Sonic laughed heartily. A friendly face is nice to see. “Hiya, Big! Sure has been a while. Catch any good fish lately?”
[ Yes, lots of fish! Big has many good fish. Right, Froggy? ]
Sonic smiled genuinely, some of the weight lifting off his shoulders. “Froggy’s still with you, that’s good. Keep a good eye on him so he doesn’t get away, you hear?” He gave him a friendly pat on his broad back.
