The Island: Chapter 2


Sonic's POV

We were relieved when the storm was finally over and that feeling intensified when we saw that there was practically no damage done to our island. As if by miracle, our hut was just fine too. Though it shouldn't have survived, it was still here. So without much hindrance our life continued on the island.
The days after the terrible storm and his first move, Shadow and I just kept growing closer and closer. We were together 24/7. Just the two of us and no one else. We talked, we joked, I drove Shadow crazy, I got him to smile.
Days turned into weeks and weeks turned into another month, but by the time we hit our second month on the island, we were pretty much inseparable.
Besides the daily routine of searching wood and food, we took the time to explore and learn. I pretty much studied Shadow's survival guide from the inside out and the hedgehog taught me a few more useful tricks, whatever came to mind.
But besides the learning, the exploring and the surviving, we wanted to have some fun from time to time aswell. We did need some time to relax, we couldn't focus on our survival all the time. So we came up with some fun ways to spend our spare time. Like swimming at a lake for example.
Well, Shadow likes to swim.
The island was bigger than we thought it was. Scratch that, it was gigantic!
The beach nearly went all around the island, Shadow suspects there to be a cliff somewhere on the other side as there seemed to be a mountainous-like region too. It problaby included a volcano Shad had made a mental note about checking out if it was dormant or not.
We haven't been there yet. We've tried to do some exploring, but it was impossible to explore everything in just a mere two months. Not only was it an enormous island, but there was also a dense jungle filled to the brim with life of any kind, both dangerous and harmless.
And it was also kind of a shame to just get rid of any mystery this place had by scouting every nook and cranny, wasn't it? To keep some regions to explore tomorrow was kinda fun too.
Either way all of that life piqued the interest of the inner scientist any Robotnik apparently had, non-blood related Shadow included. I can't begin to count how many times we've sat around our campfire and caught glimpses of Shadow shooting glances at the dark jungle in the evening during dinner, visibly making a decision to go out first thing tomorrow to see just what lived and grew in there and how many undiscovered species he'd be able to find.
Something we did find, however, was a deep and wide lake with the most clearest water I have ever seen. You could see straight to the bottom, no matter how deep you went.
The surrounding area was beautiful aswell. There was a thin sandy shore around the lake, the greenest grass imaginable and a waterfall streaming down a cliff at the far side away from us.
After tending to our necessary duties, we decided to have some fun here. On Shadow's request, of course. He wanted to take a dive while fun currently meant staying at the shallow part in my swimming trunks and watching said hedgehog for me.
That seems to be my guilty pleasure of mine as of late.
Just watching Shadow and that's it.
"How deep do you think that is?" The hedgehog on my mind asked as he pulled his top over his head, revealing the soft white fluff underneath.
"I don't know and I'm not going to find out either." I answered as I seated mysef on the sand with my lower legs in the water. That was as far as I was willing to go.
The ocean was large, but the water was just as clear. This lake wasn't as large, but the water was still as clear. I've been in the ocean up to my knees, but that was for fishing and when the occasional piece of debris came washing up. I refused to go any further into the lake than I already am. Well, that was because the sandy floor suddenly dipped down somewhere not too far away.
I wanted nothing to do with that dip.
Shadow let his top fall on the shore close to me before removing his shorts and shoes to just leave his swimming trunks on his person.
I watched that hedgehog from my position on the ground, lying down with my arms crossed beneath my head, not in the least bit bothered by my own spines.
As I mentioned before, Shadow was an 'hermaphrodite', as he still liked to put it, everyone in our circle of friends knew that. It was some getting used to at first, but we all got used to it soon enough. It was normal to them, it was normal to me.
But I liked the way his body was shaped, I'll admit that. He was lean and slender, but the muscle he did have were tight and there was barely an ounce of fat on him. Except where it counted down below, of course. The booty.
Shadow's body was obviously trained, but in a way that it wouldn't exactly be obvious through his clothing.
Shadow liked it that way. It was deceptive. It amused him to see people's face when they realised just how strong he really was. I, on the other hand, just liked the way he looked.
I never considered myself gay or bi, but after spending two months of watching that bod made me never want to look away again.
I wasn't too bad myself, of course. No, scratch that, my body is awesome! I may not be as muscled as Knuckles, he is obviously stronger than me when it came to actual strength, but people did think twice about messing with me and not just for my reputation.
And not to brag, but I'm pretty sure Shadow has been giving me looks aswell.
What am I saying, of course he is! He already had feelings for me, but it's still a nice thought, though.
"Are you sure you would rather wait here instead of coming with me?" Shadow asked, adjusting his swimming trunks without a care in the world before stretching a little, not at all aware that someone was oggling him. Or maybe he just didn't mind.
"No way, you go ahead and have some fun on your own." I responded, making sure Shadow knew there was no way in hell that I was going in.
"Sonic, you do know we are on an island surrounded by water, don't you? You're going to need to learn how to swim sooner or later." Shadow told me, looking down on me with his arms crossed in front of his chest.
"Hey, I know how to swim, I just don't like doing it and water hates me." I muttered and closed my eyes, hoping Shad would take a hint and go swim already.
With a huff he relented and entered the water, ignoring the chilling cold of its embrace.
I opened one of my eyes a little to watch his slim figure gradually disappear into the water, scooping a handful up to soak his fur beforehand, before closing them again and enjoying the heat of the day.
If there was one place and time that I could take it slow, it was on a sunny beach in the middle of Summer.
Sometime after that, I dozed off.

I woke back up only a couple of hours later.
I yawned as I stretched my arms and back before opening my eyes, realising that the sun was already low in the sky. That had to mean it was late in the afternoon.
"Dangit, for just how long have I been asleep?" I questioned out loud while I sat upright and took the watch Shadow had left behind along with his clothes. So far the thing still worked.
It really has been a few hours now, but as I looked all around, the owner of the wristwatch was nowhere to be found.
"Shadow?" I called for him as I stood up. It was already time to get back, but I was completely on my own.
It was rather lonely.
I turned my gaze to the lake and realised that Shadow might have very well taken a dive and never made it back to the surface.
All the guy needed to live was Chaos Energy. Food and water was just an option, a second necessity, but he didn't need it to stay alive. Just healthy. That was sorta the same with air. So as long as he that energy, he could die as many times as he wanted in every possible way and he would still come back. It was a theory that we strongly believed in.
If Shadow somehow got stuck on something in the water or hit his head or something, he could've drowned and be lying on the bottom of the lake right now on this very moment, waiting for me to come get him and bring him back to the surface where he could breath.
I had to get in there. I had to go in and save him! I can't leave him down there to rot!
Water or not, my fear didn't matter if someone I cared for was in danger. I could push my fear aside, especially for this particular person.
I took a deep couple of breaths to calm myself down before reluctantly entering the body of water, approaching the sudden dip in the bottom.
I could swim. I just had to remind myself of that. Sure, it's been a while, but I could still do it. I can swim, I can dive. I can do this.
I can't run, there is no air, my movements are heavier and slower, but I could do it. I can't defend myself if I ever needed to, I wouldn't panic if something were to happen, I could do it.
Although...
"Stop it!" I growled at myself, angered.
Like a douchebag, my mind tried to scare me into staying as far away from the clear liquid as possible, but I couldn't do this to him, I couldn't leave him down there.
So I calmed myself down for as much as was possible before submerging myself.
I tried to keep my eyes open while I looked around, trying to spot an especially dark mobian somewhere on the bottom. My missing companion was nowhere to be found and so I broke the surface again.
But not before watching something disappear into an opening of some kind. It looked like a large hole in the stone wall. Did that lead to a cave or something?
I took another deep breath and dove back down again, my gaze settling on the opening, eyes squinting.
Could he really be in there?
Only one way to find out.
Suddenly two hands grabbed my shoulder and I, in my panic, broke the surface with a panicked yelp, looking around in apparent shock.
"Sonic, what're you doing?!" A familiar voice asked and I whipped around to face the owner, coming eye to eye with a pair of red rubies.
"Shadow, you're okay!" I exclaimed as I grabbed his upper arms and looked him over, trying to spot any injuries.
"Of course I am. What made you think otherwise?" Shadow asked, one eyebrow raising. He actually looked startled by my want to examine him.
"You were nowhere to be found and your clothes were still lying there. I thought you had drowned or something." I said, finishing my brief scan as there wasn't immediatly something wrong with him.
"You... frightened me." I admitted, earning a frown from the other.
"Than I must apologise. Something in the lake startled me and I hit my elbow right on that sensitive spot. I left the lake to take a closer look at it and noticed that it was bleeding quite a bit. I wanted to go back to the camp to treat it. You had dozed off so I didn't wake you up, figuring that I'd be back before you woke up." Shadow explained and pointed to his left elbow, but there was nothing to be found.
"But then I remembered my newly found healing abilities, felt like an idiot, sped my regeneration up, and warped back here only to find you in the water facedown. I wasn't even gone for five minutes. I'm sorry if I worried you." He apologised, but I could only sigh.
Shadow was just fine. There had been no reason to worry for him.
I let go of him and returned to the shore with the hedgehog right on my heels.
"So wait, you said something startled you. What was it?" I asked and turned on my heels to face him again, glad to be out of that terrifying liquid.
"Yes, I did. It was quite large and dark, I didn't get a good look at it, but it swam out of an underwater cave." He answered, kneeling in front of me.
"Eh, really? I saw something swimming into the cave." I replied, recalling the dark figure I saw.
"You saw it too? I wanted to take a closer look at it-"
"Maybe we should keep that for another time." I quickly stated, earning a look from him.
"It's getting late." I cast my gaze downward, avoiding his eyes.
Truth is, I didn't want to go back into the water and I wasn't about to let Shadow go back in on his own so soon. I didn't want him too.
So it'll have to wait for another time.
"You're right. We should probably head back and make sure our food is still there." Shadow decided to cave in and stood up, offering me a hand.
We gathered our stuff and, with a quick utter of two simple words, we returned home.

I woke up the next morning and found myself just sitting there and staring at Shadow. For once I woke up before him.
The hedgehog was still vast asleep and was lying on his front, his face turned towards me. His back was heaving gently, his face was calm, he seemed to be in a pretty deep sleep. The thin streams of sunlight seeping through the door curtain highlighted his dark fur just right and...
"Chaos, I need to get out of here." I grumbled as I got up from my cot and left our small cottage to face the morning sun.
I've been here for only two months now, close to three already, with Shadow as my sole companion. It's been a while since I've last seen another mobian. That was all.
Sure, I've already caught myself staring at his, admittedly, perky behind, but I can't actually be infatuated with him, right?
Watching him sleep in the morning is because I like how peaceful he looks doesn't count.
Although I have already admitted to myself just how much I like him on a physical level.
"Up already I see." Shadow's voice reached me and I looked over my shoulder to face him.
"Good morning." The hedgehog greeted me with a slight smile and approached me to watch the rest of the sunrise by my side.
"Morning." I returned the greeting, but unlike Shadow, didn't look back at the horizon.
"As much as I want to return home, you can't deny the beauty this place offers." He stated, smiling at the sunrise.
"Yeah, you can't." I responded, my eyes still glued at him.
I just can't deny how the way the morning light shines on him and makes him look stunning. His sleek black fur and eyes especially.
We stood there for a while, just watching the sun rise in the sky until it was nice and light out.
"I'm-" Shadow spoke up and looked back at me for a moment, only to realise that I had been staring at him for a little while now as I quickly looked away.
His gaze cast downward as he couldn't fight a slight embarrassed heat from warming up his face when knowing he had been stared at without his knowledge. And by his own crush no less.
"I'm going to get our breakfast ready." He continued and quickly left.
I watched him go for just a moment before releasing a sigh and looking back at the horizon again.
I think I have no other choice but to accept it.
I'm falling for Shadow. And I'm falling hard and fast.

But just like we had our fun days, we also had our bad days. Officially three months into our stay, this was one of those days.
"Do you think they'll ever find us?" Shadow asked, his head resting on my shoulder as we sat on the sand beneath this little makeshift roof that we had added above the front of our home.
We were just watching the rain fall and just like this weather managed to make us feel down back home, we didn't feel so good now either.
Shadow couldn't help but start to talk about something to fit our dreary mood. I have to admit it's been on my mind too.
"Well, it's been weeks already. I guess they could come any day now." I wasn't my usual positive self either as I sat next to him, one arm wrapped around his shoulder.
"A few weeks? It's been three months already, Sonic, and still no one and nothing is in sight." He told me, disgruntled.
Yeah, I guess it has been a long time now hasn't it?
"In little over half a year we'll be pronounced dead and the authorities won't be looking for us anymore. What do you think we should do then?" He asked, truthfully stumped as he really did not know how we'd go on.
"I guess we can only keep on surviving. We're not alone, we have eachother. So I'm sure we can make it out of here so long as we stay together." I tried to encourage him, but I don't think it worked as well as I had hoped.
Maybe it was because I wasn't really convinced myself.
It's probably just the bad weather messing with my head.
"I suppose we have no other choice but to stay together. But if we're going to be stuck here for much longer, I'm glad it's you I'm stuck with." He told me, his gaze looking up to settle on mine as I looked back down on him.
I guess that did make me smile, despites knowing that I pretty much had a head start over everyone else.
"I feel the same way. The part about being stuck with myself, of course." At this Shadow could only sell me a playful punch.
"You egotistical jackass." He called me and I chuckled.
"But on a more serious note, I'm glad it's you I'm stuck with too." I decided to admit, giving him my real answer this time. Shadow smiled when I told him that the appreciation was likewise.
Our mood had finally lightened up and we moved closer together to preserve our heat on this chilly, rainy day.

"What the heck, where did he go?" I muttered a couple of days later, I think it's been about a week, walking alongsides the shore that ran nearly completely around the island.
I had left our home at the beach behind me a long while ago and still there was not a single sign of him anywhere! Where could he have run off to?
Pretty much as soon as the rain stopped completely and things were a bit dryer and warmer, Shadow left stating that he wanted to look around for a bit. Since it had been my turn to hunt, I let him go on his own. Shadow can take care of himself, right?
Well, I haven't seen him for hours and I was starting to get worried.
"Shad? Where are you, Shad?" I called for him as I walked, which I have been doing for a while now. I still didn't get an answer.
What if he's hurt for real this time? What if he returned to the lake and drowned for real? Or he got attacked by that big black thing, which was the very reason why we've been avoiding the lake for weeks now.
But Shadow has been showing a big sense of curiosity pretty much for as long as we've been here. What if he did go back just to find that thing?
I didn't get to even decide to go back there when I looked off to the side a little at the rocky surfaces that started appearing on the beach instead of the usual jungle and noticed a cave.
Shadow was standing at its entrance.
Pretty much as soon as I noticed him, the hedgehog looked over his shoulder to see me standing there and waved me over.
"Sonic, get over here!" He yelled. He apparently really wanted to show me something.
With my kind of speed it took about a second to get to him, but instead of seeing the smile I was now used to see whenever he greeted me, Shadow simply turned away and pointed at something.
"Look over there. We weren't the first ones here." He told me and I followed his gaze and finger to see just what he was frowning at.
The two remains of people who died here a long time ago.
"As if the clothing wasn't already a giveway, I'd say we're looking at a man and a woman. Probably human judging by the smaller eye sockets in the skull." Shadow walked closer to the deceased pair who still sat huddled together.
They've been here for so long that only clothing and bone remained.
Call me a wuz, but I had to turn away to instead look at their belongings.
It didn't look like they had it bad in here. They had a chest with clothing in and blankets, a few personal belongings, even a water damaged painting and carpet! They looked like they had made this cave their home away from home, just like Shadow and I had made our fancy little place.
I felt a hand rest on my upper back and looked down to see a pair of ruby eyes look back in worry, silently wondering if I was okay.
"How long do you think they've been stuck here?" I asked, moving my gaze back to the belongings of the deceased. Shadow did the same.
"I have no idea, there's no telling without modern equipment or a degree for that matter. And there's no telling just what killed them either. It could be disease, injury, starvation, -" He only answered my question and elaborated a bit on the matter, but I wasn't so keen on listening.
"Shad, let's just get out of here." I cut him off, but Shadow didn't seem to mind and only followed me when I exited the cave.
I have never seen an actual dead body before, let alone two at the same time. I felt a little sick to my stomach, even if all that was left were bones.
Shadow walked by my side as we made our way back to camp, an expression of worry barely hidden, but he didn't talk.
He had a very clear idea what I was upset about and it wasn't just seeing dead people for the first time that bothered me. He wasn't sure if he should speak up about it or not, but as I didn't say a single word all the way back and entered our home, he could't help but call me back.
"Yeah?" I said, still holding the palm leaves of our door to the side as I glanced back at him.
"That's not going to happen to us." Shadow spoke up, grabbing my hand and pulling me closer, making me let go of our door curtain.
"Are you kidding me, of course not! You're immortal and I'm too awesome!" I laughed his words off, causing his frown to grow slightly deeper.
"You're not fooling anyone, Hedgehog." He said and the expression he gave me made it hard not to come clean.
I sighed. How was he doing this to me?
"Okay, so I may have worried about you ending up all alone on this island. Like if something were to happen to me and rescue won't come. I know you hate being by yourself. I don't even want to think about what could happen to you then." I came clean about what was really worrying me and Shadow could only look at me in surprise.
"You're that concerned for me?" He asked and the face he showed was something that I couldn't really place.
"Well, yeah, I like you." The words were out before I realised it, but when I did, I could only stare at him in shock like he stared back at me, speechless.
Like this a couple of awkward moments passed by.
Had I really just said that to him?
"You know what, I'm hungry. You want a bite?" I asked and felt my stomach growl right on cue before I disappeared into our home, leaving Shadow outside to wonder just what he had heard.

I don't know exactly when I had fallen asleep, but when I woke back up the next morning it was to the amazing scent of fried eggs.
With that delicious smell filling my nose, I rolled onto my back and groaned.
"Don't tell me Tails got up earlier again." I sighed in annoyence as I slowly woke up, wondering just what was so important that Tails decided to get up early today.
Dangit, I hated it when he did that. Weither he was 14 years old now or not.
"No, no Tails here. Just me." Upon hearing the voice I opened my eyes and looked towards the door to see Shadow standing there in the doorway, the door curtain of our leafy cottag pushed to the side.
He must've come to check up on me when he suddenly heard me talking to myself.
"Shad? Hey!" I greeted him as I sat up on my cot.
I don't know why I thought I was back home again, but I had to actually see my one friend around to remember what situation I've been living in these past three months and a half.
"You looked like you were dreaming. What was it about?" He asked, leaning carefully against the frame.
"I dunno, I got all distracted by this smell and forgot. Is that really fried egg?" I asked, scratching the back of my head.
"Why don't you come see for yourself?" The hedgehog asked and I was pretty much instantly up on my feet and out the door. Probably even faster than him!
My nose wasn't lying to me! Shad really was frying two eggs! and he was doing it on a hot rock above a fire!
"You are amazing, you know that?!" I told him, grabbing him by his shoulders.
After a long, long time of only fish and fruit, these eggs were Chaos sent!
"Yes, I know. Now get your ass down so I can get them off the fire." Shadow said and I let go off him so he could go down to his knees.
"Now dig in." He practically ordered me as I sat down next to him and got that hot stone he offered to me with a few layers of leaves to grab onto.
"You're not going to eat?" I asked as I took it. I was grateful, but I'd hate to eat it alone if he hadn't had anything yet.
"I did actually, but not eggs. These were the first two that I found here. And if you're wondering, no, they weren't fertilized. They came from a nest of three and only one had a bird inside, I checked." Shadow told me, clicking his flashlight on and off.
Oh yeah, Shadow had also nabbed a flashlight along before he left just in case and we've been trying to save the batteries, using them only for emergencies. Like when our fire dies at night and that's when we need it burning constantly. Not for warmth, but to ward off any predators.
We have been lucky enough to avoid them so far and we'd like to keep it that way.
"So you left this luxurious food for me? What's the occasion? My birthday?" I asked, one eyebrow raised. It wasn't June yet, right?
"It's just... Nevermind, it'll sound dumb." Shadow brushed my question off, but I was curious.
"No, come on, tell me." I insisted as I started on the fried eggs using Shadow's knife, which he would sterilise later on, eager to hear the occasion.
Shadow looked at me thoughtfully, a slight frown appeared on his muzzle. He seemed to contemplate if he should really tell me or not.
"You said you liked me." He decided to come clean.
I looked at him in confusion for a moment before I realised that I really did say that to him just yesterday and I hadn't taken it back.
"You don't have to say anything and I don't expect anything either. It just felt good to hear you say that and I wanted to show my appreciation." He said and looked away as if he felt embarrassed.
Well, I guess the gesture was a bit cheesy.
I stopped eating for a second and wrapped an arm around the hedgehog's shoulder in order to pull him closer. Shadow didn't move away and instead gladly scooted closer, sighing lightly in content.
I haven't realised it before, but ever since he pulled his first move two months ago during our first storm, he's become a lot more open about his feelings. He's pretty much splaying them out for the whole population of two to see.
That's good, I'm happy for him. For a long time it has looked like he was emotionally constipated. To see him so open with his feelings, in his own way, was a good thing to see.
But my own feelings... I haven't really figured that out yet.
"Sonic, let's go exploring later." Shadow told me and unlike last time when he found that cave, I was actually looking forward to it.

We were so deep in the jungle now. I mean, geez, I know Shadow said he wanted to go exploring but last time he was content with just staying relatively close to the beach.
Now we were so far into the jungle that it was even hard to walk through. And we didn't exactly have a machete with us. Just Shadow's army knife that was kind of pathetic in this kind of situation.
It was useful and all, but with all these vines, thick branches, and whatever to fight our way through, that knife couldn't really help us much. Or at all.
"Don't diss the knife, Hedgehog!" Shadow hissed as I spoke those words out loud and found him nonchalantly pointing the thing towards me to remind me of exactly how sharp he's been keeping that thing.
Geez, talk about sensitive.
"Let me guess, it's not the size that matters?" I asked and couldn't fight the teasing grin from appearing.
"Exactly! And obviously my tool is bigger than yours." Shadow quickly caught on and retorted as he looked at me from over his shoulder briefly.
He kind of looked like he was flaunting his body with the way he looked back at me like that, just over his shoulder while he stepping on and over this big rock. And I'm not entirely sure he was aware of that.
Or was I just seeing it that way?
"Oh, really? Want me to show you exactly how big I can be?" I quickly caught up to him, pretty much inches behind him, our bodies nearly touching.
"I certainly wouldn't mind! If you dare, that is!" Shadow spoke and then we could only stare at eachother as we realised where this conversation had quickly lead us to.
Suddenly embarrassed, Shadow walked up ahead in a faster pace, as if trying to outrun the situation. I couldn't help but share some of that feeling.
It was rare to see that hedgehog feel so awkward and he stubbornly tried to stay ahead of me and avoid the embarrassing situation we had unwittingly created. Innuendoes affected him more than I would've thought. It was kind of funny and I will definitely keep that in the back of my mind.
"Shad, wait up. I can't exactly speed up to you without getting caught in these vines." I chuckled inwardly, liking all of these new sides I was seeing to Shadow since getting here.
An embarrassed side, a caring and almost nurturing side, a flirty side... I'm kinda excited to know what else I'm gonna find out about him.
When he suddenly came to a halt up ahead again and seemed to be looking at something, I quickly caught up to him, making sure I didn't trip like an idiot over a root again like I did a couple of days ago and give Shadow enough reason to taunt me endlessly.
I stood behind him and looked at what must've caught his attention, something that was admittedly easy because of Shadz's short size. I was curious to know just what surprised him.
My gaze fell on it and I noticed that it was a cave in the side of a cliff that he was looking at, a pretty dark and big one at that.
As one of my hands landed on Shad's shoulder, the hedgehog looked up to me for a moment before looking back up ahead.
"Do you want to check it out?" He asked, that glint of curiosity that I've grown so used to seeing present once more in his ruby eyes.
Well, can't say no to that, can I?
"Sure." I agreed and in an instant Shadow was off again, heading towards the cave entrance.
Of course, I quickly followed and as the vines cleared a little, it was easier to join him by his side as he paused for another moment. Noticing him fumbling with a flashlight still in working condition hanging from his belt, I knew the question burning his mind.
"Want to go inside and use what little battery we have left?" I asked, knowing it was on his mind too. But just like I knew that question, we also both knew the answer.
Letting go of the flashlight, he turned to grab a fallen branch instead and ripped out some long dried grass to wrap it around one end.
"No, we might need those batteries for something else." Shadow responded and went to his knees to quickly create a spark with a half-formed Chaos Spear for a makeshift torch.
With that fire now illuminating us both, we entered the cave. We weren't sure what we were going to find in there, probably nothing new, but still we were kinda curious to find out.
The cave entrance was only just out of sight when we came upon a parting in the long corridor we had been walking through and suddenly we were forced to make a choice if we wanted to keep on exploring.
"You know, if we take this date to a less dank place, I could totally check one path out for you." I spoke up, nudging Shadow with my elbow.
From hearing the word 'date', I could hear a huff leave his lips and his gaze get cast downwards for a moment, apparently liking the statement.
"Be my guest. You can choose where we'll go next." He told me, turning to face me and hand me the torch. He didn't mind spending some time in darkness for those couple of seconds it would take for me to explore this entire cave system.
"It's a deal!" I grabbed the torch from him and off I was, leaving Shad in the shadows.
As I ran, I was careful to make sure my light wouldn't go out as I explored the rest of this cave for him.
There wasn't all that much else to this place. There was some moss, some insects and spiders that I'm sure Shadow would love with his fear for any creepy crawleys! You couldn't find them onboard the Ark with their strict health protocols. So during his childhood insects and spiders of any kind were but nightmare fuel in whatever horror movie Maria managed to watch with him behind her grandfather's back.
There was some water dripping down the ceiling too, which I think Shadow told me was from either a river flowing above us, a lake, or just rain. That's what Shad told me, that is.
Before long this hallway came to an end and I came upon what looked like a big room with stalagmites and stalactites. A little bit further the floor suddenly slanted downwards and water filled that space. Moving the torch, I noticed that the light reflected on water up ahead and noticed that there was some of it streaming down from the cracks through the cave wall.
The pond of water also reflected the light, but somehow that just emphasized the sheer darkness down there and I felt my heart pounding in my chest from just looking at the body of water.
Maybe it's time I turn around and tell Shadow that there's nothing interesting here. Otherwise, knowing him, he'd want to dive right in weither he has light in there or not. And I'm not up for a second heart attack!
So I turned around to run all the way back to the other hedgehog, but as I did so, a muffled noise that sounded almost like an explosion came out of nowhere and the whole cave system suddenly rumbled all around me and for a frightful moment I was scared that it might come collapsing down on top me.
For a moment did I think my friend might end up stranded all alone anyway.
But that small blast... Was that Shadow?
I don't know why I felt panic grip my heart in an icy hold. Much like I thought I had lost him at that lake, or the thought of him staying behind all alone on this island, believing something must've happened to him just now made this feeling well up in my chest that I wasn't at all used to.
In hurry did I speed back to where I knew him to be, risking losing the torch in the process. As if by miracle I didn't lose my light and found Shadow there waiting for me.
"Shad, there you are! What was that blast all about?" I asked as I thought he was okay at first, a sigh of relief even left my lungs, but then I noticed he was hunching over, holding a hand to his abdomen.
He was seeking support with the nearby wall and didn't answer to my question. It sounded like he was breathing a bit heavily, like he was in pain and that worried me.
"Shad? Talk to me, what's wrong?" I asked, walking closer and laying a hand on his shoulder. It caused him to draw away from me, something I wasn't used to get from him these past three months.
Why was he suddenly shrugging my worry away?
"Shadow-"
"I'm fine. Just ran into some trouble, but I'm fine." He cut me off, gasping when he tried to face me.
Okay, I wanted to know just what the heck was up with him.
So grabbing his shoulder, I turned him around to face me and noticed a dark splotch of red on his grey t-shirt.
"You're bleeding?!" Dropping the torch, I pulled his hand away and pulled his shirt up to look at the damage.
"Sonic, wait, don't-" I didn't let him stop me.
Shadow's fur, because of how dark it was, never showed any bruising, but this one was so big and dark that it was even visible through his colour of pelt in this dim light of fire. Whatever had hit him there, it hit him hard enough to cause such a painful discolouration and even broke the skin, which is where that small spot of blood came from.
"Shadow, What-"
"Stop getting so worried! Sonic, I'm the Ultimate Lifeform and no uninhabited island is going to change that! I don't know why you're getting so worked up every time you think something's wrong with me, but stop it." He scolded me, pulling his shirt down and taking a good step away from me.
Just what was he saying? That I had to stop worrying?
"I was just in the process of healing myself. You know it takes a lot of Chaos energy out of me that I can't replenish so easily without an emerald. That's why I couldn't immediately answer. Sonic, I'm fine." Shadow spelled it out for me, felt like he had to.
"Why would you feel so worried about me that you'd blatantly ignore what you're already supposed to know for years already?" He asked, genuinely curious.
That's a good question, actually. Why would I feel so much concern when I'm supposed to know better?
Is it because of those feelings I've been having lately? Those that I don't really want to confront?
"Eh, no reason." I claimed instead of giving him a good answer, shrugging too casually.
Shadow was smart, too smart, for my own good and he used those brain cells to easily figure out what was bothering me after the talk we had not long ago. But for my sake, he played along.
"Well, if you must know, we weren't alone in here. I heard some noise in the dark and when I summoned a Chaos Spear to light my surroundings for a moment, I came face to face with an enormous boar. It got startled and ran right into me on its way out." He came clean about the situation that got him that injury, feeling slightly embarrassed about being the Ultimate Lifeform who got his ass handed to him by a wild animal.
So a boar was the one that did this? Just a boar?
"Than what was that explosion I heard?" I asked as that wasn't something Shadow had explained to me.
"Well... I didn't just startle the boar, but it also startled me. So when I held that Chaos Spear and saw the thing..." He had been a little hesitant to answer, but even more reluctant to finish and I could see why.
I snorted in amusement at the thought, although that could've also been caused by my adrenaline fading away.
Shadow seemed to forget his embarrassment and smiled ever so slightly now that the mood was a little lighter again.
"Sonic." He started, grabbing my hand. Shad was somehow being a little tender upon discovering just how much I apparently care and worry for him. It was having quite an affect on him.
"How about we return home? Or to our home away from home." He suggested and for once I couldn't agree more to put this exploration excursion on hold.
We could resume it once Shadow has fully healed.
Preferably not, though. Healed or not, I don't want to follow him into that dark, deep, and threatening underground lake. No way!
Keeping a tight grip on my hand, Shadow Chaos controlled us back to our camp.

Eventually the sun started setting and my dark companion cooked up some more fish for us to eat for dinner, but he didn't just bake it above a fire like he usually would. He's been getting a bit creative lately and was making a soup from some of the safest ingredients we could find from the explored parts of our island.
I can't say I was ever really fond of soup, I prefered the more spicy kinds of food, but I don't think I've longed for this recepy this much before today. It's been five months of nothing but fish and fruit, so if this liquid wasn't just as valuable and gold right now, than I didn't know what was.
A light sigh left Shadow, but it wasn't out of annoyence. The hedgehog noticed how I had been watching him prepare the meal expectantly, eager to have a taste already. It sounded like he was amused, something that he's been feeling a lot lately despites the circumstances.
"Don't worry, I think it's about done." He answered before I even got to ask him the question. Because of it, a smile couldn't help but tug the corners of my lips upwards.
"Awesome, I'm starving!" As if on cue with my words, I heard my stomach growl from hunger, which earned myself a soft chuckle from the other.
It was a light metal and deep bowl that Shadow was making the soup in. It was found amongst the stuff of the skeletal couple we had found a little while back.
Grave robbing wasn't exactly our favourite way of passing our free-time, here or on Mainland, but all the stuff was just lying there and Shadow believed it was a good idea to use any and all materials at our disposal. It'd be a shame to let all of that stuff just lie there and rot away otherwise.
Using a clean handkerchief he had found in our salvaged stuff, he protected his hands as he grabbed the bowl with hurry and got it off the fire, muttering something about trying to find a way to make this easier to handle.
"Just a question, but how exactly are we going to eat this?" I asked, clueless as I don't really know if we had spoons or not. Unless Shadow found silverware when I wasn't looking. That'd be nice if he did.
"Well..." His voice trailed off before he even started a proper sentence and he suddenly pulled out two bowls made out of... coconut halves? Really?
"I've been working on these for little over a week now, but turns out carving isn't quite my strong suit. With hands that usually destroy, it's apparently difficult to create." He said almost dismissively, like he didn't want to talk about the process that lead to these two.
As he filled in one bowl with the soup to hand over to me, something clicked in place in my mind and with a laugh I spoke up.
"So that's why you've been feeding me coconut all week!" All of a sudden that finally made sense.
Now knowing that I would be talking about it anyway, Shadow let out a deep sigh. This time, it was out of annoyence.
"Yes, I've been working on a few sideprojects while you were either out collecting wood, hunting, or sleeping. For the Fastest Thing Alive you're quite slow and that gave me enough time to work on them." He explained, handing over my meal for tonight.
"And fail at them too?" Letting that comment slide for now, I teased him back with a knowing look.
He huffed.
"I'm not going to answer that and I certainly won't refer to the disturbing pile of coconut shells lying somewhere hidden in a ditch behind our hut." Though feeling embarrassed with his failed attempts at crafting, he still managed to slip a joke in.
I just might be rubbing off on him.
Another laugh broke out and Shadow shot me a small smile as he poured some soup out for himself too.
"Made any attempts at spoons too?" I asked and this time he had to shake his head.
"I'm just happy to have finally finished these coconut bowls." He told me in what could only be described in a defeated kind of way.
A final chuckle left my vocals before I turned my attention to my meal. Or that's what I wanted to before I realised that it's probably a bit too hot right now. I mean, it did just get off the fire.
But I didn't strike up another conversation, though I was never the type of guy to stay silent for longer than a minute unless I was asleep. Instead I found myself thinking about these feelings I've been having, driven even further when my gaze met Shadow and the smile he was wearing.
It was small, just enough to be visible on his muzzle, one only spotted by someone who knew him as well as I did, as he sat there on his knees with his own bowl resting in his lap. Just like me, he was waiting for the soup to cool down a little. Meanwhile a hand came to rest where that ugly bruise and that small blotch of blood was.
Though the wound is still there, I'm sure it's already healed considerably since we left that cave. By tomorrow, unless Shad decides to use his new healing powers, not a trace should be left of that wild boar he nearly roasted.
Pain was obviously not on his mind, it'd be a bit weird if that was what he was smiling about, so what was?
And just why was I so curious?
I knew I liked Shadow, that was something I just could not ignore anymore, but maybe there was more going on than I realised?
"Sonic."
His voice coming out of nowhere caught me off guard as I stared at the fire in front of me. Startled, I quickly looked to my side to find Shadow sitting right next to me all of a sudden, wearing an expression I couldn't really read.
"Shadow-"
"Hedgehog, I was never really sure when I should be telling you this. I wasn't even sure if I would ever tell you this. But to see you so concerned for my well being lately, to see you care so much, I find myself unable to keep this a secret for much longer." What is Shadow trying to say? Is this it? Is this the moment Rouge and I have been waiting for?
I was prepared for it. Well, I used to be. But now?
Why is my heart suddenly beating faster in my chest? I can feel the organ pounding inside just listening to his words.
I knew I liked him. That's what the unbearable thought of him spending his life all alone on this island made me realise. But these past couple of months spend with solely him just might've made me feel a bit more than just 'like' for him.
Somehow, that was making this moment a lot more difficult than it needed to be.
"Sonic, I..." His voice trailed off then, like he suddenly lost his nerve and decided against coming clean.
Shad, why'd you suddenly stop?
Apparently I wasn't ready anymore, not now that I realised I actually felt something more than just friendship for him, but I didn't want him to stop either.
"Thank you for caring." Shadow drew away, shuffling to sit a little farther away from me, a full bowl of soup still in hand.
Is he chickening out? Is that even a word he was familiar with?
The defeated look in his eyes he tried to hide spoke volumes. Now that we knew eachother so well, putting up a mask and hiding what he felt suddenly wasn't possible anymore, though he tried.
"Uh, sure. That's what friends are for, right?"
He winced almost unnoticeably, but said nothing else. Shad didn't touch his own homemade soup either.
Turns out Shadow, the Ultimate Lifeform himself, didn't have the guts to confess his true feelings.
Turns out I didn't either.

It's amazing! You MUST release it on fanfic site! It's really good! A well building plot! Not sure how many times I smiled throughout reading it. It's so cute and i absolutely love it. In fact a lot of ur stories should be there. It's like a gold mine! Good job I am tuned to read the incoming ones and I am so glad I voted for the Island :)

I actually do have stories up on FF.Net. Just not those that I upload here on Inkbunny. :'D
But since there won't be too graphic imagery in this fic, I do think I can consider putting this fic on that account too.
That will probably mean putting it on DA too, though. XD

Yeah I guess some isn't that suitable for fanfic?? I don't know how much dirty tolerance ppl have on fanfic. But just thinking about it. Some is downright adultish! I wouldn't recommend putting all the gems u have here on Fanfic.
But The island deserve to be on fanfic honestly. But that's ofc up to u:)

I have seen some very adult content on FF.Net, but there's also the problem that these chapters are quite long. I'm not sure weither or not people are willing to read something that long on FF.Net. On Inkbunny you have those pages to help navigate such long chapters or one-shots.
BlazePyro

Perhaps you can split it then? Personally I'd read it regardless length! But I understand the problem ur speaking of. I'd say cutting it in the right spots would work. But the island isn't really a one shot soooo....u can make plenty of cliffhangers with this chapter. Like...where shadow disappear in the water or when sonic head a explosion meaning something happened to shadow! Stuff like that. Then also ready to post it slowly and not the whole as u already made. To get the feel of cliffhanger. Unless they find the whole on inkbunny! But I wouldn't count on it. :p

There are downright dirty ones FF. So yeah I really think it's fine.

Very true and 'The Island' is actually very tame compared to those story. Should I split it up into smaller chapters, I think I just might upload it onto DA and FF.Net.

You should!! Needs more attention ^^
BlazePyro

Yay you posted it! I only fav it since ur already on my author alert. It's annoying to get two messages of the same update :p glad u released it. I think u shouldn't say shadow is OOC in author note. Since that makes me think the worst as a reader. And so far I find his personality valid. Let the reader judge it. Some warnings is spoilers or turn downs. Just be aware of that. Still! I hope it get the attention it deserve.^^
SonadowKokoro100

Well, people often do need to be warned, especially when it comes to things like Mpreg. Some people get pissed very easily. XD
But I can remove the warning about Shadow being out of character. ^^
BlazePyro

Fair enough, I like that ppl warn about things like that yeah. Mpreg is fine, Though it's not technically male preg but a herm preg!

Lol! Then let me be the person who is the exception! When I got the notice of the new story obviously I had to go and read it! And when she had made mention that it was only 1 part of 3 from a longer chapter on inkbunny, you can be damn sure I hurried my ass over here to read the rest! Yeah I'm totally one of those people who knows that an author probobly has the same story on another site that they quite possibly have more of on said other site! Also I can tell you that many readers over on ff.net really do (myself included) love really long chapters! Though obviously there are those who do not but whatever. And yeah, there are lots of hardcore stories on ff.net as I have read many of them and they are recieved really well.
BlazePyro

Well! I think she revealed it on the fanfic? That it was more on inkbunny. So now it doesn't count anymore :p I would aswell go to inkbunny to read the rest if I were you. I read on my phone mostly so longer stories are fine. I can't really read from a computer anymore....so much text that I get confused at times of where I was. Plus it's more comfortable with phone. ^^

But yes there is plenty of ppl that like it longer than shorter. Me being one of them....

Yay a new chapter! I really enjoyed this chapter, the way Sonic and Shadow are growing closer together was really nice! ^^
If only one of them had to guts to admit their feelings for each other! XP but I'm sure it wont be long until one of them admits their feelings ^w^ Good thing Sonic has Shadow to take care of him and make him food XD
I can't wait for the next chapter to see what happens!

I'm really glad you enjoyed it! ^^
Yeah, now one of them just has to find the courage to confess their feelings to eachother. XD So yes, good thing Sonic has Shadow taking care of him, especially in the next chapter. ;D

After a long days work I was glad to see this waiting for me when I got home. A great continuation to the story, and I eagerly await the next chapter of these two's time alone together on the island. Also as an aside I bet shadow feels worse just cause sonic did say he liked him, even if he may not know to what extent sonic likes him.
SonadowKokoro100

I'm glad you like it and I hope the next chapter will be just as good! ^^
And yeah, Shadow could quite possibly feel worse than Sonic because of the reply he got, despites hearing him state that he did like him back. ^^;
Now only the next chapter can tell what'll happen as these two hormonal hedgehogs spend their time on this Island all by themselves. >u>

Read the first part you posted on ff when I got the notice and saw that you said that the full chapter was over here so obveously came to read it all! I love it! Nice bits of suspense, still wondering about that thing that they saw in the underwater cave in that lake... really hope that one or both of them get up the courage to confess their feelings to each other soon! Poor Shadow, I know he was hurt by Sonic saying "...what friends are for." And I bet Sonic knows that he hurt Shadow! He better fix it! Can't wait till you update the next chapter!

Yeah, I was kind of under the impression that read such long chapters would difficult on site such as FF.Net and DA. So I decided to break the chapter up in parts. It seemed easier that way. ^^
You are actually the very first person to mention the cave creature! XD
And yes, hopefully they will soon confess their feelings for eachother. Sonic especially. He does have a thing or two to make-up for in chapter 3. ^^;
And thank you very much for taking the time to review on FF.Net too! X3
