Konoha Hypocrite - Chapter 145
A moment later, the white light dissipated, and Jiji half-knelt in front of the old woman.
The Dharma Idol behind him stretched out thousands of arms to protect Jiji, the old woman, and the corpse of Naoko on the ground.
It was obvious that the Acala Dharma Idol was very illusory after being bombarded, and it seemed that it would collapse and dissipate in the next moment.
“Pa, pa, pa…”
The lightning around Uchiha Tunan dispersed, and his eyes regained the color of a human. He was clapping there.
“He really is an accomplished monk.”
As soon as he finished speaking.
Suddenly, there was a sharp pain in the chest of Jiji. He opened his eyes and lowered his head in disbelief.
He saw that the old woman who had just come back to life had turned into the appearance of Uchiha Tunan. He was inserting his hand into his chest and pinching his heart.
Naoko’s body turned into a ball of white smoke and disappeared.
Jiji opened its eyes wide and said, “Impossible, even… a clone can sense evil thoughts…”
However, Uchiha Tunan would not waste time explaining to a person who was about to die.
Uchiha Tunan slowly pulled out the heart of Jiji.
Jiji closed his eyes and fell to the ground.
Without the support of immortal arts energy, his body suddenly withered and withered, like a thousand-year-old corpse lying in a coffin.
The four kagebunshin that activated the barrier all disappeared, and the golden barrier disappeared.
Uchiha Tunan’s true body slowly walked over from the distance, took the heart from the kagebunshin’s hand and examined it.
The heart of Jiji seemed to be still beating unwillingly.
Because of the consumption of chakra and the side effects of Thunder God’s soul, a smile appeared on Uchiha Tunan’s face that was as pale as gold paper.
The heart was ruthlessly crushed.
The Instant Clone also removed itself.
The dark clouds gradually dispersed, revealing a crack. A ray of sunlight shot out from it and shot directly at Uchiha Tunan.
The area covered by the enchantment previously was barren, and outside the enchantment, there was still the sound of birds singing and the fragrance of flowers, full of vitality.
Groups of white pigeons flew over from all directions, as if they were celebrating their victory. One by one, they shed their white feathers and threw themselves at the spoils of war.
Without the barrier, a cold autumn wind blew over, bringing up yellow leaves.
In the autumn wind, the leaves swayed aimlessly, swirling in the coolness.
After a long time, the black birds that had eaten their fill once again put on their white feather clothes and left with a loud cry.
A withered leaf drifted along with the wind, and finally, it spun and floated down from the top of Uchiha Tunan’s head.
Uchiha Tunan narrowed his eyes and opened his palm.
The moment the leaf was about to touch his palm, Uchiha Tunan’s figure suddenly disappeared.
In fact, on the first day Uchiha Tunan came to the Fire Temple, he was already wary of Jiji.
After all, the Fire Temple was the Ninja Temple, and every monk had extraordinary combat strength.
Uchiha Tunan did not believe that an old monk could be so weak.
Besides, this was a tradition of Buddhism, and generally, the strongest were the executor monks.
Since Jigo had cultivated the Heart’s Eye, there was no reason for this executor monk to not know it.
Therefore, when Uchiha Tunan walked out of the Fire Temple, he used the Instant Clone Technique to split up two clones.
One instant clone used the Transformation Technique to transform into the appearance of an old woman, while the other instant clone transformed into the appearance of Naoko.
Moreover, Uchiha Tunan’s main body used the Hypnotic Eye Illusion on the two clones.
The hypnotic mark was that when the avatar saw the other avatar, the fire of the soul would bloom in the heart to dispel the darkness.
After all, the mind information of the physical kagebunshin was not the same as the main body. To a certain extent, it was similar to an independent life form.
The two kagebunshin had been staring at each other from beginning to end, maintaining eye contact at all times.
The heart’s eye was a special perception secret technique that could sense the evil thoughts around it.
But when there was no evil intention, he would not be able to sense anything.
In addition, Jiji had always been focusing on Uchiha Tunan, so they did not think too much about it.
The power of the thousands of hands that combined attack and defense was truly terrifying.
They were actually only able to form a stalemate with the other party.
If it really was a fair battle, even if Uchiha Tunan could win, it would probably be a tragic victory.
The size of Chakras was large, and the spiritual force was strong. However, the power of Ninjutsu was slightly greater, and the battle lasted longer.
The more Ninjutsu one knew, the more means one had to use against enemies.
At the level of Jiji and Uchiha Tunan, to form a crushing situation, it still depended on the ultimate moves and methods.
Half a month later.
The first heavy snow of the Konohagakure descended this year.
“Ding, ding, ding…”
The wind chimes under the eaves swayed in the cold wind.
The feather-like snow drifted down from the sky like silver flowers and white butterflies.
The trees in the courtyard were stripped off in winter and stood there bare, enduring the cold of the harsh winter.
Uchiha Tunan sat by the stove and reached out to pick up the hot milk bottle. He pecked it with his mouth and tested the temperature.
A little higher than the temperature of the human body, just right.
Then he looked at the baby in the swaddling clothes in his arms and put the milk bottle in.
The baby instinctively opened his small mouth, greedily sucking the milk.
After the baby was full, Uchiha Tunan carefully put it in the cradle.
The shadow clone took care of it.
The real body walked out of the room and stood in the courtyard, his hands behind his back as he looked into the distance.
It was so cold that even the setting sun seemed to have changed color due to loneliness, turning into an empty and desolate grayish-white color.
After taking care of Jiji, Uchiha Tunan had obtained his own Immortal Technique, and his strength had greatly increased, so he returned to Konoha.
However, on the day he returned to the village, Hiruzen Sarutobi told him a few pieces of news.
The good news was that the welfare home had been built, sitting in the most prosperous position in Konoha, and the area was about the same as the Ninja School.
However, there were two bad news.
One was the information brought back by the ninja who went to the Fire Capital.
Naraku, that guy, has established an adoption system in the Fire Capital, and does not agree to send back the orphans that Uchiha Tunan had adopted.
The second is the problem with the orphanage.
The orphanage has always been handed over to Koharu. Hiruzen Sarutobi wants to disperse the orphanage and hand all the orphans inside to Uchiha Tunan.
However, this matter was opposed by Danzo, and at the same time, Koharu and Homura expressed their support for Danzo.
The reason was that these orphans were the descendants of heroes and should be supervised and raised by the village to avoid accidents.
Hiruzen Sarutobi could not find any faults with this reason, so he could only give up.
And now it was a peaceful period, and the youngest orphan in the war period was four or five years old.
And the orphans who reached this age, with enough talent, entered the Ninja School, and those who were not talented began to help the various departments of the village.
Especially the big families in Konoha, whether they were orphans or old people, they were determined to be supported by the clan.
Uchiha Tunan only recruited a dozen ordinary old people.
They were given free food and drinks every day, as if they were serving the lord.
As for the orphans, they were only the ones in the cradle in the house.
His father was Chuunin from a small family. Three years ago, he passed away due to a mission.
His mother was a commoner, and when she gave birth to him, she died.
Because of all kinds of ethics and morals, the baby’s family refused to raise him, so he was taken over by Uchiha Tunan.
He didn’t expect that because of his arrival, Hiruzen Sarutobi, the Hokage, was suppressed by Danzo.
He really didn’t know what to say.
It seemed that he needed to find an opportunity to show the role of his adopted son to fight for the right to speak for Father Ape.
Otherwise, the welfare institute would be useless. Not only would it not become his help, but it would also become his burden.
More importantly, there was still about a year before the third battle.
In case Hiruzen Sarutobi completely lost his power, once he went to the battlefield, he might not only face the enemy, but also the traitor.
Hiruzen Sarutobi had the heart to deal with the Ninjas in the village, but how could he be merciful to Danzo and the two Hokage advisers?
Uchiha Tunan sighed helplessly, deeply worried about the prosperity and stability of Konoha.
