Shino/Kohza RPG

"Hai, Father Zuiko?" Looking up from the floorboards that she had been scrubbing, the dark-haired beauty in question immediately ceased all actions upon spotting her elderly overseer's face. His brows were drawn inward and his lips were protruding slightly, which always either indicated that he was displeased or immensely troubled. Now rising to her feet, Shino dropped her cleaning cloth and bowed. "Is there something that you need, Father? I am more than willingly at your disposal."

Folding his large hands into either sleeve of his satin kimono, Father Zuiko nodded his head before returning, "Thank you, Shino, but I am afraid that I have a rather odd request. You see, a young woman of about 18 years just arrived claiming to need a place to stay...she said that she was directed here from someone in Nagasaki. She's not married, divorced, or in any sort of domestic trouble, yet I am not one to turn away God's people. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind redirecting her?"

Shino appeared to be highly astonished. "But Father Zuiko...surely you're not just going to let her wander out alone in the streets! This town is a very dangerous place at night!"

"The child has made it this far, hasn't she? Either you do it or I'll find someone else" Father Zuiko remarked tightly, thus causing the ex-prostitute to nod meekly.

"Hai, Father...I'll do it. Send her in."

"Very good...arigato, Shino-chan" Father Zuiko returned, now bowing deeply before turning in order to fetch the young woman waiting in the narthex of the temple.

Shyly bowing to Father Zuiko once he came to fetch her, Kohza re-adjusted the knapsack on her shoulder and followed the balding man into the center of the temple.

Amidst all the ornate furnishings stood a tall and slender woman, a warm smile gracing her lips as she bowed before the Ryukyuan and held out her lily-white hand for her to take. "Konichiwa...my name is Shino. Who might you be?"

"Um...Kohza" the pirate returned, her brown eyes wide with admiration as she took the older woman's hand in hers and allowed her to lead her further into the temple. "Has Father Zuiko told you why I'm here?"

"Hai" Shino returned, smiling before releasing the girl's hand and taking a seat on one of the many floor mats. "Make yourself comfortable, won't you?" Once Kohza had perched herself upon the neighboring mat she continued, "Father Zuiko tells me that you've traveled a long way from here to live with us. Why is that?"

"I am on a journey to find someone who has wronged me" Kohza explained, her eyes now appearing to be terribly doleful within the soft lighting of the temple. "I was hoping that I could stay here until I figured out where he might be...will that be a problem?"

Shino bit her lip. The poor girl had so much hope on her face that she just couldn't bear to shoot down her proposal...not yet, anyway.

Instead of telling the truth, the ex-prostitute cheerily folded her hands in her lap and shook her head. "Of course not, Kohza-chan...here at the Tokeiji Temple we are very keen on helping those who are in dire need of assistance. Tell me...who is it that you are so fruitlessly searching for?"

Kohza looked at Shino as if she had just sprouted a third arm. "Forgive me, Shino-chan, but I do not yet feel at liberty to tell you such things. I'm afraid that I only tell those whom I can trust about the man of my past..."

Shino smiled before nodding gently. "Hai, forgive me, child...I suppose that I shouldn't be surprised by your decision. It is fully acceptable, so please only feel free to share with me what you must when you are ready. You see, here at the Tokeiji Temple, we only live to help and serve others."

Kohza smiled hopefully. "So...you mean I can stay here?"
