Luke: AW! WHY DOES HE GET TO DO IT?
Kurt: Cause I didn't do it last time.
Kurt: Floopyrocks does not own Harvest Moon.
Luke: This idea is orignal and Floopy thought of it first.
Chapter 1: A Letter of Promises
I bolted through the door of the blacksmiths= and ran into the kitchen. Letting my backpack slide off of my shoulders, it fell to ground with a loud WHUMP! I cringed at the loud noise, knowing the lecture I had heard countless times would follow. Behind a closed door I could hear the annoyed footsteps coming toward me and the old floorboard under them creaking in protest.
The door in the back of the kitchen that led to the bedrooms flew open and there stood my Grandfather Ramsey.
"Boy! How many times have I told you not to do that? You woke me up! And in the middle of a good dream too..." he scolded.
I rubbed the back of my head sheepishly. "Sorry Grandad."
Ramsey ran his fingers through his stringy gray hair and sighed. He walked over to the kitchen and started getting the things out that he would need to make coffee. "Well now that I'm up you can help me. But first boy, tell me what's for homework?" He sat down at the table while waiting for the coffee to brew.
"I don't have any."
"Don't have any? How did you get out of your homework again? I'm tellin you boy, you wouldn't last a minute during the time I was a kid. Ain't no way for you to get out of your homework then!"
"I already did it in cla-" My mouth froze on the last part of the last word. I couldn't form the "s" I had never told a lie, but this time I had to. I repeated the sentence again. "I already did it in class." A cold lump started to form in my chest; I didn't like it.
Ramsey narrowed his eyes at me. "Are you lying to me boy?"
I gulped nervously and shook my head.
"Then show me the homework," he said in a voice that was almost a whisper.
I was nervous now. I just hoped he wouldn't see the sweat starting to pour down my back. "Uh..." I nervously mumbled. "I-I-I..."
Suddenly Ramsey burst out laughing. I started laughing weakly along with him to go along with it. "Hahaha! I was pullin' your leg, boy!" His laughter died down as he got up to go pour his coffee. "Anyways I need you help with an order." He went on explaining that he needed me to go find some bronze ore, then go get it refind by Mira at the Accessory Shop. We were going to use the bronze we got from Mira for Luke's birthday present and we HAD to finish it by tomorrow. His birthday party was tomorrow.
"So after you do that then you can-" Ramsey was interrupted by the chime of the doorbell. He got up to go answer it. He came back a minute later with the mail in his hands. He shifted through it and tossed a letter towards me. "This is for you, boy."
I looked at the return address of the letter and smiled when I noticed that it was the address of my older brother. In pure excitement, I tore open the letter and read it:
It is with great pleasure that we announce to you that you will be getting a neice soon! My wife will be having a baby in about a couple of weeks. We will send you another letter containing the name of the child and other information.
Your Big Brother.
I... was getting a... neice?
So that's it for now! What do you think? :D hope you liked it! :D
