・The 20th Story - Asagao
A princess lived in Momozono Residence. She was a younger female cousin of Genji whom he had longed for since his adolescence. Genji often visited her, but she snubbed him. Such heartless behavior added to Genji's love for her. So one day he wrote a letter of a waka poem and presented it with an Asagao (a morning glory) to her.
