SNB Nobuharu ~ 5* Making a Smile Bloom ~

Posted on Updated on

The Beautifully Blooming Smile

(Thank you to Scarlett for the commission!)

As I walked back to my own room after finishing training like usual, Yuzuki’s figure entered my eyes.

Yuzuki was in the corner of the garden, quietly working while humming.

[NOBUHARU]: “You look like you’re enjoying yourself quite a bit. What are you doing?”

For an instant she showed surprise when I softly called out to her from behind but, upon seeing me, she showed a gentle smile.

[YUZUKI]: “Nobuharu-san, look.”

Saying that, Yuzuki pointed to a flower with a large bulb.

[YUZUKI]: “I think it’ll flower after a few more days.”

[NOBUHARU]: “Oh? You grew it?”

[YUZUKI]: “Yep!”

Yuzuki nodded happily while looking at all the colorful flowers.

[YUZUKI]: “I’ve raised them well up to this point, but I can’t drop my guard yet.”

[NOBUHARU]: “… What do you mean by that?”

[YUZUKI]: “Flowers are very sensitive and if you don’t remove weeds or pull out withered flowers then they won’t be able to reach nutrients.”

[NOBUHARU]: “Hrm…”

[YUZUKI]: “… It takes time and effort but because of that you get attached.”

[YUZUKI]: “If you raise them carefully then beautiful flowers will bloom.”

[NOBUHARU]: “… You love flowers, don’t you.”

Yuzuki nodded and showed a smile that was as bright as the sun.

[NOBUHARU]: “Don’t over do it and take breaks too.”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes, but before that I need to water the flowers.”

I watched affectionately as Yuzuki took care of the flowers again and quietly left the place so as not to disturb her work.

[NOBUHARU]: “Flowers, huh…”


[NOBUHARU]: “Hrm, what do I do…”

I was at a loss as to whether I should hand over a certain thing I bought from a peddler in town.

[NOBUHARU]: (I’ve come all the way to the front of her room. I guess I should just hand it over…)

At that moment, the screen slid open all of a sudden.

[NOBUHARU]: “…!”

[YUZUKI]: “Nobuharu-san…!? What’s the matter?”

[NOBUHARU]: “The same goes for you. You’re leaving your room at this time…”

[YUZUKI]: “The moon tonight is beautiful so I thought I’d look at it once more before sleeping.”

[YUZUKI]: “Nobuharu-san, why are you here…?”

[NOBUHARU]: “Erm, you see…”

I showed Yuzuki what I held in my hand.

[YUZUKI]: “This…”

[YUZUKI]: “Is it possibly flower seeds?”

[NOBUHARU]: “Yeah… I thought I’d gift you flowers today and went to town to buy them.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh…?”

[NOBUHARU]: “Then, um… a peddler had a very cute and unusually-shaped flower, so they suggested I try gifting that.”

[NOBUHARU]: “So, I wanted to buy that flower however what was handed over wasn’t the flower but flower seeds… That’s how it went.”

Yuzuki stayed quiet and watched me as I smiled wryly.

[NOBUHARU]: “Sorry, it became an unromantic present.”

[YUZUKI]: “… Nobuharu-san.”

[YUZUKI]: “I’m happy…”

[NOBUHARU]: “Happy…?”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes! Really happy!”

Yuzuki took one of the seeds from my hand and showed a broad smile.

[YUZUKI]: “It’s this late but, if you don’t mind, why don’t we plant them together?”

[YUZUKI]: “I can’t wait to see what kind of flower blooms in the future.”

[NOBUHARU]: “Yeah, you’re right.”

Digging up the dirt, we quietly planted the seeds.

[YUZUKI]: “This will be alright.”

The seeds were gently covered with dirt and then, at the end, given some light water.

[YUZUKI]: “Ah… your hands are dirtied.”

Yuzuki wetted a hand towel in the bucket of water and tenderly wiped my hands, dirtied with dirt.

[NOBUHARU]: “Hey, your towel is going to get dirty.”

[YUZUKI]: “I don’t mind. You gave me such lovely flower seeds, so let me do this much.”

Yuzuki continued to carefully wipe my hands.

[YUZUKI]: “Nobuharu-san, your hands are really large, huh.”

[NOBUHARU]: “… Are they?”

[YUZUKI]: “Look, there’s this much difference.”

Yuzuki matched her own palm to mine and grinned.

[YUZUKI]: “Nobuharu-san…”

[YUZUKI]: “Would you raise these flowers together with me?”

[NOBUHARU]: “Of course.”

[YUZUKI]: “… Thank you.”

Yuzuki gave a soft smile.

In her large eyes the moonlight was faintly reflected and it glimmered a pale white.

[NOBUHARU]: “… Flowers are beautiful, but your smile is much more beautiful.”

[YUZUKI]: “Eh…?”

Yuzuki’s cheeks turned a slight red and she looked down as if in embarrassment.

[NOBUHARU]: “I’m praising you as beautiful, so please don’t look down.”

[YUZUKI]: “… Okay.”

I held Yuzuki’s hand, entwining our fingers, and she too held my hand back in the same way.

I brought myself closer to her face, as if being sucked into those shining eyes.


[NOBUHARU]: (The two of us will be sure to see this flower bloom beautifully.)

Quietly our lips separated and I tenderly pulled Yuzuki, whose eyelashes were lowered shyly, into me—

    Oh I see, that’s why he has that kind of smile (not the awaked one). Cupid strikes my heart again for Nobunaga 😚

        LOL was that really auto-correct or a Freudian slip? ;)) Hahaha, jkjk. Nobuharu has a really cute smile. He really just smiles as openly as he can.

    Oh my word!!!
    Oh if you could only hear the hesitance in his voice! It was all sulky and worried when he was giving her the seeds. There’s something about a big manly man getting all awkward and meek for a moment that shoots me in the heart, like only the mc will know this side of him and its precious!
    This kiss
    The handholding
    The compliments
    Can I have one irl please? Lol

    Thank you so so much for this! Makes my heart soar!

      Ooh, haha, it’s really sweet how Nobuharu’s voice turns so soft whenever he’s talking to the heroine, compared to how level his voice is with the others or like loud and confident against enemies. I sort of wonder about their age gap now because he’s the oldest one in Takeda and he really gives off that mature and calm atmosphere of someone really confident and settled with their life.

      LOL he’s ticking off everything on your list, huh. You’re welcome and thank you again for the commission!!

    I came back~

    Nobuharu-san.. *my cheeks is warmer for real*
    But I really wonder, since Shingen is already tall enough and Nobuharu-san is taller than Shingen, how big is his hands?

    Thank you for your hard works, and also thank you for the commission…!!

      Just because you’re tall doesn’t automatically mean you’ll have big hands |D you should check his d— SORRY SORRY. I do think Nobuharu is taller and broader than Shingen though, hm.

    Waaaa!!! It’s so beautiful! Thanks for sharing, and thanks to the person who commissioned it.
    I knew Nobuharu was a romantic! I’m totally in love with him. =3
    (Ehem… I mean, he is still in second place after Shingen)
    (But I think Shingen should be worried.) ;-)

      Ilinox responded:

      He’s really just a big teddy bear, ahhhh!! Hahah, we’ll be getting some more Shingen soon when the Takeda army stories come up so !!

    damn his cg. too handsome.

    [NOBUHARU]: “… Flowers are beautiful, but your smile is much more beautiful.”

    nobuharu can be a poet

    [NOBUHARU]: “I’m praising you as beautiful, so please don’t look down.”
    Quietly our lips separated and I tenderly pulled Yuzuki, whose eyelashes were lowered shyly, into me—

    damn my heart.

    i feel like he’s also like shingen. so gentle and he can be a husband material.

      LOL Nobuharu’s romantic sentences are a bit plain, but that’s probably what makes them so sweet. He’s not good at flowery words, so his blunt statements are cuter and more sincere ;w;

      Oh, very true about him and Shingen. He seems calmer than Shingen’s fieriness but then again Shingen is younger than Nobuharu.
