Chapter 10: All Worldly Things are Transitory

Several days after entering into an alliance with the Uesugi army, Shingen, who returned to the castle, seemed to be deep in thought about something.

While everyone tried to guess at his inmost thoughts, the words spoken from Shingen’s mouth had a premonition of further war…

Chapter 10.1

It’s been several days since the expedition ended and we returned to the castle. The restless days where I was treating injured soldiers finally settled and so I made an effort to compound medicine.

[MASANOBU]: “I’ve procured the herbs we were running short on.”

[YUZUKI]: “Thank you very much, Masanobu-san.”

[MASANOBU]: “You’re welcome.”

Masanobu-san smiled and then began mixing, using a part of the herbs he brought.

I looked at Masanobu-san’s profile as he did so and abruptly remembered the conversation I had with Masanobu-san the other day.

[YUZUKI]: “I’m sorry for breaking my promise not to leave that spot.”

[MASANOBU]: “No, that’s fine because you were unharmed. But… why did you leave that place?”

[YUZUKI]: “Because…”

I couldn’t talk about Imari-kun and so I was stuck with my words but Masanobu-san smiled softly.

[MASANOBU]: “I’m sorry for leaving you as well. Anyone would become uneasy being alone there… I’m honestly relieved you’re safe.”

[MASANOBU]: “But don’t be reckless anymore.”

I nodded strongly while feeling my heart warm by Masanobu-san’s kindness.

[YUZUKI]: (I’m never going to make them worry anymore.)

I swore that in my heart and then placed Shingen-san’s medicine, which was just completed, and water onto a tray.

[YUZUKI]: (… I wonder if Shingen-san is okay.)

Shingen-san’s health was stable but he seemed to be thinking about something and, ever since we returned home, he’s been absent-minded.

[YUZUKI]: (I wonder if it’s because of the alliance with the Uesugi army, like I’m thinking.)

I was worried but I should do everything I could do right now. I told myself that and headed towards Shingen-san’s room to hand over his medicine.

But Shingen-san wasn’t in his room. I searched the castle and asked everyone too but he couldn’t be found.

[YUZUKI]: (Why isn’t he anywhere… Is it possible something happened?)

My feet stopped from uneasiness. When I told myself not to think about weird things, my shoulder was suddenly patted from behind.

[YUZUKI]: (! Shingen-san!?)

But there stood Nobuharu-san. Nobuharu-san’s face was clouded with what seemed like worry and he grabbed my shoulders.

[NOBUHARU]: “What are you making that look for. Did something bad happen?”

[NOBUHARU]: “If you don’t mind it being me, I’ll lend a ear.”

Hearing his gentle words, my anxious feelings slipped and spilled out.

[YUZUKI]: “Um… there’s no sight of Shingen-san anywhere. I was wondering where he was…”

[NOBUHARU]: “Oh, it’s about that.”

Nobuharu-san gave a relieved smile and then removed his hands from my shoulders.

[NOBUHARU]: “If it’s Shingen, he’s surely in the privy.”

[YUZUKI]: (Privy… like the toilet? But if he’s been there for so long that no one’s seen him then…)

[YUZUKI]: “Could he have collapsed in the privy…? I’m going to find him right now!”

[NOBUHARU]: “Nah, it’s alright.”

[YUZUKI]: “But just in case…”

[NOBUHARU]: “I see. You don’t know yet, huh, about Shingen’s habit.”

[YUZUKI]: (Shingen-san’s… habit?)

[NOBUHARU]: “He has a habit of shutting himself in the privy.”

[YUZUKI]: “In the privy…”

[NOBUHARU]: “There’s a privy just for Shingen. It’s cleaned and straightened neatly and when I used it once he got quite angry at me.”

[YUZUKI]: “Come to think of it, I’ve heard about that. But he hasn’t seemed to do that recently…”

[NOBUHARU]: “That’s because it’s been pretty busy since you came. He hasn’t had time to coop up in the privy.”

[NOBUHARU]: “Currently, the war’s on hold and we’ve made an alliance with Uesugi, so he must want to think about many things.”

Nobuharu-san scratched his head and gave a small grin. I was relieved that it wasn’t a serious situation by his usual appearance.

[NOBUHARU]: “There’s no need to worry and he’ll return to normal soon… More importantly.”

[NOBUHARU]: “I thought this when I touched your shoulders earlier, but… you have skinny arms as usual, huh.”

[YUZUKI]: (Do I…?)

But it might not have been unreasonable for Nobuharu-san, whose body was trained, to think so.

[NOBUHARU]: “This is dangerous what with battles continuing on… Alright, let’s do some training now!”

[YUZUKI]: “Training… me!?”

[NOBUHARU]: “Yeah. Even if you’re a women, it never hurts to train because you don’t know when an enemy will suddenly come at you.”

[YUZUKI]: “That may be true, but… it’s impossible for me to train like everyone right away.”

[NOBUHARU]: “What, I won’t go hard on you right off the start. Come on, let’s go.”

Nobuharu-san took my hand and half-dragged me to the courtyard.

[MASAKAGE]: “Geez, you’re late! Nobuharu-san!”

[NOBUHARU]: “Oh, my bad, my bad.”

[MASAKAGE]: “I thought you forgot our promise, but you came so I’m glad. Anyway, putting that aside…”

Masakage-kun eyed my hand which was still grabbed by Nobuharu-san.

[MASAKAGE]: “What’s with her?”

[NOBUHARU]: “You’ve grown quite a bit and teaching someone is also good for yourself. Therefore…”

Nobuharu-san patted my back and said this loudly.

[NOBUHARU]: “Try training this girl.”

[MASAKAGE]: “Wha, WHAAAT!?”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh!?”

(T/N: Title is an interesting idiom. The literal meaning is what I chose to use, but I’m seeing the English idiom “Life is full of ups and downs” for this as well. The English one sounds kinda lame to me though LOL.)

    Waaaa! This chapter was funny! And I loved the CG.
    Nobuharu, it’s your time to shine!

    I can’t imagine Shingen getting angry at Nobuharu for using his privy… LOL

    Anyway, why Nobuharu expect Masakage to train Yuzuki?
    Does he thinks he himself is too strong and would hurt her? Or does he thinks Masakage is to weak so he would be well matched against Yuzuki?? I seriously suspect it’s the second.

    =)

      He only really gets like one to two parts in this chapter :’)) they don’t really have a dedicated Nobuharu chapter now that I think about it. But I think you’ll really like this chapter because it’s 1000% Shingen and the heroine being a married couple LOL.

      Nobuharu’s belief is that if you can teach something to someone that helps you out too + proves that you really know your stuff |D he has the greatest of philosophies imo.

    The title looks like it can fit in Uesugi chapters too. :P

    Nobuharu in the CG looks like he’s heartbroken instead of plain worried… heh.

    [NOBUHARU]: “That’s because it’s been pretty busy since you came. He hasn’t had time to coop up in the privy.”

    I had to read this twice because I read it first as “poop” lmaooooooo

    Masakage-kun eyed my hand which was still grabbed by Nobuharu-san.
    [MASAKAGE]: “What’s with her?”

    I think Masakage already has a bad feeling since then… |D

      Haha, the title does, doesn’t it. I still really enjoy the title themes SNB has going on especially with how Uesugi and Takeda both have idioms but Uesugi sticking to 4 kanji idioms only and Takeda just grabbing whatever they want.

      I thought the same about the CG too LOL they show you previews before you go into the chapter and I kept thinking something super serious was going to go down but no… he just looks excessively hurt in his worry, I guess?

      I KEEP READING IT AS POOP TOO LOL AND I AM REGRETTING IT SO HARD. But I also can’t stop laughing and think it’s fitting so |D;; oops sorry Shingen.

      Masakage’s expression is so funny here. He’s definitely squinting suspiciously at Nobuharu.

    Hmm… For me, toilet (or privy) are a place to get some ideas where I’m stuck (out of ideas), but sometimes I do like Shingen was.

    Out of topic. Hanbee’s newest card was out, and… Damn, he’s too cute (no, need to save my jewels)

    Thank you fo your hard works…

      I do that in the shower or bath LOL not the toilet!! But I mean, whatever floats his boat I guess |D;; we all have our own peculiar habits and idiosyncrasies.

      I’m wiping my head in relief that it’s nothing I have to try and get (not that I got anything in any of the last 4 event gachas with Hideyoshi). We’re also having another repeat event so time for me to sit back and relax, haha.

    [YUZUKI]: “I’m sorry for breaking my promise not to leave that spot.”
    im glad he’s not mad.

    this is my imagination of the scene.
    ME: where is shingen?
    NOBUHARU: he’s relaxing in the toilet
    ME: WTF for that long!!!
    NO WAY CAN I EVER RELAX IN THE TOILET NO MATTER HOW CLEAN IT IS. it’s pretty wierd for guys. my brother only stays that long for private stuff.

    that CG of nobuharu’s arms around me and those eyes. damn it. im melting.

    [NOBUHARU]: “I thought this when I touched your shoulders earlier, but… you have skinny arms as usual, huh.”
    NOBUHARU]: “This is dangerous what with battles continuing on… Alright, let’s do some training now!”

    can i say no?

    [NOBUHARU]: “Try training this girl.”

    oh, it’s masakage. time to poke some fun on him.

      YEAH I mean maybe I can understand if it’s a bathroom with a tub and stuff cause someone can relax in the bath for a long time. But I’m pretty sure it’s just a toilet. And it literally looks like an outhouse so ;;;; HOW CLEAN CAN TOILETS IN THE SENGOKU PERIOD BE LMAO.

      Nobuharu is way too intent on training Yuzuki /o\ he can’t expect her to have strong beefy arms like him!
