My Crazy Mineral Town Life
I'm writing a new story, yes indeed! The plot bunnies are everywhere, but nothing seemed fitting to me, until I read this thing on cakedoughnutschickenboob's profile. It was one of those 'copy and paste' things, and it talked about what crazy meant. I kind of took that and changed it, and after a couple of days, I got this as the result! So I hope that you all like my story, and I know I should be working on my other stories, but whatever! Ok, thank you peoples!
I would like to dedicate this story to cakedoughnutschickenboob for giving me most of the idea (the funny parts), The Scarlet Sky for giving me another part of the idea (the dramatic parts), HmGirly12 because she's awesome (I used her name as the main character), and my real life friend Isha because I feel like it, and myself for actually writing the story. That is all.
No I don't own Harvest Moon, but I do own Chris (who is Hannah's older brother) and this plot... so yeah!
Hannah really doesn't want to go to Mineral Town (though earlier she said she did), but goes anyways, and (to say the least) finds herself in several embarresing mishaps. But after having quite a few strange dreams and a small gift from a good friend, could she uncover a past that... she didn't even know exsisted?
The voyage to Mineral Town
"NO! YOU CAN'T MAKE ME GO! I WON'T ALLOW IT!" A young blonde haired girl screeched as her older brother attempted to pry her from the poll she was tightly clinging to.
"Hannah! Come on! Stop acting like you're two and get on that boat!" The boy told her.
"BUT I DON'T WANNA GO TO SOME CREEPY TOWN THAT HAS THE POPULATION OF A CLASSROOM!" The girl cried, clinging even tighter to the poll.
"Oh. My. Goddess. YOU ARE THE MOST STUBBORN GIRL I HAVE EVER MET!" The boy yelled. Finally, Hannah released her grip.
"Thank you." He said, running a hand through his chocolate brown hair, clearly exhausted.
"Chris, why do I have to go?" Hannah asked, pouting.
"Because you said that life was dull in the city and you wanted to try out farming." Chris replied. There was an awkward silence.
"You know, I think that lobsters are really funny." The girl in front of him said thoughtfully. Chris shook his head.
"Hannah… that has got to be the most random thing you have ever said, and there are a lot of random things." He told her. She just smiled.
"Ok, fine, I will go to this… Mineral Town place, but if I don't like it after a year, I'm coming back, ok?" She told him, suddenly very serious.
"Fine, you can come home if it's that bad, which I highly doubt it will be." Chris told her. Hannah then hopped on the boat with her stuff, and headed of to her destination, Mineral Town, calling 'I love you' and 'call you every single day' and 'see ya next year because Mineral Town will suck' to her big brother. Soon, she couldn't see the docks anymore. She turned around, and flipped open the cell-phone she had so well hidden from Chris.
"I bet that they don't even know what a phone is. Dear goddess, how will I live without my precious phone?" Hannah thought to herself. She frowned, noticing that there was no signal. She held up the cell-phone, hoping to get a better reception. Instead, a big white seagull decided that he liked the shiny phone in her hand, and picked it up, carrying it off towards the sea.
"HEY THAT'S MY CELL-PHONE GIVE IT BACK YOU STUPID SEAGULL!" Hannah screeched. She attempted to climb onto the bars and jump after the seagull (she wasn't exactly the smartest girl in the world), but two strong arms wrapped around her waist before she could do anything.
"NO! WHOEVER YOU ARE LET GO OF ME THAT SEAGULL HAS MY ONLY CONNECTION TO THE REAL WORLD! NOOOOO!" She screamed kicking her legs and flinging her arms around in random directions, but the person didn't budge. Soon the seagull was out of sight, and the person put her down. Hannah groaned, thinking that she was lost to this stupid Mineral Town place forever now that her precious cell-phone was no more. She turned around to see who had stopped her from getting her phone. In front of her stood a tall, tanned man wearing a purple bandana on his head.
"Well, hello tall, dark, and handsome, and I mean that quite literally." Hannah said, taking in every detail of the man in front of her. The boy laughed.
"Hello, short, fair and beautiful, what's your name?" He asked her.
"Hannah Montez, you?"
"Kai Raine, nice to meet you." He shook the girls' hand.
"Hi Kai, hey cool, that rhymed." Hannah laughed.
"So, anyways Hannah, where are you headed?" Kai asked. Hannah saw traces of curiosity in his merry black eyes.
"I'm off to some town with the population of about thirty people called… uh… called… crap! I had it, and just like that, it's gone." Hannah said, quite frustrated.
"How about you, where are you going?"
"Flowerbud Village. I go there every spring." Kai explained.
"Ah, a traveler, no doubt." Hannah said, somewhat amused. She crossed her arms over her chest.
"Yeah, I go to random places every fall and winter, but every spring and summer, I go to the same place." There was a short silence.
"I really like oranges, but I'm allergic to them, isn't that strange?" Hannah asked, quite serious about her question. Kai raised an eyebrow.
"What does that have to do with the current conversation?" He asked her.
"Nothing, I just felt like saying that." Hannah replied.
"… Oookay then." Kai said. The conversation continued on in a similar manor, Hannah blurting out the first thing that came to her mind, and Kai silently thinking that this girl was slightly insane. They learned a fair bit about each other. They learned that they both liked swimming, cooking, and flirting, and were fairly good at all three. They talked about the many places Kai had been, and the many embarrassing moments Hannah had been through. Finally, after about four hours of just talking, the S.S Karolina came to a sudden stop. Both friends looked up from what they were talking about (which was whether or not the chicken or the egg came first), and noticed that they were at Flowerbud Village.
"Oh, well, this is my stop." Kai told Hannah sadly. He was very unhappy that he was probably never gonna see this amazing girl ever again.
"Oh… Ok… but, hey, I have an idea! This place is called Flowerbud Village right?" Hannah asked. Kai nodded, so Hannah continued.
"Were will you stay?"
"A place called The Perch Inn." Kai responded.
"Ok, I will write you a letter to Perch Inn, Flowerbud Village, kay? Then you can respond to the letter, and that's how we will keep in touch." Hannah explained. Kai looked at her thoughtfully.
"You still don't remember the place you are going to?" He asked, very amused.
"No, which is stupid seeing as how I'll spend at least a year there!" Hannah told him, a big grin on her face.
"Ok, well, bye then. Oh, hey, I was gonna give this to a different friend in Flowerbud, but I think I'll give it to you instead." Kai pulled from his pocket a small crimson box with a gold bow on top of it. Hannah took it, smiling.
"Thank you…" She breathed, trying to remember the last time a friend had given her a gift.
"Your welcome, but there's a catch. You can't open it until you get to where you're going." Kai told her, grinning.
"Aww, but I wanna see it now!" Hannah complained. Kai just gave her a big hug and told her to write as soon as she got to her new home. Soon Kai was on the docks, waving good-bye to his new friend. Hannah smiled and waved back, still holding the present in her hand. When she could no longer see Kai, Hannah walked into the sitting area, and sat down on a chair. She sat there for about fifteen minutes, when a deckhand walked by.
"Um, excuse me sir, but when are we going to be in Mineral Town?" Hannah asked, finally remembering the name.
"In about four hours." The man told her. Hannah groaned.
"Oh. My. Goddess. I got on this boat at six fricken o'clock! I mean, I could be at home right now watching T.V… but then again, I would have never met Kai…" Hannah thought to herself. She decided that Mineral Town wouldn't be so bad now that she had many things to look forward to, such as writing to Kai, and calling her brother.
"Who knows? This might actually be fun… Oooh, look at that pretty latte, I think I'll get one for myself!" Hannah thought, getting up and walking to get her latte.
