Yesterday, I got a rush assignment from Seijun. It seems there is aloose within Sakai, causing much consternation. He is skilled with the , and good at hiding amid the city’s alleyways and back-streets.
I tracked him to the Merchants’ Quarter, near our own castle. I tried to ambush him, but he was fast and wily. We spent an hour dueling each other, chains whirling in the late-afternoon sunlight, darting to and fro amid the frightened onlookers…
I finally disengaged from combat with him and snarled, “We’ll meet again!” before going home. It was not the sort of victorious experience I usually have.
Today, I am seeking him again. My skills must prevail!
