Sonaze: Hot Chocolate
December. A month that was filled with Ornaments, Hot Chocolate, Gifts, and a warm fire to keep its residents of Mobius warm! Sonic the Hedgehog had prepared for that very special occasion! He had put on a long green and blue striped scarf, and a more upgraded version of his gloves! They helped warm his hands under freezing temperatures during the harshness of the weather like tonight!
Upon approaching the door, he felt an odd chill run down his spine. This chill wasn’t the kind of chill he got from running in the cold weather no! This feeling could only be because of one thing only! The ice beneath his feet should he choose to run.
“I really don’t feel like slipping on ice. I really, really don’t!”
Although Sonic felt like staying in, he knows that he has to fight the cold if he really wants to help Tails. Tonight's New Year's Eve as a party was yet to be set up by none other than his best friend! Sonic wouldn’t miss it for the world no matter the condition of the weather.
The hedgehog left out without hesitation as he sped down the street! The weather was forgiving as the snow fell slowly. Lights around the city came alive as street lamps and posts shone their lights. Sonic strolled through town as he neared his destination.
”Coming in hot! Kinda wondering what Tails actually did with the place.”
Sonic skidded to a halt as he reached the gym. He arrived at the back entrance of the place as he began to lightly knock.
“Tails? Buddy! You in there?-”
Sonic waited for a few seconds before the door flew open! A hand quickly came out as it pulled him into the darkened room!
“Hey! Where’s the-?”
Sonic recognized the voice.
“Tails?! Dude! What’s going on?”
“Ah! Dude! My eyes!”
Sonic quickly wiped his eyes as his vision began clearing up.
“Now what did you wanna show me-?”
Abruptly, he ceased all conversation as he stared in awe of the creation in front of him! Ornaments from red, white, and green! Decorative snowflakes hung from the ceiling as they came alive with blue and yellow colors! Sonic was definitely awestricken with the beauty of the lights as it wrapped him in it’s mesmerizing colors.
“You think that’s awesome Sonic? Here’s something even cooler!”
Tails flipped the lights off once more as the lights grew ever more iridescent! The lights were interchangeable as the colors began to mix! From different angles the lights turned from blue and yellow to a luminescent green!
“You did this Tails?”
Tails showed his confident smile before responding to the hedgehog.
“You bet! You’re stunned! Nice! That tells me I’m gonna use this for the party!”
Sonic snapped out of his transcendence and straightened himself up.
“That is way past cool Tails! Gotta hand it to ya! You really are the world’s best mechanic!”
Sonic threw a thumbs up to Tails.
“Thanks Sonic! I knew this was a good idea! Now the party is happening at Al’s Gym. Don’t forget to show up.”
Sonic scratched the back of his head as he looked around at the workshop.
“Any surprises I should know about Tails?”
The fox’s ears perked up at the question.
“Hmm. There was something else.”
The fox sat back as he began to think. In an instant he became enlightened as the memory came back to him.
“Oh! Right. Dude. Now I know that you hate it when I do those “Date The Hero” auctions…”
Sonic violently shook his head.
“No! We all know how bad that went last time! I’m not doing that for a long, long time!”
Tails tried to explain as he managed to stop the rambling hedgehog.
“Wait! Listen! I think you’re going to like this idea!”
Sonic stopped himself to give his buddy a chance to explain.
“Alright Tails. This better be good.”
Tails took in a deep breath to calm himself down.
“Okay. So! I’ve created a New Year’s Gown for the party...”
Sonic was already dreading the idea that Tails was presenting to him.
“...and there will be a woman in that dress..."
Sonic’s thought instantly went to Amy. It put an imminent fear in his eyes. Tails noticed this and automatically reassured him.
“...and no it won’t be Amy…”
After hearing this, he let out a breath of relief.
“...but there will be a vote as to who gets to dance with the lady wearing it!”
Sonic cockily chuckled.
“Well! Heheh! Since I’m already a candidate, everyone will definitely vote for me right?”
Sonic was practically rolling in his heroism.
“Heh. Depends on who’s gonna be in the dress dude!”
Sonic became curious at the young fox.
“Well who’s gonna be in the dress?”
Tails immediately formed a sly smile on his face.
“Now that my friend is a surprise!”
The way Tails said had made Sonic worry just a tiny bit.
“Something tells me I’m in for it. Alright little buddy, I’m gonna hang outside for a bit. I’ll be back in later so we can get this party started!”
Tails threw him a thumbs up.
“Catch ya later then dude!”
Sonic nodded. He scratched the back of his head as he got himself ready to head back out into the wintry mix!
“Alright bud! I’ll see you in a minute!”
Sonic made a quick salute before he sped out of the gym!
As he ran down the streets and the buildings began passing him by, the hero had felt like relaxing! Even though the temperature dropped many degrees, he felt as if he could still enjoy the days like he used to before! While he couldn’t run, he could handle sitting down and watching the snow fall on the ground! This is but one of the moments Sonic would take to actually stop running and just relax!
He came across a park nearby! It’s trail appeared with the help of the street lamps lighting the way as he made his way down! As he walked, he began to think about the party and who all was going to be there! He knew for sure that Amy would be there, which sent a gulp down Sonic’s throat.
”Let me try and not think about Amy for the moment!”
Sonic began to turn his attention to the snow. He thought about Shadow, Rouge, Knuckles, Silver, The Chaotix Team, and Cream! He noticed how happy all of them looked with each other and wondered about the future ahead. He wondered about the many different friends he would come across along with the ones that he had.
”Being alone as the Fastest Thing Alive sure is fun, but it would be nice to have someone with me to enjoy it.”
As he reached a park bench, he sat on the wooden planks beneath him. All the while he began to wrap the scarf he wore around his face to keep warm. He began rubbing his hands as his comforters started up. It warmed his palms as the snow continued to fall on the ground and pile up.
Sonic’s ears perked up as he heard a scratching noise behind him! He stood up and turned around as he noticed a familiar figure skating on the ice!
“Blaze! I forgot she was invited! I don’t know how I even forgot in the first place! *Sigh* Probably should say hey before we head to the party.
Sonic strolled down towards the lake as the ice Blaze skated upon left white trails from the blades on her feet! Snow had covered the grass on which Sonic had stepped upon. The closer he got to her, the more he became stunned at the elegant execution of twirls and jumps Blaze performed! With each jump and twirl, Blaze swiftly landed for every single one of them!
Her attire was perfect as she wore a similar version of her jacket! This time it was laced with a yellow trail along the sides of her purple jacket with matching boots! Her cuffs were furrier for the Winter as a dark reddish scarf covered the bottom half of her face.
All Sonic could do was sit there and watch as the crescendo of the beautiful performance came to a close!
“*Sigh!* Wow. She is so beautiful! I’ve never seen her skate before! It feels like I’m at the Olympics all over again!”
Blaze had finished her run on the lake with a perfect 720 degree turn! As she skated around the lake once more, her ears suddenly perked up as her eyes instantly fixated on Sonic!
She skated towards him in slight embarrassment! She expertly hid it as she neared the hedgehog.
The Princess did her best to hide her flustered behavior as the hedgehog greeted her.
“Greetings my friend! To what do I owe this meeting?”
Sonic scratched his head in complete nervousness.
“Heh well! You know! I uh…”
Blaze couldn’t help but notice the hedgehogs behavior as she began to giggle softly.
“Don’t worry Sonic! I know you’ve been observing my performance on the ice.”
After hearing this, Sonic reset himself as he returned to his regular behavior.
“I had a feeling you did. I just came by to say hi! Didn’t expect to see ya while skating on the ice! I’ve gotta admit! That was too cool!”
Blaze couldn’t hide her blushing. The nervousness felt by Sonic was now pushed on to Blaze as she too became speechless.
“T-thank you Sonic. I appreciate the compliment!”
They both stood there in an awkward silence. None of the two said anything as the snow began to fall on each other. Then an idea formed in the hedgehog’s mind as he broke the silence.
“Well, hey! I got some time for a little bit of fun on the ice before the party! You can join me if you want!”
Sonic reached down and tapped the sides of his shoes as sharp blades appeared from the soles of his feet!
“Whaddaya say Blaze?”
Blaze smiled softly at the hedgehog as she considered his offer.
“I might need to refine my skills a bit more!”
Sonic nodded as he held out his hand for the Princess.
Blaze hesitated slightly before letting her instincts take hold. She quickly took the hedgehog’s hand as the two skated out onto the ice! Sonic had watched on as Blaze performed more of her skillful turns and flips! The more he watched her, the more he began to notice the extravagant flexibility of the Princess.
Blaze did a few more as she finished with a 1080 spin as a flame corkscrewed its way to the top of her head! This in itself had amazed the hedgehog as he witnessed Blaze using her powers in a way he never thought possible! She approached the hedgehog with as a small smile formed on her face.
“*Whistle! Whistle!* That was fantastic! I’ve never seen you do that before!”
The lavender cat became more flustered at the appraisal given to her.
“I’ve had much time to practice on both of our worlds.”
Sonic nodded in agreement.
“No kidding Blaze! Alright! Now it’s my turn.”
Sonic skated off as Blaze watched from a distance! Sonic began with a few turns as he skated backwards! He did a quick front flip as he turned around once more. He readied himself and jumped high as he did a 1080 in the air!
Blaze became amazed at the skill Sonic had never really shown much to other people.
”Sonic is very talented. Not only can he rival my speed, but he can also rival my talents!”
He landed down hard as he gained speed. Sonic made a perfect spiral as he jumped in the air once more! Creating a small funnel in the air as he gained momentum! He landed down with grace again as he gained much more speed!
Blaze couldn’t believe the sight before her eyes as she was astounded by the grace!
”How long can this hedgehog keep this going?”
Sonic came back down, but he began to lose his balance! The speed he was traveling had made him lose control of his curves around the lake!
“Uh-oh! NOT GOOO-!”
In an instant, Sonic was thrown headfirst into the snow as Blaze went to help him! The Blue Blur was deep into the thick mound as he struggled.
“Sonic! Are you alright?!”
Sonic weakly put a thumbs up into the air. Blaze came around the mound as she melted the snow above! The hedgehog was able to easily pull himself out as he stood up and began wiping the snow off of his scarf.
“Ouch. Note to self. Maintain speed.”
Blaze giggled at the hilarious moment.
“Hehe! You need to maintain speed! Not gain speed Sonic! That’s a good way to end up in the snow!”
Sonic shook the rest of the snow off of himself.
“Said the Princess way too late! *Ha…HACHOO!* Oookay...now I’m stuffed up. *Ha..!* Nope! Holding this sne-*HACHOO!* No. No! Not now! I can’t be sick!”
Blaze tried her best to not laugh, as it led to more giggling! Sonic turned the other way as the sneezes frequently grew!
“Aw man! I really didn’t want to get sick today! Thanks a lot Winter!”
Sonic managed to get it out as Blaze handed him a box of tissues. He grabbed one as he wiped his nose and threw it in a nearby trash. He turned back around to face Blaze as he noticed something he had never noticed before!
“Hey. I never really saw it until now, but you have the biggest smile! I’ve seen you smile a couple times, but not as big as this.”
Blaze tried her best not to blush, but failed as her cheeks burned red hot.
“I...I never noticed either. I guess it’s because of you that I am this way.”
“Hey! No problem! The World’s Fastest Hedgehog is there for anyone!”
Blaze lowered her head down as she began brooding. Sonic stood there looking around for a minute before he focused his attention back on Blaze. She raised her head back up to look at him.
“I think I can help you out with that cold you have. Follow me.”
Blaze headed off in the opposite direction of the lake with Sonic following suit. They reached land as a bag awaited them on sight. She opened the zipper as she brought out a small coffee cup. She handed it to the hedgehog as he took in the aroma.
“Wow! That’s strong! Smells good too! What is this?”
Blaze took a seat in the grass above before responding.
“Just drink up Sonic. It’s a surprise for the party!”
Sonic did as he was told as he chugged down the luxurious drink! Sonic was in a state of euphoria as the taste that touched his tongue made him melt! The rich and creamy mixture had made it’s way down as he enjoyed every minute of it! It was mildly hot due to the weather cooling it down, but the taste was all the same!
“Ohhh...jeez...That. Was. Perfect!”
Blaze found herself smiling. The recipe she made for the party was a success! If Sonic enjoyed as much as he did, then the rest of the guests would love it too!
“I’m glad you enjoyed it! I’m sure everyone else will too.”
Sonic joined her on land as he sat next to her satisfied. He held the cup with his two hands as his knees bent up to his chest.
“You got that right! This is the best drink I’ve ever had!”
Blaze looked back out onto the lake as the ice covered over the horizon. The clouds in the air had covered over many of miles offshore with its wind piercing the skin of those who dare go out with no garments. Sonic looked over at his watch that he wore on the way out.
“We have 15 minutes left. I think we should sit here before we go. Take in the sights.”
Blaze nodded in agreement as they continued looking out. SIlence was the only thing that lingered in the air that begged for something to fill the void!
“So! What’s on your mind Blaze?”
Blaze took a deep breath before responding.
“Well. Not much I’m sorry to say. I can only think about what you’ve said to me in the past about our friendship.”
Sonic took a long look at her as to understand his relationship with her.
“Well like I said! As long as you have the power of friendship, nothing can go wrong!”
At this point, Blaze had a moment of self-loathing. She discreetly discarded the thought as she put all of her attention to Sonic.
“And right you were. I’m deeply sorry for the hostility I displayed towards you Sonic. I never saw the gift in friendship like I do now.”
Sonic wiped himself once more as the snow covered his scarf and fur.
“It’s no biggie. I knew you weren’t yourself and I decided to help you out!”
Blaze comprehended the words of Sonic, but something didn’t make sense to her.
“But why did you keep pushing? Even after I showed you no interest you still kept on! Why?”
Sonic set the cup down as he prepared himself for a serious conversation.
Sonic who took caution in his actions grasps her gently by both hands as she turned to him.
“You’re my best friend! I kept pushing because I knew that somewhere deep down, was the real you! I kept pushing because I can’t let anyone die because I do nothing to help them! Blaze, you have to understand that true friends help each other out no matter how bad the situation may get!”
Blaze couldn’t respond due to the awe-inspiring speech! If she didn’t know any better, she would dub him an advisor in her kingdom if he were from her world.
“Blaze. Don’t become your own worst enemy. Trust me. I’ve been there.”
Blaze nodded as she came to understand and appreciate the power of friendship even further! In this very moment she was able to fully grasp the meaning behind that certain power she had yet to show to the best of her ability.
“Sonic...I can never repay this act of kindness you have shown me tonight.”
Sonic smiled lightly.
“I can think of one way.”
In a mere moment, Sonic did the unthinkable! He quickly wrapped his arms around the Princess who had sat there shocked in his embrace! She had never been touched by anyone or even embraced in the way that Sonic did. Blaze had lost all sense of a guarding attitude as the hedgehog finally broke the last wall she had put up for herself!
“Don’t you ever fade on me Blaze. I’d end my life if something happened to you.”
Blaze purred within the hedgehogs embrace as she automatically embraced him back. Sonic rubbed her back as she purred in euphoria by this.
“Thank you Sonic...Thank you for helping me become who I am.”
Sonic held on for a few seconds before both of them released each other.
“You’re welcome Blaze.”
Sonic looks at his watch as he realizes the time!
“Crud! We gotta go! The Party is gonna start any minute now!”
Both of the heroes stood as Sonic caringly helps Blaze with her things. Both of the heroes got themselves in position.
She nods to him.
Sonic crouched down with Blaze’s bag on his shoulder.
Both had arrived at Al’s Gym as the lights inside were on! Sonic scratched behind his ears nervously. He clipped on a bowtie with as he put on a black vest as he sharpened his quills.
“I really hope we aren’t late!”
Sonic opened the door as Blaze followed behind him. As they went inside, Sonic was welcomed by a huge number of guests! Rouge, Amy, Shadow, Knuckles, Marine, Cream, and Team Chaotix! Vector worked the playlist while Espio hung in the back, and Charmy who was talking the night away! Many other Mobians had joined as a whopping 4,000 residents had joined in the New Year’s Festivities!
“Wow! Hey guys!”
Tails approached Sonic and Blaze.
“Dude! Right on time!”
Sonic saluted Tails.
“Hey! Where else would I be?”
Tails chuckled in excitement as he turned to Blaze.
“Hey Blaze! Here! Let me show you where to put the dessert!”
Blaze smiled as she followed Tails. All the while as Sonic strayed from his friends as the songs played on, Vector who was controlling the playlist had come over to join the Blue Blur. Sonic leaned against the wall as the Crocodile took a swig of his beer.
“Alright Sonic. Whaddaya doin’ out here? Shouldn’t ya be dancin’ with everyone?”
Sonic looked around as a smile formed on his face.
“For all of the times I saved the world, I really don’t feel like dancing is on my to-do list.”
Vector took another swig.
“Ah. Got the blues huh? I got a feelin’ that you’re missin’ out on the best thing life has ta offer ya.”
Sonic raised an eyebrow at the Crocodile.
“And what do you think that is?”
Vector chuckled at the question.
“You gotta open them eyes first. Think about it this way. Who are ya always gonna see by the second life passes right by ya huh?”
Sonic knew where the Crocodile was getting at, but he didn’t know just who he was talking about.
“It’s a lot like Hot Chocolate Sonic. It can last ya even if it gets cold.”
Vector stood off the wall to face Sonic and puts a hand on his shoulder.
“You’ll see who I’m talkin’ about very soon fella. In fact, you’ve already met her.”
Vector headed back to controlling the playlist as Sonic brooded on Vector’s words deeply.
“Heheh. Hot Chocolate. It lasts even if it gets cold-!”
“Everyone! I have an announcement!”
Sonic’s thought was interrupted as Tails took the stage. The lights immediately went out as the stage lights focused on Tails.
“Tonight is the night that everything starts over! Our friends, families, and even heroes can start over once again as another year passes by. Now I’ve invited over a very special guest who’s going to represent the start of this New Year! And might I say she is looking very beautiful tonight! Ladies and Gents, I present to you…”
Tails gestured to the right as Sonic stood up and followed the eyes of the crowd. Sonic made his way to the front to get a good view as he was wondering who the person in the dress was!
A spotlight illuminated on the Princess. Sonic was petrified at the beauty of the lavender feline as she softly approached closer to the middle of the gym. Out of everyone who had their jaws dropped, Sonic had beaten them all as his mouth was agape! The silhouette of the dress included a whitish-blue color with gleaming snow patterns along the bottom. The upper part of the gown was endowed with a darkened blue color with her chestpiece laced with white streaks running down to her waistline! Her neckline had been fitted with a beautiful snowflake necklace that glistened in the spotlight as it clung tightly to her.
Her overall makeup had been fitted with white highlights on her eyelids with her eyelashes extended. Her cheeks had been colored using blue colored blush. Her lips were painted blue as the smile she slightly showed was enough to perfect the beauty of the dressed up Cat.
“I can tell that everyone is astounded by this sight! It’s planted right there on your faces! Good lord!”
Everyone in the crowd started laughing at the jokester. Tails started chuckling himself at his own spontaneous attitude.
“Alright! So, if you all would be so kind to look to your left, you will see a sign that says ‘Voting Starts Here!’”
Everyone including Sonic had looked over as he began to remember that he was one of the candidates to dance with Blaze. Fear had struck the hedgehog almost immediately as his heart began to race!
“Now I’ve only chosen a few select candidates to dance with the Princess! Who shall dance with her is totally up to you! Voting begins now!”
The lights came back on as Blaze disappeared into the back of the stage. Sonic began to freak out at the situation he’s found himself in!
”Oh. Oh no no no no NO! It’s gonna be really awkward if I dance with Blaze! Argh! Why’d I have ta agree with this?! *Sigh* Only thing I can do now is hope that my name doesn’t rise over any other candidate.”
After the votes were delivered to Tails and the numbers by a professional were evaluated, the fox came back to the stage as the lights turned off once more with the commotion dimming down to absolute silence. Tails held an envelope that reveals the winner of the votes! Even he didn’t know the top pick that lied inside of it!
“*Ahem!* So. Wow! You guys were really fast! Over 4,000 of you showed up tonight, and it only took everyone an hour and 25 minutes for you guys to get your votes in! Even I’m not that fast!”
Sonic felt his heart skipping as he noticed Blaze returning to the center of the gym in her dress. Her eyes traveled around the room until her sights stopped on Sonic. Her heart skipped a beat as she began to feel something rising in her heart. She was able to keep calm as she focused on the reason why she’s here.
”Steady Blaze. Whatever you’re feeling, you can easily let it go.”
Tails looked back down to the envelope as he continued on.
“So! Let’s get this show on the road huh?”
Tails lifted the blue pendant on the envelope as the paper inside was neatly folded up.
“Ladies and gentlemen! Drum roll please!”
Tails pulls out the paper as he opens it up! In that next moment, his face became still for a split second! A smile immediately formed on his face as he begins to speak.
“Sonic the Hedgehog!”
At those words, Sonic lost all sense of footing as his mind tried to process his name that was just spoken seconds ago. Tails noticed the stone-faced hedgehog as he successfully contained his laughter.
“Come on out here Sonic!”
Sonic shut his emotions down as he faked his smile and walked off to the center of the stage! He turned to face Blaze as she let out the same awkward smile. The crowds began to cheer and clap for both Sonic and Blaze as the hedgehog tried to play it cool! The cheering dimmed as Tails returned to speak.
“And now the candidate and the Princess shall dance! With appropriate music of my choice of course. Give a big thanks to Vector from the Chaotix Detective Agency for handling the music!”
Applause began to emanate from the crowd once more as Vector took a bow.
“Now, would you please be so kind as to hit the play button for me?”
Vector nodded as he turned on a slow dancing song. A modern one at best. Sonic noticed the lights that Tails had set up before were glistening with blue and yellow colors like before! As he looked around, the room sparkled with colors that mixed. The music started as Sonic focused his attention back to Blaze.
*MAX - Lights Down Low ft. Gnash*
Sonic managed to keep his bearings as he prepped himself for a dance! His thoughts were still running around in his mind.
”Never thought I’d be slow dancing with my best friend. Maybe this isn’t gonna be as bad as I thought!”
He stepped back as he held his hand out to Blaze.
“Shall I have this dance my lady?”
He said very softly and very slowly. Blaze felt her cheeks get hot once more as she responded in kind! She approached him and took his hand. A heartfelt smile spread across her face.
“Yes. We shall!”
Sonic smiled as he loosened up towards Blaze. Her beauty still affected him, but he was able to easily accommodate to the situation. He reminded himself of how he skated on the ice to perform the necessary steps in complement to Blaze. The Princess did just the same as she placed each foot in memory of skating on the ice.
Both of them were amazed at the precise movements each of them made as they smiled upon each other. Sonic twirled Blaze around as she followed in the appealing profession of the dancing abilities both of them displayed. Each time they came into contact with each other, their hearts melted into the music that played on.
*Michael Buble - I Believe In You*
The music began changing as the tempo of the music sped their beautiful performance! The two managed to get comfortable enough to talk to each other as they danced. The situation turned into a demonstration as Sonic made conversation with the Princess.
“So you are the Lady of The Snow I’ve been hearing about. I had no idea that Tails chose you to be in that dress.”
Sonic dipped Blaze down as he brought her back up. Blaze responded as she followed with Sonic’s technique.
“It’s quite comfortable I should say at the most. Though it’s also ironic that I’m representing the snow, when I in fact represent-!”
“-The fire that you have.”
Sonic finished her sentence as the two laughed lightly.
“Yes. Exactly. I’m curious as to why you were a candidate. Everyone would’ve chosen you by default which would make this competition completely unfair!”
Those words had revealed a sudden truth upon hearing it. It made him furious at his best friend, but it also made him instantly forgive him.
“Tails. He’s trying to play Matchmaker.”
Blaze furrowed her brows.
Blaze didn’t understand the word, but she did recognize the meaning as she began blushing.
“Yeah! It’s where-! Oh…”
Sonic imagined himself slapping his face. The dress, the makeup, and him being a candidate. This party was not only for New Year’s, but it was also to get him to consider being with Blaze.
“I am so sorry Blaze. Tails is-!”
Blaze put a finger on his lips to silence him much to his surprise!
“There is no need for apologies Sonic. I am here with you and that’s not going to affect tonight.”
She pulled her finger from his lips as Sonic held on to her. Continuing their elegant dance routine.
“Heheh. You’re something else Blaze. You know that?”
Blaze giggled at this.
“I could say the same about you Blue Hedgehog.”
Time: 11: 50 p.m.
The music dimmed down as both of the heroes finished their dance with a final dip! Sonic pulled Blaze up for a final time as the crowd cheered for the last time! They separated as both held hands and bowed together.
“Alright! That was a spectacular performance! I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did people, because it’s now nearing time for a New Year to begin! Give a round of applause to Rouge the Bat who designed the dress you see on the Princess at this very moment.”
“Thank you for coming to this party as we begin the countdown towards the New Year! How you spend these last 8 minutes is up to you! Have a good night everyone!”
Tails left the stage with the crowd cheering and returning to the dance floor as he noticed Sonic’s forgiving stare. Tails mouthed the words ‘sorry’ as Sonic threw a thumbs up towards him. Tails headed towards the crowd to enjoy the rest of the party as Sonic turned back to Blaze.
“Hey. More music’s playing in the background. You wanna dance until then?”
Sonic held his hand out once more as Blaze grasped his hand. She threw him a very hidden, but alluring smile.
“I would love to.”
They returned to the dance floor as an upbeat, but low song played on.
*Kevin Garrett - Little Bit Of You*
Both of them got lost in the music as the two began their dance. After their previous performance, the movements became flawless as practice turned into habit. Blaze was evermore growing her feelings towards Sonic as the same was happening to him.
“I cannot believe we’ve become so close in just a few short hours Sonic.”
Sonic smiled softly towards the feline as both of the heroes heartbeats began to match with the music. It slowed time around them as the crowd faded away from view. In that one moment it was only Blaze and Sonic left dancing alone.
“I can’t believe how beautiful you look in that dress.”
Sonic managed to contain himself as he nuanced the meaning behind his words. It shaded little of what feelings he was developing for the Princess. She teased around as she evaded the compliments that made her blush.
“Beautiful is a term used for those who dress up for unnecessary pageants.”
Sonic noticed this and followed along in the game that Blaze was playing on him.
“Oh really? Heheh. Well then! Let me rephrase my words a bit. I can’t believe the rarity I’m holding in my arms right now.”
Blaze couldn’t contain the heat she felt in her cheeks. She was burning red hot as the fire in her heart grew. It gave Sonic an indicator that they’ve moved past that stage in their relationship. What happens next for them to decide.
“Speechless. Well what if I do this?”
Sonic softly, but quickly pulled her close to his chest. The Princess became flustered as her words became even more nonexistent. Blaze tried to keep her upright position.
“Still speechless! You’re really trying hard aren’t you? Well what if I…?”
Sonic got in nearer to her lips as it leaves the small space between them begging to be filled. The softness of their voices grew as time moved forward.
“You’re getting awfully dangerous Sonic.”
The Princess managed to get out. The space between the lips were thinning for every inch they moved closer. A moan escaped from the Princess who had never felt so weak around someone in her entire life! It begged for pure bliss to flow through them in this moment.
“The Cat is finally speaking? Good.”
Blaze held on to Sonic as she came ever closer to tasting the luxuriousness of Sonic’s lips. She kept teasing him by pulling away from his lips, and inching herself forward as to entice the hedgehog.
“Enlighten me Sonic. Who’s going to save me?”
The countdown to the New Year had no effect on the moment they both were going to share.
”A question I’d like to explore with you...”
”*moan!* Prove it my Hero...”
Their lips drew nearer as the ecstasy flowed through them. With a newly defined feeling, Blaze began to speak the truest words that could only be written down in secrecy.
”Hot Chocolate. It can last even if it’s cold.”
