Savannah’s Sad Surprise

As I walked from my house to the town hall plaza, a mysterious voice called out to me.

?????: Um, would you mind coming over here for just a second? Please?Of course, it belonged to Wisp the ghost. I sure haven’t seen him in a long time…and not just because he’s transparent. He asked me to find his lamp for him.

Wisp: You probably guessed, but the thing I need help finding is...my lamp.So I kept an eye out for his lamp as I made my rounds. Up by Able Sisters, Kitty wanted a new greeting. I told her to say “take a good look.”

Kitty: "Take a good look"... is that what you want, mrowrr?
Yes, but it’s the last time.

Over by Forest’s northwest bridge, I listened in on a conversation between Poncho and Freckles. Poncho asked Freckles to show him her “air badminton skills.” So Freckles started reciting a play-by-play of some sports action. But she clearly was getting her sports all mixed up.

Freckles: Freckles recovers the fumbled bat and charges down the fairway, dribbing the puck!
Ah, the great sport of footbasegolfbaskethockey.

Poncho was confused at the end, asking which sport she was playing. Freckles then said badminton was boring, so she made the whole thing up. You don’t say…

In the southern part of town, I found Wisp’s empty lamp among the palm trees.

Wisp's empty lamp near the palm trees in Animal Crossing: City Folk.Savannah’s house was nearby, so I went inside. My heart sank when I saw her furniture packed up in boxes. Savannah is moving out of town. 🙁

Savannah: Well, there's no point in hiding it. You've probably guessed, but I've decided to leave Forest.Savannah is one of my favorite animals in the entire Animal Crossing series, and she’s been quite elusive. I wanted her for years before she moved in, and I’ve never had her in New Leaf. The only time I remember having her in the GameCube game is when she moved out before I even got a chance to meet her. This is probably my saddest goodbye since Bob packed up in 2013.

Anyway, I then rejoined Wisp outside of town hall. He told me to take his lamp up into my attic and rub it there. So I did, and he offered to grant a wish for me.

Wisp: What do you want me to do?
I want you to stop Savannah from leaving.

The only options were for him to pull weeds, squash roaches, or give me stuff. I asked for furniture, and he gave me a Mama bear. Whoop-de-doo.

  1. If Savannah ever moves to my New Leaf town, I’ll save her for you. I know how sad it is to lose a beloved neighbor, still missing Shep and Bob.

      1. It’s all good. I meant a long time later. I have her amiibo card. Right now I’m finding it hard to let anyone go. Got a good crew right now.

  2. I forgot that Wisp was in City Folk. Also, just saying, someone is cloning me on this chat. I really hate whoever this person is. Can you figure out who this person is for me, please? Thank you!
