[Day 27, Late Evening] Until next time (ask)

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.

She rings the bell, calling the servant. She asks for sake.

"Tomorrow might be a turning point, or it might be nothing. I do not know, all that I can say is that if I live I will continue."

As the sake is delivered she takes her cup out of her sleeve and as Kazusa does the same pours the both of them a drink.

"We can do no more than that, though I must say you can do better than just continue. I've seen you smile, I've seen you taste life in earnest. You might have less options, but that is still a marked difference from 'no options'. And if this Blessing persists...

Well, I suppose you are right. Tomorrow will be the turning point..."

"Then, to the future", she says and holds up her cup. "Kanpai."

She doesn't taint the moment by adding the rest of her thoughts.

Megumi holds up her cup in return. "Kanpai!"

She drains it in one go.

"I have already arranged that me and Oda-san will return to Medinaat Al-Salaam to settle my affairs there, and also to bring the Zogeku in contact with the Sahir for their golems. I'm not entirely sure if this will still be happening, as my standing with the Unicorn is not at an all-time high for the moment, nor is our treaty with the Mantis signed yet, but I'm assuming it will still happen. I will bring Shino along. The journey is not without peril, but at least he will be far away from the war here..."

"No, not yet. But I will certainly do so before the end of court. Not tomorrow however. The day after, yes, that seems best..."

She looks away.

"I'm sure everything will work out in the end..."

That might be as much to herself as her daughter.
