Chapter 7 Chapter 9
The months and seasons flew by, and soon I had been living in Mineral Village for a year. I had upgraded my chicken, my house twice, and my cattle barn. I had two sheep, three cows, and ten chickens. I had 10,000 g. in my own little personal bank account. Not to mention that my relationship with Karen was getting more serious everyday.
It was my day off, so I was going to fish today at the beach! I arrived at the beach at 8:00 a.m. "Yeah! Another one!" I said. I had been catching fish all day long. So far I had 10 large fish, 3 medium sized fish, and 5 small fish. It was my lucky day, or so I thought.
At 3:00 p.m. the ferry arrived at the dock. It was carrying someone new to Mineral Village! The woman that stepped off had black hair, blue eyes, and was about my height. I knew her. Her name was Crystal, she was my ex-girlfriend. What is she doing here?! I stared at her in surprise as she walked to me. "Hi… Jack." she said. "What are you doing here?!" "What, not pleased to see your ex-fiancé?" Did I say ex-girlfriend, I meant ex-fiancé. She looked past me and saw something. I looked in the direction she was. I saw Karen walking down the steps. Shoot! She looked at me again with a sneer on her face. Suddenly, she leaned forward and kissed me... passionately. I ripped away from her. I stared at her in anger. I saw Karen staring at me and Crystal, she had an obvious look of hurt in her eyes. "How could you?!" she yelled. "Karen! It's not what you think!" it was too late, the damage had already been done. She quickly turned around, and ran away, crying as she ran. I glared at Crystal. "Why did you do that?!" I screamed. She just sneered and brushed past me, walking toward the Inn.
I ran toward the supermarket. When I got there the door was locked. I banged on the door. "Jeff, let me in! I need to talk to Karen." Jeff was at the counter. He looked at me with a look of pure anger. He started to walk toward the door. He didn't unlock it though. He instead locked the top lock, and pulled the shades down. "Jeff! Please, Jeff. Let me in!" it was no use. He wasn't going to let me in. I ran to Karen's window. I saw her crying on her bed. She saw me, and brought down her shade. "Karen! No! Karen, please!" no answer. "Please, Karen!" I sat down, and wept.
