Genji, taking the fact that a demon had attacked them when they thought they were safe, obediantly followed Miyra at a respectfu but safe distance, almost walking casually, with his body in a light enough posture to swtich immediately into a stance to protect his master.

Shuuya follows Genji, hands inside his kimono, staring at the floor, muttering to himself. He seems grumpy and confused as his world has changed so suddenly. These two had no idea of what was happening to him - divine blades taking over his body...evil swords of dark magic making him even more angry...maybe it was the dark sword making him think like this now...he wasn't sure. He felt a reassuring presence in the back of his mind - Doki Rinsei's presence was a comfort, true enough...but would he never be his own man again?

Mirya reaches the stream. She removes the sword she has been carrying at her waist and hands it carefully to Genji. She opens her mouth as if to speak, but bites her lip and turns away, moving closer to the stream. She then puts down her bag and turns back towards Genji, then sees Shuuya as well. She frowns thoughtfully for a moment, then kneels and pulls a folded blue kimono out of her bag. Standing, she holds it up against herself and sighs. Carefully placing it on a nearby tree limb, she then reaches into the bag and produces a black Obi, placing it with the kimono. More garments follow, then she looks to see whether the two men are still looking her way.

Genji catches her stare and his eyes widen in realisation and a blush creeps across his cheeks. Not wanting to make his friend feel uncomfortable, but not wantering his master to come to harm should he turn away, he averts his eyes respectfully from her, but keeps his gaze in the direction she is in, protectively. He waves his hand slightly to her to suggest to continue, he would not watch her change or clean herself.

Shuuya is lost in his own world - however he has managed to place himself facing away from Mirya, head slumped down to his chest.

Once the problem of modesty has been dealt with Mirya wastes little time; her bathing rituals are carried out with more haste then elegance, but she emerges clean and feeling refreshed, though very cold. She dresses herself in the clean garments, then combs out her wet hair. "Thank you, both of you" she says, "perhaps now we might seek some warmth; one of the others was talking about setting up camp." She sighs, "A fire would just help the demons to find us faster though"

As the group look around, using what little tracking skills and enhanced sense they have, they get the impression this area is quite safe and the previous attack was probably just one of the demons that got away when the road was cleansed

As the small group conclude that there are no demons in the immediate vicinity, Mirya sets about setting up camp and eating what provisions she has, offering a share to both Genji and Shuuya. After eating, she approaches Genji "Genji-kun, have you anything that I can use to polish this" indicating the sword she has with her, "I need to ensure it is properly kept until I can return it." A look of pain crosses her face, quickly repressed as she looks back at Genji

Genji helped his master during the setting of encampment (whilst tripping over various things, in general, and maybe a bit more than should be healthy in the ways of sudden coughing), helpign where he can and offering friendly encouragement to Shuuya, whom he felt needed some friendliness for all that he is experiencing.

Later, after eating, Genji sits in reflective meditation, until his master breaks him out and he takes in her question.
He nods his head and grins, speaking in his light hearted tone:
I am carrying a wetstone and some sword polish, as usual. Im sure Ying wont mind if I polish your blade rather than itself.

If Genji had picked up the look of pain that crossed her, he is careful of his thoughts and does not mention it. Instead, he bows his head respectfully and takes the blade with both hands, polishing the edge of the sword, and removing any sign of rust, with such dexterous fingers, it seems as though he is heavily acustomed to holding a sword, or at least, the maintenance of the blade. He is careful however, as when ever Shuuya looks towards him, Genji seems clueless, or accidently cuts himself slightly.

Eventually, he finishes the polishing and sharpening and examines the blade, careful not to breathe upon the blade itself in case of causing rust from the moisture of his breath. He then remembers something he was taught long ago...

Miyra-dono, would you approve if I tested the edge of the blade? he speaks cooly, and points with his free left hand to a stream, where leaves run by in the water, towards lakes and the sea...

Mirya watches the cleaning and polishing process carefully. At Genji's question she thinks for a moment before responding. "Yes, go ahead if you wish."

Genji gives her a smile and walks to the stream and very carefully, with astounding accuracy, thrusts the blade partially into the water. He waits and watches the flow with unwavering eyes. Eventually, he seems to find what he is waiting for as his eyes light up and a small leaf floats into the blade. It slices in half, neatly, the two parts drifting away downstream.

Satisfied, he pulls the blade out of the water and flicks it to remove the water, then wipes it carefully with the polishing cloth and bows gently as he takes it in both hands to return to Miyra.

A fine edge, well made. It handles the usual test well. he spoke with a cooled voice, with a touch of respect for the blade.

Mirya nods, "That does not surprise me." She shivers slightly, "Thank you for your assistance", bows in return and goes back to sit by the fire. She huddles there, staring into the flames. Feeling tears start, she hastily turns away from the others to hide her face as she wipes them away, knowing neither would embarrass her by commenting, but not wishing them to see her pain laid bare.

Genji uses the few plants he has found along his way and begins to boil them in a cup, stirring them into a broth. Noting Miyra, his master, and her pain she is trying to hide, he looks at the cup of tea he has just made, and with a slight smile and sigh, he picks it up and places it beside her, ecouragingly.

He then gets up, and whilst staying as close to his friends as he can, he looks among the plants he can find for wild greens that can be amde into the brothy tea he could make for travel.

Mirya picks up the cup and breathes in the scent of the tea within. "Th-thank you" She remains still for a few moments breathing in the scent before taking a sip. As she drinks she contemplates the mix of ingredients, recalling Kaede and Aimi's tea-rooms and the many teas they had served there

Genji smiles politely as she drinks and sits calmly on the ground, legs folded. SUddenly he is gripped by a fit of coughing, quite seriously, and covers his mouth. Once finished, he removes his hand to find blood. Calmly, he wipes the blood off his mouth and hand, resuming his meditation.

((The tea Miyra drinks is bitter, seemingly made of various green vegetables, but is clearing to the head, seemingly mentally soothing. It seems like it has medicinal properties of some form.))
