L.L.H: Chapter 358: Something Is Wrong

Swordsmanship LV6 (400000/600000)

“That’s LV8 for you. Am I a talented swordsman that only exists every thousand years?” Masahiko smiled and shook his head.

It has been more than half a month since everyone returned from the ruins of that country. Ken, whom Masahiko has saved from the ruins, became Kimimaro’s basic swordsmanship teacher, even though he only intended to teach Handsome. Masahiko felt like spending the time there with them and followed up with gestures. After half a month, his swordsmanship skill rose to the LV8.

After weighing the wooden sword in his hand, Masahiko shook his head and put it aside. LV8 Swordsmanship was enough to guide Kimimaro after leaving the Land of Iron. There was no need to spend more energy, and he felt that swordsmanship wasn’t very suitable for him.

Not far away to his left, Karin and Haku were having an interesting duel. There are dozens of ice mirrors around Karin, who had clay in her hand that could only be used three more times. In other words, she only had three chances to blow Haku out…

Boom! Boom!! Boom!!!

After three consecutive explosions, Haku’s figure appeared behind Karin, and she lost.

Masahiko groaned slightly and took a few steps forward, “Karin, you should learn from Deidara. Say something every time you throw the explosions. It can distract your opponent this way.”

Karin was taken aback, “You want me to say… True art is an explosion? That’s so stupid, Great Elder.”

Masahiko shook his head again and again, “No, no, no, you can say… Yo momma’s so dumb when y’all were traveling to Konoha, she saw a sign that said ‘Konoha left,’ so she went home.”

Karin rolled her eyes and took three more clay parts, “Haku, ignore the elder, let’s continue, I’ll blow you back to Konoha this time!”

“Hehehe.” Masahiko smiled, “Just now when you threw the clay, your face said, ‘I’m gonna kill you bastard.’ Since you’re not expressing yourself with provoking shouts, you keep losing your head. Let the clay do the talk. You don’t need to look ferocious.”

“I know. Come again, Haku. I’ll blow all of your mirrors this time.” Karin said.

Seeing how Haku and Karin started a new round of games, Masahiko turned around and left.

Masahiko never had to worry about Kimimaro’s training. The kid is a hard worker, so he strolled out of the training field of Mifun’s mansion in the Land of Iron.

“There has been no news for more than half a month. It seems that the guy who took away the Rinnegan eyes is probably not coming out again. This made me sure that he deliberately targeted that country.” Masahiko shook his head and sighed, “I don’t know who their ancestors are. How did they offend Kaguya or even gather the courage to do so? Did she want to marry one of them because they’re so pretty…”

Masahiko has some doubts that the so-called destruction and reconstruction of that country before is because of Black Zetsu, who deliberately kept torturing them. This time, it was complete annihilation.

As soon as he walked out of the practice range, Masahiko ran into the hurried samurai Okisuke.

“Elder, I came here looking for you.” Okisuke said quickly, “The Akatsuki you mentioned earlier is here, a man and a woman, talking with General Mifune.”

“Oh?” Masahiko’s expression moved, and he slightly opened his perception ability, and as expected, he sensed Yahiko and Ringo’s Chakra.

“They came here sooner than expected.”

In the main hall of the general’s mansion, Masahiko saw the two of them. Yahiko still has that zeal for peace, and he was persuading Mifune to let the Land of Iron join the Akatsuki peace plan. Ringo looked around bored and inadvertently caught a glimpse of Masahiko, who pushed the door in. At that time… her eyes were about to jump out of her eye sockets.

“Is it so pleasant to see me? Well, to be honest, I prefer not to see your smile too.” Masahiko smiled.

Yahiko turned his head with a surprised look when he heard the sound, “Elder, why are you here?”

“Uh… can you guess?” Masahiko raised his eyebrow.

Yahiko: “…”

Mifune got up, and saluted Masahiko, then turned to Yahiko: “I have learned everything about your peace plan from the Elder, so you need to repeat it. But there is something I want you to tell me the truth about it, Hanzo-Dono’s body. Did you gave it to the puppet master as a reward?”

Yahiko was taken aback, looked at Masahiko, and the latter spread his hands with a smile.

“This old fart, did he come here earlier to speak badly about us?” Ringo whispered.

Yahiko took a deep breath, “General Mifune, it’s true that I gave the body of Hanzo the Salamander to Sasori from the Sand. He has brought too much pain to the Land of Rain over the years….”

Mifune frowned: “No matter what he did in his lifetime, a dead body shouldn’t be desecrated!”

Yahiko shook his head, “I don’t think his sins can be redeemed by mere death.”


Masahiko watched them arguing for a while, feeling quite bored. When he was just about to interrupt, he noticed that Ringo was looking at him… funny?

“What? Hey, hey, I’m too old for you, pointy-teeth!”

Ringo: “…”

She almost unsheathed her Kiba.

Seeing her expression, Masahiko finally remembered that she was his spy. Is there something she wanted to tell him?

Therefore his voice rang in Ringo’s ears: “Boom, boom, boom.”

Ringo: “???”

“You can even understand a secret code. Why did I even hire you?”

Ringo’s face darkened. She gritted her teeth, then said, “Old guy, where is the toilet?”

As soon as Yahiko heard that, he stopped then asked Mifune, “Your Excellency, please send someone to take my companion to the toilet.”

“No, I’m going too,” Masahiko said with a smile.

“Then please, Elder.”

Masahiko glared, “What are you looking at? Let’s go. This Ancestor himself will lead you to the way.”

The two walked out of the main hall of the general’s mansion back and forth, then Masahiko turned his head and said, “What’s the matter. I’m really glad that you still remember my kindness. I thought you had regarded yourself as Yahiko’s girl a long time ago.”

“Thank you for your kindness.” Ringo grinned and then quickly hid her teeth…

“Don’t be afraid. I won’t hit you.”

Ringo paused and then changed the subject, “Old man, don’t you feel that something is wrong with Yahiko?”

“Well, if you’re asking for my opinion, you better address me more properly, or else I might rethink the matter involving me elbowing your teeth.” Masahiko stared coldly, “Then what’s wrong with him?”

Ringo gritted her teeth again.

“He’s always very enthusiastic when he’s in front of you, but at other times when he mentions you, his expression will change. This was the case in Iwagakure before. Face with the oppression of these two great powers, he refused to ask for your help again.”

Masahiko was silent for a moment, then sighed and nodded, “I see.”
