• I left my daimyo for he had grown fat with power and his corruption had gone deep within him. With no master I had brought great dishonor upon myself and had to flee his lands. I fled to the untamed north where I could be safe. As I reached the lands to the north I crossed a mountain. It was small and nothing to marvel at but a definite obstacle. I approached the mount and felt a great chill come over me which was quite strange for it was summer. The closer I came to the peak the colder I became. I thought to myself ‚Äúthis mount is not so tall to have such cold winds this time of year for even in the winter it has only a small ice cap". After a little while longer of this most unpleasing feeling I stopped to build a fire and gain back some of my lost warmth. So I did and the moment a flame had appeared it was snuffed out. I tried again and it was to the same effect. I gave it one last try and with that a women materialize in front of me. She told me she was the guardian of this mountain and the mistress of ice and that I did not heed her warnings. I replied that I neither heard nor saw any type of warnings. She answered that I felt them and for my transgressions I would be made her servant until my services where no longer needed. It has been two hundred years and I still serve. It is ironic that I would leave one master only to be enslaved by another.
