Chapter 1: Valuable Blood
The Oda Army was heading into a battle against Toyotomi.
For some reason, Nobunaga had ordered her to accompany him to the battlefield.
It seemed like he was testing something, but what was the true motive…?
[MITSUHIDE]: “Nobunaga-sama, I have brought her.”
[YUZUKI]: (Uu… he’s looking at me… why does it have to feel like this stabbing pain in my stomach……)
[YUZUKI]: (I don’t really understand this whole parallel universe business, but I want to go home quickly. But at that time he said “If you run, you will be killed”……)
[YUZUKI]: (Imari-kun said he was going to collect information on Himemiko-sama, so I’ll just stay here quietly right now……)
[MITSUHIDE]: “Please, this way.”
.[YUZUKI]: “Ah, thank you…… excuse me.”
[YUZUKI]: (I’m being stared at a lot……)
[???]: “…… Nobunaga-sama, what’s with this woman. We gonna use her in our next strategy?”
[???]: “Katsuie…… are you an idiot. Where and how are you looking at this woman to think that.”
[KATSUIE]: “Nah, but, she was brought here during our war meeting so you’d think that, normally.”
The person called Katsuie looked at me with great interest.
But the other man, who had a sharp atmosphere around him, didn’t look over except for his first glance.
[???]: “…… How about you use your head a little, Katsuie.”
[KATSUIE]: “Shaddup. I’m gonna head back to battle soon, and drive away those Toyotomi guys from Oda’s territory! What’d I have to use my head for, aside from that.”
[???]: “Why are you acting arrogant when you don’t use your head on the battlefield either.”
[???]: “Katsuie-san! And Nagahide-san too! We are in the presence of Nobunaga-sama. Please be quiet–“
[KATSUIE]: “You say that, Ranmaru, but you’re really curious too, aren’t you. You’ve been reaaally staring at her.”
[RANMARU]: “Of course, I am interested. It’s rare for such a cute person to come to this castle.”
[RANMARU]: “Above all, Nobunaga-sama brought her here.”
[YUZUKI]: (…… His manner is soft, but what is it… somehow, it seems like there’s no smile in his eyes……)
[KATSUIE]: “Anyway, back to our topic.”
[RANMARU]: “I’ve told you, you are in the presence of Nobunaga-sama, be quiet–“
The moment that cold voice was heard, everyone closed their mouths with a snap.
When I reflexively turned my head to look, our eyes met directly.
[NOBUNAGA]: “Come closer.”
Unable to ignore him, I timidly approached.
[NAGAHIDE]: “She’s not hiding any weapons, right.”
[MITSUHIDE]: “Yes. When she entered the castle, maids were used to inspect her.”
[YUZUKI]: (I don’t want a sword pointed at me again, so I’ll stop around here……)
When I stopped at a place that was around five steps away–
[NOBUNAGA]: “Too far. Come closer.”
Having been told that immediately, I had no choice but to go even closer.
[KATSUIE]: “…… By the way, that woman, doesn’t she smell kinda delicious?”
[YUZUKI]: (Delicious…… What does he mean?)
I had a terrible feeling, but this atmosphere wasn’t one where I could ask, so I could only keep my mouth closed.
[NOBUNAGA]: “That is enough. Sit down.”
[NOBUNAGA]: “Woman, your name?”
[YUZUKI]: “…… Yuzuki.”
[NOBUNAGA]: “It appears you entered deep into our main camp…… From where do you come.”
[YUZUKI]: “Umm, I come from… Japan.”
[NOBUNAGA]: “…… I do not know that country.”
[KATSUIE]: “A foreigner? At any rate, unlike us, she seems like just a normal human.”
[YUZUKI]: (…… Huh? Unlike us…?… Come to think of it……)
[YUZUKI]: (His ears are pointed…… everyone else too……)
[NOBUNAGA]: “Woman, could it be…… that this is your first time seeing “vampires” like us?”
[YUZUKI]: “Wha… va… vampires!?”
