Part 83

Shadow shook his head. Then there was knock on the door. “Who could that be?” Shadow wondered and got up to answer it. He opened the door and there stood a bandaged, wounded, and angry Sonic “Sonic?! What on Mobius are you doing here?! You should be in bed!” Shadow helped him inside and to the couch.

“I’m here to talk with Jet!” The hawk stiffened.

“What do you want? I don’t have a ton of time. I have to pick up my girlfriend in a half hour.”

“She is not your girlfriend!!!” Sonic cried.

“So says you! Your just jealous!”

Tabby and Shadow glanced at each other then slipped into the bedroom. They could still her Sonic and Jet.

“When on Mobius did you even start liking her?!” Sonic questioned,

“The night we saved her and the other girls.” replied Jet.

“Thought it would be fun to try and take her from me?!”

“What?! No!” the hawk exclaimed. “She needed me! She needed someone she could talk to! You know, she refused to talk for a long time!”

“She what?!”

“She refused to talk because the only one who she thought she could tell everything to was gone and she didn’t know where to turn. I helped her. I comforted her. I did what she wanted you to do! I was with her more and more and she came to feel towards me like she felt towards you. And I came to feel the way you feel about her!”

“But-“

“If you if you don’t believe me you can ask Nicole or Shadow!”

“Shadow?”

“He’s telling the truth!” Shadow called from the bedroom. Tabby nearly laughed at Shadow’s exasperated expression. “What!?” Shadow whispered, “I don’t want to be dragged into it!”

“I don’t blame you.” Tabby whispered back. They heard Sonic again.

“Well, I appreciate the help and care you gave her, but she’s still my girlfriend!”

“Look, Sonic, can we please stop fighting over this?” Jet sounded worn out, “Sally hates it when we fight, so let’s not. Can we at least agree on that?”

“Huh? Uh… sure.”

“Thank you. Listen, I only have, like, ten minutes. How about this? Tomorrow we’ll meet at the soda shop in the city and talk things over. Ok?” Tabby and Shadow held their breath.

“… fine…” Sonic consented

“Good. Now, I gotta go pick up my girlfriend.”

“She is not your girlfriend!!!!!!”

“Later!”
