Amy started cooking dinner after they were gone.
She was making sweet mashed potatoes with sweet peas and cooked chicken.
Sonic loved the smell coming from the kitchen and gotten really hungry wondering when it was going to be finished.
Sonic: Amy? Whens diner?
Amy: Very shortly.
Dinner was finished and sat up the plates for them.
She put them in new blows that kept the food separated.
Amy even bought them plastic forks and spoons so they can feed them selves.
Knuckles was the first one for dinner.
She thought itll be nice if he was fed first since his little moment with Shadow.
Amy hoped that the new highchair and plastic silverware would up a smile on his face but he just looked down at his chicken cut-ups, peas, and at his sweet potatoes.
Amy: Would you like me to feed you?
She finally asked.
Knuckles moaned a bit.
She took that as a yes and fed him by hand like she used to.
He only ate half his dinner when she knew he had enough for the night.
Amy: How about some fresh milk? Would you like that?
Knuckles: Maybe before bed. I just want to be alone now.
Amy: Ok sweetie.
She left him back in the playpen and took Sonic to the highchair.
Amy: I think youre going to like feeding yourself today. You didnt do that in quite some time.
Sonic smiled on the outside but felt disappointed a little on the inside when he knew he wasnt going to be fed by Amy today.
But it was so adorable when he was placed in the highchair and tried to feed himself.
Even though his did made a mess of things.
Amy: Would you like some help?
He dapperly wanted her to feed him but told her no it was fine and told her that he got it under control.
Sonic eventually finished with supper and was cleaned up before he was placed back in the playpen with Knuckles.
He was offered a bottle of milk but he decided to wait until bedtime for it.
Now comes the hard part.
She still wasnt in the mood because on what he did earlier with Knuckles but even he doesnt deserve to starve to death.
But she wasnt going to give him the option of feeding himself.
So she sat Shadow in the highchair with his hands on his lap with the tray over them and hand fed him his dinner.
Shadow tried to yell at her to stop it but every time he opened up his mouth she would shove more food in it to shut him up.
He finished about the same time as Sonic did with his dinner and was put back in the crib without a bottle of milk.
The rest of the night was ok.
Amy placed the new toys and diapers in their room and was going to look at furnisher tomorrow morning to replace what Shadow destroyed.
Bedtime quickly came when they were put in new footy pajamas.
Sonic was put in the light blue one with a blue elephant in the corner of his left part of his chest, Knuckles had light pink with orange tiger in the same area where Sonic had his and Shadow had yellow with a cute little ducky the same spot as Sonic and Knuckles.
Sonic was placed in Knuckles bed with a bottle of milk, shadow was still in the same crib only with a half bottle of milk (she wasnt heartless but he was still being punished.) and Knuckles slept in Amys room with a full bottle of milk as well.
She helped him drink half of it until he was asleep.
The next day Amy revised a call from Tails asking for her to bring everyone to the lab.
Amy couldnt ask for a better time.
She needed to go shopping again and she needed to find a sitter for them, she accepted Tails offer and get ready for the morning.
She and the boys waited outside for their ride by Mr. Talkiney and drove them to the mansion.
(The butler. I cant spell his name ok. Sorry.)
Once they got to the lab and opened the door Chuck and Tails laugh so hard seeing them in dresses and seeing them with different fur colors.
Especially Shadows pink fur.
Amy: Oh be quiet! This is the only way for them to go out in public!
Tails: I rather never be in public if I had to dress like that!
He continued laughing with Chuck until Amy quickly pulled out her hammer that quickly shut them up.
Amy: Are we ok now.
They nodded at her.
She puts her hammer away.
Amy: Now why did you call me here today?
Chuck: We want to do some tests to see if theres anything out of the ordinary.
Shadow: WERE BABIES OLD MAN! HOW IS THAT ORDINARY?!
Chuck: No-no! Hes right. Its not ordinary to reverse ageing from an adult to an infant.
Shadow puts a smug on.
Tails: We want to see if their brains would become more todderlish or if their brain is running like it used to before the incident. Nothing like cutting them open or anything.
Chuck: A few X-rays and cat-scans. They would be done at the end of the day.
Amy knew they would keep their word about not doing anything extreme on them so she handed them their yellow diaper bag that was filled with some their toys, empty bottles, (she knew that they had milk to fill them up if they were thirsty) healthy snacks, and plenty of diapers that can last them a whole two weeks.
Amy: Now take care of my three boys while Im gone.
Chuck and Tails: Can do.
She gave plenty of kisses to Sonic and Knuckles on their heads before she left to go shopping again.
Shadow only got a pat on the head from her seeing he was still being punished for yesterday.
Tails: Look like Amys enjoying taking care of you guys.
Sonic: I guess its a womanly thing really.
Chuck: Well whatever it is its going to end in about a month from now, so she shouldnt get to into it.
Sonic: Why do you say it like that?
He asked with his finger on his bottom lip.
Chuck: Once youre all grown up its going to be harder for Amy to let you all go if shes to close.
Sonic thought for a moment about what Chuck said.
It was a little true, once the month is over theyll all go back to their old lives.
No more nap time, no more daycare, no more bibs or highchairs and definitely no more diapers.
But worst of all no more being held by Amy.
Sonic felt a little heart broken from hearing the truth and had to face reality of growing up.
Shadow: The sooner the better. I cant wait to get out of these stupid diapers!
Chuck: Now-now Shadow. You got to be patient once its all ready youll be a free hedgehog.
Shadow: Free wasnt a word I knew back on my days on the ARK.
Chuck: Well at least those days are over for you Shadow.
Shadow: Those days are never over for me.
He whispered to himself as Tails strolled them over to a metal table.
Sonic was the first one up since he was the first one who got shoot by the ray gun.
Tails: Ok Sonic dont move while we look at you, ok?
They took some basic DNA from him like hair and spit before they took some X-rays in another room.
Tails was told to look after Knuckles and Shadow while Chuck was doing some more tests on Sonic.
whats it like being babies?
Trying to break the ice.
Shadow: It worst than my days on the ARK. I rather do ten thousand laps while being shot at than be here!
(Note: He had to do thousands laps before his real training everyday on the ARK.)
Tails: Ok! Ok! It was just a question!
Meanwhile in the other room Chuck was looking inside Sonics mouth to see how well he was teething and if anything was out of the ordinary for a toddler.
Chuck: Well Im no doctor but you seem perfectly healthy. Amy is taking good care of you.
It made them both smile knowing Amy was doing a good job.
Chuck: Now just a few more X-rays and tests and well be all done.
It only took a few minutes for him to finish up everything before Sonic was sent back to Tails with a red lollipop for being a good boy.
Knuckles was the second one for testing before Shadow.
He did whatever Chuck told him to do without complaining on how long it took or how he did it.
Chuck: Thats a good boy Knuckles.
He was also was sent back into the room with some candy just like Sonic only it was a purple lollipop instead of red.
Tails: Youre up Shadow.
I thought the magical tooth fairy was next in line
thats not nice. Were trying to help you get better. Can you at least say please?
Shadow: And if I dont?
Chuck: Than you can forget about the ageing machine and grow up like any normal child. It may do you some good to help you with that attitude you got.
He thought for a quick moment and thought to himself he rather say please and get it over with than send an extra two or three years in diapers, even if he die inside saying it.
He tries not to swallow his tongue.
He nearly died from asking someone to do something for him.
Chuck: You act like saying please was going to kill you.
Tails: Well at least he said it.
lets just get the tests done and over with.
It only took half the time compared to Sonic or Knuckles since he was already knew what to do from all the testing he did over on the ARK.
Sit up, dont ask questions, let the doctors do their jobs, and dont move unless youre told to.
Chuck: Ok Shadow, you did a good job and for being a good boy you get to chose a lollipop.
He held up a rainbow of suckers in his hand.
Shadow: Humph! I dont need cand-
He stares at the blue lollipop and slowly grab it in his tiny hand.
Chuck: Looks like a small part of you likes lollipops Shadow.
Shadow: SUGAR ON A STICK?! WHOS BRIGHT IDEA WAS THA-
Chuck quickly shoved the sucker in Shadows mouth before he could finish speaking.
Chuck: If you complain less and enjoy life more itll be a lot better for you.
Shadow just made a pouty face as Chuck still held the candy in his mouth.
Meanwhile in the other room.
Tails: Wow I cant Eggman turn you into a baby!
He said as he held Sonic up to his eye level.
Sonic: I gotta poo.
A moment of an awkward moment became between them.
Sonic: You knew this was coming adventurously. Knuckles to depress to do anything and Amys gone to go shopping. Youre the only one left. Theres nobody else.
Chuck was holding Shadow in his arms peacefully a few minutes later until he saw Tails hugging his legs and rocking himself in the corner and as pail as a ghost.
Chuck: What happen Tails?!
Tails: It was everywhere.
(THATS FOR YOU NIGHTOFTHELIVINGCATS! THANK YOU FOR BSC!)
Chuck: What are you thanking about?
Tails just nervously pointed to Sonic who was laying on the metal table tearing up.
Chuck: Sonic? What did you do?
Sonic: It didnt do a-anything!
He screamed as he began to cry on the cold metal table.
Sonic: I-I j-just n-need-d a ch-change!
Chuck: Thats all? Theres no need to cry over that.
He put Shadow back in the stroller and lifted Sonic to stop his crying while bounce him a little like he did with his son when his wife wasnt home.
Sonic stop crying after two minutes as he cuddled into Chucks lab coat.
Chuck: There, there. See? Everythings ok. No more crying over something small. Promise?
Sonic wipes the rest of his tears away and nodded that hell be good for the rest of the day.
Chuck: Thats a good boy.
He placed Sonic back in the stroller and told Tails he doesnt have to change any more diapers if he doesnt want to.
Tails: Thank you.
Chuck: Not a problem.
Sonic, Knuckles and Shadow were placed in a large playpen with a few toys and the TV remote.
Chuck told them they could watch anything they wanted to and not tell Amt if they behaved until she got back.
All three of them quickly agreed on it since this might be the only time they could watch real TV instead of those baby shows that Amy puts on for them.
The second Chuck and Tails left Shadow quickly grabbed the remote before Sonic and turned on Cops.
Sonic: Hey! I was going to watch something!
Shadow: Its first comes first served! Now quit acting like a baby and shut up! Im trying to watch TV!
Sounding mad as he crawled away to play with the toys on the other side of the playpen where Knuckles was hugging his knees and sitting down and doing nothing.
Sonic: Hey there buddy. How you doing?
you wanna play?
He felt a little childish by asking if he would like to play but he was doing it for Knuckles.
Sonic: You wanna
He quickly looks up and looks at Sonic.
Sonic: Ah. Just talk.
He smiles a bit and held his knees a bit closer.
Sonic: Ok. But
He points at Shadow.
Sonic: Oh I see. Shadows still here and you want to be alone with someone else, right?
Knuckles nods at him knowing he hit the nail on the head on what he was trying to get at.
Sonic: Ok. Well just wait until Amy gets back.
He turns around to play with the toys when suddenly he received a big hug from Knuckles from the behind.
He quickly lets go.
Knuckles: If you tell anyone about the hug, you can conceder yourself a dead hedgehog.
Sonic: Ok Knuckles I wont tell.
He said with a smile knowing Knuckles was acting like his old self again.
Time passed when Shadows show finally ended.
Sonic: My turn! My turn! My turn!
Shadow: Here! If it would get you to shut up!
He shoved the remote at Sonic and crawled away.
He flips through the channels and found the sports channel where college athletes were getting ready for a race.
He wished he could run again so he took in a deep breath and closed his eyes.
He pictured he was one of the athletes and getting ready to run, he did a few stretches before he heard the official blasted his gun up in the air.
Sonic imagines himself running his heart out again and winning the race by a huge landslide.
The crowd cheered as he waved to them and blowing a few kisses out to the ladies.
Dream Sonic: Thank you my loyal fans! I love you all!
Dream Judge: Mr. Sonic please come here to receive your prize.
Dream Sonic: Just call me Sonic.
He said as he shook the mans hand.
Dream Judge: This reward goes to the cutest littlest baby of them all.
Dream Sonic: You bet it goes to the cutest lit-what say what?
Dream Judge: Aww
is the baby cranny because he didnt get his nap yat?
Dream Sonic: Say what
He said as he backed away looking a little nervous.
Dream Judge: Aww
Dream Sonic: What are you talking about? Im not w
He looks down and saw he was in a thick white diaper that was soaked completely.
Dream Sonic: NO WAIT! ITS NOT WHAT YOU THINK! ITS-ITS-
Dream Judge: Its ok baby. Lets clean you up.
He grabbed his hand and dragged him to the 1st place stance.
Dream Sonic: NO! YOURE MAKING A BIG MISTAKE!
Dream Judge: Dont worry Sonic everything is going to be fine.
The crowd turned into laughing mouths and pointing fingers just like in his other dream as the man continued dragging him to the 1st place stance that turned into a pink changing table with a girly halo toy above it.
Dream Sonic: LET ME GOO-GOO-GAA-GAA!
He coved his mouth thinking to himself did he actually just baby talked?
Dream Judge: Now just relaxed while youre being clean up.
The man laid him down on the table and started to undo to yellow tapes as the people laughed harder and more fingers pointed at him.
Dream Sonic: YA-BEE-GAA!!!
Dream Judge: Dont worry Sonic everything is going to be fine. Now wake up
The voice was slowly turning into someone he knew.
He closed his eyes as a pair of small hands grabbed his body screaming while shouting his name over and over again and again.
Sonic finally woke up with tears in his eyes facing Knuckles who was trying to wake him up.
He looks down and saw he was still dry this time until like his other nightmare.
? Are you ok? You fell asleep and were crying and screaming.
Shadow: And you wouldnt shut up!
His eyes filled up with tears as he grabbed Knuckles and hugged him not caring what Shadow thank about it.
Sonic cried his eyes out fearing that people will laugh at him if they found out his secret.
Knuckles: Sonic? Did you have a nightmare or something?
He nodded as he continued crying into Knuckles dress.
Knuckles: Its ok Sonic. Amy will be back soon, you can tell her everything when she gets back.
He blew his nose into Knuckles dress and wiped off his last tears.
Knuckles: Gee thanks!
Looking at the snot on his dress.
Shadow: It was an ugly dress anyways. No need to feel bad about your outfit Knuckles.
He looked down depressed once again as Shadow crawled away laughing.
Sonic: You dont have to take that Knuckles.
Sonic: Im sorry
He simply said.
A half an hour passed by when Sonic finished up his show and gave the remote to Knuckles.
Sonic: Here Knuckles. You can watch whatever you want.
Knuckles choose the baby channel; he didnt really care if anyone in the house know about what he was watching.
He just wanted peace.
Luckily it showed the same episode Knuckles was watching before Shadow broke the TV in Amys apartment.
a new hobby of yours?
Knuckles: I guess
Sonic: Thats cool. It is age appropriate after all.
He said as he rubbed the back of his head trying to break the ice.
I didnt mean by age appropriate calling you a baby or anything I mean you know the whole Eggman thing and laser and umm
Ill just let you what your show. Ok?
Sonic crawled away to play with some of the toys that were placed in the playpen earlier.
Meanwhile when Sonic and Knuckles were talking Shadow put his back against a teddy bear with his right arm behind his head and his left hand holding the blue lollipop.
Shadow stared at it wondering why he suddenly grabbed it so quickly without a second thought.
He looked at it closer remembering something but couldnt make a picture of it.
All he could see was a very small person putting a blue lollipop in his mouth and thats it.
Shadow: Stupid piece of sugar.
He bites down on it as hard as he could with the remaining teeth that he had but it wasnt enough to even crack it let alone scrape it.
Shadow: I hate you
He threw it across the playpen and cuddled into the teddy bear to get some sleep.
It was noon when Chuck received a phone call from Amy telling them dont forget to feed them their lunch and bottle of milk.
Chuck told Amy they wouldnt and said goodbye before hanging up.
Chuck: Tails! You can take a brake now. Im going to feed kids.
Tails: Na Im good. Ill just keep on working.
Chuck: Dont over do it now, you need rest too you know.
Tails: Ill take a brake in another hour or so.
Chuck: You remind me of me when I was your age.
Tails smiled and went back to screwing a few more bolts on a small machine.
He setup an old metal highchair in the kitchen and made a plate of mashed up goopy foods for them.
Sonic was first to be fed by Chuck.
Nothing different really, a bib, smiley baby food fallowed by here comes the airplane game before they were sent back into the room with a bottle of milk.
Knuckles ate most of his meal but Shadow had the most difficult time stomaching the food.
But eventually Chuck got him eating and sent back into the room with a bottle of milk just the same.
Chuck: Now all of you guys play nice when Tails and I work. Ok?
Sonic: Sounds good.
Shadow: Just work faster so I can get back to doing stuff!
Chuck: Like what youre doing now?
Shadow: What are you taking about?!
He snapped at him.
Chuck pointed down with a smile on his face.
Shadow looked down and saw a yellow spot growing around his legs.
Shadow: I doing this on purpose!
He shouted to Chuck so he could wipe that stupid grin off his face.
