L.L.H: Chapter 258: Spy

It wasn’t a whim for Ringo to join the Akatsuki. Masahiko has long planned to plant a spy there.

Over the years, it has always been the Akatsuki in the dark and him in the light. He thought of hiding too, but this always felt stupid, god knows when the enemy will appear and how much he will have to wait.

So he decided to take the initiative to attack.

Then he had to think of a suitable candidate for spying. Obito was always the best choice since the Akatsuki’s leader is always working on correcting the plot, he will welcome him there, but in the end, Masahiko couldn’t do it because it was too dangerous.

As for doing it personally… although, he thinks he’s too good when it comes to spying, one mistake and he will blow up his only chance since they will become vigilant.

This time he had Ringo in his space, he never thought of this before, but just after taking a blow from her, he suddenly discovered some of her “special qualities.”

Masahiko’s identity wasn’t exposed in Kirigakure; even if Ao had some speculation, he can’t be sure. Ringo “disappeared” in the chaos. No one saw him take her, so they will just think that she has escaped.

“You said the Akatsuki? The organization that controlled the Third Mizukage?” Ringo said weakly.

She hasn’t eaten or drinks for more than three days.

Masahiko smiled and threw a sealing scroll to her, which contained food and water. Masahiko didn’t believe that she will try to run.

Looking at the opposite side, releasing the seal on the scroll, then grabbing the food and eating without saying a word, Masahiko smiled and said, “Yes, the Akatsuki. I need you to join them and gather information about them for me. And it’s best if you could figure out the identity of their leader.”

Ringo didn’t speak a word and kept eating and drinking.

Masahiko wasn’t in a hurry and waited for her.

His sealing scroll stored enough food for a month, yet she managed to eat one-tenth of it. It seems that she was starving.

Ten minutes later, she finally raised her head, then said, exposing her pointy teeth, “Aren’t you worried that I would really join the Akatsuki?”

Masahiko frowned, “Oh no, we can still speak well without exposing them.”

Masahiko suddenly had the urge to knock out all her teeth… too ugly.

Ringo chocked, unable to figure out what’s going on in Masahiko’s head.

Masahiko shook his head, raised it, then sighed, “Ringo, I’m afraid you don’t know yet, but you’re gonna die soon!”

Ringo kept silent for a long time, then she laughed loudly, “Hahahahaha… I have long heard that although the Great Elder of the Uzumaki is strong, he has a weird character, and I lived to see it today, and you’re really is!”

Masahiko’s face darkened, “Who made such a rumor? And you have a weird face, how do you dare to laugh at me?”

It’s no wonder that Ringo has such an attitude in front of Masahiko. Although she was the youngest member of the Legendary Swordsmen of the Mist, in her 30s, she was still one of the strongest.

People in Kirigakure call her a Genius Kunoichi, and everyone’s hope for her is to become one of those few people at the peak of the world. In other words, to achieve the SS- Rank.

“You said I’m gonna die soon. Do you mean you’re going to kill me?”

Masahiko sighed, “Although I don’t want to act that way, it turns out that ordinary people do have limits. But I think you already know that.”

Ringo was taken aback, then she sneered, “The older you are, the timider. Isn’t limit exists to be broken?”

“Of course, you can keep what you’re doing. There will always be geniuses with perseverance, but if you break it with external force, you will eventually suffer serious damage.”

Seeing how Ringo looked stunned, Masahiko sighed in his heart.

Ringo is indeed a rare genius. She has trained her Lightning Release to a high level, which is close to Masahiko’s LV8.

But after sensing it at close range, Masahiko found that the opponent’s limit should be level seven, and the subsequent progress should be forcibly stimulated by Kiba, the thunder sword. It can be said that she will live at most to forty, and if she continues to practice the same way, I’m afraid that the day when her Lightening Release breakthrough to LV8 will be the day she dies.

Ringo pondered for a long time, then she smiled and said, “So what? Are you telling me to stop practicing?”

Masahiko smiled, “Only temporarily. If you succeed in joining the Akatsuki, I will give you the medicine that will help repair all the damage you’ve taken over these years.”

Masahiko has no way to break the limit of the mortal body, but if she’s using Kiba to break that limit, then Masahiko can use medicine to make up for the physical damage.

Seeing that Ringo has fallen into deep thought, Masahiko didn’t urge her to give him the answer. These kinds of things cannot be settled overnight.

Masahiko took this opportunity to play with the fat cat and make up for it for the last two days.

After half an hour, Ring finally spoke, “How can I trust you?”

Masahiko was taken aback, “You can’t.”

Ringo thought for a moment, then said, “I will trust you this time.”

Masahiko: “…”

“But, if you want me to do my job quickly and proficiently, you must share with me everything you know about the Akatsuki first.”

Masahiko smiled, “You will most likely be exposed if you know what I know. You only need to know that their intelligence network is very strong, and their leader is powerful. If they expose you, I’m afraid you will die.”

“You can’t just join the Akatsuki. You will have to pretend first that you’re a rogue ninja… well If you make it to the Bingo Book. With your strength, the Akatsuki should take the initiative to invite you… probably.” Masahiko was a bit uncertain.

Thinking of their previous recruit Juzo, Masahiko felt that Ringo should be fine.

“Oh, it’s a difficult task.” Ringo began to laugh again.

Masahiko frowned, then waved his hand, and the two appeared outside.

“We’re southwest of Konoha. You can take care of the rest by yourself. Join the Akatsuki and contact me. If you fail, you don’t have to come and find me. As long as you are no longer hostile to the Uzumaki or Konoha, you can consider yourself free. But I must say that you won’t live to your forty without that medicine.”

“Forty, huh?” Ring lowed her head slightly, “Hehe, then I must really thank you for not killing me.”

“Huh?” Looking up, she realized that Masahiko has disappeared.

Two kilometers away, Masahiko breathed a sigh of relief, “Scare teeth… I hope that I made the right move this time.”

Suddenly, Chinese characters crossed before Masahiko’s eyes, “Witness most and completely change the Side Story of Naruto World: The Fourth Mizukage got 10(/2)(*10) witness points.”

Masahiko got slightly happy, “Finally, has Mangetsu taken over the position? I have 1210 witness points now, and Optimus Prime should also be considered as my participation in this war. I should still be able to earn more points. If I could just do more…”

Masahiko shook his head, “Don’t give up. I just need to go back to Konoha! To… cure infertility!”

“Just wait for me!”
