Chapter 9: Complicated Expectations

A mysterious army that suddenly appeared; however, with the united front of both armies, they were succesfully repelled.

A banquet was held that night, but everyone seems to have their own feelings and thoughts…

Chapter 9.1

That day, when the alliance with the Toyotomi Army had been decided– a banquet was held in the castle at the suggestion of Hideyoshi-san, who loved festivals.

[HIDEYOSHI]: “C’mon, c’mon, let’s all get excited today!”

Beside Hideyoshi-san, who was leading everyone, Nobunaga-san quietly drank sake.

[YUZUKI]: (It feels kind of strange seeing the two of them beside each other like this…)

As if the explosive atmosphere in the morning had been a lie, right now there was a peaceful air drifting between both armies.

[YUZUKI]: (The Toyotomi Army seemed a little scary, or gave off the impression of having a set of strange people, but they might be surprisingly easy to get along with like this…)

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Hey, you have some really strange clothes. Where’d you come from?”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh? Uh, I…”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “What kind of connection do you have with Himemiko? I’ll show you a sacred treasure, so won’t you come to my room?”

[YUZUKI]: “U-Umm…”

When I was troubled at how to answer Hideyoshi-san who talked on and on, Nobunaga-san suddenly pulled me towards himself.

[YUZUKI]: “… Nobunaga-san…?”

My heart pounded when I was brought into his chest, close enough to feel his breaths.

Nobunaga-san’s expression, when he glared at Hideyoshi, seemed slightly more alluring than usual, maybe due to the sake.

[NOBUNAGA]: “You’re a light-fingered monkey as usual…”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Now, now, now, that was a joke, since I know it’ll be scary later if I willfully take something that belongs to you, Nobunaga-sama.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “… Hn.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “But, of course, it’s a different story if you say you want to come over here. If you ever feel like it, come to the Toyotomi Army.”

[YUZUKI]: “N-No, thank you…”

I was relieved when I managed to answer somehow and Nobunaga-san released me.

[YUZUKI]: (If I’m in this room together with the two of them any longer I don’t think I can calm down…)

I looked around as to whether I could leave this place well or not, but…

[YUZUKI]: (Mmm… everyone’s deep in conversation and it’d be hard to interrupt…)

In this situation where there was no escape, I started to feel suffocated, but then Mitsuhide-san called to me.

[MITSUHIDE]: “Your complexion is not very well. Are you a little tired?”

[YUZUKI]: “… Ah, yes. I’m sorry… I think the hot air in this banquet is getting to me a bit…”

[MITSUHIDE]: “In that case, how about breathing some fresh air?”

[YUZUKI]: “Y-You’re right. Then, please excuse me…”

Accepting Mitsuhide-san’s timely help, I tried to leave the room but–

[NOBUNAGA]: “Oi, you aren’t intending to walk alone in Toyotomi’s castle, are you?”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh?”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Ranmaru, accompany her.”

[RANMARU]: “… ! Yes, my lord!”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah… sorry. I made you accompany me, Ranmaru-kun…”

[RANMARU]: “No, please do not be concerned. I was also wanting to rest a little…”

Saying that, Ranmaru-kun’s expression was somewhat dark and gloomy.

Like that, Ranmaru-kun pulled me by the hand and left the room while looking down.

[YUZUKI]: “Ranmaru-kun, is something wrong?”

[RANMARU]: “Wrong… what do you mean?”

[YUZUKI]: “… Did something bad happen?”

[RANMARU]: “…… Haa. Am I that easy to understand?”

[YUZUKI]: “No, but your expression seemed somewhat dark, Ranmaru-kun… is it possible that you wanted to leave that place?”

[RANMARU]: “… I can’t forgive the Toyotomi Army, who betrayed Nobunaga-sama once, to talk to him and us as if nothing had happened.”

[RANMARU]: “Of course, this is an alliance that Nobunaga-sama decided upon and I have no complaints about that itself.”

[RANMARU]: “But to make a clean divide and talk happily like everyone else is doing is…”

Ranmaru-kun fell silent on that note.

As I was troubled over what words to say to Ranmaru-kun who was seriously bothered–

[RANMARU]: “!!”

Abruptly, a sliding screen nearby was opened from the inside with great force.

Having had a conversation we didn’t really want to be heard, we hid ourselves in the corner of a hallway.

[KATSUIE]: “Fuah. It’s refreshing when you go outside…”

[TOSHIIE]: “Yeah. Anyway, it’s been a long time since we had a banquet with all these faces. Everyone seems to have gotten pretty heated.”

[YUZUKI]: (It’s Katsuie-san and Toshiie-san…)

    I also LMAO when I read about Hideyoshi’s “sacred treasure”! 🤣
    I bet he’s saying that intentionally, but too bad Yuzuki did not get the innuendo. :P

    Mitsuhide is such an angel though. (*´∀`*)
    Only he can notice Yuzuki’s discomfort.
    Nobunaga and Hideyoshi are too fixated on each other. Heh.

      HONESTLY THAT BOY!! I actually paused and was like “wait, did Toyotomi ever reveal they had another sacred treasure?” but then I realized how naughty that sounded and now I can’t stop giggling at how lame he is. I love this monkey man.

      Mitsuhiiiiiideeeee. I think the spotlight’s moved off of him for the past 3 chapters so it’s so nice to see him do these tiny considerate actions ;3;/ (I feel like a terrible person for loving this trope of two people fighting over someone but gimme more of this Nobunaga vs Hideyoshi thing LOL).

        I guess it says something about me that once I read Hideyoshi’s lines, I know right away he’s not really talking about sacred treasures… ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) If I am Yuzuki, I’ll definitely say, “Please tell me more about this ‘sacred treasure’ *winks*” (Nobu’s not gonna be pleased though :P)

        I want more Mitsuhide?? But he is the kind of guy who blends into the background, so… (TT__TT)
        Nobunaga vs Hideyoshi is indeed the most interesting pair since there are a lot of hidden meanings, etc.
        Masamune vs Yukimura is second for me, because they are kinda like boke tsukkomi routine. Haha~

    Ah, Hideyoshi being his usual flirtatious self and I’m curious about his and Yuzuki’s interactions in the future now that they are allied.

    That was a rather forceful way of claiming possession on Nobunaga’s part, in front of everyone too. He seems to only let up when Yuzuki answers favorably in that situation. Nobunaga reminds me a cat a little too much, normally aloof and coming to give affection when he’s in the mood.

    These two have no chill, no wonder she wants to leave to get some breathing room lol.

      Me too 👀👀 sparks were already flying in their respective Ch7 and now we get to see the leaders from both armies interacting personally with the heroine.

      I love how no one even bats an eye at what is going on at the head of the table (or room?). But then again I think the rumors in Shinga or, at least in Toyotomi, is that she’s Nobunaga’s woman since he invited her to stay in his personal rooms for a night so ooh la la. Haha, I think a cat analogy fits Nobunaga perfectly. He has the poise, pride, confidence, and independence of one too |D He also makes everything he does look like he planned it and he absolutely hates the rain LOL.

      Oh man, too true. If she remains there she might end up being the cause of them breaking the alliance they just formed LOL.

    Ahhhh, Katsuie and Toshiie! They are very similar to each other. Well, I actually realize that the members of the Nobunaga and Toyotomi army look a bit like each other: Katsuie with Toshiie, Mitsuhide with Mitsunari, Ranmaru with Hanbe and Nagahide with Kanbe … I don’t know, I do find differences between them .
    It gives me that in the past everyone got along very well with each other. I would like to see them fight together, that would be great ^^

      I mean, similarities xD

        They are indeed! I’m pretty sure the armies (exception being Date since they only have 3 members) are similar in structure |D;; they all have that bulky big dude who is generally more brawn than brains. Uesugi has Kageie, Takeda has Nobuharu, and Mouri has Motoharu.

        I also agree that for all the similarities there are differences too :D it’s what I always say to people who are like “well otome games are all the same! you have all the same archetypes” and well that’s true but it’s all in the details and Senbura shows just how unique the characters can be despite having similar physical settings. I love it.

        Ehehe, they did fight together a bit in Chapter 7 already |D
