Reborn in Konoha as the Anbu Torturer - Chapter 200
Hari could be said to be the smartest person in this Kumogakure envoy group.
When he heard that the Hyuga’s dojo had been blown up, he wondered if there was still room for redemption.
However, when he heard that an Uchiha’s jonin had died, his heart chilled a lot. He knew that things had reached a point where it was impossible to salvage. What he had to consider was how to escape unscathed.
Now that he knew that the dead Uchiha even had his Sharingan robbed by Gasshi.
He immediately understood.
It was not a question of mission capability.
Nor was it a question of IQ.
This was simply Gasshi setting him up and wanting to kill him through Konohagakure!
This was a personal grudge!
It was not clear why Gasshi wanted to harm him. There was no reason at all. Usually, there were no problems between the two of them.
“Hari-sama, what should we do now?”
Asked a gentle-looking man in Kumogakure’s envoy group. This man was wearing an ordinary cloth robe and a high hat. He was the Country of Lightning’s civilian staff member, not a ninja, and had no physical combat ability.
“Wait for an opportunity!”
Hari walked toward the window and looked outside through the window.
“If the Third Hokage doesn’t do anything, we still have something to talk about tomorrow.”
“But if Konohagakure wants to surround and attack us…”
“We must rush out!”
“We must not be caught by them!”
“Otherwise, it would be another story…”
Hari had seen through the current situation quite thoroughly. He had studied the Third Hokage’s character quite well and understood how the Third Hokage was indecisive and liked to compromise.
The people of Kumogakure’s envoy group immediately responded.
They had no other choice but to believe in Hari.
While Aoba was sleeping, there was a knock on the door outside his room, which directly woke him up from his sleep.
“Who is it?”
Aoba asked in a bad mood. He frowned slightly, and his eyes suddenly became cold.
‘Why were there so many people coming to his room during this period of time!’
‘Who was it now?’
Aoba was in a bad mood.
In his opinion.
Every time someone came to his room to look for him.
There was nothing good!
Last time, Kenji was like this, and not long ago, Sekai was also like this!
“Aoba, it is me, Minato!”
Minato’s gentle voice came through the door. This voice was not loud, as if it were afraid of being discovered by others.
Aoba was stunned for a moment. He got up from the iron bed, walked to the door, and opened it.
“Why are you here?”
Aoba saw the yellow-haired youth standing outside his room door. The latter still had a warm smile on his face, and a lot of small question marks instantly appeared in his head.
Minato actually knocked on his room door.
This kind of thing could happen.
But it would take a long time to happen!
“You won’t let me in?” Minato glanced at Aoba’s room.
Aoba stepped aside, leaving space for Minato to come in. After Minato came in, he immediately closed the door and turned to look at Minato.
“Did something happen?”
“Why did you come to my dormitory in the middle of the night?”
“I have to make it clear to you…”
“I don’t have a place for you to spend the night here!”
After closing the door, Aoba stared at Minato with a smile on his face. He put down his guard.
Minato was different from the people of the Uchiha clan.
He had a good relationship with him.
Not only that.
Minato had a very good character.
He would never do something like using him to get himself into trouble.
He was one of the few existences that Aoba could be at ease with.
“Something big has happened.”
Minato looked at Aoba and nodded. Then he looked around at Aoba’s room. This was the first time he came to the place where Aoba lived. He wanted to see what kind of environment it was.
He looked around.
His eyes were focused on the box in the corner.
“Isn’t that the box of books I gave you?”
“You haven’t opened it yet!”
“Learning is not something that can be done overnight. You have to persevere every day before seeing the light of day!”
Minato immediately suggested to Aoba. He had nothing to do during this period of time and went to the Ninja Academy to see those students. Unconsciously, he had the habit of giving pointers on the spot whenever he saw something.
Now he saw that Aoba’s box of books had not been opened.
He couldn’t help but preach.
“I just got this box back this night. I plan to read it in the next two days!”
Aoba looked at Minato in a daze. His eyelids kept twitching, and the corners of his mouth also twitched.
“You didn’t come to see me just to see if I read the book, did you?”
“It’s late at night…”
“It’s not necessary!”
Aoba put on an exaggerated expression. He was not acting now but putting himself in his normal setting.
The setting he gave himself was…
He had never gone out of the dormitory.
He had no idea what had happened outside.
So when he heard Minato say that something big had happened.
He instinctively felt that the big thing that Minato was talking about was that he had not read these books.
After sorting out this logic.
Aoba naturally followed this logic.
“This is not the big thing I’m talking about!”
Minato glanced at Aoba helplessly. He no longer bothered about the question of the box of books. Instead, he restrained the smile on his face and turned serious.
“The Third Ninja World War is coming!”
Minato’s voice was low and certain. There was no doubt in his tone. Instead, he directly said the result.
“Do you still remember what we discussed on the Hokage Rock?”
Minato did not give Aoba a chance to interrupt but continued to speak.
It could be seen that.
This time, Minato did not come to discuss things with Aoba. He just wanted to find someone to talk to.
He wanted to express the emotions in his heart.
Because Aoba had talked about this topic with Minato before, the first person Minato thought of when he wanted to say it was Aoba.
“I remember.” Aoba nodded and did not say anything else immediately. Instead, he waited for Minato’s next words. He wanted to hand over this leading topic to Minato, who obviously wanted to say something more in front of him.
“After I left that day, I told Third Hokage-sama about my thoughts after discussing with you. Unfortunately, all of them were rejected.” Minato shook his head and said. There was a helpless and powerless expression on his face.
“Actually, I already guessed this would happen,” Aoba said after thinking for a while.
“You already guessed it?” Minato widened his eyes and looked at Aoba in confusion.
“According to Third Hokage-sama’s character, he will definitely strive for stability when facing a war.” Aoba nodded and added, “If we compromise and make concessions, we still have to pay the price to compensate them. He might as well give this part to Kumogakure to end this matter and not the other forces.”
“That is what Third Hokage-sama meant.” After hearing Aoba’s words, Minato nodded and said, “Third Hokage-sama thinks it is too risky. If Iwagakure plots against us, it will likely cause greater losses. This is something that the village can not bear.”
“What Third Hokage-sama said makes sense.” Aoba nodded.
However, he still felt that the Third Hokage lacked courage.
This kind of method had appeared in the history of China.
Aoba did not think that the Third Hokage had the qualifications to be compared with those ambitious and brave people in the history of China.
Minato suddenly stared at Aoba, his eyes flashing with a strong desire, and he suddenly became serious.
Aoba was shocked by Minato’s sudden appearance. He involuntarily took a step back and the corners of his mouth twitched.
“What are you going to do?”
“If you have something to say, just say it…”
“Don’t stare at me like that!”
Aoba’s eyelids were trembling. He had never seen Minato put on such a posture. The two of them were alone in the same room. It was scary to see such a look in his eyes.
“You still don’t know what happened outside, right?”
Minato did not have the slightest intention of joking. He still had that kind of incomparably serious expression, but his eyes revealed a strong desire.
“What happened outside?” Aoba took the opportunity to ask. He always needed a reasonable reason to know what happened today. Now that this matter was told to him by Minato, it could be said to be the most appropriate.
“Kumogakure intruded and attacked Konohagakure, killed a person of Konoha Military Police Force, and even took away his Sharingan,” Minato said in a low voice. He didn’t explain the matter so clearly but simply described this matter.
“The person who was killed…” Aoba suddenly took a deep breath and put on a very shocked appearance.
“You also know that person. It is Sekai that has a good relationship with Fugaku; it’s really irritating!”
When Minato talked about this matter, his face could not help but be angry. He did not go to the Hokage Building to pressure the Third Hokage. He felt deeply aggrieved by these things. It was a feeling of a huge stone pressing on his chest.
Minato took a deep breath and slowly exhaled, calming himself down.
Then, he turned to look at Aoba again.
“Actually, it’s not just about tonight.”
“There are also some things that the village has dealt with during this period of time.”
“This makes me feel very aggrieved.”
“It’s full of helplessness.”
“It also makes me deeply aware of the importance of strength!”
“I have never been so eager to become stronger like now!”
Minato’s chest heaved up and down. During this period of time, he felt unprecedented powerlessness.
His strength was not weak.
He was an elite jonin at such a young age.
He was also extremely talented.
Just by looking at Hiraishin no Jutsu(Flying Thunder God Technique) created by the Second Hokage, which no one could control, he could easily handle it.
Minato clearly realized that he was not strong enough.
He was not strong enough to control the situation of the whole Ninja World.
He still could not do as he wanted.
This made him watch as the wheels of history rolled over his body, and he was only a member who could go with the flow.
Just as Minato was lamenting his lack of strength.
Aoba’s voice slowly rang out.
“Minato, if you want to become stronger, I have an idea!”
