SNB Mouri ~ Chapter 2.2 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 2: A Melody of Plots

Although she went to a cave by the invitation of Takakage, who said he knew the whereabouts of a sacred treasure, she was met with an unexpected event.

In a predicament where yakuma could appear at any time, what she thought was…

Chapter 2.2

When I returned to my room, the maids brought a bucket with water and a towel to wipe the mud off my body.

Right after that plates full of dishes were carried over.

[YUZUKI]: (This reception is pretty much perfect…)

—After eating, Imari-kun rubbed his bulging stomach.

[IMARI]: “Fuah. For a second, I wondered what would happen to us, but I’m glad we returned safely!”

[YUZUKI]: “Me too.”

[YUZUKI]: (I’m really glad Motonari-san came looking for us…)

The moment we felt at ease the sliding screen opened with a sound.

[TAKAKAGE]: “Yo.”

[YUZUKI]: “Wah, Takakage-san!?”

[TAKAKAGE]: “Hey, why did you lie?”

[YUZUKI]: “Lie?”

[TAKAKAGE]: “When Terumoto asked what happened, you said some nonsense.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “You were set up by me and left behind in the mountains… you should have told the truth.”

[YUZUKI]: “It’s because… I didn’t want to.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “What’s with that? What do you mean?”

[YUZUKI]: “If I told the truth, I thought that’d cause trouble for Motonari-san.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “… Ohh, did the things I say stick in your mind?”

[YUZUKI]: “Well… if I said the truth then I believe Motonari-san will definitely act. But…”

[TAKAKAGE]: “Hmm. Your tone makes it sound like you’re quite confident in being appreciated by Motonari-sama.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “Maybe it’d be better to make you understand your position once more?”

[YUZUKI]: “……”

[TAKAKAGE]: “I’m a child of Mouri and, in the end, you’re an outsider.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “Even if you told the truth, as long as there’s no evidence, everyone won’t believe easily in your case, no?”

[YUZUKI]: “… That might be true.”

[YUZUKI]: “But weren’t you the one who said this, Takakage-san? That I was a bother if I acted only for myself.”

[YUZUKI]: “Meaning, you cherish everyone in Mouri to the point where you think it’s better if I weren’t here.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “… So what?”

[YUZUKI]: “So then I don’t want everyone to know about your actions even more, Takakage-san.”

[YUZUKI]: “Certainly, I thought it was cruel to be left behind and even now I’m hurt by that, but…”

[YUZUKI]: “I think it’s wrong to get back at you for that.”

[YUZUKI]: “—Because I respect your feelings for Mouri, Takakage-san.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “… That’s why you kept my actions a secret and made it sound like it was your own carelessness.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “… Ahahaha! You really are an idiot.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “To respect another’s feelings even at the expense of yourself— I can’t understand that.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “… But, thanks to that, I think I’ve found your good point.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh? What do you…”

The moment I thought Takakage-san smiled ominously he came close enough where his lips were almost touching my ear—

[TAKAKAGE]: “I think it’d be fun to bully you.”

[YUZUKI]: “—!”

[TAKAKAGE]: “That’s how it is, so I’m looking forward to the future.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “—Ah, I’m going to overlook things this time, but…”

[TAKAKAGE]: “If you do anything that disrespects Motonari-sama and is disadvantageous to Mouri then next time I won’t just leave you behind.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “I’ll kill you instantly, so don’t worry.”

The words left by Takakage-san were dangerous, but he went out of the room with an expression that was gentler than usual.

[TAKAKAGE]: “—Ah, Motonari-sama.”

[MOTONARI]: “So, her disappearance truly was because of your actions.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “Aah, you figured it out in the end.”

[MOTONARI]: “Mm. When Terumoto asked what happened, she was clearly acting strange.”

[MOTONARI]: “Moreover, just now when I passed in front of her room, I heard her conversation with you though it was in fragments.”

[MOTONARI]: “From those contents, it’s confirmed that she lied in order to protect you.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “… Hmm, I see.”

[MOTONARI]: “In addition, I was curious about your manner back there.”

[MOTONARI]: “And so, when I thought to check on you, I met Motoharu and Takamoto there. Along the way, they spoke about the stream of events.”

[MOTOHARU]: “Takakage, someone like you is really…!”

[TAKAMOTO]: “Now, now, calm down Motoharu. What Takakage did wasn’t nice at all, but he was also thinking about Mouri…”

[MOTOHARU]: “Even if that were the case, we can’t ignore the girl’s feelings at having been abandoned. Right, brother?”

[TAKAMOTO]: “Yes. Of course.”

[MOTONARI]: “Both of you, let’s stop there. If she hears she will be troubled.”

[MOTONARI]: “And Takakage.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “… If I am to be punished, I’ll accept it. So, what will it be? Water torture?”

[MOTONARI]: “No, it appears you have reflected on your own actions, thus I won’t give you a special punishment. However…”

[MOTONARI]: “The act of having done something to her itself must be punished. And it seems necessary that I explain this so that you will never do this again.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “Uwah, a lecture, I see. That’s the harshest punishment though.”

[MOTONARI]: “Now, Takakage, come to my room.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “Haa… understood.”

[TAKAMOTO]: “Aah… I wonder if Takakage will be alright…”

[MOTOHARU]: “Motonari-sama seemed very angry so, looking at that, it’ll go on all night.”

    From hatred to fear now T_T I don’t just hate him but I’m scared T_T

    I felt frightened when he slid the door and said something chilly like “Yo”. No! I will run away, I can’t keep myself facing him anymore. What a beast.

      Mouri’s route is now more like a horror movie with Takakage lurking around LOL.

    [TAKAKAGE]: “I think it’d be fun to bully you.”

    I understand respecting people’s feelings, but that doesn’t mean you can let them walk all over you. You should also teach them how to respect you. ಠ_ಠ
    With her personality, I wonder how she survives in the modern world. She’s practically the perfect prey for bullies. :/

      She might be one of the fortunate ones who picked up a really nice social circle that protects her :’)) because, yeah, otherwise I’m sure she’d just get eaten by bullies in school or something. Like you said, I think there’s a nice balance you can walk here with respecting his feelings and understanding where he’s coming from, but not letting that stop you from protecting yourself in tattling on him to Motonari because HELLO, SIR? You have a mad dog subordinate that might just snap and kill off the person you’ve taken under your protection! Tbh, Motonari lost points for me here because at least Nobunaga runs a tight enough ship that no one dares to counter his orders |D.

    Oh, just a sermon from daddy….. But I’m agree, that’s the harshest and at least he’s not a black sheep anymore…. Maybe? 😑

      What catches my attention is that Takakage suggests “water torture” at first LOL does that mean… they do that regularly? Or was he just being extremely sarcastic? Seems like a weird thing to bring up if that’s not already a punishment in place for most people in the army ;;;;.

    [TAKAKAGE]: “I think it’d be fun to bully you.”

    I reaaaally would have liked to punch him on his pretty nose.
    It would have been doubly funny because men his type don’t expect women to react like that.

    Of course, he may decide to kill me right after the punch…
    Still, it would have been worth it.

      Oh, and know we know he hate sermons… so we can bully him back, and without a single punch. =D

        LOL for sure! But Takakage also seems like the type that’ll easily escalate violence if you do that too :’)) so it’s like a game of seeing who gets angry enough to actually snap. My attitude for these guys is to just let their insults roll off my back and be like “Sure, I’m dumb. Cool story, bro” |D. Haha, I’d have noooooo shame in running to tattle on him to Motonari!

    Out of topic. Have opened iTunes (via my friend’s iPhone) and found Collar x Malice Character CDs, I think you should listening to all their songs (especially Yanagi and Shiraishi one), I somehow love it, even myself haven’t played the game

    Back to topic. Phew, I can relax a little because Motonari found Takakage’s fault in this chapter lololol

    Thank you for your hard works…

      Ilinox responded:

      I usually find that character CDs have spoilers in their lyrics for the characters or themes that I’d miss out on if I didn’t play the game/route, so I don’t like to touch those until I’ve played the game or come to understand the characters better /o\.

      I’m so glad that Motonari did or else I’d be super angry at the heroine for covering for Takakage without anyone the wiser, haha. But looks like everyone else is unimpressed too.

    Wow Mouri MC really can see through ppl ..past behind the actions of first meeting with Takakage. Not many people can do that in one glance.

      Ilinox responded:
      December 10, 2018 at 11:44

      Ever since they met, Takakage has been going on about “don’t harm Mouri” and clearly respecting Motonari with the suffix so I don’t think it’s too much of a stretch to guess that he really cherishes Mouri |D she’s really selfless still to defend him like that though. Just because he feels that way doesn’t mean he can take it out on her tbh especially when Motonari has placed some importance on her.

    im amazed yuzuki still talks to TAKAKAGE. i would have runaway or hide from him.

    [TAKAKAGE]: “I think it’d be fun to bully you.”
    [TAKAKAGE]: “That’s how it is, so I’m looking forward to the future.”

    bully me or kill me?

      Ilinox responded:
      December 10, 2018 at 11:45

      LOL you can’t show predators your fear or they’ll chase you down even more! But the MC is pretty great in this route :’)) she calls out Takakage and then ends up kinda snarking back at him in the future.

      It’s bullying first and then killing if you’re not useful or harm Mouri LOL.
