・The 39 th Story - Yugiri
As Yugiri visited Kashiwagi's widow, Ochiba-no-Miya, He gradually came to love her. Her mother, Ichijo-no-Miyasudokoro wrote Yugiri a letter worrying about her daughter. The letter, however, was stolen by Yugiri's wife, Kumoi-no-Kari. Ichijo-no-Miyasudokoro was bitterly disappointed to have no response from Yugiri, and died. Yugiri forced Ochiba-no-Miya to marry him though she continued to decline him all the more because of her mother's death.
