[Day 25, Early Morning] A Game of Koans, Final Exam (Scorpion)

Upon the third floor of the Tenshukaku, the Scorpion Clan are given comfortable accommodations. In their common chamber, the lord of the Dragon has left them a gift: A apparently plain paper lantern of stark white. When lit, however, the inner lantern illuminates a vibrant red with the story of the scorpion and frog painted portrayed in shadow-relief.

The monk is here, laying a paper down before the Embassy, reverently setting up a small parasol to shield it from snow or careless spills. Then the monk is gone, leaving before anyone can speak to them.

"Some mourn loss, never realizing their dream yet lives. Others boast victory, unable to imagine their defeat. Both are fools. The game goes on."

The student was digging in the garden one day when he came upon a small stone tablet. It was very worn, and had writing on it in an old language from before the student's time. He brought it to his master, and laid it before him. "Master," he began, "I found this in the garden. It is very old and has writing on it. Can you read it?"

"Yes I can," the master said.

"What does it say?" the student demanded impatiently.

"Why are you looking for more knowledge when you do not pay attention to what you already know?" read the master with a smile.

Kazusa considers burning it, but instead sets it on the table in the common room and goes to court early.

Onasugamiso finds it some time later. "Silly monks. What does it worth to decide on why?!" She leaves the note back.
