Tales' room, Midnight. Sonic enters and sits on the bed where Tales is asleep.
Sonic: Tales you awake buddy?
Tales (sobbing): Just go away, Sonic.
Sonic: C'mon Tales don't be that way. Talk to me.
Tales: There's nothing to talk about.
Sonic: You're in here crying. Today when I called you in to fly me up to Robotnik's lair on Hill-Top zone you barely had the energy to get me up there. Your heart's not in it buddy I can see it. You have to tell me what's wrong.
Tales: It's us, Sonic we're over. I saw you with him.
Sonic (nervously): What do you mean him?
Tales: DON'T YOU FUCKING PLAY DUMB WITH ME SONIC!!! YOU KNOW DAMN WELL WHO I AM TALKING ABOUT. I SAW YOU WITH KNUCKLES!!!! I SAW YOU TWO TOGETHER LAST FRIDAY AT CASINO NIGHT ZONE!!!!!
Sonic: Tales honey .calm down. This is just a big misunderstanding .it wasn't what it looked like.
Tales: Oh really? Then tell me what it looked like. Because it damn well looked to me like he was giving you a handjob.
Sonic: Tales it wasn't .that wasn't
Tales: I know what I saw Sonic! (begins crying hysterically) So what? All the levels we went through together? All the Robotniks we beat surpisingly easily? All that and then we move on to Sonic 3 and this new red enchida comes along who can glide and climb walls and now I dont look so good to you no more Sonic?
Sonic: Tales I never meant for this to happen it just did. Don't be upset. I'm sorry? C'mon Tales .(puts an arm around him) C'mon .what do you say you and I take a trip to Emerald Hill Zone? Huh? Good old level one?
Tales: I hate that little red lolita. I'm going to fucking kill him.
Sonic: Tales this isn't his fault you know that. If it's anyones fault its mine. Im so sorry Tales, I never meant to hurt you.
Tales: Can I ask you something?
Sonic: Of course.
Tales: Is it better?
Sonic: Is what better?
Tales: The sex.
Sonic (quietly): He's gentler with me .I'm sorry Tales it's the truth. When we're out at work we're the perfect team .we're equals. It's amazing and I wish it were like that all the time. But when we're at home you're different.
Tales: What do you mean, 'different'?
Sonic: Oh God I didn't want to have to say this. Tales sometimes you treat me like a whore. Im sorry but its true! Iim sorry Tales, but it's over.
(Sonic runs from room)
Tales: I love you you bastard.
