[Day 20, Early Afternoon, Private] To collect a Scroll.

Upon the third floor of the Tenshukaku, the Scorpion Clan are given comfortable accommodations. In their common chamber, the lord of the Dragon has left them a gift: A apparently plain paper lantern of stark white. When lit, however, the inner lantern illuminates a vibrant red with the story of the scorpion and frog painted portrayed in shadow-relief.

[Day 20, Early Afternoon, Private] To collect a Scroll.

Postby Moshi Janisha » Fri Feb 24, 2017 9:08 am

((OOC: I am aware this thread is late and apologise for it. However Janisha would NOT have missed this pick up.))

Janisha arrives at the Onyx Spider Embassy, with the intent to collect the scroll, another step on her journey.

God yesterday was painful. And likely it will only get worse today.

Bowing as she approaches the Embassy, she said, "Moshi Janisha here to see Yogo-sama, and Shinjo-sama. I believe they are expecting me."

Katsuyori was in his quarters chilling while smoking whatever his cousin had brought for him.

He was drinking tea. He wasn't sure when the Moshi will return, but was happy when he was informed she was outside.

He instructed that she is escorted to his room, asked for four guards to be placed outside his door as soon as she joins him and ordered that Lady Kazusa is informed.

Megumi is sprawled across some pillows sipping some tea and occasionally taking a puff from her pipe. She wasn't indulging in anything stronger than tobacco. She grins at him.

"Cousin, you really are going a bit strong on the herbal aids, you know..."

"There is a power common among Akutenshi, like me, that allows them to hear the thoughts of every person in the room. There is another that allows them to perceive tainted creatures with their minds. There is also one that allows a maho-tsukai to possess an oni. I am fine, I just need something from keeping me from being too happy. Winter court is progressing quite lovely, if I may say."

Janisha enters the room and bows low to both of them, "May the Jade Sun guide you both, Yogo-sama, Shinjo-sama. Thank you for seeing me. Have you had rice today?"

She makes no comment on what he is smoking or anything that she may have overheard as she entered the room. Not only was it not courteous, she wasn't quite sure how she and the Yogo stood.

If he wants me in and out in seconds, that's up to him. Honestly, I actually don't have an answer for how we have ever stood relative to each other. To call what we have a friendship is....rather stretching the definition.

Katsuyori activated Benten's Touch on himself and bowed.

"I haven't, but I hope that the chef will bring something more exotic. I think my cousin has already made arrangements. Didn't you Megumi-sama? Please join us. May I comment on your etiquette?"

Janisha tried desperately not to smile, before she said, "Of course Yogo-sama. Despite my words two nights ago, I suspect I would find it strange if you didn't."

Its possible he is referring to the fact you sound rushed, rather then Courtesy being pointless.

Sitting down she said, "Thank you for the offer, Yogo-sama. I have yet to try anything from the Burning Sands and I would love to see what Shinjo-sama has arranged."

"I would suggest in the future when you call upon the Jade Sun that you remember that there is also an Obsidian Moon. Back when Lady Sun was still alive Lord Moon would have his due. Even if only to discourage him from troubling someone."

Janisha gives a small smile, and a slight bow of thanks, "Yogo-sama, I am well aware of what the Moon is owed. Such realization is part of what got me this curse in the first place. As you said, Lord Moon was Lady Sun's Superior, and the twin Dragons that rule Tengoku now, share a soul. However I do appreciate that you told me, for many Shugenja seem to forget this part of the Celestial Order soon after training. It is good to know I am not the only one who remembers their training."

Although the fact the the other is a madman probably isn't a good thing.

Moving to sit down, she continues, "Such knowledge is under appreciated sadly. To great someone with, 'May Lord Moon's light look away from you' or 'May you ever be shielded from the blessings of the Obsidian Moon,' is likely to get you thrown out of court. I am careful to pray to them both at least once a year during the closest full moon to the Winter Solstice, to appease them and spare my Lord their ire. To do more then that risks earning their favour...

And I have drawn the attention of enough wrathful Fortunes for one Lifetime."

He offered her a pipe.

'Since you mentioned training. You both have a copy of my pillow book. Would you please tell me your opinion on its content and its calligraphy?"

He took a sip from his pipe.
