SNB Date ~ Chapter 1.5 ~

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 1.5

[YUZUKI]: “U-Um…… Masamune-san? I’m not supposed to open this package?”

[MASAMUNE]: “No, uh…… open it later.”

[YUZUKI]: “……?”

Not understanding Masamune-san’s intention, I was baffled. Shigezane-san burst out in laughter at this situation.

[SHIGEZANE]: “What’re you being shy about, Masamune! Just be honest!”

[MASAMUNE]: “I’m not being shy.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Then I can be the one to say it, right? That’s Masamune’s home cooking.”

[MASAMUNE]: “WHA…… Oi, Shigezane!”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh… home cooking!?”

[YUZUKI]: (Masamune-san can cook. That’s a bit unexpected……)

[YUZUKI]: “Umm…… thank you very much. I’ll savor eating it.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Aren’t you glad, Masamune. It was worth getting up early to make it.”

[MASAMUNE]: “I got up at my usual time. Don’t say bullshit.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “It’s not bullshit. I watched you secretly, you know?”

[SHIGEZANE]: “I heard you muttering clearly, Masamune, wondering if she’ll accept it–“

[MASAMUNE]: “Shigezane…… if you say anything more I’ll shut you up by force.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Oh, you wanna go? It’s been a while since we’ve tried to see who’s stronger!”

I quietly opened the package beside the two who were quarreling.

Inside the package was stacked boxes. From their weight I could tell they were packed with dishes.

[YUZUKI]: (Masamune-san made this……)

[YUZUKI]: “…… Huh? But why for me……?”

[MASAMUNE]: “It was simply a whim. There’s no deeper meaning.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “What’re you saying. It’s thanks for receiving her blood, right?”

[MASAMUNE]: “N-No! That’s not the reason!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Then an apology for hurting her?”

[MASAMUNE]: “That’s not it! I said it was a whim. There’s no other reason.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Oi, oi, be honest, Masamune.”

[YUZUKI]: (I don’t know whether it’s a thank you or an apology, but he did it for me……)

[YUZUKI]: “Masamune-san, thank you very much. I’m…… happy.”

[MASAMUNE]: “…………”

Masamune-san turned his face away. I felt like there was a slight redness to his cheeks–

[MASAMUNE]: “…… Don’t get carried away.”

However, in an instant, Masamune-san glared at me with a cold eye.

He grabbed my chin and forced my face up.

[MASAMUNE]: “No, actually, I’ll have you return to the prison.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh? U-Um…… Masamune-san? Did I say something I wasn’t supposed to……?”

[MASAMUNE]: “You pushed your luck, not understanding your own position.”

[YUZUKI]: “That wasn’t my inten……”

[MASAMUNE]: “Be silent. Listen, I have use for your blood but I could not care less for you personally.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Until you know your position, you won’t ever leave the prison again.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Hey, Masamune! That’s not a way to talk!”

[MASAMUNE]: “Shut up. Oi, Kojuurou. Return this girl and her accompanying beast to the prison. This is an order.”

[KOJUUROU]: “…… Acknowledged.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Hey, Kojuurou! What’re you saying too!”

[KOJUUROU]: “If it is the orders of the general of the Date Army, Masamune-sama, instead of Masamune, then I will simply obey.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Kojuurou, I leave the rest to you.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Acknowledged.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Che! I don’t agree! Masamune, wait up! Say what you like but……”

[KOJUUROU]: “Now then, shall we go?”

Kojuurou-san gently touched my shoulder. When I turned and saw his expression there was something like an apology there.

[IMARI]: “In the end, we’ve back tracked into prison again, huh……”

[YUZUKI]: “He said I could go out and then he said for me to return…… I don’t know what Masamune is thinking.”

[YUZUKI]: (I thought that he might have been a nice person when I saw how he had worried about his soldiers despite his own personal injuries, but……)

[YUZUKI]: (To say that he only has use for my blood is like he’s treating me as a tool……)

[YUZUKI]: (A person who would lock me up the moment it becomes inconvenient…… is someone I can’t trust in the end.)

[YUZUKI]: “…… Imari-kun. Let’s get out of this castle.”

[IMARI]: “I think that’s for the best too. But the keys are hidden in another place, so I can’t do the same thing as last time…… What do we do.”

[YUZUKI]: “Hmmm…… I wonder if there’s some way we can open the prison doors……”

[YUZUKI]: “H-Huh!? I just pushed it lightly and it opened……?”

[YUZUKI]: (Could it be that Kojuurou-san…… didn’t lock it……)

[IMARI]: “With this we can easily escape!”

[YUZUKI]: “R-Right……”

[YUZUKI]: (I feel guilty because it’s like betraying Kojuurou-san’s trust, when he didn’t lock the door, but……)

[YUZUKI]: (But…… I can’t stay locked up forever, huh.)

[YUZUKI]: “…… Let’s go, Imari-kun!”

[IMARI]: “Yes!”

[YUZUKI]: (This place…… was the room where Masamune-san and the others were before when I had to hide my footsteps and pass……)

[IMARI]: “If we’re found again it’ll be a problem. Let’s move carefully.”

[YUZUKI]: “Mhm. That’s right.”

[MASAMUNE]: “…… You’re persistent, Shigezane.”

[YUZUKI]: (This voice…… is Msamune-san?)

[SHIGEZANE]: “That’s because what you said just then wasn’t a way to talk, you know!?”

[KOJUUROU]: “…… Indeed, it was a somewhat terrible thing to say to someone who saved your life.”

[YUZUKI]: (Kojuurou-san and Shigezane-san are supporting me……)

[MASAMUNE]: “My life wasn’t saved by that person. I was only saved by that person’s blood.”

[YUZUKI]: (…… I feel bad for both of them but still, in the end, I can’t stay with Masamune-san.)

[IMARI]: “…… Are you okay?”

[YUZUKI]: “…… Let’s go, Imari-kun.”

Silencing my footsteps, I passed in front of the room and this time I slipped out of the castle safely.

    this is my initial reason why I can’t like Masamune. I would have stopped reading if not for Masamune gradually became less harsh in the future chapters.

      Ehehe, he’s a really proud and prickly dude |D;; but yeah I would have gotten tired of him too if he didn’t warm up later thankfully (although Shigezane and Kojuurou might have kept me going too).

    Now I see….. I started to like them but…… hehehe ^^’ 1st is Shigezane because well cherry and can read people’s feelings especially his cousin, 2nd Kojuro because he is just like Kagemochi and Masanobu a little, he is polite and considerate on ladies or maybe I’m wrong ^^’ and lastly Masamune, I still not feel warm to him but what I like is his ears SO CUUUTTTTEEE!!!!!! LIKE SHIH TSU……..!!!!! >▼< ♥♥♥

      Ahaha, yeah Shigezane is super cheery and nice! Although he has a really stubborn side and can be overly prideful. Kojuurou… SUPER nice and polite but at times he can be too subservient :( I wish he’d put more importance on himself but he’s really devoted to serving Masamune. And then… yeah… Masamune |D;; from the sounds of it you don’t seem to like tsunderes as much either, haha. It’s kinda strange how Masamune is the only one with floppy ears (especially if they’re wolves) but oh gosh agreed with how cute it makes him.

    Ah…Masamune is one to be easily swayed by pride and frustration it seems ^^;; . Fighto Yuzuki~ At least Shigezane is passionately fighting for your side~ Thanks for the chapter!

      Ilinox responded:

      That’s what I think too! It makes him a bit more understandable though because Shigezane was teasing him pretty hard… if Shigezane didn’t do that then maybe Masamune would have just handed her the bento and then left LOL.

    YES, YOU GO SHIGEZANE! Go show Masamune what you’re made of, hehe!

    I’m shocked though… what could Masamune be thinking, throwing her back in prison again? I’m kind of confused, but I think questions’ll be answered in chapter 2 or something; it seems like their escape was hindered and… Imari is either severely injured or… dead? I sure hope not.

    Anyways, thanks for the chapter! I love it so far, despite everything that’s happened! (: All of them deserve all the love they can get w(^ = ^)w

      I remember when I read this for the first time I was rolling my eyes at how hot and cold Masamune was (and feeling annoyed, oops, haha) but looking at this part again I actually think he just got teased way too hard. I mean that’s no excuse for him lashing out and throwing her back in prison again but with how much Shigezane was teasing him, he probably took Yuzuki’s response as part of that teasing too and felt like “how dare these two poke at my pride as the big bad general!” kind of thing and reacted without thought.

      <33 We're going to get over this rough start soon and soon Date will be the cutest family ever– //bricked.

    Yuzuki may have escaped with Imari but there are some problems with this plan of action, even though her reasoning for not staying is understandable. She would be in deep trouble if she encounters bandits or even worse the yakuma and she doesn’t have Katsue’s training to outrun them either.

    Yuzuki is more likely to wander into any one of the armies’ territory. She might get herself captured if any one of those armies managed to find out about her blood’s ability and connection to Himemeko, that is if Date doesn’t retrieve her right away.

      Bluesheep said:

      But then again the escape could be intentional, since the Date group has demonstrated to be rather cautious and pragmatic in their opening chapter.

        Ilinox responded:
        December 6, 2017 at 11:14

        True true to all your points! Although, unfortunately, in this universe/version right now I don’t think Yuzuki knows about the yakuma yet or how dangerous it can actually be outside. Then again it’s like 1) do you want to risk maaaaybe running into bandits or 2) stay in prison forever and who knows what Masamune will do to you because he certainly doesn’t seem like a nice person. It’s a tough situation :<

        As much as I love the Date army their beginning is so rough that if Yuzuki had actually wandered into Uesugi, Takeda, or Sanada, that might have actually been better for her |D and with her blood she's like a super special bargaining chip.

        Haha, I think the Oda route has influenced you try and see plots in everything! But it's true that this could be the case too. Date likes to have sneaky plans.

    I really like how Imari-kun is playing such an active role in this route, it’s really nice having him paired up with Yuzuki-san like this~ :3

      Ilinox responded:
      December 6, 2017 at 11:11

      Same!! It’s a shame he does so little in Oda and Toyotomi (then again I guess there’s more than enough excitement going on in those routes) so it’s great to see him being really helpful here. Not to mention he’s like the only support Yuzuki has right now since the Date gang is being mean :(
