Zack’s Concern

When you visit the Poultry Farm, you will find Zack visiting Lillia, asking how she’s feeling. Lillia says she’s doing fine and thanks Zack for his concern, but she tells him not to get his hopes up. This makes Zack sad, and he leaves the farm.

Zack is one of the customers who visits Kai’s restaurant during this event.

Visit Kai’s restaurant at Mineral Beach between 5:00 PM and 7:00 PM. Kai tells you he doesn’t have any customers. Popuri shows up with a lot of customers, and now Kai is worried that it’ll be too difficult for him to cook for all of them. You agree to help Kai, and he thanks you for your help.

Note: The day will end when you trigger this event, so finish all your tasks before going to the beach.
