It was a warm night, sometime in midsummer. The sun had set long ago, bowing to the Lady Moon and her glimmering stars. The light she cast was enough to make clear the landscape and all it held. One of the most breath-taking things in that very landscape was a towering structure made of smooth stone. The light of the moon paled against the light the castle seemed to give off naturally. Hues of pinks and blues tinted the white walls of the castle in an elegant fashion. Getting closer, one would notice the singular road leading to that castle. And at the end of that road? The castle's courtyard. Centered within it was a single simple, yet sophisticated square fountain. The light cast from the castle's inner chambers made the water within it glimmer with its reflection.
Sitting on the short wall of the fountain, a silver-haired woman gently let her fingertips glide through the cool waters. It was the first time that she had been there, and so was rather enraptured by the subliminal beauty of both things natural and artificial. Many a person had already left from the ball that was being held not too long ago. An event for the social elite, the woman sitting beside the trickling fountain didn't quite see herself fit to attend and so entertain herself with the waters.
Her attire wasn't as elegant those of the women who passed by, a simple white and blue frilled dress, but that didn't stop the songstress from offering each a warm smile as they left. Sometimes she'd get a similar smile in return, other times they turned their nose up at her as they crawled into their coaches. Regardless, Tsumiko continued to enjoy the waters in simple bliss. This place was like a dream. After a time, she began humming to herself, soft and gentle, last in thought and content with being entertained my them. By then, most everyone seemed to be gone as the castle's activity hushed.
The humming turned into a song, the lyrics from a lullaby that she was taught long ago as a child. It seemed only fitting at the world appeared to be drifting off to sleep. Tsumiko kept her tone low as to not disturb anyone near enough to hear. The last thing she wanted was to get escorted out of the castle grounds because she was being too loud. That would have been an embarrassing tragedy. One she'd rather avoid. But the atmosphere seemed just too perfect to pass up a little vocal practice. Hopefully she wasn't going to bother anyone.
