Chapter 3: The Shape of Peace

To protect those they should, Motonari and the others chose the path of drawing their swords. After the battle, they passed a short time as they always did, but…

In front of this calm daily life, a small doubt suddenly sprouted.

Chapter 3.4

[YUZUKI]: “Wah!?”

It was the bracelet I had picked up that was releasing the light.

[MOTOHARU]: “…! This light isn’t normal… so it really is a sacred treasure.”

[MOTONARI]: “Yes. That must be why no one but her could even touch this bracelet.”

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

[IMARI]: “Huh? This light… isn’t it pointing somewhere?”

[YUZUKI]: “Eh…?”

After being told that by Imari-kun, I took a closer look and it was true that the sacred treasure’s light became a single line and pointed somewhere.

[TAKAKAGE]: “As I remember, that direction is…”

[TAKAMOTO]: “Yes… it’s probably the area with the lithograph.”

[MOTONARI]: “It could be the case that the lithograph is still hiding some secrets.”

[TERUMOTO]: “Then, if we go to that place again, we might be able to get a clue to granting the peace that Himemiko-sama talked about!”

[YUZUKI]: “Motonari-san…! I’d like to take another look at the stone slab.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “What are you saying? You saw what happened too when we went before, right?”

[TAKAKAGE]: “There’s strong yakuma over there, unlike the ones around here.”

[MOTOHARU]: “That’s right. We killed them all at the time, but they might appear again.”

[MOTOHARU]: “Besides, it’s calm right now, but we’re in an unknown state where the other armies may begin to move at any time.”

[MOTONARI]: “That is true. Seeing that we cannot loosen our vigilance here, it would be difficult for everyone to go to the lithograph as before…”

[YUZUKI]: (What everyone is saying is right. I guess I can only give up here…)

[IMARI]: “I want to go too! I might be able to see Himemiko-sama again.”

[YUZUKI]: “Imari-kun…”

[YUZUKI]: (That’s right… The last time we met her felt like an illusion and it can’t be said we actually met her, so Imari-kun must be uneasy.)

[YUZUKI]: (Besides, this light might even disappear and we don’t know if there’ll be another chance to grab a clue.)

I pulled myself together again and was going to ask them once more when Motonari-san opened his mouth before me.

[MOTONARI]: “I know. Princess, your feelings haven’t changed.”

[YUZUKI]: “…!”

[MOTONARI]: “You are trying to do your best to grant Himemiko’s wish to return peace to Shinga.”

[MOTONARI]: “I also promised to help you return to your original world. I do not intend to go against that.”

[MOTONARI]: “Therefore, we will go to the lithograph together.”

[YUZUKI]: “Motonari-san…!”

[MOTONARI]: “In addition, Takamoto, will you come with us as well?”

[TAKAMOTO]: “Huh!? I-is it alright for me…?”

[MOTONARI]: “Yes, you were the one who deciphered the old documents leading to that place and the information on the lithograph.”

[MOTONARI]: “If a change has occurred then I believe you would be the first to notice it.”

[MOTONARI]: “And so, I would like your aid.”

[TAKAMOTO]: “… Understood. I’ll do my best to be of use.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “Is this going to be okay? I’m a little worried.”

[MOTOHARU]: “Same, I think I should go—“

[MOTONARI]: “No, Motoharu, Takakage, and Terumoto, I would like you three to remain in the castle.”

[MOTONARI]: “Although they received a serious blow, there is more than enough of a possibility that they will come to Mouri territory again.”

[MOTONARI]: “I would like you all to protect the castle.”

Motoharu-san and the others, after being told this by Motonari-san, nodded in understanding.

However Terumoto-kun, even though he was nodding, looked at me with a worried expression.

[TERUMOTO]: “Motonari-sama and Takamoto-sama are with you, but… I’m still worried. Will you be OK?”

[YUZUKI]: “I’ll be fine. Thank you.”

[YUZUKI]: “Terumoto-kun, do you best at the castle too.”

[TERUMOTO]: “… Okay, I know!”

[MOTONARI]: “Let us return to the castle for now then to make preparations.”

    In some way, this Mouri chapters had been a relief from all the others. It was nice not read about battles for a while.

      Not to mention all the repetitiveness LOL I kept on having to go back and forth through things I already translated to make sure I grabbed the same lines ;;;; because they were literally saying the same thing they said on other routes. Mouri pushes the plot a bit more forward, marginally.

      I wonder why THEIR sacred treasure lead them back to the stone, unless all sacred treasures just lead you to the stone that tells you to go ahead and collect them all |D;;
