Chapter 7: Past Mistakes and Resolve for the Future

Nobunaga, who obtained a sacred treasure, set up a meeting with Toyotomi as his next move.

Chosen as the emissary, Mitsuhide headed to the Toyotomi territory prepared for death in order to settle the past, but……

Chapter 7.1

[YUZUKI]: “Wow, amazing……!”

After the conference with Nobunaga-san and others ended, I returned to my own room and widened my eyes at its change.

[YUZUKI]: (At some point, my room’s been buried in extravagant boxes……!)

[YUZUKI]: (Are these possibly the rewards that Nobunaga-san spoke of for awakening the sacred treasure……?)

Feeling a bit overwhelmed by the amount, I tried opening one of the boxes, which were stacked like a mountain.

[YUZUKI]: “Inkstones and inksticks……? This looks like a calligraphy set.”

When I opened the others, there were practical things like brushes and paper, fashionable things like face powder and incense pastilles, and many other things that could be used around me.

[YUZUKI]: (I’m really happy but each and every one of these seems expensive…… Is it okay for me to have this much……?)

[YUZUKI]: (But for Nobunaga-san to prepare this much might show how important the awakening of the sacred treasure was to him……)

[???]: “Uurgh…! Uugh…!”

I could hear a groaning voice coming from somewhere.

When I startled and looked over to the sound, I saw a box shaking little by little.

[YUZUKI]: (Huh… w-what…!? What’s there…!?)

I nervously removed the items around the area where the sound was and from the cracks I could see white fur jutting out.

Could this be…… the moment I thought that, the white lump jumped out into the air.

[IMARI]: “…… Puwah! I’m finally out… thank you so much…!”

[YUZUKI]: “So it was Imari-kun! Why were you buried there!?”

[IMARI]: “A-Actually… when I came back to this room, I found a lot of boxes placed in here.”

[IMARI]: “And while I was looking at them, wondering what they were, soldiers came into the room. When I panicked and hid under the boxes, they packed even more on top……”

[YUZUKI]: “Wha!? Then you’ve been under those boxes all this time? Are you okay!?”

[IMARI]: “I am…… More importantly, are you okay!? I heard you went to get the sacred mirror……”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah, we found it safely. It wasn’t a mirror but this knife though.”

[IMARI]: “Huh!? R-Really! T-That’s the real sacred treasure……”

I talked about the circumstances of how I received the sacred treasure from Nobunaga-san to the surprised Imari-kun.

[IMARI]: “Light came from this knife……!? U-Um, could you try pulling out the sacred treasure?”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh? Mm, sure but I don’t know if it’ll light up like it did that time……”

At Imari-kun’s request, I pulled the knife out of its sheath and in that instant a dazzling light poured out from its blade.

[YUZUKI]: “Wah…!”

In the moment I was surprised and reflexively let out a scream, I felt like I could hear someone’s voice.

[YUZUKI]: (Huh… what’s this… it feels like someone is calling me……)

[KATSUIE]: “What’s wrong!?”

Katsuie-san and the others, who had heard the noise, burst into the room. At the same time, in the corner of my eye, I saw Imari-kun hide himself hurriedly.

[RANMARU]: “We heard a scream. Could it be an enemy attack…!?”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah, sorry… I was surprised when I pulled out the knife and light came out.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “…… What, that’s all? Geez, don’t make such a fuss……”

[NAGAHIDE]: “…… Hm?”

Nagahide-san, who had sighed, suddenly changed his expression. When I followed his line of sight……

[KATSUIE]: “What’s this…? The light from the knife became thin like a line……”

[MITSUHIDE]: “It’s as if it’s… pointing towards something. This direction is… the Toyotomi territory?”

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… Or possibly not Toyotomi.”

As if in answer to Mitsuhide’s question, Nobunaga-san quietly entered the room. His eyes were extremely serious……

[MITSUHIDE]: “Not Toyotomi… you say? In other words, Date and Sanada… or possibly……”

[YUZUKI]: “Um…… what’s going on, everyone…? What’s at the end of the light just now……?”

[NOBUNAGA]: “You do not have to know. However…… hm, that’s right, you may think of it as a clue to Himemiko.”

[YUZUKI]: “Really!?”

[NOBUNAGA]: “It is conjecture at most, do not expect anything. Leaving that aside, have you looked at your reward properly?”

[YUZUKI]: “Y-Yes, thank you very much. But… is it okay for me to have this much?”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Aa, use them as you like. Now then, everyone, let’s go.”

Saying only that, Nobunaga-san took everyone out with him.

[YUZUKI]: (I got a lot of things…… and there’s still things I haven’t looked at. I need to give my thanks again later……)

When I was thinking that, Imari-kun peeked out again.

[IMARI]: “…… Phew, they’re finally gone. I was really nervous thinking they were going to find me.”

[YUZUKI]: “…… Hey, Imari-kun. Just now, when I pulled out the knife, I felt like someone was calling me… but maybe that was my imagination.”

[IMARI]: “Huh… a voice calling you? Perhaps that was Himemiko-sama’s guidance!?”

[YUZUKI]: “If that’s so, then the day we can meet Himemiko-sama might be close…!”

[YUZUKI]: (And then I can finally return to my old world……)

[IMARI]: “But I’m also curious about what the commanders said. What exactly is waiting for us at the end of where the light pointed……”

[IMARI]: “Right now, Shinga is an age of rivalling powerful warlords. We don’t know which army will rise to power……”

[YUZUKI]: (I see…… I thought I finally found a clue to my old world but… a war might be starting again……)

      Haha, I feel like everyone who has been following the Oda and Toyotomi stories has been waiting for this moment |D and I’ve finally almost caught up with the game!! Although they’re about to release CH8 for both next so I guess I have a few more to go before I can finally tackle another army, haha.

    Ooh…so what will wait at the end of the line? Also, it seems that every group has a different artifact that leads to Himemiko-sama. I wonder when the knowledge that our mc may return home would sink in tho. Seeing the effects on the Toyotomi, surely the members in Nobunaga would also feel loss >> )). Thanks for the chapter!

      We’ve almost caught up to where the game is at currently so I’m afraid I’ll be in the same boat as everyone too now in trying to guess what’ll happen next, haha. Yeah, I’ve been wondering about the artifacts too because it’s like:

      Oda = knife
      Toyotomi = mirror
      Uesugi = ??? (didn’t catch it, oops)
      Takeda = necklace
      Sanada = comb
      Date = sword
      7th army = ???

      Are they just random items? Do they form into anything? My first theory was like a set of armor or something but a necklace and a comb and a mirror…?? Unless those items are things a warrior-lady should carry on her too |D;; who knows.

      Ah, that’s true. I feel like they did think about that a bit since Ranmaru and Katsuie talked to her about that and admitted they’d be sad if she left, and that Nobunaga liked her too. I feel like the Oda army might be better adjusted anyway because their loyalty belongs to Nobunaga first and foremost, meanwhile Nobunaga hasn’t even considered that she might leave because how dare someone leave without his permission?? Haha, I’ve finally collected all his interaction scenes so I’m slowly going through those but they’re great in showing how Nobunaga’s mind works and how at times he’s just so domineering it’s like “oh okay”.
