SNB Date ~ Chapter 8.4 ~

Chapter 8: The Light Points to a New Sight–

Binding an alliance, Masamune and the others obtained permission to move freely within Uesugi territory.

They then slipped out to a cave, pointed to by the light emitted from the sacred treasure, and what they found there was…?

Chapter 8.4

The next morning. I heard voices arguing about something at the entrance to the room when I woke up.

[UESUGI SOLDIER]: “Last night, you people were the ones who caused that commotion!”

[UESUGI SOLDIER]: “We have witnesses who saw you two slip out of your rooms late at night.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “That’s ’cause I wanted to go to the toilet. I looked everywhere for it and accidentally broke a vase. Hey, actually, why would soldiers come for such a small thing.”

.[KOJUUROU]: “And you do not even accept our apologies; we are continuously being suspected.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Masamune, please say something about this.”

After Kojuurou-san sighed with an exasperated look, he turned back to Masamune-san who was behind him watchfully waiting.

[MASAMUNE]: “… It’s true, these two destroyed your personal property on their way to the privy. However, that was not done intentionally.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Even though we apologized, you men are doubting us more than necessary, simply because we are people of another army.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Above all, you men have a previous offense. Yesterday, while saying that we are allied, Amakasu Kagemochi tried to kill us.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Following that, this poor treatment. What exactly do you intend with this?”

Masamune-san met eyes with Kenshin-san, who had been watching this series of exchanges behind the soldiers.

[MASAMUNE]: “Kenshin, do you really plan to tie an alliance with us?”

[UESUGI SOLDIER]: “Bastard, you DARE to insult Kenshin-sama–“

The moment the anger of the Uesugi soldiers was to explode, Kenshin-san chided them and stepped forward.

[KENSHIN]: “… I apologize for this rudeness. However, I have no reason to annul the promise of an alliance.”

[MASAMUNE]: “So, you will continue this current relationship.”

[MASAMUNE]: “If so, swear you will treat us with the utmost sincerity in the future. If you do, then I’ll forgive and forget yesterday’s actions.”

[KENSHIN]: “Yes. I shall certainly promise. We will not act discourteously to you, our allies.”

When Kenshin-san gave a firm nod, Masamune-san continued speaking as if he remembered something.

[MASAMUNE]: “I have not received a reply yet regarding the survey of Uesugi territory.”

[MASAMUNE]: “This is just in time. Let me hear your answer here and now, since I am not a patient person.”

And then Masamune-san looked at me, who had been watching the proceedings a short distance away.

[MASAMUNE]: “That girl is also “one of Date’s”. So, there should be no problem if she accompanies us.”

[KENSHIN]: “… I understand. I will permit your survey.”

[KENSHIN]: “However, we cannot rule out the possibility that the Takeda Army will strike again. Until you all return to Date territory, I shall also go together with you around my territory.”

[KENSHIN]: “… Thus, your wife with mysterious powers may also feel safe.”

Eyes with unreadable emotions turned towards me and, for an instant, my heart skipped a beat.

[YUZUKI]: (Is it possible they discovered our use of the sacred treasure yesterday…!?)

In contrast to me who was inwardly shaken, Masamune-san answered quietly without being perturbed at all.

[MASAMUNE]: “My thanks for your concern.”

After Kenshin-san left to prepare, I recalled the conversation just now.

[YUZUKI]: (Asking to be together with the wife with mysterious powers… Does Kenshin-san know everything…?)

[YUZUKI]: (… What do we do. If the power of my blood is known…)

Remembering that Kenshin-san again, I shuddered a little.

[MASAMUNE]: “… What’s wrong?”

[YUZUKI]: “… Ah, sorry, I’m worried about Kenshin-san’s words back there.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Wife with mysterious powers… you mean that?”

[YUZUKI]: “… I wonder if Kenshin-san noticed my power.”

[MASAMUNE]: “… The possibility of that is high.”

Masamune-san replied, as if slightly irritated.

[MASAMUNE]: “I don’t know about the other commanders, but I’m sure only Kenshin has seen through to how you aren’t just an ordinary person.”

[MASAMUNE]: “After all, the other party is Uesugi’s general.”

[YUZUKI]: “Oh no…”

[MASAMUNE]: “However, even if we can’t completely hide it, there’s still something we can do if he only suspects.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “But if this girl were to get taken by Uesugi then, at that point, we’d be at a stalemate, wouldn’t we?”

[MASAMUNE]: “Aa. In that case, and this situation, how are we to get over this while remaining on top?”

[MASAMUNE]: “–By quickly grabbing the clue to Himemiko before Uesugi starts to move.”

Saying that, Masamune-san smirked.

[MASAMUNE]: “We’ll use any means necessary to achieve our goals. In the first place, that’s how we do things, right?”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Right on!”

Unlike Shigezane-san, who was grinning, Kojuurou-san shrugged his shoulders with an expression of exasperation.

[KOJUUROU]: “I’m the one who has to make those plans come true though…”

      LOL I’m so glad you could hear the utter exasperation in his voice there. Poor Kojuurou, no one respects how much work he goes through to try and understand Masamune’s crazy plan. I just keep thinking back to that one chapter where the heroine was so impressed by their teamwork and was like “so this is the Date bond!!” only to realize that it’s Kojuurou putting in 120% of his mental energy LOL.

    I KNEW IT.
    You cannot fool Kenshin. *cackling*

    But it really is difficult to ascertain Kenshin’s thoughts, huh…

      I’m reaaaaally curious about their sense of smell because some routes mention it a lot and others don’t (I’m pretty sure there’s more than one writer but not sure if every army route has its own writer or what). Like Nobunaga says that when he first met the heroine; the smell of her and her blood stirred an ancient instinct in him. So now I’m like ??? does anyone else smell that she’s strange? It’d be a pretty huge giveaway!!

      This is just a long way to say I’m with you in not knowing what Kenshin is thinking about that makes this whole situation worrying for the Date group. Everyone has their own plans, haha.

      Kenshin is as unreadable as always >< it's kinda scary because as long as you know Kenshin is treating you like a friend, or something he needs to help, then he has no dirty tricks under his sleeve and he'll be upright and just in his actions. But if he already knows that Masamune is going to trick him… they do say Uesugi is merciless against their enemies. And since we don't know how Kenshin is viewing Date right now, it's really tense, haha.
