M3, Rooster 22, Samina, TN 15, VP +1k1: 3d10o10 13 (+3 Sailing = 16)

The fleet had been at sea for a few days and everything seemed in order. Edogawa had recovered from the sickness that had weakened him. This seemed like a good time to clarify what was expected of him. His duties as First Mate were clear, but there would likely be more after his failings in Dragon's Guard.

He sought an audience with Yajinden, first, though he was prepared to speak with Jama, himself, if required.

Jama would not grace him, but Yajinden was waiting.

"Yes, I suppose it's a good moment to talk, Miya-san. Come in, and close the door."

The quartermaster was poring over provisioning documents of the fleet.

He closed the door and bowed deeply. "I hope the journey has been satisfactory do far, Asahina-sana."

"Nothing has happened yet, and something is always bound to happen. As you well know."

Yajinden looked up from his papers and gestured to the cushion before him.

"Please."

"I've learned that lesson many times."

The Miya sat.

"A few too many."

"It's hard to disagree. Though your repeated acts of contrition don't exactly put you and others that depend on you in a better place, do they?" Yajinden folded hands on his knee.

"I do not think that will be an issue for much longer." he said. "I cannot cause any more harm if I separate and distance myself from others."

"That is your plan? To become a monastic hermit?" Yajinden's brow arched.

"I am not entirely sure, though it is a possibility." he admitted. "But, it was recomended that I not return. I haven't often agreed with my mother, but this seems prudent."

"So, of all the cases when you could listen to your mother's advice but didn't, this time, when you're furthest away from her authority, you decide to abide by it." Yajinden looked bemused. "I won't tell you you shouldn't, but I see some issues with this line of thinking."

"Asahina-sama, you advised me of how dangerous revealing even part of what I know could be. I kept it secret until a few courtiers cornered me at a garden party." he confessed. "Even if I defied her again and returned, what would be waiting for me? She's already taken steps, at my request, to isolate me from herself and others I could harm by association."

"Hmm, because leaving Rokugan for a time for things to settle has been such a terrible idea for those who have done it before." Yajinden looked at Edogawa intently, wondering if he would deduce what he meant.

He was quiet for a moment. "If I have the opportunity to return to an Empire where I would be of value, I will pursue it and prove my worth. I know what my mother believes I must do out here. What would you recommend?"

"To find Muhaki Saionji and make yourself valuable to him. He might need men like you for the challenges fate may cast at his feet."

Yajinden pierced Edogawa with his gaze.

"Recall this word, Senor: Xantellados."

At that, a brief flash of a vision of a foreign boy in opulent clothes shouting angrily at him rattles Edogawa. Near, there stands a man, red-haired, that somehow makes Edogawa think of Berena. That man is calm and reassures him with his gaze.

"Muhaki Saionji" He repeated the name as the memory began to fade.

"Then, that is what I'll do. Thank you, Asahina-sama." he nodded. "There is still much for me to understand. But, I am learning."

"Many answers to your questions lie in the history of the other side of the ocean, and the island we sail to."

Yajinden watched Edogawa.

"Cornejo was not a humble man. Follow the trail of his greatest ambition."

He nodded again. "I have been told that Hawthorne knew the island better, at least before he met Cornejo. He was familiar with it and insistent on stopping there. I look forward to seeing it for myself."

"So do I, Miya-san." Yajinden chuckled. "It'll be quite an adventure."

"As long as we avoid the waters to the north, apparently." he added. "Is there anything else I should know? Anything Hantei-no-kimi requests of me?"

Yajinden raised his finger to his chin.

"Why should we avoid the waters to the north?"
