Konoha Hypocrite - Chapter 101
Half a month passed in the blink of an eye.
During this period of time, Uchiha Tunan did not do anything.
After all, Hiruzen Sarutobi was in a fit of anger and he did not want to enter his line of sight again so as not to provoke his bad luck.
A qualified hunter had to know how to wait for an opportunity.
He could endure the loneliness, suppress the impulse, and resist the temptation.
Half a month had already passed.
Considering that so much time had passed, for an experienced politician like Hiruzen Sarutobi, it was time to recover.
The pain brought about by the death of two sons should be mostly recovered.
Only then did Uchiha Tunan prepare to take action.
Early in the morning, the red sunlight had just climbed up the Hokage Rock.
At this time, Uchiha Tunan was sitting on a big tree above the Hokage Rock.
It was unknown where he found a bamboo and used the Kunai to cut it into a flute.
Calculating that it was almost time, Uchiha Tunan put the flute to his mouth and played it gently.
The sad and bleak sound of the flute lingered in the jungle above the Hokage Rock.
Uchiha Tunan’s flute playing technique was obtained from an unknown female prostitute.
The female prostitute was imprisoned by the pimp and received guests. On the day that Uchiha Tunan destroyed the pimp, she gained her approval.
However, that afternoon, Uchiha Tunan received a series of skills from her.
As for how she died, Uchiha Tunan did not care.
Today, this skill of playing the flute could be put to use.
Uchiha Tunan had just started playing for less than a minute.
Hiruzen Sarutobi arrived at the platform above the Hokage Rock.
He looked down at the gradually becoming noisy Konoha.
During this period of time, Hiruzen Sarutobi felt that he was completely filled with hatred, grief, and suspicion.
However, these negative emotions had nowhere to vent for various reasons.
His wife, Biwako Sarutobi, had been staying in the class all year round to teach the younger generation.
This time, after hearing that Shinnosuke was dead and that Asuma was missing, she returned home to make a big fuss with him, and in the end, they parted unhappily.
She threatened that if she could not find Asuma, she would never go home again.
During this period of time, Hiruzen Sarutobi felt a trace of loneliness.
He could only come to the Hokage Rock every morning to relax and then use his busy work to numb himself in the Hokage’s building.
Perhaps it was because he had experienced too many life and death experiences, but Hiruzen Sarutobi felt that he had gradually accepted this fact.
His mood gradually calmed down and was no longer so sad.
Just as Hiruzen Sarutobi looked at the Konoha Village beneath his feet and sighed.
Suddenly, he heard the sound of a flute in the forest.
Almost instantly, Hiruzen Sarutobi broke through his defense.
He stood there in a daze, listening to the sound of the flute in his ear, and the bits and pieces of the relationship between him and Shinnosuke kept appearing in his mind.
Indescribable grief welled up in his heart and seemed to resonate with the sound of the flute.
After listening for a while, Hiruzen Sarutobi subconsciously took a step and walked towards the source of the sound.
He went up the stairs and entered the dense forest.
After taking dozens of steps, he took the wrong path and took a detour.
Finally, he pushed aside the tall plants in front of him and saw the person who was playing the flute clearly.
He saw Uchiha Tunan sitting on a tree branch with his back against the tree trunk. His eyes were lowered, and his face was gloomy as he played the flute.
It seemed that he was using the sound of the flute to tell the sorrow in his heart.
The morning breeze blew Uchiha Tunan’s clothes, and the green leaves passed through Hiruzen Sarutobi’s line of sight.
Hiruzen Sarutobi reached out and grabbed a green leaf, whispering in a low voice that could not be heard, “Where the leaves are flying, the fire is still alive.”
This sentence was really a bit rotten on the street, almost messing up Uchiha Tunan’s rhythm.
Fortunately, Uchiha Tunan had enough self-control.
He did not show any abnormalities, still concentrating on blowing the flute.
Uchiha Tunan could also understand Hiruzen Sarutobi.
After all, as a ninja, his cultural level was not very high.
It was not easy for him to say something that sounded a little philosophical, but of course he had to say it at the right time.
Hiruzen Sarutobi looked at Uchiha Tunan’s appearance and thought that he was still immersed in the grief of Shinnosuke’s death.
He immediately coughed twice.
Uchiha Tunan seemed to be awakened, and the sound of the flute stopped abruptly. Then, he turned his head and looked over.
When he saw that it was Hiruzen Sarutobi, he immediately jumped down from the tree.
He maintained a distance of about five meters from Hiruzen Sarutobi, put his hands on his knees, and bowed,
“Hokage Sama, I’m really sorry. I didn’t expect to disturb you.”
Hiruzen Sarutobi sighed and waved to Uchiha Tunan, indicating for him to follow.
The two of them came to the platform above the rock.
Hiruzen Sarutobi stood in front of the fence and looked down at the entire Konoha. He said with a little sadness,
“Tunan, I know that Shinnosuke’s death is a huge blow to you.”
“If Shinnosuke is still alive, I definitely don’t want you to be depressed because of him.”
Uchiha Tunan knew that Hiruzen Sarutobi seemed to be consoling himself with these words.
In fact, he was just reminiscing about Shinnosuke in another way.
He immediately lowered his head with a sad face and responded with a lonely voice, “Yes.”
Hiruzen Sarutobi sighed and turned to look at Uchiha Tunan, who was keeping a distance from him. He frowned slightly and said,
“I found that you seemed to be deliberately keeping a distance from me since you returned to the village.”
“Are you hiding something from me?”
Uchiha Tunan trembled when he heard this, and he pursed his lips and remained silent. His expression became even more dejected.
Hiruzen Sarutobi pondered over Uchiha Tunan’s expression and eliminated the possibility of betraying him.
He sighed and said, “Tunan, you’ve grown up. You know how to hide your thoughts.”
As he spoke, he walked towards Uchiha Tunan, wanting to stroke his hair like he used to.
However, when Uchiha Tunan saw Hiruzen Sarutobi approaching him, he took a few steps back in a panic.
He said in a nearly pleading tone, “Hokage Sama, please don’t come near me.”
“Tunan, what happened?” Hiruzen Sarutobi was puzzled.
Uchiha Tunan lowered his head and said sadly, “I… I am an ominous person, I’m a cursed child.”
“Father, Mother, Amao, Chiryu, Meinai, Grandpa Yuan Liang, Senior White Fang, Shinnosuke, and Asuma.”
“The people I cherish and respect will die one after another.”
Hiruzen Sarutobi raised his eyebrows slightly and shook his head, “Tunan, these things are all accidents. It has nothing to do with you.”
Uchiha Tunan opened his eyes, opened his Sharingan, and boundless Chakra flowed out.
“But what if i’m the cause of all this deaths?!” he shouted.
“In fact, I had long suspected this.”
“That’s why I purposely distanced myself from Kakashi, Minato Sensei, and Kushina.”
“After this incident in the Fire Capital, I am even more certain that I am an ominous person.”
“Hokage Sama, please do not come near me. I am afraid that one day you will…”
Hiruzen Sarutobi sensed Uchiha Tunan’s chakra, which was comparable to Jounin’s, and his eyes narrowed slightly.
Such a strong talent, which was far beyond Kakashi.
