The next day, the sky was bright.
Masahiko and Itachi searched for Shisui all night, then returned to the original location.
“Oh, back to the starting point.” Masahiko looked at Itachi, “Are you sure you’re not lying to this ancestor? I have searched for more than a dozen miles away. There are no traces of fighting. It seems like Shisui just walked away.”
Itachi shook his head, “I’m really not lying to you, ancestor. What should we do now?”
Masahiko said helplessly, “Shisui, this kid is really a trouble maker. He’s too old of running away from home!”
Itachi paused for a moment to process that sentence, then asked, “That Senior Uchiha clansman you mentioned earlier, is she…?”
“She?” Masahiko shook his head and sighed, “She was about the same age as me. She was only 20 years old when she died. Now she should be more than 110 years old. Moreover, she didn’t die normally. And she wasn’t buried in the Uchiha’s ancestral land. It can’t be her.”
Itachi said curiously, “You seem to know her well?”
Masahiko smiled and turned his head to look at Itachi, “She was very beautiful, and… this should go without mentioning, you’re 13 years old, you should pay more attention to beautiful girls. But now, we have to solve this problem with Shisui. You need to focus… Go back and tell them what happened.”
Itachi nodded, his body slowly turned into wood, and the clone was lifted.
Masahiko stood still, with a slightly startled expression, “Based on seniority, Madara had to call her Miss. If I were… Madara would have ended up calling me Second Grandpa. Well, it’s another story…”
After pondering for a long time, Masahiko laughed dumbly: “I’m curious to see what those useless are doing. Let’s go and see check the situation. Shisui is missing for real now. It’s troublesome…”
Ten minutes later, Konoha.
Masahiko frowned and tilted his head to look to the left.
“Obito, come out! Do you think you can hide from me by going into your space?”
A few tens of meters away, the space was slightly distorted, and Obito’s figure slowly appeared, “Master, so you can sense me?”
“I can. It feels like someone is watching me for a distance, but I couldn’t find him, so it shouldn’t be anyone but you.” Masahiko smiled.
Obito scratched his head: “Master, you’re so smart. I have something to do. Let’s go!”
“Stop!” Masahiko was speechless. As soon as he finished appreciating the compliment, he said, “Where are you going? Shisui is okay. Come over here and listen to your Sensei’s analysis.”
Obito obediently nodded and walked over. Masahiko raised his hand to put it on Obito’s shoulder, but it passed through…
“Good boy, you’re getting smarter.” Masahiko turned his head slightly embarrassed and said, “You know, Shisui’s strength isn’t much worse than you. I have found the place where disappeared, and there were no traces of a battle. You have to know that even if it’s me, I wouldn’t have defeated him before he could alert Itachi. So I don’t think that something happened to him.”
Obito mumbled softly, “Itachi has said these things. That damn little brother didn’t take me out with him…”
Masahiko sighed helplessly, “Let’s go now!”
You can sorrow for your broken heart later.
The sun slowly rose in the sky, Konoha Village.
The Senju Clan that had been troubled all night gradually returned to calm.
Shinobi can stay all night, but there are many children and civilian women in the Senju clan, who need to rest after all, and the Uchiha will not be unreasonable to that point.
Now everyone has moved to the Hokage Building.
Because the place wasn’t big enough, there were only six people in the meeting room at the time, Nawaki, Itachi, Hiruzen, Kagami, Fugaku, and Hatsu.
The other two elders were very old and lacking in strength. They couldn’t bear to stay up all night, and they had already gone back to rest.
Not only that, when Masahiko brought Obito into the house, Kagami and Hiruzen moved in sync, supporting their elbows on the desk, obviously feeling a little tried.
“The great-grandchildren are also in their twilight years.”
Masahiko glanced over their gray hair and sighed inwardly. There were also a variety of greetings. Masahiko nodded in response, while his eyes mentioned to Obito behind Kagami.
“Itachi told you, right? There were no signs of a battle. It seems that Shisui left on his own.”
“Okay.” Hiruzen sighed slightly, “Shisui must have discovered something, and he didn’t have time to inform Itachi, so he went by himself. He should be back after a while. Kagami, don’t worry.”
Kagami nodded and stood up, “Elder Masahiko, can I talk to you in private?”
Masahiko was startled and followed out while everyone in the room looked at each other.
Outside the meeting room, Kagami said softly, “You really didn’t find anything?”
“There are indeed no traces of a battle, and there is no Chakra fluctuation within a radius of more than 20 miles.”
Kagami sighed, “But that doesn’t make sense.”
Masahiko laughed and told Kagami about the plan the three kids previously prepared.
“There was such a thing?” Kagami was stunned, “Shisui… No, it doesn’t make sense. There is a difference between being ignorant and the disappearance of a person. He wouldn’t do such a thing!”
“Don’t worry, you have to believe in Shisui’s strength. Maybe he will be back in a few days.” Masahiko comforted him.
Kagami pondered for a moment, “I hope so. Sorry for troubling you.”
“It’s okay. I wanted to help.”
Kagami chuckled, shook his head, then turned and walked back into the meeting room. Everyone’s eyes were locked on him as he squeezed out these words with a slightly tired smile: “Thank you, everyone. It seems that Shisui has really left on his own. It has nothing to do with Itachi.”
“No one will push the responsibility on Itachi. Senju Patriarch can rest assured… cough cough…!”
Patriarch!” Fugaku exclaimed.
Masahiko frowned and pressed his right hand gently against Kagami’s back, performing a medical Ninjutsu: “Kagami, it’s time to take care of your body, and the position of the Uchiha Patriarch should be passed on.”
Kagami stopped coughing and turned, nodding, “In the past six months or so, my health has indeed declined from day to day.”
Hiruzen stood up and said, “I have to go back and rest too. I can’t compete with these youngsters, and I can’t be compared to you.”
“Forget it. You lost when you put me in the same sentence with these youngsters.” Masahiko muttered softly.
“Please wait a minute, Hokage Samag, Kagami-Dono!” Nawaki suddenly said, after hesitating for a moment, he said, “Since we’re here, let’s take care of Sasuke’s issue!”
“Father!” Itachi turned around in surprise.
Masahiko frowned slightly, and Kagami frowned and turned around, “What are you suggesting to solve this matter?”
Nawaki clenched his right hand, glanced at Obito, and turned to Hiruzen, “Hokage-Sama, after so long, Konoha will need to elect the Fifth Hokage.”
Hiruzen was startled slightly, “Yes, elect…”
Kagami smiled, “Elect.”
Masahiko was taken aback, turned to look at Obito, and the corner of his mouth raised, “Elect!”
