Hearing Ann singing, you walk into her room. However, she is startled, not thinking that anybody could hear her. Ann likes to sing while she cleans, so she asks if you like to clean. Saying that you love to clean will make Ann very happy.

While having a conversation together, Doug thinks that Ann is not feeling well, even if she says she's fine. Just as you walk in, Ann says that she is having stomach pains. Doug asks what you should do, choose the option to take Ann to the Clinic.

Doctor tells Ann that her stomach probably hurts because of what she ate, which Ann replies with a large list of food consisting stir fry, omelet rice, savory pancake, tempura noodles, cheesecake, apple pie, cake, ice cream, and pumpkin pudding. After being told by Elli to not to eat so much next time, Ann will thank you and gives you a gift as a token of her appreciation.

Yellow Heart Event


Enter the Inn between 10 AM and 7 PM on Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, or Sunday.[7] Ann is at yellow heart or higher and you have seen her previous heart events.

Doug will confront you about Ann, telling it has been hard to raise her since her mother passed away, but he tried his best. Doug asks if you "like" his daughter, so tell him you "like" to make them happy. Ann walks in and senses that her Father is talking about her. Doug acts innocent, but she storms off before you are able to say anything about it.

Rival Heart Events

  • NOTE: If you raise your heart level up too much with any bachelorette, you will NOT be able to see events between the rival couples.

Black Rival Heart Event

Go to the second floor of the Inn between 7 PM and 9 PM on Friday. This event can be triggered at any time in Fall or Winter, but only in the first week of Spring or Summer.[8] As Ann approaches Cliff in his room, she attempts to make small talk, but Cliff is still very shy. She decides not to force him to talk or clean his room. Cliff is still thankful that Ann was willing to talk to him.

Blue Rival Heart Event

Enter the Church between 11 AM and 4 PM.[9] This event must be triggered before Cliff gets a job at the Winery. It will not trigger in fall.

As Ann stops by the Church to deliver some lunch to Carter, he asks her to show Cliff around town. He does not try to make friends on his own, but Carter believes it would be good for Cliff. Ann agrees, saying she will do it later.

Green Rival Heart Event

If Cliff stayed in Mineral town during the first year, you will be able to trigger this event in Year 2 or later. It will take place in Doug's Inn on Saturday between 11 AM and 1 PM.[10]

Ann and Doug are discussing how long they think Cliff will stay in Mineral Town. When Cliff comes in to the Inn, Ann asks him just that, saying he can stay at the Inn forever if he wants to. Both Doug and Ann certainly wouldn't mind.

Orange Rival Heart Event

Walk into Aja Winery's storage house between 10 AM and 1 PM on any day except Saturday.[11] It will trigger in Year 4 or later, as long as you have seen Cliff and Ann's previous events.

When Ann brings Cliff his lunch, Duke comments that Ann and Cliff look like newlywed couple. Ann immediately denies anything and walks out of the Winery. Duke doesn't see the problem; in fact, his problem is that Cliff hasn't proposed yet! Cliff is embarrassed by Duke's observation, and doesn't know what to say.

Your Child

One season after you and Ann are married, Ann will not be feeling well in the morning. The duo will go to the clinic with the Doctor announcing that she is pregnant. 60 days later, Ann will give birth to a baby. For the first 60 days, the baby will be sleeping in the bed and you cannot interact with them. After another 60 days, your baby will grow into a toddler and from now on, can talk and give gifts to them.[12] In Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town, your child can only be male.

Other Events

Remembering Ann's Mother

Go to the Inn at 10 AM on Fall 5 of any year[13] Ann will tell you that Doug has taken the day off and that the Inn will be closing early. Leave the Inn and go to Mother's Hill to find Doug. He says that today is the anniversary of his wife's death, so he always takes the day off to remember her. Doug will spend most of the day at Mother's Hill.

Doug and Duke's Argument

Visit the Inn between 2 PM and 4 PM on a rainy Thursday.[14] While Duke and Doug are fighting, Ann is trying to get them to stop arguing but it wasn't successful so she asks for your help. If you intervene, the two will start to laugh because they can't remember what they were even arguing about to begin with.

Cooking for the Girls

After you have expanded your house and purchased a kitchen, try cooking anytime after 8 AM. There is a chance that Ann, Popuri, Karen and Mary will stop by.[15]

Each of them have come to ask if you'll cook them something using your new kitchen. If you speak to each of the girls, they will each have a different request for what they'd like to eat:[16]

  • Karen will request french fries, tempura, or popcorn.
  • Ann will request mushroom rice, a hotcake, or cheese fondue.
  • Popuri will request fried rice, an omelet, or scrambled eggs.
  • Mary will request relax tea, veggie juice, or chocolate cake.
  • Elli will request strawberry milk, hot milk, or a sandwich.

This event may happen more than once and is only featured in More Friends of Mineral Town.


This event will randomly occur upon buying a big bed. Before you go to bed at night, Ann, Mary, Popuri, Karen and Elli will knock on the door and show up. The girls have heard that you purchased a big bed and want to sleep in it. With all five of them in the bed, it seems a little bit cramped and uncomfortable. The girls leave after deciding that the bed isn't big enough for all of them.

Ann's Present

Go to the Inn on Winter 11 between 7 PM and 9 PM when Ann is not married.[17]

Seeing Doug working, Ann excitedly enters the room and tells her father that she has something for him. When she gives him a present, Doug doesn't understand why she would gave him a gift. Ann has to remind Doug that it's his birthday today! He thanks Ann before going back to work.

Customers For Kai

The event starts when your character walks into Kai's restaurant between 5-7 PM.[18] Triggering the event will cause the day to end.

Kai greets you and says that he doesn't have any customers, as usual. Popuri suddenly calls and walks into the restaurant, excited, telling Kai that she brought customers for him. He's excited as he sees the first few customers come in. Popuri then says that there are more customers outside. Kai is happy that he has customers, but worried that it's going to be too difficult to cook for them all. He asks the player to help and you agree. The scene shows you, Kai, and Popuri scrambling around the restaurant trying to serve everybody.

After all the customers have been served, your character, Kai, and Popuri are alone in his restaurant. Kai is tired after working so hard. He tells Popuri that he's grateful for the customers, but she brought too many! Popuri apologizes for overdoing it and Kai admits that he might be glad that he has such few customers. He thanks your character and you go home.

Ann's Personality

After Ann and Cliff are married, visit the Inn between 6 AM and 8 AM on a rainy day; it cannot be in Winter. In order to get inside the Inn early, you need to be good friends with Doug.[19]

As you step in the middle of an argument, Ann is upset that Cliff doesn't think that she's ladylike enough and thinks that her husband should love her for the way that she is. Cliff is quick to realize the error of his ways and apologizes.
