Sonictober Day 3 - AU - Soulmate - Sonilver
In this world where, one can't not see colors until they meet their soulmate and see the world together. Such a thing was unlikely for Silver, living in such a devastated future, he honestly rather not see anything all if he had to see this everyday... Until he met him, Sonic, he was suddenly filled with hope and so much joy fighting and being beside him. But it always saddens the white hedgehog each time he had to go back to his future, a future where he wasn't in it. Where he didn't even exist anymore. It pained Silver, until one day his fellow friend Blaze suggested that he could just stay with Sonic and the rest and visit the future from time to time. That idea was the most amazing one yet which Silver is still grateful up to this date and did just that.
They settled to live on the present, a place he started to love and couldn't wait to see the colors of the same. Blaze has told me so many stories of who the world looks full of colors and he would get excited each day. Silver started to pursue Sonic but is kind of awkward since he wasn't too sure of what to do so he thought the simplest way was spending time with him whenever he spotted the blue speedster alone.
``Hey, Sonic!'' Silver greeted to the blue blur when he spotted him from above. Flying down to Sonic's level as he flew beside him, easily catching up with his speed.
``Oh, Silver! How you are doing?'' Sonic smiled when he saw Silver beside him, not slowing down his running, that made Silver's heart skip a beat and blushed lightly. God, his smile was just gorgeous.
``A-All good here! And you? Where you are heading?'' Silver asked
``Don't know.'' Sonic shrugged. ``I just having my usual morning runs around the towns and fields. Whenever the wind takes me. Wanna join?'' He asked with a big grin
``Sure!'' Silver instantly agreed, the more time he could spend with Sonic the better
They started a friendly race midway their running, Sonic winning but Silver being closed second. Sonic suggested to take a break, so they walked over a nearby Chao Gardens as a resting spot. Silver playing with the little ones as he made shapes with the flowers and water using his powers. Silver saw Sonic sitting in the small patch of flowers making flower crowns and necklaces for the little guys. Which left Silver with the impression of how caring the blue blur was. He was too dazed dreaming about Sonic that he felt some hands over his head and something being placed.
``Huh?'' Silver touched his head and move over to the reflection of the water. It was a flower crown.
``It suits you!'' Sonic said with a grin, he was also wearing one. ``Wish I could see what colors I picked for you. Hehehe.'' He rubbed his nose
``I love it...'' Silver smiled back with a blush. ``Thanks.'' Silver activated his powers as he took a bubble of water and shaped it into the iconic Sonic symbol, the Chaos squeed at seeing it.
``Ohoho. Impressive! What else can you do?'' Sonic sat down in front of Silver, the Chaos bundling around him as well.
``Let's see now.'' Silver smiled as he moved his hands and made the ship of a small Classic Sonic. Sonic chuckled at seeing it, he missed the little guy.
``How about this...?'' Silver said shyly as he spelled out with the water, ``I like you''.
``!!!'' Sonic widen his eyes, surprised and blush spreading on his face. He rubbed the back of his quills and he laughed nervously. ``This is embarrassing...'' He said
``Aaah... I'm so sorry! I just-'' Silver got nervous and the shaped of the letters started to rumble and slashed down in the ground, but still kept talking. ``Bu-but I have always fe-felt about you and I just- wanted to let you know...'' He bowed his head feeling the anxiety eating out his stomach
``Follow me...'' Sonic said after a moment of silence between the two. He stood up and grabbed Silver's hand, starting to run in a speed Silver could keep up.
``Wai-wait! Where are we going?!'' Silver asked completely confused yet surprised
``You'll see.'' Sonic simply answered
They reached Seaside Hill, the soft sand, the small waves at the moving back and forth, and then the sun setting at the horizon. Sonic intertwined his fingers with Silver's and faced him.
``I... I also fe-feel the same, Silver. I like like you too.'' He rubbed his quills with his free hand and blushing
``No way...'' Silver widen his eyes, unsure of what to say. ``Since when?!''
``Maybe since... the start? I don't know, I just know I was looking at you more and it would ache each time you would leave... I thought something was wrong, but it made sense later. And then you decided to stay, and it made me really happy.'' He confessed with a small smile
``I-I feel the same way, Sonic! I stayed here because of you!'' Silver shouted as his face heated up. ``I-I wanna be with you, and-and if I'm the one you get to see a colorful world with- I-I would be the happiest mobian alive!''
``Same here.'' Sonic smiled lovingly at Silver
Silver could feel his eyes water but in that same moment all the color grey he was so used at seeing was slowly fading and taking color. Silver looked around shocked he could see the white sand, the blue sea, the bright yellow sun slowly setting and then he looked at Sonic. He was blue with bright green eyes, he was more beautiful that he had imagined. Silver had made so many mental pictures of what color Sonic was, what color were his eyes and even his shoes. And he was just stunning. He couldn't help the tears from streaming down his face, he was finally seeing the colorful world he was told so much about, he was seeing it with his soulmate.
``Would you look at that, the bellflowers suit you...'' Sonic said in a sobbed toned, cupping Silver's cheek. ``The flower crown looks great, you are prettier than I ever thought.'' Sonic cried happily
``The same for you.'' Silver cracked up as he nuzzled Sonic's face. ``Blue is definitely your color.''
They looked as the sun set the colors in the sky shifting to night ones, they lean to one of another. Hands held and nuzzled each other's face from time to time.
``Can our dates end here all the time? Because this my favorite place now.'' Silver asked in a soft voice
``Always...'' Sonic answered in a loving tone and kissed Silver's cheek
