“Eh, when you put it that way, never mind...” Scourge said, and Raoul sighed. “Actually, it’s not that common, unless it’s due to roboticization...I had to have mine replaced after a horrific accident.” He said, and sighed. “It happened when I was little, my house collapsed, me being the only survivor out of my entire family.” He told the girl, sighing a bit. “Both my arms were crushed under the weight of the building.” He explained
"Scourge, you're telling me that basically... you would date yourself..." Soma says. "Isn't that called... selfcest?"
[i This certainly didn't just take a turn for the weird with Scourge and Breach.] Soma thinks to herself. [i And here I was thinking of them as like a sibling duo, not... eugh, that's just weird.]
"Anyway... wha- no, why would I be freaked out by your arms?" Soma asks. "Isn't it unfortunately common for people to have cybernetics in Mobius?"
[i I maybe shouldn't have said it like that.] Soma thinks.
"Er, I didn't mean to say like it's a bad thing to have, I just meant that as in unfortunate what people normally have to go through to end up needing them!" Soma says. "If you think cybernetic arms are going to make me think different of you, well, I guess it would make me think you're cooler and stronger than the average person but it certainly won't make me think badly of you."
Scourge looked at her, and shrugged . “I’m not jealous, mainly bored...plus if I had to date someone, I’d date her.” He said, pointing to Breach, because she was just like him. Raoul sighed. “W-wait, you aren’t freaked out because of my arms?” He asked, being kind of surprised. “Most people don’t like me because of just that.” He told her, and he looked around, noticing a few more stares pointed in his direction.
"...I mean, I wouldn't think you would plan to trip and spill water on yourself?" Soma says as she goes over to him to help him up. "Why would you feel the need to say that?"
[i Who would plan to have an accident?] Soma wonders. [i And is Scourge jealous of someone having a date or something?]
"And why did you trip him, Scourge?" Soma asks as she turns to him and Breach. "Are that bored that you want to try messing with someone's date?"
[i It's better than them trying to kill someone but pranks can end up hurting people more than you would think.] Soma thinks to herself. [i I just hope there won't be any fights breaking out because of this...]
“It is alright Soma, I don’t mind at all, honestly.” He said, admiring her dress. “I must say, I admire your dress, but not as much as you!” He said truthfully. And soon they went to the restaurant that was on a different floor of the pyramid. Soon they were seated and they were looking at the menus, and both eventually decided on a simple meal of steak with a nice gravy on top. “I will get us some water.” He said, walking to another part of the restaurant. As he was in the back, Scourge and Breach came into the restaurant, being their usual selves, but they both sat down at the table nearby, talking about mischief. “So, what kinda pranks should we start pulling on them?” Breach asked, smirking. “Dunno...” Scourge said, and he held out his foot as Raoul passed by, making him trip and end up dumping the pitcher of water all over his shirt and vest, the sleeves going transparent to where Soma could see his silver metal arms. “Oh dear, this wasn’t planned!” He said, very nervous.
"I... guess I should get something nice on too then." Soma says. "But... I don't have anything for a date..."
"It's the thought that counts, Soma!" Maria says.
"Well yeah, but that doesn't just give me new clothes!" Soma replies. "I should have asked Honey for a set to wear on dates but again, I never planned to date anyone..."
"I could take to the city to get new clothes for this and back, if you want." He says. "But there's no way I'll be able to help you decide what to wear."
"No, I don't want to take you away from Maria so soon..." Soma says.
"Oh, then I can go too!" Maria suggests. "I do need new clothes since all of mine were left behind..."
"Now you have no more excuses to use, Soma." Shadow says.
"F-fine, since you're being so pushy about it!" Soma responds.
Shadow takes them both to Honey's for clothing shopping, don't ask how. After some time, they come back to see Raoul waiting presumably for Soma.
"Sorry to keep you waiting!" Soma says, now wearing something casual yet formal for the date. "Shopping is not my specialty, and I'm really bad at making such simple decisions..."
He smiled a bit, his tail wagging back and forth happily, and he bowed as well, having some manners. “This place is quite bigger than you think...” he said, and stood up again. “However, I cannot stay and chat, I do need to make sure I have a spare outfit ready for them.” He said nervously, and she could hear a slight whirring when he moved his arms but before she could question it, he walked off, and when he got to his room, he immediately took off his shirt and vest, along with his gloves, revealing his cybernetic arms, which had resulted from the collapsing house he survived. “I hope she doesn’t reject me if she finds out...” he told himself, then after a while, he got his outfit on and made sure to put his gloves on to hide his robotic arms, that way she didn’t freak out. And at exactly noon, he was waiting in the main room, waiting for Soma to join him.
[i There's... there's a restaurant here?] Soma thinks then looks around, looking for it. [i I really need to have a look around soon then...]
"Oh, you haven't- o-oh." Soma says as she turns back to Raoul then is suddenly handed the flowers. "...Well, you don't need to worry since this will be a first for me because I've never dated before, ever..."
Maria gets a surprised look at what Soma just said.
"I know I'm one to talk but, you've never dated before?" Maria asks.
"No... wasn't exactly able to at the orphanage..." Soma answers. "Besides, I never thought about me dating anyone until well, now."
"Sounds like you need to discover for yourself then!" Maria says. "At least, that's how I look at it."
“Maybe here? He asked, his ears peeking up a bit, and the shaking slightly lessened, and he had a hopeful look on his face. “I-I um...I hope this isn’t too sudden...it’s just...I’m not used to being the one asking to go to lunch with other people...” he said, chuckling nervously. “I...I want you to have these...” He said, handing her the bouquet carefully, having a more upbeat tone than earlier, as he hoped that he had found a person that he could finally be able to have a relationship with that might last
"A-again, by personality t-too, Maria would be-" Soma tries to say then Shadow shoots her a death glare, causing her to stop from saying more about Maria. "Er, I mean u-uh..."
[i This is so sudden, I can't possible think about dating at a time like this!] Soma exclaims in her head. [i But I don't want to hurt his feelings since he's being so courageous here...]
"I-I... lunch, sure!" Soma says. "D-do... do you have someplace specific in mind?"
[i This would be my first time ever thinking about dating... not even back on Earth did I ever think about it.] Soma thinks.
“I speak truthfully...and I don’t always mean how one looks either...true beauty is what makes one different, personality can make a difference, he said, smiling a bit, and she could see he was shaking, as the flowers seemed to be shuddering. “I-I was wondering...if you would like to have lunch with me later?” He asked, stuttering here and there, hoping she wouldn’t be like the others. That was when she realized that he was practically asking her on a date, but he seemed to be almost a nervous wreck about it.
"I... what?" Soma replies, surprised at the sudden words spoken by Raoul. "You... you think I'm..."
Soma fully realizes what he said then starts blushing madly and quickly tries to hide her face with her shirt.
"Th-there's no way I'm the p-prettiest person you have ever seen!" Soma says. "I-I mean there's uh... th-there's Honey, R-Rouge, Blaze, I even th-think Maria looks prettier than me!"
One could see the twitching on Shadow's face from that statement and expect him to be thinking violent thoughts at the thought of someone trying to date Maria right now.
[i Oh frick, I didn't think before saying that!] Soma thinks to herself. [i I hope I didn't just piss him off so bad that he'll snap at Raoul!]
"Er, s-sorry, didn't mean to bring you into th-this Maria!" Soma says. "And sorry t-to you too Shadow!"
Shadow just lets out an annoyed sigh then Maria giggles and pats his head.
"B-but yeah... how c-could I be the prettiest-t person you have seen?" Soma asks.
The jackal smiled a bit, “I am Raoul, a rather down on luck jackal...” he said, frowning a bit, and he sighed, looking at her. “I was just looking around to see what this place was like after I woke up...and then I saw you...and to me, in all honesty, are the prettiest person I have ever had He fortune of setting my eyes upon.” He said, being kind and gentlemanly. His face was filled with some delight, but also nervousness, due to being rejected so many times.
"Wow Shadow, you are just so blunt, but I doubt you would be the same with Maria!" Soma says. "I bet if for example, she drew something she was really proud of but it looked terrible, you would say it looks like it belongs in a museum!"
"Well, I uh..." Shadow replies.
Maria starts giggling a little.
"If I had a terrible drawing, I would want someone to tell me because otherwise I wouldn't get better!" She says. "Though I don't plan on being an artist anytime soon, the general idea of what I said would be the same with anything I would want to improve on."
"Man, you both really are cute together!" Soma says. "You just bring out Shadow's soft side so easily!"
"Hey, I am not-... grrr." Shadow replies. "You two better not tell anyone else because I have a reputation to uphold still!"
Both Soma and Maria laugh.
"Don't worry, your secret is safe with us, right Soma?" Maria says.
"Yeah, I wouldn't dare trample on your cool guy atmosphere that you worked so hard to achieve- huh?" Soma says then turns to the new person who started talking to her. "I didn't expect so many people to be here- but no, I've only just arrived here yesterday for the first time."
"Was there a wedding here?" Maria whispers to Shadow.
"Not that I was aware of." Shadow whispers back.
[i Is this place a vacation spot?] Soma wonders. [i Or is it actually a city?]
"So... uh, my name is Soma!" Soma says. "Nice to meet you mister uh..."
The jackal smirked as she entered the completed desert base. “Alright boys, time to put our plan into action...” she told her soldiers, and they rallied near her. “We need to make sure hat every badnik in this place is dismantled in the quickest time possible, and by any means necessary...” she told them, and hey all grabbed tools and any kind of blunt object to smash the badniks with. Scourge and Breach both were getting some food, as they hadn’t eaten for a while, so both were enjoying some chili dogs in the food court.

Out of the corner of her eye, Soma could see a well dressed jackal, holding a bouquet of flowers, hoping to find someone to be with, but was down on his luck, as most rejected him after they found out about his arms, which were mechanical after an accident involving his family’s house collapsing on them, crushing both his arms, but he managed to hide it from people. When he saw the young lady, he smiled a bit, and came over to her, standing like a gentleman would. “Hello, I do not believe we’ve met quite yet?” He asked politely
