Kasuga Kasumi and Toritaka Benkei‘s decade long courtship is the stuff of songs and pillowbooks and more than a few young woman have learned of romance from them. This is aided by the fact that the Tortoise Clan lands border the lands held by Kakita Hiroshi, Pillowbook Publisher, Super-pervert, and Kakita Toshiro’s Uncle and that Kasumi is on very friendly terms with him.

Kasumi moves at her own pace and neither her nor Benkei seem that eager to end their courtship and actually get married, despite pressure from both of their clans. Kasumi’s duty to her clan, especially given the recent influx of Gaijin in Mantis lands, and Toritaka Isaro’s insistence that his nephew and heir’s betrothed marry into the Falcon clan has helped prolong their long courtship.
