A vast desert bordered the outskirts of the forest, and the wind stirred up great gusts of sand. The environment of the forest Eunice and her friends called home had begun to gradually turn to desert as well. The problem had actually been growing for some time, but they had only recently discovered it. They seemed resigned to the fact that their home would one day be completely destroyed. Eunice, however, felt differently. A migratory bird had once told her of a natural utopian sanctuary. Her companions responded well to this idea, and accompanied Eunice in her search for the sanctuary.
Eunice is a Greek name meaning "happy" and "victorious".
