Konoha Hypocrite - Chapter 151
Two days later.
Late at night, everything was silent.
In the dark forest dozens of miles away from the village.
The night sky was vast and boundless, and the bright moon hung high in the sky like a silver plate.
The stars in the distance timidly flickered with a lonely glimmer, and they carefully went further and deeper into space.
The biting cold north wind whistled, blowing the bare branches in the forest back and forth, making sounds of crying, which sounded eerie and terrifying.
In the dark and deep forest, a soft figure emerged from a tree.
The man was wearing a white kimono. His face was completely pale, and his eyes were shining with a dangerous light.
His whole body was gray and white, and he was out of place with the darkness, but the darkness of the night merged with his aura.
It was Orochimaru, one of the Sannin of Konoha.
Orochimaru left the tree and walked into the dark forest.
About ten minutes later, Orochimaru came out of the darkness, holding a test tube in his hand.
Just now, it was Orochimaru who went to a specific place to get fresh experimental materials.
In the test tube was a pair of eyes soaked in a special solution.
There were some red blood threads floating around the eyeballs.
The pupils on the eyeballs were round, staring straight in a direction, making people feel that it was horrifying.
Orochimaru looked at the eyeballs in the test tube as he walked, and his slender tongue could not help but lick his lips, a satisfied look appearing on his face.
Suddenly, Orochimaru raised his head vigilantly and looked around.
However, he did not find anything strange.
The cold wind was like a sharp sword waving in the night sky, scraping through the trees and woods, making sharp and naughty howls like wolves.
It sounded so gloomy that it was scary.
The dim moonlight sprinkled all over the earth, and the dense branches around were connected to a pale white color.
Under the cold moonlight, the wild grass seemed to give birth to countless mysterious shadows. From a distance, it looked like a dark forest of undead flames, endless.
Orochimaru put the test tube into his ninja bag, frowned, and muttered, “Is it because the intensity of the experiments recently is too high, and he is too nervous?”
Although he said this, Orochimaru, who had always been cautious, stood in place without moving.
Secretly casting Ninjutsu, he mobilized countless small snakes to search for enemies that might be hiding in the forest.
“Sha Sha Sha —”
Countless small snakes of various colors swam through the weeds, with a pair of big bright eyes shining with dark green light.
From time to time, they would spit out long letters from their mouths, searching for all life in the vicinity.
Under the fierce gale, the faint sound of snakes crawling could be heard.
“Hiss –” The sound was accompanied by more and more sounds of friction between the flowers and trees on the ground as they moved quickly.
Orochimaru also knew that his experiments could not be exposed.
Especially since he had already offended Hiruzen Sarutobi, there might be an assassination unit sent by Hiruzen Sarutobi looking for him somewhere, secretly observing him.
One second, two seconds, three seconds…
Time passed bit by bit, and the place where the snakes could climb had already been climbed.
The area within a few miles was filled with all kinds of poisonous snakes.
Even the bare branches were covered with twisted black shadows.
From time to time, there would be a few sporadic sounds around him, as if it were forthe last struggle of life, as well as the cry for help before death.
There was a faint smell of blood in the air.
To be on the safe side, Orochimaru ordered the snakes to kill all the animals hibernating in the surroundings.
This was to prevent people from using Ninja Beasts to secretly observe.
After a while, Orochimaru finally confirmed that there were no signs of other creatures around.
Only then did he relax and walk towards the entrance of the experimental base.
When he arrived at the previous tree hole, Orochimaru first vigilantly stretched out his pale arm.
His arm squirmed, and a snake head came out and looked into the tree hole.
Seeing that nothing was wrong, Orochimaru went into the tree hole.
The tree hole was very deep, and it was seven or eight meters deep.
Orochimaru fell to the bottom, surrounded by hard stone walls, and in front of him was a pitch-black passage.
Orochimaru walked into the passage with ease, stepping on the stone stairs as he walked down.
After walking for dozens of meters, he arrived at the laboratory.
This was Orochimaru’s No. 1 laboratory, which contained the remains of various animals, as well as all kinds of medicinal herbs and reagents.
This was just a cover-up.
Orochimaru came to the corner of the room, stretched out his hand, and pressed on an area of the stone wall, pushing it slightly.
The stone wall caved in.
Next to him, a tightly closed stone door slowly opened.
Orochimaru walked into the stone door, reached out and pressed on the switch next to the stone door, and the stone door slowly closed again.
Then, Orochimaru could not wait to take out the test tube from his Ninja Bag.
He came to the experiment table and carefully took out the eyeball from the test tube with tweezers, putting it into the container.
Suddenly, Orochimaru felt his heart suddenly tighten. He frowned and quickly turned around, vigilantly looking around.
This laboratory was much bigger than the experiments outside.
There were human bodies sealed in the container, and there were ninja scrolls that he had developed on the bookshelf.
On the operating table in the middle, there was a body that had been dissected.
In the specially made cold liquid in the corner, there was also a storage of cells and various limbs and tissues of ninjas with Bloodline Limit.
There was a bed and a chair in the innermost part of the laboratory, all for his rest.
From Orochimaru’s perspective, he could see the whole scene of the laboratory.
However, even though there was nothing, Orochimaru could feel that the warning in his heart was getting stronger and stronger.
This was an instinct that came from snakes, as if he was being watched by some powerful hunter.
Orochimaru narrowed his eyes, not daring to act rashly. He repeatedly observed everything in the laboratory.
After all, there were all kinds of hidden Ninjutsu in the world.
Maybe someone would have a specific ninjutsu that could escape his perception and hide in an unexpected place.
But if someone came in early, he would definitely be unable to resist touching the things in the laboratory.
Orochimaru looked at every corner of the room and began to compare it with the time when he left.
Exactly the same.
It was exactly the same.
The entire laboratory did not change at all from when he left.
Could it be his own illusion?
He had come back too quickly, and the person had yet to touch his things.
It was fine if it was just an illusion, but if there really was someone hiding here, as long as he found it.
Thinking of this, Orochimaru stuck out his tongue and licked his lips.
His mouth revealed a strange smile, and he murmured in a gloomy tone, “Interesting.”
After saying that, Orochimaru slowly moved to the container that stored the human body.
The transparent glass container was neatly arranged in a row.
Orochimaru slowly moved his head to the glass wall of the container, carefully observing the human specimen that was soaked in a special solution.
In this container was a man with his eyes tightly closed, but his facial features were very clear, as if he was about to open his eyes in the next second.
Because his blood had been drained and he had been injected with a preservation solution, his skin was in a grayish-white state.
His hair was floating in the liquid, and his face looked a little ferocious.
Obviously, he did not die so happily.
Well, this is not a problem. There is no life activity, and there is no trace of transformation.
Orochimaru put his hand on the container, and looked at the book as if he was touching something he loved very much.
The expression on his face was also gentle and soft.
However, in such an environment, there was no sense of warmth, just strange and horrifying.
After confirming that there was no mistake, Orochimaru lowered his eyes, and his expression returned to normal.
He then went to the next container and carefully observed it in the same manner.
This is also no problem…
