The best way to get to know each other is to learn from each other–– The Ancestor of the Uzumaki.
The small woods suffered again from the several consecutive battles and became unsuitable.
However, these battles didn’t end with winners or losers. Masahiko was stopping them at a critical time every round, so that they could know just their mistakes and learn each time. He didn’t need to crush their motives and spirit to let improve them…
“Do you still want to learn from each other?
The kids looked at each other and couldn’t help but cast their gazes on the four who hadn’t fought yet; Kimimaro, Haku, Karin… and Sakura.
“These three are elite ninjas from the Uzumaki.” Masahiko corrected them and pointed, “Do you mean Sakura?”
Sakura’s face was bittern; who she can beat? No one here is near her level… Maybe Naruto?
At this moment, Haku said softly, “Naruto, I’ve heard that you’re progressing really fast?”
Naruto was startled, “Yeah!”
Karin curled her lips, “He’s still the same weak kid, Haku, you don’t want to fight him, do you?”
Haku smiled sweetly, “Naruto, we have never tried it before.”
“Fighting with sister Haku?” Naruto murmured softly, and quickly said, “Bring it on!”
Masahiko scratched his head, feeling a little a loss, but didn’t stop them; Haku wouldn’t hurt Naruto…
“Magical Mirror: Ice Crystal!”
Masahiko’s mouth twitched; he wouldn’t hurt Naruto, right?
Their vision was blocked by the ice mirrors; therefore no one could see what is happening inside. They could only listen, but…
“Ah Sister Haku! It’s so cold! It’s pointy! Aaah…” Naruto’s voice came out.
Masahiko’s face suddenly changed colors, but fortunately, the kids around were very pure and didn’t overthink it…
Only Karin’s face reddened and said, “What is this guy doing?”
After a while, the mice mirrors disappeared, and Haku flashed back with a sweet smile on his face, then bowed down to Masahiko apologetically.
Masahiko waved his hand, “It doesn’t matter.”
When he looked forward, he saw Naruto lying on the ground.
Sakura wanted to use medical Ninjutsu on him, but when she approached him, she frowned slightly; something seems to be different about Naruto.
“Puff! Naruto, your eyebrows…”
Naruto raised his hand and touched his face, feeling it; his eyebrows… were gone!
“Sister Haku, why…?!”
Naruto didn’t know what he did wrong, he simply couldn’t connect this to what happened two months ago…
“Don’t be discouraged, Naruto, your eyebrows will grow longer if you shave it off.” Masahiko comforted, “For now why don’t you wear your forehead guard a little bit lower to cover up your ugly face?”
Naruto felt a bit irritated, but he had no choice but to lower his forehead protector a bit down.
“So anyone else wants to learn or teach others?”
Time flies. On the second day, Masahiko and Kimimaro sat down for breakfast at Ichiraku Ramen.
“Elder, why did you call us this time?” Karin said softly.
Masahiko nodded, “Kimimaro is going to do a small task. You and Haku are incidental.”
“God, are you going to give me a mission?” Kimimaro looked up.
“No hurry. I’ll tell you about it after the Chunin Exam.”
Masahiko thought about taking Naruto and Sasuke to the Valley of the End to fight after the Chunin Exam and see if he could get more witness points. And if possible, let Kimimaro and Gaara also fight….
The Uzumaki newly promoted S-Rank ninja Kimimaro is estimated to be able to kill Gaara in seconds. It just so happens that this will certainly be considered as a complete change…
Masahiko pondered for a moment, raised his eyebrows, and said, “Did you notice Uchiha Hoshino from my class yesterday, Haku?”
Haku startled, “That girl?”
Masahiko smiled, “Not bad, so even though you’re like this you can see the difference at a glance?”
Haku smiled sweetly without replying.
Karin was a little surprised, “Is that a girl? How come? He looked really…”
“How could you be a girl, while she can’t? She’s much cuter than you!”
Karin was very calm. After so many years, she has long been immune to Masahiko’s “personal attacks.”
“Kimimaro-Kun, let’s go shopping in Konoha after dinner, it’s been a long time!”
Kimimaro looked up at Masahiko.
Masahiko looked at Karin’s begging eyes and shook his head with a smile, “You go. Haku has to follow me for a while and become an assistant teacher.
Karin rejoiced: “Alright!”
As time passed, May came to an end. Three days later, the Chunin exam will start.
Sunagakure, Kusagakure, Takigakure… and Otogakure’s ninjas have arrived one after another.
“Otogakure actually participated even though I didn’t invite Orochimaru. With Konoha’s lineup, he shouldn’t dare to come… is this just a simple test?” Masahiko was in disbelief.
However, his focus soon shifted to another matter. There was something called the “Ninja Card” circulating on Konoha Street. The source was a small stall in the bustling area, and the stall owner was Kabuto!
“He’s selling them so he can donate the money to Konoha Orphanage…” Masahiko said with interest.
After Kushina snatched 300 million Ryo from Masahikot and donated them to Konoha Orphanage, they opened many branches throughout the Land of Fire.
No matter how much money they used up, it seems that there are still few to generate income… it seems to be selling well.
“Kabuto, where did you get these?” Masahiko said with a smile.
“Ah Elder! Do you want to donate money again?” When Kabuto saw Masahiko he got quite enthusiastic…
Masahiko’s face darkened, “The orphanage now is much richer than me, why don’t you donate some to me?”
Kabuto fixed his glasses, “That’s funny. Many children went out of the orphanage, and some of them even entered the Ninja Academy and became classmates of the Genin who are taking the exam, so this information could be obtained with ease. The ones in the outer village are relatively primitive. Yes, you, Great Elder… can help me add more information, right?”
Masahiko raised his eyebrows, but didn’t object, then said, “Is there any information about me?”
Kabuto was startled, “I wouldn’t dare to share information about you, I only sell the ones who are participating in the Exam… but I have your card here.”
Kabuto took a card out of his pocket then handed it to Masahiko.
Masahiko looked at it and there were only a few lines of words: Uzumaki Masahiko, Great Elder of the Land of Whirlpools, age 100+, Strength: Unknown, the strongest man in the world…
Masahiko was silent for a moment; he should be happy about this, but he feels a bit awkward.
“Doesn’t this mean that my death will be the beginning of a new era?”
After pondering for a moment, Masahiko handed the card back, “Sell it, thanks to you, I remembered that I have some business to do!”
After half an hour.
A booth was set up on the opposite side of Kabuto: Chunin Exam Score Bet365!
Champion: Tenten 1.1 Toneri loses 1.2, Gaara loses 1.3…
Runner up: …..
Masahiko looked at the dumbfounded Kabuto, then at the curious pedestrians around him, and shouted with a smile on his face, “Gather here, the ancestor is in the house, and the bet is safe!”
Masahiko was muttering in his heart, “Orochimaru, you better make that mistake and come here, because I, the dealer, will always win…”
