So this piece is based on the Japanese myth of Hanahaki diseases. It is cause by unrequited love. Flowers grow in the kings and they grow as the love gets stronger. Side affects of hanahaki are throwing up flowers and petals, and flowers can grow on the body. The are three ways to cure hanahaki. The first is to confess and the lover return their feelings. the second is to get the flowers removed surgically, but with the flowers come all the memories and feelings of the person they loved. The third is to die, the flowers will end up suffocating you
