The jackal smiled as they talked about how to deal with certain problems with his cybernetics, but when they heard the announcements, he looked at Scourge with an annoyed look. But one thing that confused him was that she said her parents had died in the crash, but he didn’t question it. “Hmm?” He thought out loud, upon her saying t might have been her dad
"Moving a bit fast there though... that's alright." Soma says. "But what about our date?"
[i I wouldn't want to end this so soon just for my sake.] Soma says in her mind. [i He suffered through a lot... I don't want to add to his burdens.]
"But if you really want to go somewhere more private, sure..." Soma says. "I don't think I want to talk more about it though..."
Suddenly, a voice comes from speakers somewhere in the room.
[b "Attention please. We like to remind our guests that safety is our number one concern. As such, we implore everyone to be considerate of others during their stay, otherwise their stay here will be shortened considerably.
Thank you for your future cooperation."]
"Wait... that voice sounded very familiar to me..." Soma says. "...It sounded like... dad?!"
[b Secret room in Higher Okallius, minutes prior to Soma's first arrival.]
"The increase of instability has started to finally go back down." An old man says. "It seems time travel may have been what caused it."
"Who do you think it was this time?" A man asks. "There's been so many as of late, it's hard to keep track."
"No, you're talking about people coming from different worlds altogether." The old man replies. "This instance seemed to be someone in this world traveling to a different point in time twice then finally returning to their original time point."
"Do you think Eggman is responsible?" The man questions.
"Hey, we have some more visitors approaching." A woman states. "Two of them appear to be- wait... is that... Soma AND Maria?!"
He sighed and came over to her, carefully hugging her to make her feel better. “At least we have each other.” He said reassuringly, trying to be polite, as well as more friendly. “Maybe we can keep such things from happening in the past.” He said, and he sighed. “Maybe we can talk about this somewhere more private.” He said, and offered her his metallic hand to lead her somewhere
"O-oh... you... while you were little..." Soma says. "I... I..."
[i It may not be the same but... I can relate to him.] Soma says in her head. [i I may not have lost my arms but I still lost everything...]
"...I went through something similar too." Soma says. "My parents were... we were heading to somewhere when a..."
Soma sits down, trying to muster up the courage to continue.
"Some psychopath drove by next to us and rammed us off the road... while we were driving along a mountain pass..." Soma says. "I was the only one who survived it... I had to get a spine and kidney replacement..."
[i The only time I've told someone else about this and it's just to relate... I'm such a terrible person.] Some thinks as she leans her head in shame.
“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.
