Sweeping the Provisional and Revealing the Origin (3)

On the other hand, in this time, Tokimune was patting the big stomach of wife Noriko in the bedroom of the residence. As for him, nothing knows that a serious situation is happening at this midnight.

Two people smiled each other.

Tokimune put his ear to theabdomen of Noriko.

“Does it not appear early?”

Noriko laughs.

“You must not say such selfishness. If time does not pass a little more, the child is not born.”

“I cannot wait. Does the day to be born not come early?”

“I am the happiest now, whatever thought of Highness.”

“Why?”

“This is because what is taken good care of in this way by Highness is the happiest.”

Noriko buried her face in the breast of Tokimune.

At this time, they heard a voice whispering from the opposite side of the door.

“My lord, my lord. Are you in bed already?”

It was a voice of Yasumori Adachi.

Tokimune stood up and opened the sliding paper-door distrustfully.

Yasumori sits straight and demurely.

Noriko was surprised.

“My older brother!”

Tokimune cannot cover embarrassment for the sudden visit of Yasumori.

“Lord Yasumori, in this midnight what happened?”

Yasumori raised his head and showed eyes of the anger.

“There was just information. Priest Nichiren was abducted by the soldiers of Yoritsuna and seemed to go to Tatsunokuchi.”

“What! Do they intend to cut the neck of Nichiren?”

Tatsunokuchi is the pronoun of the beheading. Noriko clung to the back of Tokimune and shook.

The voice of Tokimune echoes in the residence.

“Stop it! Say to Yoritsuna. How can they cut the neck of the priest at the time of pregnancy of the highest-ranking wife? Shame on them! Priest Nichiren is innocent. Regret waits if wrong!”

The samurai of messenger jumped onto the horse under the moonlight.

Yasumori entrusted the messenger with a letter of Tokimune and encouraged him.

“Hurry to Tatsunokuchi!”

Yasumori got angry at tyranny of Yoritsuna. If tyranny of Yoritsuna continues, himself becomes danger. What should he do?

Yasumori set up a thought. Yasumori will dampen power of Yoritsuna if he interfered with execution of Nichiren. This is not because it helps Nichiren.

It is only because he did not want to lose his position.


The horse with Nichiren more goes ahead through the road of the shoreline to Tatsunokuchi.

The sea opens to the left, and, in the right, a steep mountain still spreads out now. There is a man-trap in time.

Yoritsuna Taira intends to assassinate Nichiren in darkness. The Kamakura Shogunate always executed the important person in secret. They never cut the criminal at the capital. It was with the family of He'ike, and also the court noble which was caught at the Zhokyu War.

On the other hand, Shijo Kingo has been already prepared for it. (Since Yoritsuna Taira selected Tatsunokuchi, the death of priest Nichiren is not avoided. If so, I will commit suicide by cutting the abdomen, too.)

Kingo was often told by Nichiren.

“No mortal escapes death.”

Man will die sooner or later. Fate of a future life is decided of what a person dies for. The teacher as the samurai is Nagoe Mitsutoki of the Hojo family, but the teacher of the Lotus Sutra through the three existences is nothing but Nichiren. What lack shall be there in my life if I can go to Eagle peak with the teacher?


There are restless waves in the execution place of Tatsunokuchi.

There is large Pacific in darkness.

The torches were lighted on the corners of the sandy beach, and a soldier strengthened defense.

The soldier digs the hole where a neck falls into.

Echi Saburo Shigenao having the sword sat on the folding stool with a hard look and he put up the Zyadomaru of the celebrated sword beside the left and was waiting arrival of Nichiren.

The hilt of the sword was lighted up by the torch and shined ominously.
