SNB Takeda ~ Chapter 9.2 ~

Chapter 9: A Bolt From the Blue

The Takeda army and the Sanada army, having formed an alliance, pursued their enemies with great vigour and soon began to pressure them.

Just when things were thought to be flowing smoothly, Masanobu was injured by an enemy’s surprise attack…

Chapter 9.2

[YUZUKI]: “I can’t see Shingen-san and the others anymore.”

As the battle progressed, the distance between the front line and us at the back became quite separated.

[MASANOBU]: “Are you concerned for everyone?”

[YUZUKI]: “… I’m sorry. When I’m not beside them I’m a little anxious.”

Masanobu-san gave a bright smile when I said that.

[MASANOBU]: “Don’t worry, because everyone in Sanada is there too.”

[MASANOBU]: “We’re completely different to Uesugi and Date’s impromptu allied forces. It’s hardly possible that we’ll lose.”

Masanobu-san’s words were full of confidence and I was slightly relieved.

[YUZUKI]: “… You’re right! I’m sorry for being so worried.”

[MASANOBU]: “No, those feelings are welcome.”

[MASANOBU]: “Only, we might be the ones who should be worrying.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh… what do you mean?”

[MASANOBU]: “Look, over there.”

I looked in the direction Masanobu-san pointed at as I was told.

There, not too far away, the Takeda army and Uesugi army soldiers were fighting.

[YUZUKI]: “No way… there’s enemies all the way here?”

[MASANOBU]: “It appears to be pretty much of a free-for-all. We should retreat a little more–“

[TAKEDA SOLDIER]: “Masanobu-sama!! One remaining soldier is…!!”

At the same time as those words, a wounded Date army soldier went for me from Masanobu-san’s blind spot.

[DATE SOLDIER]: “Krgh… now that it’s like this, even a woman or child is fine!”

[YUZUKI]: “……!!”

A blade approached in front of me.

[YUZUKI]: (M-My body is shaking and won’t move…)

Just when I thought I was in a desperate situation with no escape, at that moment–

[MASANOBU]: “Hagh–!”

[DATE SOLDIER]: “Gugh, ah…”

Masanobu-san broke in on time and brought down the enemy soldier.

[YUZUKI]: “Masanobu-san…! Thank you!”

[MASANOBU]: “… No, wait!”

[YUZUKI]: “Eh…!?”

Masanobu-san embraced me as if he was covering me.

[YUZUKI]: (I-I can’t see anything…!)

[MASANOBU]: “Kh…!”

Suddenly, Masanobu-san’s arms relaxed and he kneeled on the spot.

[YUZUKI]: (W-What happened…?)

I nervously looked him over.

There was a small knife stuck deeply into Masanobu-san’s thigh.

[YUZUKI]: “Masanobu-san!? W-Why…!?”

[MASANOBU]: “That soldier I cut down just now used his last strength to thrust that out… I’m glad you’re safe.”

Blood trickled down in drops at Masanobu-san’s feet.

[YUZUKI]: “I-I’m so sorry. Because of me, you’re hurt…!”

[MASANOBU]: “Don’t apologize. This sort of injury happens often on the battlefield.”

Saying that, Masanobu-san yanked out the knife by himself.

[YUZUKI]: “D-Don’t! If you pull it out quickly like that! The blood is pouring out!”

[MASANOBU]: “… I’m alright. It won’t be a problem if we stanch the bleeding.”

Masanobu-san tore his own clothes, his brows scrunched together, and wrapped it tightly around his thigh.

[YUZUKI]: (Masanobu-san said he was alright but it doesn’t look that way at all…)

Blood was already bleeding through the cloth Masanobu-san wrapped around his leg.

[MASANOBU]: “Now, let’s leave this place. There’s no guarantee we won’t be attacked again.”

Saying that, Masanobu-san started walking but he was dragging his wounded leg a little.

The flowing blood left bright red footprints on the ground.

[YUZUKI]: “Please wait…! At least drink my blood!”

[YUZUKI]: (I can’t watch Masanobu-san get any more hurt than this for my sake…)

But Masanobu-san shook his head.

[MASANOBU]: “No. I can’t possibly drink your blood.”

[YUZUKI]: “Why…”

[MASANOBU]: “If we drank your blood each time we were hurt… you’ll surely be drained dry.”

[MASANOBU]: “Injuries are an unavoidable part just from being on a battlefield. Right now, I’d like you to just let me accept your feelings.”

[YUZUKI]: “Masanobu-san…”

I didn’t know what I should say and so I instinctively fell silent.

[YUZUKI]: (But if Masanobu-san’s wound will get better with my blood…!)

I grabbed the fallen knife with that one thought and cut my thumb.

[YUZUKI]: “Ow…!”

[MASANOBU]: “What are you…!?”

Masanobu-san gripped my hand, wet with my blood, in a panic.

[YUZUKI]: “Please drink this…! I don’t want you to be hurt any more, Masanobu-san!”

[MASANOBU]: “…… kgh.”

[YUZUKI]: “Please!”

[MASANOBU]: “… Haa, I’m no match for you, am I.”

[YUZUKI]: “Then…”

[MASANOBU]: “I’ll drink this blood. Only enough to heal this wound though.”

Masanobu-san’s lips touched my thumb.

[MASANOBU]: “… ngh.”

Masanobu-san slowly licked up the blood that was trailing down from the cut on my thumb.

[YUZUKI]: (Masanobu-san’s tongue is at the cut… it tickles a little…)

[MASANOBU]: “… Mm, it doesn’t hurt anymore. I seem to be alright now.”

Masanobu-san gave one last lick and then drew his mouth away reluctantly.

[YUZUKI]: “I’m glad… I also worry about you, Masanobu-san. So, please don’t concern yourself about me and drink my blood.”

[MASANOBU]: “……”

[MASANOBU]: “From now on, people aiming for this blood may appear…”

[YUZUKI]: “…? Did you say something?”

[MASANOBU]: “… Nothing. Come now, we should hurry and move. This place is becoming dangerous as well.”

    Happy Halloween!
    I really like how Masanobu looks in his transformed version.
    Also I’m worried about Shingen. He’s too far away to have help from Yuzuki if something happens. =(

      He looks like a prince~ especially with that annoying visor hat gone LOL. Oomph, it’s always bad whenever the heroine ends up alone with just one other character during the war imo |D so many things can go wrong. But out of all of them I gotta admit I feel safest with Masanobu because he has a level head and an impressive title–.

        Yeah! In Chapter 4.4, we’re told about how he’s called the “Fleeing Danjou” basically known for being highly skilled in retreating and fighting while retreating, etc. Shingen had 3 generals among his 24 legendary generals with the titles of “Danjou” apparently.

    Phew, finally event was concluded… Otsukare…
    And, just saw event that will use(?) gold and silver tickets, I don’t understand it at all LOL

    And… Idk why, but I feel Masanobu was being aware since someone was saw them (maybe people from Uesugi). Well, put aside that. 404 Masatoyo not found, again. Ugh, he’s truly become invisible man (the writer was so mean to him TvT)

    Thank you for your hard works…

      Finally freed for like another week until they release the next event /o\ which they’ve already shown the event gachas for. Motonari being the 5* hmm. The other one isn’t an event but a gacha where you get to use the silver/gold tickets that you earned in the previous all-army event.

      I think so too. I’m actually not sure what he meant there and either, like you said, he sensed someone watching them. Or now that he’s actually tasted her blood he’s hinting at how he himself might start pursuing her more aggressively? Or maybe hinting that every time she reveals her blood’s power, there’ll be more people coming for her? It’s a mystery!

      LOL they mention Masatoyo (finally) in the next chapter so he’s still around! Just… hasn’t been seen at all.

        Just saw Twitter and yeah I didn’t realize it, that another event will be held again (OMG, let me grinding for a while in GBF, 4 knights handling restaurant and trust me, the food’s looks yummy…!!). Another *5 Kagekatsu and Kojuurou, plus *4 Kenshin and Kagemochi…

        And saw your tweet ili, about those tickets, well… Maybe they want to do something, idk (just give me the last *5 Kagemochi, the event one I mean). And since for me all those cards (except Nobuyuki, Kojuurou, and Masamune) are new for me, somehow got excited…

    masanobu i wont mind but lets not do this in the battlefield.

    [MASANOBU]: “From now on, people aiming for this blood may appear…”

    unlike masakage who was able to say something sweet and childish while taking my blood,
    i was disappointed because i was expecting him seductively saying, how sweet i am or something

      Haha, like you just said though, they’re on the battlefield and Masanobu is completely in business-mode |D.
