SNB Toyotomi ~ Chapter 2.5 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 2: Plan

Her blood’s ability to “awaken” the Gekka Tribe… and then suddenly being told to become a bride!?

While being confused about all these events, reports about the appearance of fiendish creatures called yakuma come to Hideyoshi…!

Chapter 2.5

[TOSHIIE]: “Aren’t you tired?”

[YUZUKI]: “I’m fine. Are you okay, Toshiie-san? Somehow, it feels like the number of yakuma has been increasing……”

[TOSHIIE]: “Hah, these numbers are nothing.”

[TOSHIIE]: “Besides, the more yakuma there are, means we’re slowly getting closer to where Hideyoshi is.”

[YUZUKI]: “I see, then we’ll soon–“

[TOSHIIE]: “Wait, stop.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh? What do you…… ah!”

At the point where Toshiie-san’s sharp gaze stopped, there was a swarm of yakuma which blocked our way.

[YUZUKI]: (W-What do we do…… It doesn’t look like they’ve noticed us yet though……)

[TOSHIIE]: “Heh…… It’s finally gotten interesting.”

As he muttered this, Toshiie-san’s eyes glittered with restlessness.

[TOSHIIE]: “From here onwards, I’ll draw the yakuma and, in the meantime, you’ll run to Hideyoshi.”

[YUZUKI]: “Wha! But there’s so many there……”

[TOSHIIE]: “Don’t worry ’bout that. It’s easier for me to fight alone than to fight while protecting you.”

[YUZUKI]: “G-Got it. Please be careful, Toshiie-san.”

[TOSHIIE]: “You don’t need to worry ’bout me.”

Telling me this, Toshiie-san jumped out in front of the yakuma.

[TOSHIIE]: “C’mon, yakuma bastards! I, Toshiie-sama, will be your opponent!!”

[YAKUMA]: “Grrrrghrrrrrgh!!”

[TOSHIIE]: “C’mon, c’mon, over here! Those who want to die, come at me!”

I left Toshiie-san and hurried forwards to where the sight of Hideyoshi-san, surrounded by yakuma, leapt into view.

[YUZUKI]: “Hideyoshi-san!”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Oh, so you did come~. That was quicker than I thought.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh? Ah, don’t do that! If you look away, the yakuma will–“

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Don’t worry, don’t worry! Whoops!”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “I can still keep going~!”

[YUZUKI]: (S-Somehow, he seems really relaxed……?)

Cutting down the yakuma one after another, in the blink of an eye, Hideyoshi-san arrived in front of me.

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Geez, I told you to house-sit at the castle. You’re a baaad girl.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Or, were you this worried about me?”

[YUZUKI]: “O-Of course I’d be worried!…… But, it doesn’t seem like that worry was necessary.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Ehhh, that’s not true. See, look at what’s over there?”

Turning to look at the point he indicated, there was a countless number of yakuma in a swarm which slowly moved to surround us.

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Honestly, they’re so persistent it’s troublesome~. At this rate, we’ll be surrounded again.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “I think I might need to drink your blood agaiinn. How about it?”

[YUZUKI]: “Why are you smiling in this situation! …… Huh? Come to think of it, didn’t you just say “so you did come” back there?”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Mm? Did I?”

[YUZUKI]: “No way, did you plan everything up to now–!?”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Is this the time to care about that?”

As if to block me from pressing my questions, Hideyoshi-san brought his face close to mine.

[HIDEYOSHI]: “I told you, didn’t I? That it was my principle to use whatever means necessary to get what I want.”

He whispered that to me in a voice that was different from usual and slightly low.

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Come on, why don’t you let me drink your blood soon? If you don’t, then we’re going to die like this, you know?”

[YUZUKI]: (Somehow, it feels like I’ve been playing right into Hideyoshi-san’s hands– but…)

While my body stiffened from the breaths that were being blown into my ear, I looked back directly into Hideyoshi-san’s face.

[YUZUKI]: “…… If you’re going to drink my blood, I have some conditions too.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Huh? Conditions?”

[YUZUKI]: “Please use this blood of mine to help the Toyotomi Army. If I’m of use, then I can stay in the Toyotomi Army, right?”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “…… Well, I did say that. And?”

[YUZUKI]: “T-That’s why… um, the talk about marriage…… l-let’s put that on hold for now……”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “–Puh, haha, ahahaHAHA! I give up! To think you’d only set these conditions when the person you’re speaking to is me.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “I thought you were a girl who couldn’t do anything, but I might have taken you too lightly.”

[YUZUKI]: “T-Then……!”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Sure…… that’s okay. Well, the results are a bit different from what I predicted but–“

[HIDEYOSHI]: “From now on, always stay by my side.”

[YUZUKI]: “–Okay.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Now then, I’m going to take your blood, okay?”

Hideyoshi-san’s face slowly came closer. His fangs pierced my neck, along with a slight pain.

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Nngh…… haa…… here it comes, here it comes…… this feeling……!”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “You yakuma are unlucky! Right now I’m invincible.”

[MITSUNARI]: “Hideyoshi-sama! Are you unharmed!?”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Yo, Mitsunari. As you can see, we’re both unharmed.”

[TOSHIIE]: “Looks like it. We’re done with everything over here too. The town hasn’t been harmed either.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Haha, as expected. Good work, everyone.”

Hideyoshi-san grinned and then, suddenly, pulled my hand as I stood beside him.

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Well, anyway, I have an important announcement for everyone!”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “At this time, because I’ve lost to her enthusiasm, I will be making her my bodyguard!”

[YUZUKI]: (B-Bodyguard!?)

[MITSUNARI]: “A-Are you serious, Hideyoshi-sama!?”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “It’s ’cause she’s stubborn.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “The topic of marriage has been put on hold, so if I’m going to welcome her into the army, she will need some kind of position, right.”

[TOSHIIE]: “Haha! You’re amazing to have beaten Hideyoshi.”

[HANBEE]: “If it’s you, you’re most welcome~!”

[KANBEE]: “Heh, things have become interesting.”

[MITSUNARI]: “…… Haa, if this is Hideyoshi-sama’s decision, then I will obey.”

Hearing everyone’s words, a feeling of having been accepted gradually spread through my heart.

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Great, we’ve gotten everyone’s approval! Now then, once again–“

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Welcome to the Toyotomi Army.”

      This is the part where I was like “… that’s… really scary” LOL. I mean I love it but at the same time it’s like WOW he wasn’t kidding when he said he’d use whatever means necessary to get what he wants. The sunshine playful boy has a ruthless side T_T.

    LOL, bodyguard? Haha. I love how stubborn the protagonist is too. The ending to the chapter is so satisfying though, she’s finally, like, officially accepted X’3

      Hideyoshi is making up random roles for the heroine LOL but yeah I loved that she managed to even the grounds a little here since, up to now, Hideyoshi has kinda been running rampant all over her opinions |D. Heehee, it’s an official welcome to the Toyotomi Army but it’s not quite smooth sailing yet.
