[Day 26 EM] Chase the Fox / Bokens Before Breakfast (OPEN)

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."

Kyoumi seriously considers the hair presented before her as if surveying the entire realm of evil that could be inflicted upon it. But, rather than act out of that inner core of her pure evil princess heart, she instead removes her tanto, takes the red ribbon with which they have been dueling, and cuts off a length about as long as her arm...the difference between a sword and a spear.

She then gathers up Karasu's hair into a simple, manly knot and fastens it off with the ribbon. No bows, no flourishes. The ends of the ribbon fall under the tail as the hair falls, but still can be seen occasionally as the bushi moves his head.

Kyoumi cocks her head at Shiba Michio. "Well, I told Karasu-san I'd be the fox...but did you have a suggestion for me?"

"Well, by all means. But I thought you would like to try the two ribbon drill. Or have you forgotten the steps?" His tone is teasing, but also a little sad.

"You two may play if you wish."

Im still worried I won't survive the day. That I won't get to see Hitomi again. Sigh.

Michio pulls out a second sash. "Oh no, Karasu. This is a three person drill. She has to keep either Suzume-san or I from touching YOU without letting her ribbon go slack.
