[Day 23, Early Evening] A Warm, Cozy Cell (Private)

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.

Tosaku looked at the two girls for a moment. "The night is still young you can still do all that. The tear we will figure something else out about it later." It was all he had to say to this. His voice though it was soft was stern. He would not claim to know or not to know what it was that Megumi was going to intend on using that tear on but that was currently besides the point. If he let himself think on it he was going to drive himself mad and he refused to do that in the first place. "Megumi-san head back to camp. Now. Soshi-sama if you wouldn't mind walking your mother back please." He said and then he vanished down the hall himself.

Megumi's voice cracks as she says those last words.

Kazusa bows to Tosaku as he leaves, then turns to her mother.

"Yes, of course, of course."

They don't walk in silence for very long.

"Only that you were caught", Kazusa answers. "The tear would have been useful."

She lets it go by changing gears. "Though honestly, hahaoya...your first, second day on the job as a Jade Magistrate and you are arrested? What will I tell your grandchildren?"

Megumi shrugs apologetically.

"That their grandmother has terrible karma, I suppose. That damn Seppun came in at the most inopportune time possible. A few seconds later and I would have refreshed my connection to the kami and he would have never seen me."

She frowns as she continues.

"You and Tosaku-san seem to have a good relationship with Seppun-sama however. He was... amazingly willing to let me go. Would you care to explain what is going on?"

"We have been ordered to aid in the protection of the Throne, under penalty of death", she says wryly. "Tosaku-san and I specifically have been given special permissions." She shows her a green stone netsuke, that looks like jade if you don't scrutinize too much. "It would appear that after the death of Toku Hikaru, things are being taken more seriously."

"I see..." She looks pensive. "And he has another of our Clan in his nets. "Seppun-sama must be pleased with himself. Still, it means he is expecting trouble, I suppose, and of the sort he does not wish to answers about or he would have gone to the Dragon."

She looks fondly at her daughter, trying to push thoughts about the upcoming duel to the side.

"Do you have time? If not today another day? I owe you a reincheck for our cooking session."

With a little frown and a quick prayer Megumi makes herself look her usual well-groomed and splendid self instead of having spend a night and most of the day in jail, wearing a ninja outfit.

"The 28th day", she says. "Invite me before then."

They walk on to the exit.

"And don't you have a man awaiting an explanation?" She smirks. "One thing at a time."

"Ah, dearest daughter, something tells me Oda-kun will be less than impressed if I show up dressed as a ninja and not having bathed and washed for nearly a day. No, that would not do, not at all. I mean, he believes me to be a simple shugenja and courtier. Perhaps he even thinks of me as gentle and kind."

Megumi frowns.

"I would hate for him to know otherwise..."

"In due time", she keeps the giggles inside. "But yes, please do. It would relieve my mind to know the quality of the skills being passed down to Shino."

She doesn't show a single bit of the utter storm of tears she wants to shed at saying his name. She has to show her mother steel for now.
