A/N: I just wanted to say that thanks to anyone who had followed and liked this story. And to answer someone's review, funny thing. Shan's kinda based off myself. I'm actually handicapped IRL. I just thought it'd be interesting haha.
Shan's coming in the next chapter, I promise.
As always enjoy the chapter and reviews are always welcome. ^^'
After Shan had called me last night, I woke up very early this morning, so that I could get some work done. I needed to talk to Veronica as soon as possible. My best friend from the city is actually moving here. She's actually moving here. I can't believe it. I've been trying to get her to move here for a while now. Even got permission from Veronica, Corona and Gunther to build a house for her on my farm where Eda's old house use to be. I've been using it as Storage though. Probably should fix that later today or something. Yeah, I'm crazy. I just wanted my friend to feel comfortable alright? I knew that the inn wasn't going to work out for her since she's in a wheelchair. The whole town could use some wheelchair ramps too. And that's why I need to see Veronica right now. Who knows when Shan will actually be here. She didn't say. I walked into the Guild just in time to see Veronica opening the Guild for business.
"Ah, good morning Annie," she gave me a smile. "How can I help you today?"
"Remember when I told you about my friend from the city?"
"Ah, yes. The one who you built a house for if she decides to move here. What about her?" I could see that she just got interested in what I'm about to say, or in this case, ask.
"Well, she called me last night and told me that she's moving in." I explained. "I was wondering, is it possible to build a few ramps around the town? I have some building materials that I can use." I literally have a shed of stuff that could be useful. I hate throwing things away. Before Veronica had a chance to respond, Raeger walked in, clearly over hearing our conversation.
"Ah, good morning Raeger, is there anything that you need?"
"I did have a question, but what's this about wheelchair ramps? What's going on?"
"My friend Shan's moving to Oak Tree Town." I explained as I turned to face him. He looked shocked. "Raeger?" I waved my hand in his face.
"My friend Shan's moving to Oak Tree Town." I paused. Did Annie just say what I think she just said? Okay, calm down. It can't be the same girl right? There's got to be another girl named Shan who's handicapped somewhere in the world. There's has to be. What are the odds that it's the same girl?
"Raeger!" Annie had brought me back to reality.
"Huh?" I turned to face her. "Annie. your friend. Does she have dark brown hair and brown eyes? And lives in the city?" I asked, hoping that it wasn't. I don't know what to do if it really was her. It's been over 24 hours and I can't stop thinking about her.
Annie looked at me curiously. "Yes? But how did you-"
"I kinda...ran to her yesterday when I was in the city. Well, more like she ran into me." I smiled innocently. "I was picking up something for Elise when she bumped into me." She probably wasn't paying attention where she was going.
"Ah," She giggled. "That explains it."
"Explains what?" I inquired.
"When she called me she might've said something about running into a guy who was carrying rice and who didn't give her his name." She punched my arm.
"To be fair, she didn't give me her name either. Some guy had told me." Again, I smiled innocently.
"Must be Mark."
"Her ex-boyfriend. He broke up with her yesterday."
So, she's single now huh? I smirked.
"Nice try." She punched my arm again. "She's not ready to start dating again. Even though she said that the guy was very good looking." She started laughing.
"Annie." Veronica got the farmer's attention again. I was lost in thought I wasn't paying attention to the conversation. Even though Annie said that her friend isn't interested in dating right now, that doesn't stop me from thinking about her. There might be a chance to woo her in the future. Just gotta take it slow first. Really get to know her as a person.
"Now Raeger what was your question?" Both Annie and Veronica looked at me. What was my question again? I shrugged.
"Nothing, never mind." I lied. I honestly don't remember.
Annie grabbed my arm. "Let's go, Romeo. You can help me clean out my guest house. You have time before opening your restaurant."
