Maiko Kikumaru is my oneesan

Far away from the city across the river lived a little girl who loved nothing more than to run barefoot through the golden fields of her home. Picking wild flowers and climbing trees were her hobbies.
 Free as the wind and wild as a summer rain. A childhood most could only dream of, that was the life she lived. It was a life full of bright colors, happy smiles, people who loved, and encouraged her.
 Growing up if Yumi was not lost out in the woods she was at home nose deep in a book. The winter Yumi turned thirteen she and her family were having a nice meal sitting around the television, when a maiko danced across the screen. The seed was planted and Yumi grew dreams.
 She and her family parted in tears both knowing this was for the best. Today, at age sixteen Yumi has become a Shikomi of the esteemed Hanafusa Okiya under the highly respected Okaasan Kikuyu. Perhaps one day, the wind will find her again and she will dance like the rain.
