This is really only a little scene, less than 15 pages, but it's an historical one, so quite a rarity. It's setting in the imperial Japan, I'm not very expert of that part of history, but giving the few details, I can suppose a pre-industrial era.

Suki is a young samurai and from years he almost worships Bashuro, his commander. But Bashuro was in a manlove relationship with another samurai, and Suki always took his love a secret. But now Bashuro's lover left the man to marry, and Bashuro is searching another companion. In what it seems almost a lover fair, Suki "applies" for the role, and Bashuro puts on test the man.

Maybe Suki is a bit too eager to please, but he has loved Bashuro in the last thirteen years and he doesn't want to waste his chance with the man.

There is nothing more, really, but the use of some particular words helps the reader to be involved in the feeling and setting of the story. Sedonia Guillone is not new in this terrain, I remember she told a similar story also in His Beautiful Samurai, when she described the love of Toshi's ancestor.
