[Day 28, Midday] Blooming of the Orchids (Ask)

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.

"Is there anything I could offer to him that would make his visit more pleasant?"


Konjō scratches his head.

"A suggestion on where I'm going to plant this?"

A coconut. Why a coconut? Unless....
His eyes widen in realization. It's already fermented.

His smile is faint but warm. "Hai, but that seems to be the most impactful, and the most appreciated."

Katsuyori motions to a servant to bring the man the tools he wanted.

"Sadly the Scorpion Embassy has no garden. I would also preferred to have a garden for today, or real flowers, but I had to relay on illusions for the decorations."

Dotai blinks at the Kitsune's outburst and sips his tea. He smiles warmly to Megumi and bows his head to her, then to the others. And sips his tea.

Katsuyori made another head count and saw that the Tonbo was still missing.

"It seems that something has preoccupied Tonbo-sama. I assume we can begin with this and if he shows up he will catch up. So as some of you know I am doing research on a delicate matter. It is quite complicated and it requires people to make certain leaps of faith. I hope that those of you that are present here today will make these leaps, although it saddens me that there are so few of you."

He took a sip from his cup of tea and continued.

" Before all this, when Rokugan had only one Emperor and times were more normal, there was a festival dedicated to the blooming of the White Orchid, hence the plant behind me. During that festival servants of the kami exchanged knowledge. Often on that day samurai would visit them and ask them questions. Of course today is not that festival, but it felt as proper analogue."

The Rinjin does his best to quietly drive the spike into the three indentations on the large nut. The red panda helps hold the coconut, excitement shining in his eyes.

Katsuyori studies the Kitsune and the torture of the poor coconut.

I must hang out more often with this guy.

Dotai's eye twitches with each tap, "Ah but thus far there is only two of us not blessed with the ability to speak to the kami. Are we to be blessed with answers to questions?"

Katsuyori nodded to his friend.

"Indeed you are. At least that was my idea, I hope you like it."

pop

The last hole is made. And with that, the little spirit rotates the large nut until his mouth is over one of the holes. He leans back to drink.

gulp gulp gulp gulp gulp

Naofumi finishes chugging and offers the coconut back to Konjō. Once the shugenja takes the burden from the red panda, he sits back with a contented burp.

The Kitsune sniffs the holes. His eyes almost cross.
