Konoha Hypocrite - Chapter 95
In the forest of the Fire Country, Asuma was desperately running away.
This place was far away from the Fire Capital. The full moon in the night sky was like the eyes of a goddess, staring coldly at the earth.
The forest was filled with terrifying cries of insects and birds, as well as the roars of beasts.
Asuma also saw the huge lightning above the Fire Capital in the distance.
He had a bad guess.
“No, that guy is so strong. How could something happen to him?” Asuma could only comfort himself like this.
After running for such a long time with his life on the line, Asuma couldn’t hold on much longer.
He looked around cautiously. After making sure that no one was following him, he stopped to rest.
He bent down supporting his hands with both knees, panting from exhaustion.
The fine sweat on his forehead formed a line, flowing down his cheeks.
Even if a ninja had a strong physique, it was still too difficult for Asuma, who was not even a Genin, to maintain a high speed running.
At this time, a cold wind mixed with the moisture of the forest blew on Asuma’s body, which was particularly horrifying.
Asuma turned his head and looked, his heart was also uneasy.
He saw that the moon above his head was still hanging on it, emitting a cold light, covering the cold and cheerless night with a filter.
The forest behind him was too dense, and the moonlight could not shine down at all.
It was pitch-black, like a huge mouth of the abyss, full of danger.
Asuma swallowed his saliva, feeling a little cold. He rubbed his arms together and muttered, “No one should be chasing after me.”
Although he said this, his heart was beating extremely fast.
It was as if he had predicted that something would happen in a while.
Asuma reached out and wiped the cold sweat off his forehead. He dragged his exhausted body to find a tree hole and entered.
There was a rotten smell in the tree hole, and many reptiles were attached to the inside of the tree hole, biting and tearing at the tree trunk.
The reptiles swam around the body of Asuma, making it feel extremely itchy.
Even so, in order not to be discovered, Asuma did not dare to make too much of a reaction, and could only forcefully endure.
If the people who were being hunted found out, the outcome would be countless times worse than it was now.
Today’s dream-like experience had already exhausted Asuma’s mind.
Accompanied by the chirping of birds and insects in the forest, Asuma gradually closed his eyes and curled up in the tree hole to sleep.
So itchy —
After an unknown period of time, Asuma was still awakened by the reptiles in the tree hole.
Unable to bear it any longer, he stretched out his hand and scratched his body a few times.
Suddenly, Asuma was slightly startled.
Through the tree hole, he could see that it was still late at night outside.
But he remembered that before he fell asleep, there was a cry of insects and birds outside, but now it had all disappeared.
Thinking about it carefully, this was a deep forest where many insects, ants, and birds were gathered. It was indeed abnormal to not have any cries.
The surroundings were terrifyingly quiet, and Asuma could even clearly hear her own heartbeat.
“Dong, dong, dong…”
The beating of the heart was like a heavy hammer, and it was especially ear-piercing in this deathly silent environment.
Asuma could feel cold sweat running down his back, and his forehead was covered in fine sweat.
He tried his best to adjust his rapid breathing, trying to calm himself down.
He even comforted himself in his heart. Perhaps this silence was just a special natural phenomenon.
Perhaps he was thinking too much. When he woke up from a nap, everything would be fine.
After the time it took to brew a cup of tea, Asuma’s emotions gradually stabilized.
Just as he was feeling apprehensive and wanted to continue sleeping.
A black shadow appeared at the cave entrance.
Asuma felt his heart stop for a moment.
His eyes suddenly widened, and even the reptiles on his body seemed to have collectively stopped moving.
His breathing began to become rapid again, and his lips were so frightened that they lost their color.
A moment later, Asuma finally saw what it was.
It turned out that the black shadow was just a white pigeon.
The white pigeon tilted its head, lowered its head, and pecked a few reptiles before spreading its wings and flying away.
Asuma lowered his head and panted heavily, a terrified expression on his face.
At the same time, he secretly mocked himself in his heart.
You scared me to death. Asuma, why are you so timid? It’s just a pigeon.
Under this kind of shock and panic, Asuma’s entire body was drenched in sweat. He felt uncomfortable all over.
No, does a pigeon want to eat bugs?
A question mark flashed through Asuma’s mind, and he subconsciously raised his head.
Asuma’s pupils suddenly contracted to the extreme, and his heartbeat stopped instantly.
Relying on the faint moonlight shining through the gaps between the leaves of the trees, he was able to see through the darkness.
Asuma vaguely saw a pale face that was almost touching his face, as if he was carefully sizing him up.
The dim environment and the distance were too close, so Asuma could not see the other person’s appearance clearly.
He only felt as if there was a pair of invisible hands holding his neck tightly, and he was suffocating.
He opened his mouth in fear, but could not make any sound.
In the next moment, the human face’s eyes turned red, and the three magatama sharingan slowly rotated.
“Asuma, why are you here?”
A slightly familiar voice sounded, pulling Asuma back from his extreme fear.
Asuma finally recovered.
“Bastard, why are you here? Do you know that it’s scary to suddenly put your face over here?” Asuma lowered his voice and said angrily.
Uchiha Tunan pulled his head out of the tree hole. Although his face was pale, his expression was abnormally gentle. He adjusted his glasses and said,
“I came here especially to find you. I’m really sorry for scaring you.”
In such a dangerous situation, Asuma finally met an acquaintance and felt much more relaxed.
Asuma saw Uchiha Tunan’s fearless appearance and immediately stuck his head out. With a serious face, he said,
“You also escaped?”
Uchiha Tunan smiled and did not speak.
Asuma looked around and reminded,
“We should be more careful. Don’t provoke the people of Fire Capital.”
Do you know where Shinnosuke is?
Uchiha Tunan did not answer Asuma’s question. Instead, he asked with a smile,
“Asuma, I want to ask you a question.”
“What is it?” Asuma’s hands kept grabbing the insects attached to his body.
Uchiha Tunan tilted his head and said, “Apart from senior Shinnosuke, who does Hokage respect the most?”
Asuma frowned, somewhat dissatisfied with Uchiha Tunan speaking so loudly. What if he summoned the enemy?
He immediately lowered his voice and said, “That goes without saying. It must be Orochimaru sama.”
I heard from the old man that Orochimaru sama is his favorite disciple.
Uchiha Tunan nodded in realization and muttered, “It seems that the Hokage Sama is very concerned about the legacy.”
Then, his eyes narrowed and the corners of his mouth curled up.
“Thank you for clearing up my doubts. In order to express my gratitude, I will personally send you on your way.”
* whoosh *
Before Asuma could speak, a white light flashed, and Asuma’s head fell to the ground.
In the next instant, a group of pitch-black vicious birds flew over from all directions. Some surrounded Asuma’s head, and some entered the tree hole.
Uchiha Tunan took out a handkerchief and gently wiped the blood on the short blade of chakra. He sighed, “Sure enough, it is the sannin.”
After saying that, Uchiha Tunan put the short blade of chakra into the scabbard.
He walked towards the direction of the Fire Capital, and his figure gradually disappeared into the darkness.
In the forest, only the sound of continuous tearing could be heard.
