anyhow, it's been ages since i last wrote anything or read anything, so i'm basically starting from square one. please excuse my initial segments (when i officially join in on the story)...once i practice enough, i'll get the hang of creative writing again. or so i hope.
without further ado, i introduce my npc's that are related to my character. please don't kill them off. also, can my main character work in the most happening inn in the story? she needs to pick up gossip to move her storyline. thanks!
Sima Cui Fen (emerald fragrance) 22 yo
Tang Bao Zhi (full of wisdom) 25 yo
sima cui fen is the lost princess of donghai. being the only child of the royal queen/empress, she was very well loved and sheltered. however, during the internal power struggle, she and her mother avidly supported prince ying as the rightful heir to the throne. fearing the mother-daughter's influence in the kingdom, the other concubines and princes plotted against the queen and princess. Subsequently, they had to flee the kingdom and her mother died as she could not adapt to the harsh life outside of the kingdom (err...in particular, outside of the palace). Scf learned to take care of herself and eventually encountered tang xiang feng's brother, tang bao zhi, who saved her life and married her. although happily married, scf always prays for prince ying's safety and hopes to return to the kingdom one day to help return the throne to prince ying. scf has been secretive about her past and even bao zhi is unaware of scf's background and assumes that she is an orphaned commoner.
Tang Bao Zhi is a very good man who is full of integrity, honesty, and loyalty. His good nature and mild manner earned his wife's love and his townsmen's respect. although everyone in town fears his younger sister's misfortune, they think too highly of him to avoid him altogether. when young, the fortune teller predicted that he was fated to marry into royalty, a secret which he keeps to himself so as not to offend his wife. believing that he married a commoner, he belittles the fortune teller's predictions and does not believe that his sister will die at 20 years old. his martial arts is currently above tang xiang feng as he has the advantage of training longer with their father, but even then, he is slightly below average.
(sorry, i really did try to find a smaller picture)
