Kai's 4th Heart Event
As I must send the Cute cartridge back now, I am trying to finish off all the events in Cute as quickly as possible in my test game... It requires that I play a game that is contrary to my careful habits. I sold off most of my animals in order to be able to move quickly through the seasons... In a few days, happily, I will have a permanent cartridge on which to lavish all my time and attention (after Island of Happiness, that is...)
It is an odd experience to be courting Kai both in Harvest Moon Boy & Girl and in HM Cute DS simultaneously. I have to say that his Fourth and Final Heart Event in HM Cute DS is extremely sweet...
The event begins at the Inn where he and Ruby are discussing the legends of the Harvest Goddess. I must force myself to remember that most of the villagers both in Mineral Town and Forget-Me-Not Valley do not KNOW the Harvest Goddess, have never seen her and do not even know whether she truly exists or not. Many do not SEE the Harvest Sprites... It is not a 'magical' world. It is a world like ours, in which only a few chosen are given the opportunity to interact with magical creatures.
Kai suggests suddenly that you and he should walk to the Goddess Spring to investigate. While there, he suggests that you make a wish. Here you have a choice:
love or money basically. You can wish that Kai will like you more or that your farm will be prosperous.
If you choose the former, Kai will confess that he made the same wish. You both will display a big red heart...
