Naruto: The Shinobi Genius Book 1 Chapter 61


Volume 1 Chapter 61

"Please don't kill me! I can give you whatever you want, just please don't kill me!"

"Instead of begging for mercy, you should start cursing me."

"Huh!?"

I placed my finger on his forehead. After taking back my finger I could see a hole going through his head. I used lightning transformation to shoot lightning from my fingertip.

I summoned a shadow clone to take care of everything here and I teleported to Konoha. I arrived at my training place.

The one I just killed is the Daimyo of the Land of Earth. I did the same to the rest and had my clones impersonate them. Now I am the ruler of all 5 nations. I only need to take care of the hidden villages now.

I went to my office and sat down. Now that I have the support of all the "Daimyo" Konoha has become richer than ever. Our population and army are also steadily growing.

*KNOCK*

*KNOCK*

"Come in."

"Sir! We got an emergency signal from Shino Aburame!"

'Didn't he go to investigate some bandit camp? Even if they found him, he should be able to take care of it. Who should I send?'

"Where is he?"

"He is at the west border of the Land of Fire."

'There is no one fast enough to get there in time besides me.'

"You can leave now."

He bowed and left the office.

I disappeared and appeared outside the village.

I started flying west. I already locked onto his chakra signal.

[Shino P.O.V.]

'Tsk, this mission couldn't have gone any worse.'

When I arrived here everyone was already dead except for one person who is eating at the campfire. I knew that I couldn't beat him so I wanted to head back and report, but he managed to find me. I was able to release an emergency signal before he got me.

Now I'm bound to a tree.

"Who are you brat?" Did you come here for my bounty?"

"I don't know who you are. I came for the bandits."

He looked at my headband.

"Oh I see, so you were here for a mission."

He took out a kunai.

"Well, that is just so unfortunate for you. Because I can't let you go now."

'He doesn't look like the guy I can negotiate with. I guess I have to go for an all-out attack and try to escape.'

I sent all my bugs towards him.

I managed to escape from the ropes and I started running away.

"Come back you brat!"

He appeared behind me. He tried to slice me with his kunai.

'So fast!'

I turned around and just managed to block with my own kunai. We both jumped back and a cut appeared on my cheek.

'If this goes on any longer I will get killed.'

My insects tried to cover his entire body.

"Get those disgusting bugs away from me!"

He burned my insects to ashes.

"Just stay still and I'll give you a quick death."

He came at me with a kunai. But I didn't back down and came at him with my own. I parried his attack.

"I've decided. I'll kill you really slowly."

He started attacking me really fast, but I managed to dodge or parry most of them. I still got cuts over my whole body.

'I can't stay defensive or I'll get killed.'

I started to attack him and I used what insects were left to absorb his chakra. He got distracted by my insects and I managed to stab him in his left arm.

"Argh, you bastard!"

He held his kunai in front of him and it suddenly got surrounded by blue chakra.

'Wind chakra flow!'

"You know what happens when I get mad? People die!"

"I'm sorry, but I can't afford to die here."

"Why, is your girlfriend waiting for you or something?"

"No, there is someone I need to prove myself to."

"Well too bad he will only think of you as a failure."

He appeared in front of me and slashed towards my neck.

'Damn it I can't move!'

I suddenly felt an enormous amount of bloodl.u.s.t. But it wasn't directed to me. The guy who tried to kill me completely froze up. I used this chance to jump away.

Someone fell from the sky.

"Y- you you are the Ho- Hokage!"

'Naruto!'

He went on his knees.

"I'm so sorry sir! I had no other choice but to attack him."

Naruto didn't say anything.

"How about this sir. I'm a Jonin. I will swear my loyalty to you, and do whatever you want."

"While it would be good to have an extra Jonin, I can't forgive you for trying to kill my friend!"

'Huh? He called me his friend.'

He started to release a lot of chakra and the guy started to get squashed.

*SPLURT*

He got completely squashed.

Naruto stood in front of me.

"I'm sorry."

"Huh?"

"I thought that you hated me because I stopped hanging out with you. I don't know why I stopped hanging out with you. It just happened. I thought that you would be angry at me so I didn't have the face to ask if you wanted to hang out again."

"I never hated you. I never thought that we would stay friends anyway. You were completely out of my league with everything you did. There is no way I could stay at your side."

"So I'm the person you want to prove yourself to?"

I nodded.

He gave me a chop on my head.

"You idiot. There is no need to prove yourself. I always thought that you were strong."

'Is he being serious!?'

"But compared to you I-"

He gave me another chop on my head.

"Stop comparing yourself to other people. The only person you should compare yourself to is your old self. If you become better than your old self you should be proud of yourself. And if I compared you now vs you in the past, you have become way better."

"Thank you."

"I'm hungry. Let's go eat some ramen."

He grabbed my hand.

"Huh, what are you doi- AAAHHH!"

We suddenly launched into the air.

"Hahahaha, who knew you could scream like that. Hahahaha!"

I didn't say anything. The balls behind his back turned into a big platform. He told me to sit on it and we started to fly back to Konoha.
