Yoritomo Ichido wrote:"Silence." Ichido cut in with his voice as cold as a crashing icicle. He let the silence bite in and chill. But his breath remained hot and Mei's touch kept its warmth. He did not avert his eyes from the destruction he wrought. "I did not fear damnation then, and I will not start by fearing it now."
He pulled himself up, eyes never leaving the shattered shrine. "Go. Let the others know I am thinking about it."
Mei feels a bit confused by her Lord's words, yet she bows to the ground in readiness.
"I'll do it, Ichido-dono! I'll send invitations for your words to be heard. When do you want to talk?"
"Would you like to hear some more important business, or have you had enough today?"
