Tamori Fifteen

She was fifteen, and a woman now. The marriage had followed a month after her gempukku, and she must be the luckiest Tamori alive. It was not proper to marry for love, and she had not. The families had been braiding heirs together since before the clan name changed. Her parents had chosen Hotaka-chan for her before her third birthday. But her ancestors had chosen her for a special blessing. Love had flowered where only duty had been needed.
