D14LM- One More Session

A large chamber with plentiful screened-off alcoves for private conversations. Behind the governor's seat is a beautiful painted screen bearing the image of flowing waters and fantastical creatures.

The Empress listens, then closes her eyes and remains silent for a moment, clearly struggling to maintain her on. Her will wins out, because of course it does, and she dismisses Ansho with a wave and stands to address her court.

"Word has reached us," she says, her voice strained and silent, "of a battle at the refuge known as Shinsei's Last Hope, between the Emerald Champion's legions and a force of horrors from the south. The legion held, repelling the attack before much damage could come to that sacred place...but victory too often has a cost. The Emerald Champion, Yasuki Hachi, is gone from us now, giving everything of himself to fulfill his duty and protect the Empire one last time."

She pauses, letting the gathered courtiers process the dire pronouncement.

"His funeral will take place in Yasuki Yashiki, his ashes to be interred with honor alongside his predecessors. There will be a period of mourning, and following that we will see to the scheduling of the Test of the Emerald Champion. It is our hope that another hero of the departed Champion's caliber might emerge from that competition, as the Empire sorely needs such a person now."

With that, she sits. What more, after all, could be said?

It was as he says - Zoido was right. Is it time to begin evacuations?

Yoshihime is very still at the news. For all that this is vindication of every argument brought before the court for Hachi's absence, the Crab are forever in the position of being right while really, really wishing they were not. This was...a lot for the end of court, but at least she will be able to hurry home and enter the anthill of activity that will surely be mobilizing.

She also does not speak before the court to say 'I told you so.' Was the Empress's brother among the horrors they fought? She would really prefer not to be right about his probable fate either.
