SNB Date ~ Chapter 5.1 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 5: In the Darkness, the True Appearance–

They snuck into the Sanada territory, seeking the “sacred treasure”.

By chance, she was saved by the general of the Sanada Army, Sanada Yukimura, in the castle town. He hasn’t seem to noticed their true identity yet but…

Chapter 5.1

Returning back to the castle, we gathered in Masamune-san’s room and deciphered the contents of the old documents that were found in the old castle’s hidden room.

[MASAMUNE]: “I see…… There’s quite a lot of details written about the “sacred treasure”.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Aa. To think that this much information had been sleeping in Date’s territory……”

.[KOJUUROU]: “It’s regrettable that we didn’t find these old documents back when we investigated that place previously……”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Hehe. It was worth it to go that far, huh!”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes!”

[YUZUKI]: (I’m not much help but if I could be of some use to the Date Army that’d be nice……)

[IMARI]: “So, um! Where’s Himemiko-sama!? Is there anything written on Himemiko-sama’s location!?”

[MASAMUNE]: “Calm down, Imari. What’s written here is the “sacred treasure” that can find the location of Himemiko.”

[IMARI]: “Then where’s this “sacred treasure”!?”

Everyone’s attention gathered on Masamune-san who held the old document. Masamune-san looked at everyone and then slowly said–

[MASAMUNE]: “The “sacred treasure” is…… in the territory of the Sanada Army, governed by Sanada Yukimura.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Wha……!?”

[YUZUKI]: “The Sanada Army…… if I’m not mistaken, that was the group that Shigezane-san fought before……?”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Aa. It’s the army that Sasuke, Saizou, and Kamanosuke belong to……”

[KOJUUROU]: “If the “sacred treasure” is in the Sanada territory…… we cannot readily take it, hm.”

[IMARI]: “Why not!? If it’s a clue connected to Himemiko-sama, then we should go right now–“

[KOJUUROU]: “The Sanada territory is an enemy territory. They would not let us pass, to say nothing of obtaining a “sacred treasure” which would be of use to unifying the country.”

[KOJUUROU]: “In other words, if we steal it from them…… a war with the Sanada Army would start.”

[YUZUKI]: “War……”

The time when Masamune-san and the others returned from their previous battle came across my mind.

[YUZUKI]: (The soldiers were covered in wounds and Masamune-san nearly died…… that kind of thing might happen again……!?)

[MASAMUNE]: “No, we won’t start a war.”

[KOJUUROU]: “What…? Then how do we go about this?”

[MASAMUNE]: “We won’t bring soldiers and we’ll sneak in with a small number. We’ll take the “sacred treasure” and escape before they notice.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “A small number, you say…… but without soldiers we won’t be able to fight, you know? What’re you going to do if we’re found.”

[MASAMUNE]: “If we’re found then we’ll have no choice but to be killed.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “…… Putting us aside, if you’re killed, Masamune, the Date Army will be over.”

[MASAMUNE]: “That’s right. If we fail that’s the most dangerous thing. And that’s why we’re going with this plan.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “It’s anooother “perverse” plan, huh. Well, whatever, we’ve won up to now like that!”

[MASAMUNE]: “Aa. And, naturally, it’ll also be a victory this time.”

[MASAMUNE]: “The ones who’ll sneak into the Sanada territory will be me, Shigezane, Kojuurou, and… you. That’s all.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Wha…!? Hey, Masamune, there’s something wrong there!”

[IMARI]: “Yeah! Please let me come along too! I want to find a clue to Himemiko-sama as fast as possible!”

[MASAMUNE]: “Hm? Ah, that’s right. If you want to follow, do as you like. There’s nothing to be dissatisfied about now, right, Kojuurou.”

[KOJUUROU]: “No, I wasn’t talking about Imari! Why are you bringing Yuzuki-san along on such a dangerous plan!?”

[MASAMUNE]: “Because there’s a description in this old document that’s been on my mind.”

Masamune-san opened the document and turned the page so that Kojuurou-san could read it.

[KOJUUROU]: “The “sacred treasure”… reacts only to those who are worthy to meet Himemiko……?”

[MASAMUNE]: “Yeah. If I remember correctly, you were led by an unfamiliar woman’s voice and came to Shinga, right?”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah…… yes, that’s right.”

[MASAMUNE]: “And Himemiko knew that you would come to this world……”

[MASAMUNE]: “In that case, the voice that summoned you could be Himemiko’s.”

[MASAMUNE]: “So the possibility of you being the one worthy to meet Himemiko is more than enough.”

[KOJUUROU]: “That’s… nothing more than a speculation though!? We cannot allow her to accompany us in this dangerous plan on such uncertain grounds–“

[MASAMUNE]: “Kojuurou, have you forgotten the reason how stray werewolves like us obtained this territory?”

[MASAMUNE]: “It’s because we jumped into danger and risked everything on uncertain plans.”

[KOJUUROU]: “That’s certainly how we did this up to now. However, this time……”

Kojuurou-san said this and glanced at me with a concerned expression.

[YUZUKI]: (Kojuurou-san… is worried about me……)

[YUZUKI]: (It’s true that I’m scared about going to a place where we might be killed if we’re found…… but……!)

[KOJUUROU]: “In the end, I cannot accept this. She should remain in the castle–“

[YUZUKI]: “…… I’m going.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Wha…!? But……”

[YUZUKI]: “Kojuurou-san, I’m really thankful that you’re worried about me… but…”

[YUZUKI]: “I want to look for Himemiko-sama as well.”

[YUZUKI]: “So to let everyone else go through danger while I wait in a safe place…… I can’t do that.”

[KOJUUROU]: “That may be the case, but……”

Indifferent to Kojuurou-san who was still anxious, Masamune smiled with satisfaction.

[MASAMUNE]: “It’s decided. Everyone, start preparing. We’re going to invade the Sanada territory and take the “sacred treasure”!”

 

Having decided to set off to the Sanada territory, Masamune-san and the others started to prepare their horses and provisions.

[SHIGEZANE]: “Hey, are you don’t preparing for the trip?”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah, yes. But I can’t ride a horse so I was wondering what to do……”

[KOJUUROU]: “In that case, please ride mine. I’ve attached a step up stirrup to make it easier to get on and off–“

[YUZUKI]: “Really? Thank yo–“

I started to thank him but then stiffened a little. Kojuurou-san had put on a thick blanket, back rest, and flanchard on his own horse.

[KOJUUROU]: “As you are to accompany us, I will protect you with these thorough preparations.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Please do not worry. I will bring you to the Sanada Army unharmed without fail.”

[YUZUKI]: (T-That’s a little overboard……)

[MASAMUNE]: “…… Kojuurou.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Hm? Is something the matter, Masamune.”

[MASAMUNE]: “It stands out so remove it all.”

[KOJUUROU]: “What!?”

[MASAMUNE]: “Hey.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh…? Wah……!”

Masamune-san lifted me up with a fed up look and placed me on the back of his own horse.

[MASAMUNE]: “You’ll ride my horse. That guy is too nice to women.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Ahaha. It’s ’cause Kojuurou’s been whipped by his sister.”

[KOJUUROU]: “…… Shut up.”

Masamune-san sighed again and then turned a chilly look to me.

[MASAMUNE]: “I’m not going to spoil you like Kojuurou.”

[YUZUKI]: “O… Okay. I understand.”

[YUZUKI]: (Huh……? But the saddle feels kind of soft……)

Thinking that, I confirmed that there was a cushion fastened to the saddle.

[YUZUKI]: “This is……”

[MASAMUNE]: “…… For camping. There was no other place to pack it.”

[YUZUKI]: “Eh? But… cushions aren’t used for camp–“

[MASAMUNE]: “…… Shut up, or you’ll be the only one to walk.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Hey, hey, then she can just ride my horse!”

[MASAMUNE]: “No.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Why!”

[MASAMUNE]: “You’ve been trusted to be the lookout during our march. We’ve reduced the load on your horse for that. It’ll be troubling to have a burden ride with you and slow your horse’s feet.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “One extra person isn’t anything big! She’s super light. Look.”

[YUZUKI]: “Wah!? S-Shigezane-san!?”

Shigezane-san came side by side with his horse and reached out his hands to lift me up. When he did though, Masamune-san knocked his arms away.

[MASAMUNE]: “You’re the lookout.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “What. Aren’t you saying that just because you want her to ride on your own horse?”

[MASAMUNE]: “Don’t be silly.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Your face is red.”

[MASAMUNE]: “…… Don’t say bullshit.”

[KOJUUROU]: “In the end, I believe riding my horse would be the safest–“

[MASAMUNE]: “Kojuurou, hurry up and take down those hindrances.”

[YUZUKI]: (Uh… umm……)

[MASAMUNE]: “Anyway, you’ll be behind me. Let’s stop this idiotic dispute and head out to the Sanada territory.”

(T/N: WELCOME TO MY FAVORITE CHAPTER! I almost want to say every single army’s Chapter 5 is my favorite because that’s when they’re like “okay, you know enough about the characters in this army. NOW BATTLE ROYALE WITH THE REST!!” and the drama just ramps up, haha.)

    Lmao my sides xD. “He’s too nice to women,” he says. Looks at Masamune with his cushion obviously meant for softening mc’s ride. Thanks for this amusing chapter!

      I love these dorks LOL there’s too much to comment on it. Shigezane teasing Masamune. Kojuurou’s crazy overprotectiveness. Masamune also wanting to have her ride with him but being tsun–

    Hahahaha Masamune cock blocking the other two. Maybe he’s worried, Kojuurou being his gentlemanly self and Shigezane a welcoming fuzz ball of fun.

      They can be so dorky sometimes I have a hard time really imagining what they were like before MC joined them ’cause Kojuurou mentions that they used to be really merciless and brutal. And now look at how protective they are of her LOL.
