Konoha Hypocrite - Chapter 94
As Uchiha Tunan raised his hand, the lightning between heaven and earth seemed to be guided.
It gathered into a huge thunder ball that poked its head out from the dark clouds.
The thunder ball shone with a blazing white light, like a small sun, illuminating the entire fire capital.
Everyone was blinded by the dazzling white light, and even the people around them could not see clearly.
Seeing this situation, the nurses who were attacking Shinnosuke retreated one after another and desperately ran away.
With such a terrifying power, if they were too close to Shinnosuke, they would probably be caught in the crossfire.
At this moment, Shinnosuke was frightened and stared at the figure high up in the sky.
I seem to have seen it somewhere before.
Shinnosuke swallowed his saliva. At this moment, he didn’t have time to think about it.
He immediately used all the chakra in his body to summon dense earth dragons.
These earth dragons rushed towards the sky and intertwined in the air to form a mountain peak.
He wanted to use this opportunity to block the incoming attack.
Uchiha Tunan, who was on the roof, curled his lips.
Then, he raised his hand and slowly pressed it down.
The ball of lightning lit up and in an instant, a thick bolt of lightning shot down.
“Block for me!”
Shinnosuke had a ferocious expression on his face, the veins on his forehead were bulging, and the chakra within his body poured into the ground.
The surrounding ground was already damaged to the point of being riddled with holes, and numerous earth dragons emerged one after another, merging into the mountain peak to strengthen the defense.
Even if his earth style ninjutsu had a strong defense, it was still not enough for him to use it against Uchiha Tunan.
Especially when Uchiha Tunan used the lightning technique he had inherited from White Fang, Lightning Tribulation Descent.
Although it had great side effects, once it was successfully released, its power was not something that ordinary ninjutsu could resist.
Uchiha Tunan was confident that even if it was up against the initial stage Susanoo, this attack could still pierce through it.
In the time it took for a spark to fly, the mountain peak formed by countless earth dragons was pierced through by the lightning.
In the next moment, everyone subconsciously closed their eyes.
The entire world became silent and white.
When the light dissipated, everyone quickly turned their gazes to the place where the lightning had struck.
The mountain peaks formed by the earth dragons were split into large pieces of rock fragments that scattered everywhere. There were large patches of charred marks on the rock, and smoke was rising.
The center had been blasted into a deep pit by the thunder, and Shinnosuke had disappeared.
There were even some dark red lava flowing in the pit.
The entire Fire Capital fell into silence.
Everyone looked at the big pit in shock, and then they looked at each other.
Some people even had short-term deaf.
After several breaths, these people regained their hearing.
Countless civilians began to cheer one after another.
“Long live Mr. Abe Akira!”
“Long live Mr. Abe Akira!”
Uchiha Tunan activated Lightning Wind Flash, and his figure slowly disappeared from everyone’s sight amidst the continuous cheers from the people.
Then, the building that Uchiha Tunan was standing on could no longer hold on and collapsed inch by inch.
Uchiha Tunan, who had left, quickly appeared in the Daimyo’s mansion and walked out from the corner with a calm and composed expression.
However, because of the side effects of the Thunder God’s Soul, Uchiha Tunan’s face was deathly pale at this moment.
“Everyone, the thief has already been beheaded. I wonder if Your Highness Daimyo okay?.”
Everyone quickly surrounded him, their faces full of reverence, and their voices of praise were endless.
When the ministers heard the other side ask about his name, they all pretended to be very sad.
Then the internal affairs minister stood out and said in a low voice : “Mr. Abe Akira”
“His Highness the Daimyo was assassinated and died.”
Uchiha Tunan pretended to be angry and said, “What?”
The internal affairs minister continued to explain,
“The person who was killed by Mr. Abe Akira just now was the guardian beside His Highness. Her name is Sarutobi Shinnosuke.”
“It is suspected that he killed his Highness, but there are many strange things in it. We can’t make up our minds for the time being.”
At this time, the Eldest Prince walked out of the crowd with the corpse of his name, his face full of desolation.
The Eldest Prince dragged his footsteps and knelt in front of Uchiha Tunan.
“Teacher Ane Akira, please uphold justice for this disciple.”
Uchiha Tunan stared at the Eldest Prince in front of him with a grave expression, but he was thinking carefully in his heart.
The original plan was to let the first Prince assassinate any one of the Daimyo or second Prince.
And then use rumors to push Shinnosuke to the forefront.
Let the nurses detain Shinnosuke and even kill him.
But before, Uchiha Tunan learned about this matter through Wind Whisper.
He didn’t expect that this Eldest Prince would actually try to frame him and escape, basically washing away any suspicion.
What was even more unexpected was that Shinnosuke was actually so strong.
Just based on that ninjutsu that could change the landscape, it was simply born for war.
Left with no choice, Uchiha Tunan could only use his identity as Abe Akira to kill Shinnosuke.
Although this was not the best solution, even if Hiruzen Sarutobi pursued it, it would only cause trouble for the Daimyo.
“It’s like this…”
The internal affairs minister thought that Uchiha Tunan did not know what happened here and quickly explained to Uchiha Tunan.
When the internal affairs minister finished speaking, Uchiha Tunan had made a decision in his heart.
With a solemn face, he said, “It is impossible for His Highness to be the murderer.”
All the ministers looked puzzled.
Uchiha Tunan said in a clear voice, “His Highness Eldest Prince is the Daimyo of the future. There is no reason for him to do such a thing.”
As soon as he finished speaking, the ministers all had strange looks in their eyes, thinking that this Mr. Abe Akira in front of them was not well-informed enough and did not know about the recent changes of the Daimyo.
Uchiha Tunan continued,
“The guardian who protects His Highness should know that his Daimyo is to let His Highness Eldest Prince inherit his position.”
“That is why I used all sorts of methods to train His Highness’ temperament.”
“In order for His Highness Eldest Prince to be able to secure his position in the future, His Highness Daimyo even specially brought His Highness Eldest Prince to his side to console him.”
“This will prevent His Highness from having a different heart and going against him in the future.”
“I also told the first Prince about this matter. It’s just that outsiders don’t know.”
When the ministers heard this, they all looked at the guardians.
The nurses all nodded, affirming what Uchiha Tunan said.
“So that’s how it is.”
“From the beginning, I thought that the murderer could not be His Highness the First Prince.”
“I also think so, but you can’t doubt His Highness.”
“Teacher… Thank you.”
The Eldest Prince stared at Uchiha Tunan with his eyes wide open. He gritted his teeth and spat out blood.
He forcefully swallowed the blood in his mouth, lowered his head and said word by word, “Thank you for avenging my father.”
Uchiha Tunan narrowed his eyes and looked at the Eldest Prince who was full of resentment towards him. He said slowly,
“This is what this old man should do as a Teacher.”
“Unfortunately, this old man is already old, I just overdrew my body’s potential, and I don’t have much time left.”
“Fire Country, I will have to rely on you in the future…”
With that, Uchiha Tunan used Lightning Spirit Wind Flash to leave this place, heading towards the outside of Fire Capital.
“Mr. Abe Akira.”
“Why did Mr. Abe Akira leave?”
“Didn’t you notice Mr. Abe Akira’s expression? I reckon… sigh…”
“That’s right. The price of that powerful ninjutsu just now is definitely not small.”
“What a pity, what a pity…”
“A great talent has fallen to such a state.”
“Right now, the most important thing is to bury the lord and arrange for the throne.”
“Konoha’s Hokage is also a problem.”
“Your Highness, please restrain your grief.”
His eyes were full of dead silence, and he said expressionlessly,
“Everyone, you all should go back and rest first.”
“Let me accompany father properly…”
After His Highness finished speaking, he struggled to pick up the corpse and returned to the room.
After a long time, His Highness roared in grief and indignation from the room.
