The Geisha World

"Oh! I know doing this is so girly, but I really need the money to pay off my textbooks!" said Misaki who was walking down an infamous street in Kyoto. Misaki answered an ad found in a newspaper that needed a substitute for someone who was dealing with a temporary injury.

The substitution pays him with a large fair amount of money to pay off his textbooks and only takes him a few nights. Misaki didn't want to ask Usagi for the money because… well there's no need for explanation since it's Misaki the guy who scolds the rabbit for buying him expensive gifts. Misaki wanted to pay off his books with the money he earned.

Misaki thought everything was perfect, he found a temporary job substituting and it pays a wonderful amount if he shows up for a couple of nights. However… there was problem, what Misaki didn't know is that he read the ad too fast with happiness he forgot to read what it said on the bottom.

Wanted: A substitute for a friend healing from a serious sprained ankle. Need a substitute Geisha.

Misaki read this print after he was hired for the job. Not only Misaki blushed a serious shade of scarlet, but he was stoned surprised that he was hired for the job. Misaki didn't know a lot about the geisha world but he did knew that they were found a lot in Kyoto and that it's was world only for women.


The Oka-san or "geisha mother" talked to him when he visited to the geisha house two weeks ago. She explained to him that a new trend was sweeping the traditional Japanese art world, a new type of geishas were making large amounts of money and bringing in all kinds of tourist from around the world to see them. These types of geishas were simply called Obana or "male flowers".

The Obana geishas were instantly popular with everyone male and female, the popularity started with just two attractive guys who were the same age as Misaki. Obana or the male geishas looked similar to average geishas, such as the skin was powdered or painted snow white, their lips were colored and they wore beautiful accessories on their hair.

But the Obana has differences, such as their lips were colored light or pearl pink instead of usual red, although in some days the males leave their lips naked with their natural color or simply put on chap stick. Instead the same old black hair color the popular color for Obana is brown, in fact any shade of brown will do! The hairstyle is not long but kept at a normal short and they are seen donning an accessory mostly that accessory is either a blue leaf or a purple clover. Sometimes the males are seen with their skin powdered or painted white or with their natural skin color as preferred.

They are often wearing the most beautiful male kimonos ever or wearing an amazing shade of blue, purple, or orange furisode kimonos for their clients. Obana clients were often women especially women who are fans of yaoi, but they have seen a rise of male clients wanting to see them. These clients are entertained just like geishas clients but in a different fashion. Instead of dancing to the shamisen, the Obana play the shamisen. An Obana geisha can talk to their clients, serve them sake or tea and play the ochaya game.


Yes, the Obana geishas are very popular, since they can bring cash and clients pretty quickly the other geishas and geisha mothers wanted to work with them and their Okasans (Yes they do have a "mother" just like the women geishas do) and they successfully did. Himeko Tanakura or Okasan as her girls affectionately call her was currently cooperating with an Obana mother named Yumina. One night her geisha "daughter" and her Obana "brother" went to entertain a group of clients.

She was playing the shamisen and her "brother" was dancing her maiko flower dance (since the clients never seen an Obana danced before) it was that these two are going to be paid a lot. However there was a problem the Obana are never taught to dance but to play the instrument instead and the geishas are strictly taught to danced carefully and gracefully especially that involves their feet moving softly against the tatami floor.

In a swift mistake her "brother" yelled out in pain as he felt his ankle hurting like hell and then suddenly finding himself collapsing to the floor with his "sister" and two clients rushing to see if he's alright. At the hospital it was confirmed that he sprained his ankle badly.

Since there was only two Obana geishas working for her and Yumina and the second Obana hurt himself badly there was only one left… that is until she saw Misaki Takahashi.
