The next morning, Alwin roused early. It was just habit to wake up as the sun rose. Stretching, he went to the kitchen. Ten was used to waking up to a hearty breakfast whenever Al showed up, and he wasn't about to disappoint his friend.

He drank some of the eggnog he was holding, not feeling like being sociable with Knuckles, and starting to realize that he felt that about everyone who was going to be here. Why did he even come?
