Yusef and Sonlee are walking through the forest when Yusef glances back to observe the Master’s house but his view is blocked by the massive trees. Sonlee speaks, “Loser, we have to move faster if we are going to get to the mountain tonight and spend the early morning trying to get back here.” Yusef responds, “Okay, but if you call me a loser again, we’re going to have a problem and the next time we fight, I won’t take it easy on you.” Sonlee laughs and replies, “You can barely walk and you think you can beat me, you’re funny. That was a great joke.” Yusef clinches his fist, “I can’t stand this guy.”
In the far distance on the other side of the forest walking perpendicular to Yusef and Sonlee’s path are warriors wearing sky blue Japanese gowns. There are four men and a woman walking side by side. One giant warrior carries an enormous sword on his shoulder, the lady carries a chain blade on her back, the second male warrior carries a samurai sword, the third carries a wooden staff and the last warrior is weaponless or so it seems. The woman says to the giant man, “Rokuro, I’m telling you all the other assassins are looking for Prince Sonlee in the nearby cities, it’s no way he is in any highly populated areas. Their King is way too intelligent, he probably sent him to be trained somewhere, and where would you train a prince when every assassin from the Toe Empire is looking for him? The forest! He is definitely somewhere in this forest.” Rokuro replies, “Well I have also heard rumors that he is training with the legendary Henan He-Ping also known as the Master. Well I hope you’re right about this forest business because if you are wrong and some other assassin gets to Prince Sonlee before we do, we will miss out on 200 pounds of gold and I will not be happy.” Rokuro and his assassins appear to be miles from meeting with Sonlee and Yusef, but neither side has any idea.
