One day the master samurai Minamoto Raiko fell ill one day and was in the care of a young servant boy. The young boy fed him medicine every day but Raiko continued to fall deeper and deeper into illness. Suspicious of trickery, Raiko pierced the servant through the heart breaking the spell he was under. The boy ran off and Raiko followed his trails of blood until he spotted a large spider with a hole through its chest.
