Story Synopsis

In a roadside inn, Usagi enjoys a quiet meal. Unfortunately any serenity that the inn has is shattered by the arrival of a group of gamblers who order massive amounts of sake. They are asked by the innkeeper to keep the noise level down and respond by throwing him out on his ear.

Looking around for more would-be interruptions to their fun and games, they see a patron of the inn and proceed to make him follow the innkeeper. This leaves Usagi, whom they crowd around, becoming further and further frustrated when he refuses to react to their taunts and barbs. Demanding he dance for them, he does nothing at all and they decide to throw him out also. As they rush him, Usagi draws his katana and whirls it about them, sliding it neatly back into its saya.

It takes the drunken gamblers some time to realise that although he did not cut any of them, they flies that flew about him now lay in multiple sections on the floor. They decide that perhaps what the samurai wants is a quiet meal.
