Reborn in Konoha as the Anbu Torturer - Chapter 158
Just as Aoba entered Konohagakure Intelligence Division, he encountered such a scene.
He was not surprised.
It could even be said that it was within his expectations.
After reading through Kenji’s memories, he knew that this person had come all the way by asking.
Aoba didn’t know how to describe this person.
It wasn’t enough to say that he was stupid.
To say that he was smart, but he was still mentally retarded.
When Aoba thought about how this person came to him directly and asked him to go to the forest to find Fugaku, he felt that it was ridiculous.
Just think about it a little.
Why make such a lame excuse.
It can indeed be seen that the time was too tight, so there was no way to think about reasonable excuses, so he just bite the bullet.
This was how it was done.
It was too reckless.
Aoba had a new assessment of Kenji’s intelligence in his heart.
Even if he was fooled and killed by Danzo, the matter of Kenji looking for him would still be instantly investigated.
Aoba stood at the Konohagakure Intelligence Division entrance. He saw Konoha Military Police Force and heard Fugaku’s question inside. He did not walk in directly, but quietly watched what the person said.
After reading through Kenji’s memories, he already knew that he would face such a situation.
“I’m sure! I’m sure it’s this person! He said that he is Konoha Military Police Force. He has something to ask Aoba and asked me which room Aoba lives in.” The Konohagakure Intelligence Division’s ninja nodded and said.
“Okay, I understand.” Fugaku nodded with a thoughtful expression on his face.
“Big Brother Fugaku, why are you here?”
At this time, Aoba saw the right time and directly stepped into Konohagakure Intelligence Division, facing Konoha Military Police Force and the others.
“Aoba…” Fugaku turned around and saw Aoba walking over. He was trying to figure out how to ask this question.
“Big Brother Fugaku, you came at the right time. I have something to say to you. Would it be convenient for you to speak to me alone?” Before Fugaku could speak, Aoba took the initiative to speak.
Fugaku was stunned for a moment, then immediately nodded. Just now, he was wondering how to ask Aoba, but he did not expect that Aoba actually took the initiative to talk to him.
Fugaku followed Aoba and walked towards the dark corridor that was empty.
Until they walked into the dark.
Aoba stopped in his tracks.
He then turned to look at Fugaku.
His face darkened.
“Big Brother Fugaku, why are you looking for me last night?” Aoba immediately asked Fugaku.
Fugaku was confused by Aoba’s words.
“I’m not looking for you!”
Fugaku was stunned by Aoba’s sudden question. He had been following Akaru to pursue the Kumogakure Ninja last night, so he had no time to find Aoba.
“This is strange…”
Aoba frowned tightly. His right hand pinched his chin, and his eyes flashed with a thoughtful look.
Aoba entered his acting mode.
That realistic acting seemed to have encountered something puzzling.
“Aoba, what happened?” Fugaku saw Aoba’s puzzled expression and immediately realized that there was something he did not know.
“Big Brother Fugaku, tell me the truth. Did you really not look for me yesterday?” Aoba did not explain anything to Fugaku. Instead, he asked again.
“What exactly happened?”
Fugaku became nervous after being repeatedly questioned by Aoba.
Yesterday was not a simple day.
For Konohagakure and the Uchiha clan.
Both were unusual.
Aoba repeatedly asked if he had come to find him yesterday.
This meant that Aoba knew something.
For a moment.
Fugaku’s eyes became even more serious.
Aoba took a deep breath and slowly exhaled. From the looks of it, he was trying to ease his mood.
“Big Brother Fugaku.”
“It’s like this…”
“I was already sleeping last night.”
“Someone suddenly knocked on my door and called me.”
“Do you know who knocked on my door?”
Aoba’s expression became serious. He stared at Fugaku seriously, as if he had experienced a supernatural event.
Fugaku’s heart tightened. His purpose for coming here today was to investigate Kenji’s whereabouts!
After yesterday’s mission was over.
Akaru looks for Kenji.
The person who sent the information to the Uchiha clan seemed to have vanished into thin air.
Was Danzo related to Kumogakure?
What kind of role did Danzo play in this matter?
These mysteries would be solved by finding Kenji!
Right now, everyone in the Uchiha clan.
No one knew where Kenji was.
Because of this.
Akaru had just given Fugaku a task, asking him to investigate Kenji’s last movements and find Kenji’s location.
Now, he had just followed the possible whereabouts of Kenji last night and found here in Konohagakure Intelligence Division a person with clues.
But this clue pointed to Aoba.
Now, Aoba said that someone was looking for him.
He immediately thought of Kenji.
“Yes, it’s him.”
Aoba nodded. The expression on his face was still extremely serious. His eyes were fixed on Fugaku as he slowly said, “Guess what why does he want to see me?”
“It can’t be related to me, right?”
Fugaku’s heart tightened.
Combining what Aoba had just said, he had this strange feeling.
Aoba had just asked him why he was looking for him.
Now he wanted him to guess why Kenji was looking for him.
Fugaku thought of this.
An ominous feeling rose in his heart.
“That’s right, it has something to do with you, Brother Fugaku. Kenji came to me and told me that he wanted me to go to the forest on the west side of Konohagakure. He said that you were on a mission there and wanted to see me.” The part that Aoba was talking about was not made up. It was indeed true. This was also why he was very speechless about Kenji’s IQ.
Fugaku couldn’t help but shout and at the same time, his eyes were wide open and there was a look of disbelief in them.
“He actually told you that I was looking for you!”
Fugaku’s heart was instantly in turmoil.
The forest in the west side of Konohagakure!
Wasn’t that the place where they met Danzo and Kumogakure ninjas!
That place was the place that Kenji had informed them!
It turned out that other than informing the Uchiha clan, Kenji had also informed Aoba.
Who else did he inform?
Was there anyone else?
Fugaku’s heart suddenly became heavy. He did not expect that this matter would become complicated in the end.
“Did you go?”
Fugaku’s voice became heavy. His eyes stared at Aoba as if he wanted to see all the thoughts in Aoba’s heart through Aoba’s expression.
This could only be a delusion.
The only expression on Aoba’s face was that of someone who was talking like he was telling a ghost story and seeing supernatural events.
“I didn’t go.”
Aoba shook his head and said, “There has just been a murder case in the village, and now I have to go to such a remote forest. I don’t have the courage.”
“Did Kenji not make things difficult for you?” Fugaku asked. If Kenji let Aoba go so easily, it was not Kenji’s character at all.
Aoba nodded and paused. After a short pause, he said, “He looks like I have to see you. It’s because of him that I don’t dare to go.”
“It’s good that you don’t go!”
Fugaku breathed a sigh of relief. Last night was super muddy water. Whoever went in would be covered in mud.
“Aoba, let me ask you a few questions. This is very important to me. When did you two separate after Kenji looked for you yesterday?” Fugaku forced himself to think about why Kenji told Aoba that he wanted to go to the western forest to find him. However, he did not need to think too deeply about it. He had already guessed it. It was obvious that he wanted to frame him.
“You might not believe it…”
After Aoba finished his introduction, he was ready to enter the mode of making up stories.
“Last night, Kenji blocked the entrance of my room. He wanted me to go to the west forest to find you. I had no choice but to go. I even felt a trace of killing intent from him.”
“That feeling is like…”
“If I don’t go, I might be killed by him!”
“I had no choice but to change my clothes and follow him out.”
“Just when we went out.”
“We met a man in black.”
“He then talk to Kenji then the two of them left together. They didn’t bring me with them. They seemed to think that I was a burden.”
“When Kenji left, he still remind me to go to the west forest to find you. Otherwise, you will be angry with me!”
Aoba immediately fabricated the role of a man in black and pointed the clues in the direction of the man in black to change the key point of Fugaku’s investigation.
“The man in black?”
Fugaku’s face became more and more serious. What happened just now sounded a little ridiculous, but it was really something that Kenji could do.
He had known Kenji for many years.
That person would do what he wanted to do without caring about the occasion or the details.
It was just like in Ramen Ichiraku Noodle House when Kenji asked Mikoto in front of him.
Fugaku knew Kenji very well.
The latter was someone who could completely mess things up in order to target him.
At least the part in front.
It was completely in line with what Kenji could do in his heart.
Man in black?
Why did the man in black suddenly appear in Konohagakure?
“Aoba, do you know who that man in black is?” Fugaku asked in a low voice. His eyes became nervous. He faintly felt that the man in black might be the key person in the entire scheme. He might also be the person who killed that Kumogakure ninja.
“I didn’t hear it very clearly. It seems to be called, what is it again…” Aoba put on a pondering expression.
“Called what?” Fugaku widened his eyes. He thought that Aoba would not have any information, but now it seemed that he had heard some.
“It seems to be called Madara-sama…” Aoba said with a frown as if he was trying to recall the matter carefully.
When Fugaku heard this name, he was stunned for a moment. Then, his eyes widened. In his heart, a legendary figure that everyone in the Uchiha clan knew appeared.
Could it be…
The man in black was Uchiha Madara?!
