Konoha Hypocrite - Chapter 142
As soon as he finished speaking, the monks of Fire Temple put down their hands one after another, no longer having any intention of guarding against Uchiha Tunan.
Instead, they looked at Jigo.
In their opinion, Uchiha Tunan had almost no connection to this matter.
If Uchiha Tunan sent medicine to Jigo to force him to be charged, no one would agree.
Obviously, Uchiha Tunan had nothing to do with this matter, but he still harmed himself because of guilt.
He was even more furious and punished the guilty.
This was a true gentleman, a great good person!
If they still went against him, would they still be human?
And what about their abbot?
Compared to him, this abbot, whom they usually loved and respected, was indeed a little pedantic.
Not only did he protect the sinner, he even angered the grandmother of the deceased to death.
When Jigo saw the monks of Fire Temple looking at him with strange eyes, he subconsciously took two steps back.
Then he looked at the residents of Fenghuo Street behind him.
He saw that these residents looked at Uchiha Tunan with admiration and respect.
And there was a trace of disgust in their eyes.
No matter what it was, the thing they were most afraid of was comparing them.
At this moment, the boundary between good and evil seemed to become blurred.
It was as if Uchiha Tunan had become a chivalrous man who presided over justice for the weak.
And Jigo had become a dog of a ruler who didn’t know how to change.
At this moment, Jigo’s mind was in a mess, and he had great doubts about himself. His lips trembled slightly as he said, “Do you all think… I did something wrong…?”
Just like that, Uchiha Tunan had a knife stabbed into his body, allowing blood to flow continuously as he walked step by step towards the square.
The many monks that had surrounded him earlier,
Ranlan was silent. He lowered his hands and opened a path for himself.
Uchiha Tunan walked to Jigo’s side and said in a deep voice,
“Hypocrite is a great evil.”
“The Fire Temple’s reputation has been tarnished by you after a thousand years.”
After saying that, Uchiha Tunan endured the pain and bent over to carry the old woman and Naoko’s bodies on his left and right shoulders.
Under the admiring gazes of the crowd, he left Fire Temple.
* whoosh *
* whoosh *
Uchiha Tunan had a determined expression on his face as he carried the two corpses on his shoulders and walked on the steps with unsteady steps.
On the steps, the old monk who was sweeping the floor silently put away his broom when he saw Uchiha Tunan descend the mountain. He retreated to the side and pressed his palms together with his head lowered.
In the Fire Temple.
After Uchiha Tunan left, Jigo, whose mind was in a mess, only felt a little confused.
Fortunately, Ranlan, who was beside him, quickly supported him.
After a long time, Jigo raised his head and looked at the Buddha statue sitting in the main hall in front of him. His eyes flashed with sadness and guilt. He muttered,
“Ranlan, accompany me to the main hall.”
When the surrounding residents saw that the matter was over, they all sighed and left Fire Temple one after another.
However, when they arrived outside Fire Temple, they discovered that two corpses were placed just like that at the entrance of the temple.
As for Uchiha Tunan, he had already disappeared.
“What’s going on?”
“I don’t know.”
“Maybe it’s because the injuries are too severe. He can’t carry them anymore.”
“But you can’t leave the body here.”
“Do you have any conscience? How can someone leave the body here?”
“He must have thought of a way.”
“Don’t say anymore. Let’s carry the corpse first. We are neighbors, so it’s not good to trouble others.”
At this time, Jigo led the land and the two of them to the main hall.
Jigo pushed away the land and supported his hand. He came to the front of the Buddha statue and knelt down.
“Ranlan, do you think I was wrong?”
“I… I don’t know.”
“Maybe the death of the girl does not have much to do with me.*
“But the death of the old woman was indeed caused by me.”
“I am guilty.”
Jigo closed his eyes. His mind was filled with the gazes of the believers and disciples who were looking at him today.
“Abbot, please do not think this way.”
“Then do you think what I did was right?”
Seeing Ranlan’s indescribable appearance, a trace of understanding flashed through Jigo’s eyes.
“Ranlan, your talent and perception are the ones I favor the most.”
“My perception is too poor. I don’t understand the reason and don’t know the changes.”
I’m sorry Buddha, I’m sorry my grandfather and grandson, I’m sorry for the Fire Temple’s thousand years of reputation.”
“In the future, I’ll leave the Fire Temple to you.”
Ranlan was puzzled. “Abbot?”
But after a long time, Ranlan saw that Jigo had been sitting there with his legs crossed and did not reply.
He had a bad feeling in his heart. He reached out his trembling hand and touched Jigo’s nose.
At the same time.
In the forest in the wilderness.
Uchiha Tunan was carrying two corpses on his back as he continued to jump through the trees.
Suddenly, a strong warm current flowed into his limbs and bones from his body.
Uchiha Tunan quickly stopped and placed the two corpses on the ground. Then, he pulled out the short blade of chakra under his ribs.
For Uchiha Tunan who had rolled his eyes, he naturally knew which part of his body was the least fatal.
This injury looked scary, but in fact, it was not even a light injury.
Under the effect of this warm current, Uchiha Tunan could clearly feel that the wound was healing rapidly.
This kind of physique… Could it be related to the Senju or the Uzumaki Clan?
At the same time, many secret arts and Buddhist theories appeared in Uchiha Tunan’s mind.
Most of the secret arts were not very useful to Uchiha Tunan.
However, there were a few secret arts that made Uchiha Tunan extremely happy.
Especially the core cultivation secret arts of the Immortal Race!
At this moment, Uchiha Tunan understood what the Immortal Race was.
Immortal Race was actually not much different from immortal arts.
This world had experienced countless eras before the descent of the divine tree.
The previous world also possessed extraordinary power that was not inferior to chakra.
That was also the Force of Nature that was mentioned now.
The power of heat was a special power produced by nature, similar to the spiritual energy in Xianxia novels.
The power of nature gave birth to many monsters, as well as powerful humans.
The many psychic beasts nowadays were the descendants of those monsters.
In ancient times, after the divine tree was planted, all the creatures in the world were secretly planted with marks, and they could cultivate chakra.
However, they were unable to absorb the Force of Nature in nature.
Over time, most monsters would only instinctively absorb the Force of Nature to strengthen their bodies.
As for the monsters of the three holy lands, they used a special method to absorb the Force of Nature, combining it with their own Chakra to create the so-called Immortal Arts.
Immortal Arts Energy required cultivation.
For example, the immortal arts that Jiraya and the others learned were actually the mature immortal arts energy granted by the monster.
Rather than saying that they had activated the immortal mode, it was more accurate to say that they had obtained the power of the monster.
Those powers were not absorbed from the natural world, but were passed down to them by the monsters through the psychic ability.
This was also why their immortal arts could not be cultivated by themselves, and every time they transformed, they would show inhuman characteristics.
As for the geniuses of the celestial clan, it was a method that a genius human discovered to be able to use the power of nature.
Cultivating the secret arts of the celestial clan could open up an illusory space in the body, just like the so-called dantian in the previous life.
It could absorb the strong emotions of others and store them in it.
With the power of emotions in the illusory space as a guide, it could absorb the power of nature to combine and eventually form immortal energy exclusive to humans.
Even if this energy was not used normally, it could subtly strengthen a person’s physique.
When used, immortal energy could be combined with one’s own chakra and enter the immortal mode.
Because this immortal energy belonged to the human race, there would not be any changes in appearance after entering the immortal mode.
But the biggest limitation of this method was to absorb the emotions of others.
The power of emotions was extremely stable and was firmly locked onto by the physical body.
Only when one’s emotions were stable would they emit such a pitiful amount of emotion power for the people beside them to absorb.
However, Uchiha Tunan had inherited Jigo’s inheritance, and his body already possessed a considerable amount of immortal energy.
“Are you going to bury them here, the evil ninja youth.”
