This is the start of Round Four of our Community Town. We are focusing on the neighborhood of Newcrest. You can learn more about the game, and submit your own character, here.
Megera Bubbettes, our neighborhood gardener, has almost perfected her gardening skill. However, there are still plants in the world that she has yet to raise. It was time to start hunting down those seeds.
Selling her practically perfect flowers, herbs and produce, allowed her to take a camping vacation to Granite Falls. She purchased all the supplies she needed- tent, cooler, camping chair, etc… and headed out for a 4 day vacation.
She met Ranger Rez Reis on her first day, and they immediately had a connection. He was outgoing and friendly, and loved the outdoors- just like her!
During her first couple days, she explored the surrounding area and did some collecting. She continued to run into Rez, and their friendship continued to grow.
A person in a bear costume also showed up often. The bear was mean and harassed her, and she wanted it to go away.
She met some people while at the campsite. Campfires were held every evening and she participated. Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to capture any photos! She enjoyed the campfires and met lots of interesting people, but no one she connected with as much as Rez.
I can’t believe I didn’t capture any photos, but she also discovered that Braxton was there…presumably staying in a cabin, and he had a lady friend with him. Megera knew that Braxton had a non-committal streak in him, but she had hoped that she’d “be the one” to change that, you know?
Megera decided it was time to go hiking in the forest. She consulted the map, packed some food, and headed out.
While she was wondering out in the woods, she ran into Rez again. Inspired by her disappointment in Braxton, Megera made a move on Rez. He wasn’t into it, and gave her the familiar “just friends” conversation.
Feeling a bit defeated, she decided to spend a few hours fishing in the gorgeous clear mountain lake. The fish would make a delicious dinner, and any leftover could be used for fertilizer for her garden back home.
Unfortunately, only a couple hours into the fishing, Rez showed up to chat with a fellow angler. Megera left to explore the woods more.
She hiked for quite a ways when she noticed something hidden in the trees…
Whoa! What’s that?! Megera’s surprise reflected my own! We decided to explore together.
After navigating through the passage, and making several choices on which direction to go (through the spiderweb? or turn back?). Megera eventually made it to the end of the cave….
It ended in a gorgeous scene…
…her arrival felt like it should have been accompanied by very dramatic music….like from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast…”I want adventure in the great wide, somewhere….I want it more than I can bare…”
….unblemished beauty. No fellow campers, no Ranger Rez, no stupid fake bears…
….wait…someone lives out here?!?!?….
