Day 9 [Late Afternoon] A Life Decision (Closed)

Post by Kasuga Kairi » Sat Jan 27, 2018 11:42 am

Saori felt very much out of place being in the sake house. It was not a spot where someone like her would ever be in, unless she were chasing a bandit down. She tried to not appear uncomfortable and sat where her back would be against the wall and she could see who was coming in. She awaited her appointment being mindful of her surroundings.

There weren't too many patrons at the sake house at this time of day, but there were a couple.

Kasuga Saga swaggered in to the house, this time through the door. She greeted the server that met her, and all of the patrons on her way to Saori by name and with a cheerful demeanor who responded in kind.

It took a few minutes, but at last she made it to Saori's table, and bowed.

"Good afternoon, Saori-san. Shall we be drinking to celebrate your future in the Tortoise today, or to mourn your decision to go another way?" she asked with a grin before sitting down.

Fortunes this Woman is so improper! Do I really want to do this?!

Saori stood and bowed deeply to her. She was going to show her how a proper samurai-Ko behaves.

“This one is honored to meet you again Kasuga-sama. Shall we sit and discuss? This one is without funds for buying a drink for you, please pardon this one.”

Sata chuckles.

"Believe me, Saori-san, I know all about the struggles of ronin struggling with the taboo topic of money. Clan samurai simply need wave their chop and they are given food, shelter, and whatever else they need. In return, they serve their lord's interests, protecting the people, fighting in their wars, serving in their courts. But ronin? Obviously they're simply unworthy of such for they serve no master. Nevermind that they may have just been born ronin, rather than abandoning a lord. Obviously that's the Heavens punishing them for a past life. They're forced to serve for coin to survive, and then called greedy bandits with swords." she says, passionate about the unfairness of treating ronin in such a manner of the cuff.

Sata shrugs.

"But in truth they are individuals. Yes, there are some who really are just bandits with swords, but then there are noble samurai such as yourself, Saori-san, who strive to follow bushido in a world that is against them."

Sata smiles.

"So I don't mind paying for drinks, it's my duty as a host. Besides, there's a fun little collectible from this sake house you can commemorate your time in Tsuma with that I'd like you to have." she says, ordering two bottles of the house's specialty.

"But let's hold off on actually drinking it until you've made your decision. I would hate for you to think later that drink swayed it."

Saori nodded.

"This one is honored that you would offer this one fealty. This one humbly and graciously accepts."

She could tell that Sata was going to keep pressing the issue so she just decided to be out with it. She was just not going to be all flamboyant about it like her.

Sata grins and claps once at the ronin's acceptance.

"Excellent! We'll have you grown into your shell in no time!" she says.

The small black pots that the poisoned water sake house are known for are delivered.

"And just in time to celebrate your new life with a drink."

She uncorks one of the black pots for herself, leaving the other one to the ronin.

"To smooth sailing until the end of your days, Saori-san!" she offers in toast.

This is probably going to burn me...

"Kampai, Kasuga-sama."
