Ylani wandered across the bridge leaving Wildhaven Marsh, glancing over at a sign which declared she was now entering a place called YoZakura. Not far from the bridge was a group of japanese style shops. Seeing a cute short kimono outfit she ducked in and picked one out. She had never been able to stand the long kimonos that hindered her movement. But this short one, she went into a curtained off area and changed into it, yes this short one was perfect. She bought it and wore it out of the store.
“Miss, oh miss.” A voice called out to Ylani and she looked over to see a fairy sitting at a table with paints. The fairy smiled and waved her over saying, “You should let me paint your face to match your pretty kimono. The donations go directly to Relay for Life.”
Ylani cocked her head and sat in front of the fairy with a small nod. The fairy picked up a wet cloth and gently wiped her face to clean it off. As she started her painting Ylani asked, “Relay for Life donations? What is that?”
“Why the whole reason for this lovely faire! Have you really not heard what the special sales proceeds go to?” Ylani shook her head and the fairy explained as she painted her face. “Well the money goes into a charity which then uses it to help people fighting various diseases called cancers. They are awful diseases and many die from them. So each year we have this huge faire and earn money for the charity. There are also lots of performances and a quest!”
“How do I know which items donate the proceeds to the charity?”
The fairy finished her face painting and smiled, “Oh that’s easy! They will have a purple sign that lets you know.”
Ylani smiled back and went to stand but the fairy held up a hand to stop her and asked, “Would you allow me to cast a small glamour on you? Just to temporarily change your hair and wings. Oh and hide the horns. It will match your kimono nicely.”
Ylani hesitated and then shrugged. “Sure, why not. Its fun to look different every once in a while.”
The fairy clapped and mumbled a quick enchantment waving her now glowing hands at Ylani. “There we go! Would you like to see?” She held up a small mirror for Ylani to look in. Ylani smiled and thanked the fairy before wandering off to peruse more shops. Anytime she saw a sign with purple stating that item was a donation one she would stop and consider it, all too often she would purchase it as well. At least the money is going to a good cause, she told herself.
As she wandered she heard a loud rumbling like thunder. Her eyes immediately drawn to the skyline where she sees an ancient dragon curled around a mountain in the sky. She turned and walked the opposite direction, she did not intend to challenge him in any way.
Soon she reached a small pond with sakura trees in full bloom around it. Instantly some sakura fairies came and began to dance around her. She laughed and couldn’t help but join them. They danced and laughed for some time as petals fell around them, suddenly a goblin jumped out from the forest canopy bed nearby growling angrily at them. the fairies scattered and Ylani didn’t have time to do more than open her mouth to apologize before she was hit with his magic and fell to the ground unconscious.

A quick note – Sorry for the length of this post, it kind of got away from me. 🙂 However I did also want to bring the Relay for Life aspect in since that is the main focus of this wonderful faire. Hope you are enjoying the story so far! Sorry i don’t have every sim hot linked on here, however the lovely FF site I linked has not only the slurls of each sim but a picture and short description.
