Bloodline Limit - Chapter 72
“Is that so? Then show me.” Ryoha was already looking forward to seeing the Eight Inner Gates Formation. This powerful secret technique could definitely turn the tables at a critical moment.
“Take this.” Rock Lee untied the cloth on his hands and said in his heart, “I’m sorry, Guy-sensei. I’m going to use it.”
“Let Konoha’s Lotus bloom, Lee!” Guy saw through Lee’s plan at a glance, but he didn’t stop him as usual, encouraging him instead.
Lee was encouraged, he increased his speed. He rushed to Ryoha and kicked his chin. He was worried that Ryoha would transform into the water again, so every kicks and punch he unleashed was as hot as flames.
“No way, is this thick-browed boy that powerful?” Kankuro’s eyes widen. Ryoha had actually been beaten up all the way from the bottom to the top. He had couldn’t resist at all.
“Front Lotus!” Lee used a strip of cloth to tie Ryoha into a mummy. Then, he held Ryoha and spun at high speed like a tornado, smashing the floor completely.
“So he was still hiding such great strength at that time.” Only now did Sasuke realize that he had always been a frog in a well. The people around him were much stronger than him, the so-called Uchiha. Even if this Rock Lee did not know any Genjutsu, and only knew Taijutsu, he was far stronger than him.
“Did he lose?” Ino stared at the big pit. She could not believe it. The others were also the same. After all, Ryoha had just used Raikiri to face both Kakashi and Guy. The violent scenes were still fresh in their minds.
“Ah… Ah… It should be fine. Even if you are stronger, it is not good for you to be hit by the Front Lotus.” Rock Lee gasped for breath. He was only thirteen years old now. Even if he went through crazy training and used forbidden techniques, he still wouldn’t be able to endure it. After all, he was still very far away from Guy.
“Very good, if I really get hit by you.” Ryoha actually stood up, pushing aside all the dirt and gravel on his body. He completely ignored the people around him that looked at him as if they were looking at a monster.
“No way, Kakashi, is this student of yours a monster? He was uninjured after being hit by the Front Lotus .” Guy’s eyes widen as if he had seen a ghost.
“No, look carefully.” Kakashi’s Sharingan was constantly staring at Ryoha, so he saw details that others could not see.
“What?” Guy stared at Ryoha for a while. Soon, he found that something was wrong. Let alone getting hit, Ryoha’s clothes were not damaged at all. How was this possible? The only explanation was that Lee had not hit Ryoha with his Front Lotus just now, but someone else.
“Ryoha seemed to have been kicked into the air by Rock Lee. In fact, all his attacks went unheeded. Ryoha moved with minimal movement. In other words, all of Lee’s attacks just now were dodged by Ryoha. The range of movement was too small. Therefore, even Rock Lee himself had the feeling that his fist had hit Ryoha, but he actually hit nothing.”
“When Rock Lee’s fist and kick were about to hit Ryoha, Ryoha moved slightly, causing Rock Lee’s attacks to miss. In a very short period of time, he moved his body to a point where Rock Lee could not even notice.”
“It all happened so fast, even Lee couldn’t notice. It just felt like an illusion. In fact, Ryoha had not been hit by Rock Lee even once.
While saying that, Kakashi was equally shocked. Ryoha’s growth was really too fast. Even he himself was not sure that he could do the same as Ryoha. As for the other rookies and Gaara, they were as shocked as the others.
“Then what about the last time? In the end, Ryoha was clearly tied up by Rock Lee’s cloth. He should not be able to dodge when he hit the ground.” Tenten was confused.
“Look at what’s in that pit.” Kakashi pointed at the big pit and found a piece of wood that could not be noticed if one did not look at it carefully.
“Substitution Jutsu.” The rookies were shocked again and again. After all, they had graduated together. How could the gap between them be so big?
“Yes, the moment Rock Lee tied Ryoha with a strip of cloth, Ryoha had already used the Substitution Jutsu to avoid it. Then, when Rock Lee knocked Ryoha’s substitute to the ground, he blew up a cloud of smoke and dust. Rock Lee flashed out to avoid being affected. At this moment, Ryoha exploited the cover from the smoke to just lie there.”
Kakashi couldn’t help but gasp at this point. He had planned so many steps in an instant and perfectly implemented them. Was this really a Genin?
“I really didn’t misjudge you. Although you are not really my student, in that one month of training, I have already regarded you as my direct disciple. Although I may be not qualified to be your teacher, in my heart, I really treat you as my disciple.”
Kurenai was very satisfied with Ryoha. Despite his violent actions earlier, he did all this for the sake of Hinata.
In Kurenai’s opinion, this was some kind of love. Sure enough, not that kind of lovers’ love, but a teacher’s love. He was her proud disciple. Everything was right and everything was good.
“Rock Lee, first of all, I have to thank you for teaching me.” Ryoha suddenly said things that others could not understand, but Kakashi was the first to react.
“No way!” Kakashi was surprised.
“What’s wrong?” This was the first time that Guy had seen such a big change happen to Kakashi within a day.
“See for yourself.” Kakashi pointed to the ground and said nothing.
“What do you mean? When have I ever taught you?” Lee took this opportunity to restore his immobile body.
“Maybe you don’t know. I learned ninjutsu from Kakashi-sensei, and genjutsu from Kurenai-sensei. But the Taijutsu is my weakness. Although I have always trained my body, how can I compare to you, a taijutsu expert who has been trained systematically? But in the battle just now, you taught me some taijutsu.”
