SNB Date ~ Chapter 5.3 ~

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 5.3

[YUKIMURA]: “I cannot allow you two to leave the Sanada territory.”

Yukimura-san called us to a stop and Masamune-san quietly placed his hand on his sword.

[YUZUKI]: (The enemy’s general… has he discovered our true identities? At this rate……)

[MASAMUNE]: “…… What do you mean?”

In the tense air, Yukimura-san spoke clearly.

[YUKIMURA]: “I’m saying I will protect you two.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh……?”

[YUZUKI]: (Protect…… what exactly does he mean by that……?)

[MASAMUNE]: “…… There’s no obligation for you to do so.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Your wife saved a person of the Sanada territory. So, it would be natural for me to protect you two, right?”

[MASAMUNE]: “If you take us in, you might enter a war with Uesugi.”

[YUKIMURA]: “And that is precisely why. If you stay with me, Uesugi cannot reach you easily. But if you leave Sanada territory then you two will surely be killed.”

[YUKIMURA]: “I can’t let the person who saved my people die before my eyes.”

[YUZUKI]: (This person… seems to be saying this sincerely. Masamune-san, what will you do……?)

[MASAMUNE]: “I don’t intend to accept protection.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Why?”

[MASAMUNE]: “You might be detaining us here to sell us over to Uesugi.”

[YUKIMURA]: “I see. In other words, you can’t trust me is what you’re saying.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Aa. I can protect myself and this one alone…… Bye.”

[YUZUKI]: (As expected of Masamune-san…… he’s managed to pull us out of this place……)

[YUKIMURA]: “In that case, give me a little time. I’ll show you around this town.”

[MASAMUNE]: “…… Why?”

[YUKIMURA]: “A castle town is a mirror that reflects the character of its ruler. I think if you can see everyone in this town and its spirit, you’ll be able to trust me.”

[MASAMUNE]: “What’s with that senseless reason. Sorry, but–“

[YUKIMURA]: “As long as you’re in the Sanada territory, I will guarantee your safety. For you two, it should be worth staying longer here.”

[MASAMUNE]: “…………”

Masamsune-san showed that he was considering it a little. I whispered to Masamune-san, making sure Yukimura-san couldn’t hear.

[YUZUKI]: “What do we do, Masamune-san……”

[MASAMUNE]: “If we forcibly refuse here, it’d make him suspect us…… there’s no choice.”

Masamune-san sighed, as if giving up, and focused on Yukimura-san.

[MASAMUNE]: “…… Fine. You can show us around. However, if we can’t trust you even after seeing the town, then at that time you’ll let us leave.”

[YUKIMURA]: “And this is my favorite shop. The shopkeeper is very generous–“

[MASAMUNE]: “Hmph……”

[YUZUKI]: “…… H-Hold on, Masamune-san.”

I pulled Masamune-san’s arm closer to me and lowered my voice so that Yukimura-san couldn’t hear.

[YUZUKI]: “If you don’t let him guide us around quietly, wouldn’t he find that suspicious……?”

[MASAMUNE]: “That’s why I’m being quiet.”

[YUZUKI]: “No, well, you are quiet but…… wouldn’t it be better to be a little more civil? Look, Yukimura-san doesn’t seem to be a bad person……”

[MASAMUNE]: “No. I can’t trust anyone who helps people without gain.”

[YUZUKI]: “Is that how it works……?”

As I felt some complicated feelings at his words, Masamune-san snorted and left. When he did, Yukimura-san came beside me and whispered into my ear.

[YUKIMURA]: “…… Hey.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh…? What is it…?”

[YUKIMURA]: “Um…… would you convince him somehow? I really want to help you two.”

[YUZUKI]: “Uhhhm… that’s……”

[YUZUKI]: (Uuu…… he seems to be saying it seriously, and it makes me feel guilty for lying……)

When I kept silent, not knowing how best to answer, Yukimura-san seemed to guess something and distanced himself from me, shrugging his shoulders.

[YUKIMURA]: “…… Well, I guess it’s been difficult for you two up to now. It must be difficult to suddenly trust in another person.”

[YUKIMURA]: “But, at the very least, I want you to know about the goodness of Sanada territory.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Ah, let’s go look at that general store over there. It has a lot of accessories that’ll suit a cute girl like you.”

[YUZUKI]: “G-Girl……”

[YUKIMURA]: “Hm? What’s wrong?”

[YUZUKI]: “No, it’s nothing……”

[YUZUKI]: (Maybe it’s because I’m used to Masamune-san’s attitude? Somehow he’s being too kind and, conversely, it makes me uneasy……)

[MASAMUNE]: “…………”

…… At some point Masamune-san, who had come up beside me, looked at me with a sharp gaze.

[MASAMUNE]: “You seem to be enjoying yourself quite a bit.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh? No, that’s not……”

[MASAMUNE]: “If you like him then you can stay here. How about just having Sanada protect you?”

[YUZUKI]: “W-What are you saying…!”

[MASAMUNE]: “…… Hmph.”

[YUZUKI]: (Masamune-san seems a bit angry……? I wonder why……?)

[YUKIMURA]: “Now then… with this I think we’ve seen the castle town from start to end.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Well…… I will ask once again. Let me protect you two in Sanada’s territory.”

Yukimura-san faced us with a serious gaze. In contrast, Masamune-san’s response was quick.

[MASAMUNE]: “No matter how many times you ask, the answer is the same. I’ll be the one to protect myself and this one. I don’t plan on borrowing anyone’s help.”

[YUKIMURA]: “…… Why are you so stubborn? There’s no way you can protect her from Uesugi’s pursuers just by yourself.”

[MASAMUNE]: “That’s why I should accept you protecting her?”

[MASAMUNE]: “Keep your jokes to yourself. Protecting this girl is my responsibility. I won’t hand that over to anyone.”

[YUKIMURA]: “I’m not asking you to hand it over. But, if you truly cherish her, then you’re not in the place to say such a thing, right?”

[YUZUKI]: (Uh… umm… what should I do……)

[MASAMUNE]: “Anyway, it’s none of your business…… We’re going.”

Masamune-san ignored Yukimura-san’s words and pulled my arm forcefully.

When he did, my other arm was grabbed by Yukimura-san.

[YUZUKI]: (Uh……)

[YUKIMURA]: “I won’t let you two go. If you go, you’ll both definitely die.”

Masamune-san and Yukimura-san glared at each other while holding my arms.

[YUZUKI]: (W-What is with this situation……!?)

In the middle of the street, squeezed between two men and with my arms grabbed, I was attracting people’s eyes and my own started wandering helplessly.

…… And then I saw someone approaching us.

[SASUKE]: “Yukimuraaaaa! I’ve just come back!”

[YUZUKI]: (Huh…… if I’m not mistaken, that person fought with Shigezane-san and the others……)

[SASUKE]: “Hm? Yukimura, who’s that with you……?”

[SASUKE]: “…… wha, why are these guys here!?”

Sasuke-san pulled out his blades in a panic and pointed them at Masamune-san.

[MASAMUNE]: “Che……”

[YUKIMURA]: “Oi, Sasuke, what are you doing! Sheathe your weapons! You’ll scare the villagers!”

[SASUKE]: “This isn’t the time to say that! Yukimura, do you know who these guys are!?”

[SASUKE]: “That’s…… the Date Army’s general! Date Masamune!”

[YUKIMURA]: “Wha……!?”

(T/N: Honestly, this chapter just keeps delivering. Where to start the tsukkomis. Masamune’s plan would have worked… if Yukimura wasn’t such a good boy LOL. I can’t stop laughing at how it backfires with Yukimura being like “if you love her then you’d protect her no matter what!”. And that Masamune is such a suspicious guy and it’s rubbed onto the heroine too; or more like she’s not used to kindness and now finds it too weird LOL.)

      We’re way too paranoid for our own good :’)) Yukimura comes off with a genuineness that makes me believe he fully means it but that makes me worried about how trusting he is though sOBS. You’ve caught up with the latest chapters but it’s surprising how it goes from funny to just a downward spiral of clashing ideals, ahaha.

    That’s it, I FALL IN LOVE TO YOU YUKIMURA!!!!!! 💘
    Even though there’s funny parts, it’s so intense that I stop reading for a while to recover then back to reading. When Sasuke appear I was like “OH NOOO….. YOUR SWEET DRAMA ENDS…..”

      He’s really charming here isn’t he? |D;; Unfortunately, the story Masamune told is a complete lie and they’re actually being bothered so much by how persistently nice Yukimura is LOL. I’m glad I’m not the only one who found this chapter intense and it just gets worse as the chapters go on for the Date Army.

      I don’t know why but whenever I see Yukimura I keep thinking he’s a shiba inu LOL. But yes ;w; he’s so nice!! I can totally understand why MC would feel guilty about lying to him, especially when he’s being so genuine about protecting them from Uesugi.
