SNB Toyotomi ~ 光盟 Chapter 3.5 ~

Chapter 3: Will

A scream echoed on the battlefield. When they ran towards the location of the voice there they found Toshiie heavily injured by Mouri Motonari. Despite trying to use her blood to heal Toshiie’s wound though…

Chapter 3.5

Due to Hanbee-kun’s proposal, there was a temporary truce in place, and everyone began to fight the yakuma together, but—

I could see that Hanbee-kun’s movements were slower than usual, maybe because the wound he got from protecting me hurt.

[YUZUKI]: “Does the wound from earlier hurt? If so, then my blood—“

[HANBEE]: “We can’t. If I drink your blood here then your secret will be discovered by the other armies, right?”

[YUZUKI]: “But at this rate your arm injury will…!”

[HANBEE]: “It’s fine, it’s fine. I’ll be open when I’m drinking your blood and when that happens… ah!”

Hanbee-kun barely repelled the attack of a yakuma which came in from the side.

[HANBEE]: “I won’t be able to protect you, see. I’d like you to let me be cool sometimes—“

[MASANOBU]: “Watch out!”

[HANBEE]: “Oops—! It doesn’t look like we have the time to leisurely talk.”

[RANMARU]: “That’s right… Haagh!!”

It wasn’t just Masanobu-san but also Ranmaru-san who came running and cut down the yakuma that tried to attack Hanbee-kun.

[RANMARU]: “Please don’t drop your guard! It’ll be a problem if we’re down a head!”

[MASANOBU]: “Behind you…!”

[RANMARU]: “Huh—“

[HANBEE]: “Hah!”

This time it was Hanbee-kun who slashed down the yakuma at Ranmaru-san’s back.

[HANBEE]: “You can’t drop your guard, right?”

[RANMARU]: “… I know.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Both of you! I apologize for interrupting while you’re having fun cooperating, but help out over here too!”

[RANMARU]: “Wha! Who is…!”

[HANBEE]: “Oh, that’s right! Since it’s like this, why don’t we do what Kojuurou said and fight together? I thought of a good plan.”

[RANMARU]: “… If you’re saying it can break through this situation then I’ll get on that plan.”

[HANBEE]: “Leave it to me! Everyone, give me your ears for a moment.”

Under Hanbee-kun’s instructions, everyone began to cooperate. Because of that, the formidable yakuma were defeated one after another—

The last yakuma was successfully defeated by Kojuurou-san and Kanetsugu-san’s simultaneous attack.

[RANMARU]: “… We managed to defeat them somehow.”

[KANETSUGU]: “It was surprising when they were cut down once but then stood up and came at us.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Mm…”

[HANBEE]: “… The strength of those yakuma was abnormal. Could it be—“

[MASANOBU]: “They may have been for eliminating those who approached this lithograph.”

[KOJUUROU]: “In any case, so that nothing further happens, we should take a look at that lithograph.”

[RANMARU]: “It’s written with quite old characters. Let’s see…”

[RANMARU]: “—‘If thou completes the sacred treasures and offers them to the capital, then the path towards unification shall open.'”

Everyone made a noise of surprise when Ranmaru-san read out the words on the stone slab.

[YUZUKI]: (Sacred treasures… capital… Either one is related to Himemiko-sama.)

[YUZUKI]: “I wonder if unifying the country is connected to Himemiko-sama’s wish then…”

[HANBEE]: “What’s this about Himemiko-sama’s wish?”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah… uh…”

[YUZUKI]: (I haven’t told anyone all this time about speaking to Himemiko-sama, but… right now I need to talk about it properly.)

I briefly told Hanbee-kun about how I met with Himemiko-sama.

[HANBEE]: “—I see. She wants Shinga to be a peaceful place with no conflict, huh…”

[HANBEE]: “Thank you for telling me… If this is hard to say to Hideyoshi-sama, how about I tell him?”

[YUZUKI]: “… No, I think I want to properly tell Hideyoshi-san with my own words.”

The moment my heart was stabbed with guilt at breaking the promise of “not hiding anything”, everyone tensed their bodies all of a sudden.

[???]: “Oh my, it appears there were preceding visitors.”

Two shapes appeared from the shadow of a tree as everyone increased their caution at the unfamiliar voice.

    Even a pretty boy can be a man lol 😉 and now she said about keeping secrets from monkey boy come to think of it, I completely forgot their promises each other so this is a refresh on my memory 😃. Hmm, but Hideyoshi kept a secret too before about the mirror and he felt guilt too so…. I guess they’re even 😅 (still keep me laughing because Toshiie lol). So now I’ll wait what Hideyoshi’s reaction about her.

      It’s been so long that I completely forgot the promise too OOPS w-when was that… But, ehehe, I really like these Hanbee-centric chapters because he does get kind of covered by how aggressive Hideyoshi is and how loud Toshiie is and tsun Mitsunari is, etc etc. He’s just such a devious, unassuming, and feminine looking dude but here he is being charming and clever |D.

      I think, rather than feeling guilty about keeping secrets, Hideyoshi is more feeling guilty because of the little lies he tells all over the place LOL like he says, he really does breathe lies. But the heroine is the only one who can see through them easily :’)).

      There is no way I can think of Hanbee as ‘cool’.
      Feminine, yes. Girly, yes. Cute, also yes… but not cool.
      LOL.

        :'(( He wants to be seen as a guy too. It’s the fate of poor characters who have androgynous designs or get mistaken for girls, oof.
