The Land of Watanabe has Many Traditions

Thursday, October 4th, 2007

The surprises just keep coming everyday for the 7th child.

Upon her travels to the Kingdom of her sister-in-law, it seems marriage in Watanabe is no simple task.

While doing some research with her brother, Taiki, she realized that Kaito’s marriage to Ayumi was no easy task. It is the Watanabe Tradition that the engagement between two royals will require gifts to the bride from the groom. He must present her with sets of jewels following the order of 2’s (either 2 sets, 4 sets, 6 sets, etc.)

If the groom were to show off to the parents of the bride, he must give her a minimum of 4 sets of jewelry in 4 different colors: sapphires, emeralds, rubies, and diamonds/pearls. Each set must include a necklace, ring, and a pair of earrings that match. If the bride’s family were to receive this gift, they must also give their gifts to the groom, which are in the form of wristwatches, also in the order of 2’s.

Such is the fate of a Watanabe blood line.

Taiki wishes to follow his brother’s decision in marrying in Watanabe tradition… But he does not have the money to do so as of yet. Knowing this, King Taiki therefore requires his daughters to marry in the same tradition.

It is a wonder, if the 7th child will be able to achieve the same…

The Inevitable…

Friday, June 1st, 2007


It seems that times have changed… The Kingdom of the 7th Child has fallen, and she is forced to flee to the safe haven of Hamano.

Though this sudden turn of events is still uncertain, it is a big possibility. Her father, the King, and mother, the Queen have been telling her on different occasions that whoever else left in the Royal family will be taken to Hamano very soon, with the exception of her eldest brother, Kaito-san and his family.

It saddens the 7th child that she must leave, but due to the indecisiveness of the Royal Family with regards to her Fate, she now feels nothing… Her once strong spirit has become passive and quiet…

Is she still fit to rule as Queen when the time comes?

No one really knows…

This one thing is for certain…

Though her outside visage is emotionless, it doesn’t take much to make Hitori cry anymore… a huge difference from when she began her journey… 

What if it is “Goodbye”..?

A certain sadness form the word “goodbye” can twinge the heartstrings of the Human Heart and Soul…

She was of Royal Blood, fit to become her Land’s next Queen, and yet in sadness, she is parted from her King as she must continue on her journey alone.

There are times even the strongest forms of love must commit the ulitmate sacrifice and say “Goodbye”. But it is not the end, for there is time left for them to once again meet. How sad it is that they are to walk seperate paths… Hoping their paths will cross once again for a second chance…
