Jailed By Heart 1


Sonic's POV

I sighed as I read another report of shopping theft from a local store in the middle of a mall. The culprit hadn't even tried to be subtle, that was certain. Even witnesses said, much to their own surprise, that the thief hadn't even tried to hide the fact that he had just commited a crime.
Of course, they thought that the criminal had acted this way because he was proud to break the law.
But I knew the real reason.
I got up from my desk chair with another sigh as I walked out of my office and made my way towards the interrogation rooms. I knew the police station like the back of my hand, so it only took me a moment to get to my destination.
When my eyes met with the door as it stood before me. I wasted no time in grasping the handle and pushing it downward, making it click out of place and permit me entrance into the room.
The door wasn't even fully open, but the sound of laughter already filled my ears. If you witnessed the sight before me, you wouldn't think that it was a criminal and a cop who were casually talking about little matters. But that was exactly what they were doing.
A teen about 15 years old sat on the chair with his hands unconciously playing with the handcuffs that were supposed to keep his wrists restraint. He wore a black sweater that was only a few tints lighter than his fur, a dark green pair of pants and white with red sneakers.
The police woman, who was 28-years-old, before him was leaning against the table as she spoke with him. A nametage with the name 'Rouge' was attached to the dark uniform she wore.
A smile was present on both of their faces as they laughed, but I didn't share their joy. In fact, I was angry. Very angry.
Their laughter suddenly stopped when they noticed that I had joined their company.
"How about I leave the two of you alone?" Rouge suggested and left the room, leaving the two of us alone.
With a deep frown plastered on my muzzle, I walked further into the room and harshly threw a yellow map on the table. The sound the impact it created was harsh to sensitive mobian ears and the hedgehog in front of me clearly flinched because of it, but I couldn't care less.
As I moved to sit down on the chair opposite to him, the hedgehog still wore a smile, happy to see me.
"Shadow..." I said with a serious tone evident in my voice, showing that I was not pleased with him being here.
Shadow's ears twitched as they flattened a little, but he kept his smile up even though he knew I was angry. He also knew that I harbored a soft spot for him in my heart and that I couldn't stay angry at him for long. Especially not when he wore that innocent little smile.
I sighed for the so maniest time that day and hide my face behind my hands and rubbed the exhaustion out of them. All night I had spend worrying about him and here he was, watching my every move with the most innocent expression a criminal teenager could bear.
Shadow waited for me to speak, but when I stayed silent, he decided to make the first move.
"You slept bad last night? I'm sorry if I caused you any trouble. I really am." He said as his ears flattened against his skull and his smile did turn upside down. He seemed genuinely sorry to worry me so.
"If you're so sorry, than why do you keep getting yourself in trouble?" I asked, although I already knew the answer.
Shadow was a pretty well-known young delinquent in this police station. He was often brought in for small thefts and vandalisms. You'd think that he would've tried to stay out of police hands, but no, he tried to get caught, he tried to find excuses to be send here to the police station.
All for just one reason.
Me.
"Because... Well... I don't really need to explain that to you." Shadow said, a light blush staining his cheeks out of embarrassment as he thought of me, even though, I was sitting in front of him. He didn't want to explain exactly what sort of thoughts justified another sudden impulse to break the law in his mind.
"Shadow, you don't need to get in trouble just to see me." I told him, but he didn't buy it.
"Apparently, I do! I tried calling you and you simply ignored me! You promised you would answer my calls if I was staying out of trouble, but getting into trouble caught your attention before, so I figured that I should do it again!" He yelled as he crossed his arms in front of his chest.
"He's got a point, you did promise you would answer his calls if he didn't get into trouble again!" Rouge's voice resonated from the other side of the closed door. I didn't even try to get her to stop eavesdropping on us.
"And just for how long did you stay out of trouble? A week before you gave up?!" I angrily retorted.
"Now Sonic's got a point this time. You didn't exactly keep your end of the bargain for long!" Rouge interrupted again.
"Rouge, stop eavesdropping on us! This is a private conversation!" I yelled back at her.
"Than stop yelling! Everyone in the station can hear you two!" She yelled back at me before we heard the clicking of her heels walking down the corridor.
Shadow hadn't even noticed her interruption. Even if he had noticed, he certainly didn't show it. He was still glaring at me in anger.
I sighed again and leant with my elbows on the metal table.
"Listen, I'm sorry that I haven't answered any of your calls. But I honestly thought that, if you kept the nice act up for longer than a week, calling you would've been much more rewarding." I explained. My attention and company seemed to be of much value to him.
Not that I could blame him. His parents didn't exactly provide the positive and teaching attention that a child like him needed. Instead, I was the one providing that for him. And that was probably the reason why he kept coming back for more.
Well... That and the 'small' fact that we were kind of a couple.
This time Shadow released a sigh from his lungs. He wasn't saying anything to defend his side, so this could only mean that he accepted my apology and wanted to leave the matter behind.
I shot him a light smile.
"Come on, let's get you home." I said and took the yellow map with me as I left the room, closing the door behind Shadow. But before he followed me out of the police station, he quickly handed Rouge her handcuffs back and told my team goodbye, which they happily returned.
It was a bit funny. Shadow was a criminal, but every single member of my team loved to have him around. Maybe it was because, after all the time he spend at my friend's and my office, they came to know him as a good person. I couldn't agree more.
Sure, he stole a lot from people, mainly stores, but always returned it fully intact and still neatly in its original package once it had served to get my attention. Some of the store owners he frequently stole from were annoyed of course, but they knew that Shadow couldn't be a bad person. Not every thief stole something only to return it not much later. To them, he was a nuisance at most.
I got the car started as he got in and fastened his seatbelt.
"Are you really bringing me back home? I would rather stay at your apartment." Shadow said as I pulled the car out of its parking spot and drove onto the street.
"You know you can't stay at my appartment all the time. People will get suspicious." I said, trying to concentrate on the road.
"And by people you mean your friends down at the station who already know about us?" The thief stated as he looked out of the front view window with his arms crossed over his chest.
"Right." I muttered as I turned the car around the corner.
Shadow was right. We lived in a city. Not many people knew us and those who did, didn't really care about what kind of relationship we had believe it or not.
"Your parents might get worried, though." I said, although, we both knew that was a lie. I didn't know the extent of Shadow's home situation, but I knew it was bad. I love him and I wanted nothing more than to keep him with me, but I couldn't.
His mother had already threatened to file a complaint. She was unpredictable and the threat might've just been a lie, but I didn't want to take any chances. Even if it sounded selfish to keep myself out of trouble and force Shadow to go back home, but who would look after him if I wasn't there?
Shadow huffed, but didn't respond any further and just looked out of the window, watching the houses pass us by.

Half an hour had passed by the time I had my car stop in front of a house.
"Well, here we are." I said and let my hands fall on my lap. I watched my passenger as I waited for him to exit the vehicle, but he made no move. With his arms crossed in front of his chest, he still continued to look out of the window, watching the rain fall down from the sky.
It was obvious that he didn't want to leave yet, so I gave him some time.
After a couple of moments, he pulled something what seemed to be a new cellphone case out of his pocket and handed it to me.
"This is evidence, right? You should take it back with you." He said, knowing that this could be used against him if the owner were to press charges against him.
I took it, grasping the plastic bag that contained it.
"I'm going to apologise to him tomorrow. If he accepts it, you can return that to him, right?" He asked. I nodded and watched him give me a slight smile. Before I could return it, he leant over to my side of the car and pressed his lips against mine in a kiss that I gladly returned. The kiss wasn't long, but it was sweet and sad at the same time.
It was over much to soon. My young lover pulled away and exited the car. Of course, I wanted him to stay longer, but he couldn't. He needed to come home, weither we liked it or not.
Without even trying a vain attempt at protecting himself from the rain, Shadow walked up on the path that lead to the doorstep. He stopped and turned, briefly waving at me as I drove away.
Once I was out of sight, Shadow's eyes narrowed as he watched the house that he regretfully called his home. He reached up to grasp the handle of the front door. When he pushed it down, he noticed that the front door hadn't even been locked.
Shadow wore indifferent expression as he opened the front door. A cold, uninviting feeling overwhelmed him. He hesitated to walk inside.
After making a quick decision, he turned around and ran back out in the rain, refusing to go home just yet.

The rain continued to pour down for hours. There almost seemed to be no end in sight. I was glad when my shift ended, allowing me to go home and take a nice warm shower.
The shower was hot and refreshing, but over way too soon. I couldn't stay under it forever, after all.
I stepped out of the shower and searched for the towel I had placed on the heater ready to be used. I had the plan to use that towel in mind, but a sound coming from the livingroom made a slight change in plans.
After tying the towel around my waist, I turned the light in the bathroom off and carefully opened the door. The small hallway in front of me was dark, not only making it hard for me to see, but also serving to feed my apprehension.
Silently, I searched my clothes that were lying disorderly on a chair out in the hallway, pulled my gun out of it's holder and removed the safety before advancing down the dark hallway.
The feeling of suspense grew inside me as I reached the darkness of the livingroom. I didn't bother turning on the lights. I had caught criminals in the dark before, it wouldn't hinder me much. Not to mention that it could keep the intruder from noticing my presence.
But it seemed like the intruder already knew.
"Sonic!" A young voice yelled as its owner threw its arms around my torso.
The surprise hug had startled me so bad that I had nearly fired my gun out of instinct to defend myself. But once the initial shock had passed, only annoyence was left.
"Shadow." I growled lightly, but the hedgehog in question just tightened his embrace, knowing that I wasn't angry, just startled and a little annoyed at the fact that he could've caused me a lot of problems if my gun had actually been fired.
"Sorry." Shadow spoke with a teasing tone, ignoring my damp fur as he held onto me. His tone might've been a teasing one, but I could still tell that it was genuine.
I would tell him that he could get his clothes wet by pressing himself up against my wet fur, but his clothes were wetter than I was because of the rain.
"Shadow, your clothes are soaked. It's better if you undress and- Ah!" I finished my sentence with a surprised yelp as my towel was suddenly untied, making it fall down to the ground.
"Shadow! Not now!" I stated his name as I turned to face him.
"Oh, don't be so embarrassed. I've seen you naked before." He said as he picked the towel up from the floor and handed it back to me, trying not to let his eyes revert down.
I took it and walked back into the bathroom that was still hot from the steaming shower I had taken. Shadow followed me inside with a smile on his features as I began to dry myself, something that I could've done before if my lover hadn't acted like a burglar and broke into my home again.
Speaking of breaking into my home...
"Shadow, you really need to put an end to this." I said as I let the towel drop down on the floor again and pulled a pair of boxers on.
"I didn't really have a choice. It was cold outside and I was getting soaked from the rain. You weren't answering so I decided to take matters into my own hands." He explained, leaning against the wall as he watched me starting to clean the bathroom.
"Don't you have other stuff to do besides watching me tidy the bathroom?" I asked once I had noticed his stare. He shook his head with a smile. I couldn't help but chuckle a little.
I grabbed a clean towel and threw it over to him, Shadow caught it with ease
"Get undressed and dried. otherwise you're going to catch a cold." I instructed him before leaving the room and closing the door, allowing him some privacy.
While Shadow was taking care of his clothes, I got myself something to drink and quickly downed it before making my way into the bedroom as I was exhausted after another day at work. It's probably more polite to stay awake when you had a guest over, but I knew that there was no way that Shadow was going to leave my apartment tonight, so I figured that I might aswell rest a little as I waited for him to finish.
I had fallen asleep as soon as I had hit the covers.

Morning came quickly. Too quickly. As I slowly woke up in bed, I immediatly noticed that I was still dead tired from the day before. And not only that, but I also noticed that I wasn't alone.
When I glanced down, I saw my ebony lover snuggling up against my chest, seemingly still in a deep sleep. After a quick glance at the digital clock that showed me it was only 6 in the morning, I decided that it was safe enough to stay in bed for a little longer.
Good, that meant I didn't need to wake Shadow up yet. I would feel bad to wake up him up when his lips wore such a content smile. Although, I knew it had to happen some time this morning. Shadow had to go home and I needed to go to work.
But not yet. For now, I was just going to let him sleep.
With a sigh of contentment, I wrapped an arm around him and held him close to me.
As I held him close to me, I noticed that he was wearing the button-up shirt that I wore the day before from my uniform. I didn't mind. Shadow's clothes were wet and he could hardly walk around naked, he needed some clothes to wear. And if those clothes happen to be mine, than so be it.
"Hmm? Sonic?" The teen in my arms muttered as he woke up. His eyes fluttered open and focussed on me. His smile, that had been wiped off of his muzzle in a moment of confusion, returned and this time a bit wider.
"Good morning." He said before kissing me. I quickly returned the gesture, deepening it and enjoying it now that I had the chance. Because of the age difference between us, we couldn't show all that much affection in public, but in here, where it was just the two of us, we didn't need to care about what other people thought.
As I deepened our kiss and forced Shadow roll over on his back, He closed his eyes as I let my torso hover over his.
"Sonic..." Shadow breathed as we pulled away and felt my lips tracing his neck. As my hand grasped and stroked through the quills on his head, my lover took the liberty of unbuttoning the shirt he had borrowed, revealing the tuft of white fur underneath, contrasting against the ebony.
I knew that it didn't matter if we were to let ourselves go now. It was just the two of us and no one else.
Although, my phone thought differently.
The sudden ringing of my ringtone caught us both of guard. My eyes narrowed when they rested on my phone lying casually on the nightstand. Shadow wore a light red tint as he looked away from me. He felt like someone had just walked in on us in the middle of the action.
I let my body rest on my lover's as I reached over for my phone and answered with an exasperated 'yes?'
"Well, good morning to you too, looks like I interrupted on the right moment. Tell me, what dirty things were you trying to make our Shadow do this time?" Rouge's teasing voice rang out from the other side of the phone. She couldn't keep a small laugh from escaping her lips.
"I'm sorry, I can't give you the full list right now, but I'll be happy to tell you at work." I retorted, hoping to throw her off. Shadow didn't like the comment and he showed it with a protesting fist against my chest. It didn't hurt, but it certaintly was noticable.
Rouge laughed again.
"I don't think Shadow would appreciate that very much. Anyway, the Chief asks if you mind coming to work earlier today. She says she'll reward you by paying overtime." She explained.
Well, I guess, there is no way of getting out of this.
"I'm on my way." I answered before telling her goodbye and hanging up.
Shadow, who had obviously been listening to the conversation, watched me with dissapointment in his eyes as I got up and looked for some fresh clothes in my closet. When my eyes fell upon a few articles, I didn't waste any time in dressing into them, not minding the teenager that watched my every move.
"I guess this means you already have to go, huh?" The said teenager asked once I had finished and taken a seat on the side of the bed.
"Yeah, but hey, we'll see eachother again. Especially considering your clingy behaviour." I teased, earning a glare from him.
"So that means I will need to go home." His sentence wasn't exactly a question, it was more of a statement as he already knew the answer.
"Yes, and no pickpocketing today!" I ordered and placed a hand on his leg, stroking it lightly with my thump. Shadow couldn't help but smile a little upon the touch.
"Fine, but I'm only doing this for you." He answered.
"I mean it, though. I don't want to go to work only to have you sitting in the interrogation room an hour later." I said, lecturing him like a parent would lecture a child.
"I promise you, I won't go out and search for trouble today. But in return I want you to take me to the movies! It's been close to forever since the last time you took me out!" Shadow tried to negotiate with me.
I couldn't help but laugh a little. It had, indeed, been a long time since the last time we had actually gone out and simply enjoyed eachother's company.
"Only if you keep your end of the bargain." I said, promising that I was going to take him out, but only if he kept his promise aswell.
Shadow nodded, promising me that he would stay out of trouble.

Shadow's POV

Even an hour after Sonic had left, I still hadn't moved an inch from my spot on the bed. I didn't really want to get up, but I knew that I needed to. I couldn't stay in bed for a whole day.
Although, that would mean no trouble for a whole day. Maybe I should consider staying in bed for today anyway. But Sonic wouldn't really appreciate that, would he? He did tell me to go home. Maybe it was better to do as he says instead. I wouldn't want to make him anymore angry.
Unwillingly, I got up from the bed and exited the bedroom to walk over to bathroom.  Upon entering, I checked to see if my clothes were dry yet. They were still a little damp, but since I didn't have any other clothes here, they will have to do.
After quickly dressing into my clothes and throwing Sonic's in the laundry bin, I made sure to lock Sonic's appartment and searched for the closest bus stop. I know that I have promised Sonic to go home, but I needed to stop by the police station first and give him his key before going. Otherwise he wouldn't be able to enter his own home anymore.
Unless he dropped by me first. And although, I did like the idea of that, it wouldn't be fair to him.
Close to ten minutes passed by when the bus finally arrived. I stood up from the bench and held up my hand, making the bus driver pull over. I quickly got on and took a seat as the bus began moving again.
As the bus drove down the road, I looked out of the window and watched our surroundings pass us by. The weather didn't look all that good today either. Yesterday started out nicely before grey clouds quickly gathered in the sky. That was not the case today. Instead, dark grey clouds were already looming ominously up above.
"Looks like a storm's coming." I muttered to myself. I guess, I was feeling a little dissapointed since we were still having such bad weather, even though it was already close to becoming Summer.
The bus stopped again and allowed its next passengers to hop on before driving again. I didn't pay them any mind until a figure, one that was rather familiar to me, stopped by my seat.
"Well, if it isn't The Drop-Out." A voice said as the owner's eyes had, regretfully, quickly fallen on me.
I sighed.
I looked up and saw a male hedgehog standing there, glaring at me. My eyes swiftly moved to look out the window, deciding that this particular hedgehog was not worth to waste my time on. I propped my head up on my elbow and tried to ignore the hedgehog's existence.
"Haven't seen you in a couple of months and not even an hello? I can see why your parents don't like you." The very epitome of annoyence retorted before searching his own seat, deciding not to waste his time on me either. Or maybe what little brain cells he could use to speak was wasted on trying to make me feel bad.
I didn't really care about him anymore. I used to go to school with him and all he ever did was pick on me with every chance he got. He and a few other random people I barely knew. That is, until I dropped out of school. I barely saw him anymore and therefore his interest in me dropped aswell. I'm one-hundred percent sure that he's found someone else to victimise by now.
It was May now, that means that I haven't gone to school in six months. My grades were good, but I didn't see the point in going. With parents like mine, I was never really going to get a fair chance anyway. And besides I've got Sonic to ask for help, right? I don't see us breaking up anytime soon. As unrealistic as that may sound, one can believe, right?
Of course, Sonic knows that I'm a drop-out and he often tells me how much of a waste throwing away my education was, but he hasn't convinced me to go back yet. It was too late now anyway. School year was almost over, no sense in going back now.
My bus stop appeared up ahead and the vehicle pulled over. I quickly hopped off and watched it go for a moment or two longer. Yeah, I guess, it did feel a bit strange to see someone I used to know after so long.
Shaking my head, I quickly pushed the thought and feeling to the back of my mind and walked down the sidewalk.

"Sonic's not here?" I asked one of my lover's co-workers, Tails, when he ran in to me in the hall and took the liberty to tell me that the one I was looking for was currently not here.
"No, he got called away for a robbery. It's going to take a while before he gets back. Did you want to see him about something?" He asked, looking down on me as I was much younger than him. Practically everyone was taller than me. Except for Amy. But she wasn't an adult either.
"I need to give him his house keys back." I said as I held a pair of keys up and handed it to the kitsune in front of me. One of his brows raised a little as he wondered what I was doing with Sonic's keys in my possession, but he didn't think any more of it as he took them and hid them in his pocket.
"I'll make sure he gets them." Tails promised me, nodding to emphasize his words.
"Thank you." I gratefully told him before turning on my heels and leaving the police station. I was grateful. This way I didn't need to sit in his office and wait for hours until he could finally return. Not that I have anything else to do, though.
Well, except for going home. But that could wait, couldn't it?
Sonic wouldn't approve, though. Maybe I should go.
With a sigh I decided that that was the next subject on my to-do list for today.

Once I stood in front of that house again, I began doubting my decision to come back home. But now that I was standing in front of the front door, I decided that I might aswell get it over with.
I walked up on the porch and opened the front door. The same unwelcoming air overwhelmed me, but I still forced myself to step inside.
I looked around the hallway as I carefully advanced forward. I didn't really know what to expect. There was a good chance that my dad wasn't home, but my mom...
"Shadow? Is that you, sweetie?" A voice rang out from the kitchen.
I tried to escape to my room before she noticed I was here, but it was already too late. Someone grabbed me by the sleeve of my sweater and pulled me towards her, holding me against her bossom.
"Oh Shadow, you're back! I thought you would never return home again." My mother said as she embrace me. Her grip on me tightened with every word she spoke. Her claws would've been digging in my skin if it wasn't for the sweater I wore.
"Y-yeah, I'm back." I answered.
"Hmm? What's wrong, sweetie? Aren't you going to hug your mother? We haven't seen eachother in some time, you know." She stated. A fake and oddly sweet tone laced her voice.
I wasted no time in wrapping my arms around her waist. It would be better not to make her mad. I don't want to risk it.
She let out a small giggle.
"I knew you loved me! Come with me and I'll make you some breakfast!" She said as she abruptly let go off me before walking over to the front door and locked it, giving me one of her smiles.
"Don't want you running away again, do we?" She sweetly said as she walked back to the kitchen.
I followed her and on my way I noticed that it was just the two of us. Dad wasn't home. As expected.
"Where's dad?" I casually asked, trying to start up a normal conversation.
"He's not here." Not even a second passed by before her voice answered my question. It sounded forced as she spoke. And the words were told so fast that I had almost missed them. Her sudden halt didn't exactly look reassuring either.
I waited and watched what she was going to do next.
A moment passed with nothing but silence between us. With every ticking second, my heart seemed to beat faster in my chest. She could be very unpredictable at times.
Mom turned to look over her shoulder and smiled, seemingly without a care in the world, before entering the kitchen.
A weight seemed to lift off of my shoulders and my heart calmed down a little.
Maybe this would be one of her better days.

Sonic's POV

"Focus, Sonic!" My current partner, Blaze, demanded as I got nearly hit by one of the stray bullets send flying through the room.
The robbery we were supposed to control had gone a bit out of hand. Our team had the criminals cornered and they resorted to taking hostages. They didn't give us the time to negotiate. They went straight to trying to kill us, threatening to shoot one of the hostages if we were to come closer.
Blaze and I were currently hiding behind some of the many crates that stood in the storage of the store. The criminals had fled to this part of the store in an attempt to escape.
Of course, we wouldn't let them. And they knew that. So in an attempt to scare us off, they decided to blindly start shooting. They weren't exactly one of the smartest bandits around. Their bullets would eventually run out.
Heh, it didn't matter if he had been caught multiple times by now, Shadow could definitely do better than these guys. He had proved that more than once.

Last year around Christmas, a sudden large amounts of thefts were being reported. Both owners of stores as house owners reported having a few of possessions missing, only to have them returned unharmed a couple of days later. Money was never involved. It was clear that the culprit just did it for kicks. Or maybe it was a way to relief pent-up frustration?
There were barely any witnesses. And he managed to escape the authorities' grasp every single time.
It wasn't until late February that I almost had my hands on him. I was surprised to discover that the one we were after was just a kid, so surprised that I had let him escape.
But circumstances had us meet again only a couple of weeks later in a shooting. Shadow, he told me his name was, had planned on breaking into the same facility, but had his plans ruined when these thugs came barging in with their guns.
After a short introduction and a little convincing to help from his side, we came to the agreement that we would team up and stal them long enough for reinforcements to arrive, but in return I was to let him go.
It was a dangerous mission to perform with a kid, but he pulled it off. His talent for escape had proven to be useful. Even though, the hedgehog himself said that it was just pure luck that we both came out without as much as a scratch.
When my boss found out that I had the infamous thief under my grasp and willingly let him escape, I got suspended for a few months. The city suddenly seemed so small after discovering Shadow's identity. It was suddenly so much easier to find him.
Around April I found myself questioning what he was doing, sitting on a parkbench instead of going to school. He just shrugged and after a couple of attempts, he finally told me that he had been skipping school. I began to lecture him about skipping school and soon found myself getting involved in his life.
When I practically knew his whole life, I didn't want to leave anymore. I felt like he needed help. And somewhere along those lines, I began to care more about him than I should.

I chuckled lightly. Why was I remembering something like that on a time like this? Was it because these particular bad guys were bad with escaping? Or was it the simple fact that I was worried about my lover?
I decided to go with the latter. Shadow needed to return to his parents after spending the night with me. They weren't exactly the nicest people around. That much was certain after all I had heard about them and seen the aftermath of what they had done. Well, what his mother had done. His father was just an ordinairy alcoholic deadbeat. His mom on the other hand... I'm not quite sure what to call her.
"Focus on the mission, Sonic!" Blaze growled to me as she was getting a bit sick of watching me space out in the middle of a job.
"Sorry." I quickly muttered before taking a peek over the crate when it had suddenly gone quiet.
I smirked. They had run out of bullets.
"Let's move." I said as I jumped from behind the safe protection of the crate.
It was now or never. We had to strike before they had the chance to reload their guns. And that is exactly what I did.
"Sonic, wait!" Blaze yelled as my actions were to rash.
I didn't listen to her call. As dangerous as this was, this was our shot and I wasn't going to let it go to waste.
One of the criminals gasped when he noticed I was only a few feet away from him all of a sudden. He couldn't react in time and I quickly kicked the gun out of his hand before subduing him, the hostage quickly ran for it.
Knowing that there was another one to deal with, Blaze decided to follow my example and swiftly jumped from behind the crate. She wasted no time in sprinting forward and taking the accomplice down while he was distracted by my sudden action.
On Blaze's word, reinforcements came barging in and took them away.
These were just two guys who really sucked at robbing a store, but they still gave us such a hard time. Why was I surprised we couldn't even catch a kid again?
"And that's another job done." I said in contentment as I watched the two criminals being taken away.
Blaze huffed. I looked at her as I knew that cat had a thing or two to say.
"'Another job done'? Sonic, you could've gotten yourself killed with your rash actions!" She lectured me.
"I know it was a little dangerous-"
"A little dangerous?! How would Shadow feel if he were to receive the news that you had gotten hurt, or worse, killed on the job!"
"Don't you dare drag Shadow into this!" I yelled at her, suddenly feeling just as angry as she did. I didn't like people involving him into matters that had nothing to do with him. Weither it was to hurt me or to hurt him, I didn't want to hear another word.
Blaze kept silent and walked away instead of answering. She knew of my protective behaviour when it came to Shadow and therefore stopped our 'argument' right there, knowing that she had made me think about my actions now that she had involved Shadow into this.
And making me think, she did.
I sighed as I, just like she had predicted, imagined how Shadow would react upon hearing the news of my death. It was not something I wanted him to go through. I crossed my arms in front of my chest as I still stood in the storage, thinking. Shadow was all I had. And I know that I am all he has. Maybe I should think twice before taking action next time.

I didn't waste any time getting back to my office after everything was taken care off. I was glad when I could finally exit the car and get warm and dry inside. It had started to rain again. I was lucky that it was a short walk from the car to the front entrance. Otherwise I would've been soaked in a matter of few moments.
I made my way into my office and dropped down on the chair that stood in front of my desk. A report should be made about the robbery, but it was Blaze's turn today. So I didn't need to worry about that now.
But as soon as I looked at my mobile phone, I got something else I could worry about.
No messages.
It might seem a little strange to be concerned about having no messages at all. No news is good news, right? I wasn't so sure about that. Shadow usually sends a text when he arrives at his house or back at my apartment. He hadn't done that this time. Of course, that could just mean that he has forgotten it and would send one later, but I still kept the lack of messages in the back of my mind.
Maybe I should send one myself?

Shadow's POV

I gasped when I suddenly felt my phone shortly vibrated in my pocket, indicating that I had a text. Placing the fork down on my plate and subtly attempted to look who texted me, but it didn't stay as hidden as I would've wanted.
"Hmm? What's wrong, Shadow? Is that your phone? You know the rules, no texting at the table. So go on and put it away." My mother said as she had easily noticed my attempt.
"Yes, of course." I hesitantly said as I stood up and took my phone out of my pocket before placing it on the dresser in the livingroom. But before returning to the kitchen, I took a quick peek at who had texted me.
'Are you okay?' It read.
Sonic? I must've forgotten to send him a text. I should send him one quickly, I know that he must be worried right now. He's always so easily concerned about me.
I hate to worry him, but it made me smile a little.
"Shadow?" I could hear my mom call my name as I was taking too long. After placing my phone down, I hurried back into the kitchen and took my seat again.
My ears twitched a little as my eyes narrowed just a tad bit in confusion. I could've sworn she looked angry just a split second ago, but when I looked at her now, she was smiling as she continued to eat her meal. I decided to follow her example and carefully began eating my own.
"Who was it?" Mother suddenly asked when her plate was empty.
I was a little startled. It had been silent for a long time while we ate, I hadn't expected her to say something out of nowhere.
Her smile widened a little.
"Did you jump? What's wrong, sweetie? Do you have a guilty conscience?" She asked.
"It was a friend of mine. He asked if we had homework due to tomorrow." I quickly lied. Mom wasn't fond of Sonic and I didn't want to make her angry. So I thought that lying was easier than telling her the truth.
Mom was a bit dissapointed that I didn't answer her question, so she answered to my explanation instead.
"A friend? You don't have any friends in school. You only have bullies in school." She stood up from her chair and casually walked over to my seat and placed her worn hands on my shoulders with a grip that was somewhat tight. She looked down at me, her long hair, that obviously hadn't been washed in a long while, was covering her face as she loomed over me.
"You don't have friends. Because I'm your friend, right? Your father is not your friend either, because I am." She stated as she smiled, her grip on my shoulders tightening.
"Yes, of course!" I quickly answered and felt her grip soften before letting go of me and tending to the dishes.
I watched her. My ears were flat against my head and my body was tensed up, muscles contracted as my chest was still clearing the nervousness it had felt. Only one thought ran through my mind, it wished so badly for Sonic to suddenly come walking in through the front door and take me back to his apartment, back where it was safe.
I swallowed as I tried to relax my body. It was no use wishing for Sonic. I was to stay at home for tonight. I could do that right? It's just for one night.
Mom looked over her shoulder and smiled at me.
I smiled back. Maybe she was in a good mood today.

It was late at night when dad finally came home.
I watched from the doorway of the livingroom as he came staggering inside. He climbed the stairs with much difficulty as he was obviously drunk. The unmistakable stench of alcohol reached my nose. It wasn't hard to guess where he had been all day.
"Dad?" I muttered, although I knew I wasn't going to receive an answer. My father looked over his shoulder in a daze as he heard his title being called, but couldn't pinpoint where the voice came from. So he just continued his way up the stairs in a drunken haze.
My eyes narrowed in a disapproving look and my arms crossed in front of my chest as I watched him go. I mentally questioned the reason why he always had to get himself this drunk before returning home, but found myself without answers.
I sighed and let my arms fall by my side again. It was no use contemplating about matters I probably didn't know much about. After all, I barely spend time here now that I had Sonic to return too. Maybe he's drinking for a different reason besides mom's moodswings, my birth and our money problems.
"Shadow..." The familiar voice of my mom called my name, but it didn't sound as sugarcoated as it did before dad had returned home.
I slowly turned around to face her. The nervousness I had often felt earlier today had returned, but it turned into fear when her angry eyes glared at me.

First in pool
Last in pool
Hi everyone!
This is the story I will be working on for aslong as I have a lack of inspiration for 'A Way Out!', but thisdoesn't mean that I have abandoned that story. It will just be put on hold until I know how to continue it. It won't be put on hold for long, though.

If you're wondering, Shadow's 15 and Sonic is 25. That makes an age difference of ten years.

Anyway, I would really appreciate it if you placed a comment down below and shared your thoughts about the first chapter of my new story. You have no idea how much I appreciate it. ^^

You'd be surprised how many people call sexual scenes in fanfiction 'lemons'. XD

lol I noticed that in one of your other stories, I near about died when I saw lemons and I was like, 'what??' XDDDD lol lemons, that makes me laugh haha XP
SonadowKokoro100

I agree. We shouldn't call them 'lemons'. We should call them 'oranges' instead! XD

Because if life gives you lemons, you don't accept them and give those lemons right back!

Yey! I just finished reading the first chapter! >/////<

This is such an intriguing story and allow me to say that I am quite interested at the plot for this one because it has a police theme to it. =3 It's enjoyable to follow Sonic's journey in the police force. Being a cop really suits him ^////^

The age difference you pointed here is surprising. Both Shadow and Sonic were really written well with respect to their current age in this story and I absolutely love the fact that you have made Shadow indeed a fifteen year old boy who fell in love with someone older than him. It's really cute to look at their chemistry together. A responsible adult cop and a young delinquent. :D

 I love the fact that Shadow has only been thieving in order to get closer to his beloved. It was so adorable seeing him find ways to get close to him. Sonic is just like his comfort zone in his chaotic life. Ahaha, I clearly love how Sonic is like a responsible adult guiding Shadow in his path. Their relationship is like a mixture of romantic and platonic love. X3

Shadow's thieving skills astound me at the same time his determination is impressive. :D Thinking about his life and the things he'd been through, it's really understandable that Shadow only wanted someone to complete him or perhaps someone who could give him the love that he had never experienced. Judging from his family, Shadow definitely lacks familial love which contributed to his juvenile acts. It's sad to think about it. :(

An alcoholic father and a mother that most probably has been abusing him judging from her odd gestures towards her son. I truly felt sorry for Shadow. He doesn't deserve that kind of life. In fact, I've been wishing with him that Sonic would come bursting through the doors to take him away from that place.. >,<

Really amazing story! :D Thanks for another awesome read! :D Now I'm off to the 2nd chapter X3

Yay! X3

Cop Sonic is always a yes! XD
Police themes can make for very interesting stories. So many ideas, so many possibilities! eue

A fifteen year old and a twenty-five year old, that is something that will only be acceptable on fiction. =3 I am quite against it myself in the real world. XD I'm glad I could write their character according to their age.
Cop Sonic, best Sonic. XD
Delinquent Shadow, best Shadow. XD

Well, Shadow's thieving has only been to nab Sonic's undivided attention as of late. It wasn't always like that. But yes, now he'd do alot of things to get his older lover's attention.

It's always sad to hear about abusive families and what parents can do to their own children behind closed doors. Often children like Shadow, in this case, can lash out, get into trouble. Who can blame them? Often that's a cry for help. Shadow's case isn't even the worst. :/

No, thank you for taking the time to read it and leave such a long comment! X3
