FC: Until We Meet Again | The quest for a lost brother
1: I start on my journey in search for my brother Ponyo. We were separated form each other a few months ago in one of the many continuous civil wars here. Things are really getting out of hand here with government being run by the Daimyo warlords, unlike Europe who was completely under control by their government. I used to work with the steel manufacturing, we both did, me and Ponyo, before we became warriors. I miss him so much, I just pray to my lord Christ that he is safe where ever he is. I suspect that he is not here in Japan anymore; he always talked of leaving this place. So at sun rise I will set out on the roads for the coast trading post where I will catch a ride across the waters to Korea.
2: After days of hiding out in one of the mini trading ships from Japan we finally docked out in Korea. I can’t say how happy I am to get out of my days of sea sickness and start my search in Korea. I visited one of the churches and it was very different from the churches in Europe, there were no Christian churches just Buddhism and Confucianism ones. I just want to pray for my brother, Ponyo’s, safety and health. I saw the King as I was walking down the streets thinking about my brother. A state official approached me and looked at me suspiciously, I tried telling him that I was in search for my brother and if he had seen him, but I don’t think he understood me very well. I guess there not much more I can do here, I’m moving on to China, hopefully I find Ponyo there.
3: I just arrived in China a beautiful and I must admit. From the stories I’ve heard from the friendly farmers, the Ming Dynasty has done wonders for this place brings them unity. I believe that they are like Europe in that they have Catholic missionaries. I am still on my desperate search for my brother, and I will stop at no costs. But speaking of money, I had none, so I got a small job making porcelain and textiles. They are really amazing creations, shipped just about everywhere. The paper and coins they pay me in is just enough to where I can continue my journey for my brother, it is hard to ask for directions here because I don’t think everyone is using the same language, so that has slowed me. Its fine, I think I will stay one more night, drink my hot cup of tea, then off to bed, for tomorrow I continue on to Mongolia.
4: I am just leaving China crossing over to Mongol. I am having no luck in finding my brother Ponyo. I have been on this search for many months now crossing over several nations. As I continue into Mongolia, I am welcomed into the home of a stranger, a rice farmer, they feed and clothed me, a disgusting traveler. This gave me hope, hope that maybe my brother had met some generous people like mine and had took him in. these people were very kind the were of Hindu faith. They are also a monarchy, just like Europe They told me all about their land, about how that even though I was a christen they had Divine Faith here so I was accepted and welcomed because they did not believe in slaves. I way on my way, I stopped by the market to pick up some cotton clothes, because I was looking a little rough.
5: I remember the people that took me in while I was in Mongol, I pray to God to tell him how thankful I am to find such great people. I hope I find people as generous in Safavid as I did there. I am tired and dirty from so much traveling. I was walking down the street and people looked at me in disgust, a lady with rugged hair and tired eyes approached me and told me it was because of the classes they had. Since I looked like a peasant, I was being treated like one. The people of higher classes tried to stay away from me because I was dirty to them. I noticed that Mongol had a Monarchy and it reminded me of how Europe also had a Monarchy and it helped me a little get over my home sickness. After I had a talk to a village woman about how Mongol was a Monarchy, I walked to the market and I could have sworn I saw Ponyo. He looked exactly like him and when I approached him, he turned around and I was disappointed to see it was not him. I don’t know how much longer I can keep this search on. I am tired and sick of being away from my home. I don’t want to give up on my brother though, I’m just thinking about how miserable he must be, lost and lonely like me. I just hope I find him before anything bad happens to him
