One of my companions, a Phoenix, reacted quickly and called upon the spirits to heal the fallen thief. Another companion, the young Centipede, charged up the hillside and rained lightning down on the enemy. Three of us re-mounted our horses and headed around the hillside apparently towards the bandits ambush. We rode down the bandits, capturing a pair, and returned to Wachimasu with our prisoners to resolve the matter of the stolen property. From Wachimasu we will be heading on to Seppun-sama’s Bon Festival Party.
