It was a sad day in the Serietei. Once again the brutal emperor's taxes were claimed leaving the people penniless.
As citizens went about their daily business, no one seemed to notice the group of bushes that would periodically and strategically move throughout the town stopping at every door step to leave small bags of gold to be found later, nor did they notice as the bushes slowly made their way towards the center of the town; more specifically, the bakery.

Dozens of citizens watched starving as fresh bread was loaded into a horse drawn cart headed for the palace. As the last of the bread was loaded, and a protective tarp was put over the carriage for travel, the palace servant prepared to set off.
The sounds of bushes rustling alerted the public to a third party present completely revealed as Kyohei and his men abandoned their camouflage and took aim with their bows.
After careful aim, Kyohei fired the first shot ripping the tarp clean in half and causing it to fall to the ground.
The rest of his men followed shooting arrows at the pile of bread within the cart. The arrows sailed through the pile and shot out on the other side embedded into nearby walls. Each of them had bread skewered onto them up for grabs.
The people began to cheer as they scrambled to pick up the food.
"Good people of the Serietei!" Kyohei shouted as he bravely climbed to the top a nearby statue of Drazon.
"The Emperors bread is yours today. Curtsey of K- Wood." He added with a grin.
As the cheering continued, Kyohei took a bow before his public.

"BRING ME CAPTAIN KAGYAKU!" Drazon ordered furious when he heard what had happened.
Blaze entered the room boldly.
"You wanted to see me?" He asked.
"Quadruple the reward for the capture or body of K-Wood." Drazon shouted. The jewels in the crown he was wearing paled in comparison to the enraged gleam in his eyes.  
"Yes sir. But… if I may ask, do you and Wood have a history?" Blaze asked.
"Why do you ask?" Drazon demanded.
"Well, it just seems that he does whatever he can to annoy you." Blaze pointed out.

Drazon rolled his eyes as he sat down on his throne.
"After my Grandfather Yamamoto went off to fight in the war of hollows, he died in an attack and left the throne to me. But that whelps family tried to stop me from gaining power sp, I had them all annihilated. Unfortunately I had no idea the boy survived until years later. And now, its twenty two years later and the brat is set on getting revenge on me by annoying me." Drazon explained as the vein in his forehead began to throb.
"Ahh I see." Blaze said with a nod.
"As for the taxes to be collected tomorrow." Drazon said changing the subject. "I was quadruple the security. I don't want any more of K-Woods childish pranks as the money as collected and transported."
"Yes sir." Blaze said as he slowly made his way towards the exit.

Finally free of the emperor's predatory bird like gaze, Blaze allowed himself to relax. He had lucked out. Not only had he managed to escape the man's wrath, but he had also managed to keep his job protected.
"Hello Captain!" A cheerful vice said.
"Nanami shhh not so loud!" Her friend chided.
Blaze turned to see two nobles from the emperor's court approaching him
"Oh, hello Lady Aisu and Lady Nanami. What can I do for you?" He asked.
"Nothing." Aisu said trying to push her friend along.
"No no wait!" Nanami said fighting back. "You're going to the village tomorrow aren't you?" She asked happily.
"Yes." He said with a nod.
"And will there be guards with you?" Aisu asked jumping the gun and knowing already what her friend was getting at.
"Yes, many in fact." He answered.
"May we come with you to the village?" Nanami asked. "Pretty please?"
Blaze took a step back at her enthusiasm.
"Umm, yes I suppose."
"Oh! Thank you captain!" Nanami said grabbing her friend and beginning to pull her down the hallway.

"Oh hey wait!" Blaze said catching up to them. "Um this is for you." He said reaching into his pocket and pulling out a golden heart shaped locket on a gold chain.  "I saw it in the village and I thought you'd like it."
"Oh well, thank you." Nanami said with a smile.
