The empress dowager was not very fond of Michikane, but she always allied herself with him and Michinaga in opposing the former regent’s household, and in this case Michinaga also wanted the reins of power to be entrusted to Michikane. “If that should happen, it is all the more fitting at this time that the regency should be entrusted to Michikane,” said the empress dowager calmly. “Even if the empress does conceive sooner or later, we don’t know whether or not the child will be a prince. But if it is, he will certainly be crown prince.
He thought it little wonder that those who served other noble ladies felt neglected by comparison. Michinaga naturally wanted to know everything about the empress in order to raise his own eldest daughter, Shòshi, into a perfect candidate for imperial consort, and he used Kureha to obtain a detailed knowledge of as many of Teishi’s daily routines as possible. Once or twice a year Kureha visited the old nun who had been Michinaga’s nurse. After reverently leading the girl before the Buddha and having her worship, the old woman always admonished her: “You must never forget that it is through his lordship’s kindness that you are in service to the empress.
I can’t bear to look at him. If I said this to our older brother or to our grandfather, there’s no telling how much they might resent me for it. ” “It’s disheartening to see that you’re so weak-spirited, you who ought to provide the focus for our family now that our father has passed away. But the recent proclamation on the regency is only a formality at this point, and both Korechika and I think that the real battle is yet to be fought. Michikane is ill from the current epidemic, and is only getting worse.
