Konoha Hypocrite - Chapter 119
A hint of confusion flashed through Hiruzen Sarutobi’s eyes. He sighed and said,
“If something similar happens again in the future, please inform the Anbu in time.”
“Fuyue, you understand?”
Uchiha Fuyue bowed to Hiruzen Sarutobi and said, “Yes, Hokage sama.”
Hiruzen Sarutobi waved his hand and said, “Let’s go, this matter ends here.”
As for who the murderer of this matter was, not many people would care.
After all, the Great Elder was already dead, so just treat him as the murderer.
It was time for the resentment of the villagers to stop.
Behind Hiruzen Sarutobi, Uchiha Tunan walked out from the crowd and said with a heavy face,
“Teacher, I want to send the Great Elder on his way.”
Hiruzen Sarutobi nodded and gently patted Uchiha Tunan on the shoulder.
“Go. I know you are soft-hearted. I will give you a day off tonight.”
“Thank you, teacher.”
The room of the Great Elder was full of people at this moment.
When Uchiha Tunan came in, the people around him all looked over.
Most of them had disgust in their eyes, as if Uchiha Tunan was an ominous person.
As for the rest, they all had indifferent expressions on their faces. These were the trusted subordinates that the Great Elder valued.
They already knew about Uchiha Tunan’s matter and remembered the Great Elder’s previous instructions. They could not give themselves away.
Shishui lay on the head elder’s body and kept sobbing. Gradually, the two magatama in Shishui’s eyes spun faster and turned into three magatama.
Then he fainted.
He was hugged by a middle-aged woman.
Uchiha Tunan came to the side of the man who was kneeling at the front and sighed,
The middle-aged man nodded, his face full of grief. He glanced at Uchiha Tunan and lowered his head, saying,
“Tunan-Kun, you can leave. This place… does not welcome you.”
Late at night.
Uchiha Tunan placed the carved sculpture of the Great Elder in its proper position.
He also lit three incense sticks for it.
Then, he poured a pot of tea into two teacups.
He placed a teacup in front of the wooden sculpture of the Great Elder.
Uchiha Tunan knelt in front of the wooden sculpture and used Wind Whisper and Byakugan to monitor the movements around the house.
He gently picked up the teacup and shook his head with a look of pity.
“Great Elder, if you don’t have the brain, don’t learn to play tricks in your next life.”
“Do you know why there is such a situation today?”
“Because you went the wrong way from the very beginning.”
“These few days, you actually wanted to capture the real murderer to prove your innocence.”
“It is too difficult to prove your innocence.”
“Your innocence is not important at all.”
“What others want is the most important thing.”
“Do you think those people who splash dirty water on you don’t know that you are wrong?”
“No, they know better than you how wrong you are.”
“Do you think those people who spread the rumors really can’t tell?”
“No, they only have the internal demands of spreading rumors.”
“It is very, very difficult to prove one’s innocence.”
“Because you have no way to wake up a group of people pretending to be asleep.”
“From the perspective of human nature, it is not that they believe in something that they spread.”
“It was because they wanted to express something that they chose to spread.”
“In this world, people never believed in their views.”
“Instead, people chose their views.”
“It was a case full of loopholes, so why did everyone choose to go against you?”
“Because this matter can satisfy their inner desires.”
“The civilians are dissatisfied with the imbalance of resources, and they like to have grudges in the rich.”
“The people are afraid that their descendants will become sacrifices for the geniuses.”
“The higher-ups of Konoha are worried that you, an old man, will not be stable.”
“These were all their inner desires.”
“There were too many people who couldn’t see the true you.”
“All the lines, rumors, and views were all appearances, and the inner desires were the essence.”
“They didn’t think that you were the murderer, but they subconsciously hoped that you were the murderer that was found out.”
“For civilians, they can’t become rich, so they can only hope that the life of the rich is complicated, so that they can improve their happiness.”
“For many people, they know that their children are most likely not geniuses, so they want to prove that your grandson is a genius, but they used dirty means.”
“On the contrary, Konoha’s higher-ups are the most innocent, and they want you to die.”
“You lost because you are not close enough to the important people, and you only care about the experts and geniuses of the clan.”
“I’ll give you one last lesson.”
“In your next life, it’s better to be a rash man.”
After saying that, the corners of Uchiha Tunan’s mouth curled up slightly. He chuckled and drank the tea in his cup.
“Good tea.” He smacked his lips and said.
A few days later.
At the Grand Elder’s funeral, Uchiha, Shishui, hugged the Great Elder’s wooden sculpture and cried his heart out.
Out of humanitarianism, Uchiha Tunan went forward to offer a bunch of flowers.
After all, after inheriting the other party’s inheritance, there was still a need to express something.
As a person, one must not forget their roots.
This bit of morality still had to be there.
In the following days, Uchiha Tunan learned ninjutsu from Hiruzen Sarutobi every day. At the same time, he waited for the welfare institute to come true.
That night, Uchiha Tunan was following Hiruzen Sarutobi in the backyard to learn ninjutsu.
“Zi, zi, zi —”
A huge rock beside the pond suddenly exploded, and the gravel fell into the pond next to it, causing a lot of water splashed.
Although Hiruzen Sarutobi knew Uchiha Tunan’s ability, he was still surprised to see such a scene.
He immediately looked at Uchiha Tunan, who was covered in electricity, and nodded with a face full of praise,
“Not bad, Tunan, your innate talent in ninjutsu is stronger than I thought.”
“This is the technique I saw on the battlefield that the 3rd Raikage used.”
“After coming back, I studied it for a long time, and only then did I imitate the compound ninjutsu.”
“Using lightning attribute chakra to stimulate the cells, increase movement speed and destructive power.”
“At the same time, use earth attribute chakra to wrap the fist, increase defense and gravity.”
“Although it is more complicated, the effect of using it will not be much weaker than Kumogakure’s lightning movement technique.”
Uchiha Tunan dispersed the lightning around his body and said to Hiruzen Sarutobi with a look of admiration,
“Teacher, you are really amazing. Two kinds of mutually restraining chakra can be fused together.”
“This method is so ingenious. If it were me, I would probably never even think of it in my lifetime.”
Uchiha Tunan’s eyes were bright, and he looked at Hiruzen Sarutobi with eyes full of worship.
Hiruzen Sarutobi was very happy to be praised like this. A proud smile flashed on his face, and he picked up the pipe,
“In the Ninja Realm, there is nothing that is impossible.”
“Unfortunately, after this move was developed, I have never had a real battle.”
“After a few years, I will be old, and I will have even less chance to use it.”
Uchiha Tunan came to Hiruzen Sarutobi’s side and used Fire Escape to light the cigarette for him.
Then he looked at Hiruzen Sarutobi with admiration and said,
“The hero’s sword will never get old.”
“Even if there is no war now.”
“Teacher, you are still the Ninja that makes all the big countries tremble in fear.”
Uchiha Tunan could be considered to be flattering him to the extreme, and all kinds of praise were being poured out.
Hiruzen Sarutobi smiled and laughed heartily.
“Hehe, don’t flatter me.”
“By the way, distribution of land in your welfare institute has already been determined.”
“After the residents there have been demolished, we can start work.”
Uchiha Tunan is very happy, his granary is finally about to start construction
He then took out his wallet from his ninja backpack, flipped through it, and then raised his hands horizontally, handing over the bank notes,
“Teacher, this is the six hundred million bank notes, please keep it.”
