chicken hatching

I dreamt that I befriended an enormous eel. It was about twenty feet long and could open its jaws three feet wide and loved making faces for the camera when I slid my phone along the glass of its tank. I could communicate with it slightly through telepathy and it told me it was really a dragon.

At another point, I had some chickens and their eggs hatched into lizards.

The swords of Hojo

Onimaru probably was the sword of loyalty to the Hojo Regents, being born into the Hojo Clan from the beginning. That period marked his most glorious days as the heroic sword who defended the clan from demons, his chain of tragedies only began after the Hojo Clan was wiped out. He probably had very fond memories of them, having his title of the sword that could ward off demons given to him by that family, until he was thrown into the middle of many bloody feuds and was finally regarded as the ominous sword of misfortune rejected by his owners.

Tsurumaru on the other hand, was robbed from the grave and taken into the Hojo Clan that killed his previous owner. In the event that he did not really forgive and accept the Hojo family, imagine the amount of snark that Tsurumaru and Onimaru would have thrown at each other while staying under the same roof.

When the Hojo Clan was under fatal attack, one saying goes that the last regent, Hojo Takatoki committed suicide using Onimaru when his clan went down with him. The other says that Onimaru was given to Takatoki’s son, Kunitoki, who was captured and executed by Nitta Yoshisada at age 9 while Onimaru was taken from him. Nonetheless Onimaru tried to defend his beloved Hojo Clan till the last, during which Tsurumaru’s whereabouts were unknown. Maybe Tsurumaru did eventually accept his position as the Hojo family sword, or maybe he saw it as an opportunity to be finally freed and willingly betrayed Onimaru who expected him to be a comrade in saving his cherished family. 

However, even if Tsurumaru was happy to kiss the loyal Hojo sword goodbye, he was still roped back to Onimaru for three times more when he was almost gone forever in his mysterious escapades. Maybe it is the power of Onimaru’s grudge who refused to let go of the crane’s betrayal, or maybe it is the red string of fate.

“Surprise, I bet you thought you’d seen the last of me you obnoxious mess of feathers.”
