They had met before, Usagi and Gen had been after a stolen sword and where thwarted by this pair. Now Kitsune is on the run: she has stolen a ledger recording bribes by a gang leader to local politicians.

An avid listener has been pretending to sleep next to the table where the samurais and the thieves are having a meal. He will rapidly wake up and run towards the quarters of his boss Hasegawa and thus betray them.
