This morning, Leland, Aoi and Ume’s dog were all sick. I gave them all some first aid. Fujiwara graciously allowed us to refill our water barrels.
Although the weather had been nice, it started to downpour again as we were preparing to leave. Ume and I, feeling the fittest, decided to seek out a cloud ryuujin shrine a short fifteen minutes walk away. We found it, without its head. Ume was able to fix it, with a little assistance. We prayed to the statue. – And I quote: “I’m very sorry for the jerks that broke your statue, but it’s fixed now, so please make the rain stop! Love Ume!”
Meanwhile, Aoi and Leland entertained Fujiwara with ghost stories while he made them soup.
The rain stopped by the time we returned.
Back on the road, Aoi passed out and fell on Ume’s dog. (on a personal note, I am being severely tested in my healing abilities. I really hope I can keep everyone alive.)
Because the ground was soggy, making camp was a little difficult but the day ended without further incident.
We began the day still in the plains. The weather was clear skys. Although we had the option to try to push ourselves harder, Ume as the leader declared we would chose safety and go at a normal pace. Nothing crazy happened.
