By the power of the kami, Tamori Mei has solved this problem at the florist shop where blooms of every seed can be found year-round.

[D0 EM] A Fragrant Blossoming [Open]

Postby Doji Arami » Mon Jan 09, 2017 6:55 am

Flowers are best appreciated in the lingering cold of the morning, Doji Arami always thought, as he leisurely strolls into the flower shop. He has heard of this Spring of Winter, and marvelled from afar how one girl procured and maintains such an inventory. Shipping foodstuffs and weapons across Crane lands is itself a heroic effort, and a service that he is pleased to provide, but this cornucopia in the winter? It is a miracle.

"Tamori Mei" - the name fragrant with mystery. How do you do this?

He enters into the aroma of the many potted flowers and looks for the woman, eyes on the look out for jasmine good enough to be gifted by a Crane.

Tamori Mei appeared from the behind the storefront carrying a potted shrub of peonies. She displayed them front and center just next to the cactus flower. From that, she plucked a needle from it and used it to pin one of the peony to her hair. She noticed the arrangement of fabric and human and looking for something and gave greetings with a smooth bow. "Welcome Customer-sama. Are you here to meet my friends?"

Arami just barely refrains from blinking in surprise at the strange girl, his courtier training allowing him to instead bow and smoothly slide into the conversation.

"Indeed I am. They have been inviting me all morning, their scents seem to say hello. We Crane are flowers too. It would have been rude not to go." :)

He bestows a warm smile at the woman, genuinely amused at her mannerism. Another fragile, beautiful thing to be protected - its survival a defiance of the horrors that threaten us all.

"The out-of-season ones I grow myself with prayers. The others are allowed to bloom at their own pace. Was their some flower in particular you were looking for?"

"Prayers? You are blessed to have the favor of the kami. Fortunate are those who birth beauty to the world." A sincere smile, for he meant what he said.

Tamori Mei simply gestured to one of the shrubs holding a basket's worth of that very blossom. "These were grow two days ago in anticipation of court. They are very eager to know the world beyond these grounds."

"And I am eager to show them around. What will I need to give to be able to take them on their adventure? And is there any particular care that they would require? You know them best of all, after all."

"Yes. The white Chrysanthemum wishes to know why so many deem it the reflection of truth and seeks to know why. Take one to the Shrine of Shinsei and leave another at the Iron Mountain Dojo upon Hojatsu-sensei's grave. The rest are yours to keep."

"The white chrysanthemum shall have the opportunity to find out." Arami smiles at Tamori Mei, glad to have indulged her.

Before he starts the task of gathering the blossoms, Arami thinks to ask, "Do all flowers speak to you, Tamori?"

"As any of the kami, yes, Doji-sama. But the secret of talking to them is first, in listening. If one listens more than one talks, there comes more udnerstanding."
