Of course the home front could not be forgotten, while they had not spoken on a diplomatic level since the war had ended, Shanghai chose to side with the Imperium and that would not be forgotten.

To: Shanghai Department of Foreign Affairs

From: Office of the Empress, Imperium of Japan.

 

Greetings,

 

I have just returned from visiting the Imperium's friends in France and Snow Haven, I feel I should take the opportunity to reach out to those surrounding the Imprium in order to discuss a future that ensures a stable and peaceful Asia, as we all have a mutual interest in ensured that our economies continue to grow, I have realized that the Imperium cannot stand alone in the dangerou world we live in, even as I write this, another war in Asia has begun to our mutual north, I would like to ensure that we work together to attempt to prevent any further bloodshed than needed in Asia. If Shanghai shares my vision of a peaceful and prosperous Asia-Pacific and wish to meet with me, send and I shall be there within the hour.

 

Signed,

-Her Imperial Majesty, Empress Hoshiko, Sovereign of Japan and Joseon, Daughter of Amaterasu, Prophet of Takamagahara, Grand Cordon of the Supreme Order of the Chrysanthemum, Grand Cordon of the Order of the Paulownia Flowers, Grand Cordon of the Order of the Precious Crown, Grand Cordon of the Order of the Sacred Treasure.

With Jesse and his squad in Vienna trying to recover another one of Maelstrom's medallions and Lee helping their new Amur allies in the north against the Russian Army, Empress Mei needed someone to talk to besides Sterling who she had gotten quite close with since he asked to live with them and experience their culture firsthand. 

 

To: Empress Hoshiko of Japan

From: Empress Mei of Shanghai

 

During these dangerous times the need of allies is stronger than ever. I would be honored to have you come and visit the new Shanghai Imperial Palace so that we may have this meeting to discuss the future of our 2 great nations. Let us know when you plan to have this meeting and we shall make the necessary preparations for your arrival.

When the Empress of Japan arrived at the Shanghai airport there would be a limo waiting for her. The driver would take the scenic route to the palace so that the Empress could see how rebuilt looked like once they got the rebuilding finished. The Driver would be willing to answer any questions Empress Hoshiko had about the city on their way to the palace.

 

Meanwhile at the palace things were a little hecktic with maids running around making sure everything was clean and perfect for the Empress's arrival. Mei would look at Sterling and sighed. "Look Sterling, this meeting is really important and I think it would be best if you were not at it."

 

"I can understand why you don't want me there during the meeting but I still don't see the point of me not being there. The people of Shanghai and Drk Yul accept our true forms as dragons. Are the people of Japan really that different?"

 

"Well for now Yes they are. I understand what you are trying to say but I am still not entirely sure they would be as accepting of what we really are like the rest of the people here. If Empress Hoshiko brings up the topic herself I might reveal the truth to them but not unless I have a good feeling they will accept us."

 

"I have a good feeling they would accept us Mei. But this is your decision and if you still don't want me at the meeting than I promise I will stay out of their sight."

 

"Thank you Sterling. Soon the day will come when hopefully most of the humans of the world will accept us but we need to take small steps on our way to that goal."

 

Once Empress Hoshiko arrived she would be welcomed into the palace by the head servant of the palace and would be lead to the garden behind the palace overlooking the ocean where Mei would be waiting for her. He would also answer any questions she had about the palace itself while walking to the garden behind the palace.

The Mitsubishi SonicStar would make the quick hop across the East China Sea, from Tokyo to Shanghai in less than 45 minutes. She would be relatively quiet, disappointed in both herself and the governments that caused the war that caused such destruction in the first place, it pleased her that it appeared Shanghai had recovered almost as quickly as Japan had done, impressive considering the assistance the Imperium had received in comparison.

 

"What a beautiful Palace." is all she would remark, having studied up on the history of the place beforehand, upon entering the garden she would admire the view of the Ocean, momentarily considering making her own Palace upon the ocean, the smell always relaxed her. "Greetings your Majesty." Kazuko would say to Mei when she saw her, bowing respectfully. "I am impressed at your nation's ability to recover from the horrors of war, it is unfortunate we have been unable to track down who launched that cowardly attack, but it is fortunate we managed to prevent any further atrocities."

Mei sighed as she thought back to the time of the attack and its aftermath. "It has been hard but all the people of Shanghai have managed to work together to rebuild the city and palace and as you can see they are now even better than they were before. It is a pleasure to meet you in person finally and look forward to our meeting.

 

Before the attack the people of Shanghai didn't even know I was alive because of some bad people who were trying to kill me and my son, bad people we are still trying to track down ourselves right now but I knew the people of Shanghai needed me and that is why I came out of hiding to lead them in their time of need. After the attack on Shanghai by the unknown force that launched the nukes I knew the people needed a leader they could look up to and trust and as the wife of the late Emperor Brian I was the closest thing Shanghai had to a true leader since the attack besides our son Jesse who will soon become the Emperor of Shanghai once the time is right.

 

I can go into more details of my past and how I became Empress later on if you wish but for now lets discuss the reason as to why you are here. For many years our 2 great nations have had a love and hate relationship and I think it is time we destroyed all the hate and finally have a long and prosperous era of peace between our nations."

Kazuko listened intently, thinking of how strange it was to have such a terrible tragedy uniting the spirits of the Two Empresses, and while she acknowledged she would not be leader forever, it was still inspiring to see they had a connection beyond simply the normal Head of State. "I would love to hear further about your family's history, it is difficult to track down much information on your family in particular, and the Imperium's intelligence gatherers are very skilled at what they do." she admitted a bit sheepishly, "The Imperium has no interest in any more bloodshed than absolutely necessary, though I do not shy away from a fight if that is what is required." she said, hand moving to the Sword of Axum upon her side, patting the trusted blade. "Even as we speak, to the north the Russian Empire sought to subject the Imperium's newest neighbor, and we are working together with your forces and those of your ally in Druk Yul. While The Imperium intends on signing SEATO in the near future, I felt a personal visit as well as an individual treaty of some type would be beneficial to both of our nations, not just for the obvious strategic and economic effects, but to show those in our respective nations that there is no ill will shared between us."

"Agreed. We need to show the people that the war between Japan and China is truely over and that we can now enter an era of great peace and trade between our nations."

 

"Now I can say right now that there is a good reason as to why you cant find much history of my family. For a long time my family has been in China and Asia watching as the world progressed trying our best to not influence events any more than we needed to make sure that China was kept safe from any and all enemies. I first met Emperor Brian when his father Emperor Lang was still their leader, Brian was trying to take down a group of terrorists and assasins that wanted him and his father dead but he became trapped by them when he tried to attack their base. I rescued him and you can pretty much say that it was real Love at First Sight."

 

"There are many secrets nations have that would put them in danger if foreigners found out about them and mine was big enough to put me and my entire family in danger which is why when I was giving birth to my son Jesse, Emperor Brian said to the public that I had died during childbirth and so did the baby. He would raise Jesse in secret at the palace while I would leave the country until our enemies were gone but in the aftermath of the nuclear attack I saw that the people needed me and my son Jesse to return to them in their time of need and they accepted us and even the secret part of us with open arms as if we were truely a part of their families. It is the reason we were able to rebuild the nation so quickly and the reason our economy has never been better. It is something I wish to share with you but only if you are truely ready for it no matter how unreal it may seem."

 

Mei was serious. She really wanted to show the Empress of Japan that she was the Queen of the Dragons but only if she was truely ready for it.

"In recent months I have heard plenty of stories that most would believe to be crazy, I am open to the idea that not everything can be explained, Tokyo was targeted almost 1/3rd of the ICBMs launched at Japan and yet it was left untouched while everywhere else was struck, there are some in my country who believe I am chosen by the gods of the Shinto religion, while I have not spoken to them personally, my family is supposed to be descended from the Gods, so perhaps there is some truth to such beliefs. I can promise anything you tell me will not be spoken of elsewhere. Please go on, I'd love to learn more about the ruling family of our closest neighbor, even if it is as you say, hard to believe."

Mei would then turn into her white dragon form right in front of her. "There are many great Chinese and Japanese legends about my people which few seem to believe today but the people of Shanghai and Druk Yul accept our true forms and hopefully you can as well. My people are not the monsters that people from other parts of the world seem to think we are but I will tell you now that I will do whatever it takes to keep the rest of my people and Shanghai safe from anyone who would want to hurt us."

 

"My people were the ones who built many of the Ancient Buddist Temples you see in Asia and yet as the years passed by many humans began to hunt us down seeing us as animals or monsters. Those that survived the war against the humans fled to China and Japan and that is where most of our race still live today living amongst the other citizens of our nations as one of their own. I wish to one day reveal to the entire world the existance of our true forms but until that day comes we must continue to live in hiding so that those who wish to see us destroyed wont come after us."
