Konoha Hypocrite - Chapter 114
After everyone left, the Great Elder took a deep breath and said to Uchiha Tunan,
“Tunan, Fuyue and I will continue to investigate the truth of this matter.”
“Take Shishui back first, and I will ask you to take care of Shishui tonight.”
Uchiha Tunan nodded and picked up the sobbing Uchiha Shishui. He patted her back and said,
“Shishui, let’s go home.”
A moment later, the candles in the ancestral hall lit up.
Uchiha Fuyue said softly,
“Great Elder, they are very emotional right now. Don’t worry too much about it.”
The Great Elder felt a headache coming on. He waved his hand and said, “I understand, but the most important thing now is to find the murderer.”
After he finished speaking, he frowned and seemed to be thinking about something.
Uchiha Tunan carried Shishui out of the ancestral hall and saw the parents carrying the child’s body in front of them.
Almost all of them were crying while holding their children, while their husbands comforted them.
Perhaps because of the sad atmosphere, Shishui, who was in his arms, also began to cry loudly.
Uchiha Tunan patted Shishui’s back with a distressed face and said, “Shishui, don’t be sad. It will be over after a nap.”
Shishui laid his head on Uchiha Tunan’s shoulder and wailed, “They are all dead…”
How could a little child endure such grief?
Uchiha Tunan sighed and held Shishui in his arms. “It’s fine. Be good and look into my eyes.”
He immediately activated his Hypnotic Eye.
“Go to sleep. You’ll be fine after a nap.”
Shishui looked at the three magatama in Uchiha Tunan’s eyes. His crying gradually disappeared and he slowly fell asleep.
After seeing that Shishui had fallen asleep, Uchiha Tunan once again held Shishui in his arms.
After walking past the intersection, Uchiha Tunan’s lips trembled slightly.
He began to use the sound transmission effect of Wind Whisper.
The next moment, he heard the whispers of the parents who had just parted ways behind him.
“Let’s go to the river to check it out later. There can’t be no clues.”
“This matter is very strange. We will go to the river later.”
“Yes, we will look for it before the official investigation took place.”
Late at night, the father of seven children quietly moved out and went to the river to search for clues at the same time.
“Did you find anything?”
“Let’s go upstream and downstream.”
Not long later, the parents gathered at the upstream bank of the river.
One by one, they opened their Sharingan and stared at the footprints on the ground.
The soil next to the footprints looked wet. It was obvious that it had been left not long ago.
“This should have been left in the recent period.”
“This footprint is a little small, which proves that the person is not tall.”
“Don’t you think that this size is very suitable for a person?”
“For his genius grandson, he sacrificed our children…”
At this time, several parents squatted on the ground and looked at each other. They all saw the hatred in each other’s eyes.
“I’ll go and fight him.”
As he spoke, a man broke into a run to argue.
“Wait a minute, it’s just a footprint. It doesn’t mean anything.” The man in the lead pulled him back.
“Have you ever thought that with the strength and carefulness of the Great Elder, how could he leave a footprint?”
“I think there is a possibility that someone wants to frame him.”
“Then how do you explain why the Great Elder suddenly took Shishui away?”
“Even if he wasn’t involved,”
“He must have hiding something.”
“But he only cared about his grandson.”
“Yes, maybe the Great Elder became careless, so he left footprints.”
“After all, it was just to deal with a group of children.”
“I think there is something strange about this. It is better for us not to be impulsive.”
“Have you ever thought that if it’s the Great Elder who did it, do you think we would be able to answer for this?”
“That’s right. In the eyes of the higher-ups in the clan, we are nothing more than trash with exhausted potential.”
“No one will speak up for us.”
At this point, the few of them lowered their heads, even regretting their abilities.
After a moment of silence, someone quickly said: “You guys stay here, I will go and ask the Hokage Sama.”
“You are crazy!”
“I am not crazy, I am a villager of Konoha.”
“My child is dead, what is the problem with talking about this tragedy with Hokage sama?”
Now these parents only wanted to seek justice for their child.
“The Hokage might not be able to interfere in this matter.”
“I have no other choice.”
“The one who died was Uchiha. We must find out the truth.”
“If it’s really done by the people of the clan, then he must die too.”
“This is the clan rule.”
“Didn’t you guys think that this was a trap?”
“That’s good, let the Hokage sama check it out, and at the same time give the Great Elder a clean slate.”
As soon as these words came out, all the parents seemed to have made up their minds.
“Well, I will pull down my face to find my former classmates.”
“I remember that he seems to have joined the Anbu.”
“He should be able to think of a way.”
“I don’t know anyone.”
“I will stay here to prevent the evidence from being destroyed.”
“I will stay too.”
Soon, these parents passed the news to the higher-ups of Konoha through various channels.
One of the parents asked his student for help.
However, he did not know that this student was not a member of the Anbu, but a member of the Root.
The higher-ups of Konoha seemed to realize that this was an opportunity, and they immediately sent a large number of people to the Uchiha clan.
After all, the Great Elder was a member of the Uchiha clan.
The higher-ups of Konoha really hoped that the Great Elder would fall in this matter.
As for Hiruzen Sarutobi, Danzo, and the others, they did not come.
Because according to the information, someone found the Great Elder’s footprints at the crime scene.
The two immediately believed that someone was framing them.
After all, they were all people of the same period, so they knew each other’s strength.
Killing a group of children was an easy job, it was impossible for him to leave the so-called footprints.
This time, they sent people to Uchiha’s territory just to disgust the Great Elder.
At the same time, they also wanted to test the attitude of Uchiha’s clan.
Because it was very likely that they would find out the real murderer behind the scenes in two days.
If they made a big move now, they would not be able to get out of the situation and lose face at that time.
