(Haha, sorry that is for Shiro)
Shiro wakes up that morning feeling unstoppable. He hefts his axe which feels much lighter than usual (STR to D8 I wouldn’t suggest rolling them all at once like I did) and sets about packing his things onto Daisy. His son’s family spent the night and he cooks them a quick breakfast while they wake up.
He sits next to his wife while they eat and gazes at her lovingly while she eats her impromptu breakfast. She makes a face at the taste and says, “Spare those traveling with you and don’t cook on the road.” He laughs at that and kisses her on the forehead, “I have to go now my love”
They embrace for what feels like a lifetime and both come away with tears in their eyes.
“I love you my lion,” she whispers.
“And I love you my lamb,” he returns.
Setting out, his family follow him as far as the edge of town. He hugs all of them, his granddaughter most of all. He is the first one there, but he doesn’t want his family to wait for the send-off.
“Alright, I’m going to see if I can’t find that Hime Apple tree before we go. Take good care of your Mother and I’ll see you all soon.”
With one last round of hugs, Shiro sets out into the Plains to find the first healing herb of the trip.
