A young and naive painter's perspective of a geisha's subtle art of seduction.
absolutely amazing. i am in love with this story. you are a great author. your wording and style really suit my taste
how beautiful... i am astonished by the gentleness of this piece!
Beautifully written, and a great window into the lives of two people whose interactions might have been very different under other circumstances. Nicely done.
I don't think Tomoyo or Hinata can act like this. Aaah, it'll ruin their image in my mind.
But it's different if the woman is Sayuri or Hatsumomo, or even Pumpkin. They're Geishas after all. They're trained to be ones :D
Anyway, is the painter one of the geisha's customer?
This was really beautiful and easy to picture. :) I loved your descriptions on everything. Everything was beautiful, and I loved the ending.
'Like the dragonfly skirting the pond', in love with that line. Beautifully written, I keep writing pieces like these and can't bring myself to extend the story (or post them), the snapshots are just so complete in themselves so I'm glad you posted it as a one shot and left it there.
I love it :)
