SNB Mouri ~ Chapter 2.3 ~

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 2.3

Several days passed after the incident with Takakage-san and I worked hard at the jobs that were given to me, while practicing the ones that I couldn’t do.

At the beginning I kept failing and I was often scolded, but—

Motoharu-san’s face, as he looked at the meal I cooked, had a rare, broad smile.

[MOTOHARU]: “… Well done. I have no objections about the taste either.”

[YUZUKI]: “Really!? Thank you…!”

[MOTOHARU]: “This is the result of your daily efforts. You’ve gotten much better at laundry and cleaning than before too.”

[MOTOHARU]: “It looks like it’ll be alright to leave more extensive jobs to you.”

[YUZUKI]: “Motoharu-san…! Yes, I’ll do my best! I want to be more and more helpful to everyone!”

[YUZUKI]: (I’m glad I worked hard… I have to clean things next now.)

 

Even though a pale, orange sunset started to appear, I didn’t want to waste time resting and so I cleaned the halls.

[TAKAKAGE]: “Uwah, just when I thought there was a dirty girl here, it was you.”

[YUZUKI]: “Takakage-san, that’s mean.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “That’s unexpected. I meant to imply that I’m seeing you properly though.”

[YUZUKI]: “If you wanted to say that I think there’s other ways to do it.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “It’s my way of expressing my affection, so accept it.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “If you can’t accept it, then I’ll have to make you nod your head using any means necessary.”

[YUZUKI]: “I understand! I understand it’s your expression of affection!”

[YUZUKI]: “So please don’t put your hand on your sword with such a happy look, it’s scary…!”

[TAKAKAGE]: “Hehe.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “Ah, I just remembered. There was something I had to tell you.”

[YUZUKI]: “What is it?”

[TAKAKAGE]: “Motonari-sama has summoned you. He’s in his room so go over.”

[YUZUKI]: (Motonari-san? What for…?)

[YUZUKI]: “Okay, I understand.”

 

[YUZUKI]: “Motonari-san, are you inside?”

[MOTONARI]: “Mm, I’m here. Come in.”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes, excuse me.”

[MOTONARI]: “I apologize for calling for you so suddenly. Won’t you take a seat there?”

[YUZUKI]: “Okay.”

As was pointed out to me, I sat in front of Motonari-san, facing him.

[MOTONARI]: “Now then, let us bring out the main topic. Regarding the matter of searching for the sacred treasures, won’t you join us?”

[YUZUKI]: “Can I…!? But why…?”

[MOTONARI]: “I’ve reconsidered that it is safer for you to come with us than to remain alone in the castle.”

[YUZUKI]: (Is Motonari-san saying this because he’s worried about how, before, I didn’t come back from the mountains…?)

[MOTONARI]: “Much more dangerous things may occur when you’re together with us, however…”

[MOTONARI]: “As long as you stay beside me, I will protect you immediately no matter what happens.”

[MOTONARI]: “Thus, be at ease and concentrate on searching for clues on Himemiko.”

[YUZUKI]: “Motonari-san… thank you so much!”

[MOTONARI]: “Mm… However, it is already late today, so we will move in earnest starting tomorrow.”

[YUZUKI]: “You’re right. Then, I’ll excuse myself here.”

I said that and stood up to leave this place, but Motonari-san called me to a stop as if he remembered something.

[MOTONARI]: “Ah, wait…”

[YUZUKI]: “…?”

Thinking he might have forgotten to tell me something, I turned back around and—

Motonari-san stroked my head gently with a soft smile.

[MOTONARI]: “If anything troubles you in the future, discuss it with me right away. Don’t feel as if you have to be reserved, alright?”

Hearing those words, I thought that Motonari-san was concerned about how I had been abandoned in the mountains.

[YUZUKI]: “Motonari-san… thank you so much…”

    I hate this manipulative bastard. I’m wary of Motonari, but at least he’s not as bad as Takakage???

    Motonari and Takakage also seem to be playing the good cop/bad cop here….

      HAHA. I feel like I trust Takakage more than Motonari because Takakage is open with his hostility and cruelty, but Motonari just makes you think he’s scheming something still. Especially, like you pointed out, this very convenient good cop/bad cop impression they have going on here. Takakage bullying the heroine extremely and then Motonari swooping in to show her gentleness to make her more loyal to Motonari, aka. Mouri– (I think this is just my paranoia though because Motonari, for all intents and purposes so far, is constantly described as being kind and peaceful LOL).

      I actually think I’d get along with Takakage in a snarky way |D he’d be the person (friend?) you’d meet on the street and be like “Yo, bitch, what’s up”. He was just so mean from the outset that I can’t take any of his insults seriously LOL especially when he’s admitted that he likes to bully the MC for her reaction.

      Hmm, he and the heroine end up with a pretty funny/interesting relationship imo. She learns how to let his insults roll off her back and kind of quips back, but usually he gets the upper hand in bullying her and he’s still very mean but not like… life-threateningly mean like he was at the beginning? LOL. I like him because he’s such a unique character in an otome game (basically someone who doesn’t end up really liking the heroine? Or like, he can tolerate her but he definitely has that cruelty to him still).
