The house was in the same place I’d left it all those months ago — but everything was changed. The flowers grayed, bushes bare, an infestation of weeds now encroached on the pastel-tinted memories that once blossomed in my Animal Crossing town. I stopped visiting Tiddy City (yes, that’s my island and proud of it) sometime over the summer.
