[Day 18, EE] Questions (invite only)

Residence of the Elite Mirumoto House Guard. At least a quarter of the castle’s samurai sleep here at any given time. Accommodations are sparse, though not spartan. Most of the warriors here keep books in addition to typical mementos and necessities.

[Day 18, EE] Questions (invite only)

Mirumoto Renga waited for Nikako to arrive. They were to question Hikahime about what happened the night before. Nikako would be best in doing that; her training allowed her to get to the heart of the matter without much difficulty.

Nikako arrived rested and fresh eyed as requested. "renga - sama. Are we ready to begin?" she greeted him with a polite bow.

'Yes, Nikako-san, we are. I would like you to ask the questions; you are, by far, better at ascertaining the truth than I. Under Lord Shikei's orders, treat her as she should be but don't antagonize her. She and those she represents still have a role to play in all of this."

Nikako nodded "Certainly. I will uncover the truth of what happened, but until further notice, she is still general of the Imperial Legion. I shall show her what respect my duty allows".

"Then let us begin." Renga leads Nikako out of his office and down the hall to a stair way leading down. Heading down the stairs, they enter the dungeons. Immediately at the bottom of the stairs, Hikahime is held in a cell. Renga moves to open the cell and let Nikako in. "Hikahime-san, you are going to be questioned about last night's altercation. It would be in your best interests to tell the truth."

Hikahime blinks at the arrival of additional light, then nods. "Naturally, Mirumoto-sama."

Renga unlocks the cell and lets Nikako in. Once inside, he locks the cell again. "Inform the guard when you are done."

Nikako calmly stepped into the cell and considered Hikahime for a moment "Thank you Mirumoto-sama" she offered without taking her eyes off the woman. The door closed.

"Hikahime-san. Tell me what happend last night, and be as specific as you can. Any detail may hold importance, no matter how insignificant it may seem" her tone was firm but neutral.

"I wished to see the gardens, so in the afternoon I asked my escort to take me into the castle walls. I tarried too long, and when I returned to the gate, the way was barred. For loss of a means to find shelter, I searched blindly for a warm place to rest. As the evening went on, the screaming started."

Hikahime shakes her head, confused.

"What happened to frighten so many?"

My own included, no doubt..
