Chapter 3: The Radiance Which Answers Your Wish

On the battlefield, where the turmoil was at its most extreme, the general of the Mouri army suddenly appeared— Mouri Motonari. Motonari swung his blade and Katsuie suffered a grave wound. In order to save Katsuie, she tried to give him blood but…

Chapter 3.1

[NAGAHIDE]: “The Mouri army has withdrawn!?”

Having taken command of the main camp, Nagahide-san’s voice was rough at the facts told to him from a messenger.

[YUZUKI]: “That means Nobunaga-san and the others have driven the Mouri army into a disadvantage… right?”

[NAGAHIDE]: “No, it’s hard to think that from the reports I just received. What in the world—“

[RANMARU]: “Hurry! Over here quickly!”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah, Ranmaru-kun! Is everyone saf—!?”

The moment I tried to run over to the direction of the voice a blood-stained Katsuie-san was carried in.

[NAGAHIDE]: “Katsuie…!? Hey, Ranmaru, what the hell happened!”

[RANMARU]: “He was cut down by Mouri Motonari! We need to hurry and treat him—“

Although Katsuie-san was barely breathing his breaths were shallow and he was unconscious.

[YUZUKI]: (He’s really pale… at this rate, Katsuie-san will—)

[YUZUKI]: (Oh, I know! If I let him drink my blood then surely…!)

I looked around my surroundings and picked up a dagger that was in my sight. Then, pressing my fingertip to the blade, I made a cut.

[RANMARU]: “!? What are you doing—“

“Katsuie-san isn’t in a condition to drink my blood, so I can only have him drink it like this…!”

I pushed the blood that was welling up from my cut to Katsuie-san’s unconscious mouth.

[YUZUKI]: (… He’ll be saved with this, right?)

However, Katsuie-san’s pallor continued to be without blood and there was no signs of his wound closing.

[YUZUKI]: “W-why!? Why isn’t he healing…”

[YUZUKI]: (Maybe this serious of an injury needs a lot more blood…? In that case—!)

Nagahide-san grabbed my hand when I clenched it around the dagger again.

[NAGAHIDE]: “Enough! Even if you do anything further, you’ll just waste your blood.”

[YUZUKI]: “Let me go…! At this rate, Katsuie-san will—“

[NAGAHIDE]: “HE WON’T DIE! I absolutely won’t let him die…”

[YUZUKI]: “Nagahide-san…”

[NAGAHIDE]: “I’m going to get a move on Katsuie’s treatment. Ranmaru, look at this girl’s injury first.”

[RANMARU]: “I understand.”

After that, although Katsuie-san’s injury was closed up somehow, he remained unconscious.

It was determined that no further treatments could be done here and so we rushed to make preparations for a retreat—

[NAGAHIDE]: “It seems like the Toyotomi army and Date army have organized preparations for a retreat as well. We’re heading out now too.”

It wasn’t just Katsuie-san who was seriously injured by the Mouri army’s attack.

Together with Katsuie-san there was Toshiie-san and the Date army’s Shigezane-san. Each person also seemed to have suffered grave wounds.

[YUZUKI]: (Katsuie-san… his injuries are sealed but he still doesn’t look well.)

[YUZUKI]: (I’m only useful to everyone with the power of my blood, and yet…!)

I squeezed the sacred treasure that I had in front of my chest, hard.

[YUZUKI]: (… Himemiko-sama, please, I’m begging you for the power to save Katsuie-san—)

—In that moment, as if my wish reached her, the sacred treasure abruptly began to shine.

[YUZUKI]: (Why…? It hasn’t responded until now…!)

    Its actually good thing imo that Yuzuki’s blood wasn’t as effective as it should here, as if stating that its not some kind of miracle elixir or as good as anyone thought it was. or if it WAS, I would find it very interesting if Yuzuki had to like…sacrifice herself (nearly dying due to anemia) in order to fully heal someone who’s on the brink of death. That would make for a very angsty and dark twist

      I always just assumed that the more blood the longer the power-up + more benefits, so like a mortal wound would involve draining her to the brink of anemia or something. It’s a bit strange in how it doesn’t seem to do ANYTHING at this point, but maybe it’s also because Katsuie is completely unconscious? They really wanted to push the sacred treasure collection plot line ASAP |D;;.

    Oh god, i just cannot. I would have been on the ground crying if i were the mc. I wonder if there will be any further battles thats fiercer than this one, that could be like almost towards the end of the route tho. Im pretty sure katsuie wont die.

      I was actually thinking like “Uh, if Katsuie is unconscious then no duh he can’t drink your blood? You should give it mouth-to-mouth or something” LOL. Like maybe she has to get him to actually swallow it somehow? But I guess we’re going this route instead :’)).

    NAGAHIDE]: “It seems like the Toyotomi army and Date army have organized preparations for a retreat as well. We’re heading out now too.”

    Motonari’s plan was actually really smart. By attacking and severely wounding one vassal from each army led to them retreating rather quickly. As mentioned in the Mouri Army’s route it wouldn’t be smart to attack the generals of each army because that will only aggravate their vassals and cause more conflict in attempts to avenge them. After at least harming one member of their army the members of Mouri simply left without causing further conflict. This was definitely a smart move on Motonari’s behalf because with this the war ended quicker than I though it would, considering the fact that they were prioritizing those who were harmed rather than pursing in a chaotic battle.

      It still feels like a gamble, because what if the generals were like “whatever, let’s take the loss of one commander” and continued on? But then again I guess the Mouri DID strike after all the armies fought for a while so in addition to a commander being severely wounded the soldiers are exhausted. It’s also a harsh but clever move for none of the Mouri commanders to deal the finishing blow when they could have ;;; like they just stabbed everyone once, severely, and then left but they had more than enough time to cut off a head or something. But I guess by leaving the people barely alive, it’ll encourage the armies to retreat and try to treat them.

      I’m really interested in how this new arc is going to go because… Oda’s heroine is allied with Toyotomi and Date, so she’ll be (sort of) helping them along with Katsuie. But what about Uesugi, Takeda, and Sanada, who also had members that were hurt? LOL.
