Was it just because of a lack of opportunity or by choice?
I think the only person Hana was on amicable terms with in her immediate family was her grandmother, but sadly she passed when Hana was eight, not long after her more vindictive grandfather. A lot of Hana’s prized possessions from her childhood were gifts her grandmother gave her - her kimono, a white cotton teddy bear outfitted in pink corduroy (she had that since she was a baby), and a jewel-encrusted music box being a few. Her grandmother had Bleeding Hearts planted outside Hana’s window at the family mansion because she knew that they were Hana’s favorites. Not much flora grew around Hana’s window after her grandmother passed, though.
Predominantly, Hana’s grandmother didn’t see Hana as a pawn on a chestboard like the others did. She regarded Hana as an innocent child, and though she was strict and tough she was quite good-natured.
Aww. Grandmas are the best <3
Mostly it was just never being around them, so by the time she got her first opportunity, she was just like, “Ew. No. I don’t really know what it is but I know it shits its pants.” Fray’s maternal instincts are buried deep if they exist at all.
