Bloodline Limit - Chapter 78
“Sigh, don’t mention it. I never thought that the genes of the Sharingan and Wood Release chakra were like fire and water. I wasn’t expecting them to actually destroy each other when I took my eyes off them. In the end, the genes were destroyed and the sample was gone. If you didn’t take the blood of this person who survived the First Hokage’s cells, I don’t even know what to do.”
Bulma saw Ryoha’s strange gaze and knew that Ryoha had already left a deep impression on her because of her brilliant performance over the years. Now that he has suddenly seen this situation, How could she not know what he was thinking?
However, at the same time, Bulma was also very happy and proud in his heart. She was also felt a bit narcissistic. It was wonderful to be able to make the person she cared about the most admire him so much. It was just like how her father and mother liked their children to admire them.
Although the relationship between Bulma and Ryoha became a bit ambiguous after the kiss, their feelings and daily actions had never changed. Their feelings only grew by the day, becoming deeper and deeper. Their intimacy also grew between passing days.
“Hehe, Haku, how’s life here?” Ryoha greeted Haku before he went to the bathroom after Bulma handed him a pair of clothes.
“Very good. Thank you for your concern, Both you and Bulma-sama have always taken good care of me.” Although Haku had slowly walked out of the shadow of her past, old habit dies hard.
Deep down, Haku was very gentle and quiet. She was very obedient to the rules that she believed to be right. She would never break them, even it costs her life.
“That’s good. If you have anything to say to me, just tell me. To be honest, I don’t demand much from you. I just hope that you can treat this place as your home. Bulma is your family now, and she is the person I care about the most. I hope that you can help me protect her when I am away, okay?”
Ryoha did not use a commanding tone, but a slightly pleading tone. Obviously, he did not really treat Haku as a tool, but as a woman with her own dignity.
Haku was stunned. She did not expect Ryoha to use this kind of tone to speak to her. In fact, she would do the same even with Ryoha’s commanding tone because she really liked Bulma. Haku felt the same warmth of his dead mother’s care from Bulma.
Therefore, even if Ryoha didn’t say anything, Haku would still do her best to protect Bulma. However, she didn’t expect that Ryoha would actually respect her so much. From beginning to end, he had treated her as a person. She had dignity, self-respect, personality, and mind. She wasn’t a tool.
This made Haku feel a different feeling from when Bulma was concerned about her. She felt very comfortable and happy. She didn’t say anything and just nodded vigorously.
Ryoha smiled. He walked into the bathroom and took a comfortable bath. It was as if he had washed away all the fatigue in his body and mind. Then, he went to sleep instead of the usual training. Only here could Ryoha sleep at ease without any worries. The so-called rest outside was actually just a superficial rest since he needed to be vigilant at all times.
The next day, the warm morning sunlight sprinkled on Ryoha’s body and covered him with a gentle warmth. Feeling the subtle changes in the temperature on the surface of his body, Ryoha immediately opened his eyes and stretched. After washing and walking down, he found that Bulma was already standing near the table with two plates. Inside were Chinese dishes. Needless to say, only Bulma knew his taste.
“You’re awake. Come and have breakfast.” Bulma turned around and found that Ryoha was already standing beside him. Bulma was quite familiar with Ryoha’s strength at this time, so it was not surprising that he had a strong immunity to his elusive Bulma.
“Okay.” A trace of warmth flashed in Ryoha’s eyes. He walked to the chair and sat down. He had breakfast with Bulma and Haku who had just cleaned up. Ryoha did not train for the rest of the day. He accompanied Bulma and Haku to stroll around Konoha. There was a man and two women.
Although the man was not very handsome, he was definitely very attractive. Moreover, his eyes were full of confidence with a bit of evil charm, it was deep like the stars in the dark night. Many people said women’s eyes highly boost their beauty. The same was true for men. A pair of deep and mysterious eyes also increased their handsomeness up to three points.
The two women had good figures, beautiful faces, and bright eyes. Everything was complete, but they were two completely different kinds of beauty. The three beauties walking around naturally caused a lot of waves in Konoha, especially now in the middle of the Chuunin Exam. Many people who had been in the village or small countries around came to Konoha, making it very lively.
If not for Ryoha’s good reputation in the Konoha Village, it was very likely that someone would come to talk to him. When Ryoha saw people like this, he was more determined to obtain more strength. Without such strength, let alone the two behind him, he couldn’t even protect himself.
He had the power now though. With his hard work and Bulma’s help, he had enough strength to protect them, so he felt very proud.
After visiting almost every shopping district, scenic spot, and having fun around Konoha for three days, Ryoha put away his playful heart and once again immersed himself in his vigorous training. He was already regarded as one of the top ninjas Konoha, but in the wider world, he was still far from it.
Especially when he thought of the Akatsuki, Orochimaru’s evil plans, and even the Fourth Ninja War, Ryoha felt more motivated to do his training. At the same time, he felt that his responsibility was getting heavier. If he did not become strong, he would become an ant. This world was a world of struggle, and he had to rely on his own strength to win against everyone.
“Kyubi.. you bastard… The next time we meet, I will use the Mangekyo, or the Eternal Mangekyo to teach you a good lesson. Damn, he was hiding it from me all this time.”
“The extracted Nine-Tails chakra will devour all the chakra in my body. Although my final chakra will become nutrients for the Nine-Tails chakra and accelerate its growth, it will completely replace all the original chakra in my body.”
“But that bastard didn’t say that it would be so painful. Fuck, I was cool with chakra extraction and training before, but refining the Nine-Tails chakra is really painful. Although the Nine-Tails chakra is very powerful, I don’t think I can bear this. This process is too painful. The Nine-Tails chakra might be clashing with the original chakra in my body. I need my body to adapt with the Nine-Tails chakra.”
“The piece of origin that the Kyubi gave me should also be changing my body. Sigh.. before my body completely absorbs the piece of origin, I might need to suffer like this for a period of time. Maybe it wouldn’t be so painful after this.”
Although he felt kinda tragic and depressed inside, Ryoha had to endure the tearing pain all over his body. At the same time, he had to keep extracting the chakra with three things in mind.
