Part 15

He explained that he had been missing her quite a bit lately and he was often sad about it. He told about his memories that came to him often, including the ice skating. Sonic listened carefully and waited for Shadow to finish.
“So you have been upset over Maria? Is that all or is there something else?” Shadow thought. Would he dare tell Sonic what was really bothering him?
“There is something else…” He said after a pause, “I have been dealing with something…”
“Yeah?” Shadow looked at Sonic.
“Can I trust you with a secret bigger than any I’ve already told you?”
“Shadow, you know you can.”
“OK I think it’s best to tell you because you’re the only one who would be able to help.” Than Shadow explained his situation with Amy and Sonia. He even told him about the kiss in the woods. Sonic was amazed. His sister had never made any sign of liking Shadow before. “I don’t know what to do any more. I’m just so confused!” Shadow cried.
“Now that I think about it Sonia was acting weird this morning… but I never would have expected this.”
“What should I do?”
“Well first you need to decide something.”
“What’s that?”
“Do you have feelings for either of them?” Sonic’s question hit Shadow hard. He had no idea. Not really but, he wasn’t sure.
“I don’t know.”
“Well… maybe, unless she comes after you, it’s best to let Manic have Amy. You know, he was jealous of you.”
“What?”
“When he saw that she had dressed like you he got upset.”
“I had no clue! I guess he doesn’t like me very much.”
“He isn’t very thrilled.”
“I bet Amy is confused too.”
“Shadow, do you want me to talk to her for you? I can find out who she likes.”
“No! I think I should just wait it out and see what happens.”
“OK” They were silent a moment, “Do you want to cancel the lesson?”
“What time is it?”
“I don’t know.” Shadow reached into his box, which was still out, and got the watch, “It’s noon. Let’s make lunch then see if we want to do one.” They made some chili dogs and ate. When they finished Shadow looked over to Sonic. “Do we want to have a lesson?”
