Finishing her offering at the Temple of Benten, Koharu steps away with the scent of incense still in the air. Soon she would have to be at the garden party she'd been invited to. At short notice. By the Imperial Matchmaker.

It was stressful.

Having no idea what to expect, and not wanting to be noticed and pushed into some marriage of convenience for the matchmaker herself, she was apprehensive. Brushing down her pale blue kimono she made her way out of the temple grounds so she could head back to the wharf to change.

Maybe coming here will appeal to the air kami. Or at the very least, appease them.

The priestess walked hurriedly to the shrine, with writing kit and papers in hand. She barely noticed the Doji at all until another brush of fate occurred; the fastenings on her mask had been subtly loosened earlier. And with another gust of wind, her most prized possession was sent tumbling off towards the beautiful woman.

Are you kidding me?

The Yogo stuffed her belongings into her bag and hurried over tot he mask. And once more, she was before a representation of Rokugani beauty. "Forgive me, please, for getting in your way," she stated. She took a deep breath.

I get the hint!

"Ano, iie, it's fine." Koharu says shyly, stepping back to allow Akarei to retrieve her mask. She was worried that if she touched it then it would offend the Scorpion. She did not want to offend any Scorpion.

Dipping her head politely she remains there so as not to get in the way herself. "I wasn't in a hurry..." She adds a bit lamely.

"It was still rude of me to interrupt your day." She replaced the mask onto her eyes and then looked to the Crane. She was not meant to see me without it. Not a single outsider...

She took a breath. "The Temple of Benten? Were you also invited to the matchmaker's gathering?"

"H-hai, later today." Is it that obvious? Koharu tucks some stray strands of hair behind her ear. "Eto..." She stumbled upon how to politely ask the question in her mind. Why is a Yogo invited? What about your curse?!

The priestess gave a teasing smirk. "It would be better to pray there than for some other reason, huh?"

She then let out a soft sigh. Inattentive to her school mon, she announced, "Ah, my manners. I am Yogo Akarei and therefore I am honored to arrive at such a gathering. My ancestors must be pleased that I may finally be wed despite my family's offerings."

It really is an honour. She could barely believe it. Maybe this woman before her had some powerful allies? "Doji Koharu. How do you do?" She offers, giving a polite bow.

Akarei blinked behind her mask and then gave an apologetic smile. She returned the bow to the Crane and then addressed her question. "I have had a bit of an issue," she stated, true but obviously vague, "I have come to the Temple of Benten to settle the matter."

That sounded more suspicious than I meant...

Fortunately, Koharu didn't interpret it that way. "The monks say Lady Benten will give her blessings to those with an open heart and mind. Ano, I wish you the best with your issue..." She glances at Akarei's clothes and makes a decision. "Yogo-san."

"You are too kind," the redhead stated with a faint smile. She looked the Crane over and found herself at a loss regarding the woman's appearance. While beautiful, the woman before her was akin to a perfect model of a Doji maiden. The lack of blemishes was almost disconcerting; it made the priestess wonder if she had even met Koharu before.

But she would likely remember my red hair.

Akarei dipped her head. "I will make sure to open my heart and mind to her then."

"Hai." Koharu smiled pleasantly. "Good luck."

Thinking that was probably the end of the conversation, and not wanting to delay Akarei from visiting the temple, she bows.

"Oh." The priestess took an awkward step back and bowed to the woman in front of her. "May the Fortunes favor you, Doji-sama."

"H-hai, carry the fortunes Yogo-san." She had forgotten how religious minded the Yogo family could be. It was a nice attribute of theirs, or so she thought anyway.

Stepping away as the brief conversation seemed over she made her

/ Exit

Akarei let out an exasperated sigh and headed to the interior of the Temple. "The air kami have an interesting idea of how to match me to somebody," she murmured to the Fortune, "Was the Doji one of your favored? She was charming, perhaps too much so." She turned a bit red at her next question. "Do you think I could become charming like her some day?"
