The next day, in an open space outside of Otogakure.
The sound of weapons colliding emitted.
Ping! Ping!! Ping!!!
Masahiko was once again fighting Hashirama. At this time, the two of them were using the most commonly used weapons, Kunai, instead of their bare hands.
After one last clash, the two of them fell back tacitly.
“It’s doesn’t seem to work. I didn’t develop these techniques to be used with weapons.” Masahiko shook his head gently.
Tobirama, not far away, said, “Your Taijutsu techniques are already very good. When facing an opponent stronger than you, you can buy time with it enough to wait for backup. And when facing opponents who are weaker, you can use these techniques to defeat him, but it comes with a small cost, that it is, it will take longer. If you’re in a rush, you can always rely on your strength and speed to force you victory without using it.”
Masahiko sighed. It’s not that he doesn’t know this, but his personal techniques…
He thought he finally gonna be called the master of the fire dragon techniques!
“Well, for the time being, let me see if I can find a way to add some ultimate moves.” Masahiko was still unwilling to give up.
Hashirama stepped forward with a bitter smile, then said, ”Second Grandpa, since your Taijutsu techniques were successfully developed, can you stop calling me?”
This body of his was going to be “worn out” again.
After all, the sacrifice used to summon him was just a Chunin, and even with the special treatment of Hashirama, it couldn’t last long. Hashirama still needs to fight Masahiko, using Sage Mode. They kept this for a month, and he was already using the third body, which was about to collapse.
Masahiko smiled, “Well, I’ll see you again later then, thanks for the help.”
Although the experimental products of Orochimaru are good, Hashirama’s cells are not infinite.
“Second Grandpa, goodbye.” A smile appeared on Hashirama’s face, then his body slowly turned into pieces of paper and disappeared.
“What about you?” Masahiko turned his head and said.
Tobirama hesitated for a moment, “This body of mine should be able to last for two more days. Grandpa, I want to go back to Konoha.”
Masahiko was stunned, “What about all of that talk about morals and the dead people shouldn’t intervene?”
Tobirama shook his head, “I just want to go back and have a look. I want to see Hiruzen and Kagami again. I won’t intervene. And even if wanted to, it would probably be useless with such a body.”
Masahiko thought for a moment, then smiled and waved his hand, “Okay, go back, and while you’re there, you can teach Hiruzen how to be a Hokage. He only learned half of your methods, and the other half was in Danzo. Since the latter is no longer here, he needs you more than ever.”
Tobirama nodded, then disappeared in place.
Masahiko stood along for a while, shaking his head and laughing, “It will take at most eleven or twelve years….”
After saying this, his figure disappeared, and when it appeared again, he had entered Otogakure and appeared in front of his small wooden building.
Kimimaro and the other two were training, and when they noticed Masahiko, they greeted him.
“Elder, where’s the Second Hokage-Sama?” Karin asked.
“He went where he should be.” Masahiko responded with a smile, “Kimimaro is better now, and our purpose of this trip has been achieved. If nothing happens, we will leave this place tomorrow, you guys. Are there any places you want to go?”
Kimimaro: “I will go wherever God is.”
Karin: “Aren’t we going back to Konoha or the Land of Whirlpools?”
Masahiko shook his head, “The Uzumaki Village should be fine. And I won’t be going to Konoha for now. I will wait a few months and let them have good times on their own. Let’s wander around in the time being, by the way… let me teach you some Taijutsu techniques.”
Sometimes, Masahiko treats people as experimental products… and this was the case.
Hearing the words, Karin rolled her eyes: “Great Elder, let’s go to Sungakure to take a look. It’s pretty close, and I haven’t seen the desert before!”
Masahiko sighed helplessly, “What’s so good about the desert? Think about it again. And after you rethink really hard, come to find me. I’m going to Orochimaru first.”
Seeing Masahiko leaving, the three looked at each other for a moment, then Karin said hopefully, “Kimimaro-Kun, shall we go to the desert?”
“I go where God tells me.”
Karin pouted her lips, “Haku, how about you?”
“I… don’t mind anything.”
These two teammates are really depressing.
Masahiko skillfully opened the entrance of Orochimaru’s lab and stepped inside.
As he walked forward, Masahiko gradually heard a lot of subtle screams.
“Huh? This seems to be Guren’s voice. What is Orochimaru doing?” Masahiko murmured softly, then speeded up the pace.
Pushing open the heavy gate of the lab, the pale face of Orochimaru appeared in front of him. With the constant screams, if really felt like a thriller.
Masahiko looked at Orochimaru angrily, “Dude, you becoming more and more like a snake. Who are you frightening here? I remember when you were young, you were pretty handsome….”
“Elder, have you successfully developed your Taijutsu techniques?” Orochimaru didn’t answer.
“It was successful.” Masahiko didn’t want to talk about this topic, “You know, Tobirama went to Konoha, don’t release his summoning yet.”
Orochimaru nodded, and Masahiko then asked, “What are these screams?”
“Elder, you come with me.”
Masahiko frowned slightly and followed Orochimaru to another room.
The interior of the room was separated by pieces of cylindrical glass. Behind each piece, there was a child screaming in pain, and behind other pieces, there was a stone statue with a human body and a snakehead on its neck.
“This is… Natural Energy?” Masahiko turned his head and asked.
“Yes, I’m trying to give them the Senjutsu Chakra, using a form of a cursed seal.”
Chinese Characters flashed in front of Masahiko’s eyes, “Witness and drastically change the branching story of the Naruto World: Orochimaru’s Curse Seal, get 5(*8) witness points.”
“An unexpected harvest.” Masahiko pondered slightly.
In his memory, Orochimaru invented the curse seal after doing researches on Jugo’s body, but since Orochimaru has learned the Sage Mode in this timeline, this event didn’t occur, and Jugo isn’t part of this group of children.
“Wait a minute… Jugo should be in the Land of Whirlpools. I have totally forgotten about him.” Masahiko scratched his head and turned to Orochimaru, “Why did you bring me here for?”
“Elder, I have something to ask your help for. I remembered that you’re quite skilled in making pharmaceuticals. I need medicine called Sen Pills to accelerate their adaptation to Natural Energy and reduce the risk of failure.” Orochimaru said.
Masahiko sighed slightly, showing a bit of unwillingness, “You should have come to find me sooner. I could have helped you with my Fuinjutsu. At least none would have died. These kids are too young.”
Orochimaru licked his lips, “They came here voluntarily. They have to pay the price if they want to gain strength.”
Masahiko frowned slightly and shook his head helplessly, “Is it really strength… Forget it, provide me with the materials and the recipe, and I will make them for you.
“Then please, Elder….”
