Winter Court 1120 - Shiro sano Kakita – Avery

Postby Guile » Wed Jun 13, 2012 5:36 am

The beautiful snow covered garden leads to a large room with wide overhanging windows. Centered within this room stands several gilded cages. Each of these cages contains a different type of bird. Doves, cranes and even swans are kept in these delicate structures, once again emphasising the Crane Clan’s devotion to the arts. Central to these is a larger cage filled with birds of prey.
The samurai’s only measure of worth is his honour.

"Toshimoko-sama, your aviary does your and your clan credit. I am certain that this son of Akitaro will rest comfortably here."

The young Lion pauses briefly.

"Your service to the Emperor in caring for their bird does you honor, of course, but it occurs to me that had you chosen to limit your hospitality, the Emperor would perhaps have refused my gift, and in that I am thankful for the friendship between Lion and Crane."

The Grey Crane smiles at the young samurai.

"To be perfectly honest, Soshu-san, I'm glad to be out of the hall for a while. It appears to me that so far, yours has been the only other clan present that believes in presenting the Emperor with gifts that are in fact meant for him, rather than being presented as a statement of power or position. Jodan-sama was one of my favoured pupils.... And knowing how much he does enjoy hunting, I could do no less than to assist with the Son of Akitaro's housing."

"Plus..." Toshimoko smiles. " I'm glad to see that Toturi-sama isn't the only Lion out there who believes in putting honour above any clan grudges or rivalry."

"Shall you be participating in the Topaz?"

"if the Lion was so insecure as to need so humble a servant as me to show off for it, then it would be a poor clan indeed, Toshimoko-sama. We are a proud Clan, it is true, but to use a so-called gift to a friend as an attack on an enemy seems somewhat graceless.
The Topaz is not for me: I passed my gempukku in a quiet ceremony near the Hall of Ancestors. My role is to observe, and to tell stories of the glories of the victors."

Toshimoko nods.

"Understandable, Soshu-san. I do hope that you are, however, coming to witness the events as they unfold? Having heard your recital of the stories of Akitaro's lineage, it would be a pleasure to hear a composition of your own regarding the outcome."

"Of course, Tochimoko-sama. I will endeavor to provide some sort of record of the event, and if it is found to have any kind of artistic merit, then I will ensure that you receive a copy. Will you also be attending?"

"I shall be there."

Toshimoko stops in front of a cage with subdivisions for several hawks and indicates to the servant to place the hawk inside.

"Thank you for the conversation. I look forward to opportunity to listen to another of your stories at the Topaz."

Toshimoko bows politely.

Soshu bows deeply to the Crane daimyo.

"Thank you for your company, Toshimoko-sama."

"The pleasure is all mine, Soshu-san"

With that, Toshimoko heads back to the great hall.
