Bloodline Limit - Chapter 59
The surge of lightning flashed continuously around Ryoha. He took off, speeding towards Orochimaru like a jolt of thunder. Sakura, who was around, only felt a blur flash in front of her eyes as Ryoha’s jutsu landed a clean hit on Orochimaru’s body.
“Raikiri is stronger than Chidori? Chidori is an A-rank ninjutsu, does that mean Raikiri is an S-rank ninjutsu?” Sakura was pleasantly surprised. She didn’t expect Ryoha can use even more powerful ninjutsu at the critical moment. A glimmer of hope appeared in her heart.
“Hehe, little brat, you lost.” Orochimaru slowly turned into a pile of mud, and then appeared from the branch under his feet. His body stretched and twisted like a python, wrapping around Ryoha.
“No, it’s your defeat.” Ryoha suddenly appeared behind Orochimaru. It turned out the one who was wrapped by Orochimaru was not him.
“Rasengan.” Orochimaru only felt a spiral force coming from behind him, causing his body to be sucked in. Then, his entire body was twisted and spun, sending him to the ground. At the same time, the one who was wrapped up by him became a ball of smoke.
“One minute has passed.” Ryoha sat on the ground, gasping for breath. He felt that his eyelids were very heavy, but the pain from his arms kept him from fainting. He looked at Orochimaru.
If Ryoha took off his invisible contact lenses, people would definitely see that his Sharingan had awakened the third tomoe. Under the threat of death, Orochimaru’s pressure, his desperation, and madness, Ryoha rushed toward Orochimaru with the Raikiri. At that moment, his Sharingan rotated at a high speed, and the final tomoe had appeared in his both eyes.
With his newly-evolved eyes, he could see the flow of Orochimaru’s chakra and saw through Orochimaru’s earth clone. In a flash, he used the lightning from the Raikiri to block Orochimaru’s sight and created a shadow clone behind him.
After making the shadow clone use the Raikiri, he used Raikiri to block Orochimaru’s vision, and hid to the side, waiting for Orochimaru to catch his shadow clone. Only then did he use the Rasengan to end the battle. Thanks to this strategy, one minute had finally passed.
“Haha, very good, little brat. I didn’t expect you to realize my use of the earth clone, and you even used it to lure me, making me think that you are betting everything on this movie. In fact, you have indeed distracted me, while hiding on the side, waiting for an opportunity to act.”
Orochimaru laughed loudly. He might look really happy, but Ryoha saw a trace of ferocious killing intent in his eyes. Obviously, the talent that Ryoha showed had terrified him.
“You were holding back. You deliberately let me win, Orochimaru.” Ryoha was very smart and gave Orochimaru a way out. Otherwise, who knew if Orochimaru would directly fight him to the death just because he was embarrassed.
“You are very nice.” Orochimaru looked deeply at Ryoha. He didn’t expect that Ryoha had seen through his plan of killing Ryoha or forcibly giving him a cursed mark. Ryoha even gave him a way out in advance. Besides, he was worried that Ryoha really didn’t care about his life and would kill Sasuke.
At that time, Konoha would not even budge about this, but without the Sharingan, there was no way for him to get his revenge on Itachi. In the end, Orochimaru looked at Ryoha and slowly disappeared into the ground. He had plenty of opportunities, anyway, since he would still be in Konoha for a while.
At that time, he would carefully observe Ryoha and adjust everything. He didn’t believe that Ryoha would be able to escape from his grasp, so he let him live for a few more days. When Ryoha lowered his guard, he would go after him again. With this thought in mind, Orochimaru slowly left.
“It really hurts! It felt very good when I stabbed someone with the trident. Now that I am the one who was stabbed, it really hurts.”
Ryoha quickly closed his wounds using chakra, preventing further bleeding. Back on Earth, even the most powerful warrior might have died if a shallow wound like this was left untreated for a long time. But this world was no longer a normal human world. With the energy of chakra, one could completely save their life and even heal the wound.
“Healing.” Ryoha used the most basic medical ninjutsu he had learned in Konoha’s hospital. It was also the simplest medical ninjutsu. Soon, Ryoha’s wound was healed, but his body consumed a lot of chakras. In addition, the side effects of excessive use of the Sharingan came.
“In the past, it was you who took care of me. This time, I will take care of you.” Sakura supported Ryoha, who was about to fall down and brought him to a relatively hidden cave. He put Ryoha down very carefully, and as for the other two, Naruto and Sasuke, they were already lying there and snoring.
“I worked so hard back then, while you two were peacefully sleeping here.” Ryoha said weakly. However, he forgot that he was not trying to protect them but to become stronger and evolve his Sharingan. Otherwise, Naruto and Sasuke’s life had nothing to do with him.
“Sakura, take out this thing from my pocket.” Ryoha raised his right hand and pointed at his pants.
“This one?” Sakura quickly took it out for Ryoha. The first thing she saw was a test tube filled with crystal clear green liquid.
“Yes, that one.” Ryoha drank the liquid in the tube with Sakura’s help. This was the super nutrient solution invented by Bulma. When consumed, not only it could recover one’s energy quickly, but it could also heal wounds faster. It could also detoxify and replenish blood.
At the same time, one could survive without any food for two days after drinking them. It contained enough nutrition for the body, so it was best used after one got injured. This was not a potion, but a nutrient solution, so there were no side effects.
Orochimaru’s snake poison was not fatal. They only made people faint, but Ryoha didn’t want to risk anything. There were dangers everywhere around this forest. He had to recover quickly by drinking Bulma’s solution.
Bulma had spent so many years inventing only four tubes of them. The materials needed were too rare. It was not possible to buy these materials with money. In addition, it required very complicated processing, so Ryoha was keeping them for the most critical situation.
After Ryoha finished drinking, he still felt exhausted after losing so much blood. He lay on the ground and fell asleep. Sakura, on the other hand, was busy taking care of Ryoha. Although Ryoha’s body had no wounds, Sakura was still very worried and was reluctant to sleep.
