Bloodline Limit - Chapter 28
“Good, you are not bad at all. A recently graduated Genin like you managed to keep up with me for so long. Even if you die, you will rest in peace.”
Although Zabuza was praising Ryoha, the killing intent in his eyes became even stronger. The more outstanding Ryoha was, the more he wanted to kill Ryoha.
“Look carefully. This is the strength of a Top Ninja.” Zabuza’s words caused Ryoha’s expression to change slightly. He didn’t think that Zabuza’s attacks just now were all play, and he had not used his real strength at all.
If that were the case, he would be in danger. However, the more dangerous it was, the calmer his heart became. However, he was getting more and more excited. It was not fear but ecstasy and excitement.
He did not see any movement at all. Zabuza had already disappeared. Ryoha widened his eyes, but he could not see any movement.
“It’s over little brat. I will take your head.” The cold voice came from behind Ryoha. At the same time, a sharp sound of an explosion broke through the air, accompanied by a strong wind that slightly hurt Ryoha’s neck. The sword was coming towards his head.
Ryoha’s head was lopped off. Sakura almost fainted from the horror. Only Kakashi’s face remained unchanged. However, his Sharingan was closely looking at Ryoha.
The separated head and body fell to the ground with a pop and turned into a piece of wood. At this moment, Ryoha’s voice came from behind.
“Fire Release – Fireball Jutsu!.” The time was too tight. Ryoha simply didn’t have time to finish one more jutsu. In a battle, let alone a second, even a 0.1 second could determine the winner. Therefore, Ryoha didn’t dare to release two jutsus like before.
A high-temperature fireball directly surrounded Zabuza’s body. It continued to burn him with a hiss. Even the water under his feet was evaporated.
“Phew… Phew… I almost died. Is this strength of a top ninja? If I hadn’t escaped quickly, I wouldn’t have been a match for him. He wouldn’t even need to use ninjutsu. Just his physical skills alone are enough to kill me in one move.”
Ryoha’s forehead was covered in cold sweat as he stared at the center of the flame. He couldn’t believe that he would be able to kill Zabuza even if he hit him directly. He was able to use the Body Substitution Jutsu in that situation before to escape Zabuza’s slash.
“Very good, little brat. You can actually resist. But can you save yourself again? You just graduated from Konoha, so they shouldn’t have taught you any powerful ninjutsu. How many pieces of wood do you have left for the Body Substitution Jutsu? Die.”
After the flame disappeared, Zabuza was no longer there. Ryoha already knew that Zabuza would use the Water Clone or the Water Substitution jutsu. After all, Zabuza was very good with his water release jutsus.
“I still can’t see him? No, I can’t hide anymore. If I continue to hide, I will die sooner or later. I can see it. I can do it.”
When Ryoha heard the voice, he knew that the Zabuza would use the same attack as before. He subconsciously avoided it, but this thought was suppressed by Ryoha as soon as it rose. Instead, it was replaced with madness and determination.
“Won’t hide anymore? Do you know that you will die sooner or later? Very good. I will let you die quickly.” The voice of Zabuza can be heard again, but it was strange since it seemed to come from all directions.
Even without the Mist Concealment Jutsu, Zabuza was still really good at concealing his body. Moreover, his speed was much superior compared to Ryoha.
“I will definitely be able to see him.” Ryoha roared crazily in his heart. His Sharingan began to spin at a speed that exceeded his usual limit. The chakra in his body began to circulate frantically and started pouring into his eyes. Ryoha only felt pain in his eyes. Immediately, a very calm feeling came from his eyes.
Ryoha only felt that the world seemed clearer than ever before. Compared to before, his vision was wider, farther, and lighter.
Ryoha felt that he could clearly see the high-speed movement of his opponent in battle and could even use this to predict the next their next move.
“Die! Little brat.” It was too late. Although he had achieved so much, one second was not enough. Zabuza had already rushed behind Ryoha and attacked with the same move as before. It was a pity that the result would be different this time because Ryoha’s Sharingan had awakened the second tomoe.
Not only that, but his mental strength had also become stronger. At the same time, the amount of chakra in his body had also increased. Ryoha felt that his overall strength had almost entirely increased along with the evolution of his Sharingan.
“I saw it.” Ryoha thought in his heart. His body moved as his heart moved. The knife in his hand was like a ferocious snake. He stabbed at Zabuza before he could cut him.
The blade collided. Zabuza’s sword was actually pierced by Ryoha’s type-56, creating a small hole. At the same time, it also scratched Zabuza’s arm.
“How is this possible?” Zabuza’s eyes widened, and he looked at Ryoha in disbelief. His strength was completely different from before. Not only did he dodge, but he could even react and hurt him.
What he could not believe the most was that the strange weapon in Ryoha’s hand had pierced through his sword. This was one of the Seven Swords of the Mist! Although it could not be compared to a divine weapon, it was not inferior to Orochimaru’s Kusanagi.
“Kakashi-sensei, this can’t be real, right!? How could Ryoha fight back and even hurt a Jonin?” Naruto smiled reluctantly.
“I’m sorry to tell you, what you saw just now was the truth. Not only did he see through Zabuza’s actions in advance, but he also did a counterattack, seizing the opportunity to hurt Zabuza. In addition, I didn’t expect his weapon to be so sharp. It looks like it was useless except for stabbing, but I didn’t expect it to be so powerful.”
Kakashi also widened his 3-tomoe Sharingan. It was like he just saw a ghost. Although Zabuza did look down on Ryoha and used repeated moves in the battle, he was still a real Jonin who had been through the sea of blood and corpses. How could Ryoha hurt him?
Not only that, but Kakashi had a feeling that Ryoha had a change that he couldn’t understand just now. His eyes had changed and filled with killing intent.
Ryoha, who had just come out of Konoha Village as a genin, had transformed his mind after seeing blood and killing the Demon Brothers. He was a qualified ninja now, and he was a very good one.
