On a mission, all the Shinsengumi swords were sent away together with Hasebe and Mikazuki. Kiyomitsu gets separated from the others and Yasusada is sent to look for him. It ends with Yasusada taking a blow meant for Kiyomitsu, and Kashuu has never felt so scared as he did right then and there. Izumi does his best to be the oldest brother but he doesn't know how to deal with this, after all, he let both Kiyomitsu and Yasusada die. He can't let one of them die twice! Horikawa wants to support Izumi and Kashuu in this time of uncertainty, but he doesn't know how to do so when both of them are falling apart at the seams. Nagasone just doesn't know how to help his kids because that's what they've always been to him, since the moment they became a part of the Shinsengumi till now. They're family, even if they already had families of their own separately (excluding the Okita duo) the Shinsengumi squad was a family of their own, and right now that family was on the verge of falling apart.
And soon he felt flowers growing.
