Konoha Hypocrite - Chapter 117
At this time, in the Hokage’s office.
Hiruzen Sarutobi, Koharu, Homura, and Danzo were all sitting together to discuss the matter.
“Hiruzen, it has been two days, but the Anbu still hasn’t found out who the murderer is.”
“I suggest capturing the most suspicious Uchiha Tenzo and checking his memories.”
Hiruzen Sarutobi lowered his head and pondered. This was indeed the most powerful way to prove the innocence of the Great Elder. After all, the rumors in the village could no longer be suppressed.
Originally, he thought that he would find the real murderer behind the scenes very soon, but who would have thought that there was no clue at all.
If this goes on, he’s afraid it will affect his authority.
“Danzo, there is obviously something wrong with that footprint.”
“If it was really Uchiha Tenzo, he wouldn’t have left such an obvious mark.”
“You should be able to see that this is framing.”
As soon as his voice fell, the three people looked at Danzo.
Danzo was stunned, and his face showed some anger:
“Why are you looking at me like that? Are you suspecting me?”
“Hiruzen, Uchiha Tenzo is always against Konoha.”
“I think we can take this opportunity to see if he has any other questions.”
Hiruzen Sarutobi took a drag on his cigarette and said hesitantly,
“In a few more days, if we capture Uchiha now, I’m afraid it will cause a backlash from Uchiha’s clan.”
“At that time, things would become more complicated.”
Danzo immediately shouted, “Hiruzen, you have to know that the entire Konoha is talking about this matter.”
“If you don’t give the villagers an explanation, I’m afraid it will endanger your authority.”
“I think no matter what, you have to act, you have to come out. ”
Hiruzen Sarutobi pondered for a moment,
Spitting out a mouthful of smoke, he said in a clear voice, “Someone come.”
An Anbu pushed open the door and entered, kneeling on one knee and saying, “Hokage sama, what instructions do you have?”
“Go find Tunan.”
Danzo was surprised. “Hiruzen, why are you looking for that little brat Uchiha?”
Hiruzen Sarutobi shook the dust off his cigarette and said, “Tunan is my disciple. I need to ask for his opinion about the Uchiha clan.”
Danzo took a deep breath and felt that this old partner in front of him had become very strange.
“I found that you have been very strange recently. What is so important about that kid?”
“He is a member of the Uchiha Clan. When you took him as your disciple, I firmly opposed it.”
Hiruzen Sarutobi glanced at Danzo and lightly said: “He is my disciple, a genius of Konoha.”
Danzo’s eyes narrowed and he coldly said: “You don’t want him to be the Hokage in the future, do you?”
Hiruzen Sarutobi did not speak, but continued smoking.
Not long later, Uchiha Tunan arrived at the office.
“Teacher, what can I do for you?”
When Hiruzen Sarutobi saw Uchiha Tunan, a kind smile immediately appeared on his face.
“Tunan, after the investigation of the Anbu, the murder case of Uchiha’s clan is very likely to have something to do with your Great Elder.”
“I want to hear your opinion.”
When Uchiha Tunan heard this, he immediately became serious and said, “Teacher, life is of the utmost importance.”
“In the face of life, everyone is equal, regardless of whether it is Uchiha or the other villagers.”
“We should go all out and give the deceased family an explanation.”
“Otherwise, how can we face the will of fire that we have been holding on to?”
As soon as his voice fell, everyone in the Hokage’s office felt the hot will of fire rushing towards them.
It was suffocating.
Danzo was slightly stunned as he looked at Uchiha Tunan with a strange expression.
He muttered in his heart, Is it because the brainwashing ability of Hiruzen is too strong, or is this kid really stupid?
He immediately decided:
“Sarutobi, your disciple has already said so.”
“What are you hesitating for?”
“Tunan, right? You are very clever!”
Uchiha Tunan put his hands on his knees to Danzo and bowed deeply:
“Danzo-sama, I don’t do anything about this matter, it’s all your hard work.”
A stiff smile appeared on Danzo’s face, and he said meaningfully: “It’s not hard, everything is for Konoha.”
He really didn’t expect that Uchiha Tunan would stand firmly on the side of the higher-ups.
He didn’t even know what kind of attitude he should have towards Uchiha Tunan.
Hiruzen Sarutobi interrupted the conversation between the two and stood up. “Alright, gather the Anbu team. I will personally go to Uchiha’s clan to ask for people.”
Later, Hiruzen Sarutobi and Danzo went to Uchiha’s land together, followed by more than a dozen members of the Anbu.
As for Uchiha Tunan, he didn’t follow them because he was a member of the Uchiha Clan and didn’t want to have a conflict with the Great Elder.
Instead, he was wandering in Konoha, using the wind whisper to spread the news.
“What are you doing here? There’s a good show outside the Uchiha Clan.”
“The Hokage took his men to the land of Uchiha to arrest people.”
“The evidence is conclusive. The Great Elder is the real murderer behind the scenes.”
It was human nature to join in the fun, especially when they heard that the Hokage was leading the team.
Everyone did not feel that there was any danger and rushed to the land of Uchiha.
At this time, outside the gate of the Uchiha clan.
When the gatekeeper Uchiha saw Hiruzen Sarutobi coming with a group of Anbu members, he immediately bowed and said,
Danzo coldly snorted: “Tell Uchiha Tenzo to come out.”
Hiruzen Sarutobi coughed lightly and stood in front of the group. He revealed a gentle smile and said, “Go, call your Great Elder out. We want to talk to him.”
“Yes.” The guard did not dare to be negligent, so he hurriedly went to invite the Great Elder.
Not long later, the Great Elder and Uchiha Fuyue came together.
Behind them was a large group of Uchiha clansmen.
“What is the matter, Hokage?” The Great Elder stared at Hiruzen Sarutobi and Danzo.
The Great Elder had already guessed the purpose of Hiruzen Sarutobi’s visit, so he was a bit angry.
If today’s matter were to spread out, the people would know that the Hokage personally came to the mansion to denounce him, and his reputation would probably plummet.
He had nothing to do with it, mainly because this was a slap to the face of the number one clan in Konoha, the Uchiha clan.
Danzo immediately took a step forward and coldly said:
“Uchiha Tenzo, all the signs of the murder a few days ago pointed to you.”
“Now we have reason to suspect that in order for your grandson to awaken his Sharingan, you deliberately killed seven innocent lives.”
“So we want to check your memories.”
Hearing this, the Great Elder’s face became even more gloomy. He stared straight at Hiruzen Sarutobi and said, “Are you serious?”
Hiruzen Sarutobi sighed and said earnestly, “I believe in you very much.”
“But now the case is in a deadlock, and the only person who will benefit is your grandson.”
“So in order to prove your innocence, I specially invited Keita Yamanaka, the patriarch of the Yamanaka clan.”
“You can rest assured that Keita is a professional in this aspect and won’t hurt you much. ”
