Chapter 5.2: Yours truly

Happy holidays and Happy New Year to all of my lovely readers.

Here’s a short, but sweet chapter from our newest Twist heir. It’s a bit different from any previous chapter and this new form is something you will see in some of Yew’s chapter. Happy reading.


foto-1 Dear mother and father,

I’ve moved in to a really nice house on a hill overlooking the entire island. Sonic arranged the whole thing and it truly is amazing. You would both probably think that it’s far too extravagant but I quite like it. It’s a lot smaller than our house in Fondant Fields but that just makes it a lot cozier. There’s a pool in our backyard but that is not considered luxury here like it is in Fondant Fields. I swear, every other house has their own pool here. I guess that is somewhat needed considering the weather we usually have.  

foto-3Me and Sonic have been spending a lot of time just enjoying the sun and getting to know the island and so far I really, really like it here. You should come visit some day, maybe you’d like it, too! I’ll admit there’s not much of adventures going on and no real gardening community either. This place is a lot more about the tropic weather and making sure to enjoy whatever the sun and the water has to offer.

foto-10For instance, Sonic and I took lessons in wind surfing during the first few weeks. It’s really great, but hard! I think dad would like wind surfing too. It’s a kind of freedom that I have rarely felt before. Pretty much everyone on this island has been windsurfing at some point in their life. There’s a love for the water that I’m not sure exist anywhere else. And some berries even live on boats! Me and Sonic have a boat too since it’s somewhat needed to get around here, but imagine even living on one? Have you ever encountered the same fascination over the local environment and nature on your travels? To me, it really is fascinating. 

foto-9The ocean is so big and it feels like you can go anywhere. I’m sure you know the feeling. After all your travels and adventures, you have probably felt like that many times. If you ever come visit, we’ll have to go surfing. We don’t have to go far, unless you want to. I’ve also heard that there are some underwater caves that should be great for diving. I haven’t tried it yet, because that is one thing I’d rather to along with you guys when you get here. It’s possibly something you’ll enjoy even more than me, anyway. 

foto-2 During the first few weeks here, I saw this girl at the beach. Isn’t she beautiful? Back then I didn’t dare to really speak to her, especially not since Sonic embarrassed me by shouting at her. Is it weird that I include a picture of some girl I saw at the beach? I don’t know, but she sure made an impression on me.

foto-8I met her again a few weeks later at a bar downtown. Forgive me for dedicating this big part of my first letter to you to her, but she is something special. I learned that night at the bar that her name is Aquamarine. She had come there with her brother Jacinto and they had the same confidence and happiness in their eyes. They must have had a good childhood to earn that. Not that I did not, but I’m sure you’re aware that it was sometimes hard to feel secure and confident when we were constantly on the move? And with grandmother being a vampire and everything. Aquamarine and Jacinto never had any vampires in their family, I’m sure.

foto-7They were celebrating something that night and Jacinto ordered drinks for everyone at the place. Even though I’m not sure what they celebrated, their happiness rubbed off on everyone else at the bar. It was a great night.

foto-4I still keep my camera with me wherever I go. I know mom enjoyed going in to see the pictures I took. Whenever you come to visit, there will be loads of pictures waiting for you. I find that pictures add a dimension to the stories that words sometimes lack. For instance, it would be hard for me to describe to you just how proud the bartender at that bar seems to be over her job. And then one can wonder if it’s even worth mentioning in a letter to you? I don’t know, but I suppose that confidence and happiness about what is what is something that runs through this entire community. 

foto-6I played a game of darts with Aquamarine. By now, you already know where this is heading, don’t you? I mean, looking back now, I can also see it. How she caught my interest at the very start and how she kept appearing in my life. How I valued the times I did run in to her?

foto-11We became friends after a while and it soon turned in to a romantic relation. Aquamarine is my first girlfriend and I couldn’t be prouder. I mean, just look at her! I really value her as a part of my life. I don’t know yet what will become of this because it’s still quite new. Sonic says I’m lucky to have caught her and I couldn’t agree more. 

I have the two most amazing berries in my life now and I’m happy. I like it here in Isla Caramello and even though I sometimes miss you all, I can’t say that I miss Fondant Fields. How are you all doing? Have Froly and Mulberry celebrated their birthdays yet? Please write soon, and come visit whenever you can. There is loads of things and places I want to show you around here. 

Yours truly,
Yew

Chapter 5.1: A fresh start

Screenshot-2I got a small but really nice house in Isla Caramello together with Sonic. Really, it was mostly his work and I just went wherever he told me to go. However, it was a nice house and as soon as I saw it I knew I would come to love it. It was located on a hill overlooking the entire island and it felt like we would be able to watch over the town just from our kitchen window.

Isla Caramello, in its turn, was also a very loveable town. Even though my parents and our family had travelled a lot during my earlier years I had never been to the island before. Perhaps it was due to its limited historical ruins and places for adventures. Dad would never have been happy here. And many of mom’s produce would fail to grow here simply because it was too warm and too dry. But for me, it was perfect.

Screenshot-1736I didn’t come to Isla Caramello to work, but when I read an ad about an opening at the local newspaper something made me apply for it. I don’t know what it was, but something about that ad made me desperately want it. And now that I lived on my own, all grown up, there was no reason to not follow my own dreams. That was how I ended up as a paper boy. Perhaps not the fanciest job one could have, but it had to do with words, kind of, and that was good enough. I knew there would be bills to pay eventually and I didn’t want Sonic to do all the hard work.

Screenshot-1738It was great living with Sonic. Much better than it had been living with my own family – even though I really loved them all. But I was never given much room in that family. There was always someone else needing the attention and the spotlight. And with Sonic, I could be myself to a much greater extent. He never judged me or looked down at me. He never put any pressure on me and I never felt the need to please him. He was my best friend.

Screenshot-1727When I wasn’t working, we spent most of our days just lying on the beach, enjoying the sun. Sonic had been to Isla Caramello several times before and was one of those ‘bows who would take every opportunity to travel to a warm country just to relish the sun. And sure enough, he was a true master of relaxation on the beach.

Screenshot-1731It was nice being on my own and free from my family. No matter how much I loved them, it was impossible to deny the fact that we were a family surrounded with chaos. One of those families that other ‘bows looked at and thought of as freaks. Now, I could be just normal. And Sonic was the best of friends. Even though he knew all about my past and the chaos I had put up with, he never mentioned it in any negative way. We talked about it from time to time, but mostly we made sure to have fun.

Screenshot-1730“This is life, really” Sonic sighed and turned to his back. I couldn’t really do anything but agree, sunbathing without any worry was quite nice.

“Whoa, look at that one” Sonic said shortly later and nodded towards the waterside.

Screenshot-1745I looked at his target and saw two perfect green legs, attached to a perfectly pneumatic body. At the very top beamed a happy, good-looking face. The girl was stunning and judging by how she moved, she knew it.

Screenshot-1728I sunk back down on my towel, but couldn’t keep my eyes off the girl. She was the prettiest thing I had ever seen. I sighed to myself, which unfortunately, didn’t go by unnoticed. I sighed again, but for a completely different reason, when Sonic called for the girl.

Screenshot-1746“Are you talking to me?” the girl asked and turned around, looking straight at me. Her voice was made up of honey and sugar.

“Uh, no” I said and blushed. “It was my friend there” I pointed at Sonic and rolled over to my stomach, avoiding any further eye contact with her. I wasn’t used to feeling lost for words or uncomfortable in the presence of others but this girl was truly something special. I heard her mutter something about someone stupid and I let several minutes pass before I dared to turn my head in her direction again.

Screenshot-1747The girl was now tip-toeing out in the water and I could hear her draw for her breath as the cold waves hit her so-far dry body parts. She was stunning. Absolutely gorgeous.

I smiled to myself. Girls had never really been much of my interest until now. Perhaps this whole move to Isla Caramello would do more good to me than I had ever thought. At least, this place and its inhabitants was something very special.

Screenshot-1739“Oh my Berry!” Sonic laughed when we were back home later that day. “I can’t believe how you acted before that girl. You love her, don’t you?”

“Don’t be silly” I hissed back jokingly. “She was gorgeous, you can’t deny that!”

“It was like you’ve never seen a hot girl before in your life” Sonic laughed.

I took one of the pillows and smacked him over the head, “You were the one calling out for her!” Sonic took a wirl around and picked up a pillow of his own and before we knew it the pillow fight was a fact. The feathers in our pillows swirled around above our heads as we went a round deciding who had been the more silly one on the beach. In fact, it didn’t really matter because we both knew we had thought that girl was hot.

“I hope we’ll see her again sometime” Sonic said once our little pillow fight had stopped and we were both sitting down on the floor.

“I’d like to know her name” I agreed and her image once again popped up before my eyes.

Screenshot-1751“You took her picture?!” Sonic gasped a couple of days later when I had processed the photo and framed it on our wall. I hadn’t thought much about it. To me, it wasn’t weird taking pictures of whatever I encountered. Sonic knew that too, of course, but the photo of our mysterious green girl had still surprised him.

I liked the thought of having her picture on my wall. My walls were in a way my diary and she had definitely been something worth remembering. Besides, her beauty made a good decoration.

“Of course I did” I replied after a while and smiled.

Screenshot-1750“I fucking love you man” Sonic said and threw his hand up in the air, waiting for me to high five him. Being me, and also quite proud of myself, I didn’t need more than that. With a loud clasp our hands went together in a sign of the success the photo was.


The girl that got Yew to go kind of crazy is Aquamarine Spectrum and she is a spare from AriellA’s rainbowcy “As the color wheel turns”. We’ll see more of this girl, eventually, and I might even let Yew learn her name. 😉

While Yew is living with Sonic story-wise, he is actually living with his family in-game. Until his siblings are YAs, they have to remain in the household because of the previous generation’s Deadbeat Parent roll. Now, they are all living in a little side home on Yew’s new lot. It’s crowded and annoying when taking pictures, but it works. I’ll let them “visit” in the story soon just to show you Coral and Berrian as elders. </3

Also, my game-play with Yew is a lot centered around his wishes and his LTW, all because of the Fulfilled roll. I wish I could tell you just how interesting he is as a character but it’s hard. At least, he is very… versatile.
