Letter:
1. Kikijanika, Looking for a Friend to Bring Light to the Darkness

Address: The Darkest Alley 85, City of lost sunlight
Country: Finland
Playing for: girl, friendship
I was sitting in my kitchen, lighting yet another candle. As always in this city of eternal night, it was dark outside. Another year had just begun but everything was just the same. That's when I thought: "Why not start a new year with a new friend?" Maybe together we can bring some light into this darkness☺
2. Kikijanika's Summer Fling
Location: somewhere outside the city of Rey.
Country: Khorasan
Playing for: boy, romance
I was lucky enough to find a new best friend in Shahrzad Al-Khayzuran and was happy to witness her blossoming romance with the khalif of Khorasan. Inspired by their love I'm now looking for a boyfriend of my own to spend a summer full of adventures with.

Picks:
Game 1:

Pink → City → #5 → Spa → Rhombus → A → And the Winner Is ... !
Game 2:

White → Exotic → #3 → Dating → Square → A → And the Winner Is ... !

Women 1-10 are lined up. You must now eliminate 5 of them.
We asked all the women which location they enjoyed more on a first date.

A) Being in the city.
B) Being in the country.

Which would you prefer?

If you pick A, the cover of your book must have a light source (doesn't have to be lit) or an item that is silver, gray, gold, or yellow.

If you pick B, the cover of your book must have a plant or an item that is any shade of green or blue.

Note: Words that are one of the colors are acceptable. If literally anything on the cover has one of those colors, it works.
