"Come on Shadow! Wake up you lazy ass!" Meph grumbled as he shook the said male.
Shadow simply groaned in his sleep and turned over.
Mephiles' eyes narrowed as he growled. "Shadow... Wake up..."
"Alright, alright. I'm up." the sleepy male grumbled as he sat up and yawned, rubbing the sleep from his eyes.
"Finally!" The pregnant male complained. "If you didn't get up then I was going to hit you with the pillow... That or push you off the bed..." He mumbled quietly.
"Good morning to you too, love." Shadow muttered.
Meph smirked playfully as he pushed Shadow off the bed, giggling, "Good morning!~"
Shadow chuckled, getting up, before leaning over to give his mate a kiss, Mephiles purred and his tail wagged as he kissed back.
"Lets get everything ready for the others, shall we?" Shadow murmured.
"Okay!" Meph grinned.
Once both were showered and groomed for the day, the ebony males went about setting their house up for their sleepover later on that night.
Mephiles was busy looking through the cupboards, looking for something they could have later on when he felt something from inside his belly.
Meph gasped. Did the baby just...?
"Shadow!" He called out.
There was a crash in the other room, followed instantly by a curse, and Shadow was running/stumbling into the room.
"What? What is it?" He panted, "Are you alright? Are you hurt?"
"No, I'm fine. Come here." Meph said as he looked down at his belly.
Shadow, looking confused and still worried, quietly came over.
"Give me your hand." Meph said, holding out his hand to the older male.
Shadow gave him his hand and blinked when he put it on his belly.
Meph gently pressed Shadow's hand down into his belly and waited.
Shadow wondered what Meph was doing before he gasped when he felt something shift beneath his hand.
"Meph," he whispered, wide-eyed, "did you feel that?"
Meph smiled and nodded. "I did."
Shadow made a sound similar to a laugh and a sound of relief before he lovingly embraced his mate.
Meph giggled at his mate's reaction, asking, "Was you worried about me?"
"Yeah, I was, actually." Shadow chuckled.
"Why?" The ebony uke asked curiously. "You know I can look after myself in the house of all places Shadzy." He smiled.
Shadow chuckled and kissed his cheek, "Just paternal instincts kicking in, I guess, love..."
"Don't you mean overprotective instincts kicking in?" Meph grinned.
Shadow pouted with crossed arms. "I can't help it, love..."
Meph smiled and licked Shadow's cheek. "I know Shadzy."
Shadow smiled and kissed his mate. The other's tail wagged quickly as he kissed back.
"Love you." the seme purred.
"Love you more." The uke purred, nuzzling his head under the other's chin.
Placing a hand on Meph's belly, Shadow nuzzled him in return. Meph purred louder as he nuzzled closer.
"Wanna finish getting ready for the sleepover? " the red-streaked male murmured.
"Please." The uke smiled.
Shadow chuckled and they resumed getting everything ready.
Meanwhile, with Sonic and Scourge...
Scourge was taking a nice, long, hot shower to try and wake himself up. Trouble was though, he was taking a long time.
"Scourgie," Sonic whined, "what's taking so long?"
"Nothing love. I'm just trying to wake myself up." The emerald male explained as he turned off the shower.
"Okay." Sonic sighed, "Breakfast will be ready when you come downstairs."
"Alright love." Scourge smiled as he dried himself off.
Sonic then went downstairs to start breakfast. Scourge quickly brushed his fur and quills into place before getting dressed and coming downstairs to meet his mate for breakfast. Sonic was quietly humming a tune as he made pancakes.
Scourge's ears perked to the other's singing. He smiled as he made his way to the singing male, gently wrapping his arms round the other's waist, whispering in a blue furred ear, "Hello beautiful~"
Sonic had jumped before giggling and turning his head slightly to kiss him on the cheek.
"Morning, handsome." he purred. "You scared me..."
"Aww, I'm sorry Sonikku~" he purred before nuzzling into blue fur.
"Its okay." he purred, nuzzling his cheek with his own.
"Breakfast is almost ready." he murmured softly.
"Do you want me to help at all?" The green male asked curiously.
Sonic smiled, "You can set the table and get the juice from the fridge..."
"Alright." Scourge smiled as he pulled away from his mate to go to the fridge.
The uke happily went back to cooking. After Scourge had laid the table, he helped Sonic plate up breakfast before helping the blue male to his seat.
"Thanks." the uke smiled once Scourge had let his seat out for him and gently pushed him towards the table.
"Thanks." the uke smiled once Scourge had let his seat out for him and gently pushed him towards the table.
"No prob love." His seme replied as he sat in his own chair.
Both then went about enjoying their breakfast which Scourge absolutely loved.
His mate was an amazing cook.
"Sonikku?" He spoke up after a while.
"Hm?" the uke asked curiously.
"Where did you learn to cook?" green asked.
Sonic smiled softly, "My Mum taught me..."
"I see..." the emerald male smiled. "So, who was the best cook n the house? You or your Mum?"
"Mum, definitely.” he giggled.
Scourge chuckled. "Was that till she taught you everything?"
"Exactly." the pregnant male smiled.
The green male chuckled one again as he finished his food, having his full. Soon, Sonic was finished with Scourge volunteering to do the dishes while he rested. Scourge quickly tidied up before making his way over to the lounge and sitting down on the floor in front of the couch. Sonic smiled before going over and making himself comfy in his lap.
Scourge raised a brow at the blue male, asking, "You want to rest on me whilst I'm sat on the floor?”
"Yep!" he giggled, feeling playful at the moment.
"Are you sure you want to do that Sonikku?" Green questioned, a playful glint in his eye.
Sonic blinked, getting a bit nervous from the look in Scourge's eyes.
"....Maybe?" he squeaked, blushing.
"But what if something were to happen to you?... Like a tickle attack!" Scourge grinned as he moved his legs so Sonic was on the floor before he started to tickle the blue male's sides.
Sonic screamed before laughing, squirming beneath his mate as he tried to get him off--still laughing the entire time. Scourge laughed along with his mate as he kept tickling him, only stopping after a while as he noticed how tired his mate was getting.
"You're... Mean." Sonic panted from where he lay, even though a beautiful smile and the occasional giggle was still shown.
"Aww~ But I love you~" the green male purred as he nuzzled his uke lovingly.
Sonic sighed tiredly, but he closed his eyes and gently nuzzled his mate in return, purring with content. Scourge purred louder in return, nuzzling the blue male even more.
"Luv you." Sonic murmured.
"Love you more, babe." Scourge purred.
Sonic smiled before saying, "Help me up..."
Scourge quickly obliged, sitting up and pulling the blue male onto his lap, wrapping his arms round the his waist and nuzzling into blue fur. Sonic just smiled and enjoyed being cuddled with.
“How are you feeling this morning love?” Scourge mumbled curiously.
"A little nauseous and a bit tired, but I'm fine." blue purred.
“That's good... I guess...” the emerald male shrugged.
Sonic giggled, "So, what were you doing before I came over?"
“Just relaxing.” Scourge said.
Sonic hmm'ed with content, resting his head on Scourge's chest, listening to his steady heartbeat.
"… Do we have everything packed of the sleepover at Meph's place?" the uke asked.
“Almost.” Scourge admitted. “We just need to pack our toothbrushes and then we're ready to go.”
"M'kay." he smiled sleepily, snuggling closer to his mate. He just felt like lounging around today... He felt lazy.
Scourge chuckled softly when he noticed how tired Sonic was looking. “Come on Sonikku, we've gotta go to Shadow's and Mephiles' place.”
"...'kay" he mumbled sleepily, slowly getting off the other's lap and making his way up the stairs to the bathroom to get his toothbrush.
Shaking his head, Scourge stood and followed the other upstairs and into the bathroom, and he nearly bumped into the other as Sonic was coming out the bathroom.
“Whoops, sorry Sonikku.” Scourge sweat dropped.
"No problem." he giggled, kissing his mate on the nose.
Scourge smiled as he scooted past the other and into the bathroom, after grabbing his things he headed back downstairs before he stuffed his toothbrush into the bag that he had packed for both him and Sonic for while they were over at the sleepover.
“All done?” he asked as he zipped up the bag.
"Yep." Sonic smiled, no longer sleepy.
"Let's go then!" Green grinned as he headed to the front door.
Sonic grabbed the house keys, locked the door once they were out, and happily followed his boyfriend to Shadow and Meph's place.
"How do you think Meph will be?" Scourge asked, taking ahold of Sonic's hand.
"He should be fine," Sonic smiled, then being curious, "why?"
"Just wondering." Green smiled.
Sonic smiled and soon they were there.
Scourge knocked on the door and both the male's ears perked when they heard rummaging and scuffling from inside. Before they knew it, Meph opened the door and had his arms round his baby buddy, his tail wagging a mile a minute.
“Hi Sonic!!” he smiled.
"Hi, Mephie!!" the blue uke giggled, hugging back with his tail also wagging.
“It's great to see you again guys!” Meph grinned as he pulled away, his tail still wagging.
"We were just here yesterday, Meph." Scourge chuckled just as Shadow came to the door, letting the others inside their home.
“But I miss you guys!” the ebony uke whined.
"We missed you too, Meph." Sonic smiled before asking, "So, how are you doing? Is the pup alright?”
Mephiles and Shadow both grinned happily at the question.
“Well,” Meph started, “I think you should find out for yourself.” he finished, holding out his hand to Sonic.
Sonic, being confused and curious at the same time, gave Meph his hand. Meph took his hand and rested it on his belly before gently pressing down.
Sonic was about to ask what was going on when nothing happened, but he gasped, eyes wide when something kicked his hand.
"Oh my gosh, it kicked!!" he gasped.
Mephiles grinned as Scourge also placed his hand on the ebony uke's belly, gasping as he also felt a small kick to his hand.
“That's right. He started moving yesterday, he gave me and Shadow a bit of a shock.”
"Dang, I wish I could've seen Shadow's face." Scourge chuckled.
“Shadow's reaction was quiet funny,” Meph giggled. “his over-protective mode switched on and he stumbled into the room when I called him.”
Sonic and Scourge couldn't help laughing.
“I was just trying to make sure that you were okay love. Besides, you know what I'm like when I think you're in danger...” Shadow mumbled in defence.
"Aww, how sweet," Sonic smiled, "Scourgie gets like that, too."
"Sonic!" Scourge said blushing.
Both the ukes giggled at their mates' reactions.
“We didn't say that we didn't like it.” Sonic smiled.
Both Shadow and Scourge just blushed, crossing their arms and looking away from one another.
Both ukes giggled even more, their giggles slowly turning into full out laughs.
"Oh, stop laughing." Shadow huffed, trying to hide his own smile.
“No!” Mephiles laughed, his tail wagging a little. “Because I know you like to see me happy!”
Shadow just sighed in defeat and chuckled himself, taking Meph into his lap.
“I told you so!” the ebony uke giggled as he nuzzled into his seme's neck, purring softly.
Sonic was currently doing the same to Scourge, both the semes purring quietly to their uke's attention.
"Alright, break it up over there." Shadow chuckled to the other couple, Scourge having trapped Sonic in one very intense make out session.
“Leave them be Shady.” Meph smiled, “Besides, Scourge is just being attentive” he grinned, referring to how Scourge said that Shadow was being attentive to the ebony uke yesterday.
Shadow just pouted.
“Awww, why the long face Shady?” Meph purred.
"No reason, love." he smiled, deciding to start up his own make out session with his own mate.
Meph squeaked in surprise before he relaxed and started kissing back. Soon, both couples didn't even realize that the other was there - too busy with their own mates. That was until Meph jumped and yelped in surprise when he felt a kick to his rib.
“Ow... That hurt...” he whined.
"Guess that was his way of telling us to knock it off." Shadow chuckled, rubbing his belly soothingly.
Meph relaxed at the other's touch, leaning forward and resting his head on Shadow's shoulder, mumbling, "It still hurt though..."
"Alright, little one," he murmured to his unborn child, "take it easy on Mummy in there..."
And surprisingly, the pup stopped a few moments later.
Meph blinked and looked up at Shadow. "He heard you..."
Shadow chuckled softly, "Well, at least he's obedient...."
Meph pouted and leant against the other.
"Aww, that's so sweet." Sonic smiled.
"That'll be us in a few months Sonikku." Scourge smiled.
"And I can't wait." Sonic smiled in return.
Scourge kissed the blue male's head before bringing him closer. Sonic purred, nuzzling closer into his warm embrace.
"Sonic?" Scourge spoke up after a while.
"Yes?" he blinked up at his mate.
"How many pups do you want and what gender do you want them to be?" Scourge asked curiously.
Sonic blinked before smiling softly, snuggling against his mate's shoulder as he rubbed his belly while thinking.
After some time he answered, "I... I want three."
"Two boys and a little girl." he purred with content.
"Well, I hope I give you what you want." The green male smiled as he nuzzled into the smaller male's neck.
"I hope so too." he smiled, softly kissing him on the cheek.
A little while later, Sonic and Meph finally decided to get their sleepover under way. Scourge and Shadow just did whatever made their mate happy. Just as long as it wasn't going to do any harm to the ukes or the unborn babies inside them that was.
While Sonic and Meph went about making snacks and talking about puppy names, Shadow and Scourge decided to break out the video games. Unfortunately, while they were doing that though, they had put all their attention on what they were doing and not on what their mates were doing...
Currently, Sonic and Meph were doing each other's quills - kinda like how girls do each other's hair.
Sonic then called Scourge to catch his attention.
But the green male didn't hear his mate as he was too busy playing video games.
Sonic frowned slightly. "Scourge...."
Once again, the said male didn't hear his mate calling his name.
Sonic's frown deepened and he growled, "Scourge!!"
Scourge's ears perked and he turned to look at the blue male. "Yeah Sonic?"
"I've been calling you for the past five minutes!!" he snapped.
Scourge flinched at that. "Sorry love."
"Hmph!!" Sonic said angrily, crossing his arms and looking away from his mate--highly upset that Scourge was paying more attention to some stupid game instead of him.
"I'm sorry Sonic..." the green male apologised.
"Did you hear something, Meph?" Sonic asked, trying to ignore his mate since he'd been ignoring him.
And Shadow wasn't paying any attention, he was still playing the game.
"No, all I heard was a mouse squeak..." The ebony uke mumbled as he glared at the back of Shadow.
And the next thing Shadow knew, he cried out in shock when the TV suddenly went out - ending his game.
He looked to see an angry Mephiles holding the TV power cord in his hand, glaring at him.
And the first thing that popped into Shadow's head as his ears quickly folded back was...Oh shit... I'm dead...
"Do you know how many times I called you and you ignored me?!" Mephiles hissed angrily.
“N-no...” Shadow stuttered hesitantly, flinching slightly at the look that Meph was giving.
"Exactly!!" Meph shouted, "You were too busy playing this stupid game!!" he added, angrily throwing the cord at his mate.
"And the same goes for you!!" Sonic shouted at Scourge, "One of us could've gone into premature labour and you two idiots would've never know because your eyes were glued to that TV screen!!"
“B-but that c-couldn't have happened... Y-you're both not f-far enough for t-that...” Scourge hesitantly pointed out, his tail going between his legs.
"How do you know?!" Sonic snapped, "We probably wouldn't have gone into labour, but neither of us is out of the miscarriage stage yet! Ever think of that?!"
"And to think, we may have been calling you because of an emergency, but nooo, you two just tuned us out!!" Meph snapped as well.
"I guess we know what's really important to them now, don't we Meph?" Sonic asked with a frown, glaring over at Scourge as he stood from his seat, quickly looking away as his crying mood swing kicked in.
"Yeah," Mephiles agreed, his own eyes watering slightly as he glared at Shadow, "they could've lost us and their pups for all we know, but what do they care? At least they would've gotten a high score and moved on to the next level."
Having enough of their boyfriends right now, both hurt ukes angrily looked away from them and quickly left the room.
“Guys, wait up!” Shadow called out as he scrambled to his feet and quickly followed the pregnant males, Scourge following behind him.
"Go away!!" Meph shoving Shadow away when he tried to enter the room he and Sonic went to. Sonic could easily be seen sitting on the bed hugging a pillow and silently crying.
"We don't want to see either of you right now," Meph growled, his own face streaked with tears.
"Your game is calling you." he sneered before slamming the door in both semes' faces, immediately locking it.
Both semes blinked at each other, not sure what to do. Both felt bad when they could easily hear their ukes quietly crying on the other side of the door.
"Sonic?" Scourge called out as he pressed his ear against the door.
The crying instantly silenced, although no one said anything from inside.
“Sonikku, I'm sorry, I didn't mean mean to ignore you, I swear.” green said, hoping that his uke would listen to him and calm down.
Inside, Sonic just sniffled and curled up more with his pillow.
Scourge sighed heavily once he figured out that he wasn't going to get a reply any time soon. With his ears folding back, he walked into the lounge and sat down on the couch.
"Meph?" Shadow called out to his own upset uke.
"Go away." Mephiles frowned weakly, sniffling as he rubbed away tears.
"Mephie, please let us in." Shadow begged. "We're sorry we ignored you, we didn't mean to ignore you both."
"Of course you didn't." he sniffled with a frown, glaring tiredly at the door, "Your attention isn't on that game now, so now you want to deal with me..."
“Please Meph...” Shadow tried one more time.
There was only silence as his answer and just when Shadow was about to give up hope and leave, the door opened and Meph stood in the doorway with crossed arms, dried tear steaks adorning his cheeks.
"You're not going to leave until I co-operate, are you?" he mumbled, still frowning a bit.
“No, I'm not leaving.” Shadow said, pulling the ebony uke close and wrapping his arms round him.
Meph's ears folded slightly even though he didn't protest to being held.
"I'm still mad at you, though..." he mumbled into his chest.
“I know you are...” Shadow sighed. “I don't expect you to forgive me any time soon...”
Meph just remained silent, resting his head on his mate's chest and listening to his heartbeat. Shadow stroked the uke's quills and kissed his head before peeking into the bedroom to check on Sonic.
The smaller uke was curled up in bed, fast asleep.
Shadow sighed and looked down at the uke in his arms. “Come on, let's go and sit down on the couch for a bit. What do you say?” he asked.
"...Fine." Meph sighed, sounding tired as he let Shadow lead him into the room.
Scourge’s ears perked as the ebony males entered the room.”How's Sonic?”
"He cried himself to sleep," Meph muttered.
Scourge tensed slight before standing and going to the room that Sonic was asleep in. And there, sure enough, was his little mate curled up in bed and fast asleep. Green sighed in relief as he looked over the blue male, seeing that he hadn't injured himself lifted a huge weight off the seme's shoulders. Being careful not to wake the sleeping uke, Scourge quietly walked to the bed and kicked off his shoes before climbing into bed and wrapping his arms round Sonic's waist, nuzzling into his neck.
Sonic frowned a bit in his sleep, but other than that, he remained asleep.
"I'm sorry Sonikku..." Scourge whispered quietly.
His mate just turned over, curling into his chest and sighing in his sleep.
Green blinked at the reaction, he knew that Sonic wouldn't have forgiven him that quickly. None the less, Scourge held the young uke closer and gently kissed his head. After watching his love sleep peacefully, Scourge was soon pulled under to slumber as well...
Meanwhile with Mephiles and Shadow, Meph was sat down on Shadow's lap with the older male's arms wrapped round the uke's waist.
"Some sleepover this is turning out to be." Meph sighed heavily in disappointment.
"I'm sorry about earlier..." Shadow mumbled, his gaze to the floor.
"It's okay, I guess." he murmured.
Shadow looked up at his young uke questionably.
Meph sighed and have him a soft kiss on the cheek, "I'm sorry too. I overreacted...."
"Please don't ever lock yourself in a room again if you get angry or upset with me. You had me worried sick." The seme explained, a sad and worried look on his face.
"I won't... I'm sorry." the uke mumbled in apology.
"Its okay." The older male sighed as he stroked the pregnant male's head softly.
Meph sighed softly and nuzzled into his chest fur. Shadow on the other hand held the smaller male closer and nuzzled into his head.
"Love you." Meph muttered softly.
"Love you too." Shadow replied softly.
Pretty soon, Meph was asleep in his lap and Shadow had a smile on his face as he watched over the uke sleep peacefully. Soon, he was asleep himself.
