L.L.H: Chapter 222: I Can’t Smile


In the ward, Masahiko rushed and drove the three kids out, leaving only Kushina and Tsunade.

Kushina insisted on staying, and Tsunade wanted to see what kind of special medical Ninjutsu Masahiko was talking about… She didn’t quite believe in Masahiko’s medical Ninjutsu.

Masahiko glanced at them, then sighed. Today is the day that his morals will be thrown.

Masahiko rolled up his sleeves, “Help Minato up and let him bite my arm.”

This ability is similar to what Karin used in the original. He only unlocked it after his Yin and Yang release reached LV9. But he still doesn’t understand its principle since he never used it before…

Kushina looked weirdly at Masahiko and when he heard these words, “Grandpa, what are you doing?” Masahiko smiled bitterly. This gonna be really hard to explain.

“This is a special ability of mine. It can cure all wounds with one bite.”

Tsunade also looked curious. She had never heard of such a thing.

“Okay, just stop looking at me like this. This is the first time I use this ability, so it’s normal if you’ve never heard of it.”

Kushina supported Minato and helped him bite on Masahiko’s arm.

The wound on Minato’s abdomen healed quickly, and Masahiko felt a little loss of body. Looking at the property bar, he couldn’t find any changes.

“I think it’s related to vitality, but not much, and it didn’t affect my age too. There wasn’t any increase.”

Masahiko frowned, looked at how Minato was no longer pale and took his arm away.

“Grandpa, Minato hasn’t fully recovered yet,” Kushina said anxiously.

“But, he’s almost recovered. If I keep this any longer, I might lose my life.” Masahiko said. But in fact, he felt perfectly fine. He could even sense that Minato would have woken up if he kept healing him for a few more seconds. But then the two of them will look at each other, and it will be so awkward…

Kushina nodded, then she carried Minato back to his bed.

“Great Grandpa, what was that just now?” Tsunade looked curious.

Masahiko felt awkward at first, but he then figured out where the awkwardness was coming from. Kushina called him Grandpa, but Tsunade calls him Great Grandpa.

“This generation is really messy…”

“Don’t tell anyone about this technique that you’ve just seen. This a technique that rarely shows up in the Uzumaki Clan.”

Tsunade nodded, but she couldn’t help but feel weird too. The way this technique works is so embarrassing, especially if it’s your grandpa who’s being bitten.

Masahiko smiled bitterly; he lost all of his integrity in one second, so he had no choice but to wave his hand and walk out.

“Elder Masahiko, how is Sensei?” Kakashi asked while the other two kids looked hopeful.

“He will be okay. Minato will wake up in an hour or two. Then he will just need to rest for two days.”

With a smile on his face, Obito was about to rush in, but he was stopped by Masahiko.

“Don’t rush in. You will disturb your Sensei and his wife. Tell me, what did that crazy old man look like?”

Obito hesitated, but Kakashi said, “Earlier that day, Sensei led us to take our first mission in Yugakure, but on the way, that “crazy old man” showed up and immediately attacked us.”

“Why did he directly attack you?” Masahiko was taken aback. The Akatsuki has nothing to do with Minato…

“Yes, he attacked us first. Thinking of that, I remember that crazy old man was mumbling something when he rushed over.”

Masahiko nodded, “So he might be really crazy? The only ability and no brain type of villain?” Masahiko felt that this guy might be an experimental product, which Jashin took under his wing before Hidan took over.

After hearing the battle details, Kakashi’s story was no different from what Masahiko has imagined. Minato easily pierced his chest using a Kunai, but wasn’t affected by that and managed to scratch his body and activate the curse.

Fortunately, Minato felt that something was wrong in time, so that crazy guy didn’t manage to hit his vitals, and he barely repelled the opponent before he passed out. After that, he was escorted back by the three kids.

“How can Minato be so careless?” Masahiko sighed and waved his hand, gestured for the three kids to go check on their teacher, then he walked out of Konoha Hospital heading toward the Hokage Building.

“Elder Masahiko, how is Minato?” Hiruzen greeted him.

“He’s okay. How are you gonna deal with this matter? Who did you send after the Akatsuki?” It was already two days since Minato was injured, or else he would have gone there personally.

“I’ve sent Jiraiya and Orochimaru after them, but I’m feeling a little uneasy.” Hiruzen looked worried.

“You’ve sent both? Then you don’t need to be worried. Nothing wrong will happen.” Masahiko nodded. If the two worked together, it’s unlikely that anyone could beat them.

Masahiko didn’t see Jiraiya in the ward, so he guessed that he already went to avenge Minato. But he didn’t expect Orochimaru to go with him.

Hiruzen shook his head, “No, they only went there to investigate, but it’s taking a bit longer than expected. They should be here by now.”

“It’s okay. Maybe they found a lead and stayed for a bit to confirm the information. They are strong, and dealing with the Akatsuki won’t be a problem for them.” Orochimaru has also learned the Sage Mode, and Jiraiya’s strength should be at its peak by now.

Hiruzen nodded, “Since the last time they attacked Konoha, they haven’t made a move for a long time. I don’t know why the Akatsuki suddenly decided to attack Minato. Something like this might drive the Shinobi World into chaos…”

Hiruzen was anxious.

“It has nothing to do with me. It’s your job to take care of this.” Masahiko waved his hand with a grin and walked out, leaving Hiruzen with a wary smile.

Nothing is happening for the time being, and Masahiko planned to go home and see his girl, but he didn’t expect that Sakumo would appear in front of him again.

“What now? What’s the matter?”

“Minato woke up.”

Masahiko was startled. It was only ten minutes ago.

“So what? I won’t go.” Masahiko was still embarrassed to see Minato, “… Wait… Damn it. I’ll go.” He had no choice. He was hoping to get more information from the man himself.

Back to the ward again, Minato has woken up with a sunny smile on his face and was trying to comfort Kushina and the three kids. However, the moment he saw Masahiko, his face stiffened.

Masahiko was startled too and immediately looked at Kushina, who was laughing.

“You…” Masahiko didn’t know what to say for a while, she couldn’t even keep it a secret for an hour…

After he took a deep breath, Masahiko helplessly said, “I knew that I shouldn’t let you see it…”

After that, he looked at Minato, “Why did you act so careless? This isn’t you, Minato. Many people in the Shinobi World can survive even after piercing their hearts. I’m sure that you know that.”

Minato smiled bitterly, “It wasn’t that… When my Kunai pierced his heart, he surprisingly asked: ‘Are you really big bro Minato?’ at that moment, I dropped my guard, and he…”

Masahiko smiled and shook his head, “You shouldn’t be caught by such a simple sentence. How could you be the big brother of an old man.”

After that, Masahiko tried hard to keep his smile, but he couldn’t do it anymore…
