Chapter 3: Decisive Battle, Counter Attack Plan at the Castle!
A large horde of yakuma advanced on the castle!
These weren’t opponents they could fight directly, but in order to get through this pinch they carried out a strategy!
[YUZUKI]: (W-What do we do… Yukimura-san and the others are being pushed back!)
[YUZUKI]: “Nobuyuki-san, there’s a problem! Yukimura-san and the others are–“
The yakuma that attacked the castle were endless as well.
And so there was no mistake that telling Nobuyuki-san, “We need to save Yukimura-san and the others”, would only trouble him.
[YUZUKI]: (But at this rate, Yukimura-san and the others will…! Isn’t there anything I can do.)
[YUZUKI]: (… I know! If my blood is used like that time before, then maybe…!)
[SASUKE]: “Haa… haa… Dammit, the yakuma just keep coming and coming. There’s really no end…”
[SAIZOU]: “I’ve grown disgusted at looking at these vulgar yakuma as well.”
[YUKIMURA]: “Everyone, we have to hold out here!”
[YUKIMURA]: “It might be tough, but if we collapse then everyone in Sanada territory will–“
[YUKIMURA]: “Wha!? What are you doing here! It’s dangerous if you come out, you know!?”
[YUZUKI]: “I’m sorry, Yukimura-san.”
[YUZUKI]: “But I also… want to help everyone in the Sanada army. I can’t fight but… won’t my blood be useful?”
[SASUKE]: “… Yukimura. She came all this way through danger. Let’s appreciate that spirit.”
[SAIZOU]: “Heh. If you say you won’t drink, Yukimura, then allow me to drink.”
[YUKIMURA]: “… N-No! Thi… this is what I, as the general, should do.”
[KAMANOSUKE]: “… You only say that at these times.”
[YUKIMURA]: “If it h-hurts, I’m sorry. But I’ll try to be as gentle as I can… um, I’ll do my best!”
[YUZUKI]: “… Okay.”
The same as when he first drank my blood, Yukimura-san’s fangs gently pricked my neck.
[YUKIMURA]: “Nngh… nghah…”
[YUKIMURA]: “…… Gugh! My body’s hot…!”
[SAIZOU]: “Beautiful… how magnificent!”
[KAMANOSUKE]: “So this is the rumored awakening…”
[YUKIMURA]: “It’s the same as before… Power is filling every corner of my body… with this I can…!”
[YUZUKI]: (Yukimura-san… I’m glad…)
[YUKIMURA]: “… LET’S GO! HAAAGH!”
[SASUKE]: “Woah!? The wind pressure from the spear came even here.”
[SAIZOU]: “Heh. Then we should also start our counter attack.”
[KAMANOSUKE]: “Mm. Looks like it’ll end soon with this… let’s try working hard just a bit more.”
[YUKIMURA]: “Everyone, this power won’t continue long. Let’s follow up in one go!”
[THREE PEOPLE]: “Understood!”
[YUKIMURA]: “Thank you. Thanks to the courage you brought out, we’ll be able to win against the yakuma.”
[YUKIMURA]: “Just watch from there.”
[YUKIMURA]: “C’mon, let’s go! Let’s start our counter attack!!”
[YUZUKI]: (I’m glad I came here… I wanted to be of help to everyone, even just a little.)
[YUZUKI]: (But this power of mine… what in the world is it exactly…)
