[Day 24 - EM] Bokkens Before Breakfast

A series of tatami floored rooms ring the dojo. At any given time, wooden and bamboo practice swords can be heard clacking or the sensei lecturing students. Peculiarly enough, compared to most dojo, these sensei speak with more questions than orders. Here, one corner of the ground floor has been reserved for guests to practice their own martial arts. At the center, a larger tatami floor spreads against a short conclave of bleachers. The east wall is occupied by a trio of shrines to Mirumoto, Shinsei and Togashi. A single stone at the base marks the grave of Mirumoto Hojatsu. Akin to the shrine in the village, a banner hangs with the words "Neither Will I."

Karasu approches Michio.

"Michio-San, I believe that Kenichi-San can take care of her for the moment. Would you be willing to talk with me for a bit?"

Karasu steps toward the door.

Yamada adopted the centre stance, it becoming easier and familiar to her.

Yamase turned a bit to Yamada as she went into her stance.

And then yelled. "KIIIAAIIIIII" Stamping one foot on the dojo floor.

In stark contrast Yamase's face is deadly serious.

Karasu smiles ear to ear but hold the laugh.

Good, good. I see what your doing. Clever Crab. I see why Michio is so fawned of you.
