Looking at Naito standing there, the Fourth Mizukage smiled, but the sense of tension in his eyes couldn’t be concealed.
He didn’t know when Naito has come to the Mist Village, nor the reason behind his visit. He knew only one thing, he must not offend Naito in any way!
That scene from three years ago in the Five Kages Meeting was still vivid in his eyes.
Although the Fourth Mizukage was the strongest between all of the previous generations and has confidence in his strength, in the face of the Kages, even if he thinks he can win, it would be tough to kill one of them.
However, these same Kages seemed like kids in front in front of Naito. Almost like a toy, being played on the palm of the hand!
Naito’s strength, even for him, is as unreachable as the gates of heaven.
“It seems that the Kaguya Clan has launched a rebellion… But this kid belongs to me from now on, and you have no choice but to accept.” Naito looked at the Fourth Mizukage and said lightly.
Upon saying that, Naito glanced at Kimimaru next to him, while Haku looked at him and greeted him kindly.
Kimimaru looked confused and lost, to the point that he subconsciously responded to Haku, who greeted him. Then he looked at Naito with a trace of awe, which was evident in his eyelids.
At this time, the Mizukage noticed Kimimaru on the side, then frowned slightly, but without any hesitation, he nodded immediately.
“Of course, no problem.”
“I didn’t expect that you would be interested in this child too. In this case, I will just give up on the idea.”
Orochimaru suddenly came over from the rear.
Although the original purpose of this trip was to get Kimimaru, it seems now that Naito also wants him. He naturally wouldn’t dare to compete with Naito.
The Mizukage saw Orochimaru, then his eyes became very old. For the past three years, Orochimaru kept roaming in the Land of Water, and he was aware of this. Although Orochimaru was a rogue ninja, his situation was completely different. He could efficiently deal with him because he knew why he was in the Land of Water.
If Naito wasn’t here, he would have dealt with him at once.
However, the Mizukage didn’t know what kind of relationship these two shared, and naturally, he didn’t dare to act recklessly.
“Don’t show that kind of look, rest assured, I don’t wish for the Mist Village no harm, and this rebellion has nothing to do with me.”
Orochimaru spread his hand in front of the Mizukage, showing a slightly evil expression.
The Fourth Mizukage hummed coldly, ignoring Orochimaru, but kept looking at Naito.
However, Naito didn’t bother to care about the Mizukage but looked at Kimimaru and Haku on the side. At this time, the two kids had already started talking, and they looked quite fit for each other.
Kimimaru could teach Haku how to be tough, and the latter could teach him how to be soft too.
“If you don’t have anyone, just go with us, Master Naito wouldn’t mind.”
Haku smiled kindly at Kimimaru.
Kimimaru looked at Haku with confusion, then suddenly asked: “Why are you following him?”
“Because Naito-Sama needs me, this is the purpose of my life.”
Listening to Haku’s words, Kimimaru showed a strange expression and couldn’t help but remember his past.
He was disgusted and feared by his own people, he existed to be a killing machine. He was kept in a prison cage, wondering what to do, wondering why he’s still alive.
He hated that feeling, he also wanted to find a meaning for his life; a purpose.
“Every life is meaningful, everyone has a purpose, but you’re the only one who could find it, you can live for yourself, for something, or for someone…”
Naito looked at Kimimaru, then suddenly said.
His words made both Kimimaru and Haku’s eyes open wide brightly.
Only the Mizukage and Orochimaru weren’t moved by Naito’s words.
Kimimaru then looked at Haku, then Naito with awe, and finally nodded firmly.
Upon seeing this, Orochimaru shook his head, then turned away.
The Fourth Mizukage continued to observe Naito cautiously.
Kimimaru was also looking at the Mizukage with vigilance. He feared both of them. His heart was trembling with horror, but besides that awe, he felt from Naito, a new feeling of admiration in his heart has appeared.
“I will have to pass this time, but I will surely come to visit again.”
Naito looked at the Fourth Mizukage and said casually. He then took Haku and Kimimaru and turned to leave. Naito already knew where the Akatsuki base was, and naturally there was no need to continue. The Kaguya rebellion against the Mist Village had nothing to do with Naito.
The Fourth Mizukage smiled, looking at Naito’s back, then said: “You will always be welcomed.”
Of course, he didn’t mean that. Up until this moment, his stomach was turning upside down, he didn’t know the reason behind this sudden visit, the fact that he found out that such a dangerous man was wandering around his village has made him tremble with fear inside, now he could finally feel relaxed!
Looking at Naito and the others leaving, Mei turned to the Mizukage waiting for her further orders.
“Go back and get rid of the Kaguya Clan.”
The expression on the Mizukage’s face gradually became cold.
Mei hesitated for a moment, then said: “But, that kid…”
“It doesn’t matter.” The Fourth Mizukage took a deep breath, and with endless fear in his eyes, he said: “Since he was taken away by Naito, he’s distinctly different from those dumb Kaguya’s clansmen.”
“Remember this, if you ever reencounter him in the future, you shouldn’t treat him as an enemy. Don’t you dare to provoke him, if you must, don’t even look him in the eyes, do you understand?!”
Mei nodded firmly, but she found it hard to calm down herself for a long time.
With just a few words, she finally understood why the Mizukage didn’t dare to continue hunting Kimimaru. Because he was under the wings of the God of Shinobi, the strongest man alive, whom his word is above all other people!
