One evening, Amy Rose was crying in her bed when she got home because she thought Knuckles the Echidna hated her, so Knuckles decided to apologize to her. Knuckles walked up to Amy and said, "Look, Amy. I'm sorry I yelled at you and made you cry like that." "No! Go away!" Amy sobbed. "But, Amy, I said I'm sorry. It's not your fault. It's mine. I shouldn't have cheated on you like that and I shouldn't have abused you too harshly. Can you ever forgive me?" Amy stopped crying and looked at Knuckles, with tears in her eyes. "Yes, you're right, Knuckles." Amy sniffled. "I forgive you for making me feel sad like this." Knuckles smiled and said warmingly, "Thanks, Amy. I know that Tikal and I broke up with each other, just like you and Sonic broke up with each other. And that's the reason why that I still love you, Amy." Amy smiled and said to Knuckles, "Oh, Knuckles. I love you!" Knuckles smiled back and replied, "I love you, too, Amy...always." Amy and Knuckles kissed passionately and realized that they love each other, so this was the act of true love.
