~o o o o Welcome to Blooming Lotus o o o o~

Time of Day: Early Evening

There has been tragedy here, a battle on many fronts; the mind, body, and spirit were all used in a long moment of crisis. There was once a spider and her lover, their love was dark and manipulative. Together they were unstoppable while apart... they destroyed each other. Blooming Lotus was established outside of time and space for a jorogumo who's name is erased from time and space, Mistress was her alias. A traditional Japanese woman of grace in human form, she could not out run her past and she could not get away from her ex-lover Mr. Scratch no matter how hard she tried. After the collapse of the entire front end of Blooming Lotus' old building during a heated battle, Mistress died by her sister Ryuu's hand and in spirit encased not only her soul, but Scratch's soul in a statue on a lone island of land above the roaring river below.. The power of Nolan's soul still present within the Mistress after a necromancy lesson gone array, the chilling part of her soul that enveloped Scratch's was what encased their bodies after Spike released a fragment of Scratch's humanity hidden in a pocket watch. The chilled statue of Mistress and Scratch is standing tall at the bottom of the front steps, a shrine built there to honor Mistress and her sacrifice.

Mistress' sister Ryuu and her beloved Spike have inherited the entirety of Blooming Lotus Inn upon Mistress' death. The Wish Witch Yuuko came at the end of the battle to inform them of that fact as well as convey the arrival of a powerful psychic. After having a vision of Vanessa Courtez, Yuuko knew that the Korinian female would be one of Spike and Ryuu's greatest allies. Upon Yuuko and Vanessa's meeting, the Wish Witch sent her to Blooming Lotus, but never told her why. Little did the Korinian psychic know that she would play a large role in Blooming Lotus and become closer the residents than she had with anyone ever before.

Yuuko gave Ryuu a pink crystal lotus that contained a soft hum that reminded Ryuu of her dearly departed sister. At first, Ryuu was unable to figure out what it was or why Yuuko had given it to her as the residents of the time helped to clean up the battle debris feeling like they weren't getting anywhere. In the midst of her mourning the loss of her sister, Ryuu noticed that when she brought the crystal lotus to the Statue of Devotion where Mistress is encase, it hummed louder and glowed softly. Releasing a mass amount of energy when Ryuu placed the crystal in a perfect dent within the stone flowers Mistress is holding, the old building of Blooming Lotus was practically putting itself back together from the ground up... it was am amazing sight to watch inanimate objects fly about the Inn with new additions all over. The land was no longer burnt, but dirt rings in which Ryuu could plant more flower beds. The new building was standing tall by day three of the repair process in a matter of moments. The one thing Ryuu asked Spike to do for her is build a shrine from her sister's statue to honor and protect her. Of all the things Spike thought he would have to do, building a shrine was not what he expected, but was very supportive none the less.

Blooming Lotus is now harder to travel to from Banzai Village because the path was destroyed in the battle and is now a large drop all the way into a roaring river at the bottom of the waterfalls. Sakura Bridge is now the only entrance connecting to the forest other than the sky for those who can travel the sky. The Hot Spring is now larger than before and tips gently over a rocky wall and into the roaring river below.

~The Mistress of Blooming Lotus~



It was a beautiful night, such a clear sky with stars as bright as shining diamonds in the blue black that was the sky. Moonlight poured into the open sliding door that was the entrance to a small yet cozy sitting area of the Blooming Lotus. A light and cheerful humming was heard from a beautiful pale woman doing calligraphy. Brush in hand, ink pot next to the parchment, the owner of the inn let the strokes guide her hand in making the Japanese symbols.
The Mistress was making a new piece of art to go in the sitting room. By the time she was done with it, the characters formed the words, "Peace and Tranquility," such beautiful words to see written down. They meant a lot to this striking woman, figure full and graceful, midnight hair put in a traditional Japanese geisha style with a golden comb and chopsticks. The Japanese woman was also wearing a kimono, a lovely one at that, lined with lotus flowers and a light gray.
Satisfaction in her facial expression, she stood and decided to brew some tea while she waited for the words to dry.

Jessica the calm Pastry chef

The kitchen was clean, spotless, quiet. Some fresh baked goods laid on the counter top along with the plates they rested on. A young girl about the age of twenty-two was looking for the rest of what she needed, decoration. It was her first day after all and she didn't want to mess up. The plate had exactly five goods all different things, one a cookie, another a cupcake, some Wagashi. Jessi brought the tray of foods outside where the Mistress sat drinking some tea. Jessica could tell she was waiting for the paint to dry. She took a seat next to the Mistress and smiled. "Would you like a treat with your tea Mistress?" she asked quietly.

~The Mistress of Blooming Lotus~



There was a kettle and tea set on the table as Jessica decided to make her appearance, the Mistress smiled to her when she came from the kitchen. Taking a small sip of piping hot green tea out of a little gray teacup, the graceful woman set the cup down as Jessica joined her on the floor of the sitting room.
"Oh goodness, such lovely pastries Jessica I would love some," she said in a soft yet wise voice. The Mistress then looked to the different desserts and decided on an orange little Wagashi decorated with a flower. She took a small bite at first and got a rush of citrus flavor as she chewed the mochi dessert. "You've outdone yourself in Japanese dessert my dear, it is excellent," the woman complimented with a small smile. She then popped the rest of her treat into her mouth.
Once swallowed and done the Mistress looked to the newest member of her inn and asked, "Would you like some tea Jessica?"

Jessica the calm Pastry chef

Jessica sighed remembering the old days when she used to live in America, that was before she moved to Japan to resume the Japanese part of her career. She was in dreamland before The Mistress had woken her up. "Oh, thank you Mistress" She said and bowed her head. "I would love some tea, thank you" she smiled once more and sipped her tea.User ImageUser Image User Image
