After what I've had seen I was determined to find out what happened to her. Going back inside my room wasn't easy, but I had to because if anyone suspected anything wrong with me they would want to leave the house.
The next day while in my room I dropped a coin and it rolled under a large chest that was in the corner. Grandmother told me that it had been there since she was a child, so it hadn't been moved in years. Even though nothing was in there, it was still pretty heavy to move, when I pushed it just a bit I noticed that one wooden board was out of place.
When I finally got the old chest off of it I picked up the board and there was something below it. Wrapped around a piece of white cloth was what looked to be an antique jewellery box. I opened it and found old photos of men and women, one of the hair ornaments worn by the geisha, and what I think was a journal. Of course I was amazed and nervous, immediately I put everything back except for the small booklet. It was very plain compared to the jewellery box just a plain brown colour, even if I'm not all that fluent with the Japanese language I could understand somewhat of what was written in the booklet. (The name is changed because Grandmother preferred it) One of the pages in particular caught my attention. It read:
"Okasan (owner of the okiya) says I am doing better then the rest of the geisha. She says it is because of my young charm and gift for song." (Something in between) "I have gotten the attention of one particular man. His name is Murakami Katsuro and he is quite a successful businessman. By the way that he behaves around me I can tell that he might one day be my danna." "That is what I am dreading..."
The rest was to faded out to read and this on was the last page, the rest were blank.
When my family went to do some shopping I asked Grandmother about the whole thing. She got very nervous, but she gave in and apparently Grandmother knew the young woman, her geisha name was Sokuhei and her real was Haruko Oshiro...
