Look towards the Horizon

The Warring States Period: Fierce warlords fought for control of Japan, and many would perish. When a warrior falls, where does the passion they once held go? Possibly into something dear such as a favorite weapon or heirloom. These heirlooms have been labeled as “relics”, and those that carry them are labeled as “Scions." Recently more and more of these special relics have been activating, signaling the start of a great change as ancient power meets the modern world!

The school bang rang in the city of Nagahama. With a series of smiles the various girls in Kaori's class waved and wished her a happy afternoon as she gathered her books. Putting things back in her bag she put it over her shoulder and left the school. Waiting at the entrance to the school, the sun hanging overhead, was a man dressed in Azai clan robes. It was her bodyguard and childhood friend Yamazaki. He had been the bodyguard to her older brother Nobuyori and now her own bodyguard. As she waved and approached him her phone suddenly went off!

Very few things could compare in intensity to the anxiety Todo Shinsuke felt as he held his phone in his hands. The question of why am I so nervous? raced through his mind as he struggled to convince himself to go through with it. It wasn't as if he'd never called Kaori before today. On the contrary they'd spoken a number of times without issue or hesitation. How was this so different that he was paralyzed with uncertainty? Maybe because they'd just been chatting before; now he was going to actually ask her out to a major social event. Catching up with someone was far different than asking for them to accompany you to a dance where there'd be foreigners and representatives of many clans.

It didn't help that he wasn't alone in his dorm room as he tried to talk himself into making that call. His sister Inori had asked to come over the day before, and of course he'd forgotten that little detail. Rather than shoo her away he'd agreed that she could hang out if she didn't interrupt. As he stood there staring at his phone's display of 'Azai Kaori' with her number and photo, Inori was scrolling through ideas for her own outfit for the dance. When asked about it, she'd said only that she had no date but wanted to look dashing. Or something to that end, it was hard to tell when she was so excitable. It'd been a good five minutes just waffling between calling the Azai girl or sending her an email or just waiting on it. Long enough that his sister was no longer sitting on the bed.. but standing behind him! Before he could change his mind yet again, she reached around him and tapped the green 'call' button.

"Hey, what are you-!" he began to protest, but then the phone rang.. and Kaori's voice came through from the other end.

Once she answered, Shinsuke stood nervously as he asked, "Ka-Kaori-san? Um.. hello! I.. had something I wished to ask of you. If you aren't otherwise occupied on the day of the event... w-would you care to attend a school dance with me at Edo Bugei? I'd be happy to make all the arrangements if you want.." Nervous as he was, his language was defaulting to more formal verbiage - an old diplomatic habit picked up from his father. It didn't help that Inori was standing off to the side giving him a big thumbs up sign.

As Kaori's phone went off she gestured at Yamazaki to wait a moment as she pulled out her phone. Her bodyguard rolled his eyes a bit. He was more than use to the Princess being on her phone after all. As she looked at the phone she smiled wide. After all it was a boy she had become quite taken with over the past year. Pushing the green answer button she held her phone up to her ear.
"Moshi mosh." she answered. The voice on the other like was clearly Shinsuke's, but not in a tone she was use to hearing.
"Ka-Kaori-san? Um.. hello! I.. had something I wished to ask of you. If you aren't otherwise occupied on the day of the event... w-would you care to attend a school dance with me at Edo Bugei? I'd be happy to make all the arrangements if you want.." the boy asked. Instantly the Princess froze. A shocked
"EH?!" escaped her mouth. Her reaction was so strange even Yamazaki began to move but Kaori held out her hand for him to pause, her face gradually turning more and more red.

Yamazaki was older than Kaori and Nobuyori, with a daughter and wife. He knew very well what was likely happening. He just hoped in his mind it wasn't some young rebel he would have to politely ask to stay away from the Princess later on. With the Lord Azai often away at sea it was his job to take care of Kaori after all.
"Um...." she started, unsure how to answer. Looking at the ground she really wasn't sure. Other people walking by her looked at her strange which made her blush more and get even more embarrassed. Quietly she said.
"Um...uh....yes." normally, being of the Azai, Kaori was more decisive and strong willed. However it seemed that Shinsuke's words had made her just as nervous as Shinsuke himself.
"I'd....really like to go...with you." she said quietly, turning even more red as at the school gate Yamazaki smiled and laughed a bit, an action that got a resounding glare from the Princess.

Both the Azai and Todo sides of the call were filled with nervousness and embarrassment. Hearing a surprised shout from the other end of the line had shaken the Todo heir's confidence somewhat. Not that he'd been all that confident before Kaori had reacted. For a few moments he stood there clutching his phone tightly in fear that he'd screwed this up. Not only was he asking her out for the first time but he was asking her to a major social event in the capital. Maybe she wouldn't want the exposure and attention an Edo Bugei party would bring. It might be too much all at once, and he'd gone and ignored how she might feel about the whole arrangement.

It didn't help that Inori was hanging around behind him, watching intently. Of course she couldn't really hear what was being said on Kaori's end. Shinsuke's expressions and body language were all she had to go on, and it was excruciating for her to watch his anguished face. He had to get this right! Several anxious moments later her brother's body relaxed dramatically, a smile returning to his face. Was this the result they'd been hoping for?

"You.. would? Really? I'm honored! Well, let me just give you the information.." Shinsuke replied when she agreed to go with him. He fished through his pocket for the scrap of paper with the dance's information on it, but couldn't find it. After a panicked moment he spotted it hovering in front of his eyes.. in Inori's hand.

The heir sighed in relief while Inori gave him a big thumbs-up with her goofy grin. Once he'd imparted the event details he added, "If it's all right, I'll meet you at the dance itself. There are a couple things I've got to arrange on this end of things, but.. I really look forward to seeing you."

After realizing Inori was staring expectantly at him, Shinsuke rolled his eyes and added, "And Inori wants you to know she'll be there too. She's pretty excited herself.."

At first Kaori was extremely nervous, but as Shinsuke rambled on, also clearly nervous, it helped her smile a bit. When he talked of his sister being their the young Princess couldn't help but giggle a bit. Standing in the school gate entrance her bodyguard shook his head a little. He could only guess what kind of person was on the other line as Kaori approached him. Kaori slipped her hand over the phone and looked at Yamazaki with a look of delight.
"Shinsuke asked me to Edo Bugei's school dance!" she said, her eyes as large as melons. Her bodyguard, both the older brother and father type, smiled a bit.
"Good to hear. At least Edo Bugei has good security."

The words made Kaori pout a bit. Of all things that was what he was focused on? Though from his point of view it was a good thing. Having both Azai children in one place was dangerous for the clan. However, at least Edo Bugei was guarded by teachers and the Iga-ryu elite ninja. As Kaori pouted she then realized she had never actually responded to the boy. Getting flustered again she moved her hand away from the phone.
"Um, Shinsuke, I am really excited. Tell your sister I am happy I get to see her again, and um, I will tell my brother right away!" she said. Then her eyes went even wider, her brother! Who was he going with? Would he and Suishoku be going together? Could she tease him? The thought made her jump around even more as three girls passed her looking at her like she was crazy. Though who cared what they thought?

"Alright. I will meet you at the dance. I will have my older brother escort me!" she declared as suddenly her phone was taken away. Her bodyguard had a very serious look on his face as he put the phone to his mouth.
"Todo-san, I trust you are aware, that should anything happen to the Princess, it will cause a lot of unfortunate trouble for both clans. Please make sure to keep an eye on our Princess at all times." he said in a stern voice. Before Shinsuke would even have a chance to respond he then returned the phone to Kaori who gave him an even nastier look.
"Be nice! He asked me out!" she said, pouting more as Yamazaki went to open the car door.
