“Great Grandpa, I don’t want to go back, the war is over. I should stay here and practice!” Nawaki reluctantly said.
Yes, the Second Shinobi World War is over. Yet it cannot be said that it was entirely over, only the war between Konoha and Sunagakure ended, after the latter surrendered.
Sunagakure lost a couple of talented puppet masters and other heavy losses in different aspects and finally collapsed.
“Sadly, Chiyo should be… The hatred between ninjas is really difficult to resolve.” Masahiko sighed, ignoring Nawaki complaining aside.
In order to prevent Nawaki from going to the battlefield and give fake Pain the opportunity to kill him, Masahiko ended up training Nawaki for more than half a year.
The current Nawaki has mastered a lot of earth releases Ninjutsu, Hiding in Rock technique, Rock Wall, Earth Substitute, Hiding Like a Mole… Well, all were defensive and escaping Ninjutsu.
Masahiko felt that this was good for him. In the face of someone who can use the Six Paths of Pain, it’s better if he could defend or delay his death for a second, so Masahiko can maybe save him.
Now that the war is over, Nawaki was forced to follow Masahiko, who wants to see Sakumo, the hero who is being called now Konoha’s White Fang. Therefore, after spending the New Year with the clan, Masahiko took Nawaki back to Konoha, with the latter still whining.
“Stop it,” Masahiko sighed, “Compared to your sister, you’re really stubborn.”
Nawaki glanced sadly at Masahiko and didn’t answer.
After a while, Konoha was already in front of them, and the two gatekeepers greeted them. Masahiko took Nawaki the Senju Station.
Briefly exchanged a few words with Mito, and learned that Kushina wasn’t here. Therefore, he left Nawaki there with her and then walked out to find Sakumo.
The Hatake station was small, and there were probably only twenty or thirty chakra reactions inside. Like in the Warring States period, the clan wasn’t prosperous.
Masahiko didn’t walk in directly. After all, he wasn’t as familiar to them as the Senju, so he gave the word to the guards, and waited for Sakumo, who quickly came out.
“Let me congratulate you, Lord Konoha’s White Fang.” Before Sakumo could speak, Masahiko smiled.
Sakumo smiled bitterly, “Elder Masahiko, please don’t make a joke of me.”
Masahiko shook his head, “I won’t! You’re strong now, it has nothing to do with the title, if it were up to me it would be you who the people call the Demigod.”
Masahiko was referring to Hanzo. In his opinion, Hanzo isn’t necessarily stronger than Sakumo.
Sakumo shook his head and invited Masahiko inside his house. A young woman appeared in front of Masahiko.
Masahiko saw Sakumo’s wife for the first time, but as soon as he met her, he was stunned.
Sakumo’s wife is also from the Hatake clan, she had a beautiful face and she was also talented in Ninjutsu. Although there are not many clansmen in the Hatake Clan, all of them were generally very good.
The reason why Masahiko was stunned though wasn’t because of this, but because he actually felt another breath of life inside Sakumo’s wife.
Masahiko froze for a moment, then turned to look at Sakumo with an incomprehensible expression, and said with a smile, “Sakumo, you have just made a name of yourself, but both of you will hear another happy news in a few months!”
Sakumo felt puzzled, then glanced at his wife, who nodded at him, he immediately looked happy and run to her, and the two started whispering and giggling.
Masahiko didn’t mind that, he just found a chair to sit on, and waited for Sakumo to come back again.
About ten minutes later, Sakumo came over with an excited look on his face.
“Did you think of a name for your son?” Masahiko asked.
Sakumo smiled, “Well, we don’t know if it’s a boy yet.”
Masahiko shook his head, “It must be a son, let me give you a name, what about Hatake Kakakeru?”
Masahiko liked Kakashi, but this was an excellent opportunity to harvest some witness points.
Sakumo hesitated, “You want me to call him Kakakeru? Don’t you think it’s a bit sad?”
Masahiko was puzzled, “Why would it be sad?”
“You said Kakakeru, right? If you add Hatake, it will mean a field of emptiness. Maybe Kakashi would be a bit better. A field of scarecrows. That’s a bit cooler, isn’t it?”
Masahiko twitched his mouth, he really didn’t know what Kakashi meant.
He thought secretly, “But how can that be better, a field of scarecrows means that there will be unknown loneliness and pain in his life. Maybe that’s why Kishimoto gave him that name. He lost his father at an early age, lost his teammates when he was a teenager, then lost his teacher…” Masahiko felt speechless, just what kind of a father calls his son a scarecrow!
Sakumo noticed Masahiko’s strange gazes and wondered: “Elder Masahiko is there something wrong?”
Masahiko waved his hand, then gave him thumbs up, “Yea, it’s cool.”
Ignoring the confused expression of Sakumo, Masahiko left the Hatake Clan.
Wondering aimlessly in Konoha, Masahiko went to find Kushina. Because it is February, the Academy was still on holiday. He didn’t know where Kushina went, but he didn’t want to fully open Kagura Mind’ Eye every time he comes to Konoha, it has already caused them a lot of troubles before, so he chose to walk around and find her.
But after wondering for an hour, Masahiko couldn’t find her.
“Where did you go to play? Did you go to see Minato?” Masahiko started daydreaming.
“Forget it, I’ll go back to the Senju Clan, Kushina will have to go back there in the end.”
Masahiko was about to turn around, then suddenly paused again.
“I wonder what Hiruzen is doing. I heard he finally developed his Telescope Technique. Is he peeping on the women’s baths?”
Masahiko found a deserted place and then entered his Kaguya’s Will Mode, hoping that he would get to have a good show in the Hokage Office and have some fun.
After drilling underground, Masahiko wandered directly toward the Hokage Building.
When it comes to concealing the presence, Black Zetsu was the best.
Close to the building, Masahiko went up directly then secretly peeked from the wall with his head out. The picture in front of him was really surprising.
“What’s going on here?” Masahiko glanced. Danzo was also there, and the two were standing next to each other.
“I can’t see the crystal ball…” Masahiko gathered his courage, then peaked out again.
The two were still standing there. Masahiko observed them carefully; they seemed really focused on the crystal ball.
“Don’t you dare to tell me that these two are peeping at the same time on the female baths? I didn’t know Danzo was that kind of person!”
Masahiko’s mind was telling him, no, but his body was honest, and he secretly turned around to get a better look at what inside the crystal ball.
Unexpectedly, they were actually watching a ninja dressed in Kumogakure’s uniform carrying a red-haired girl on his shoulder while being chased by a yellow-haired boy.
Masahiko froze for a long time, then smiled bitterly, “You really gave me a good show…”
