SNB Oda ~ Chapter 6.3 ~

Chapter 6: The Light that Leads to the World

At the end of discussions, she received permission to search for a sacred treasure, and headed to the actual place together with Nagahide.

Inside a cave and not knowing when they might encounter the Toyotomi Army… there they saw…!?

Chapter 6.3

The next day after Nobunaga-san gave permission to search for the sacred treasure, Nagahide-san and I departed towards the shrine where the legend of a dragon guarding a mirror was said.

It was when close to half a day passed while I was moving on Nagahide-san’s horse–

[YUZUKI]: “Ah, over there! I can see a village.”

.[NAGAHIDE]: “…… If you can see it when you’re riding behind me, there’s no way I couldn’t have seen it, right?”

[YUZUKI]: “R-Right……”

[YUZUKI]: (Haa…… ever since we set out it’s been like this. There’s been no conversations at all……)

When I sighed softly, so as to not be noticed, the horse suddenly stopped.

[NAGAHIDE]: “–Get off.”

[YUZUKI]: “…… Ah, okay.”

When I got off the horse with the support of Nagahide-san, who got off first, he casually handed me the reins.

[NAGAHIDE]: “Don’t leave the horse.”

Saying that, Nagahide-san abruptly drew out his sword.

[YUZUKI]: “U-Um, what’s the matter all of a sudden?”

[NAGAHIDE]: “…… You probably don’t know, but there’s a smell of blood coming from that village. It was probably…… attacked by yakuma.”

[YUZUKI]: “Wha!?”

[NAGAHIDE]: “I’m going ahead. Keep quiet as much as possible and follow me at a distance.”

When we arrived at the village, Nagahide-san told me to standby on alert and went around looking at the houses alone.

Each time he checked a house, Nagahide-san’s expression darkened and became grim.

It was impossible for me to ask if there was anyone who was saved.

That night, due to the rain, we spent a night in the village that was attacked by yakuma.

The house that Nagahide-san found had no traces of people having been attacked at first glance, but–

[YUZUKI]: (But the people who lived here have surely……)

[YUZUKI]: “–!! Nagahide-san, right now that sound……”

[NAGAHIDE]: “…… So noisy. It’s just a stray dog.”

[YUZUKI]: (If that’s the case, it’s still scary though……)

As I held my knees I wanted to distract myself and so I spoke to Nagahide-san.

[YUZUKI]: “Um…… you look like you’ve been writing in that scroll since a while ago, what is it?”

[NAGAHIDE]: “…… It’s a distribution map marking all the locations yakuma have appeared.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “It’s a warning to those who live in dangerous regions where yakuma tend to break out and it is to be used as a reference for moving them to safe locations that I have been making on Nobunaga-sama’s orders.”

[YUZUKI]: “Eh…… Nobunaga-san gave those kind of orders……”

[NAGAHIDE]: “I don’t know how you see Nobunaga-sama, but that person takes great care of the people of his territory.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “For the sake of the people, he is looking beyond unifying the country, and trying to ascertain the yakuma’s true form.”

[YUZUKI]: “…… What’s beyond unifying the country?”

[NAGAHIDE]: “Isn’t it obvious. Stability and peace.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “Many of the feudal lords are fighting to be the one to rule Shinga, but to Nobunaga-sama that is nothing more than a checkpoint.”

[YUZUKI]: (He seems like the most indifferent person to stability and peace… but… I see… he’s trying to protect his territory’s people……)

Perhaps because my feelings became lighter, I gradually felt drowsy and was able to sleep a little.

–And then, the next day.

[NAGAHIDE]: “…… We’ve arrived. The rumored cave should be further in.”

[YUZUKI]: “And Himemiko-sama’s sacred treasure will be there……”

[NAGAHIDE]: “…… I’m going to say this now but if we encounter Toyotomi’s people the search will be stopped immediately.”

[YUZUKI]: “…… There’s a high chance of that, huh.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “…………”

[YUZUKI]: “…… Nagahide-san?”

[NAGAHIDE]: “I’m only going to say this once, so listen well. If we encounter Toyotomi people and you were to fall into their hands–“

[NAGAHIDE]: “At that time…… I will kill you before they realize the value of your blood.”

[YUZUKI]: “!!”

[NAGAHIDE]: “Even so, will you go?”

    Oi. Nagahide…that’s a bit harsh, no? And in that previous chapter…Nobunaga…that’s also pretty harsh too?? I’m trying to read into this, but all I’m getting is this really cold atmosphere. But that can’t be right since they seem attached to our mc ;; 7 ;; ))…Thanks for the chapter!

      I think it’s a really interesting look into the Oda people in that, even if they have attachments or are friends with someone, they will still ultimately put their loyalty to Nobunaga and his goal above everything else. And so, while I think Nagahide would be inwardly hurt at having to raise a weapon against MC he would still go through with it rather than risk having Nobunaga’s goal to unite the country harmed with her falling into the wrong hands T_T. Nice but brutally objective people is how I see Nobunaga running his army.
