Heian "dating" plot


So this plot is kinda following how cheating and polygamy was very common within the Heian court, so it's not exactly dating, it's just an easier way to explain this compared to the political courtship they had in place.

So your character finds my character, Kagami, to be rather attractive but she's known to be a married woman. However, being the main wife to a nobleman who has other wives to gallivant around with, Kagami tends to be neglected. In fact, she lives in a separate part of the estate from her husband, so it would be rather easy to conduct an affair. The only issue is, how to initiate said affair. Step one: Introduce a small amount of aggression. The perfect example would be to take her away from the public eye and somewhere more private. Step two: Show weakness. During the Heian period, pity was the same as love, and to show signs of weakness was very attractive. Sure, she will resist at first, but that was customary at the time. Kagami can't be seen as an easy woman and she knows who's really in control of the situation is her. Of course, she will accept your character's offer, and after several secret meetings like this, she reveals something even her husband doesn't know.
