The happy morning!
Midnight, the beautiful black cat, knows The Hacker and White Hawk are going to the kitten shelter. She grabs her empty food bowl in her mouth, and waits for The Hacker and White Hawk. As soon as they see her with the bowl in her mouth, they know she wants to tag along. She gently puts down her bowl and looks at them in the eye, pleading. The couple pets Midnight. She purrs. "Prrrrmraaaaaww!" Midnight nudges her nose into White Hawk's face. "My sweet, you can come along with us. Yes, you can! Maybe, you can tell the kittens just how much you're loved, here, eh?" The Hacker picks up his furry companion in his arms.
The way that Sonic and Amy get out of their bedroom gives off the wrong signal of what happened overnight. "Heheheheheheheheheheheheheheh! SO! I knew it would happen! How was it, lovebirds? Bah-hahahahahah!" The Hacker somewhat irritated the married hedgehog couple. However, they see why he is reacting the way he is - they have one arm around the other's waist, and are both stroking each other's backs. "No-no-nothin' happened! I-I-I-I swear!" Sonic and Amy blush rather wildly, as they see that The Hacker is still smirking at them. "It's nothing to be ashamed of.... White Hawk and I have done it. BAH! Who am I kidding? I know you're being truthful.... your energy levels would have been higher if you'd be lying. Good thing these devices never lie, eeeehhhh?" The Hacker brings out his beloved vehicle - a shiny Chevrolet Caprice.
Sonic and Amy are amazed at the size of the vehicle. "It makes me feel safe, to drive. And, believe me.... if I don't have anything my way, my driving gets bad. Now, remember, Moe and BIOS need their their feedings throughout the day. The supplies are all in the fridge, on the shelf that says "For Moe and BIOS". Don't let anyone else have it! It's strictly for them! Got it? And, other than that, enjoy your day! See you, tomorrow! We always spend the night at the shelter. Well, Midnight's wanting us to go, now. They don't call me 'The Red Baron of the road', for nothing! This is a rare paint job for such a vehicle! Dark red. And, on the back, it even has a German cross - it's out of respect for my ancestor - the real Red Baron - that's right - I'm part German. Later, now!" The Hacker and White Hawk take off to their beloved kitten shelter, with Midnight sitting in the passenger side of the vehicle.
Sonic and Amy wave goodbye to their friends. They wait for a few hours. Then, they give Moe and BIOS their feedings, after having scolded Tails and Knuckles for nearly taking any of the supply. "Tails, could ya be a pal? Can you give these two their next feedings? Amy and I are goin' out! To somewhere special! I've heard of 'Big Daddy's Cantina'. I've had a free sample of their chili dogs - out of this world!" Tails jumps when he hears the restaurant's name, as he knows it's rather far away. "Sonic, I know you want this, but, it's very far!" He tells Sonic. "Pah! Don't sweat it, bud! I'm fast, remember?" Sonic boasts. Tails rolls his eyes. "Yeah, and, you're also getting fatter!" He quips. "Humph! That's no better than what Hacker greeted us with!" Sonic crosses his arms while talking to Tails. He then sees Amy. Sonic whistles as he sees his wife approaching him. "You're lookin' good, Amy! I just hope they have something to protect your wonderful dress! It must have cost Hacker a fortune!" Sonic grabs Amy's hand.
She knows what it means. "Where are we going, Sonic?" Amy asks, while watching Tails putting away the empty baby bottles in the kitchen sink. It was so hard to reach, he had to fly, to simply get to the counter. Sonic shows Amy a pamphlet for "Big Daddy's Cantina". Amy looks at the price of the chili dogs. "$25,000 per platter? And, they serve 12 per platter!" Amy was astounded by the price. However, she shares her husband's excitement. "Well, what are we waiting for? Let's go! I know the way!" Amy exclaims.
The way to the restaurant!
Sonic and Amy look at the driveway of their home. They note that The Hacker left with his Caprice, heading East. Amy checks the pamphlet. It has a map that has directions on how to get to it. To their surprise, they need to head Westbound. They speedily make their way to the famous place, anticipating the best chili dogs they ever had.
Sonic was still holding Amy's hand, even as there was a Police car chasing them for going somewhat fast. They lose the pursuer after heading for the woods. "1897 to Central, I had the subjects in sight. Looks like they were in a hurry for a nature walk. I'm pulling back from pursuit." The officer transmits. The Dispatcher gets an odd feeling when she hears this transmission. However, she keeps herself Professional. "10-4, Unit 1897. Continue patrol." She transmits.
Sonic and Amy finally arrive at "Big Daddy's Cantina". However, they worry about if they smell bad. They take turns sniffing each other, causing the other to blush. However, to their relief, they find that each other smells very good. Sonic whistles to know that it took them 2 hours to get there.
Sonic and Amy are widely known by the waiting staff. A rookie waitress nearly makes the mistake of insulting Amy's dress, which was white, and was surprisingly clean, considering where she was. On her dress, it read "Sonic and Amy = Forever." in a very curvy writing style. However, a waiter, who was more experienced on the job, whispers in the waitress's ear, "Those.... are Vegeta's guests! Be kind!" . The rookie leads them to a table, that gets the most romantic decorations, complete with small, lit candles. Sonic and Amy had their mouths as wet as a lake.
The waitress taking their order introduces herself, "Hi, you two! My name's Alice. I'll be your waitress, today. Anything you'd like to order?" to Sonic and Amy. The hedgehogs both answer in unison "We'd like two chili dog platters, please!". Alice marks the order on her pad. "Ok. I'll be right back." Alice takes off on her roller blade like shoes. Sonic and Amy discuss her attitude. "Sonic, I think she's very unprofessional. She kept munching on her gum! In a fancy restaurant!" Amy tells Sonic at a low volume. "I know what you mean, Amy. I think I've met her a few months back. She was worried about someone. I think she just got dumped. Just go easy on her!" Sonic whispers. 10 minutes later, Alice delivers each hedgehog their first chili dog platter. "There we are. Enjoy the first 24 chili dogs!" Alice chuckles. They both eat from theirs, and, on occasion, would play footsies while eating. Alice shudders when she sees that they finished eating their first platters within a span of 5 minutes. Alice sighs, annoyed. "I'll get your second platters." She does her unprofessional walk, once more.
Sonic rubs his chin. "I think you're right! She seems to not enjoy it, here! I heard her be more friendly to that family, the one with the spoiled brats!" Sonic whispers to Amy. Alice takes significantly longer to deliver the last 24 chili dogs, complaining that the platter trays she's holding are too hot. She winces as she delivers these ones. "Aaaahhhh. Pardon my lateness.... these are just burning me!" Alice takes a look at her arms after depositing the platters. She has some somewhat bad burn marks on her arms. "Maybe you should take care of those burns!" Sonic worriedly tells Alice, who groans and nods. "Yup. Good idea. Don't think I don't care of this job.... I got an earlier burn, today. Still hurts like mad. Today's just not my lucky day!" Alice runs off to see her supervisor, who allows her to go home to take care of her burns.
Sonic and Amy wait for their chili dogs to cool down a bit, seeing that they're just steaming just a little bit too much. They carefully eat the first few, knowing that they're still at a high temperature. Once they are at their third chili dog, Sonic and Amy eat their food somewhat slower, as they both nearly choked on their last chili dog. Once done, Sonic encourages Amy to join in on his cheer for the quality of their food. They shout, "These chili dogs were the ultimate best! 1,000 stars on a 10-star scale!". A new waitress, known as Serena, delivers Sonic and Amy their check. Sonic nearly chokes out of control, when he sees the bill is at $100,000 - one tenth of the reward money for capturing Victor, and exactly one fifth of his share of the cash!
Sonic and Amy wait for the cashier table to be crowded with incoming patrons. They have their opportunity when a loud football team cheers their victory. The hedgehogs leave without paying, thinking it's too much to give.
It takes a few minutes before the staff of Big Daddy's Cantina to realize what happened. They call 911. Shortly after the notification, officers interrogate the staff. A rookie cop hears on his radio "Attention, all units! We have visual sightings of the chili dog thieves on Highway 34, heading Eastbound. Subjects are travelling at approximately 100 km/h. Please, investigate." . Moments later, Police cars are heading in the direction from the Dispatcher's report. "Chopper 1 to Central, I have the subjects in sight. Got 'em lit! Chopper 1 to County, the subjects are taking serious evasive action!" The Police hear their helicopter report this on their radios.
They also hear their Dispatcher confirm that she acknowledged the transmissions. Soon, the Police hear "Attention, all ground Units, pull back! Sending reinforcements!" . Sonic and Amy are mystified when the see that the cruisers are abandoning the chase. However, when they are approximately 20 miles from home, they see what is happening. They realize that Water Bombers have been sent to their location.
Within moments of the arrival of the Water Bombers, Sonic and Amy are frightened when they see that there is water all over the highway. The ground units of the Police hear "Chopper 1 to all Units, the subjects are heading Westbound! Request roadblock formation!" The team of 40 Police cruisers form a roadblock consisting of 10 cars per row, resulting in 4 rows of ground units waiting for the "Subjects".
Sonic and Amy turn back when they spot the roadblock. They decide there's no choice, but to go through the water. "Chopper 1 to all Units, the subjects are heading Eastbound! They're going in the water!" The Police Helicopter pilot reports. "Chopper 1, this is Central. Keep us updated!" The Dispatcher transmits.
The great swim!
Sonic and Amy take a deep breath, before going through the water. Moments after they get into the water, Sonic and Amy find that it is very deep! The body of water feels like it is wide and deep as an ocean! It takes 50 minutes for Sonic and Amy to rise up for air. They take deep breaths, and dive back down, knowing they can swim faster underwater.
The Police gets discouraged when they hear "Chopper 1 to all Units, the subjects PASSED the water obstacle!" However, the Dispatcher had requested a road block on the other side of the highway, while waiting for the update. Sonic and Amy nearly give up all hope when they see Formula 1 Police Cruisers forming a road block. Sonic points to the nearest forest. "It's bumpy! But, it'll do! It's gonna give 'em a good shake!" Sonic explains the only escape route to Amy.
Amy sees no other options. As they run, the hedgehogs feel the water leaving their fur so rapidly, as if it all had slipped off of their bodies! The Police Dispatcher nearly breaks her headphones when she hears the helicopter pilot report that they went into the woods. "All ATV Units, we have the chili dog thieves in the woods of Highway 34! Please, investigate!" She felt herself screaming into the microphone out of desperation!
Sonic and Amy see that the woods are not giving the ATV Units any trouble! "Great! If we make it home, I promise I'll pay the dumb bill!" Sonic shouts, nearly panting from fear of getting captured. They are now 5 miles from home. Luckily, they make a jump that they know the ATVs cannot make.
Meanwhile, the Dispatcher on duty is replaced by a much calmer one. This one, an elderly man, tells the ATV patrol units to pull out, knowing that the jump ahead would risk their lives. "Affirmative. We're pullin' back!" The ATV Units reply on their radios.
Home, at long last!
As soon as Sonic and Amy arrive home, they are greeted by an angry Tails, who is showing them the News report of what's going on. "Sonic and Amy, the hedgehogs, stole $100,000 worth of chili dogs! LIVE, on location, the Police is now searching for the suspects. Any information on their whereabouts will land a $300,000 reward for each hedgehog." A News reporter says, while being filmed in front of the water trap from the Water Bombers.
The Hacker groans when he hears it on radio. "I had a feeling this would happen! Grrrr! I'll call the owner of the place. I know 'im real good!" The Hacker quickly pays for the bill by telephone.
Meanwhile, Amy Rose and Sonic are both ashamed, every time they look at Knuckles or Tails. They know they don't have enough money to convince them not to leak their location. Knuckles and Tails have a private discussion. ".... That's the only thing. It's going to be tough for them. But, worth it. It'll make them both think twice, before stealing, again!" Tails and Knuckles shake hands.
They tell Sonic and Amy that they want the hedgehogs to hand-write an apology letter to The Hacker and White Hawk, and in the letter, that they would babysit Moe and BIOS for an entire year, for free.
What will happen, however, to their marriage? Will Amy be so disgusted by her husband's actions, that she'll divorce him? Or, will Sonic explain to her so well, that she may never consider the option of divorcing him? Stay tuned!
