Red eyes snapped open to see bright green eyes staring down at him in curiosity. He sat up, and Amber jumped away so as to not be knocked back by his sudden movement.
He rubbed his eyes and ripped the covers off of him, grumbling softly to Amber that she should get lost. She did so silently, and he took that moment of privacy to roll up his sleeve and inspect his scar; it was still transparent around the wound, but thankfully, it hadn’t spread.
He slowly walked down the long, spiral stairs and into the front entrance.
His bare feet slapped against the cold tile, and he looked outside for a second and found that his mother’s car was still parked in the driveway. She hadn’t left yet, but she would probably leave soon.
She was a well-known business woman, and she traveled often to different countries. She would leave for days on end, sometimes calling when she had the chance, and of course, picking up little souvenirs from wherever she visited.
It was because of his father’s paintings and his mother Lilith’s income that they had been “blessed” with good fortune; he, his mother and Amber lived in a large house at the top of a hill, isolated from busy streets and obnoxious buildings. Although it was a nice house, with marble floors and a nice garden, he inwardly found it lonely, and when his mother left for work and the caretaker came, everything seemed too dark and depressing.
It wasn't that he disliked the dark; he actually rather enjoyed it very much, but he liked the natural darkness. The house was much different. In the mornings, when the sun hadn’t quite risen, everything in the house had a gray tone, making it seem unnaturally gloomy.

I'm sure some of you will enjoy the sequel; we'll be looking more into Zeth's past, Amber will grow a little more, and we may see a new character or two... and the return of one.
Lemme know whatchya think!
Hi there! I'm Emi, also known as SonicGirlDreamer! I'm a HUGE fan of Sonic the Hedgehog as well as Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy! |
I currently have 22 Sonic the Hedgehog games! I also have a whole bunch of GOTG comics. :3
A lot of people like a lot of things, but on rare occasions can a person truly love a make-believe character. Everybody needs a little comfort from a totally different source sometimes, and for me, it's in a special blue hedgehog or a brave, anti-heroic team.
Sonic, who has been my childhood hero for over 11 years, and the Guardians, who have made their way into my heart, have taught me so many things. I've learned that you don't have to save the galaxy or take down giant robots to be amazing. You just have to live life and be true to yourself.
I love you.
