Back at the pirate's home base, Shura once again challenges Kenshin to a battle, however Kenshin refuses to fight her any more. As thanks for saving Kaoru's life, Kenshin willingly offers no resistance to Shura should she decide to kill Kenshin. Shocked by his action, Shura decides to put off fighting and killing Kenshin until the next day. However, unbeknownst to Shura, the rest of the pirates are less than happy with her leadership abilities. However, more interestingly, it appears that the merchant whose ship Kenshin and party were defending, was carrying opium. The pirates (without their leader) decide to go in partnership with the smuggler merchant in an effort to earn the easy life. Of course, the smugglers seem to have gained a few stowaways who are planning on rescuing Kenshin.
Kenshin finds that instead of being able to relax and accept his upcoming death, the young female pirate Shura wants to know why Kenshin can just throw away his life as he has for Kaoru; and just what was so special about Kaoru anyways? However, in the midst of his explanation, Kenshin and Shura are interrupted by an explosion on board one of Shura's ships and Kenshin finds that he must fight to defend Shura from a mutiny among her ranks.
