150 years ago there was a city full of industry and less color than was there before
there was only one place where there was green, up a hill close to the city where the yew tree sat in front of the ministers house
the local apothecary was disliked by the town for how greedy he was and overpriced. he wanted the yew tree for its parts to make medicine with but the minister didn't give it to him. He began preaching against the apothecary and turning the people away from him
the ministers daughters became very sick and he turned to the apothecary for help
the apothecary denied the minister help for he had driven away business and preached against him. the minister began trying anything including giving up his beliefs for help. the apothecary sill dined help.
the ministers daughters died soon after. this was enough for the monster to come walking and destroy the ministers house.
