Bloodline Limit - Chapter 34
“What? He’s really that powerful?” Naruto looked at Ryoha with jealousy. Why was this guy so lucky?
“No, Kakashi-sensei, I think you misunderstood. I’m not a genius. On the contrary, I’m just a little smart.”
Ryoha shook his head. This time, Kakashi also looked at Ryoha with curiosity. In his eyes, Ryoha was definitely a genius that only appeared once in a hundred years or even a thousand years. After seeing it once, he could actually use such complicated ninjutsu, and he was very skillful at it.
“If there really is a genius in this world, I can only be considered a hardworking genius. I trained myself a lot while you were sleeping, and when you were playing, I was also training.”
“While you were just playing ninjas, I was thinking about how to make myself stronger. I don’t have any ninjutsu scrolls. The only thing I can use is weapons and chakra, so I can only start with chakra. In my opinion, even one was considered a genius. If they don’t work hard, and don’t have anyone to guide them, they will eventually become trash.”
“So even if they are geniuses, there is nothing to be proud of because these so-called geniuses are just a bit better than ordinary people. As long as ordinary people do several times or even dozens of times more effort than them, it is not impossible to surpass the so-called geniuses.”
“Is that so? But if such talent as you is not considered a genius, then the bar for one to be considered a genius will be very high. Forget it, let’s not talk about this. No wonder you have always been so outstanding. Your words are like a friend of mine, and he also said the same thing about himself. He even taught his disciple this way, what a hardworking genius.”
Hearing Ryoha’s words, Kakashi thought of his friend Guy. He couldn’t help but become more and more pleased with Ryoha. Not only was this kid talented, but he was also sensible. He was level-headed and didn’t have any arrogance. He even knew that one’s geniuses are not something to be taken for granted. Working hard was the most important thing.
“Alright, sensei, let’s not stray any further. What exactly do I have to do to accomplish what you said?” Naruto said anxiously, and Sasuke’s face became gloomier.
He felt that Ryoha was simply mocking him when he said that he wasn’t a genius because he had only thought of himself as a genius. It was ironic to hear that people who were so much better than him were denying their own genius.
“It’s very simple. It’s just climbing trees. But you can’t use your hands. Ryoha, show them once.” Kakashi said.
Ryoha shrugged his shoulders indifferently and walked straight to a tree in front of him. Then, step by step, his feet stuck to the tree trunk like glue, and just like that, he walked to the top of the tree.
“First, climbing trees, then stepping on water. To do both, you need a certain level of chakra control.”
Kakashi looked at Hao Liu with satisfaction. He had nothing to say about this kid’s understanding of chakra control.
“That’s it. It might look simple, but just listening to me here is not enough. Take this kunai and see for yourself. You will understand.” Kakashi threw three kunai at the feet of the three, indicating that they could start.
“Ouch!” Naruto fell to the ground right after he tried to climb, clutching his head and screaming in pain. On the other side, Sasuke had climbed almost halfway before falling down.
“Naruto, did you see that? This is the so-called gap between geniuses and ordinary ninjas. Take you and Sasuke, for example. He did so much better on his first try, but you need to do it many times to achieve his result. You might not even be able to achieve it in your lifetime. The geniuses among the geniuses are comparable to Sasuke and Ryoha.”
Kakashi knew that if they wanted to learn it as soon as possible, they had to feel pressure. There was also the motivation for competition, so he provoked them.
“Damn it.” Sasuke and Naruto looked at each other and actually had a feeling of sympathy.
“It is not very difficult.” Sakura’s words immediately attracted the attention of everyone except Ryoha. She was already sitting on a tree.
Although she could not hang upside down on a tree branch like Ryoha for a long time, her chakra control was good enough to climb to the top of the tree for the first time.
“Oh! I really didn’t expect that you two boys are losing to a girl like Sakura. Sakura, it seems that your theoretical knowledge and practical experience are equal. It seems that the person who always said that he wants to become the Hokage doesn’t have a chance. The other so-called genius of Uchiha can’t even compare to a girl.”
Kakashi continued to provoke the two. Sure enough, it was okay to lose to a man like Ryoha, but the loss to Sakura, who had always been weak and protected by others. Naruto and Sasuke were desperate to catch up.
“Look, as expected, you and I are a pair.” Sakura fantasized in her heart.
“Kakashi-sensei, this training seems to be useless for me now. There are still seven days. Are you planning to let me waste my time here?”
Ryoha was bored. He was obviously planning to learn more jutsu from this Copy Ninja.
“I see.” Kakashi was also confused. If everyone was almost at the same level, they could still train together. Now that the genius Ryoha was here. He could not slack around even if he wanted to.
“Well, I think you should be short of ninjutsu. Come with me. I will teach you some ninjutsu.” Kakashi thought for a while. He had observed Ryoha for a long time. He could basically confirm that Ryoha was definitely a genius, and he was better than Sasuke.
As for whether he was loyal to Konoha or not, it was hard to say. But Ryoha had grown up in Konoha since childhood. Even if he were not loyal to Konoha, he would not betray Konoha. As long as he gave Ryoha a certain favor, there would be no problem. Therefore, Kakashi would definitely teach Ryoha some Ninjutsu. Otherwise, Ryoha would be very dissatisfied with Konoha. Kakashi believed that the Third would be satisfied with his decision.
“What? Kakashi-sensei, how can you be so biased? You will personally teach Ryoha?” Naruto was the first to jump over and complain.
“You should finish climbing the tree first. If you have Ryoha’s strength, I will definitely teach you something. Don’t forget that from the beginning until now, you haven’t shown any outstanding performance except for fear. Even if I teach you ninjutsu, you won’t be able to learn it.” Kakashi mercilessly refused and led Ryoha to the other side of the forest.
