Nobuhide grew quite fond of a Lion courtier, Ikoma Asa, while she was visiting the courts of the Crane, and happily she returned the affection. To convince their superiors to grant the right of marriage, Asa informed them that they would bind it with a great gift, from herself to Nobuhide. 
Festival of the Sea Dragon Edit
In 1170 during the Festival of the Sea Dragon Asa presented a suitable gift, a handkerchief that once belonged to Lady Doji. Asa and a Dragon, Mirumoto Katsutoshi, were accused by Doji Saori of stealing it, and Katsutoshi retorted saying she was a liar, and it was clearly attempting to shame Asa for her own purposes. Katsutoshi was challenged to a duel, in which the insult and Asa's honor would be dealt. He arranged for Mirumoto Ichizo to act as their champion, who defeated Saori in a duel to first blood. Katsutoshi said the outcome proved that Saori attempted to shame Asa, but the duel did not resolve the attempt to shame her. Doji Choshi, Saori's charge, suggested that the Dragon took Saori as its hostage. Asa was indebted to Katsutoshi and in time he would make excellent use of such a favor. 
The Crane permitted Nobuhide to marry Asa, and to join the Lion taking the Ikoma name as Ikoma Nobuhide. Asa and Nobuhide retired together during the peace after the Destroyer War, dedicating themselves to a temple to Benten in Crane lands.
