[Day 28 LE] Birdseed

A row of storehouses have been converted into guest quarters just north-facing the training grounds. The Crane Clan Occupy the center-left building. Their accommodations are modestly furnished with notable works of art taking up one sliding door wall in the middle. One panel is a painting of Shiro Daidoji, the matching panel reveals a di-glyph, showing a landscape of the Kosaten Province beyond.

"That is all I ask...that no one make a scene. Are there any other questions? Do we have enough sake? Does anyone want to keep their instruments here to play while we gather after? I don't know." she blushes a little. "I've tried and tried to be terribly organized about all this, but here at the end, I am not sure if I'm organizing a wedding or a battle."

"I could leave my shamisen here perhaps. Karasu-san and I could play together once again, ne?"

He gives Kyoumi a reassuring smile.

You are doing great. Certainly better than I could have ever done.

"As for the food, I have requested that the shugenja gathered here use their gifts to create the food for the wedding. I am most grateful for this favor, the three of you. I know there will certainly be enough for the feast here at the embassy, though I am not aware of the total combined amount of food. It would gladden me to throw a feast for the heimin as well. Should there not be enough for them as well, I would be willing to cover the difference with my own coin."

"Wedding, battle, same thing."

Karasu says jokingly.

Kyoumi nods. "If you want the book, Hitomi-san, Kousuda-san gave Karasu-san his copy. Though you are probably waiting until spring for your wedding?"

Koyo blanches, and looks meaningfully at Akiko, gaze stern.

You said nothing about Scorpion...if that Yogo is there, I won't be staying, nor will I let you.

He may be skilled at maintaining his face, but everyone present can easily detect that the Phoenix Ambassador is agitated. So much so that he evidently does not hear the comments regarding food.

The mention of the Scorpion ... she maintains her on, though he had not known either. Now isn't the time. Poise. We are better than this, than them.

She offers the bottle of sake to Kyoumi (ooc: happy to handwave refusals if you are) and inclines her head. "We shall do what we can to ensure that Inari's blessing is sufficient for all who will be gathered for the wedding. Koyo's monastery also produces sake, of which I have brough a small bottle to be sampled tonight. If the quality pleases you, we can provide more for the wedding." She makes a small bow.

You're deflecting. If this isn't mentioned, it will ruin the wedding, and possibly our clans' friendship...

He is not at ease with things as they stand, but Koyo at least nods to Kyoumi at Akiko's words. "There is not much left of it here, but whatever remains is yours, should you find it acceptable."

" I believe that is the case... However it is never to early to learn, I will wait until a copy can be found or returned so I may study "

She looked at the two and decided that if she could she would help she knew it could backfire but she owed both of the two Isawa too much in their patience with her.

She bows " forgive my interruption however, I feel that it must be said. Certain members of the Scorpion have done nothing but insult the ambassador, and his lady. Constantly trying to provoke the Clan...

This Scorpion in question will certainly try to use this opportunity... I feel that if he must be invited I could volunteer to keep him away.. despite his addled mind he finds some odd joy in trying to cause Isawa San and Isawa Sama nothing but pain.

The Phoenix want this to be a joyous occasion.. and not insult the Crane or the Unicorn nor any other Clan due to the disruption this individual will cause if given any opportunity... Again I apologize for saying so.."

She kneels and bows deeply offering the most formal apology she can.

Koyo blinks in surprise at Hitomi's actions, finding not for the first time this court that he has underestimated her sincerity.

I need to find a way to repay her for that...meanwhile, what do I do? What's the protocol for responding to someone of lesser rank who has made vulnerable but sincere statements on your behalf? Baekho, where are you when I need you?

He does nothing, unsure about whether he should acknowledge Hitomi's comment or let the Crane do so.
