SNB Takeda ~ Chapter 9.4 ~

Posted on Updated on

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 9.4

[SHINGEN]: “Haagh!!”

[SHINGEN]: “… We’ve advanced pretty far. Kenshin should be close too.”

[NOBUHARU]: “That seems so… Shingen, leave the rest to us and go ahead!”

[SHINGEN]: “Alright, I’m counting on you guys! Nobuharu-san, Masakage!”

[MASAKAGE]: “Heh! This is easy peasy! –Draaagh!!”

Masakage mowed down an approaching enemy while confidently grinning.

[SHINGEN]: “… Jeez, he’s become quite a reliable commander, huh.”

Shingen had a smile at his mouth as he cut down a soldier blocking his path and proceeded ahead.

After moving forward for a while he saw Kenshin standing alone. Shingen furrowed his brows for an instant at that defenseless figure without any bodyguards, but he slowly approached Kenshin.

[SHINGEN]: “Yo, Kenshin.”

[KENSHIN]: “… You’ve come.”

[SHINGEN]: “I’m continuing what we had earlier. Let’s settle things this time.”

Shingen raised his sword but, in contrast, Kenshin did not move at all and gazed at Shingen.

[KENSHIN]: “……”

[SHINGEN]: “What’s wrong, you’re not going to draw your blade?”

[KENSHIN]: “I was not waiting here to do battle with you.”

[SHINGEN]: “… What?”

[KENSHIN]: “Presently, there is something I would like you to hear rather than battling.”

[SHINGEN]: “Something, huh… is this also a trap inspired by that Date brat?”

[KENSHIN]: “No, you are mistaken. This is–“

At that moment, a voice resounded from behind Shingen.

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Shingen. Listen obediently to what Kenshin-sama has to say.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Otherwise, you will end up seeing this girl’s blood.”

[SHINGEN]: “… Girl? No, it can’t be…!”

Shingen turned around in a panic and his breath caught. There stood–

[YUZUKI]: “Shingen-san…!”

Yuzuki, caught by Kagemochi.

[SHINGEN]: “Why are you here…”

My heart hurt, like it was stabbed sharply, at Shingen-san who was looking at my captured state with a shocked expression.

[YUZUKI]: (I didn’t want to drag Shingen-san down like this…)

[YUZUKI]: “I’m so sorry, Shingen-san…”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Now, quickly, lower your blade. You do not wish for this girl to be hurt, do you?”

[YUZUKI]: “……!”

I reflexively held my breath when a blade was placed at my throat.

[SHINGEN]: “Kagemochi, you…!”

[KENSHIN]: “… Halt, Shingen.”

Kenshin-san stopped Shingen-san, who looked like he would assault Kagemochi at any time.

[KENSHIN]: “It is not my intention to raise a conflict with you here.”

[KENSHIN]: “Kagemochi, you as well, release that girl. It appears that Shingen will listen more likely that way.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “But…”

[SHINGEN]: “Exactly like Kenshin said. Remove your hands from her right now. If you don’t…”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “… I understand. Here, go on.”

Saying that, Kagemochi-san gave my back a push and Shingen-san ran up to me right away.

[SHINGEN]: “Are you okay!? Nothing was done to you, right!?”

[YUZUKI]: “Y-yes. I’m sorry for causing trouble…”

[SHINGEN]: “What’re you saying. It’s natural for me to worry about you, right? What’s most important is that you don’t seem hurt–“

[SHINGEN]: “Wait, that cut on your finger… were you cut by Kagemochi!?”

Shingen-san grabbed my hand as soon as he saw the cut on my thumb.

[YUZUKI]: “N-no… that cut isn’t related to the Uesugi army.”

[SHINGEN]: “I see… we’ll have to treat it properly later.”

Shingen-san hugged me tightly and then gave a large sigh.

[SHINGEN]: “… I’m so glad you’re safe.”

[KENSHIN]: “Will you listen to my words with this now?”

[SHINGEN]: “… Yeah, fine.”

Shingen-san shielded me behind him and glared at Kenshin-san.

[KENSHIN]: “You do not have to be so wary. We have no malicious intentions.”

[SHINGEN]: “Bold of you to say that when you captured this girl.”

[KENSHIN]: “I apologize for the somewhat rough behavior, but I wished for you to hear this by all means.”

[KENSHIN]: “… Furthermore, it is something that is beneficial to you and yours as well.”

[SHINGEN]: “Hah! Beneficial? Very well. If you just want me to listen then I’ll listen.”

Kenshin-san stared directly at Shingen-san, who didn’t release his caution, and slowly strung his words.

[KENSHIN]: “… Shingen.”

[KENSHIN]: “Won’t you join hands with me?”

    Hello? Is anyone gonna talk about Shingen being openly affectionate to MC? Lmao these two…
    Did… Did Shingen just hugged her in front of Kenshin and Kagemochi? Are they not seeing this???? That must’ve been awkward for them…

      I think that’s why Kenshin tried to politely interrupt them LOL but yeah I’m cracking up at just imagining Kagemochi and Kenshin standing there watching Shingen fuss over the MC and hugging her and stuff. And like when Kagemochi pushed her forward to release her she can’t have gone THAT far right? So, I can’t help but imagine them being pretty close to Kagemochi… unless he walked to where Kenshin was (or took a few steps back).

      I mean, I totally see where Kagemochi is coming from since it guarantees that Shingen can’t do anything and will give his undivided attention to Kenshin but… oops LOL Kenshin totally looks bad now because 1) not only did he let Masamune use his dirty tricks (guerrilla warfare) but 2) Kagemochi is kidnapping innocent girls to use as a hostage.

      I know, right? I’m only keeping up with SNB as my only mobage but even I want some rest LOL at least space out these events a week or two from each other. Not just 3 days, what the heck!

      Aw, you’re welcome and thank you for commenting as always!

    Uesugi: Shingen’s broad back blocks lover’s sights.
    Takeda: Kenshin interrupt lover’s sweet time by voice out.
    So it’s DRAW 😝

    And at the beginning, Shingen is willing to listen to Kenshin because Kenshin know him well so there’s no need for hostage taking to occur Kagemochi.
    [SHINGEN]: “Bold of you to say that when you captured this girl.” It’s your fault Mochi, you drag your beloved lord’s name to the mud again 😧

      Oh my gosh, I totally forgot about that |D they’re just trying to one-up each other in the other’s routes, huh.

      HAHA I DIDN’T THINK THAT AGAIN. Gosh, Kagemochi, that’s so sad he’s trying so hard to help Kenshin but just keeps dragging it through the mud.

      Hey now, she did the best that she could with what she had there! Unfortunately, the way Kenshin is treated by his people and general makes you feel like you’re committing the ultimate sin when you interfere or influence him LOL so I don’t blame her for feeling driven into that kind of a desperate choice. Meanwhile, in Takeda’s route Shingen is very honest about protecting her and his own feelings. (Also, Kenshin is much more professional compared to Masakage in keeping hostages– jkjk).
