SNB Mouri ~ Chapter 1.5 ~

Chapter 1: A Mysterious Chance Meeting

Motonari welcomed her readily to settle in the castle for the time being.

When she was brought by him to the shrine, where they first met, there was a monster she had never seen before…!

Chapter 1.5

[MOTONARI]: “There’s no need for you to acquire the sacred treasures, princess.”

When I turned towards the voice, there stood Motonari-san with a slightly troubled look.

My eyes widened at his words.

[YUZUKI]: “There’s no need for me to get the sacred treasures…? Motonari-san, what do you mean?”

[MOTONARI]: “You see—“

[MOTOHARU]: “To put it simply, it wouldn’t be a good idea for you to go walking around.”

[MOTOHARU]: “Because you don’t know anything about Shinga.”

[MOTOHARU]: “Motonari-sama is telling you not to expose yourself to danger for the sake of obtaining a sacred treasure.”

[MOTONARI]: “Yes, as Motoharu has said, there is danger in searching for the sacred treasures.”

[MOTONARI]: “… However, princess, if you are that desperate then we will search for the sacred treasures in your stead.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh…!?”

[MOTOHARU]: “But, Motonari-sama, if we search for the sacred treasures thenthe possibility of clashing with other armies naturally increases.”

[MOTONARI]: “Indeed, and I intend to act discreetly so as not to alarm them. Therefore—“

Motonari-san smiled at me with a gentle expression.

[MOTONARI]: “Princess, you need not do anything. Just entrust this to us.”

[MOTONARI]: “If you wish to have the sacred treasures, then we will obtain them, and so I’d like for you to wait in this castle.”

[YUZUKI]: “I’d feel horrible leaving everything to you and the others, Motonari-san, and I can’t do that…!”

[MOTONARI]: “I am grateful for your feelings, however… still, I cannot let you accompany us.”

[MOTONARI]: “Because the sacred treasures may be the one and only way to reach Himemiko, the other armies must be unanimously aiming for them.”

[YUZUKI]: “Really?”

[MOTOHARU]: “Yeah, since if they are able to obtain Himemiko as a result then they will close in on uniting the country.”

[MOTONARI]: “In actuality, it appears that violent conflicts over the sacred treasures have started happening in each land. I cannot let you go to such dangerous places, princess.”

[MOTONARI]: “Thus, if you desire the sacred treasures then we will retrieve them. So, won’t you wait until then?”

[YUZUKI]: “But…”

I felt apologetic for involving Motonari-san and the others in a dangerous situation for my own goals and wasn’t able to nod to Motonari-san’s suggestion.

Maybe becasue he was unable to just watch me, Motonari-san suddenly gave a smile.

[MOTONARI]: “… I apologize for intruding.”

[YUZUKI]: “… Not at all. Even though your suggestion is for my sake… I’m sorry.”

[MOTONARI]: “Don’t be. Well then, I shall take my leave.”

[YUZUKI]: “Okay…”

Unable to say anything further to Motonari-san, I resumed my letter studies with Motoharu-san.

 

[TAKAKAGE]: “… Hmmm. So, that girl is looking for the sacred treasures.”

 

After finishing the miscellaneous work in the castle, I was told to take a break from Motoharu-san, and so I rested in one of the courtyards.

There—

[TAKAKAGE]: “Yo, are you taking a break? Good work today.”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah, Takakage-san.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “Your work looks hard. How is it? Have you gotten used to living here a little?”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes. Although I was scolded by Motoharu-san when I was cooking the rice…”

[YUZUKI]: “But I’ll work hard from here and become useful to everyone!”

[TAKAKAGE]: “Haha, you’re a good girl.”

I was a little embarrassed to be told that with a smile.

Takakage-san brought his lips to my ears and whispered softly.

[TAKAKAGE]: “I’ll tell such a good girl something nice.”

[YUZUKI]: “Something nice?”

[TAKAKAGE]: “… I know where a sacred treasure is.”

[YUZUKI]: “Wha, really!?”

[TAKAKAGE]: “Shh, you’re too loud.”

[YUZUKI]: “Sorry…”

[YUZUKI]: “So, where’s the sacred treasure?”

[TAKAKAGE]: “Don’t you think it’d be quicker to go there instead of me explaining with words?”

[YUZUKI]: “Eh? You mean it’s close…? Then—“

[TAKAKAGE]: “That’s how it is, so come out with me.”

The instant I was told that by Takakage-san the troubled look on Motonari-san earlier crossed my mind.

Motonari-san said he wanted me to wait.

[YUZUKI]: “… But I think I shouldn’t—“

[TAKAKAGE]: “You want the sacred treasure, don’t you?”

[YUZUKI]: “…!”

I wasn’t able to resist those words that seemed to put a pressure on me—

[YUZUKI]: (I’m sorry…)

And so, while apologizing in my mind, I was guided by Takakage-san towards the mountains where the sacred treasure was said to be.

      Hmm, he’s actually mean like this to everyone, especially Terumoto, so I think he’s just straight up a dick LOL. He doesn’t hide his vicious personality from anyone in Mouri |D.

      RIGHT? Though, to be fair, since Takakage is a commander under Motonari you’d think he would follow Motonari’s sentiments in being cordial to her (like Motoharu, Terumoto, and Takamoto). She doesn’t have any reason to expect him to have nefarious intentions :'(( although the bit where he says he knows where the sacred treasure is… that’s a HUGE flag considering if what he says is the truth then why is he withholding it from his general?

    I’m still alive … the reason I disappeared all this time was because I had to move, so I do not have to deal with my brother’s discomfort anymore. The downside is that I can not use your computer anymore, so I will not be able to comment so often, my computer works badly all the time, but I’m calmer and I can enjoy the chapters better because I used to read them and comment on them hiding

    I enjoyed all the chapters so far and we arrived at the part of Mouri, of which I know little, I only know that Takakage means problems, so I am very excited and waiting for the chapters, thanks for all your work.

      Oh, congratulations (?) on moving out but also that’ll take a while to adjust /o\ there’s no rush to comment on these or read them the moment they come out! These posts will always be here so I hope you let yourself get settled in more and not feel pressured at having to comment. Thank you for always taking the time to do so though!

    Don’t follow him, trust me. That’s why I really really hate him, even in card stories

    Thank you for your hard works…

      LOL I know I’m in the minority when I say I still love him even though he’s so high on my shit list. It’s really refreshing (?) to have a character like him where he’s so unrepentant about what a jerk he is and he’s not tsun :’)) he’s just straight up mean LOL.
