    Summary

    The one-tailed kitsune child sat disconsolately by the river at Ryuzo’s favourite napping spot, poking at the water with a stick. Ryuzo looked around, scratching under his straw hat with a grimace, but didn’t see any other kitsune nearby. “Hoi,” he said, leaning against a tree and folding his arms over his yukata. “Are you lost, boy?”

    The child jerked to his feet. Two large fluffy ears pricked up from his dark hair, combed to a bun behind his head, while a thick brush of a tail curled over his knees, the colour of the summer sun. He wore a bright yellow kimono to match, printed with a crest that Ryuzo didn’t recognise. The kid’s big eyes went from Ryuzo’s worn hat, down his haphazard armour, to the large brown tail. He blinked. “Tanuki?”

    Summary

    Ryuzo knew something had gone wrong when Mongol outriders caught up with him on his way to Castle Shimura and ordered him back to Fort Koyasan, but he hadn’t expected this.

    Jin stared at Ryuzo with a faint frown, visibly confused. He’d been stripped of his armour and tied to a post, but didn’t look injured. Other than the still-seeping wound in his hair from the blow that had knocked him out.

    “Jin?” Ryuzo said again for the fourth time. “You don’t know who I am?”

    “I’ve already said so,” Jin said, a look of annoyance crossing his face despite being unarmed, tied up, and surrounded by tense people bristling with weapons. Only Jin. “You feel familiar to me, but. I don’t remember.”

    Summary

    “Jin!” Yuriko peered into the spare stall in the stables. “There you are. Didn’t you hear everyone calling for you?” Her smile compressed into a neutral line as she noticed Ryuzo beside him. “What are the two of you doing?”

    Jin got to his feet, trying to remember if he was meant to be elsewhere. Forgetting his responsibilities and running off to play with Ryuzo in the woods was usually the way he got both of them into trouble. As he brushed the straw off his knees to stall for time, Ryuzo said, “Don’t be noisy. They’re sleeping.” He nodded at the ginger mother cat and her squirming kittens in the corner of the stall.

    Summary

    “Ryuzo,” Jin said with an anxious glance up into the tree, “be careful. If you fall, you’ll break something.”

    “I won’t. I’m invincible.” Ryuzo hauled himself up another branch and stifled a squeak as his foot slipped, nearly tipping him out of the tree if not for a quick grab for another branch. Below, Jin cried out at the same time he did. “Almost there.”

    “Ryuzo!”

    “Stop yelling, or you’ll bring your father down on our heads,” Ryuzo muttered.
