After a short walk, everyone arrived at the beach. It was Saturday, so it was crowded. Sonic dashed off and quickly found a good spot. Everyone laid down their towels and various beach equipment on the ground. Once they were all set up, everyone went off to do their own thing.
Amy went off into the water, dragging Sonic behind her. Sonic was panicking, even though he had a life jacket on. Rouge, and, against his will, Shadow, started building sand castles. Knuckles got out the portable grill and started cooking lunch. Silver went down to the water as well. He was having fun until he saw what Blaze was doing. She was sitting under her beach umbrella reading a book. Silver didn't like that. He wanted her to have some fun.
He remembered that when he was fighting Eggman, his arm had somehow stretched. Suddenly, a plan began to form in his mind. Experimentally, he stretched his arm towards Blaze and tapped her shoulder. As she started to look up, Silver pulled his hand back, leaving her looking around for who tapped her. She set down her book and got up, looking around. Now was Silver's chance. While Blaze's back was turned, he stretched his arms towards her, grabbed her by the waist, and pulled her into the water. She came to the surface and spit water out.
Blaze gave Silver a death glare. Silver gulped. Blaze splashed Silver, laughing. Silver laughed and splashed her back. Soon, they got into an all-out splashing war. After Knuckles called them in for lunch, Blaze and Silver got out of the water. Blaze grabbed a towel and began to dry herself off, while Silver merely shook himself like a dog. After he was done, his fur had puffed out, making him look like a giant puffball. Blaze saw him and laughed.
After lunch, which was delicious burgers made by Knuckles, Silver and Blaze felt the need for some dessert. So Silver and Blaze walked over to a nearby ice cream stand. As usual, Silver attracted a lot of stares and looks of fear. But he knew that as long as Blaze wasn't afraid of him, he was happy.
When they got to the ice cream stand, Silver and Blaze got their favorite ice creams. Silver got vanilla, and Blaze got strawberry. They were heading back to everyone else, when a little hedgehog girl came up to Silver. This caught Silver by surprise, as everyone but Blaze and his friends who had seen him as a beast was afraid of him. She reached her hands towards Silver, saying in that cute kiddish tone, "Doggy!"
Blaze's eyes started to shine. "She likes you Silver," she said. Smiling, Silver bent down to the kid, who proceeded to pet him on the head. This went on for a few seconds, until Silver heard a scream. Looking up, he saw a female hedgehog, obviously the girl's mother, standing a few feet away. She ran up her daughter and snatched her away from Silver. As she ran away from Silver, she pulled out her cell phone and dialed a number.
"Hello. Animal Control," said the voice on the other end of the line.
Silver and Blaze had rejoined their friends. They sat there licking their ice cream cones. At one point, Silver noticed that Blaze had a dollop of ice cream on her nose. He leaned in and licked it off. Blaze giggled at this.
Suddenly, pandemonium broke out. Vans from Animal Control swarmed them. Silver felt a pinch on the back of his neck. He felt something there, and pulled it out. It was a tranquilizer dart. Suddenly feeling very dizzy, Silver fell to the ground and passed out.
When Silver woke up, he felt like someone had taken a hammer to his head. When his vision had cleared enough to see his surroundings, Silver noticed he was in a cage. He tried to bash his way out, but he was too weak from the tranquilizer. He had been captured by Animal Control. What would they do to him?
