L.L.H: Chapter 53: Watching and Helping! (End of Volume 1)

With the end of Masahiko and Madara’s battle, the period of the Warring States has finally come to an end, and Masahiko also gained 20 witness points.

Madara Uchiha and Hashirama Senju agreed to reconcile with all of the other shinobi clans and formed an alliance, a society, a new village, this was the formation of Konohagakure, the village hidden by leaf.

“Second Grandpa, can’t the Uzumaki really join the Konohagakure?” Hashirama asked.

Masahiko smiled bitterly, “I’m sorry, but we really can’t.”

Over the years, the Uzumaki has become the “biggest” family in the Warring States, the population has reached one million, the number of the shinobi is around ten thousand, and more children are getting born every day. Even Masahiko is thinking about “family planning.”

“If the Uzumaki joins Konoha, then I’m afraid that you will not be building a village but rather a country,” Masahiko explained.

“Hmph, old guy, Konoha is better without you anyway.” On the side, Madara said resentfully.

Masahiko felt speechless and didn’t know how he possibly offended Madara.

“I will talk to my nephew when I go back, the Uzumaki will always be an ally to Konoha.” Masahiko said, then looked away, “I will often pass by, a village without war, isn’t bad for an old man.”
Madara then snorted, “Old man, I don’t think you have much time to live, so you better take care of yourself!”

Masahiko ignored him, then he asked Hashirama, “What about Tobirama? Why I don’t see him?”

“Oh, hahaha… Tobirama is busy with the arrangement of the clan.” Hashirama replied with a laugh.

Masahiko shook his head and smiled, “Been a good friend of mine… Such a pity, I can’t say goodbye.”

“Okay then, I’ll go back.”

Masahiko bid farewell to Hashirama and then return to the Uzumaki.

Back in the Uzumaki…

Masahiko saw crowded and noisy people and sighed.

“I almost forgot, in three days it will be New Year!”

“Sensei! You are back!” A familiar voice greeted Masahiko. He turned around, then he twitched his mouth slightly and bowed his head…

“Kenichiro, why are you talking to me upside down?”

“Sensei, this is my new training. I’m gonna stand upside down and walk around the village.” Kenichiro replied loudly.

“Well, you can go…” Masahiko turned around and quickly walked away, with how crowded the Uzumaki now he doesn’t want people to think he took a weirdo as a student.

“Oh!” Kenichiro replied.

“Wait, come back! What about Yuriko?” Masahiko stopped Kenichiro and asked.

“Oh yeah, I almost forgot! She’s at Nanako’s….”

Masahiko waved his hand, “I see!”

Masahiko then traversed the ever vast Uzumaki village, and his thought gradually drifted away.

“Eight years ago, she was just a girl who poured a bucket of cold water on me, now is already becoming a mother? Time sure flies fast…” Masahiko thought, he smiles a little. “Ahhh… How did I got more sentimental lately, reminiscing old memories, I’m sure getting old.”

“Thinking about it, I lived for 24 years before, since now I’m 66 years old. I’m actually 90 years old, the life on an ordinary person…”

“But I can live for even more 90 years and do even more! Masahiko-Sama’s life will never be ordinary!”

While lost in his thought, Masahiko didn’t realize that he already reaches the clan hall.

“Uncle! You’re back? Did Uchiha Madara win against Senju Hashirama? I know it! He’s a beast!” The Patriarch said the moment he saw Masahiko.

Masahiko got irritated. “I’m the one who fought Madara.”

“Second-Uncle… But everyone has seen the towering wooden palisade and the blue Susanoo.” The Patriarch clearly doesn’t believe him.

Masahiko got more irritated. Madara used his Susanoo but to fight him, and the giant wooden palisade was only there to protect the Senju’s Land.

After thinking about, Masahiko didn’t explain it further. His supreme power remains unknown… He’s happy about it.

“Well, it was won by Hashirama. The Senju and the Uchiha are united now, and created a village called Konoha.”

The Patriarch’s expression suddenly changes, and the politician who had more than 20 years of experience as a patriarch suddenly thought about this and its impact on the world.

After the establishment of Konoha, even if Hashirama become the leader, it would be hard to maintain such an intimate relationship between them because now not only the Senju but Uchiha and other clans are also part of this new village.

“Wow, the response is instant!” Masahiko chuckled. “Although we cannot join Konoha, we still should at least have our name in their alliance, and maybe send some of our people there to create a tribe.”

The Patriarch hesitated…
“Come on, big nephew, didn’t you want to establish a country?” Masahiko scratched his head.

The Patriarch smiled.

“A patriarch always needs to walk a straight path. Don’t you want to make a big name for yourself?” Masahiko smirked, “I’m in my fifties, and I can still be at your service for more several years.”

The Patriarch took a look at Masahiko.

“Hey, your second uncle here is special!” Masahiko glanced at him.

“After the establishment of Konoha, other major countries will also establish their own hidden village, if we are not tied with Konoha by then, we will end up eating jujube pills!”
(T/N: Jujubes have been used in traditional medicine for anxiety and insomnia.)

Masahiko delivered a solid argument. The Patriarch now began to think Masahiko’s unrealistic idea is making sense.

In fact, it’s not unrealistic. With Masahiko’s current strength, he’s not afraid of other parties. However, Masahiko didn’t want to be tied to the Clan all the time.

After the New Year, Masahiko walked down a familiar street, thinking that it won’t take a lot of time before the village is fully established, “This year can be said to be the end of the Warring States Period…”

In the warring states period, Masahiko has lived for 67 years, the first 48 felt like it was wasted away, but the last 19 years has been a blast for him.

“After the establishment of Konoha, I will be able to settle down a little bit and use some of my points, I will also have the chance to see some of the characters that I haven’t seen before in the past…”

Konoha’s development is not as fast as it seems. There’s a lot of work to do for Hashirama. He had to contact the Daimyo, divide the territory for each clan, and establish the civilian districts… The physical building got done faster than the tedious deskwork.

During this busy year, Masahiko often visited to check the construction progress. After all, flying was very convenient…

Konoha’s power got divided by four, with each side occupied by the Senju, Uchiha, Uzumaki, and the Hyuga.

Uzumaki could occupy a good place by relying on Masahiko’s status and their population, while the Hyuga relied on their excellent relationship with the Daimyo…

“Now to think about it, the Hyuga do a good maneuver back then, visionary bastard…” Masahiko sighed.

Coincidentally, the Shimura and the Sarutobi, who lived close to the Uzumaki clan, managed to get a place considering their relation with Masahiko, and their previous Mine War.

Until the end of the year, most of the Uzumaki who help the building of Konoha went back to the clan, with the news that Konoha will be formally established in the New Year’s Day.

Upon hearing the news, Masahiko flew high to the sky.

And by using all his strength, he shouted:
“The Warring States Period is over!”

His sound sent rippling through the cloud….
