She chuckled once, "Your men all seem to share the same confidence. Everyone of them I've met has spoken of adventure and progress... I hope they realize what those words can mean before it is too late."

"They can mean many things. But keeping them vague notions leaves much flexibility for defining them in suitable ways when it becomes relevant."

She nodded, "And does it mean anything specific to you? Beyond being a tool whereby one may exert influence over the simple-minded?"

"Perhaps. But we don't know each other well enough for me to divulge my deeper philosophies to you. I believe I still have kept things farther from my chest than you during our foggy rendezvous." He arched his elegant brow. "Reciprocity is a good guideline for developing a bond beneficial to both parties concerned."

She smirked, "I wasn't aware I was asking anything of particular secrecy... but perhaps there are things I could be helpful with... if you were to make what you are asking a bit more clear. I'm afraid my time away from the mainland may have harmed my ability to speak and understand vagaries in Rokugani."

She titled her head, "What is it I can answer for you?"

"Well, you could begin with telling me whether a woman knowledgeable about what we're about to explore is going to take hint from the name she uses around here being that of an Emperor's brother and actually join the Imperial endeavour."

"I'm afraid until this exact moment she was unaware of your destination. I am needed back in the presence of my lords at the earliest possible moment... which unfortunately was delayed this morning by an accident at the docks. Your path was not one I could have considered... seeing that I am duty-bound to return and report..."

She paused, "But now there are things to consider..."

"If you can consider them quickly, there is an examination held in what you would know as Feitoria for prospective captains and navigators. I shall be there. If you come, I will see to it that you are let in and allowed to approach it." He smiled. "I would look forward to witnessing your kind of expertise."

"A test? To select the leaders of your voyage?" She asked. "If it has anything to do with actual sailing... I think I would do quite well. You'd still want me there?"

"It has everything to do with actual sailing, and all related aptitudes. Prince Jama shall not risk the fate of this voyage by entrusting his ships to those who lack the necessary acumen. My offer stands, Muhaki-san."

"And what is it you are looking for in a leader of these vessels? I may be able to take you part of the way... but I have my other duties to attend to once at sea..." She asked.

"Deliver one of his vessels safely where he wants them and you'll have his favour. It's as simple as that. As a Crane I also have my loyalties to see to at home, but the duty to the Throne is paramount. That is if you are as much a Muhaki as I am an Asahina." Yajinden replied calmly. "Know that in his eyes your foreign origins are a negligible factor. It is your reliability that matters most."

She thought for a moment and then replied, "Perhaps I will take you up on your offer. I don't feel inclined to allow so many honorable servants of the Emperor suffer under inexperienced leadership if it can be avoided. Whatever I can do to serve the Emperor according to the wishes of my lords, I will diligently pursue."

"Excellent, Muhaki-san. See you soon then. Now please excuse me, I have some matters to attend to before I can head down the hill."

He gave a parting bow, casting his sleeves apart to make it graceful.

Bellena bowed herself and then moved quietly down the hill. Her mind raced on the facts in front of her. Thoughts of confusion and conflict, mixed with an understanding of the coercive elements in play, rambled around in her mind as she sought clarity.

Yajinden walked away to the House of Laurels with a small smile on his perfect lips.
