Sensing she was of no threat to Revered Mother, she was allowed entry. Akira followed on her mother’s heels. She hurried to pour tea for her mother and then noticed her grandmother’s steady stare.

‘Akira join us for tea.’ Her grandmother opened the buchidan, an ancient wood hutch that housed the Orb of Tsuyo-sa 強さ that fortified the clan. ‘Pour a cup for our ancestors.’
