Chigeru mutters some expository nonsense about how, using some ‘mind over matter’ technique, he as able to avoid suffering mortal wounds from the injuries inflicted by the worshippers of Vile.
Hey, mate. If it helps the story, I’ve got no problem with a bit of improbable survival.
Further, Chigeru confirms that there are evil-doers around the countryside, obviously sent to make our movements more difficult.
Chigeru asks if I wish to accompany him to Nara. Since the alternative is to go to the ‘disreputable’ city of bridges, I elect to allow Chigeru to act as my human shield.
Before we reach Nara, Chigeru kindly uses his ninja-fu to restore 2 points of Endurance!
He strongly reminds me of those idiots in the Amazing Race who give money to the people who are their competitors. Its one thing to save someone from dying, but this kind of assistance simply seems stupid (alliteration ahoy!)
We reach Nara, and I extend a genuine apology to my fans, because I just simply can’t do any more. I’ve been working for 17 hours today, and have a Trial tomorrow.
