Konoha Hypocrite - Chapter 147
Everyone accompanied Uchiha Tunan to chat with the elderly in the sunset building to relieve their boredom.
Of course, Uchiha Tunan would not often let them come here.
Every now and then, they would ask Hiruzen Sarutobi to ask the children of the Ninja School to come over and do charity activities.
After all, they were only tools that Uchiha Tunan used to please the old people.
If they were allowed to appear in front of the old people often, it would probably affect their recognition.
Even if these old people did not have the strength or skills.
But it doesn’t matter. Everyone has value, regardless of age or age.
It’s good that they are old. When Uchiha Tunan has time, he will teach these old people such as zither, chess, calligraphy, and painting.
Let them have something to do.
For them, since there is nothing to do every day, it is better to play chess in the world.
Although these skills could not enhance Uchiha Tunan’s strength, it was better than nothing.
When it was almost time, the old people fell asleep under the care of Uchiha Tunan.
Minato and his group left the welfare home.
Uchiha Tunan returned to his room alone, came to the table and made himself a pot of tea.
He looked at the shadow clone who was still holding Little Yan and walking back and forth in the room.
Uchiha Tunan rubbed his temples, feeling a little annoyed.
If this welfare institute wanted to be of use, it would have to wait until the war started.
Before that, he had to first help the Hokage suppress Konoha’s territory.
As long as Sarutobi had power, he could disband the orphanage before the war started.
There was another problem, which was the Ninja Clan.
Now was a peaceful era, and the Ninja Clan had a lot of money, so it was no problem to raise a few orphans.
But looking at the policy that Naraku implemented, the economy of Konoha would collapse sooner or later. As long as the war broke out, the number of orphans would increase.
Those ninjas might not be able to handle it.
Hmm… I still need to plan for the future.
The welfare of the welfare institute must be good and this kind of good must be seen by everyone and spread out.
Especially the nurturing of children.
If a few geniuses appeared in his own welfare institute…
The Ninja Clan might still have some misgivings. After all, it was a family clan.
It was impossible for them to tolerate their own bloodline wandering outside.
Therefore, his welfare institute was only responsible for raising them. When the age arrived, the Ninja Clan could bring the child back.
But if they did not pay, it would cause people to be suspicious. After all, the people in power of the Ninja Clan all knew this principle.
There was no such thing as a free lunch in the world.
But it was probably impossible for them to pay the money.
Suddenly, a word flashed through Uchiha Tunan’s mind.
Exceeding the consumption.
The welfare institute can promise to the outside world that after the child is cultivated into a ninja.
In the future, the reward for a child carrying out a mission must be returned to the welfare institute in a certain proportion.
When the amount reached a certain level, the two would no longer have anything to do with each other.
Thinking of this, the corners of Uchiha Tunan’s mouth curled up slightly. He picked up the teacup and took a sip.
The next day.
It snowed again in the middle of the night last night.
The heavy snow was more than half a foot thick, and the world was now covered in fog.
After feeding Little Yan the morning milk, Uchiha Tunan separated two shadow clones.
One shadow clone took care of Little Yan Bo, and the other shadow clone was responsible for taking care of the dozen or so old people in the welfare institute.
The main body put on a white windbreaker and left the room.
In the house closest to the gate of the courtyard, Might Dai and Guy had already moved in.
The two of them started to dig the snow with their hands early in the morning.
“Guy! Burning youth is not afraid of the cold.”
Uchiha Tunan glanced at them from afar and did not disturb them. He quietly stepped on the snow and left the orphanage.
In the Hokage building.
The atmosphere in the conference room was solemn.
Danzo sat opposite Hiruzen Sarutobi, his fingers tapping the table:
“Hiruzen, this is the great request.”
As you can see, the economy of the Fire Country is growing rapidly under the control of the famous government.
Therefore, we must pay enough attention to the honor of the five major countries, Chuunin.
Hiruzen Sarutobi took a drag of the cigarette and frowned. “We can’t let Tunan go. It’s not like you don’t know about those things.”
Danzo leaned forward slightly and said aggressively, “Hiruzen, you are the Hokage, so you should give priority to the village.”
“His name was Uchiha Tunan.”
“His strength, identity, and reputation in the Fire Capital.”
“No matter how you looked at it, he was the best candidate.”
Hiruzen Sarutobi exhaled a puff of smoke and looked straight at Danzo. A trace of anger appeared on his face as he said,
“Anyone else can do it, but Tunan can’t.”
“Shinnosuke and Asuma are both dead. Do you want my disciples to take the risk?”
Seeing that the atmosphere was a little tense, Homura said in a soft voice,
“Danzo, Shinnosuke’s matter is over.”
It can only be said that he participated in that vortex.
He became a victim of a political struggle.
As for the matter of Asuma, his name has already been declared.
It has nothing to do with him.
“It is estimated that the enemy village spies are adding fuel to the fire. You can’t fall into the enemy’s trap.”
Hiruzen Sarutobi glanced at Homura, then looked at Danzo and shouted angrily,
“Danzo, don’t force me. I only indulge you because we are companions.”
“Do you think I don’t know that you have been secretly in contact with Daimyo?”
“Do you think I don’t know that you have received a huge amount of funds?”
Danzo seemed to be greatly wronged when he heard that. He said in disbelief,
“Hiruzen, how can you slander me like this?”
“Everything I did was for Konoha.”
“Since you don’t agree, then let’s vote. ”
Homura hesitated for a moment, then coughed and said:
“Hiruzen, now your name has been inherited.”
“Moreover, from his attitude, he was not willing to go against Konoha.”
“Even his support for Konoha has increased a lot during this period of time.”
“The other side is already showing goodwill, and we should look forward.”
“We know that you can’t put your heart at ease with Tunan.”
“But why don’t you think about it, what reason does your name have to be against Tunan?”
He looked at Danzo and Homura.
Hiruzen Sarutobi’s face was completely black, and he said in a bad tone,
“What you mean is that you support Danzo.”
“Koharu, what about you?”
Koharu secretly glanced at the confident Danzo and did not dare to look at Hiruzen Sarutobi in the eye. He whispered, “I will remain neutral.”
When Hiruzen Sarutobi heard this, his hand that was holding the pipe suddenly tightened.
At this moment.
“Clang, clang, clang.”
Someone knocked on the door of the conference room.
Hiruzen Sarutobi asked coldly, “Who is it?”
However, the trusted Anbu outside replied,
“Hokage Sama, Orochimaru san is here.”
Hiruzen Sarutobi narrowed his eyes and immediately thought of something. He said in a clear voice, “Let him in.”
Orochimaru, who was wearing a ninja vest, entered the conference room with a faint smile on his face.
He glanced at the people in the conference room, then fixed his eyes on Hiruzen Sarutobi. He smiled and said,
“Teacher, it seems that I came at a bad time.”
Hiruzen Sarutobi said with a warm face, “No, you came at the right time.”
After that, he said to Danzo and the others,
“I think Orochimaru has the right to count on that matter.”
“After all, Orochimaru’s achievements are right there. What do you think?”
Before Homura and Koharu could say anything, Danzo took the initiative to agree:
“I have no objections. I think that whether it is in terms of seniority or strength, Orochimaru is completely qualified to participate in the high-level decisions.”
Danzo agreed so readily, which made Hiruzen Sarutobi, who was originally full of confidence, have a hint of doubt.
However, he still began to explain to Orochimaru:
“Orochimaru, this is what happened.”
“TheDaimyo is going to hold a Five Nation Youth Competition in the Fire Capital to demonstrate the national strength.”
“He also asked Tunan to represent the Fire Nation.”
“I think that Tunan is not mature enough, and he is not a suitable candidate.”
“I don’t know what your opinion is.”
Orochimaru was not surprised at all. He thought for a moment and said:
“Tunan? I think Tunan is your disciple, and he is the number one genius in Konoha.”
“No one is more suitable than Tunan.”
Hiruzen Sarutobi’s eyes narrowed, and he continued to prompt:
“Orochimaru, you might not be familiar with Tunan.”
“Although he is a genius, a genius needs enough time to grow. ”
Who knew that Orochimaru completely ignored Hiruzen Sarutobi’s secret glances, and leisurely said:
“As your disciple, I believe that Tunan has the strength to do so.”
As soon as he finished speaking, Hiruzen Sarutobi completely understood.
It seemed that Orochimaru had long been together with Danzo, and he was not here to save the situation for himself.
Instead, it was to add weight to Danzo.
This was a naked betrayal, and the traitor was a disciple he had always relied on!
At this time, Danzo tapped his fingers on the table a few times, and said with a victorious attitude:
“Hiruzen, Orochimaru agrees, so don’t stop him.”
We are all thinking from the perspective of the village, and Uchiha Tunan is indeed the best candidate.
At this time, Hiruzen Sarutobi was staring straight at Orochimaru, and his face was as gloomy as water. He nodded gently and said,
“Very good, very good.”
“Orochimaru, you have grown so much that I don’t understand you. ”
“Teacher, I don’t understand what you’re talking about.” Orochimaru’s eyelids twitched, and he immediately said with an innocent face
“I’m considering it from an objective point of view. If you think what I said is wrong, you don’t have to accept it. ”
Hiruzen Sarutobi withdrew his gaze, stared at the table, and took a drag on his cigarette, not saying anything for a long time.
After a few breaths, Hiruzen Sarutobi finally calmed down and said faintly, “I think we need to ask for the opinion of the person involved in this matter.”
Danzo immediately slammed the table and shouted, “Hiruzen, that’s enough.”
“Uchiha Tunan is first a ninja from the village, and then your disciple.”
“This exam represents the village, and it is a mission issued.”
“Could it be that he said he wasn’t willing to go and just let it go like this?”
“Then what do we need us old fellows for? Let’s just forget about managing the village and let them have their freedom. ”
Hiruzen Sarutobi took a deep breath and puffed out smoke from his nostrils. Then, he gently placed the pipe on the table.
He also stood up slowly and looked directly at Danzo opposite him. He said word by word,
“Danzo, is this your attitude towards the Hokage?”
The two of them stared at each other for a few seconds. In the end, Danzo was defeated. He sat down on a chair and lowered his eyes.
“The village needs justice. If someone wants to use public for personal gain, I, Danzo, will be the first to disagree.”
“The will of fire in my heart will not allow me to turn a blind eye.”
His words were full of righteousness and impeccable.
Hiruzen Sarutobi knew that if he continued to speak like this, he would be the one to suffer.
How could the previous Danzo dare to do this to him?
It was because after this new name was appointed, every time he gave the village funds, he would privately give Danzo a larger sum of funds.
However, the price of the items had skyrocketed, causing him to have to lower his head and ask Danzo for money many times for the development of the village.
At this moment, Hiruzen Sarutobi felt as if he had been taken over.
The power that he had always held in his hands seemed to have unknowingly lost more than half.
Hiruzen Sarutobi sat down and leaned back in his chair. He sighed and said,
“Well, since you all have decided so.”
“When the time comes, let Tunan participate.”
“Everyone disperse. ”
After saying that, Danzo’s lips curled up, and he took the lead to leave.
Orochimaru and Homura followed him from both sides.
Only Koharu, who turned around, stood up and said,
However, before she could finish her words, Danzo turned back and looked at Koharu coldly.
Koharu immediately choked and left with her head down.
