SNB Date ~ Chapter 4.4 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 4: Forgotten Fragments of History–

Revealing that she came from a parallel universe, they started to search for Himemiko together.

First, they tried to search for the “sacred treasure” necessary for knowing Himemiko’s location, and so she went out with Shigezane but…

Chapter 4.4

Shigezane-san pointed his sword at the Sanada Army commanders who had trespassed into Date territory.

[SHIGEZANE]: “Get behind me.”

[YUZUKI]: “Shigezane-san… you can’t possibly be planning to fight!?”

.[SHIGEZANE]: “Of course. They came into our territory without permission and hunted for clues on Himemiko.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “As a commander of Date, there’s no way I can pull back now.”

[YUZUKI]: “But there’s three of them, you know!? If you make one mistake, you might die–“

[SHIGEZANE]: “I’m not afraid of dying. It’s much better compared to running away here and looking cowardly!”

[SAIZOU]: “Hmph, fool. If you fight me, you’ll only lose in a more deplorable way rather than running.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Keep saying that!”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Kugh… he’s strong… but if you’re only paying attention to me……”

[SASUKE]: “Eat this, Flame Ring Technique!!”

[SAIZOU]: “Rip to shreds! Wind Blade Dance!!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Wha!? Guagh!”

[SASUKE]: “Heheeh, striking at an enemy’s opening is a ninja’s way of fighting!”

[YUZUKI]: “Shigezane-san!”

[YUZUKI]: (Even if it’s Shigezane-san… he’s at a disadvantage with three opponents……!)

[YUZUKI]: “Shigezane-san! Let’s run away here and call for Masamune-san and the others!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “No……! I’m the one…… who’ll protect Date’s territory!”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “…… Stubborn.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “GUAGH!?”

[YUZUKI]: (…… Even if I stay here, I can’t be of any help to Shigezane-san……!)

[YUZUKI]: “Shigezane-san! I’m…… going to call for Masamune-san and the others!”

[SASUKE]: “Woah. Sorry, but I can’t let you go–“

[IMARI]: “I won’t let you lay one finger on her!”

[SASUKE]: “Uwaah!? Don’t cling to my face! Get off you white tanuki!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Great job, Imari! Leave the rest to me!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Go after her! Don’t let her be alone!”

[IMARI]: “Got it! Shigezane-san…… stay safe!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “You too! Now, hurry and go!”

[YUZUKI]: “Haa… haa……”

The two of us ran back the way we came. But Date’s castle continued to be seen in the distance, and we weren’t getting close to it at all.

[IMARI]: “We’ve been running all this time…… we should rest a little……”

[YUZUKI]: “We can’t…… we have to hurry and call for help…… or else Shigezane-san will……!”

I collapsed. I tried to get up but I couldn’t put any strength into my exhausted legs.

[YUZUKI]: (I have to hurry…… Shigezane-san could be killed……!)

[KOJUUROU]: “Hm……? Over there, is that……?”

[MASAMUNE]: “It looks like it……”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh…… Kojuurou-san!? And Masamune-san too……!”

The two came closer to me. Kojuurou-san, who jumped off his horse, helped me up.

[YUZUKI]: “Why are you two here……?”

[KOJUUROU]: “We heard from villagers that they’ve seen suspicious men wandering around here lately…… and so we came to scout.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Hey… I don’t see Shigezane, could he be……”

[YUZUKI]: “He’s fighting with werewolves from the Sanada Army! Even though there’s three of them!”

[MASAMUNE]: “Wha……!? Take us to where Shigezane is!”

[YUZUKI]: “Over there, at that old castle……!”

Masamune-san put me on his horse and, together with Kojuurou-san, dashed to the old castle.

[SASUKE]: “Haa…… haa…… we’re three people yet he’s this persistent…… just how stubborn is this guy……”

[SAIZOU]: “Haa…… haa…… but…… it seems he cannot stand anymore……”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Now’s the chance…… to get the hidden room……”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Wait……! Shit… I can’t stand……”

[SASUKE]: “Kamanosuke! Hurry and check out the hidden room, then we’ll retre–“

[MASAMUNE]: “–Haah!”

[SASUKE]: “Guaah!? What, a newcomer!?”

Masamune-san and Kojuurou-san, who got off their horses, attacked the Sanada commanders savagely.

[KOJUUROU]: “Shigezane! Are you safe?!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “This is… nothing… ugugh……!?”

[KOJUUROU]: “Those wounds are serious…… Leave the rest to us!”

As the sounds of Masamune-san and Kojuurou-san’s weapons clashing with the enemies’ echoed, I ran over to Shigezane-san.

[YUZUKI]: “Shigezane-san! Are you okay!?”

[SHIGEZANE]: “…… Dammit……! I…… couldn’t win…… fuck……!”

[YUZUKI]: “That’s not true at all. Shigezane-san, you did more than enough!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “No…… they trespassed into our lands…… and I couldn’t even chase them off…… I’ve…… failed as a Date commander……!”

[YUZUKI]: “Shigezane-san……”

[SAIZOU]: “Hmph, even though you are the general of the Date Army, you are powerless before our coordination.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Che… these ninjas are sneaky……”

[KOJUUROU]: “As you’d expect, two against three puts us at a disadvantage……”

The two who came to rescue Shigezane-san were gradually being cornered.

[YUZUKI]: (At this rate… even Masamune-san and Kojuurou-san will be……)

[YUZUKI]: (… I have to do what I’m able to do too……!)

[YUZUKI]: “Shigezane-san. Please drink my blood.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Huh……!? I can’t… do that.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “This is a battle between Date and Sanada…… we’re gonna defeat them with our own powers. Besides, if those Sanada guys find out……”

[YUZUKI]: “I’m a member of the Date Army too!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “You……!”

[YUZUKI]: “Drink my blood and save Masamune-san and Kojuurou-san. And please… protect this land!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “…… Alright. Please lend me your blood… and your strength!”

I nodded and supported Shigezane-san’s head, who was covered in wounds and couldn’t get up, and drew him close to my neck.

[SHIGEZANE]: “If it hurts, tell me immediately.”

[YUZUKI]: “I’ll be okay. So, please.”

Shigezane-san pierced my neck with his fangs. There was a stinging pain. After that, a tingling sensation spread through my body–

[MASAMUNE]: “We should have brought… soldiers, huh, Kojuurou.”

[KOJUUROU]: “It’s uncharacteristic to hear complaints from Date Masamune.”

[MASAMUNE]: “…… Indeed. If a dilemma isn’t enjoyable, the title of being “contrary” will be lost!”

[SAIZOU]: “Hmph, you’re quite full of spirit. However, the disadvantage of numbers won’t be covered by enthusiasm–“

[SHIGEZANE]: “–Disadvantage of numbers? Aren’t you forgetting someone!?”

[SAIZOU]: “Wha!? Guaaaagh!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Oops, maybe I overdid it a little? Haha, right now I don’t feel like I can lose to anyone!”

[KOJUUROU]: “Shigezane! Did you take her blood……?”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Aa. I got help from her. Now…… let’s chase these guys out!”

[SASUKE]: “What’s going on!? Wasn’t that guy all battered just now!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Uraagh!”

[SASUKE]: “GUAGH!? That power……! Was this guy that strong……!?”

[YUZUKI]: (Wow… it’s mostly Shigezane by himself who’s driving the Sanada commanders to the wall……!)

[SASUKE]: “Haa…… haa…… I can’t, I’m at my limit……”

[SAIZOU]: “The numbers are equal but the situation is…… unfavorable for us……”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “…… Let’s run.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Learn from this and don’t ever step foot into Date lands again!”

[YUZUKI]: “Everyone! Are you all okay!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Of course! With the three of us together, we wouldn’t lose to anyone!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Right? Masamune, Kojuurou–“

[KOJUUROU]: “You…… MORON!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Owww! What was that for!”

[KOJUUROU]: “Why didn’t you withdraw! You should have known that it was a poor plan to fight in that situation, right!?”

[SHIGEZANE]: “That’s ’cause…… there’s no way I could withdraw!? Those Sanada commanders were making fun of us……”

[KOJUUROU]: “If Yuzuki-san hadn’t told us where you were, you could have been killed!”

[KOJUUROU]: “Because you didn’t withdraw, she and Imari had to run towards the castle by themselves……”

[KOJUUROU]: “It’s a relief that they are unharmed but… if they had been attacked by yakuma, they would have died!”

[YUZUKI]: “Kojuurou-san…… me, Imari-kun, and everyone is safe, so you don’t have to be so angry……”

[KOJUUROU]: “NO, that is just an opinion based on hindsight.”

[KOJUUROU]: “I’m always telling him to correct his habit of being overconfident, and yet Shigezane–“

[SHIGEZANE]: “…… Kgh!”

Shigezane-san turned on his heel and ran away somewhere like that.

[YUZUKI]: “Shigezane-san!? Please wait, Shigezane-san!”

      T__T scolded by Kojuurou again. If you can imagine his angry voice from his 5* card, he’s using the same tone here. So scaryy.

    Huh…. it looks like a combination of blood drinking and reinforcement. I wonder if the Sanada trio know about awakening and are off to report to Yukimura and Nobuyuki.

      It sounds like they recognize him as Shigezane since they’re like “wait a second wasn’t he all beat up!?” but yeah you’d think they’d be like “??? did he dye his hair in the meantime?” haha. I don’t think they saw the blood sucking because Kojuurou and Masamune were fighting them but… risky risky!

      Remember Kojuurou’s angry yelling voice from his 5* card? That came back here too :’D he’s so scary when he yells but jhfkgjfhfh you know he’s just super worried about everyone in the Date Army (like me, cause they’re all reckless boys).

        Oh yes, I can feel his tone enough to keep me terrified and I can’t believe he can say those cold words 😰 but it’s a sign that he cares for you like this chapter T_T
        If I was there, I would have to hide in Yuzuki’s back ^^’
        Oh that reminds me, Masamune said the same thing about Kojuro being terrifying when he’s mad but his sister is the worst, so that means he can be scared at this 2 😂
