Kakita Karasu enters the shop and walks around looking st all the flowers.

I wish Arami-San was here. I know nothing about flowers.

Tamori Mei was hunched by a corner, paying deep attention to a camellia shrub.

Karasu try's not to scare her but when your as tall and avian as he is it's difficult.

"Um pardon me."

Showing perfect patience with the Crane, Tamori Mei turned and bowed. "Is there a service I can provide Kakita-sama?"

"Um yes, sorry to disturb you. Doji Arami-San recommended you to me. I would like some flowers, please."

Karasu tries to be as polite as he can. This is Arami's friend after all.

"Oh, well then." Her thoughts turned towards her inner world as though Karasu had just asked the most profound question to be posed in history. "Such would require a bit of clarity. It is a rather broad question. Are they for a particular soul in mind?"

"Hai, they are for a very special girl. She is a Phoenix. You may have seen her. She normally wears a...um....basket like thing over her head. I forget what they are called. And I want to send a nice message. But not overly forward. I come to you for your expertise."

"Oh, I see." Mei turned to her assortment of blooms. She reluctantly bypassed the cactus blossom and steeped back to face the rest of her medley of Spring color. "So what is it you think of her?"

The answer to the simple question seems harder then it should.

"Oh, um, well. I think she is very attractive but not perfect. Odd is a good descriptor but she has a good heart. She was hurt in the past but I hope to show her that I'm not like that. I've....I've asked her to marry me and I think she is hesitant.

What would you recommend?"

I really need to get some storyteller skills.

"Then what you wish of her is understanding." Mei took some shears and measured a branch from a tiny cherry tree that has bloomed early for her magics. Gingerly, she clipped a branch without shedding a petal. She then took a long-stemmed pansy and brought them both to Karasu. "Here. arrange these entwined and present them as a gift to her. Be careful to not let a petal fall as you do."
