This is a farmers village. So there is not much here, but everyone seems to be happy. Their main crop is rice so many paddy fields surround the small village. There is a few merchants and an inn a mile or two down the road. But if asked nicely enough, some residents will offer room and board for a few hours labor.

A man with his shorts rolled up wades through the paddy fields. He's bent over at the waist, shuffling the immature plant into the mud below, his sleeves tied back with a thin cloth. Some older men watch from the bank of the swamp clustered on a wagon, "OIII! Kambei san, you'll work yourself to death." The working man, Kambei, stands up and looks over with a playful smile, "I'm fine," the big burly farmer who called his name walks over to where Kambei stands and pushes him from behind, "Let's go kid, you have the day off. You go home to your wife." Kambei doesn't resist and finds himself on the road chuckling, "Well If you insist Oboro sama." "Yeah go on and get the hell outta here! HAHA!" the burley man yells at the leaving Kambei. Kambei heads back into the village wear a small group of children to his feet, "Kambei! Kambei! Play with us!" one yells out, "Yeah!" the other kids reply. Kambei laughs as he bends over grabbing one of the closest kids and hoisting him onto his shoulder. "Alright! What should we play?" kambei says holding the small child with the same arm they were sitting on. "Let's play Samurai and Bandits!!!" a little girl calls out, "I wanna be Kambei!" she says triumphantly. "Heeeey I wanna be Kambei," a younger boy says. "Uh uhhh I'm Kambei, you were Kambei last tim," the girl replies. Kambei lets the child on his shoulder down as the children run away arguing about who will be who. As kambei heads down the street an elderly woman waves him over, "Oh Kambei, what a beautiful day it is," she says rolling dough. Kambei smiles, "Indeed it is Ms Masa." "Mind giving an old woman a hand? These old bones ain't what they used to be," the woman says whiping her brow with her wrist before slapping the soft dough down. "Not at all," Kambei says walking into the small shop the woman had set up. He grabs a small axe and begins to chop wood for the fire with masterful precision even in a simple stroke of the arm.

~Kaden appears from out of the distance. He is seen walking along a path that will intersect with that of Kambei. In a matter of moments, Kaden and Kambei will be in sight of each other.~

A man rushes over to the working Kambei, "K-Kambei sama, a strange man is coming into the village!" kambei wipes his hands and with a carefree smile says, "Now now no need to worry, he probably just needs some housing for the night." Kambei walks out of the shack and makes his way towards the stranger, "Hello sir, welcome to our village," he says bowing his head slightly, "We have plenty of rice and water if you need something to eat,"

~Kaden turns and looks to Kambei~

"No problem, my house is just down the street here, "
Kambei says smiling. He leads the stranger to his house and walks up the steps sliding the wooden door open, "Kagura, bring some water will you? We have a guest!" he shouts taking off his sandals and sitting near the fire pit in the room, "C'mon in, make yourself at home," he says a woman in a blue kimono shuffles in with a tray of a pot and three drinking bowls. Kambei shifts to a cross legged position as the woman kneels next him. She pour the man a drink and holds it out, " My name is Kagura Kyuzo, nice to meet you," she says with a pure honest smile. Kambei grabs a bowl and pours himself a drink, "So who might you be looking for stranger?" he says taking a drink.

~Kaden accepts the cup from the woman~
Thank you.
~Kaden takes a quick but long sip~
That hit the spot.
~Kaden takes another long sip and then turns to Kambei~
I'm looking for someone who can teach me something.

Kambei raises an eyebrow as he takes a sip, "And what might that be?" Kagura continues to smile as she refills the man's cup.
Posted 4/18/10


I'm older than i appear.
~Kaden finishes his cup and extends to his cup to Kagura to refill it~
If you'd please.
~Kaden smiles innocently at Kagura~

Kagura nods as she graciously refills the cup. Kambei laughs a bit, "Then I wish I had your blood, I feel as old as I look... maybe even older," he says jokingly.

~Kaden thanks Kaguro and takes a drink~
Water has never tasted so good.

~Kaden laughs for a bit and then turns his attention towards Kambei~
How rude of me. I have yet to introduce myself.

~Kaden puts down his bowl and sits up straight~
My name is Zerus Kaden. A pleasure meeting you both.

"My name is Kambei Kyuzo, the pleasure is mine,"
he says bowing his head slightly. Kagura shuffles over next to kambei and begins to drink her water, "So Kaden- dono, What brings you to our little village? I mean it is rather far out of the way even to be looking for whatever is you are trying to find."

~Kaden wets his throat with a drink and answers Kagura~
I have heard tales of a warrior who was of a class of his own. The stories have traveled far and wide. However, the stories somehow seem to end of have yet to touch this small village. That is what brought my attention which caught my curiosity. I would love to learn from this warrior from the stories told if i got the chance. It would be a true learning experience for me, and as well as a memorable memory.

Kagura looks over at Kambei to see his reaction. Kambei pauses before he drinks, "I am afraid there is no such warrior here, our village is full of simple rice farmers," he says taking a drink.
Posted 4/19/10


From what i have seen so far, that may be true.
~Kaden drinks a little before continuing~
However, you seem like anything but a simple rice farmer.
