The karou bowed and left.
Sanematsu could not allow Tori to see his weakness. With her lack of guile, she would give away the mortality of his condition and cause his army to lose confidence. He needed time and strength, neither of which he had. He must attend this afternoon’s ritual to show himself to his samurai to maintain their loyalty and support. A large number were already allied with Matsumoto.
He wearied of people questioning him about Tori. How could they understand his love for her? Solid barriers were in place against their being together as husband and wife, though not in the manner of man and woman. He would never get the chance to be with her in any manner, if he read the omens correctly. With every breath, his life ebbed from him, drained further with every drop of blood seeping into the dressing on his side. In his desperation to hang on, his hand bunched into a fist around a wad of his bedding.
The doctors arrived, and after their examination, they told him his side was satisfactory, at best. Sanematsu’s senses told him otherwise. He was dying. Only one man could save him.
