Suprise party for Silver;
something new im working on
“He’s almost here!”
A black and red hedgehog said as he ran quickly to a picnic table surrounded by guests. They all looked at him as he was trying to catch his breath.
“Silver must be hard to give the run around to, eh Shadow?” the gray koala said as he was trying to cover the cake.
“This IS Silver, we are talking about. Damn, he’s got a lot of boundless energy within him. But luckily, I set up a big fancy robot for him to fight. But knowing him, he’ll come at any time! Is everything ready, Gardon?!” Shadow yelled.
“All except for one thing… we are missing a guest,” Gardon said as he handed Shadow a piece of paper with the names of all the guests who were supposed to be there.
Shadow took the list and studied it, making sure that the guests were accounted for, Every time he’d look at a name, he’d look at all the guests. As he went down the list, he saw that one person wasn’t checked off. The list read:
After looking at it, Shadow smirked and looked at the rest of the crowd. “Well that’s everyone we needed!”
The purple cat sitting on the bench looked over at Shadow as he was coming toward the picnic table. She lowered her eye at him as he came about smiling; while at the same time was drawing a picture of Silver.
“Hey, Shadow, you know not everyone is here,” she said while coloring her picture.
Alongside her sat an orange and brown raccoon blowing up balloons to tie on to the table. Even though, there were already six balloons surrounding the table, she felt the need to blow up more while at the same time, trying to sneak some food from the snack bowl.
“Wuddabout that Sonic bloke?” she asked.
“Look guys, I got it under control alright?” Shadow said as he was getting annoyed.
“But you promised he’d be here,” the raccoon said.
“Yeah! Marine’s right, your just being a party pooper!” the purple cat chimed in while putting her hand on her hips.
“Shut up, Blaze,” Shadow said as he walked away.
However as he was trying to walk away from the picnic table, he was engulfed in flames, only for Gardon to take his cup of lemonade and poor it on him to seize the flames. After the flames were out, Shadow turned and glared at Blaze, who scoffed at the table.
“No one tells ME to shut up!” she yelled as she went back to drawing. “For that, I’ll tell Silver on you,” she said quietly.
Ignoring Blaze, Shadow went to sit down on the soft green grass and looked up at the sky. While looking at the clouds, he felt that somewhere among the clouds, he could see some that looked like Silver. Silver… there was something about that hedgehog that Shadow often liked. He wasn’t sure if it was his voice, his personality or his smile, but there was something about him that appealed to Shadow more than meets the eye.
“Hey! Shadow, look who’s here?” Gardon’s voice said from behind.
Shadow got up from the floor to brush himself off. Then in excitement, he turned around hoping that it was Silver that was here. However, when he finally saw the guest, he was disappointed to find out that it wasn’t Silver, but a blue hedgehog. A similar blue hedgehog.
“You’re late…” Shadow scoffed.

“Now, now, party starts at 5:00 right? Sonic came at 4:59, he’s not late.” Gardon said.
“Yeah and besides, I wouldn’t miss out on my favorite hedgehog, wouldn’t I, Shads?” Sonic said with a smirk.
“Umm… wouldn’t that be YOU and don’t call me Shads!” Shadow said in an annoyed tone.
“All right, my second favorite hedgehog. Where is Silvs anyway?” the blue hedgehog asked.
“Whatever…” Shadow scoffed. “He’ll be here soon.”
Shadow was upset that Sonic even showed up. He didn’t really want him there. However he invited him because he was one of Silver’s favorite heroes, next to Joe Masushi. Not only was Sonic annoying to Shadow, but the purpose of him throwing a party for Silver was that he can appreciate him for his work in protecting Crisis City. It was also for their friendship to be closer but now with another hedgehog in the mix, Shadow might not accomplish that.
Since he threw this party for Silver, Shadow managed to gather his emotions and roll with everything that was going on. He moved closer to the crowd, who were all conversing at the picnic table, while in his mind, wondering where Silver is and how long is it going to take for him to show up. As Shadow was walking toward the table, he can hear someone running up to him from behind.
“Hey, Shads! You just missed the BBBE!” a familiar voice said from behind.
Shadow quickly turned around with a smile on his face, to see a young silver hedgehog standing before him. Boy was he glad to see him, as his smile quickly expanded on his face and his cheeks got a little red as he stared into his yellow eyes. The younger hedgehog lowered one eyelid at Shadow as he kept staring at him.
“Hey, Shads are you… aright?” he asked.
“Y-yeah, I’m alright, Silver,” Shadow said as he shook his head. Shadow then moved out of Silver’s view and directed him to the crowd of friends by the picnic table.
Silver was shocked to see that the party he walked into was thrown for him. As he looked around as his friends cheering and the drawings Blaze was holding up of him, a smile stretched across Silver’s face. He couldn’t believe that his friends wanted to throw him a party. Feelings of happiness and shock came to Silver as he was absorbing everything in.
“Wow… you shouldn’t have guys!” Silver exclaimed.
“Well it was Shadow’s idea,” Gardon said.
Blaze got up from the picnic table and ran to Silver to try to kiss him. However as she got closer to him with her lips puckered up, Silver put up his hand at her face, thus, making her run into his hand. He then turned to Shadow as he was trying to contain Blaze.
“Thanks, Shads, ole buddy!” Silver exclaimed.
“Welcome, Silver,” Shadow replied as a light blush spread across his face.
Silver turned to Blaze and took his hand off her face. “We went over this a million times. I only like you as a friend and strictly a friend. Okay?”
“Okay…” Blaze sadly sighed as Silver went over to give her a quick hug.
Before Silver could walk away to talk to Shadow, he felt the pressure of someone poking his back from behind. He turned around to see who could be poking him and to his shock, it was… that blue hedgehog!
“Silvs! Long time, no see!” Sonic exclaimed.
“Long time no see!” Silver replied back. “Nice of you to come to my party.”
“You kiddin’? I came to see my favorite hedgehog, besides me of course,” the blue hedgehog smirked. “By the way, I got you this,” he said as he gave Silver a rectangular box.
Silver took off the red ribbon off the box first, and then he took the lid off. When finally opened he took out a still freshly warm chili dog.
“Hey thanks! I don’t know what to say,” Silver said as he took a bite of the ‘dog.
