Heart Events


Ran and her dad Dudley are greeting people as they come in the front door of the inn. Ran introduces herself and her dad, Dudley. Since she wants to encourage you to visit their inn, Ran says she'd like to do something for you. Dudley thinks a free meal sounds like a good idea.

Choice 1: Free food is the best food! (+3000 LP, +20 FP with Dudley)

Dudley says you'll have a very delicious feast! After a bit Dudley returns with an Omelet Rice. It really is amazing! Dudley invites you to eat more food.

After you've had your fill, Ran comments on how much food you were able to eat. Dudley thanks you for allowing him to cook for you, and Ran asks that you come visit their inn again. Dudley suggests that you come in and say "hi" to Ran anytime.

Choice 2: Sorry, but I'll pass. (-2000 LP, -10 FP with Dudley)

Ran wonders what kind of person would turn down a free meal. They invite you to visit again, but next time the meal won't be free.

Black Heart Event

Ran is upstairs in the inn, happily singing to herself. You startle her as you walk into the room. Ran scolds you for sneaking up on her, but she's not really angry at you. She thought you might have been a thief!

Ran realizes that you had heard her singing in the room. She explains that she really enjoys cleaning; so much so that she tends to sing while she cleans. Having a clean room makes her feel better. Do you like cleaning?

Choice 1: Cleanliness is next to Goddess-liness! (+3000 LP)

She's glad to hear you like to clean too! Her dad hates to clean. She has to clean the whole inn herself, and wishes that her dad would pick up after himself. He isn't a child anymore! Well, she has to get back to cleaning!

Choice 2: Filth is my friend. (-2000 LP)

Ran admits that there's a lot of people who don't like cleaning. Even her dad hates it! You may just need to learn an easy way to clean.

Purple Heart Event

Dudley notices that Ran is looking a little tired. Ran tells him she's fine, but she's not fooling Dudley! Both of you run to Ran's side. Oh no! Ran has a pretty bad tummy ache!

Choice 1: Quick, to the Clinic! (+3000 LP, +20 FP with Doctor, Dudley, and Elly)

Yes, Dudley agrees that Ran appears to be sick. Let's quickly get her to the clinic!

Choice 2: I... I don't know. (No change in LP/FP)

Your lack of conviction annoys Dudley. He composes himself and remembers that he can call on a doctor for help.

You and Dudley take Ran to the clinic. After some time she, Doctor, and Elli come out of the examination room. Dudley asks if Ran is feeling better, and then ask Doctor if she's truly okay. Doctor tells him that it was simply that she had eaten too much. Dudley asks Ran what she had eaten that might of upset her stomach. Sheepishly, Ran starts listing off all the food that she had eaten recently: Vegetable Stir Fry, Omelet Rice, Okonomiyaki, and then Tempura Udon. Oh yea, then some Cheesecake, Apple Pie, Cake, Ice Cream, and she thinks maybe Pumpkin Pudding too? Well no wonder...

Dudley scolds her for eating so much. Ran tells him she can't help it; she wants to eat! Doctor tells them both to calm down and just be glad that Ran isn't sick anymore. Dudley feels bad about his overreaction. Elli reminds Ran to not overeat in the future.

Back in her room, Ran is glad that Dudley has calmed down. She's genuinely sorry for making a mess of things.

(If you had selected Choice 1, Ran will thank you for taking her to the clinic. As a reward she will give you her Ran's Music Box. It doesn't make any sound, but it is one of her most precious treasures. This item can be placed on the trophy shelf in your farmhouse.)

Blue Heart Event

Dudley is glad to see you, as he's something to discuss with you. He goes on to explain that he's been struggling lately. He's had to raise Ran by himself since her mom died, though he thinks he's done pretty well so far. Dudley would be really happy if he could find a partner for his daughter. Dudley's concern is that Ran has never had a love interest, but recently she's been talking a lot about you, so he wants to hear it for himself. What do you think of Ran?

Choice 1: She's found her way "inn" to my heart. (+20 FP with Dudley)

Hearing that really warms Dudley's heart! Ran finally notices that you're here and comes up to greet you. Dudley says the two of you were just chatting, but when Ran asks him what about, he tries to play innocent. She walks up closer and Dudley again asks what you think of his daughter. Ran becomes embarrassed and tells him that it doesn't matter, but Dudley lashes back that it does matter because she's his only daughter.

Choice 2: Uh... We're friends? (-10 FP with Dudley)

Dudley is disappointed and wonders if it is something that he said. Maybe you aren't compatible.

Ran comes down from upstairs, as she's finished with her cleaning. Ran catches that maybe something was going on between the two of you, but Dudley tries to play innocent. Ran knows better though, and even notices that you're acting weird too. Dudley states that he wasn't scheming anything. He can't pretend that she's not precious to him!

Ran storms off in anger and heads back upstars, and you chase after her. After you catch up to her, Ran apologizes. She didn't hear the conversation between the two of you, but since it invovled her father, Ran can assume what it was about. Ran explains that long ago a customer had come to the inn, and Dudley had then asked the customer how they felt about her. The situation was so awkward that the customer never came back.

Choice 1A: Talk about tactless. (-2000 LP)

Ran laughs and admits that is true. She liked to chat with the customers because their stories were always so interesting. Ran wishes that her dad would let her handle stuff like that. She'll return to work once she's cooled down.

Choice 1B: He's a good father. (+3000 LP)

Yes, his outpouring of affection is very motherly, but sometimes he is a bit overboard; kind of like today! Anyhow, Ran wants to get back to helping with the inn work in a little bit.

Downstairs, you let Dudley know that everything is a-okay now. Despite his actions, Dudley is glad that she has a friend like you.

Yellow Heart Event

Ran is wondering what she should do when you walk into the inn. You can tell that something is bothering her. Ran explains they had a guest wearing their favorite outfit and it got really dirty. Ran attempted to clean the clothes but she couldn't remove a stain on the guest's white shirt. Ran doesn't want the guest to leave disappointed, as it's not going to get clean just by rubbing it with soap.

Choice 1: Let's find a stronger detergent. (-2000 LP)

True, a better detergent could take out out any stains! Maybe the general store sells such a product.

The two of you head to Jeff's store. He says that he has ordinary soap, but he doesn't have the detergent that Ran is looking for. Ran tells him not to worry about it, she was just checking to see if he had anything. Jeff says there might be someone else who is more familiar with what she needs. Ran replies that she'll see if she can find someone and thanks you for accompanying her.

Choice 2: Let's do something to cheer you up. (+3000 LP)

Yea you're probably right, as she's pretty worked up over this issue. Will you join her? The two of you head out of the inn.

The two of you chat outside, which helps Ran feel better. In fact, she's bound to find a solution to her problem.

Yu and Mei walk close by and you overhear the kids complain how dirty their clothes became from playing. Yu gets a clever idea to let the mud dry so they can simply brush it off, then wipe it down with a damp cloth. Grandma Ellen taught him this trick! The two of you quickly head over to Ellen's house for her wise advice.

Ellen does know of a good method to removing a stubborn stain. Ran listens to Ellen's instructions and is eager to give it a try. Ran also thanks you too; if you hadn't taken her out for a break she wouldn't of ended up here at Ellen's house with a solution! Ellen is envious of how close the two of you are.

Orange Heart Event

You walk into the library and are greeted by Mary. She tells you that Ran is here too. She comes to the library to read. She also talks to Mary about books! She's up on the second floor.

Ran is upstairs reading book off the bookshelf. She finishes the book she was reading and starts searching for her next book when she notices you're there. She was lost in the book and didn't hear if you had said anything to her. Ran asks if you have come to check out the books. You make her happy to know that you just came her to see her. You must have been talking to Mary about her recent visits to the library. Remember the the issue with the customer's dirty clothes? She was able to remove the stain and the guest was absolutely thrilled.

Since then, Ran has been learning other ways to make customers happy. She's recently come up with hot spots in town that she can promote to her customers. As she started researching the town, she began to realize that she knows less about the town than she thought she did! Ran wants to learn more, so she's started her study at the library.

Choice 1: Glad you "Ran" with this idea! (+3000 LP)

Your encouragement makes her happy! Previously she would just try and mimic the work that her dad did, but that might not be enough. She watched you work hard on your farm and wondered what more she could do to help at the inn. Ran thanks you for motivating her!

Some of the books are difficult and sometimes she becomes confused. Maybe you have some recommendations? The two of you look through the shelves and find a book on local plants. Ran starts her studying about the edible and dangerous plants in the area.

Choice 2: Wow, so you CAN read! (-2000 LP)

Ran says your comment is rather harsh, but she won't be discouraged. She's motivated to do her best! She won't fail!

This event ends at 3:00 pm. The love event background music is missing during this event.
