Chapter 2: In These Eventful and Critical Times

The war began at last. In the middle of the coalitions clashing, Kenshin confronted Nobunaga.

In a tense atmosphere, a battle unfolded between the two. However, bad news was brought there…

Chapter 2.1

[KENSHIN]: “I see… Sanada Nobuyuki did that…”

[YUKIMURA]: “Yeah… He said he wouldn’t listen to me.”

Yukimura’s face twisted as if saying it was his own fault that Nobuyuki disappeared.

[KENSHIN]: “… Have you conveyed this to Shingen?”

[YUKIMURA]: “No, not yet… I’m going to go and tell him after this—“

Yukimura bowed his head lightly and left the spot.

 

[YUZUKI]: “—Okay, is this everything?”

[KAGEKATSU]: “Mm, it’s enough. Thank you for helping…”

[YUZUKI]: (Now we just need to wait for Kenshin-san to come back—)

[KAGEIE]: “… Mrm? It’s noisy over at the Sanada army. Did something happen?”

[KANETSUGU]: “Come to think of it, they’ve been restless since earlier. I wonder what happened.”

[KENSHIN]: “Have preparations been arranged?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Yes, Kenshin-sama. Preparations here have been made.”

[KENSHIN]: “There is something I must tell everyone. It concerns the Sanada army—“

[KENSHIN]: “Sanada Nobuyuki appears to have broken off.”

[YUZUKI]: “Wha…”

[KAGEKATSU]: “Broken off… What exactly happened…”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “I would like to think it was just something but… looking at their state, that doesn’t seem to be the case.”

[KAGEIE]: “But what’s going to happen in the upcoming war?”

[KANETSUGU]: “We can’t measure the discomposure in the Sanada army that has lost their second-in-command…”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “That’s true… I hope we can close the hole he let out.”

[KENSHIN]: “I believe Sanada Yukimura will settle that solidly there.”

[KENSHIN]: “If he cannot then that is as far as he goes.”

[YUZUKI]: (No way… will Yukimura-san and the others be okay…?)

As I worried over Yukimura-san and the others Kanetsugu-san peered at my face.

[YUZUKI]: “K-Kanetsugu-san…?”

[KANETSUGU]: “What’re you doing with that look? Even without your concern, those guys will be fine.”

[YUZUKI]: “R-right…”

[KAGEKATSU]: “We need to think about ourselves too…”

[YUZUKI]: “Mm…”

[YUZUKI]: (That’s right… I need to concentrate on us right now—)

Upon my feelings becoming settled, Kenshin-san opened his mouth with a calm appearance.

[KENSHIN]: “No matter what happens with the Sanada army, it does not change what we must do now—“

[KENSHIN]: “And that is to defeat the enemy in front of us.”

Everyone gave a large nod at Kenshin-san’s strong gaze and words.

Told by Kenshin-san to get even just a little rest for tomorrow, I was lying down with Imari-kun.

[YUZUKI]: “Hey, Imari-kun…”

[IMARI]: “Yes, what is it?”

[YUZUKI]: “You see… I don’t want you to experience any danger, Imari-kun.”

[YUZUKI]: “So… I’d like you to run away before the battle starts.”

[IMARI]: “!? T-that’s…”

[YUZUKI]: “If you get involved in the war, you might get hurt, right?”

[YUZUKI]: “I don’t want to see you get hurt, Imari-kun, so…”

[IMARI]: “That’s the same for me towards you! So I’ll also—“

[YUZUKI]: “You can’t. Besides, Imari-kun, you have an important duty, right?”

[IMARI]: “My duty…”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes. You need to find Himemiko-sama’s clues.”

[YUZUKI]: “Of course, I want to stay together with you too, Imari-kun, but— I have another big responsibility, which is to be of help to Kenshin-san and the others.”

[YUZUKI]: “I’m scared of the war, but… I’ve already made my decision.”

[IMARI]: “I… see.”

[IMARI]: “… I understand. I’ll go off separately tomorrow.”

[IMARI]: “I’ll go and search for Himemiko-sama’s clues in Mouri territory while all the commanders are concentrating on the war!”

[YUZUKI]: “Okay. But don’t push yourself too hard and take care to do your best not to get caught up in the war.”

[IMARI]: “Yes! You be careful too.”

After encouraging each other like that, we quietly parted ways the following morning.

      LOL pretty much! I don’t think Uesugi route has had much interactions with Sanada people at all and, in fact, given how close Sanada is to Takeda I’m sure none of the Uesugi people really like them |D;;.

    Aww! I loved Imari-kun in this chapter.
    But it is true that having the Mouri occupied with the war is a good opportunity to go looking for clues.

      Imari is the perfect spy and he should honestly be used more for that role— jkjk.

      This is just a temporary alliance |D Uesugi isn’t actually friendly with Takeda and Sanada, especially since they both marched to attack him that one time… and they only stopped because news came about Toyotomi and Oda’s alliance.
