"She paints her face to hide her face. Her eyes are deep water. It is not for Geisha to want. It is not for geisha to feel. Geisha is an artist of the floating world. She dances, she sings. She entertains you, whatever you want. The rest is shadows, the rest is secret."-Arthur Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha

Miomomo has always dreamed of being a ninja. Although her parents could not afford it, that didn't stop her from practicing everyday after working in the rice fields. One day she comes on home to find out she is being sold to an Okiya so her father can pay for her mothers surgery. When out running errands for her Okasan, she meets a teenager named Kakashi who agrees to
 teach Miomomo everything he knows. She starts to fall for him, and decides to work hard at being a Geisha too in hopes of catching his eye. She starts to blossom in the Geisha world, causing her to become popular. When she is asked to partake in a party for the Kazekage, Gaara, he becomes smitten with her. Will she stay with her sensei or find herself in the arms of the Kazekage?
