Rai being left with Roka and YUki asks, "So while there out what should we do?"

Yuki tilts her head. "Have the villagers go back to work and watch them?" She asks.

Rai shakes his head and says, "Without the soldiers I am not sure I want that many people doing something they dont want to do."

"Maybe... Why does Shogota believe the Korean is ahead? Have they examined any tracks?"

"Master Roka alerted us to his escape and told us that he had seen the Korean going down the road," the Soldier replies.

"As we had no idea how the Korean so abruptly managed to escape under our charge, Roka said he would give us the chance to redeem ourselves if we could catch him without his help."

Yuki puts her hand to her chin, seemingly pondering over something for a moment. Then she walks over to the villagers to tell them they can go back to work.

The villagers bow low and quickly reassemble on the field to commence digging once again.

Then the Village Elder and his two Advisors meanwhile, ask Yuki, "What would you have us do with the strange metal disk that covered the well?"

.... What? Roka would have told us about that. I think?

"That doesn't make sense..." Udo mutters. Suddenly, the. Outdoorsman remembers one of the many awkward conversations the group has and with the foreigner. Udo brings a hand to his face, "Crap... When did 'Roka' tell you this?"

"It was right after one of the villagers came to tell us that you Samurai were going to see something they had found in the field and that there could be trouble," the soldier replies.

"When we turned back around after hearing the messenger, Master Roka was there, and he scolded us for not keeping a closer eye on the Korean - pointing out that he had just run off."

Udo breaths deep, "Alright... To put it simply, I highly doubt that was Roka. The Korean has an skill in facades, as well as being odd."

Udo bites his lip, "The question is, where did he go? Do you know where the imposter went after he scolded you? Uh, additionally, did anybody go to into the forest?"

The soldiers' faces flush with a sudden realization of their failings.

"GAAH! Uh, no my lord!" they fumble, "He directed us forward and just watched us as we ran down the road... on our wild goose chase..."

"Yes, you were duped." Udo Kuwabara responds, annoyed at the current situation. "Quickly now, how long ago was this?"

With a sigh, he continues, trying to maintain an authoritative voice, "Find the rest of your group and get them back here, we need to find him. It... Is probably important."

"Hmm..." Yuki begins, "I think I'll investigate it further to decide what it is." She decides.

"It's made out of soulsteel," Jenna says, looking into the surface to see the trapped 'souls' within.

"Aside from being stronger and lighter than steel, the only other thing it does is record the anguish of those around it. If you look into it, you will see a reflection of the pain it caused the spirits it has come in contact with over time."

"It was about twenty minutes ago, sir!" one of the soldiers replies to Udo.

Then bowing, they turn and rush back down the road to try to catch Shagota and the others...

20 minutes...
Udo looks to Bleach, and motions to him, "Do you smell his scent anywhere?" (OOC: It says on the lion stats that they track by scent as an edge, so assuming here).

Once again grabbing onto his spirit bonded friend, Udo looks for tracks as he heads back to the forest, unless Bleach smells elsewhere.

Bleach takes Udo into the forest where the tracks left the soldiers and then disappeared.

Miya is nearby - apparently lost in thought enough that Udo's arrival startles her a little (*ahem)...

Bleach looks up and indicates to Udo that the Korean man's scent goes up from the ground at this point.

"Well, if Jenna already knows what it is there's no need. Let's just put it in one of our houses and decide what we want to do with it later."

Looking in the trees, Udo, Bleach, and Miya find no further sign of the Korean Lee. He's long gone it would seem.

At length, the Soldiers all come back and the Villagers resume the dig, while the soulsteel lid that was sealing the Spirit Well is tucked away in the house where Udo and his animals are all staying.

Deciding she could help speed up the digging, Yuki summons a water elemental and orders it to assist with the digging.

9th Day of Mid Summer 1303
Return to Sendai


With the Spirit Well opened and the mysterious soulsteel lid removed, the work recommenced.

Yuki’s Water Elemental proved handy at saturating the ground and extracting bones from the mud – shaving ten days off the time it took to finish the entire dig. Bones were brought up out of the ground over the next twenty days and the laborers loaded them onto the wagons, which had been brought from Sendai in preparation for their transport.

So many bones there were, that it took four more wagons – commandeered from the Village of Kurokawa – just to contain them all. After being loaded, the bones were then covered under tarps and bound to prevent losing any; as well as to hide them from curious onlookers.

Once everything was ready, the Samurai and company of laborers, with the villagers who had volunteered their assistance, left Kurokawa and traveled back onto the Emperor’s road and up to Sendai. Again progress was slow, taking nine days to reach the Fortress City, but the villagers once more proved up to the task, working hard and pushing themselves much more than the ill-fated untouchables had on the way down to Kurokawa in the first place. Perhaps it was a boon after all that the original group had perished under Jan Xian’s evil hand.

Entering the gates of Sendai and heading directly to the main Shinto Temple, the populace with passing curiosity looked upon the caravan, but was not aware of what lie under the tightly bound tarps. It was best not to cause a scene, nor to speak of the bones, until the Exalted Patriarch Sanjo and his high-priests had been given a chance to properly bless them.

Arriving at the temple proper, the Samurai were met by both the Exalted Patriarch Sanjo and the Wu-Jen Yunikawa (apparently, messengers had already apprised them of their entry into Sendai). Additionally, the Korean man Lee stood behind Yunikawa with the three vampire Samurai-ko that nearly always accompanied the Wu-Jen.

Lee had Rai’s Cloud Flute tucked openly in his sash, as well as a handful of Lightning Arrows in a quiver. Off the ends of his great bow hung thirteen squirrel tails and he actually wore a foxtail off each hip. He glared daggers at Roka but was otherwise calm and Yunikawa seemed to not sense (or perhaps just ignored) the palpable tension in the air between the two.

“Well done!” the Exalted Patriarch Sanjo declared with raised hands, directing the monks and Priests of the temple to take over the handling of the wagons, so that they could be brought into the temple.

“You have brought great honor to Sendai and your family names this day!”

“Yes, a great day it is indeed,” Yunikawa agreed – “But I see from the missing laborers, that it was not without some small cost. Rest assured that it was not a price wasted nor will it be ignored by the Ancestors.”

“Certainly not,” Exalted Patriarch Sanjo interjects – “Your families (and even those of the lost) will be blessed for generations on behalf of this thing that you have done.”

“Nevertheless, I am sure we have things to speak of,” Yunikawa went on, specifically addressing the Samurai – “And, there is the matter of the promise I made with you concerning the little one Kioko.”

“Good good,” Exalted Patriarch Sanjo replied absently, not really listening anymore. He was very eager to get to the care of the bones, as the rituals to cleanse and bless them would take nearly two days – “My Priests will take it from here, you are free of the Temple’s service, as are the laborers and soldiers. If you will excuse me then…”

"So then," Yunikawa begins, "I have discovered a tree in the Spirit World that grows golden apples - which are an irresistible treat to the Ki-Rin. When these apples are offered up to the Ki-Rin on a Shinto-blessed silver platter, the Ki-Rin come and you can bid them to carry off to some far-away place in exchange for the gift."

Here Yunikawa motions to one of the Samurai-ko and she takes an ornate silver platter out from under a white silk covering. Careful not to touch the metal herself, she hands it to Roka.

"Here is a Shinto-blessed silver platter," Yunikawa rhetorically points out, "Go and fetch the So-Kitsune child and I shall open a Gate for you to that tree of golden apples. There you can summon the Ki-Rin to carry you all to the Ancestral Palace in the Heavens, where Kioko can finally join the Celestial Host. They will see to sending her home to the timeline where she belongs."

Miya watchs Yuki leave before looking back at Yunikawa. "Excuse me 'Uncle', but I feel it best I be there with Yuki for Kioko, such a sudden change for her will be stressful." She then bows and leaves quickly. Hopefully catching up to Yuki and walking with her the rest of the way.

"Just be on you best behavior haha!" Yunikawa laughs, as if visiting the deified overseers of all civilization is no big deal, as long as you don't make waves...

"Oh, and Jenna, would not be welcome there," he adds offhandedly, "so she should probably remain behind on this one."

At Mama Shirahata’s house, Kioko was overjoyed to finally learn that she would be going home now. Tears welled up in Mama Shirahata’s eyes however; as she had grown to love the perpetually little foxgirl for the near decade that she had cared for her.

Keeping things on a happier note however, she hugged and kissed little Kioko and handed her the schoolbooks that Kioko had originally been found with.

“I love you both,” Mama Shirahata then said to Kioko and Yuki with a smile. Then to Miya, she added with smile, “and you’re not too bad yourself.”

Once final goodbyes had been said, Yuki, Miya, and Kioko, all headed to the Temple of the Ancestors to meet back with Yunikawa and the other Samurai.

Then, with a wave of his hand, the old Wu-Jen Yunikawa tore open a gate in the fabric of reality, leading to an ephemeral sylvan glen overlooking a lush green forest. Nowhere in Nippon looked so green, or vast, by comparison.

"I'll wait for you Roka," Jenna said, indicating that she would not be going with the Samurai this time. Roka smiled, but inwardly wonder how long this was going to take. He doubted that the Ancestor would fancy him summoning a demon to sate his Fiendish Lust up in their heavens, but who knew? Maybe there were some hot Ancestors up there he could hook up with... was that OK? Or would that just be gross (being that there were his Ancestors and all)?

Walking through the portal, the Samurai could see a short strange tree growing in the middle of the glen, hanging over a rocky brook of clear flowing water.

The bark of the tree had the look of red brass and the leaves were tinged with green and gold; while five shiny metallic apples of gold hung from the branches.

“Wow! What is this place?” Kioko asked, as the Samurai walked toward the tree.

No one could say really, other than it was some far away part of the Spirit World – Though words seemed to fail anyone to answer the little girl at the moment.

“Good luck!” Yunikawa called back though the gate – “May the Ancestors receive you well and grant your petition kindly!”

With that, the old mage turned away and the gate closed – leaving the Samurai alone in the eerily beauteous landscape.

"Well, let's head on quickly. We don't want to take too much time here." Roka says, still carrying the magical plate of blessingness, and motions to Udo.

"Can you get the golden apples?"

Interested, Udo bends down to examine the tree. It would be pretty cool to see if one could plant these in the regular Earth. Perhaps he can get some apples for their seeds, if nothing else...

He looks to Roka and blinks, "Err, yeah. Let me try something here."

Holding his hands out, the Forest Ward tries to manipulate a large vine to safely carry an apple or two much closer to the group. At this point, once can never be too careful.

Udo has no problem roping two golden apples with his vines. In fact, he realizes that he didn't even have to push (Surge) himself to do that - as if he is somehow completely in tune with this strange place...

The apple is much heavier than a normal one and the skin appears to literally be made of a thin golden foil.

"Yuki? This is not the time to be eating spirit apples."
 Miya says with caution.

Too late Miya -

The golden apple tastes amazing and the metallic foil-like skin actually melts in Yuki's mouth like spun sugar candy. It is simultaneously the most crisp and sweetest thing she has ever tasted.

Other than a nice 'satisfied' feeling that Yuki gets afterwards, the apple appears to have no other unusual properties...

"Hey," Kioko protests, "can I have an apple too?"

"Chirp!" the little chibbi-cloud readily agrees.

Roka looks sadly at the child.

"I'm sorry, Kioko, but if you eat one, we won't have enough to get to your home!" He says. "Or at least, I think so."

Roka then takes the apples remaining from Udo, and puts them on the platter of magical blessing.

Udo, feeling empowered in the area, frowns at the fact that he'll probably have to leave soon. "Well, this has been pretty easy so far..."
An orchard of these would be very, very neat. If only for their aesthetic value. Udo takes a couple of moments to inspect the tree, trying to figure out where would be the best place to plant it before he speaks.

Seeing how Roka rudefully grabbed his apples, he directs his vines to get 1 more apple, and slips it into his waterproof case. "Uh, how were they, Yuki?"

"Really sweet and tasty." Yuki answers. She debates eating another one, but figures she probably should eat too many apples from such a tree.
