Chapter 6 - The Embarrassment Continues
“Please please don’t tell your mom!” Tails pleaded with Cream as he was on the verge of tears.
Cream just stood there for a second trying to absorb what was going on. “Oh, don’t worry I won’t!”
“Oh thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!” Tails said falling to his knees. “Wait, you’re not going to use this to blackmail me are you?” Tails asked getting worried again.
“WHAT?! No! I would never do that to you, or anyone!” Cream said reassuring Tails.
“Oh thank god.” Tails said putting his hand on his chest.
“Look, I’m not gonna ask any questions about, well, anything. So, I’m just gonna go back upstairs, pretend like none of this happened, and keep this between us, okay?” Cream said as Tails got back up.
“Wait, I don’t want this to make things between us awkward.” Tails said before Cream could turn around. “So, I’ll just tell you instead.”
For the next 10 minutes, Tails told Cream everything.
“So, you actually like wearing diapers? And, using them?” Cream said sitting on his bed.
“Yeah, I know it’s really weird. You probably think I’m a freak.” Tails said ashamedly.
Cream giggled a bit. “Actually, I think it’s kinda cute. Especially all the baby stuff.”
“Really? You think this is, cute?” Tails asked motioning to his wet diaper.
Cream gave him a warm smile and handed him the pacifier. “Trust me, I know cute when I see it. I’m all about cute things.”
“You promise you won’t tell anyone?” Tails asked looking at the pacifier in his hand.
“Don’t worry.” Cream said giving Tails a kiss on his cheek. “This will be our little secret.”
Tails blushed as Cream kissed him and stood there baffled as she left his room. He put his hand to the spot where Cream kissed him and shook his head. “Wow, that was unexpected.”
Cream happily hummed and skipped back upstairs and into the living room where her mother was watching a cooking show. She sat down on the nearest continued humming.
“You sure seem happy all of a sudden. Something happen down there?” Vanilla asked her obviously happy daughter.
“Oh nothing, just having a nice talk with Tails.” Cream said happily swinging her legs.
“I’m glad to see you 2 getting along so well, just like when you were little.”
Funny you should mention that. Cream thought to herself and giggled a bit.
“Something funny?” Vanilla asked.
“No, just thought of a funny joke I heard yesterday.”
Tails snapped back into reality and realized just how wet his diaper was. “Jeez, I didn’t realize how soaked this thing was.” Tails said patting his diaper. He took out a fresh diaper, changing supplies, a changing mat, and set everything on the floor. It took a couple minutes and some figuring out, but Tails eventually got himself into a fresh diaper and went back to his game for the rest of the afternoon.
The afternoon went by in a blur and once Tails realized what time it was the sun was already setting. Tails looked at the alarm clock sitting on his nightstand. “6:30 already? Wow today went fast.” He said getting up from his bed. He turned his game off, slipped his pants on, and headed back upstairs to look for something to eat.
“Look who’s still alive!” Vanilla said as she saw Tails’s head coming up the stairs.
“What’re you guys up to?” Tails asked coming up behind the chair where Cream was sitting.
“We were gonna watch a scary movie tonight! You wanna join us?” Cream asked.
“I dunno, I’m not really a fan of scary movies.”
“Come on Tails it’ll be fun, we’ve got plenty of popcorn!” Vanilla said offering him a bowl full of popcorn.
“I guess it wouldn’t hurt, how scary could it be?” Tails said reluctantly sitting next to Vanilla.
“Which movie should we watch, Texas Chainsaw Massacre or Fargo?” Vanilla asked holding up the 2 choices.
“You really don’t have any other options do you?” Tails asked nervously.
“Nope, these were the only 2 we brought. Or, we could watch them both!” Vanilla suggested.
“That’s a great idea!” Cream said.
“You 2 really like scary movies don’t you?”
“You bet, they’re my favorite!” Cream said.
“I never would have guessed.” Tails said getting a sinking feeling in his gut.
“Who’s ready for 3 hours of horror?” Vanilla asked popping in the first movie.
“I am!” Cream yelled.
“I’m not.” Tails mumbled under his breath and pulled a blanket over himself.
For the next 3 hours, Vanilla and Cream eagerly watched the movies as Tails was covering his eyes half the time. Every time Tails did manage to look, it was usually something really scary and resulted in his diaper becoming wetter each and every time. Tails finally got a break once the first movie’s credits began to roll and breathed a sigh of relief.
“I’m gonna hit the bathroom quickly.” Cream said getting out of her chair.
“We’ll wait for you before we start the next movie.” Vanilla said as Cream left the room. “How are you holding up Tails?”
Tails was shaking underneath the blanket and poked his head out. “I-I’m j-just g-great.” Tails said giving Vanilla a nervous grin and a shaky thumbs up.
“You sure? We can stop if you’re not feeling good.”
“No no, don’t let me ruin the fun. Let the show go on.” Tails said pulling the blanket tightly around him.
“If you say so.” Vanilla said changing the DVDs.
“I’m back!” Cream said as the menu for the next movie came up on screen.
“Perfect timing, we were just about to start.” Vanilla said hitting play.
Tails whimpered a bit as the movie title came up, why did his parents have to get such a big TV?
Once the second movie was finished, Vanilla and Cream got up and started cleaning everything up. Tails was still hiding underneath his blanket and didn’t come out until Cream said something.
“You okay Tails? The movie’s over now, you can come out.” Cream said pulling the blanket off of him.
Tails sat there shivering and looked up at Cream. “R-really? I-it’s over now?” Tails asked slowly getting up.
“Yeah, are you sure you’re okay?” Cream asked looking at his crotch. “Did you wet yourself again?” She asked quietly.
“Y-yeah. More than once through both of the movies.”
Cream thought about it for a moment and then made Tails an offer. “Tell you what, why don’t I change your diaper before you go to bed?”
“Really, you’d do that for me?”
“Sure, it’s the least I could do for making you sit through those movies.” Cream said taking Tails by the hand.
“Thanks Cream.” Tails blushed as she led him to his room.
Cream led Tails into his room and turned the light on, all of the changing supplies and mat were in the same place as they had been when Tails had changed himself earlier. “Looks like everything’s all set up and ready to go.”
“Yeah, I forgot to put everything away.” Tails said pulling his pants and shirt off. He waddled into his closet and pulled his yellow sleeper off of the hanger.
“Where do you keep your diapers?” Cream asked as Tails laid the sleeper next to the mat.
“They’re in here.” Tails said opening the drawer on his nightstand. “And the diaper pail is over there.”
“Thanks.” Cream said picking a diaper from the top of the pile. “Wow, these are really thick! How can you walk in these things?”
“They’re not too bad until they get wet, then it’s pretty hard not to waddle.” Tails said getting himself onto the changing mat. “You sure you know how to do this?”
“Of course I do! I’ve changed plenty of babies’ diapers before, so it’ll pretty much be the same thing, only bigger.” Cream said confidently.
“And a lot more awkward on both ends.” Tails said as Cream started to undo the tapes of the diaper.
“Phew, you’re more than just wet Tails!” Cream said as she opened the front of the diaper.
“Sorry about that, hard to keep track of what goes on down there when you can’t control it.”
“That’s okay, not like you can help it.” She said undoing the tail flap and moving his tails out of the way. “Do you think you could lift your legs and bottom up a bit? I don’t think I could lift you all by myself.”
“Sure thing.” Tails said using his hands to lift himself as Cream held his legs in the air.
“Thank you.” She said pulling the diaper out from underneath him. “Now to get you all cleaned up down there.” Cream said balling up the diaper and threw it into the diaper pail. She grabbed a couple baby wipes and started cleaning him up.
“Ugh, finally some air down there.” Tails said as Cream wiped him off.
Cream opened up the fresh diaper and slid it under Tails’s bottom. “Your bottom looks a little red Tails, does it hurt at all?”
“A little, why?”
“Hmm, I think you might have a little diaper rash from sitting in that messy diaper for a couple hours. You’ve got rash cream don’t you?”
“Yeah, it’s in that tube next to you.”
Cream squirted some of the cream onto her hands and rubbed it into Tails’s bottom. “Does that feel better?”
“It feels nice.”
Cream smiled and applied some baby powder . A little of the powder got into Tails’s nose causing him to sneeze cutely. Cream giggled as Tails blushed and fitted the last tape in place. “And there we go, all done!”
Tails got up and brushed the excess powder off of him and picked up his sleeper. “You think you could help me into this too?”
“Sure, sit on the bed.”
Tails sat on the edge of his bed and Cream slid his legs and arms into the sleeper. Tails stood back up and Cream pulled the zipper all the way up his back.
“There you go Tails.” She said giving him the same warm smile that Vanilla always did.
“Thanks Cream, I really owe you one.” Tails said returning the favor from earlier and kissed Cream’s cheek.
“Oh,” Cream said blushing, “i-it’s nothing really. It’s just in my nature to help out a friend.”
“Good night Cream.” Tails said as she left his room.
“Sleep tight, baby Tails.” Cream said closing his door.
Tails blushed as she closed the door and picked up his pacifier. He popped it into his mouth and climbed into bed sucking on it.
For the next half an hour, Tails tossed and turned but just couldn’t fall asleep. He still had the scary movies on his mind. He got back up and started digging through his closet frantically looking for something. “There it is!” Tails said as he pulled out an old fox plushie he had for longer than he could remember. He hugged it tightly and went back to bed hoping it would help him fall asleep. Eventually, tiredness got the better of him and he pulled the covers over his head and slowly fell asleep.
Sometime in the middle of the night, Tails snapped awake sweating and panting. He looked at his clock, it read 1:30 in the morning. He hugged his plushie tightly and whimpered a little, the rainstorm that was forecasted for last night was a day late and he could hear the rain pelting his window. He was still really tired, but he grabbed his plushie and pillow and got out of bed. He slowly waddled up the stairs and stopped briefly once he reached the top. He let out a small whimper as he heard a soft boom of thunder in the distance. He sucked on his pacifier for comfort and kept waddling towards his parents’ bedroom. He opened the door to the bedroom and slowly tiptoed over to the edge of the bed. Vanilla was sound asleep and Tails hated the thought of waking her up, he was sure she wouldn’t mind, but still. He didn’t want her to find out about his baby side, but he was really scared right now. Tails swallowed the lump in his throat and softly shook her arm.
“Vaniwwa. Vaniwwa wake up.”
Vanilla stirred a little bit. “Cream sweetie, is that you?”
“It’s me, Taiws.”
“Tails?” Vanilla asked rubbing her eyes and turned the lamp on.
Tails stood there holding a plushie in one hand and a pillow in the other. He was constantly sucking on his pacifier and his eyes were full of fear.
“What’s wrong honey?” Vanilla asked sitting up.
“I had a bad dweam, can I sweep wif you?”
Vanilla was too tired to ask about the footie pajamas and the pacifier. “Of course you can.” She scooted over and made room for Tails.
“Tank you Vaniwwa.” Tails said sleepily as he climbed into bed with her. He snuggled closely to his plushie and fell asleep.
By the time morning came around, Tails woke up and found himself sleeping in his parents’ bed. Vanilla was nowhere in sight, but he could smell something that wasn’t his diaper for once coming from the kitchen. Tails got out of the bed and realized that he was still wearing his sleeper with his pacifier in his mouth. He sighed, it was pretty obvious that Vanilla knew about it now, plus there was no way he’d be able to sneak back downstairs and change. Before he could even take the pacifier out of his mouth, the bedroom door opened and Vanilla peeked her head inside.
“Oh you’re awake, I didn’t think you’d be up yet.” Vanilla said walking into the room.
“Sowwy about wast night Vaniwwa.” Tails said shyly as Vanilla walked up to him.
“Oh don’t worry about that, I’m used to Cream waking me up in the middle of the night to sleep with me.” Vanilla said smiling warmly at him and bent down to his eye level.
Tails plucked the pacifier out of his mouth. “I guess the cat’s out of the bag huh?”
“Looks that way, you didn’t do such a good job keeping it subtle last night either. You didn’t even take your pacifier out.” Vanilla said giggling a bit.
“Give me a break, I was scared.”
“That’s okay, I understand.” Vanilla said patting his head.
“Any time Tails.” Vanilla said standing back up. “Now whaddya say to getting out of that soggy diaper?”
“You’re really willing to change me?”
“Only if you want me to, I just assumed it would be a lot easier than doing it yourself.”
“You’re right about that. Come on, I’ll show you where everything is.” Tails said leading Vanilla into his room.
Tails dug a fresh diaper out from the nightstand and placed it next to the mat. Before he could say anything, Vanilla was pulling the sleeper’s zipper down and pulled his arms out. He stepped out of the sleeper and lay on the changing mat.
“I assume you’ll be wanting me to keep quiet about this then?” Vanilla asked as she went about changing his diaper.
“I’d rather you do, don’t need everyone knowing about it.” Tails said.
“Okay, I won’t tell a soul. Not even Cream.” Vanilla said zipping her mouth shut.
“Actually, Cream already knows about it. She kinda found out yesterday.”
“So that’s why she was down here for so long yesterday, I was wondering what she was up to.” Vanilla said tossing the wet diaper. “At least you won’t have to hide it when we’re here.”
“I guess you’re right.” Tails said as she lifted his legs up.
Vanilla finished changing Tails and helped him to his feet. “Anything else you need?”
“Umm, do you think you could help me into this thing?” Tails asked pulling out the yellow onesie from his closet.
“Of course.” Vanilla chuckled a bit. “Hold your arms above your head.”
Tails did as she asked and she slipped the onesie over him like a shirt. “That’s it?”
“One more thing,” Vanilla said draping the flap over his diaper, “we’ve gotta button the flaps.”
Tails stood there as Vanilla pulled his tails through the hole in the back and buttoned the flaps together tightly.
“There you go, all nice and snug.” Vanilla said standing back up.
“What’s this piece here for?” Tails asked holding a piece of fabric loosely hanging off the front of the onesie.
“That’s for clipping your pacifier onto so you don’t lose it, baby onesies have the same thing on them.” Vanilla said clipping the pacifier to the strap. She took a step back and looked at Tails. “You look just like you did as a toddler, only taller, but just as cute.” She giggled.
Tails blushed from her comment and the 2 of them headed upstairs for breakfast. By the time they got into the kitchen, Cream had just woken up and was getting herself a glass of water.
“Oh, good morning Tails. Good morning mom.” She jumped as she saw them when she turned around.
“Good morning sweetie, did you sleep well?” Vanilla asked pulling a chair out for Tails and Cream.
“Good enough, that storm woke me up though. I was gonna come sleep with you, but I saw that your bed was already taken.”
“Sorry about that Cream.”
“That’s okay, I know how scared of lightning you are. And I see that you’re not even bothering to hide it anymore.” Cream said giving Tails a pat on the butt.
“Nope, both of you know anyways.” Tails said sitting down in the chair. Thanks to the thickness of the diaper, it felt like he was sitting on a pillow.
“Do you have any cereal around here?” Cream asked as Tails let out a yawn.
“There should be some Lucky Charms in the cabinet down there. The bowls are just above that.”
“Thank you.” Cream said grabbing the box along with 2 bowls and spoons. She set 1 bowl and spoon in front of Tails and fetched the milk out of the fridge.
“Thanks Cream.” Tails said as she poured some milk into his bowl and then some into her own.
Vanilla couldn’t help but smile at them, she knew Cream had a bit of a crush on Tails since she was 6. She grabbed an orange for herself and sat down. They sat in silence eating their breakfast for the next 15 minutes and Vanilla washed up.
“Hey Tails, do you have any fun games the 3 of us could play together?” Cream asked looking at the collection of videogames he had next to the TV.
“Well, I’ve got the game that ruins friendships.” Tails said looking through the disk cases.
“The game that ruins friendships? Well that doesn’t sound very fun to me.” Cream said as Tails kept digging.
“Relax,” Tails said pulling out a colorful game case, “it’s only Mario Party!”
“Oh, I thought it was gonna be something bad.”
“What’re you 2 up to?” Vanilla asked coming into the livingroom.
“We’re gonna play some Mario Party, you wanna join in?” Cream asked handing her a controller.
“I’m not very good at videogames.” Vanilla said.
“Come on, it’s not that hard to play. Plus it’s better with more people.” Tails said crawling up to her.
“Okay, I’ll give it a try.”
For the rest of the day Tails, Cream, and Vanilla played had fun playing different Mario Parties and had a blast every time. By the time they had all had enough it was already 9:30 in the evening.
“Wow, that day went by really quickly!” Cream said looking at the clock.
Vanilla warmed up some leftovers in the fridge and set them out for Cream and Tails.
“You 2 should eat something before you go to bed, a full tummy will help you fall asleep easier too.”
Cream wasn’t very tired and finished her food in a couple minutes. Tails, on the other hand, was still tired from his lack of sleep last night and barely made a dent in his food before he conked out for good.
“I’m gonna go get him changed and bring him back up here to sleep with me again tonight.” Vanilla said lifting Tails into her arms. “Why don’t you get dressed for bed too?”
Vanilla carried Tails into his room and set him on his bed. She noticed that he had stuck his thumb into his mouth and was slowly sucking on it with a peaceful look on his face. As she turned around to grab a clean diaper, she heard the faint patter of urine flowing into the boy’s diaper. Tails shifted a little bit as he relieved himself and Vanilla chuckled a bit from how adorable he looked right now. Within 10 minutes, she got him into a new diaper and his sleeper and clipped the pacifier strap onto the sleeper. She slipped the pacifier into his mouth and picked him back up.
“Mom, your phone is vibrating.” Cream whispered as Vanilla reached the top of the steps.
“Just let me put Tails in bed.” Vanilla said carrying him to the bedroom. She gave him his plushie and tucked him into one side of the bed.
Cream handed the cellphone to her mother and trotted back to her room.
Vanilla checked her text messages and there was one from Ebony.
Just wanted to let you know that I’ll be back tomorrow morning!
Vanilla smiled and sent her a response.
I’ll let Tails know when he wakes up.
“Who was it?” Cream asked adjusting her pajamas.
“It was Ebony, she’ll be back tomorrow morning.” Vanilla said putting the phone in her bag. “You all dressed for bed?”
“Yup, got my diaper on and everything.” Cream said proud of herself.
“Let me see.” Vanilla asked.
Cream pulled down her pants revealing a frilly, pink tape on diaper.
“Good girl.” Vanilla said rubbing Cream’s head. “Now off to bed with you.”
Cream pulled her pants back up, let her mom kiss her on the forehead, and closed the door to her room.
Vanilla quickly brushed her teeth and closed the door to the bedroom. Tails was peacefully sleeping underneath the covers so Vanilla was careful not to disturb him as she climbed into bed. Once she was comfortable in bed, she turned the lamp off.
“Good night Tails.” She said closing her eyes.
“Ni ni, mama.” Tails sleepily murmured.
By the time morning rolled around, Tails eventually woke up to the sound of voices coming from the other side of the door. He sucked his pacifier a couple more times and rubbed his eyes before rolling out of bed. He could feel that his diaper was a little more than just wet and groggily waddled his way over to the door.
“I’m sure he’d love that!” Tails heard Cream say as he opened the door.
“We’ll make sure the house is clean and locked up tight before we go, Rosemary did give me a key to the place awhile back.” Vanilla said.
“Great, now all we have to do is wait for our little ray of sunshine to wake up.” A familiar voice replied.
“Ebony, is that you?” Tails asked rubbing his eyes again as he waddled into the kitchen.
“Well speak of the devil! We were just talking about you!” Ebony said putting a hand on his shoulder nearly knocking him over.
Tails almost sat down, but remembered the mess in the back of his diaper and stopped himself. “Okay, so what is all of this about?” Tails asked once he was fully awake.
“I was planning on having you spend the next couple of days over at my place. We have a lot more things for you to have fun with over there, plus I’m sure my brother would enjoy having a playmate.” Ebony said sipping a cup of coffee that Vanilla had brewed earlier.
Just as Tails was about to say something, the phone began ringing.
“I’ll get that.” Vanilla said walking over to the phone.
“Do you think you could change me Ebony?” Tails asked.
“Sure thing, I’ll have to pack quite a few of your diapers for the next couple of days.” Ebony said as they headed towards the stairs.
“Okay, I’ll let him know. Have fun!” Vanilla said hanging up the phone.
“Who was that?” Tails asked turning around.
“That was your mom, she said that they’ll be gone for another week.”
“Oh, okay.” Tails said disappointed.
“Don’t worry Tails, I’ll try to keep it fun for you until they get back. Now let’s get you out of that stinky diapee.” Ebony said leading him downstairs.
While Ebony changed Tails, Vanilla and Cream ate breakfast and started cleaning the house. Ebony walked back up the stairs with a duffle bag full of Tails’s diapers and changing supplies. Tails followed closely behind her wearing a combination of his onesie and his overalls with his pacifier hanging from the front.
“Well don’t you just look precious?” Vanilla said as Tails sat down.
“I think we’re all set to go, why don’t you get something to eat and then we’ll be on our way?” Ebony said to Tails.
“Here you go Tails.” Cream said putting a bowl of cereal in front of him.
“Oh, thanks Cream.” Tails said as he started eating.
Once Tails finished eating, Cream washed up the bowl and put it away. The 4 of them went over the house and made sure everything was in order before they left.
“I think that’s everything.” Tails said as they stood by the door.
“I’ll lock the door when you everyone’s out.” Vanilla said. “You still know where the spare is right Tails?”
“Yup, my parents told me to find a good place to hide it.” Tails said opening the door.
“I suppose that’s that.” Vanilla said as they all walked outside and locked the door. “You 2 have fun now.”
“We will, see you later!” Ebony said as they waved goodbye.
Ebony and Tails got into her car and drove off towards her house. Tails could see Vanilla and Cream drive off in the opposite direction.
“So, how far away do you live?” Tails asked.
“Not far, I live in the next suburb over actually. We’ll be there in a couple minutes.”
“What’s your brother like?”
“He’s a pretty nice guy, easy to get along with. Looks exactly like me too, with the exception of hairstyle. I’m sure you 2 will get along just fine.”
Tails was kind of excited to have someone else to play with but he was also nervous at the same time. He was a good 8 years older than him.
Within the next 5 minutes, Ebony pulled up to a fairly large house with some toys littered across the yard.
“This is where you live?! This place is huge!”
“And this is only the outside, you haven’t even seen the inside OR the backyard.” Ebony said getting out of the car.
As Tails got out of the car, an older wolf came out of the house and walked over to them.
“Welcome home honey.” She said hugging Ebony. “Is this your little friend you told me about?”
“Hi mom, yeah this is Tails.”
“Mom?” Tails asked.
“Yup, this is my adoptive mom Mrs. Stryk. My dad is probably at work right now.”
“A pleasure to meet you Tails.” Mrs. Stryk said shaking his hand. “Why don’t you come on in and make yourself at home.”
Tails, Ebony, and Mrs. Stryk all walked into the house and Tails stared at how big the place was.
“I’ll take your things and put them in the nursery.” Mrs. Stryk said picking up the duffle bag and headed upstairs.
“See, I told you this place was big.” Ebony said giving Tails a smile.
Tails was about to say something when a flash of black and red grabbed Ebony’s legs.
“Yay Ebby’s home!” A large black and red fox said snuggling Ebony’s legs.
“Hey there Evvy, I missed you little bro.” She said ruffling his head.
“Ebby? Evvy? Did I miss something here?” Tails asked completely confused.
“Sorry Tails, meet my little brother Evony. Ebby and Evvy are nicknames we use for each other.” She explained. “Say hello to your new playmate Evvy.”
“Hi there, you must be Tails right?” Evony said standing up and offered his hand to Tails.
Tails took a good look at Evony, he was wearing a blue onesie with baby booties on his feet and a colorful pacifier hanging from the onesie. “Glad to meet you Evony.” Tails said shaking his hand. “Did your mom say something about a nursery earlier?”
“Yeah, you’ll be staying in there with me. Here, I’ll show you.” Evony said leading them up the steps. He took a turn at the top of the steps and stopped in front of a colorful door. “Here we are.” He said opening the door.
“Wow, this room is huge!” Tails said as they walked into the nursery.
“Gotta have enough space for everything. I’ve got lots of toys, clothes, a couple cribs, a changing table, and lots of other stuff.” Evony said showing Tails around.
“So I’ll be sleeping in here with you then?”
“Yup, you even get your own crib.” Evony said showing Tails where he would be sleeping.
“It’s got a mobile and everything, this place is really decked out.” Tails said giving the mobile a spin. “And is that my plushie?!” Tails said grabbing the plush fox and hugged it.
“Now that we’ve got everything established, why don’t we get started?” Ebony asked as Tails put his plushie back into the crib.
“Okay!” Tails and Evony said in unison.
“Can I get out of these overalls first?” Tails asked.
“Sure, it’ll make checking your diaper easier if you’re just in a onesie.” Ebony said taking the overalls off of him. “Alright boys, you know the rules right?”
They both nodded and popped their pacifiers into their mouths.
Unbeknownst to everyone in the Stryk household, there was a fairly large commotion going on downtown. Eggman was up to his usual schemes again, but this time Sonic and Knuckles were having a tough time by themselves.
“Man where the hell is Tails when you need him?!” Knuckles said punching robots left and right.
“I don’t know!” Sonic said spinning through a few robots. “I’ve called his house like, a dozen times already!”
“Oh ho ho ho! They can’t hope to win being outnumbered 1000 to 1!” Eggman chuckled from his egg mobile.
“Technically it’s 1000 to 2.” Orbot said from behind him.
“Oh quiet you! Either way it doesn’t matter, they don’t have even the slightest chance of winning at this rate. Not when I have this!” Eggman said holding up the green chaos emerald.
“Sonic, go find Tails! I’ll try to hold them off as long as possible.” Knuckles said bashing another robot’s head in.
“Got it! I’ll be back ASAP!” Sonic said speeding off.
Sonic reached Tails’s house within a matter of seconds and began banging on the door.
“Come on Tails open the door!” Sonic said with desperation.
As Sonic kept knocking, one of Tails’s neighbors happened to walk by.
“You looking for Miles?” He asked.
“Yeah, have you seen him?” Sonic asked.
“He left with that babysitter a couple hours ago.”
“What?! Where’d they go?!” Sonic asked grabbing the man’s shoulders.
“Woah there, calm down! I think she said something about going to her house from what I overheard.”
“Well, where does she live?”
“Heck if I know, they went off in that direction though.”
“Well that’s helpful.” Sonic said sarcastically. “How did you know they were going to her house though?”
“I happened to be walking by and overheard them.”
“Do you know anyone who does know where she lives?”
“Ask the lady living on the end of the street, she knows everything about everyone.”
“Thanks.” Sonic said speeding off. He knocked on the door until a middle aged woman opened it.
“Oh hello Sonic, how can I help you?”
“I’m looking for Ebony Gale, I was told you might know where she lives.”
“Of course! She lives in the suburb just to the east of here, you’ll know her house when you see it.”
“What do you mean by that?” Sonic asked.
“It’s pretty hard to miss the place, it’s a big, fairly extravagant looking house.”
“Thanks.” Sonic said turning around.
“Would you like to come in for a bit? You look a little beat.”
“Sorry, kind of in a hurry.” Sonic said quickly taking off.
Back at Ebony’s place, Tails and Evony were happily rolling a ball back and forth to each other until Ebony and her mom came into the room each holding a bottle full of milk.
“Alright boys, time for your bottles.” Mrs. Stryk said picking Tails up off the floor. She carried him over to the couch and sat down as Ebony sat on the floor with her brother.
“Just to let you know, this milk will taste a little different from regular milk.” Ebony said looking at Tails.
“Whaddya mean by dat?”
“It’s sort of meant to be a formula for adult babies. There’s a type for every species, and this one is for foxes like us.” Ebony said shaking the bottle.
“It’s not gonna taste yucky is it?” Tails asked.
“Nope, it should actually taste pretty good. And this stuff is pretty filling.” Ebony said popping the bottle into Evony’s mouth.
Tails nodded his head and opened his mouth wide.
“Here comes the plane!” Mrs. Stryk said making a plane noise as she inched the bottle closer to his mouth.
Tails giggled a bit and let the bottle find its way into his mouth. He closed his eyes and began sucking the lukewarm liquid.
After a minute, Evony had already finished his bottle while Tails was only halfway there. They patiently waited for him to finish.
Tails was completely relaxed and at peace again until the front door flew open nearly making him choke on the milk.
A flash of blue flew into the room nearly knocking Ebony over in the process.
“Hey! Watch it will ya!” Ebony said catching herself.
“Tails!” Sonic said panting for air. “Eggman is attacking the city and we could really use your……help?” Sonic said with a baffled look on his face as he saw Tails.
With wide eyes, Tails slowly spit the baby bottle out of his mouth. “H-hey there Sonic.” Tails said sheepishly waving at his best friend.
Sonic was at a loss for words and slowly waved back at him.
“Oh boy, this could get ugly.” Ebony said standing up.
