Eager to remove herself from the shameful situation, Kataji merely bows to the general and retreats to the hall behind Koden. She has regained her composure at this point, but her stomach tightens as she notes the stiffness in his back. No doubt the general's words have lessened her greatly in his opinion.

Once they are safely outside she stops, her face once again assuming the emotionless mask she so carefully wears. Koden is still facing away from her, whether by choice or circumstance she cannot say. Her voice is calm, although there might be a note of urgency beneath.

"I never lied to you. Yes, what the general said is true: I was not invited to the feast but surely you see that I couldn't tell you that."
