Prologue

"Are you SERIOUS!" I screamed at the beautiful woman in front of me.

"Yep!" she said cheerfully. "You can't go home yet!" She flipped her blue hair over her shoulder.

"But I did what you said! I rung all the bells!"

The woman twirled around for a second, momentarily distracted by a butterfly. Actually, there were a lot of butterfly flitting around. We were at the Goddess Pond, and it was night, maybe nine o'clock. The small pool of glitter water formed a semi-circle around the Goddess Tree. And in front of the that tree was the Harvest Goddess herself.

I thought the Harvest Goddess was calmer than this! I thought angrily.

"Yeah...but that only took you two seasons to do!" The Harvest Goddess frowned as she resumes our conversation. "And I had to act all serious! Aren't I much better this way?" she said as she twirled around happily.

"You're much more annoying, for that I'm sure."I grumbled quietly.

"So," she said. "I realized that something was terribly wrong!" the Harvest Goddess came close to my face. "You did exactly what I told you to do, with no trouble, and you didn't fall in love!"

I paused. "And what's so wrong with that?"

She groans as she steps back. "Because, no one ever does that! Your cousin, Akari was sent to Waffle Island by moi, and it took her five years to finish her quest, and she got married on her second year there! And to the mayor's son!"

"Oh, I know. She takes him with her whenever she visits me. He's a snob."

"That's beside the point!" the Harvest Goddess screamed. "What I'm trying to say is that you shouldn't have been that fast to complete the quest! And you should have gotten a crush or something!"

"I never really thought about having a crush. I focused on my quest. I don't think anyone even knew I had moved there."

I thought for a minute. "Well, I'm sure people saw me, but I didn't talk to anyone. All my seeds and animals I brought from my dad's farm back home, so human communication was unnecessary."

"But what about the Purple Bell quest? How'd you complete that?"

I shruged. "I sent letters to the adults in town. It wasn't really hard."

The Harvest Goddess glared at me. "Well that's why you can't go home! You weren't any fun!"

She smiled devilishly. "So that's why..." She twirled a lock of my hair in her fingers.

"You have to get all the bachelors on the island to fall in love with you!"

I jumped backwards. "What?" I shouted. "I've never been able catchanyone's eye, let alone a bunch of guys!"

"That's why it will so much fun to watch!" the Harvest Goddess said.

"Well, what if I don't want to do that?" I shouted.

"Then..." she said as she floated back over to her tree. "You'll be stuck there forever!"

I crumpled to the ground, filled with shock. "Are...are you serious?"

She sighed with boredom. "You already said that. And I already said that yes, I am serious! But don't worry. I'll provide you with money, a house, livestock, and seeds, but my sprites will do the work for you. So you can mainly focus on the boys!" the Harvest Goddess winked and started to twirl slowly, fading slightly.

"See you later!" she said. She started to sparkle as she began to disappear even more. "Don't worry, I'll send Finn to help you out!"

"Wait, where are you going?" I screamed. Suddenly, my vision darkened, and I lost consciousness.

And that's how my quest to get all the bachelors on Castanet Island to fall

in love with me began.
