SNB Date ~ Chapter 1.3 ~

Chapter 1: The Truth Hidden in Blood–

As soon as she arrived at the castle she was thrown into a prison without a clue as to what to do.

In order to return to her old world, she slipped out of the prison with Imari’s help, and searched for clues on “Himemiko” but…

Chapter 1.3

It was quite some time after having been returned to prison that the castle interior suddenly became noisy.

[YUZUKI]: “Maybe Masamune-san and the others came back? If I remember correctly he said… he was departing for the front.”

[IMARI]: “That might be it. But still it seems a bit too noisy……”

.[YUZUKI]: “That’s true…… I can hear yelling and groaning, and also there’s a strange smell……”

[YUZUKI]: “Is this… the smell of blood…?”

[WOUNDED SOLDIER]: “Uugh…… it hurts, it hurts……!”

[SOLDIER]: “There are too many wounded, we don’t have any more places to lay them down!”

[SOLDIER]: “The cellars are still empty, right! Bring them there for now!”

[YUZUKI]: “Eh… these people……”

[IMARI]: “They look like… the Date Army’s soldiers.”

Soldiers were carried one after another to the cellars and wounded soldiers were laid down in front of our prison.

All of them were horribly injured. Raw sword wounds and bright red blood spread across the floor.

It was a sight I had never seen in my old world and I reflexively averted my eyes.

[KOJUUROU]: “Prioritize treating the critically wounded! Those who can move, help out with the treatments!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Shit, it’s impossible, we don’t have enough hands! Someone, go to the castle town and gather help!”

Kojuurou-san and Shigezane-san, who might have came to see the state of the people carried to the cellars, ran around with grave expressions.

[KOJUUROU]: “Kgh…… Just how many soldiers will it be too late for while we’re gathering help……”

[YUZUKI]: (Even though everyone is terribly hurt, the majority of them are unattended……)

[YUZUKI]: (If things are left like this then I’m sure a lot of people will die……)

[SOLDIER]: “Uuugh… some… one…… help……”

[YUZUKI]: (These people who might die…… I can’t just stand here… and watch!)

[YUZUKI]: “Um! I’ll help with treating people!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Huh? It’s true right now I’d even borrow the help of a cat…”

[SHIGEZANE]: “But are you okay with that? We caught you and locked you up, you know?”

[YUZUKI]: “That and this are different things! I can’t just stand here and watch like this!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Oh…… you’re a really nice person.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Hey, Kojuurou! It’s okay to let this girl out of the cell, right?”

[KOJUUROU]: “But… if she were to escape……”

[YUZUKI]: “I promise. I won’t run away. Once everyone’s treatment is done, I’ll go back to my cell.”

[KOJUUROU]: “…………”

Kojuurou-san stared at me for a short while with an ascertaining look.

[KOJUUROU]: “…… If you try anything strange, you understand what will happen, yes?”

There was a cold feeling of intimidation in Kojuurou-san’s voice. I nodded while feeling a little of that pressure.

[YUZUKI]: “Yes!”

[KOJUUROU]: “…… Understood. I cannot let these soldiers die either…… I’ll trust you.”

When I was let out of the cell, I started on emergency treatments.

Desperately trying to remember the things I learned in my health classes, I stopped the bleeding and wrapped people up in bandages.

[MASAMUNE]: “Are there enough…… people to help with treatment……?”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Masamune!? You’re badly injured so you were told to rest, weren’t you!?”

[MASAMUNE]: “This extent…… isn’t a bad injury.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Enough with your “contrariness” and go back to your room quickly! If you move around too much the wound’ll open and you’ll die!”

[MASAMUNE]: “I told you it’s not a bad injury. More importantly, I’ll help around with treatment too. Give me bandages.”

[YUZUKI]: (Even though he’s covered in wounds he’s worried about his soldiers……?)

[YUZUKI]: (I thought he was a selfish and egocentric person but Masamune-san is actually–)

As I looked at him with feelings of wonder, I met eyes with Masamune-san.

[MASAMUNE]: “You–“

[YUZUKI]: “Huh……?”

Masamune-san approached me with a stern expression.

[YUZUKI]: (Is he angry that I’m out of the prison……?)

During the time I was thinking that, Masamune-san rapidly came close and–

[YUZUKI]: “Wah!?”

Before I knew it, I was pushed down and Masamune-san covered over me from above.

[YUZUKI]: “What are you doing suddenly……!?”

Masamune-san, who didn’t respond even when I called out to him, pressed his face into my neck.

[MASAMUNE]: “This…… smell of blood……”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Oi, Masamune! What’re you doing! I told you that if you move you’ll open your wounds!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “I’ll apologize for going ahead and taking that girl out of her cell, so calm down!”

Shigezane-san yanked Masamune-san off. But Masamune-san continued to stare at me in a feverish manner.

[MASAMUNE]: “That smell…… the blood……”

[KOJUUROU]: “Masamune, what’s wrong? You’re acting strange.”

[IMARI]: “This reaction…… Could it be…… no, but that shouldn’t be……”

[YUZUKI]: “Imari-kun…? Do you know something…?”

[IMARI]: “It’s exactly like when the Gekka Tribe were in front of Himemiko-sama……”

[KOJUUROU]: “In front of Himemiko……? If I’m not mistaken, I’ve heard of that.”

[KOJUUROU]: “If a Gekka Tribe member drinks Himemiko’s blood, any injuries are healed, and their original lost power will be restored……”

[YUZUKI]: “…… Come to think of it, Masamune-san mentioned… the smell of my blood… just now.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Is it possible that this girl’s blood has the same power as Himemiko…..?”

[MASAMUNE]: “Gugh……. *cough cough*.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “This is bad! His injuries have opened……!”

[KOJUUROU]: “Kgh… the bleeding won’t stop…! At this rate……”

[KOJUUROU]: “…… Masamune, drink that girl’s blood. Perhaps your wounds may heal.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “That’s right! If that can help then try to drink some!”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh……? Drink my… blood…!?”

At this sudden event I was a bit scared. Masamune-san stared at my face like that……

[MASAMUNE]: “…… No need. Who would drink that girl’s blood……!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Now’s not the time to act tough! You’re going to die like this!”

[MASAMUNE]: “Shut up! I absolutely won’t…… *cough cough*.”

Masamune-san spat out blood along with his coughing. Blood was steadily pouring out from his stomach too, which he was holding.

[YUZUKI]: (At this rate Masamune-san really might die……)

[YUZUKI]: (It’s scary but… I can’t just leave him alone like this…!)

[YUZUKI]: “I understand. If his injuries might be healed with my blood then……”

[MASAMUNE]: “This is none of your…… concern! I said I don’t need it……!”

[YUZUKI]: “Then……!”

I pulled out a short sword from a collapsed soldier.

[SHIGEZANE]: “Oi, what’re you doing!?”

When Shigezane-san and the others started to reach for the sword, I gripped the short sword’s blade and sliced my own palm.

[SHIGEZANE + KOJUUROU]: “…… Wha!?”

I held out my bleeding palm in Masamune-san’s direction.

[YUZUKI]: “Masamune-san, please drink my blood.”

[MASAMUNE]: “It’s sweet… the smell of blood…… kugh…… no, I won’t drink your blood……”

[MASAMUNE]: “Your blood…… I won’t put it… in my… mouth……”

Even though he was saying that, Masamune-san brought his face near my palm.

Masamune-san stared at the blood dripping from my fingertips…… and, in the end, caught a drop of blood with his tongue.

Immediately after that–

Masamune-san grabbed my arm and pulled it close before starting to drag his tongue across the palm of my hand in a trance.

[YUZUKI]: “Ow……!”

[YUZUKI]: (It hurts… but what is this… my palm is starting to tingle little by little……)

[YUZUKI]: (The tingling… is spreading throughout my body……)

[SHIGEZANE]: “Wha…… Oi, Masamune! Your injuries are closing immediately!?”

[IMARI]: “It’s the same as when the Gekka Tribe drank Himemiko-sama’s blood…… so her blood really does have the same power as Himemiko-sama’s……!?”

Eventually, when Masamune-san had licked up my blood from my palm without a single drop remaining, his eye widened as he came to his senses.

[MASAMUNE]: “What is this power……!? What exactly are you……?”

      If he doesn’t want to be called cute and adorable then he shouldn’t have such floppy and floofy ears!!

    Oh no, Masamune-san can look cute when he’s being Demure…

      He’s sooooooo cute when he’s embarrassed and confesses to his true feelings. But in order to reach that you have to go through so many thorns and he kinda lashes out if he thinks his pride is being stepped on |D;; *coughs chapter 1.5 coughs*.

      But yes!! Date’s awakening forms are hilarious because it’s like everyone swapped colors actually. Masamune takes Shigezane’s white hair > Shigezane’s awakening form takes Kojuurou’s green hair > Kojuurou’s awakening takes Masamune’s black-ish hair… |D
