Chapter 2: Hostilities

The war of allied armies began at last—

Hideyoshi and the others readied their preparations to intercept the Takeda army. However, something unexpected interrupted…?

Chapter 2.1

[YUZUKI]: “Hideyoshi-san is late, isn’t he. I wonder if the war meeting is still going on…?”

[HANBEE]: “Hmmm, well the contents are what they are.”

Sanada Nobuyuki-san had broke off from the Sanada army and joined the Oda army— a war meeting regarding that was underway in the Oda camp.

Apart from Hideyoshi-san, who was participating in the meeting, Kanbee-san and Toshiie-san were on guard beside the Oda army’s main camp as bodyguards just in case.

[YUZUKI]: (… I wonder what exactly they’re talking about?)

 

[HIDEYOSHI]: “—Ooh. So, you’re saying you really split with Sanada Yukimura, right?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Correct.”

[MASAMUNE]: “…… Heh.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “If he claims a meritorious deed in tomorrow’s battle then Nobuyuki will officially be welcomed into my army.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Nobunaga-sama, you’re a real oddball. Do your best to take care so that you don’t get betrayed again, okay?”

[RANMARU]: “Wha! How dare you play innocent…!”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Enough. Drop your words… We’re continuing with the main subject.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: (Nobuyuki explained that he broke off because he ran out of patience with Yukimura’s naive thoughts, but…)

He couldn’t toss out the possibility that Nobuyuki was a spy sent by Takeda, Uesugi, and Sanada.

[HIDEYOSHI]: (I also wonder how serious Nobunaga is being… Either way, there’s gonna be an effect on tomorrow’s battle. Once I go back, I guess I’ll have another strategy meeting with everyone.)

 

[YUZUKI]: “Fuah…”

[HANBEE]: “Sleepy?”

[YUZUKI]: “I’m sorry, Hanbee-kun! I can’t believe I yawned…”

[HANBEE]: “Uh-uh, it’s reasonable~. There’ll be a strategy meeting after Hideyoshi-sama comes back, so you should sleep first.”

[YUZUKI]: “But… for me to be the only one to sleep when everyone’s still working…”

[HANBEE]: “The battle’s going to start come morning, so resting to prepare for that is an important job, you know?”

[YUZUKI]: (… Compared to everyone I don’t have any endurance. If I push myself here and then drag everyone down tomorrow that’ll be too horrrible of a sight…)

[YUZUKI]: “Alright. Then I’m going to sleep first for tomorrow.”

[HANBEE]: “Mm, good night~.”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes, good night.”

I left Hanbee-kun and started walking towards the sleeping area everyone prepared in advance.

[YUZUKI]: (Oh, I might be able to talk to Imari-kun who has been hiding now. I need to tell him about this situation…!)

 

Holding the teakettle so that no one would notice, I came to a place a little way away from the sleeping area.

[YUZUKI]: (I should be okay here, right…?)

[YUZUKI]: “Imari-kun, it’s okay to come out.”

[IMARI]: “Puwah! Finally, we can talk!”

[YUZUKI]: “Sorry, I’ve had you hide in my luggage all this time.”

[IMARI]: “Please don’t apologize for that! You aren’t at fault.”

[YUZUKI]: “Thank you. Um, Imari-kun, there’s something I want to tell you—“

 

[IMARI]: “Wha! Another allied force is approaching!?”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes. And we’re going to counterattack them before entering Mouri lands.”

[YUZUKI]: “So… this place might become a battlefield too. Imari-kun, you need to run far away right now so that you don’t get involved.”

[IMARI]: “Whaa!? I can’t do something like leaving you here and running away alone!”

[YUZUKI]: “I’ll be okay. I’m together with Hideyoshi-san and the others after all.”

[IMARI]: “But… but…”

I gently petted Imari-kun who seemed unbearably concerned.

[YUZUKI]: “Thank you for worrying. I really appreciate your feelings, Imari-kun.”

[IMARI]: “……”

[YUZUKI]: “What’s wrong?”

[IMARI]: “… I’ve decided. I’m going to head to Mouri territory first and collect information!”

[IMARI]: “I’m a little afraid to go alone but you’re doing your best, so I want to do my best together too.”

[YUZUKI]: “Imari-kun… Okay, but don’t push yourself too hard.”

[IMARI]: “Yes! You too, please be safe. We’ll definitely meet again!”

[YUZUKI]: “Yep!”

I firmly grabbed back the small hand that was held out. And then I watched as Imari-kun left.

[YUZUKI]: (First, we need to safely get through tomorrow. If it’s Hideyoshi-san and the others, I’m sure we’ll be okay!)

The sky was covered by the darkness of a deep night, but I told myself those words so that my heart would not become dark.

      HI-FIVE FELLOW TOYOTOMI-ER!! Aw, thank you so much and I’m just happy other people are enjoying SNB’s story too. Hideyoshi is just such a daredevil LOL probably the only one who can talk to Nobunaga like this constantly without being killed.

    [HIDEYOSHI]: “Nobunaga-sama, you’re a real oddball. Do your best to take care so that you don’t get betrayed again, okay?”

      That was such a zinger I’m never going to stop laughing at how nonchalantly he said that. Only Hideyoshi constantly gets away with sniping at Nobunaga like that.
