In very old times there was a country with very unhappy poor people and at the same time one family of very happy rich and wealthy people. To keep the poor people from going into a revolution the family, which was called the Hirako family, had an arrangement every hundred year with the normal folk: a normal boy from the normal people was going to marry the second oldest son of the Hirako's. It was important that this was a boy because then you wouldn't have mixed blood. Normally the children of the Hirako family married with rich children from families in other countries. It was also important that it was the second son and not the first, because it wasn't expected that the two would have kids, that was even impossible. __ It was one of those hundred years this year and poor Akemi was to marry one of the stupid peasants... He groaned as his aunt was getting him dressed for the big wedding. He didn't even know how is groom looked or how he was. He was just supposed to say yes and then wave to the people while holding hands. And maybe spend the rest of his life with the dude... "What if I just don't want it?" He asked his aunt who was very busy getting his clothes just right. "You know that you don't have a choice in this Akemi. Just make the best of it. Your mother said that she has chosen a right young man to marry you and they've been learning him etiquette for months" Akemi sighed. He was sure that teaching wouldn't make him less of a snob... Once a peasant always a peasant.
