Infinite Clone System - I.C.S Chapter 104: Feelings
“Hey, stop pretending, you’re not injured at all, right?”
He asked his question with a questioning look on his face, then he put the hooded man down on his back.
Although the words were questions, Shisui said them in a positive tone.
Before the situation get worst, he took the man away without paying attention to his identity.
But Alex Mercer did not answer his question directly, but said in a positive tone too: “You are Uchiha Shisui.”
“You know me?”
Shisui questioned, as he know he had never seen this person before. But the Shinobi world is not the same as the information explosion of the 21st century, so even if it is a big name, then you have only heard of the name, but you don’t necessarily know what he looks like.
Although he made a name for himself in the Third Shinobi War, he is still far from being famous like the Three Legendary Sannin or the yellow flash.
“Among one of the demons I devoured, there are memories of you. My name is Alex Mercer and I have the same goal as you, however, I need to meet Banner first.”
Murcer turned his head and then said, “Let’s go, this is not far from the demon’s nest, they will find us soon.”
Although there were doubts in his mind, Shisui hesitantly led the way, but not to the place of rendezvous with Banner.
After all, Shisui is not a fool, It is impossible for him to take Mercer to Banner’s place after saying his name. What if he has any bad intentions?
So he walked and asked, “Who are you? What is your relationship with the demons? And why do you know about Banner?”
In the middle of running, Mercer replied, “I know you don’t trust me, but I’m really on the same side as you, and not long ago I fought alongside your Konoha’s Jiraiya and Orochimaru and Namikaze Minato.”
“What? Namikaze Minato? And Jiraiya-sama and Orochimaru-sama?!” Shisui was astonished, in these times with Banner, the two of them didn’t hear about what was happening outside their window most of the time, it is unclear to them what happened in this short period of time.
Could it be that ……
Shisui knew that his Uchiha clan are in charge of the demonic energy in Lieduo Land, and to collect another demonic energy, the village would definitely send people, maybe it was just what Mercer said, they sent Orochimaru and Jiraiya and Namikaze Minato.
(What kind of power is it that allows this powerful ninja to fight alongside those three?)
It’s the Demons again!
Shisui made a judgment in an instant
“That’s right, if you don’t believe me, you can ask your Konoha people.”
“This…” Shisui hesitated a bit. He won’t know what the people in the village would say when they knew about his actions. However, he felt that there was a high possibility that he would be called back to the village. After all, it was impossible for the head of the clan to let a Mangekyō Sharingan genius go to the Demon’s stronghold alone.
That’s why he didn’t inform the village where he was.
But now he knew that he had no chance if he faced them alone without any support from the clan and the village.
“If you can’t do that now, you can go and tell Banner about me. He must have heard my name.”
As if seeing Shisui’s concerns, Mercer made another suggestion.
“Okay…” Shisui nodded after hesitating for a moment, then separated a clone and ordered him to go to Banner’s place.
The two of them reached the top of a mountain peak. From here, they looked around to see the lush green forest, undulating with the breeze like a pool of clear water. Above them is the blue sky, and a few white clouds turned into various shapes and slowly floated in the sky.
“I’m curious, what did you mean by devouring earlier?” The two of them sat on the ground, looking at the rare beauty, then Shisui asked.
“It’s my special ability. In the words of your ninjas, it’s the bloodline limit.”
Alex Mercer repeated what he said to Jiraiya and the others, and then stood up slowly.
He walked to the edge of the cliff and looked down from above, the tall trees were not worth mentioning in front of this majestic mountain. This is a height that is enough to scare people with acrophobia to death, but Mercer was leisurely and content as if he was standing on the ground.
“All these years I have been wondering if I am still the original Alex Mercer after absorbing the memories of so many people?”
“I have a memory from someone named Yoko Yoshina in my head, and a memory from other named Hikaru Pukou. If necessary, I can play them perfectly, so am I just playing the identity of a guy named Alex Mercer, or is he just me?”
With a melancholy expression on his face, he sighed.
At this moment he stood alone at the top of the world, the cold wind whistling through, as if the world wailed for him.
The helplessness and sadness in these words made Shisui a little overwhelmed, he never had the ability to comfort people, or maybe the Uchiha never had the idea of comforting people in their brain circuits.
“The real me…?” Shisui put his hands behind his head, and then lay down, looking at the white clouds dissipating under the influence of the wind, he couldn’t help but sigh, “This is a ninja world, For certain things, even if we have to become another person, we will not hesitate.”
As a committed student, Shisui has seen in textbooks that to become a good spy, the ninja has to completely brainwashes himself to play another person.
In the Third Shinobi War, there were many such people, and without the information they passed on, the war would have gone on even longer.
The war is not only done by ninjas. Those who are not well-known and hidden behind the scenes may play a greater role.
Mercer shows that he’s not a talker, he just stood quietly at the very edge of the cliff, like an old man watching the vicissitudes of life in silence.
Shisui didn’t know what to say for a while, so he had to lie on the ground without making a sound.
So the two of them maintained this eerie serenity until the arrival of Shisui’s clone and Bruce Banner.
Although Banner did not have the terrifying power of the Hulk in his normal shape, he still had the demonic energy of the mountain in his body, and the power of the demonic energy was enough to support him to quickly climb to the top of the mountain.
Shisui stood up, then released the clone, with a sigh of relief.
His uncomfortable situation just now made him can’t know what to do or say next, but now he can wait until Banner arrives.
“You came.” Hearing the sound behind, Mercer said lightly without turning his head.
“Yes, I’m here.”
Banner nodded at Shisui, and then turned his gaze to Alex Mercer.
