Usagi and Yukichi have left Lord Hikiji's province so their troubles are behind them... or so they thought! They meet up with Kitsune, the street performer/thief, who brings her own troubles. Kitsune has stolen a ledger recording bribes by a gang leader to local politicians. Usagi wants to turn it over to the area magistrate but she wants to sell it back to the mob leader. However, both plans change when Kitsune's protégé, Kiyoko, is kidnapped!
