    Summary

    Driven to his knees, his katana sent spinning across the floor, Ryuzo blew out a ragged breath between gritted teeth and waited for the end. Beyond the open shoji doors that led to the courtyard, under a starless sky, the air was thick with the sounds of people vomiting and screaming. Ryuzo bit down the words on his tongue, waiting. There was nothing left to say.

    The snarling black mask Jin wore looked far less intimidating than the rage in his eyes as he walked closer, a bestial fury that Ryuzo had never seen Jin wear. Not even during that last disastrous ‘friendly’ duel between them. Not when they’d raided Mongol camps together.

    It tore loose Ryuzo’s brief determination to keep his peace. “Jin. I’m sorry.”

    Summary

    Ryuzo knew something had gone wrong when Mongol outriders caught up with him on his way to Castle Shimura and ordered him back to Fort Koyasan, but he hadn’t expected this.

    Jin stared at Ryuzo with a faint frown, visibly confused. He’d been stripped of his armour and tied to a post, but didn’t look injured. Other than the still-seeping wound in his hair from the blow that had knocked him out.

    “Jin?” Ryuzo said again for the fourth time. “You don’t know who I am?”

    “I’ve already said so,” Jin said, a look of annoyance crossing his face despite being unarmed, tied up, and surrounded by tense people bristling with weapons. Only Jin. “You feel familiar to me, but. I don’t remember.”

    Summary

    Jin’s never been malleable. He is strong, and merciful, and ruthless – but nobody could break him in a way he didn’t want. A blade will always be a blade no matter how one bends it. A sword is created for blood, for life and the taking of it.

    Maybe they were never so different, after all.

    Jin has always been a bit different. As the years pass, Ryuzo figures out how.

    Summary

    “Kenji,” said Kenji’s newest friend as they took a walk away from the sake brewery, “it occurs to me that you’re the least honourable friend I know.”

    Kenji clutched at his chest in a show of wounded horror. “Wah! Lord Sakai, I don’t know what you’ve heard, but there are a lot of malicious people out there. Whatever it is, I can explain.”
