Part 87

“We watched a movie and ate marshmallows.” was Shadow’s answer.

“What movie?”

“Sonic OVA.”

“Sonic has his own movie?” inquired Jet, surprised.

“Um, yeah. I can see Tabby not knowing, but you? How did you not know?”

“Well, I usually try to ignore Sonic as much as possible.”

“Ok,” chuckled Shadow, “that I understand.”

“Where’s the cat?”

“Tabby’s in bed.”

“Well, I think I’ll follow him.” sighed the Rogue, “I’m gonna need energy if I’m gonna face Sonic tomorrow. You sure you don’t mind me taking the other bed?”

“Yeah I’m sure.” Shadow reassured him, “I don’t actually need sleep anyway. I’m fine in here. Night.”

“Ok. Night dude.” Jet left and Shadow returned to his book. Eventually Shadow drifted off to sleep while reading.

The next day Jet set out for the cafe. Sally was meeting him there for breakfast.

“Hi Jet!” Sally greeted him.

“Hey Sall!” he smiled, “How are you this morning?”

“Good. You?”

“Great!”

“You busy this afternoon?” she asked.

“Sorry to say I am and I’m not too excited about the plans I’ve made.”

“What are they?”

“Can’t tell you.”

“What?! You can’t tell me? But we tell each other everything!” Jet grinned at her.

“Sorry my Princess, but today I,” he kissed her hand, “I cannot say.”

“Aww. You rhymed!” Sally giggled. Jet thought then frowned.

“I didn’t mean to.”

“It was cute.” Sall told him.

“Great.” Jet said sarcastically, “Now I’m cute.”

“You’re always cute.”

“I don’t like being cute.” he confessed

“I like it when you’re cute.”

“Well, then. If you like it I will be cute for you.”

“Hee! You’re so sweet!”

“Great. Now, I’m sweet.” Sally rolled her eyes and smiled.

“Come on my cute sweetie!” she laughed, “Let’s get some pancakes!”

“Ok, but please don’t call me that.”

“You said please, so I’ll stop.”

“Thank you.”

“Oooh. You’re such a gentleman!” Jet face palmed and grinned.
