Heart Events

Heart 1


Iris has found a stray dog wandering near her house. As she wonders who the dog's owner is, the pooch runs up to greet you. It wants to play! You and Iris play with the dog for a while. Watching you interact with the doggo makes Iris happy. The two of you together are adorable! You must really like animals. You remind Iris that you're a farmer and explain to her the reason why you started managing grandpa's farm. Iris thinks for a moment and becomes inspired. She tells you that something has come up, so she must excuse herself for today. Iris enjoyed the time she spent chatting with you and hopes that she can speak with you again.

Heart 2


You find Iris and Georgio talking about something. Georgio asks you to wait a moment while they finish up, but then reveals the reason he is here is because his sweetie is a big fan of Iris' work. Her novels are phenomenal! Iris becomes modest, while still honored to hear Georgio's praise of her work. The least she can do is give him an autograph. Georgio thanks Iris for her autograph and looks forward to her next written work.

After Georgio leaves, Iris guesses you may have figured out what she does for a living. Iris tells you she was out looking for inspiration the day the two of you met. Listening to your farmer's tale motivated her to write a new story. She apologizes for not telling you before, but she finds that attitudes towards her change after others learn that she's a novelist. Iris wanted to get to know you better without you knowing about her being a popular storywriter.

She's glad to know you consider her one of your friends.

Heart 3


Though you've stopped by for a visit, Iris explains that she's a bit busy at the moment. You're more than welcome to wait while she wraps up her affairs. You select a book from the shelf and begin to read. You become so enthralled with the story that you don't notice Iris has been trying to get your attention! She doesn't mind though, as she enjoyed watching you read the book, fascinated by how easy it was for her to pick up on how much you were enjoying yourself. By the way, how did you like the book?

You suddenly realize that Iris was the author of the magnificent book you had just been reading. She explains that as an author, nothing is more gratifying than watching readers enjoy her work. Iris suggests that you borrow a few books from her collection.

Heart 4


You spot a strange man by Iris' house. The fellow explains that he's an Iris superfan and is simply following a rumor that she has been spotted in the area. You DO know who the beautiful, award-winning novelist is, don't you? From your reaction, the fanatic assumes you are there to stop him. He demands that you get out of his way.

You spot Iris walking home and run to intercept her. You take her behind a nearby tree to hide from the fanatic. Iris is surprised by your behavior, but understands once you explain the fervid fan looking for her. This happens more often than it should. Iris regrets showing herself at an awards ceremony a while ago, as now the fanatics know what she looks like. The overzealous fans would crowd around her house in Oak Tree Town, too! This didn't bother Iris all that much, but she was concerned for her little brother and his antique store. Iris didn't want to cause any more trouble for her brother, so she packed up and moved to Terracotta Oasis so if the fans do find her, the only person they would bother is herself. This is simply the price for fame, after all. There isn't anything she can do about it.

Off in the distance, the fanatic appears to have given up his hunt and leaves. Now that he's gone, Iris wants to head home.

Iris thanks you for your concern and for hiding her behind the tree. You're such a considerate person!

Heart 5


You spot Iris and start to greet her, but that same pesky fan from before gets to her first! She really does live around here! The fan takes out his camera, which makes Iris nervous. She tells him he is overstepping his boundaries, and despite his insistence, she becomes more adamant that he needs to stop. The fan becomes annoyed; it's just one picture!

You spot a random motorcycle laying off to the side that you... borrow... and ride it between Iris and the crazed fanatic. She hops on the back and escape with you to another location, where Iris says she is okay.

Iris reminds you to turn a blind eye to a lady's secrets, but you want her to open up more. She can rely on others rather than trying to solve all her problems on her own. Iris explains that since childhood, she's had to look after her little brother. Others would complement her on how "adult" she was do things for herself. Iris has had to look out for others her whole life and has felt, as a pillar of strength, that she's prohibited from showing weakness. She is expected to solve her problems alone. It's so second nature to her that she finds it difficult to depend on others.

You offer to help Iris practice relying on other people. Iris thanks you, but she doesn't want to place such a burden on you. Please don't misunderstand; it's not because she feels you're unreliable because of your younger age.

Ok, you have gotten through to her. From now on, Iris promises to lean on you instead of tackling everything herself. You offer to walk her home to ensure she's safe. As you leave, you don't see Iris look troubled as though she may have said the wrong thing.

Heart 6 (Confession)


Iris is a bit surprised that you would be so up-front with your feelings. She's not upset about it at all! Iris admits that she was very happy to hear that you wanted to help shoulder the burdens she carries, as it was the first time anyone has offered in that manner. There's no way she could deny such an earnest expression of love!

You are a unique person, and Iris would gladly be your girlfriend. Even though she initially considered you simply a younger friend, Iris is looking forward to seeing where this relationship goes. Perhaps she can get used to speaking her mind more often.

Heart 7


Iris is glad to see you've stopped by for a visit. This is a great opportunity to go out on an outing.

You head out to the bazaar to check some accessories. Iris looks outstanding wearing glasses! Eventually, the two of you visit the fountain. Iris tells you that she enjoyed playing dress-up. Maybe you'd like to go back to her place and try on some clothes she had bought as reference material for a novel she was working on? Of course, Iris won't force you, but let her know if you're interested. She then offers to make you some tea before you return home. It would be a shame if some tea spilled on your clothes and you had to change. Iris wouldn't do that though!

You walk Iris home. The two of you failed to notice the creepy Iris super-fan was watching your date from behind a building...

Heart 8


A letter has arrived for Iris. She explains it is a warning from her brother, Mistel. As she's trying to be more open, Iris explains a rumor circulating among her fans that she has a special someone. She fears that someone must have spotted the two of you while out on your last date. Since the super-fans are a force to be reckoned with, she is worried that they may have started to harbor some ill thoughts against her.

While she's used to these risks, Iris is concerned that you might be in danger. She feels immense guilt for taking you out on a public date. Though the super fans haven't yet learned who you are, at this rate, you'll be pulled into their madness sooner or later. It may be for the best to end this relationship for your safety. Your main concern is what would happen if she was in danger and you weren't there to have her back. This might be the best time to ask others for help. Initially, Iris does not want to bother everyone else with her problems, but you convince her to talk to them.

You explain the situation to Doctor Marian, Giorgio, and Raeger. Marian is annoyed that the super-fans won't leave Iris alone. Giorgio feels he has some experience dealing with fans, but Reager reminds Giorgio that his fans aren't at the same level as Iris' fans; this is a different situation here. Iris feels bad for involving everyone with her problem, but Giorgio tells her that he expected something like this to happen someday. It's why he suggested that they all move to Terracotta Oasis! Dr. Marian confirms their commitment to helping Iris out. A few disgruntled fans won't scare them! The good doctor is more bothered that Iris hadn't come to them sooner about this. He's glad to see her reach out to them for help. Raeger is glad to see Iris has had a change of heart.

Back at her house, Iris thanks you for your assistance. She had no idea everyone felt that way about her. Iris wonders if she would have spent her whole life not knowing about her friends' resolve had you not convinced her to rely on them. She is still concerned for your safety. While her fans might not go as far to track you down, Iris wants you to promise her that you'll also think of yourself.

Heart 9


Ut oh, a super fan has found you and demands to know what your relationship status is with Iris. You bravely stand up to the fanatic and confirm that you and Iris are a couple. The super fan becomes irate; you'll never be worth of Iris!

Iris interrupts before the situation gets out of hand. It isn't the fan's option to decide who is worthy of her affection. In fact, she could write paragraph upon paragraph about what makes you special, and it would still not be enough. Iris reminds the super fan that he doesn't have permission to judge you. She reminds the fan that while he sees her as a novelist, she's also a real person. The fan must stop forcing his fantasies onto her. Unlike the fan, you have always loved her as she truly is. Iris will never forgive anyone who harms you!

Before the super fan can react, the Oak Tree Town calvary arrives. Giorgio tells the fan that forcing their unwanted affections onto someone is not attractive. If he loved Iris, then he would have considered her feelings. The super fan thinks for a moment and concludes that he's been a right jerk.

Iris feels sympathy for the poor bloke and tells him that she intends to write about her new experiences since moving to Terracotta Oasis. She wants to try writing about new themes and styles and invites the super fan to give her his thoughts on her next story. Iris asks that he leave and allow her the time she needs to write it. The fanatic is excited about the upcoming book and promises to leave her alone.

After everyone leaves, Iris apologizes for exposing you to that awful situation. You were pleased to hear her heartfelt speech about you. She admits that at first, she was going to try and convince the fanatic that you were just a friend to protect you, but then you went ahead and declared that she was your special sweetheart. You gave her the courage to put her feelings into words and stand up for herself. Iris never imagined that she would ever open her heart up to someone like this. She expects that her notoriety might cause more situations like this. If so, would you face them head-on with her?

Heart 10 (Marriage Proposal)


Iris reminds herself that she needs to convey her feelings, else she can't call herself a novelist. She explains she always thought of herself as disconnected from her words, as though they couldn't apply to her. Iris always felt she had to do things independently, but then you taught her that it was essential to depend on others. She recognizes that when she distanced herself from everyone, it was because she didn't want to be a burden. But in doing so, Iris was neglecting the kindness that everyone gave to her. Insisting on doing everything herself could, unexpectedly, hurt those she cared about. You were the one that made her realize this.

She's glad that you've always been there for her, reaching out and acknowledging the struggles she kept to herself. Deep down, Iris thinks that she hoped that someone would see that part of her. When she's with you, she can indeed be herself. Meeting you has been the best thing that has ever happened.
