current mood: annoyed

Crap! I can't believe I just did that to myself! >.<;; I was looking for the various Shounen Onmyouji Drama CDs (found all but the second one) and happened to flip through book 17 (Kokuchou wa Ori ni Torawareru) for Saiunkoku Monogatari. *expletives deleted* I 'flipped' through the book to look at the pretty pictures and happened to stop on pg 262-3 where there's a nice pic of Shuurei and Ryuuki together. And so I read, and died. >.<;; Gah! I didn't need this right now! Part of it deals with a scene...... at the end of when she was still in Sa Province. Something that I'd long suspected was clarified, but the rest of what was said I didn't expect! I can't believe I spoiled myself like that. >.>

And of course I had to read the end to the novel. *sigh* Y'know, reading the first ~260 pgs plus any books before hand that you missed just *might* be a good idea... >.>

*laughs* I assume most, if not all, of it has already been revealed in the Saiunkoku community since the book came out a number of months ago (back in Dec?). ^^;

Basically, Shuurei tells Ryuuki that she found out from Dr. You that she can't bear children, so she wanted Ryuuki to promise to have Jyuusan-hime enter the harem as well. She then agrees to quit her position as an official and enter the harem as a daughter of the direct line of the Kou clan.

There's a bunch of other stuff I'm less familiar with that must've come up in the previous book as well as this one. I'm also going by memory, so I could be a bit off, but... There was something about her going to Kou Province and bringing the Kou clan around and having them return to their work. Shuurei talks to... can't remember his name Kouki was it? Her boss. He tells her that the emperor did something very wasteful by having her enter his residence and making her quit. Shuurei hadn't been beaten by anything that he or anyone else did to her, and the only one who could make her change direction was the emperor. He tells her that she's to go to Kou province as a party of four, herself, Ensei, Suou, and riou.

After she leaves, Shouka then comes before Ryuuki as head of the Kou clan and swears their support to him. Later when Ryuuki and Shouka are talking alone, Shouka's surprised to learn that Shuurei has gone to Kou province and that he must've missed her. However, Shouka realises that's impossible as a message would've been left for him at any of the border posts. Seiran then comes rushing in and tells them that Shuurei and riou have disappeared, and Ryuuki can only think of the story of the Rose Princess.

I guess I'll be picking up the next novel... ^^;

I'm not a member of the Saiunkoku comm, so that was all new to me. Thank you. :D
