"Where are we?"
A young female hedgehog, named Kirana, looks around curiously as she was walking beside a young male hedgehog, named Sonic. Sonic looks around before putting a finger on his chin and looking around the somewhat futuristic surroundings.
"I'm not sure, honey. I've never seen anywhere like this before..."
Kirana stays close to Sonic before gasping a bit and looking down next to her. There next to her, was a little blue-furred hedgehoglet, named Samuel. He looks up at Kira with his ears lowered and his hand wrapped around hers.
"Mama? Me scwared..."
The young female lowers her ears before squatting down beside him. She smiles softly and gently runs a hand along his muzzle.
"Don't be afraid, sweetie... we'll find our way back home. Okay?"
Samuel smiles a bit and nods his head before wrapping his arms around Kira's neck. Kira gives him a hug before kissing his nose and standing back up.
Sonic looks back at Kira and Samuel and smiles as he notices the little hedgehoglet feeling a bit calmer. He walks over to them and scoops Samuel up into his arms, carrying him. Samuel giggles a bit as Sonic lifts him up and snuggles into Sonic's chest as he carries him.
The young male continues to observe the surroundings, noticing floating cars in the air, a bright blue-hued sky and many tall metallic buildings.
"This place doesn't look so bad... kinda looks like a futuristic utopia."
Kira nods and smiles as she looks around, curiously. Samuel opens his eyes in amazement as he notices the floating cars in the air. He points to the sky.
"Thwis pwace wooks way pwast cwool! Wook papa! Thwere's a wot of cwars!"
Sonic chuckles as he ruffles Samuel's hair with his hand.
"There sure are, little buddy."
Kira smiles as she walks beside Sonic and notices a few citizens walking around in front of them.
"This is such a beautiful place... though I'm not sure how we got here."
"It's possible that the Chaos Control I created might have sent us here. But why?"
Sonic and Kira both begin to ponder until they soon hear the sound of thunder. Samuel squeaks in surprise and soon nuzzles his head into Sonic's chest as rain begins to fall from the sky. Sonic holds Samuel close and takes Kira's hand as he begins to run through the street that they were in.
"Where the heck did this rain come from? This place seems to have really weird weather!"
"Don't worry, I'll find us a shelter."
After a few minutes of running, Sonic soon comes across the entrance of an apartment. He runs inside and shakes the rain from his fur before turning to Kira.
"Are you alright, honey?"
Kira nods as she shakes the rain off her fur and begins to shiver a bit. Sonic notices Kira shiver and walks over to her before wrapping his arm around her, attempting to warm her up.
"You okay, Sammy?"
Samuel nods a bit but soon starts to shiver too. Sonic holds Samuel closer to his chest as he walks through the hallway of the building. He looks around before feeling his ear twitch. He turns around a notices a small family walking down the stairs.
The family consisted of a young adult male with long striped ears, green eyes and wearing a one piece suit, mostly orange and blue in colour. Stood next to the male was a young female around the same age. She also had long striped ears but her eyes were a bluey-brown hue. The young female was holding a smaller long-eared creature with a little tuft of hair, orange in colour.
The small family walk over towards Sonic, Kira and Samuel and the young female creature smiles a bit as she holds the smaller creature close to her.
"Hi there! You must be new here and it looks like the weather certainly got to you!"
Kira giggles a bit as she brushes off a bit of rain off her shirt.
"Indeed, it's normally quite sunny from where we come from!"
The young female creature giggles also.
"I see... oh the name's Xennah by the way."
Kira smiles as she shakes hands with Xennah before motioning her hand towards Sonic and Samuel.
"Nice to meet you, my name is Kira and this is my husband Sonic and our little boy, Samuel."
Xennah smiles and makes a small cooing noise as she notices Samuel shyly hiding his face into Sonic's chest.
"Awww, what a little cutie-pie!"
Sonic chuckles as he kisses Samuel's head and hands him over to Kira.
"He is quite shy..."
Samuel soon slowly emerges his face and curiously looks to the small long-eared creature in Xennah's arms. Xennah smiles as the little creature reaches his hand out to Samuel.
"This is Nyx, me and my husband's little boy."
Kira coos also.
"Aww... I must admit that we haven't seen creatures quite like you before. What breed are you, if you don't mind me asking?"
Xennah smiles as she gently rubs Nyx's ear with her fingers.
"It's fine to ask. We are lombaxes, we're quite a rare species here. But when I met my sweetheart, Ratchet, I knew that we would someday have a beautiful baby together."
Kira smiles as Samuel gently holds Nyx's hand.
"What species are you if you don't mind me asking too?"
"We are mobians, more specifically, hedgehogs. There are quite a lot of us where we come from so we are quite the opposite to you."
The young male lombax smiles as him and Sonic watch the females and babies bonding. The lombax soon turns to Sonic and holds out a hand.
"Doh, where are my manners? The name's Ratchet."
Sonic smiles and shakes his hand.
"Sonic, nice to meet you."
The two males move their hands away and smile as they both walk over to the females and babies.
Samuel curiously touches Nyx's ear with his hand and watches as Nyx touches a bit of his hair. Sonic and Ratchet chuckle as the boys become curious with each other.
"I think those two are bonding quite well already..."
Kira and Xennah giggle as the babies soon smile at one another and cling onto them. Samuel soon sneezes and begins to shiver from being wet and cold.
Ratchet lowers his ears as he feels Samuel's head.
"No sign of a temperature but we'll need to get this little guy dried up along with Sonic and Kira."
"We don't mean to be a bother--"
"Please, it's no bother at all. Come to our room and we can prepare some towels and clothes for you all."
Sonic and Kira smile to each other before following Ratchet and Xennah upstairs.
Once everyone was upstairs, Ratchet unlocks the apartment and leads Sonic and Kira inside. Sonic and Kira look around in amazement as the apartment was filled with all kinds of futuristic gadgets.
"This apartment, it's amazing!"
"Thank you, though it is relatively normal apartment."
Samuel looks around and smiles widely. Kira places him down and takes off his shoes before watching him begin to toddle off towards the couch. Xennah soon giggles as she puts Nyx down, watching him toddle towards Samuel.
