Halloween Party of Two (Taylor x Manic)It was finally Taylor's favorite holiday other than Christmas, and also the day before her birthday! She decided to specially mark Halloween as a party for her and her friends on Möbius, inviting the dragons down from Zeracen as well. She was genuinely excited for today, and she waited for what would be ahead.
What she was most excited about, was that she invited her friends Sonic, Sonia, and huge crush, Manic, to come too. To her, Manic was a really laid back, funny, and overall great guy to be around. Sonic knew about her crush on his brother very well, and Sonia did too since the two often talked with each other. In fact, Sonia had tried setting the two up on a date once or twice, but it never worked out because Taylor would get sick or Manic would be too busy with the Sonic Underground's concerts.
Taylor had just finished decorating her house with the help of Wolfwings, Greenstreak, and Mystery. The party was outside in her backyard since all of the dragons would be there, therefore crowding her house and maybe leaving no space for anyone else to show up. Besides, her backyard was fenced off quite well so the dragons could feel safe and secure knowing they won't be seen by her neighbors, which were hunters.
~Everything's all set up Tay!~ Greenstreak yowled with a purr as he ran over to the dark grey with cyan highlight-furred hedgehog. She hadn't put much thought into a costume, in fact she was pretty much wearing her normal clothes except there was a red scarf around her neck.
"Great! Now we just wait!" Taylor said with a smile running across her face. She couldn't wait to see Sonic, Sonia, and Manic soon.
~later that day...~
Finally there was a ring from the doorbell, signalling her friends had finally shown up. All of the dragons were already outside, including Zircon, who was reluctant to show up but had anyway due to the influence of Borealis. Taylor hopped over to the door and opened it, revealing just who she thought it was, the hedgehog sibling trio known as the Sonic Underground.
"What're you dressed as Manic?" Taylor asked curiously.
"Isn't it obvious? I'm a drummer!" Manic replied and the two laughed. Sonia and Sonic greeted Taylor as well, heading outside and hanging out with the dragons. Manic grabbed Taylor's hand before she could leave as well, causing her to blush.
"Hold on Tay, I need to talk to you." He said. Taylor tilted her head curiously, was he going to tell her he liked her?
The two sat down on the couch and Manic held both of her hands. Taylor's face heated up as she blushed, covering her pale face with tinted red. Manic smiled a bit and stared into her amber colored eyes with his own amber ones.
"Tay, look. I'm sorry I couldn't show up on all those dates. I tried really hard to make it, trust me I did."
"But... What I didn't realize was that I was chasing something I could chase with my siblings, when I can also be chasing something on my own." Manic said and he paused, his face tinting red as well as Taylor's.
"A-and that is?" Taylor stuttered.
"Well.. It's more someone but, I could be chasing you." Manic finally replied. Taylor smiled slightly, the two staring each other in the eyes.
"There's no need to chase after me, I've already liked you." Taylor said, and before she could say anything else, Manic closed the gap in between the two with a kiss. This party was something she'd never, ever forget. It was the day that the two finally got together, the day she knew her dream relationship was a reality.
