This fic is my very first Fushigi Yuugi fanfic. Please be kind... It is about Nuriko's childhood, from Kourin's birth to her death. If you don't like spoiler information, I would suggest that you not read either of these fics - they're both chock full of spoilers. Basically, this is an in depth look at Nuriko, and what helped to make *ahem* her what she is, today. ^_^ I suppose that you could say this is the prequel/prologue to Osozaki Blooms the way it's turned out...
