But you like them more than I do! Plus, I’ve got a bed here thanks to you, that’s enough for me!
-He wriggled his tail happily, practically bouncing on his toes. Shadow was doing more than enough in his eyes, Shadow was great in his eyes!-
… Fine. But you ought to tell me something you would like for me to do to you.
-And he just walks right up to the black hedgehog and smooches his cheek.-
Then let’s cuddle. I’ll give you an ear scratch, heh.
-Shadow swivels an ear back.-
I should be the one giving you that.
-To be honest, Shadow has been feeling as though he’s been sitting around doing nothing too much.-
… So you don’t want to lay down with me and cuddle?
… I never said that.
A’ight this is beginnin’ t’ hurt my head.
You are only hurting your own head. It’s not that complicated.
That’s why I came here, Shadow. I wanna rest!
From the looks of things, I think you should too. And… Um… I’m kinda always gonna worry about you. Sorry.
… I don’t need rest. I am the ultimate life form.
You’re the last hog I’d expect t’ sugar coat somethin’, Shads. I want the truth.
Is it really the truth that you’re seeking from me?
I told you it already, but you did not listen.
… You don’t seem fine.
I’m sure it’s going to end soon… Only two more so it won’t be long, and I’m half way there to getting one of those so…
… Well, and there’s my actual fight and if I survive and…
It’ll be over soon. Why? You’re not missing me, are you?
It is nothing you need to worry about, Silver. Not on top of everything else that is currently bothering you.
… I want you to be able to rest. Concern is what I feel.
That’s the place, yeah!
It was an adventure, we’re gonna go and find the next Time Stone with the help of the emerald we got there really soon too and…
… Are you okay, Shadow?
… Yes. I am fine.
I am simply curious to know when your journey will be at its end.
That’s what you want me to say, isn’t it?
If I said ‘nothing’, you would object.
Trust me, buddy. I get enough coddlin’.
… Just, where am I goin’ wrong? I tried t’ make it all right ‘n’ it back fired. I tried t’ play as safe as I could.
Everything you did was a misstep.
