[Day 5 - Late Afternoon] Tending the Garden (OPEN)

Postby Doji Arami » Fri Jan 20, 2017 10:47 am

Fragrant and resplendent, Doji Arami arrives at the shop with the confidence of one who has walked these paths before. He searches for the peculiar Tamori Mei, nods respectfully when he finds her, and says, "Good afternoon, Tamori Mei. I hope the flowers are doing well with all this wind." He gestures as a breeze flicks his hair away.

Tamori Mei was hanging as many lanterns as possible in preparation for the coming chill of night. "Jasmines? Yes, they are over they are over in that far corner. Careful, they are set next to the cactus flower." Mei continued to mind her lanterns and their warmth. "Just do them a favor and put at least one on display in an ikebana. They are a very exhibitionist type."

"That was just what I had in mind for them. I am glad that they would be pleased with their new arrangement," Arami says with a smile. As he gathers the flowers into his bag, avoiding the prickly thorns of the cactus, he turns to the woman and gives her a thoughtful look.

Mei gave the slightest hint of a sigh. "I have my duties to the kami. It is joyful work. There are many spirits to commune with. I never feel alone here. Ever. It's like hearing the same song every day."

"To be surrounded by such music must be a most fortunate existence. And I am sure kami are delighted to receive your service." You could have been Crane, in another world... but why not change the world?

"Midori told me this morning that you sometimes gift her with seeds to plant in the castle gardens. Spreading the kami's joy, though only you can hear its song." A thoughtful pause, Arami casting his gentle eyes on the flower girl. "Should my family wish to share in this delight, would you be willing to help our plants grow, Tamori Mei?"

At this, Tamori Mei Mei turned a bit pensive. "Oh, as much as it would be an honor, Doji-san, my home is here in the mountains with my family and all the care I have for them. I cannot possibly deny them my presence."

"I apologize, I was unclear. Of course the Crane would not dream of denying your family and the mountain of your presence. But should we have some plants we would wish to cultivate during our time here at Winter Court, I think there is no one better to help coax the kami to let them grow." A compliment, and a sincere one.

"Would you be willing to assist us, Mei-san?"

Tamori Mei looked to the other flowers as if consulting with sage advisers. "Something could be worked upon. Many of these flowers are descended from those that sprung from Kosaten province far to the south. You would not by chance be familiar with the place?"

"Indeed I am. Very much so - it is in the southern part of Crane lands, and was once a richly productive agricultural territory. What do these flowers speak of it?"

"Just a longing for the memories of their ancestors. Would you by chance know a means to sate their nostalgia?"
