"….um I’ll just say yes." she laughed nervously. "So…what is this city called?" she asked, eyes still moving about the landscape as she twirled to take it all in.
Letting the door close behind him, Sonic took a second to look about. He had never been a fan of the big city, with very few exceptions, but he had to admit there was something about Grand Metropolis that he always liked. Maybe it was the bustle or the design but it was about the only bigger city he could stand for more than a day at a time. “Grand Metropolis and I hope you’re not too afraid of heights~”
"Well since you’re ‘bout the only ‘bot I talk to nowadays that’s gonna be pretty hard. What’d you need t’ do exactly?"
"Alright then waddya wanna do? ‘Cuz I’m not exactly beat either."
"I know that," he stated, revealing himself before the blue speedster.
He knew he wasn’t his Sonic, but hey- That just made the discovery even better. He didn’t… Want to see his at the moment. That sounded harsh, but it was for a good reason.
"Hey buddy." He smiled - age had treated him well, his fur was sleeker and his muzzle had a handsome point to it instead of the chubby bubber nose he had as a cub. Not to mention he was taller, which was probably the most noticeable thing.
The outlandish notion that this could have somehow been his Tails was thrown out the second Sonic got a good look at the fox. Way too tall, and far too old. Disappointment flashed in those jade eyes but the hedgehog quickly recovered, though the awkward grin he aimed at Tails hardly made that apparent.
A whole year and you still can’t get over this, hero?
"Hey, lookin’ good there, kid." It was the truth, Sonic had never taken too much time to wonder what his little brother would look like a few years down the road but now he had his answer he liked what he saw. "So…this might be a weird question but you are Tails, right?” Who knew with alternates nowadays.
“Still in pretty good condition, though.” Captain Obvious was quickly becoming the hedgehog’s new title. “So is it only the royals who live here?”
"Not just the royals. My body guards live here too. My friends also lived here for a while until their houses were finished being built. The first floor of the castle, along with the garden, are always open to the public as well."
"Cool, so you’ve got like a free-for-all thing going on. Never heard’a that before, not in a castle anyway. How come you’ve never asked me t’ stay here~?" Feigning disappointment the hedgehog turned his gaze to Debbie, putting on his best pout.
It wasn’t the first time a human had ogled and it sure wouldn’t be the last time so Sonic merely rolled his eyes at their unneeded attention before announcing something in a different tongue to them all. Boy did they avert their gazes after that, and rather quickly. “Come on,” with a small gesture he lead Meredith to the front doors.
Now her curiosity is peaked. “What the hell did you say to them?” she inquired, following behind her little blue friend.
The hedgehog just shrugged, opening the glass door for the Farmer. “Something along the lines of how I found their noses in something that wasn’t their’s, ‘s all, and since no one in their right mind’s gonna do anything t’ make the one guy who bothers t’ save them from being ruled by a maniac question that fact, ‘s safe t’ say they got the hint.”
