14. To the Nation Remonstrate, and the Persecution of Matsuba Valley (5)

               Japanese edition


The voice of the crowd sounded.

“Nichiren escaped!”.

The crowd of Nembutsu chases Nichiren.

The Buddhist priest of black robe leads them and runs after him with a long-handled sword. The fire of the torch runs to darkness.

One samurai stood in front of the party of Nichiren who was running. It was Shijo Kingo who has appeared from the dark.

Nichiren was relieved.

"Oh, sir, Lord Kingo".

"Priest, follow me".

Kingo guided to the small road which descended to the valley.

“A thousand thanks!”.

The crowds bore down upon there.

Kingo shuts it out and opens both hands.

“Stop!”

The crowd was at a high pitch of excitement.

"Who are you? Are you a conspirator of Nichiren?”.

Kingo shouts out.

“I do not know what there was, but what is it to attack only several people in great numbers? There is a priest there. He is a Buddhist priest of wherever? What is the Buddhist priest who should forbid killing doing?”.

The Buddhist priest of black robe shrank, but supporters rebuked Kingo instead.

“Shut up! We will exterminate the enemy of Nembutsu. Get out of our way!”.

A crowd threatened Kingo by a torch, but he drew his sword quickly, and cut a torch. The torch was cut and floated in the air, and sparks spread on crowds.

A crowd screams. Kingo saw it and escaped by this chance.

The party of Nichiren lay hidden in the small cave of the foot of a mountain.

There is a hurt disciple.

Nichiren dropped a voice and encouraged them.

“Is the body all right? Is there not the injury? Everybody succeeded in escaping well!”.

In Nichiro, a face looked pale, and a quiver did not stop. Hokbo rushed and hooked his arm over Nichiro's shoulder.

Heard a crowd howling in the distance.

Then, they heard footsteps that somebody approached to here.

Who is he? Disciples strain their ears.

Nichiren was prepared for it. Sanmibo drops his head.

But the person of footsteps was not an enemy. Jonin Toki was searching for Nichiren under moonlight.

Jonin whispers it in a low voice.

Priest, priest”.

Eyes of Nichiren shined.

“That voice is Lord Toki”.

Nichiren met again to Jonin Toki, at the entrance of cave.

Jonin confirmed the safety of Nichiren and was finally relieved.

“I am glad that you are safe. I am ready to go with you”.

“Where to?”.

“If the priest was in Kamakura, it is dangerous. Let's evacuate to my residence of Shimousa for the time being”.

Nichiren put hands together unintentionally.

“I am very much obliged to you”.

Shijo Kingo ran out of breath and rushed to there.

Nichiren spoke to Kingo.

“You were good come through! Lord Kingo is really admirable”.

Jonin tells it to Shijo Kingo.

“Lord Kingo, the priest leaves from Kamakura with us, we evacuate to Shimousa temporarily”.

“It is a happy idea. Leave Kamakura to me. I'm depending on you for the priest. Now then, quick!”.

They left Kingo and left under cover of darkness.

Nichiren looked back and looked back and watched Kingo. Kingo stepped strongly with both legs and saw them off grandly.

Kingo supposed at this time that the believers of the Lotus sutra would fall into much difficulty in the future. At the same time, he made up his mind to protect teacher Nichiren of the mind even at the risk of life throughout the life firmly.
