SNB Uesugi ~ Chapter 9.2 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 9: All or Nothing

In the moment a predicament was escaped, the large army of Takeda and Sanada were soon approaching.

Kenshin, who was concerned about the castle town becoming a battlefield, chose to confront them in an overwhelmingly unfavorable situation…!

Chapter 9.2

I couldn’t do anything but watch intently as everyone in Uesugi advanced towards the large force right in front of us.

[YUZUKI]: (Kenshin-san, everyone… I’m sure they’ll be okay, right?)

I had to believe in everyone, but while I thought that I was unable to suppress my anxiety at our enemy’s might.

[KAGEKATSU]: “……”

I looked beside me and Kagekatsu-kun was also silent and clenching his fist to the point where his hand was white.

[YUZUKI]: (So, Kagekatsu-kun is also uneasy…)

When I thought about Kagekatsu-kun’s kindness earlier when he tried to soften my anxieties—

[YUZUKI]: (This time I’ll…)

I gently placed my hand on top of Kagekatsu-kun’s tightly clenched fist.

[KAGEKATSU]: “……!”

Kagekatsu-kun was slightly surprised and then looked at me.

[KAGEKATSU]: “I should believe… in my father and everyone. But I’m still this uneasy. It’s pathetic, isn’t it…”

The lips that murmured that seemed to tremble a little.

[YUZUKI]: “Even if we believe in them, we’ll worry. Because…”

I looked straight up at Kagekatsu-kun, who was staring hard at me, and met his eyes.

[YUZUKI]: “… Kenshin-san is really important to us…”

The tension from Kagekatsu-kun’s face, as we looked at each other, seemed to disappear a bit.

[KAGEKATSU]: “Mm, you’re right… thank you.”

Kagekatsu-kun opened his fist and squeezed my hand hard.

[YUZUKI]: (I’ll believe… and wait. For everyone…)

I grabbed Kagekatsu-kun’s hand back in the same way and prayed for Kenshin-san and everyone’s safety.

[KANETSUGU]: “Hey, how long are you two going to stand there. Let’s get away to a place where those guys won’t find us.”

[YUZUKI]: “… Right.”

Urged by Kanetsugu-san, I shook off my concerns and left the place.

 

When the Uesugi army clashed with the Takeda and Sanada armies directly in front of them, the two sides immediately started fighting.

However—

[SHINGEN]: “Haha! Kenshin… to come directly at us with this number of people—“

[SHINGEN]: “Are you looking down on us? Or are you trying to say you’re confident?”

[KENSHIN]: “… Neither.”

The two generals of both sides were strangely calm.

[SHINGEN]: “Then why’d you come with such a small force… Do you want to be killed?”

[KENSHIN]: “… Enough with the boring provocations, Shingen.”

[KENSHIN]: “From the beginning, you did not intend to force your way with this large force, correct?”

[SHINGEN]: “… Why do you say that.”

[KENSHIN]: “If you were a simple commander who would spread an ostentatious army like this and attack—“

[KENSHIN]: “The Takeda army would have long been utterly destroyed.”

[SHINGEN]: “… Jeez, you won’t let me see a single look of discomposure… As always, you’re a shrewd man.”

[KENSHIN]: “… Thus, what is your purpose.”

[SHINGEN]: “What, I heard you joined with Date so I just came to check things out.”

[SHINGEN]: “Let’s leave everything around us to our vassals… and have our own competition between us.”

[KENSHIN]: “… Very well.”

Like that, Uesugi Kenshin and Takeda Shingen’s battle quietly began.

[SHINGEN]: “… Damn, no matter how many times we fight there’s no opening…”

While the battle of both armies happened, Kenshin and Shingen continued their rivalry.

[SHINGEN]: “… But that’s why it’s interesting. Fighting with you!”

[KENSHIN]: “… Like usual, you’re a tenacious man.”

Both of their blades crossed many times with none of their vigor declining at all.

At that time—

[TAKEDA SOLDIER]: “… Reporting!”

[TAKEDA SOLDIER]: “Just now, information has arrived on the movement of the aforementioned allied forces!”

[SHINGEN]: “What did you say…?”

[KENSHIN]: “…!?”

[SHINGEN]: “Che… those guys moved, huh… It’s much quicker than I expected…”

[KENSHIN]: “Those men…?”
