gWhat a gorgeous garden!h
Seitaku freely extended his arm, and picked one of the sparkling red fruits from a branch. He then threw the fruit into a water bucket right beside him, and wiped it clean with a handkerchief.
gSo, Tai Taiho, please try one. There are
seeds inside, so please be careful.h
gI grew it, so nobody else should be troubled by it.h
Taiki, with the red fruit in his hand, stared blankly at Seitaku.
Taiki turned back to Seirai, flustering for a response, but Seirai was only frozen there staring with widening eyes. Taiki then turned his confused glance back to Seitakufs bright smiley face. Taiki had learnt about the decorum in front of an emperor at the Main Hall, but how should he respond in this condition?
Oblivious of Taikifs confusion, Seitaku reached out to pick another fruit,
and turned to Seirai.
gOh, how rude of me to let everybody standing! There is a summerhouse
nearby, so letfs move there!h
