Konoha Hypocrite - Chapter 115
Tonight was destined to not be a peaceful night.
The entire Uchiha clan was filled with noise.
Especially outside the gate of the Uchiha clan, after a period of conflict, the entire Uchiha clan seemed to be unguarded.
From time to time, there were people passing by the road inside the clan.
Almost all of them were from the Anbu, the garrison guard, the families of the deceased, the upper echelons of Konoha, and Uchiha.
Many of the clansmen had come together to discuss.
In the living room under the warm yellow light.
Uchiha Tunan held the sleeping Shishui and sat at the door of the room, looking at the stars in the sky.
The stars in the sky echoed the cries of insects on the land, adding a layer of dreamy filter to this scene.
A moment later, Uchiha Tunan lowered his head and reached out to pinch Shishui’s chubby face. The corners of his mouth revealed a smile.
There was one thing that Uchiha Tunan did not lie about. He really liked Shishui, this silly child.
He had the innocence and liveliness of an Asura, and his bloodline inherited the stubbornness of the Uchiha clan.
He was silly and easy to deceive.
His eyes were also bright, full of the innocence of a child, which made it hard to dislike.
Shishui was pinched by Uchiha Tunan, turned his head over, smacked his mouth twice, and then continued to sleep.
Time passed by bit by bit.
Uchiha Tunan listened to the crying, deep voice, and angry curses in his ears and felt a little annoyed.
So he took the initiative to release the Wind Whisperer.
At this moment, Shishui slowly woke up. He reached out and rubbed his eyes, as if he had forgotten what had happened before.
Looking at Uchiha Tunan, who was close to him with a gentle expression, he shouted weakly, “Tunan!”
Uchiha Tunan smiled gently and stroked the back of Shishui’s head in his arms. “You’re awake. Do you feel uncomfortable sleeping here?”
Shishui shook his head obediently and looked around. He said in a panic, “Where’s Grandfather?”
Uchiha Tunan helped Shishui sit up and said gently, “The Great Elder is handling some matters.”
Shishui seemed to have remembered what had happened before. His mouth shriveled and tears filled his eyes.
He could not accept losing his playmate when he was young.
Uchiha Tunan quickly comforted,
“Shishui, be good. A man don’t cry.”
When Shishui heard this, he blinked hard and held back the tears that were about to spill out. He said, “But…”
Seeing that Shishui was about to lose control, Uchiha Tunan shook his head and carried him into the living room.
He came to the place where the wooden sculpture was enshrined and said,
“Come, which one do you want to play?”
Shishui wiped away her tears and looked at the lifelike wooden sculpture. She said, “Tunan, who are these people?”
Uchiha Tunan sighed and recalled the past. “These are the people I once cherished, but they are all dead.”
In the past, he had such a wonderful childhood, but in the end, it all became illusions.
It could only be said that he had no choice but to make a fool of others.
When Shishui heard this, he was stunned. He stared at Uchiha Tunan with a sad face and said,
“Tunan, do you have any friends here?”
Uchiha Tunan nodded gently.
“Yes, look at this. This is Amao. He used to be very good to me.”
“He took care of me since i was still a child.”
“Just like you and I.”
Shishui pursed his lips and suppressed the grief in his heart. He comforted Uchiha Tunan, “Tunan, don’t be sad.”
Uchiha Tunan smiled and shook his head,
“I’m fine. Love will not disappear. It will only continue to pass on.”
“Just like Amao, although he died.”
“But I will inherit everything from him,”
“Take good care of the juniors.”
“Shishui, who is the person you cherish the most?”
Shishui thought for a moment and said, “Grandfather.”
Uchiha Tunan nodded and revealed a warm smile.
“Then I’ll teach you how to carve wood. Carve down the person you cherish the most. This way, you can accompany him forever.”
“Okay —” Shishui nodded heavily.
Uchiha Tunan put Shishui down and took a few pieces of wood from the room.
Then, he took out two pieces of Kunai from his ninja bag and handed it to Shishui.
“Come, follow me and carve.”
Shishui took the Kunai and began to seriously learn how to carve.
Uchiha Tunan deliberately slowed down so that Shishui could keep up.
Shishui learned Uchiha Tunan’s movements and became more and more skilled.
An hour later, the sky had already turned slightly white.
Both of them were holding a lifelike wooden sculpture in their hands, and both of them looked like Great Elders.
Uchiha Tunan reached out his hand and rubbed Shishui’s hair. He said,
“The carving is very good, just like a real person.”
Shishui did not seem so sad after hearing the praise. He looked at the wooden carving in his hand and raised his head.
“I still want to carve. My friends are dead. I want to carve one for them.”
At this moment, the Great Elder’s tired voice came from outside.
“Shishui, time to go home.”
When Uchiha Tunan heard this, he stuffed a few pieces of wood into Shishui’s ninja backpack and said,
“These pieces of wood are for you. You can carve them at home when you have time.”
Shishui said gratefully, “Thank you, Tunan.”
“Silly child.” Uchiha Tunan tapped his finger on Shishui’s forehead lovingly.
Shishui held his forehead in pain, but a silly smile appeared on his face.
“Ding! Obtain the recognition of Uchiha Shishui.”
The corners of Uchiha Tunan’s mouth curled up slightly. He held Shishui’s hand and brought him to the gate of the courtyard, handing him over to the Great Elder.
The Great Elder nodded at Uchiha Tunan and said, “Tunan, I’ve troubled you last night.”
The Great Elder had been busy all night and had no time to take care of the water. In a moment of desperation, he entrusted Shishui to Uchiha Tunan.
Uchiha Tunan touched Shishui’s head and shook his head. “Great Elder is too polite. Shishui is very obedient and cute. I have always regarded him as my younger brother.”
The Great Elder suddenly saw the wooden sculpture in Shishui’s hand. He could not help but ask, “Shishui, what is this?”
Shishui quickly raised the wooden sculpture and waved it in front of the Great Elder. “This is what I carved. Grandfather, do you think it looks like you?”
The Great Elder’s mouth twitched slightly. He had seen these wooden sculptures in Uchiha Tunan’s house.
The people carved on them were all dead.
However, thinking that this was the way his grandson expressed his love for him, he could not blame him.
“Yes, i looks exactly like me…”
The Great Elder raised his head and said to Uchiha Tunan in a deep voice,
“Then we will leave first. In the future, when you have time, take care of Shishui more.”
“I may be a little busy recently, so I can only send Shishui back to his parents.”
After saying this, he took Shishui and left.
