Shadow-..yes!! Yes! I Can Stand! Ha! I'm Bigger Again! Good Bbyyeee Diaper!
~shadow Quickly Ripped His Diaper And Now Tight Baby Clothes And Started Running Off~
Silver- Shadow! Wait! Come Back!!
~ Silver Yelled As He Watched Shadow Run Off~
Silver- Oy...your Not Back To Normal...
~ Shadow Ran At High Speed Till He Was Well Away From The Park, He Finally Stopped A Smile Beaming On His Face ~
Shadow- Finally.... No More Stupid Diapers Or Little Clothes, Bottles Or Baby Mush! I'm Finally Back To Norm-
~shadow Was Interrupted By A Cop Who Kneeled Down In Front Of Him~
Cop- Well Hello There Little Guy, Are You Lost??
~shadow's Eyes Were Wide..he Wasn't Back To Looking 18...judging By The Cop He Was Now About Four Years Old ~
Cop- Hum? Hey It's Okay Sonny I'll Help You Find Your Mother And Father
~shadow Was Still Speechless As The Cop Stood Up Then Picked Him Up And Started Walking Off, He Felt So Stupid.,,he Didn't Even Think To Check And Make Sure He Was At His Rightful Age Before Running Off And Now This Cop Was Going To Take Him To The Police Station.~
~the Cop Stopped And Looked At The Young Hedgehog~
Cop- So You Can Talk, What Is It?
Shadow- P-put Me Down!
Cop- I'm Sorry But I Can't Do That ^^" Your Parents Must Be Worried Sick About You, Well Help You Find Them Once We Reach The Station *starts Walking Again*
Shadow- B-but!..i Don't Really Have Parents....
~ Soon Shadow Was Sitting On A Chair At The Police Station Looking Down, The Officer Was Talking To Some Of His Co-workers About Him~
Shadow- Oy..*ears Droop* ..t-there Never Going To Think Of Looking For Me Here....what Am I Going To Do?...
~a Few Moments Later The Cop Walked Back Over~
Cop- Alright My Boy, Someone Is Here For You ^^
~shadow Quickly Looked Up At Him As His Ears Perked~
Cop- Yep, Come Along
~the Cop Took Shadow's Hand And Walks Outside, Shadow Looked Around But Couldn't See Amy, Sonic Or Even Silver Anywhere, Only A Woman Standing Outside Her Car~
Woman- Aww.. Is This Him?
Cop- Yes, The Tike Said He Didn't Have Any Parents, Well Of Course Be Checking Into It More But For Know It Would Be Best If He Went With You
Shadow- W-wait, Whats Going On???

Woman- Aw Come On, You'll Be Much Happier With Me Then Staying Here ^^
Shadow- L-let Me Go! I Wanna Go Home!
Woman- Don't Worry We'll Get You A New One ^^
~shadow's Eyes Widened As The Woman Put Him In The Back Seat Of The Car And Buckled Him In Before Getting Into The Drivers Seat~
Woman- And Until We Do, You'll Be Able To Make Lots Of Friends In The Orphanage ^^
Shadow- W-what?!?..n-no! Help!
~he Tried To Unbuckle His Seat Belt As The Woman Drove Off But It Was No Use..even If He Did Get It Off The Doors Were Locked...and So Shadow The Hedgehog Started To Cry And Wish He Hadn't Asked Silver To Change His Age ~
~amy Rose Yelled As Silver Told Her What Had Happened~
Silver- I-i'm Sorry Amy! I Tried To Follow Him But I'm Just Not As Fast As He And Sonic!
~amy Had A Look Of Anger And Fear On Her Face~
Amy- W-we've Got To Find Him! He Might Not Be An Infant But He's Still Just A Baby!!
Silver- *nods* Alright, Don't Worry Amy We'll Find Him!
~silver Flew Off As Amy Tried To Contact Sonic, Sonic Would Be Able To Search The City In Minutes..she Just Prayed Shadow Hadn't Left The City Limits And That He Was Safe....
The Woman Had Taken Shadow To The Sunnyside Orphanage, He Had Tried To Run Away When She Opened The Car Door But She Had Simply Grabbed His Arm And Took Him Inside, She Had Him Entered Into The Orphanage's Adoptive Database Then Took Him To The Play Room~
Woman- Now, You Go And Play And Be Good Alright?...
~she Left, Shadow Stood There, His Ears Drooped Down As Far As They Could Go...he Slowly Turned And Looked At All The Kids. Some Of Them Started At Him While Others Just Glanced Then Went Back To Playing, A Young Female Red Echidna Walked Up To Him~
Mae-lin- Hello ^^ I'm Mae-lin, Your New Right?
~shadow Just Looked At Her A Moment Then Slowly Nodded~
Mae-lin- I Thought So, What's Your Name?? ^^
Shadow- I-...i'm Shadow
Mae-lin- Huh.. That's An Interesting Name ^^did You..did You Just Lose Your Mommy And Daddy?
Shadow- No!..i'm..i'm Just Lost...
~ The Young Girl Seemed To Have A Knowing Look And Pat His Shoulder ~
Mae-lin- It's Okay Shadow..i'm Sure You'll Get A New Mommy And Daddy That Love You Soon ^^
Shadow-*pulls Away* No! I've Got Parents That Love Me! I Mean I..i..i....
~mae-lin Stepped Back A Bit As The Black And Red Hedgehog Started To Cry, She Looked Around Ran Off Then Came Back~
Mae-lin- D-don't Cry Shadow..i'm Sorry...h-here
~she Said Offering An Stuffed Rabbit, Shadow Looked At Her Rubbing Some Of The Tears From His Eyes Before Taking It And Giving It A Hug~
Mae-lin-*smiles* Your Welcome...^^..hy..um..would You Like To Play Or Something?
~shadow Thought A Moment Before Nodding~
Mae-lin-*claps* Great! *takes His Hand* Then Come On ^^ It's Not Really That Bad Here Shadow You'll See ^^
~ Amy Rose And Silver Searched The City All Day And Well Into The Night, Amy Stopped Back At Her House..hoping That Maybe, Just Maybe Shadow Had Made His Way Back But No..there Was No Sign Of Him, She Picked Up His Little Blanket From The Couch And Hugged It Starting To Tear Up~
Amy- Oh Shadow..p-please Be Okay...
~ Shadow Felt Better While He Played With Mae-lin But When They Were All Taken To There New Rooms He Suddenly Felt Horrible..he Wanted To Go Home..back To Sonic's Place Or Amy's...they Had Saved Him From G.u.n. Surely They Could Save Him From This Place...he Suddenly Frowned~
Shadow- S-stop It You B-big Stupid Baby...*gets Out Of Bed And Heads For The Door* Y-your The Ultimate Life-form...i-...i Can Get Out Of Here And Finds Momm- I Mean Amy Again On My Own...
~ Shadow Shook All Fear From His Mind And Tried To Remember Alllll The Training He Went Through Back On Ark As He Reached And Opened The Door...he Carefully Made His To The Front Door, He Ducked Behind A Potted Plant As The Same Woman Who Brought Him Walked By.....the Moment She Passed He Ran And Tried To Open The Door..but..it Was Locked!~
Shadow- No! *he Whispered* Keys..keys...um..
~ He Looked Around....then Went And Followed The Lady.....she Lead Him To An Office , Shadow Carefully Went In When Her Back Was Turned, He Hid As She Sat At The Desk And Looked Around, He Finally Saw The Keys Sitting On A Stand To The Lady's Right~
Shadow- Okay.........t-this Is Going To Be Hard.i-i Gotta Be Fast
~he Thought As He Readied Himself...he Was Going To Have To Run, Grab The Keys Then Run As Fast As He Could Back To The Front Door And Hope He Could Get It Unlocked Before He Got Caught...............................................~
~ He Thought To Himself Again..he Was Too Afraid..he Knew If He Did Try To Get The Keys He Was Going To Get Caught And He Had No Idea What She'd Do To Him......he Carefully Made His Way Back Out Of The Room And Back To His Bed, He Climbed Back In And Under The Covers And Started To Cry Thinking He Was Nothing But A Cowered.
The next morning Amy Woke up earlier to start looking for shadow again, she was just about to leave when someone started banging on her door~
Amy-?! ?hang on! who is it?!
~she ran and opened the door to find sonic standing there looking worried~
~She hugged him~
sonic- Amy! Have you found him yet?!?!
~Amy shook her head..she looked down starting to tear up again~
Sonic- Hey..*hugs her* Hey don't Cry Ames, We'll find him...I mean really..how much trouble can the little Faker get himself into??
