The following morning the samurai slept to their hearts content, with only Moshi Teruko being woken up for some much needed healing. Eventually they all headed to the court of Daimyo Doji Kari. When they arrived most of the magistrates immediately began to mingle, trying to ascertain info about the current political situation. Instead of doing anything related to words, Hida Sadaharu decided to try and drink all the sake in the room.
Eventually it got out that the group had found a [[:mysterious-scroll while rescuing the Shaiga women from the bandits. Two shugenja, scorpion and pheonix, attempted to gain more info on it from Teruko, but she held her ground quite well.
Seeing that Sadaharu was not enjoying the party very much, one mantis man invited him to a local sake bar, an invitation Sadaharu gladly accepted. While there the mantis tried his best to bring Sadaharu over to his side.
When the court began winding down Akodo Mokusei and Sadaharu decided it was time to turn in for the night. Teruko, on the other hand, decided to relieve some stress by hitting the sake house. There she interacted with Bayushi Bob, who, almost literally, swept her off her feet. Though she was very drunk, he did not take advantage of her.
The next day, the magistrates spent most of the day wandering around town. Teruko tried to further her understanding of surveying while Mokusei had an interesting conversation with a cute phoenix shugenja, Asako Yumi. That night Teruko decided she enjoyed Bayushi Bob’s company and found him again in the sake house. After a fair amount of flirting Teruko decided to go back to his room.
The next morning Mokusei and Sadaharu were woken by a servant of Kari who escorted them to a waiting room. Teruko was woken up by Bayushi Bob with just enough time to barely get ready and head to the Daimyo’s estate.
When all three had arrived they were told that there were more samurai than expected and that three rooms had been prepared for the unveiling. Each samurai would have to handle a different room. All three told their respective audiences that they did not know where the border lay. Naturally most of the samurai in attendance were upset. Mokusei did their best to repair the situation, but it did not help much. Teruko and Sadaharu decided to go back to the border to determine if they could glean any more info.
The next morning Teruko and Sadaharu set out to find more info. While they were doing that Mokusei received a scroll for Teruko. Teruko and Sadaharu were unable to find any more info about the borders location and decided to return to The City of Bridges. There Mokusei gave Teruko the scroll from the messanger. It informed her that the date for her wedding to Yoritomo Kazuo had been set, and it was in about a week and a half. Then another emerald magistrate arrived and after hearing of the groups exploits informed them that they were all to accompany Teruko to her wedding.
