The room was a stunning dining hall, formal, elegant and bright, complete with
beautiful walls, a small table, and cushions to kneel upon. A beautiful oriental tea
set lay poised perfectly, in the exactly right positions on the dainty little table.
The decor reflected artistry and sophistication, complete with combinations of
bright lacquered colors and natural wood hues. The large, elaborate wood sculptures
rested upon a lush, red, floral-patterned carpet. The inlaid ceilings seemed to
reach for the sky, and scented candles were placed on either side of the room.
Whomever had decorated this had truly been wanting to impress someone of great
importance to them. 

      The wealthy Nadeshiko family of Sapporo, Japan, were indeed desiring nothing
more than to impress someone of importance not only to them, but to the entire
kingdom. The emperor's royal advisor was arriving from Tokyo that very winter
evening to test the worthiness of their daughter to see if she would truly make a
good bride for the prince, who was now fourteen and in need of a wife when he
succeeded his father, the Emperor, whose health was slowly failing. Indeed, their
youngest child, Akimoto, had been training and practicing tirelessly for every day
of the past four years to surpass the qualities of the perfect wife. At twelve,
Akimoto was now prepared for her ultimate testing. As Nadeshiko was an honoured and
well-known name throughout Japan, the advisor was reccomended their name for the
choosing of a wife. 
No-one inquired upon Akimoto's feelings about this, evidently. Truly, she wished to
live as a simple country girl instead of a princess, carefree and free of restraint
or restriction, and to wait to find who she truly wanted for a husband. But then,
her feelings, hopes, and dreams, were completely irrelevant. What mattered was the
wishes of the Emperor, the Royal Family, and the important members of his court; and
the wishes and greed of her parents for power.

When the royal advisor, Tsukame Yoshida, arrived, Akimoto was brushed into the
kitchen. He was taking notes as he was led politely in by the parents. 
"It is very good of you to arrive so punctually, Tsukame-sama. Please, be welcome to
our home, and seat yourself in the dining room." Bowed the father and master of the
house, Nadeshiko Seitsu.
"The pleasure is mine, Nadeshiko-tono. Your acquaintence is breathtaking, as well as
your choice of a lovely wife." He smiled, bowing to Nadeshiko Takeshima. 
The three sat themselves upon the cushions, and began conversing about dull,
commonplace things. 

In the kitchens, Akimoto took three deep breaths, grabbed the teapot, and strode
out, heel-to-toe, heel-to-toe.

I like it, I think I'll just read stories on this club and I won't write anymore because
all my charecters are mary-sues or whatever you call it and my grammer is really bad and I
just can't write. It's not my thing.
