Konoha Hypocrite - Chapter 132
The death of Uchiha Jiro also gave Uchiha Tunan a sense of crisis.
In Konoha, who would dare to make a move against Jounin?
It could only be Danzo and Orochimaru.
For the time being, there was no need to worry about Danzo investigating the memories of these people.
After all, human experiments were of great importance, and the group was full of doubts. They would definitely only let those confidants know about these things.
From the destruction of the corpses after digging the eyes, there should be no ninjas from the mountain clan in here.
However, Uchiha Tunan did not dare to let down his guard for things that he was not sure of.
There were only two choices now, one was to secretly kill those Uchiha clansmen who knew his secrets.
The benefit of doing so was to prevent future troubles.
But the disadvantages were obvious. Unless he killed everyone in one go.
Otherwise, they would most likely suspect him and spread the news a second time.
At that time, it would be a big trouble.
It was too difficult to kill the dozen or so three tomoe Uchiha scattered in Konoha within a certain period of time without leaving any traces behind.
The other choice was to wait and let Orochimaru and the others kill Uchiha’s people, and then secretly pay attention to whether they had destroyed the corpses or not.
If they did not destroy the corpses, they would either make up for it themselves or chase after them.
But the consequence was that it was very likely that he would have to face one of the three ninjas that made the world tremble.
Not to mention winning against Orochimaru, the most important thing was that once they became hostile, it was the biggest problem whether they would be killed or not.
If they could not be killed, but if they won, it was estimated that the battle would attract a lot of people.
No matter how Hiruzen Sarutobi treated Orochimaru, he would be crowned with the title of the new generation of geniuses in Konoha.
This was equivalent to putting himself in the spotlight, and it would be difficult for him to move in the future.
Both methods were too risky.
Uchiha Tunan put down the book, took a sip of tea, and rubbed his temples.
Recently, there had been a lot of things to do, which made people feel a little mentally and physically haggard.
He finally felt that he could take a break, but there were always people who intentionally or unintentionally made things difficult for him.
Uchiha Tunan took a deep breath and went to the window to look at the night sky in deep thought.
The lotus-like clouds dispersed, and the moon was like a shining round mirror, as pure and flawless as Uchiha Tunan’s heart at the moment.
Suddenly, Uchiha Tunan looked at the bright round moon, and a similar thing appeared in his mind.
The dawn broke through the sky and awakened the sleeping land.
A new day came.
Uchiha Tunan packed up his things and lit three sticks of incense for the wooden sculptures on the altar.
“If this trip goes smoothly, I will send a highly respected person down to accompany you.”
Half an hour later, Uchiha Tunan came to the Hokage building alone.
When Hiruzen Sarutobi saw Uchiha Tunan, he was obviously stunned for a moment. He asked with a puzzled face,
“Tunan, why are you here? Didn’t I give you a holiday?”
Uchiha Tunan pursed her lips and said weakly, “Teacher, I feel a little tired recently. I want to go out for a tour. Is that okay?”
Generally speaking, Konoha Ninjas were not allowed to leave the village unless they accepted a mission.
However, the rules were set by people, and some identities could easily break the rules.
Hiruzen Sarutobi frowned slightly when he heard that. He took a puff of his cigarette and said, “Where are you going to travel?”
Uchiha Tunan thought for a moment and said, “Let’s go around and pick up those orphans. After all, the orphanage is almost here.”
Hiruzen Sarutobi nodded and said with a slightly serious expression, “Tunan, there are some things I need to tell you.”
Seeing Hiruzen Sarutobi’s expression, Uchiha Tunan immediately said with a serious face, “Teacher, please speak.”
“Konoha is a Ninja Village. If you don’t have enough qualifications to enter Konoha, you need to pay a huge fee.” Hiruzen Sarutobi said earnestly.
If it’s one or two people, I can help you save the money.
But there are too many people, and I can’t break the rules.
Uchiha Tunan nodded and whispered, “Teacher, is my money enough?”
Hiruzen Sarutobi said in a low voice, “It is enough for now, but once the fee is paid, there is not much money left.”
Uchiha Tunan narrowed his eyes and smiled, “It doesn’t matter. We can still think of a way if we lose the money. If we keep them in Fire Capital for a long time, no one will care about them.”
After all, it was almost time. The chronic poison that was given to the main tree last time should be about to take effect.
Once the main tree died, no one would take care of those orphans.
Uchiha Tunan thought in his heart.
A trace of pain flashed through Hiruzen Sarutobi’s eyes, and he sighed and said, “Tunan, you are not only my disciple, but also my own child in my eyes.”
“There are some things I have to tell you. We are forbearance. Kindness is not wrong, but we can’t sacrifice ourselves for kindness.”
Uchiha Tunan was stunned and said, “But, the will of fire is not teaching us…”
Before he could finish, he was interrupted by Hiruzen Sarutobi.
“Tunan! The will of fire allows us to have good qualities and protect our village.”
“We must always remember the ancestors who sacrificed themselves for the village and cherish the hard-won peace.”
“It is not to encourage everyone to do fearless sacrifices.”
“The Ninja Realm is too big. Our strength is limited. The first thing we need to do is to take good care of our companions in the village.”
Uchiha Tunan immediately lowered his head and said in a deep voice, “I understand. It seems that my knowledge has always been a little biased.”
Hiruzen Sarutobi narrowed his eyes. No one knew what he was thinking. After a long time, he continued,
“There is one more thing I want to tell you. You can go anywhere you want to play. Don’t go to the Fire Capital.”
As he spoke, Hiruzen Sarutobi leaned forward slightly and said with a serious face,
“During this period of time, I have sent three Anbu members to the Fire Capital to investigate, and none of them survived.”
Uchiha Tunan was shocked when he heard this and said in disbelief, “Did they want to be enemies with Konoha?”
Hiruzen Sarutobi shook his head and said,
“It’s not what you think.”
“The ninjas on the surface are fine.”
“Anyway, this matter is very complicated, and the most critical problem is likely to be inside the village.”
“However, these things are not something you can get involved in right now.”
“You just need to remember not to go to the Fire Capital.”
“As for those orphans, I will forget about them this time, and I will not stop you.”
“In a few days, I will issue a task for you and send a team of Ninjas to bring them to Konoha.”
“By the way, you still have to remember one thing. In the upper echelons of Konoha, you must not believe anyone except me.”
“Including Danzo and the two Hokage consultants.”
Uchiha Tunan replied with a serious face: “Yes.”
He had also finished explaining what he needed to say.
Hiruzen Sarutobi took out a certificate, filled in Uchiha Tunan’s information, and then stamped it.
He handed the certificate to Uchiha Tunan and said,
“Go ahead and pass this to the registration staff at the entrance of the village.”
“You are my disciple. You don’t need to register when you leave the village.”
“When you go out to relax, pay attention to safety.”
Uchiha Tunan took the certificate and bowed deeply to Hiruzen Sarutobi.
“Then I’ll take my leave. Teacher, you must take care of yourself when I’m not around.”
A kind smile appeared on Hiruzen Sarutobi’s face. He waved his hand and said,
“You don’t have to worry about me. Come back after you have fun outside.”
