Saiunkoku Monogatari Bk 1 Pt 0Herein is the Story of Saiunkoku.
In the distant past, in the era when the demons of the rivers and mountains ran rampant through the country, in the midst of that endless chaos a single youth went out upon a journey.
Driving away the rampant demons, and with the publics peace and welfare hidden in his breast, he continued his endless journey.
Presently, eight sages gathered, deeply touched by those feelings. Ransen (Indigo), Kousen (Crimson), Hekisen (Green), Kousen (Yellow), Hakusen (White), Kokusen (Black), Sasen (Brown), Shisen (Purple) Named of colour, they were eventually called the Eight Many-Coloured Sages and commanding a mysterious power they saved the youth.
That youths name was Sougen. He borrowed the Eight Sages sagacity, built the foundation of the country, and opened the dawn of the peoples age and became the Founding King of Saiunkoku.
After Sougens death, the Eight Sages disappeared to a place unknown.
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
