Chapter 1: Welcome, Red Dawn

At the Red Dawn Inn, a young man named Tamashī Araito sits at a table, sipping saki (Japanese alchohol). He wears a sakura styled kimono, and has a sword at his feat. He motions one of the ladies working there his way a moment. A young woman approaches him, holding a serving tray, and asks "Yes, sir? May I get you anything else?". He simply says, "Saki". She then takes his empty cups, and moments later, returns with a bottle, and a clean cup.

    As if just noticing, the young girl sees Tamashi is wearing a bandage around his right eye. She hadn't seen it yet, because he kept that side of his face in the opposite direction.

As soon as he gets outside into the village, in the nights air, he hears, "Excuse me, sir..." He turns to see Tamashi standing at the door. "WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU WANT -- you one-eyed punk?!" Tamashi puts his hand on his sword handle, and just like that, the drunken man couldn't even feel himself being cut down. The man dropped like a fly, and Tamashi was already sheathing his blade. "You shouldn't treat ladies with such disrespect..." The man at the counter was being attended to, and the lady sees Tamashi re-enter the inn. He hands her the bag, says "Thank you.", and exits...
