[DAy 8, Late Afternoon] Appropriate Preparations (open)

One warm spot in the village this winter is Kenichi’s shop where a makeshift kiln is lit at all hours. The place is unmistakable by the wisps of smoke emanating from the backyard. Kenichi, cleverly, has decided to exploit the heat of his trade, and has set up a covered porch against the wall of the kiln room. It acts as a makeshift tavern, and has become a warm spot for social gatherings.

"Then may I add 'eventual' in there, Kazusa-san?" Waito grunts. "'To eventual victory', is that acceptable? And if the Onyx ain't sent you here to crush our morale, why are you here?"

"Oh, make no mistake, that is what Emperor Hantei XL sent us here to do", she says. "To break your spirit until the blackened hellscape of his realm appears the greener pasture, indeed is the task given."

She drinks her sake.

"You expect Soshi-sama to just tell us? Really, Yoritomo-sama."

Yukari had stopped drinking some time previously.

"Where's your sense of fun?"

"When you do, perhaps you'll have your answer already", Kazusa nods before filling and draining her next drink.

Kazusa effects a chuckle at hearing Waito's lament.

"Do not mistake me, Waito-san", she says, keeping with informality. She motions for his cup so she can top it off. "We still have a ways to go, all of us. There will be plenty of glory to gain, untold horrors to face, and heartwrenching moments to drink away yet still...but part of us, that which remains human, will always find the fun of a matter."

"Or perhaps that's just the sake", she refills her own. "And so, at the very least, we can drink that sort of victory." She holds her cup out to him.

He sends forth his own cup, and a smile finds itself back on his face.

Kazusa drinks. She blinks once, twice, but is otherwise appearing to be in top form still.

Ten...!

"The Dragon, mostly...somehow they got the Brotherhood to agree to it, I haven't a clue how, or why", she says with a laugh. "This is no riddle, so I'll say it plain. It's merely not the proper time, but remember what I said to you in court, Waito-san. There is only one Rokugan...something to that effect, do you recall?" she asks lightly. "Or do you need me to whisper into your ear again?"
