Bloodline Limit - Chapter 29
“Well, what I lack the most is ninjutsu. Zabuza, hurry and come at me with your jutsus!” That’s right, after awakening the second tomoe, Ryoha wanted Zabuza to use his water release jutsu.
Because one of his chakra attributes was the water attribute. Recently, he had been learning the nature transformation of chakra. He believed that he could copy Zabuza’s water release ninjutsu.
“Kid, tell me your name. You have injured this Zabuza. Now you are qualified to let me know your name.” Zabuza looked at the wound on his arm that couldn’t heal quickly. It was only a scratch, but even after he used chakra to seal it, it was still couldn’t be healed.
Zabuza was a little scared when he realized that if he didn’t use chakra to seal the wound, he would probably bleed crazily. That was just a little stab, and it had only pierced the skin and a little bit of muscle, but he had already been bleeding so much. That weapon was too terrifying.
“Ryoha.” Ryoha briefly told Zabuza his name, and he was mentally prepared because he could see that the moment he stabbed Zabuza, his eyes changed. Seriousness appeared in his eyes, along with the killing intent. That was something only a Jonin’s eyes could emit.
“Ryoha, eh? To show my respect to you, I will use my water release ninjutsu to bury you in this river, secret art — Mist Concealment.”
Zabuza made a strange posture. One hand raised to the sky, the other hand weaved a seal in front of his chest. The fog started to appear around them.
The vision of Ryoha’s Sharingan became obstructed. The thick fog made by Zabuza affected even Kakashi’s 3-tomoe Sharingan. The fog, which covered almost everything in sight, even blocked his matured Sharingan’s view, let alone Ryoha’s, which was still a 2-tomoe.
“Oh no, Ryoha, come back quickly. This must be the Silent Killing Art,” Kakashi shouted and rushed out at the same time.
“It’s too late, Kakashi!” The sound of metal clashing rang out from the thick fog. Ryoha’s knife and the Zabuza’s sword collided again.
“Oh? You can actually block it? It seems that you evolved with the battle. What a genius!” Zabuza’s voice sounded a little surprised, but he calmed down in an instant.
“There!” Hearing the voice, Kakashi immediately rushed over. At the same time, he felt a strong wind was coming at his right hand, and he took out his kunai without thinking.
“Very good, from now on, your opponent is me,” Kakashi said with satisfaction.
“Do you think I want to fight you? That little brat is very smart. Before you rushed over, he had already escaped. Just now, I was only fighting with his shadow clone.”
Zabuza retorted, obviously he was deceived by Ryoha’s serious look. He thought Ryoha would continue to fight him. But when he realized that Ryoha had escaped just a moment before their clash, he felt very irritated. When he saw Kakashi rush in, he used Kakashi to vent his annoyance.
“Eh! This kid is brilliant. He actually used me as a shield.” Kakashi was speechless. He did not expect that he would be used as a shield.
“Kakashi-sensei, I have achieved my goal. I’ll leave him to you now.” That’s right. Ryoha’s biggest goal was to awaken the second tomoe. He had achieved his goal, and now he had understood the strength of Jonin. Zabuza was not someone that he could defeat at the moment. Unless he launched a sneak attack, and only if that sneak attack was successful
As for copying Ninjutsu, there was no need to fight. He just needed to stand aside and watch. This way, he could familiarize himself with the ability of his newly-evolved Sharingan.
“If you want to fight, I’ll fight with you. But this is the end, Kakashi.” Zabuza’s voice was like a ghost. He was clearly beside Kakashi a second ago, but now he instantly appeared behind Tazuna.
“That’s it.” The faces of the three brats protecting Tazuna changed considerably. They did not know what was going on at all. Zabuza just stood silently in the middle of them. They did not notice him at all. If Zabuza didn’t speak, they would not have known that this was the real Silent Killing Art.
Kakashi seemed to have predicted Zabuza’s movement. Though his 3-tomoe was far from the enemy, and despite the fog around, it was still fixated on Zabuza. As if it had firmly locked on him. Then, it spun around at speed faster than Ryoha’s Sharingan.
Kakashi had copied the Water Clone jutsu after seeing Zabuza using them before, with his Sharingan’s ability. He had also planned his next move.
“Don’t even think about it.” Like a released arrow, Kakashi accurately rushed to the front of Zabuza. He used his Kunai to block the Beheading Sword. Not only that, the moment he stopped the blade, he also stabbed Zabuza with the kunai in his hand.
“Eh…” When Kakashi finally rushed over, the three brats trembled as they watched Zabuza and Kakashi’s clash. This fight was not something they could interfere with right now.
“Damn it. I can’t resist at all. I can’t even control my own life. I don’t even know whether I will survive here. I am a genius of the Uchiha clan, and I have the bloodline of Sharingan.
“Ryoha is just an ordinary person. We are of the same age, and we graduated at the same time. How can he fight against a Jonin for so long? How could he injure him? Why the gap between us is so big?” Sasuke shouted in fear and despair.
However, what came out of the wound was not bright red blood but water.
“Sensei, behind you!” Naruto shouted when he saw Kakashi.
“Die!” Zabuza was a little excited. After all, killing Kakashi would be a blow to Konoha.
If it were not for his crime, even if he were a traitor, the Kirigakure would forgive him and let him return to the village. Unfortunately, the sin he committed was the assassination attempt of the 5th Mizukage. With Mei’s iron hand, how could she let him go?
Zabuza swung his massive sword against Kakashi’s waist. But the smile on his face quickly disappeared, because, just like before, it was just a water clone.
“Water Clone Jutsu! Could it be that he could copy my jutsu in such a thick fog?”
Zabuza was in shock. At the same time, he lost his mind. He subconsciously felt a slight fear of Kakashi’s Sharingan. This moment gave Kakashi the chance to put him under a genjutsu!
