Upon returning Kaiya went off to retrieve Sakia before having herself brought over to the Amaterasu's Grace. Seeking one man in particular for his assistance once again, perhaps for a bit of guidance even in these times when so many seem to have forgotten themselves in this place so far from home. With the woods of Rokugan surrounding them, supporting them, there was no better place to remind one of the roots that all these explorers shared and the customs they brought with them.

Stepping aboard the Grace Sakia found someone to announce their arrival to, inquiring about the whereabouts of Asahina Yajinden himself.

Asahina Yajinden admitted her quickly, in his room. He was a bit absent, maybe off-centre, as if his own thoughts were outpacing him, but tried to focus on her arrival and don his usual polite demeanour.

"Seppun-san, good evening. I assume it's an important matter. Please, take a seat."

Kaiya gestured for Sakia to cross in front of her so she might accept a seat more to the left, and Kaiya herself moved forward to a seat set before her. Once both were seated Kaiya looked to Sakia and offered a quick but sure nod.

"Seppun Kaiya-sama has come here today to inform you of a most unfortunate circumstance, Asahina Yajinden-sama. One that requires the most delicate of touch and the most appropriate of guidance."

"Please, Seppun-san, tell me what transpired." Yajinden remained calm despite a small furrow emerging on his forhead.

For this matter, Sakia may as well be involved but the woman was sure to show that these words came from her and no other. Sakia was directed to Kaiya's hands, looking to them alone as Kaiya met Yajinden directly. In perfect truth Sakia was Kaiya's voice in this matter.

Thus, when the woman's hands conducted the voice followed, "Seppun Kaiya-sama has the unfortunate need to inform you of the recent happening aboard the vessel known as the Walrus. Despite the events of earlier this day where the Lion known as Matsu Yasuhiro-sama was removed from his position as a First Mate of another vessel. It was upon Gusai Susumu-sama's will that this revocation of appointment not apply to that of the crew of the Walrus. Deciding that Matsu Yasuhiro-sama might serve better than the appointed Seppun Kaiya-sama herself, which took from her the ability to possibly have effect in avoiding the damage received to this Imperial vessel in it's voyage today."

Yajinden went silent. This was too much for one day, even for him. Still, he kept his On.

"Regardless of consequences the Imperial Admiral might apply to this situation, what kind of redress will you be seeking for your sake, Seppun-san?"

"No less than the proclamation of the truth in clear form so that there may be none who may find this situation to have arisen from anything upon Seppun Kaiya-sama's self. There can be no mistaking that this decision was the reckless lack of foresight on the part of Gusai Susumu-sama himself and the proclamation should be sealed with an appropriate apology," Seppun Kaiya allowed for a moment of rest, so that all may allow those words to hold truest.

"Seppun Kaiya-sama does not wish to make this another spectacle, another debacle that the Imperial Explorers must endure but it is necessary for her Honor and Name that the potential damages done to these very things all Samurai hold most dear be properly recompensed."

Yajinden took a breath.

"The need for such an apology notwithstanding, what would you have to say about the prospects for good cooperation with the captain of the Walrus in official capacities in the future?"

"This is not a man that appears to take his Imperial betrothed all too seriously," Kaiya paused and accepted a breath. Allowing Sakia to do the same. "In the past it was true that Gusai Susumu-sama has been a man Seppun Kaiya-sama would once have relied on when the time came to it. However, with events known to those within this room such future cooperation is clearly called into question."

"Seppun Kaiya-sama will, as any proper Samurai would, make best of whichever situation the Imperial Admiral feels best to move the agenda of the Imperial Explorers forward."

"This is probably one of the situations why the Imperial Matchmaker has instituted her representatives on this expedition..." Yajinden mused, not really keen on relaying an absolutely atrocious conversation he had had with Susumu about Kaiya. At the very least he was aware of the context. "So we should let them act upon their authority."
He quickly drafted a letter to Agasha Utsusemi calling for an inquiry into Susumu's disrespectful behaviour of his Imperial Betrothed and related recommendations.

"As for the other issue, I will plead with the Prince on your behalf to eventually assign you a post where your skills and talents won't be disregarded, Seppun-san. Unfortunately, after today one of the core vessels is in a very poor shape and there is no telling how or even if it can be restored..."

He looked at her attentively.

"An unfortunate thing to lose one of our fleet from the intercession by..." Sakia paused as Kaiya seemed to think of how best to place her words, "something beyond anyone's expectation. That it happened while amid our journey and in this foreign port is certainly to cause no shortage of problems for the Explorers."

Though the answer came as naturally as one should, Kaiya watched Yajinden as his focus on her seemed to grow. Noticing it and allowing that simple fact of her notice seem to call up whatever thoughts he might be having on the matter. As it appeared something was there that he wasn't saying so directly, at least not yet. Something he was looking for.

"Hence it will have to be addressed. Once the unexpected circumstance is dealt with, perhaps it will be possible to restore the ship. I know one man who could do it efficiently and with dedication." Yajinden nodded contemplatively. "His family problems and indiscretions notwithstanding, Edogawa-san has proven his merit and loyalty enough to the Prince and to myself to be considered for greater responsibilities than he currently is charged with." He further examined her reactions.

Kaiya had long enough to dare not allow herself to rise so quickly to the hope that Edogawa might very well be earning his place back withing the Empire, but there was a glimmer of it yet. Something she was sure to bury under her own continued reading of the other man in turn to how he was reading her. Yajinden was a man who had been playing this game long before her but Kaiya found that made it all the more important to attempt to match him in that aspect if she were going to even try.

"During times such as these holding onto individuals of true merit is all the more important for the good of the Empire," Sakia transferred Kaiya's words as always with elegance. "It is within his family's ability to confer most easily with those who control these ports to allow for what will surely be required from the locals to undertake the endeavor. Much more so than someone unfamiliar with the Gaijin tongue, certainly."

"If he is shown trust to take an independent role and be given greater responsibility, however, his position on the flagship close to the Prince will be vacant." Yajinden remarked, looking into Kaiya's eyes.

"A position appropriate for one who would do honor to it, as it is one of great Honor to be bestowed," Sakia relayed, though Kaiya's eyes were telling. Was it ambition? Or perhaps something else, something more. Leaving little to chance Kaiya knew better than to be too direct about this, at this time at least.

"I have sent missives for a meeting on his subject tomorrow. I hope you'll be able to attend." He nodded. "Would you wish to share more insights into what was revealed during the earlier meeting, with the surprising Crab?"

"There is more," Sakia said on Kaiya's behalf. "However, Seppun Kaiya-sama would wish to return to some of her notes to be sure before pressing forward with this information. As for tomorrow's meeting Seppun Kaiya-sama will be sure to attend. These are uncertain times and there is much that needs to be made clear."

"Very well. Let's discuss it again at your earliest convenience. I hope the delay won't affect my ability to handle the matter."

He looked at her curiously.

"Seppun Kaiya-sama hopes that this shall not be the case, but knows certainly a lack of certainty would do so," Sakia offered turning to Yajinden directly instead of Kaiya's hands so both woman might bow to the man directly.

He inclined his head back.

"I suppose we all shall get some rest after this turbulent and taxing day. Have a good night, Seppun-san."
