Konoha Hypocrite - Chapter 96
After the time it takes to brew a cup of tea.
Lightning suddenly lit up in the dark forest.
Uchiha Tunan’s eyes flashed as his body suddenly stopped moving. He maintained the posture of charging forward, and his right hand tightly held the short blade of chakra.
Behind him, a pitcher plant was cut off by the middle, and the upper half slowly slid down.
In an instant, the lower half of the pitcher plant burrowed into the soil.
Uchiha Tunan stood up and waited quietly for a while. Only then did he put away his short blade and disappear.
“Huhu —scared me to death.”
On the ground in the distance, a plant split open from the middle, revealing the upper body of the black and white Zetsu.
“Almost got beheaded by him. How did he find out? When did the Sharingan become so strong?”
“He didn’t find us. He just came back to take a look out of caution.”
“Despicable, despicable, how did Uchiha have such a sinister and despicable guy?”
“Madara sama made a mistake.”
As soon as he finished speaking, he immediately dived into the ground.
In the time it took for a spark to fly, a short blade with Wind and Thunder attributes descended from the sky and heavily stabbed into the spot where Zetsu had just appeared.
Wind blades flew and lightning flashed, illuminating the dark forest.
Powerful wind and lightning attribute chakra suddenly erupted, blasting a deep pit in the ground.
After several breaths, Uchiha Tunan came here, pulled out his short blade and muttered, “Unfortunately, he still escaped.”
After saying that, Uchiha Tunan shook his head and let out a long sigh. Then, he turned around and ran towards the Fire Capital.
The forest fell silent again.
Ten minutes later…
In the forest, lightning flashed everywhere, and large amounts of trees were cut in half.
“Why hasn’t this guy left yet? Puh! Puh! What’s so smelly? Is this a fart?”
“This is poison. I told you not to come out. You still have to come back to see.”
Uchiha Tunan put away his short blade with a cold expression.
Looking at the mushroom cloud rising in front of him, he felt a bit of regret.
Poison, traps, and explosion talismans were all useless.
The range of the other party’s perception was really a bit too big.
Every time Uchiha Tunan rushed over from the range of perception, the time he spent was enough to let the other party escape.
As long as he did not show up, even if Uchiha Tunan had the double perception of Byakugan and Sharingan, he would not be able to find him.
For Uchiha Tunan, the potential threat was a little big.
Of course, it was only limited to the early stage.
“Yin Yang Escape Technique… It seems that I have to learn the sealing technique to get rid of you.”
In the morning, the sky had just broken through and the sky was clear for thousands of miles. The darkness slowly moved to the horizon and the light scattered to the earth.
The children in the North City Guard Manor opened their sleepy eyes. When they saw that the sunlight had already crawled in through the gap between the curtains in their room, they stretched comfortably.
Uchiha Tunan pushed open the door of the room and glanced at the children who were still lying on the bed. With a gentle expression, he said, “Don’t be in bed. It’s time to eat breakfast.”
When the group of children heard Uchiha Tunan’s voice, they were happy. They quickly jumped up from the bed and trotted to his side.
Uchiha Tunan hugged them next to each other and urged, “Hurry up and wash up and eat. I made breakfast myself today.”
“Okay —” The children were very obedient, and they obediently lined up to wash up.
These days, they had been very happy. The psychological shadow of a while ago had gradually dissipated.
It was replaced by the innocence of a child.
After a while, in another room, Uchiha Tunan sat quietly and watched the children eat breakfast.
It was as if he was looking at his own son, his eyes full of love.
When the children were almost done eating, Uchiha Tunan coughed lightly.
He stroked the head of the child next to him and said gently,
“I have to go on a business trip for a period of time.”
“During this period of time, I will ask Masaki Fukuda to take care of you.”
“You have to be obedient, and the extraction of chakra can not be stopped, understand?”
As soon as his voice fell, the originally cheerful atmosphere suddenly became silent, and these children all curled their lips.
In their hearts, Uchiha Tunan was the person who saved them from danger, and he had taken good care of them during this period of time.
The children had already developed a sense of dependence on him, and they were used to having him by their side every day.
To them, Uchiha Tunan was already a family existence.
Although the children were reluctant, they were also obedient and sensible. They knew that Uchiha Tunan was going to do business, and they should not obstruct him.
Therefore, they did not say anything to keep him.
When Uchiha Tunan saw that they were so sensible, he immediately smiled gently.
Then, he slowly got up and walked out.
Just as he reached the door, Uchiha Tunan heard the shouts of the children behind him.
He suddenly stopped in his tracks and turned around. Then, he smiled, squatted down, and opened his hands.
A group of children rushed to Uchiha Tunan and hugged him one by one. Then, they reluctantly said goodbye.
Now that both Shinnosuke and Asuma were dead, Uchiha Tunan, as the only survivor of the Fire Capital, would have a lot of trouble when he went back.
He could only wait for everything to stabilize, build the welfare home, and bring these children to Konoha.
After leaving the North City Guard Mansion, Uchiha Tunan found the supervisory minister, Masaki Fukuda.
At this time, Masaki Fukuda was very busy.
The Daimyo was murdered, and the Fire Capital was under martial law. Many things also fell on his head.
He saw Masaki Fukuda working on the desk, not even raising his head. “Right now, the situation in Fire Capital is more serious. As a Konoha Ninja, I advise you to stay in the manor and not come out.”
Shinnosuke and Asuma’s betrayal caused the officials of Fire Capital to feel estranged from the Konoha Ninjas.
Of course, no one came to find trouble with Uchiha Tunan.
After all, Uchiha Tunan had always had a good reputation among the people.
Moreover, Abe Akira came from the North City Guard Manor, so there might be some sort of relationship between the two.
On the other hand, Masaki Fukuda and Uchiha Tunan worked together to make a huge contribution to the prosperity of the Fire Capital.
The relationship between the two was not shallow, so Masaki Fukuda naturally took good care of Uchiha Tunan.
Now that it was a martial law, he kindly reminded Uchiha Tunan.
Uchiha Tunan leisurely took out six sealing scrolls from his ninja backpack and placed them on the table.
“Master Masaki Fukuda, I’m leaving.”
Masaki Fukuda glanced at them and quickly covered the scrolls with a piece of paper. He raised his head and looked outside. After making sure that there was no one around, he whispered, “Why?”
Uchiha Tunan lowered his head and said in a deep voice, “Lord Shinnosuke is dead.”
He nodded and said, “I understand. You really need to go back and report to the Hokage now. I will write you a proof of leaving the city.”
Uchiha Tunan smiled and took out a book and another scroll. He put it on the table and said,
“Thank you for your help these days. This is my final reward for you. If you need my help in the future, you can come to Konoha at any time.”
