L.L.H: Chapter 279: The Power of Destiny


Northwest Konoha, the Borders of the Land of Fire.

A roar emitted after another, as the shouts of two different voices were mixed.

“Madara, do you see it? Tell me, do you see it? The daylight stars!”

“Damn you, old man!”

……..

On the other side, Tobirama and Hashirama learned of Konoha’s current situation from Hiruzen’s mouth.

“You fool!” Tobirama yelled, frowning.

Hashirama sighed, “Hiruzen, after this incident, you will have to talk with my Second Grandpa. The alliance between Konoha and the Uzumaki cannot be ruined by this!”

Hiruzen nodded with a wry smile.

Jiraiya was anxious. They were talking for a while, but they never mentioned the matter of bringing Orochimaru back.

“Jiraiya, stay cool and don’t worry much. Elder Masahiko is here. You don’t need to worry about Orochimaru for the time being.” Sakumo comforted him.

Upon hearing this, Tobirama frowned, then turned his head and said, “Orochimaru, where did you learn the Edo Tensei, and why did you defect?”

When Tobirama was alive, Orochimaru was Konoha’s young genius. He became a Genin at the age of fifteen, and nothing seemed wrong about him.

Orochimaru didn’t explain. He glanced at everyone, then he locked his eyes on Jiraiya for a moment, then his body turned into mud and slowly disappeared.

“And Earth Shadow Clone? When?!”

Hashirama looked at him and said, “When Second Grandpa attacked Madara the first time, he used that brief moment to replace his body with an Earth Shadow Clone. Second Grandpa should have noticed it too.”

On Masahiko’s side, he once again shattered Madara’s sacrificed body and appeared next to Hashirama instantly, “Orochimaru’s clone was lifted, indicating that he’s already far away and thinks he can stay hidden. The Edo Tensei should be lifted soon, is there anything you want to say before that?”
As soon as his voice fell, Hashirama and Tobirama’s bodies emitted a slight white light.

“Second Grandpa, Hiruzen told us about everything.” Hashirama said, “I hope…”

Masahiko sighed and interrupted him, “Is there anything else to say? I will investigate the situation personally then judge.”

Hashirama wanted to persuade him but was interrupted by Tobirama, “Second Grandpa, everything is in accordance with your thoughts. I only hope you can spare Danzo this time, he’s also dedicated to Konoha, but his methods are not appropriate.”

The two disappeared slowly, and Masahiko was taken aback for a moment, “Is it really Danzo’s plot?”

Looking at Hiruzen, the latter seemed like he still doesn’t want to talk.

“Okay, I’ll give you a day to think. Tomorrow I will hear the ins and outs of everything that happened during this period.”

“Jiraiya, you don’t need to feel like you’ve lost your friend. I will chase Orochimaru now.”

“Old man, where do you think you’re going?!” Madara yelled, “You think you can run away from this fight?!”

Masahiko was startled. He didn’t expect Orochimaru to not lift Madara’s summon.

“How about we postpone this one?” Masahiko looked at Madara, who rushed toward him, “I’m afraid that I won’t be able to get any information from him about the Akatsuki’s leader…”

After pondering for a moment, Masahiko extended his hand, “All-Killing Ash Bones!”

……….

At the same time, Konoha Village, Tenten’s home.

A certain fat cat that was forgotten by Masahiko was ruthless, demolishing the fish that was severed to it…

A one-foot (33cm) long fish instantly turned into one-foot-long fish bones in Tenten’s hands.

“Fat cat, you want more? No wonder your owner abandoned you.”

The fat cat didn’t bother to respond, swallowing the fish in her mouth.

After swallowing the food, the fact cat opened its mouth again.

“Fat Cat! You’re not full yet?”

The fat cat looked at the fishbone in Tenten’s hand, opened its mouth at an exaggerated angle, “Ah!”

Tenten’s expression stiffened as she looked at the fish bones that disappeared in her hands.

“Eeeh?!”

……

On Masahiko’s side, he looked at Madara slowly disintegrating and shook his head, smiling.

“I don’t know if we will ever meet again. But you should have known that you can’t face me with half of your strength. If we ever meet again, I hope that you will be stronger.”

“Damn you, old man, just wait for the day that I would be resurrected…” Madara said, as his body was slowly disappearing.

Masahiko turned his head then looked in Hiruzen’s direction, “I will go look for Orochimaru this time!”

As soon as his voice fell, his figure disappeared in place.

Masahiko was confident that he could find Orochimaru because when he first appeared, he did not only stop Orochimaru from putting that Kunai into Madara’s neck, but he also placed a perception-type seal on Orochimaru’s hand.

He originally thought that he could use that to follow Orochimaru and find the Akatsuki’s camp later. He didn’t expect that Orochimaru’s defected on his own, but now that seal came in handy.

Masahiko flickered several times before his figure finally appeared in the center of Otogakure.

Otogakure was a small village, similar to the original Uzumaki village, with a population of only tens of thousands and small land.

As time passed, the sky was getting darker, there were only a few pedestrians on the street, and Masahiko’s sudden appearance didn’t cause any disturbance.

Perceiving his surroundings carefully for a moment, Masahiko sank into the ground for about 100 meters and finally saw a familiar door.

“It’s that kind of material that can block perception again.” Masahiko sighed, “Fortunately, my perception seal cannot be blocked.

Masahiko pushed the door in, “Hello? Is Orochimaru here?”

“Elder, you’re here.” Orochimaru was standing in front of the door, looking like he was waiting for a long time.

Masahiko frowned and asked again, “From where did you get Madara’s cells?”

“Didn’t you already guessed it?”

Masahiko sighed, “Sure enough, it was back then when I fought him, and that’s also how you got my blood, right?”

Orochimaru nodded, “Yes.”

“You need to give it back to me, defection no defection, I don’t care.”

“Sorry, Elder, I’m afraid that I won’t be able to return it to you. I used all of your blood.”

Masahiko’s mouth twitched, “You didn’t do anything strange with my blood, did you?”

Orochimaru shook his head, “How is it possible? Your blood is very precious.”

Masahiko was stunned. His cells shouldn’t be that “precious” back when he fought with Madara, it cannot be compared to a Sage Body human, and the quality of his blood should be much worse than Madara and Hashirama.

“What is so precious about my blood?”

Orochimaru smiled mysteriously, “It contains the power of destiny.”

“Fate? Masahiko looked stunned, thinking when did he got involved in metaphysics.

“Huh?” When he finally reacted, Orochimaru in front of him became a… snakeskin, Masahiko’s perception seal was attacked to this snakeskin.

“Did he learn to do this from Hakuja Sennin? He’s becoming more and more like a snake.” Masahiko looked solemnly, “So what he’s trying to say is… he doesn’t want this laboratory?”

Suddenly Chinese character crossed before Masahiko’s eyes, “Witness and drastically change the side story of Naruto World: Orochimaru’s Defection, and got 10(*8) witness points.”

“The power of destiny…?”
