Reborn in Konoha as the Anbu Torturer - Chapter 170
Aoba stared at the unhappy child, and his eyes instantly froze.
He recognized this child.
It was Uchiha Obito!
Aoba had seen the story of Obito countless times in Naruto’s anime, so he was very familiar with Obito.
Obito at this time.
He was still in a relatively innocent period, and the main tone in his heart was still positive.
After Obito finished speaking.
He raised his hand and pushed up his goggles.
He rubbed his eyes.
He wiped away the tears that he had accidentally shed.
He did not want Rin to see his cowardly side, even though she did not look at him.
This was a scene that Obito thought no one would notice.
But Aoba has seen all of them.
Aoba slowly let out a sigh of relief. He didn’t know what to say, and his mood was strange.
After he came to the Ninja World, he had seen Kakashi and Obito, but he had never seen Rin.
Whether it was Obito, Kakashi, or Rin, they were all the same generations.
At the moment, they were only four or five years old.
In the modern world, they were only at preschool age.
Aoba thought of how he was still playing with mud at home at this age, but Obito had already begun to consider his life.
Wasn’t this a little too early to mature?
Even if the Ninja World was cruel, and the children were early to be sensible, this was still a little too early.
Aoba sighed in his heart. However, his target this time was not Obito. Moreover, he did not want to have anything to do with him. Then, he continued to walk in the direction of the Ninja School.
At this time.
After Obito finished venting his emotions, he walked out of the forest and stared at Aoba through the goggles.
Aoba’s eyebrows jumped. Although he was not a girl and did not care so much about his age, this kind of address made him a little shocked, a person who was only ten years older than Obito.
“Do I look that old?”
Aoba turned his head and glared at Obito. Wasn’t this person very good at helping grandma cross the road? How can he speak without even knowing his seniority?
“Big brother, you are that Ramen Ichiraku’s Big Brother. I remember you. Back then, you told me that I shouldn’t easily tell my dream.” Obito sprinted towards Aoba with an innocent smile on his face. He looked like a piece of white paper that had yet to be smeared with any color.
Aoba ignored Obito. He turned his head and did not say anything else, and continued to walk forward.
Obito called him big brother.
Then, this matter was over.
Even if there were no such things.
He did not intend to tangle with Obito.
Aoba had no intention of communicating with Obito at all. In his opinion, this person was not as good as Fugaku and belonged to a typical white-eyed wolf.
(TL note: 白眼狼 (báiyǎnláng)” translates literally over to “white-eyed wolf.” Just by grasping the nature of the literal words used, you can get an idea that this is clearly describing someone who might be vicious.
Wolves are known for being combative, vicious, and fierce, not to mention unappreciative and cold. So someone whose incapable of expressing gratefulness and appreciation and even bites the hand that feeds him might be called a “白眼狼 (báiyǎnlánɡ).)
Even if Minato and Kushina treated Obito like family, he still repaid their kindness with ingratitude.
This kind of thing.
Aoba would not talk about right or wrong.
Everyone’s values and worldview were different.
This was a normal thing.
It was like how he preferred a quiet life and was unwilling to be disturbed.
Perhaps Obito also had a convincing reason!
It was just that…
To Aoba, this person gave him a very indescribable feeling.
It was like a dog that was not well kept.
No matter how good he was normally, he could bite him back at any time.
This kind of thing was rooted deep into the bones and cannot be easily changed at all.
Even if Aoba changed his situation, who could guarantee that there would be no accidents in Rin’s life? If there were any accidents, this guy would open his Mangekyou Sharingan and fast-forward directly to the relatives who don’t recognize him and want to engage in Infinite Tsukuyomi and World Destruction.
Who could withstand this!
If he didn’t know anything about the future, then forget it.
As a transmigrator.
Who would give their true feelings to Obito?
Aoba didn’t even want to say a word to Obito. He directly walked in the direction of the Ninja School.
At the same time, Obito was about to return to the Ninja School.
So the two of them walked in the same direction.
Obito followed behind Aoba, his dark eyes staring at Aoba’s back through the goggles while deep in thought. No one knew what he was thinking.
After a few seconds.
Obito immediately chased after Aoba.
Walking next to Aoba, he looked up at him with a puzzled expression on his face.
“Big brother, how many people do you think want to be a Hokage?” Obito asked with his head tilted.
“…” Aoba directly ignored Obito, as if he had not heard him.
“Big brother, do you think I can become a Hokage?” Obito asked again.
“…” Aoba still did not say anything.
“Big brother, who do you think between Kakashi and me is more likely to become the Hokage?” Obito asked again. He seemed to have accepted that Aoba would not care about him and was looking for a slightly familiar stranger to reveal a bit of his heart.
All of a sudden.
Aoba stopped in his tracks.
Before Obito could react and took a few more steps forward; then, he immediately stood still and turned around to look at Aoba.
Obito’s face was full of doubts. He couldn’t understand Aoba’s behavior. He didn’t have much understanding of the adult world.
“Kakashi,” Aoba said lightly.
Obito immediately followed Aoba’s line of sight and looked in the direction of the Ninja School, but he did not see anything.
Then he looked around again.
He still did not see Kakashi.
“Big brother, where is Kakashi?” Obito asked in confusion.
“I mean the question you just asked me. Between you and Kakashi, who is more likely to become the Hokage?”
There was no expression on Aoba’s face, and his eyes were cold and indifferent.
“My answer is Kakashi!”
After finished speaking.
Aoba once again took a step forward.
He directly walked past Obito, brushing past him.
Obito didn’t call out to Aoba but just stood there in a daze, with a sad expression.
This sadness only lasted for a few seconds.
Obito clenched his hands into fists, and the eyes behind the goggles flashed with a strong determination.
“I will definitely become the Hokage!”
“I want to become the Hokage before Kakashi!”
“I won’t lose to Kakashi!”
Obito shouted with determination as if he was talking to Aoba and himself.
Aoba heard Obito’s words.
However, he didn’t pay any attention to him.
When he was watching Naruto Anime, he had thought about this problem.
If Obito returned to the village, was there a possibility that he could become the Hokage?
At that time, he did not have an answer.
That was absolutely not going to happen.
An Uchiha Hokage would not appear in Konohagakure!
This was not a problem of prejudice.
Instead, it had been established since the second generation Hokage.
The people of the Uchiha clan, no matter how kind they were, would find it difficult to gain any prestige and support from the Konohagakure populace.
The prejudices of the human heart.
It was like a mountain.
No matter how hard you tried, it was difficult to shake it.
Not to mention the three-generation Hokage period, the Hokage has gradually entered the mode of direct lineage inheritance.
In Aoba’s opinion.
If there were no Third Ninja War, even Minato would not be able to sit in the Fourth Hokage position.
Not to mention things that happened or didn’t happen to Obito.
If Obito really returned to Konohagakure after the Third Ninja War and still wanted to become the Hokage.
The Fifth Hokage candidate would still not be Obito.
In that case.
There was also no reason for the Third Hokage to be reinstated.
But the Fifth Hokage would be Sarutobi Asuma!
At that time, when Asma reached the Sixth Hokage generation, he would pass the Hokage position to Minato’s son, Naruto.
A few years later.
Naruto would pass the Hokage position to Sarutobi Konohamaru.
From Sarutobi Konohamaru to…
