Konoha Hypocrite - Chapter 106
After washing the dishes in the kitchen, Uchiha Tunan separated six shadow clones and started cleaning.
One could not be too honest.
When there was someone around, they paid attention to attitude.
When there was no one around, they paid attention to efficiency.
The leader is around, let him see you who work hard.
When he leaves and comes back, he finds that you have completed the task perfectly.
At this time, the leader will think about it himself and think that you have always completed the task with a serious and steady attitude.
His impression of you will naturally soar.
The six shadow clones were responsible for cleaning up the area.
Clean the ground, wipe the windows, clean up the debris, repair the court plant, and spray perfume.
Everything was in order.
There was even a shadow clone who washed Hiruzen Sarutobi’s clothes, whether they were clean or not.
He then pulled up a few clothings in the front yard and hung the clothes on it.
By the time everything was cleaned up, it was already past noon.
The noon sun hung directly above the sky, and the temperature also gradually rose.
Uchiha Tunan looked up, and his eyes were once again chased back by the dazzling sunlight.
Seeing that it was about time, he put away his shadow clone and left the Sarutobi Clan.
After a busy morning, Uchiha Tunan was already hungry. So, he casually ate something in the commercial street and walked toward Uchiha’s clan.
Uchiha Tunan had just arrived at the door when he saw the Great Elder standing at the door as if he had been waiting for a long time.
He turned to look at Uchiha Tunan and carefully sized him up.
It was as if he was his daughter, who did not return home at night.
“Great Elder, you are here.”
Uchiha Tunan generously accepted the Great Elder’s gaze and greeted him warmly.
The Great Elder nodded and said, “Yes.”
“Great Elder, please come in and sit.”
Uchiha Tunan opened the courtyard door and invited the Great Elder into the room.
As soon as the Great Elder sat down, he impatiently asked,
“This morning, Hiruzen Sarutobi announced that he would accept you as his disciple.”
“How did you do it?”
When the Great Elder received the news, he was shocked.
Uchiha Tunan brewed tea and replied in a puzzled tone, “Is it very strange?”
Great Elder took a deep breath and said with a serious face,
“Your talent is indeed very good. I wouldn’t be surprised if Hiruzen took you as a disciple in the past.”
“But his son just died. This is very strange. You have to be careful if he has some conspiracy.”
In the eyes of Great Elder, the Sarutobi clan was not a good example, and they also did not have a good face for Uchiha clan.
Therefore, regarding Hiruzen Sarutobi taking Uchiha Tunan as his disciple, it made him very suspicious.
Uchiha Tunan pushed the brewed tea in front of Great Elder and said with a faint smile, “Teacher took me as a disciple because I have all attributes of chakra.”
As he spoke, he gently patted the back of the Great Elder’s hand and comforted him, “You don’t have to worry about me.”
However, the Great Elder thought about it carefully and still felt that it was very suspicious. He used his finger to fiercely tap on the table a few times and emphasized again, “But his son just died.”
Uchiha Tunan chuckled and said slowly, “Maybe he treat me as a substitute.”
Hearing this, the Great Elder touched his chin and thought for a moment, “There is a possibility…”
In this case, as long as you have enough merits, that old guy Hiruzen might really support you to become the Hokage.
The Sarutobi Clan plus the Inoshikachou, and our Uchiha…
Good, good, good…
The more the Great Elder thought about it, the more excited he became. He picked up the teacup and drank it.
The hot tea made the Great Elder speechless.
He hurriedly put down the teacup, so hot that tears came out.
Uchiha Tunan gently blew on the tea in front of him and asked casually,
“Right, did the Great Elder tell the other clansmen about me?”
The Great Elder was slightly stunned when he heard this, and then he smiled, “Last time, I was just testing you. How could I tell anyone about this?”
This old fellow seems to be preparing to use this secret as a trump card to pinch me.
Uchiha Tunan narrowed his eyes due to the hot steam coming from the tea.
Then he said with a sincere face,
“It’s fine, Great Elder can tell a few young clansmen with potential.”
“In the future, when my wings are full, they can become my left and right arms.”
“As for the elders who are too old, don’t let them worry about this.”
The Great Elder raised his eyebrows and said in surprise, “You really think so?”
Uchiha Tunan smiled and picked up the teapot to make tea in the Great Elder’s teacup.
“I have never lied in front of you.”
The Great Elder recalled and nodded slightly.
“Alright, I won’t stay here any longer.”
“In the future, the Uchiha clan will depend on you.”
Uchiha Tunan pointed at the teacup in front of the Great Elder and said, “Great Elder, are you not going to leave after drinking?”
The Great Elder stood up and waved his hand. “No, this is a critical time. It is not good for me if I stay here for too long.”
Great Elder also knew that the situation was different now.
With Uchiha Tunan around, as long as he became the Hokage.
They could strengthen Uchiha without spilling blood.
For the future of the Uchiha clan.
First Elder still knew that he had to grasp his limits.
He could not be too close to Uchiha Tunan.
With this in mind, Great Elder turned to leave.
Suddenly, Uchiha Tunan said in a deep voice,
“Great Elder, perhaps, you should be more concerned about Shishui.”
The Great Elder stopped in his tracks and turned around with a puzzled expression. “What has it got to do with Shishui?”
Uchiha Tunan said with a serious face, “Shishui has a talent that surpasses mine.”
The Great Elder was slightly stunned. After a moment, he asked with a doubtful expression, “Is what you said true?”
Uchiha Tunan nodded solemnly and pointed to his eyes.
“I’m about to reach that realm.”
“That’s why I can sense Shishui’s great potential. He is more likely to awaken than me.”
When the Great Elder heard this, a hint of surprise flashed in his eyes. He immediately took a deep breath and nodded repeatedly, “Alright, I understand.”
With that, he walked out with his hands behind his back.
The Great Elder believed at least seventy percent of Uchiha Tunan’s words.
It was because there was no need for Uchiha Tunan to lie to him at all.
It seemed that after going back, he would have to focus on Shishui’s training.
Uchiha Tunan knew that it was very difficult for him to rely on the so-called emotional fluctuations to upgrade his Sharingan.
But he had a system.
As long as he obtained Shishui’s approval, after he opened the Mangekyou…
Of course, Uchiha Tunan also had another route, which was to rely purely on eye power to breakthrough.
To be on the safe side, Uchiha Tunan planned to take two routes at the same time.
After all, these two routes did not conflict, and could even complement each other.
In this way, he would get twice the result with half the effort.
