Miss Vilma Periwinkle Rabbit is a much loved aunt by her niece Rebecca, nephew Oliver and sister Kate. Oh, and her brother-in-law Alex thinks she’s a determined and kind lady.
About two days ago, she received a surprising offer she could not resist. Claytonia Crafts, a booming clay factory at Bayanan, Muntinlupa needed a consultant for their new range of products for Sylvanians. Her job is to make sure their products meet the discerning standards of Sylvanian folks. If she is to accept, she needs to move to a housing facility of Claytonia and will be away from her beloved family for the first time in so many years.
Ms. Vilma, after much thought decided she was ready for the challenge and happily accepted the offer. When she broke the news to her favorite niece and nephew, they bawled over but after Mama Kate explained that Aunt Vilma will be working at an exciting factory full of so many possible creations of toys, food products, and technological stuff, the raucous died down and were replaced with giggles and longing for future presents.
But still, the parting was not easy. Even Baby Periwinkle wiggled his way to Aunt Vilma for more hugs and kisses before she goes. Alex carried her luggage and waited for the Woodland Bus to arrive.
“Bye Auntie! Don’t forget to call us everyday. I want to know if their clay is more colorful than my molding clays,” reminded Rebecca.
“Auntie, check if that factory is where Santa gets his loot!” shouted Oliver.
“Yes dears! Auntie will text and call you regularly. Be good kids and help out your mom with the chores. Remember I won’t be around anymore to clean-up your toys. I love you all!” cried out Aunt Vilma.
And so begins a new chapter in the life of Ms. Vilma Periwinkle.
