About the Story
Out of the TextFire "12-pack", this is an April's Fool game "demo" in which your grandmother has you weed her garden - when you suddenly find something much better to do.
A brief and poetical fable of a child tempted away from the safe and familiar. Atypically serious, and complete, for a Textfire demo.

This story is very pretty and well-developed within its scope. I would say it works very well as an interactive poem.
Chris Klimas is the inventor of Twine, and in many of his old games you can see leanings towards the future design of Twine.
This is a textfire game. The Textfire Demo 12-pack was released on April Fool's in 1998, claiming to be demos of an upcoming commercial studio called Textfire.
This is the most complete and, in my opinion, the best game in the pack. A grandma is making you clean, and you don't want to. You have a dreamlike encounter with a young girl. It almost has a fairy-tale type setting, but in real life.
It uses an interesting menu-based system. Very cool.
