SNB Sanada ~ Chapter 10.1 ~

Chapter 10: Depart, Towards Hope!

In search for a clue on Himemiko-sama, they decided to investigate in the outskirts of the capital.

As she prepared for the trip with a mixture of anticipation and anxiousness, the commanders came to visit one after another…!?

Chapter 10.1

[YUZUKI]: (I wonder what sort of place it is…)

When I was thinking about going close to the capital…

[YUKIMURA]: “That reminds me, you don’t know anything about the capital, huh.”

At Yukimura-kun’s words, everyone gave an explanation.

According to Imari-kun and everyone’s explanation…

In the past, Himemiko-sama was in the capital and governed Shinga.

However, after Himemiko-sama disappeared, it was then that yakuma made their sudden appearance in great amounts.

[IMARI]: “Yes… and even now no one can approach the capital…”

Imari-kun murmured that sadly.

[NOBUYUKI]: “Yes. After that, there was no one who tried approaching in the first place, but…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “The Date army purposefully went on an expedition close to that dangerous place…”

[SAIZOU]: “There’s no mistake in thinking that there must be an important something there.”

[SASUKE]: “Something, huh… I wonder what it is exactly.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “That’s why you’re going looking, right.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Let’s set out… tomorrow though it’s sudden.”

Yukimura-kun said that and looked at me worriedly.

[YUKIMURA]: “You’re probably tired since the last expedition just ended but… will this be alright?”

I returned a smile at his words.

[YUZUKI]: “Yes, of course.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Then it’s decided. We should rest early today in preparation for tomorrow.”

I nodded at Nobuyuki-san’s words and stood from my seat.

When I did–.

[SASUKE]: “Waaaait a minute!”

We all suddenly stopped at Sasuke-kun’s voice.

[SASUKE]: “Hey, originally, we were to watch the house to protect her, right?”

[SASUKE]: “But now that she’s going on the expedition, I can come along too, right?”

When Sasuke-kun said this, complaining…

[SAIZOU]: “That’s true. Putting aside Sasuke, if she is going then I should go together too.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “It’s not fair to exclude just us…”

The three brought up their dissatisfaction one after another.

[YUKIMURA]: “I understand your guys’ feelings but…”

When Yukimura-kun stumbled over his words, as if troubled, Nobuyuki-san quietly continued.

[NOBUYUKI]: “Recently, we’ve been prone to being away from the territory and I believe the people are uneasy.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Therefore, we’d like to entrust the Sanada territory to you all and have you remain here.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Yeah. I’ll be at ease if you guys are here!”

As Yukimura-kun and Nobuyuki-san gave that explanation…

[SASUKE]: “… Well, if Yukimura and Nobuyuki-sama say that then it can’t be helped.”

[SAIZOU]: “It is a shame to not go together with her, but if you wish to entrust the Sanada territory to me by all means then I have no choice.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “… Fine.”

The three unwillingly agreed.

[SASUKE]: “D’you have some time?”

When I was preparing for the trip in my room, Sasuke-kun came to visit.

[YUZUKI]: “Sasuke-kun, what’s wrong?”

[SASUKE]: “You… you’re going close to the capital, are you gonna be OK?”

[YUZUKI]: “Yep, leave it to me. I’ll do my best to be of use!”

I tried to answer energetically but Sasuke-kun was restless as if he was worried.

[SASUKE]: “… M-Maybe I should secretly come along too.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh, but–“

[SASUKE]: “Because I–“

Sasuke-kun’s face reddened as he spoke and his words stopped like they got stuck.

[YUZUKI]: “Sasuke-kun?”

I tilted my head, looking at Sasuke-kun’s red face…

[SASUKE]: “Um… I… I worry!”

[SASUKE]: “That’s why… I want to… be beside you as much as I can, or something…”

While wondering about Sasuke-kun, who was different from usual and unconfident, I was happy about his concern.

[YUZUKI]: “… Thank you, Sasuke-kun. I’m sorry for making you worry.”

[SASUKE]: “N-No, it’s not something to be apologized for.”

Sasuke-kun blew out a large breath and scratched his head, troubled.

[SASUKE]: “Well… I am worried but Yukimura and Nobuyuki-sama are there, so…”

[SASUKE]: “Anyway, don’t push yourself too hard.”

Saying that, Sasuke-kun regained his calm and went back.

[YUZUKI]: (…? This time it’s–)

A while after Sasuke-kun went back I noticed that someone came to the front of my room again.

[SAIZOU]: “Excuse my intrusion.”

The person who entered was Saizou-kun, with an unusually serious look.

[SAIZOU]: “I thought I saw Sasuke come out of here some time ago…”

[SAIZOU]: “Did you speak with him?”

[YUZUKI]: “…? Erm, yes…”

When I was wondering where he was going with that…

[SAIZOU]: “It’s not just him who worries about you.”

Saizou-kun’s expression became even more serious and he stretched out a hand to gently stroke my cheek.

[YUZUKI]: “Eh… Saizou-kun…?”

That serious expression, which I had never seen, unconsciously caught my eyes.

And then there was the light sound of something popping near my ear–

[SAIZOU]: “… A present from me.”

Saying that, Saizou-kun presented a single beautiful flower.

[YUZUKI]: “Wow, thank you…”

The Saizou-kun who was looking at me returned to his normal expression, but…

[YUZUKI]: (Somehow, his presence was so different from usual I was shocked… a bit…)

[SAIZOU]: “Heh… if you stare at me so passionately, you’ll get burned.”

Saizou-kun said that in his usual manner at my confusion and then left he room.

[YUZUKI]: (Just now that was Saizou-kun’s own care… I think, right.)

When I thought that…

I felt that there was a noise outside.

[YUZUKI]: “Maybe… it’s my imagination?”

I gently opened the sliding screen but there was no one there–
