Naruto: This Ninja is Obviously Not Strong But Really Hard To Kill - Chapter 83
“I know what you mentioned. As for the communication problem, I will let White Zetsu leave a clone at the place where we met last time. If you have any information you want to pass on, write it on the note and bury it directly in the soil.”
With White Zetsu’s clone as a transmission agent, speed, safety, and stealth were all guaranteed.
However, Aoba immediately thought that there was still a need to monitor the location of the transmission. After all, he had to go to that place almost every day.
Even White Zetsu could grasp his strength progress through his daily training…
It was not that Aoba was too crazy, he felt that there were always unruly people who wanted to harm him, but he had to think more.
After all, the one standing in front of him now was no longer the hot-blooded and cheerful young man who helped the old woman cross the road but the vicious and merciless mastermind who was full of despair in this world.
But thinking back, refusing was unrealistic, and it was possible to be suspected.
Therefore, Aoba said indifferently, “Sure, if you have any news to inform me, let White Zetsu put a leaf under my bed. I will go there to look for him when I see him.”
This was also considered that he had the possibility of not going to the training ground, so Obito naturally had no objection to this.
“Work hard to improve your strength. You are still too weak now. I am looking forward to the day when we meet again…”
Before he finished speaking, Obito had already distorted and disappeared.
Aoba’s tense nerves finally relaxed. He was completely exhausted as if he had just gone through an intense battle.
There was nothing else. The pressure that Obito gave him was simply too great.
Moreover, he was completely unable to understand Obito’s attitude right now. The feeling of not being able to control his life was truly terrible.
Therefore, he did not mention giving himself another day off. He put on his clothes and went directly to the training ground.
Unconsciously, his desire to become stronger became more and more urgent!
There was another person who also wanted to become stronger, and that was Itachi, who Aoba had fooled.
In particular, the atmosphere in the clan became more and more strange, and every clan member seemed to have undisguised anger on their faces.
However, Sasuke, who was almost four months old, gave him a lot of comforts.
Although Aoba always said that he was a ‘brocon’ every time they met, wasn’t it wrong to leave the best for his younger brother?
Just like how Shisui treated him as his younger brother, he also hoped that he could be a good brother and become a good example for Sasuke.
Therefore, it was better to have a disciple complex. Aoba, that guy was envious of his own younger brother. When Sasuke grew older, he would take Sasuke out with him and let that guy envy him!
Thinking of this, Itachi was even more motivated in his training!
However, at this moment, Itachi probably did not expect that his sudden whim would make a certain person become the childhood shadow of Sasuke’s life…
Oh, I almost forgot to say that he also signed up for the ninja school that would start in January. He did not want to wait any longer.
In this world with the ninjas, the speed of construction could be said to be extremely fast.
Although the night that Kyuubi wreaked havoc had brought Konoha heavy pain and loss, Konoha had not been able to recover. But the place that had been destroyed could be said to be rebuilt at speed visible to the naked eye.
Although the survivors still couldn’t forget the pain left behind and the fear at that time, they still had to look forward and live.
Therefore, it didn’t take long for Konoha to regain its former appearance.
It was just that the streets were much quieter…
In addition to the fact that Kumogakure came to attack, it added a bit of a murderous atmosphere to Konoha so that it was evening.
There were not many guests in the tavern and indescribable area.
In the face of such a situation, the villagers could only pray every day, hoping that this war of ‘rising from the ashes’ would quickly subside.
But it was obvious that this was just an extravagant hope after all.
Almost every day, a large number of ninjas rushed to the front lines with a determined look on their faces and engaged in a fierce life and death battle with the Kumogakure Ninjas, who came all the way to the border of the Fire Country.
Similarly, a large number of corpses were covered in white cloth every day, and they were transported back to Konoha for burial.
This was only a tiny part of the sacrifice. There were even more corpses that had not been taken away in time. They had either become food for the beasts or were snatched away by the enemies. Kekkei Genkai was quite attractive, but the chances of success were too small.
However, a dead camel was still bigger than a horse. Although Konoha no longer had an advantage.
However, the surviving Ninjas were all experienced and experienced elites!
As long as the Kumogakure Ninjas could not smash Konoha to death, the next battle would be like a quagmire.
And if they entered a war of attrition, it would undoubtedly be the home field battle — Konoha had the advantage.
The Land of Lightning had come from afar; whether it was supplies or logistics, it would be extremely difficult to continue.
Therefore, probably every ninja on the front line firmly believed that Konoha could obtain the final victory, and their morale soared!
In the Hokage’s office.
Sarutobi, who had once again taken over the position of Hokage, could not help but rub his temples as he faced the current situation where Konoha was both internally and externally worried.
The reason why he abdicated was not entirely to give an explanation to the other major countries but to truly feel powerless.
Originally, after Minato took over the position, everything was developing in a good direction, but the sudden change completely disrupted everything and once again dragged Konoha, who was preparing to rest and recuperate, into the quagmire of the war.
At this moment, it could be said that Sarutobi hated the Land of Lightning for taking advantage of the situation, but there was nothing he could do.
Because this was indeed the weakest moment for Konoha.
However, the fortunate thing was that the other three major powers would only be worse off than Konoha now. They would not be able to spare any energy to cause trouble. Otherwise, if the four countries attacked, it would be very difficult for Konoha to resist.
“Hokage-Sama, the Land of Lightning has refused the peace negotiation agreement that we sent over and has made many rude requests.”
After saying that, he handed a scroll to Sarutobi.
When Sarutobi finished reading the peace negotiation request from the Land of Lightning, he directly smashed the scroll on the table in anger!
“Kumogakure is simply too much!”
“Pass down the order. From this moment on, Konoha will immediately enter the state of first-level war alert!”
“Since the Land of Lightning insists on fighting, then let them see our Konoha Ninja’s answer!”
After Sarutobi was furious, he no longer dealt with the official business piled up into a mountain. Instead, he went to the room next door and looked at Naruto, who was drinking milk.
At the same time, he sighed in his heart, “Minato, you really left me with a mess…”
