It was arranged, especially the daughter-in-law – after all she did not see anything further than her nose! Seijuro decided to steal ONATSu and flee with her to Kyoto, they hurried to seize the boat, sailing away before sunset. They only sailed in a boat full of all the people-there was a salesman, a soothsayer, a spellcaster, and a gunsmith, just went to sea, as one passenger shouted that he had left his box with letters in the hotel, and the boat turned back, and on bank
Seijou was already waiting, seized, tied up with ropes and taken to Himeji. Seijuro was grieving, feared for his life and for life O-Natsu feared. And in the meantime she prayed to the deity, that in Muro, about the extension of Seijuro days. And then a deity appeared to her in a dream and gave her a wonderful lecture: “Listen, girl, everyone is begging me: then give me money, then a good husband, then kill me, he disgusts me,

The money found in the dress was donated by Father O-Natsu to the remembrance of Seijuro’s soul. Novella about a bond that opened its heart of love
