eyes. She was actually eating the pizza. His pizza! She knew chili dogs were his most favorite food and yet she was probably just casually seated on the bed eating the dang last slice! That was it, he just knew she was spending too much time with Rouge.
Before Sonic was aware of what he was doing, he found himself in Amy's room. Judging from the frozen look of shock on her face and the fact that she was still seated on her bed, he gathered that she hadn't opened the door for him. So how did he…?
Turning around, Sonic found Amy's door to be in pretty much nothing but splinters and sliced wood. He felt his muzzle burn with embarrassment. Apparently he was so desperate for the pizza, he had spin dashed right through her door.
"You do know that I usually keep my window open unless it's snowing, right?" Amy asked dryly as she jerked a thumb over to her window which was indeed open.
"Heh," Sonic scratched the back of his head sheepishly. "Y'know, maybe you should keep a lock on that thing. You never know who might try to sneak in."
His girlfriend rolled his eyes at that. "You mean other than you? Besides, you and I both know that I am very capable of protecting myself."
The hero of Mobius laughed weakly. "Good point." His eyes fell onto the pizza, noting the slice was still whole. Why that little vixen! She had been teasing him the whole time!
Spying the determination in Sonic's eyes, Amy grinned with a hint of roguish charm before getting off her bed and speeding away, twirling past her boyfriend as he made an attempt to grab her arm. "You're so getting me a new door!" the sakura hedgehog called out.
Sonic darted after her, effortlessly catching up. He had let her have her fun. Playtime was over. That slice of pizza was going to be his damn it!
Reaching the living room, Sonic increased his speed, snagging the coveted pizza from Amy's hand hardly giving the girl the chance to blink. He smiled widely, completely smug about his victory.
"Hey!" Amy whined, growing annoyed as Sonic sat next to her, still grinning cheekily. She pouted. "No fair."
"All's fair in love and war, Ames."
He brought the last slice of pizza dangerously close to his mouth. However before he could sink his teeth into the spicy cheesy goodness, Amy pounced, practically tackling the boy as she latched her mouth onto his, nearly giggling as she heard him squeak-yes, squeak- in surprise.
When the moment of shock passed, Sonic returned the kiss, tilting his head slightly as he wrapped one arm around Amy's waist, the other around her shoulders as he slid his fingers through her hair. They kept kissing for a minute when Sonic felt Amy smirk against his lips. It was then that he realized that he had both arms around her.
Amy sat up, still smirking as she held the pizza in her hand. "I win," she sang softly. She moved to the far end of the couch and bit into the now cold, but still tasty slice. Sonic blinked, unable to process that Amy, his sweet Amy Rose was a sneaky vixen after all. Thirty seconds passed before he realized that she was eating the chili dog supreme pizza and crawled after her.
"Aw, c-c'mon Ames!" He whined. "Can't ya share it?"
"Hm, I could," She replied with a slow nod. "But all that running around left me hungry." She took another bite. After swallowing, she continued, "you can have the crust."
"The crust?" Sonic all but shrieked. "Who cares about the crust? That's the worst part!"
Amy merely grinned around the slice as she held her pouting boyfriend off. He was right though. All was fair in love and war.
A most definite fact when it came to pizza.

Ahem, yeah, I've been alive this whole time, just school has kept me so busy. Plus Writer's Block has been really mean to me and the plot bunnies didn't want to come out to play. Except for this one. He was really fluffy. ^_^ Heh, also I've been reading Naruto fanfics and there are a ton of similarities to Sakura and Amy, ne? Sonic also has some similarities to both boys of Team Seven. Actually, I can picture this scenario happening with Sasuke and Sakura, only over tomatoes instead, and him being OOC.
I will do my best to update more often. Not on a regular schedule, but once a week or so. Not months later. I do have a title for the sequel to Before the Final Rose Petal Falls. It's called Wintry Enchantment and is based off of the Christmas "midquel" (yes, there is such a thing) for Beauty and the Beast.
