Danzo looked at Sakumo with an evil stare and said: “Well, if you want to go to the mission this much, you can always go undercover, I will take over your place until you go back.”
Sakumo knew Danzo’s intentions, but he couldn’t also trust him with an important mission like this one.
therefore, Sakumo prepared himself quickly for this mission, then left the camp.
In order to perform this mission successfully Sakumo needed to use another identity.
He chose a dozen of his best men, then he quickly left the area.
Sakumo and his team start moving so fast in order to caught up to the enemies.
After they reached the place there was a strong smell of blood, it seems the rain didn’t wash it all away.
Several Shinobis from his team start circling the area looking for the enemies until they found the battlefield, it was like hell on earth, everyone got shocked.
Sakumo came to the place, but the cruel scene in the field was too much on him, he had a shocked expression.
All the corpses on the ground belonged to the Rocks Shinobis.
They should be the ones who sneaked into their defenses, but all of them died!
Who killed them? who has such a power?
“Captain, all of them are from the Rocks Village, but the wounds they have are really weird… it looks like they got all smashed by a powerful Ninjutsu.”
“Do you have any explanation?”
“It looks like it wasn’t due to a Taijutsu Technique, but I have no idea what can do such a damage, it’s more like a monstrous act, humans shouldn’t be able to do such a damage.” the Anbu said that with confidence.
Sakumo got lost in deep thoughts.
At this time, one of the Shinobis found something.
“Captain, there’s a traces of a moving corpse over here, it seems to be ours!”
At that time, Sakumo followed the traces on the ground until he reached the corpse, suddenly he showed a trace of surprise.
He’s one of the Anbus, it’s really weird.
If one of the Anbu got ambushed outside of the Village, he will release a seal that will kill him immediately, then his body will vanish in silent.
The Anbus won’t give the enemies the chance to extract information from them since they know so much.
Maybe he didn’t have the chance to release the seal.
“What a weird situation… does anyone recognized him? his face got messed up”
An Anbu looked at the field with a shocked face then said: “We doesn’t have any troop that capable to destroy a whole army like this one!”
“Maybe it’s one of the frontline Captains, or maybe he’s one of the Roots.”
Listening to several of his subordinates analyses, Sakumo’s expression changed a little bit, finally, he shook his head and said: “Well since they are dead, we don’t have any business here, we should head back to the camp, he should be one of us, maybe we will know the moment we head back.”
“Maybe it’s one of Orochimaru’s Ninjutsu? however, these wounds really remind me of someone.”
Sakumo looked at the Anbu, then his start moving back to the camp.
He knew what the Anbu meant by his this, he also thought of Naito, but he already tested Naito’s power, he doesn’t have such a power.
This is so far away from his level.
Most of them were certain that it was Orochimaru.
Orochimaru was known as one of the most powerful Shinobis in Konoha, but secretly he was also one of the side Anbus captains!
The Village Hidden by Rain, Konoha’s Camp.
After Sakumo left the place, Danzo was temporary in charge of everything, he’s the second under Sarutobi, his status is definitely higher than Hatake Sakumo.
At this time, a masked Root Ninja appeared in front of Danzo, and said: “Danzo-Sama, a group of Anbus came back from a mission.”
Danzo nodded at him, almost all of the Anbu were taken by Sakumo, so it was natural that his men were handling everything instead.
Shortly, Naito, Yamanaka, and Asano came in.
They returned to the camp since their Captain got killed, Naito didn’t know how to hand over the rest of the tasks, so he decided to directly see Sakumo.
However, what he didn’t expect is that Danzo was the one sitting in the Commander Room instead of Sakumo.
Sakumo’s team and Naito took different roots so they didn’t encounter each other.
“Why there’s only three of you? Who’s your Captain?”
Danzo didn’t recognize Naito due to the mask and the cloak.
“Our Captain Horitsu got killed in the duty.”
Asano took a deep breath before he answers Danzo’s question.
Danzo’s Root was a Siplentery force and didn’t have anything to do with the Anbu, but he still had a basic understanding of all the Anbus members.
“Your Captain got killed it should have been a very critical situation, it’s really amazing that three of you could get out of there alive, very good.”
Danzo nodded, then he looked at Naito.
He didn’t recognize him at first, but the moment he knew that they were the Eight Team, he knew it was Naito, Although he was wearing a mask.
After a few moments, Danzo stood up then he looked at them and said: “You three, come with me.”
Asano and Yamanaka were about to follow the order, suddenly Naito faced him and said: “Sorry, but you have no right to order us.”
Danzo’s eyes instantly changed its colors, then he stared at Naito: “Is that so?!”
“Yes, we’re Anbus who works directly under the lead of the Hokage, apart from the Captain and Sarutobi-Sama, we don’t follow anyone’s orders.”
Naito responded calmly to Danzo.
Is this a joke, Danzo wants to take them three with him, gods know what he’s gonna pull out!
Following Danzo is a nonsense!
Danzo looked at him with a cold stare then said: “If the Anbu Captain isn’t here, and the Hokage is not here, the leadership goes temporarily to me, are you willing to disobey?”
In a flash, Danzo starts to put pressure on him.
However, Naito wasn’t afraid.
“I need to see a authenticate document from the Hokage that accord what you said.”
Naito looked at Danzo with a calm expression.
At this time, Asano and Yamanaka couldn’t pick a side, Naito was clearly in charge of them, but, obviously, Naito and Danzo have some kind of conflict.
Danzo narrowed his eyes while he stared at Naito.
At first, Sarutobi was the one who’s protecting this kid, but now, Naito dares to face him!
That little devil thinks since he joined the Anbu he can go against him?
Even if his talent was unique, he’s just a little kid who didn’t grow up yet.
Danzo yelled at Naito with a stare on his face.
Suddenly several masked Shinobis from the Root appeared in the room, Naito got surrounded.
