SNB Uesugi ~ Chapter 10.3 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 10: A Thousand Mixed Complications

The commanders are shaken by the order, announced suddenly from Kenshin, to invade the Oda and Toyotomi territories.

What is Kenshin’s real intention when he remains silent and does not try to speak…?

Chapter 10.3

Not hearing the answer I wanted from Kageie-san, I went in the direction Kanetsugu-san left in.

[YUZUKI]: (It’s harder than usual to talk to him after I saw his fight with Kagekatsu-kun…)

But still, I resolved myself and stood in front of Kanetsugu-san.

[YUZUKI]: “Excuse me… Kanetsugu-san.”

[KANETSUGU]: “You’re in the way of my war preparations.”

Kanetsugu-san was checking his swords and armor and didn’t look my way.

[YUZUKI]: “Kanetsugu-san… how were you able to agree to go out to war?”

[KANETSUGU]: “I already said it earlier. You’re not a commander so you wouldn’t understand even if I explained.”

[YUZUKI]: “Please, I’m asking you to tell me… If you don’t, Kagekatsu-kun will—“

[KANETSUGU]: “… Shut up!”

[YUZUKI]: “Wah…!”

I was suddenly pressed into the wall by Kanetsugu-san.

[KANETSUGU]: “… I don’t.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh…?”

[KANETSUGU]: “… I don’t agree.”

[YUZUKI]: “…!”

[KANETSUGU]: “I don’t know why Kenshin-sama suddenly proposed to go to war and I don’t agree with it…!”

[YUZUKI]: “Then… why are you preparing for war…”

[KANETSUGU]: “Because I’m a commander of the Uesugi army.”

[KANETSUGU]: “If the general decides to go to war then I will obey.”

[YUZUKI]: “That’s…”

[KANETSUGU]: “We decided to trust Kenshin-sama’s beliefs and that is why we’re in the Uesugi army.”

[KANETSUGU]: “That’s why I obey Kenshin-sama’s words. Even if… I don’t know the reasons behind those words right now.”

[YUZUKI]: (That’s… Kanetsugu-san’s pride as a commander…)

Still, I couldn’t back down here.

[YUZUKI]: “At this rate, Kagekatsu-kun might disappear!”

[KANETSUGU]: “……”

[YUZUKI]: “I’m begging… please lend your help…!”

I stared at Kanetsugu-san’s pained expression at a distance close enough to feel our breaths.

[KANETSUGU]: “… The general is Kenshin-sama. The current Kagekatsu is only one commander of Uesugi.”

[KANETSUGU]: “If he doesn’t trust the general’s words… then he can only leave.”

[YUZUKI]: “No way…”

Kanetsugu-san removed his hands from me and turned his back.

[KANETSUGU]: “I have preparations to make. Don’t get in my way.”

[YUZUKI]: “……”

[KANETSUGU]: “… But.”

[YUZUKI]: “…!”

When I looked at Kanetsugu-san, hearing his muttered words, he had an unusually uneasy expression.

[KANETSUGU]: “I… don’t want Kagekatsu to leave either…”

I learned about Kanetsugu-san’s true feelings at that voice which seemed to strike a chord.

 

[YUZUKI]: “… Kagemochi-san.”

I searched for Kagemochi-san and found him lost in thought in the archives.

[YUZUKI]: “Um… am I interrupting?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “No… More importantly, do you have something for me?”

[YUZUKI]: “I wanted to ask what you thought, Kagemochi-san. About Kenshin-san saying we’d go to war…”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “I…”

Kagemochi-san hesitated for an instant, but then he immediately continued his words.

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Of course, I will just obey Kenshin-sama’s thoughts.”

[YUZUKI]: “Why?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Why… you ask. It’s troubling…”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh…?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “This is the first time… that I’ve been unable to understand Kenshin-sama.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “However, even if I do not understand his real intentions I will obey Kenshin-sama.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Because I owe that man a debt I can never repay, even if I spend my entire life…”

[YUZUKI]: (That’s Kagemochi-san and Kenshin-san’s bond…)

[KAGEMOCHI]: “But this isn’t the answer you wished for, is it.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “I apologize.”

[YUZUKI]: “… No, you haven’t done anything wrong, Kagemochi-san.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “However—“

[YUZUKI]: “The one who’s wrong is Kenshin-san.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “… Huh?”

I spoke to all the commanders in the Uesugi army, but everyone said that they didn’t understand Kenshin-san’s real intentions.

[YUZUKI]: “Nobody understands or agrees and yet he won’t explain. Even if it’s Kenshin-san… that’s cruel.”

[YUZUKI]: “I… I’m going to ask Kenshin-san his reason for war!”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “… I believe it will be futile.”

[YUZUKI]: “If he doesn’t talk then…”

When I thought about what to do, Kagekatsu-kun’s figure appeared in my head.

[YUZUKI]: “I’m… going to start a r-rebellion.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Rebellion?”

[YUZUKI]: “That’s right! I’m going to defy Kenshin-san until he talks about his reason for war.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “… Do you think I would let pass those who would go against Kenshin-sama?”

Kagemochi-san walked up to me while speaking in a cold voice.

[YUZUKI]: “…!”

All too soon I was cornered against the wall and Kagemochi-san touched my throat.

[YUZUKI]: “Kagemochi… -san…!”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Haha…”

However, Kagemochi-san did not put any power into the hand touching my throat and he suddenly began to laugh.

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Rebellion, you say… ahaha. How do I say this… you really are an adorable lady.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Very well. Please let me join as well.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh…?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “I will join your ranks of rebellion as well. Let’s start up a rebellion against Kenshin-sama in your way.”

In front of me, while I blinked my eyes rapidly, Kagemochi-san gave a mischievous smile.

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Aah, that reminds me… we should bring Kagekatsu-sama along too.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “It would be a problem if he went ahead and ran off somewhere.”

[YUZUKI]: (Kagemochi-san…! He understands Kagekatsu-kun’s feelings…!)

At the same time I thought that I was no match for Kagemochi-san, a sense of relief welled up at being able to get an encouraging comrade.

[IMARI]: “Then I’ll go find Kagekatsu-san!”

[YUZUKI]: (Yes, let’s start our “rebellion”…!)

    I suspect that, as soon as Kagemochi had those two together, he will throw them in a cell or something, until the stupidity wears off…

    I want to hear Kagemochi laugh!!!! =,(

      Sometimes I wonder if Kagemochi gets fed up with Kenshin too LOL despite being a diehard Kenshin fan and willing to do dirty business for him. But with how high EQ Kagemochi has he must get annoyed at how Kenshin tries to ignore all his emotions only to act on them… unless this is just a recent thing because of the heroine :’)).

    What kind of rebellion is this that she’s talking about? XD The quote doesn’t make it any easier.

      I think she just means standing up to Kenshin or going against his orders |D;; but yeah they emphasized the last word “rebellion” which is why I put it in quotes but I don’t know what they meant by that either, haha.

    Kagemochi finally appear~!! But… Omg, Yuzuki… You’ve started a problem, you know. And you said in in front of the most bea- ehem, most terrifying wolf if you talking bad about Kenshin. But in the end, he join the rebellion along with her, plus somehow I like Kagemochi’s laugh (thanks a lot, Midorikawa-san)

    Thank you for your hard works…
    (PS : OMG, Shingen’s newest card… 😍)

    I’m not surprise on Kanetsugu’s answer but in Kagemochi it’s…… IMPOSSIBLE!!! щ(゜ロ゜щ) how she tame that wolf?!

      Kagemochi sounded so stunned when she said that and then the dangerous way he said “… Do you think I would let pass those who would go against Kenshin-sama?” LMAO GIRL YOU’RE PLAYING WITH FIRE! She’s lucky Kagemochi decided to join her and feels like she doesn’t mean Kenshin any true harm, otherwise… uh oh.

    [YUZUKI]: “I’m… going to start a r-rebellion.”

    wait what? here i thought kagekatsu is going to rebel. yuzuki in usuegi’s route, she’s so… so… (im not so sure if this is the right term) way to stupid. first, jumping off the cliff in front of kenshin now, you’re going to rebel against kenshin.

    [KAGEMOCHI]: “… Do you think I would let pass those who would go against Kenshin-sama?”
    [KAGEMOCHI]: “I will join your ranks of rebellion as well. Let’s start up a rebellion against Kenshin-sama in your way.”
    In front of me, while I blinked my eyes rapidly, Kagemochi-san gave a mischievous smile.
    [KAGEMOCHI]: “Aah, that reminds me… we should bring Kagekatsu-sama along too.”

    if its someone else, kagemochi would have kill anyone who rebel.

    part of me is happy. that someone is supportive to me even if im way too stupid. damn this makes me fell for kagemochi more.

    from all the route, why is it… this route is full of drama.

      Ilinox responded:
      November 29, 2018 at 20:46

      IT’S LITERALLY MITSUHIDE AND NOBUNAGA ALL OVER AGAIN LMAO. Not getting the answer you want from your general? Rebellion!! Except that’s a surefire way to get killed, she’s just lucky that Kenshin has such a soft spot for her |D;; and Mitsuhide was lucky that Nobunaga was impressed by his schemes (although Mitsuhide was prepared to commit suicide for distrusting his general and rebelling).

      Haha, indeed, Kagemochi was ready to kill her at the very beginning too /o\ no one is more protective over Kenshin than Kagemochi. I really liked the bit where Kagemochi apologized for not giving the answer the heroine wanted, because he knows where she’s coming from but he also knows what it means to be the subordinate of a general that he’s following. UGH this is a good chapter but at the same time frustrating because of Kagekatsu and the heroine, weh.

      Uesugi is drama personified LOL.
