Naruto: The Shinobi Genius Book 1 Chapter 57


Volume 1 Chapter 57

[Next day]

I'm back in the training place. In these 3 years, I have injected every blood sample that I modified into myself. Shikamaru's is one of them.

I got enveloped in a black shadow. This would be perfect for hiding in the night, but that isn't its best feature.

A wave of shadow appeared and filled the floor of the training place. I have this place completely lit up but now the floor is pitch black. If I were to use the Shadow Possession Jutsu right now and there were people here, they wouldn't stand a chance.

The Hyuga and Uchiha blood samples didn't give me any dojutsu. I guess I should have expected that. But it wasn't for nothing. I have acquired the same visual prowesses as them. I can copy a jutsu just by seeing it once and I can also see the chakra in somebody's body.

I won't be able to use Jutsu's like Amaterasu or Susanoo. But just having the same visual prowesses as them is enough. And nobody can see that I have these prowesses. My eyes look exactly the same.

There is also something else I'm really excited about.

A clone that is made of wood came out of my body. This clone is much sturdier than a shadow clone. Normally a shadow clone would disappear after one hit if I didn't use a reinforced one, but this wood clone can easily take multiple hits.

I also got the Yamanaka blood sample. My mind techniques reached another level. But I don't use any of these powers unless it's necessary. I won't reveal all my hands in case the Otsutsuki will do some research.

But even if they know I don't think they will be able to do anything about it. From what I've seen, Urashiki the one with the fishing rod is the most dangerous. He has the ability to travel back in time. Even if it's only 5 seconds, it can still make all the difference.

[1 month later]

[Kakashi P.O.V.]

I'm walking in a cave. The Hokage said that Obito is here alone and since I've mastered the Mangeky Sharingan I can fight him alone.

After walking for a while I arrived in an open area. On the other side of the open area, I could see Obito sitting on something that looks like a throne.

"Why did you come here?"

"I came here to bring you back to your senses."

"Hahahaha."

"What is so funny?"

"You're too late for that. I've already lost my mind."

"What do you mean?"

"All the plans that I made, everything that I worked for, all the sacrifices I made. In the end, it meant nothing."

He stood up and started walking towards me.

"I have been trying to change this forsaken world for a long time. Who knew that it was manipulated in thinking that I was changing it, but in fact, I was making everything worse. Madara Uchiha, Black Zetsu, Kaguya tsutsuki, I was being manipulated by all of them."

He stood in front of me. He took off his mask and I could see tears coming out of his eye.

"Kakashi, please help me! I don't know what to do anymore."

"What happened to you?"

[Flashback 2 weeks ago]

[Obito P.O.V]

I'm sitting in my base thinking of a plan to get Nagato and all the Tailed Beasts back when I felt an overwhelming amount of chakra pres on me. I looked at the entrance and I could see someone walking in.

"What are you doing here, Naruto?"

The chakra pressure became even heavier.

He kept walking until he was right in front of me. When I looked straight into his eyes I couldn't move an inch.

'Those eyes aren't something a normal human should possess.'

They are so cold and indifferent. It looks like he doesn't care about anything. I'm sure that he wouldn't hesitate to kill me.

"What do you want, you monster!"

Suddenly all the Chakra pressure disappeared and his eyes turned into that of a lively person.

"Hahahaha, you should have seen yourself. You were about to piss yourself. Hahahahahaha!"

"You bastard! Just tell me what you want already."

He turned serious and grabbed my head before I could react. I suddenly appeared in a pitch-black place. Something grabbed my leg.

"Why, Why did you kill me?"

'What is that? It looks human, but its face is completely distorted."

I tried to kick it away when something else grabbed my leg.

"This is all your fault!"

I got grabbed by something else again.

"Please don't hurt my son!"

I could see even more of those beings approaching me.

"You bastard! What is this place!?"

Suddenly he appeared in front of me.

"This place shows all the sins you have committed or will commit if you keep walking the same path. Everyone here is an innocent person that you have killed or will kill in the future."

"How is that even possible?"

"Nothing is impossible. Let me show you something else."

I appeared somewhere else.

'Isn't this the base where Madara took me.'

I looked around and cooled see Madara talking with Black Zetsu. I walked closer to hear what they were saying.

"So is that Uchiha boy any good, Madara."

"He will be a fine vessel."

'What does he mean by vessel?'

"You better make sure that he won't betray."

"Hahaha, after I made his best friend kill his little girlfriend he was suddenly really eager to join me. Fools like him would do anything for someone who gives them the opportunity to vent their anger."

I fell on my knees.

'This can't be.'

"I can't wait to see what his face will be like when he revives you and you stab him in the back."

"He should be honored that he will die for me."

"Yeah right. I will go now. I need to take care of something."

He disappeared into the ground. I suddenly appeared in the forest above the base. I could see Black Zetsu coming out of the ground.

"That fool. After he becomes the Ten-Tails Jinchuuriki, Kaguya-sama will take over his body and destroy this world."

'Are you kidding me!? This can't be true!"

I appeared back in the pitch-black place and those beings started to grab me again.

"What was that?"

"That was the truth. You've been a disposable pawn from the beginning."

"That can't be true! That was all fake!"

"Tell me Obito. Do you know about the Forbidden Individual Curse Tag?"

"What about it?"

"Did you know that Madara placed that tag on Rin. He kidnapped her and had the Three-Tails sealed inside of her. He wanted to use that seal to unleash the Tailed Beast inside of Konoha."

"You're lying!"

"He wanted to have her die for another village so that you would become miserable and be disappointed in this world."

'Have I really been manipulated this whole time?'

"Now that you know the truth, have fun in this place."

He disappeared.

"Come back! Get me out of here!"

I tried to use my chakra to push these guys off of me, but it was no use. I can't use any chakra here. I kept hearing the screams and pleadings of all of them.

"Get off of me you bastards!"

Even more started to appear.

'Am I going to stay here forever?'

[1 week later]

'How long have I been in this hell?'

I'm in the middle of an ocean of these beings. They keep saying what I did to them. I can't believe that this is what would have happened to them if my plans worked.

'I'm a horrible person.'

Suddenly I blinding light appeared. I closed my eyes.

After opening my eyes again I found myself back in my base and Naruto is gone.

[Flashback end]

[Kakashi P.O.V.]

"Naruto is a scary guy. He was able to turn you back into the Obito that everyone knows and loves with a single Jutsu."

"Like anyone will ever love me after what I did."

"Naruto doesn't think that. Why else would he go through the trouble of getting you back to your senses? And you are still my first best friend."

"How can you say that!? I was the reason Rin died."

"I was the one who killed her."

"But it wouldn't have happened if I just died that day."

"We are both to blame then."

"I guess so."

"After Rin died I started doing a lot of missions to get my head away from the guilt. But even after doing so many missions, I couldn't forget both of you. My guilt only became bigger. Even now I'm still consumed by guilt. But you were the opposite. You were filled with hate and despair."

"Yeah, you're right. We did take her dead in two different ways."

"Obito, come back to Konoha."

"Why would I go back?"

"If you come back, you will be able to help all those grandma's again."

We looked at each other.

"Hahahaha!" x2

"You bastard, I didn't know you could even make a joke."

"Well, I guess I did change in these last 3 years. So how about it, are you coming back."

"Do you think I can get rid of my sins by coming back?"

"I guess you have to find out for yourself."

"Do you think I will even be allowed back into the village."

"How about you ask the Hokage himself."

I grabbed his shoulder. The Hokage managed to improve the message seal. We can now communicate just by talking.

"What is it Kakashi?"

"Hello."

"Oh, it's crazy emo guy."

Obito had a big frown on his face.

"My name is Obito Uchiha."

"What do you want crazy emo guy? Make it quick."

He tightened his fists.

"I wanted to ask if I can please come back to the village."

"No."

"Huh?" x2
