Chapter 2: Walking on Eggshells

Shingen and the others advanced while cutting down the enemy soldiers. Exchanging a bout with Hideyoshi and the others, they moved forward aiming to join up with the forces of their allies.

There the figure of a single man appeared…

Chapter 2.1

[MASAKAGE]: “Nobuyuki’s gone!?”

Everyone was disturbed by the information that was conveyed from Yukimura-san.

[SHINGEN]: “What exactly does that mean?”

[YUKIMURA]: “Just as it sounds. After I talked about my thoughts for the future, he said he wouldn’t follow me and then disappeared.”

.[MASANOBU]: “To think Nobuyuki would leave Sanada…”

[NOBUHARU]: “I thought he held pride as a commander of the Sanada army…”

[YUZUKI]: (Certainly, Nobuyuki-san looked like someone who cherished the Sanada army…)

[MASAKAGE]: “He isn’t just gone for a moment or anything?”

[YUKIMURA]: “… No, I was told clearly that he wouldn’t obey me.”

[MASATOYO]: “No way…”

[SHINGEN]: “……”

[YUKIMURA]: “We should have been together forever…”

[YUKIMURA]: “This is the first time I can’t understand my brother’s thoughts…”

Yukimura-san’s complexion was terribly pale and when Masatoyo-san called out to him in concern he nodded without energy.

[YUKIMURA]: “… I’m fine. As a general, I can’t let myself be shaken by something like this.”

Yukimura-san said that, gritting his teeth, and then after a short period he looked forward with strong eyes.

[YUKIMURA]: “If I lose my composure, it’ll affect the morale of the soldiers.”

[MASAKAGE]: “There’s no time before the war, so we’ll look for him too.”

[YUKIMURA]: “No, I can’t involve you in Sanada’s problem.”

[SHINGEN]: “… Well, Nobuyuki isn’t a kid either. If he personally left then it means he has that strong of a will.”

[SHINGEN]: “I’m sure even if we tried to convince him, his mind won’t waver.”

[YUKIMURA]: “I think so too… I’m certain my voice won’t reach my brother currently.”

[SHINGEN]: “Don’t worry about the war. We’ll assist with the hole Nobuyuki left.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Ah, thanks. Sorry about this right before the war.”

Saying this, Yukimura-san left slowly towards the Sanada army’s camp site.

[YUZUKI]: (Yukimura-san… I hope he’ll be okay.)

[SHINGEN]: “… Everyone, I know you’re worried but get even a little rest for tomorrow.”

 

[YUZUKI]: (… I need to rest early, but I’m wide awake.)

When I walked around to relax myself a nearby bush shook and rustled before Imari-kun’s face popped out all of a sudden.

[YUZUKI]: “Imari-kun, you’re safe!”

[IMARI]: “Yes! I’m glad you’re safe too!”

[IMARI]: “Um… there’s a really heavy atmosphere. Did something happen…?”

[YUZUKI]: “Actually…”

I explained the events up to now in order and Imari-kun’s eyes widened with shock.

[IMARI]: “Wha!? There’s going to be a big war from here?”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes… it looks like the start is going to be tomorrow.”

[IMARI]: “I want to stay beside you too, but… I can’t be found by the commanders.”

[YUZUKI]: “I’ll be okay. This place is dangerous, so you have to run, Imari-kun.”

Imari-kun lowered his head, looking conflicted for a moment, but after a while he turned eyes filled with determination to me.

[IMARI]: “Then, while the commanders are distracted by the war, I’ll look for information on Himemiko-sama!”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes, please!”

After I saw off Imari-kun, who disappeared into the bushes, I was finally able to sleep.

 

Even when it was the next morning, Nobuyuki-san didn’t return, and the Sanada army was lacking their usual energy.

[MASAKAGE]: “… I wonder where Nobuyuki went.”

[MASAKAGE]: “It can’t be that he really abandoned Sanada…?”

[MASANOBU]: “I know you’re curious, but you can’t let yourself be influenced by that forever.”

[NOBUHARU]: “Mm, after all this is the critical moment.”

[YUZUKI]: (… The war is starting at last.)

[SHINGEN]: “… Looks like it’s about time. Alright, everyone let’s go!”

Under Shingen-san’s orders, the Takeda army began to march.

    [YUKIMURA]: “We should have been together forever…”

    i find it weird. i have a brother and this thinking “together forever” didnt cross my mind. maybe its because im going to get married someday and we’re going to separate ways anyway.

    maybe yukimura said that because in sanada family is family.

      Or because all members of the clan, married or not, lived together anyway…

        Mhm, I was just going to say that. Back in those times, I don’t think people moved very far away from towns, so families probably lived very closely together. It’s probably even more important for a large clan that essentially rules their land to be close too because of succession rights and whatnot, etc. So, Yukimura probably just meant Nobuyuki was supposed to be with him every step of the way in uniting the country, bringing peace to everyone, etc etc.
