Sengoku Horizon

Look towards the Horizon

The Warring States Period: Fierce warlords fought for control of Japan, and many would perish. When a warrior falls, where does the passion they once held go? Possibly into something dear such as a favorite weapon or heirloom. These heirlooms have been labeled as “relics”, and those that carry them are labeled as “Scions." Recently more and more of these special relics have been activating, signaling the start of a great change as ancient power meets the modern world!

Now For The Local News, 02/17/2018 The Chinese delegation have now arrived at the city of Edo. They have come to learn more about the state of Japan, the Shogunate, and it's Scions. We will be having a Lunar New Year's celebration, a school dance, and a combat tournament with them!

You know that warm and fuzzy feeling you get when everything's feels just right? Yumiko was that kind of feeling, embodied. She had a general state of being that made one feel better, all around. Roshi supposed it was part of who she was, to be not just one of wise and well-crafted word, but also a master of tone and inflection - or just the right age - to invoke a gentle feel-good aura around her. The young artist gave her a pleasant nod after she spoke.

"Thank you, Yumiko-chan."

It was just after this that one of the other girls - Eriko, wasn't it? - spoke of not knowing how things will be in the near future, so that they should make the best of it while they can, though she admitted that she wasn't sure exactly how to go about doing that. Roshi had to chuckle mirthfully at the statement.

"You're absolutely right, though. We should enjoy ourselves on this trip the most we can."

And because she'd mentioned crafting poetry with Yumiko, Roshi decided to focus back on Kai for a moment, who'd mellowed out once he'd been assured that he was not ruining the mood. His eyes may have been Serious Business, but they were seriously healed and dealt with, as well. He should be in relief mode, which was why after assuring him that the eye didn't hurt anymore, Kai went over to Suishoku to thank her before moving on.

Roshi watched him move along further, crossing the bridge and going over to a tree to sit down. After a moment or two of idly listening to some of the other conversations, he quietly made his way over to join him. Now, you look at these two and you figure, well, they don't have much in common except that they were both well-known by Suishoku. Kai was an Elite Scion, an expert swordsman, and a courageous fighter - no question. Roshi was an artist, a craftsman, and a performer. He improvised and winged anything that he did not know. So, it would be hard to see any particular common thread between them...

"So, it's been a while."

...except for the one that nobody could see or be allowed to know. They had one other common thread, but you would think that one lousy mission wasn't really enough. wasn't just a simple mission. It was a rabbit hole, a deep one that led to a myriad of problems that had to be kept confidential. They knew something - someone - whose existence was a danger to heirarchy of Japan. And on top of that, they knew of who had held that someone, and why that person was wanted, and that such people would want them both dead. That experience...and all that followed...bonded them.

Roshi sat down against the tree at a different portion that Kai was sitting at, looking out among the scenery. They hadn't spoken in a while. It'd be nice to catch up.

"We're both here, right now, so things must be alright, for now. How've you been?"

Her attention was focused on the picture as she fetched her camera to review it and also bring it over for Mirai and Mikoto to review it as well. The set up was like a postcard and likely could work out like one if taken to a kiosk in Kanezawa or Edo. As the trio reviewed the photo for a moment, it was clear that something was on Mikoto's mind when comparing the three faces. While they all tried to smile their best, Mikoto's eyes lacked the telling wrinkles that accompany a happy expression. "Hmm, I wonder," Suishoku asked herself this while Mirai consoled the girl.

During this did Izuki-senpai came over in passing only he didn't pass by them. He stopped and bowed to her rather deeply in his apology and gratitude for his eye. The thought of receiving thanks at all since the summons to the hospital Izuki stayed at slipped her mind entirely. His bow also gave her the impression that healing his eye did a bit more than just giving it a strange coloring. "Ah, i-it's no trouble at all. Please notify me if something changes with it," Suishoku replied a little flustered to have this topic brought up so suddenly. In the end, she ended up smiling and bowing a bit in seeing him off to the other side of the bridge where the rest area was.

"Sorry for that,"
her tone now directed to Mikoto and Mirai now. For some reason she felt a need to apologize for what happened and was willing to explain any questions the two had of that encounter before following up about the photo to ease some of Mikoto's concerns. "But she is right. We'll have several picture opportunities taken. I plan to have some group shots too so everyone can have at least one photo they like to keep. We can take a few more here and have some tea to warm up a bit." Suishoku admitted with a small slip of what's to come with an eager grin.

"Well that's good, I guess." Kire took a deep breath. It was one less thing for the shogunate to have its greedy little hands on. Trouble was, that was another relic possibly in the hands of a clan. Kire wasn't completely stupid, if a clan got enough power, it might rebel. Same as the Ikko. The only difference would be that the clan would have better resources, and likely more allies. If one did rebel, everyone would be called upon to make their allegiances known.

Kire wasn't exactly a scholar, but the clans rarely seemed to be pleased with their current lots in life. That also didn't put into consideration matters of honor or owed favors or any of that nonsense that seemed to get a noble up in the morning. It was never as simple as it ought to be and a war could make the precarious place the country already was in even worse. He breathed out slowly. It wasn't his problem.

"I wonder if they got the clothes and the armor. It'd be a real shame if those were also lost. Not to mention the cultural significance of a hidden shrine to one of their own." Or maybe the bodies of those who tried to break in before the two students were still there, bloated in the water, fouling up the tunnel, being forgotten and ignored. That wasn't his problem either. The Ikko had attacked, probably the investigations into a few minor excursions beforehand had been forgotten or discarded. After all, it didn't matter now.
