Chapter 4: The Wise Delight in Water

In order to investigate the location of Himemiko, she started to decipher old books in the archives together with Kagemochi.

There she learned certain facts about the “Gekka Tribe” though…

Chapter 4.3

The next day.

[YUZUKI]: (Since Kagemochi-san taught me the letters of “Shinga”…)

[YUZUKI]: (I’m going to try deciphering those old books today!)

I thought that while carrying the texts when, abruptly, a person appeared energetically in front of me.

[YUZUKI]: “Wah…! K-Kageie-san…?”

[KAGEIE]: “Ou, you’re carrying those? Great, leave them to me!”

For some reason, Kageie-san eagerly picked up the majority of the old books.

[YUZUKI]: “Uh, um, okay… thank you.”

[KAGEIE]: “Alright. I’ll keep carrying them! Next–“

[YUZUKI]: “Um… Kageie-san, I won’t be able to read this much all at once… this is more than enough for now.”

Feeling that if I left him alone my room would be forcefully buried by the old books from the archives, I hurriedly stopped Kageie-san.

[KAGEIE]: “I-I see…”

[KAGEIE]: “Then, is there anything else I can help with? Don’t hesitate and just say it. Come on!”

[YUZUKI]: “Uh… then how about deciphering these together with me?”

[KAGEIE]: “Ou! Leave it to me!”

[KAGEIE]: “Mm, mumumu…”

[YUZUKI]: “Kageie-san? Uhm…”

[KAGEIE]: “I-It’s not what you think! It’s definitely not because I can’t read these letters!”

[KAGEIE]: “But… how do I say this… the words are old and said in a roundabout way, so it’s complicated…”

[YUZUKI]: “In that case, you don’t need to force yourself to help–“

However, without even listening to the end of my words, Kageie-san shook his head roughly.

[KAGEIE]: “I can’t do that! I’ll definitely be of use!”

The moment Kageie-san clenched his fist and raised it, we heard a voice from beyond the sliding screen.

[VASSAL]: “Excuse me. There is a matter I would like to inquire about. Have you seen Kageie-sama?”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah, if it’s Kageie-san then he’s right here–“

When I opened the sliding screen to my room, the vassal said his thanks and then faced Kageie-san and lowered his head.

[VASSAL]: “Kageie-sama. Actually, yakuma were witnessed at a nearby town and the villagers have come to consult…”

[KAGEIE]: “I’m busy right now so go ask someone else!”

[VASSAL]: “Eh, but…”

Kageie-san said this, irrespective of the vassal being troubled, and glued himself to the desk.

[YUZUKI]: (I would think it’s be best to prioritize the discussion with the villagers over deciphering, no…?)

Thinking that, I told Kageie-san this, as if to pacify him.

[YUZUKI]: “Kageie-san, I can do the deciphering. It’ll also be practice for memorizing the letters.”

[YUZUKI]: “So, please let them consult you, Kageie-san.”

[KAGEIE]: “Mrmm, I-I see… Okay. Then I’ll come by and help later!”

[YUZUKI]: (I’m glad that he carried those old books and that he helped decipher, but…)

[YUZUKI]: (What’s with the current Kageie-san…?)

And then after a while passed like that.

I heard the report that Kagekatsu-kun, Kanetsugu-san, and the others who had went on an expedition had returned and so I rushed over to where the two of them were.

[KAGEKATSU]: “… I’m home.”

[YUZUKI]: “Welcome home! Kagekatsu-kun, Kanetsugu-san! I’m glad you’re all safe.”

[KANETSUGU]: “As if we’d come back wounded. More importantly, how’s it been. Did anything change while we were gone?”

[YUZUKI]: “Nothing in particular, but Kageie-san is a little…”

When I spoke about Kageie-san’s actions lately, Kagekatsu-kun tilted his head while Kanetsugu-san dismissed it with an uninterested “Hnm”.

[KANETSUGU]: “So what, if he says he wants to help, then why don’t you just rely on him?”

[YUZUKI]: “That’s true but it was so sudden that I was surprised…”

[KAGEKATSU]: “… Then you should ask Kagemochi-san… I think.”

[YUZUKI]: “Kagemochi-san?”

[KAGEKATSU]: “… Mm.”

[KAGEKATSU]: “Kagemochi-san… watches everyone… so he might… know something.”

[YUZUKI]: “I see… Okay, got it. I’ll try asking.”

[YUZUKI]: (I wonder where Kagemochi-san is. His own room… maybe?)

When I arrived in front of Kagemochi-san’s room I heard someone speaking from inside.

[YUZUKI]: (It’s Kagemochi-san and… Kageie-san?)

[KAGEIE]: “Hey, Kagemochi! Please tell me! What do you think I should do to make that person happy!?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “What’s the matter all of a sudden…”

[KAGEIE]: “Ah, umm… y-you see, it’s like this…”

[KAGEIE]: “I doubted that girl because she was unfamiliar… and all I did was hateful things.”

[KAGEIE]: “Of course, now I think she’s needed person for Uesugi. But–“

[KAGEIE]: “From the standpoint of being harsh at the start, I can’t really figure out how to connect with her…”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “I see… And so, you want to please her, is what you’re saying.”

[KAGEIE]: “Mhm. But I have no clue on anything like ways to please women…”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “I see. Then I will think of something.”

[KAGEIE]: “Ohh, really? Thank you! I’m counting on you, Kagemochi!”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “However, until I think of something, you must not forcibly approach her.”

[KAGEIE]: “Hm? Why?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “You are tall and large and, how do I put this, your appearance is… uninhibited.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “If you suddenly approach her you may just frighten her.”

[KAGEIE]: “I-Is that so!? I didn’t realize…”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “That being the case, please take care from now on.”

[KAGEIE]: “Ah, right, okay. Sorry for this while you’re busy. I’ll take my leave.”

[YUZUKI]: (Ah, Kageie-san is coming out…!)

Although I didn’t do it on purpose, I felt awkward in having it known that I had eavesdropped.

Thinking that, I used the corner, and hid my body promptly.

[KAGEIE]: “To think I had frightened her… I did something awful…”

[YUZUKI]: (Alright, now’s my chance…!)

After I confirmed that Kageie-san was somewhat far away, I called out to Kagemochi-san who was in his room.

[YUZUKI]: “Kagemochi-san, it’s Yuzuki. Do you have some time right now?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Yes, please come in.”

[YUZUKI]: “Excuse me.”

[KAGEIE]: “… Hm? I came back because I forgot to tell Kagemochi something, but right now…”

[KAGEIE]: “What kind of business does she have with Kagemochi? I’m curious but… I was told not to approach her… Is it best not to thoughtlessly come close to her…”

When I talked about the strangeness in Kageie-san, Kagemochi-san listened to me while nodding his head.

[KAGEMOCHI]: “I see, that is strange, isn’t it… haha.”

[YUZUKI]: “Um… why are you laughing?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “No, it’s nothi–“

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Ah, I apologize. Please do not move for the moment.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh?”

Undergoing a sudden change, Kagemochi-san had a serious expression as he stretched out a hand to my head.

[KAGEMOCHI]: “There we go.”

[YUZUKI]: “Eh…?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Ah, there was something like dust on your hair.”

[YUZUKI]: “Oh… I see. Thank you…”

In contrast to Kagemochi-san who smiled and said you’re welcome, I was full of embarrassment.

When that happened, Kagemochi-san showed a smile that was more mirthful than ever before–

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Perhaps it would have been better to offer a pet on the head?”

[YUZUKI]: “! P-Please don’t tease me…!”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Ahaha, I was joking.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “However, lately it seems you have come to show a variety of expressions.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Is this because you have grown accustomed to Uesugi, I wonder? In any case, that is a joyful thing.”

[YUZUKI]: (Uu… in the end I feel like I just got teased and missed my chance to ask about Kageie-san…)

[KAGEIE]: “In the end I got curious and peeked through the crack of the sliding screen, but those two… so it was something like that!”

[KAGEIE]: “Kagemochi telling me not to approach her too much is because… I see, it’s because he’s given his heart to her!”

[KAGEIE]: “And even more, just from the sound of her voice, she also has feelings for Kagemochi! Mhm, there’s no doubt!”

[KAGEIE]: “If that’s the case– I’ll pitch in and help!”

    Aiyahhh…I’m in turmoil lol. Kagemochi, why must you be like this? There prolly was no dust. It was all calculated for his amusement and curiousity, but ahhh ;; < ;; ))) I think I'm just inherently weak for this dude and his antics? On another note…Kageie!! You're reading too much into it haha. What a misunderstanding that I can't help but wheeze. Gosh dang, tears are in my eyes x'DD. Thanks for this chapter lmao~

      THEY NEVER EXPLICITLY ADMIT THAT (OR DENY IT) BUT I AM 1000000% SURE KAGEMOCHI KNEW KAGEIE WAS THERE!! This kind of smooth wolf would have never let this opportunity to have fun with both of them slip by like that. I love this misunderstanding and I just want to be like “Kageie YOU DUMB OAF” with full on affection of course.

      But don’t worry, I’m with you in this boat that is gonna go over a waterfall with how weak we are to black belly antics :’D.

      Ahaha, it didn’t feel that way with the Kagekatsu and Kanetsugu chapters earlier? |D Then again Kagemochi is definitely the most aggressive of the bunch (and probably most in tune with his feelings). I’m in total agreement about being teased by Kagemochi, heehee.

    Oh, I want to ask you something! As for the protagonist, do you like her? In my case I have contradictory thoughts. Sometimes I like her very well and I see that she does useful things, but on the other hand there are times when she becomes so clumsy and problematic that she makes me angry. In general I think Yuzuki isn’t so bad, but could be better. The truth is that is why I don’t enjoy the chapters so much, but that’s just my opinion ^^ (only sometimes).

      I do! I like how the heroine in each route has her own flavor due to her interactions with them and them influencing her. Like you can clearly see she’s more clever and low-key in Oda’s because Nobunaga handles like… everything LOL. Meanwhile in Toyotomi and Date’s she’s had more action and more reckless things (also thinking just as sneakily as Masamune).

      In general I don’t really have problems with more quieter / emotional support heroines rather than ones that physically fight or are vicious. I think Uesugi’s heroine has a really strong sense of a responsibility which is what leads her to do reckless things at times (I don’t think anyone here thought it was a good idea to run out of the Uesugi castle while yakuma were around and stuff) but because it comes from a really admirable place, I just kinda take it in stride. Hmm, I guess I don’t really view these things as what kind of ways the heroine can contribute to them but more like how the heroine interacts and conveys her ideals / sense of self to the others and how that influences them and, in return, how they influence her and how she accepts their way of life, etc etc. And Uesugi’s route has quite a bit of these scenes which is why I like this route so much.

      Fair enough if you don’t like these chapters as much though |D;; you’re free to enjoy whatever you want!

    “Kagemochi-san… watches everyone… so he might… know something.”
    The security cameras, they are not necessary XD for that is Kagemochi.
    I remembered the gossiping grandmothers.
    Kageie so silly, innocent and bad dealing with women XD It gives so much tenderness. That misunderstanding is going to lead to something funny.

      Ilinox responded:

      LOL Kind of creepy but also just shows how, despite his kind facade, Kagemochi really is the ruthless shadow underneath Uesugi’s justice and righteousness :’D.

      I love the upcoming chapter too because of how silly Kageie is.

    Oh…WHAT?!?!?! Kageie, you absolute dork! I don’t remember this chapter at all…I must’ve just read through it very quickly and didn’t decipher the text properly. What a hilarious cliffhanger…

      Ilinox responded:
      March 23, 2018 at 20:52

      Haha, it probably got buried under all the upcoming angst that happens in this route because, while I remember this as being of my favorite parts in Uesugi cause it’s just so funny, if you were to tell me to give you my lasting impressions from Uesugi I just start crying over Kenshin.

    Ohh no…….. Or should I say Ohh yes……… It’s a huge misunderstanding and I LOVING IT SO MUCH TOO! 💞
    In this chapter Kageie become a lovable dorky cupid *giggling* 💞

      Ilinox responded:
      March 23, 2018 at 20:51

      This misunderstanding never fails to make me laugh. It’s just so silly and there Kagemochi is not bothering to make things any clearer by doing things like teasing the girl until she turns red, ahhhHHH!!

    I and Kagemochi thinking: “THIS IS GONNA BE FUN.” XD

    I bet Kagemochi knows that Kageie is outside looking in, which is why he acts like that. LMAO
    What I’m not sure about it whether he does that to tease these poor souls or he actually thinks to keep Kageie away from his prey.
    But Kageie thoooooough. This guy is too pure. Even worse than Kagekatsu??

    [KAGEMOCHI]: “I see… And so, you want to please her, is what you’re saying.”
    Goodness Kagemochi, why do you say it like that….(*/∇\*)

      Ilinox responded:
      March 23, 2018 at 20:51

      The next chapter is SO hilarious it’s one of my favorites in Uesugi because of this silly misunderstanding and Kageie just being SUCH a big dork.

      FGHJKFJGH I can totally seeing Kagemochi doing both at the same time :’D although I’m dying inwardly at him asking if the heroine would have rather liked a pet on the head. PLEASE. I’M SO WEAK TO HEAD PATS YELLS!!

      I feel like Kagekatsu, though oddly quiet, isn’t shy at all about his feelings? Like he knows exactly what he’s feeling he just has troubles expressing it because of his position and image as the heir. But when he wants affection he’s really clear about wanting it and stuff |D I mean his blunt remarks to Kanetsugu are pretty amazing. Meanwhile Kageie is like “GIRLS?!? HOW GIRLS!?”

        yukihime03 said:
        March 24, 2018 at 01:06

        Oh dear, now I really want to read the next chapter!!

        But then again, my memory of being patted is that the guys doing it were doing it condescendingly (I’m short and they’re tall) and I can see Kagemochi doing it like that too. Hah.

        I guess that’s why Kagekatsu and Kanetsugu make such interesting pair. At first look, you will think that Kagekatsu is the shy guy and Kanetsugu is the sly guy, but nope, not at all. They’re basically the honest – not honest pair. XD
