Naruto: The Shinobi Genius Book 1 Chapter 47


Volume 1 Chapter 47

[2 months later]

I introduced F to the village a week ago and everyone was happy to have her. No one fears the Tailed Beasts anymore since I'm around. But not everyone is happy with F being here.

Take the guy who is sitting opposite of me as an example. He is Shibuki, Takigakure's village head. For some reason, he is really angry with me for taking F.

"Give F back!"

"She isn't someone I can just give away. She is her own person so she can choose where she wants to go. I don't exactly know how you treated her in that village of yours, but I know that she was living a miserable life."

"You don't know anything!"

"I know that everyone wants her dead. Do you even know how lonely she was? She was so lonely that she was almost crying when I asked her if she wanted to become my friend."

"I always protected and took care of her."

"Damn, how could someone like you become a leader. Do you really think that that is enough to make her live a happy life? I take it that your people trust you so you could have been able to convince them that F isn't someone to be afraid of."

"I have tried a lot of times, but they don't want to listen."

"If you aren't even able to convince your own people, that means that you are a failure as a leader."

One of his guards took out his weapon.

"How dare you talk to the village head like that. Have more respe-"

Haku appeared behind him with a kunai on his neck.

"You bastard!" said one of his other guards

His remaining 3 guards got ready to fight.

"Stop what are you guys doing! Put down your weapons!"

They were really pissed but still put their weapons down. I put my legs on my desk and told Haku to let him go.

"You can't even keep your subordinates under control, how pathetic."

"Let's stop talking about things that don't matter and let me see F."

"Not happening."

"Why not?"

"She is my subordinate now so if I don't want you to meet her, it won't happen."

"You can't do that!"

"Yes, I can and if you keep talking to me like this I will throw you out of this village."

"Why won't you let me see her?"

"I didn't know that I needed a reason."

"I will go find her myself!"

"Are you sure you want to test my patience?"

"Don't think I'm afraid of you!"

"Shibuki, village leader of Takigakure. You are from today onward forbidden to set foot in this village ever again. So I would appreciate it if you could walk to the gate directly and exit the village."

"And what if I won't?"

"Shikaku, how long will it take to ready an army that is able to attack Takigakure?"

"Not longer than one week, sir."

"Good, I want you to prepare for war if he doesn't leave this village this instant."

"Are you really going to wage war for one person?" asked Shibuki

"Yes."

"We will be waiting for you then. Takigakure has never been successfully invaded and that fact will never change."

"Then I Naruto Uzumaki, 5th Hokage of Konohagakure officially declare war on Takigakure."

"I Shibuki, Village leader of Takigakure officially accepts this declaration of war!"

"In exactly one week we will attack your village. I hope you'll be prepared."

"Don't worry, we will be waiting with our entire force."

He and his guards left.

"How could this have happened?"

"What is it Shikaku?"

"How could you declare war over one person. And you had to choose Takigakure of all villages. There is a reason that no one has been able to successfully invade them. We know nothing about their village layout."

I threw him a scroll. He opened it and he got a small smile.

"I should have known you would be 10 steps ahead of everyone."

I gave him a scroll with the complete layout of the village.

"Go and notify the village about the war. I'll also let you make the plan for the attack."

"Yes sir!"

He left the office. I threw another scroll with the village layout on it to Haku.

"Give this to Itachi and tell him to infiltrate the village."

"Yes, master."

He also left the office.

I didn't really plan for this war, but he started to piss me off. And It's not like I will actually have my Shinobi attack. That will just be the stupid thing to do.

[1 hour later]

*SMACK*

The door got smacked open.

'Oh shit, here we go again.'

F entered my office with tears in her eyes.

"Is it true? Did you really declare war on Takigakure?"

"Yes."

"How could you! You promised me that you would protect Takigakure. I trusted you!"

"I told you that I would protect it from the Akatsuki and do you even know why I declared war on them?"

She shook her head.

"It's because that idiot Shibuki wanted the Seven Tails back."

"What do you mean?"

"The moment he entered my office he said: Where is the Seven-Tails! Give it back immediately!."

"That can't be. He would never say something like that!"

"Why would I lie to you?"

"You must be after my Tailed Beasts power."

"Hahaha, you are really funny sometimes. If I wanted the Seven-Tails I would have simply taken it out of you. But I just wanted to help you since we are the same. If I didn't care about you I wouldn't have started a war to protect you."

She fell on her knees and started crying. I went down and hugged her.

"Don't worry I promise you that I will not hurt any innocent people and I will let you talk to Shibuki if you really don't believe."

She hugged me back.

"I'm so sorry for causing you all this trouble. It will be better if I go back."

"You silly girl. I see you as my little sister. And as a big brother, it is my job to protect you."

She stopped hugging me and I could see a huge smile on her face. She wiped away her tears.

"Meeting you was the best thing to have ever happened to me. I'm an orphan so I have never known what it feels like to have a family."

"I'm also an orphan so I guess we will find out what it feels like to have a family together."

"Thank you, big brother."
