Chapter 1: A Long Way to Go

Forming an alliance and aiming for Mouri territory, Kenshin and the others obtained information on how the preceding alliance of Oda, Toyotomi, and Date were arranging a counter attack.

As the outbreak of a war approached, each and every person’s resolution is questioned…

Chapter 1.1

Kenshin-san and the others spurred on their horses to chase after the Oda army, Toyotomi army, and Date army, who were heading towards Mouri territory.

Following them in a row like that was the Takeda army and Sanada army—

Last night, Kagekatsu-kun and the others assembled in the main hall.

 

[KENSHIN]: “The fact of the matter for gathering everyone here is because a letter arrived at this time from the Takeda army.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Kenshin-sama… by some chance, is that letter…”

[KENSHIN]: “Mm… regarding the alliance I informed everyone on, we will be convening with them tomorrow morning.”

[KAGEKATSU]: “…!”

[YUZUKI]: (Tomorrow morning… that’s so sudden…)

[KANETSUGU]: “Geez, what’re you looking surprised for. As if a battle would start suddenly.”

[YUZUKI]: “I guess so, but…”

Maybe he sensed my worries, because Kagemochi-san smiled gently at me.

[KAGEMOCHI]: “You must be uneasy, but we’ll be with you so everything will be alright.”

[YUZUKI]: “Right…”

[KENSHIN]: “I am trusting everyone to make preparations for hostilities at any time.”

[THE THREE]: “Understood.”

[KAGEKATSU]: “……”

Everyone started to leave the place, but when I got up to follow them I was called to a stop by Kenshin-san.

[KENSHIN]: “May I have some time?”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes, what is it?”

[KENSHIN]: “I made a promise. That I believe in you and would protect you—“

[KENSHIN]: “However, the Oda army, Toyotomi army… and the Date army awaits us in the future.”

[KENSHIN]: “It may become a violent war… Nevertheless, will you come together with us?”

[YUZUKI]: “Kenshin-san… I’ve already decided.”

[YUZUKI]: “I trust in you, Kenshin-san, and everyone else. Besides, I also want to be of help to everyone.”

[YUZUKI]: “So, please let me go together with you.”

[KENSHIN]: “… I understand. You have my gratitude.”

I would follow them firmly to the end. I swore that again in my chest while staring at Kenshin-san’s eyes.

I returned to my room and, while I was thinking hard, Imari-kun peered at my face in concern.

[IMARI]: “… What’s wrong?”

[YUZUKI]: “Imari-kun, I’m wondering if there’s anything I can do right now.”

[IMARI]: “I see!… How about doing something that’ll cheer everyone up?”

[YUZUKI]: “Cheer everyone up…”

[YUZUKI]: (Like something to eat? Ah, how about rice balls… They might be happy if I bring them out when everyone’s tired.)

[YUZUKI]: “Imari-kun, I’m going to the kitchen!”

[IMARI]: “Huh, what’re you going to do? I’ll help too!”

I decided to make rice balls and quickly went to the kitchen with Imari-kun.

[YUZUKI]: (I hope everyone’ll be happy—)

 

In the dim light, before the sun rose, everyone gathered with tense expressions.

[KENSHIN]: “You will ride in front of me.”

[YUZUKI]: “O-okay!”

After I got on the horse, Kenshin-san looked around at the faces gathered and quietly opened his mouth.

[KENSHIN]: “The Uesugi army will be joining with the Takeda army and Sanada army from here. The other armies will have started to move already.”

[KAGEKATSU]: “By the other armies, do you mean… the Oda army…?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “That’s right. The Oda army, Toyotomi army… and the Date army. Our destination is the same after all.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “We are in the situation of chasing the three armies, so it wouldn’t be strange if something were to happen.”

[KAGEIE]: “Don’t be so worried, I’ll handle it somehow! Haha!”

Hearing Kageie-san’s laughter, it felt like everyone’s feelings also became positive.

Following up with that atmosphere Kenshin-san declared in a strong voice.

[KENSHIN]: “Now, we depart!”

 

After continuing on a mountain path for a while, I heard a familiar voice.

Even though it was dark, I knew who it was immediately from the voice.

[SHINGEN]: “Haha, I’ve been waiting! Kenshin!”

[???]: “The group is gathered with this, huh. Let’s head out immediately.”

[YUZUKI]: (Who’s that…? He’s with Shingen-san though…)

[KENSHIN]: “Shingen and Sanada Yukimura, I see.”

[YUZUKI]: (So that’s Sanada’s general, Sanada Yukimura-san—)

    im nervous because something might happen again. and this is kenshin’s route. i feel he was curse in his own route. like there’s going to be drama again and he’s being tested again. it is as if they’re trying to break him. so pls yuzuki do me a favor and dont do some dumb stuff like jumping off a cliff.

    [YUZUKI]: (So that’s Sanada’s general, Sanada Yukimura-san—)

        In Uesugi route though Hanbee would be more likely to push her off the cliff– LOL. And yup this is her first time seeing the Sanada army since they just dealt with Takeda and Date in the previous battle IIRC.
