Sense Of Serenity Ch.3
Chapter 3: Future's Promise
A gust of polar wind howled through Knothole, searching for any creature unfortunate enough to be caught out in the storm. Nothing moved in the secluded valley. Every creature was safe in their homes, warmed by cozy fires and surrounded by family and friends. Winter had a firm grip on the Great Forest and its inhabitants, causing a general feeling of reticence and sedateness. It was the eve of the Winter Solstice, and every creature celebrated by taking it easy and staying inside with friends and family. Well, almost every creature...
Sonic sat up abruptly, awakened from a light nap on the couch in the main room of the hollow stump he and Sally called home. Ears straining, he listened. There it was again.

King Maximillian Acorn, due to his failing health, had abdicated the throne to his more than capable daughter, Princess Sally. She, along with the other original Freedom Fighters, still lived in the now famous Knothole Village.
