What rotten luck it was, to be in such a position. Sonic the Hedgehog, Miles “Tails” Prower, Amy Rose, and Cream the Rabbit were stuck outside, late at night, in downtown Central City, fat and starving. Earlier that evening, they had been ambushed by Dr Eggman, captured, and imprisoned in one of his bases. When Sonic and his friends woke up, they found themselves hooked up to a large machine, each having a hose in their mouth that was coming from a large machine filled with a light brown, pudding-like substance. Before they could even react, Eggman had flicked the switch on the machine, which began to force feed the group the strange substance, blowing them up like fat filled balloons. Whatever the substance was, it was thick and sweet, and by the time they were filled up, they were craving more of the substance and so were their loudly growling stomachs. But Eggman just laughed, saying that “meal time” was over, before he forced the captive quartet (who were in no position to fight due to their heavy bodies, and the devastating hunger that had suddenly taken over their bodies) into his ship, before flying them over to the deepest part of Central City far away from their homes.
“Good look getting home, fatties!” Eggman cackled, before he flew away. “Here's hoping you survive the immense hunger my latest experiment put you through. Try not to resort to cannibalism if you can't make it home! HOHOHOHO!” Eggman flew off laughing at their predicament. “Of course, it's not just their bodies that'll be affected,” he smirked. “The hunger they're going through will over take even their minds, until they can no longer think about anything but food and their hunger. I wonder what the result will be; maybe they WILL eat each other. Ha ha...good luck with them finding a place open or not crowded at this time of night.”
Sonic, Tails, Amy and Cream watched helplessly as Eggman left them stranded there, faced with a long walk home, an unfamiliar part of the city, and no way to contact Knuckles, Shadow or any of their other friends. It didn't help that almost everything looked unfamiliar at night time, not to mention it was just after 11 o'clock. With everyone's immense fat, coupled with their excruciating hunger, they couldn't run or do any physical activity except walking. With the late hours, the buses and taxis had stopped running and had closed their businesses for the night. Needless to say...tonight was NOT their night.
“Ugh...so friggin' hungry,” Sonic complained as he held his loudly growling belly, clutching it as he felt the sharp pangs of hunger tormenting him. Due to the immense weight that had been put on him, and the unbearable hunger put upon him, using his speed was out of the question. In fact, Sonic reasoned that using his speed would only make him hungrier. Besides, he couldn't just leave his friends behind to suffer in their hunger by their selves.
“Nrgh...starving...” Tails grumbled. His belly growled like a wild animal as he wrapped his tails around it, trying to squeeze it. Tails couldn't think of anything other than trying to satisfy his hunger. He didn't even want to think about flying, feeling that any form of exercise would make him even hungrier.
“Oooooh...” Amy moaned as she clutched her growling belly. “Need...food...” Amy was already starting to wish she had brought a sandwich with her, at least. Right now, being fat and round was the least of her problems; she couldn't focus on trying to look good for Sonic right now, only getting some food.
Cream whimpered pathetically as she held her own growling belly. The immense hunger she was feeling was unbearable. She was already wishing she was back at home, for dinner, where her mother would be sure to feed her. Instead, she was lost in town, far away from her mother, and being so hungry it was starting to hurt. “Soooooooo hungry.”
The quartet knew they had to find somewhere to eat, and fast. If they didn't find somewhere to eat, and fast, they'd faint. Not only that, but their stomachs would never stop growling. Central City was bound to have some restaurants open. The 4, fat, starving Mobians just had to brave through the intense hunger they were feeling and find somewhere they could satisfy their hunger. Sonic, Tails, Amy and Cream waddled down the street, splitting up to search for a place to eat, clutching their loudly growling, fat but empty bellies.
As Sonic wandered about, he caught sight of a shop reading “Darla's Donuts.” “Mmmm...donuts...” Sonic said as he shut his eyes. His belly growled loudly as he imagined himself pigging out on a near endless pile of donuts. Sonic rubbed his belly as he imagined himself stuffing doughnut after doughnut into his fat belly. “Ooooh yeah...” Sonic waddled closer to the doughnut shop, opening his eyes. “...wait...CLOSED!?” It turns out the doughnut shop had closed during Sonic's fantasy. His stomach growled in protest, and Sonic growled in disgruntlement. “Great...JUST great...”
Holding his loud, growling belly, Tails murmured in annoyance as he tried to find anywhere that he and the others could eat at. He wasn't picky either, Tails was so hungry right now that ANY food sounded good. “There has to be somewhere...” He muttered, before noticing a Subway restaurant nearby. “Subway? Perfect...” Tails closed his eyes as he imagined walking in, and ordering as many submarine sandwiches as he could. Tails imagined ordering everything on the sandwiches; mustard, lettuce, pickles, olives, salami, cheese, anything! Then he would eat everyone of those subs, one at a time, until his stomach filled up the restaurant. However, when Tails came back to reality, his heart sank as he realized that the place had closed JUST as he snapped out of the trance, much to his chagrin.
Amy grumbled irritably as she rubbed her growling belly. “Need...food..NOW...” She murmured. Amy hadn't felt this hungry since that horrible crash diet she took months ago. She didn't enjoy being so fat either, especially in front of Sonic...but she couldn't think about even Sonic now; she had to attend to her lack of having food, and how necessary it was to get some NOW. Amy suddenly spotted “Mobi-Burger” nearby. She noticed the sign that said “Open 24 Hours” and figured she'd have no trouble getting food here. Amy closed her eyes as she dreamed of the potential meals inside. Her belly growled as she fantasized about walking in and ordering everything on the menu. All the burgers, fries, soda, pies, nuggets, fish sandwiches and more would be placed on the table for Amy to eat. She be stuffing everything into her mouth at once, only stopping to breath and guzzle down some soda, continue to do so until her dress burst open, leaving Amy in only her white bra and panties. In reality, Amy's belly growled loudly, bringing her back to the real world. Amy snapped out of it and was about to head inside, only to see the entire restaurant was packed tightly with people. “NO!!!!” Amy whined, while her belly growled again.
Cream had wandered off on her own, looking for someplace to satisfy her hunger, whimpering away as her belly growled like a wild dog. Oh how she hated being hungry; she wished she was back home, but it seemed like that wasn't an option. But then she spotted an ice cream shop nearby in her line of vision. Her eyes widened with joy as she began to fantasize wandering in and ordering the biggest ice cream dessert possible. Cream would order vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, rocky road, lemon, peppermint swirl, mint chip, and more. Then she would order chocolate syrup to drench it all in, with chocolate sprinkles. Finally, Cream would have maraschino cherries decorate the giant ice cream desert, before wolfing it down, sticking her face right into the frozen delight, slurping it up like a hungry pig until her dress burst, leaving in her undies and relaxing in the bowl. Cream wandered towards the Ice Cream parlor in a trance, until she snapped back to reality and saw a heartbreaking sight, the ice cream parlor, somehow, was VERY busy this night, with a long waiting line and all seats full. Cream pouted childishly in defeat as she wandered away.
Sonic, meanwhile, still holding his belly, was searching for another place to eat. His hunger seemed to get worse and worse, and the growls grew louder. “Gh...food...” He muttered, unable to think about anything else. As he wandered about he looked at the street lamps nearby. “Looks like..Candy Canes...” Sonic's hunger ridden mind fantasized about the lamp posts turning into candy canes. Sonic licked his lips like a ravenous animal as he looked at the “candy cane” lamp posts. Suddenly, something caught the corner of his eye, his belly growling at what was seen; an Italian restaurant; Italian, one of the greatest foreign foods of all time. This is when Sonic's mind was filled with the thoughts of Italian food. He could just picture himself eating pasta, lasagna, pizza and other Italian delights. Sonic could just walk in and order every pasta dish on the menu, with any sauce on there. Seafood might be a good add-on as well; spaghetti and lobster sounded nice about now. And as for pizza, Sonic could order one with EVERYTHING on; pepperoni, olives, mushrooms, onions, sausages, cheese, peppers, even anchovies. Sonic's belly growled in approval, urging Sonic to go closer to the restaurant. But as he did, he could see every table packed filled with customers, with a line of people outside waiting to get in. Sonic was NOT happy; in fact, he was irritated, as he growled along with his belly.
Tails was getting grumpy, as his belly growled louder and louder. His immense hunger was starting to affect his mood now; if he didn't get to eat something soon, he'd REALLY be upset. “Shut up, belly...” Tails mouthed off to his belly, which growled back at him. “Uuuuugh...” Suddenly, his eyes caught sight of a local BBQ Pit “Mama Gator's BBQ Pit.” “BBQ...” Tails shut his eyes amidst the belly growls, imagining him rushing into the BBQ pit, smelling the rich BBQ sauce smell. BBQ meant chicken wings, ribs, pork chops, fish, burgers and more. Tails could see it now, all that BBQ piled in front of him, devouring every meaty morsel, getting sauce all over his fingers and face, picking those bones as clean as he could. The ribs would be so tender, with different kinds of spicy, sweet or sticky sauce, staining Tails' muzzle and gloves. In reality, Tails HAD to get over there, but the closer he got, the more he could see the long line-up coming from the BBQ pit. “Uuuuugh...” Tails growled alongside his belly as he saw the near endless lineup coming from the restaurant; this meant NO service. Now Tails was even grumpier as he cursed under his breath.
Amy was starting to get desperate as she rubbed her loudly growling belly. She needed food, NOW. But where was she going to get it? Suddenly, she spotted a French Restaurant. French; another famous foreign food. Amy's hungered mind fantasized of the various fancy French dishes she could get her hands on. Croque Monsieurs grilled to perfection, dripping with cheese and ham all over. Or some nice hot french onion soup; all those little onions swimming about. Steak and fries; a thick juicy fillet minion and greasy french fries would fill Amy up. And the pastries! Macarons and Eclairs galore. Amy could snack and eat until she was bursting out of her dress and speaking French herself. But when Amy got close enough...the lights went right out, the shop closing for the night. Amy whimpered pathetically amidst her belly growls, defeatedly walking off. “Why...me...” She mumbled, as she held her belly sadly, wondering if she'd EVER taste food again.
Cream was in distress as her own belly was growling loudly for food. “Nnnnnnngh....!” She whined as she held her growling belly, shutting her eyes in frustration. “Must...get...food...NOW. But...where!?” Places seemed to be either full or closed. Cream knew there had to be SOMEWHERE that'd be available. Suddenly, she spied “Fiesta Funhouse,” a well known Mexican Restaurant. “Mexican...” Cream's hunger ridden mind fantasized about the potential Mexican dishes inside. Tacos, filled with beef, cheese, and various vegetables; they could be in either soft or hard tortilla, chewy or crunchy, either would be good. Or burritos! Burritos stuffed with beans, beef and cheese, with sour cream; all rolled up in a soft tortilla, just full of thick, beefy goodness. Cream even thought about a giant bowl of nachos would be nice; crispy, salty nachos covered with thick cheesy sauce and thick, chunky, spicy salsa. Some beef sprinkled on, along with sour cream and guacamole would further their taste even more so. Enchiladas; another good Mexican food would sound filling to Cream. Stuffed with chicken, bananas, fish, beef, or anything else, enchiladas would sound about good now. A loud, belly growl woke Cream from her trance, in time for a disheartening sight; the sight of the restaurant closing up for the night. With a downcast, pathetic look, Cream had to refrain from crying as she trudged off.
The 4 Mobians met back up, “greeting” each other with loud belly growls from their empty, fat stomachs. They just looked blankly at each other, giving simultaneous groans of displeasure as they held their noisy bellies.
“Hungry...” Sonic grumbled, clutching his growling belly and bending over, as if trying to make his stomach quiet.
“Starving...” Tails mumbled, dropping onto his growling belly, seemingly becoming weak from the intense hunger.
“Famished...” Amy groaned, dropping onto her fat rump, hugging her loud stomach and wishing the hunger would go away.
“Empty...” Cream whimpered, on her knees, and closing her eyes, trying not to listen to her stomach growling.
Just about every restaurant they tried had been either full or closed. How could this night be so cruel to the 4? Bad luck had really been following them this night; Eggman capturing them, fattening them up and making them extremely hungry, and dropping them off in the middle of town LATE at night. All they could think about was their crippling hunger; said hunger was wracking not just their stomachs, but their brains as well. In their fevered minds, they could FEEL their stomach growling, their brains screaming out for food of any kind, even though there was none.
Suddenly, everyone's noses sniffed once...twice...three times. They looked over yonder and saw “Peter, Peter, Pizza Eater” Central City's local pizza joint. Sonic and Tails knew well of this place, often stopping here when they were in the area.
“Pizza...” Everyone muttered as the fantasies began to kick in.
Sonic imagined ordering as many pepperoni and cheese pizzas he could pay for, piling on more pepperoni and garlic bread, before rolling each pizza like a burrito and cramming them in his mouth one at a time, filling up his bulging belly until he felt like he would burst.
Tails imagined himself ordering super large and super stuffed calzones...biting into each one, ripping into them like large sandwiches, as the toppings inside splattered onto his face and belly. But he wouldn't care; he'd stuff the whole thing into his mouth one by one.
Amy thought of ordering the largest pizza possible with every single topping they had; the ultimate works. Pepperoni, peppers, mushrooms, sausages, cheese, even the anchovies would sound good right about now. When she'd get this pizza, she'd stuff her face in and just snort up every single thing on that pizza like a hungry pig.
Cream fantasied about ordering one thousand personal pizzas, each with a different topping on for variety. She'd juggle them like balls, tossing them into the air before opening her mouth and letting them all in her mouth one at a time, making her a happy “little” food balloon. Oh that'd be perfect!
Before any of them could act though, they heard the sounds of movement from inside the pizza parlor, snapping them out of their fantasies, just in time to see the lights go off, as the employees shut down the restaurant for the night.
Sonic, Tails, Amy, and Cream just stared in disbelief at their rotten luck; just stared as if unable to process this cruel twist of fate. Then, with 4 simultaneous belly growls echoing through the night...the four just collapsed on the sidewalk, succumbing to the crippling hunger, finally admitting defeat. Their stomachs continued to growl angrily, demanding food, demands that they could not give. They were tired from the lack of food, from walking about, just completely out of energy. They couldn't go on anymore, certain they were going to wither away right here from hunger. What a way to go; but there was nothing they could do; it was like Eggman KNEW this rotten string of luck would occur, and now they were at the end of the line. Unable to keep their eyes open, Sonic, Tails, Amy and Cream began to lose consciousness, their ears filled with the sounds of their growling bellies. If it weren't for their angrily rumbling stomachs, the quartet would of heard the sounds of footsteps, or noticed three shadows looming over, or three voices exclaiming shock.
“Whoa! What the heck's happening here!?”
“Dear God...what happened to them!?
“Oh my! Quickly! Let's get them back to my place before they wither away to nothing! The poor dears!”
For what seemed like an eternity later...
“Hey! Wake up! Come on now, dears...please wake up...look what we've got for you!” A gentle, motherly voice said.
“C'mon guys! Rise and shine!” A friendly, yet tough voice exclaimed.
“Wake up, fatties...before your stomachs do it for you.” A sarcastic, amused tone teased.
4 simultaneous stomach growls followed at the same time, waking up the 4 fat mobians. Sonic, Tails, Amy and Cream all woke up, groaning from their hunger induced weakness...when they suddenly noticed the warm air around them...and the smell of freshly cooked food. They all sat up to find themselves seated in front of a large table, stacked with various foods of all kinds; burgers, pizza, sushi, fish and chips, curry, tacos, burritos, the various foods they had only been able to dream of. At the front, there stood Vanilla Rabbit, along with Knuckles the Echidna and Shadow the Hedgehog. But most of all, they were focused on the incredible bounty before them. Right now, their bellies were growling so much and their brains were so racked with hunger, they could not even speak. But they did not need to, as Vanilla spoke.
“It's all for you, dears,” Vanilla said with a smile. “We could hear your growling stomachs from across town. It's a good thing we found you; I'm not sure what Eggman did to you all, but rest assured, you'll get food.”
“Yeah, just...try not to eat us, okay?” Knuckled joked, only to be smacked in the back of the head by Shadow.
Not wasting a minute, Sonic, Tails, Amy and Cream dove into their food. Finally, after what seemd like hours of suffering with cruel luck, they finally caught a break this night.
Sonic was stuffing chilli dogs one after another, chilli smearing his muzzle as he ate, before washing it down with some cola. He went for some chicken wings next, enjoying the sweet, yet spicy sauce on them, this time for real. Sonic felt like he hadn't eaten in weeks, even though what had been done to him was only very recently. But it didn't matter anymore, Sonic FINALLY had food, and he was going to satisfy his hunger, and his belly had ceased its roars. He moved onto a thickly topped pizza, inhaling the pepperoni, sausage, peppers, mushrooms, and even the anchovies, filling up his growing fat belly, while his rump widened in his seat.
Tails was currently in a blissful world of his own as he guzzled down a whole plate of sushi. Even the taste of raw fish was heaven to him right now, as his belly finally ceased growling. Tails moved onto some fish sticks next, making sure to dip them nice and deep in the tartar sauce, drenching them as much as possible. He grabbed a handful of french fries next, stuffing them into his face, before shoveling in some heavily buttered bread next. After he washed it down with a tall glass of fruit punch, Tails drank a large bowl of ramen, noodles, broth and all, straight from the bowl, as his body swelled like a fatty balloon, before he snarfed up a large plate of pasta with sauce, meatballs, and Parmesan cheese.
Amy was stuffing cheeseburgers into her gullet, thankful that her belly had stopped rumbling now that she had some foot. Feeling like she hadn't tasted food for an eternity she was shoveling burgers and chicken nuggets into her mouth. Washing it down with ginger ale, Amy moved onto some burritos that were dripping with beef, cheese and beans; they were so delicious that she didn't care if they gave her gas later, they were too good to pass up. The more Amy ate, the bigger she was filling out, much like in her fantasies; only this time for real. Amy was so engrossed in REAL, delicious food (as opposed to fantasizing about it), that she couldn't hear her dress ripping open at the back or front, before it brust off in two halves, leaving Amy in her white bra and panties.
Cream was squealing in delight as she hungrily ate everything in front of her. She started off with hotdogs, dipping them in her lemonade to moisten them and wolf them up quicker, before moving onto some sauce smeared, BBQ ribs, getting her muzzle all messy. Next for Cream was a fresh bowl of Ceaser Salad, complete with crutons, shredded cheese, and creamy dressing. The ice cream...oh, the ice cream...Cream was enjoying vanilla, chocolate, orange cream, tutti frutti, peppermint swirl and others, often mixing the flavors together, thankful to be able to eat her favorite sweet treat once more. The more Cream ate, the bigger she got, to the point where HER dress ripped off as well, leaving her in light blue undies with pink flowers.
Vanilla and company watched as the 4 ate everything on the table, before the sound that followed was not four growling bellies, but 4 loud burps!
“Oh my!” Vanilla giggled. “Sounds like you're all full!”
“Eeeeewww!!” Shadow and Knuckles grimaced at the sounds of the burps, NOT having wanted to hear them. “GROSS!”
“Ahhhh...THAT was SO good,” Sonic sighed, thinking clearly, now that he was no longer racked with hunger.
“Sure was,” Tails wagged his tails. “I've never felt so hungry in all my life. What the heck did Eggman feed us with?”
“Who knows...but let's make sure he doesn't subject anyone else to it.” Amy said.
“I wouldn't wish such horrible, excruciating hunger on ANYONE,” Cream added.
“Well...now that we finally satisfied our bellies and can think straight...I think it's time for a little after dinner snooze,” Sonic said, as he relaxed in his chair.
His 3 friends all sighed in agreement, before they also drifted off to sleep.
“So adorable,” Vanilla giggled, walking over to Cream, and rubbing her daughter's belly. “Rest dear...you and your friends are safe at home with full tummies.”
Cream giggled in her sleep, as her belly gurgled happily from fullness. She held her stuffed belly with a cute smile on her messy face.
Knuckles and Shadow looked at each other and nodded. They both agreed it was time to pay Eggman a little impromptu visit, as they cracked their knuckles and smirked in sinister manners.
