‘Why, isn’t that a long time no see.’
‘Shade!’ Knuckles said surprised. ‘Wow, it’s been so long!’
‘2 years. Two wonderful months we’ve spent together.’ Shade smiled. They were both in the park when they passed each other by. Knuckles first noticed how much Shade had grown; her proportions were much more feminine and her breasts had grown from perky to mature.
‘Yeah, how could I forget… what are you doing here? Don’t you live somewhere else?’
‘I’m on vacation.’
‘Yep. I’m still single since you left me for the batgirl.’
‘Oh yeah.’ Knuckles mumbled embarassed. Shade hadn’t taken his sporadic departure very well at the time. ‘I still have a scar from that fight.’ He grinned.
‘I’m sorry. I was a little out of control then. I loved you very much.’ Shade whispered and an uncomfortable silence followed.
‘But I can make it up to you.’
‘How about I take you to dinner tonight?’
‘I’d love to, but… I already have plans with Rouge.’
‘Doesn’t matter, she can join.’
‘Well, she’d love that.’ Knuckles winked.
‘See you at 8 ‘o clock tonight at that fancy restaurant in town?’
‘Got it. See you there!’
‘Bye, Knuckles.’ Shade smiled. She had big plans for tonight.
