The remaining ninja of Kumogakure took out the seal scrolls and collected the bodies of their companions, while the Fourth Raikage kept looking around vigilantly.
A few minutes later, Darui whispered, “Raikage-sama, it’s done!”
The Fourth Raikage looked in the direction of Konoha, gritted his teeth, and said, “Konoha, Yamanaka Ryo, I’ll remember this!”
After saying that, the Fourth Raikage led his ninja to turn around and left.
On the other hand, Onoki watched Fourth Raikage leave and turned his eyes to Yamanaka Ryo. He was silent for a long time.
“What’s wrong, Tsuchikage-sama? Is it because the scene just now was not good?” Yamanaka Ryo asked with a smile.
Onoki shook his head, “No, I just remembered someone. I couldn’t help but think of him after seeing what you just did.”
“Him? You’re not talking about the Uchiha Madara, are you?”
“How do you know?” Onoki asked with a frown.
“I heard Sandaime say that you have met Uchiha Madara.”
“Well, hearing the name of Uchiha Madara now makes me feel terrified.”
Yamanaka Ryo smiled, “After all, he is the man known as Ninja World Asura!”
Onoki smiled and turned to look at Yamanaka Ryo with a severe expression, “Yamanaka Ryo, I admit that you are powerful, but the current you or the power you just showed, is not a match for him.”
In response to Onoki’s words, Yamanaka Ryo didn’t feel surprised and said indifferently, “If Uchiha Madara is so easily surpassed, then this world is too boring. Well, Tsuchikage-sama, the show is over; we should go back!”
Onoki nodded and closed his eyes as Yamanaka Ryo put his hand on his shoulder and led him back to Konoha.
The two of them returned to Konoha just in time for Kakashi to return to the place of negotiation with Kitsuchi, Kurotsuchi, and Han.
Onoki immediately left Konoha with the three men and the Iwagakure negotiating team. He also promised not to clash with Konoha in the future.
After another week or so, the money from Kirigakure and Iwagakure that was used to compensate for Konoha’s losses arrived.
Sand Ninja also sent an invitation to Yamanaka Ryo, saying that their consultant Elder wanted to invite Yamanaka Ryo.
After talking to Hatake Sakumo, Yamanaka Ryo went to teleport directly to Pakura’s office.
Pakura was working on her business at this time, and Yamanaka Ryo didn’t bother her.
She didn’t see Yamanaka Ryo until she was done with her work.
“Ryo, why didn’t you tell me when you came?”
“I saw you were so busy, so I didn’t want to bother you. What’s wrong? Did you call me for something?”
“Well, it’s about Rasa. Sunagakure was discussing internally how to dispose of Rasa. I proposed to dismiss Rasa from his position as Yondaime Kazekage. Most people in the village agreed, but some people objected. These people are mostly Rasa’s inner circle, and some of them are the old subordinates of Sandaime Kazekage. They trust Rasa, who is Sandaime Kazekage disciple, even more than me.”
“These people are the backbone of Sunagakure. Sunagakure can’t live without them, so the dismissal of Rasa as Kazekage has been dragged on. Now there is a tendency to make a big deal out of a small matter.”
Yamanaka Ryo sneered, “Oh, these people are taking my words as a deaf ear!”
“Ryo, don’t be angry. I asked you to come here because I want to tell you about the situation. For the time being, Rasa’s Kazekage position cannot be removed.”
“Then, do you need my help?”
Pakura quickly shook her head and said, “No, you must not interfere. This is the internal affairs of our village. I can solve this matter; you can rest assured!”
Now that Pakura had said so, Yamanaka Ryo couldn’t force her, “Well, good then. If you need my help, feel free to tell me.”
The two remained gentle for a while before Yamanaka Ryo left.
This time, he teleported to Orochimaru’s base in Otogakure.
Orochimaru couldn’t wait to return to Otogakure after receiving Onoki’s blood and division technique. He wanted to continue his research on how to fuse the three Kekkei Genkai.
After Yamanaka Ryo came to the laboratory, Orochimaru stopped his research and handed Yamanaka Ryo a scroll.
Yamanaka Ryo took the scroll, opened it, and said with some surprise, “So soon?”
“Well, I went to Daimyo Land of Rice Fields and asked for some people specifically to be used as an Edo Tensei sacrifice. After that, I needed to ask something from Yondaime Mizukage, and I called him right away. Now, this scroll is written by Yondaime Mizukage himself. “
The thing was, before that, Yamanaka Ryo promised Kirigakure to help them find the complete instruction to use the ninja sword summon scroll. Although there was no specified time, there was something that always made him felt uncomfortable.
So, Yamanaka Ryo approached Orochimaru and asked him to call Edo Tensei and call Yakura to ask him how to use the ninja sword summon scroll.
Yamanaka Ryo put away the scroll. He then walked to the microscope, looked at Onoki’s blood sample, and then asked, “How is it, Uncle Snake? Did you find anything through Onoki’s blood sample?”
Orochimaru licked his lips and said excitedly, “It’s a bit of a harvest. I’ll tell you the details when I’ve figured it out completely.”
“Well! Then I’ll wait for your good news. How about Xiaolin? How is she doing this time?”
“I don’t know. She’s been in the lab since she got the blood from Tsunade and Hyuga Clan. She asked me to tell you to come and pick her up in a year.”
“A year later? I understand. Then, Uncle Snake, this time, Xiaolin will trouble you.”
“Well, don’t worry!”
“Well, then. Uncle Snake, I’ll go first!”
After saying that, Yamanaka Ryo’s figure disappeared.
In the meantime, Nagato, at the base of Amegakure Akatsuki, called all Akatsuki members.
After everyone arrived, Nagato said, “We have received the latest information that Kakuzu and Hidan died in Konoha.”
Nagato’s words were like a bomb that exploded in the ears of all the members of Akatsuki.
A moment later, Deidara said, “Hey! Really? How could those two guys die?”
“We don’t know the details. Tobi provides the only information we know. He said that Kakuzu and Hidan took Iwagakure’s mission to help Iwagakure destroy Konoha.”
“The previous big explosion in Konoha should be their handiwork. However, this explosion does not seem to have caused much damage to Konoha; instead, it took their lives.” Konan told Akatsuki members about all the information she knew.
Sasori coldly snorted, “Humph! Kakuzu, that guy, still dare to provoke Konoha. He deserves to die. If you only want to talk about this matter, then I will go first.”
“Wait a minute; I have another mission here. Does anyone of you want to go there? I will let you cooperate.”
“I’ll go!” Itachi said.
