I have slain all the Black Star fighters in the village of Iraisho, as Kento told me to do. This morning, there was a meeting of the priests in charge of the operation, and I told them of my achievement. I was afraid they’d tell me, “No, you fool! The Red Star gang!”

I need have no such worries. Kaimei, the leading priest, says this is fine.

Unfortunately, it seems the message has not gotten to the samurai, who reports that there are still Red Star personnel in the area, and can something be done about them, please? There are several other details which have changed since she received her most recent instructions; since she has been out in the field, it is sometimes hard to keep her posted.

But I have confidence that the Iraisho operation will come to a successful close soon.

In the meantime, there is much to be done regarding the shrine to Bishamonten. I am likely to spend the rest of today bowing, praying, making the requisite, ceremonial motions with my ninja-tō, and examining the omens and oracles that the priest casts.
