He recalled his memories in a small village when he was 5 years old. In the village, he lived with his grandfather and a neighbor friend.

At the end of this period, he meets many friends as a child.
In the next phase, he goes to many places in the village. At this time, his farm is growing strongly. When they make products like fruits and chicken eggs, the young man receives the first money. The merchants will go to the farm to buy garden products and give him many bonuses. He uses bonuses to buy decorative items and others to develop the farm. Many new caves under the house are created by his efforts. He joins a festival in the final stages. He comes out of his farm when hearing the bell from the church.
