he had to try very hard to keep it together in front of his team. His heart was
slowly shattering and Daniel knew that there was little that he could say to
make the German driver stay at Red Bull.
eyes shot open as he – again – heard a loud noise from outside his door. The
German sighed loudly and rubbed his eyes. He had to get up early tomorrow and
wandering around in the middle of the night was the last thing he needed.
after the German heard the noise again he stood up, stretched himself once,
before he shuffled over to the door to open it.
hell do you think you…”, but as soon as Sebastian saw that his teammate was
standing outside his hotel room – dressed only in an old t-shirt and some boxer
shorts – he closed his mouth and stared at the Australian.

I did not want to keep you awake”, Daniel started but Sebastian was having none
matter Daniel? You would not be running around in front of my door and clearly
talking to yourself if there was not any sort of problem”, Sebastian started
and Daniel seemed to get more nervous by every second.
the reason is that… that”, Daniel took a deep breath and then he looked at
the German driver, “the reason is that I need to talk to you”
“At 3 a.m.
in the fucking morning?”, Sebastian shot back and Daniel swallowed harshly
before he nodded yes..
sake Dan”, the German groaned but he stepped aside to make room for the
Australian to slip into his hotel room.
make this quick. I am tired”, Sebastian said as he closed the door behind them
and went back to sit on the edge of his bed.
standing in the middle of the room and he was still rubbing at his neck with a
nervous and slightly scared expression on his face.
know…” Daniel started, “one of the mechanics told me that you will race for
Ferrari next year”
and Daniel ran his fingers through his hair.
just wanted to know if that is already official or if you just want to race for them?”
signed the contract a few weeks ago. It is official. I will be at Ferrari next
year”, Sebastian explained and Daniel still looked nervous as hell.
here comes the part I wanted to talk about with you”, the Australian mumbled
and Sebastian looked at him with a quizzically expression.
would love you to stay at Red Bull”, Daniel tried and Sebastian eyes him for a
few seconds before he started to laugh.
kidding me, right?”, the German joked and Daniel tried to laugh along; tried to
play it off as cool as he could; but his face just would not let him and so
Sebastian soon realized that Daniel was serious about his request.
know that I always wanted to race for Ferrari right? This is what I always
wanted to do”, Sebastian tried to explain why he had signed the contract.
totally get that, but…. “, Daniel stopped mid-sentence before he took a deep
breath; closed his eyes and said: “but I will miss you”
There was an
uncomfortable silence for a few heartbeats before Sebastian got up from the bed
and walked over to where Daniel was standing; eyes still closed and hands
balled into fists.
Sebastian started and tried to calm the Australian down by stroking softly over
his arms, “this does not mean that we will never see us again, you know?”, the
German added and Daniel tried everything to play it cool; he did not want
Sebastian to worry about him,
I know. Sorry Seb, this was stupid I guess”, Daniel tried to laugh it off but
as he turned around to leave Sebastian held onto his hand and spun the
Australian back around.
fast, Ricciardo”, Sebastian said and he gazed into Daniel’s eyes as if he knew
everything that Daniel wanted to tell him so desperately.
something else you wanna tell me?”, Sebastian started again and Daniel shook
his head no while he bit on the inner side of his cheeks to keep everything
Dan! Now or never!”, Sebastian tried again and this time Daniel just shook his
head and ripped out of Sebastian’s gentle hold.

Dan, we are teammates; we are friends!”, Sebastian begged but Daniel shook his
teammates always tell each other everything!”, Seb tries again but Daniel kept
ridiculous! Just open your damn mouth and tell me what the hell is going on!”,
Sebastian demanded then and Daniel groaned before he turned again and walked
over to the hotel room door.
“No Seb, it’s
okay. I did not want to say…”
Sebastian interrupted him with a loud “Bullshit” and this was enough for the
Australian to spin back around and shout “I like you, okay?!”
was very quiet and Sebastian stood there; his mouth wide and his eyes staring
at Daniel in disbelieve.
the German added after a few moments and Daniel shook his head and replied: “Well
yes. As I said: I like you, Seb. I always have and I would love for you to stay”

at each other.

really is”, the Australian added and it nearly broke his heart that Sebastian did
not even try to run after him as he made his way out of Sebastian’s hotel room.
driver had signed the contract and Daniel knew that it was too late.
I tend to like every Sonic character and struggled to find a fave for a long time, switching from Amy to Tails to Sonic himself gradually over time
Ever since I got into the western canon(s) I got to appreciate characters I didn’t even take into consideration before. Sally Acorn for example, which really became an inspiration to me!
I gradually warmed to other characters from the ol’ cartoons and the comics. I really really like the trio Sally-Nicole-Bunnie. Dream team! Hehe, got the pun.
Oh, Sonia from Sonic Underground used to be a big childhood fave. Still holds a special place in my heart!
And then we have Bernie Hedgehog, which is The Fave, answering your question more directly. I’ve never felt so strongly about a character before! I give a bit of me into Bernie and a bit of Bernie into me, everyday.
The comic is overall full of characters I find relatable or which I really like in their unique way! Expecially yeah, Sonic’s family hehe.
That’s pretty much it! What are your favourite characters? :)
