Secrets ( 隠し事 Kakushikoto ) is the 42nd chapter of the Kekkaishi Manga written and illustrated by Yellow Tanabe
In the Yukimura Home's dojo, Tokine practices creating multi-layer Kekkai on a target. She positions it perfectly, and notes that while it makes up for her strength, she won't be able to use it too many times a day. Tokiko Yukimura passes by and mentions that the skill does not suit her.
Tokine wonders what her grandmother meant as she leaves for school, immediately spotting Yoshimori leaving as well. She is surprised that he is leaving for school before her, and notes that he has been lost in thought and avoiding her lately. She suspects he is hiding something, and wonders if he is doing some special training. She decides to confront him about it, but is disgusted to find him drinking three coffee milks at once. He reveals that he plans to drink even more at lunch, and Tokine storms off without asking him, leaving Yoshimori confused.
Yoshimori shows Shigemori a scroll that explains that the further a Kekkaishi is from their Kekkai, the weaker it will become. Therefore, to maintain that Kekkai, another power source would be needed. Yoshimori suggests that the box he repaired was the power source of Lord Uro's bed, and that it had to be repaired because containing a god requires such great power. Yoshimori considers that if Tokimori Hazama needed the land for additional power, he may have been trying to seal Karasumori as well. Shigemori advises Yoshimori not to rush himself, and points out that repairing the bed was not normal Kekkaijutsu. He urges Yoshimori to focus on his training so he can learn to use his power.
At Karasumori that night, Yoshimori asks Madarao what Tokimori Hazama was like. Madarao eagerly begins describing how attractive was, which doesn't help. Yoshimori tries to recreate the feeling of Lord Uro's bed, hoping it will help him create something similar. Tokine and Hakubi arrive just as Yoshimori produces a dark aura around his body. Tokine shouts his name, interrupting him and demanding to know if he's doing something dangerous. Yoshimori denies this and storms off, leaving Tokine frustrated.
