Kyoko’s chambers
~Clink~Toshiro placed down his empty tea cup and crossed his right leg over his left, watching Kyoko as she went to put the finished dishes on a tray. He had listened to her explain how the first gliding experience went here with Lucas, about how close knit the team was, but she danced around his questions on the Prince; Kazuhiko. It was almost like she was guarded, and that her relationship with him was private, which it was. He knew he wasn’t going to get her to freely admit whether or not she had strong feelings for the Prince, but he gathered that in time, the truth would emerge, one way or another. He rose to standing and stretched, and Kyoko went to open the door.“What? Getting rid of me already?’ He said, with a mock hurt tone. Kyoko was getting tired of his games.

“I have…a date.”

“Awe….can’t I stay and watch you go out?”

“No…you can’t.” That said, he knew he wasn’t going to get her to change her mind. Instead he strolled out, but kissed her forehead before he left. He smiled at her and said. “I will meet this Prince soon enough anyways. Then…I will have my answers. Laters.” And with that, he went off to find his own quarters. With Toshiro gone, she let out a huge sigh of relief and ran to get ready for her shopping trip with Kazuhiko. She showered and did her hair up in a loose bun, that has wisps that framed her face. She wore a day dress in a light cotton, blue in colour with matching shoes. Looking at her watch, she thought she might be late, and darted out the door, to meet the Prince in the designated spot. She only hoped he would be waiting.

The Imperial Castle
Looking back, Kazuhiko should have told Kyoko that they could meet at her room. He felt bad that she had to walk all the way across the castle to his chambers, so he left a little early to try and catch her halfway. She moved gracefully toward him looking stunning in a blue cotton dress. He smiled at her and held his arm out for her to take.“Well you able to contact your Senior Master Sergeant?” he asked as he led her through the main entrance and took a right toward the busiest part of town. Many citizens waved to them as they paraded down the avenue and Kazuhiko didn’t worry about the gossips; they could say whatever they wanted.The town squares which held a majority of the shops and outdoor markets were conveniently located near the castle. There were tables and displays of merchandise ranging from fresh produce to expensive fabrics and jewelry. Many purveyors tried to sell the couple their wares, but Kazuhiko graciously declined all of them. His made his way through the crowd, making sure not to lose Kyoko. The high end stores were located in the second square farther from the castle. Fewer citizens walked the streets in this area, but he recognized more of them. Finally, they made it to a fashionable clothing store called Ace and Kazuhiko held the door open to let Kyoko go before him. He had been here a few times to pick out fabrics, so the manager went out her way to make them feel welcome. Racks of clothes lined floor and giant spools of fabric hung down from high on the walls giving the store a very festive look.

Ace – Clothing Store
“Seems that my Senior Master Sergeant was sent already by my country.” Kyoko answered the Prince, as they made their way through the shopping district crowds, and headed into a store called, “Ace”. Kyoko would normally be gushing about the wonders and luxury of the elegant store, but Toshiro’s visit earlier had unsettled her slightly. For one thing he was incredibly nosy and he kept questioning the relationship between herself and the Crown Prince.“They sent Senior Master Sergeant Toshiro Ishago.”Kyoko wondered if the Prince was familiar with him, or his track record from her home country. A highly decorated man, he was known for his crass behavior and standoffish play when it came to those in higher authority. “He was here at the castle earlier, and came to see me.” Kyoko added, as she thumbed her way through a dress rack and picked out a stunning white dress. She held it up and then put it to her body, before checking herself in the mirror. “I love this one.” Kyoko enthused as she then looked through the racks again and quietly hummed to herself.

Shopping might not have been the Prince’s strong point, but Kyoko was quick to find a dress and matching bag that would be perfect for the club. As she paid for it at the counter, she looked back at Kazu and said. “Shall we get a coffee before we go back?”

Ace- Clothing Store
Kazuhiko separated from Kyoko and rummaged through the racks. He wanted to dress like a civilian that evening so he headed toward the short sleeve shirts. He picked out a simple, dark blue collared polo shirt that had the seal of the royal court embroidered on the left side. He listened as Kyoko spoke and was surprised that he felt a brief instance of jealousy at the mention of Senior Master Sergeant Ishara. It hadn’t taken Kyoko long to jump to conclusions about him and Kahue. Was that because she had been in a relationship with one of her own Senior Master Sergeants? He kept his thoughts to himself as he continued to peruse the shelves“He is welcome to join us this evening. His test will probably be the day after yours,” he said as he glanced over to see her progress. His eyes widened as she said she was finished shopping. Girls were supposed to take forever he thought to himself. He let out an embarrassed chuckle and blew the stray hairs out of his face. “Coffee sounds great. Just need to pick out a pair of pants real quick,” he said as he scoured through the displays of kakis. He chose a dark tan pair and headed to the register to pay. The manager thanked him and neatly folded his selections and packaged them in a fancy bag with the store logo on the front.Kazuhiko led the way out of the store and headed toward a coffee shop not far away. “This place it great. It’s famous for its wild flavors,” he said as he held the door for her. The small shop had a nice buzz and customers enjoying their various beverages smiled and waved in their direction. Kazuhiko ordered his usual chocolate cherry espresso and waited while Kyoko chose something for herself.

The Coffee Hub
Finding a table just outside the Coffee Hub, Kyoko set down her shopping bags on the floor beside her, whilst she opened her clutch purse to take out money to be able to pay for her coffee. Kazuhiko ordered chocolate cherry espresso, and Kyoko ordered a flat white coffee, no sugar. Glancing around as there were many patrons enjoying everything from small cakes to iced drinks, she couldn’t help but smile. Being out of the castle was a godsend, and in the midst of the sea of people, she was just another face. At least that is how she felt. She did notice however, that the Crown Prince had gained attention of many, and was being waved and and acknowledged by others. Kyoko had to wonder if he ever got sick of the attention. Gingerly, she reached up and drew back a stray lock of her hair behind her ears, and waited patiently for their beverages to be served.https://i2.wp.com/cdn5.agoda.net/hotelimages/400/400301/400301_121005124833311_STD.jpgKazuhiko had recommended this establishment for its wild flavors, and she had to agree, the air was scented with the richest scent of coffee she had ever imagined. “I think this will become a favourite spot for me.” She said with a smile. Looking back at the Prince, she needed to address the matter of the Second Master Sergeant. “I could try and get a hold of him when we get back to see if he would like to come to the club. I know he is always one that loves a good time.” That was said with a hint of sarcasm, mainly cause it was true. If there was trouble about, he was the first to find it.

Soon a waitress brought over a tray with their orders, and sat down the cups in front of Kazuhiko and Kyoko. Kyoko paid for the coffees and then picked up her cup and brought it to her lips, blowing on it gently.

The Coffee Hub
You didn’t have to pay,” Kazuhiko said as he beamed at Kyoko. He was unacustomed to being treated by others and was glad that she liked the coffee hub. He had been coming there for years with the other members of the Arsenal. When she brought up her Senior Master Sergeant again, the feeling of jealousy he had felt earlier resurfaced, but he fought it down. Time and the interactions between to the two old comrades would give Kazuhiko all the information he needed. He didn’t want to seem possessive to Kyoko.He took small sips of his favorite flavor espresso and stole brief glances at Kyoko when he thought she wasn’t looking. Their table outside provided a good view of the activity in the primary square and he assumed she must be taking everything in. After they both finished their drinks, Kazuhiko stood and picked up both his bag and Kyoko’s. “Dinner will be soon and I know my mother is itching to meet you. We might as well get it over with,” he said with a sigh.

The Coffee Hub
“She is?” Kyoko replied, kind of intimidated that the Crown Prince’s mother was so keen to meet her. It was understandable of course, since Kyoko was the arranged bride for Kazuhiko. This brought Kyoko crashing back to reality, after wistfully enjoying her coffee and watching the world go by from the table outside the Coffee hub. Thoughts came to dinner. Was it going to be a state affair? One of those with all the dignitaries and allies? Was it going to be formal? Was she going to have to wear another kimono that takes hours to put on? So many questions. Kyoko patted her lips with a napkin, then rose to standing, taking up her shopping bags and clutch. She flicked her head, and her hair tumbled off her shoulder, as she prepared to walk back to the castle with Kazuhiko.The audible sigh that he made as he told her about dinner, had her question just what kind of mood he would be in. It just sounded so…troubling. Kyoko kept up with the brisk pace of her fiancee, keeping to herself as she walked along. Still many people waved and smiled, and Kyoko tipped her head down as she walked, so not having to look back at everyone they passed.Reaching the castle, she asked Kazuhiko.

“Is this semi formal or formal for dinner?”

She was hoping for semi formal, but figured her chances were zip.

Town Square
Kyoko’s mood seemed to change when Kazuhiko mentioned dinner with his parents and it made him wish he hadn’t suggested it. He wanted her to feel at home, but she would have to meet them at some point. “There is nothing to be worried about on your part Kyoko. They will mostly be embarrassing me,” he said trying to set her mind at ease. “And as for the dress code, wear what you like. My mother tries to make every meal a formal affair, but you are my fiance and if you want to come to dinner dressed in a burlap sack, she would have to accept you.”They had arrived back at the castle in front of Kyoko’s door. No one was in sight, so he thought it might be safe to steal a kiss. He put his bag down and placed his hands lightly on her cheeks. Gently pulling her face closer, he gave her a deep longing kiss. Keeping it brief, he released her and picked his bag up off the ground. “See you in thirty minutes.”

Kyoko’s Chambers
Kazuhiko tried to settle Kyoko’s nerves about this dinner with his Mother tonight. He tried to say that if anyone was going to be put on the spot, it would be him. Course, he would say that, knowing his mother a hell of a lot better than Kyoko. Kyoko had only seen the Queen once, and that was the night of her welcome feast. This was going to be different. More social, and bound to be a lot of questions asked of her. Kazuhiko also reassured Kyoko that she could wear whatever she liked, though his Mother tried to make every affair a formal one, Kazuhiko was not going to insist that she get dressed up.Just reaching her apartment, Kyoko was about to unlock the door, when Kazuhiko decided to steal a kiss. It totally took Kyoko’s breath away and for a minute was just left standing there, dumbfounded. That was twice now that they had kissed. She made a girly giggle as she went into her apartment, after he told her that he would see her in thirty minutes. That wasn’t a long time at all, and Kyoko raced to get ready…..https://i2.wp.com/www.asianpopshow.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Yukie-Nakama-dressed-in-red-to-shoot-ads.jpg

The last few minutes, Kyoko kept checking the clock. Her nerves had started up again, and she was trying deep breathing exercises to try and calm herself down. It was only dinner after all. Not like it would be the firing squad….or was it?

The Queen’s Chambers
Kazuhiko departed quickly to his mother’s quarters wanting to catch her before dinner. When he arrived, her makeup and hair were being prepared. She looked over at him between the two servants that attended to her and smiled. She sent the two ladies away and signaled for Kazuhiko to sit in one of the chairs across from her.”It is rare that you grace me with your presence, Kazu.” Her smile was mischievous as if she knew a secret he didn’t and he couldn’t help but wonder what she had heard.”Lieutenant Takiharah will be joining us for dinner this evening. And I have come to ask that you make her feel welcome. Please try not to overload her with questions,” Kazuhiko pleaded bordering on whining. She made an expression as if she were hurt, but Kazuhiko knew his mother and she didn’t get offended easily. He was relatively sure she put the idea of an arranged marriage in his father’s head and that she had chosen Kyoko herself. It meant that she already knew everything about Kyoko that was public knowledge and any questions she asked pf the woman would be to purposefully make her uncomfortable.

Why do you use formalities, Kazu. You and Kyoko have been spotted together all over town,” his mother said nonchalantly. Kazuhiko cursed whatever cow hung around his mother who had spilled the beans. “I have taken a liking to her. She is a good, respectable woman, so please try not to scare her off,” he said standing up and walking back to the door.

See you at dinner,” she replied not responding to his request. He shook his head and left her powder room. Regretting the whole affair, he went to meet up with Kyoko so he could escort to the diningroom.
