The future was uncertain. Despite knowing that most viewed him as a vile villain, Anzai was a dutiful member of the Explorer's Corps. The Admiral was calling the fleet to arms. He was a part of that fleet. While not being a warrior, he had grown into the role of a seaman. But he couldn't go off without seeing Akaichou. Just in case. His mask that he had purchased as held in his hands as he approached her home/place of work.

Dressed in his cotton kimono, in case he was thrown overboard again. He entered the building, looking about for her.

Akaichou found sleep eluded her the night before. She'd been worried for all of the explorers, but especially for Anzai. It was strange that someone she was just starting to get to know was already so important to her.

When she came downstairs, she saw him in the doorway and sighed with both relief and apprehension. She bowed formally. "Anzai-san. I'm so sorry I haven't been as available as I should have been. Mohan has needed help here with a few of his patients, and having nursed my own mother... If I had learned from tea ceremony I would have lived better in the moment."

"You have no reason to be sorry, Akaichou-san." His voice was low, somber. But his eyes lit up with the fire of the midday sun when he saw her. He returned her bow, before looking to her.

"May I come in?" Even though his heart screamed to just leap to her, to take her in embrace, politeness and decorum was maintained. He could hear his blood pumping in his ears as he looked to her.

"I would like you to have something..."

"Of course, please." She motioned for him to follow her as they went upstairs.

"I have something for you as well." Tristan stayed out from underfoot, sensing his mom was nervous.

Anzai was solemn, quiet as he followed Akaichou. He did what he could to hide his anxiety, his nervousness. Fingers gripped the mask even more tightly.

"You didn't have to go to any trouble over me, Akaichou-san."

"It's no trouble. Not where you're concerned." She tried a small smile but didn't know how successful she was.

"When... When do you leave?" She wasn't ever loud exactly, but there was a brightness to her tone that wasn't present as she asked. She moved to one side of the room and grabbed something off of the table, trying to look anywhere but at him in case she might cry. It's not what a samurai should see from those he cared for before going off to fight.

"We set sail in a few hours." There was a certain sense of conviction that came through his voice. He was no bushi, but Duty was the most important tenent to the Scorpion. He would fulfill that duty.

And his Loyalty to clan, to family.

Even Akaichou.

It was all bound to duty.

He approached her as she turned away. Even in such a serious moment, his own lecherous gaze took her in. Lingering for a long moment. In case it was the last time. A hand gently placed upon her shoulder, he moved next to her. "Scorpion wear masks to show that we all wear masks, we are just honest about it. My first mask, from my gempukku, was destroyed in the storm. I had one made for the masquerade to replace it. I would like you to keep it, should anything happen, Akaichou-san."

He would find her eyes, his lips curled to a small smile. "I will return for it, in all of my power, to you."

Her eyes took on a glassy look as she fought to keep her emotions in balance. "I'm so sorry your original was lost. I know I'm meant to refuse the offer three times, but in a time like this, I want you to know that I accept you for all you are and have to offer."

She took the mask gingerly in her hands as something precious, examining it and running her fingers across the face. She smiled. "I will keep this safe until you return, because you will return, Anzai-san."

After some time, she set the mask aside and reached for the item she had for this. "In many cultures, sailors wear a small braid around their wrist from their wives or the women they are courting. I hope you can accept mine." She revealed a small, neat braid that could be easily joined together. She gently touched his hand. "May I?"

"You may. Please." He extended his left arm to her, palm outstretched, his wrist exposed to her. His right hand went to her cheek, tenderly caressing her face. He stepped closer, looking to her.

"I will be bolstered with your token, Akaichou-san. I know it will protect me from whatever we may face."

She raised a delicate hand to the one cupping her cheek and turned to gently kiss his palm before fastening the braid made from her locks to his wrist. Perhaps it wasn't entirely proper, but when someone goes off to war, it is not a proper situation.

"Please do be as safe as possible. I know it's not a terribly reasonable request. I will pray for it, nevertheless."

He watched her with full attention as she tied the braid about his wrist. A part of him, when he was younger, would.have tried to use this opportunity to bed her before he left.

Maybe not so young...

But no. Not like this, not now. He could rise above base instinct. He smiled softly, bringing both her hands to his lips, kissing her fingers as he held them.

"I will, Akaichou-san. I promise."

She moved her hands to his cheeks and rose to place a passionate yet relatively chaste kiss to his lips. Fear overriding her shyness, she truly didn't think he would mind in such a private moment.

He certainly did not mind. Had she not been so bold, he would have. Taking her in his arms, he allowed himself to savor the kiss, the quiet of such an intimate moment deafening him to the outside world.

He didn't care that his culture would look down upon this, that she was considered outside of the celestial order. That would change when the Unicorn returned home. He knew that in his heart of hearts.

Just as strongly as his feelings about her. Pressing his forehead to hers, the kiss broken. "I cannot deny my love for you Akaichou-san. I do not wish to hide it. Not before this..."
