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 4.4

[KAGEIE]: “Mhm! There’s absolutely no doubt! Kagemochi and her–“

[KAGEIE]: “Like each other!”

[KAGEIE]: “If that’s the case then I, Kageie, will pitch in to help them get together!”

.[KAGEIE]: “First, I’m going to sound out things from Kagemochi’s end.”

[KAGEIE]: “Kagemochi, has there been anyone you’re interested in lately?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Hm, well I am interested in Takeda’s movements.”

[KAGEIE]: “Takeda? No, what I want to ask is, uh…”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Ah, we need to be cautious of Date’s movements as well, don’t we. They may come again to catch us unguarded–“

[KAGEIE]: “I’m saying! That’s not what I meant!”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Eh?… What has angered you? I do not fully understand what you wish to say.”

[KAGEIE]: “I’m talking about girls!”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “… Excuse me?”

[KAGEIE]: “Don’t you… have a girl you’re i-interested in? You do, right?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “… What are you talking about?”

[KAGEIE]: “I’m saying, you and her…! Ack, no! This can’t be said from me… mm, how should I say it…”

[KAGEIE]: “OH, I’ve got a good idea! Don’t you have someone you want to court?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Uh… I have not thought much about that at this point.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “There are many battles and I am too busy for lov–“

[KAGEIE]: “WHAT!? That’s a problem!”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Eh? Why?”

[KAGEIE]: “Even if you ask why, uh…”

[KAGEIE]: “It can’t be that he’s not even self-conscious of it. I might have to use a little force here…”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Kageie? What have you been talking about…”

[KAGEIE]: “Mmhggh…”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “… He left.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “In the end, what did Kageie want to talk about?”

[YUZUKI]: (Hrmm, maybe I got too greedy and carried a little too much?)

I was happy that I could read “Shina” letters to a certain degree, and so I thought to try and read more books–

When I was carrying a large amount of books from the archives to my own room, I saw Kageie-san come over from the other side.

[KAGEIE]: “Ou, you’re reading books again! But it must be hard to carry that much on your own. Alright, give those to me.”

[YUZUKI]: “Kageie-san! Thank you as always.”

[KAGEIE]: “This is nothing, don’t worry about it!”

[YUZUKI]: (Kageie-san has been really kind lately… I might be a bit happy about that…)

It was at that moment as I thought this and received Kageie-san’s help in carrying the books.

Kageie-san suddenly stopped and, when I looked up at him curiously, Kageie-san had furrowed his brows deeply.

[KAGEIE]: “T-That’s Kagemochi…!”

[YUZUKI]: “Is that a maid who is with him? They seem to be talking about something…”

[KAGEIE]: “Kagemochi… he’s so unlucky, being in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

[YUZUKI]: “Kageie-san?”

I didn’t know what Kageie-san was talking about and so I tilted my head.

When I did, Kageie-san hurriedly faced me.

[KAGEIE]: “Listen, that’s not what it looks like–“

[YUZUKI]: “… Huh?”

[KAGEIE]: “Kagemochi and you… uh… Urgh, how should I explain this…!?”

[YUZUKI]: “Um, please calm down, Kageie-san!”

[KAGEIE]: “There’s n-n-n-no problem! I’m more than calm enough!”

[YUZUKI]: (He doesn’t look like that though…)

[KAGEIE]: “A-Anyway! As far as I know, Kagemochi doesn’t have a woman who’s special to him! Don’t worry!”

[YUZUKI]: “I-I see.”

[YUZUKI]: (Kageie-san… what exactly is he being so frantic over?)

[KAGEIE]: “I tried a lot of things but none of them went well…”

[KAGEIE]: “What can I do to deepen the relationship between Kagemochi and her… Grah, I don’t have any ideas.”

[KAGEIE]: “And I can’t rely on Kagemochi this time, so what should I do–“

[KANETSUGU]: “Oh, Kageie-san? That’s a serious look there, what’s wrong? You’re usual scary face is even more scary now.”

[KAGEKATSU]: “Are you… troubled by something?”

[KAGEIE]: “Kagekatsu-sama and Kanetsugu…!”

[KAGEIE]: “AH, that’s right! I should ask for the opinions of the people close to her!”

[KAGEKATSU]: “Kageie-san…?”

[KAGEIE]: “Ahem! Actually, there’s something I want to ask you two!”

[KAGEIE]: “How do you bring a man and woman together!?”

[KANETSUGU]: “… Huh?”

[KAGEKATSU]: “A man and… a woman?”

[KAGEIE]: “That’s right! Please tell me!”

[KANETSUGU]: “I don’t know what to say when you ask me that suddenly… But, well, the common thing to do is to go out somewhere together or something, right?”

[KAGEKATSU]: “Also, giving a gift… maybe?”

[KAGEIE]: “OH! I see! So there’s that way! Thank you, Kagekatsu-sama, Kanetsugu!”

[KAGEIE]: “If that’s decided then I should put it in action immediately!”

[KANETSUGU]: “… Was that really okay. We didn’t say anything but obvious things though.”

[KAGEKATSU]: “Mm… yeah. What is Kageie-san going to do…?”

[KAGEIE]: “… In other words, I have to make Kagemochi and her go out to the castle town… and then–“

[KAGEIE]: “A gift needs to be given…! Gift… hmm… a hairpin should be good. Great!”

[KAGEIE]: “Kagemochi! Let’s go shopping!”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Shopping? Alright, though I do not know why you bothered to invite me. What are you going to buy?”

[KAGEIE]: “A hairpin!”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “A hairpin? Are you gifting it to someone?”

[KAGEIE]: “You’re gifting it!”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “… Excuse me?”

[KAGEIE]: “… Ah, no, anyway! Let’s meet in the castle town! Okay!?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Uhm… if the two of us are going then I do not think we need to arrange a meeting place?”

[KAGEIE]: “Shush, if I said we’re going to meet then we’re going to meet! Be sure to come, okay!”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “……”

[KAGEIE]: “Oh, here you are! Kagemochi said he wants you to come to the castle town!”

Kageie-san said that with excitement after he entered the room without any greetings as usual.

[YUZUKI]: “The castle town…? But when I met Kagemochi-san just now he didn’t say an–“

[KAGEIE]: “Anyway, go to the town!”

[YUZUKI]: (…?)

I was stopped by Kageie-san’s way of talking. It was like I could hear in his voice that “No matter what, I have to have her go to the castle town”.

[YUZUKI]: “Why?”

[KAGEIE]: “Huh? Ahh, that is, you see…”

Kageie-san’s eyes swam around for a while before he seemed to come up with something and a bright expression appeared.

[KAGEIE]: “Because it’s an important business related to Uesugi! If you understand now then go to the town! Right now!”

[YUZUKI]: “…? Okay, I understand.”

That didn’t sound quite right to me, but it’d be a problem if Kageie-san was telling the truth, so I nodded deeply.

[KAGEIE]: “Alright, from here I can watch the two of them without being seen.”

[KAGEIE]: “Kagemochi doesn’t seem to want to be in love, so… if their relationship isn’t moving then I’ll create an opportunity…”

[KAGEIE]: “… Hm? Wait? Even if I say I’ll create a romantic opportunity, what exactly should I–“

[YUZUKI]: “Oh, Kageie-san? Why are you hiding?”

[KAGEIE]: “Uwaah!? N-No, it’s not like I’m hiding or anything!”

[KAGEIE]: “More importantly, where’s Kagemochi! Shouldn’t you be meeting with him!?”

I started talking about what just happened as Kageie-san looked around uneasily.

[YUZUKI]: “I met Kagemochi-san after you told me to go to the town, but…”

[YUZUKI]: “Kagemochi-san said it was inconvenient for him and that you were going instead…”

[KAGEIE]: “WHAT!? I didn’t hear about that!?”

[YUZUKI]: “Even if you ask me…”

Kageie-san didn’t know how to reply and was flustered but, eventually, he gave a large sigh.

[KAGEIE]: “… There’s no point if Kagemochi didn’t come. I’ll have to set another opportunity, I guess. Let’s go home.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh, we can’t…! Because this is important business related to Uesugi, right?”

[KAGEIE]: “Nah, that was just an excuse to let you and Kagemochi have a da– Ah, that’s not it!”

[KAGEIE]: “Uh, umm… yeah. It’s true, I did say that but…”

[YUZUKI]: “I’ll follow your lead properly, so let’s go.”

[KAGEIE]: “Mrrgh… fine.”

[KAGEIE]: “But why didn’t Kagemochi come?”

    LOL. I suspect that Kagemochi is aware to some extent xD. Tho Kageie is such a dork~! Absolutely precious, and it’s also such gap moe, considering how he’s described to be large and scary in impression haha

      Kageie pretty much fulfills the stereotype of all brawns and no brain but a soft teddy bear with animals, ahah, but OH GOSH YEAH I love the way everyone voices their “… Excuse me?” of surprise in this chapter because it’s sooooo deadpan and confused especially when Kageie is freaking out over everything in front of them |D.

      Also, thank you so much for taking the time to comment like this ;3; it’s really fun to go back through these chapters with you~.

        Oh haha x)) ~ No problem! There are lots of chapters to catch up on, and the Uesugi drama is just so gripping (also Kagemochi that rascal xD ). I can’t help but want to comment on everything, but certainly, I’m trying to pace myself out lol. Thank you as well for taking your time to reply~ I enjoy seeing your thoughts and having these little conversations haha ^^ ))

    it’s too bad Kageie skipped consulting Kenshin about the whole match-making mission. I wanna know if Kenshin would lose his cool when asked about how to make Yuzuki happy.

      S A M E. But it also makes sense as to why Kageie skipped Kenshin because this is such a minor thing that you wouldn’t want to bother your esteemed lord about it, haha. Gods, I should definitely translate Kagemochi’s 4* card story because Kenshin always appears in his stories and the dynamic between the two is :’))) can we just have all of them–

    Kageie the cupid failed his mission HAHAHA XD
    So much rolling in laughter especially when he saw Mochi with the maid (I love the art of the soldiers and other extra characters I wonder if the artist is the same as Kannagi no Mori artist because it’s almost identical style)

      Ilinox responded:

      He tried so hard :’)) Haha I love it that we get other character sprites too, although there’s only like 3 different ones for guys. The old one, the young bandit one, and then the army one.

    Kageie…bless this pure soul! But seriously…you couldn’t have a worse candidate for cupid than this awkward werewolf(>y<)

    I enjoyed this follow-up very much – it’s nice to have the light chapters in between the more serious, plot-driven ones

      Ilinox responded:
      March 25, 2018 at 13:18

      I seriously can’t stop laughing at how obvious he is?? Like no wonder Kagemochi probably figured it out instantly. The part where he’s like “I wanna buy a hairpin! You’re gifting it!” is the best.

      It is! And now we’re going downhill from here–
