A dream of the past brings back memories of the Bakumatsu period in Kyoto for Kenshin. However, not only is the dream a reminder of a past encounter for Kenshin, but his sense of unease hints at the possibility of future troubles. Could it be that the memories which have suddenly come back to haunt him have greater meaning than reminding him of an all too bloody past?
Even the good news of one of Dr. Genzai's patients having given birth to a healthy son isn't enough to shake the feeling of melancholy and pre-occupation which dog Kenshin. Kaoru, noticing that Kenshin is not his usual self, asks Kenshin what has been bothering him and so Kenshin shares some of his dream of Kyoto and the memories from his past; his fight with the Shinsengumi whom he'd fought against. While the Shinsengumi and Ishinshishi were enemies and fought each other with all their strength, there had been no hatred in their battles.
Sano in the meantime has gone to Kamiya dojo to find everyone out for the afternoon/evening. While waiting for the others to return, a wandering pharmacist Fujita Gorou comes to the dojo to sell his wares. However, Sano is suspicious when he finds that the pharmacist has callouses one would normally find on a swordsman. As Kenshin was out, Fujita Gorou a.k.a Saito Hajime decides to leave a calling card for Kenshin...
