My original concept was that he was the prince's tutor. He evolved into something more like a chamberlain.
oh, thanks for the quick reply (as always) :)

RE: ゆきの物語 - Chapter 7

a little question about chapter 8
the only meaning for 老中 I could find, is "member of the council of the elders"

Not bad (good guess on the "how old are you" bit, and the last part is more like "walked to every shop, introducing Yuki to the shopkeepers"), but you left out the last paragraph.
lol... in fact it looked a bit too short when I wrote it here :D

ゆきの物語 - Chapter 7

Another chapter is done! I feel a bit lonely... it would be much more useful if someone else was doing it. I can't always hope for richvh to read every post and write all that's wrong :p Come on, join me! It's a very useful experience (and not as hard as I thought... using a bit of fantasy sometimes...
