SNB Uesugi ~ 光盟 Chapter 1.3 ~

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 1.3

After Kenshin-san finished eating the rice balls I returned a step ahead of him to the others.

[IMARI]: “Everyone ate them happily.”

[YUZUKI]: “Yeah! I’m glad I did my best to make rice balls.”

I naturally broke into a grin, happy at being of use to everyone.

[YUZUKI]: (I want to help everyone out more.)

As I thought about whether there was anything I could do I saw Kenshin-san returning this way.

[YUZUKI]: “Ah, Kenshin-sa—“

The moment I tried calling out to him though a single messenger ran over to Kenshin-san with a flustered appearance.

[YUZUKI]: (They’re in such a hurry I wonder what happened…)

After they whispered into Kenshin-san’s ears the messenger left the spot immediately.

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Kenshin-sama, is something the matter?”

[KENSHIN]: “… It appears the allied forces of Oda, Toyotomi, and Date are preparing to counter attack us. Furthermore, they seem to be arranged already.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “As we thought, it has become like this…”

[KENSHIN]: “Mm. On this matter, there was a messenger from Shingen about holding a war council.”

[KENSHIN]: “I will head to this war council. Command in this meantime will be entrusted to you, Kagemochi.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Acknowledged. I will proceed with preparations to depart for the front.”

 

In preparation for the battle, everyone took turns resting to relieve even a little fatigue, but—

[YUZUKI]: (I was told to sleep so I could preserve my energy, but I can’t sleep. What do I do.)

[KANETSUGU]: “Hey, you haven’t slept yet? Rest when it’s time to rest.”

[YUZUKI]: “Kanetsugu-san… I’m sorry. I can’t sleep for some reason…”

[KANETSUGU]: “… Worried?”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes… but—“

[YUZUKI]: (Maybe I’ll be told by Kanetsugu-san that I’m a burden again…)

[YUZUKI]: “Kanetsugu…-san…?”

[KANETSUGU]: “Don’t look like that. We’re with you.”

[KANETSUGU]: “Besides, Kenshin-sama said it too, didn’t he? That the Uesugi army would protect you.”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes.”

[KANETSUGU]: “… Well, above all, I’m with you.”

[KANETSUGU]: “I’ll definitely protect you.”

[YUZUKI]: “Kanetsugu-san…”

[KANETSUGU]: “So, just be normal.”

Saying that, Kanetsugu-san ruffled my hair.

[YUZUKI]: “Kanetsugu-san! If you do that my hair’ll—“

[KANETSUGU]: “This degree is fine.”

[YUZUKI]: (My hair’s a complete mess…)

[YUZUKI]: (But it’s like my nervousness from before was a lie… I have to thank Kanetsugu-san—)

Now that I was able to calm my feelings, I suddenly looked up at the sky and a full starry sky spread out.

[YUZUKI]: “Wow! So pretty!”

[KANETSUGU]: “Did you just notice now?”

[YUZUKI]: “I haven’t really had the time to look up…”

[KANETSUGU]: “Don’t just keep looking down; if you don’t look up you’ll hit your head.”

[YUZUKI]: “Haha…”

[KANETSUGU]: “Why’re you laughing…”

[YUZUKI]: “Thanks to you, Kanetsugu-san, I’ve managed to get my energy back somehow. Thank you.”

[KANETSUGU]: “… Mm.”

Then we heard a voice from behind us.

[???]: “What are you two doing…?”

[YUZUKI]: “This voice… Kagekatsu-kun?”

[KANETSUGU]: “We’re looking at the stars. You wanna watch them together too?”

[KAGEKATSU]: “Yes…”

[YUZUKI]: “That reminds me, it’s said if you wish on a shooting star three times it’ll be granted.”

[KAGEKATSU]: “… Really?”

[KANETSUGU]: “That’s just a superstition—“

The instant Kanetsugu-san said that.

[YUZUKI]: “Ah! A shooting star!”

[YUZUKI]: (I wonder if I can make it…)

Before it disappeared I chanted my wish in my heart. When I looked beside me, Kanetsugu-san had closed his eyes.

[YUZUKI]: “… Kanetsugu-san, did you possibly make a wish too?”

[KANETSUGU]: “Wouldn’t hurt to do so.”

[YUZUKI]: “What did you wish for? I—“

[KANETSUGU]: “Hey, isn’t it that if you speak your wish the effects will be lost?”

[YUZUKI]: “Oh right, but…”

[YUZUKI]: (He’s the one who said it was a superstition… I wonder if Kanetsugu-san had something he wants granted too.)

[KANETSUGU]: “… I hope your wish is granted.”

I turned my head to those murmured words and saw Kanetsugu-san’s profile as he looked up at the sky.

I quietly nodded and then gazed at the countless stars.

[YUZUKI]: (I’ll keep silent about my wish too…)

[YUZUKI]: (Because I want this time to continue forever—)

    What a beautiful image!
    But seriously, what’s up with the alien abductions in this game???
    I’m okay as long as the aliens don’t try to change Shingen.
    ;-)

      HAHA I think Kanetsugu has been warming up to her a lot during the course of the main story though |D he still has his prickly sides and isn’t honest about his feelings, but he deres much faster than he did at the beginning.

    that cg of Kanetsugu-san ruffling yuzuki’s hair… he looks gentle. unlike the other guys in the usuegi army, i cant see myself liking/loving him. maybe its because he keeps on reprimanding me.

    Kagekatsu why did he interrupt? i wanted to see if there’s any other side of Kanetsugu that i can fell in love with.

    [KANETSUGU]: “That’s just a superstition—“
    [KANETSUGU]: “Wouldn’t hurt to do so.”
    [KANETSUGU]: “Hey, isn’t it that if you speak your wish the effects will be lost?”

    maybe he wish that usuegi unites shinga.

      I even included a soft Kanetsugu smiling sprite to accompany the CG, haha, because it’s so rare with this guy. He’s been growing on me ever since we encountered people like Takakage LOL and now that Kanetsugu has calmed down and accepted the heroine.
