Hey people! Shadow let me live thank god. Hope he's nicer to me this time if I make him cooler than Sonic of course. Well hope you like this chapie a lot more. HERE WE GO!
The next morning, Amy slept in her bed silently. She tossed and turned all over in bed moaning loudly. She started crying in her sleep as well. "No...please...no." she moaned.
(Amy's dream POV)
I was in a beautiful field of different colored roses. I looked all over and noticed someone in the distance. I ran up to the person trying to see who it was, but when I got closer I noticed it was Shadow.
"Shadow!" I said he turned around to see me. He was holding a pink rose in his hands and he was smiling. I loved that smile of his, he always showed me his smile whenever I was sad, mad, or he was being very nice to me. In fact I'm the only one that he smiles at.
He walked up to me and put the rose in my hair. I felt his large hand caressing my cheek. He felt so warm to touch I wanted more of it. I looked up at him and he started leaning closer to me. I was starting to get scared and I shivered in his touch. I saw him move his mouth, but no words came out. I only noticed what the last thing he mouthed to me 'my rose' he said.
I started blushing like mad. I remember that he said I was his rose. And he was my knight. I began to feel his breath on me. His nose was touching mine and our lips were so close to each other. I couldn't help it I wanted him to kiss me. I leaned in a little for him, I closed my eyes and waited for his soft lips brush against mine.
But I didn't feel them. I opened my eyes and screamed. I saw Shadow on the floor with a sword in his back. I sat next to him calling his name over and over again. But he was gone. I sat there crying an endless waterfall. I lifted my hands to see them coated in crimson blood. His blood. I hid my face in my hands smelling his blood. I wanted to wake up. I prayed to wake up from this horrible nightmare.
"Finally now that he's out of the way." I heard a voice of another man in front of me. He sounded dark and cruel. I looked up at him with my tear stained face. I couldn't see his face, but I saw a green man who looked like a hedgehog towing over me. His hands were stained in blood. He must be Shadow's killer! "No one will help you!".
I saw his blue eyes staring at me like daggers. I felt like my legs won't listen to me. I sat there sniffing and breathing fast. What did he mean by 'no one will help me'? I saw him taking the sword out of Shadow's back and raise it over his head. My eyes widened to what he was about to do.
I tried to get up, but my legs were like glued to the ground. "DIE!" I heard him yell and he swung the sword down at me. I let a blood curling scream and I finally woke up.
(end of Amy's dream POV)
Amy shot off the pillow screaming. She looked around her room and sighed. She placed a hand on her chest and felt her heart beating very fast. 'Thank god! It was only a nightmare!' she thought as she regained her breath.
Suddenly the doors flew open making Amy jump. She looked over to the entrance and saw Nina standing next there with a bundle of blankets in her arms, "My lady! Are you alright?" she asked dropping her load and running to her side, "I'm fine Nina. I had a nightmare. That's all." Amy sighed.
Nina sighed and gathered up the now dirty blankets, "Im sorry my lady." she apologized walking back to the doors, "Oh your alright! I shouldn't have screamed like that." Amy said closing her eyes and rubbing the back of her head.
Nina nodded and walked out of the room. Amy got out of bed and walked over to the wardrobe, "That was some nightmare." she said to herself, "who was that strange hedgehog?" she continued to think while she got dressed.
She came out of her room with a light blue dress that had beaded swirls on the bottom of the skirt. She had her hair down this time, but wore a blue hair band. She woar some comfortable black flats to go with it.
She walked down the halls of the castle and made her way to the courtyard when she heard grunting and panting outside. She walked out and saw Shadow practicing his sword play with a red echidna. The echidna had no protective gear on him, just his black tunic and a green hodded cape. He held a large sword the size of a broom that looked like flame.
Shadow jumped up and slashed his sword onto him, but the red echidna was faster and quickly dodged it. Shadow turned around for a second attempt, but the echidna side kicked in in the groin and upper cut his jaw making the black hedgehog fly. Amy gasped at how high he made Shadow go. He landed flat on his back. Hurt, but he got up trying to keep his balance.
The red echidna walked up to him and bowed as did Shadow, "I'm impressed. Your uncle taught you well. But you had to be a lot more stronger to take me out." the echidna gloated Shadow rolled his eyes, but smiled, "Thank you. Now I see why they call you 'The famouse sword fighter Knuckles'." he chuckled.
Knuckles laughed and pat his shoulder, "Yes I know. But you need to work on your speed. You were a little flat on that last move though." he said Shadow nodded.
Amy walked up to them and waved, "Sir Shadow! Mr Knuckles!" she called out both of them heard her and bowed to her, "Good morning princess." Shadow greeted, "How are you your highness?" Knuckles asked.
Amy giggled a little, "Come on your my friends you can't bow to me all the time. Rise up." she laughed bothe rosed up and nodded. Knuckles sheethed his sword and turned to Shadow, "I must go. Their waiting for me to train the newbies." he mentioned and walked off to the training hall.
Shadow and Amy walked through the courtyard taking all the clean air and smells of the flowers around them, "So princess." Shadow said Amy looked at him, "Yes?" she asked.
"The maid Nina I think said you had a nightmare last night." Amy made a tiny gasp. She forgot her dream while watching Shadow fight. "Yes I did, but it wasn't that bad." she lied.
Shadow stared at her confusingly, "Are you sure? She said she heard you scream and you looked like you saw a ghost. If you want to tell me about it, all hallways here for you." Amy continued to stare in front of her.
How could she tell him that she had a dream that he was going to kiss her, then be killed in front of her. She also couldn't explain about the mysterious green hedgehog that killed him and her in the dream. "Well...I had a cat and it died...yeah that's it." she lied.
Shadow sweat dropped and raised an eyebrow at her, "Oh...I see...alright I guess." he sighed and faced forward. Amy felt terrible that she kept a secret from him and lied to him. They made a deal that they wouldn't keep secrets from each other, so it made her a lot more sad. 'Im so sorry Shadow.' she thought.
When they got in the castle, Flora was smiling and jumping on her throne. Arson was smiling as well, but not jumping. Shadow and Amy exchanged confused looks at each other and back at them, "Uhh...mother? Father? What's going on?" Amy asked.
Flora saw her and immediately calmed down. She cleared her throat and held out a letter, "This is a letter from a very rich kingdom not to far from here." she exclaimed, "The kingdom is called Ufornia and the king there has a son who is just the right age for you." Arson continued.
Amy still confused raised an eyebrow at them, "So...why are you happy?" she asked Flora and Arson looked at each other and nodded, "Well my dear rose, since it's a rich kingdom and the king has a son, we made an arrange marridge for you and his son." Arson said smiling.
Amy widened her eyes and stood there with her mouth open. Shadow on the other hand was shocked the most. "Excuse me! An arranged marridge!" Amy asked she started tearing up on the corner of her eyes, "Why yes, Amy. King Marson and his son Scourge are coming here in two days to meet you, so we expect you to be on your best behavior." Flora said sternly, "And Shadow. I want you to watch her closely as possible when he's here. Is that understood?" Arson asked.
Shadow took a minute to breath and nodded, "Of course, your highness." he replied. Flora got up off her throan and walked up to Amy. She hugged her tightly, "I'm so happy for you, my darling. This will make everything better for us." she smiled.
Amy held back her tears as hard as she can, "I'm..happy too, mother." she choked. Flora let her go and walked up to her husband's side, "Shadow. Please take her to her room." Arson ordered. Shadow bowed and took Amy's hand, "Let's go, princess." he whispered softly and led her to her chambers.
Along the way, Amy teared up, but not to much for Shadow to hear. She couldn't believe what her parents have done for her. How could they be so thoughtless! Was all of this supposed to help her, or lose her life. Amy continued to think while crying softly.
Shadow was torn. He wished none of this has ever happened! He never told her how much she meant to him, now it's too late! She practically engaged to someone. He wished he known this before. Now it's too late to change anything. He felt tears forming in the corner of his eyes, but refused to let them fall.
They made it to her room. Amy placed her hands on the handles, "Uhh.. Shadow?" she asked he looked at her, but didn't say anything, "I...well...thank you...Shadow." she opened her door and got in. She took one last look over her shoulders to see if he was still there. Shadow nodded and closed the doors slowly.
Outside Shadow hid his face in his hand and started to cry. 'Damn it! Why am I crying! A knight shouldn't cry!' he cursed. He wiped his eyes with his sleeve and was about to leave when he heard muffled crying behind the doors. Amy sat next to them and hid her face in her hands, 'Why! Why am I crying! Shouldn't I be happy! I'm getting married! So I should be happy, right!' she thought.
Shadow sat there next to the doors hearing her crying. I wished that he could go in and comfort her, but he wasn't aloud to as a knight. He stayed there till she stopped crying. If the doors weren't there, they would be back to back.
Me: Damn it! Now I'm crying!
Sonic: Wow! Who knew you were that bad. You killed Shadow twice!
Me: Oh fuck off Sonic! Do you want to be in this or not!
Sonic: Fine! Yes I wanna be in it! So what part do I play?
Me: ...Haven't thought about it yet?
Sonic: What! Are you serious! Am I that bad to be put in a shadamy story!
Me: Hmmm let me think...YES! Now shut up so I can try to think!
Sonic: Great! We'll be here for a while.
Me: I HEARD THAT! (takes out a piko piko hammer and chases Sonic around)
Sonic: Well hope you liked this one so stay tuned for the next chapter. AUUUGH! CRAZY LADY WITH A HAMMER! HEEEEELP!
