SNB Date ~ Chapter 7.3 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 7: One Should Persist with One’s Way–

The next clue that leads to Himemiko seems to be in the Uesugi territory.

Masamune advances his army towards the Uesugi territory without delay, but a battle has started between the Uesugi Army and Takeda Army in front of their eyes!?

Chapter 7.3

On a certain day, after several days had passed since we returned to the Date castle from Uesugi territory.

A letter from Kenshin-san arrived at the Date castle.

“We officially accept the alliance with the Date Army” was definitively written on that letter.

[MASAMUNE]: “It seems like the rumors were true.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh, what do you mean?”

[MASAMUNE]: “Uesugi is merciless towards their enemies, but they do not refuse requests for aid… that’s what I heard.”

[YUZUKI]: (I see… I didn’t know that.)

[KOJUUROU]: “I hope this isn’t the case but, Masamune, did you come up with that dangerous plan relying on just rumors!?”

[SHIGEZANE]: “What were you gonna do if we were rejected?”

[MASAMUNE]: “I’d think about it when the time came.”

When Masamune-san declared that, Kojuurou-san gave a large sigh.

[KOJUUROU]: “… Put yourself in the position of those who have to keep up with you.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Anyway, with this we can openly enter Uesugi territory. Let’s go at once; prepare yourselves.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Right. Then I shall prepare the horses…”

[YUZUKI]: (I-Is it okay for me to go too…?)

[MASAMUNE]: “Hey, what are you doing. You’re coming with us too.”

[YUZUKI]: “Eh…? Ah, okay! I’ll do my best not to be a burden.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Huh? What’re you saying.”

[MASAMUNE]: “If I thought you were a burden, I wouldn’t have asked you from the start.”

[KOJUUROU]: “That is correct. If you aren’t with us, we cannot reach Himemiko.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Besides, when you and Imari aren’t with us, it feels weird.”

[YUZUKI]: (It’s become natural for me to go with them… everyone thinks that way.)

Feeling like I wasn’t just a tool for them to meet Himemiko-sama, and that I personally was accepted among them, I smiled and thanked them.

There was some bustle as usual and then Masamune-san, Shigezane-san, Kojuurou-san, Imari-kun, and I rode on horses and headed towards Uesugi territory.

Along the way–

[KOJUUROU]: “Masamune, should we not stop for a moment soon? If we continue proceeding without drinking any water, it will be a strain on her.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “I support that. It’d be bad if she collapsed before using the sacred treasure.”

[YUZUKI]: “S-Sorry, everyone has to consider me…”

[MASAMUNE]: “Hn, you’re saying that now?”

Masamune-san huffed in amusement and tied his horse to a tree. Seeing that, Shigezane-san and Kojuurou-san did the same.

And then, when I was helped down from the horse, I suddenly heard something moving rapidly, like the sound of something flowing.

[YUZUKI]: (It’s from there. What is it…?)

I turned my eyes to the direction of the sound and unconsciously raised my voice.

[YUZUKI]: (What a pretty stream…! I just happen to feel thirsty too. I wonder if I can drink that water?)

I walked to the stream, curious.

The moment I was a step away, I felt a strange sensation at my feet.

[YUZUKI]: (Huh? Right now… did my foot get caught in something?)

Immediately afterwards, something sliced through the air and came flying in from behind me–

[YUZUKI]: “Ahhh…!”

[KOJUUROU]: “What happened!?”

Hearing my scream, Kojuurou-san and the others promptly came running.

[YUZUKI]: “Just now, something touched my thigh…”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Uwah, you’re bleeding! Are you okay?”

[KOJUUROU]: “It seems you may have been caught in a hunting trap. There might be poison applied on it.”

[YUZUKI]: “No, there’s no numbness, so I think it’s a normal injury. It’s nothing serious.”

[KOJUUROU]: “No, it might fester if we leave it alone. Let’s treat you immediately.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Pardon me.”

[YUZUKI]: “Eh? Wah!”

Kojuurou-san easily lifted me in a princess carry and walked towards the horses.

[KOJUUROU]: “It would hurt to walk on that leg, right? Please do not strain yourself, and leave this to me.”

[YUZUKI]: “K-Kojuurou-san, I’m sorry and thank you very much…”

[KOJUUROU]: “No, there is no need for thanks.”

Kojuurou-san gave a faint smile but as soon as his eyes turned to the ground his face quickly stiffened.

[YUZUKI]: “Kojuurou-san…?”

I followed Kojuurou-san’s line of sight and lost my words.

[YUZUKI]: “That’s…!”

[KOJUUROU]: “A type of throwing star. It appears that this was not a hunting trap but an artifical trap.”

[MASAMUNE]: “This place is still Date’s territory. I don’t remember ordering these to be set.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Then who could have…”

[KOJUUROU]: “… No, now isn’t the time to talk about that. Treatment comes first.”

[MASAMUNE]: “In that case, there’s a village ahead after we come out of the mountains. Let’s go there.”

[YUZUKI]: “I’m sorry. We have to make a stop because of me.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Don’t worry ’bout it! C’mon, let’s go.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Would you please show me your wound?”

[YUZUKI]: “Umm… ah…”

[KOJUUROU]: “What is the matter? If you do not show me your wound, I cannot treat it.”

[YUZUKI]: “R-Right. Sorry…”

I hesitated a little, feeling like it was improper to roll up my clothes and show my leg to a man, but now wasn’t the time to worry about that.

[KOJUUROU]: “… Excuse me.”

Kojuurou-san’s hand touched my thigh. I don’t know whether it was due to my nervousness or pain from the wound, but I concentrated on the sensation of where I was touched and couldn’t relax.

[KOJUUROU]: “… There, it is done.”

[YUZUKI]: “Thank you very much. That helped.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Now then, let’s head to the Uesugi territory without delay.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Yah! Let’s slam in!”

    Yuzuki shouldn’t be too worried, Kojuurou is simply being a gentlemen or a mom in this case because of the situation. There may be a number of other characters that may use this situation as an opportunity to tease, but I can’t think of any right now.

      Haha, too true! I’d argue that Kojuu is a sleeping beast but he’s definitely too dutiful to tease or do anything in this kind of situation. Other situations though… maybe >:D I can definitely see Kagemochi taking this opportunity and maybe Masanobu; basically all the guys who are used to women– //bricked.

    “Yah! Let’s slam in!” <— I choked and had to double check who's saying this haha. After all that touchy feely of not-so-mom mom hot guy and some bare thigh, and my mind just went into the gutter for a few secs. Lmao someone cleanse me. Thanks for the chapter! The fan service was tasty lol

      LMAO WHAT ARE YOU THINKING!! Shigezane said something really odd and slang-y there even in Japanese. It was like “let’s zoom in/fly in/leap in” kinda thing so I just took liberties with it. But LOL I can see why it could be misunderstood with what was going on just a few minutes before.

      “Not-so-mom mom hot guy” FGHJFKGJHG the problem with liking Kojuu LOL. You don’t know whether you want him to be your mom or your boyfriend– //bricked. Senbura needs to give us more fanservice ლ(´ڡ`ლ) I’m always hungry for it.

    I imagine here is like she step on a string and those blades came in. Throwing star…. Like shuriken?
    OMG…..!!! A FANSERVICE!!! 😍😆💖

      Exactly like shuriken! That’s the word they used actually, haha, but I was like “nah we can call them throwing stars” |D;; was thinking that since it could be easily translated, I might as well. I think that’s pretty much what happened too, she tripped a string and something came flying out at her.

      (Psst, was worth it if it lets you get princess-carried by Kojuu– //bricked).

    Wow, you’re really on a roll. XD

    I like this part so much because… Kojuurou??? (//∇//)

    I need more Kojuurou in my life~ ★⌒ヽ(´ ❥ `)
    It doesn’t help that he has Satou-san’s voice…

      Ilinox responded:

      Slamming back into translations at my usual speed!!! Hahaha.

      Fufu, this Kojuurou scene is reaaaally nice isn’t it~ I’m kinda surprised Masamune or Shigezane didn’t say anything about Kojuurou just touching her so much like that LOL but I guess like Yuzuki was thinking, now isn’t the time to get embarrassed or think about stuff like that since it could have been serious. Everyone could always use more Kojuu in their life n_n.

      WE DO NOT SPEAK OF SATOU’S VOICE!! HE’S HAUNTING ME EVERYWHERE I GO!! I listen to tons of drama CDs on the side and let’s just say… he’s gotten such good roles these past few months. Please, someone stop him.

        Maybe Masamune and Shigezane thought that, “oh, it’s mom in action”, so they didn’t think much of it..
        But if only they know… if only they know…

        Satou-san really suits “mom guy” type of chara so much, when I found out he voiced Kojuurou, I just knew Koju was going to be “very dangerous”. XD
        Contrary to your wish, I wish that someone keeps him going. :P
        Soothing voice like Satou-san’s is not that common, so I would like to hear more of him. (´ ∀ ` *)

        You know what they say about the quiet ones… (。•̀ᴗ-)✧.

        LOL oh yeah I’m definitely not complaining about all the roles he gets (though my wallet is). He really does suit the “mom guy” roles or the onii-chan ones because of his voice |D but I’m glad he still gets some versatility! Though in the end they’re never able to erase that softness that’s always in Satou’s voice. I think the latest I heard was a playboy onii-chan osananajimi chara which was an interesting mix of tropes and oh man I could tell he had so much fun with that role cause he got to stretch his voice in all sorts of scenes, but it still had that vibe that was pure Satou LOL.
