Naruto: The Shinobi Genius Book 1 Chapter 42


Volume 1 Chapter 42

Kakashi, Asuma, and I have been given one room with three beds.

"Those old bastards are really stingy. Who do they think they are? I should have at least been given my own room."

"Kakashi and I can find somewhere else to sleep if you want."

"Nah it's okay, I don't mind sharing a room with the two of you. But it's not proper to let someone with my status share a room with his subordinates."

"Yeah those advisors seem like no good to me." said Asuma

"Are you thinking of accepting their offer?" asked Kakashi

"Are you kidding me. Who would be stupid enough to give two spies such a high position?"

"And that Daichi guy, why are you so keen on having him join us?" asked Asuma

"Because he has the same potential as Kakashi. If he and Kakashi trained seriously in the village they would be able to become stronger assets then the Sannin."

"You think too highly of me."

"If you'd stop being such a depressed emo you'll become much stronger than you could ever imagine."

"I'm sorry sir but I have my reasons for being the way I am. I would apricate it if you could stop making fun of me."

"Yeah, not happening."

"Naruto can't you be a little nicer, he has gone through a lot."

"It's not like he is the only one. He should be glad that I didn't beat him up already. After all, in these 13 years that I have lived, I have never once heard about him visiting me."

"Why should he visit you?"

"I'm sure that you know who my father is so you can connect the dots."

"How long have you known for?" asked Kakashi

"Since I was 5 years old."

"I'm so sorry for never having approached you, but I just couldn't face you. Everyone who I start caring about dies. I'm too weak to protect anyone."

I walked up to him and punched him in the gut. He hunched over and I hugged him.

"You're so pathetic. If you know that you're weak you just have to become stronger. What do you think my father and your teammates will think when they see that you have become such a pathetic emo."

He said nothing.

"They would be disappointed. Your friend, Obito entrusted his Sharingan to you. But instead of using it to fulfill his dreams, you are just wasting it by standing in front of a stone the whole day."

"You don't understand. This eye makes me remember the guilt I feel for not being able to save my best friend. As long as I have this eye I will never be able to move on."

'He is quite talkative today. Normally it would be impossible to get an ounce of emotion from this guy. Did I inherit the Talk No Jutsu from Naruto?'

"But who says that he is dead?"

I could feel him trembling. I let him go and looked straight into his eye.

"Obito Uchiha is 100% still alive."

"What! Don't lie to me. I've seen him getting crushed by the boulders myself."

"Have you checked his pulse."

"I didn't get the chance. But if he is alive why didn't he come back to the village?"

"Because he is the enemy now. He hates the world and he has is gathering enough power to destroy it."

"He would never do that! Obito isn't the kind of guy who would suddenly start hatting the world."

"Let me ask you something. How would you feel if you saw someone who you thought of as your best friend stab the girl you love through her heart."

"What that can't be! How do you know about that?"

"Let's just say that I have my sources, but you should know that you won't be able to talk him out of it. If you two meet on the battlefield he will kill you. So you have to become stronger if you want him to come back to his senses."

He looked conflicted before I could see a flame rising in his eye.

"Thank you for telling me. When we get back to the village I will train even harder than Guy."

"There is no need to go that far. You will kill yourself if you train harder than him."

"May I know what name he goes under?"

"Not happening till I think you're strong enough. If you two were to fight right now you would stand no chance."

He looked shocked

"I understand."

"Let go to bed, we will be leaving tomorrow at 1 pm."

"Yes sir." 2x

'I'm really getting good at this acting thing. Did he really think that I have his best interest in mind? The only reason I'm trying so hard to stop him from being emo is because his talent isn't something I can ignore. And if my plans go correctly I will be able to get a lot more from this.'

[1 AM]

I snuck out of the room and went to the roof. Arriving there I could already see Daichi.

"Your on time which is a good start."

"I'm sorry sir but I won't be able to join you."

"Oh, and why is that?"

He looked to be contemplating before he started to speak.

"My little sister is sick and all the best doctors are working for the Daimyo."

"Are they able to cure your sister?"

He looked down.

"No, they said that the only thing they are able to do is to keep her alive."

"Well, what if I told you that Tsunade Senju is in the village."

"Didn't she disappear?"

"She just went on a long vacation, but now she is back and if anyone can help your sister it's her."

"How much will it cost."

"As long as you join me it's free."

"Even if I would want to join you, I won't be able to leave. The Daimyo would never let me."

"Don't worry about it. You just have to tell him that you want to quit your job and I ensure you that he will say yes."

"How can you be so certain?"

"Magic."

He looked me in the eyes.

"Fine, I will trust you."

"When you're done talking with the Daimyo, take your sister and meet us at the east gate."

"Yes sir. I will take my leave now."

I nodded and he disappeared. In his place, someone else appeared.

"So what did you find out."

"Daichi can be trusted."

"And the advisors?"

"They are trying to manipulate you into becoming their puppet. They want to rule Konoha in the dark."

"You and my clone will assassinate the Daimyo."

"Sir we can't do that. If he dies right now everyone will know that it was you."

"Don't worry I have a plan. You just have to keep watch and make sure nobody disturbs me. I will kill him myself."

"I understand sir."

"You two can go now."

They disappeared.

'Soon this whole nation will be mine and there will be no one who can oppose me.'

I snuck back into my room and went to sleep.
