A World That Defies Time! 



"Sonic, where are you going now?" 

Sonic the Hedgehog looked over his shoulder at Princess Sally, 
the young hedgehog who was racing hot on his heels. 

"To Never Lake," he called back. 

"Why Never Lake?" 

Sonic slowed down a little so he could explain. "Ever heard of 
the Little Planet?" 

"Isn't that the tiny world that orbits around Mobius?" Princess Sally 
asked. "The one with the special stones that alter time and change 
everything around them? I heard that the planet's full of places 
that are completely ignored by the passage of time!" 

"Yeah. On the last month of every year, the Little Planet appears 
over Never Lake. It's that time now, and I'm going to check it out. 

I bet space travel will be exciting!" 

"With all those Time Stones, I bet you'll try to outrun time itself!" 
Princess Sally sighed in adoration. 

Sonic didn't reply. He just smiled, eyes gleaming. 

When they arrived at Never Lake, the Little Planet was there 

as expected. But something was wrong. Where there should 

have been tall trees and bright flowers, there was nothing but 

dry sand and jagged rocks. The Little Planet was tethered to a 

rock with a huge chain, and its surface was covered with twisted, 

gleaming metal. 

"What happened?" Princess Sally wondered. 


Before Sonic could reply, something whooshed over them. 
Princess Sally shrieked as she was snatched up, and she and her 

"What the—PRINCESS SALLY!" 

It didn't take long for Sonic to realize what had happened. 



Indeed it was! Upon discovering the location of the Little Planet, 
the evil Dr. Robotnik and his robot cronies had immediately set 
about converting it to a giant fortress. When Robotnik saw Sonic 
approaching, he had dispatched his prize creation, the Metal 
Sonic, to grab Princess Sally and lure his arch enemy into danger. 
"How convenient!" Robotnik crowed, bouncing about like a 
malicious rubber ball. "This time my scientific expertise will crush 
you! Once all the Time Stones are in my hands, I'll be able to 
manipulate time and conquer the world! HO, HO, HO, HO!" 
Sonic stood on a rock and thought. Robotnik had control of the 

Little Planet. He had Princess Sally, and soon he would have 

the Time Stones ... but not if Sonic got to them first! 

His adventure on the Little Planet was going to be more exciting 

and dangerous than he'd planned. It was time to get a move on!
