the best brothers in the world

3

“Why’d you just hang up on your brother?” Liam asked, quirking a thick eyebrow at me. They needed to be shaped again. Usually I tweezed them when I could get close enough with a pair of tweezers and he wouldn’t run the other way.

Rolling my eyes at him, I frowned. “Because I’m mad at him.”

“Why?” Again with the eyebrow arch.

“You should know. Aren’t you two just the best of mates, gossiping about me and what not?” I retorted, crossing my arms. I tightened my grip on my phone.

Liam sighed, his shoulders slumping like he had the weight of the world on them. “Serena…”

I held up a finger, making him stop before we got into it again. In front of his band mates, management and my co-workers was the last place I wanted to argue with him. My heart was racing in my chest, about to beat into overdrive. “No, you don’t get to make excuses.”

Chapter 17 of Coming Up Roses, ‘good grief,’ coming soon

anonymous asked:

We need some more interaction between all the main guy hedgies! The SSS Squad as I like to call them ;) I find their relationship almost like they're brothers. A prompt could be Sonic wanting to show Silver the beauty of his world and etc... not sure what else ^^; <3

I totally agree, sweet Anon! What is this world coming too if we don’t have any SSS bonding!? or even, some fighting/rivalry xD

Do you want Silver, Sonic, and Shadow involved in this said story? I love how the three interact, and shall do my best!

Prompt:

With the battle won, the three defused their super forms, and watched as the creature that was born from Silver’s future of Shadow’s lost DNA fell to the depths of the sea and finally… exploded.

The impact left the three guarding themselves, as water sprayed up, and a huge wave came crashing near the cliff they were at.

In a moment of staring at what was probably the hardest battle they had to face, the three slowly turned around, staring out of a moment of suspicion if it was really over, before walking back away.

“Whoo!” Sonic lifted his arms up, letting out a sigh with his stretch, and put his hands behind his back. “Ah~ Now that’s what I call falling with style!”

“…There’s no point in over-glorifying it, Sonic. That beast fell as an abomination to this world.” Shadow, loathing the very idea of mankind trying to replicate his DNA for another ultimate weapon peeved him to his core.

Silver lowered his head, closing his eyes in his stride. “The people of my world were foolish to believe they could harness the power that you left behind… I apologize on their behalf.” he suddenly stopped, his foot falling hard, and him looking away from the two onward hedgehogs, ashamed.

He squinted his eyes, as Sonic turned around, lowering his hands, and blinking in surprise.

Shadow also turned, a slightly off neutral glare to him, but maybe that was just his resting face?

Sonic smiled to Shadow, and then walked back to Silver, “Don’t worry about it, buddy!” he patted Silver’s back, and then looped his arm around to his shoulders, and pulling the kid in, “Shadow’s just a natural grump when it comes to his ultimate weakness of having to deal with life being sucking sometimes.” he threw a thumb back to gesture to Shadow, who twitched at his remarks, and seemed to try and console his new found friend.

Silver looked a little odd at the gesture Sonic gave, before Sonic released the hold, only doing it for comedy’s sake, and then laughing again.

Silver gave a soft look to the two, but still seemed responsible. “I may not have been able to stop them… but I do feel the need to state something…” he rolled his eyes to the ground, before coming up on Shadow, and stepping towards him, lifting a hand up. “I swear, Shadow… I shall never let your blood be used in selfish experiments again! You shall rest in peace…”

Shadow, having recently heard he was destroyed by mankind for being a ‘threat too uncontrollable’ still thought it ‘funny’ to say the least that they would try and take of his blood to make an even more massively and increasingly threatening beast later on.

He looked at Silver’s hand, rage calmly expressed through thought more than body language.

“…Hmph.” he turned around, ignoring the gesture, as Silver flinched his hand back, and Sonic made a face, looking away, as if disappointed in Shadow’s actions.

“Keep your oaths. They’ll do you.. and me no good.” he folded his arms, as Sonic came in between the two.

“Aw, look at us! A mighty find mix of past goals-” he gestured to Shadow, “Present dreams-” he gestured fondly to himself with both hands, before then moving to Silver, “And future hopes. I say, let bygones be bygones!”

Shadow groaned at his words, and walked on, shaking his head. “I don’t have time for your continued puns. I have no need of the three of you anymore.”

“And I have no need of that grumpy face! Bleh!” Sonic made a face, making his frown deeper, before looking to Silver and chuckling, “Hey, need a place?” he gestured with his thumb again, leaning forward and raising the tip of his toe as he did so.

Silver smiled, but shook his head. “Thank you. You’re kind, but I must return to my future… even if he will not accept my promise…” Silver looked at his rejected hand, “and though he may be right… that I’m not able to fulfill it on my own…” he slowly clenched it, shaking it in it’s tension he created for it.

“I will not fail him… or myself… or this past.” he looked up to Sonic, as Sonic nodded at his resolve, seeing he meant it.

“Do that then.” he smirked and walked over to him, happily patting his back again. “I’ll leave it to you!” he then saluted and took off.

“Thank you… for showing me the beauty of all creations..” he suddenly looked behind him, towards the water. “Even those unmeant to exist…” He thought of Shadow.

In a spirit of gratitude, he felt a calming peace come over him, a resolve he wouldn’t soon forget.

Silver took a powerful stance, “Thank you… hero of worlds. And for you… the shadow of past dawns… I won’t forget… all that you have taught me.” he nodded his head, and then took off towards the sky, having a few lines of light spiral and move diagonal and all around him before he disappeared in a burst of green light to his world.

(I really love how they act around each other xD What do you think? I want a game where you can play all three! And they’re all forced to work together as a team and then turn super at the end together! :DDDD anyway, wishful thinking XD)

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
