LLH Chapter 439 A One-Man Show

“The destiny’s guidance, the system is guiding him?”

Masahiko pondered deeply. From what he just heard from Orochimaru, it seems that the latter has gained a weakened version of the system transmitted through Masahiko’s blood; what is this? Do you think you’re AIDS…?

“That’s not right,” Masahiko suddenly remembered something, and looked up to confirm with Orochimaru, “When Obito became the Hokage, didn’t you receive any guidance from the power of destiny?”

“That’s right… it seems that you know very well the origin of the power of destiny in your blood.” Orochimaru said calmly.

“I don’t know!” Masahiko shook his head, if Orochimaru really gained a simplified version of the system, it makes no sense that it didn’t ‘guide’ him in that event.

This was the first time that Masahiko felt his IQ wasn’t enough to solve a problem after he level up his Yin attribute to the maximum level…

“Oh, I can’t ask Shikaku to help analyze this matter, man, it seems that my blood is poisonous.” Masahiko sighed, then asked Orochimaru again, “Apart from this guidance, is there anything else? For example… your strength?”

“After following the guidance of destiny, my strength has indeed improved, but it’s very small. If I hadn’t reached the limit before, I wouldn’t have noticed it at all. In other words, it helped me break the limit of my body, allowing me to further improve my strength.”

Masahiko frowned, is it related to ‘witnessing?’

“Also,” Orochimaru added, “Up to this moment, your blood guided me to take Kimimaro as my subordinate, which cause me a lot of trouble.”

Masahiko’s brows frowned slightly; doesn’t that mean that he can’t ‘change?’

With his eyes locked on Orochimaru, Masahiko pondered, then said, “Aren’t you fooling me?”

“How dare I deceive you?”

Masahiko took a deep breath, feeling quite troubled, and for a while, he didn’t know to get rid of Orochimaru. Should he kill him? After obtaining the spiritual space, Masahiko can obliterate the soul, and Orochimaru is unlikely to escape from him… but he can’t be sure.

“Is that killing intent?” Orochimaru licked his lips without the least bit of nervousness, “It seems that you do have some great secrets that you’re hiding.”

Masahiko smiled and didn’t deny it. Since his strength has reached a certain level, he hasn’t deliberately tried to conceal his ‘special abilities’ at all. Many people guessed that he has a secret…

But Orochimaru was different.

This scientist dared to make the research, and his research ability should be at the full level. More importantly, if the news of the possibility of obtaining secret abilities from his blood spread out, wouldn’t he become the Uzumaki Muzan Kibutsuji?

I’m afraid not ninjas wouldn’t like to sleep that much.

Not afraid of thieves stealing, but afraid of thieves thinking. Then there’s really no peace…

“Actually, you don’t have to worry about me.” Orochimaru said slowly, “I’ll have no ill towards you, and what you should worry about is the leader of the Dark Akatsuki!”

Masahiko was stunned for a moment.

“Yes, the old man Gamamaru said that the bastard was a poor man who comes up from the Infinite Tsukuyomi for some reason. It was originally White Zetsu. As for the reason of his awakening…” Masahiko stroked his belly, “Black Zetsu, that bastard, took my blood!”

“No wonder that guy attacked Konoha as Pain, and tried to kill Nawaki many times, and killed… Orochimaru’s parents!” Thinking of this, Masahiko suddenly raised his head.

Orochimaru showed a smile, “Is that true? Father and mother are just ordinary Chunin, I have always wondered why would they be targets of the Akatsuki, it turned out to be… destiny!”

Masahiko paused, closed his eyes slightly, feeling a little uncomfortable.

“In addition to the other me who lived for thousands of years, I always feel that everything happened because of me. Isn’t this more like a one-man show?”

After a long silence, the killing intent in Masahiko’s heart slowly dissipated, then he sighed and said, “I owe you a favor for the information about Kimimaro before. I will not pursue this incident. It’s worth that favor. Do you have any objections?”

Orochimaru nodded, “No.”

Masahiko waved his hand, “That’s alright, go back to wash and sleep, don’t let me find out that you’ve deceived me, otherwise… well, I don’t threaten people usually, so you get the idea.”

Orochimaru nodded, and said calmly, ”Elder, I understand. What about the guidance of killing Sarutobi-Sensei?”

Masahiko frowned slightly, “Are you serious? You can’t mess with Konoha now! And are you just going to kill Hiruzen because of these inexplicable instructions?”

Orochimaru shook his head, “No, I just want to confirm whether fate will guide me to attack again after I fail to kill Sarutobi-Sense. Kimimaro-Kun has really caused me trouble.”

“I also want to confirm one of my guesses, or more like a hunch, whether your blood guided me to do five things only because it was five milliliters.”

Masahiko was stunned, “You think so?”

Orochimaru nodded to confirm.

Masahiko pondered for a moment, so there’s a limit on the number of instructions… that’s better!

Masahiko then glanced at the Fourth Kazekage’s corpse, and he suddenly remembered another troublesome thing…

If Orochimaru doesn’t disguise as the Fourth Kazekage and go to Konoha, then the news of his death will spread out, and Sungakure’s team might withdraw. In that way, the odds of the top eight candidates might change, and it’s very likely that they will lose money…

More importantly, there are some things that Masahiko also wants to confirm, and he’s still feeling uneasy to just let Orochimaru go like this… Of course, it’s better to take some witness points on the way.

“You can go to Konoha, but you can only attack Hiruzen, not Konoha. I won’t interfere, I will hide and stay out of your way. But if you decide to add any extra action, I will shoot mercilessly, and you will absolutely die there! So… what do you think?”

Orochimaru licked his lips and said without hesitation, “Yes. I’m really not trying to deceive you, you can rest assured.”

It’s no wonder that Masahiko cannot rest assured. The most difficult thing to interpret in the Naruto World is Orochimaru’s actions. If it weren’t for the fact that he was strong enough, and also had an idea about what Orochimaru ultimately wants to achieve, he would have trembled when facing him. Talking to this man is like walking on thin ice!

Masahiko now has the absolute advantage in strength, and no one can turn the sky over.

“This invincible ancestor can crush everything!”

After pondering for a moment, Masahiko felt very easy around Orochimaru…

“Elder, if there’s nothing more to this, I would like to go and prepare first,” Orochimaru said.

Masahiko nodded, then disappeared.

Orochimaru paused for a moment, then walked towards the corpses of the Kazekage and his guards.


Ten minutes later, Konoha.

Masahiko suddenly appeared beside Jiraiya. In the distance, Naruto was riding up and down Gamabunta, and the latter seemed to be trying to show him who’s the boss here.

Seeing how Masahiko finally came back, Jiraiya immediately said eagerly, “Elder, how is Orochimaru now? Why did he defect?”

“He’s fine. The reason for his defection… It seems to be because of me?” Masahiko scratched his head.

“Because of you?” Jiraiya was stunned.

Masahiko nodded, then suddenly sighed, “Who directed this scene? Why did you give me this lonely role, why do I always ends up talking to myself…”

Jiraiya: “???”

Why are you singing? Is this what they call rap?
