It happened when I was walking in the courtyard, about to water the flowers.

[YUZUKI]: (Huh, over there is Terumoto-kun…?)

Chapter 5: An Awe-Inspiring Resolve

Knowing every army has begun to obtain the sacred treasures, everyone could feel the presence of an unavoidable war.

Among them is the glum look of Takamoto, appointed as the next general. The real intention behind that was…?

Chapter 5.4

The next day Motonari-san and the others finished breakfast, but just as they started talking about beginning their work…

I thought I heard rushed footsteps and in the next moment a soldier entered.

And then they told Motonari-san and the others that each army was moving.

[MOTONARI]: “… Concerning that, we must strengthen our defenses and pay heed to the movements around us.”

[MOTONARI]: “Make preparations in haste. I am trusting you all to do your best so as not to let them penetrate into Mouri’s lands.”

Chapter 4: A Turbulent Heartbeat

Seeking the stone slab serving as a clue to Himemiko and the sacred treasures, the Mouri party departed.

Yakuma increased in strength with every step. As everyone was forced into a close fight, Takamoto suffered a severe wound…

Chapter 4.5

When we went down the path Terumoto-kun found, we were able to find what we were aiming for.

[MOTOHARU]: “So this is the stone slab.”

[TERUMOTO]: “It’s biiiiig~.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “It’s been abandoned for quite some time, huh. The ivy wrapped around it is in the way though.”

[MOTOHARU]: “Looks like we can only make it readable.”

When I looked around the area, countless sinister eyes releasing a murderous intent where turned our way.

[YUZUKI]: (No way… those are all yakuma…?)

Yakuma increased in strength with every step. As everyone was forced into a close fight, Takamoto suffered a severe wound…

Chapter 4.3

[YUZUKI]: (Eh? My body is warm…)

Even though I should have been sleeping outside, I was comfortable like something was surrounding me and I couldn’t feel the cold at all.

When I moved my body in order to find out what it was, I heard a soft voice from above my head.

[MOTONARI]: “Are you awake?”

Chapter 4: A Turbulent Heartbeat

Seeking the stone slab serving as a clue to Himemiko and the sacred treasures, the Mouri party departed.

Yakuma increased in strength with every step. As everyone was forced into a close fight, Takamoto suffered a severe wound…

Chapter 4.2

After we defeated the yakuma we began again to proceed deeper into the forest towards the stone slab.

By detouring around bad roads and going forward slowly to match me, who was unused to moving on a horse, the day had passed in a blink.

[MOTONARI]: “Takamoto, how much further until the stone slab?”

[TAKAMOTO]: “Today… seems a bit unlikely…”

Yakuma increased in strength with every step. As everyone was forced into a close fight, Takamoto suffered a severe wound…

Chapter 4.1

Early morning the next day.

Finishing the cleanup for breakfast, I rode on Takakage-san’s horse together with Imari-kun and, along with everyone else, we aimed for the stone slab on a specific mountain in Mouri territory.

[YUZUKI]: (We’re the only ones still who know that there’s a stone slab deep in the forest…)

[YUZUKI]: (We need to find it first somehow before it’s known to the other armies…)

Chapter 3: Fate Comes Alive

Something was documented in ancient characters on a paper inside the box.

In the middle of the investigation as to whether something about Himemiko was recorded or not, the secret of the sacred treasures was told to her by Takakage.

Chapter 3.3

—The next day. A busy morning arrived inside the Mouri castle.

Motonari-san arranged security and released spies to probe into the movements of the other armies. It seemed like Takamoto-san was aiding him in that and deciphering the old document.

Imari-kun, Terumoto-kun, and I were on alert together in my room.

[YUZUKI]: (Motoharu-san and Takakage-san still haven’t returned since yesterday evening… I wonder if they’re okay…)

[YUZUKI]: (I can’t believe a spy snuck into Mouri lands at that time…)

[YUZUKI]: (It feels like things have become huge somehow…)

Chapter 3.2

[MOTONARI]: “It appears that several other armies have begun to obtain the sacred treasures.”

Several armies… meaning there might not be any sacred treasures left.

In the middle of the investigation as to whether something about Himemiko was recorded or not, the secret of the sacred treasures was told to her by Takakage.

Chapter 3.1

When I checked the contents of the small box we found in the forest, there was a small, folded sheet of paper inside.

[YUZUKI]: (I can see something like letters… I wonder what this is?)

I spread out the paper and a lot of ancient characters were arranged in lines.

[YUZUKI]: (Is this an… old document?)

Chapter 2: A Melody of Plots

Although she went to a cave by the invitation of Takakage, who said he knew the whereabouts of a sacred treasure, she was met with an unexpected event.

In a predicament where yakuma could appear at any time, what she thought was…

Chapter 2.5

In the end, I didn’t obtain useful clues regarding the sacred treasures, but…

After hearing about the circumstances of Mouri I felt like the distance between me and everyone had shrunk and I was somewhat happy.

Feeling good, I was about to enter my room when I sensed someone inside.

[IMARI]: “Owawa, phleash shtop!”

[YUZUKI]: (Huh…? Just now, that was Imari-kun’s voice!?)

[YUZUKI]: “Imari-kun!!”

Chapter 2.1

I know the whereabouts of a sacred treasure. Hearing that, I got on Takakage-san’s horse, and proceeded deep into the mountains together with Imari-kun.

As the temperature decreased, maybe because we were going deep into the moutnains, I unconsciously shivered when a cool wind blew.

[TAKAKAGE]: “Cold?”

[YUZUKI]: “A little…”

[TAKAKAGE]: “But you can bear it, can’t you?”

[YUZUKI]: “Y-yes.”

Chapter 1: A Mysterious Chance Meeting

Motonari welcomed her readily to settle in the castle for the time being.

When she was brought by him to the shrine, where they first met, there was a monster she had never seen before…!

Chapter 1.3

[MOTOHARU]: “—Motonari-sama.”

[MOTONARI]: “Mm? What is it, Motoharu?”

[MOTOHARU]: “… You spoke about the swarm of yakuma, but I’m still concerned about their movements, which were different from usual.”

[MOTONARI]: “Hm. And?”

Chapter 0: An Elegant Encounter

When she woke up, she found herself in a world she had never seen before called Shinga.

And, as suggested by the man named “Mouri Motonari” who appeared in front of her, she was invited to the castle where they lived, but……?

Suddenly, I heard voices.

[???]: “Why is there a girl in a sacred place like this?”

[???]: “She’s wearing strange clothes, but maybe she’s a foster child?”
