In Seaside Island comes the nightfall. Perci the bandicoot, sits on the balcony of her room in a big five apartment shack and looks at the stars in the sky. When she sees a shooting star fall, she closes her eyes and begins to make a wish. Suddenly she hears a knock at the door breaking her concentration.
Perci: *quickly jumps up from the chair and walks to the door* Who is it?
First there is no answer, just a crying sniffling. Then a familiar voice is heard behind the door.
???: Perci, it's me.
Perci: *confused* Amy? Is that you?
Amy: Yes! Can I come in, please.
Perci: *opens the door and gets the worst shock in her life* OMG, Amy! What's happened?
The pink hedgehog stands crying next to her, with wet and dirty clothes. Her quills are covered with mud and her right arm shows deep wounds.
Amy: *looks with tears at her* I don't know, where I should go now. You are the only person, who I can trust at the moment.
Perci: *still shocked* OMG! *grabs her by the arm and pulls her in* Please, come in. I have to clean your wounds. But first... *looks at her from head to foot* ...you have to take a shower. Then you will tell me everything. Please, follow me. *leads Amy to the bathroom*
Amy: *follows her with a sad lowered head* Forgive me, that I disturb you at this time.
Perci: *reaches the bathroom* No problem, Amy! Please, go in and take a shower. You can give me the dirty clothes. I will wash them.
The pink hedgehog nods sadly, walks in the bathroom, takes off her clothes and hands them to Perci.
Perci: *takes the clothes* Call me, if you need something.
Amy: *nods sadly again* OK. *closes the door*
Perci: *walks to the wash room and begins to clean Amy's clothes* I wonder what happened. *stops for a moment to wash the clothes* Wait a minute. Isn't today her birthday? *puts her hand to her mouth in shock* That poor girl. I think something terrible has happened. *continues to clean, as suddenly she hears a cry in the bathroom* Oh no! *runs to the bathroom and knocks at the door* Amy, are you alright?
In the bathroom, Amy sits crying in the shower cabin and lets the warm water flow on her naked body.
Perci: *knocks again* Amy, can you hear me? Are you alright?
Amy: *stands up and turn the water off* Yes, Perci! I hear you. I come out in 5 minutes!
Perci: *breathes out relieved* Thanks goodness. You can take my gown. I will wait in the living room for you.
After five minutes, Amy comes out of the bathroom and walks to the living room, where Perci waits for her.
Amy: *sits down on the couch next to her* Thank you for let me take a shower, Perci.
Perci: *take her arm and begins to clean her wounds with zelenka* No problem, Amy. *blows very gently on the wounds and asks worried* Does it hurt?
Amy: *drops her head sadly* Yes, it hurts. Very badly!
Perci: *continues to clean* I'm sorry. It will hurt just for few minutes, then the pain will go away.
Amy: *sighs* I don't mean the wounds.
Perci: *stops with the cleaning and looks confused at her* What do you mean?
Amy: *begins to cry again* He hurt me so many times, but this time I can't forgive him.
Perci: *more confused* Wait a minute. What's happened? And who is he?
Amy: *rolls the eyes and sighs* I mean Sonic! Who else?
Perci: *gets a little angry and folds her arms* Ok, now tell me what the little bastard did to you?
Amy: *looks in the room around, sees a mirror on the wall and looks into it* Perci? Am I ugly?
Perci: *widens her eyes* What? You are pretty. Just look at you how pretty you are. Each good looking guy in the village swoons, when you pass them.
Amy: *sighs and looks at the floor* But not he. He has never looked at me that way, like the pink hedgehog girl.
Perci: *confused* Which pink hedgehog girl? And please, tell me down to the last detail.
Amy: *sighs and begins to tell her* It all started yesterday.
